We've already taken a look at some previous iterations of AI taking a shot at various WoW-related things, from lore characters in the real world to characters singing, and more recently, story generation and artistic interpretations of expansions. Today we have a lot of images from that last category, as Whittz0r has been poking around the Dream Wombo AI app and entering various WoW raid terms with varying results.
Whittz0r actually went through all of them, expansion by expansion, to see what the AI would cook up. Here are a few I thought looked interesting and you can check out all the rest here.
You can see which elements it picked up on in the Vanilla raids, as it's going more for the generic terms instead of WoW-specific ones, although the insectoid theme of AQ is a pretty good catch.
For the WotLK raids it did manage to get the snowy and Yogg-y themes of Ulduar right, which is a very WoW-thing, and with ICC you can almost imagine having the Frozen Throne there near the top! As for the Eye of Eternity, the image has nothing to do with WoW really, but I thought it was a pretty cool one nonetheless.
The next three picks cover Cata and MoP, as the Firelands do look generic, but tell me you don't see Lord Rhyolith in there! As for MoP, the Throne isn't quite the building it is in-game, but the spiritual vibes work well, and Orgrimmar is looking pretty orc-populated and authentic!
And finally we have a pretty accurate BRF and EN, with a spot-on theme for Ny'alotha!
Again, you can check a lot more of these over here, with every single raid getting its own image courtesy of Wombo AI and Whittz0r. You should try the app out yourselves and see what you can get with some more specific WoW-related terms! Also, here's two bonuses, with and an interesting take on Castle Nathria and a pretty accurate bonus Yogg-Saron, courtesy of joe_the_insane.
After a mistake with the Honor calculations in Season of Master Blizzard have now corrected the system and are in the process of changing existing player ranks to the intended levels.
PvP Rank (Source)
6:00 p.m. PST
At this time, we’re running calculations that will bring Season of Mastery players who have earned Honor to the correct Rank. This may take a little while to complete, and if you aren’t seeing your correct Rank thereafter, logging out and back in may be required.
As soon as we can, we intend to remove gear from player-characters who do not meet the Rank requirement to have obtained the gear. With that in mind, we advise players who have found themselves in possession of a high Rank piece of gear to not waste any resources on it, such as enchantments.
Thank you for your patience as we continue to fix this.
Even though we saw one of Sylvanas' new models, her other 9.2 model remains encrypted in the game files, as of the latest 9.2 PTR build.
Sylvanas is getting not one but two models in Eternity's End. One of her new models has her wearing prisoner garb and her eyes no longer glow red, which all makes sense. We'll use her knowledge to save Anduin and crack Domination Magic to beat the Jailer, but what about her other model?
The second model remains encrypted, at this time, which means something's brewing up for the Winrunner, and Blizzard doesn't want us to know until the patch hits live servers. The Sylvanas novel was likely postponed to March 29, 2022, due to spoilers.
Many new 9.2 sound files that potentially contain juicy spoilers also remain encrypted for now. This week's 9.2 PTR build contained new sound files where Sylvanas reflects on her past.
Let's see what they have in store for Sylvanas in the final major content update of Shadowlands.
Blizzard shared some details about the Protection Paladin 4-piece set bonus in 9.2. Currently on the PTR, it's not working properly. They plan on increasing its internal cooldown from 0.1 to 1 second in a future build, and more.
The Retribution 2-piece set bonus isn't properly working either.
We’re looking into reports of the Protection Paladin 4 piece bonus not properly casting Judgment when it should be. The intent of this bonus is that it does cast a real Judgment when it triggers - debuff, Holy Power, and damage. Also worth noting, in a coming build, its internal cooldown will be increased from .1 seconds up to 1 second. This will help keep the bonus’s power from scaling out of control when tanking large numbers of enemies at once, while still rewarding the intuitive behavior of “trying to block as many things as you can.”
With regards to the Retribution 2 piece, it is a bug that the set’s Seraphim overwrites an active Seraphim. The intent is that it will extend one, so the value of the 2 piece is consistent whether you are running Seraphim or not.
The latest 9.2 update revealed an interesting new PvP trinket called Gladiator's Echoing Resolve.
UPDATE: The spell is not a PvP Talent as we originally anticipated, but a new trinket effect.
The trinket increases the duration of incoming CC effects by 20%. When affected, it protects you from the next spell interruption and CC effect, lasting 30 seconds.
Gladiator's Echoing Resolve - Duration of incoming crowd control effects increased by 20%. Does not stack with similar effects. When affected, protects from the next spell interruption and crowd control effect, persisting for 30 sec. In earlier builds, we also discovered new Gladiator trinkets with interesting effects that you can check out below.
