New Features

The Broken Shore

Return to the front lines of the Burning Legion’s invasion in this new Scenario. Complete it to unlock a new questing hub with World Quests that make up a new Emissary and faction: Armies of Legionfall.

Join in a new region-wide, cross-faction effort to construct buildings to fight against the Legion’s stronghold.

New Dungeon: The Cathedral of Eternal Night

The upper chambers of the Tomb of Sargeras were once a place of worship to Elune. Since the Legion's invasion, fel minions have desecrated this holy place, twisting it into their own image. Now, this site will host a battle that could turn the tide of the invasion. While the Armies of Legionfall engage the fel army directly, a small group of heroes infiltrates the upper reaches of the cathedral in a desperate hope to return the Aegis of Aggramar to its resting place. Inside this new dungeon, you’ll face:

  • Agronox  - This ancient served the night elves priestesses of the Temple of Elune, tending the beautiful Hanging Gardens. But after the malevolence of the Legion infected the Cathedral, the guardian absorbed fel energy through his roots. Now the twisted Agronox spreads corruption throughout the sanctuary he once protected, believing he has finally achieved his ideal state.
  • Thrashbite the Scornful  - Smashspite's detestable brother, Thrashbite has been dispatched to wipe out the mortals entering the cathedral's grand library. The dimwitted mo'arg lacks any respect for knowledge or learning, feeling petty satisfaction as he crashes through ancient artifacts and tramples priceless tomes.
  • Domatrax - With the Aegis of Aggramar socketed back into its cradle, Domatrax leads an onslaught of demons to destroy the relic.
  • Mephistroth  - With the forces of Azeroth pushing against his front line, Mephistroth has fallen back to the Cathedral of Eternal Night, where he will employ all his cunning to ensure the heroes fail in securing the Aegis of Agrammar.

Class Campaigns

Every class continues its campaign to unify in the war effort. Your Class Hall is the base from which you will embark on a new quest chain, find a new potential Follower, and discover new class-specific World Quests.

All new epic class mounts are now available! Complete the new class mount quests to obtain yours.

Demon Assaults

The Burning Legion is assaulting Azeroth with renewed determination. Look for Broken Isles zones to come under attack, fight to drive the Legion back, and defend the lands of your new allies.

Pet Battle Dungeon

Something nefarious is going on in the world of pet battles, and it’s up to you to look into it. If you have at least one level 25 battle pet, speak to Breanni in Dalaran to get directions to this new scenario.

PvP Brawls

A series of new twists on popular player-versus-player activities are on the way. Starting with “Southshore vs. Tarren Mill”, “Gravity Lapse”, and “Warsong Scramble”, PvP Brawls offer a variety of mode, rules, and scenic changes to the usual Battleground gameplay. Look for the Brawl option in the Group Finder (default hotkey: i) Player vs. Player tab, under the Casual selection.

Updated Features

Transmogrification Sets

A new ‘Sets’ tab in the Appearances UI is where you’ll find this new way of tracking item sets from previous Raids, PvP Seasons, and more.

Flying in the Broken Isles

Take your final steps to complete the Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part TwoBroken Isles Pathfinder, Part Two achievement to unlock flying in the Broken Isles.

Class Combat Updates

The launch of Legion included many updates to class animations, sounds, and spell effects. These will continue in Patch 7.2 with updates to Hunters, Death Knights, and Balance Druids. More are on the way!

Legion Reputation Updates

Reputation earned beyond Exalted will now contribute towards earning additional rewards from Broken Isles faction emissaries. These new reward caches have a rare chance to reward new faction mounts, such as the Highmountain ElderhornHighmountain Elderhorn, Wild Dreamrunner, and Leywoven Flying Carpet.

