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!

“Thought to be lost in a massive explosion, the smartest of engineers were able to rebuild Feathers into a magnificent mechanical creation.”

      It's time for Cataclysm Timewalking this week and players level 86 and above are eligible to enter the Firelands Timewalking raid for the very first time.
      Firelands, the new Timewalking raid, has been added to the game in Patch 8.2.5, and this week, it's the first time players can enter it and defeat the seven bosses for loot.
      You can find item level 395 loot in Timewalking dungeons and item level 415 loot dropping in the new raid. Completing 5 Timewalking dungeons for the weekly quest rewards Cache of Palace Treasures, a chest with one piece of gear from Normal difficulty The Eternal Palace.
      Don't forget that Reins of the Infinite Timereaver has a chance to drop from any Timewalking dungeon boss as Personal Loot and save up your Timewarped Badges for expensive mounts like Beastlord's Irontusk, Beastlord's Warwolf, Bridle of the Ironbound Wraithcharger, Yu'lei, Daughter of Jade, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Gather your staunchest allies and head into the Firelands raid dungeon to take on the elemental lord Ragnaros and his cohorts—and take on six dungeons from Deathwing’s era— during Cataclysm Timewalking, running December 10–17.
      The Firelands is the molten domain forged by the titans to house Ragnaros and his wayward minions. Following Deathwing’s emergence into Azeroth, Ragnaros and his servants surged onto the slopes of Mount Hyjal before being driven back by the sacred mountain’s valiant defenders. Now Ragnaros is rallying his loyalists to defend the Firelands from Azeroth’s champions.
      When: The Firelands raid is available throughout the Cataclysm Timewalking event.
      Difficulty: The difficulty is set to Normal and, like any Normal level raid, will not be available through Raid Finder.
      Minimum Level: Players level 86 and above are eligible to participate.
      Bosses: (7) Beth’tilac, Lord Rhyolith, Alysrazor, Shannox, Baleroc, the Gatekeeper, Majordomo Staghelm, Ragnaros
      During Cataclysm Timewalking, you can assemble a raid group of between 1 and 30 players to step into the molten domain of Ragnaros. Don’t have a regular group? The Group Finder (I) can help. Create your own group in the Premade Groups section or search for like-minded adventurers.
      DUNGEONS IN CATACLYSM TIMEWALKING
      Grim Batol
      Don’t be fooled by Grim Batol’s humble exterior; many of this mountain fortress’s desecrated chambers are buried deep in the Twilight Highlands. Once the stronghold of the Wildhammer dwarves, and later seized by orcs as a prison for Alexstrasza, the city is now in the clutches of the Twilight’s Hammer cult.
      The Stonecore
      Within the Temple of Earth, locked in the heart of Deepholm, lies the Stonecore. It was inside these caverns that the Twilight’s Hammer toiled over Deathwing, hammering elementium plates to the Dragon Aspect’s body in an attempt to hold his tormented form together. With his renewal complete, Deathwing ascended into Azeroth, shattering the World Pillar and destabilizing the region of Deepholm.
      Lost City of theTol’vir
      The Lost City of the Tol’vir is the stronghold of the Neferset, a faction of the cat-like tol’vir who swore fealty to Deathwing in exchange for a cure to the curse of flesh, which had turned their rocky hides to soft skin. With the affliction expunged, the tol’vir have rebelled against the benefactor, although they remain irrevocably twisted and hostile due to the dark pact they made.
      The Vortex Pinnacle
      The Vortex Pinnacle exists within the elemental plane of Skywall. Its elegant structures, crowned with bronze and gold, sit atop platforms bridged by pure air. Yet behind its exterior beauty, the pinnacle harbors Neferset tol’vir, as well as Al’Akir the Windlord’s merciless elemental legions. As long as the barrier between Skywall and Azeroth remains open, terror will rain down on Uldum from the skies.
      Throne of the Tides
      Deep within the Abyssal Maw’s fathomless expanses lies the Throne of the Tides. From here, the great elemental lord Neptulon the Tidehunter has surveyed and protected his aquatic domain for ages. He now faces his greatest challenge as a force of serpentine naga and malefic faceless ones threaten to depose him, leaving his realm and its secrets ripe for the plundering.
      End Time
      One of an infinite number of potential outcomes, this timeway depicts the desolate future of Azeroth should Deathwing fail to be stopped. Nozdormu has identified a powerful anomaly that exists in this moment and bars access to the past—and hope of retrieving the Demon Soul. The powerful creature from out of time lives alone amidst the time-twisted echoes of the past.
      JUST THE FACTS
      Your character and items will be scaled down to a power level fitting for the challenge at hand, but bosses will yield loot appropriate for your regular level. Timewalking dungeons also have a chance to drop items that usually drop when you run them on Heroic, and you’ll earn reputation with a faction that is interested in the dungeon. For example, when you Timewalk through The Stonecore, Slabhide could drop the Reins of the Vitreous Stone Drake mount for you.
      Look for the following all week long:
      Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar and Chronicler Toopa in Boralus have a quest for you. You can also start the quest from within the Adventure Guide (Shift- J).
      Quest Requirement: Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons.
      Rewards: Artifact Power and one loot box containing a piece of gear from Normal difficulty The Eternal Palace.
      EVERY WEEK
      The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.

