7.2 Content Release Schedule

Recommended Posts

The release timeline for 7.2 has been unveiled, covering the next 3 weeks and on. We've got the Legion Assaults, PvP Brawls, new followers and Order Hall upgrades, class-specific World Quests, Class Mounts and the actual tomb of Sargeras raid to look forward to! It's also explained how the time gating of certain content isn't just to bother us, but actually has very specific story-related reasons.

We’ve seen some confusion around the availability and timing of various aspects of the 7.2 patch, and we’d like to clarify our plans for releasing the remaining pieces of Patch 7.2’s content:

  • Week 2 (next week): Legion Assaults begin, first PvP Brawl becomes available
  • Week 3: Chapter 5 of the Class Order Hall campaign unlocks, which activates new followers, new Order Hall upgrades, and class-specific World Quests
  • Week 4+: Ongoing story pieces unlock, leading up to the eventual opening of the Tomb of Sargeras raid, and the ability to earn Class Mounts

Several of these pieces tie into the overarching story being told in 7.2: our return to the Broken Shore for vengeance, followed by the Legion’s response, and the eventual buildup toward the assault on the Tomb of Sargeras and Kil’jaeden himself. With the release of Patch 7.2, that series of events is set into motion, but they don’t all occur immediately. For example, the upcoming Legion Assaults are a direct response to our initial attack on the Broken Shore. Those assaults, in turn, prompt some of the later parts of the Order Hall campaign. These events occur in a chronological order, and we want to give players the chance to be there as it happens, rather than having some of it unfold off-screen or rushing it along.

But aside from the narrative, pacing content releases helps with clear direction and player focus. During PTR testing, where we had the calendar advanced to allow for testing of all content in parallel, players were pulled in many different directions from the outset. While the heart of the patch lies on the Broken Shore, Legion Assaults were drawing players back to the original Broken Isles zones, and many Order Campaign questlines sent players to other expansions’ continents. With the content release structure we settled on, Broken Shore can stand alone as the initial focus of attention. We didn’t open the Tomb of Sargeras raid with the patch because we don’t want to rush players who are still progressing through Nighthold, but that same sort of logic applies to nearly all other features.

We apologize that that hasn’t been clear enough from the start, but hope that this will help relieve some concerns.

As much as I want to get into the new content, this is a very understandable and in my opinion cool approach. That way I can enjoy the content even more because I have to look forward to it :)

 

I am hyped!

It's better this way. People love to rush through content as fast as possible then complain that there's nothing to do.

This would be a problem in WoD, since there was literally nothing else to do aside from new patch content, but since Legion has an abundance of things to do already I think it's fine to pace the content. We can do the things we haven't done yet while we look forward to new content.

looked forward to continued my class orderhall campain, legion assaults and class mounts.. seeing that i have to wait at least 4 weeks before i can do so is a major let down. it was clear that it will be somewhat time gated especially with the legion pathfinder takes to grind the new faction but its realy weird. new patch doing 3 quests and being stuck for a week or more.. should have waited another month before i reactivate my sub to enjoy the content.. not much to do now :/

It's unfortunate that they didn't communicate the timeline enough

      He's at it again... This time around it's a ridiculous amount of healing, but only outside of Kul Tiras and Zandalar, and only for Alliance players. The main ingredient for this particular crazy stunt is the Gently Squeezed Toad, which you can summon every few seconds, then attack for over a million damage due to the damage aura that makes you deal more damage to low level mobs. And that's it, you just need some amount of leech to get crazy healing very often, with 500K individual heals and around 50-60K HPS with about 30% leech in Rextroy's specific example! The only problem is, this only works for Alliance, as the toy is only sold by Old Loola in the WoD Ally garrison and is BoP, so Horde need not apply.

      Check out the full video for the details, especially focusing on the World PvP uses:
      Here are more details on the technique, including a useful macro!

      Redditor EternalDawnbt has recreated the Tomb of Sargeras in Minecraft.
      The author also released the map for download on Planet Minecraft, so you can explore it in single-player mode!