New World Quests

Changes

Classes

  • Player Taunts now increase all threat caused against the target by 400% (was 200%).
  • The Tauren and Dwarf racial bonuses BrawnBrawn and Might of the MountainMight of the Mountain now correctly increase heals by 2% (was 1%).
  • Druid
    • StarfallStarfall duration and tick rate is no longer affected by Haste.
    • Guardian
      • Intimidating RoarIntimidating Roar now roots targets in place (was a 50% snare). MangleMangle damage increased by 15%.
      • ThrashThrash (Bear) direct damage increased by 15%.
      • SwipeSwipe (Bear) damage reduced by 25%.
        • Developers’ Notes: This should result in overall Guardian damage remaining roughly the same, perhaps slightly higher. But it will frontload their damage more, which should help with burst threat.
  • Hunter
    • Beast Mastery
      • Dire FrenzyDire Frenzy will now additionally cause your pet to charge up to 25 yards toward the target.
  • Mage
  • Monk
    • Chi WaveChi Wave replaces MistwalkMistwalk talent:
      • A wave of Chi energy flows through friends and foes, dealing Nature damage or healing. Bounces up to 7 times to targets within 25 yards.
  • Paladin
  • Priest
    • Shadow
      • Mental FortitudeMental Fortitude (Artifact Trait) shield cannot exceed damage absorbed of 4% of player total health (was 8%), and now correctly calculates healing from Vampiric TouchVampiric Touch.
  • Rogue
  • Warlock
    • Affliction
      • Refreshing Reap SoulsReap Souls will no longer overwrite the current buff’s duration with a new one. The new duration will now be added to the existing duration, up to a maximum duration of 60 seconds.
      • Reap SoulsReap Souls (Artifact ability) now has a 5 second cooldown.
        • Developers’ note: Previously, casting Reap SoulsReap Souls at 5 stacks (which would grant 25 seconds of the buff) with 20 seconds currently left on the buff would just overwrite your old 20 second buff with a 25 second buff. Now, in this case it will increase the buff duration to 45 seconds.
      • Souls are now reset to 0 at the start of an encounter. The buff is also canceled at the start of an encounter.
        • Reason: Souls are a resource, and we have a rules about resetting your resources/stacks of a buff before an encounter, so that every attempt is standardized. Having souls the first time you fight a raid boss feels good, but it makes every other attempt after that feel worse by comparison.
  • Warrior
    • ChargeCharge (and InterceptIntercept) now deals damage on arrival, and its snare begins after you hit your target.

Class Halls

  • Added a Night Watch Mariner to the top deck in the Maw of Souls while Teeming is active.
  • Killing Cove Seagulls should now add Enemy Forces credit.
  • New Affix: Bursting (level 4)
    • When slain, non-boss enemies explode, causing all players to suffer 10% of their maximum health in damage over 4 seconds. This effect stacks.
  • New Affix: Fel Explosives (level 7)
    • Creatures have a chance to summon an Explosive Orb at a nearby location that will explode, inflicting damage of 50% of the player’s maximum health.
  • New Affix: Quaking (level 7)
    • Periodically, players will Quake, inflicting damage of 20% of the player’s maximum health and interrupting spell casts of themselves and nearby allies.
  • New Affix: Grievous (level 7)
    • While below 90% health, players are afflicted with Grievous Wound.
  • The Overflowing affix has been removed.
  • The Bolstering affix range has been reduced to 30 yards (was 45 yards).
    • Developers’ notes: The intent of this change is to allow players more opportunities for crowd control.
  • Necrotic RotNecrotic Rot will now expire after leaving combat. Duration reduced to 9 seconds (was 10 seconds).
    • Developers’ notes: This should eliminate the situation where players were waiting for Necrotic to fall off after killing enemies, and it should give tanks more opportunities for resets while in combat.

  • Fortified damage bonus lowered to 30% (was 40%).
  • Tyrannical damage bonus lowered to 15% (was 20%).

    • Shorter dungeons, such as Maw of Souls, now award a proportionately lower amount of Artifact Power.
    • Artifact Power bonuses have been added to your weekly chest rewards. These increase based on the highest level Mythic Keystone you completed.

Items

  • Set tokens for all raids from Serpentshrine to Siege of Orgrimmar have been updated to provide loot for your spec on right-click, in the same manner as newer raid set tokens. The vendor functionality of these items has not been changed.
  • A number of unavailable items belonging to PvP sets from the Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King expansions have been made available again from vendors.
  • Class Order Hall Sets can now be upgraded to item level 870 via rare items (Farseer's Grandiose Armor KitFarseer's Grandiose Armor Kit) obtainable from Broken Shore World Quests.

Looking forward to new dungeon and M+ stuff, I love 5-man content.

Really not looking forward to quaking though... That one seems like a pain. Nice that overflowing is being removed though, sounds I won't get to have to deal with that one.

(Also about time they added Glyph of Wrathguard... You'd think they'd have released that along with every other glyph at release...)

This isn't going to adversely effect Mythic + at all, nope no way that wont kill our M+ dps on short encounters.

