Battle for Azeroth Live Developer Q&A Roundup: Apr 26

Recommended Posts

HCqs0Qq.jpg

We bring you a roundup of the latest World of Warcraft Q/A with Game Director Ion Hazzikostas!

Visit our Battle for Azeroth Content Hub for more information about the upcoming expansion!

Roundup

Allied Races

  • No plans to add High Elves in the near future as an Allied Race.
  • No Allied Races in Battle for Azeroth will be Hero Classes (Death Knights / Demon Hunters), but they're open to the idea in the future.

Artifacts

  • Demon Hunter Artifacts have been fundamentally intertwined with their playstyle in Legion.

Azerite Armor & Traits

  • The goal of Class balance is to build a fundament for external systems (Azerite traits in Battle of Azeroth, Artifact traits in Legion) that can be left behind in future expansions.
  • A respec system for Azerite Armor is coming soon. The goal here for respeccing is that you should not be locked into a set of choices, but they don't want you to switch them too often.
    • The initial cost of changing Azerite traits will be negligible, but it will ramp up quite rapidly, so if you want to change your talents around several times a week, it will be super expensive. The cost will decay over time (or reset every week).
  • Azerite traits from more lucrative sources will have a higher power level. Some of them will affect your playstyle. Not all will be boring passives; we should also see some Core spec modifiers.

Global Cooldowns [Learn More]

Quote

Why would we ever make a change that doesn't feel good?

  • Blizzard knows that the change to GCDs would be negatively received, but it is healthy for the game in the long term. Ion compares it to the convenience of teleports back in Cataclysm, where there were portals to capitals in all major cities. They will continue tuning Class abilities to accommodate the changes:
    • In one of the upcoming builds, Heroic Leap / Disengage will be off GCD.
    • Some Warrior abilities will receive an upfront damage increase.
  • GCD changes in Battle for Azeroth are primarily aimed at offensive cooldowns. *Fury Warriors*
  • All specializations have rotational adjustments that are on the table.
  • They see WoW as a fast-paced game (a series of rapid-fire decisions), and GCD sets the pace for the game.
  • World of Warcraft should be about planning your actions in short time frames, not blowing all your cooldowns at the same time.
  • Charge/Dash are on a GCD, but Sub Rogue's Shadowstep is off GCD right now. It adds flavor to the Rogue "ninja-esque" Class fantasy.

Island Expeditions

  • Island Expeditions primarily reward Artifact power.

Lore

  • A Twitter user asked about the Horde turning evil in Battle for Azeroth (the question is based on the latest Battle for Lordaeron Intro Scenario). Ion answered that evil is a matter of perspective, and there's more to the story, but they don't want to spoil it.

Personal Loot

  • Personal Loot will be the only loot option in Battle for Azeroth. There's more control as an individual over your fate. The change hasn't been implemented to address split-raiding.
  • Trading restrictions are the same as in Legion.

PvP

  • Predictive gearing is coming in Battle for Azeroth on top of Legion's random reward structure. Throughout a week, there will be a Conquest progression. Every week, you will get a different piece of your set.
    • PvP Season Week #1: You get a Chest armor
    • PvP Season Week #2: Insert another piece of armor here
  • Big battlegrounds will have a separate "Epic Battlegrounds" queue in Battle for Azeroth. Currently, the plan is to pull out the two 40v40 battleground from the regular queue and remove blacklisting.
  • Ashran will be retired in Battle for Azeroth, but it could return as an epic battleground in the future.
  • Gear only matters a bit in the outdoor world. Players with an item level of higher than you have will be stronger by approximately 10%.

Racials

  • Racials exist for depth and flavor. The point is to get them to a point where they still feel relevant, but are not outliers.

Sets in Battle for Azeroth

  • With the removal of Class sets, there will be just one appearance per armor type per raid.
  • Uldir has its own unique art sets.
  • More sets from Warfronts and so forth are coming. The goal is to offer different takes on expressions. What is Titan cloth? What is Troll cloth?

Really unhappy that we can only have personal loot in bfa. It totally negates guild raiding, it takes away choice, and it takes away incentive to raid with your guild.

Worst change in a long time imo.

Disappointed in the GCD changes, and the comparison.    "It feels bad, but remember how those portals to everywhere were TOO convenient?    We don't want that back!"  (said no player ever)

It is nice that we can respec our traits/talents but terrible idea increasing its cost, specially for those specs that need to swap talents two or three times on a raid.

And WE like to play the game just like that, I still don't see a problem with a fast-paced gameplay, it is FUN.

I can live with that, I hate ML, but I can see why other people are upset with this (specially Mythic Guilds).

