Here are the Rogue class changes that went live recently on the 9.1.5 PTR.
Fan of Knives - Sprays knives at all enemies within 10 yards, dealing [ 24.6% of Attack Power ] Physical damage and applying your active poisons at their normal rate. Deals reduced damage beyond 5 8 targets. Crimson Tempest (Level 50 Talent) - Finishing move that slashes all enemies within 10 yards, dealing instant damage and causing victims to bleed for additional damage. Deals reduced damage beyond 5 8 targets. Lasts longer per combo point. Subtlety
Black Powder - Finishing move that launches explosive Black Powder at all nearby enemies dealing Physical damage. Deals reduced damage beyond 5 8 targets. All nearby targets with your Find Weakness suffer an additional 40% damage as Shadow. Shuriken Storm - Sprays shurikens at all enemies within 10 yards, dealing [ 16.2% of Attack Power + 16.2% of Off-hand Attack Power ] Physical damage. Deals reduced damage beyond 5 8 targets.
After a long time waiting the final quest needed to complete the The Zovaal Shuffle achievement (for players that have been keeping up with it), the Ember Count, is now up on NA realms (and presumably on EU soon as well, once the Kyrian Assault opens later today).
The reason the Zovaal Shuffle is important and players have been waiting since the patch launched to complete it is that it's part of the On the Offensive meta achievement (which allows you to buy Covenant-specific mounts with Death's Advance), and it in turn is part of the Breaking the Chains meta - which brings with it the Hand of Salaranga mount! However, the mount reward itself is bugged at the moment, with multiple players reporting not having received it after completing the achievement.
If you're not sure what to do for the achievement, you need to find Gubbins, grab the Mawproof Parasol and then dance near 5 forges in Zovaal's Cauldron. You can find Gubbins in one of 4 locations: 40 41; 35 43; 32 42; 36 36 (as mentioned by MMO Champion).
It seems the recent improvements in communication with the community are continuing, as Blizzard has started sending out thank you notes to players on the PTR!
Players are receiving emails with thank you notes for their testing of patch 9.1.5 on the PTR with some fun stats in it, like the number of bugs the player personally submitted, as well as the total and unique number of bugs being reported:
Have been in PTR for a while but never gotten anything like this. Is it a common thing? Still good to know how many bugs I reported - although it doesn't say how many were addressed, which I'd say is the actual useful info I'd like to get
We haven't seen something likee this outside of Alpha tester emails, so it's a very nice addition to the PTR landscape and might hopefully encourage more players to report bugs. The "bugs addressed" suggestion isn't ever going to happen, as not all bugs can be fixed in time, and no developer really wants to pull attention to that. Regardless of that, this is still a pretty good step forward in community communication and hopefully Blizzard can improve even more on that front in the future.
And in case you thought only the "big bug reporters" got a note, you'd be wrong!
Blizzard recently changed two in-game paintings on the 9.1.5 PTR, due to their sexualized nature, and the choice of what to replace one of them with has been the focus of a lot of community jokes and memes. While one painting simply got a visual texture quality upgrade and some more clothing, the second got a little more extreme treatment:
The WoW community took this change as a challenge to get creative and came up with a lot of different interpretations of the decision, as well as some very specific predictions for what this could mean for the future of the game. We start off with how a player imagined the new painting occurred:
Then there's also some slightly less impressive ones:
And then there are the predictions for what this might mean for the future:
LEAKED Updated Female Character Models for 9.1.5
I can't wait to log in tomorrow when Blizzard fixed sexism in the workplace
And finally there's the very large thread on the matter, with many comments on the situation:
Another crazy fast time for Gitoff in the never-ending Torghast layer 12 speed runs! We've seen a flawless layer 12 in under 4 minutes and a non-flawless one in under 3, but now Gitoff has beaten their own non-flawless record by over a minute, finishing in 1:50!! Huge congrats and now it is really becoming questionable whether it's even doable faster!
