Recommended Posts

The Mechafun Arcade has been added to the Darkmoon Faire in Visions of N'Zoth, allowing you to play some of your favorite mini-games for the duration of the event.

How to Get There

On your way to the Cauldron of Rock, take the first turn right. The Mechaful Arcade can be found just behind the Darkmoon Faire roller coaster.

Unlock the Darkmoon Arcade Console for the day (requires 1 Darkmoon Game Token Darkmoon Game Token).

Then, you can choose between one of six mini-games. All games will place a buff on you. Right-click it to stop playing a game.

Hexsweeper

The game is a throwback to the popular Minesweeper video game.

This mysterious arcane console lights up under the touch of your hand. Page after page of instructions flitter across the central panel. The language is unclear, but the iconography is self-apparent: Lots of skulls.

This is HexSweeper, a most dangerous game wherein one must traverse an arcane minefield and identify all of the booby-trapped areas. Instant death rewards the slightest misstep.

You wonder why anyone would want to do this for fun.

Rules

You do your best to interpret the pictographs and ignore the persistent warnings about instantaneous death. The HexSweeper console will generate a hexagonal grid, sensitive to one's footsteps. Several of the hexagons are "mined" and will obliterate the player. Alternatively, stepping on a "safe" tile will reveal the count of adjacent mines. The object is to "clear" the field by revealing all of the safe tiles and by marking all of the dangerous ones with the little white flags provided. It's unclear why the game feels it necessary to murder players who step on the wrong tile. Multiple levels are available.

Click a tile once to place the flag or twice when you're not 100% sure there's a mine (a gray question mark "?" will appear above the selected field).

If you step on the wrong tile, you will die (Stepped on a Mine Stepped on a Mine) revealing all the mines.

Rune Matching

Rules

The rules are simple! Match 3 or more runes for points. More than 3 and you get bonus points! If you manage to get 100,000 points, you unlock an additional level of difficulty. If this is set up correctly...

The following difficulties are available:

The game can be reset anytime by clicking on the cube and you win when you earn 100,000 points.

BULL-E (throwback to WALL-E)

Rules

The idea is simple. The game is hard! Uncross the wires to fix poor BULL-E's circuits. There is only one difficulty level: Pretty easy to insane-o hard! Give up and you have to start from the beginning!

The game gets increasingly difficulty depending on the number of wires you uncross.

Barrels o' Fun

Rules

Keep your eye on the barrel! One barrel will flash at the start of each round. Remember which one it is, and pick it when they're all done moving around.

Click on Start a Round Start a Round and remember which barrel flashed at the beginning of a round to move to the next round.

WoWScrnShot_110819_110425.jpg

The number of barrels and their speed will increase with rounds.

Remembery (also known as Shell Game, a Tortollan Seekers World Quest in BfA)

Rules

Flip the shells. Remember where they are, and match the pairs. 

WoWScrnShot_110819_112053.jpg

Only one difficulty of Remembery is available.

Totemic Matrix

To develop harmony with the elements, one must study and understand the interactions between them. The totem matrix is an ancient training method, a puzzle that will challenge one's mind and spirit.

The object of the exercise is to water totems. Simply touch a totem to invoke it. Know that all things are connected, a lesson invaluable in this puzzle... as in life!

Rules

You will be presented with a five-by-five matrix of elemental totems. Some are fire, some water. Your objective is to change them all to water totems. Simply touch a totem to flip its elemental alignment. Ah, but the elements are connected to one another! Flipping a totem will also change the four totems adjacent to it. Through patience, trial, and error, you should be able to coax all of the totems into water totems. You can reset the puzzle if you fond yourself completely lost.

WoWScrnShot_110819_112844.jpg

The goal is to transform all fire into water totems. Multiple stages are available.

      We've seen the crazy Torghast speed runs with players just sprinting to the finish line in a mad dash to the sub-3 minute mark, but today we have... well a different kind of mad dash!
      Gitoff has gone for speed AND performance in layer 12, not only going pretty fast in general (perhaps not as fast as the recent 2 minute 56 second run, but definitely faster than most of us can ever hope to go), but also getting the 5-star flawless score as well!   The immediate comment in the video description? "Wasted at least 30seconds on floor 1 :(" Granted, Gitoff did have a nice little 9-minute Momentum buff ready before entering the run, but that's preparation for you!

