Recommended Posts

Feathers is a new battle pet that you can get by completing a short questline in Patch 8.1.5 that takes place in Tanaris.

Mechanical Feather Mechanical Feather was added in Patch 8.1 and we also datamined a matching Mechanical Parrot mount in Patch 8.1 Build 28294 that's still not available to this day, maybe it's being saved for Mechagon and Patch 8.2?

Feathers Questline

A new questline was added in Patch 8.1.5 that rewards a battle pet called Feathers. Both factions will be able to get the pet. We completed the questline on the Horde side, where Jastor Gallywix sends you to kill a Goblin located in Tanaris.

Whatever Happened to Grizzek Fizzwrench?

Gallywix wants you to locate and kill Grizzek Fizzwrench in Tanaris.

Quote

When this whole Azerite mess began I had a goblin named Grizzek Fizzwrench do some research for me. He was bad for business and had to be removed from the picture. I thought it was a done deal, only now I'm hearing maybe he's not so dead. I need you to hunt this guy down and see what happened. If he's alive, eliminate him and i'll add the standard mercenary fee to your reward.

Gazlowe appears right after you leave the ship and tries to strike another deal with you.

Quote

Hey, PlayerName!

<Gazlowe's eyes look to either side as he motions you closer.>

I think we can make a deal here.

-> Yeah? What kind of deal?

Gallywix talked to you about Fizzwrench? Yeah, I thought so. Look, Grizzek didn't have a lick of sense when it came ot politics, but he was a good guy. Between you and me? We need goblins like him, pushin' the boundaries of engineering. So here's my counter offer. If you find Grizzek, tell him to keep his head down and tell Gallywix he's out of the picture. Do that and I'mm make sure you get paid twice as much. Sounds good?

-> You've got a deal.

Gallywix: Remember, I'll pay double!

After investigating Waterspring Field in Tanaris, you come across a Mechanical Parrot that's broken.

Quote

<You find the charred pieces of some mechanical contraption. A parrot maybe? It isn't Grizzek Fizzwrench, but it's evidence of his work. Perhaps there are more clues to be found in the area.>

Some Reassembly Required

Collect 100 Mechanical Parts Mechanical Parts from Venture Co. scavengers to fix Feathers.

Quote

<The word "feathers" has been etched onto the broken mechanical creature -- the sort of thing the person you are looking for might have created. Collecting the pieces and recreating the mechanical construct will surely give you a clue as to their fate..

The area is crawling with Venture Co. scavengers and goons. Their pockets are probably filled with mechanical bits you could use to fix Feathers.>

Re-Parrot

Now that Feathers is fixed, it's time to debug his recall program to trace Grizzek Fizzwrench.

Quote

<Though very damaged, and filled with insects, you can tell Feathers seems to have some sort of recall program.

Fixing the mechanical bird and following it back to the source may bring you to the person you seek.

You were able to put the thing back together. How hard could debugging and mechanical parrot be?>

When you begin debugging, Feathers will go haywire. You'll gain access to three abilities that need to be pressed in exact order, based on the text that appears on screen.

Quote

Input required! Hit Any Key! -> Hit Any Key Hit Any Key

System Overload! Clear cache! -> Clear Cache Clear Cache

Error 37! Error 37! Reboot System! -> Reboot System Reboot System

The debugging process should finish.

Quote

<Debugging Feathers involved actual bugs. Gross. But the mechanical creature seems to be moving better.>

Hello! Systems operating within normal parameters. Hello!

<Feathers looks at you, awaiting input.>

Return to the Nest

Quote

<You decide to activate the recall subroutine. Perhaps the parrot will lead you to the person you are looking for.>

Activate the recall subroutine to find Fizzwrench.

Quote

Feathers: Homing beacon activated. Searching for signal. Signal found. Activating protocol "Find Saffy". Signal degradation. Atmospheric disturbances detected. Attempting to compensate. Signal weak. Re-calibrating. Operation resumed. Within broadcast radius. Starting broadcast now. Hello, Saffy!

