Uther's Tomb Visual Update in Battle for Azeroth

Recommended Posts

(...) or some other event in the future.

I think it has something to do with the role of "the Light" in the future updates. Recently there were some datamined informations (...)

Spoiler

(...) that hint to draenor factions being in confilict with each other because the side of the light took a more fanatic standpoint (i.e. "convert to the light, or die"). There were some text revolving around Yrel and/or some light imbued orcs terrorizing the others, if i remember correctly.

We already got a hint of the light's "not so nice" viewpoint when the naaru tried to force illidan to accept his "fate".

So it might be a reason for revisiting the story of all characters of the light, and bringing their ingame components and astethics to the current level.

We might also see the spirit of Uther playing a role somehow. Maybe a character that is devoted to the light sees these things happening and starts to doubt their faith, then seeks the wisdom of someone that "knew" the light? A Paladin would definitely respect Uther enough to seek out wisdom from him.

He's a possibility, but I'd say Arator is more so - his father is completely devoted to the light, his mother wields the powers of the Void, a supposedly evil force being used in the name of good. 

If the rumours surrounding certain characters are true and their intentions, his questions about the light are probably going to be flowing freely.

This is really hard to say, "shadow" and "void" used to be different things. Demons used to be exclusively "fel", and a "void lord" wasn't a demon in early lore. We've seen the Burning Legion use both Fel and Shadow for their demons and magic in Legion (Hellfire Citadel springs to mind, with the raidboss Xhul'horac being a literal "shadowfel amalgamation")

 

In the early days - from what I understand - Shadow was just one side of the coin that also had Light. One couldn't exist without the other. Void however, used to thrive the more of it there is. Shadow and Light used to balance each other out.

 

Now, Void and Shadow are being used interchangeably on top of Fel being used interchangeably with Shadow. It turned into a mess in my opinion. Fel and Void were inherently evil while Shadow wasn't. But since Legion, even Light has shown its dark side (no pun intended), which is contradicting, because that's exactly what made Shadow risky and what it was used for.

 

Now Shadow (Alleria) is used for good and Light has shown to corrupt. It is simply no longer clear what's good or bad. Light - and to certain extent, Arcane - were the only magics allowed in the earlier empires, and for good reason.

 

Now Light can be considered worse than Shadow, which means "the general population" might be happier seeing Warlocks strolling the streets with their demons out rather than see a priest preach the Light in the cathedral.

 

It makes no sense. It's Archbishop Benedictus all over again.

 

 

TL;DR:

So Alleria = Lillith, Turalyon = Inarius and Arator is the first nephalem born out of demons and angels. World of Diablocraft is here :D

I'd say the only neutral force nowadays would be Life - it's pretty consistently been either good or passive, but I can't think of actual Life/Nature being evil at any point. Only when corrupted by another magic.

This will depend on how much the gen. pop. actually know. For many of them, Naaru, Army of the Light, Illidan etc. are just elaborate tales that happened on another planet. They've never seen a Naaru, they haven't been on the Vindicaar, they never saw Illidan.

They could just as easily continue following the Light unless we specifically remove it as an option for them.

That's hard to say. Even life magic corrupted some parts of the world. I believe that Quilboars (descendants from Agamaggan) slowly became corrupt over time for example, long before the shenanigans going on in Razorfen Downs.

 

Although admittedly, this is the only example that I know of in which life magic corrupted its environment.

I'm wondering how much of the Quilboars was due to corruption by magic, though. You could say that they are just doing as nature intends. There is limited land, food, etc. for the Quils/Orcs/Tauren etc., so are they forced to be aggressive? Like a bear needing to feed, for example?

Hmm, that's some food for thought for sure but Agamaggan's spirit did mention they strayed from his path or vision or what he called it; there was definitely something wrong if even he (it?) wanted to put a stop to them.

True. They probably started to get more aggressive due to threats to them, then took it too far. That's probably when Aga started to disapprove. Attacking Orcish/Tauren wagons to try and scare them, for example.

      It seems we're getting a whole lot of Alterac Valley soon, as Classic is getting the 1.12 version in one of the latter content releases and we're getting the special 15th Anniversary edition on live servers in Patch 8.2.5 during the event! Today at midnight CEST there's another Play with the Blues event on the 8.2.5 PTR gathering all Valley enthusiasts and all you have to do is hop on to the PTR and use the Group Finder to jump in!

