We're again highlighting PvP changes Blizzard announced recently that will go live after this week's maintenance in all regions.
PvP Tuning (source)
We’re working on a new set of PvP tuning changes that will be applied to the game with weekly maintenance in each region (January 26 in this region). Here’s what we’re currently testing:
Player vs. Player
Players now deal 20% less damage to Death Knight, Hunter, and Warlock pets. In 2v2 Arenas, Dampening will begin at 20% when both teams have either a tank or healer. Druid
Convoke the Spirits no longer casts Full Moon and Feral Frenzy when engaged in combat with enemy players. Mage
Triune Ward (legendary) now provides 50% effective barriers (was 65%) in PvP situations.** Fire Infernal Cascade (conduit) effectiveness reduced by 33% in PvP situations. Paladin
Holy Divine Favor (Honor Talent) cooldown increased to 30 seconds (was 25 seconds), and now increases cast speed by 30% (was 60%). Protection, Retribution Word of Glory’s healing has been reduced by 20% in PVP situations.
It's time to take a brisk stroll through some zones and cities of WoW in VR! The VR Chat game actually has some WoW maps inside you can run through, and Press start to begin did exactly that in the video below!
Unfortunately you can't actually play the game properly, as there are no mobs abilities etc, just the maps available, but we do get a look at Orgrimmar, Shattrah, the Crossroads, Undercity, Dalaran and Stormwind.
You still have almost two days to finish the Timewalking version of the Firelands raid, and here is a list of all the interesting trinkets that drop there.
All the loot from the raid has Item Level 200.
Apparatus of Khaz'goroth - Has a small chance to drop from all trash mobs in Firelands. Eye of Blazing Power - Drops from Alysrazor. Jaws of Defeat - Drops from Majordomo Staghelm. Matrix Restabilizer - Drops from Cache of the Fire Lord that spawns after defeating Ragnaros. Necromantic Focus - Drops from Baleroc. Scales of Life - Has a small chance to drop off all mobs. Spidersilk Spindle - Drops from Beth'tilac. The Hungerer - Drops from Majordomo Staghelm. Variable Pulse Lightning Capacitor - Drops from the Cache of the Fire Lord that spawns after defeating Ragnaros. Vessel of Acceleration - Drops from Cache of the Fire Lord that spawns after defeating Ragnaros
The past few days saw US senator Bernie Sanders get inserted into all kinda of games, as his inauguration ceremony look hit a cord with the gaming community, and WoW got its own versions of the meme!
First off, the general concept, as demonstrated in Skyrim:
You can check out some more general gaming ones over at PC Gamer, but now we're on to the awesome WoW ones, some even retweeted by Blizzard staff! As you can imagine, there's a perfect fit for the pose in WoW:
The devs even got in on the action, as the Lead Narrative Designer took a shot:
But it's not just the big lore characters that got the treatment, as this Alliance Warfront NPC found out:
And, as you'd imagine, any sitting context works with the meme, so here's Bernie again, as he apparently also just got out of Torghast:
But WoW wasn't the only Blizzard franchise to get hit either:
So what did you think of the latest meme craze to hit the gaming world?
Covenant Adventures come with a catch-up system for Followers if they fall behind with XP.
If you switch Covenants and fall behind with the Mission Table and Follower Experience, you will have a chance to receive a Mission that rewards Grimoire of Knowledge. The item can be used to grant your Follower anywhere from 2,400 to 6,000 XP if you complete it.
Not much is currently known about the catch-up system and the thresholds that trigger it, but multiple versions of the catch-up grimoire have been added in Shadowlands:
Grimoire of Knowledge - Grants 2,400 XP. Grimoire of Knowledge - Grants 3,600 XP. Grimoire of Knowledge - Grants 5,000 XP. Grimoire of Knowledge - Grants 6,000 XP.
