Recommended Posts

This week's 7.3 PTR patch will have some Elemental Shaman Changes and adjustments to Tier 21 bonuses for Hunters & Monks. What will be different?

Tier 21 Set Bonus Changes

Blizzard's currently polishing the latest set bonuses and based on community feedback, a future PTR build (coming this week, probably tomorrow) will introduce the following changes to Tier 21 set bonuses:

Beast Mastery / Marksmanship Hunter

Current Beast Mastery T21 Bonuses

Current Marksmanship T21 Bonuses

Upcoming Changes

Some changes you will see in a future PTR build:

The BM Hunter 4p has changed to Kill Command reducing the cooldown of Aspect of the Wild.

The Marksmanship Hunter 4p has changed to just be a way simpler tooltip with roughly the same value, and has swapped places with the 2p. This makes the new 2p a buff to your Focus builders, and the 4p the chance for Marked Shot to shoot a target twice.

Mistweaver Monk

Current Mistweaver T21 Bonuses

Upcoming Change

  • Tranquil MistTranquil Mist (2P Bonus) will be a HoT effect, instead of an absorb

In a future build, the Mistweaver 2p bonus will be a Heal Over Time effect instead of an absorb to allow better interaction with the 4p bonus.

Why do I feel like this makes the 4p set bonus essentially useless.  I mean don't get me wrong Aspect of the Wild is a good skill and extremely beneficial during bestial wrath but it just feels like blizzard felt the previous 4p bonus was too OP and was like how do we fix it... I know let's make it useless.

Also once again as is with every expansion, BM gets some love and then gets less love.  I mean don't get me wrong, BM still does well on some fights and isn't in a terrible spot overall (could use a bit of love) but the previous 4p bonus I felt would allow it to shine quite a bit once again.

Are you kidding me? That is still a really good 4pc. Not only will the extra crit proc call of the wild more often which means more pets, and that increases way of the cobras damage boost, and all that extra focus means more cobra shot spam.

Pretty sure the extra focus should mean more kill command spam specially if you're using Aspect of the Wild properly.  Cobra shot is only a filler and should never be priority.

With the amount of focus you' ll have from both aspect and having more direbeasts out you'll be able to do more. Depending on how much it reduces the CD of aspect by, the extra crit may mean have bestial wrath up 100% of the time (if youre running ring and one with the pact which, you should be) , which means rotation becomes dire beast when it procs, then Cobra, kill command and repeat cause of killer cobra. Which you'll have the focus to do since to the extra dire beasts thanks to wild call and the extra crit, and extra focus gen from aspect.

So, we had Trueshot setbonusses in T19 to buff both AoE+ST (mixed boss fights). Aimedshot in T20 for a lot of ST in Tomb, now Marked Shot and Multishot in T21... Argus raid is going to be full cleave?

Rather see a set bonus which focusses on a spell we can influence instead of hoping marked to proc (outside of trueshot window) to actually be any usefull.....

Unless you're running the AotB build with high crit and low mastery. Works wonders for me when I play it and Cobra Shot is my most used ability along with Dire Beast.

I can see the benefits of this set bonus running Stomp + OwtP "Zoo" build, however that build loses a lot of power if you are not using NH 2 set.

Not entirely, it still has strong potential without. Some theorycrafters are even suggesting 2+2+2 in Argus.

      The Gallywix boosting community is pretty well known in WoW, featuring many players from top guilds engaging in gold boosts, but now it seems they've been dabbling in real money gold selling as well, and Blizzard isn't having it. As the actions are against the Terms of Service, Blizzard has started banning accounts related to the real money boosting activities. While the focus is on Gallywix, the investigation is still ongoing and might target other RMT boosting services as well. It is unclear whether the "ban" term used by Blizzard refers to permanent account closures, but that seem most likely.
      Gallywix Bans (source)
      After performing a thorough investigation, we’ve identified that the Gallywix boosting organization has been taking part in gold selling for real money. Real money trading – also known as RMT – is a serious violation of our End-User License Agreement and is not tolerated, therefore we’ve begun taking action and have banned accounts in North America and Europe that were associated with this group and taking part in the real money trading transactions.
      These actions have primarily targeted the Gallywix organization so far, but our investigations are ongoing and additional accounts involved with running this organization may be banned in the future.
      Going forward, accounts may receive actions if they are found to be involved in future transactions with Gallywix or are actively advertising it.
      Thank you for your understanding.

      Ivan Kuzkin is back with another mix , with a bit more focus on the PvE side of WoW esports, with Mythic+ getting a prominent chunk, followed by the Arena action similar to what's we've already seen, but featuring a brand new first-person outlaw Rogue PoV. This is all built with IKedit's trademark amazingly fluid animations and crazy armor effects any warrior would kill for (and kill with, as it happens).

      Yesterday, we previewed Great Vault, the new weekly chest of Shadowlands, but many players were confused about how the rewards from Mythic Dungeons will be calculated, so here's are some clarifications.
      To unlock more loot choices in the Great Vault, you must complete the following objectives related to Mythic Dungeons:
      Slot #1: Complete 1 Mythic Dungeon Slot #2: Complete 5 Mythic Dungeons Slot #3: Complete 15 Mythic Dungeons If you complete 15 Mythic Dungeons in a week, you will be able to choose from up to 3 items.
      Your reward is based on the lowest level of your top 1 (Slot #1), 5 (Slot #2), and 15 (Slot #3) runs. Redditor zawyer90 posted an image and explained how the system works, so helping your friend with a Mythic +5 run will not affect your weekly item choices.

      We have a bunch of retail and Classic hotfixes today, leaning heavily on the Classic side, with the Ectoplasmic Distiller fix and epic Draconic pages.
      July 31 (source)
      tems and Rewards
      Corrupted Items Reverted the recent change made on the interaction between Fist of Justice and Ineffable Truth for Holy and Protection Paladins. WoW Classic
      The Ectoplasmic Distiller quest item no longer generates threat. Developers’ note: Ordinarily we err on the side of authenticity when it comes to clever use of mechanics in Classic, even if we believe the original development team would have made a change given the same information we now have. The Ectoplasmic Distiller presents a rare exception mainly due to its severity: this new discovery of an unintended mechanic would completely trivialize most threat gameplay in raids for the remainder of Classic if left unchecked, including upcoming bosses in Ahn’Qiraj and Naxxramas. The pages for the quest “Draconic for Dummies” are now Epic quality. Developers’ note: We’re changing the item quality on "Draconic for Dummies" quest pages to Epic (purple) so that they'll be easier to distribute to the correct person in raids using Group Loot or Master Looter.
