Zandalari Troll Embrace the Loa Racial & Shrines

Recommended Posts

Xx3Joqk.jpg

The Zandalari Troll racial ability Embrace of the Loa Embrace of the Loa requires the character to make an offering near a shrine within Dazar'alor to gain one of its passive effects. Talking to guards in Dazar'alor will mark the shrine location on the map and the effect can be reset every 5 days.

One of the Zandalari racials is really unique and requires player interaction. You're going to find 6 shrines in Dazar'alor and making an offering near a shrine will activate one passive effect for your character which can be changed every 5 days.

Embrace of the Loa Embrace of the Loa - Choose your Loa by making an offering at Loa Shrines around the world. Each Loa offers unique powers. Guards in Dazar'alor will tell you where Shrines can be found.

So basically Paku for any hybrid which depending on the uptime is something of a discounted dwarf/wrogen/Nelf racial, right?
I guess that's fine.
I mean rest is nice and could be interesting but since you go from Arenas to raid, to mythic, to BG  to expeditions and would potentially prefer different spec/loa everytime I guess the 5 day cooldown is bit of a letdown, the act of having to actually walk up to a shrine would be annoying enough on its own.

About the "offering" part, is there an actual offering? Will it require a farm of random loa related ingredients or is it just a misleading title?

Update: I don't think shrines have different visuals, it's just the spell, which can now be cast anywhere (possibly a bug). Thought they'd do, because I associated Bwonsamdi with the souls/shadowy animation first. It's also interesting to see all Zandalari Trolls start with Embrace of Paku Embrace of Paku as default.

When you're near a shrine, your Embrace the Loa racial icon will begin to glow and casting the spell will place it on a 5-day cooldown. Tried Bwonsamdi's shrine so far and there's an animation of the "offering" I guess. It's a combination of kneeling and a spell cast visual. I believe other shrines have different visuals, but there is no actual "offering" involved besides the kneel/animation and 3-sec cast. To answer your question, no you won't need to farm any mats to make the offering.

It's already an overpowered traits with a unique way of obtaning/changing it, which is a pleasant surprise, yet you somehow manage to complain about it. So it's a letdown that a trait that will put zandalari trolls ahead of most classes, will be slightly less OP? I guess I shouldn't even be surprised.

It all depends on the proc rate which we don't know yet. But if it's like most trinket I would surely go with the Gonk passive speed bonus for casual uses. It may not affect the sheer numbers you output, but it's not as useless as many think.

Cooldown is long so I guess most people playing them will just stay with the optimal one, never switching. Choosing racial is a pretty interesting idea, although I would like racials to become just a cosmetic thing.

I'm hoping they'll either add others of the living loa later, or add in special quests for it, as I will always be a follower of Jani, and being able to chose him as my loa would be perfect.

      Blizzard talk about the specifics of the Valor caps and how they will be accelerating them due to the systems late addition, with a 5000 cap to start, increasing by 750 each week. You also won't be able to hoard it, as a character can only hold 1500 at a time.
      Valor (source)
      As we’ve tested and iterated on the changes in patch 9.0.5, we’ve concluded that Valor for Mythic Keystone Dungeon gear would benefit from an immediate kickstart, so we’re adjusting the configuration of Valor caps. This currency is being added well into Shadowlands Season 1, so we want to pace it as though it’s been available for several weeks, giving players a large measure of gear catch-up capacity from the start.
      In 9.0.5, there will be a weekly Valor cap that increases by 750 Valor each week, and the cap will start at 5000 Valor earnable in the first week. In the second week of 9.0.5, the Valor cap will be 5750. In week 3, the Valor cap will be 6500, etc. There will be a cap of 1500 on how much Valor a character can hold at a time. As always, thank you for your testing and feedback.

      The Alliance Castle Nathria Mythic Hall of Fame is finally full, but it appears that a Chinese boosting guild has filled it with many Cutting Edge runs discovered by players through Warcraft Logs.
      The Alliance has filled the Hall of Fame 29 days after the Horde, but according to reports, a Chinese guild named Q728 has sold more than 50 Hall of Fame / Cutting Edge pilots this tier. The alleged boosting occurs in each tier, but it is super obvious this time around.
      Reddit user Drathos1337 provided us with two interesting Warcraft Logs links. The first one links to their rosters and contains hundreds of characters with oddly similar performance on the final bosses after not performing that well on early ones, which hints at pilots. The second link contains their calendar, where you can view the individual runs.
      Many players are calling for a complete overhaul of the Hall of Fame system due to the boosts and Alliance taking a long time to fill it.

      We've seen plenty of WoW recreations in other games, from Minecraft, the Sims and so on, but this is a pretty new one as a part of Stormwind has been made in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater!
      While the details aren't exactly high, the architecture seems to be all there, but more importantly it looks to be a pretty solid skate park, with plenty of places to grind, wheelie and other skating terms I definitely know and didn't google like like ollie, boardslide and darkslide. The music isn't half bad either!
      This particular map is only available on the PS4, however, but it's still damn cool to just look at.

      It seems there's a much easier way to handle Devos, the final boss of the Spires of Ascension, as many players have been using this extremely powerful cheese/creative use of game mechanics/exploit to speed things up and make the encounter trivial.
      As spotted by the WoW Highlights Youtube channel, the method actually kind of breaks the boss, as Devos does none of her mechanics after the cheese, and it's pretty easy to pull off too. While this seems like an extremely obvious exploit, it's interesting to know that something very similar happened back in King's Rest, where you could do the same thing to Mchimba the Embalmer, the second boss, and Blizzard actually allowed that, even in the MDI, as Ellesmere points out and explains this new Spires method:

      You can see the results of the method here, as the boss just does nothing after the first spear throw interrupts her:

      And here are two more examples, where we can actually see the method being done directly (in the first two examples):
      This particular one seems like it will be getting fixed fast by Blizzard, however, as it is the final boss and the method basically removes the majority of the fight and makes it very trivial.

      Here we are in Nathria week 12 where there's still a lot of movement, with Retribution and Arcane jumping unexpectedly, heading into the upper reaches of the rankings. Frost has gone back down after its surge,sticking to the middle of the pack in the higher percentiles, as Balance, Affliction and Fire remain at their top 3 spots.

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.

      Retribution Paladin by Urthearso

      And here's a look at Heroic this week as well, where things really don't change much week-to-week, but it's still a nice comparison to the higher performing Mythic players.
