Recommended Posts

A new round of hotfixes is here with substantial nerfs to Kil'jaeden and the aforementioned class tuning to account for the Netherlight Crucible.

Argus

  • Soultender Videx is no longer required for the Commander of ArgusCommander of Argus achievement.
  • Argus Waystones no longer drop from bosses in Invasion Points. Any Argus Waystones in your possession have been converted to Veiled Argunite.
  • [With restarts in each region] The quests Invasion Point Offensive and Invasion Onslaught no longer require Argus Waystones.
  • [With restarts in each region] The Argussian Reach emissary again requires 4 World Quests completed.

Classes

  • Developers’ notes: All of the damage increases below are a combination of buffing specs that don't benefit from the Netherlight Crucible's item level increase as much as other specs, as well as tuning the specs relative to each other.

    • Frost
      • All damage increased by 4%.
  • Demon Hunter
    • Havoc
      • All damage increased by 3%.

    • [Hotfix in testing] Reduced the health of Kil’jaeden, Erupting Reflection, and Shadowsoul by 5% on all difficulties.
    • [Hotfix in testing] The maximum distance from the center of the platform that ArmageddonArmageddon can spawn has been reduced on all difficulties.
    • [Hotfix in testing] The radius of the explosion from Bursting DreadflameBursting Dreadflame has been reduced on all difficulties.

Player versus Player

Hopefully they do this for Avatar's Dark Mark soon. It's rough getting 3 marks on Heroic when you've only got 10 people

      Here comes more WoW but not in WoW, as David Chan took it upon himself to get Scarlet Monastery a bit of a touch-up and ended up with some pretty great Unreal engine goodness! It's mostly just the "main" SM shot, the Cathedral hallway and altar at the end of the instance, where we face off against Mograine and Whitemane, with a few sections outside as well. The whole thing took about 5 weeks to complete!

      We talked with David a little about the project, but first let's take a look at some of these truly impressive shots (unfortunately there's no video available, as the computer it was being rendered on had some issues with its graphics card).





       


      And there are also some outside shots as well:



      If you want to check out even more shots of SM, check out David Chan's Artstation, and you can also check out his blog, where he goes through the entire process of creating this impressive piece!

      Another weekday, another batch of hotfixes! We have the big dungeon XP change, Shaman tweaks, and the return of Anduin to the throne after the short usurpation by Turalyon! 
      October 26 (source)
      Classes
      Shaman Enhancement Primal Primer (Azerite Trait) now correctly activates when Flametongue Weapon is applied to your weapon. Dungeons and Raids
      Experience granted to players in dungeons is now standardized, and does not change with the size of the player's party. Developers' notes: This standardized experience value is equal to what the leveling player would have previously earned in a 5-person party. Dungeon experience was tuned around the expectation of full parties, and we saw that taplist loopholes in combination with pre-patch changes to dungeon scaling revealed some extreme leveling tactics by fewer than 5 players. We want dungeons to remain lucrative, and to be a valid alternative to questing and other experience sources, rather than to overshadow them. Quests
      Anduin Wrynn should now be present in the throne room to turn in quests for players who are still on the Darkshore introduction storyline.

      With a hotfix that is now live, we’ve made the following adjustment:
      Experience granted to players in dungeons is now standardized, and does not change with the size of the player’s party. This standardized experience value is equal to what the leveling player would have previously earned in a 5-person party.
      Going in the pre-patch, dungeon experience was tuned around the expectation of full parties. However, we saw that taplist loopholes in combination with pre-patch changes to dungeon scaling revealed some extreme leveling tactics by fewer than 5 players. We want dungeons to remain lucrative, and to be a valid alternative to questing and other experience sources, rather than to overshadow them.

      The infernal mounts like  Living Infernal Core, from Gul'dan in the Nighthold, are pretty cool (unless you like actually entering buildings), but they have the same flaw as a lot of really great mounts - they're grounded! Luckily for us WitnessProtection37 has just the solution and it's a damn awesome one. Questionable art and stance of the rider aside, the concept is solid and very much in keeping with the lore (aside from the "how do you take off again after landing" part), so if Blizzard ever need or want to add flying to those infernals, here's how!

      It's time to look at my personal list of the Top 5 least impressive mounts of Shadowlands!
      I also did a post on the Top 5 mounts coming in the new expansion, so check that out if you're looking for the direct opposite.
      Disclaimer: Note that mounts are a preference thing, and it is perfectly natural if you disagree with my list. The art team is doing a terrific job, and the point of this article is to highlight mounts that are simply on the bottom list for me. Many factors came into play when I ranked the mounts. The main were recolors and reskins. 
      5. Court Sinrunner
      Alliance players will probably appreciate another horse mount that you can buy at Exalted with the Court of Harvesters in Revendreth. We've seen many horses in Battle for Azeroth, which is why Court Sinrunner deserves the fifth place.

      4. Arboreal Gulper
      The wood and foliage growing atop this toad is a natural part of its body, helping it siphon anima from the air to nourish itself.
      The Ardenweald toad mount is a reskin of the BfA toad mounts (Green Marsh Hopper, Blue Marsh Hopper, and Yellow Marsh Hopper) that you can buy for 333,333 gold in Nazmir. Although it slightly differs from the mounts in Battle for Azeroth, I don't know if players who spent so much gold on the mounts from Gottum will be happy if they see an easily available alternative, which also applies to the next contender.

      3. Vicious War Spider (Alliance) & Vicious War Spider (Horde)
      Many players that dished out 2 million gold for Bloodfang Cocoon won't be particularly happy that the new Vicious mounts are spiders and share the same model.
      When being a courageous member of the Alliance/Horde doesn't strike the right amount of fear into your opponent, add a giant spider.
      Alliance Version

      Horde Version


      2. Flying Unicorns
      Six recolors of the Pureheart Courser (100 Exalted factions mount) and Lucid Nightmare (Secret mount) have been added in the Shadowlands, so we decided to include the whole category here. At least they can fly in the Shadowlands pre-patch, right?
      Shimmermist Runner
      Mischievous spriggans and the valerunners have a natural enmity. No valerunner would deign to allow a spriggan rider because they can sense their inherent malevolence. This angers the trickster spriggans who take twisted enjoyment in playing cruel pranks on these majestic creatures.

      Swift Gloomhoof
      The ballads of Ardenweald claim that the birth of gloomrunner heralds the passing of a particularly benevolent wild god. Seeing a gloomrunner is therefore a blessing and a curse.

      Unused Recolor

      Ascended Skymane
      Only those that have proven themselves against the combined might of the Ascended will be able to ride this mount.

      Dauntless Duskrunner
      The Path of Ascension is a challenging trial, and those that display all of the facets the Kyrian hold dear will be duly rewarded.

      Sundancer
       This sun-dappled courser gallops on lightbeams with carefree abandon.

      1. Slime Serpent
      This mysterious creature lurks beneath the slime pools of Plaguefall. No one knows where it came from.
      The clear winner is the Slime Serpent mount that comes from Plaguefall, one of the new dungeons added in the Shadowlands expansion. It's a recolor of Black Serpent of N'Zoth and Mail Muncher.
