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.

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

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.

      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.

      Major Power: Suppressing Pulse - Unleash a heavy pulse of suppressive energy, reducing the movement speed of all enemies within 15 yds by 70% and reducing their attack speed by 25% for 8 sec. (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. Note: Tooltips currently display 0 Haste and we only had numbers for the Rank 3 Minor Power on 8.2 PTR. Rank 2 (Sphere of Unrestrained Fury)
      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.
      Major Power: Suppressing Pulse - Unleash a heavy pulse of suppressive energy, reducing the movement speed of all enemies within 15 yds by 70% and reducing their attack speed by 25% for 8 sec.

      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.

      To collect the final fourth rank of the Essence, you must collect up to 100,000 Honor from PvP Island Expeditions, Brawls, Battlegrounds, and Epic Battlegrounds and earn the Battlefield Master achievement.
      The fourth rank of the Essence is only a cosmetic upgrade to its visual and shares stats with the previous rank.