Sapphronetta Flivvers: Feathers! How are you-- Feathers! Cancel broadcast! Cancel--

Feathers: Order recognized. Broadcast canceled. Signal disrupted. Error 37. Compensating. Signal Re-established. Time to target, approximately twenty seconds. Hello, Saffy!

He's Dead, Jastor

Feathers will lead yu to Grizzek Fizzwrench and Saffy. Now, you're asked to tell Jastor Gallywix that he's long dead and you can keep the bird.

Quote

Hey, uh, so I got a good thing goin' on here, and I really don't want Gallywix to know I'm alive. I'll make you a deal. You spin some story about how you only found tiny pieces of me spread across Tanaris and that I am totally dead, and... And you can keep the bird.

Grizzek Fizzwrench: Hey, thanks for not blabbing to Gallywix for me. And uh, thank Gazlowe for me? I owe him one, so I'm gonna pay it with some advice for you to pass along. Never get involved in political engineering! Never! Tell him to run if he's gettin' too close!

Sapphronetta Fivvers: We should really be going. Gallywix's goons could find us at any moment!

Grizzek Fizzwrench: Right, right. We're all packed, pookie. Ready to go when you are.

Sapphronetta Fivvers: You take good care of Feathers, PlayerName. Remember, you never saw us!

Return to Zandalar Harbor and speak to Gallywix.

Quote

Hey! PLAYERNAME!

You take care of that bad investment, Grizzek Fizzwrench?

Don't spare any of the details! Come on, spill!

-> He's dead. Where's my payment?

-> He's nothing but a smear across the desert. A tiny smear. A series of microscopic bits spread across the sand. He's 100% dead. I got this really awful sunburn looking for all the pieces. And when I found them I blew them up again. Yep He's dead. Really, really dead.

Gallywix: That's what I like to hear! Nice doin' business with ya, PlayerName.

Now talk to Gazlowe to claim your pet!

      Blizzard have decided to scrap the initially planned button that would re-configure the pillars inside the Enigma Arena, and it will launch as it it right now on the 9.2.5 PTR, with a static configuration. 
      Engima Arena (Source)
      As we previously mentioned, our initial intention was to release the Enigma Crucible with a unique mechanic, a central button that allowed players to manipulate the pillar configuration throughout a match. During implementation, we found some concerns like pathing and line-of-sight issues that could have sporadically affected players and some of their class abilities. So to provide the best play experience and avoid potential frustrations, we have decided to go forward with the version that is currently available on the 9.2.5 PTR which has a single pillar configuration that remains locked throughout the match. We do not plan to pursue the initial version at this time.
      Thank you for your understanding and we’ll see you in the Arena.

      We're checking back in with Mythic+ and have a fresh old face back in the top 3, with two of the classic M+ specs setting up shop at the very top, and Destruction having a look in as well.
      Note: The logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
      These past 2 weeks were:

      Fortified, Spiteful, Necrotic
      Tyrannical, Inspiring, Quaking (and Encrypted)
      All Keys
      95th percentile
      While the very top remains the same as it's been for a LONG time, with Subtlety reigning over everyone, we see a big shift in No.2 with Fire returning to the top after a long absence, pushing Destruction out of the way. Survival drops 2 spots as the AoE nerf takes effect, while Windwalkers remain steady in 5th. The numbers drop off quite a bit after the top 5, and we see Frost Mage and Demonology switch spots, as well as Fury and Havoc rise up together and push Marksmanship down into the final top 10 slot. The bottom remains pretty much identical, with Rogues, Druids and Shamans clustering up together for warmth.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      Interestingly enough, Fire is actually doing worse than last time we checked in the generalist bracket, as it drops 1 spot down to 4, with Destruction taking its place in the top 3, as Subtlety and Survival stay on top. Windwalker moves up two and claims the final top 5 spot, pushing Marksmanship and Demonology down one, while the tail end of the top 10 remains the same.
      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      High Keys
      +15 Keys
      Old faithful, the +15 bracket is as solid as a rock and just as interesting, as you'd need a microscope to see the differences here. Within these microscopic changes, we see Survival remain on top as Windwalker takes 2nd from Subtlety, and Arcane actually moves up quite a bit and slips into the top 10.

