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!

      We're looking at the final Mythic+ Tier List of the Shadowlands expansion.
      Dragonflight will be released in two days' time with completely new dungeons, and we thought now would be a good time to look at the final Mythic+ Tier List of Shadowlands.
      DISCLAIMER
      The following post is based on statistics provided by Subcreation, a website that gathers various Mythic+ data from live servers. Please note that the tier list is biased toward the top end because it only looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix and ignores keys below +16 and untimed runs.
      As a result, the data presented in this article will always be different from the Mythic Tier Lists maintained by Petko.
      Data Reliability
      The data used in the post comes from Subcreation, a site maintained by Alcaras. Subcreation provides statistical analysis of Mythic+ dungeons, raids, and PvP in Shadowlands, and the data is provided via the Warcraft Logs API and Raider.io. If you'd like to support Subcreation, you can check out their Patreon.
      How the Data is Calculated
      The site looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix across all regions and examines their raider.io scores. For each dungeon and specialization, the site takes the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval of the top 100 runs for each specialization. The site then averages these lower bounds, one per dungeon, to get an overall average lower bound for each spec, which is finally used to create the tier list.
      The site takes the lower bounds of the 95% confidence interval calculated and then clusters them into 6 buckets using the Ckmeans algorithm. You can find more information by reading the site's FAQ.
      Tanks, Healers, Melee, and Ranged are all on the same scale. They're just shown separately for easier comparison across roles.
      Mythic+ Tier List for Dragonflight Pre-Patch Phase 2 Week 2
      The specs are ranked based on their lb_ci which stands for the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval. If a certain tier is missing, it's not occupied by any specialization.
      The following tier list is for this week's affixes: Tyrannical, Raging, Volcanic, and Shrouded.
      Tank Tier List
      Based on 3,223 runs, ranging in difficulty from +16 to +32.

      Healer Tier List
      Based on 3,222 runs, ranging in difficulty from +16 to +32.

      The pre-patch period always brings plenty of bugs with it, but it seems the dignity of Worgen has suffered in particular this time around, as their gear sets collection screen isn't looking so hot. There's more than a couple of bugs happening here, related to the Worgen's dual nature, but all of them are equally horrifying and hilarious.
      Ok, so I lied about ALL of them looking both horrifying and hilarious, as this next one definitely leans in to one of those a lot more than the other...
      And finally, while this one is neither Worgen nor gear set-related, I had to add it because, well, I mean I had to, right?

      The duos are at it again as HeroicSolo and Durendil are 2-manning all sorts of content in the Dragonflight pre-patch! Today we have three Castle Nathria bosses and Vigilant Guardian from the Sepulcher on Normal mode, as well as a +15 in time Tazavesh run!
      Let's start with the +15, with the Vengeance DH and Beast Mastery Hunter managing to get Streets of Wonder done with 9 minutes to spare!
      Then we have the raids, as they take on the early bosses in Nathria and the Sepulcher, with some added commentary below the videos as well:
       
      Pretty hard fight both in terms of survival and DPS. The hardest mechanics were:
      1) Pneumathic Impact was very painful at 4+ stacks, so I used Last Resort and Feed the Demon talents, aswell as Aegis trinket to survive 4+ stacks. @DurendilLeHunt had used engineery CR to ressurect me on p2 after Pneumathic Impact oneshot, so I could tank the whole phase.
      2) Fated barrier affix – since we're only 2 players, and one of them is not guardian druid (*hehe*), it was very hard part too. So I used The Hunt, Unnatural Malice and Soul Furnace talents to squeeze maximum burst damage into barriers. I've even used Fiery Brand a couple times not as defensive CD, but as offensive CD to zerg barrier ASAP.
      3) Phase 3 was very painful for @DurendilLeHunt , aswell as Exposed Core cast on P1. So I've used Darkness + Pitch Black talents to help him to survive that damage.
      4) Bringing orbs to the gates on P1 was high prio task just to avoid additional tons of adds and start P2 as fast as we can. And running with orb (when we had a whole crowd of adds + active emitter) wasn't trivial for 2 players situation, so I've used both charges of Infernal Strike to bring orbs ASAP.
       
       
      Huntsman Altimore was very hard challenge because of +100% damage stacking buff on boss and also we had to kill spirits properly.
      Xy'mox was pretty hard, just long fight with some survival and movement challenge. Kiting ghosts multiple times per fight as tank was very fun ?
      @DurendilLeHunt 's surviving and engineering CR usage skills are incredible ?

      The Professions overhaul in Dragonflight introduced multiple secondary crafting and gathering stats, but what exactly do they mean and why are they relevant? Find out more about deftness, inspiration, multicraft, resourcefulness, finesse, and more, in our latest post.
      Secondary Crafting Stats
      Crafting Speed
      The stat increases your crafting speed by x%. Ideal for those who create tons of items to sell them in the Auction House. Inspiration
      You craft items at various quality in Dragonflight and Inspiration increases your chance to become inspired and craft an item at a higher quality than your current crafting skill would allow. For those with maxed out crafting skill, the crafted item will have better stats. Multicraft
      Increases your chance to craft additional items by a percentage. When you craft an item, you will have an x% chance to create an additional copy of that item. This only works for stackable items. Resourcefulness
      Decreases material costs of an item by a percentage. Every item has fixed crafting requirements and Resourcefulness will decrease the amount of reagents by x%. Secondary Gathering Stats
      Gathering stats will only affect Herbalism, Mining, and Skinning.
      Deftness
      Increases gathering speed by x%, which means you will mine/collect herbs/skin faster. Finesse
      Gives you a x% chance to find additional herbs/ore/leather. Perception
      Increases your chance to find rare herbs/ores/leather by a x%.

      Here's a valuable tip for all Transmog collectors! Don't forget to change the vendor filter from your class to "All" to see weapons hidden from your character.
      By default, the gear vendors filter shows you only gear for your class. However, some weapons remain hidden even when your class can equip them. Therefore, it's important to change the filter options to "All."
      One item example is Galerider Shank dagger from the pre-patch event gear vendors, which is hidden from cloth casters by default because it has Agility. However, cloth casters can equip daggers and thus collect the appearance.
      Another example is the Stormbender Saber Intellect sword which cannot be seen by Death Knights, Hunters, Rogues, and Warriors, but changing the vendor filter to "All" lets them buy it.
      The tip has been brought up by Reddit user acctg.
