Recommended Posts

Our preview of Patch 8.2 continues with the Rustbolt Resistor Rustbolt Resistor which requires Exalted with Rustbolt Resistance and costs a whopping 524,288 Gold. You can find more details about it in our Mechagon Zone Guide.

The mount can be purchased from Stolen Royal Vendorbot, the Rustbolt Resistance Quartermaster located in Rustbolt.

"R E S I S T" is carved into the seat in crude letters, along with several, more profane things.

And what would happen to the vendor prices when the gold sinks?

Spoiler

I don't see anyone collecting a gold cap for the mounts 2 years from now if they keep this trend of making gold harder to obtain outside of playing with the ah

Aren't we supposed to be able to make gold before they put in gold sinks? 

just like a mythic endboss mount is a reward for raiders, or PvP mounts are rewards for PvP players, these goldsink mounts are rewards for goblins who play the auctionshouse all day.

Gold sink mounts are disgusting. Just because the like, top 1% of players managed to rake in millions upon millions, the rest of us have to suffer through unreasonable mount prices. It's bloody ridiculous.

Personally, both mounts look fugly as hell...neither is worse more then 40g......the faction mounts look more cooler and they are vastly cheaper.

I imagine most people that bought it aren't using it for the looks - I bought mine for another mount count, as well as being able to just AFK and use the AH outside of a major city. It was incredibly useful back when Boralus was super laggy and I could just sit in Drustvar next to a mailbox and have fun posting auctions.

Is this not the same thing as saying: gladiator mounts are disgusting? Just because the top x% of players managed to get Gladiator, the rest of us have to suffer through not having a gladiator's drake/frostwyrm etc.

Difference is that Gladiator mounts are something that everyone can realistically work towards through regular gameplay. Getting 5 million gold is unrealistic unless you do nothing but play the AH with addons. It doesn't include any sort of actual gameplay.

I agree that everything shouldn't just be given out, and should be worked towards, but every mount getting into the game purchaseable with gold now are becoming insanely overpriced. It would be better to have them be something that can be worked towards via gameplay in some way, like with the raptor mounts from Un'Goro.

If they are to add in mounts for gold, it would be fairer to have prices akin to what the spider mount originally were for on the PTR. 100k that is. Still expensive, but reachable by regular people. Getting mounts to millions are just insane, and targets the very few who have gold from previous expansions, without thinking about the majority of players.

Not very wild about some of those new mounts and it is a bit upsetting to see the gold spike of the price tag that is attached to them.  But I guess one can view this as obtaining a sort of 'rare' mount instead of countless/fruitless runs from doing old Raid/Dungeon grind for select elusive mounts on months to years on end.  And ever since Blizz removed the mounts attached to AOTC my drive for the achievement has diminished but I am looking forward into completing the new Daily quest for the Dino mount once 8.2 goes live.

playing the AH is part of the game, and addons for it are no different than addons for raiding.

If you want to mythic raid you NEED addons.  Can you get lucky and go without?  i suppose, but thats' the exception to the rule.  

Just because its not the way YOU play, doesnt mean its not being played.

Dude that thing is worth.


Are you kidding me?

Popping open an AH in the middle of nowhere is the greatest thing ever.

This is the greatest mount in the game imo.

I know its worth it! I bought one!, im just saying the new gold sink mount for 524,288 Gold is chump change compared to the 5 million for Bruto lol!

not all gold farmers just snipe and resell stuff or stay locked in the ah all day i farm up 99% of everything i sell myself  and i made 5xs the amount of gold you say you have to live in the ah to get in my first expansion playing and never stayed in the ah over 15-20 mins at a time.

 but you are right about the addons  they are very helpful to gold farmers. you have just as much access to them as you do for your  dbm, bigwigs  if you chose not to use them thats your choice

I disagree with this completely. I bought this mount exclusively with gold made at the start of the expansion, through professions only (mostly Inscription). I paused my leveling specifically to herb and craft whatever I could to make sure I made enough money while the time was right. Surely professions are part of the gameplay of WoW?

Anyone can get 5 million gold, there is no skill barrier to it, it is simply proper planning and patience. Gold is also something that can be earned absolutely anywhere in the game. You can literally do almost any activity in the game and make some gold that contributes to your goal. Farming every old raid for transmog each week doesn't take too long at 120, but you will gain gold while doing it. Sure, you only get 25-50k, but you are now 25-50k closer to that 5 million without having actually farmed gold specifically. Are you clearing a current raid and just had a BoE drop for you? Depending on the drop, that's an extra 100k+ towards your mount.

