Patch 7.3.5 Content Hub

Recommended Posts

VAvY1Kd.jpg

The release date of Patch 7.3.5 draws close and our content hub contains all necessary information to guide you through it.

Patch 7.3.5 is Legion's last content patch. The most prominent features are world scaling, Ulduar Timewalking and the Seething Shore battleground.

Update: (February 14)

The Remote Auction House is once again accessible! Season 2 of MDI starts with Proving Grounds on February 27 and players can enter Ulduar during Wrath Timewalking this week.

Battle for Azeroth Alpha is now live and below are links to our latest news coverage. 

Update: (February 5)

Battle for Azeroth is now available for pre-purchase. We posted Profession Changes in BfA and preliminary Class changes. You can find the latest hotfixes that have been deployed to live realms here. Additional Class tuning is planned tomorrow (February 6) after maintenance. Don't forget to make use of the +10% XP & reputation buff during Darkmoon Faire through February 10.

Update: (January 25)

In the last couple of days, Blizzard released three rounds of hotfixes: January 22, January 23, January 24. We also learned more about class design philosophy in Battle for Azeroth. A live developer Q/A with Game Director Ion Hazzikostas is scheduled for January 30.

Update: (January 18)

We have a round of new dev tweets with information about bugs in Patch 7.3.5 that continue to pop up on live realms. An extended eight hour maintenance is planned for all regions. You can find more details here.

Update: (January 17)

Hotfixes for January 17 are out!

Patch 7.3.5 is now live in all regions and the first bugs started to emerge. World scaling crippled soloing old content and Blizzard is currently working to fix the issue. We also reported about Orb of DeceptionOrb of Deception transforming Pandaren into Allied Races characters. At this time we don't know if that's intended, but expect a round of hotfixes soon! We also compiled a list of undocumented changes in 7.3.5 that can be found below.

Allied Races

Patch 7.3.5 contains files for Allied Races, giving Blizzard the opportunity to enable them at any time after the patch goes live. During PTR testing, we looked at unlock requirements, special Heritage Armor, racials, tabards, and unlock scenarios. Four Allied Races will be available before Battle for Azeroth launches. Dark Iron Dwarves and Zandalari Trolls are gated behind the new expansion's campaign. We still have no information about their class options, but in a Q/A, Blizzard mentioned they are exploring the option to allow Dark Iron Dwarves to be Death Knights and Zandalari Trolls will be able to roll Druids.

Unlock Requirements

You must purchase Battle for Azeroth and have an existing character of at least level 110 on the destination realm of your Allied Race character. Allied Races are also gated behind reputation and various achievements. All requirements are account-wide.

I cannot wait :-) I need to level an alliance alt so that I can unlock their allied races with BfA :-)

I do believe the requirements are account bound so if you have all the various rep requirements on a horde character you can make the alliance ones no problem

I always wanted to level an alliance alt though and visit the exclusive leveling areas and quest lines :-) I really hope that the reputation requirements will be account wide. I am not the biggest fan of grinding :-)

      It's been quite a while since we checked in with the tanks and healers in Castle Nathria, so here we are looking at the Mythic logs for the past few weeks! We'll also be looking at Vengeance and Guardian tanks with our guide writers, as well as Resto Shaman and Druid healers.
      With healers and tanks we don't have to worry about under-representation messing with the numbers, as the least played spec has over 8,000 logs (and the most played, Resto Sham, 62,000). We'll start with the healers, as the HPS numbers are more relevant than the tanks' DPS, with the 95th percentile chart first, as Resto Druids jump up a lot in the higher bracket:

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Restoration Druid by Torty:
      Restoration Shaman by Seksi:
      And on to the tank DPS, starting with the 95th percentile:

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Guardian Druid by Pumps:
      Vengeance Demon Hunter by Excidias:

      Shawn Routhier, a Senior Security Engineer at Blizzard Entertainment, made a fascinating presentation on WoW's economy and the security surrounding it at Splunk Conference.
      Probably the most interesting fact is that 21 billion gold moves through World of Warcraft each day.

      The presentation mostly revolves around the tech Blizzard uses for the Auction House and transactions. You can watch the full presentation here.

      The World Quest for Sorrowbane is currently up on EU servers. The two-hand weapon is relatively easy to acquire and has Item Level 180, so it's almost on par with Mythic dungeons loot.
      The sword requires some preparation, but you shouldn't have any difficulties getting it if you follow these steps:
      Buy 1 Strength of Blood from Ta'tru at 51, 79 in Revendreth. The potion costs 30 crafting reagents that you must either collect or buy on the Auction House. Do note that the items required to purchase the potion change regularly. Buy 1 Potion of Unusual Strength from Au'larrynar at 54, 48 in Maldraxxus. The potion costs 1 gold. Bind your Hearthstone to the Theater of Pain at 51, 30 in Maldraxxus. Wait for the A Few Bumps Along the Way World Quest and complete it at 41, 50 in Maldraxxus to receive 2 stacks of Battle Hardened. Collect 4 stacks of mushroom buffs (Edible Redcap) at around 77, 57 in Maldraxxus. Hearth back to the Theater of Pain. Use Strength of Blood and Potion of Unusual Strength to pull out the sword at 51, 49 in Maldraxxus. Now, you will receive Sorrowbane. You can also check out the following video by ZaFrostPet.
      If you do the mushroom part last and there are lots of players, you might not make it due to their insanely low respawn rate, which is why you should check the spot where you click the 4 mushrooms before starting the World Quest, as pointed out by Gloomlusti.

      It's Timewalking week, so don't forget to equip your Heart of Azeroth!
      While the Heart of Azeroth is obsolete in Shadowlands, it works along with Essences in Timewalking dungeons and raids. It gets even better if you find any spare Azerite gear in your bank. Equipping it provides a huge DPS boost.
      Cataclysm Timewalking is ongoing, and you can get an Item Level 200 piece of gear by completing 5 Timewalking dungeons and more gear from the Timewalking version of the Firelands raid.
