Patch 8.1 Build 27826

Recommended Posts


Patch 8.1 is now up on test realms and we have a dump with new achievements, broadcast text, zones, scenarios, and more! This article contains spoilers!


  • A new War Campaign is available in Patch 8.1.
  • Two new raids have been added: Siege of Zuldazar & Crucible of Storms
    • It appears King Rastakhan and Mekkatorque will die in the raid.
  • Two new Islands will be available in 8.1.
  • Communities have been updated with more management tools.
  • Vol'jin's story continues. We datamined some broadcast text of his search for answers. The lines include conversations with Baine, Talanji, Bolvar (The Lich King) and Eyir. Vol'jin does not remember who told him to appoint Sylvanas to Warchief. It wasn't Bwonsamdi and Eyir can't provide answers to his questions either.
  • New scenarions have been added.
  • Gnomeregan Pet Battle Dungeon has been added.
  • Incursions are a new feature similar to Legion Invasions.
  • The Hivemind mount has been added to the game with a new model and animations. More secrets in 8.1?
  • Blizzard also added the Kul Tiran racial mount to the game.
  • A new Darkshore Warfront will be available in 8.1.
  • New Druid forms have been added:
    • Highmountain Tauren Moonkin Form
    • Kul Tiran Moonkin Form
    • Zandalari Aquatic Form


