Patch 8.1.5 Splash Screen

Highlights

  • New splash screen was added.
  • Crucible of Storms loot item level has been increased as follows:
    • Raid Finder: 375-380
    • Normal Difficulty: 390-395
    • Heroic Difficulty: 405-410
    • Mythic Difficulty: 420-425
  • Following the introduction of Stormwind/Orgrimmar Portal Rooms in Patch 8.1.5, all portals from the Drag have been removed. Not sure if it's a bug or intended.

  • You must use the portal to Azsuna (Illidari Stand) and fly to Dalaran (Broken Isles). The Dalaran Portal Room no longer contains any portals as well. The biggest downside is the missing Caverns of Time portal.

      Rogues received the rest of their Legendary powers on the Beta this week. Missing from the previous week were Subtlety and Outlaw powers.
      Note that some of the tooltips are broken, but they should still give you a good idea of what to expect when it comes to Rogue Legendary powers.
      All Specializations
      Tiny Toxic Blades - Shiv causes your Poisons and Bleeds on the target to spread to a nearby enemy. Mark of the Master Assassin - While Stealth is active and for 5 sec after breaking Stealth, your Critical Strike chance is increased by 100%. Invigorating Shadowdust - Vanish reduces the remaining cooldown of your other abilities by 0 sec. Essence of Bloodfang - Your Combo Point generators have a chance to infect the target with Bloodfang, causing [ 37.8% of Attack Power ] Bleed damage over 6 sec, and healing the Rogue for [ 6.3% of Attack Power ] each time it deals damage. Assassination
      Doomblade - Mutilate deals an additional 20% Bleed damage over 3 seconds. Envenom damage increased by 5% for each Bleed you have on the target. Dustwalker's Patch - The remaining cooldown on Vendetta is reduced by 1 sec for every 65 Energy you expend. Zoldyck Insignia - Your Poisons and Bleeds deal 30% increased damage to targets below 30% health. *NEW* Dashing Scoundrel - Envenom also increases the critical strike chance of your poisons by 30%, and their critical strikes generate 2 Energy. Subtlety
      *NEW* Akaari's Soul Fragment - After using Shadowstrike or Cheap Shot, your target suffers a Shadowstrike from the shadows 2 sec later, at 100% effectiveness. *NEW* Deathly Shadows - Vanish grants 5 combo points and increases all damage dealt by 15% for 10 sec. *NEW* Finality - Eviscerate, Rupture, and Shadow Vault increase the damage of your next use of the finishing move by 20%. *NEW* The Rotten - For 2 sec after activating Symbols of Death, your Shadowstrike and Backstab generate 4 additional combo points. Outlaw
      *NEW* Celerity - You have a chance while Slice and Dice is active to gain the Adrenaline Rush effect for 3 sec. *NEW* Concealed Blunderbuss - When Saber Slash strikes an additional time, there is a 33% chance that your next Pistol Shot will fire 3 additional times. *NEW* Guile Charm - Take advantage of the natural ebb and flow of combat, causing your Sinister Strike to gradually increase your damage dealt by up to 0%. This maximum effect will last for 0 before fading and beginning the cycle anew. Greenskin's Wickers - Between the Eyes has a 20% chance per Combo Point to increase the damage of your next Pistol Shot by 200%. All Legendary Powers Coming in Shadowlands

      Beta Build 35432 Dev Notes: August 5th Great Vault Requirement Changes: Beta Build 35432 Regalia of the Fabled Adventurers Heirloom Set in Shadowlands Hunters Can Tame Cloud Serpents and Undead Beasts in Shadowlands Wands Can Be Transmogrified Into Other Weapon Types in Shadowlands Blizzard Adds Reckful as Rogue Trainer in Shadowlands Blizzard Retiring Old Experience Potions in Shadowlands
    • By Stan
      Blizzard will be retiring potions that increase your Experience gains in Shadowlands except for the BfA potion, so it's important to get rid of them or use them before the new expansion hits.
      Elixir of Ancient Knowledge, Elixir of the Rapid Mind, and Excess Potion of Accelerated Learning will become gray items and unusable in Shadowlands, so it is best to use or sell them on the Auction House before Shadowlands.
      The only exception to the rule is Draught of Ten Lands added in Battle for Azeroth that will retain its 10% increase in Experience gains up until level 50.

    • By Stan
      Following the tragic passing of Reckful, Blizzard added a Rogue Trainer named after him to the Cathedral of Light in Stormwind, where thousands of players paid tribute to the player.
      In the latest Beta Build 35432, Blizzard paid tribute to Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer to the Cathedral of Light in Stormwind named after him.

    • By Stan
      Reddit user leothar noticed on the Beta that you transmogrify wands into other one-hand weapon types as of the latest Beta Build 35432.
      In Shadowlands, players will be able to transmogrify each shoulder separately. Another exciting change discovered on the Beta is that you can transmogrify wands into other one-handed weapons,
      So as a Mage, you will be able to transmog wands into one-handed swords and daggers.
      As a Priest, you can transmog wants into one-handed maces, and daggers (as seen in the image below).

      Beta Build 35432 Dev Notes: August 5th Great Vault Requirement Changes: Beta Build 35432 Regalia of the Fabled Adventurers Heirloom Set in Shadowlands Hunters Can Tame Cloud Serpents and Undead Beasts in Shadowlands
    • By Stan
      Among other notable items added in Beta Build 35432, we found two that suggest Hunters will be able to tame Cloud Serpents and Undead Beasts in Shadowlands.
      How to School Your Serpent requires Exalted with the Order of the Cloud Serpent, the Mists of Pandaria faction, which can be easily farmed during Mists Timewalking if you haven't reached the required reputation standing yet and the item teaches you how to tame Cloud Serpents.
      "A lighthearted and picture-filled book on training cloud serpents as pets. A favorite bedtime book of Pandaren children." Simple Tome of Bone-Binding is also new, and we think it is tied to the Necrolord Covenant in Maldraxxus, since necromancy is their area of expertise. It teaches you how to tame Undead Beasts.
      "A tome written by members of the House of Rituals, in large letters and using simple words, to teach the House of the Chosen members how to bind undead beasts to them. There are pictures." The Hunter stable size has been increased to 205 Slots in Shadowlands, so giving Hunters two new pet families to tame is a welcome addition.
