New Goblin & Worgen Models Coming in Patch 8.2.5

Recommended Posts

Goblins and Worgen will have their models updated in World of Warcraft's upcoming Patch 8.2.5. Blizzard also confirmed they're next in line for Heritage Armor!

Their models haven't been updated since Cataclysm, which makes them the oldest models in the game right now. At last year's BlizzCon, Blizzard revealed a preview of new Goblin and Worgen models, which are slated for Patch 8.2.5.

Note that this is a work in progress and the models we're going to see in 8.2.5 may be completely different.

Goblins

The new model makes Goblins look more neutral and not angry all the time. Blizzard has done a lot of work, improving their limbs, eyes, mouth, and the grin while casting looks really cool.

Worgen

Here we have new Worgen models. The male model looks fiercer and the female model no longer resembles a fox, but I still don't get it why the female model's using Human eyes. It looks way too cartoonish and doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Heritage Armor

In Rise of Azshara, Gnomes and Tauren got their Heritage Armor and the good news is that both Goblins and Worgen are next in line for Heritage Armor with their model updates. If you main a Goblin or a Worgen, Patch 8.2.5 will be really good! Do you like the updated models?

I always thought they don't need updating cuz were already better quality than old models and these were getting updates to get to this level. I don't see much difference on these screenshots tbh.

Edit: Allright I admit they are more detailed and prietter here ?

Wait to pass judgement until you see some in-game/in-engine footage of the models. Screenshots mean nothing.

Look at a female worgen, then look at this picture. There is a huge difference there for certain, as the new model doesn't make her look like a constipated chihuahua.

Would like to see some heritage armor for more played races like Draenei. Barely anyone plays Goblins, and Worgen have lost much of their popularity. Updates for models are nice, although it looks like they aren't adding any new customisation options for them. Goblins would look better (imo) if they had some options to make their faces looks closer to original model (sharp nose, lack of those larger, "meaty" lips).

I would like to see a toggle for Human/Dog form out of combat. Used to be an add-on, but Blizzard changed the code and it has not been working for many years.

Female Worgen still need some tweaking on their models... Their faces and "hair" look weird. I get the idea of using human eyes to make them more "cute", but still.

Also, I hope they improve the animations as well. Never really liked the way the Male Worgen walk and run flailing their arms like Goofy.

As long as they stop snarling all the time I'll be happy. If some people like the always snarling look, let them keep it when they create their toons, but let those of us who truly dislike the constant snarling be able to adopt a more neutral expression.

Not sure what you mean by that...Worgen already have the Racial Active Ability: Two Forms, which turn them from Worgen to Human and vice-versa while out of combat. Since they were introduced in Cata.

Unless you mean some other forms of interaction or such.

yeah, but now you have manually press/click a button every time you leave combat. You auto enter wolf form when you enter combat.  In Cata there was an add-on that put you in human form after combat ended. Blizzard changed their code and add-on stopped working. I find it weird with addition of transmogs, toys and glyphs that there's no option for Worgen players to choose which form they prefer. Just look at all the options a druid has.

Fair enough, I can understand that. Having to manually keep switching back to Human after every little conflict would get annoying after a bit.

They should be able to turn that into a glyph.

      The third Torghast bonus event will become available next week. It's called Unbridled Darkness and turns your screen pitch black for short periods of time.
      Essentially, your first Anima Power grants you a vial of darkness that you can activate. Using it turns your screen completely dark every 5 kills, and you cannot see your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage, healing, and movement speed are increased. The effect dissipates after you kill more than 5 enemies. It is important to note that you cannot enter or leave the darkness manually.
      This is how it looks like in the game when you don't see a thing. For that reason, Unbridled Darkness is also referred to as "Demon Hunter Simulator."

      Here are some spells associated with the event:
      Uncontrolled Darkness - Darkness envelops you every 5 kills, causing you to be completely unable to view your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage and healing done is increased by 150% and your movement speed in increased by 50%. This effect is only removed when you kill 5 more enemies. You will NOT be able to enter or leave the darkness manually. Darkness Rising - Darkness envelops you every 5 kills, causing you to be completely unable to view your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage and healing done is increased by 150% and your movement speed in increased by 50%. This effect is only removed when you kill 5 more enemies. You will NOT be able to enter or leave the darkness manually. Darkness Fading - Darkness envelops you every 5 kills, causing you to be completely unable to view your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage and healing done is increased by 150% and your movement speed in increased by 50%. This effect is only removed when you kill 5 more enemies. You will NOT be able to enter or leave the darkness manually. Vial of Unbridled Darkness - Release the darkness for 15 sec, causing you to be completely unable to view your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage and healing done is increased by 75% and your movement speed in increased by 30%. 90 sec cooldown. Flask of Unbridled Darkness - Release the darkness for 30 sec, causing you to be completely unable to view your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage and healing done is increased by 75% and your movement speed in increased by 30%. 60 sec cooldown. Certain Anima Powers empower Unbridled Darkness in various ways, and we list them all below.
      Unbridled Darkness Anima Powers
      Censer of Suffocating Shadows - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, release a wave of magic every 1 sec, inflicting [ 100% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage to enemies within 10 yds. Tollar's Dancing Garments - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, you have 25% increased dodge chance. Form of Darkness - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, killing an enemy unit extends its duration by 5 sec. Unbridled Darkness is automatically removed from you while out of combat. Wild Flail of Tollar - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, you lash out at the nearest enemy OR player within 5 yds every 2 sec, inflicting [ 400% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage. Globule of Cloying Darkness - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, you have 20% increased mastery and 20% increased critical strike chance. Tollar's Hidden Flask of Fortification - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, your maximum health is increased by 40%. Weight of Darkness - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, you gather 100% increased Phantasma. Sands of Desperation - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, your time flows 30% faster. Oddly Intangible Key - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, you take 30% less damage from area of effect attacks. Tollar's Willful Blinder - The duration of your Unbridled Darkness is increased by 5 sec. Huddled Carvings - Your damage done is increased by 100% if you and an ally within 5 yds are both under the effects of Unbridled Darkness. Harvester of Shadows - If you and an ally within 5 yds are both under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, you heal for 15% of your maximum health every 1 sec. Writhing Shadow-Tendrils - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, your attacks have a chance to cause a dark explosion and inflict [ 200% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage as well as blind enemies within 5 yds of your target for 6 sec. The bonus event does not offer any special rewards, and you can opt out of it by selecting an Anima Power unrelated to Unbridled Darkness at the beginning of each run.

