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.

      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!

      Our preview of Patch 8.3 continues with a first look at racial abilities of the upcoming Allied Races.
      Mechagnome Racials
      Mechagnomes have two active abilities available at level 24. The first one allows you to summon clones to distract enemies and the second one allows you to open locked chests and doors that require Lockpicking.
      Hyper Organic Light Originator - Summon Organic Light duplicates to distract your foes. (Instant, 3 min cooldown) Skeleton Pinkie - Allows opening of locked chests and doors that require a skill level of up to 600. (1.5 min cooldown) As a Mechagnome, your limbs work as a Blacksmithing Anvil, Cooking Fire, and Mining Forge. You have a self-heal at your disposal, which heals you for a fifth of your total health whenever you fall below 20% health. The final passive racial passive gradually increases your primary stat (Int/Str/Agi) by 50 every 5 seconds, up to a maximum of 400 when fighting the same target.
      The following racial passives are available to Mechagnomes:
      Combat Analysis - You gather and analyze combat data every 5 sec, increasing your primary stat by 50, stacking up to 8 times. The data decays while out of combat. Mastercraft - You function as a personal Blacksmithing Anvil, Cooking Fire, and Mining Forge. In addition, your limbs include every profession tool. [NYI] Re-Arm - When you fall below 20% health, heal for 20% of your maximum health. This effect cannot occur more than once every 2.5 min. Languages - Common, Gnomish. Vulpera Racials
      Active abilities embrace the scavenger/camping fantasy of the Vulpera. You can set up a camp and return back on a 1-hour cooldown. Next, you have a bag of tricks, used to heal your allies or deal damage to enemies.
      Bag of Tricks - Pull your chosen trick from the bag and use it on target enemy or ally. Enemies take 14 damage, while allies are healed for 28. (Instant, 1.5 min cooldown) Rummage Your Bag - Change the contents of your Bag of Tricks. Now where did you put that...? [NYI] (5 sec cast, 5 min cooldown) Make Camp - Make a camp at this location. Can only be used outdoors. (5 sec cast) The racial creates a camp with fire, a tent and an explosive backpack at your location. You can use Return to Camp as your secondary Hearthstone on a 60-minute cooldown to return back. The camp is visible for others for five minutes and then disappears.

      Return to Camp - Return to your camp. (10 sec cast, 60 min cooldown) When used, there's a short cutscene with a caravan transporting you back to your camp starts playing.

      Passive abilities include a Fire damage reduction by 1%, 5% damage reduction when you first take an enemy hit, and you can find additional bags of goods whenever you kill a humanoid.
      The following racial passives are available to the Vulpera:
      Fire Resistance - Reduces Fire damage taken by 1%. Nose For Trouble - When you first take damage from an enemy, reduce that damage by 5% of your maximum health. Vulpera Survival Kit - You have a chance to find an additional satchel of goods when you kill a humanoid. Languages - Orcish, Vulpera. Other Patch 8.3 Content:

      Ny'alotha Allseer is a N'Zoth-themed mount added to the game in Patch 8.3. It is rewarded from a quest and could very well be the end-of-expansion reward for everyone, who defeats N'Zoth on Heroic difficulty before the next expansion, similar to Legion's Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal.
