Broadcast Text


Baine Trapped Underneath Orgrimmar

There's a scenario involving Baine who's trapped beneath Orgrimmar. Jaina, Thrall, and the player try to save him and leave Orgrimmar, but the Sunreavers intervene.

  • Baine!
  • Th--Thrall? Jaina?
  • These chains are warded against magic. I'll need time to pick the lock.
  • This feels wrong. Sylvanas must have known we were coming.
  • "Indeed she did, traitor. You and Lady Proudmoore."
  • I have no quarrel with you.
  • "Have you forgotten the purge of Dalaran, murderer?  Today, the Sunreavers will be avenged."
  • "Then your vendetta is with me, and me alone!"
  • No! You will watch your friends die--just as I did!
  • Rangers! Kill them all! FOR THE SUNREAVERS!
  • Can you get us to safety?
  • She is... preventing teleportation...
  • Jaina... we need a way out!
  • She's... blocking teleportation...
  • I will hold the waters at bay... so long as I remain entertained.

There's also some broadcast text for Queen Azshara and Nazjatar.

  • Perfect!
  • Good Job!
  • Keep Trying!
  • What are you waiting for? We have the enemy in our sights! Fire!
  • "Ah, good. Our guests have arrived."
  • Behold the wonders of Nazjatar. The finest sight your eyes will ever behold... and the last.
  • "Please, do stay. Explore all the comforts my kingdom has to offer."
  • "Queen Azshara, more landwalkers approach."
  • They seek the tidestone... but I will not leave it unguarded as they so foolishly did.
  • "At once, my queen!
  • "I must say, that was a delightfully dramatic entrance."
  • "$n, you made it! I wasn't sure you would after Fenn told me of your task. What have you found?"
  • "You are bound to the Tidestone's might, Zharessa. Use it to wash away this unsightly incursion."
  • "A most devious arcane puzzle will lock my prized possessions, so that I may return one day and claim them. Now, to deal with all of this water flooding my chamber..."
  • "I have sealed the chamber, nonetheless this is quite alarming. I shall finish locking these chests and then enact a most brilliant escape that I simply have not thought of yet."
  • "I must say, you naga take orders well. These weapons are among the most powerful I have ever created."
  • You again? I should have known.
  • Workers! Deal with this intruder. Nothing halts production!
  • "This won't end well for you, I'm afraid."
  • "Only the most brilliant, like myself, will be able to complete my intricate puzzles. This one I have fashioned after the ley lines that cross our world."
  • "Ah, another puzzle complete. Let us see the thieves take my possessions now. What in the world is going on outside? It sounds like... the ocean?"
  • $n! Adaru told me of your task. What were you able to find?
  • Blademaster Okani has offered to aid us. Let's ensure the ankoans have whatever they require.
  • "I will lead our allies back to safety. Be cautious, $n. The naga won't relinquish their weapons easily."
  • "I'll lead our allies back to safety, but use caution, $n. Our enemies won't part with their weapons willingly."
  • "An arcane lock will protect this chest as well. They key, of course, is to never cross the ley lines."
  • "Another of my possessions, secured for the ages. One day, I will return for you."
  • "Yet, what if another of my genius should happen upon this cache? Ha! I made myself laugh. Another of my brilliance... how droll."
  • "Another ley lock secured. Even with the water entering my abode, to use my mind in such a fashion... I astound myself."
  • "The most difficult lock, for the most delicate prize. Try your mind against this, looter."
  • "The whispers from the deep call to me, but I have been hearing whispers for far longer than this. My things are all that matter to me now!"
  • I've got him free!
  • Stay close. I'll get us out.
  • You face far greater forces than you know.,
  • This is your last warning! I can still offer you mercy.
  • Leave now and I will call off the assault.
  • Azshara!
  • You cannot leave me here to die! We had a deal!
  • "Contain yourself, human. Show faith in your queen."
  • It's safe to assume that the naga are keeping a stockpile of these weapons somewhere nearby.
  • "If we can locate their cache, then we can strip them of their arsenal and arm our own forces."
  • It's safe to assume that the naga have a store of these weapons somewhere.
  • "If we're able to locate the cache, we can take the weapons ourselves and arm our allies."
  • Oculeth has been working on a way to detect even trace amounts of azerite. Let's ensure that he has whatever he needs to complete the task.
  • You! Get away from that!
  • Incompatible presence detected!
  • Unworthy subjects will be neutralized.
  • Uh oh. That can't be good.
  • Skaggit! Get that thing under control!
  • "Hang on, I've got an idea!"
  • Gimme that gnome!
  • "Hey, Brighteyes! Over here!"
  • "Phew! Looks like you handled that situation, boss!"
  • Good thing we kept one around. Now we've got a lead on the next location!,
  • Hah! This has gotta pay off!
  • Unworthy?! I hand-picked these tinkologists myself!
  • They're the best and the brightest!
  • Th-This can't be right! It's malfunctioning!
  • ,Amazing! The expedition has been saved by the Tinkmaster's technological expertise.
  • Most perplexing... I couldn't find a failsafe protocol.
  • "Thank you, Gila!"
  • "And now, with the coordinates in hand, our next stop is Mechagon!"
  • "Ah, looks like an intruder activated my arcane trap! You poor fool, you simply had no chance against my genius."
  • Annihilated.
  • "Obtaining the tidestone must be our top priority, but we cannot press further into Azshara's realm without first knowing what we're up against."

