8.2 Battle Pet Dungeon Preview: Stratholme (Official)

Recommended Posts

WTxw4hQ.jpg
 

Blizzard have another 8.2: Rise of Azshara preview and this time they're focusing on the Stratholme battle pet dungeon! You'll need one level 25 pet for Normal and at least 15 for Challenge difficulty, and you get the quest in Boralus or Dazar'alor. The dungeon is coming with the patch immediately and you won't have to complete previous dungeons to enter.

You'll be able to get new undead, dragonkin and magic family pets in there as well as some pet stones and achievements. For more specifics on the pets and the dungeon itself, you can check out our own preview right here as well.

It’s time to marshal your menagerie and put your best battle pets forward in the undead streets of Stratholme, a new Pet Battle Dungeon with Normal and Challenge difficulties.

To get started on your journey, you’ll need to have earned the achievement All Growns Up! (have one level-25 pet) for Normal difficulty or Pro Pet Group (have 15 level-25 pets) for Challenge difficulty. This will open up a new quest from Tizzy Gearjolt in Boralus or Fuselock in Dazar’alor. You won’t need to complete the previous pet battle dungeons to gain access, and once the upcoming Rise of Azshara content update hits, you’ll be able to play through all four pet battle dungeons in any order.

You’ll find pets from the undead, dragonkin, and magic families in Stratholme. You’ll be able to heal and revive your pets between each of the 12 stages in Normal difficulty, but not in Challenge difficulty.

Defeating the dungeon on Normal difficulty will earn players an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone. You’ll also be able to avail yourself of Manapoof’s aid to teleport directly to Stratholme’s dungeon entrance as a part of the quest reward.

Those who prove themselves to be the very best on Challenge difficulty will earn the achievement Pet Battle Challenge: Stratholme along with the Minimancer pet. Completing Challenge difficulty will count toward a weekly quest that rewards Cleansed Remains, an account-bound currency that you redeem for an Unopened Stratholme Supply Crate filled with pet supplies, or four new pets—Ziggy, Crypt Fiend, Shrieker, and Gruesome Belcher. Speak with Sean Wilkers at the entrance of the dungeon to add one of these spooky fiends to your ranks.

Whether you’re new to pet battle dungeons or a companion-combat veteran, you’ll want to get in on the ongoing story as it unfolds. Who are the shadowy figures that keep appearing in each pet battle dungeon? What chilling experiment are they conducting in Baron Rivendare’s slaughterhouse? Will you come upon an opportunity to take the fight to them?

Discover what awaits your critter pals next in Stratholme!

      Russian machinima makers Kambrio Machinima have recently translated their Hunters video to English. Made in Unreal Engine 4, using WoW assets, it tells the tale of a Human Hunter and a Forsaken Mage and their little discussion on life and un-life. There are some very impressive shots in the intro and the eventual fight is also well done.


      There's also behind the scenes video, made in a pretty cool manner, as an in-world documentary:

      The machinima makers have a bunch of videos on their channel you can check out as well, including this UE4 recreation of Lakeshire:

      There's been plenty of changes to the Nazjatar zone on the 8.2 PTR and we've updated our Nazjatar zone guide!
      First off, the quests have been beefed up, as there are many more present between the main steps for the zone, aka there are more quests between the introduction, getting to the essence quests for the Heart of Azeroth, the bodyguards etc. which makes the zone a lot more fleshed out. A lot of essences are now linked to quests and achievements instead of being vendor-bought, with an exception for the ones tied to specific reputations. The Laboratory of Mardivan event is now weekly. More cinematics added the battle for Nazjatar PvP event is now more fleshed out. For all of the details and new additions, head on over to our full Nazjatar zone guide, and keep checking back periodically, as it's going to keep getting updated.

