The Hivemind Secret Solved, Mount Available!

Recommended Posts

Well, that didn't take long! It seems you can't keep the WoW secret finders in the dark for too long, as they've already broken through and managed to obtain the mount! Warcraft Secrets and the secrets discord were hard at work the past few days and today finally bore fruit as they pushed through all the colored crystal monocles and found their way to the Court of Stars.

From there it's a whole lot of petting kittens and purring, followed by phase-shifting platforms to navigate, and then the goal itself. While the very end of the guide hasn't been updated yet, it will be very soon so head on over to Warcraft Secrets and check out the full guide, and you might be riding this crazy thing soon as well.

And, of course, congratulations to everyone that helped out in the endeavor, it was an amazing performance by all involved!

Read the guide on how to get it and it kinda disappoints me that you can skip the monocle part by joining a grp that alrdy have them all and you being the one that enters the room to interact with the toy 😛 All the other parts look fun to me, getting the monocles, opening the color door, petting kittens, solving the "farmer, fox, chicken and corn"  riddle, a few hours of fun to do with friends and or guildies for a sweet reward. I thank the secret community for finding all of this out 😄

Got it yesterday thanks to group of awesome peeps.
Absolutely love this mount. But i think i shouldn't have traveled to Goldshire and accepted raid party invite.
Because later on there was an entire raid of flying brains on Stomwind and every single one was saying "WE ARE THE BORG! ALL OF YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED!"
...whoops

So I did this with some guildies and it was great fun but how in the name of that is holy did people manage to figure this out? Because doing the puzzles with guides made my eyes crossed and my brain hurt.

well we kinda got screwed.....  

Celestalon, one of the developers responsible for creating the Hivemind puzzles, has come forward on Twitter talking about how the Hivemind is actually supposed to work: The Joined Hivemind effect only applies to the group of people you did the puzzles with, as a special prestige bonus. The developers believe that having the effect work with everyone would make the mount a mandatory upgrade. 

You are able to swap people you are linked within your Hivemind by completing the puzzles within Court of Stars with a different group, but this will unlink you from your current group.

Once again pointless bullshit that wastes dev time that NEEDS to be going to the actual game, you know the one that is practically unplayable right now, the one that well over 2 million players have snubbed their nose at.

And just to top it all off, Blizzard puts these F'ing retarded restrictions on who can use your mount. Everyday they make this game worse and worse. I'm a wow lifer but I'm about out of patience with this expansion. 

If everyone in wow stopped playing entirely for a couple weeks the devs would turn the entire game around and fix all the bullshit that people hate.

You do know that this 'waste of time' was done by a couple of devs on their lunch break, like all the secrets, and reused existing assets so it basically cost 'us' nothing...

 

As for stupid restrictions... really can't you just be happy without wanting the world and a cake to go with it?

One again, someone who thinks their opinion is the only opinion pissing on a happy community celebrating a cool find.  This here is the true toxicity in the WoW community.  We can live without you and your whining.

I for one am truly enjoying this xpac.  I think the story is better than the last two and am having tons of fun.  Sure, there are things that can use some improvement.  But to go so far as to say it's "Practically unplayable" just shows how people can take a few bad things and just say the whole thing is *filtered* cause not everything is how they want it.

What, you think YOUR opinion is the only one that matters? Calling it a community is a joke. A very tiny percent of people actually still playing this game take part in those secret hunts, the rest wait until its done and its just a free mount.

Are you really that stupid? You actually think that massive quest line was put into the live game by two devs working on their lunch breaks? You think the options to put that into code and make it work properly were already built into 8+ year old content? You cant possibly be that dumb.

You realize they have more than 10 devs working on the game, right? The devs who work on mounts and quests are not the same devs who work on PvE or PvP content. Your entitled opinion and belief which makes you think you're "losing something you deserve" rather than gaining something from devs who otherwise wouldn't be doing anything (because they're not allowed to do their work, or entitled little crybabies like you will throw a temper tantrum about the lack of work put into the game by completely different devs which is hindered by upper management and share holders who only want growth). I don't really know why myself or anyone else is even answering you, you're too deluded in your little entitlement-bubble and have no idea how the real world works.

