Kul Tiran & Mag'har Orc Heritage Armor Teased

Recommended Posts

Blizzard updated the Allied Races image on the official Battle for Azeroth website with a new one that shows off Heritage armor of Mag'har Orcs and Kul Tirans.

Dark Iron Dwarves and Mag'har Orcs will be the first playable Allied Races of the expansion. Kul Tirans and Zandalari Trolls will be unlocked later in the expansion. Which Heritage armor do you like most?

Check out our Battle for Azeroth content hub for more information!

Dark Iron Dwarf armor look sick too. Reminds me of Warrior T10, a bit.

Kul'Tiran combat rouge? I mean pirate... I mean Outlaw... FYI, I did not check if they actually can be rogues in the first place so be nice to me ;) The armor looks cool though. Kinda like the most recent rogue T-armor/glad sets. I just don't like the look of those humans. God, should've hit the gym, or something...

 

As for the actual question I'd agree with them looking quite nice in general. Dark Irons look really "dwarfey" but I too think Nightborne won it so far. Not too impressive is the Lightforged set IMO.

Honestly, I liked the plate armor that was datamined earlier, as it feels more uniquely 'Kul Tiran' to me. (Although since it was clearly plate, it wouldn't work as an 'every class' racial armor.) The new teased set with the coat just seems like something that should be available to multiple races; there doesn't seem to be anything about it that says 'seaworthy'. Genn has essentially the same coat, just in a different color.

This is what I was afraid of with the heritage armor - that sets would be locked to certain races that don't look specific to that race. Of course, it's just my opinion, so it doesn't count for much and I'm sure other people disagree.

I'm not a big fan of the idea heritage armor overall, as it feels like something that was just tacked on to make sure players actually level new races - and not because the armor is absolutely unique to them (i.e. - Highmountain Tauren and Lightforged Draenei both have heritage armors that could easily be obtained on the 'base race' as well, among others. 'Normal' tauren have used headdresses and war totems forever, so why lock them just to Highmountain?) Personally, I would be a LOT more motivated if we could use the heritage armor on characters of the race that the allied race is based on at least, and more races than that if it makes sense. It doesn't seem that symmetry is as much of a concern for WoW anymore, so I'm puzzled and discouraged by the locking of armor sets to one specific allied race. Perhaps they plan to add heritage sets for the base races later, and that's why they're locked, but nothing has been found or leaked to back up that (probably hopeless) idea.

I'm not sure how they  don't look specific to that race?  All of them so far have been very unique.

The 'base tauren' and 'base lightforged' ones ... i mean they're already the same race, just a different culture.  They're probably going to share a lot of similarities.  Even the dark iron dwarf one could be otherwise dwarven if it were a little less 'dark' shaded. Lighten it up a bit and it would look rather plainly dwarven, if a modern look.

Rogues

    Due to continual misspellings of the “rogue” class, we have officially changed the name to the easier to type “rouge.”

See Blizzard WoW-Patchnotes dated April 1st 2011 :) I'll not edit it - Rouge Nation sounds fun :)

      Brewfest will be overhauled in Patch 8.2 and while we don't know the exact details yet, Blizzard added mug icons for multiple Allied Races in the initial Build 30080, including the Vulpera. They confirmed no new Allied Races would be coming in Rise of Azshara, so we assume they're leaving them for .5 patches in Battle for Azeroth.
      New Brewfest Icons
      We've got new Brewfest icons for Dark Iron Dwarves, Lightforged Draenei, Highmountain Tauren, Mag'har Orcs, the Nightborne, Void Elves and the Vulpera.

      At the same time, Blizzard added Mechagnomes to the table of playable races in Patch 8.2, so we can speculate that Alliance counterpart of Vulperas will be them.

      You can check out our preview of the Vulpera here!