      In Patch 8.2, all Azerite powers will be unlocked instantly and the progression will shift into Essences that empower your Heart of Azeroth. Learn more about Essences in our Heart of Azeroth Essence guide!
      Table of Contents
      Introduction Components Ranks Heart of Azeroth Slots All Essences Introduction 
      We expect a big overhaul to the Heart of Azeroth in Rise of Azshara. As a result, Azerite powers will be unlocked instantly and progression is shifting to the neckpiece itself. You will be collecting Essences to gain active abilities and passives. You can find more details in the official preview.
      Components 
      All Essences have two components:
      Major Power Component: Mostly active abilities that are added directly to your spellbook. Note that there are some exceptions and for some Essences, the Major Power can be a passive effect. Minor Power Component: All minor powers are passive effects. Ranks 
      All Essences have four ranks, with the final one being of Legendary quality and purely cosmetic. You currently don't need to earn the previous rank to level them up, so you can learn a Rank 3 Essence immediately, before learning Ranks 1 & 2.
      Rank 1 [Azeroth's Undying Gift] provides an ability based on your role (tank, damage dealer, healer).  Rank 2 [Azeroth's Undying Gift] & Rank 3 [Azeroth's Undying Gift] enhance your Essence's Major & Minor Powers in some way. Rank 4 [Azeroth's Undying Gift] adds a flashy visual to the spell that will make you stand out. Heart of Azeroth Slots 
      The plan for Patch 8.2 is to have a single major slot and two minor slots. The second minor slot unlocks at Heart of Azeroth Level 65. An additional major slot will be added later in Battle for Azeroth.
      Major Slot
      If you insert an Essence into the slot, you will benefit from both its Major & Minor Powers. Minor Slot
      Only the Minor Power of an Essence will work when inserted in this slot.
      Note: You can't insert two of the same Essences into the Heart of Azeroth.
      All Essences 
      Here's a list of all Essences as of Patch 8.2 Build 30262.

    • By Stan
      Powers on Azerite Armor will unlock instantly and progression is moving to Essences in Patch 8.2. You can find more info on Essences in our Essence guide. Here's a preview of the new intro questline which involves MOTHER, Magni, and Spiritwalker Ebonhorn. This article contains spoilers.
      The intro quest becomes available right after you establish your foothold in Nazjatar. Magni informs you that MOTHER has apparently found a way to heal Azeroth.

      1. Essential Empowerment
      You learn that the Chamber of Heart has been repaired in your absence.

      2. MOTHER Knows Best
      MOTHER finished her awesome calculations and Magni tells you to talk to her. A not yet implemented cutscene begins to play and MOTHER introduces Essences.
      3. A Disturbance Beneath the Earth
      MOTHER sends you to Highmountain to recover a dragon essence from Neltharion's Lair. By combining dragon essence with sufficient quantities of Azerite within Heart Forge will cause previously undiscovered abilities to manifest within the Heart of Azeroth.

      You'll find Navvarogg and Spiritwalker Ebonhorn at Snowblind Messa.

      Ebonhorn discovered some sort of disturbance and you must investigate its source.
      4. Take My Hand
      The essence discovered by MOTHER may be an echo of power of the dragonflights. You must act fast before the essence falls into the wrong hands. Talk to Navvarogg to get teleported to the area.
      5. Calming the Spine
      The power of the black dragonflight echoes around you, and the earth is reeling in response. You must seal the Azerite Fissures in the Dragon's Spine. You find out about the presence of a stone lord from Deepholm.

      Once you close all fissures and complete the quest, it's time to confront the stone lord. He won't give up the essence without a fight.

      6. Dominating the Indomitable
      You then loot Petrified Ebony Scale. This will be your first essence and serves as an introduction to the new system in Rise of Azshara.

      7. A Friendly Face
      You must now bring the dragon essence to Magni and MOTHER. Navvarogg has prepared an exit for you, but near the entrance, you'll notice a Blacktalon Watcher in stealth spying on you. We covered the presence of Wrathion's Agents in Rise of Azshara in this post.

      Upon arriving at the Chamber of Heart, Ebonhorn is ready to meet Magni and MOTHER.


      8. The Heart Forge
      The final quest is offered by MOTHER and you must use your Heart of Azeroth to activate the Heart Forge. You will receive rank 1 Petrified Ebony Scale and The Heart Forge achievement.

      Don't forget to check out our Patch 8.2 hub for more details about Heart of Azeroth changes coming in Rise of Azshara.
      Essences Intro Playthrough
      MOTHER finished her calculations and the Heart of Azeroth questline continues in Patch 8.2.
