Recommended Posts

Here's a bit of a weird one as it seems our hotbar swapping keybinds have been/will be reset with patch 8.1.5. We also got an official content overview for the patch, but it's all already been covered in the patch notes that have been out since yesterday.

New Raid: Crucible of Storms

A long-submerged evil stirs beneath the Shrine of the Storm. The whispers that drove Lord Stormsong to madness echo within the depths, a siren song of eldritch power. Those who listen and obey prepare dark rituals to carry out their master’s will. Whatever nightmarish schemes fuel their fantastical devotion, one thing is certain: they must be stopped.

Raid Unlock Schedule
April 16—Normal and Heroic Difficulties
April 23—Mythic and Raid Finder Difficulties


PvP Updates

New Epic Battleground

Brace yourself for the return of the cold bite of Wintergrasp where you’ll compete against the enemy faction in a massive 40-player Battleground. For the first week of this content update, Wintergrasp is featured as a Brawl. Thereafter, you’ll find Wintergrasp in the Epic Battleground selection in Group Finder (default hotkey: i).

Updated Battlegrounds

Step into two classic Battlegrounds—Arathi Basin and Warsong Gulch— and experience newly updated graphics with the same epic gameplay you know and love.

New Brawl: Comp Stomp

Head into Arathi Basin for a head-to-head battle against AI opponents. This new Brawl will be available March 19. Use the Group Finder tool (default hotkey: i) in the Player vs. Player tab to take part.


The War Campaign Continues

New chapters in the War Campaign for the Horde and Alliance take the story beyond the Battle of Dazar’alor as Sylvanas’ latest scheme causes Baine Bloodhoof to seek out Jaina Proudmoore, far from prying eyes.

War Campaign Mounts

Players who complete the War Campaign on both a Horde and an Alliance character will earn new achievement,Two Sides to Every Tale, and new mount reward:the Bloodflank Charger (Horde) and Ironclad Frostclaw (Alliance).

To earn this new achievement, you’ll need to have completed A Nation United, Zandalari Forever, Tides of Vengeance (Alliance), and Tides of Vengeance (Horde).


The Return of Hati

If you’re a level 120 Hunter, you’ll want to speak to Image of Mimiron located in Tradewinds Market in Boralus or the Great Bazaar in Zuldazar to get started on a new quest chain. You’ll learn more about Hati’s fate, and maybe even reunite with your old friend


Companion App Updates

The WoW Companion App has been updated to include a new calendar feature, social feature, and updated support for new World Quests so you can keep on top of everything going on in Azeroth wherever you go.


New Portal Rooms

New portal rooms are now located in Stormwind within the mage tower and just inside the front gates of Orgrimmar, where your faction has consolidated gateways to the other key locations of Azeroth.


New Pets

Raiding with Leashes  VI: Pets of Pandaria

Take to the Mists of Pandaria raid dungeons Mogu’shan Vaults, Terrace of Endless Spring, and Heart of Fear to collect the following 11 new pets that drop from the following bosses:

  • Amberglow Stinger:  (Blade Lord Ta’yak – Heart of Fear)
    The glow emanating from these is both calming and eerie at the same time when in total darkness.”
  • Kor’thik Smarmling: (Imperial Vizier Zor’lok – Heart of Fear)
    “Don’t let these eat after midnight; legend has it that it’s very dangerous.”
  • Living Amber:  (Amber Shaper Un’sok – Heart of Fear)
    “The mantid are extremely reliant upon amber for many things, and even use it in some of their magic.”
  • Spawn of Garalon:  (Garalon – Heart of Fear)
    “The kunchong are extremely aggressive and will eat just about anything they can as soon as they are able to walk. If they can’t eat it, they will smash it instead.”
  • Ravenous Prideling: (Grand Empress Shek’zeer – Heart of Fear)
    “As a spawn of the most dangerous sha, this little monster has some big plans, but needs to wait a few thousand years first.”
  • Baoh-Xi:  (Qin-xi –Mogu’shan Vaults)
    “For being an inanimate object for many centuries, this statue sure moves around really well.”
  • Comet: (Elegon – Mogu’shan Vaults)
    “The Engine of Nalak’sha is defended by many mighty beings, and many tiny beings.”
  • Stoneclaw: (The Stone Guard —Mogu’shan Vaults)
    “Quilen were the favored companions of the ancient mogu race due to their loyal nature.”
  • Azure Windseeker:  (Tsulong – Terrace of Endless Spring)
    “This little cloud serpent’s favorite activity is chasing its own tail.”
  • Spirit of the Spring:  (Lei Shi — Terrace of Endless Spring)
    “The elemental spirits of Pandaria have been known to plan tricks to play on unsuspecting visitors years in advance.”
  • Wayward Spirit:  (Gara’jal the Spiritbinder –  Mogu’shan Vaults)
    “Crossing into the spirit world too often can be dangerous for your health.”

 

Upon earning the Raiding with Leashes VI: Pets of Pandaria achievement, you’ll also receive the pet Happiness as a reward.

Happiness: “This thing is equally as evil as it is adorable.”

      The remasters and upscales keep on coming, as we have the Burning Crusade's intro cinematic in up to 8K resolution now!
      While BC is my favorite expansion ever, I was never a fan of the cinematic, as it's just a collection of various clips that don't have much of anything to do with Illidan's narration, until the very end. Obviously the two new races deserved screen time, but we didn't even get to see the Dranei's ship(s) in there, and then it's straight on to random battle clips. It obviously takes its cue from the Vanilla cinematic, as far as the clips go, but where it worked for Vanilla, which was simply setting the stage for the world itself, it falls a little flat here. But at least it does end on a high note, with the green horned one making a proper appearance.

      We have more Ivan Kuzkin goodness for you today, as he's put together a highlight reel of his 2019 Arena cinematic footage!
      We'll also be taking a look at his previous PvP videos, including a really old one from 4 years ago which is particularly impressive (and longer). Here's "The Rhythm of Chaos":
      And here's two earlier video trailers for the 2019 spring and fall seasons:
       
      Impressive stuff as always. Which cinematic would you wish IKedit would remaster next? Or should he go back to his earlier class series or other original machinimas?

      Even though the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur is going away in Shadowlands, Blizzard has no intent to remove the Auction House vendor from this mount and they removed the Mystic Birdhat's Reforging from the Grand Expedition Yak only because Reforging was removed from the game.
      Mighty Caravan Brutosaur will be limited to the Black Market Auction House in Shadowlands and Blizzard today dispelled rumors about the removal of the AH vendor from the mount.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Trying to figure out where these people keep getting this idea that the AH vendor is being removed from the mount because that has been said nowhere and yet people are acting like this is common knowledge.
      We want to be perfectly clear on this – we do not intend to remove the AH vendor from this mount, especially when some players put in a great deal of effort to acquire this mount specifically for that functionality. Of course, we remember that we removed the Mystic Birdhat’s Reforging from the Reins of the Grand Expedition Yak, but that was because we removed Reforging from the game.
      The Mighty Caravan Brutosaur is something that fundamentally alters players’ flow around the world, and it’s a unique convenience, but it’s certainly not essential. We’ve seen how luxury mounts like the Reins of the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth started out as something special and rare: a repair vendor wherever you are! They were originally ultra-exclusive and mostly purchased by guild banks for convenient raid use, but then became increasingly commonplace due to gold inflation over time.
      We think that a moderate amount of gold inflation is healthy. It ensures that new or returning players can catch up and participate in server economies without having to put in a herculean effort to avoid being priced out of essential goods. In this case, we want to ensure that in the long run, years from now, we don’t find ourselves looking around and seeing AH mounts that are as common as repair mounts are today.

      The side effects you get from Corrupted Items have changed on 8.3 PTR again.
      As you probably know, Corrupted Items are making their way into the game in Visions of N'Zoth. These items come with a Benthic-like buff and +Corruption, which activates various side effects based on your current level of Total Corruption. Cleansing the item not only removes the +Corruption stat, but also its beneficial effect.

      Blizzard has been working with multiple iterations of Corrupted Items on 8.3 PTR and side-effect ranges. Here's what we currently have on the PTR:
      Corrupted Items
      Items touched by N'Zoth's influence grant great power, but expose bearers to dangers of increasing severity.
      Grasping Tendrils (1 Corruption) - Taking damage has a chance to reduce your movement speed for 5 sec. The magintude of the snare increases with further Corruption. Eye of Corruption (20 Corruption) - Your spells and abilities have a chance to summon an Eye of Corruption for 8 sec. The Eye inflicts increasing Shadow damage to you every 2 sec while you remain in range. Range and damage increase with further Corruption. Grand Delusions (40 Corruption) - Taking damage has a chance to summon a Thing From Beyond, which pursues you for 8 seconds. Its speed increases with further Corruption.
      Cascading Disaster (60 Corruption) - If you are struck by the Thing From Beyond, you will be immediately aflicted by Grasping Tendrils and Eye of Corruption. Recent 8.3 Changes
      Previously, we had the effects activate at 10/20/40/60 Corruption as opposed to 1/20/40/60.  Eye of Corruption previously summoned a corrupted zone, but the eye is much more visible. Inevitable Doom which was available at 60 Corruption was removed and replaced with Cascading Disaster. You can find more details about Corrupted Items here.
