While you’ve been out playing pirate on the shores of Zuldazar and dancing through the fields of Drustvar picking flowers, the Brawler’s Guild has been hard at work training up their fighters and finding new contenders for you to face. But are you going to be ready to take them on after all of that downtime you’ve had vacationing in the islands?

Location: Brawl’gar Arena in Orgrimmar or Bizmo’s Brawlpub in the Deeprun Tram
Entry Requirements: Level 120 and either a Blood-Soaked Invitation or Brawler’s Pass

Rising up the Ranks

When you accept your invitation to brawl, you’ll find that the guild has shaken up their rosters a bit. In the arena, you’ll face foes both new and old as you battle to reach the prestigious Rank 8.

MEET THE NEWEST BRAWLERS

There are many new faces just waiting to pit their skills against yours within the Brawlers’ Guild including:

  • Farmer Xiang-Su
  • Hyper Mega-Mecha Seagull x9000
  • Mama Stormstout
  • Ouroboros
  • Phillip Carter Tracey
  • Robe-Robber Robert
  • Spymaster
  • Thog Hammerspace
  • Tidemistress Shellbreaker

You’ve Got a Mystery to Solve

There’s more going on at the Brawler’s Guild than electrifying fights between competitors in their prime. A mystery is afoot, and after you’ve shown a bit of prowess in the arena, you’ll be tapped to help solve it. You’ll need to claw and carve your way to the truth using your keen intellect, astute powers of observation, and—of course—by punching a few things along the way.

The fate of the Brawler’s Guild lies with you!

I F****** hate the Rumble cards. Get rid of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The queue times are far worse ?. It's single-player content and you still need to wait in line for your turn. Spectating should be optional ?. Thoughts?

I don't mind *some* Q times, it's cool to watch other players, either to help them or to learn from them.  But the Qs got loooooong.  They supposedly capped the number of participants in each shard to 5, but I definitely had 8 or more sometimes.  And 5 is too many.  3 would be a good max.

I agree with the terrible queue times, but the rumble cards pissed me off to no end. It never gave me credit for killing the boss. I still had to complete it solo, so it was a waste of time. Most of the time, 3 people just stand there or get themselves killed right away, so you try completing it, only to have wasted the 2 minute timer and lose all your buffs from death. I think it should just go away.

      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.
      Arcane Mage by Dutchmagoz
      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.
