Patch 7.2.5 PTR: New Class Legendary Rings

Recommended Posts

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.

Wow they def taking a page from diablo here, I like it but balance could be hard with something like this.

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.

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.

      The new season begins tomorrow in the US and Wednesday in the EU, and Blizzard have a survival guide video as well as the scedule ffor the Conquest PvP items to go along with the previously announced season 4 conquest notes!
      Check out everything else that's arrived with the new patch right here and the patch notes here.
      Season 4 (source)
      Battle for Azeroth Season 4 begins, January 21 and includes an all-new Affix—Awakened— for Mythic Keystone Dungeons, Heroic Difficulty Darkshore Warfront, and more.
      Mythic Keystone Dungeons Season 4
      Season 4 has a new affix—Awakened. While the Awakened affix is active, players will discover obelisks throughout the dungeon, which will pull players through the veil to the shadowy world of Ny’alotha. There, players will confront a powerful servant of N’Zoth which they must defeat or the servant will join forces with the final boss in the instance. Once the lieutenant has been taken down, the party will be returned to their regular reality in the location they’re currently standing in.
      Reward Updates
      Item levels of rewards from level 120 Normal, Heroic, and Mythic dungeons have been increased by 30 and can now be corrupted by N’Zoth. Baseline rewards are now item-level 400 from Normal, 415 from Heroic, and 430 from non-Keystone Mythic dungeons. During the first week of Season 4, rewards from end-of-run chests will be capped at item-level 445 for Mythic Keystone at +6 difficulty or PvP Rank 2, and the reward cache will contain a Season 3 reward. With the start of the second week of Season 4, the weekly cache will not be affected by the cap, and will reward Season 4 items at higher item levels.
      Check out the Mythic Keystone Dungeon Leaderboards to see who’s staying on top of the clock.
      PvP Season 4
      Season 4 brings new player-versus-player content including the new Teeming Islands Brawl. This large-scale battle brings together two teams of 10 on an island overflowing with powerful creatures. This Brawl brings an additional challenge to the shores of PvP Island Expeditions by increasing the total amount of players from six to 20 on the biggest Islands (Havenswood and Jorundall). Participants can earn two new mounts—the Vicious White Bonesteed (Horde) and Vicious White Warsaber (Alliance) and the highest-rated players will unlock the new Corrupted Gladiator’s Proto-Drake mount.
      Reward Updates
      Item level rewards in Random Battlegrounds have also been increased by 30. During the first week of Season 4, end-of-match rewards will be capped at item-level 445. This will require Challenger rank to earn. Beginning in week 2, Challenger rank rewards will be item-level 460.

      Blizzard have clarified that the mail issues with the Auction House won't affect players in the long-term, aka you don't have to worry your mails will expire. They're working on fixing the newly found issues and it will probably take them a few days. You can check out all the recently added issues at the bottom.
      AH Clarification (source)
      Hello.
      We’d like to clarify that nothing has been lost as a result of this issue. This is an issue with mail delivery, and we’re working to fix it. We currently expect that the fix is going to take a few days.
      During that time, the mail you can’t see is not subject to 30 days expiry. It will only begin counting down from 30 days once we’ve fixed it so that you can see it and interact with it in your inbox.
       
      AH Issues (source)
      Here are some additional issues that we have identified and are actively investigating:
      When items are returned in the mail from the Auction House, it can incorrectly contain more stacks than the displayed maximum of 16. This makes it look like some items are not being delivered. You will know if you are experiencing this if a mail appears empty but can’t be deleted. To retrieve the missing items in this scenario, take out all 16 of the displayed stacks, then close and reopen the mailbox to see the rest (you may need to repeat this several times). If a character buys commodities in high quantities, they may not be able to access their mail. The favorites list is not saving properly. We have resolved some of the issues causing the “Internal Auction Error” to pop up, but it is still occurring and we are continuing to look into it.

