Patch 7.2.5-related Dev Tweets

Recommended Posts

All the details and answered questions that weren't covered in the patch notes, straight from the devs.

Update: One more tweet to add to the pile, regarding when exactly those shiny new legendaries will drop and at what ilev:

7.2.5 is going live tomorrow in the US, Wednesday for EU, and while we've covered the official patch notes, PvP additions and have our own in-depth survival guide to get you ready for everything the patch has to offer, there have been a lot of explanations for the various features from the devs on twitter, so we thought we'd pile them all up in one handy place.

First off, the maintenance will be a big one, as per all patch releases, with at least 8 hours of downtime.

Placeholder for tweet 874068725862936576

Then we have the clarification that Emissary quests "should not" be affected by the patch, so no resets or a bunch of new ones coming tomorrow.

A great reminder about when the new higher Mythic+ rewards will kick in:

As usual, most of the questions were about Ahead of the Curve: Gul'danAhead of the Curve: Gul'dan and Cutting Edge: Gul'danCutting Edge: Gul'dan, and we got yet more confirmation that you can still get them until Tomb opens (on June 20th/21st). And in other Gul'dan news, with the nerf to NH tier sets and the 7.2.5 class changes arriving, some people worried it would make the raid more difficult when the patch hits, but there will be adjustments to Gul'dan's difficulty so no one suddenly has a harder time after tomorrow's changes.

On bonus rolls in ToS:

The new 7.2.5 legendaries will not be obtainable from relinquished tokens and the tokens themselves will not get an ilevel bump, so there's no reason to hoard them.

And then there was the long standing question of the new Legendary Rings, and the hope they might be quest rewards and not random drops, but alas it wasn't to be:

And that's about it, for any other details and info on tomorrow's patch, check our survival guide.

im so sad about the rings, they were so interesting, they all talked about your order hall and were so cool, and it would have been amazing if you got them from the final order hall quest, and with that could equip them as you wish, or a third legendary, but nope, just more random legendaries

100% completely agreed.  I think it's stupid on Blizzard's part to put in a very specific type of legendary that greatly impacts the way the class will be played and then make it only obtainable through the ungodly fail RNG legendary drop system.  But then again, wow is turning into diablo 3 so pretty soon it'll be legendaries everywhere and possibly even set legendaries /sarcasm...

But I think it should be a questline similar to the order hall campaign or even the broken shore/suramar questlines.  I mean having that legendary to them may not make or break a build but it will impact where players stand on the charts especially when it comes to high level raiding.   I.E. two havoc demon hunters with all BiS gear from M NH but one has the talent ring, and the other has anger of the half giants.  Not only will the one with the talent ring have the same build as the other DH but they will also get their choice of bloodlet or chaos cleave which will also increase their chaos strike damage.  The one with the talent ring will more than likely pull ahead depending on demon's blade procs (another thing I'm super salty about).

More and more legendaries = less value of the fact that they are legendaries.

 

Ok rant over...

like the legendary ring SCREAMS *Comes from order hall campaign* 

the names are the titles we get from our class hall

and it talks about the class hall, plus these are so unique, all rings, all talents, all classes like wtf!?

this would have been amazing, complete the final quest, this way people with bad RNG can get this, or it is a garunteed 1 legendary for alts

 

also this would be so cool to have as a third legendary you can just equip, cause really we did not get a "legendary" this expansion

just orange epics

Realistically, it's not all that unfair given how long Legion has been out for. If you'd been playing pretty consistently you'd have quite a fair amount of legendaries for your main spec by now.

A lot of people already have all the legendaries for their main spec, and with each class/spec only getting two new legendaries for this whole patch it shouldn't take too long to have the new ones. Obviously it's a pain for those rerolling or starting late but if you consistently do everything to build up your bad luck protection every week, it won't take long for them to drop.

I am a little miffed that the rings aren't a 3rd legendary or from an insane questline like balance of power though, that would've been a fantastic opportunity to continue on!

Too many legendaries. Once you get BiS it's pointless.

I can't really say that it's pointless.  Some do have some really good niche usefulness.  I used the Prydaz shield neck and the retribution 'shield of vengeance' bracers to complete the artifact challenge.  Maybe not necessary but I did use them and was glad i had them. 

Maybe never use them again?  maybe.  But I'm glad they were there.

Given the unreliable (can't bank on any specific one dropping) drop rate and the increased competition for drops given you've added more items to the loot table, it just seems like they are going hog wild over legendaries for no real reason.