      You can get the high-rez versions of the two original mounts from the event, which you can check out here as well.
      Play with the Blues (source)
      Tomorrow 12:00 AM CEST, please join us on the 8.2.5 PTR for an old school Alterac Valley Play with the Blues.
      Starting promptly at 3:00 p.m. PDT, Blizzard employees will be testing our 15th Anniversary rendition of AV on the PTR, and you can join us for some strife in the Field of Strife.
      Please log into the PTR by that time and then open your Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and switch to the Player vs. Player tab. You’ll see Alterac Valley waiting for you to join.
      Afterward, please return to this thread with your feedback.
      Thank you!

      The news image above is fan art created by Dogslug. You can find more of his work here.
      Blizzard mentioned multiple times that they would add Allied Races whenever they fit the story. The Horde's hottest candidates are currently the Vulpera of Vol'dun, even though their story doesn't make a whole lot of sense right now. Recent rumors suggest that Gilgoblins could be in the final pair of Horde Allied Races too.
      The Vulpera currently have too many unique animations, and they are a community-favorite. Pretty much every Horde player wants them to become playable. They're coming, and it's just a matter of when. We think the first set of Allied Races will be introduced in Patch 8.2.5 with the second one coming in Patch 8.3.5. Based on datamining, the Vulpera should be live on or before September 20th. You can find all their customization options here.

      On the other side of the spectrum, the Alliance will get Mechagnomes led by Prince Erazmin of Mechagon, but it's still not clear what the second race will be.

      Lightforged Forsaken led by Calia Menethil are a possibility based on the Before the Storm novel and Calia also received a new model in the initial Patch 8.2.5 build.
      Next up are Gilgoblins! We encounter them in zones like Vashj'ir and Nazjatar in Patch 8.2. They are a species of aquatic goblins created by Hobart Grapplehammer. Gilgoblins are very similar to traditional Goblins. They have various tattoos and fins on their arms to help them swim.

      Gilgoblins are currently not included in the game files as playable races as opposed to Mechagnomes and the Vulpera. They only exist as creatures.

      The female model has more customization options compared to the male model. Would you like to see them become playable in the future?

      We know that Blizzard wants to add more customization options to World of Warcraft, and a recent leak suggests that all Allied Races will become customization options in Patch 9.0 except for the Nightborne and the Vulpera. Let's see what the first set of Allied Races is going to be now that Patch 8.2 should hit Public Test Realms reasonably soon!
      TL;DR
      The first set of Allied Races (Mechagnomes/Vulpera) coming in Patch 8.2.5 on or before September 20th. The final set of Allied Races will include Gilgoblins and Lightforged Forsaken (based on the Before the Storm novel) in Patch 8.3.5. We know that Mechagnomes and the Vulpera are coming, but what about the second set of Allied Races?

      Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You'll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a - mostly - frozen lake. One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you're prepared for the weather.

      Today's hotfixes come with a lot of nerfs to Queen Azshara. Vitality Conduit now correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Queen Azshara When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Fixed an issue where casting either Moonfire or Regrowth twice in a row while affected by Repeat Performance was not triggering the silence. Fixed a bug on Mythic difficulty where the damage effect from Deferred Sentence could trigger the healing reduction from Obey or Suffer right as the decrees transitioned between each other. Siege of Boralus  Corrected an issue where players’ pets were unable to attack the tentacles during the Viq’Goth encounter. Items
      Heart of Azeroth Vitality Conduit (Essence) correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields on them. Learning new ranks of Conflict and Strife (Essence) should now properly grant achievements such as Power Up.

      Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1, according to Blizzard, despite the fact that in previous Seasons, it ended around the twelve-week mark.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Is this being cut off soon? Or are you leaving it on indefinitely?
      It’s been 8 weeks now, and 8.2 kicked off with 4 weeks of AK already calculated into the game, so in theory, we’ve had 12 weeks of AK at this point. AK ended around the 12-week mark in the prior seasons.
      This is an inquiry, I’m not asking that it be cut off. I think they should leave it on, but that wouldn’t fit the prior seasons.
      No to both questions. 🙂
      As things currently stand, Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1.
