wow Blue Posts Round-up: Feb 12

The latest round-up talks about the current situation in PvP, Heirlooms in 7.2, the Balance of Power quest line and improved developer communication.

The Current Situation in PvP

A Live PvP Q/A is coming in March. The devs are happy with Mage/Rogue comps in Arenas, but they will be buffing other classes too, so there is more strong comps.

Regarding overall class balance: in Arenas, we're overall pretty happy with it at the moment. We've been hearing a lot about the prevalence of Rogue/Mage comps lately, and may end up making some changes, but we're more likely to focus on buffing some underperformers than specifically nerfing anyone right now. To put it another way: Rogue/Mage is (and should continue to be) a strong comp, we just want to make sure there's a good number of other strong comps as well.

We made some changes not long ago to Random BG matchmaking to help with healer balance, and have been very happy with the initial results. There's still some edge cases we're looking to iron out (specifically, we're sometimes seeing games where one team has 2 healers and the other has none), and so we're still working on some additional improvements. So far, though, there's been a very noticeable difference overall.

Lastly I'll mention that we're planning another PvP-focused Live Dev Q&A, probably sometime around early to mid March. We'll get a proper announcement out once we've finalized all the details.

No Heirlooms in Patch 7.2

There are currently no plans to make leveling faster via heirlooms come Patch 7.2.

Will 7.2 add the ability to upgrade heirlooms to 110?

No.

Balance of Power Drop Rate

The drop rate of Corrupted EssenceCorrupted Essence will be increased in the future.

Personally i would like it if they would upgrade the drop chance on the friggin essences from EN
Switched character in november (was a feral druid and the RSI just wasnt worth the output) But now ive had 2 essences drop per full EN heroic clear. Just make it 100% from EN heroic that way even alts can speed it up a tiny bit
.

Good news, we're looking into increasing the drop rate of Corrupted EssenceCorrupted Essences in the future, to avoid having players stalling out for too long on this step. I don't have an ETA right now, but it's definitely something on our radar.

Improved Dev Communication

PTR communication has been terrible during Patch 7.1.5 and with 7.2, Blizzard has made a few steps toward making it better. Lore talks about what has been achieved so far and what still needs to be done. Stealth changes were also discusseds as being something unintentional. 

Blizzard LogoLore (Source)

We've been working extremely hard to improve communication. I'm sorry that you're not seeing all of it, so here's a short off-the-top-of-my-head rundown of what we've done in just the past month:

1) Increased Blizzard presence on the PTR forums at least 10-fold compared to 7.1.5
2) Added the Class Development forum to discuss changes that aren't necessarily tied to the PTR
3) More than tripled the frequency of responses via @WarcraftDevs compared to the 7.1.5 timeframe
4) Re-introduced the PTR Patch Notes
5) Started posting PTR Development Notes to give insight into what each build is bringing
6) Made significant changes to Community team structure, and formed a team dedicated entirely to developer communications (on the PTR and Class Development forums, that's Kaivax and me)
7) Revamped several of our internal feedback delivery processes to make sure that when you post something, the developers see it
8) Significantly increased the rate of communication between our Community and development teams, so that CM's can be much more informed on the changes to the game (and take on more of the burden of communication ourselves)

On the list to still do in the next month or so:
1) Significantly increase CM presence on the forums, now that we're more able to answer questions ourselves
2) Begin posting more direct requests for feedback, as 7.2 development has begun to reach a state where we're testing more than just stability (I'll be posting a thread asking for 7.2 Artifact Trait feedback later today)
3) Dramatically increase the rate of live developer Q&As as we get closer to 7.2 release (similar to what we did leading up to Legion launch)
4) Explore new methods for communication, especially for complicated topics like Class Balance or often-overlooked topics like RP, both of which don't fit well into a standard live Q&A
5) Improve our internal knowledge tracking resources so that everyone posting in blue text is on the same page (this sounds a hell of a lot easier than it actually is at a company the size of Blizzard)

Again, I'm really sorry and disappointed that the work we're doing isn't always coming across to you. I'm confident that things will continue to improve, especially as we grow more accustomed to our new processes. A huge part of this is also identifying pain points - you're absolutely right that there are several specs that deserve answers, and we haven't been doing enough to say "yes, that's an issue, we'll talk about it" or "no, we disagree, for these reasons."

