Ahead of tomorrow's release, Netherlight Crucible tier 2 traits (light & shadow powers) received adjustments.

The final chapter of the Argus story unlocks tomorrow and with it, players can unlock the Netherlight Crucible and start forging relics.

Some specs are receiving a flat damage increase after maintenance to account for the Netherlight Crucible. For more information about how Netherlight Crucible works, check out our Netherlight Crucible Guide.

We’ve made a final tuning pass on the Netherlight Crucible to ensure that its powers behave more like the trinkets that you know and love.

In general, these changes are intended to bring the value of the various powers closer together, and ensure they’re desirable choices for players. We’ve loosened the restrictions these powers had on the PTR, so effects that previously did not take your character’s modifiers into account are now improved by things like Haste and Critical Strike, and relevant buffs or debuffs that are part of your class. We also updated numerical tuning to take those changes into account.

Tuning Changes

Light Powers

Light SpeedLight Speed – Value reduced to 500.
ShocklightShocklight – Value reduced to 1500.
Secure in the LightSecure in the Light – Value increased to 135,000. Proc rate increased by haste. 
Infusion of LightInfusion of Light - Value reduced to 101,000. Proc rate increased by haste. 
Light's EmbraceLight's Embrace – Value increased to 45,500. Proc rate increased by haste. 
Refractive ShellRefractive Shell – Value increased to 300,000. Proc rate increased by haste. 

Shadow Powers

Master of ShadowsMaster of Shadows – Value reduced to 500.
Murderous IntentMurderous Intent – Value reduced to 1500.
Dark SorrowsDark Sorrows – Proc rate increased by Haste. 
Torment the WeakTorment the Weak – Value reduced to 80,000. Damage over Time effect now increased by haste and can crit.
Chaotic DarknessChaotic Darkness – Proc rate increased by Haste. 
ShadowbindShadowbind – Value increased to 200,000. Proc rate increased by haste.

The above all differ from what you may have seen on the PTR, and we appreciate the time and effort that testers put into providing the feedback we received.

Can't wait to see how much damage boost will be this. May we can push forward our mythic progress faster, we stuck 2 weeks ago at Desolate Host.

So if I've read all this right, your potential buffs are totally random and you could get stuck with totally useless increases?

If I read it right, its a pretty drastic nerf (25%-40%). From 650 mastery to 500 (from 2500 concordance stat to 1500) (and so forth for other stats) and in return the "chance on" spells are affected by your haste.

Buff the useless, nerf the usefull and the result is a bit less to look forward to.

My guess would be they're trying to make it less demanding to be maxed out in crucible.  Make the difference between being maxed and missing a few less 'in your face,' level the playing field type changes.

Most likely also trying to reduce the "need" for top players to grind it out. They will, regardless of what Blizz does, but yeah.

      Ah yes, the World of Warcraft South Park episode. It spawned many memes and was a pretty big deal for WoW at the time, bringing it even further into the pop culture mainstream. It seems the episode still echoes in people's minds, as ianxplosion took it upon himself to reenact the boys' plan to level to (the then max) 60 killing only boars. Obviously this has only recently become possible with the old world level scaling changes in 7.3.5, and while he didn't only kill Elwynn Forest boars (even heading to Outland for a short while) he did stay true to the episode's ideals and dinged 60 a few days ago. 6 days played, a month and 19 thousand boars later, here's the clip of the final victory, and a longer section of the stream from the final day:


      Live to win indeed.
      And finally, just in case you aren't familiar with the episode in question, or just haven't watched in a while, here's the inspiration for ianxplosion's quest, and one of the better South Park episodes in general, Make Love, Not Warcraft:

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a growing raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.

      We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 3/11 Mythic, Heroic AOTC Antorus progression.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
      We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for raiding the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS: Will consider all specs, but would love to add a dedicated Elemental Shaman.

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you a deeper dive into the raid team.