      Patch 7.3.5 goes live this week and here are the official patch notes!
      The release date of Patch 7.3.5 is January 16 for NA & January 17 for EU. Zone scaling, Ulduar Timewalking, new story in Silithus, changes to combat resurrection mechanics in Mythic Keystone dungeons, and more content is available in Patch 7.3.5!
      In addition to our coverage that can be found by visiting the Patch 7.3.5 hub, there are a few changes worth noting:
      The patch does not contain any major class changes. Combat resurrections mechanics in Mythic Keystone dungeons now function just like in raids. When you start a run, you begin with a single charge and an additional charge is accumulated every 10 minutes. All combat resurrection spells share a single pool of charges to a maximum of 5 charges. Accounts protected by an Authenticator and SMS Protect gain four extra backpack slots. All dungeons reward Personal Loot now. The official patch notes do not take the recently announced changes to Legendary tokens in Patch 7.3.5 into account. Allied Races will be available later and there's no single mention in the official patch notes about them. Blizzard (Source)

      All corresponding dungeons and the rewards therein now scale as well.
      ULDUAR TIMEWALKING
      A long-forgotten evil has awakened once more. Travel back in time with 10-30 other adventurers to cleanse Ulduar of Yogg-Saron’s evil influence. While you journey through this memorable Wrath of the Lich King raid, your character will be scaled to player level 80.

      MYTHIC KEYSTONE DUNGEONS
      Combat resurrections mechanics in Mythic Keystone dungeons now closely mirror how they function in a raid encounter. When you start a Mythic Keystone dungeon, you will begin with one charge, and accumulate additional charges every 10 minutes. All combat resurrection spells now share a single pool of charges to a maximum of 5 charges.
      HOLIDAYS
      Holiday dungeons are now available to all players starting at level 20. Items that drop from these dungeons will scale to your current level. In addition, keep an eye out for new items in many upcoming holidays, such as new Lunar Festival hats and a sturdier Sturdy Love Fool.

      Self-oriented photographers rejoice! Your S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera is now easier to obtain, and it has new background filters. Selfie Cam Mark I is available at level 15 in Stormwind or Orgrimmar via a quest, and you can upgrade to the Mark II Selfie Cam after completing a new level 30 group quest.
      We’ve also added the following backgrounds, but you’ll have to figure out how to unlock them.

      ACHIEVEMENTS
      With the update to Ulduar difficulty, the following changes have been made to Achievements that are obtainable in Ulduar: All existing 10-player and 25-player Ulduar Achievements have been moved to the Legacy -> Raids tab. New Achievements have been added to the Dungeons & Raids -> Lich King Raid tab. Anyone who earned either the 10- or 25-player versions of these Achievements should receive the new Achievement upon logging in. The new Glory of the Ulduar Raider Achievement should now award both the Reins of the Rusted Proto-Drake and the Reins of the Ironbound Proto-Drake mounts. CLASSES
      Touch of the Grave (Undead Racial) damage increased by 25% for Undead Death Knights, Hunters, Monks, Rogues, and Warriors.

Cobra Shot (Rank 3), learned at level 52, now increases damage by 100%. Survival Raptor Strike (Rank 1) damage reduced by 29%. Raptor Strike (Rank 2), learned at level 52, now increases damage by 40%. Monk Windwalker Blackout Kick now costs 3 Chi (was 1) when it is learned at level 3.

      Uncommon, Rare, and Epic quality items now have the same potential item budget at every item level. Weapon melee (white) damage is now the same for uncommon, rare, and epic weapons at all item levels. Developers’ notes: This changes the power of lower item level weapons and armor to modern standards; all items above item level 463 have always functioned this way. TOYS
      A few toys that cause players other than the caster to take involuntary action (such as the Piccolo of the Flaming Fire or Tickle Totem) no longer function on targets outside the instigator’s party or raid group. The Neural Silencer is also more effective against several of these toys. Fixed a bug that caused player characters to not look into their S.E.L.F.I.E. cameras directly. USER INTERFACE
      Accounts protected by an Authenticator and Blizzard SMS Protect gain four extra backpack slots.

      Allied Races
      Patch 7.3.5 contains files for Allied Races, giving Blizzard the opportunity to enable them at any time after the patch goes live. During PTR testing, we looked at unlock requirements, special Heritage Armor, racials, tabards, and unlock scenarios. Four Allied Races will be available before Battle for Azeroth launches. Dark Iron Dwarves and Zandalari Trolls are gated behind the new expansion's campaign. We still have no information about their class options, but in a Q/A, Blizzard mentioned they are exploring the option to allow Dark Iron Dwarves to be Death Knights and Zandalari Trolls will be able to roll Druids.
      Unlock Requirements
      You must purchase Battle for Azeroth and have an existing character of at least level 110 on the destination realm of your Allied Race character. Allied Races are also gated behind reputation and various achievements. All requirements are account-wide.