Another viable way to increase your gold stash is to sell boosts to other players. This can be done in pretty much any type of group activity in WoW.

      The BfA Arena World Championships have finished and we have the winners of the EU and NA regional Championships! Wildcard Gaming and M2KC have taken home $50,000 each and a whole lot of prestige, and some awesome-looking medals! so big congratulations to them! You can check out all the games over on the Warcraft YouTube channel.

      AWC Regional Champions (source)
      The best PvP teams from around the world competed in a grueling season of head-to-head arena action, but in the end only one team from each region could claim the championship.
      Congratulations Wildcard Gaming and M2KC who battled their way through fierce competition to rise as the Arena World Championship (AWC) Battle for Azeroth Regional Champions!
      These teams have managed to ford their way through all comers despite a year marked by a global pandemic and a move to a fully online competition. They’ve competed in a circuit against the best PvP teams from around the world through a series of four cups with each team ending the Battle for Azeroth season with winnings of $50,000 (USD), AWC Championship trophies, and securing their spot in the Hall of Fame.
      EU Champions - Wildcard Gaming
      After a grueling season, Wildcard Gaming faced off against XSET on Saturday night. In an intense battle, featuring an incredibly quick final map win, Wildcard Gaming triumphed 4-1 to secure the title of European Champions.

      NA Champions - M2KC
      The North American final proved even more ferocious, as M2KC dominated Charlotte Phoenix in the final match to secure a 4-1 final victory and the NA Championship.

      “Even after 13 years, you never know what to expect from the Arena World Championship,” said David Hollings, Product Lead for Arena World Championship. “Every single team really stepped up their game entering the fir ever AWC Circuit. This year has been incredibly difficult for everyone and I cannot think of a more exciting way to conclude the Battle for Azeroth season.”
      While the AWC Battle for Azeroth season has concluded the Arena competition doesn’t end there. Be sure to catch the start of the WoW Classic Fall Conquest next weekend on October 3 on YouTube and Twitch.

      We've recently talked a lot about the strange occurrences that happened on the US Khadgar server when it  failed a realm connection, as many players had their accounts set back to around Mists of Pandaria, and the subsequent restoration of said accounts. Popular YouTuber MadSeasonShow was one of the ones affected and has made a video going through what happened after his character restoration, including additional potential issues with the restorations.
      As you'll remember, while characters were brought back to their current levels, the old copies of those characters (if they existed in MoP) were left on the accounts, so players had doubles. The thing is, some of these characters could have very valuable items that were since either lost, deleted or sold, and could potentially even re-sell them, and as MadSeason mentions, there could be some REALLY valuable stuff in there like the TCG mounts or similar. In any case, check out the video for a quick overview of the whole situation:
      And, because it's pretty funny, here's the original video from when the characters simply vanished/were deleveled and no one was sure what was going on:
      Khadgar's troubles potentially aren't over yet, as the failed realm connections are coming up again tomorrow, so let's see what happens this time!

