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!

They have a Demonic Titan that destroys planets! For all I know the devil himself can eat his heart out!

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 Battle for Azeroth Dungeons Bonus Event is underway!
      THIS WEEK
      All week, open Group Finder (default hotkey: I) to queue for any Battle for Azeroth dungeon on Normal or Heroic difficulty.
      Alternatively, get a group of veteran dungeoneers together and travel to one of the Battle for Azeroth dungeons on Mythic difficulty:
      Atal’Dazar Temple of Sethraliss The Underrot The MOTHERLODE!! Freehold Shrine of the Storm Tol Dagor Waycrest Manor Look for the following all week long:
      Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar or Chronicler Toopa in Boralus has a quest for you – Emissary of War. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it within the Adventure Journal. Quest requirement: Complete 4 Battle for Azeroth dungeons on Mythic difficulty. Rewards: One loot box containing a piece of gear from Heroic difficulty The Eternal Palace. Passive bonus: The final boss in each dungeon drop additional loot on all difficulties (except Mythic Keystone difficulties.) EVERY WEEK
      The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.

      Frozen Arathi Basin (Resource Race)
      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.

      Blizzard is working on some hotfixes for Queen Azshara that will go live with maintenance in each region. The final boss of The Eternal Palace will be nerfed soon so that more guilds can fill the Mythic Hall of Fame one week ahead of Classic launch.
      The faction imbalance is quite strong with this one because only 5 Alliance guilds have defeated Mythic Azshara so far. On the Horde side of things, we've got 30 guilds that downed the final boss. Hopefully, more Alliance guilds will down her after the nerfs, so that cross-realm raiding will be enabled soon.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’re working on the following hotfixes today. We intend to apply to these changes to the Queen Azshara encounter with weekly maintenance in each region:
      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. Arcane Wards now energize slightly slower for smaller raid sizes on Normal and Heroic difficulties. Fixed an issue that allowed Arcane Vulnerability to apply when the victim wasn’t in line of sight of Queen Azshara. We’ll update this post if there are any further changes, and when the hotfixes go live.
    • By Stan
      Some of the previously-announced hotfixes for Queen Azshara are now live. The rest will follow soon after maintenance.
      Azshara will no longer apply Arcane Vulnerability to targets out of LoS and her Ancient Wards now energize slower for smaller raid groups on Normal and Heroic.