      Heritage Armor
      Level up an Allied Race character from 20 to 110 and unlock special account-wide armor that's not restricted by type.

      Highmountain Tauren Druid Forms
      Highmountain Tauren have unique Druid forms. In our preview, we looked at their travel, cat, bear and flight forms!

      A new quest line is available in Patch 7.3.5. Pet collectors will be interested in the Mailemental pet and a portable mailbox (Katy's Stampwhistle) always comes in handy!

      Flying Changes in Patch 7.3.5
      You can now fly in Eastern Kingdoms, Kalimdor, Pandaria, Northrend and Deepholm just by purchasing Expert Riding.

      Legendary Items in Patch 7.3.5
      While there are no new Legendaries in Patch 7.3.5, you can now purchase an item for 175 Wakening Essences that allows spec-based Legendary item targeting.

      The devs also posted additional clarifications for the Purified Titan Essence token.

      New Companion Pets
      A new Pet Battle meta-achievement and two new companions can be earned in 7.3.5.

      New Hunter Pet Tames

      New Zones
      Blizzard added new Allied Races Scenarios, faction embassies and there's even a scenario for Uuna! Please note that these Scenarios haven't been tested on PTR.
      Allied Races & Uuna Scenarios
      A preview of Fate's Veil, Forge of Aeons and other zones added in Patch 7.3.5.

      Faction Embassies
      Faction embassies have been added to Orgrimmar and Stormwind. They serve for recruiting Allied Races; almost all faction leaders can be found there. Additionally, Baine Bloodhoof, Saurfang, Trade Prince Gallywix and Nathanos all received new models.

      Faction Embassies Preview #2
      Our second preview focuses on changes to embassies throughout 7.3.5 testing.

      Nightborne Hub (Uninstanced Nighthold)
      The uninstanced version of the Nighthold has been updated with new NPCs and portals. Pandaren are teaching the Nightborne the way of the Monk and more!
       
      Legion Epilogue
      Both factions have established base camps in Silithus. Will the price of victory be the very lifeblood of Azeroth?

      Ogmot the Mad Foreshadowing Riddles
      Ogmot the Mad is a new rare mob that can be found in Silithus. He drops Journal of Ogmot the Mad, where we learn how eager he is to become the vessel of the Old Gods. The journal has ten pages and covers interesting events.

      Seething Shore Battleground
      The new battleground is located off the coast of Silithus. It's a resource battle and both factions need to collect Azerite nodes to claim victory.

      Trial of Style Season 2 Rewards
      A couple of new items and rewards have been added to the Trial of Style micro-holiday. New sets cost Trial of Style Tokens.

      Ulduar Timewalking
      Ulduar is the second Timewalking raid, available during Wrath Timewalking. Defeating Algalon now rewards both titles (Observed) and completing the Ulduar raid achievements both mounts (Glory of the Ulduar Raider). There are probably no plans to introduce a transmoggable Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings and the raid now has a single difficulty.

      Vicious War Fox Mount
      The PvP mount datamined back in Patch 7.3 is finally available for 1 Vicious Saddle.

      Zone Scaling
      A highly anticipated feature of 7.3.5 is the introduction of zone scaling. Zones have level caps, difficulty and quest rewards scale with your level. At level 58, you can choose between Outland or Northrend, at level 80 it becomes a choice between Cataclysm zones & Pandaria. Find out more about zone scaling below!

      Zone Caps
      In addition to zone scaling, all zones now have chapters and completing a fixed number of quests is no longer required for Loremaster achievements.

      The Postmaster has an important job for you! Check out our guide for the Postmaster quest chain of Patch 7.3.5.
      A new quest line is started by looting Lost Mail in Dalaran in Patch 7.3.5. Earn a pet, the Postmaster title, and a portable mailbox on a 3-hour cooldown!
      To learn more about Patch 7.3.5 check out our content hub here.
      Prerequisites
      The quest is started by looting Lost Mail that spawns every two hours at the mailbox near the stairs to the Violet Citadel (Dalaran). Alternatively, players that have completed the quest line will have a tradable Lost Mail in their inventory.

