wow Patch 7.2 Background Download Available

14 posts in this topic

Patch 7.2 is now available in the Battle.net app as background download. When can we expect it go live?

Patch 7.2 Release Date

  • This week, Blizzard added the quest "An Urgent Warning" to Class Order Halls that hints at 7.2 and the Broken Shore
  • Season 3 items are tied to Patch 7.2
  • TL;DR
    • Patch 7.1.5 does not contain Season 3 items so the latest date for 7.2 to go live is the day when Season 3 starts.
  • Patch 7.2 PTR
    • Having played so much on PTR, I'd say the patch is pretty close to release and receives final updates.

Blizzard tweeted that there were no plans to start Season 3 this or next week, so the week of March 28 seems to be the date to look out for.

I really hope soon (your suggested 28th would be fine). I realize Tomb isn't going to be open at launch but I'm sorta bored right now. The suramar quest got wrapped up pre nighthold launch and even though nighthold was a fine raid, I have no complaints, its luster has run off for me already. So some new stuff to do would be awesome, plus the faction mounts finally being implemented is exciting, especially the stormdrake. I am horribad at pvp, I que for a bg and it just mercy kills us immediately, its like "nope you got ardvark on your team, we gonna save you 15 minutes and end this now" so I have no hope of getting the pvp stormdrake ones.

I just finished all my traits and saw the downloadeder the next day. My casual boo face can't stop crying now.

Honestly, I'm a little disappointed the new patch will be rolling out already.  I mean, I came back to WoW for the legion expansion and granted I came back a little late, I feel like I have been trying to play catch up since December.  I just recently switched from playing my fury warrior to playing enhancement shaman as my main, and I really want to be fully caught up when the new patch hits.

I hate when your playing catch up and all the 1-2 month old content is all dried up.  It loses a lot of the fun when everyone in the group is way over geared and the content isnt challenging anymore.  Of course I understand that some people aren't playing catchup and have been caught up throughout the expansion, but I feel there is a large majority of casual players who never really get to experience the new content firsthand because they cannot keep up with the pace of the content.

...and a huge number of players who have been playing the entire expansion are feeling the content to be just about right, in comparison to Warlods, where there was virtually no new content and the only people who that appeased were the ones who rarely played.

I knew I would get responses like this, my point was that no matter what, some people will get left behind (who play too little) and some people will get bored (who play too much), and some people will play the perfect amount and be happy with the pace.  

Im not complaining or telling Blizz to speed up or slow down, just commenting on my perspective.  And how many people are really "starving for new content"?  Isn't there a huge portion of players that havent even completed Mythic NH?  If you haven't completed the hardest raid, how could you be starving for new content?  

WoW has released so much great content over the years, it just sucks that as soon as new content is released the old content loses its luster.  I started playing WoW during vanilla and got to raid MC, Onyxia's Lair, AQ40, etc. but I was on and off for several years.  For example I missed most of BC, played some WotK, played some MoP, missed all of WoD, and thats on me for not playing the game continuously for 12 years... but how many people have really played through every expansion?

I guess I'm just lamenting on the fact that I missed alot of great content and now I'll never really get to experience it the way it was meant to be enjoyed.  Now that I am into Legion and loving it, I am really trying to catch up and experience new content as it arrives, but I am having a little trouble catching up while maintaining regular life activities.  #nerdproblems

The reason your starving for content is  because they made it too easy to get gear.   No other expansion had 4 raids within a year of release.

Who else is ready for flying!? So over the achievement/rep grinding (which are all things all of us would do WITH flying anyways!) and waiting months after an expansion, like what has been introduced with the last two expansions....What happened to just letting us buy it after hitting max level?

I'm still not bored with the current patch and content. But if 7.2 is coming in the very near future I'll gladly have Blizzard serve me an encore. For me Legion has been the best expansion of Blizzard.

If we follow your mind, you shouldnt give ANY feedback on pvp as well, if you're not 2.8k+.