      As the battle chests are no longer a thing, with the base game and all expansions up to Battle for Azeroth now available for the subscription fee only, Blizzard have made a "New Player Edition" and it has some cool box art!
      It contains 30 days of subscription time, but only for a new account, so we can't grab it and then add time to our existing accounts, unfortunately, as it would be cool to have the box in the collection.

      Considering it's only $15, whoever, it might be worth getting anyway. This one was found at a Wallmart by redditor Bshild94, and the are is pretty iconic, although somewhat ironic since we still can't play the Wildhammer clan of dwarves, at least until Shadowlands releases, when we'll be getting some customization to look like the flying dwarves (now sure, technically the above is just a regular dwarf riding a gryphon, but come on - you see a dwarf flying, you think Wildhammer).
      A lot of potential new visitors to Azeroth are definitely confused as to how to even start with the game, so it's nice to have something like this at least clarify that this is how you start playing, it's all you need up to BfA, and you get Classic included as well. Shadowlands should also help with this, with the revamped leveling system which will actually allow you to play through an expansion's story from beginning to end while leveling.

      There's a lot of changes coming with 8.3, and pet battles aren't getting excluded. We have a preview of the way in which pet battles will be affected come the next patch: the blizzard and mudslide weather effects are getting buffed and there's a new weather type; world quest enemies will now scale to the highest level pet you have equipped; the way % damage reduction abilities stack is changing. There's also a planned re-balancing of certain pets and abilities, but that probably won't happen until after 8.3.
      You can also check out our 8.3 content hub for all the info on the upcoming patch.
      Pet Battles (source)
      Hello pet battlers!
      We’ve seen some discussion around pet battle changes coming in Visions of N’Zoth, and we’d like to discuss those, as well as changes we currently have planned for a future content update.
      The Weather Outside is Fight-ful
      Weather effects have always been intended to slightly change the rules of pet battles. Sandstorm is great against pets that do weaker attacks, Sunlight is great for healing abilities, and Cleansing Rain is great for aquatic abilities. However, Mudslide and Blizzard both fell by the wayside in terms of being impactful or rule-changing outcomes. So in Visions of N’Zoth, both of these weather effects are being updated with new added effects in addition to their existing effects:
      Blizzard Now also increases all elemental ability damage by 25%. Mudslide Now also increases all critical damage dealt by 25%. To be really clear about the Mudslide change: Critical strikes usually hit for 150% of normal damage. Mudslide will now increase that to 175% of normal damage.
      We’ve also been thinking for a while that we should add a new weather type to the game, so Visions of N’Zoth will also introduce a new weather type: Toxic Fumes. This deals Dragonkin damage to the current enemy pet and applies the Toxic Fumes weather effect.
      Toxic Fumes
      Increases the duration of all hostile damage over time effects by 1 round. All pets are considered Poisoned while Toxic Fumes is active. Max No More
      In Visions of N’Zoth, all of the new outdoor pet battle World Quests in Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms will scale their level to match the highest level pet currently slotted on your team, instead of always being a level 25 enemy pet. This will also be the case for Nazjatar and Mechagon – all of the pet battle World Quests there are being updated. You can check them all out with a team of three level 1 pets!
      Stat Changes
      In Visions of N’Zoth, we’re also changing how percent-damage reduction abilities stack with each other. Currently, if you’re fighting a pet like Unit 17 in Mechagon (a Boss pet that passively takes 50% less damage), and Unit 17 uses Crouch, Unit 17 becomes immune to damage because the two 50% damage reduction effects are added to each other. In Visions of N’Zoth, the plan is to cap damage reduction at -75%. Using Unit 17 as an example, while Crouch is active, it will take 75% reduced damage instead of 100% reduced damage. This will smooth out the challenge with some enemy bosses.