And here lies the problem with restricting loot to Personal and only Personal. They should let us trade whatever item we want to trade. It will suck to see some people get a trinket or a ring that they won't use (bad stats or bad proc, idk) and they can't trade because it is 1 ilvl higher then the item they're using. fml

Less options for transmogs, I see.

Imho master loot was always a tool of item redistribution, not a goal. Sure, lots of raiding communities going to miss the system, because it's been around for ten-something years, but think of it as free time that the guild leadership won't have to spend with managing the good old DKP spreadsheet. There are two very good reasons why it has to go:

1) With the addition of artifacts, M+ and new open-world activities, raid items became only a part of your high-end gear. I'm not saying lesser part, since they are still important, but they are not the only source of your character's outfit. If you can obtain equally powerful gear through personal loot, the incentive to do to master loot content might not be the same. Some (who feel favoured by the system) would be more likely to do raiding, but some (who think they have no chance to get loot) might be not.

2) Drama queens caused an awful lot of extra work for the support team (and some raid leaders). There were those occasions when they felt that the loot master was unjust with them, or that the loot sharing worked in a tyrannical way. Many-many guilds have disbanded over the years due to problems originating from loot sharing - hence it ruined even friendships. There might be a social side to the game, but even in the most chill communities there are debates over this thing once a few years.

I'm disappointed to see this change. Ultimately, it's going to be OK. But, it creates an environment where guilds can require people turn their earned personal loot over when they're eligible to trade it. In this particular situation, it's a LOT worse than what they seem to be trying to solve. Obviously it isn't going to affect a lot of progression loot drops, but in the situations where it does people are going to be pretty salty.

Maybe I'm wrong. I hope someone explains it away for me so I can stop being bothered. If they actually do as good a job at balancing gear as they say they will, it won't be an issue. But... You know.

I've done a fantastic job at both distributing loot fairly and assembling a team that isn't salty about loot distribution. Back to the drawing board for my attendance policy going forward.

Thats half the fucking reason people dont like personal in the first place. If the gear i got is only 5ilvl higher with shitty stats i should be able to trade it because i obviously wont use it.

Blizzard is always right. No matter the feedback you bring, you might as well just shove it up where the sun doesn't shine.

Looks like Legion was the last expansion of WoW for me.

It seems there were a lot of complaints about BfA following this Q&A....

Just wanted to add my two cents/comments.

1. GCD: As a Fury Warrior, I have seen the stresses of things being on GCD which has resulted in a lot of sadness but this shouldn't really be that new to Warriors. Fury has had its moments throughout the game as a GCD class. For other classes, a lot of people that are raging over the changes, I saw a few begging for Classic now because they think that's the better alternative. As a long time player and Veteran to the Vanilla Warcraft...You will be in for a rude awakening...Vanilla was Talent Specific/GCD galore. The Classes and game style was a different pace than what is it now, which is exactly why Ion stated, the GCD sets the pace of the game. I took this as the devs want to make the pace of the game more critical thinking / slower versus lets burst everything down and kill to move on to the next thing. I strongly believe this change is a "don't knock it before you try it" change...or you can wait until Classic and realize they are trying to duplicate that play style. Ion isn't a bad Dev, he is just trying to find ways to keep the game running...The game has been going for 13.5 years now...things need to be tweaked...tuned or shaken up to make it interesting.

 

2. High Elves: I think the amount of High Elves in the game...is supposed to speak volume to the amounts that left the Blood Elves following Burning Crusade. As Ion has stated numerous times, the Blood Elves are High Elves and there would be no point in duplicating a race for the sake to make Alliance players happy to have a similar elf. Let us not forget in Lore, a large chunk of High Elves left the Alliance when the Alliance did not provide aid in Warcraft II or in Warcraft III when the Undead attacked. When the Elves decided to aide the Alliance, they were met with extreme racism and felt enslaved by the remaining Lordaeron forces, which caused Kael'thas to abandon them and seek the aid of Illidan (other than a new source of magic). Also, the fel side of Blood Elves didn't last long after the Sunwell was cleansed, so the golden eyes thing makes sense. I think people being stuck on the eye colors for High Elves and Blood Elves, aren't making a strong argument. In this regard, I also agree with Ion, if you want to play a High Elf...make a Blood Elf. I feel for the Alliance in the fact Void Elves seemed like a rushed idea...just to even the scales on Elves...

 

3. Personal Loot: Its not a bad concept but I will miss Master Loot. PL isn't a bad idea overall though...if you get something you don't like, then you have the freedom to give it or set up a roll to someone who does. This concept works well with team building in Mythic +, in raids it just takes away the power from a loot council. I can't really say this is a hard dumb idea or a solid good idea..I think this will be a change we all grow accustomed to and generally think its fine. With Tier being gone in the game...that necessity for a loot council goes away because alot of the Loot methods focused around evenly distributing Tier. From early DKP to Big Dumb Loot Council. I think as the raid aside from Mythic, hit around 12-15 people...the need to master loot 2-3 loot pieces is just redundant but for 20 players it has its benefits.