I just wanted you to be aware that this is absolutely a priority for us, for the WoW development team, and for Blizzard as a whole. We've been working our butts off to make it happen. I'm sorry it hasn't happened as quickly as all of us may have liked, or possibly in the way that everyone was expecting, but I do think we've improved fairly dramatically since 7.1.5, and we will continue to do so.

After over a year of feedback from people talking about how much people dislike Vulnerable, we should never see a tweet like this one from Muffinus:

To clarify this - Muffinus is a great guy who does a lot of really important work on WoW, but is not on the class design team. What you saw in that tweet was him just trying to find out what the issue was so that he, as a swell dude who wants to help, could ask the class devs about it. It was very much not "the guy who makes Hunters didn't know what Hunters were upset about."

Also a quick suggestion to add to new patch notes: Stealth Changes. NEVER DO THIS. EVER. We will find them and call you guys (the devs) out on them. Please do document ALL changes, even if it's a 0.01% change; at least put them in an "extened patch notes" that are readily available.

This is absolutely, categorically, unfailingly and without exception, NEVER intentional. Most commonly, it happens because something simply got missed (see my previous note about revamping internal communication processes). Other times, it happens because a simple bugfix has unforeseen consequences.

I just wanted to be clear that "lets nerf this spec and just not tell them" is not a strategy we employ. As you said, even if we wanted to, it wouldn't work anyway.

Topic of the thread got derailed a bit and Kaivax came to answer some healer-related questions.

Blizzard LogoKaivax (Source)

Can Healers please receive dev attention? Everything we see, everything we read, all feedback, all dev posts, it is always about DPS. Why do the devs ignore Healer feedback and focus only on DPS?

You totally read my mind. I've lately been asking this same question.

The answer seems to be kind of simple: with activities like healing or maintaining aggro or crowd control, a spec either has the capacity to do enough, or it doesn't. There's a sort of binary "working or not working" aspect to it. Yes, healing is much more complicated than activating a taunt every time it's up, but in general, you don't see many healers pointing at healing meters and feeling bad. They have the capacity to do enough healing. Also, there's constantly a cap on how much effective healing you can do.

But there are some concerns, and we're keeping an eye out for them here and elsewhere. I've observed discussion among our class designers about all six healing specs at some point over the last month, and of course, it was abundant during development of patch 7.1.5 (November and December).

Here are some threads in this forum that we've been following:

https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20753355673

https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20752552599

https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20753336110

https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20753246437

https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20753215956

Chiming in, this is the kinda stuff I want to see more of. Curious choice of threads though.

I have huge lists of threads I keep an eye on for various reasons in notekeeping docs that I refer to when corresponding with different groups of designers. Those were just the most-recent five links in a long list.

Incidentally, that includes threads from our EU forums.

      Quick info:
      Guild name: Disorganized Faction: Alliance Realm EU: Ravencrest Progression: EM 7/7M, Tov 3/3HC, NH 3/10M Raid times: Wed & Sun, 20:00-23:00 (server time) Openings: DPS melee & range Website: http://do-guild.enjin.com (also holds our application form)  
      Disorganized is a mythic raiding guild on Ravencrest, alliance. The guild was founded by five real life friends going into Legion, with the clear goal of overcoming mythic content while relevant on a 2 raid/week basis. We have played since vanilla, most of us clearing all of the content while it was current and achieving titles such as 'Immortal', 'Hand of A'dal', 'Hellscream's Downfall' etc.

      Given the nature of the guilds leadership being real life friends, it is safe to say that we have a very stable guild management. Beyond the officers we have added several players from our past raiding to the roster. So a great deal of the core have known each other and raided together for many years.

      We have established a strong core in the guild by now, but are still building our roster:

      DPS: 
      Melee
      Warrior Rogue Retribution Paladin Demon Hunter Windwalker Monk Range
      Warlock Balance Druid Shadow Priest Elemental Shaman Hunter Mage Healer: 
      Mistweaver Monk Restoration Shaman
      Our progression so far is:

      Emerald Nightmare: 7/7 M
      Trial of Valor: 3/3 HC*
      Nighthold : 3/10 M
      * As we had to first build up our numbers in Legion before we could start mythic progression we have not had any pulls in ToV mythic simply because of time constraints which is why this sits idle at 3/3 HC for the time being.
       
