Latest changes to faction embassies in Patch 7.3.5. All NPCs now have flavor texts, Muradin and Lor'themar have been removed & more!

Faction embassies have been added to Stormwind and Orgrimmar in 7.3.5. Various faction leaders can be found there and their goal is to recruit Allied Races for the battle ahead. This is our second preview of faction embassies, the first one can be found here. The main focus of the article is to highlight changes made in the latest builds of Patch 7.3.5.

Learn more about Patch 7.3.5 in our content hub!

Orgrimmar Embassy

Blizzard removed Lor'themar Theron from the embassy and added Rokhan. Sylvanas now appears in the center of the room. Gallywix and Nathanos have been repositioned and all of the NPCs now have new flavor texts.

Baine Bloodhoof

We share much with the Highmountain tauren. It is my belief that they would make ideal allies in the time to come.

Eitrigg

The Horde needs allies. This is true.

But to be worthy of a place here, those we recruit must have honor in their hearts. If they lack it, their presence only diminishes us.

High Overlord Saurfang

Diplomacy has never been my strong suit.

This work is best left in your hands.

Ji Firepaw

<Ji Firepawn meditates in silence.>

Lady Liadrin

<Name>, I am glad you are here. We must convince the warchief to pursue an allegiance with the nightborne.

Lady Sylvanas Windrunner

At long last, the ceaseless posturing between the Horde and the Alliance is coming to an end.

The time for war is at hand.

Rokhan

The spirit of Ol' Vol'jin still be strong in dis city, mon. Da work ya be doin' honors his memory.

Nathanos Blightcaller

You?

They put YOU in charge of procuring new subjects for the Dark Lady?

<Nathanos rolls his eyes and mutters.>

Stormwind Embassy

Muradin Bronzebeard was removed and replaced with Moira Thaurissan. No other changes were made besides that. All NPCs now have flavor texts.

Alleria Windrunner

One day Silvermoon will stand again on the side of the Alliance. I know it.

Anduin Wrynn

War is coming to Azeroth, <Name>. It is time for us to bring in new allies to join our cause.

Aysa Cloudsinger

It seems like only yesterday that those of us who follow the way of the Tushui pledged to fight for the Alliance.

Though I have great respect for King Anduin, I must confess that I found his father a more capable sparring partner.

Please do not tell him this.

<Aysa bows.>

Gelbin Mekkartorque

The young king reminds me so much of his father. More than he realizes, I think.

He's the right person to lead this effort and bring new faces into the Alliance.

Genn Greymane

The campaign on Argus was costly, but necessary. Now we must focus on defending our own lands.

We cannot sit idle while those Horde monsters build their forces.

High Exarch Turalyon

Much about Azeroth has changed in the years I was absent. But the Alliance remains an ideal worth fighting for.

I will do everything in my power to make it stronger.

Moira Thaurissan

The Alliance needs strength. Unity. The king's plan to bring in fresh blood is a good one.

But I can't help thinking of my own Dark Iron clan. Of the fractures that divide us.

Prophet Velen

I have spent too long depending on visions to guide me.

It is time we forge our own fate. Part of that is finding new allies to stand beside us.

Tyrande Whisperwind

<Tyrande says nothing. Her brow is furrowed, as if deep in thought.>

This leads me to believe this is both an entry to "recruiting" the allied races and - quite likely - short-lived or phased (i.e. they have different things to say/are in different locations after the "pre-patch" or once the quest is finished on your character.

Boy, all these major players in one room. It'd be a shame is someone...... manabombed it.

Well, tried a Mini Mana BombMini Mana Bomb, but nothing happened. Perhaps we should leave it to members of the TRUE Horde.

Is it just me or are they practically writing out Llortremar for some reason?   Seems like every place you would expect him (particularly with the Nighborne in Suramar), they send Lady Liandrin instead...who if memory serves is a servant of A'dal before all others, and is part of the (neutral-ish) Paladin order hall, and head of the Blood Elf Paladins.    IE she's very tenuously part of the Horde to begin with.    Not sure there's some deep story meaning there or they're trying to push her into the limelight because "sexy blood elf lady" or something.

      As some players have already noticed, we got confirmation today that War Mode bonuses for Visions of N'Zoth daily quests have been disabled since Thursday. This was done due to a separate issue that will hopefully be resolved in the coming days, when the bonus will be restored.
      Check out everything that's coming with the new patch right here and the patch notes here.
      War Mode Bonus (source)
      We’d like to confirm that, yes, the expected War Mode bonus for Visions of N’Zoth Daily Quests has been disabled since Thursday.
      This was necessary for our team to work to quickly fix a different issue. Our top priority right now is addressing these concerns, and we expect to restore all intended functionality in the coming days.
      War Mode and the bonuses granted by War Mode in all other content are unaffected.
      Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.

      We've seen plenty of fan art imagining new class sets, especially since each class is no longer getting their own unique ones, but today we're going back to basics as redditor Anna_Richter took the first ever WoW raid sets and made them her own.