Could you please chill out and stop with the personal attacks? As for the coding, yeah actually. Have you ever worked on a large scale software project? Because I have. Nothing the size of WoW or in games, but you don't code everything by hand, you have huge libraries of code to reuse for similar purposes.

Apart from the actual logic behind the puzzles nothing in that quest line strikes me as something that would take a good coder, and say what you will about Blizzard but they have good talent, more than a few hours to actually implement, especially since most of it reuses existing assets (not just art but code).

So yes the common theory (I don't have the source) that it's just a couple of developers having fun on their lunch breaks... Like Pet Battles (work of one guy btw), to add something small and enjoyable to the game.

May be a silly question but can this be done solo without running it in a group? 

 

No. You need at 5 people at multiple points as you simply can't be in that many places at once.

      More transmog collections are getting completed! In the footsteps of DesMpehisto and his all Warrior plate transmogs done, redditor NoBromo1 has gathered up all currently available  cloak appearances in the game: 982, to be exact. With a fair number of players now collecting various full transmogs (including DesMephisto's current all 1-handers run, which is already at 95%), it'll be interesting to see if we can get a fully unlocked all transmog gear available on a single character any time soon.

      Now, I know what you're thinking, the above screenshot says 982/986, but NoBromo1 has the explanation:
      So, congratulations on the collection, and let's see more players get their various transmog gatherings complete!

      We have another round of US realm connections coming on August 20th, as 30 servers get joined in various configurations! There will be no extended maintenance this time around, as all mergers will be executed within the regular period.

      We've recently covered the growing issue the community is having with these mergers, so you can check that out as well.
      Realm Connections (source)
      During a scheduled maintenance period planned for 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. PDT on Thursday, August 20, the following realm connections will be made:
      The Eldre’Thalas and Korialstrasz realms will join the Akama, Dragonmaw, and Mug’thol realms. The Korgath realm will join the Cenarius, Perenolde, and Cairne realms. The Blood Furnace, Mannoroth, and Nazjatar realms will join the Azgalor, Azshara, and Destromath realms. The Ursin, Andorhal, Scilla, and Zuluhed realms will join the Eonar and Velen realms. The Madoran, and Dawnbringer realms will join the Azuremyst and Staghelm realms. The Garona realm will join the Icecrown and Malygos realms. Hyjal will join Proudmoore. 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!

      There's been a long-running discussion going about the aesthetics (and general nature) of the Forsaken. Some players ask for options for less tattered clothes, fewer protruding bones and generally a more human look. Others, as you'd expect, think the Forsaken's visual identity as actual undead and more monster-like individuals is a core part of their uniqueness and should actually be even more emphasized. Redditor and artist Nez_the_Quiet is squarely in the second group, at least as far as this amazing art piece goes, as he's imagined Derek Proudmoore and Calia Menethil as more forsaken Forsaken!

      While the double eyeless version of Calia may be a bit much, generally they do show off a lot more character than their in-game counterparts, but with Calia at least that's very intentional, as both her character and origins are a lot more on the light side of things. Derek, on the other hand, just looks straight-up awesome as the boniest pirate ever.
      You can see the discussion about the Forsaken's looks and general themes, especially Calia's potential role (which, as we recently found out is NOT to be the leader of the Forsaken - at least not yet) over in the reddit thread.

      The recent realm connections came with a few adverse side effects, it seems, as Blizzard merged realms of different languages, which creates issues on both ends of the spectrum.
      We've got hit up by @Scholer, who says the recent merge of Al'akir, Skullcrusher, Xavius with Burning Legion (EU) had a negative impact on gameplay because Burning Legion is mainly comprised of Polish players that do not talk English in the channels, so with the merge, there are English-speaking folks who do not understand Polish and vice versa.

