The First BfA Secret Uncovered: Baa'l Pet

Recommended Posts

TMwLsOU.png
 

The secret finding Discord and Warcraft-secrets.com have been hard at work gathering pebbles in search of the elusive The HivemindThe Hivemind mount, but they've found something else instead. Baa'l, the battle pet was at the end of a 13 pebble long hunt with the small items hidden throughout BfA zones, and the seekers needed help from Uuna to defeat Baa'l in battle. This is the first secret uncovered in Battle for Azeroth since it went live, with a few others dug up during the beta, so big congrats to all you secret finders out there that contributed.

Now, it seems likely that Baa'l is just the next step in the Hivemind puzzle, as he has some interesting things to say when summoned: “Souls fEast on enDless shrieKing, in darKNess they writhe and scream, yOu WiLl join thEm, toGether forEver morE!”

You can check out the full details on this hunt and how to get your own Baa'l and perhaps even join the secret finding community over at Warcraft Secrets. Until more is known, good luck to all the secret seekers out there!

so blizz thought it a "good idea" to put in a Molach, Satan, Lucifer, Devil himself pet?

 

I always thought this game questionable... I need to look no further.  great job, make sure you create some golden statues, and empty bodied belly bulls in which to roast children alive in

That'll complete things.  I'm out.   %14.99 a month no more.

"I'm out" he says, feigning outrage, as he undoubtedly tabs back into the game to continue playing.

They literally have game about Diablo himself (in fact 3 games) and this is what ends your subscription? Ffs. I can understand if you're religious, but you knew full well that Blizzard has done this.

I sincerely hope this is strictly troll food.  If not, how did it take you this long to come to that conclusion? I'm legitimately curious where you've been since launch.  Demon summoning has been in the series for quite some time.  Or is it okay as long as they're "space demons"?

To be fair space demons are the superior demons, everyone knows that. It's why Diablo's playerbase is shrinking while Legion was a hit!

Spiritual or not, I hope people admit to themselves that this pet is a bit strange. Diablo, legion, Wrath etc.. were all games were you took on the role of defeating evil. I understand playing a warlock could be questionable as well but defined as a hero that uses space demons is a bit different. Having a pet like this that screams damnation at you when you summon it is going a bit too far. There are a lot of people that play this game that are sensitive to this kind of material due to their spiritual beliefs.

I don't know why Blizzard feels the need to insert a pet into the game named it baal; it doesn't fit in anywhere in the game. The thing is not cute it is creepy as fuck.

Ba'al was originally a thunder god; the king of the gods.  It wasn't until later that "other" religions demonized it as foreign (as was common practice).  If anything, this cute little guy is probably a clue to the hive mind mount, or to the Old God plot in general (maybe a nod to Odin, or something else having to do with thunder).

Well nosidering that there is a Diablo pet already dont think this is any different then that,WoW has some very weird stuff already in forms of Urzul mount(tortured draenei put together as a mount),Thaddius(Naxx raid boss that is literally made out of women and childs flesh sewn together) and thats only the start of weird stuff.I dont know why would you want to stop playing because reasons like this since its only a video game after all.There are many many games where you are an evil charater and you know that from the get go and milions of people still play it.

Diablo was literally a game about Heaven and Hell. It is literally Blizzards version of Demons terrorizing the living and killing off anyone in their way. This pet really shouldn't shock anyone considering there's a franchise that is embodied with Hell and demons.

Much better troll, OP was way to obvious... Ohh and if either of you are serious.... lol :) Im not sensitive to your spiritual beliefs, neither should blizzard or anyone else be. Your spirituality is your problem, not mine :)

So, imaginary things like satan, lucifer or the devil are questionable? That's kinda funny.

What came to my mind the first time I saw the flavour text was: "anagram", and the letters are sedkknowlegee, wich mean nothing.

Until you remove the letters that repeat and you get sedknowlege. The single anagram that you get from it is "golden week". On wikipedia, the result is this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Week . 

My thoughts? Diablo related content added or announced according to the above mentioned holidays.

