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.

      Power Infusion has recently been a hot topic in the community, with the logs being heavily affected by it, as many non-Priest specs are getting a lot of buffs during fights to boost their overall DPS. There's even some drama surrounding who gets the buff, and Shadow Priests not wanting to give it away, which we've recently talked about, but today there's at least a solution to the logs part of the issue.
      Warcraft Logs have added markers for Power Infusion and Innervate, so you can now see not only if a player received one of these buffs during a fight, but also how many! 

      Warcraft Logs creator Kihra explains in detail:
      This should make it a lot easier to track individual player performances and for players to improve through the logs, as it is now clearer whether someone is just outdpsing/outhealing you because they're playing better, or if they just got a bunch of external buffs!

      The half orc half ogre Mok'Nathal finally get some love, as Lonely Road pictures made some concepts for the race! Rexxar's kind don't get much attention in WoW, but they will be featured in an upcoming cinematic by Lonely Road and so they got some pretty cool models ready!
      One of the characters above is having way too much fun and might just be too cool for Wow. Plenty of players would have preferred this particular race to the slightly more generic mag'har we actually got (although straight-backs are always welcome), so we can hopefully see more of them in the future and give those tauren some size competition!
      Some great work by Lonely Road!

      While we now know that the Archon survives the events of the 9.1 patch cinematic, the scene was somewhat reminiscent of something we've seen around the holidays last year, as the Archon was killed during a regular Spires of Ascension run.
      In the patch 9.1 cinematic we see the Jailer/Anduin stab Kyrestia in the chest and take out her "key", but we also see her moving afterwards, and Blizzard confirmed that she survives the attack. However, when she was taken down at the end of last year in the dungeon, she actually died and had a special text pop-up that said "As the Archon perishes, all life in the zone is wiped out!", so it's probably for the best that she survived the Jailer's attack. Zovaal and Anduin didn't/couldn't take her down, but a regular Doomguard apparently has no problems:
      The kicker here is that she respawned after her death and one of the party members commented on it, basically predicting what will happen in patch 9.1:
      The death animation itself doesn't seem relevant, as we won't get to see the cinematic events in-game directly, but her holding her side is. So it's quite likely we'll be seeing that particular character animation of the Archon, spearless and injured, when we go to her after the events of the 9.1 cinematic! We'll see whether this will be just a special thing for Kyrian Covenant members or (more likely) we'll all get to see and talk to her after what happens, and it'll be really interesting to see if she'll be using the same animation as above.
      In terms of what actually happened in the "kill" above, it was another manifestation of the already seen bug where a Warlock pet goes a little crazy, being both hostile and friendly at the same time and gaining some serious power. The fact it went on to actually attack and eventually take down the friendly NPC was new, however, and we haven't seen any reports of it happening since.

      The Starting Zone Podcast talked to Jeremy Feasel and Frank Kowalkowski, and we learned that they plan on adding 40 more Renown levels in Chains of Domination. Will flying be heavily time-gated?
      Currently, on live servers, the maximum Renown your character can earn is 40. Shadowlands Pathfinder is coming in 9.1, and flying in Shadowlands should be easier to unlock than in previous expansions because it's coming in the first content patch of the expansion, and the achievement isn't gated behind reputation grinds. But how long will it take to unlock flying when the patch hits live servers?
      Blizzard clarified that you would only need to finish the Covenant Campaign to unlock flying a while ago, but at the same time, they are adding 40 more Renown levels in 9.1, bringing the cap to 80.
      With 3 (or 2 in later phases) Renown levels per week, here's how long it takes to unlock Renown 40 on live servers:

      Shadowlands Release Week: Renown level 3; Week of December 1: Renown level 6; Week of December 8: Renown level 9; Week of December 15: Renown level 12; Week of December 22: Renown level 15; Week of December 29: Renown level 18; Week of January 5: Renown level 21; Week of January 12: Renown level 24; Week of January 19: Renown level 26; Week of January 26: Renown level 28; Week of February 2: Renown level 30; Week of February 9: Renown level 32; Week of February 16: Renown level 34; Week of February 23: Renown level 36; Week of March 2: Renown level 38; Week of March 9: Renown level 40. The Covenant story's new portions will likely be unlocked at certain Renown levels (40+), so we expect the Pathfinder to be time-gated. How heavy the time-gating will be remains unknown for now.
      You can listen to the interview below. It starts at around 56:22.