      Raid time:
      We raid Wednesday and Sunday at 20:00 - 23:00 server time, with possible extension of 20ish minutes if close to an important kill.
       
      What can you expect from us?
      Stable and a friendly guild, who takes progression serious while having fun. Outside of raids we have an active player base, that are participating in various activities such as Mythic+ runs, occasional alt/social raids (that are optional of course).
      What do we expect from you?
      Be prepared for raids; meet up in time, reading up on tactics, and have proper consumables. Knowlegde of your class, and the skills to perform to the best of your ability. 

      Make sure to visit our guild website, which also holds our application form at: http://do-guild.enjin.com

      For more information feel free to contact one of our Co-GMs - Elessi (Hawkins#2424) or Kanyeah (Riggs#2962), or Recruitment Officer Steingalen (Ols#2328).

      Broken Shore buildings grant several variable perks. Initially, we thought Blizzard was replacing them and tried experimenting with bonuses in every 7.2 PTR Build, but instead, they are supposed to change periodically.
      We wrote multiple posts about Broken Shore advancement (see Sources below) and based on information gathered from previous articles, we're writing an update on the buildings.
      We found out every building has three permanent perks, accessible when a building is unlocked and four variable perks.
      At the moment, you need to contribute 100 Legionfall War Supplies for advancement. The contribution reward is Legionfall Recompense that contains Gold, Nethershards and also Dauntless tokens (maybe there's even more loot associated with it, with a lower drop chance we haven't seen yet). Prices are subject to change before 7.2 goes live.

(You'll be able to unlock the new Artifact appearance when Mage Tower's active). Veiled Wyrmtongue Chests The power of the Mage Tower pulses across the Broken Shore, revealing the lucrative Veiled Wyrmtongue Chests. Portal Network The Kirin Tor provide access to portals which can be used to move quickly around the Broken Isles. Variable Perks
      Knowledgeable - When you loot an item which grants Artifact Power in a Raid or Dungeon, there's a chance you will receive a bonus Artifact Power token. Light As a Feather - You are able to waterwalk while mounted. Power Overwhelming - Completing World Quests has a chance to grant an extra Artifact Power token. Reputable - Increase reputation gains with the Armies of Legionfall by 30%. Command Center

      Cathedral World Quests With command established, efforts can be focused on assaulting the Cathedral of Eternal Night. Legionfall Reinforcements Commanders of Legionfall are provided with additional support throughout the Broken Isles. Challenge Mission Send worthy champions on a challenging but lucrative mission deep into the heart of the Broken Shore. Variable Perks
      Heavily Augmented - Completing World Quests has a chance to grant you a Defiled Augment Rune. War Effort - Chance when earning Legionfall War Supplies to get bonus Legionfall War Supplies. Well Prepared - Increases all primary stats by 10% while in less challenging areas of the Broken Shore. Worthy Champions - Focus our efforts to provide you with a piece of Legendary Follower Equipment. Nether Disruptor
      When unlocked, you gain the Epic Hunter perk.
      Completing construction of the Nether Disruptor provides you with access to:
      World Bosses The energy from the Nether Disruptor draws the most powerful enemies to the Broken Shore. Unstable Nether Portals The Nether Disruptor's activation causes Unstable Nether Portals to appear across the Broken Shore. Activate them to summon dangerous foes. Armorcrafter Commendations Artisans of the highest level will receive commendations for their efforts, allowing them to craft the most Legendary of items. Variable Perks

Netherstorm - Chance when earning Nethershards to get bonus Nethershards. Reinforced Reins - Allows you to interact with objects while mounted. Seal Your Fate - Each day the Nether Disruptor is active, you can return to the Broken Shore to complete a quest that grants you a free Seal of Broken Fate. (Source 1, Source 2, Source 3)