      Here's how Trade Chat looks like after the recent realm connections.
      The issue has also been brought up on the official forums and Reddit, where the threads accrued hundreds of responses, the main concern being the recent connection of Frostmane and Aggra, a Portuguese realm.
      Currently, there are no other solutions other than buying a Paid Character Transfer off these realms, which can get quite expensive if you're planning on moving more characters from the affected realm to another.
      One Redditor calculated that it would cost a whopping 13,370 Euros to move the entire guild off the server!
      Has your server been affected by the recent realm connections? Let us know in the comments!

      Happy second birthday to Battle for Azeroth! The current expansion has been very controversial and contentious, but it did experiment with quite a few new concepts that didn't make a fair portion of the player base happy, which they made very clear, and hopefully those interactions will make the game as a whole better in the future. The many layers of RNG were the biggest issue with players in BfA, as well as the massive alt-unfriendlyness aspect, and the story to a certain extent, but the many new power systems introduced do show a willingness for experimentation, which can only be a good thing in the long run. WoW Classic is also only 12 days away from it's first birthday.
      As BfA turns two today, it's getting close to being the longest-running expansion since WoW's inception , so let's take a look at just how close it is. Here are all the expansions durations, as well as the base game for comparison:
      0. Vanilla WoW

      2 Years, 1 Month, 24 Days (784 Days Total)
      The one that started it all, and was even remade as WoW Classic.
       
      1. Wrath of the Lich King

      Source.
      2 Years, 25 Days (755 Days Total)
      Many players' favorite period in WoW, WotLK was the first expansion to push a very strong story narrative and focus on the final villain throughout the entire expansion, giving the final confrontation atop Icecrown Citadel a lot more weight.
       
      2. Mists of Pandaria

      Source.
      2 Years, 19 Days (749 Days Total)
      A somewhat controversial expansion, as some players deemed it to be too childish, but it turned out to be one of WoW's best to date.
       
      3. Legion

      1 Year, 11 Months, 15 Days (714 Days Total)
      Standing alongside Wrath of the Lich King, this is most players' favorite WoW expansion, as we saw the culmination of the Burning Legion storyline unfold.
       
      4*. Battle for Azeroth

      2 Years (731 Days Total), Ongoing
       
      5. The Burning Crusade

      1 Year, 9 Months, 29 Days (668 Days Total)
      The first ever expansion, it opened up so many new avenues for the game to go in, and showed us how to fly in World of Warcraft.
       
      6. Cataclysm

      Source.
      1 Year, 9 Months, 19 Days (659 Days Total)
      While revamping the old world was a brilliant move, the expansion itself wasn't that popular, with a rather anticlimactic ending in the Dragon Soul raid.
       
      7. Warlords of Draenor

      Source.
      1 Year, 9 Months, 17 Days (656 Days Total)
      As a large part of WoD was scrapped, we never got to see the expansion as it was intended, but the introduction to player housing through garrisons was very welcome, and is definitely one of the ideas that should be iterated on come future expansions.
       
      WoW Classic is at 354 days, but technically isn't an expansion, so it doesn't get an entry, but it does make an interesting question to see when (if?) Classic TBC might be coming and how long it could last!
       
      So, the expansion winner is clearly WotLK, only 30 days away from beating Vanilla's record, with MoP in second place merely 6 days behind. Meanwhile, BfA is only 25 days away from beating WotLK, 54 from Vanilla, starting today, and will almost certainly become the longest running WoW period in history, unless Shadowlands surprises us and comes out before mid-September.
      And there we have it, we did some timewalking ourselves and took a look at the real numbers behind the expansions, as they most certainly differ from what it felt like while playing those same expansions  - who would have thought WoD was the shortest expansion (despite it only having 2 major content patches, that post 6.2 period felt like an eternity)! As we look forward to Shadowlands we can see the expansions generally do conform to the 2-year period, with some 3-4 month exceptions. Whether that's the correct amount of time, given enough content, or if we'll see some changes in the future, perhaps longer individual expansion times with more patches in them, remains to be seen.
      As BfA turns 2, we take a look at all the expansion and Vanilla durations and compare them!
