Patch 8.2: New Gold Sink Mount - Rustbolt Resistor

Recommended Posts

XQNGvM8.jpg

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

219 gold? 512 kilogold? half a megagold?

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've already seen Blizzard's official April Fools, uh, I mean patch 8.8.8 notes, so now it's time to take a look at what the community has created for this special day. Let's start off with the WoW reddit itself, as it got slightly reforged, with the header being distorted (and asking you to activate Windows), and the font changed to comic sans.

      Then it's on to fan creations, with two solid videos, starting with an epic Shadowlands login screen presentation.
       
      (Source 1, source 2)
      This next one is a weird one, but let's not think about it too much and just enjoy Sarguini:


      Method actually had one of the best entries today, as their "joke" actually sounds not only plausible, but is seemingly inevitable at some point in the future:
      That one actually scares me as I seriously think it's going to happen. I suppose I'd better get ready for Method 2 get the World First, as Limit 5 are 10% away from a kill, just ahead of Methods 1 and 3 and Limits 2 and 58.
      And we'll finish with the biggest one, which was done by WoWhead, who had some detailed info from the "8.3.5 PTR".
      They also had some cosmetics related to the Gift of N'Zoth, including Pepe and a whole bunch of tentacles,  but the big one was the summer mounts!
        
      And as a bonus, here are some Overwatch in-game googly eyes!
       
      I probably/definitely missed a bunch, so post your favorites in the comments, they don't even have to be WoW related!
    • By Starym
      Here come the traditional April Fools patch notes! This time it's patch 8.8.8, so Ion was correct in that we won't have 8.3.5 and are jumping a bit ahead! There's a whole lot new coming... some day... as we get Terrific Visions, new allied races in Mechatauren, High Dwarves and Kul Tiran Worgen, new M+ affixes, essences, micro-holidays, new flavors of Classic and a whole lot of (very serious) class changes!
      Patch notes (source)
      World of Warcraft Patch 8.8.8 Build 88888 WORK IN PROGRESS
       
      April 1, 2020
      Tech writer note – looking for edits from all producers and team leads here. Please get back to us by EOD tomorrow, and please don’t leak this doc like one of you leaked all the new professions. Oof.
      NEW FEATURES
      TERRIFIC VISIONS
      Now that N’Zoth is vanquished and all of Azeroth’s problems are solved forever, players will delve into future-looking scenarios that offer a new way of helping Azeroth’s champions see past the old god. With LACEC (Light Assisted Corruption Eradication Conversion), you’ll use Titan technology to step into a look at what the future might hold after everyone stops fighting.
      In Terrific Visions, you’ll keep an eye on your Vanity meter while enjoying all that life has to offer. If your Vanity runs out, you’ll be forced to read Torn Pages from N’Zoth’s Diary. For example:
      I am an Old God in this lonely city.
      I think about sad things; no one calls me pretty.
      “My name is N’Zoth” I scrawled over there.
      I never meant for ME to feel this despair.
      NEW ALLIED RACES
      HIGH DWARVES
      The long wait is finally over, and the much-requested High Dwarves are finally coming to Azeroth. There’s not really more to say about the glory of the High Dwarves that hasn’t already been said in the General Discussion forum.
      MECHATAUREN
      Moooove over, all you Horde races who are cursed with flesh. We’re about to raise the steaks on the udderly fantastic notion of Tauren+mechanical bioengineering. Don’t worry, we wouldn’t steer you wrong.
      KUL TIRAN WORGEN