      We're taking a look at Sisters of the Moon, the fourth boss in the Tomb of Sargeras raid and the first boss of the Wailing Halls wing.
      During the Sisters of the Moon encounter, you'll be fighting Huntress Kasparian, Captain Yathae Moonstrike, Priestess Lunaspyre and Moontalon.
      Did you know?
      Formerly, Huntress Kasparian was named Huntress Naisha.
      Sisters of the Moon
      The Sisters of the Moon served as wardens for the temple long before the avatar of Sargeras was buried beneath it. Even in death, the sisters maintained their vigil, but over the milennia something twisted their ability to distinguish friend from foe. Their madness slowly consumed them, and now any who enter their sacred chambers are put to death.
      Overview
      The Sisters of the Moon are trapped in a fading incorporal state, bound together and sharing health. Between them they maintain only enough power to sustain the physical form of one of them at a time. 
      Huntress Kasparian initiates the fight, followed by Captain Yathae Moonstrike at 70% health remaining, and then followed by Priestess Lunaspyre at 40% health remaining.
      The floor of the Font of Elune is a projected moon that changes through the moon phases. At Full Moon and New Moon the Font of Elune empowers the incorporeal Sisters of the Moon to use Glaive Storm, Incorporeal Shot, and Embrace of the Eclipse.
       In Mythic difficulty, Astral Purge inflicts raid wide damage when players move to a different side of the moon.
       Damage Dealers
      If targetted by Rapid Shot move to light side of the moon to clear stacks of Umbra Suffusion. If affected by Moon Burn move to the other side of the moon to trigger Astral Purge. Defeat the Moontalon before Deathly Screech becomes lethal. If Umbra Suffusion or Lunar Suffusion stacks get to high, move to the other side of the moon to clear them.  Healers
      If targetted by Rapid Shot move to light side of the moon to clear stacks of Umbra Suffusion. If affected by Moon Burn move to the other side of the moon to trigger Astral Purge. If Umbra Suffusion or Lunar Suffusion stacks get to high, move to the other side of the moon to clear them.  Tanks
      Position to allow Moon Glaive to hit 3 players to decrease overall tank damage. If affected by Discorporate move to the other side of the moon to trigger Astral Purge. Avoid taking too many stacks of Lunar Fire. If Umbra Suffusion or Lunar Suffusion stacks get to high, move to the other side of the moon to clear them. Abilities
       Font of Elune - The floor of the font continually changes through the phases of the moon. Standing on the light side of the moon will stack Lunar Suffusion every 3 sec, while standing on the dark side of the moon will stack Umbra Suffusion every 3 sec. Switching from one side of the moon to the other clears all stacks of suffusion and triggers Astral Purge. Lunar Suffusion - Increases Arcane damage taken by 5%. Umbra Suffusion - Increases Shadow damage taken by 5%. Astral Purge - Astral energy erupts from the target inflicting 427,500 Spellshadow damage.  In Mythic difficulty, Astral Purge inflicts 200,000 Spellshadow damage to all allies. Stage One: The Huntress
      Huntress Kasparian Twilight Glaive - Throws a glaive at a target, inflicting 1,075,000 Shadow damage to anyone it hits before returning to the caster.  Moon Glaive - Throws a glaive that bounces between up to 3 targets, inflicting 6,247,500 Physical damage total. The first target hit has Discorporate applied to them, decreasing all healing and absorbtion taken by 75% for 30 sec. Triggering Astral Purge will remove Discorporate. Captain Yathae Moonstrike  Incorporeal Shot - Captain Yathae Moonstrike aims a Incorporeal Shot at her target, inflicting 7,140,000 Shadow damage to the target after 6 sec. Players can move between her and her target, disrupting her aim and causing the damage inflicted to be split among all intercepting players and the target. Twilight Volley - Shadow arrows rain from the sky, inflicting 429,000 Shadow damage every 1.5 sec. Shadow Shot - Fires an arrow inflicting 428,500 Shadow damage. Priestess Lunaspyre  Embrace of the Eclipse - Priestess Lunaspyre shields an ally for 12 sec, absorbing 30,000,000 damage while also warding her enemies for 12 sec, absorbing 1,000,000 points of healing. If the shield expires, it inflicts the remaining absorption as Arcane damage to all enemies within 70 yds of the shield. Any ward that expires inflicts its remaining healing absorption as Shadow damage to all enemies within 8 yds of the ward. Moon Burn - Burns enemies with lunar energy, inflicting 429,000 Arcane damage every 2 sec for 30 sec. Triggering Astral Purge will remove Moon Burn. Lunar Strike - Summons lunar energy inflicting 428,500 Arcane damage Stage Two: Bow of the Night