      With Molten Core still in full swing in Classic, these actual items are still very much relevant (not to mention as transmogs in retail), but Blackwing Lair is coming in under a month so Anna might want to go for Tier 2 next! With so many sets to choose for and it taking a fair amount of time to make these she's actually already mentioned what her next projects related to this will be:
      In any case we're definitely looking forward to seeing more from Anna, whichever her choice of set may be - whether it's tier 6, or the wrong choice.

      A big batch has arrived today with fixes to the Auction House, Azerite Powers and Corruption effects, increases to rare spawns, a nerf to the Defragmentation Punchcard in PvP, Vulpera and Mechagnome issue fixes and the usual large amount of quest tweaks and fixes.
      January 17 (source)
      Achievements
      Fixed an issue where a dead player's Damage Over Time effect could cause the raid to fail The Best of Us . Auction House
      Bids now display properly in the sell tab for caged pets. Fixed a bug causing the quantity field to be empty when selling a non-commodity. The “Uncollected” filter now filters owned battle pets as expected. The “Upgrades Only” filter now correctly applies to wands and shields. The "Usable" filter now filters profession-restricted items and owned toys as intended. Purchasing an entire listing now displays the item count in the seller's auction list. Players can now buyout an auction for which they are already the high bidder. Fixed a bug that caused some mail from the Auction House to exclude expected attached gold. Creatures and NPCs
      The Gaze of N'Zoth can now only be faction tapped while in War Mode. Onyx Warserpent’s Lightning Pool no longer hits players harder than intended. Taijing the Cyclone now resets properly. The spawn frequency of several Rare enemies in Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms Assault areas has been increased. Items
      Azerite Essences Fixed an issue that caused Breath of the Dying’s minor damage effect at Rank 1 or 2 to benefit from the Rank 3 increased proc chance against low health targets. Corruption Effects Fixed an issue preventing Twilight Devastation from triggering on ranged attacks. Infinite Stars damage reduced by 25% at all Corruption levels. Player versus Player
      The red punchcard Subroutine: Defragmentation now heals for 50% in PvP situations. Fixed an issue causing Breath of the Dying to have an incorrectly-lowered cooldown when used against player pets in PvP. Races
      The Vulpera Holy Relic Trick now heals for the correct amount. Fixed a bug preventing Mechagnomes and Vulpera from using ghost flying mounts when dead in appropriate areas. Fixed an expected sound effect on the voices of Pandaren Death Knights. Quests
      Vulpera can once again proceed during the Tirisfal Glades quest, "A Scarlet Letter ". Players who are outside of the Vision while their party defeats Ysedra the Darkener now receive quest credit for “Deeper Into the Darkness ”. Fixed a bug that could prevent Magni Bronzebeard from spawning as expected in “The Halls of Origination ”. It is again possible to turn in “Ancient Crypt Key ”. Titan Artifacts should now appear for the quest “Unearthed Artifacts ” regardless of the completion status of the Assault bar-fill objective. Assault daily quests such as “The Sun King's Chosen ” or “The Strongest Among Them ” now require 3 Rare kills (was 4). Rare kills now provide more credit for Assaults. User Interface
      Guild and community setting dropdowns no longer appear when they are grayed out. Visions
      Players should now find their Sanity draining more quickly after an extended period within Vision of the Twisting Sands and Vale of Eternal Twilight. Fixed an issue that was preventing an iLvl 430 item from dropping when you had completed two objectives and the boss in a Horrific Vision. This item will be awarded to players on their next run if they satisfy these conditions.

      Blizzard have clarified what keystone you need to complete this week in order to get the +15 next week and the answer is a +19. The wording on the exact decrease in keys for Season 4 next week has been a little unclear, but it's now clarified that the decrease will in fact be 4.
      M+ Season 4 Decrease (source)
      If you want a +15 next week, you will want to do a +19 this week. Happy dungeon-ing this weekend all! ?

      Blizzard have posted some additional details on the rewards structure for Horrific Visions, from the relation of item level vs. how much you cleared and gathered inside each vision, the weekly tier rewards and the fact that the rewards in general are not RNG but dependent on the milestones you clear.
      You can read more on Horrific Visions in general in our in-depth guide here.
      Horrific Vision Rewards Clarifications (source)
      We’d like to clarify some details about rewards from Horrific Visions. Items are awarded from Horrific Visions at the following milestones:
      Objective Reward iLvl Vision Boss Only 420 Vision Boss + 2 Bonus Objectives 430 Full Clear No Masks 445 Full Clear + 1 Mask 450 Full Clear + 2 Masks 455 Full Clear + 3 Masks 460 Full Clear + 4 Masks 465 Full Clear + 5 Masks 470 Each week, you can obtain each tier of rewards once, with a 100% chance to obtain the best reward that the you were eligible for on any given Horrific Vision.
      For example, if on your first run of the week you clear 2 bonus objectives and defeat the Vision boss, you’ll get an iLvl 430 item. If you then repeat that run, you’ll get the iLvl 420 item that you were eligible for (because you’re no longer eligible for an iLvl 430 item until the weekly reset). If you then perform a full clear, you’ll get the iLvl 445 piece.
      Please note: the presence or absence of other players in Horrific Visions does not influence the chance for an item to be rewarded. All loot tracking is personal, and a character must be alive and sane at the start of an encounter in order to receive credit.
