10 Things to Do Before Patch 8.3 Goes Live

Recommended Posts

ApHqYDT.jpg

Patch 8.3 will go live early next year and we compiled a list of things to do over the holidays to keep you busy.

1. Achievements

Some achievements are going away in Visions of N'Zoth, so don't forget to defeat Queen Azshara on Heroic or Mythic difficulty and complete all Mythic+ dungeons at Keystone Level 10 or 15 before the update goes live.

Blizzard has reworked Deepwind Gorge in Patch 8.3 and Master of Deepwind Gorge Master of Deepwind Gorge will be replaced with Master of Deepwind Gorge Master of Deepwind Gorge, so the old achievement will likely be transformed into a Feat of Strength.

2. Level Your Alts

Korakk's Revenge is a great way to level your characters of level 60 and above. You have until January 8 to get ahold of the Obsidian Worldbreaker Obsidian Worldbreaker mount during the Anniversary Event.

3. Cap Reputation Paragon at 19,999

Heart of Azeroth Heart of Azeroth level is increased to 75 and the Artifact Power grind begins yet again. You can cap Reputation Paragon at 19,999/10,000 for all factions to save 40,000 Artifact Power when Patch 8.3 goes live.

4. Complete Unlock Requirements for the New Allied Races

Mechagnomes and Vulpera are the latest pair of Allied Races that will become playable in Visions of N'Zoth, but in order to unlock them, you must:

5. Farm and Hoard Seafarer's Dubloons

Don't spend your valuable Seafarer's Dubloons until Patch 8.3 goes live. Blizzard is adding new dubloon traders who sell Island Expedition and Invasion crates which contain mounts, battle pets, and cosmetic items from Island Expeditions.

6. Reach Exalted with Goblin & Worgen Factions for Heritage Armor

Players with a maximum-level character goblin or worgen who are Exalted with their faction (Bilgewater Cartel or Gilneas respectively) will be able to embark on a new questline for their Heritage Armor.

7. Farm and Hoard Profession Resources

Surprisingly enough, there are no new resources in Patch 8.3, just recipes, meaning you can farm fish, herbs, ore, and leather in advance to sell them when the update hits live servers to maximize your gold gain.

8. Work on Your Legendary Weapons

In Visions of N'Zoth, you will be able to transmogrify the following Legendary weapons:

Note that obtaining a Legendary weapon in World of Warcraft takes multiple weeks due to RNG and gating, so it would be best to start working on those weapons ASAP. You can find more information about restrictions here.

9. Cap Rustbolt Resistance Paragon 

 Rustbolt Resistance Insignia Rustbolt Resistance Insignia can be used for Reputation Paragon only until Patch 8.3. In the coming update, the insignia will be changed to grant 100 reputation with the faction only until Exalted (Rustbolt Resistance Insignia Rustbolt Resistance Insignia).

10. Farm Prismatic Manapearls

If your main has reached Revered with the Nazjatar factions, you will be able to purchase Bind to Account reputation-increasing tokens for your alts for 20 Prismatic Manapearls each.

You can cap Reputation Paragon at 19,999/10,000

How can you check what your paragon rep is at above 10,000? The default UI just shows that you need to go get the paragon reward once you hit 10,000.

There is a addon it's called paragon reputation 😄

Found correct information about the addon name

+ i think, that there is a mistake and should be 9.999/10.000 🙂 and even without addon/s ,with default UI you can see how much rep you need to get your reward (just point your cursor at the bag next to your rep. and it should show you your current standing like 5425/10000 and so on)🙂

It goes up to 19999/10000, not a mistake, but you need an addon to see progress after you reached 10k

Totaly forgot, that it can go over that 10.000 value (so only up to 19.999), so basicaly, i will have one emisary reward ready + just 1 rep point away from 2nd reward from that same faction…. 8 factions x 2rewards = a lot of azerite + gold + war resources 😄 (still will check, if normal Blizz UI doesnt show more than 10.000 reputacion to be sure, but know that ElvUI show that + paragon lvl ) 🙂