      The new season begins tomorrow in the US and Wednesday in the EU, and Blizzard have a survival guide video as well as the scedule ffor the Conquest PvP items to go along with the previously announced season 4 conquest notes!
      Check out everything else that's arrived with the new patch right here and the patch notes here.
      Season 4 (source)
      Battle for Azeroth Season 4 begins, January 21 and includes an all-new Affix—Awakened— for Mythic Keystone Dungeons, Heroic Difficulty Darkshore Warfront, and more.
      Mythic Keystone Dungeons Season 4
      Season 4 has a new affix—Awakened. While the Awakened affix is active, players will discover obelisks throughout the dungeon, which will pull players through the veil to the shadowy world of Ny’alotha. There, players will confront a powerful servant of N’Zoth which they must defeat or the servant will join forces with the final boss in the instance. Once the lieutenant has been taken down, the party will be returned to their regular reality in the location they’re currently standing in.
      Reward Updates
      Item levels of rewards from level 120 Normal, Heroic, and Mythic dungeons have been increased by 30 and can now be corrupted by N’Zoth. Baseline rewards are now item-level 400 from Normal, 415 from Heroic, and 430 from non-Keystone Mythic dungeons. During the first week of Season 4, rewards from end-of-run chests will be capped at item-level 445 for Mythic Keystone at +6 difficulty or PvP Rank 2, and the reward cache will contain a Season 3 reward. With the start of the second week of Season 4, the weekly cache will not be affected by the cap, and will reward Season 4 items at higher item levels.
      Check out the Mythic Keystone Dungeon Leaderboards to see who’s staying on top of the clock.
      PvP Season 4
      Season 4 brings new player-versus-player content including the new Teeming Islands Brawl. This large-scale battle brings together two teams of 10 on an island overflowing with powerful creatures. This Brawl brings an additional challenge to the shores of PvP Island Expeditions by increasing the total amount of players from six to 20 on the biggest Islands (Havenswood and Jorundall). Participants can earn two new mounts—the Vicious White Bonesteed (Horde) and Vicious White Warsaber (Alliance) and the highest-rated players will unlock the new Corrupted Gladiator’s Proto-Drake mount.
      Reward Updates
      Item level rewards in Random Battlegrounds have also been increased by 30. During the first week of Season 4, end-of-match rewards will be capped at item-level 445. This will require Challenger rank to earn. Beginning in week 2, Challenger rank rewards will be item-level 460.

      Blizzard have clarified that the mail issues with the Auction House won't affect players in the long-term, aka you don't have to worry your mails will expire. They're working on fixing the newly found issues and it will probably take them a few days. You can check out all the recently added issues at the bottom.
      AH Clarification (source)
      Hello.
      We’d like to clarify that nothing has been lost as a result of this issue. This is an issue with mail delivery, and we’re working to fix it. We currently expect that the fix is going to take a few days.
      During that time, the mail you can’t see is not subject to 30 days expiry. It will only begin counting down from 30 days once we’ve fixed it so that you can see it and interact with it in your inbox.
       
      AH Issues (source)
      Here are some additional issues that we have identified and are actively investigating:
      When items are returned in the mail from the Auction House, it can incorrectly contain more stacks than the displayed maximum of 16. This makes it look like some items are not being delivered. You will know if you are experiencing this if a mail appears empty but can’t be deleted. To retrieve the missing items in this scenario, take out all 16 of the displayed stacks, then close and reopen the mailbox to see the rest (you may need to repeat this several times). If a character buys commodities in high quantities, they may not be able to access their mail. The favorites list is not saving properly. We have resolved some of the issues causing the “Internal Auction Error” to pop up, but it is still occurring and we are continuing to look into it.

      As some players have already noticed, we got confirmation today that War Mode bonuses for Visions of N'Zoth daily quests have been disabled since Thursday. This was done due to a separate issue that will hopefully be resolved in the coming days, when the bonus will be restored.
      Check out everything that's coming with the new patch right here and the patch notes here.
      War Mode Bonus (source)
      We’d like to confirm that, yes, the expected War Mode bonus for Visions of N’Zoth Daily Quests has been disabled since Thursday.
      This was necessary for our team to work to quickly fix a different issue. Our top priority right now is addressing these concerns, and we expect to restore all intended functionality in the coming days.
      War Mode and the bonuses granted by War Mode in all other content are unaffected.
      Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.