      For some odd reason, a player received a Corrupted Item from the Stockades while leveling, even though the system has been removed from the game in the Shadowlands pre-patch.
      Argoniek received a Corrupted Item (Standard Issue Prisoner Shoes) while leveling their character through a dungeon, which is weird, as Corrupted Items never dropped for low-level characters in the first place. Here's an image the player shared on Reddit.

      Fortunately, the item lacked any Corrupted Effects, according to the player. Just imagine the chaos that would ensue with Corruption Effects on leveling gear!

      With Mythic+ becoming much more relevant and presumably many more players heading in/returning to the dungeons next week with patch 9.0.5, this video going through some important interrupts for all the Shadowlands dungeons is especially useful!
      Interrupting is one of those anger and conflict-breeding things in dungeons, as fights often break out over a player or players (usually DPS) not doing enough of it, and then because of that there can be many spammed interrupts on 1 ability in response, so it's especially important to know what spells and abilities should be focused on. Tactyks goes through all 8 dungeons and said key interrupt targets:   If you want to prepare for next week's Valor Point system and new gear grind even more, you can also check out our Mythic+ dungeon rankings, weekly routes and specific class tips as well.

      After some community outcry over the new changes coming to keystone next week, Blizzard have detailed a new addition to patch 9.0.5, aimed at improving the weekly Mythic+ keystone generated. Players will be getting their first weekly keystone at the same level of the highest completed key from the previous week! Check out the full and detailed explanation:
      Weekly Mythic Keystones (source)
      One of our goals in 9.0.5 has been to address a situation we introduced in Shadowlands with Mythic Keystones never de-leveling. We received a great deal of feedback on our planned adjustment, which is currently outlined in the 9.0.5 patch notes. With this proposed change, we would reintroduce an awkward dynamic where it wouldn’t be possible to sustain running a single Mythic Keystone dungeon per week, even if you always cleared the dungeon in time, because decay would necessitate re-leveling your keys every other week.
      When we created the original logic for Mythic Keystones in 2016, we wanted to make sure that players were getting Keystones that appropriately suited their proficiency in Mythic Keystone dungeons, and we wanted to reinforce the importance of clean and well-executed dungeon runs. Having Keystones decay from one week to the next accomplished both of those goals. However, in Shadowlands, we introduced the Great Vault and more Season-driven tracking of performance in Mythic Keystone dungeons, and we unintentionally disabled the logic for de-leveling Keystones, but the reasons for the original design still apply.
      We feel that the game should compensate players who consistently succeed at a certain difficulty by giving them keys that start at that level the following week, so we’re working on an update to 9.0.5 that should alleviate that concern while still satisfying the goals of the original system:
      In a given week, if you finish a Mythic Keystone dungeon in time, the next week’s Great Vault will contain a Keystone of that same level. So, for example, if your highest Mythic Keystone completion during week one is a +15 that you completed in time, you will get another +15 Keystone from the Great Vault to start week two. If you run that +15 during week two and fail to meet the timer, however, and complete no other +15 (or higher) Mythic Keystone dungeons the rest of week two, you will receive a +14 Keystone from the Great Vault to start week three.
      Thank you for your feedback and understanding.

      With the announcement of patch 9.0.5 arriving next week many players have been asking how exactly the Mythic+ Valor Point system achievement requirements for item level caps will work in regard to alts, and if they'll have to re-do the achievements on each alt.
      Luckily we do have some fairly official information on the matter, as Blizzard did mention this in a group interview with Chinese sites, where Ion Hazzikostas, Ely Cannon and Frank Kowalkowski answered many questions, this one being particularly relevant:
      While we don't have an explicit blue post stating this, and it wasn't mentioned in any of the many other interviews, it does make a lot of sense. However, we can't take this as an absolute 100% confirmation and will have to wait a few more days until the actual patch arrives. But for now it's safe to at least assume alts will be able to upgrade their (newly dropped) Mythic+ gear without having to re-do the long process of getting the Season 1 KSM achievement.
      Here a couple of reddit threads where the matter is being discussed:
      Will I have to earn ksm on an alt to upgrade my items to 220 during 9.0.5? Are the upcoming m+ valor upgrade achievements account wide? And big thanks to Thanks to SoulAwaken for the translation, so we don't have to address alts as "trumpets", as google translate refers to them.