      As some players have already noticed, we got confirmation today that War Mode bonuses for Visions of N'Zoth daily quests have been disabled since Thursday. This was done due to a separate issue that will hopefully be resolved in the coming days, when the bonus will be restored.
      Check out everything that's coming with the new patch right here and the patch notes here.
      War Mode Bonus (source)
      We’d like to confirm that, yes, the expected War Mode bonus for Visions of N’Zoth Daily Quests has been disabled since Thursday.
      This was necessary for our team to work to quickly fix a different issue. Our top priority right now is addressing these concerns, and we expect to restore all intended functionality in the coming days.
      War Mode and the bonuses granted by War Mode in all other content are unaffected.
      Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.

      We've seen plenty of fan art imagining new class sets, especially since each class is no longer getting their own unique ones, but today we're going back to basics as redditor Anna_Richter took the first ever WoW raid sets and made them her own.

      With Molten Core still in full swing in Classic, these actual items are still very much relevant (not to mention as transmogs in retail), but Blackwing Lair is coming in under a month so Anna might want to go for Tier 2 next! With so many sets to choose for and it taking a fair amount of time to make these she's actually already mentioned what her next projects related to this will be:
      In any case we're definitely looking forward to seeing more from Anna, whichever her choice of set may be - whether it's tier 6, or the wrong choice.

      A big batch has arrived today with fixes to the Auction House, Azerite Powers and Corruption effects, increases to rare spawns, a nerf to the Defragmentation Punchcard in PvP, Vulpera and Mechagnome issue fixes and the usual large amount of quest tweaks and fixes.
      January 17 (source)
      Achievements
      Fixed an issue where a dead player's Damage Over Time effect could cause the raid to fail The Best of Us . Auction House
      Bids now display properly in the sell tab for caged pets. Fixed a bug causing the quantity field to be empty when selling a non-commodity. The “Uncollected” filter now filters owned battle pets as expected. The “Upgrades Only” filter now correctly applies to wands and shields. The "Usable" filter now filters profession-restricted items and owned toys as intended. Purchasing an entire listing now displays the item count in the seller's auction list. Players can now buyout an auction for which they are already the high bidder. Fixed a bug that caused some mail from the Auction House to exclude expected attached gold. Creatures and NPCs
      The Gaze of N'Zoth can now only be faction tapped while in War Mode. Onyx Warserpent’s Lightning Pool no longer hits players harder than intended. Taijing the Cyclone now resets properly. The spawn frequency of several Rare enemies in Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms Assault areas has been increased. Items
      Azerite Essences Fixed an issue that caused Breath of the Dying’s minor damage effect at Rank 1 or 2 to benefit from the Rank 3 increased proc chance against low health targets. Corruption Effects Fixed an issue preventing Twilight Devastation from triggering on ranged attacks. Infinite Stars damage reduced by 25% at all Corruption levels. Player versus Player
      The red punchcard Subroutine: Defragmentation now heals for 50% in PvP situations. Fixed an issue causing Breath of the Dying to have an incorrectly-lowered cooldown when used against player pets in PvP. Races
      The Vulpera Holy Relic Trick now heals for the correct amount. Fixed a bug preventing Mechagnomes and Vulpera from using ghost flying mounts when dead in appropriate areas. Fixed an expected sound effect on the voices of Pandaren Death Knights. Quests
      Vulpera can once again proceed during the Tirisfal Glades quest, "A Scarlet Letter ". Players who are outside of the Vision while their party defeats Ysedra the Darkener now receive quest credit for “Deeper Into the Darkness ”. Fixed a bug that could prevent Magni Bronzebeard from spawning as expected in “The Halls of Origination ”. It is again possible to turn in “Ancient Crypt Key ”. Titan Artifacts should now appear for the quest “Unearthed Artifacts ” regardless of the completion status of the Assault bar-fill objective. Assault daily quests such as “The Sun King's Chosen ” or “The Strongest Among Them ” now require 3 Rare kills (was 4). Rare kills now provide more credit for Assaults. User Interface
      Guild and community setting dropdowns no longer appear when they are grayed out. Visions
      Players should now find their Sanity draining more quickly after an extended period within Vision of the Twisting Sands and Vale of Eternal Twilight. Fixed an issue that was preventing an iLvl 430 item from dropping when you had completed two objectives and the boss in a Horrific Vision. This item will be awarded to players on their next run if they satisfy these conditions.