      The remasters and upscales keep on coming, as we have the Burning Crusade's intro cinematic in up to 8K resolution now!
      While BC is my favorite expansion ever, I was never a fan of the cinematic, as it's just a collection of various clips that don't have much of anything to do with Illidan's narration, until the very end. Obviously the two new races deserved screen time, but we didn't even get to see the Dranei's ship(s) in there, and then it's straight on to random battle clips. It obviously takes its cue from the Vanilla cinematic, as far as the clips go, but where it worked for Vanilla, which was simply setting the stage for the world itself, it falls a little flat here. But at least it does end on a high note, with the green horned one making a proper appearance.

      We have more Ivan Kuzkin goodness for you today, as he's put together a highlight reel of his 2019 Arena cinematic footage!
      We'll also be taking a look at his previous PvP videos, including a really old one from 4 years ago which is particularly impressive (and longer). Here's "The Rhythm of Chaos":
      And here's two earlier video trailers for the 2019 spring and fall seasons:
       
      Impressive stuff as always. Which cinematic would you wish IKedit would remaster next? Or should he go back to his earlier class series or other original machinimas?

      Even though the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur is going away in Shadowlands, Blizzard has no intent to remove the Auction House vendor from this mount and they removed the Mystic Birdhat's Reforging from the Grand Expedition Yak only because Reforging was removed from the game.
      Mighty Caravan Brutosaur will be limited to the Black Market Auction House in Shadowlands and Blizzard today dispelled rumors about the removal of the AH vendor from the mount.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Trying to figure out where these people keep getting this idea that the AH vendor is being removed from the mount because that has been said nowhere and yet people are acting like this is common knowledge.
      We want to be perfectly clear on this – we do not intend to remove the AH vendor from this mount, especially when some players put in a great deal of effort to acquire this mount specifically for that functionality. Of course, we remember that we removed the Mystic Birdhat’s Reforging from the Reins of the Grand Expedition Yak, but that was because we removed Reforging from the game.
      The Mighty Caravan Brutosaur is something that fundamentally alters players’ flow around the world, and it’s a unique convenience, but it’s certainly not essential. We’ve seen how luxury mounts like the Reins of the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth started out as something special and rare: a repair vendor wherever you are! They were originally ultra-exclusive and mostly purchased by guild banks for convenient raid use, but then became increasingly commonplace due to gold inflation over time.
      We think that a moderate amount of gold inflation is healthy. It ensures that new or returning players can catch up and participate in server economies without having to put in a herculean effort to avoid being priced out of essential goods. In this case, we want to ensure that in the long run, years from now, we don’t find ourselves looking around and seeing AH mounts that are as common as repair mounts are today.
