Patch 7.3.5 Official Patch Notes

Recommended Posts

qqu3wLz.jpg

The release date of Patch 7.3.5 is January 16 for NA & January 17 for EU. Zone scaling, Ulduar Timewalking, new story in Silithus, changes to combat resurrection mechanics in Mythic Keystone dungeons, and more content is available in Patch 7.3.5!

In addition to our coverage that can be found by visiting the Patch 7.3.5 hub, there are a few changes worth noting:

  • The patch does not contain any major class changes.
  • Combat resurrections mechanics in Mythic Keystone dungeons now function just like in raids. When you start a run, you begin with a single charge and an additional charge is accumulated every 10 minutes. All combat resurrection spells share a single pool of charges to a maximum of 5 charges.
  • Accounts protected by an Authenticator and SMS Protect gain four extra backpack slots.
  • All dungeons reward Personal Loot now.
  • The official patch notes do not take the recently announced changes to Legendary tokens in Patch 7.3.5 into account.
  • Allied Races will be available later and there's no single mention in the official patch notes about them.

World of Warcraft 7.3.5 Patch Notes

New Features

A SCALING WORLD

Every zone in Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, Outland, Northrend, Pandaria, and Draenor now use the level scaling system introduced in Legion. This new scaling system greatly increases the amount of options you have when deciding where to quest and when to move on to the next zone.

All corresponding dungeons and the rewards therein now scale as well.

ULDUAR TIMEWALKING

A long-forgotten evil has awakened once more. Travel back in time with 10-30 other adventurers to cleanse Ulduar of Yogg-Saron’s evil influence. While you journey through this memorable Wrath of the Lich King raid, your character will be scaled to player level 80.

Your fate is sealed. The end of days is finally upon you and ALL who inhabit this miserable little seedling. Uulwi ifis halahs gag erh'ongg w'ssh.

SILITHUS: THE WOUND

Players who have completed Antorus, The Burning Throne will be summoned to your capital cities, from which you’ll travel to Silithus to investigate the strange events surrounding the impact of Sargeras’ blade. Look for this new questline upon logging in.

NEW BATTLEGROUND: SEETHING SHORE

The Alliance and the Horde fight over a precious new resource, Azerite, in this new 10v10 battleground. Seething Shore is a king of the hillbattleground where the first faction to collect ten pieces of Azerite from randomly spawned nodes, wins.

The Seething Shore will become available as the story in Silithus unfolds.

Updated Features

LEGENDARY ITEMS

Arcanomancer Vridiel’s hard work has paid off, and he now offers a token that transforms into a random Legion legendary for your specialization, for 1,000 Wakening Essences. You can also continue to come to Vridiel to upgrade the Legion legendary items you already have for the same cost of 300 Wakening Essences.

MYTHIC KEYSTONE DUNGEONS

Combat resurrections mechanics in Mythic Keystone dungeons now closely mirror how they function in a raid encounter. When you start a Mythic Keystone dungeon, you will begin with one charge, and accumulate additional charges every 10 minutes. All combat resurrection spells now share a single pool of charges to a maximum of 5 charges.

HOLIDAYS

Holiday dungeons are now available to all players starting at level 20. Items that drop from these dungeons will scale to your current level. In addition, keep an eye out for new items in many upcoming holidays, such as new Lunar Festival hats and a sturdier Sturdy Love Fool.

S.E.L.F.I.E

Self-oriented photographers rejoice! Your S.E.L.F.I.E. CameraS.E.L.F.I.E. Camera is now easier to obtain, and it has new background filters. Selfie Cam Mark I is available at level 15 in Stormwind or Orgrimmar via a quest, and you can upgrade to the Mark II Selfie Cam after completing a new level 30 group quest.

We’ve also added the following backgrounds, but you’ll have to figure out how to unlock them.

  • Argus in the Sky
  • Twilight Sky
  • Sha Sky
  • Firelands Sky
  • Frostmourne Sky

Changes

    • The new Glory of the Ulduar RaiderGlory of the Ulduar Raider Achievement should now award both the Reins of the Rusted Proto-DrakeReins of the Rusted Proto-Drake and the Reins of the Ironbound Proto-DrakeReins of the Ironbound Proto-Drake mounts.

So, for clarity since backpack slot can be read two ways ...

Does this mean the base 16 slot bag becomes 20 slot?

Or does this mean we get 9 total bag slots now?

I figure the first option, but wanted to ask.

So happy. I have hated these toys forever. I know some people liked them, but I never liked the idea of my character forced into an action without my input. I hope this also applies to the moonkin statues. That I could run away from them, click off the buff, and see it re-apply itself repeatedly was beyond frustrating.