      HIGHMOUNTAIN GOBLIN

      NEW MYTHIC KEYSTONE DUNGEON AFFIXES
      New affix: Legit Questioning – Within 3-5 minutes of each boss kill, 30 to 50 feral hogs run into your dungeon. How do you kill them?
      New affix: Tub Thumping – With each pull, you get knocked down. But don’t worry—you’ll get up again. We’re never gonna keep you down.
      NEW ESSENCE
      Now, the most-accomplished and powerful players – those who do a significant amount of pet battling every single day for many consecutive days – can obtain Vision of Furrpection .
      Major Power – Reflects all incoming damage. This effect scales with the number of max-level battle pets you have in your collection, to a maximum duration of 30 seconds, with a 60 second cooldown.
      Minor Power– You enter stealth after standing still for 2 seconds. Thereafter, moving does not break stealth.
      Developers’ note: We haven’t yet completed our tuning pass on this Essence, but we wanted to get it into players’ hands as soon as possible. We’re really looking forward to seeing if players find a use for it.
      NEW MICRO-HOLIDAY: MOTHER’S DAY
      She’s cared for you through so many difficulties. Now, it’s your turn to show your appreciation for her. Please make a note on the in-game calendar and actually show up for this easy quest chain. You only have to do it once per year, and it means so much to MOTHER.
      NEW MICRO-HOLIDAY: MAGNI-FICENT TRAVELS
      For one day only, Magni is just going to go wherever he wants and it’s up to you to find your own way there. Magni might lead you to visit your bodyguard in Nazjatar who’s kind of lonely now. He might want to go pull some pranks. When you finally get to him, have fun! Set the Stormwind Park back on fire or something.
      CHANGES
      CORRUPTION EFFECTS
      Infinite Stars has to be renamed, because every time we reduce Infinite Stars by 20%, we’re left with Infinite Stars. Even just pondering it gives us headaches. How about “Many Countable Stars”?
      Echoing Void no longer sounds like a car alarm between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. when people are trying to sleep over here!
      Ineffable Truth can’t be changed.
      Twisted Appendage has been given an additional twin tentacle: Twisted Sister.
      Gushing Wound has been reduced to gush 20% less than it gushed before.
      ESSENCES
      Worldvein Resonance now hurts your ears 20% less.
      Memory of Lucid Dreams is now 10% more memorable.
      Conflict and Strife is now only obtainable through Fishing.
      Vitality Conduit now yells at you in the voice of Shia LaBeouf to “Just Duit!!”
      Vision of Furrpection has been renamed and is now called Furrification Protocollar.
      MISCELLANEOUS CHANGES
      After receiving a great amount of negative sentiment having something to do with the Big Love Rocket mount, we’ve decided to make the Big Love Rocket mount 50% larger, and give it a 200% speed boost. Thank you for your feedback.
      Tortollan scribes are so very tired of watching you stumble around, that their standards have been lowered by 90%. Draw whatever shape you want. Go nuts. Just finish and get out of here.
      All bells have been removed from the game. We’re not sure why, but some raccoon showed up, said something about a house, and ran off with them.
      Essence of Fire, Essence of Water, Essence of Earth, and Essence of Undeath are no longer account-wide.
      CLASSES
      Death Knight
      Death Grip never really did what it says and cause death, rather than mere inconvenience to the target, so Death Grip has been renamed Tug Throat.
      Now that everyone is a Death Knight, we’ve added a new Death Knight ability: Directory – activate to hold up a chart that you can compare other players to, in order to figure out what race they are.
      Demon Hunter
      New ranged DPS spec: Tizzy. With a Tizzy DH, you’ll still jump around and make funny noises like there’s a bee on you, but you’ll do it from 40 yards away.
      Eye Beam has been given those new high-intensity bulbs, and now blinds everyone in front of you for miles.
      Druid
      Added a new Druid ability: White Claw – disorients you and frustrates your enemies. It shows up everywhere, even though you’ve never once heard anyone say that they like it.
      Shaking a Druid while in Tree of Life form now has a chance to spawn a swarm of angry wasps.
      Hunter
      Beast Mastery Hunters whose pets do 70% or more of the player’s total damage are now given a comfy bench to sit on during fights.
      Freezing Trap is now 30% less effective on targets who keep a sweater at the office.
      Mage
      Mages who say in voices comms that they’re putting down a portal to Boralus, but then it’s actually a portal to Dalaran Crater, are awarded the Achievement “Why Do They Fall For This Every Time?”.
      Blink distance reduced by 50%. You guys really need to tone it down with the Blinking. It’s gotten out of hand. Don’t make us turn this Blink around and go right back where we came from! Stop Blinking! I’ll give you something to Blink about!!
      Monk
      Ironskin Brew and Purifying Brew are now noticeably less hoppy than they were a few years ago during the hops craze.
      New Mastery: Savasana. All Monks have transcended to an elevated state of being, where the answers to all problems are beyond the need for violence. Monk characters are prevented from casting any damage-dealing abilities or using any attacks whatsoever. Namaste.
      Paladin
      Lay on Hands no longer causes your hands to get all tingly and numb and then you wake up and shake them and they feel so weird.
      Divine Steed updated to look less like you’re just running away from a fight, except when followed by the use of Divine Shield and Hearthstone.
      Priest
      Xal’atath, Blade of the Black Empire voicelines updated in the hopes that you’ll start using it again. You used to be so close and nowadays you barely even see each other. Baby please come back.
      Corrected an issue that would occasionally cause Holy Word: Serenity to take the sky from you.
      Rogue
      Rogues who save their Sap can now make it into a nice syrup.
      Rogues who use Cloak of Shadows, Vanish, and Shadowstep in rapid succession now disappear from the game altogether.
      Shaman
      No adjustments needed. Warlock
      Seed of Corruption must now be planted in the correct time of year and moisture, or else it will become Flowerpot of Disappointment.
      Doom duration increased to be a really long time, but not so long that you’d call it eternal.
      Warrior
      Heroic Leap now occasionally ends in a pirouette.
      Pummel now looks even more misspelled if you stare at it.
      WoW CLASSIC
      Following a tremendous amount of feedback, we’re happy to announce that WoW Classic now comes in three new old flavors:
      WoW ORANGE VANILLA
      CHERRY WoW CLASSIC
      DIET DR. CLASSIC
      There are no changes to WoW Classic in this patch.
      Here come the April Fools official patch notes!
    • By Stan
      Jaina Proudmoore drops two Glacial Tidestorms until the release of Shadowlands and there's a Discord community named Jaina's Buddies to help you get the mount.
      The idea of the community is to gather people with high item level to overgear the content and make multiple weekly clearing groups for the mount. Join Jaina's Buddies if you want to get your Glacial Tidestorm before the drop rate is reduced to 1%!
      Glacial Tidestorm
      Though she commands a variety of magical powers, Jaina has always been most proficient at summoning powerful elementals of water and ice.

      Here come this week's first hotfixes, with the already announced Legion legacy loot rules along with some more visual tweaks to dungeons, specifically Ashvane Warden in Tol Dagor.
      March 31 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Ashvane Warden The ground visual for Lockdown should remain visible when Projected Textures is disabled in the System Settings menu. Ashvane Warden The ground visual for Lockdown should remain visible when Projected Textures is disabled in the System Settings menu. Items and Rewards
      Legion Raids and Dungeons [With regional restarts] Legacy loot rules are now in place for Legion raids and dungeons. Developers’ note: Standard encounters drop an amount of loot scaled by the amount of players in the raid, which results in fewer pieces for players who defeated encounters in small groups or as a solo player. In Legacy loot rules, raid and dungeon encounters will drop a fixed quantity of class-agnostic loot, regardless of the group size.
