Blue Posts Roundup: September 5th

Recommended Posts


The latest blue posts roundup covers Conquest rewards for the first week of the new PvP Season, Uldir difficulty, and Xavius requirement removal from the Good SuramaritanGood Suramaritan achievement.

Conquest Rewards Item Level 280?

The weapon reward you'll get after collecting 500 Conquest Points will be of item level 345, not 280, it's just a visual bug.

280 ILVL from 500 conquest points?? IS this a bad joke?? How are we gonna get proper pvp gear like that?

Once you've hit the required Conquest Points you'll receive a quest where you can choose which weapon you want (based on the weapons your class can use), and the weapon will be of item level 345.

The 280 item level on the Conquest bar is a display error which should be fixed in an upcoming update.

Good SuramaritanGood Suramaritan No Longer Requires Xavius Kill

Defeating Xavius (The Stuff of Dreams) is no longer required to unlock the Nightborne.

Hey all,

This quest was actually just updated to no longer needing a Xavius kill.
The Nightfallen quest “The Stuff of Dreams” no longer requires defeating Xavius in Emerald Nightmare.
Good luck out in Suramar!

Uldir Difficulty & Pugs

Whereas the first three bosses pose no issues, Zul, Mythrax, and G'huun are a step up in difficulty for pugs that usually lack the the required coordination.

I mean...Zul was a total nightmare. Mythrax is a question mark. Every fight in there just feels really hard. When we won, we BARELY won...every time. I can't even imagine Ghuun. These are supposed to be tuned for 340 ilvl people. But it honestly just feels like heroic in difficulty. For a first raid, it's just too hard for normal. I realize difficulty is good, etc. But keep in mind that an average 340 pug with zero consumables should be able to clear normal with maybe 1 or 2 wipes per boss. That's not what is happening here. These bosses seem to be tuned at that level of difficulty if you are 355 ilvl. It's just way off. Did anyone else feel this way about their normal pug runs? (If you ran it with your guild and cleared everything, and want to brag, I don't care. I am talking about pugs clearing NORMAL mode.)

There are just so many pass fail mechanics. It really seems like they will kill pugs this expansion.

Normal was fairly easily, I think the jump of difficulty when you get to Zul might be a little too harsh if anything but I wouldn't say they're too hard at all.

My entire raid on average is about 343 ish (I'm at 346), and the first three bosses we could almost ignore abilities. In fact we pulled Fetid Devourer and actually thought it was a mini boss and didn't realize we were fighting the actual boss until it was already at 50%.

The first three are going to be fairly easy to pug, but once you get to Zek'voz people will need to actually know what's going on. Zul, Mythrax, and G'huun might be a little difficult for a while considering pugs typically lack the coordination that is required there. You'll see pugs start to get it though once people have seen the fights more, its still the first week so this is pretty normal.

Stop sitting on the fence and form an opinion you are saying its easy but its also hard?

I did, I said I think the first three are fine but the difficulty ramp of Zek'voz and Zul feels a little off for normal in comparison to the first three.

No idea what if any changes are in the works for the raid at this point in time but I'm just sharing what my experience last night was with it.

You are a community manager for Blizzard and you didn't know it was a boss until it was 50%? How disconnected are you from the game?

My guild is very much not a Normal difficulty raiding group, we're definitely more Mythic focused, so normal isn't a challenge and instead we goof off in it, finding ways to kill each other, messing around with each other in voice chat, etc. It's pretty easy to be doing that and not paying attention to what you're pulling.

N-no one's going to point out Yth's accidental "it's still the first week so that seems pretty normal" pun?

I can't believe it too more than a page for someone to catch that, GD is getting slower ?

Unable To Face Cenarius In The Emerald Nightmare

Blizzard is aware of a bug that causes Malfurion not to port you to Cenarius. Have all members leave the raid and tell your raid leader to Reset All Instances.

