Season 2 Mythic Keystone Affix: Reaping

Recommended Posts

HOYzSiG.jpg

The Infested affix is retiring with opening of the second raid of the expansion in Patch 8.1. Every Mythic Season comes with a new affix and in this week's PTR 8.1 Build 28202, we have a brand new level 10 affix called Reaping themed after the Loa of Death.

Affix Description
Reaping Non-boss enemies are empowered by Bwonsamdi and periodically seek vengeance from beyond the grave.

We don't know exactly how the affix works, but it seems that you'll have to kite non-attackable spirits of slain enemies for a certain amount of time before they disappear. Any wild guesses? Let us know in the comments!

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

My guess is that it works similar as the shrine buff of Bwonsamdi you can get as Horde : 

  1. Ghosts spawn from dead bodies, focusing someone and dealing massive damage upon reaching the focused target
  2. Dead bodies are "pulsating", so that they deal AOE damage in a small range
  3. a combination of the before mentioned effects

Maybe they will be like the Ghosts from the 2nd Boss from waycrest manor, that appear when he burns, and just hit everything in their close vicinity.  I hope it will be like each non-boss enemy slain, will appear close to a player and avenge his own death immediately. Following that player for about 10 seconds, trying to reach him but damage all friendly units in his path.

That would make aoe scenarios, where several mobs die at the same time, interesting movement tasks.

      Legion Legendary items classify as Legacy, and their bonuses are inactive so that they won't work in Shadowlands even at lower levels.
      Blizzard is re-adding some of the Legion Legendary powers in Shadowlands, so it makes sense to completely disable the old Legion Legendaries with the same effects to prevent balancing issues.
      Note that the effects won't work even at lower levels. We looked at Sephuz's Secret, for instance, and the Legendary item requires level 40, but the effect won't work even then.

      The effects you get from Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings and Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker will still work, even Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve (Wrathion's Legendary Cloak) effects remain unchanged.

      We further checked out Etheralus, the Eternal Reward (Legendary WoD ring), and the effect still works.

      The same goes for Xing-Ho, Breath of Yu'lon and other cloak effects added in Mists of Pandaria.

      To wrap this up, the change only affects Legion Legendary items, and you should still be able to use other Legendary items from previous expansions during Timewalking.

      Scripe, the Raid Leader of Method and Guild Master of Echo, admitted he was involved in real money trading with the Gallywix boosting community.
      Blizzard recently suspended some members of the Gallywix boosting community that were involved in exchanging gold for real money.
      Today, Scripe confirmed that he decided to buy gold directly from Gallywix instead of buying WoW tokens, and the agreed exchange rate was apparently 50 USD/EUR for 1 million gold, based on the following spreadsheet posted on Reddit.
      Placeholder for tweet 1290652868115128322 In case the above tweet gets deleted.

      For the World First Ny'alotha Race progression when there was no Corruption Vendor, Method needed to buy BoE items with the best Corruption Effects for millions of gold across all servers and transfer them to Tarren Mill.
      The total expenses for BoE items and WoW tokens came to a whopping 128,473,245 gold, and you can find a list of all items the guild purchased here.
      Core members of Method raid team have reformed as Echo and the guild is lead by Scripe.

      SauceISR discovered something strange going on in Quel'thalas on the Shadowlands Beta.
      There is a Void Elf-like shield (skybox?) in one of the areas in Quel'thalas. It currently has no spawns/NPCs, and we do not know what purpose it should fulfill. Maybe it was intended for Void Elves at some point but was later scrapped during development. What do you think? Anyway, it's a cool find! You can check out MrGM's video of the skybox below.

      It seems there have been some issues with a few servers and the connections between Garona and Icecrown and Malygos won't happen tomorrow as planned, but at a later date.
      Realm Connections (source)
      Due to a previously unforseen issue, we have decided to hold off on connecting Garona to Icecrown+Malygos until a later date, to be determined. The other listed realm connections will go ahead as planned tomorrow. The connections still happening tomorrow after extended maintenance:
      Realm Connections (source)
      During a special maintenance period (currently planned for 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. PDT (10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. EDT) on Thursday, August 13), the following realm connections will be made:
      The Frostwolf and Vashj realms will join Drak’Tharon, Firetree, Malorne, Rivendare, Spirestone, and Stormscale . The Blackrock realm will join the Azjol-Nerub and Khaz Modan realms. The Bloodscalp, Boulderfist, Maiev, and Stonemaul realms will join the Quel’dorei and Sen’jin realms. Garrosh will join Aegwynn, Bonechewer, Daggerspine, and Hakkar. We are planning more realm connections for low-population realms, and we will post further notifications like this one in the coming weeks.
      Thank you!
