Damn you, Blizzard. Now I'll have to go back to WoW.

Welcome to World of Warcrack, I mean Warcraft. The game is fine if you're super casual, though I think they'll improve in 8.1

Two things really tempt me to go back to WoW: Kultiran Humans and now this bloody mount.

The game is also fine if you're more hardcore and don't pay attention to WQ's outside of emissary requirements. M+ is a lot of fun for me and my friends even if the rewards are rather low. I started falling into the "MUST DO ALL WQ's!" trap in the first two weeks and then decided it's a bad idea because of burnout risks. The fact that the amulet requirements drop every week by ~30% means I don't feel forced to grind every single azerite WQ out there either, and rather just do M+ for quite less azerite rewards.

 

The game is miles better when you do M+ and raids with friends though. It is an incredible difference in player experience when you pug things, both in M+ timer and raid results & the fact that it's just more enjoyable to experience things with friends.

 

The latter is definitely a dealmaker/breaker for me. If I had no friends to play this game with, I'd just stop.

To be fair, even with all its limitations and shortcomings, current WoW is one of the best WoW ever, always plenty, varied (say all you want but there are more reward-relevant World Quest types leading you to different places in the world than there ever were daily quests before) and rewarding content to do and so much to explore if you are new!

Can't wait to get my Mag'har / Dark Iron leveling and almost finished with Zandalari / Kul'tiran rep requirements just by doing the AP quests, also Mythrax and G'huun Mythic need killing for my guild still and I'm looking forward to Famed Slayer of G'huun on both horde and alliance side this tier, and the next MDI to cheer for my boye Ashine, so much exciting stuff happening!

The only real criticism I have about current WoW is the fact that I can't experience the full story (And upcoming raid) by playing only one faction. I have no idea about any of the Drustvar lore on my belf.

Yeah that's a limitation for people who don't play both factions, I've had a double blast playing on both sides this time as things were quite different instead of repeating the same thing over on the other faction!

got mine!  just wished it was also a water mount, that would be cool! And blizz should have thrown in the parrot as well!

Some player ingame was mentioning that this thing can ride on water (like with waterwalking from shamans or DKs).

I wasn't able to find any confirmation on this, anywhere. Can someone test this and clarify?

🙂 thanks a lot

Just checked and Dreadwake does not have waterwalking. Pop a Draenic Water Walking Elixir if you want to mess with people.

      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?

      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.