 You can be 19999/20000 and turn in won reputation Box. However you will still be one reputation short for the 2nd Box because you can't cap at 20000 it stops at 19999. If you go to your reputation section and click on it to where it will show your progress bar it'll tell you how much you have total. All of my reputation except for 2R 19999/20000

Still have 3 more dungeons to complete on a +15 on time to finish the keystone achievement...however with certain affixes in place with rotation of emissaries for Tol Dagor, Waycrest Manor, and King's Rest makes it even more challenging per week.  If I don't complete it before the release of 8.3 I know I'll have to start all over again and do the two Mechagon split dungeons as well. 😕

Transmogrifying legendaries ? Sure Illidan's claive's will be so "legendary" when every single dh wears them. Same applies for daggers on rogues , shadowmourne on dks etc etc.

Considering how common DHs are these days, we are going to see these glaives everywhere. 

As for the list of things to do, a lot of stuff isn't feasible with how people in lfg are these days. Most groups already require to have a curve (even if it's something like normal/transmog run), so in order to get a curve, you would need to have a curve... Plus insane ilvl requirements, often above what drops in that raid, which makes almost impossible to get in even with having good enough ilevel.

There are groups who pug to progress a raid, but mostly people just go with pugs for the gear because their raid isn't doing that particular difficulty. These people don't want to progress on each boss every time they join a pug, which is why people look for curved player to do Azshara on heroic, and still there are curved people who don't know any mechanics. This behavior is kind of understandable, don't you think?

On the Ilvl, I totally agree with you. But this problem also has its roots in the generally low skill and preparation people join a pug with. Most people with low gear have no idea how to play their class. Even high geared players sometimes have no clue. But at least if they have a lot of gear, their auto hits will do enough dmg to meet the dps requirement.

I think it's really sad that if you have the gear and the experience, you don't get invited because the toon you applied with is not your main. Like having CE for a 4/8 M run and then being denied because some ppl can't fathom that there are actually players who can play more than one class/role.

So to sum up, look for a guild that provides all the activities you are looking for and never ever open the LFG tool. Better for your nerves and your time will be more efficiently spent. :)

It is understandable if it's heroic, but I've even seen groups that required curve for normal, as I have mentioned before. That's just ridiculous. Also, LFG still has plenty of those paid runs advertisements, although it's not as bad as in Legion, probably it's the better filtering, at least less sites now.

BTW, I was a regular raider between TBC and Cata (even lead a guild for some time, also had a brief return in MoP), but my raiding days are long over. Trust me, I know it well, as someone mostly playing solo now anyway, finding a guild would have been pointless now, as I wouldn't commit. No one would play with anyone who shows from time to time, you need to get to know people, so those tightly-knit guilds are not an option. Alternative is to join one of those large guilds that take anyone, but these are unorganised and people usually don't interact much with each other, which defeats whole purpose of finding such a guild.

You do have a point there, I also stopped raiding some time ago, and was struggling to find a guild that met my requirements. I raid mythic once a week now, sometimes heroic, but not every id. I log in once a week (for the raid, duh) and that is enough. I do understand that you need to get to know people, and I sure as hell don't want to tell you how to play the game. It just was my experience, that even though the beginning in a new guild can be hard, it's still better than using the LFG tool for a lot of reasons.

But hey, that's just my opinion. :)

It's all fine, glad it worked out for you. Mythic usually requires more dedication, so that's not an option for me, depends also what region/faction you are on, as Alliance raiding is pretty dead on higher end of raiding, except for Oceania from what I've read(even lower seems to suffer a bit from smaller recruitment pool), since many guilds have switched. It's like this in Europe for sure.