      Please note that abilities like Dodge or Deflection will continue to avoid all damage. Those will not be impacted by this change.
      What the Future Holds
      In a future update, we’re targeting a number of balance changes we want to make, which will amount to lowering the effectiveness of some pets and strategies. Again, these changes will not be happening in Visions of N’Zoth, but we wanted to give you ample warning time that changes are coming. While we don’t have specific numbers or details to share right now, here are some examples of abilities that we’re going to take a close look at:
      Black Claw and similar abilities that increase damage taken by a flat amount. Hunting Party and similar abilities such as Flock. The Shattered Defenses debuff effect from abilities such as Hunting Party or Flock. Any large percent-damage-taken or percent-damage-dealt buffs or debuffs. Twilight Meteorite and similar long-cooldown damage-splitting abilities. The Jar of Smelly Liquid ability. Hermit Crab Of course that last one isn’t an ability, but Hermit Crab incorrectly has a higher stat budget than it should, and it will have its stats reduced to bring it in line with other similar pets.
      A goal we have when making many new pet battle World Quests or encounters is to create puzzles that players can counter and “solve”-- ideally with the option to use a variety of pets and tools to do so. When a few pets have such strong synergies that they can deal massive damage in just a few rounds and almost trivially beat these enemies, it becomes problematic. Do we make new challenges only beatable by the highest damage combos, or do we make them generally solveable and therefore immediately smashed by massive damage?
      We don’t want to ruin the feel of combination abilities, so we aren’t going to make Black Claw no longer interact with Hunting Party or Flock, but we want to make sure these abilities are dealing appropriate damage. And we want to make sure that secondary effects such as Shattered Defenses are being accounted for with regards to balance.
      When we have further specifics, we will be sure to let you know.

      It's time to take a real look at the Corruptor in his home of Ny'alotha, as he's currently being tested on Heroic difficulty on the PTR! There are plenty of streams to check out, but we picked out a few you can check out here. You can also check out the mount rewards for killing the big tentacle/eye thingy, as well as for the Glory of the Raider, and the Ahead of the Curve one.

      This is a weird one, even by weird bug standards. Apparently there's a bug in the Anniversary Event Firelands raid that will randomly teleport any rogue that uses Killing Spree during the Ragnaros encounter to another part of the Firelands. The devs are aware of the issue and are working on a hotfix, but for now maybe don't use Killing Spree Rag!
      Check out our WoW 15-year Anniversary Event guide to get all the rewards from it!
      Outlaw in Firelands (source)
      Could somebody explain how this works? I queued for all 3 stood around and waited for 15 minutes. I then proceed to kill 2.5 bosses, with the 3rd being ragnaros. However I randomly get teleported out to firebreach or something and then i just hang around there for a few minutes until everyone leaves the raid. What am i doing wrong? This keeps happening and it’s not like i’m dying or something. It’s also happened with another instance but the rag 1 has happened like 4 times now.
      Just to add some Blue to this, we have seen an issue that causes Outlaw Rogues to be teleported to another part of the Firelands after using Killing Spree during the Ragnaros fight of the Anniversary Event.
      It’s something the WoW Team are looking into and working on a fix for, in the meantime another spec or simply not using Killing Spree in that encounter should let you finish it off.
      Sorry for any hassle there, will try update again with any news but keep an eye on the Hotfix posts too incase it’s posted there before I get a chance to share it.