 

No sir, you're wrong, lots of players already finished heroic, and dont give a real shit for mythic raiding, mostly because they have no reason to spend all of their money on food, repairs, prepots etc.

 

For me, my 'patch content' was finished when i completed my suramar questline and finished the entire nighthold.

More content is always good, but I can't help but wonder if they are releasing the raids too soon again. Many guilds are still progressing through Nighthold, and that will likely be abandoned once Tomb of Sargeras becomes available. It's a bit of a Catch-22, as too little content makes players leave because they are bored, and too much can make them feel overwhelmed.

This is more a matter of pacing than anything else. Blizzard tends to release raids too quickly, followed by very long content droughts as they prepare the next expansion. I would rather see them spaced out a bit better, or a small filler raid like Ruby Sanctum added in the interval between expansions so we always have something to do, rather than grinding out the same content a dozen times on alts.

The catch up here isn't nearly as bad as WOD, when you had so much gated behind cooldowns. The difficulty is being raised for dungeons and dungeons are being added to the group finder so that content will become relevant again for awhile. Grinding AP and order hall resources is the only catch up stuff you have to worry about.

      The invulnerable bug will hopefully be eradicated after today's hotfixes, there's a lot of quest fixes and multiple artifact challenge appearances will no longer stack up on top of each other in class halls!
      April 25 (source)
      Class Halls
      Players who have unlocked multiple Challenge appearances for their Artifacts will no longer see more than one of them on top of each other in their Class Halls. Items
      Players should be able to transmogrify tabards to the appearance of the Legionfall Tabard. Butcher's Bone Apron should no longer provide a benefit that persists in unintended circumstances. Player versus Player
      Fixed a bug that was causing some players to become invulnerable in instanced PvP. The quest "Something Different" now requires 1 brawl victory (was 3 brawl completions). The quest now rewards a Soldier's Legacy Artifact Power token, 3 Marks of Honor, and a Brawler's Footlocker. Quests
      Corrine the Deceiver should now respawn as expected when killed on the quest “Cult Culling”. Fixed a bug that was causing errors opening Stolen Crates during “Arming the Army”. “Full Fel” now correctly awards quest credit. Resolved issues where some Paladins were not able to obtain the letter starting the Maximillian questline. A certain Escape Rope in a secret treasure cave is now easier to see. It’s dark in there! Previous hotfixes.

