Patch 8.1.5 Build 29484: Highlights

Recommended Posts

41950-heirlooms-scale-to-level-120-in-pa

It appears Patch 8.1.5 testing nears completion and in the latest 8.1.5 build there are only minor spell changes, string updates, and no Class changes.

While Blizzard's still testing Crucible of Storms over the weekend, the last 8.1.5 builds have brought only small tweaks to the game and it seems the patch is good to hit live servers soon. The final Dazar'alor Raid Finder Wing opens next week and Crucible of Storms won't open for a while, so testing can commence on 8.1.5 PTR even after the patch goes live.

Check out our Patch 8.1.5 hub for more information about the patch.

Considering how much we've been strung along so far, I'm gonna call this a *Soon TM* from Blizzard, and just look forward to getting back to things in like, 3-7 weeks, when this patch finally gets a release date.

      According to player reports, the Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder is still required to fly in Kul Tiras and Zandalar on live servers.
      Battle for Azeroth is two expansions old with the launch of Dragonflight and when Shadowlands was released, Blizzard made Warlords of Draenor flying available to everyone with the Pathfinder still rewarding the mount.
      However, now that Dragonflight is live, this does not seem to be the case.
      The achievement still requires BfA flyting and the  Wonderwing 2.0 mount.

      Blizzard has posted an update on the Dragonflight performance issues, clarifying that operations and server engineering teams have been working around the clock to fix them since the expansion launched.
      (Source)
      Since the launch of Dragon Isles content, our live operations and server engineering teams have been working non-stop to address several unexpected performance issues. Some of these were fixed with realm restarts that took place earlier today in all regions, and other performance issues are still being worked on.
      This is a top priority, and we expect to deploy additional fixes over the next day.
      Thank you for your patience.

      Players have spotted three familiar faces in Ohn'ahran Plains on live servers!
      While the three NPCs are named "Unknown", they look like Malfurion, Tyrande, and Ysera.

      During Dragonflight testing, we've datamined some interesting dialogue between all three. You can read it below. It contains spoilers.
      We currently do not know when the questline will be enabled on live servers, but it appears to be encrypted for now.

      It's been a while since the WoW community was this much in agreement over a new piece of content, but Dragonflight seems to have brought an instant classic to the quest archives, with one of the simplest ones ever.
      There are dozens and dozens of reddit and forum posts talking about how much this one quest affected them and how good it was - and all it is is a dragon with a dwarf visage talking! And it's got the perfect name too: Stay a While.
      This small quest where you don't fight, explore or collect is one of my favourite quests in all of WoW. Dragonflight so far feels super refreshing and grounded. I came here to fly dragons not cry ;-; [SPOILER] I love these types of side quests... Please keep it coming! /cry I just got some dust in my eyes... from you know... the dragonriding... "Stay a While" one of the best quests That lonely Dwarf... I was not prepared! The Vritistraz “Quest”. There are many more posts about it, mostly crying-related as well.
      Not since the Runas the Shamed questline has the community been this much in awe of the story side of WoW, and it's a beautiful thing to see, especially since it's such a powerful way to show how important the actual world is to Warcraft, as the view itself is half the quest.
      Here's the full quest if you want to check it out, but if you're playing Dragonflight, you should really wait and get there yourself to experience it properly.

      File this one in the extreme irony category, as while many players were stuck on loading screens, waiting on boats and unable to even log in due to world servers being down while trying to play Dragonflight, this particular player just got ported directly to the Dragon Isles without even owning the expansion nor trying to get there!
      Nantener was just minding their own business in Durotar when all the server instability surrounding the zeppelins heading off to the Isles somehow ripped some sort of portal and deposited them somewhere in the Waking Shores.   The trip didn't take long, however, as they were ported back a while later.
      Did not used any exploit, got a disconnect while i was in durotar, when I logged back, I found myself in the dargon isles. Did not bought the expansion.
      Now i Ported back:

      While this is pretty hilarious, I'm sure the many players that were stuck waiting and unable to get to the content they did pay for wouldn't really see it that way, but at least most servers stabilized a few hours into the launch and everyone is enjoying the Isles properly now.
      Perhaps this is some sort of new marketing technique? ?
