New Orc Running Animation in Patch 8.1

Recommended Posts

The Orc running animation has been updated on 8.1 PTR and here's a side by side preview of the new animation.

Grandfa made a post about the new Orc animation on the official forums and also posted a short clip comparing both live and 8.1 versions of the running animation. Do you prefer the old or new one?

Check out our Tides of Vengeance hub for the latest Patch 8.1 information!

Glad they did this. As soon as upright went live, I went and changed all my orcs to upright. I immediately hoped for an epic laxative to drop on my next kill lol.   🤭

The video doesn't seem to be loading for me. I watch youtube/twitch etc fine with 1080p 60fps. This is also the first video ever in IV that I can't seem to play. I'm in the Netherlands and have a 50/50 Mbit connection in case that matters.

 

Don't keep me in suspense, show me the running animation!

Same problem here

It's probably not working because of your ad blocker. There's a huge ad on the video you have to skip in order to play the video. I have no idea why people use ad blockers - they're loaded with malware.

Because people dont like sudden sounds from an ad (I remember freaking youtube having an ad with sound in the right side of the page), because even "prestigious" pages like Forbes which you can't see with adblock on, gives you a nice little gift as adware. Because for once, users can say "NO" to advertisers, and they are now less intrusive (there are way less pop-ups), if they are, people can just block it.

And because if you have any kind of clue (or a friend which has) of how a computer works, you can dodge the ad blockers with malware (and malware in general).

In short, they are convenient, and you can even whitelist pages that you support.

 

About the video, I'll say: "Neat. Does this change affect the fast running animation?"

Ah okay thanks for the info. I'm not going to start a discussion over why an adblocker might be good or bad as that'd be off topic, but suffice it to say that I'd rather just not watch the running animation over disabling my adblocker.

It's apparently because of the adblocker. I'll skip the video.

I sincerely hope they refine running animations for all races. Dwarves could get a similar treatment to Orcs, since their running animations are similar.

Other races still have some very weird looking running animations, such as Male NElves and Male Worgens, flailing their arms like Goofy.

I've never been bothered by Nelfs, which actually have some of the more refined animations in the game.  Female humans and female BElfs need some attention though.  They're very awkward in several of their motions and not of the same quality as most other racial animations.

im so glad to see blizzard using resources to fix cosmetic nonsense like this instead of fixing the broken and hated systems that are killing this expansion. way to prioritize resources ion, you're doing such a great job. remember when ghostcrawler ran this shit and the game was actually *gasp* good? i guess this is what happens when you hire a lawyer. sigh

Different teams fix different things.

Fixing design / tuning issues can ruin other classes / other systems if not done carefully. Fixing an art issue harms no one.

      We're revisiting Pandaria in Patch 8.3, so Blizzard added a new soft pink recolor of the good old serpent mount to the game. The source of the mount is a placeholder and unknown for now.
      Chalcedony Cloud Serpent
      The gentle Chalcedony Cloud Serpents love to play in the petals that fall in the Arboretum, coloring their scales a soft pink hue.

      Hallow's End has arrived on live servers and there are no notable updates this year. The Headless Horseman's loot has been adjusted to item level 395. Check out our Hallow's End guide for more information about the event.
      Blizzard (Source)
      It’s time for Tricky Treats, costumes, and—of course—the return of the Headless Horseman during this year’s Hallow’s End!
      Hallow’s End celebrates the break of the Forsaken from the Scourge.
      Fun and mischief reign as the Innkeepers of Azeroth give treats, and tricks, to whomever asks.
      The spookiest time of year has arrived once more, and the Headless Horseman rides forth to strike terror into the hearts and minds of Azeroth’s citizens.
      When: October 18–November 1
      Where: Trick-or-Treat throughout the inns of Azeroth, Northrend, Pandaria, Outland, Draenor, and the Broken Isles (Dalaran) for tasty treats and currency to buy Hallow’s End delights.
      All together now! —the Headless Horseman is back to set fire to Razor Hill and Goldshire once more. You’ll need to lend a hand on the bucket brigade to put them out and face the infamous rider.
      It would be a lovely time of year to take a stroll through the Scarlet Monastery’s Graveyard if the Headless Horseman hadn’t decided to make it his new lair. If you're lucky and succeed in routing this menace from within, you may ride off with his steed.
      Throughout Hallow’s End, characters level 20-120 will be able to queue up for this ghoulish encounter in the Dungeon Finder.
      This year you’ll be able to exchange your Tricky Treats for a newly added 2018 toy:
      Headless Horseman's Hearthstone Head to Val’sharah to undertake a quest that begins with the Hag of the Crooked Tree in Bradensbrook. Follow the tale through to its culmination and you’ll receive some Tricky Treats and a chance of receiving one of four utterly bewitching hats.
      Hat of the First Sister Hat of the Second Sister Hat of the Third Sister Hat of the Youngest Sister ACHIEVEMENTS
      There are a total of 21 achievements that can be earned during this event. Completing the Meta-Achievement, Hallowed Be Thy Name, rewards the title: The Hallowed.

      Ny'alotha, the Waking City comes with a raid skip and once you defeat the first boss, you'll receive the raid skip quest and must collect 4 Corrupted Flesh Samples from the raid's penultimate boss to gain access to the skip.
      Players on 8.3 PTR discovered that once you defeat Wrathion, you will receive the "Ny'alotha: MOTHER's Guidance" quest, which unlocks a raid skip, granted that you've defeated the raid's eleventh boss, Carapace of N'Zoth, four times. After that, you should be able to skip straight to Carapace of N'Zoth without having to deal with the rest of the bosses.
      Ny'alotha is a twelve-boss raid and it's a good thing that they decided to include a raid skip.

      Cross-Realm Mythic Eternal Palace opens next week and Blizzard just announced nerfs for Lady Ashvane and Queen Azshara on Mythic difficulty to go live with it on October 22.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hello!
      Earlier this week, the Mythic Hall of Fame for Azshara’s Eternal Palace reached its capacity, and guilds around the world have until the next weekly reset in each region to earn their Feat of Strength. At that time, Mythic difficulty will become available to cross-realm groups.
      Along with the closure of the Hall of Fame and the Achievement, we intend to make the following tuning changes during weekly maintenance in each region:
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Lady Ashvane Lady Ashvane’s health reduced by 5% in Mythic difficulty. Waterlogged periodic damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Rippling Wave damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Queen Azshara The "Stand Together!" and "Stay!" decree combination is no longer possible in Heroic difficulty. Overzealous Hulk and Tidemistress health reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Draining Azshara’s Ancient Ward now reduces its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Empowering a Ward of Power now increases its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Healer-specialization characters are now less likely to be targeted with decree combinations that include “March!” in all difficulties. Short Circuit now drains 10% less energy from the affected Ward in all difficulties. Essence of Azeroth now has an increased duration if there are fewer than 20 players in the raid in Normal and Heroic difficulties, and lasts 30 seconds (was 25) in Mythic difficulty. As always, we’ll let you know here if we decide to make any further changes.
      Thank you very much!