      A look at Patch 7.2's most crucial aspects for returning players and alt-friendliness - Artifact Knowledge, gearing and leveling.
      Artifact Knowledge
      Is the rate at which you gain Artifact Power. Your main goal should be to reach Artifact Knowledge Level 26 as soon as possible, because there's a significant increase in the multiplier in 7.2. If you lack Order Resources, keep in mind you can buy Order Resources Cache for Blood of Sargeras. Patch 7.2.5 added a bag with up to 4,000 Order Resources (Abundant Order Resources Cache), but we don't know what plans Blizzard has for it just yet.
      Artifact Knowledge Level 25 = 24,900% Artifact Knowledge Level 26 = 100,000% The % increase at AK Level 26 is huge, don't waste your time with World Quests or other AP content before you get it!
      Reaching Artifact Knowledge Level 1 - 25
      Knowledge is Power is a repeatable quest that can be turned in for 500 Order Resources up to Artifact Knowledge Level 25. If you have a main that has reached AK Level 25, you can buy Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IV for 1,000 Order Resources that can be sent to your alts to instantly reach AK Level 20. If you boost your AK Level with the research compendium to a certain level, the last 5 Artifact Knowledge Levels must be reached by repeating the Knowledge is Power (2,500 Order Resources) With AK Level cap being increased up to 50, you'll be able to buy additional compendiums At AK Level 30: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-V At AK Level 35: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-VI At AK Level 40: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-VII At AK Level 45: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-VIII At AK Level 50: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IX Example: Let's assume you've got AK Level 25 on your main and can purchase a compendium that will instantly teach your alt AK Level 25 Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IV.  Using it will make your alt have AK 20, but the last 5 levels have to be reached, by repeating Knowledge is Power five times. Artifact Knowledge Level 25+
      At this time, you will no longer be able to continue your research You need to start and finish Assault on Broken Shore to be able to research again After you finish the Assault, the accept the "Seeking Lost Knowledge" quest at Deliverance Point Once finished, return to your Order Hall and turn in Delivering Lost Knowledge You can now continue your Artifact Knowledge Research (Discovered Lost Knowledge) and don't forget to learn AK Level 26 by consuming Empowered Elven Tome in your inventory Gear
      Another interesting aspect for returning players and alts is gear. Patch 7.2 makes gearing up super fast.
      Crafted Gear & Obliterum
      The Obliterum Forge is now available to everyone and Obliterum has never been cheaper Crafted items have ilvl 835 Obliterum can upgrade items up to ilvl 875 Dauntless Items
      Discover an item appropriate for your specialization with ilvl 850+ Can be purchased from Warmage Kath'leen for 400 Nethershards each (e.g. Dauntless Hood) you shouldn't be really spending Nethershards on them, because they drop in Demon Assault Scenarios and from all Broken Shore content (bags, caches, mobs, the Sentinax) Demon Assaults
      Check the Broken Isles map periodically for Demon Assaults. Not only are they a great source of experience, you'll receive Dauntless tokens and epic quality gear from the last boss Dungeons
      Normal dungeons drop ilvl 825+ Heroic dungeons drop ilvl 845+ Timewalking drop ilvl 855+ Mythic dungeons drop ilvl 865+ Grandiose Armor Kits
      World Quest rewards (Farseer's Grandiose Armor Kit) that instantly upgrade items from your Order Hall Set to ilvl 870. Relinquished Items
      Discovers an item appropriate for your loot specialization with an ilvl 880+ Relinquished items (e.g. Relinquished Relic) can be purchased from Thaumaturge Vashreen for 5,000 Nethershards each The items have a chance to contain a Legendary item, so if you're a freshly-leveled 110 and would like to slot target your Legendary items, Relinquished items are your safest bet World Quests
      Broken Isles World Quest rewards now scale up to ilvl 865 World Bosses
      When Nether Disruptor's up, you'll have access to Broken Shore World Bosses that drop ilvl 900+ loot. Don't forget to bring a Seal of Broken Fate for bonus rolls. Leveling
      Mostly revolves around the Armies of Legionfall reputation grind, more information can be found in our guide.
      Focus your effort to unlock flying at least on one of your characters (Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part Two) Flying's account-wide and once unlocked, you can use it on any character (even at Level 100) Flying significantly speeds up leveling

      Patch 7.2 added several new Warlock Pet glyphs and we're looking at how to get them!
      Glyph of the Shadow Succubus
      There's a succubus standing near Tehd Shoemaker. She's called Syaith. If you're a scribe and /kiss her, you'll get Technique: Glyph of the Shadow Succubus. The trick is she only appears during the World Quest "Where There is a Whip...". You don't need to have Broken Shore World Quests unlocked to get it according to many reports from redditors that were able to find her.

      Credits go to redditor Sonotmethen
      Here are some tips from redditors!
      Comment from discussion Scribs can get Glyph of the Shadow Succubus for free today!. It seems you don't even need to be max level or have Inscription maxed out to get the pattern. Comment from discussion Scribs can get Glyph of the Shadow Succubus for free today!. Glyph of the Fel Succubus
      Technique: Glyph of the Fel Succubus seems to be a random drop from Cathedral of Eternal Night.
      The current version of the Fel Succubus is bugged (thanks to @Plaguestorm for pointing out), which results in a much weaker version of the regular Succubus pet in terms of damage output. It's advised not to use it until the issues get hotfixed.
      Comment from discussion Protip: Glyph of Shadow Succubus is obtainable right now..
      Glyph of Wrathguard
      Technique: Glyph of Wrathguard can be purchased from the Armies of Legionfall Quartermaster Warmage Kath'leen for 2,500 Nethershards.