      A compilation of everything we know about the alternative to Titanforging coming in Patch 8.3.
      Note that Patch 8.3 won't be out before next year and the current iteration of the system will be changed in future builds.
      The Successor to Warforging and Titanforging
      In Visions of N'Zoth and Mythic Season 4, Blizzard is effectively changing Warforging/Titanforging to a system called Corrupted items, which:
      Come with Benthic-like effects in three tiers (Tier 1/2/3); Come with a +Corruption stat in three tiers (Tier 1/2/3) which activates negative effects based on your Total Corruption accumulated on all gear; Random Corruption ranges have become changed to static in the recent 8.3 PTR build.
      "Benthic" Effects on Corrupted Items
      Corrupted items have the following Benthic-like effects on them:
      Tier 1: Your Avoidance is increased by an amount equal to 3% of your Haste. Tier 2: Your Avoidance is increased by an amount equal to 6% of your Haste. Tier 3: Your Avoidance is increased by an amount equal to 10% of your Haste. Critical Strike
      Tier 1: Increases the amount of Critical Strike you gain from all sources by 2%. Tier 2: Increases the amount of Critical Strike you gain from all sources by 3%. Tier 3: Increases the amount of Critical Strike you gain from all sources by 4%. Critical Damage Bonus
      Tier 1: Increases the damage you deal with Critical Strikes by 2%. Tier 2: Increases the damage you deal with Critical Strikes by 3%. Tier 3: Increases the damage you deal with Critical Strikes by 4%. Damage Taken Reduction
      Tier 1: Reduces your damage taken from periodic effects by 2%. Tier 2: Reduces your damage taken from periodic effects by 4%. Tier 3: Reduces your damage taken from periodic effects by 6%. Haste
      Tier 1: Increases the amount of Haste you gain from all sources by 2%. Tier 2: Increases the amount of Haste you gain from all sources by 3%. Tier 3: Increases the amount of Haste you gain from all sources by 4%. Healing Received Increase
      Tier 1: Increases your healing received from all sources by 2%. Tier 2: Increases your healing received from all sources by 4%. Tier 3: Increases your healing received from all sources by 6%. Health Regen
      Tier 1: 20% of total Health regeneration now continues during combat. Tier 2: 30% of total Health regeneration now continues during combat. Tier 3: 40% of total Health regeneration now continues during combat. Leech
      Tier 1: Increases your Leech by 2%. Tier 2: Increases your Leech by 4%. Tier 3: Increases your Leech by 6%. Mastery
      Tier 1: Increases the amount of Mastery you gain from all sources by 2%. Tier 2: Increases the amount of Mastery you gain from all sources by 3%. Tier 3: Increases the amount of Mastery you gain from all sources by 4%. Versatility
      Tier 1: Increases the amount of Versatility from all sources by 2%. Tier 2: Increases the amount of Versatility from all sources by 3%. Tier 3: Increases the amount of Versatility from all sources by 4%. Spell Cast
      Tier 1 & Tier 2: Not Available / Implemented Yet? Tier 3: Your spells and abilities have a chance to grant you a Flash of Clarity, reducing the cooldown of your next 3 spells cast by 2 sec. Corruption Stat
      Based on your Total Corruption accumulated from all gear, there are four side effects that activate at various Corruption Levels:
      Corruption Level Side Effect Description 10+ Corruption Grasping Tendrils Taking damage has a chance to slow your movement speed for 5 sec. The magnitude of the slow increases with further Corruption. 20+ Corruption Corrupted Zone Your spells and abilities have a chance to create a corrupted zone at your location, dealing Shadow damage to you every 2 sec. The size and damage of the corrupted zone increases with higher Corruption. 40+ Corruption Grand Delusions Taking damage has a chance to summon a Thing from Beyond, which pursues you for 10 seconds. Its speed increases with further Corruption. 60+ Corruption Creeping Death Damage taken increased by 10% and healing reduced by 10%. The negative effects are not static and grow in power with increasing Corruption on your gear. For example, Creeping Death at Corruption Level 106 increases your damage taken and reduces your healing taken by 56%, which is a significant increase over 10% at Corruption Level 60.

