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.

      7thLetter created a storytelling submission for BlizzConline dubbed "Vengeance for Teldrassil." Unfortunately, it got denied, but the creator uploaded it to YouTube for everyone to enjoy!
      In the short video, we see the Night Elves attack the Horde for what happened to Teldrassil in Battle for Azeroth. We won't go into any more spoilers, so make sure to watch the video yourself!

      It's been a while since we checked in on the Covenant class and spec distribution from wowranks.io, with a lot more Renown opening up, new Soulbinds and Conduits and some balancing passes as well pushing certain specs towards different Covenants.
      The overall rankings haven't really changed, but the Night Fae lead has expanded since last we checked, taking up 35% of the population, as Necrolords languish at the bottom with only 15%. The numbers are also quite a bit higher since we checked a couple of months ago, as over 2.5 million new characters have been registered.

      But the much more interesting data lies with the classes and specs, as we take a look at the Covenant distribution for each of them! As usual Druids are extremely Night Fae-heavy, with 83% of the shapeshifters choosing the Ardenweald as their home, with Hunters and Mages in close second for the Fae, with 73% and 69%, respectively. For the Kyrian the Paladins are holding the line, coming in at 75%,  with Warriors and Priest representing the Venthyr most with only 57/ 47%. The Necrolords get an eclectic combo with Death Knights and Shamans, coming in at 62% and 52%.
      And the least represented Covenant/spec combos are definitely Necrolord Demon Hunters and Paladins, both coming in around 2%...
      Here's the full data:

      Bound Shadehound is a new mount obtainable in Patch 9.0.5 that will work in the Maw!
      All mounts will work in the Maw in Patch 9.1, but you will be limited to mounts that specifically work in the zone until then.
      Currently, on live servers, you either have to complete Layer 8 of the Twisting Corridors to get Corridor Creeper or get the other one (Mawsworn Soulhunter) from "The Hunt: Shadehound" events in the Maw. Luckily, the third and latest addition will be the easiest to obtain. You will be able to forge the mount by collecting Stygia Dust and Silver in the Maw. The new activity is called Stygia Crafting. Here's how the mount looks like in the game.

      "Created by deciphering and performing powerful runic magic, this Shadehound is bound to its creator."

      Power Infusion has recently been a hot topic in the community, with the logs being heavily affected by it, as many non-Priest specs are getting a lot of buffs during fights to boost their overall DPS. There's even some drama surrounding who gets the buff, and Shadow Priests not wanting to give it away, which we've recently talked about, but today there's at least a solution to the logs part of the issue.
      Warcraft Logs have added markers for Power Infusion and Innervate, so you can now see not only if a player received one of these buffs during a fight, but also how many! 

      Warcraft Logs creator Kihra explains in detail:
      This should make it a lot easier to track individual player performances and for players to improve through the logs, as it is now clearer whether someone is just outdpsing/outhealing you because they're playing better, or if they just got a bunch of external buffs!

      The half orc half ogre Mok'Nathal finally get some love, as Lonely Road pictures made some concepts for the race! Rexxar's kind don't get much attention in WoW, but they will be featured in an upcoming cinematic by Lonely Road and so they got some pretty cool models ready!
      One of the characters above is having way too much fun and might just be too cool for Wow. Plenty of players would have preferred this particular race to the slightly more generic mag'har we actually got (although straight-backs are always welcome), so we can hopefully see more of them in the future and give those tauren some size competition!
      Some great work by Lonely Road!