As another Fury player, I think the changes to GCDs aren't bad as long as they keep adding damage to cooldowns when you press them, so you're not doing "nothing" when using a CD.

Totally disagree.

I believe guild raid groups should have the choice of how they distribute loot. Taking away another choice is too much babysitting.

I firmly believe and the majority of guild posts I've seen a agree, that this is a kick in the crotch to guilds and gives another reason not to be in one.

Someone mentioned it above and I agree completely with Preach's point on it.

Personal Loot? I get a piece of gear, have it in my bags, can equip it, but am told by Loot Council to give it away.

Master Loot? I never had it, they make the decision. I don't lose anything, I just don't gain anything.

I know which one I prefer.

No one can make you give up loot...

 

Master loot is preferable for most guild groups, especially since if you get loot you won't use you can't trade it if it isn't lower ilevel than what you have.

For pugs, yes personal loot, but guild groups should have the choice.

Never been in or known a guild disband over loot or friendshils end because of it. Now, maybe it happens, but it's rare enough to be negligible.

 

The benefits of ml far out weight the negatives.

We never have drama over loot and we've always used ml. Dkp/epgp has been redundant for years.

      It's time to find out what awaits us in Patch 8.2.5 which is now available for playtesting on Public Test Realms.
      Welcome to our Patch 8.2.5 content hub. We will be frequently updating it with links to our latest news coverage.
      Patch 8.2.5 Release Date Speculuation
      Based on the datamined Vulpera mug icon, it's safe to assume that the Allied Race will go live before next Brewfest, which is on or before September 20th.
      Allied Races
      While no Allied Races have been confirmed for Patch 8.2.5, we're speculating that Blizzard is adding Mechagnomes and the Vulpera of Vol'dun this time around.
      The Future of Allied Races Vulpera Coming in Patch 8.2.5 New Goblin and Worgen Models
      Blizzard is adding new models for both races introduced back in Cataclysm. Blizzard confirmed that there will be no Heritage Armor in 8.2.5.
      Goblin and Worgen Models Preview Celebrate 15 Years of Warcraft
      November 2019 marks the 15th anniversary of World of Warcraft, and players who log in during the event period will receive a celebration package in the mail with a Lil' Nefarian pet and other in-game goodies. Throughout the duration of the event, you’ll be able to participate in three unique raids with iconic encounters from past expansions along with an old-school-inspired Alterac Valley battleground. Players who defeat all nine bosses in the raid wings will receive the Obsidian Worldbreaker, a Black Dragonflight mount inspired by Deathwing. Players who participate in Alterac Valley will receive a new anniversary event currency which can be exchanged for two new mounts: the Stormpike Battle Charger (Alliance) and the Frostwolf Snarler (Horde).
      Obsidian Worldbreaker Mount Preview Frostwolf Snarler & Stormpike Battle Charger Mount Preview 15th Anniversary Alabaster Mounts Honeyback Harvester (Bee Mount)
      Alliance players will finally be able to get their hands on the long-awaited Bee mount (Honeyback Harvester)
      Where Is My Bee Mount? New Timewalking Raid: Firelands
      When Cataclysm Timewalking is active, max-level players will be able to form raid groups and enter the Sulfuron Spire once more. As with previous Timewalking raids (Black Temple, Ulduar), your gear and power are scaled to the challenge, and all the bosses and rewards you expect lie in wait.
      Party Sync
      Blizzard is experimenting with a new mode in the forthcoming patch that makes it easier for players in a party to do quests and play together: Party Sync. When players activate Party Sync, everyone in the party becomes aligned to the same quest state, including phases. By mousing over a quest in your tracker, you can see who is on the quest, what their progress is, and who’s ready to turn in the quest. There’s something else we’re going to try out on the PTR, a “replay” quest feature. This will allow players who have already completed certain quests to replay those quests with their friends for rewards that are appropriate to their current level, regardless of the original level of the quest.
      They're also relaxing level restrictions on queueing for instanced content with your friends. This allows lower-level players to queue for content in their level range, and higher-level players can choose to join them by having their level scaled down while they’re in the instance. This feature will be available for dungeon instances for PTR Week 1, with PvP instances being flagged in the following weeks. Please note that unlike Timewalking, when your level is scaled down via Party Sync you will temporarily lose access to abilities and powers (such as Azerite traits) with requirements that exceed your reduced level.
      Recruit A Friend Returns
      Coming in 8.2.5 is a revamped Recruit A Friend system. If you have active game time you’ll be able to recruit your friends—both brand-new to the game and returning champions—to share in your adventures. To do so, you’ll be able to use a new URL generation tool to create a custom link to give to your friends. By following the link, you’ll be connected to each other and will be able to see if they have purchased game time, resulting in rewards for you! For each month your recruits have active game time, you’ll earn a new reward such as unique pets, mounts, game time and more. These rewards unlock per month and scale with how many months your recruits have subscribed for. And, of course, with Party Sync you’ll be able to journey with your friends on any of your characters. We’ll have more information about Recruit A Friend rewards before 8.2.5 release.
      Recruit-a-Friend Mount Preview: Explorer's Dunetrekker The Story Continues...
      We datamined new models for Wrathion, Valeera, Zekhan, and Calia Menethil in 8.2.5 Build 31337. Wrathion is part of the story in the new patch and he's involved in a Karazhan Scenario and we also found a new Hearthstone Tavern in the game.