      Reddit user Granny_knows_best spotted that using Rime of the Time-Lost Mariner gives you a hat in Flight Form. Another Redditor found out it also works in flapping Moonkin Form.
      Rime of the Time-Lost Mariner is a toy that has a chance to drop from Dread Ship Vazuvius on Timeless Isle. When used, you get transformed into a skeleton, but Druids will receive a hat in Flight Form.

      Druid in Flight Form receives a hat from Rime of the Time-Lost Mariner.
      Furthermore, Redditor DonSerrot confirmed this also works with Legion's Archdruid's Lunarwing Form and flapping Moonkin Form.

      It's time to look at the Hunter class changes and all their Covenant Abilities underwent some changes in the latest Shadowlands Beta build. Blizzard also reduced the Focus cost of Cobra Shot.
      Hunter
      Resonating Arrow radius increased. When a mob leaves the area, you can ignore LoS towards them for 4 more seconds. Flayed Shot's bonus Kill Shot no longer costs Focus. The design of Wild Spirits has been simplified, and there's no longer a difference in behavior when using single target versus area damage with this ability. Blizzard has also reduced the Focus cost of Cobra Shot.
      Death Chakram (Necrolord Covenant Ability) has been fixed to no longer chain the targets under crowd control effects that break upon taking damage. Flayed Shot (Venthyr Covenant Ability) - Fire a shot at your enemy, causing them to bleed for (250% of Attack power) Shadow damage over 20 seconds. Each time Flayed Shot deals damage, you have a 15% chance to gain Flayer's Mark, causing your next Kill Shot to be free and usable on any target, regardless of their current health. Resonating Arrow (Kyrian Covenant Ability) - Fire a resonating arrow to the target location that fills deals (20% of Attack Power) Arcane damage to any enemy in the area, and fill the area with echoing anima for 10 seconds. The effect causes your attacks to ignore line of sight to enemies in the area, and you have 30% increased critical strike chance against them. Leaving the area of echoing anima will still allow the hunter to ignore line of sight towards the enemy for 4 seconds. Wild Spirits (Night Fae Covenant Ability) - Evoke the energy of Wild Spirits at the target location, applying Wild dealing (25% of Attack Power) Nature damage and apply Hunter's Mark to all enemy targets within the area for 15 seconds, increasing the damage you deal to them by 5%. While the Wild Spirits are active, each damaging ability you use against a target affected by the Wild Mark strikes the target or your pet use against a target in the area will strike up to 5 nearby targets for (45% of Attack Power) Nature damage. Beast Mastery
      Cobra Shot now costs 35 Focus (was 45).

      Here comes an overview of the latest Demon Hunter class changes from Shadowlands Beta.
      Demon Hunter
      The latest DH tuning is mainly aimed at Covenant Class Ability balance. Elysian Decree damage increased, The Hunt redesigned. It's now capped to 5 targets, teleport and Fury generation bonuses removed, cooldown reduced.
      Elysian Decree (Kyrian Covenant Ability) - Place a Kyrian Sigil at the target location that activates after 2 seconds. Detonates to deal (132% 350% of Attack Power) Arcane damage and shatter up to 3 Lesser Soul Fragments from enemies affected by the sigil. The Hunt (Night Fae Covenant Ability) - Charge to your target, striking them for (275% 455% of Attack Power) Nature damage, rooting them in place for 3 1.5 seconds and inflicting (95.7% 455.4% of Attack Power) Nature damage over 6 seconds to any enemy up to 5 enemies in your path. The pursuit invigorates your soul, healing you for 25% of the damage you deal to your Hunt targets for 60 30 seconds. Cooldown changed from 3 to 1.5 minutes. Havoc
      Furious Gaze has become Rank 3 Eye Beam. Eye Beam - Blasts all enemies in front of you, dealing guaranteed critical strikes for up to ${({?a320,415[{${( 12.38% of Attack Power )*10*2}}][{${( 12.38% of Attack Power )*10}}])} Chaos damage over 2 sec. Deals reduced damage to secondary targets. When Eye Beam finishes fully channeling, your Haste is increased by an additional 15% for 12 sec.