      With the introduction of mount equipment in Rise of Azshara, Water Striders will lose their innate passive ability to walk on water. What exactly does that entail?
      If you haven't been following the official Patch 8.2 content preview, each mount is getting an equipment slot in Patch 8.2 which grants the mount perks, such as water walking, parachute, and daze prevention.
      The item which grants water walking is called Inflatable Mount Shoes. As a result, all Water Striders will lose their innate ability to walk on water, but Blizzard will be mailing Inflatable Mount Shoes to every player who unlocked the mount through the Anglers reputation. Additional Inflatable Mount Shoes should be affordable on the Anglers vendor for 40 Gold right now.
      Death Knights (Path of Frost) and Shamans (Water Walking) both have water walking, so they don't need the item at all.
      They're comparing Water Striders to Sky Golem's innate herbing passive, and some ask the Water Strider's ability to be designed in a way to ignore mount equipment, but the Engineering mount won't be losing its passive, because it's apparently not as powerful as water walking itself.
      TL;DR
      Water Striders will no longer be able to walk on water in Patch 8.2. The water walking ability is transferred to an item which can be applied to mounts of your choice, resulting in more variety. If you earned a Water Strider and farmed the Anglers rep, the item will be mailed to you at no charge. Additional items can be purchased from the Anglers vendor. What's your opinion about Water Striders in general? Do you think they should keep their ability to walk on water, or do you not mind the nerf at all? Let us know in the comments!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Yeah, but now you’d have the ability to use a mount, besides the Water Strider. I dunno about you, but being stuck using only one mount forever sounds absolutely boring as hell
      That’s one of the goals here. There are a lot of mounts out there and it’s strange to have a “wrong choice” when out running around. You’ll easily be able to keep the ability just as you have it now but there will be other options that you (the player) can make if you prefer something else. How you about the world, where you often go, and how fast you like to escape from things could all contribute to what works best for your playstyle.
      There are a few extra notes so like Death Knights can do waterwalking via Path of Frost (and Shaman with Water Walking). That should help empower these classes a bit and help make them feel a bit more unique.
      I’m not sure what the price of the waterwalking shoes will be offhand, but it should be pretty affordable on the Anglers vendor. We’ll have the PTR up soon™ and look forward to hearing your feedback on that.
      Would it be possible to have the water strider be like the sky golem. It can have innate water walking but is not effected by mount equipment?
      I will check but my personal opinion from my play experience is that the water strider ability is just much stronger than the sky golem herbing. We nerfed the water strider once and if we leave it with the ability there then it’s more in the line of getting everything and less of making a choice for what you want. We want there to be a choice based on your play and interests. If herbing on the run provides too strong of a benefit then there might need to be changes there but currently I don’t think that’s the case.
      Brave soul.
      I commend you for stepping into this thread on the Monday evening preceding the drop of 8.2 on the PTR. However, this price you speak of not knowing offhand is what will be a determining factor in many players decisions. Personally, I’ve stuck by/accepted/dealt with the changes made over the years to keep the gameplay from just becoming a static habit. But having spent my money and time acquiring the rep required to gain the reward, only to have it removed and then require it to be re-purchased…no. That’s the line. I’m sorry to sound like I’m giving an ultimatum because it’s not. It’s a decision made based on honor, or the lack thereof.
      EDIT - and to be perfectly fair, yes, I agree and have so for many years that Blizzard has the right to change content at their discretion at any time. But this is one of those times I won’t be agreeing with it.
      Just something I’d like to get your perspective on, if the character who earned the Anglers reputation along with the mount gets the water walking item for free, what would a fair price be for the alts to get it? If that character who earned the reputation and mount has the option to water walk (but might choose something else), do you feel that alts should have every single thing that the other characters have?
      Also, just out of curiosity, how often would you estimate that you have you used the water strider mount in the 6+ years it’s been available?
      Thanks folks for chatting!

      Recently, Blizzard's CDN (Content Delivery Network) has been updated with a new Classic Beta build and according to Blizzard, they've begun a phase of internal employee alpha testing and have no announcements to make right now regarding Beta.
      The only thing we know about WoW Classic right now is that Blizzard employees have begun internal testing. The game, scheduled for release later this summer, is currently still in Alpha and it does not look like they're planning to announce Beta testing any time soon, leaving the company with less than 4 months of testing prior to release, granted that Classic won't be delayed.

      Hey folks! I’ve got a small update here to help quell some of the rumors and let you know where we are at for WoW Classic. We recently began a phase of internal employee alpha testing. The new build data that many of you have been discussing over the last few days is simply part of this process. Phases like this allow us to test out the game content along with other functionality that will be used in the live game, like logging in through the Blizzard Battle.net App.
      Aside from that, we don’t have any announcements to make at this time. I know all of you are very excited about this game and we thank you for your patience as we continue to develop it. More information will be coming soon!

      The maximum item level of world quest and emissary rewards is going up next week with opening of Mythic Crucible on April 23.
      World quests will now reward gear up to item level 370, emissaries up to item level 395, and Azerite Armor from emissaries will be increased to item level 400. Rewards from the "Against Overwhelming Odds" (PvP world quest) will be up to item level 395. The change should be live after the weekly scheduled maintenance in your region.

      Raid Finder (and Mythic) difficulty for Crucible of Storms will open next week, April 23. Similar to Battle of Dazar’alor, you will need an average item level of 350 to queue for it. To help ensure players get raid ready, we are increasing the maximum item level for certain World Quests rewards. This will include the following:
      World Quest rewards will go up to ilvl 370 (from 360) Emissary equipment will go up to ilvl 395 (from 385) Emissary Azerite Armor will go up to ilvl 400 (from 385) Against Overwhelming Odds (when available) will go up to ilvl 395 (from 385) Once the update is live it will affect active rewards like the Emissaries, so you may want to plan for when you will turn those in.

      It seems Alliance players will finally be able to get their hands on Bee mounts come Rise of Azshara.
      Patch 8.2 datamining revealed four new factions that may be related to Bee mounts datamined back in Patch 8.0.1. The new entries include:
      Hivemother Drone Queen Honey Bee While we don't have any additional details to share at this time, it seems the Alliance is one step closer to receiving their Bee mounts, teased back at last year's BlizzCon. Maybe it's time to start looking for new secrets in Stormsong Valley when Patch 8.2 goes live.
