Validated Doomsayers Now Live

Recommended Posts

32153-patch-73-validated-doomsayers-even

The event leading to the release of Patch 7.3 is now live after this week's maintenance in your region. Validated Doomsayers have been added to Dalaran and you will notice the Argus skybox everywhere even if you haven't defeated Kil'jaeden yet. 

Validated Doomsayers in Dalaran are now giving out pamphlets about the end of Azeroth. Citizens aren't feeling well and have new dialogue options. The chaos has come to Dalaran! Let's see if the new Magni scenario (Whispers of a Frightened World) will be enabled in the coming weeks!

Previously, you would see the Argus skybox only after defeating Kil'jaeden, but with Doomsayers, it's enabled for everyone.

Am I the only fearing this content may be comming to soon? I would hate it for this raid to (again) open up before a good portion of the raiding guilds have had their shot at KJ. And with those I don't mean the top100/200 in the world only but a tad bit more.

The patch will probably drop by the end of August. The raid though wont be available for weeks or months after

I'm in a less than average raiding guild IMO; we definitely aren't hardcore whatsoever, I mean, heck I only started tanking since normal nighthold and I'm tanking our heroic progression once a week for about 3 hours and doing just a fine job at it. Sometimes our DPS is so bad *I'LL* out dps them. That's not a mark of how good *I* am that's just to say for a raiding guild pushing heroic, we shouldn't have people pulling 500k dps on normal. So we're definitely not in the top 100/200 or whatever. I hardly play the game aside from those nights, once a week, and I definitely don't grind mythic+. We killed KJ on normal a while ago. I'm at the point myself where there's no POINT to me logging in unless I want to push harder with people outside my guild and honestly I'd rather not. 

 

No one cares right? If it's not mythic it doesn't count? To that I counter: If they (this "good portion of the raiding guilds) weren't in the running against those who've already cleared it on mythic, then no one cares about when those guilds clear it on mythic at this point. They're not part of the 'show'. So either way, bring on the next content patch please. They're taking this long, no one's forcing them to go to the next raid tier.

There are three sides to this coin.

Content is being released too fast.  Guilds and players can't progress fast enough to reach a satisfactory point before the next raid starts.  Ideally you want a guild to have killed Heroic Kil'Jaeden before the next raid comes out, and each raid so far has come out weeks after the patch is released.

Content is being released too slow.  Guilds and players are bored with current content and sit in Dalaran twiddling their thumbs trying to find something to do while some other game entices them to come play it.

Content is being released at a reasonable pace.  Guilds and players are satisfied with the current release schedule and are able to adequately progress through the content and reach a satisfactory position prior to the next content release.

 

Everyone fits into one of these three categories.  Blizzard is also trying to release content in such a way that it appeases most of the people in these categories.  Their primary goal?   To prevent the 2 years of 1 teirs worth of content that was HFC in WoD.

Yeah, it seems like it's almost become inevitable to have this at the end of the expansion and they are really fighting to avoid it. I'm just praying it works.

      Sinrunner Reins is a new and probably secret mount that you can obtain in Shadowlands.
      We currently do not know what happened to good Old Blanchy after it died back in Westfall, but the mount has a Venthyr hue to it, so we speculate that its soul ended up in Revendreth for some reason.
      Sinrunner Reins teaches you Sinrunner Blanchy, so we know for sure it is the same horse we previously encoutered, but what sins did Blanchy commit remains to be seen.
      Other datamined spells and items tied to the mount and the NPC that you need to interact with to get it are:
      Blanket for Blanchy (DNT) requires Comfortable Saddle Blanket "A soft and comfortable blanket for regulating body temperature." Blanchy Horseshoes (DNT) > Requires 4 Sturdy Horseshoes "Protective footwear for horse-like creatures." Groomed Blanchy (DNT) > Requires Grooming Brush "A circular motion with the stiff bristled brush removes and soothes itches." Watered Blanchy (DNT) > Requires Bucket of Clean Water "Guaranteed to quench the greatest thirst." Apples for Blanchy (DNT) indicates that you will need three Dredhollow Apple to create Sinrunner Reins, which seems to be the final step in getting the mount.
      Based on the number of items you must acquire, we think the mount will be tied to some secret, where you must brush the horse, provide it with a blanket, clean water, and so on.
      Here's how the mount looks like in the game.

      Some rumors were circulating about the removal of Herald of the Titans in Shadowlands after the level squish. Luckily, we're able to confirm the achievement is there, but the requirements were squished down too.
      If you want to get the Herald of Titans achievement in Shadowlands before the squish on live servers, you must be at level 80 and have nobody in the raid wear items higher than item level 100. With the Shadowlands level squish, you will need to defeat Algalon at level 30 wearing items no higher than item level 35.
      Herald of the Titans in Visions of N'Zoth Herald of the Titans in the Shadowlands Pre-Patch Herald of the Titans - Defeat Algalon the Observer at level 80 without anyone in the raid wearing items higher than Item Level 100. Herald of the Titans - Defeat Algalon the Observer at level 30 without anyone in the raid wearing items higher than Item Level 35.

      Niya, one of the Soulbinds available to members of the Night Fae Covenant, comes with an interesting Soulbind trait that mimics the Shadowmeld Night Elf racial.
      If you decide to join the Night Fae Covenant, you will gain access to the Soulshape Signature Ability, which increases your Movement Speed by 50% and teleports you 15 yards forward on a short cooldown.
      Niya, one of the Night Fae Soulbinds, comes with the Sylvari Mantle that conceals you when Soulshape ends until you move, so it acts pretty much like the Shadowmeld, the Night Elf racial.
      Other Soulbind traits that you can get through Niya include:
      Row 1: Stay on the Move (on the same row with Sylvari Mantle) Row 4: Niya's Tools: Burrs // Niya's Tools: Poison // Niya's Tools: Herbs Row 7: Care Package // Swift Patrol Row 8: Grove Invigoration Note that you can only pick one Soulbind trait per row.
      Here's Niya's full Soulbind Path.
