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.

      It's time to check in on the plague of WoW, as bots are spreading more and more. We've rounded up some bot encounters players have been reporting recently, with a few pretty stunning figures in there as well.
      Let's start at the beginning of the bot life-cycle, as dack-janiels spotted a whoooole lot of "new players" over in Pandaria:

      Source: dack-janiels.
      Then we're on to some pretty startling calculations, as onetimelistener ran across a large batch over in one of their usual locations, Moonglade, as they sold off their ill-gotten gains. And while the math probably isn't quite 100% accurate, it's still frightening to see the potential numbers we're facing here:
      But how do these bots level? Well, several players ran into a pretty crazy farm method earlier this week, as a pet battle World Quest provided a whoole lot of fast XP.
      And while there was a lot of confusion over what exactly was happening there, they managed to figure it out:
      SleepyPB ran across over 50 bots doing this quest, and they were actually lagging the entire Nazjatar zone, with the lag getting worse when getting close to then. so he took matters into his own hands:

      Source: SleepyPB.
      And it wouldn't be a bot news post without some actual bot action! And while it's still possible the first video might be multiboxers, as there aren't that many of them, it seems far more likely it's bots (and the distinction is very important, as multiboxing isn't against ToS while botting very much is).

      One of the main frustrations for PUG Mythic+ players has always been finding groups, and there's a feeling going around that it's worse than ever before. With very selective and demanding requirements looming over your head, from Raider.IO score to a "meta" spec and more, players are getting increasingly surprised at group makers' demands and what they decline, as the standards are seeming incredibly high.
      However, there's a pretty simple explanation for these seemingly very unfair and unreasonable requirements: supply and demand.
      As you'll see from a few examples below, having a key, especially a higher level one, gets you SO many applications that even with the highest, craziest, most unreasonable standards, you'll still have plenty of choice. All of the below were taken very quickly (minutes) after a key was listed.

      Source: .tetchip

      Source: ntinglasts4evermson.
      But it's not just the higher level keys this happens at:

      Source : yogiho2.
      There's plenty more examples of the above to go around, but you get the idea. Obviously this is worst for DPS players as the supply is extremely higher than the demand, but with the more valuable keys from more desirable dungeons, even tanks and healers will be lining up to get into a group. Another factor for the insanely high DPS supply is the treatment tanks and healers get in groups, as most of the time, they get all the blame and a whole lot of toxicity. Combine that with the significantly harder gameplay and very high levels of stress because of the higher responsibility for those 2 roles, and you get many just re-rolling DPS, further skewing the numbers.
      And so before you get too down on yourself for having a hard time getting into a group, remember it's just a matter of numbers. You should still aim to improve yourself, and obviously getting a relatively stable group, or at least a few players together in your PUG travels is your best bet, but the important thing to remember is that there's just SO many players vying for those spots that getting declined isn't really a big deal at all.
      And perhaps the most important thing to learn from this? Value your own key immensely! What do you think of the Mythic+ application process? Anything you'd change about it?

      Winterhail created Shadowlands dungeon badges based on Pokémon.
      On their way to earn the Shadowlands Keystone Master: Season One achievement, Winterhail joked about collecting gym badges like Pokémon. As a result, the player came up with Shadowlands Mythic Dungeon Badges.

      We're again highlighting PvP changes Blizzard announced recently that will go live after this week's maintenance in all regions.
      PvP Tuning (source)
      We’re working on a new set of PvP tuning changes that will be applied to the game with weekly maintenance in each region (January 26 in this region). Here’s what we’re currently testing:
      Player vs. Player
      Players now deal 20% less damage to Death Knight, Hunter, and Warlock pets. In 2v2 Arenas, Dampening will begin at 20% when both teams have either a tank or healer. Druid
      Convoke the Spirits no longer casts Full Moon and Feral Frenzy when engaged in combat with enemy players. Mage
      Triune Ward (legendary) now provides 50% effective barriers (was 65%) in PvP situations.** Fire Infernal Cascade (conduit) effectiveness reduced by 33% in PvP situations. Paladin
      Holy Divine Favor (Honor Talent) cooldown increased to 30 seconds (was 25 seconds), and now increases cast speed by 30% (was 60%). Protection, Retribution Word of Glory’s healing has been reduced by 20% in PVP situations.
