The only reason it is still called Chaos BoltChaos Bolt is because Blizzard has been reworking and rebalancing it for the last 5 xpacs, at least 3x each xpac. I'm exaggerating, but you get the point. I'd normally go feral if you disagree with me, but with these recent PvP changes I think I'd rather bubble hearth before your rebalanced Imprison comes off cooldown.

I feel like you always need to be so careful with big hitters like CB - there is such a fine line between it needing to be impactful, but not strong enough to global someone with the right distance and travel time. They're still working to get it right, that's for sure.

Makes me think about the frost mage in MoP with the frostbomb shatter wombo combo. Being able to make any long cast insta and follow it up with another insta on top of having powerful damage CD's (Especially with some classes like priest power infusion back then) make for some hilarious "Oh you're a tank? How cute" scenario's.

Yep, exactly. It's that horrible moment of trying to keep things powerful and actually make sense to cast, but also make sure that they can't easily kill in one CC.

      Reddit user leothar noticed on the Beta that you transmogrify wands into other one-hand weapon types as of the latest Beta Build 35432.
      In Shadowlands, players will be able to transmogrify each shoulder separately. Another exciting change discovered on the Beta is that you can transmogrify wands into other one-handed weapons,
      So as a Mage, you will be able to transmog wands into one-handed swords and daggers.
      As a Priest, you can transmog wants into one-handed maces, and daggers (as seen in the image below).

      Beta Build 35432 Dev Notes: August 5th Great Vault Requirement Changes: Beta Build 35432 Regalia of the Fabled Adventurers Heirloom Set in Shadowlands Hunters Can Tame Cloud Serpents and Undead Beasts in Shadowlands
    • By Stan
      Among other notable items added in Beta Build 35432, we found two that suggest Hunters will be able to tame Cloud Serpents and Undead Beasts in Shadowlands.
      How to School Your Serpent requires Exalted with the Order of the Cloud Serpent, the Mists of Pandaria faction, which can be easily farmed during Mists Timewalking if you haven't reached the required reputation standing yet and the item teaches you how to tame Cloud Serpents.
      "A lighthearted and picture-filled book on training cloud serpents as pets. A favorite bedtime book of Pandaren children." Simple Tome of Bone-Binding is also new, and we think it is tied to the Necrolord Covenant in Maldraxxus, since necromancy is their area of expertise. It teaches you how to tame Undead Beasts.
      "A tome written by members of the House of Rituals, in large letters and using simple words, to teach the House of the Chosen members how to bind undead beasts to them. There are pictures." The Hunter stable size has been increased to 205 Slots in Shadowlands, so giving Hunters two new pet families to tame is a welcome addition.

      Beta Build 35432 Dev Notes: August 5th Great Vault Requirement Changes: Beta Build 35432 Regalia of the Fabled Adventurers Heirloom Set in Shadowlands
    • By Stan
      A new patch went live recently on the Beta, so we're breaking it down today to highlight what's new and we'll start with items, namely the new Heirloom set called Regalia of the Fabled Adventurers and its set bonuses.
      Although the system has not been fully implemented yet on the Beta, Blizzard added new Heirlooms with the previously-mentioned set bonuses to the game.
      The new Heirloom set is called Regalia of the Fabled Adventurers and consists of 7 armor pieces:
      Heirloom Chestpiece Heirloom Cloak Heirloom Helm Heirloom Legs Heirloom Necklace Heirloom Ring Heirloom Shoulders Set Bonuses
      2-Piece Set Bonus: Maximizing Rests - Rested experience consumed 30% slower. 3-Piece Set Bonus: Battlefield Resourcefulness - Increases your out-of-combat regeneration in the outdoors, normal dungeons and battlegrounds. 4-Piece Set Bonus: Flash of Brilliance - Gaining a level triggers Burst of Knowledge, dealing 2,167 Holy damage to nearby enemies and granting you 40% Primary Stat for 2 min. Defeating additional enemies can extend this effect. 6-Piece Set Bonus: Maximizing Rests - Rested experience consumed an additional 30% slower. Other Heirloom items added on the Beta include the following items that have no effects/stats thus far:
      Heirloom Ring Heirloom Trinket Heirloom Trinket You can find more details about all leveling changes coming in Shadowlands in our guide.

      The Great Vault aka the new weekly chest had received a lot of criticism lately, specifically for its Mythic+ and PvP requirements. In its previous iteration, while ranks 1 and 2 seemed fine, you had to successfully complete 15 M+ runs to get the 3rd rank, compared to 10 raid bosses downed and a measly 250 Conquest Points.

      (Image courtesy of Baratheus)
      In today's beta build these numbers have been heavily modified, as the M+ ranks have become easier, while the PvP ones much harder:
      Mythic+:
      Rank 1: 1 M+ (unchanged) Rank 2:  4 M+ (1 less) Rank 3: 10 M+ (5 less) PvP:
      Rank 1: 125 Conquest (25 more) Rank 2: 350 Conquest (200 more) Rank 3: 875 Conquest (625 more) Raids:
      Unchanged And so unlocking the third choice from M+ has become much easier, while all three in PvP are harder, with the third being a lot more demanding. Also remember, these are just additional choices, you will still only receive 1 piece of loot per week.
      For more information on the new weekly chest system, check out our full preview.

      Today's beta update brings the character wipe, a workaround for the DK, DH and Allied Race creation issues, some DHs might have facial feature issues and the recently announced heirloom changes are not yet implemented.
      August 5 (source)
      The character wipe is complete, the Beta has been updated to the latest build, and testers can now resume.
      Known Issues
      On first logging in, testers will not be able to make a Death Knight, Demon Hunter, or Allied Races character. Until this is fixed, you can make a level 50 template, log in to that character, and then log out. You should have full access to create any classes or race. After doing a character copy, you should begin with the quest “A Chilling Summons” to avoid potential difficulties. Some Demon Hunter player-characters may have missing facial features. This may be fixable by going to a barber shop and changing your tattoos. Forthcoming adjustments to heirloom bonuses are not yet implemented.
