wow Patch 7.2.5 PTR: New Class Legendary Rings

13 posts in this topic

28742-legendary-drop-rate-clarifications

 

The new 7.2.5 build is up and running and we're getting a look at the class-specific legendary rings that were mentioned in the Q&A. They aren't finished yet and not all of them have been implemented, but for now it seems like each class (and probably each spec) is getting a free talent from of the rings (and, less relevantly, a socket), with the Soul of the x nomenclature.

More rings will be added with subsequent PTR builds, and possibly even in this build, but their purpose seems clear already.

Maybe that can do what they originally intended with legendaries and give us a totally utility based talent and just let this be something we actually work towards. Hunter one is DEFINITELY unbalanced between the specs.

I hope they completely re-think the legendaries if they plan on putting them in the next xpac.

They already have this as a talent to chose, so no gain there then?

no what it means is you get that talent by default and can choose a second one. they are basically giving us 8 talents instead of 7. so while they are choosing which set we get the talent from, getting 2 options in one row is actually amazing and im happy to see them doing it. the dps charts though are going to be insane XD

that being said im super excited, i was getting pretty burnt out on this expac, but this is some refreshing new stuff :D

lets just see what fresh hells we have to go through to get them though, is it same deal as random drop or will we be farming 10 thousand whatevers or rep?

Sorry, but though this looks cool and having an eighth talent will obviously be a nice boost, there in lies the problem. Once again, you will need RNJesus on your side if you want to be relevant in high level raiding. I didn't get my shoulders, as a BM Hunter, until a few weeks ago. Because of that, I could not seriously compete for spots in great mythic guilds. It is not that I could not do enough to be viable, but there were so many others, with the right legiondaries, that I simply had no chance against. Now that I finally have the shoulders, it appears that they will be nerfed to the ground and the belt will be BiS, which I do not have. Adding items like this, based on RNG, is simply terrible for this game. Those who have are fine, those who don't are behind the curve. One more thing I need to worry about getting to stay competitive.

Hmm by the name of those rings it sounds like they could be a reward for Orderhall campaign?

If not and they drop rng they can easily be yet another "must have of get the *beeep* off" item. Exactly what they tried to "fix" the last few patches..... World of RNGJesuscraft again it seems :(.

I think it's a safe bet they'll be from a quest like or something similar, basically helping people out that have a shitty 2nd legendary or none at all.

I love it how Blizzard said that they didn't want to make legendaries that would switch powers between specs... and then they go and do just that.

They didn't seem to have gone for the really powerful talent rows though, at least not for Hunters (I can't tell for other classes), so these new legendaries seem unimpressive to me.

Honestly if they're going to introduce another legendary like that, I think it should be for a 3rd slot, but your third slot can only be that ring. The hunter one especially seems fantastic (maybe the BM talent needs to change though, if you've got any of the top legendaries you already spend most of the fight with too much focus anyway).

Would also make sense to gate this legendary behind quite a long questline, maybe something similar to balance of power. Won't even consider it worth my time though if it counts towards your two legendaries though.

I also think these rings should be for a third legendary slot. At this point everyone should have at least three legendaries, which was one of the reasons they said they didn't want to add the ability to wear a third legendary. Make it a questline to unlock the ability to wear them and to get them.

      Squirky is a new capturable Murloc pet that can be found on the Seabreak Isle (Azsuna). In this mini-guide we're looking at how to capture him.
      There are murlocs and crabs that hit hard and it's easy to aggro groups of mobs. Make sure to approach Squirky on your flying mount and click him as soon as you land so you begin the battle before entering combat. The pet cannot be caged.
      Abilities
      Squirky has the following abilities
      Level 1 - Punch Level 2 - Clobber Level 4 - For Adventure! Level 10 - Fish Slap Level 15 - Stampede Level 20 - Bubble Pet Model

      Tomb of Sargeras is coming within a month (hopefully) and we got the official preview with developer insights and some background lore for the raid and each individual boss. Mythic testing is on the way this weekend so the tentative mid-June release date might actually be possible, although near the end of the month seems more likely. In any case, enjoy the pretty detailed preview:
      Blizzard (source)
      Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, the combined forces of the Class Orders have fought their way through the Broken Shore to reach the Tomb of Sargeras. With weapons of great power and the Pillars of Creation at hand, the defenders of Azeroth must face these last foes before the portal is sealed, cutting off the Burning Legion’s access to Azeroth.
      Minimum Level: 110
      Location: The Broken Shore
      Bosses: 9
      Difficulty: Raid Finder, Normal, Heroic, Mythic
      Aegwynn used this sacred temple of Elune to lock away the defeated Sargeras’ avatar. She hoped it would remain dormant, buried deep within the earth, but the lure of power has continued to draw foul entities to this site. When Gul’dan reentered the tomb, he tore down Aegwynn’s wards and opened a doorway for the Legion to invade. Now the fel army tears at the vault, hoping to reclaim their master’s power.
      Encounters and Bosses
      You can learn a bit about each of the bosses below. Make sure you check out the in-game Adventure Guide (Shift-J) for a full list of tips for Healers, Damage Dealers, and Tanks. 
      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.
      Demonic Inquisition
      Anticipating the arrival of mortal forces invading the Tomb of Sargeras, Kil’jaeden has called on his best captors, Atrigan and Belac, to lock down the interlopers and prevent them from using the Pillars to advance deeper into the dungeon.
      Harjatan
      Harjatan was trained from birth to demolish his enemies. Through a conquest of savage brutality, he gathered throngs of cave dwelling murlocs who see him as a god. Now, the naga brute merely has to bark a command and hordes of devout followers set themselves to task.
      Mistress Sassz’ine
      Mistress Sassz’ine has spent a lifetime binding the denizens of the ocean to her dark will. With this power, she summons nightmares from the briny depths to wash away any who dare challenge her.
      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 millennia 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.
      The Desolate Host
      Once, this was a sacred burial site for the night elves, until the Legion corrupted these grounds with the Engine of Souls. This foul machine draws upon the energy of the dead, twisting them into abominations.These tormented spirits have become monstrosities, looking to feed on any who descend into the tomb’s depths.
      Maiden of Vigilance
      Charged by Aegwynn to defend the Tomb of Sargeras, the Maiden of Vigilance has stood watch for hundreds of years. Yet, the guardian did not foresee what effect the avatar’s seeping fel energy would have on this titan construct. Slowly warped by this maleficence, the maiden now seeks to destroy any in her path.
      Fallen Avatar
      When Aegwynn defeated the Avatar of Sargeras, she was unable to destroy his avatar. In an effort to seal it away, the armor was entombed beneath the Temple of Elune, where it remained dormant for hundreds of years. Now, with the Legion tearing down the tomb’s barriers, Kil’jaeden is in a position to reanimate the armor and unleash its power on Azeroth.
      Kil’jaeden
      Since striking the bargain that chased the Draenei into the stars, Kil’jaeden believed the Legion could not be stopped—yet, none of his deceptions have prevented you from reaching this critical moment. Infuriated that Sargeras’ promise of victory has never come to pass, the demon lord prepares to face you himself, for a final battle that will shape Azeroth’s destiny forever.
      We’ll see you in the tomb!