@Stan According to the website for NA it's now saying 1000 for legendaries, 300 for legendary upgrade.

Fixed, thanks!

bullcrap that we have to go do a raid to unlock the new quests!  believe it or not there are players that don't do raids! I hope these quests are not requirements for doing anything in the new patch and instead are just bonus storyline that's not required for anything!

i do believe the final wing of lfr releases this week as well, and I'm sure LFR is sufficient to start the quest line.

As far as I am concerned, they have decided to ignore solo players. All the stuff that I have hated in Legion: Raids, zone scaling, etc. all vacuum for the solo player.  I guess that it is time to drop out and save 16 bucks a month.

Spoiler

It's been data mined that BfA is required for Allied Races so it will be awhile before we get them.

      Ny'alotha opened today and we have two cinematics. The first one plays just before the penultimate boss and we see Wrathion and N'Zoth. The second one involves your character and the Kamehameha-esque destruction of N'Zoth.
      UPDATE: The raid finale cutscene has been unlisted on YouTube. 
      Wrathion & N'Zoth Cinematic
      After the fight against Xanesh, Azshara reveals her plans and tells us how she wanted to stab N'Zoth with Xal'atath, Blade of the Black Empire, but ultimately, she gives the blade to us and Wrathion uses it to stab the God of the Deep and summon Carapace of N'Zoth.
      Raid Finale Cutscene
      Battle for Azeroth ends with a short cutscene and a 28 second-long cinematic where your character destroys N'Zoth thanks to the help of Heart of Azeroth.

      January 21 (source)

Brambles will no longer deal damage after suffering damage from Protector of the Pack (PvP Talent). Den Mother 's (PvP Talent) increased maximum health effect no longer affects the Guardian Druid. Hunter Beast Mastery Resolved an issue that could prevent additional pets summoned by Animal Companion from gaining benefit from abilities such as Bestial Wrath , Beast Cleave , or Dash . Monk Resolved an issue that caused Grapple Weapon to reduce the duration of subsequent Silence effects cast on the target. Dungeons and Raids
      Ny'alotha, the Waking City Fixed an issue which prevented Ny'alotha bosses from rewarding Artifact Power. Removed the requirement that Shad'har the Insatiable had to be defeated before entering Drest'agath's encounter arena on Normal and Heroic difficulties. N’Zoth the Corruptor Fixed an issue that caused Paranoia to target more players than intended on Normal and Heroic difficulties. Il’gynoth, Corruption Reborn Resolved an issue in which Prophet Skitra being defeated would cause Il'gynoth, Corruption Reborn to not spawn on Normal and Heroic difficulties. Horrific Visions

N’Zoth has not forgotten those who are loyal to him. World Quests
      Resolved an issue that prevented some players from receiving credit for the “Grand Empress Shek’zara” after defeating Grand Empress Shek’zara. Players will now properly receive credit for defeating King Dazar for the “Kings' Rest: Kingsguard ” World Quest.

      Blizzard explained why Darkshore isn't available on Heroic difficulty today. The option to queue for it will become available the next time a certain faction attacks the zone in a given region in Season 4.
      Heroic Darkshore Warfront offers item level 460 rewards and you will be able to purchase the Sandy Nightsaber from Warfront quartermasters after you complete it at least once. You can read more about what to expect in Visions of N'Zoth Season 4 in our overview.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The option to queue for Heroic Battle of Darkshore will become available when the next time a certain faction commences an assault on Darkshore in a given region. Regions that are already partway through a Battle of Darkshore attack cycle will be able to access Heroic difficulty the next time Darkshore comes under attack in Season 4.

      With scheduled maintenance on January 21:
      The new Ny’alotha raid opens for Normal and Heroic difficulties. Season 4 begins. Item levels increase by 30 for rewards from seasonal activities (dungeons, PvP, World Quests), and can now be corrupted by N’Zoth. Mythic Keystones will downgrade by 4 levels. Dungeon difficulty is increased for Heroic and Mythic difficulties. During this week, end-of-run rewards from Mythic Keystone dungeons and Rated PvP are capped at item level 445 (for Mythic +6 or PvP Rank 2). Mythic Keystone and PvP chests that are opened this week reflect Season 3 rewards earned the prior week, and cannot be Corrupted, but may Warforge/Titanforge.

Titan Residuum is again available. All items that can be purchased with Titan Residuum, including new Season 4 items, have had their costs adjusted. A Mythic +10 weekly chest will award 1700 Titan Residuum, with each additional level awarding 90 more Titan Residuum. For example, a Mythic + 15 will award 2150 Titan Residuum. Specific item level 475 tokens cost 20,000 Titan Residuum. Random item level 475 tokens cost 4750 Titan Residuum.