      Monks are a class that did not receive many changes on the Shadowlands Beta until very late in the cycle. We're checking out the latest round of Monk changes, one month ahead of Shadowlands release.
      Highlights
      Energizing Elixir has been removed from the global cooldown. Blizzard is aware of balance concerns Windwalker Monks have about dual-wield and Two-Handed weapons, and they are considering different options to address the problem, but they've got nothing to share at this time.  They are also aware of bugs related to Storm, Earth, and Fire in relation to other spells. They are looking to improve the reliability of the ability in future Beta builds. Weapons of Order (Kyrian Covenant Ability) has been redesigned for WW Monks. Multiple Legendary Powers have been tweaked. Monk
      Faeline Stomp (Night Fae Covenant Ability) now deals damage (or heals if Mistweaver) to targets in front of the Monk when cast and continues to deal damage to targets caught in the Faelines. Spinning Crane Kick now caps at 6 unique targets (was 5), dealing up to 60% damage (was 50%). Weapons of Order (Kyrian Covenant Ability) Brewmaster: For the next 30 seconds, your Mastery is increased by 10%. Additionally, Keg Smash cooldown is reset instantly and enemies hit by the ability take 5% increased damage from you for 8 seconds, stacking up to 5 times; Mistweaver: For the next 30 seconds, your Mastery is increased by 10%. Additionally, Essence Font cooldown is reset instantly and heals up to 6 nearby allies for (30% of Spell Power) Health on channel start and end; Windwalker: For the next 30 seconds, your Mastery is increased by 10% 13%. Additionally, Rising Sun Kick cooldown is reset instantly and your Rising Sun Kick reduces the cost of your Chi Abilities by 1 for 5 seconds, and Blackout Kick reduces the cooldown of affected abilities by an additional 1 second. Mistweaver
      Ancient Teachings of the Monastery (Legendary Power) - Your Tiger Palm, Blackout Kick, and Rising Sun Kick heal an injured ally within 20 yards for 120% of the damage done to an injured ally within 20 yards. Enveloping Breath - While active, Yu'lon and Chi'Ji heal nearby targets with Enveloping Breath when you cast Enveloping Mist, healing for [ 30% 180% of Spell Power ] over 6 sec, and increasing the healing they receive from you by 10%. Tear of Morning (Legendary Power) - Renewing Mist applies Extended Life to the initial target, instantly healing them for 145% of Holy Spell Power and increasing all healing done to them increases your healing done to the target by 15% for 12 seconds. When you heal with Enveloping Mist or Vivify, 50% of the heal is also applied to targets within your Extend Life effect. 25% of your Enveloping Mist and Vivify healing is also applied to all targets with Tear of Morning. Windwalker
      Haste now affects the periodic of Crackling Tiger Lightning. Energizing Elixir (Level 45 Talent) has been moved off the global cooldown. Blizzard has fixed a bug where Rising Sun Kick and Whirling Dragon Punch weren't contributing to Xuen's Empowered Tiger Lightning. Rising Sun Kick (Rank 2) restored. Increases the damage of Rising Sun Kick by 70%.

      Mirrors of Torment has been updated to grant you Brain Freeze, Fire Blast cooldown reduction, or Mana when a mirror is consumed, based on your current specialization. It can now proc from auto-attacks, but can only occur once every 6 seconds.
      Mirrors of Torment (Venthyr Covenant Ability) Arcane: Conjures 3 mirrors to torment the enemy for 20 25 seconds. Whenever the target attacks, casts a spell or ability, a mirror is consumed to inflict (75% 60% of Spell Power) Shadow damage and their movement and cast speed are slowed by 15%. The final mirror will instead inflict (198% 151% of Spell Power) Shadow damage to the enemy, Rooting and Silencing them for 4 seconds. Whenever a mirror is consumed, you gain 4% mana. Fire: Arcane: Conjures 3 mirrors to torment the enemy for 20 25 seconds. Whenever the target attacks, casts a spell or ability, a mirror is consumed to inflict (75% 60% of Spell Power) Shadow damage and their movement and cast speed are slowed by 15%. The final mirror will instead inflict (198% 151% of Spell Power) Shadow damage to the enemy, Rooting and Silencing them for 4 seconds. Whenever a mirror is consumed your Fire Blast cooldown is reduced by 4 seconds. Frost: Arcane: Conjures 3 mirrors to torment the enemy for 20 25 seconds. Whenever the target attacks, casts a spell or ability, a mirror is consumed to inflict (75% 60% of Spell Power) Shadow damage and their movement and cast speed are slowed by 15%. The final mirror will instead inflict (198% 151% of Spell Power) Shadow damage to the enemy, Rooting and Silencing them for 4 seconds. Whenever a mirror is consumed you gain Brain Freeze. Fire
      Fevered Incantation (Legendary Power) - Each consecutive Critical Strike you deal increases Critical Strike damage you deal by 2% up to 10%.

      He's at it again... This time around it's a ridiculous amount of healing, but only outside of Kul Tiras and Zandalar, and only for Alliance players. The main ingredient for this particular crazy stunt is the Gently Squeezed Toad, which you can summon every few seconds, then attack for over a million damage due to the damage aura that makes you deal more damage to low level mobs. And that's it, you just need some amount of leech to get crazy healing very often, with 500K individual heals and around 50-60K HPS with about 30% leech in Rextroy's specific example! The only problem is, this only works for Alliance, as the toy is only sold by Old Loola in the WoD Ally garrison and is BoP, so Horde need not apply.

      Check out the full video for the details, especially focusing on the World PvP uses:
