World of Warcraft Patch 8.6.7 Build 5309

Update Notes WIP DO NOT RELEASE

April 1, 2019

Companion App Update: Findr
Find your next tank, healer, or damage dealer at a glance with the latest update to the WoW Companion App: Findr. When you open the Findr feature, you’ll be presented with a picture and a brief description of another player, and you can decide whether they’d be the right match for your party. Features include:

  • Glance at a player’s gear and achievement points for 3 seconds (maximum) before making a snap judgment about how well they’ll tank your Mythic Keystone run.
  • Swipe right to request a match and immediately send a party invitation.
  • Swipe left to completely dismiss the player’s entire existence; this is completely anonymous, distancing you from the other player’s growing vortex of self-doubt.
  • Once a match has been made, option to not message them right away, which makes it look like you’re super busy and use Findr all the time.

When the time is right, gather your new groupmates together, and head off to whatever adventures lay in store!

General

  • “Shell Game” can now be attempted on Mythic difficulty, featuring a 64x64 grid.
  • Following the success of the Comp Stomp PvP Brawl, which allowed a team of AI-controller characters to battle real players in Arathi Basin, we are now allowing teams of AI characters to complete dungeons.
  • Riverbud is now legal in Drustvar, Stormsong Valley, and Tiragarde Sound.
  • Riverbud remains illegal in Kul Tiras.

Races

  • Blood elves now have short-eared cosmetic options.
  • The human racial ability that allows you to escape has been renamed. It is now called Every Skinny Kul Tiran for Himself.

Classes

Death Knight

  • New Runeforging trait: Emboss your weapon with the ability to transport you to Bolvar. You should talk to your death dad more often, my dude.
  • New Death Knight travel form: Death Leopard
  • Blood Death Knights may no longer select the Heartbreaker talent during the Love Is in the Air event, you monsters.
  • The Bloody Runeblade Azerite trait can’t believe the news today. Runeblade, Bloody Runeblade.
  • Recent alternative healer disciplines have resulted in a resurgence of Virulent Plague.

Demon Hunter

  • Due to a general lack of demons in Battle for Azeroth, the Illidari have begun looking for new sources of souls.
  • Insatiable Hunger has been trying out intermittent fasting and is seeing some great results.
  • After poor results from a recent structural inspection, all Eye Beams are being upgraded for greater load capacity.

Druid

  • Nobody:
  • Blizzard: Druids don’t wear clothing, they just shapeshift themselves to appear like they do.
  • Feral Druids can now be crowd-controlled by throwing a slice of cheese on their head.
  • Groups of 5 Feral Druids can come together to form one super-bot.
  • Due to noise complaints, Stonebark has been fitted with a shock collar.
  • Soul of the Forest has been donated to Demon Hunters.

Hunter

  • Hati went to live on a farm with grandpa Rexxar. We promise you, Hati is in a better place.

  • Pets that meet certain size and weight restrictions may now travel with you on flight paths.
  • Survival Hunters may now equip quivers.

Mage

  • The Mage class mount has been re-released as a digital download for those without a disc drive.
  • Aluneth now responds to voice commands. Examples include:
    • “Aluneth, reorder my mats.”

  • Flame Patch has been renamed to Flame Content Update.
  • Blazing Soul has been donated to Demon Hunters.
  • Conjure Refreshment now creates Arcanado Toast.

Monk

  • A Brewmaster got into the Whirling Dragon Punch. You should probably take it easy.
  • Mist Wrap has been upgraded to Mist Wrap Supreme, which includes sour cream and cheese.
  • Dampen Harm has been removed. Harm is damp enough already. You might even call it moist.
  • Tiger’s Lust is now rated T for Teen.

Paladin

  • Light of Dawn is now more energy efficient and automatically turns off if you leave the room.
  • First Avenger only understood a few of the references in these patch notes.
  • Repentance has been renamed “Shame.” It now has 3 charges, which can be reset by ringing a bell.
  • Inquisition is now baseline, and activates randomly without warning. No one expects Inquisition!

Priest

    • Bae Blade’s whispers are now more encouraging.
    • Bae Blade is now your life coach.
    • You can do it, sweetie.

  • Auspicious Spirits has been increased. It is now 40% more auspicious.
  • Circle of Healing is now available in other useful shapes.
  • The Demon Hunters got into Body and Soul, but didn’t quite know what to do with half of it, so it’s just Body now.

Rogue

  • Fan of Knives is no longer suitable for displaying on your bedroom wall at your age, Randy.
  • Because you can’t stop being children with abbreviations, Assassination has been renamed. It is now known as “Sneaky Stab Guy.”
  • To promote class fantasy, Vendetta has had its cooldown increased by 40 years.
  • It’s been almost 15 years and Shadowstrike still reminds you of that one polearm nobody wanted in Molten Core.
  • Soul Shadows (Artifact Trait) has been donated to Demon Hunters.
  • In an effort to make the Rogue class appeal to a younger audience, Shadow Dance has been given some more modern styles:
    • Shadow Yeet
    • Shadow Floss
    • Shadow Dab

Shaman

  • Shaman totems now come in a tote(m) bag, which you can receive by sending a generous donation to the Earthen Ring.
  • Sundering now requires specific garments be worn in order to be used. You must always equip clean Sunderwear.
  • Static Charge is now 50% more effective when on carpet.
  • Call the Thunder would really like you to start texting instead. It’s 2019.
  • Liquid Magma Totem has been renamed Magma Totem, because what other kind of magma would it be?