    • By Stan
      Sadly, there will be no Heritage Armor added in Patch 8.2.5.
      Both Goblins and the Worgen received new models in Patch 8.2.5, but Blizzard today confirmed that they were no plans for any Heritage Armor questlines, even though the latest MMORPG.com interview claims the direct opposite.
      Blizzard (Source)
      So according to the interview with Morgan Day and Shani Edwards on MMORPG dot com, it was mentioned that the heritage armor sets for worgen and goblins will be landing at the same time as the model upgrades.
      I lack the posting count to have permission to include links in my posts but the article on there is titled “New World of Warcraft 8.2 Info: Tyrande, Sylvanas, Customization, OH MY!” for those who want to go have a look themselves. Here’s a quote, though:
      "Goblin and Worgen fans will be pleased to hear that the long-awaited model update for each will be arriving in a future content patch.
      “Shortly after Rise of Azshara, you’ll see that,” Morgan explained. “These are the two races that haven’t been updated. They’ll have new heritage armor with that as well.”
      Is this still going to be the case? I ask because there was no mention of this in the development notes for the 8.2.5 PTR. Can we get some blue confirmation as to whether or not those plans have changed?
      Hello.
      I can confirm that 8.2.5 does not include any new Heritage Armor questlines
    • By Stan
      Blizzard added a new Hearthstone Tavern to the game in Patch 8.2.5 and here's a first look at the new zone.
      Check out our Patch 8.2.5 for the latest news!
      We currently do not know what the purpose of the tavern is going to be. In the initial 8.2.5 build, we found a zone called "Tradewind & Crow: Dreamgrove Detectives" in the LFG Dungeons table and some sort of murder investigation scenario steps.
      On top of that, World Safe Locs have been updated with the following entries:
      Hearthstone Tavern - Buddy Cop Scenario - Start Loc (JLW) Hearthstone Tavern - Buddy Cop Scenario - Graveyard Hearthstone Tavern - Safe Loc Note that only the third entry contains the correct MapID of the tavern (2195). The first two locations are that of Dreamgrove.
      The tavern is extremely detailed and the art team must have put a lot of effort into designing the area. There are decks on almost all tables, detailed paintings hanging on the wall, and individual cards floating in one of the rooms.

      Our preview of Patch 8.2.5 continues with battle pets! There are three butterfly mounts tied to the Bee mount faction in Stormsong Valley, a new Recruit-a-Friend and the Lil' Nefarian anniversary pet!
      Check out our Patch 8.2.5 for more info about Battle for Azeroth's upcoming patch!

      Lil' Nefarian
      The battle pet will become obtainable in November as part of the 15th Anniversary Event.
      This pocket-sized Lord of Blackrock is too small to call out any classes, but he can still dish up a good insult.

      Papi
      Papi drops from Fresh Jelly Deposit in Stormsong Valley.
      Legend has it that these purple butterflies came from a place called Devil's Island.

      Rikki
      This pet is rewarded from Recruit-a-Friend, but the model is unavailable at this time.
      Rikki has a talent for sneaking in and out of all manner of small spaces if bribed properly with figs.

      This week's 8.2.5 PTR build contains entries that hint at an upcoming Level 120 Character Boost. The updated Recruit-a-Friend program is going to reward a Cosmetic set, and more!
      Highlights
      World Safe Locs have been updated with three new entries in the latest 8.2.5 build. One hints at Emberstone Village Graveyard in Gilneas and the zone is probably tied to the Gilneas Heritage Armor acquisition questline. The two remaining zones are called "Horde - Character Boost (120) - BfA - Dazar'alor" and "Alliance - Character Boost (120) - BfA - Boralus". We may see a new Level 120 Boost introduced sooner or later and the new "Trial Grounds" will take place in Dazar'alor and Boralus. The recently-updated Recruit-a-Friend program is going to reward a set.