Broadcast Text

  • "Vol'jin, son of Sen'jin, once warchief of the Horde... Hear my voice and appear before us."
  • Talanji. Ya voice be a mighty one.
  • "Vol'jin! Is it really you, my old friend?"
  • Baine... ya heart beats strong and true... just like ya fadda. I be glad da demons didn't take ya.
  • Sylvanas led us to victory in the war against the Legion.
  • But since then... she has done much to strain the honor that binds the Horde together.
  • "I must know... when the voice spoke to you, bidding you to name her warchief... what spirit was it?"
  • "Ah, my young friend. Death be... dark. Me memory... not be what it once was."
  • Was it Bwonsamdi? Did he crave the death she would bring?
  • "Da memory, it be denied me by da shadows. Shadows... dat... dat be comin' for ya! Watch out!"
  • I remember dyin'. I remember glimpsin' da Other Side.
  • "I was expectin' ta see ol' Bwonsamdi, or Shadra, or Hir'reek... any of da loa."
  • Dere was a presence. Somethin' movin' in da shadows. Somethin' powerful.
  • "Sometin' not be right dat day. Da demons, deir blades slipped past me guard."
  • "Like dey be doin' now. I cannot hear dem, champion. Da voices of da loa be silent."
  • I been callin' ta Bwonsamdi for a long time. He not be hearin' me... or he been choosin' not ta answer.
  • "I remember it takin' me somewhere, but da memory of where be hidden from me. Ta keep me from sharin' da truth..."
  • "Da truth dat it might not be da loa who wanted Sylvanas to be warchief, but somethin' far more powerful."
  • "Ahhhh, ya come back. Did ya find da spirit of Vol'jin? Or ya here ta make a deal, eh?"
  • "Loa of death, your servant Vol'jin has called to you. Yet you have turned a deaf ear to his pleas."
  • "What? Nonono. Ya be mistaken, Talanji."
  • Speak plainly! Was it you who urged Vol'jin to name Sylvanas warchief?
  • Mind ya tone, bull-mon... or ya be talkin' with ya father soon enough."
  • "Why would me want da Banshee Queen in charge? Nononono. Sure, I be all for war and death, but dat Sylvanas... she be tippin' da scales too far."
  • "Balance be important! Besides, dat one got a nasty habit of keepin' what she kills. No, ya warchief be no friend to ol' Bwonsamdi."
  • Lich King. Da voice I heard as I be dyin'... tellin' me to name Sylvanas warchief... was it yours?
  • The Banshee Queen's schemes threaten the balance. I had no hand in them.
  • And me spirit bein' trapped in dis world... is dat your doin'?
  • Vol'jin... your soul has walked on the Other Side and returned. You have been altered... more than you know.
  • Is it you who be trappin' me soul in dis world? Ta jail me like ya jail da Scourge?
  • You are neither undead nor damned. You do not belong here. Leave this place at once.
  • I do not like de look of dis. I suggest we go... quickly!
  • Leave now or stay forever. The choice is yours.
  • "Minions of the Banshee Queen, leave this place or die."
  • Hold... you DARE bring a priestess of Bwonsamdi into MY halls?
  • "Eyir, speak with me if da others not be to your liking."
  • Hmm. Very well. You and your champion may approach. But know that deception will be met with destruction.
  • "Queen of da Val'kyr. My spirit was sent to da Other Side, den returned. Was dis your doing?
  • "Shadow hunter, you are no longer a mere spirit. What you have become is something beyond my power to forge."
  • Who be havin' such power? Could it be da same one who bid me ta name Sylvanas warchief?
  • You have been touched by the hand of valor. Such a noble force does not scheme for mortal thrones.
  • So whoever whispered to me's not da same as who sent me back?
  • "You have been granted all the knowledge I am willing to share. Leave now, and never return."
  • "Fine, if my troops can't kill you, then I will! For Daelin Proudmoore!"
  • Neferset City will fall!  ATTACK!!!
  • Quick scene of Azerite tank's shield going down and firing on the gang.,Quick scene of Azerite tank's shield going down and firing on the gang.
  • "I gonna need to walk around, be in dis place, kick over some bones. Ya best keep your weapon handy just in case.$b$bLet me know when you be ready."
  • Destroy zhe - Vait... vhat is ZHAT?!
  • PLACEHOLDER scene of Lightforged beacons dropping and troops moving out.
  • "Alright, here we go! We got the fuel, we got the plan, and we got the hands to push the buttons to make it happen!"
  • "We're gonna show Mekkatorque that we ain't so stupid after all. Once his ship's on fire, we'll land on it and send out one of them SOS  things."
  • "He's gonna be flying back, and I bet he'll be all, oh no, I've been outwitted by Gallywix, he destroyed my ship, I better save everyone!"
  • Then when he gets there he'll see us and realize he's been DOUBLE outwitted! HAH!
  • That's the part where you and me blow him up on his burnin' airship. You can't get more dramatic than that!
  • "I'm so excited, all my chins are shakin'! One thing at a time, let's blow up that ship."
  • Ya words be troublin', tho. Step forward, Speaker of da Horde. Maybe dere's a way ta find da answers ya seek."
  • For Kul Tiras!
  • Da Lich King didn't bring me back. Eyir be claimin' she don't got da mojo. Bwonsamdi be as confused as da rest of us. And none of dem were eager ta see Sylvanas in charge.
  • No matter de circumstances, she is leader of de Horde. I will do all I can to ensure dat her rule is a just one."
  • "Zandalar still stands because of your courage, Talanji. Your father was mired in da old ways, dreamin' of a troll empire lost to time."
  • "But you be da first to look to da future... to see what da trolls can become. Ya be young, but ya be righteous. Call on me spirit if ya ever need advice from an old chieftain."
  • "For now, I gonna keep searchin' for answers. If dere be new enemies gatherin'  in da shadows, den I best be huntin' dem... before dey hunt us."
  • The Emperor was in need of trusted messengers and deliverymen.

It appears King Rastakhan and Mekkatorque will die in the raid.

î kinda doubt it - i saw a model of Mekkatorques escape pod somewhere ... this sounds more like an " MIA but alive" thing

As a Horde player Mekkatorque's death would suck balls.

Kill Jaina, kill Magni, kill the Falstad, kill Malurion or Genn.... but don't screw with Mekkatorque...  Gnomes are the only fun part of the Alliance and Mekkatorque always makes me smile and happy when he's involved.

We need more Mekkatorque not less.

That’s really unfortunate, I’ve been dying to get my hands on the new Feral Druid changes. I’m sure they know of the issue though, so all we can do is wait.

Here it is! It's called "mekkatorque_escapepod" and has three animations: death/stand/submerged.

      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!
      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.

      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.

      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.