Warlock

  • Warlocks are refusing to share their souls with Demon Hunters.
  • Almost certainly unrelated to the above, several Warlock spells seem to have gone missing:
    • Dark Soul
    • Soul Conduit
    • Soul Strike

    • Burning Rush
    • Soul Fire

As someone who has mained a Rogue for 12 years, the Rogue notes absolutely made my day.  I would love the joke Assassination (Sin / A$s) rename to Sneaky Stab Guy.

Back in 2011 they added one for rogue/rouge that will stick to me for as long as I play a rogue/rouge:

Rogues

  • Due to continual misspellings of the "rogue" class, we have officially changed the name to the easier to type "rouge."

Additionally I would like to have outlaw Rogues renamed to less sneaky slash/smack guy, sign here please to support 🙂

      N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth is a new item discovered on 8.3 PTR which transforms you into a Servant of N'Zoth and lets you kill members of your own faction in Kul Tiras and Zandalar if you're into PvP and have War Mode on.
      To receive N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth, you must first turn on War Mode and defeat 10 members of the opposing faction without dying. The subsequent quest provides you with N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth and the goal is to slay 10 members of your own faction without dying to receive the Servant of N'Zoth achievement which comes with the Servant of N'Zoth title and the quest also rewards the N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth toy. Other rewards are currently unknown.

      We've encountered the Talon's Vengeance faction in Legion and used Ivory Feather to collect Marks of Prey and on the Timeless Isle we used Censer of Eternal Agony to collect Bloody Coins from players back in Mists of Pandaria, so the concept isn't exactly new.

      It will be easier to acquire Nazjatar Essences in Patch 8.3 on alts. Blizzard added new Bind to Account reputation tokens which increase your rep gain with the Nazjatar factions by 250 up to Exalted.
      Mechagon already comes with a reputation-increasing item in the form of Rustbolt Resistance Insignia and instead of making Essences account-wide, Blizzard decided to implement new reputation tokens purchasable from the Nazjatar faction quartermasters. They cost 20 Prismatic Manapearls and increase your reputation with the factions by 250 each. You can buy them if you're main has reached Revered with the respective Nazjatar reputation.
      Waveswept Abyssal Conch can be purchased from Speaker Utia for 20 Prismatic Manapearls and increases your reputation with Waveblade Ankoan by 250 up to Exalted. Waveswept Abyssal Conch can be purchased from Atolia Seapearl for 20 Prismatic Manapearls and increases your reputation with the Unshackled by 250 up to Exalted. Additionally, Blizzard reduced reputation requirements from 8.2 vendor-sold Essences and you can find more details here.

      Finally Deathwing's size is getting the appropriate number of pixels to represent him as he was meant to be! We have two new AI upscaled videos to share today, starting with the into to Cataclysm, aka the Deathwing blows everything up show. There's also the ill-fated Starcraft: Ghost 3rd person shooter that was cancelled, but not before we got a pretty solid cinematic out of it, featuring the Overming, a whole lot of marines and zerg and, ofc course, Nova.

      Black Dragonscale Backpack is a cosmetic item sold by Wrathion in Patch 8.3. The cloak is actually a Wrathion-themed backpack that can be used for transmog.
      The backpack is very similar to the Vulpera Heritage Rucksack, used in the Vulpera Heritage Armor in Visions of N'Zoth.

      When you unlock Horrific Visions in the upcoming content update, you can talk to Wrathion who sells various items for Coalesced Visions and Corrupted Mementos including:
      Vessel of Horrific Visions for 10,000 Coalesced Visions; Gouged Eye of N'Zoth for 25,000 Corrupted Mementos; Black Dragonscale Backpack (new) for 40,000 Corrupted Mementos; Wicked Swarmer for 100,000 Corrupted Mementos. Related 8.3 Build 32805 News
      Veteran of the Fourth War Flavor Spell for 2nd Generation of Death Knights Vulpera Bag of Tricks Racial Mistweaver Monk Essence Changes Death Knight Eyes Update
    • By Stan
      Veteran of the Fourth War is a new spell intended for the second generation of Death Knights created in Patch 8.3. The flavor spell is in place to reflect the end of the Battle for Azeroth War Campaign in front of the Gates of Orgrimmar ([error]). It works exactly as Veteran of the Third War for existing Death Knights.
      Players who pre-ordered Shadowlands will be able to create Allied Race and Pandaren Death Knights in Visions of N'Zoth. There will be a new intro with Bolvar and Blizzard has updated their eye glow multiple times on 8.3 PTR to bring it more in line with the Lich King's eyes.
