Kul Tiran & Zandalari Troll Racials

Recommended Posts

wkXwtgF.jpg

Patch 8.1.5 is now available for testing on PTR and first, we're looking at Kul Tiran and Zandalari Troll racials that are have been added to the game.

With a 25% heal per second (Regeneratin' Regeneratin') and two other active abilities, Zandalari Trolls have far better racials than Kul Tirans right now, although we assume Regeneratin' Regeneratin' might get nerfed in future 8.1.5 builds.

Here are the new Allied Races racials as of Patch 8.1.5 Build 28938:

Kul Tiran Human Racials

  • Haymaker Haymaker - Wind up, then unleash your might upon your foe, dealing 66 Physical damage, stunning for 3 sec sec, and knocking them back substantially. (6 yd range, 1 sec cast, 2.5 min cooldown)
  • Brush It Off Brush It Off - Increases Versatility by 1%. When you take damage, heal for 2% of that amount over 4 sec.
  • Child of the Sea Child of the Sea - Hold your breath for 50% longer and swim 10% faster.
  • Jack of All Trades Jack of All Trades - Increases all Tradeskills by 5.
  • Rime of the Ancient Mariner Rime of the Ancient Mariner - Reduces Frost and Nature damage taken by 1%.

Zandalari Troll Racials

  • Embrace of the Loa Embrace of the Loa - Choose your Loa to gain a powerful effect. Implementation of the racial is not yet finalized and choosing an "aura" has a cooldown of 25 days on PTR:
    • Embrace of Akunda Embrace of Akunda - Your healing abilities have a chance to heal their target for [ Greater of {400% of Spell Power} or {400% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] (Instant, 2 procs per minute)
    • Embrace of Bwonsamdi Embrace of Bwonsamdi - Your damaging abilities have a chance to deal [ Greater of {66% of Spell Power} or {66% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Shadow damage and heal you for 100% of the damage done. (Instant, 3 procs per minute)
    • Embrace of Gonk Embrace of Gonk - Increase movement speed by 5%. (Instant)
    • Embrace of Kimbul Embrace of Kimbul - Your damaging abilities have a chance to cause the target to bleed for [ Greater of {66% of Spell Power} or {66% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} * 3 ] over 6 sec. This effect stacks up to 3 times. (Instant, 2 procs per minute)
    • Embrace of Krag'wa Embrace of Krag'wa - Taking damage has a chance to grant you [ Greater of {300% of Spell Power} or {300% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] additional Health and [ Greater of {50% of Spell Power} or {50% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Armor. (Instant, 1 proc per minute)

I was already hyped to play Kul Tiran Humans, but this made me even more excited.

But as I'm not surprised, the Zandalari has OP racials, typical.

4 sec. channel for "Regeneratin'" makes it rather useless in combat, when they can be interrupted, knocked back or stunned. Interesting how often "Brush it off" is going to trigger, might be either pretty good or useless. Zandalari seems pretty strong with how they can switch one of their racials, no other races had anything like this so far.

Zandalari are also gonna be Paladins. So it's gonna be Bubble + free Lay On Hands every time you fight one, As if paladins weren't annoying enough

Good point, didn't think about specific class. If it works inside of the bubble, good luck with trying to solo kill a paladin (even worse in prot spec, since it scales with % hp, enemy player might as well go to sleep while lone dps is trying to kill him). 😵

Then cast Loa's blessing on himself, snap fingers and erase that lone monk from the existense.

There really isnt any lore for the Kul Tiran paladin.  They worship the sea.

I can totally see where bliz comes from here.

Kul Tirans are more animistic and druidic in their beliefs, while priests still exist there (mostly related to Tidesages), there is no paladin order. Similar case with Gilneas, which is more druidic, what they call "the old ways" and their relative isolation, likely not a good place for Silver Hand either. Also, Kul Tiras was founded by sailors from Gilneas.

Zandalari Brew Master Monk. Just... Wow... Ring, channel, full heal. Or Prot Paladin with their bubble/taunt talent, channel. Or any DPS that can stand out and do it.

Frankly I'll be absolutely amazed if it makes it to live like this. I'm not one to buy into the "OP Racials" Alliance salt but here? They'd have a point.

      As usual it didn't take long for the Wowsecrets discord to come up with a solution to one of the game's mysteries. And while this particular one wasn't that complex, it's still impressive how fast they got it done. Fabious , the underwater mount from Nazjatar appears to be a very vain seahorse and requires a lot of attention. Luckily, Zenkass/Kassidi of Proudmoore US figured out that what he really wants is his picture taken with the player and he'll join them in their quest!
      To obtain this mount, you simply go to Bloodfin Village in Nazjatar (around 25,29), hope he's there and use your S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera MkII on him. If you do find him you should be quick about it, as once he spawns he runs around for 2 minutes and then is gone again. Luckily though, anyone that's there while he's moving around can get the mount in this manner, so it's not limited to 1 player per spawn.
      Thanks to Vyndoriesh over on r/WoW for the explanation!
       
      "He emerges from the water, fins swaying lazily in the breeze, sun-kissed scales glittering. He is... Fabious."

      We have three short blue posts today covering a recently fixed bug from the PTR regarding a quest reward item level getting reduced, a second clarifying how the ranks for the new essence system work and a third on the mobile app getting updated as we speak.

      First off, it seems an early Nazjatar quest reward weapon has had it's item level drastically reduced from the PTR version (415 to 370), as the old version was bugged and had an unintentionally high one:
      Quest Reward (source)
      Hello.
      I can confirm that there was a bug in the PTR that was causing this reward to generate at an unintentionally high item level, and the bug was finally fixed just before the content update went live.
      So you’re seeing the intended power of the reward, and it should be consistent with other rewards that come from similar activities.
      Secondly, there's a tweet clarifying the requirements for higher rank essences:
      And finally, the mobile app isn't functioning for some players as it's currently being updated and should pop up at slightly different times for different users:
      Mobile App (source)
      There is an update to the app that came today with Rise of Azshara/8.2. It may take a while for the update to propagate out but we have confirmed that people are receiving it. Keep an eye out for updates on your device and you will be able to use the app again soon.
      Thanks all!