      The final hotfixes of the week focus on Shards of Domination tuning.
      July 30 (Source)
      Items and Rewards
      Shards of Domination [With weekly maintenance in each region] Blood Link – The damage and healing amount has been increased at all ranks by 20%. [With weekly maintenance in each region] Winds of Winter – The amount of damage and healing stored by the Winds has been increased at all ranks by ~45%. Developers’ note: The difference between the three Rune Words for the Shards of Domination system is bigger than we want it to be. We have identified and fixed a bug in Winds of Winter which was preventing some damaging and healing abilities from counting towards its total, and we have retuned Winds of Winter and Blood Link so that the relative power between Rune Word bonuses is more balanced. Jotungeirr, Destiny's Call will now reset its cooldown at the end of boss encounters. Fixed an issue where Ticking Sack of Terror could trigger more than intended in the presence of multiple trinkets.

      As the WoW team mentioned in their statement, they have been removing references "that are not appropriate for our world". While we've noticed the /spit emote change on the BCC PTR, most/all of the other content removal seems to be centered on references to Alex Afrasiabi, who was talked about in the Activision Blizzard lawsuit. Today we'll take a look at some of the things already removed from the game and some that remain, as the removal seems to be an ongoing process.
      First off we have many references already removed, with the Fras Siabi and Foror names being replaced by Ezra Grimm and Nostro. There's many more items, NPCs etc. related to the two names above and others, which you can check out over on Wowhead. The most notable NPC change, however, is the one that received immediate retribution from players when news of the lawsuit broke, as Field Marshall Afrasiabi is now Field Marshall Stonebridge. For a longer list of some of the items that have been removed, check out Wowhead's article here.

      Source: Wowhead.
      However, it seems the work is still ongoing, as there are some references that have not been addressed yet, or some that didn't quite go through completely, like the below. You can see the while the NPC's name remains problematic, it is actually changed in the chat window when he speaks:

      Source: MrGraffio.
      While many references to Fras Siabi have been removed from Stratholme, like the mini-boss, quest etc, at least one remains:

      Source: Thekingchem.
      And then there's this very specific one, which might have even gone completely missed if yuvalal hadn't spotted it, as Foror is mentioned in a conversation between two NPCs in the Escape from Durnholde Keep/Old Hillsbrad Foothills Caverns of Time dungeon:

      Source: yuvalal.

      Clearly the removal of references is still ongoing, and even the ones missed above may already be removed from the game when you read this, as Blizzard have a lot of them to go through.

      Blizzard announced some nerfs for Shards of Domination set bonuses recently. They even made it live briefly, but have been reverted, as the devs didn't want to proceed with the change.
      Further Shard adjustments will be made in the coming days, but they don't want to nerf them now that many players have obtained and upgraded them.

      Shards of Domination Earlier this week, a change to the power of Shards of Domination set bonuses (e.g. Chaos Bane) was briefly applied to the live game. We are no longer planning to proceed with that change at all. We may make further adjustments in the coming days, but we will not reduce the power of Shards now that many players have earned and upgraded them.

      Tired of looking up Soul Ash and Soul Cinder costs? Check out this simple macro that tells you how much of each you need to upgrade Legendary items in Patch 9.1!
      If you run the following macro in the chat, you will see how much Soul Ash / Soul Cinders you need for:
      A new Rank 1 and 4 Legendary; Rank 5 and 6 Soul Cinder costs; Soul Ash & Cinders cost from Rank 1 to 6. The macro was created by Shinela and improved by DoverBoys.
      /run local f,r,i,j,a,c=C_CurrencyInfo.GetCurrencyInfo,"\nRank","\124T3743738:0\124t","\124T4067362:0\124t" a=f(1828).quantity c=f(1906).quantity print(r,"1:",i,1250-a,r,"4:",i,5150-a,r,"5:",j,1100-c,r,"6:",j,1650-c,"/n",r,"1 to 6:",i,3900-a,j,1650-c) The following appears in the chat window when you run it.
