Ji'arak

This mighty pterrordax has a roost high up in the mountains of Zuldazar, where the air is too thin for most lungs to draw breath, and life struggles to take hold. Occasionally she descends upon the swamps below in search of heartier meals to bring back to her brood.

Overview

Ji'arak uses her massive wings to assault her foes with wind, drawing enemies in and pushing them away.

World Events

Chart a course across Kul Tiras and Zandalar for this week’s Bonus Event – World Quests.

THIS WEEK

All week, open your map (default hotkey-"m") and select any of the Kul Tiras or Zandalar regions to view the World Quests available to you. To find out more about each World quest, simply hover your mouse over a World Quest on the map to see what tasks are needed to complete it, the rewards you’ll receive, and the time remaining that the quest is available to you.

Look for the following all week long:

  • Chronicler Toopa in Boralus or Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar has a quest for you—The World Awaits. You can also start the quest from within the Adventure Guide (Shift-"J").
    • Quest requirement: Complete 20 World Quests in Kul Tiras or Zandalar
    • Reward: 1,000 War Resources
  • Passive buff: +50% to Reputation gains from World Quests

If you’ve been looking to impress some emissaries, this is the week to do it!

EVERY WEEK

The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.

Noblegarden (April 22nd - April 29th)

Noblegarden is here and if you're working on the What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been meta, don't forget to check out our updated Noblegarden guide!

Volunteer Guard Day (April 28th)

On this day, the denizens of Azeroth and Draenor take some time to celebrate the hard work that their guards perform. /Salute a guard to show you care!

      We have our 100 Mythic Crucible of Storms Horde champion guilds already! The Hall of Fame for the red faction is now closed with the guilds that managed to get in being set in stone, with a few more getting the Cutting Edge: Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void achievement, as it remained available until the end of this last reset. So if you're looking for the achievement or the "Famed Slayer of the Harbinger" title, you'll have to try on the Alliance side of things, where there's 88 slots left! Once the remaining Alliance guilds down Mythic Uu'nat, cross-realm Mythic will be enabled, but at this rate it's going to be a bit tight to reach that 100 number, as the Hall of Fame will close when the next raid, Azshara's Eternal Palace, opens. Cross-realm Mythic will also be enabled at that time, even if there aren't 100 Alliance guilds done with Mythic Crucible at that point.

      In any case, check out the full Horde Hall of Fame entry here.

      We have some new info on the change to how grouped players with their XP off function in 8.2, a change which was implemented to curtail players leveling much faster with an XP off person (usually a Demon Hunter in Island Expeditions or Freehold) in the group.

      Blizzard clarified that this change is only aimed at pre-made groups, aka groups where players have been invited directly, not via the matchmaker.
      XP Boost (source)
      I don’t want my XP to be 5% because some random troll que’d up on twink char and joined our group.

      This won’t happen.
      The change only affects groups that manually invite player characters who have XP off. There is no impact on players who find themselves automatically grouped by the matchmaker while doing PvP or Group Finder dungeons.
      This change also doesn’t affect anyone who has turned off XP for their own benefit, such as plundering old raids while keeping their level low enough to use their Aggramar’s Stride boots.
      Here's the aura in question:

      With the 8.2: Rise of Azshara release date looming ever closer, it's time to take a closer look at one of the central new features of the patch, with the latest upgrade to our Heart of Azeroth. In this guide we take a look at what essences are, how to unlock them and what each of them does. Aside from taking a look at what each individual essence does, we also check out where to get them, from Island Expeditions, Nazjatar, the Mechagon dungeon, rated and world PvP, reputations, mythic+, the raid and more!

      So if there's anything you wanted to know about the essence system, we have you covered, so just head on over to our guide and delve deep!

      WarcraftSecrets have spotted an interesting new aura on 8.2 PTR which reduces Experience gains from quests and kills by 95%, while someone in your party has disabled XP.
      Placeholder for tweet 1140393688272723969 Experience Eliminated - You've taken a vow of experience elimination and are unable to gain experience. There may be someone out there that can help you remove this...
      In the next tweet they clarified this mainly affects Demon Hunter boosting in Freehold and Island Expeditions and they hurry players to boost their characters before Patch 8.2 goes live which is rumored to happen June 25th.

(60 sec cooldown) Minor Power: Sphere of Suppression - When an enemy melee attacks you, their movement speed is reduced by 30% and you gain ??? Haste for 5 sec.

      Earn 15,000 Honor from PvP Island Expeditions, Brawls, Battlegrounds, and Epic Battlegrounds (Battlefield Brawler) to upgrade to this rank.
      Cooldown of the active ability is reduced by 15 seconds and the minor power adds Speed on top of Haste and lasts for two more seconds.

      If you hit an enemy, your movement speed will increase by 50% for 8 seconds on top of reducing your enemy's attack speed. The amount of Haste and Speed is increased on the minor power.
