Recommended Posts

A whole new batch of Broken Shore fixes and additions, the most prominent being that we're getting grapple points and the Sentinax CD has been lowered by 2 minutes! There's a bunch more Sentinax changes, as well as nerfs to Agronox in the Cathedral of Eternal Night.

Broken Shore

  • Our Valarjar allies have deployed grapple points in key locations on Broken Shore.
  • Broken Shore Rare Elite icons will now appear on the Broken Shore map even when the player is not currently in the Broken Shore.
  • Creatures other than Rare Elites and Sentinax Lieutenants no longer drop Nethershards for players who are in a raid group.
  • Rare Elites now fewer Sentinax Beacons.
  • Portal enemies should now drop their beacon type much more often.
  • Sentinax Lieutenants should drop multiple beacons for every player, allowing a quick restart after the break.
  • Sentinax Lieutenants now drop many more Nethershards when slain.
  • Sentinax cool-down time lowered to 3 minutes (was 5 minutes).
    • Developers’ notes: These changes are aimed at aligning the pacing of the Sentinax area without significantly changing the rewards. Upgraded portals should feel more special, portal beacons more scarce, and the final boss for each round of Sentinax activity should be a more welcome sight. Since tapping rules and behaviors of large raids of players don’t present a good experience for nearby parties of five or fewer, and especially solo players who might come along, the change to drops for raid groups is intended to allow everyone more opportunities to tap enemies.

Classes

Dungeons and Raids

  • (Hotfix in testing) Creatures in Mythic Keystone dungeons that do not proc Bolstering on death should also no longer summon Explosive Orbs.
  • Corrected the Premade Group Finder difficulty display from "Mythic+" to "Mythic Keystone", for consistency and easier searching.
  • Cathedral of Eternal Night
    • Agronox
      • Succulent Lashers now have significantly less health in Mythic difficulty.
      • Succulent Secretion now does much less damage in Mythic difficulty.
      • Poisonous Spores now hits for slightly less, and is limited to 5 stacks in Heroic and Mythic difficulties.
      • Fulminating Lashers can now be stunned or snared.

Good, now people can stop going apeshit about bodyguards when they were never the problem to begin with.

nothing about the Challenge yet?

If you're hoping for a nerf don't hold your breath. Pretty sure it's playing as intended.

^ This...  Challenges are designed as a challenge.  Up to this point Blizzard hasn't produced "challenging solo content" (imo) for several expansions, increasingly catering to the playerbase that wants instant gratification.  Don't get me wrong, I personally wish the challenges were easier, but I'm glad they're not.  They're also tuned for higher item levels such as 900+ or higher.  

The challenges are designed to test your limits and your ability to know you're class.  How to react in certain situations and how quickly you can react in those situations.  Knowing which builds work best in what situations, as well as knowing that changing one talent may not be ideal for a "group" environment but may be just the key change to pushing past the current obstacle.

For the challenges being the way they are I actually applaud Blizzard.  They finally put something back into the game that gives the sense of accomplishment that has faded into black over so many years.

Yes, sense of accomplishment. Forcing players into group play with strangers, not so much. But it's all designed to get 5 or more people to pay for progression than to allow solo players to progress, because it's about the dollars bottom line. Making something near impossible for one person (outside of dungeons or raids) is ridiculous.

      We're taking a closer look at the item level of rewards from Delves that you will find in the Great Vault in the War Within!
      Delves are short scenarios or mini-dungeons where you must complete various objectives in two stages and defeat a boss to get to the treasure room. They come in 11 tiers and they will also grant you items in the Great Vault, which is fantastic news for anyone that doesn't like dungeons or raids!
      Delve Tiers 1, 2, 3 are unlocked by default for everyone and those tiers will be available until Season 1 launches on September 10. When Season 1 launches, you can unlock Delve Tiers 4-11. Higher tiers are obviously more difficult, but offer better rewards. You must clear the previous tier to unlock a new tier. For example, clearing a Tier 5 Delve without dying 5 times will unlock Tier 6 for you. The Great Vault item level is capped at Delve Tier 8, so the only point in completing Tier 9-11 are achievements.
      Thanks to rosemansion222, we have the exact item level of rewards from the Great Vault in the War Within Season 1, let's dive in!
      Delve Tier Item Level of Great Vault Loot 1-2 584 (Veteran 1/8) 3 587 (Veteran 2/8) 4 597 (Champion 1/8) 5 603 (Champion 3/8) 6 606 (Champion 4/8) 7 609 (Hero 1/6) 8+ 616 (Hero 3/6)

      Special Assignments in the War Within are endgame quests where you need to complete three world quests to unlock a special task that rewards you with a loot cache and other items.
      On the Isle of Dorn map, there's a Special Assignment called Cinderbee Surge, which unlocks only after you complete three quests in the zone. You can find Special Assignments in all four Khaz Algar zones.

      Once you meet the requirements, you can start the special assignment in the zone.

      These tasks are often very challenging because they involve defeating Level 80 Elites in densely populated areas. My Level 80 hunter with Item Level 600 died about four times, even with two pets, so you might want to use the Group Finder to invite other players and complete these assignments faster.
      For example, I had to kill bees in areas where attracting additional enemies would lead to certain death.

      Special Assignment Rewards
      Completing a special assignment grants you 200 reputation points for the zone and a Seasoned Adventurer's Cache. This weekly cache contains upgrade materials (crests and Valorstones), gold, and Coffer Key Shards for opening treasure chests at the end of delves. The first two weekly caches will also include a piece of Adventurer gear.

      The spellbook has been redesigned in the War Within update, but not everyone likes the new UI. Here’s why.
      Starting with the War Within pre-patch on July 23, this is what the spellbook in World of Warcraft will look like. 

      With no resize option implemented for the spellbook, the main complaint is that the new design takes up the entire screen.
      There’s only one button to resize it, and even then, the single tab still dominates the screen. If only the background were translucent, so you could see what's happening with your character.

      What do you think of the new design?