Hello! I killed the five bosses before cenarius, returned to the core of the nightmare and malfurion just won't open the way to cenarius. Why?

Hey there Morkhaz,

We are indeed seeing some more reports about Malfurion not always being too helpful in porting characters to Xavius. There is a small work-around that you can try though. 

Good luck! ?

I should hope it's a display error on the mythic chest. did a +4 and it says "210 ilvl" rewarded next week. lolwut?


 to be honest it better be much better than that. m0 give 340 by default. m+ better start increasing by 5 per rank ffs.

      There's been a rash of pacifist arena combatants in the Theater of Pain dungeon since a recent hotfix and players have had their Mythic+ runs ruined by it, but fortunately there's a couple of potential fixes!
      As for what the bug is - basically what happens is that that mini-bosses in the arena section will simply not attack players and remain neutral NPCs, ruining Mythic+ keys due to the % of enemies and players having planned their routes around them:
      However, the mob does become hostile for an EXTREMELY small amount of time, but therein lies fix No.1:

      The slightly more complex one, if the first one isn't working out for you, entails bringing over another mini-boss which will trigger the passive ones once you defeat the active one. Alternatively you can plan around the mini-bosses entirely, but method No.1 should work well enough.

      It seems Mike "Qwik" Ybarra, Blizzard's co-leader, isn't done with his community interaction, and is now expanding it to, well, anyone! He has made a Discord server for to everyone interested in finding a group for any Blizzard game (and potentially some others as well), focusing on WoW and Mythic+ in particular:
      You could even end up playing with Blizzard's co-lead yourself, as he frequently asks for various roles for his own runs. He also will not be talking about any plans or what's going on behind the scenes for WoW specifically, but might talk about game development in general and will read suggestions for improvements:
      I will not answer any WoW roadmap/future features, etc. questions here. Ion and team answer those ?
      Yeah I will answer game dev, personal etc questions but not work items relating to future things. Fine to suggest things. He also mentioned that he's well aware of the potential for the server to get out of hand (both in terms of player numbers and comments that might appear), but he has the solution for that too:
      I don't know discord well. Someday I will find someoen who does ?
      But if it does [get out of hand], deleting this is easy.
      Just how successful this discord will be remains to be seen, as there are many similar LFG servers out there, but you can be sure this one will draw plenty of attention due to its high-profile creator (and there's already plenty of well-known WoW community faces on there as well). However it plays out, this is another really good sign that Ybarra actually is one of the WoW community and has good intentions for the game and the players, so let's see what happens!

      Here's some cool artwork from Olivia Leppard, showcasing what some potential Dranei, Blood and Night Elf-related weapons might look like. The idea of racial heritage weapons to go with the armor sets is pretty great in general and has been talked about for a long time now, basically ever since heritage armors were introduced, and as we can see below, there isn't a lack of options.

      The BE staff and bow, Dranei flail and NE fist weapon look particularly awesome to me, but it's all really impressive work there so if you want to check out more from her, head on over to Leppard's Artstation page.

      Blizzard is adding new Feet cosmetic armor to the game in Patch 9.1.5. In this post, we're looking at the new items in more detail.
      Tauren and Trolls will appreciate new boots coming in the latest patch. On the 9.1.5 PTR, they can be purchased from the Trial of Style NPCs, but their source remains unknown for now. Below, we previewed all the new models.

      Augur's Walkers

      Bloodbathed Slippers

      Boots of the Blightbelcher

      Cleric's Sabatons

      Undaunted, the deaf and hard-of-hearing Warcraft guild, have completed Ahead of the Curve: Sylvanas Windrunner. Congratulations!
      Undaunted is at it again! The guild earned AotC Denathrius and cleared 3/10 Mythic Castle Nathria on March 26, 2021. Yesterday, a post on Reddit revealed that they now downed Sylvanas on Heroic difficulty. Now, Mythic difficulty awaits. We wish them the best of luck! Here is a screenshot of the guild shared on Reddit.
