Patch 7.3: Caster Animations

Recommended Posts

hvBop1Q.jpg

Patch 7.3 brings new caster animations for Druids, Mages and Shamans. Shadow Priests will also receive updates, but they were not ready for the initial 7.3 PTR Build push and we'll release a separate video once they go live.

Please note this is an early preview and it's likely and spells will receive additional tweaks throughout 7.3 testing.

Patch 7.3 Build 24463 focuses on updates for Restoration Druids, all Mage specializations & Elemental Shamans. Stay tuned for more updates.

i can't say any of the changes are really game changing or even that drastically different, some are fairly subtle. However, I do like the new chain lightning. That one gets a thumbs up.

They're very .. Underwhelming, if you ask me. But not worse, so I guess that's a plus.

For people like me, they are game changing - in a bad way.

While I appreciate these changes, I recently updated my 5-year old laptop so it could survive the hellish Greek summer. From its release, Legion took a toll on the poor aging laptop. I am already playing on lowest settings *argh*

Hopefully, this animation update won't have a very big impact.

It would nice if the guy would have actually shown some of the spells in action rather then turning the camera to face the toon each time the spell was cast so we could see the spell rather then his face, Also where the hell is Warlock spells? are they not getting updated animations? Anyway the ones he actually did let us see look pretty good some are meh and close to the same with brighter color but still ok I guess.

You guys sure use creative names for your PTR characters! Mr Icyveins and Icyveinss. Not sure what the other one was called though. Iicyveins?

Actually, Icyveinscom. Let me explain: Argus is extremely buggy right now and you receive critical errors and can't log in with that character until it gets fixed. The first time I recorded Argus gameplay, I noticed it had no sound and the character got stuck, which is why I copied another one over and gave him that name to record gameplay with sound and that character's gone now too! So, Icyveins and Icyveinscom have disappeared in the Twisting Nether full of critical Model.cpp errors, hopefully not for good!

Now on a more serious note, we use those name variations to ensure authenticity of our videos.

Why did you recorded with the interface on ? That's silly :p Or at least don't put it on top of the character lol

Nice to see updates like this even if for mages it's very subtle (that blizzard tho).

Oh, I know that feeling. It is so sad to play Heroes of the Storm at the lowest settings. I can't even turn the physics on because it hurts my poor 7 year old Macbook. So no rag dolls for me. =(

      Elegon now classifies as a Cloud Serpent in Shadowlands, meaning Hunters will be able to tame the boss located in Mogu'shan Vaults.
      How to School Your Serpent is a new item that teaches Hunters how to tame Cloud Serpents in Shadowlands. The good news is it's fairly easy to acquire. You can purchase the item directly Order of the Serpents Quartermaster at Exalted.

      Head to Dalaran and talk to the Archaeology Trainer to receive The Right Path quest where you are sent to Thunder Totem in Highmountain to collect Bone Fragment of Eche'ro for the Spirit of Eche'ro mount. Note that the quest is available only once every six months, so don't forget to complete it before it's gone!
      Download MapCoords or some other addons that display coordinates on the world map. Teleport to Azsuna from the Stormwind/Orgrimmar Portal Room or use your Dalaran Hearthstone to reach Dalaran. Go to 41,26 find Dariness the Learned and learn Archaeology if you already haven't. Accept The Right Path quest from the Archaeology Trainer and fly to Thunder Totem in Highmountain. Talk to Lessah Moonwater to accept Laying to Rest. For the quest, you must collect 600 Bone Fragment of Eche'ro from four digsites in Highmountain.

      We've heard a lot of news on the Shadowlands Druid visual choice improvements, from the fact that they can now change their bear and cat form looks regardless of their other cosmetic choices, the fact that you can do that in the barbershop etc, but now we have even more good news/confirmations! With the PTR up it seems Blizzard have indeed decided to allow the Druid of the Flame/fire cat/cinder kitten/Majordomo Staghelm cat form to be used, as long as you've unlocked it via the Fandral's Flamescythe staff (the unlock is account-wide), which they've been considering for a while now! It's still a little unclear if having gotten the Fandral's Seed Pouch toy would also unlock the option in the barbershop for you.

      Source.
      The other piece of good news is that all the Legion artifact appearances (and indeed even the fire cat) can be selected regardless of your currently used spec! This adds a whole lot of freedom for druids to look as they want, and will almost certainly increase the number of people going for some of the artifact looks and, of course, the fire cat.
