Silithus Wound in Patch 7.3.5

Recommended Posts

Environmental changes of the Silithus Wound in Patch 7.3.5. This article contains spoilers.

Patch 7.3.2

Gorribal is visible from afar to players that have defeated Argus the Unmaker. The aura and the ground are both red. This is a phased version of Silithus that should be visible to everyone in Patch 7.3.5.

Patch 7.3.5

In the latest PTR build, Silithus has been updated. Chunks of Azerite are now emerging from the ground and the wound seems to be healing. The tint went from red to orange and the aura emanating from Gorribal is now blue. The question is how will we heal the wound? I assume we will sacrifice our Artifact weapons to do so. Battle for Azeroth goes back to standard weapon drops.

Azerite is the equivalent of Artifact Power in Battle for Azeroth. It will be used to empower Azerite armor.

I do hope they make it more interesting than just saying "give your artifact weapons away and you heal the wound for good". It would be much nicer if they build off of it, to say our world is still dying in some way, and have that build into a story that involves the old gods taking advantage of a weakened Azeroth. That would be very interesting. I really hope they do something like that.

I still cant believe after a whole expansion of hard work and AP farming to get thos dam weapons powered up and awsome we are going to just plain lose them in the next one, like way to make the whole artifact system a waste of time and worthless, Makes me and possibly others not even wanna bother with maxing them out anymore knowing there just going to lose them and all that effort spent.

We still have several months left of Antorus. Progression is still worthwhile for the crucible. Otherwise don't bother about AP.

The same thing has happened every single expansion. Why people still get upset after 12 years is strange.

i'm kind of hoping that somehow that sword ends up being the final raid of BfA, like its actually a spaceship or a prison or something, considering sargeras's mission it's unlikely but would be cool.

Also from the screenshots anyone else notice that the center of the sword is no longer red and full of energy? Maybe we somehow turn it off or that energy was some kind of poison, where it doesn't matter that the wound is closed the infection is already there.

They did tell us back in the first BlizzCon after Legion's announcement, that Artifacts will not carry over to the next expansion. They are a Legion-only thing. So, we have known that we would be getting rid of our artifacts since before Legion launched.

Its the exact same thing with the leg cloak from MoP, or the leg ring for WoD. Ok we just "lose" our weapons, but that's better than just throwing them in the trash for a blue item from a 110 quest next xpac imo, at least they have a final use.

hmm sorry I guess I missed them saying that, it was my understanding that they were going to keep being improved and become a permanent thing for all future expansions.

      It seems we're getting a whole lot of Alterac Valley soon, as Classic is getting the 1.12 version in one of the latter content releases and we're getting the special 15th Anniversary edition on live servers in Patch 8.2.5 during the event! Today at midnight CEST there's another Play with the Blues event on the 8.2.5 PTR gathering all Valley enthusiasts and all you have to do is hop on to the PTR and use the Group Finder to jump in!

      You can get the high-rez versions of the two original mounts from the event, which you can check out here as well.
      Play with the Blues (source)
      Tomorrow 12:00 AM CEST, please join us on the 8.2.5 PTR for an old school Alterac Valley Play with the Blues.
      Starting promptly at 3:00 p.m. PDT, Blizzard employees will be testing our 15th Anniversary rendition of AV on the PTR, and you can join us for some strife in the Field of Strife.
      Please log into the PTR by that time and then open your Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and switch to the Player vs. Player tab. You’ll see Alterac Valley waiting for you to join.
      Afterward, please return to this thread with your feedback.
      Thank you!

      The news image above is fan art created by Dogslug. You can find more of his work here.
      Blizzard mentioned multiple times that they would add Allied Races whenever they fit the story. The Horde's hottest candidates are currently the Vulpera of Vol'dun, even though their story doesn't make a whole lot of sense right now. Recent rumors suggest that Gilgoblins could be in the final pair of Horde Allied Races too.
      The Vulpera currently have too many unique animations, and they are a community-favorite. Pretty much every Horde player wants them to become playable. They're coming, and it's just a matter of when. We think the first set of Allied Races will be introduced in Patch 8.2.5 with the second one coming in Patch 8.3.5. Based on datamining, the Vulpera should be live on or before September 20th. You can find all their customization options here.

      On the other side of the spectrum, the Alliance will get Mechagnomes led by Prince Erazmin of Mechagon, but it's still not clear what the second race will be.

      Lightforged Forsaken led by Calia Menethil are a possibility based on the Before the Storm novel and Calia also received a new model in the initial Patch 8.2.5 build.
      Next up are Gilgoblins! We encounter them in zones like Vashj'ir and Nazjatar in Patch 8.2. They are a species of aquatic goblins created by Hobart Grapplehammer. Gilgoblins are very similar to traditional Goblins. They have various tattoos and fins on their arms to help them swim.

      Gilgoblins are currently not included in the game files as playable races as opposed to Mechagnomes and the Vulpera. They only exist as creatures.

      The female model has more customization options compared to the male model. Would you like to see them become playable in the future?

      We know that Blizzard wants to add more customization options to World of Warcraft, and a recent leak suggests that all Allied Races will become customization options in Patch 9.0 except for the Nightborne and the Vulpera. Let's see what the first set of Allied Races is going to be now that Patch 8.2 should hit Public Test Realms reasonably soon!
      TL;DR
      The first set of Allied Races (Mechagnomes/Vulpera) coming in Patch 8.2.5 on or before September 20th. The final set of Allied Races will include Gilgoblins and Lightforged Forsaken (based on the Before the Storm novel) in Patch 8.3.5. We know that Mechagnomes and the Vulpera are coming, but what about the second set of Allied Races?

      Frozen Arathi Basin (Resource Race)
      Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You'll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a - mostly - frozen lake. One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you're prepared for the weather.

      Today's hotfixes come with a lot of nerfs to Queen Azshara. Vitality Conduit now correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Queen Azshara When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Fixed an issue where casting either Moonfire or Regrowth twice in a row while affected by Repeat Performance was not triggering the silence. Fixed a bug on Mythic difficulty where the damage effect from Deferred Sentence could trigger the healing reduction from Obey or Suffer right as the decrees transitioned between each other. Siege of Boralus  Corrected an issue where players’ pets were unable to attack the tentacles during the Viq’Goth encounter. Items
      Heart of Azeroth Vitality Conduit (Essence) correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields on them. Learning new ranks of Conflict and Strife (Essence) should now properly grant achievements such as Power Up.

      Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1, according to Blizzard, despite the fact that in previous Seasons, it ended around the twelve-week mark.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Is this being cut off soon? Or are you leaving it on indefinitely?
      It’s been 8 weeks now, and 8.2 kicked off with 4 weeks of AK already calculated into the game, so in theory, we’ve had 12 weeks of AK at this point. AK ended around the 12-week mark in the prior seasons.
      This is an inquiry, I’m not asking that it be cut off. I think they should leave it on, but that wouldn’t fit the prior seasons.
      No to both questions. 🙂
      As things currently stand, Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1.