      A look at Goroth, the first boss in the Tomb of Sargeras raid.
      Tomb of Sargeras has a total of 10 bosses. We're looking at the first one.
      TL;DR Boss Guide
      Throughout the encounter, Infernal Spikes will errupt from the ground, indicated by a crackling ground animation. Standing in the area causes damage, so don't stand in it. They are needed to mitigate damage from Infernal Burning and Shattering Star. Infernal Burning - when he casts it, you need to hide behind spikes, otherwise, you're dead. Shattering Star (indicated by a yellow arrow beneath Goroth) must be aligned to land on spikes. If you have Crashing Comet on you, run away from the group, but don't get too close to spikes as this will destroy them and it might happen you will have no spikes to hide behind during Infernal Burning. Tanks beware of destroying Infernal Spikes with Burning Armor. Goroth
      As punishment for past failures, Goroth's flesh is marred with searing wounds. With every movement this behemoth makes, his flesh crackles and hisses with unending torment, a scourge he is happy to inflict upon those who oppose him.
      Overview
      Goroth continuously gains fel energy until he can unleash Infernal Burning, decimating any enemy it hits. Use Infernal Spikes to survive Infernal Burning and Shattering Star.
       In Mythic difficulty, Infernal Spikes explode when destroyed inflicting raid wide damage.
       Damage Dealers
      Hide behind Infernal Spikes to avoid being hit by Infernal Burning. Avoid destroying Infernal Spikes when targeted with Crashing Comet. Aim Shattering Star to collide with multiple Infernal Spikes to decrease damage taken.  Healers
      Hide behind Infernal Spikes to avoid being hit by Infernal Burning. Avoid destroying Infernal Spikes when targeted with Crashing Comet. Aim Shattering Star to collide with multiple Infernal Spikes to decrease damage taken.  Tanks
      Hide behind Infernal Spikes to avoid being hit by Infernal Burning. Avoid destroying Infernal Spikes when affected by Burning Armor. Abilities
      All Difficulties
       Burning Armor -  Inflicts 1,100,000 Fire damage every 2 sec for 6 sec. Upon expiring, Burning Armor explodes for 1,075,000 Fire damage and applies Melted Armor to all enemies in a 10 yd radius.  Melted Armor - Increases all damage taken by 100%. Crashing Comet - Goroth targets up to 3 enemies with Crashing Comet, inflicting 928,500 Fire damage to all enemies within 10 yds. This explosion destroys pillars. Infernal Spike - Infernal Spikes erupt from the ground, inflicting 1,028,500 Fire damage to anyone in the area.  In Mythic difficulty, when an Infernal Spike is destroyed, it explodes for 300,000 Fire damage. Shattering Star - Goroth selects a target and then hurls a Shattering Star at them after 6 sec, inflicting 1,790,000 Fire damage to all enemies within 200 yards. This damage is decreased by every Infernal Spike the Shattering Star collides with. Any other targets struck by the Shattering Star while it is traveling to its target take 537,500 Fire damage.   Infernal Burning - Goroth ignites everyone he can see, inflicting 2,645,000 Fire damage immediately and 1,060,000 Fire damage every 2 sec for 10 sec. Heroic Difficulty+
       Fel Eruption - Fel lava erupts from the edges of the room, leaving pools that inflict 321,000 Fire damage every 1 sec. Mythic Difficulty
       Rain of Brimstone - Goroth calls down 4 meteors, each inflicting 10,000,000 Fire damage divided evenly between each of the targets. A Brimstone Infernal will spawn if a meteor fails to hit any targets.  Brimstone Infernal  Fel Fire - Ignites the area surrounding the caster, inflicting 733,409 Fire damage to all nearby enemies every 1 sec. Lasts 8 sec. Loot Tables