      Note: The quest chain can only be started after you either loot Lost Mail, or get one from other players that have completed the The Total Package achievement.
      Quest Chain
      Lost Mail
      Lost Mail is started by looting Lost Mail. The first objective is to deliver the Lost Mail to Madam Goya in Dalaran Underbelly. She's at the Black Market Auction House. If there i a lot of PvP going on, it's a good idea to hire an Underbelly Guard for 5 minutes from Raethan for 5 Gold.
      Next go to a mailbox. You will receive the following letter from the Postmaster:
      Dear <Name>,
      It has come to my attention that you handled the delivery of a missing parcel. For that, you have my gratitude! We are in somewhat of a crunch here in the mailroom, and I have need of a capable courier. If you are interested, please visit my office. You will find the entrance behind the Magus Commerce Exchange.
      The mailroom can be accessed by clicking the Mail Tube (flower pot) near the pet graveyard. You will be teleported to the mailroom and the Postmaster will have a new quest for you.

      Return to Sender
      Accept Return to Sender and return 9 Rejected Letters that have broken loose in the mailroom.

      A Huge Package
      For the next quest, you need to deliver 1,362 pieces of solid stone to the Ethereal Portal in Dalaran. Heft the solid stone in the mailroom, use the Mail Tube to return back to Dalaran and deliver the stone to the Ethereal Portal near the Antonidas Statue in Dalaran. After picking up the stone, you will only be able to walk really slowly (Encumbered), but abilities like Blink or Sprint can still help you to move faster for a brief period of time. At the portal you learn that Nexus-Prince Haramad is mad, because he received another delivery of the blasted stone. Return back to the mailroom to turn in the quest.

      Priority Delivery
      An adventurer of another time has forgotten to loot Invincible's Reins from the Lich King. Use the mailroom portal to the Frozen Throne to recover it, go to Steam Pools in Feralas and find Johnny Awesome. The fastest way to get there is by using the portal hub in Dalaran to teleport to the nearest city or Cataclysm portals in Stormwind / Orgrimmar.

      Service with a Smile
      You find out that Johnny already looted the steed during his raid last week and he orders you to sell Invincible's Reins to Gott Weedlespan in Feralas. 
      Note: During PTR testing, we found out that Gott Weedlespan is hostile to everyone that is at war / hated with Gadgetzan. We can't verify, if Blizzard already fixed this bug, but you simply can't sell Invincible's Reins to him. If you worked toward Avast Ye, Admiral! last year to purchase the Jolly Roger toy, chances are you are still hated by the Bilgewater Cartel and cannot continue the quest chain until a hotfix is released.

      Anyway, Gott gives you Bulging Sack of Gold in exchange for Invincible's Reins. Return back to Johnny to turn in the quest.
      Due Reward
      Go to the Sludge Fields in Hillsbrad Foothills and place Twinkles' favorite toy by his grave in honor of his memory. Teleport back to Dalaran and go back to the mailroom.

      The Mail Must Flow
      Help the Postmaster sort at least 15 leters within 60 seconds. Speak to the Postmaster to start the mini-game. 6 mail tubes appear with names of the continents (Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, Outland, Northrend, Pandaria, Broken Isles). Letters with addresses (zones) will appear at the botom of your screen and you must match letters with the correct mail tube.

      Examples: Cosmowrench, Netherstorm > Outland, The Argent Stand, Zul'Drak > Northrend, Astranaar, Ashenvale > Kalimdor, Deliverance Point, Broken Shore > Broken Isles, Altar of Sha'tar, Shadowmoon Valley > Outland, Gadgetzan, Tanaris > Kalimdor, Conquest Hold, Grizzly Hills > Northrend.
      At this point, we had two letters from the Postmaster in the mailbox. The latest one rewarded a Bulging Package that contained Katy's Stampwhistle, a tradable Lost Mail and 24 Solid Stone.
      Completing The Mail Must Flow quest grants the The Total Package achievement. After completing the quest, you can start the mini-game again and sort 30 letters in one minute to receive the Priority Mail achievement that grants the Postmaster title and the Mailemental companion pet.
      The pet has the following flavor text:
      "The Postmaster is often described as esoteric, mystical, even inexplicable. For the precious little known about the enigmatic mail-master, perhaps none outside of the wax seal can confirm the existence of the fantastical letter-loving Mailemental."

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a growing raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.

      We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 1/11 Mythic, Heroic AOTC Antorus progression.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
      We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for raiding the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      Healers: YES. Will consider all specs, but would prefer to add a Holy/Disc Priest or Resto Druid.  To be clear, we have 1 core healer spot available.  
      DPS: No. Will consider exceptional applicants.
      Tank: NO. No current needs.