      Higher Corruption increases the number of side effects and their strengths.
      Character Appearance
      Your character becomes darker and pulses with Void energy based on your Corruption Level.

      Azerite Powers
      We datamined the Heart of Darkness Azerite Power which increases all your secondary stats by 54 while your Corruption Level is 25 or higher.
      Corrupted Rings in Patch 8.3
      Certain rings from Ny'alotha come with Benthic-like effects and a debuff with side effects.
      Corrupted Ring - Face the Truth Corrupted Ring - Last Grasp Corrupted Ring - Masochistic Corrupted Ring - Mesmerizing Corrupted Ring - Overconfident Corrupted Ring - Revel in Violence Corrupted Ring - Spontaneous Fury Corrupted Ring - Thing From Beyond Corrupted Weapons in Patch 8.3
      Certain weapons from Ny'alotha also have Benthic-like effects and a flat +25 Corruption Stat Increase which isn't currently reflected on the tooltip.
      Weapon Effect Description An'zig Vra Devour Vitality Your autoattacks bite into the target's soul, dealing 2% of your health in damage and healing you for that amount. Devastation's Hour Twilight Devastation Your attacks have a chance to trigger a beam of Twilight Devastation, dealing damage equal to 5% of your health to all enemies in front of you.
      Eyestalk of Il'gynoth Ineffable Truth Your Spells and Abilities have a chance to show you the Ineffable Truth, increasing the rate your cooldowns recover by 20% for 12 sec. Faralos, Empire's Dream Searing Flames Your damaging abilities build stacks of Searing Flames. When you reach 30 stacks, exhale a Searing Breath, dealing damage equal to 5% of your health to all targets in front of you. Mar'kowa, the Mindpiercer Flash of Insight Your mind's true potential is unlocked, causing your spells to grant you flashes of insight. Gain between 1% and 8% Intellect at all times. Qwor N'lyeth Echoing Void Your damaging abilities build the Echoing Void. Each time it builds, Echoing Void has a chance to collapse, dealing 1% of your Health as Shadow damage to all nearby enemies every 1 sec until no stacks remain. Shard of the Black Empire Twisted Appendage Your attacks have a chance to spawn a tentacle which Mind Flays your target for [ 3,110 + 25% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage every second for 10 sec. Shgla'yos, Astral Malignity Infinite Stars Your spells and abilities have a chance to strike a nearby enemy with an Infinite Star, dealing [ 60% of Spell Power ] Arcane damage and increasing their damage taken from your Infinite Stars by 25%, stacking up to 10 times. Sk'shuul Vaz Obsidian Skin Gain Obsidian Skin, increasing your Armor by 5%. Every 100% of your Max Health lost, explode with Obsidian Destruction, dealing Shadow damage equal to 1,000% of your Armor to all enemies within 20 yds. Unguent Caress Lash of the Void Your attacks have a chance to lash your target with a living tentacle, dealing [ 30% of Attack Power ] Shadow damage and snaring them by 30% for 6 sec. Vorzz Yoq'al Void Ritual Gain Void Ritual, giving your spells and abilities a chance to increase all secondary stats by 10 every sec for 20 sec. This chance is increased if at least 2 nearby allies also have Void Ritual. Whispering Eldritch Bow Whispered Truths Your auto-shots reduce the remaining cooldown of a random Hunter ability by 1.0 sec. Corruption Resistance
      There are various ways to decrease your Corruption Level in Patch 8.3:
      New 8.3 Essences will reduce your Corruption by 10. You can talk to MOTHER and cleanse an item off Corruption, but that will also remove its beneficial effect. Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve (Wrathion's Legendary Cloak) comes with +5 Corruption Resistance at Rank 1. The Heart of Azeroth will have an infinite trait to aid you against N’Zoth’s Corruption at max level (Purity of the Worldsoul). The trait's available at HoA Level 85 and more details can be found here. Blizzard's Goals with Corrupted Items
      Finally, Blizzard shared their thoughts on the new Corrupted Items system in a blue post on October 24.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The most recent PTR build introduced an early version of our Corrupted Items system, and we’d like to highlight a few aspects of how the Corruption system works, and our goals as we iterate on it.
      How Corruption Works