      Cross-Realm Mythic Eternal Palace opens next week and Blizzard just announced nerfs for Lady Ashvane and Queen Azshara on Mythic difficulty to go live with it on October 22.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hello!
      Earlier this week, the Mythic Hall of Fame for Azshara’s Eternal Palace reached its capacity, and guilds around the world have until the next weekly reset in each region to earn their Feat of Strength. At that time, Mythic difficulty will become available to cross-realm groups.
      Along with the closure of the Hall of Fame and the Achievement, we intend to make the following tuning changes during weekly maintenance in each region:
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Lady Ashvane Lady Ashvane’s health reduced by 5% in Mythic difficulty. Waterlogged periodic damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Rippling Wave damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Queen Azshara The "Stand Together!" and "Stay!" decree combination is no longer possible in Heroic difficulty. Overzealous Hulk and Tidemistress health reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Draining Azshara’s Ancient Ward now reduces its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Empowering a Ward of Power now increases its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Healer-specialization characters are now less likely to be targeted with decree combinations that include “March!” in all difficulties. Short Circuit now drains 10% less energy from the affected Ward in all difficulties. Essence of Azeroth now has an increased duration if there are fewer than 20 players in the raid in Normal and Heroic difficulties, and lasts 30 seconds (was 25) in Mythic difficulty. As always, we’ll let you know here if we decide to make any further changes.
      Thank you very much!

      Our preview of Patch 8.3 continues with a first look at racial abilities of the upcoming Allied Races.
      Mechagnome Racials
      Mechagnomes have two active abilities available at level 24. The first one allows you to summon clones to distract enemies and the second one allows you to open locked chests and doors that require Lockpicking.
      Hyper Organic Light Originator - Summon Organic Light duplicates to distract your foes. (Instant, 3 min cooldown) Skeleton Pinkie - Allows opening of locked chests and doors that require a skill level of up to 600. (1.5 min cooldown) As a Mechagnome, your limbs work as a Blacksmithing Anvil, Cooking Fire, and Mining Forge. You have a self-heal at your disposal, which heals you for a fifth of your total health whenever you fall below 20% health. The final passive racial passive gradually increases your primary stat (Int/Str/Agi) by 50 every 5 seconds, up to a maximum of 400 when fighting the same target.
      The following racial passives are available to Mechagnomes:
      Combat Analysis - You gather and analyze combat data every 5 sec, increasing your primary stat by 50, stacking up to 8 times. The data decays while out of combat. Mastercraft - You function as a personal Blacksmithing Anvil, Cooking Fire, and Mining Forge. In addition, your limbs include every profession tool. [NYI] Re-Arm - When you fall below 20% health, heal for 20% of your maximum health. This effect cannot occur more than once every 2.5 min. Languages - Common, Gnomish. Vulpera Racials
      Active abilities embrace the scavenger/camping fantasy of the Vulpera. You can set up a camp and return back on a 1-hour cooldown. Next, you have a bag of tricks, used to heal your allies or deal damage to enemies.
      Bag of Tricks - Pull your chosen trick from the bag and use it on target enemy or ally. Enemies take 14 damage, while allies are healed for 28. (Instant, 1.5 min cooldown) Rummage Your Bag - Change the contents of your Bag of Tricks. Now where did you put that...? [NYI] (5 sec cast, 5 min cooldown) Make Camp - Make a camp at this location. Can only be used outdoors. (5 sec cast) The racial creates a camp with fire, a tent and an explosive backpack at your location. You can use Return to Camp as your secondary Hearthstone on a 60-minute cooldown to return back. The camp is visible for others for five minutes and then disappears.

      Return to Camp - Return to your camp. (10 sec cast, 60 min cooldown) When used, there's a short cutscene with a caravan transporting you back to your camp starts playing.

      Passive abilities include a Fire damage reduction by 1%, 5% damage reduction when you first take an enemy hit, and you can find additional bags of goods whenever you kill a humanoid.
      The following racial passives are available to the Vulpera:
      Fire Resistance - Reduces Fire damage taken by 1%. Nose For Trouble - When you first take damage from an enemy, reduce that damage by 5% of your maximum health. Vulpera Survival Kit - You have a chance to find an additional satchel of goods when you kill a humanoid. Languages - Orcish, Vulpera. Other Patch 8.3 Content:

      Ny'alotha Allseer is a N'Zoth-themed mount added to the game in Patch 8.3. It is rewarded from a quest and could very well be the end-of-expansion reward for everyone, who defeats N'Zoth on Heroic difficulty before the next expansion, similar to Legion's Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal.

      The mount shares animations with The Hivemind.

      Here's a preview of Leather sets that will drop in Ny'alotha, the Waking City raid in Visions of N'Zoth.
      Currently, there's some clipping going on with the belt which will be hopefully fixed in future builds.

      Last week, Blizzard added Death Knight creature textures for Allied Races and the Pandaren along with encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Darion Mograine to the game. In this week's PTR build, four Death Knight Swords have been added.
      If Allied Races and the Pandaren will indeed be able to become Death Knights in Patch 8.3, it would make perfect sense to revamp the starting zone, because the current one is outdated now that Bolvar is the Lich King.
      Blizzard added four Ebon Blade swords to the game on 8.3 PTR that will likely be rewarded to new Death Knights created in Visions of N'Zoth as part of the overhauled starting experience.