      Mythic+15 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      +20 Keys
      Windwalkers are making some moves in the high keys, as they take 2nd from Destruction and knock Subtlety down to 4th. Fury is moving up for a change, after a long period of stagnation all over, taking 7th and replacing Demo, while Enhancement and Assassination make some serious moves up, as they round out the top 10 four spots higher than last time we checked.

      Although the vast majority of quests surrounding Calia Menethil are encrypted in Patch 9.2.5, there's one named "Eyes of the Wolf" which isn't. This post contains mild spoilers.
      "The Eyes of the Wolf" quest isn't currently encrypted on the PTR. The player must meet Calia Menethil in Brill and spy on the Forsaken because they're gathering in Tirisfal for an unknown purpose...
      Quest Objectives
      Meet Calia Menethil in Brill, Tirisfal Glades.
      Speak to Gilnean Greymage for a teleport. Quest Description
      An alarming rumor has reached me, thanks to our spies. The Forsaken are mustering in Tirisfal Glades. For what purpose, I do not know. Notably, Calia Menethil has gone there as well. We must know more of what they are up to, now that the accursed Banshee Queen no longer unites them. Go, don a disguise and see what you can discover. Observe everything. And if there is an opportunity to gain their trust and learn more, do as they ask. I eagerly await your report.
      We saw Calia Menethil beside other Horde leaders in the Shadowlands intro experience. Will Calia Menethil lead the Forsaken in Patch 9.2.5?

      The Forsaken story remains a mystery because Blizzard uses more sophisticated encryption techniques in Patch 9.2.5 that hide entire stories, maybe even an Allied Race.

      Blizzard made some changes to the new Season 4 affix in the latest Patch 9.2.5 build. In this post, we are recapping all the information available about Shrouded so far.
      The new Season 4 affix is no longer called Disguised. It was renamed to Shrouded and the placeholder description was updated to the following:
      Shrouded - Nathrezim infiltrators have disguised themselves among enemies throughout the dungeon. Cartel Ta will reward you handsomely for assisting in their capture. How Does the Season 4 Affix Work?
      At the beginning of each Mythic+ Dungeon, there is a bounty hunter NPC who offers you Critical Strike/Haste/Mastery/Versatility buffs for each dreadlords you help capture, stacking up to 20 times.
      Bounty: Critical Strike - Critical Strike increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Haste - Haste increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Mastery - Mastery increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Versatility - Versatility increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. After you make your choice, you will be granted a 2% buff to the secondary stat of your choice.
      Nathrezim Infiltrators
      Throughout the dungeons, some NPCs will have a purple aura and the Disguised debuff. These will transform into Nathrezim Infiltrators when you enter combat. Nathrezim Infiltrators replace regular trash mobs in dungeons, so this might directly affect Mythic routes.

      When the dreadlord is captured you will receive another +2% secondary stat increase (on top of what you had at the beginning, as this buff stacks up to 20. Shortly after the dreadlord is captured, you'll receive another buff which restores 6% health and mana every second for 3 seconds.
      Restoration - Restoring 6% health and mana every 1 sec. What Abilities do Nathrezim Infiltrators Use?
      Nathrezim Infiltrators will use 3 abilities. The first one is a frontal cone which reduces healing received for a short duration, the second one heals the dreadlord for a portion of the damage inflicted and the third one puts the player into a statis.
      Vampiric Claws - Strikes the target inflicting 50 Shadow damage and healing for [ 10,000% of E1 ]% of the damage dealt. (20 yd range, 3 sec cooldown, 1.5 sec cast)
      Carrion Swarm - Inflicts 35 Shadow damage to enemies in front of the dreadlord and reduces healing received by 25% for 10 sec. (100 yd range, 3 sec cooldown, 2.5 sec cast)
      Nightmare Cloud - Creates a wandering Nightmare Cloud for until cancelled. Coming into contact with a Nightmare Cloud afflicts players with [email protected] (3 sec cooldown, 2 sec cast)
      Nathrezim Infiltrators cannot be stunned or death-gripped. The spells are not interruptible.