      Items from Ny’alotha, Mythic Keystone dungeons in Season 4, BfA PvP Season 4, the Heroic Darkshore Warfront, and other new sources of loot that are updated with Season 4 will not be able to Warforge or Titanforge. Items from older content will retain an effective “ceiling” of item level 455, as they do today.
      There will be a chance for these new items to be Corrupted by N’Zoth. A Corrupted item has a powerful beneficial property, similar to many of the Benthic effects seen in Nazjatar, but has a new detrimental stat: Corruption. Items can have varying levels of Corruption, with the amount of Corruption present correlating directly with the power of the beneficial upside (for example: an item might give 4% Critical Strike damage and 10 Corruption, or 6% Critical Strike damage and 15 Corruption).
      Corruption represents the influence of N’Zoth, which will have negative effects on the wearer. As Corruption increases, a series of drawbacks are activated. You might remember how Corruption worked on the Cho’gall encounter back in Bastion of Twilight – that was a source of inspiration here. The drawbacks currently on the PTR are works-in-progress and not-yet-tuned, and we have changes already implemented in the next PTR build. Our general intent is for low Corruption to activate a minor effect that most people can play around without too much difficulty, medium levels of Corruption to activate a couple more effects that have a higher skill cap (nd may be more situational in where and when someone can handle having them active), and high levels of Corruption to be prohibitive, and virtually never worth it.
      Gear that makes your character worse when you equip it doesn’t sound terribly appealing, but fortunately there will be a few ways of dealing with Corruption. The legendary cloak that players will earn from Wrathion early on in Visions of N’Zoth will negate some Corruption, and can be upgraded through entering and completing Horrific Visions to provide even more of a bulwark against Corruption.
      Early on, we expect that players might wear one or maybe two pieces of Corrupted gear at a time. Later on, three or four pieces might be manageable. The vast majority of the gear players wear, even later on, will not be Corrupted. And these perks aren’t planned to be slot-restricted, so if there’s a specific power you want, there should never be a concern that your item needs to roll with that affix to be useful.
      We also never want an item that would otherwise be an upgrade to feel unusable as a result of being Corrupted, so any Corrupted items can be taken to the Heart Forge and purified without restriction . If you get that trinket you’ve been hoping for, but it’s Corrupted with a beneficial effect you don’t like, or wearing it would push you above a Corruption threshold you’re comfortable with, just purify the item and carry on.
      Itemization Philosophy
      With itemization, we’re always looking for opportunities to create moments of excitement and choices and options to customize your gameplay to suit your playstyle and the content you choose to play. Warforging created some of this by allowing useful rewards to come from a wide range of content, and ensuring that there was almost always at least the chance of an upgrade from any repeat boss kill or other source of loot. However, as we’ve seen and heard clearly in feedback over the past years, it has also brought significant downsides: Progression feels less rewarding, as players killing a raid boss on a new difficulty for the first time often disenchant much of the loot because they have equal or better Warforged items from lower difficulties or other sources. In addition, the feeling that a given item could have Warforged more and been even better can leave a sense of disappointment at what should have been a clear reward moment. And the sense that these systems are out of players’ direct control makes it harder to work towards a clear goal or state of completion.
      The Corruption system isn’t a permanent addition to World of Warcraft, but it is an extension of the theme of N’Zoth’s pervasive and growing influence over Azeroth. As we explore this over the course of the PTR, we’d love to hear feedback about the initial round of powers showing up on items, Corruption drawbacks that may be excessively punitive, and the system as a whole.
      Please feel free to reply with your feedback here in this thread. Thank you very much!