      We've seen plenty of fan art imagining new class sets, especially since each class is no longer getting their own unique ones, but today we're going back to basics as redditor Anna_Richter took the first ever WoW raid sets and made them her own.

      With Molten Core still in full swing in Classic, these actual items are still very much relevant (not to mention as transmogs in retail), but Blackwing Lair is coming in under a month so Anna might want to go for Tier 2 next! With so many sets to choose for and it taking a fair amount of time to make these she's actually already mentioned what her next projects related to this will be:
      In any case we're definitely looking forward to seeing more from Anna, whichever her choice of set may be - whether it's tier 6, or the wrong choice.

      A big batch has arrived today with fixes to the Auction House, Azerite Powers and Corruption effects, increases to rare spawns, a nerf to the Defragmentation Punchcard in PvP, Vulpera and Mechagnome issue fixes and the usual large amount of quest tweaks and fixes.
      January 17 (source)
      Achievements
      Fixed an issue where a dead player's Damage Over Time effect could cause the raid to fail The Best of Us . Auction House
      Bids now display properly in the sell tab for caged pets. Fixed a bug causing the quantity field to be empty when selling a non-commodity. The “Uncollected” filter now filters owned battle pets as expected. The “Upgrades Only” filter now correctly applies to wands and shields. The "Usable" filter now filters profession-restricted items and owned toys as intended. Purchasing an entire listing now displays the item count in the seller's auction list. Players can now buyout an auction for which they are already the high bidder. Fixed a bug that caused some mail from the Auction House to exclude expected attached gold. Creatures and NPCs
      The Gaze of N'Zoth can now only be faction tapped while in War Mode. Onyx Warserpent’s Lightning Pool no longer hits players harder than intended. Taijing the Cyclone now resets properly. The spawn frequency of several Rare enemies in Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms Assault areas has been increased. Items
      Azerite Essences Fixed an issue that caused Breath of the Dying’s minor damage effect at Rank 1 or 2 to benefit from the Rank 3 increased proc chance against low health targets. Corruption Effects Fixed an issue preventing Twilight Devastation from triggering on ranged attacks. Infinite Stars damage reduced by 25% at all Corruption levels. Player versus Player
      The red punchcard Subroutine: Defragmentation now heals for 50% in PvP situations. Fixed an issue causing Breath of the Dying to have an incorrectly-lowered cooldown when used against player pets in PvP. Races
      The Vulpera Holy Relic Trick now heals for the correct amount. Fixed a bug preventing Mechagnomes and Vulpera from using ghost flying mounts when dead in appropriate areas. Fixed an expected sound effect on the voices of Pandaren Death Knights. Quests
      Vulpera can once again proceed during the Tirisfal Glades quest, "A Scarlet Letter ". Players who are outside of the Vision while their party defeats Ysedra the Darkener now receive quest credit for “Deeper Into the Darkness ”. Fixed a bug that could prevent Magni Bronzebeard from spawning as expected in “The Halls of Origination ”. It is again possible to turn in “Ancient Crypt Key ”. Titan Artifacts should now appear for the quest “Unearthed Artifacts ” regardless of the completion status of the Assault bar-fill objective. Assault daily quests such as “The Sun King's Chosen ” or “The Strongest Among Them ” now require 3 Rare kills (was 4). Rare kills now provide more credit for Assaults. User Interface
      Guild and community setting dropdowns no longer appear when they are grayed out. Visions
      Players should now find their Sanity draining more quickly after an extended period within Vision of the Twisting Sands and Vale of Eternal Twilight. Fixed an issue that was preventing an iLvl 430 item from dropping when you had completed two objectives and the boss in a Horrific Vision. This item will be awarded to players on their next run if they satisfy these conditions.