      Lunar Festival is back and we have a new quest line this year that lets you transmogrify your flower crowns all-year-round.
      Lunar Festival Updates in 2020
      Lunar Preservation is a new quest which requires you to perform the Rite of the Moon at the moonwells in Ashenvale, Felwood, Feralas, Moonglade, Stonetalon Mountains, Duskwood, and Mount Hyjal, without letting the Blessing of the Moon expire. If you manage to bless the Staff of Moonflowers and transform it into Blessed Staff of Moonflowers, the druid will enchant your flower crowns so they never die, and you can transmogrify them year-round!
      Crown of Boundless Courage Crown of Eternal Memorial Crown of Everlasting Fortune Crown of Infinite Prosperity First, complete the Lunar Rocket introduction quest to teleport to Moonglade. Then, talk to Myrael Lunarbloom at 53, 36 in Moonglade to pick up the quest. Go to the first moonwell at 48, 33 and click the action bar to charge your Staff of Moonflowers. You will receive a 60-minute buff (Blessing of the Moon) and must visit the following moonwells before it expires:
      Ashenvale: 54, 46 and 60, 73 Duskwood: 49, 33 Felwood: 44, 28 Feralas: 60, 46 Hyjal: 61, 25 Note that you must first complete Magni's (A Fresh Trauma) quest line in Hyjal before charging up your staff, otherwise, it won't work. We're not sure if this is intended, but it's best to leave it here before it gets hotfixed. Moonglade: 48, 33 Stonetalon Mountains: 42, 18 Recommended Path: Moonglade > Felwood > Hyjal > Ashenvale > Stonetalon Mountains > Feralas > Duskwood 
      The timer on the buff will refresh to 60 minutes every time you charge up the staff, leaving you with plenty of time to finish the quest.

      After finishing the quest, use your Lunar Festival Invitation to head back to Moonglade tu turn in the quest. 
      The new quest is not required for To Honor One's Elders. Check out our Lunar Festival guide for more details about the event!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Every year the druids of Moonglade hold a celebration of their city’s great triumph over an ancient evil. During the Lunar Festival, citizens of Azeroth have the opportunity to honor their elders by celebrating their sage wisdom, sharing in magnificent feasts…and of course, lighting fireworks.
      The celebration has begun in Moonglade, and your Lunar Festival Invitation is waiting. Join in the fun by dressing up in your Lunar Festival finery, launching fireworks, and paying homage to the Elders throughout Azeroth.
      When: January 24 – February 7
      Where: Moonglade, with camps in Ironforge, Stormwind, Darnassus, Thunder Bluff, Orgrimmar, and the Undercity*
      Currency: Coin of Ancestry
      Activities
      The Lunar Festival is a time of celebration for the peoples of Azeroth. At the beginning of each year, elders of generations past manifest around the world to impart their wisdom upon all who listen. Should you encounter these venerable spirits in your travels and take the time to heed their words, they may even pass along tokens of their gratitude—Coins of Ancestry, the lessons of a past age in physical form. Gather enough Coins of Ancestry and the Cenarion Circle will open their stores of celebratory garb, fireworks, trinkets, and recipes!
      The Cenarion Circle has good cause to celebrate, for the Lunar Festival marks the return of many Ancients that fell in battles past: Goldrinn, Malorne, Aviana, and Cenarius himself. But this celebration is darkened by the eternal torment of one of their own—Omen, a wolf Ancient blessed by the moon goddess Elune, has risen from the depths of Moonglade’s lake. Though Omen was once as noble and proud as any Ancient, he was driven mad by the Burning Legion’s tainted magics during the War of the Ancients. Omen’s immortality means that he is forever cursed to return in his maddened state at the advent of each new year—and this year, he has grown further in power.  Heroes level 20 and above must make haste to ease this tormented Ancient’s suffering, in the hopes that perhaps next year he will return with a clearer mind.
      SEASONAL BOSS: OMEN RETURNS!
      The great wolf Omen was once a hero of this world. An embodiment of strength and fortune, Omen fought beside the heroes of the War of the Ancients until he succumbed to demonic magics. Turning against his allies, he raged across Azeroth, leaving death and terror in his wake. Omen was finally defeated in Moonglade, and he now sleeps among the silt of Lake Elune'ara. But each year, at the beginning of the festival, he stirs...
      MAIN QUEST LINE
      The celebration begins with an introductory quest, The Lunar Festival. The Cenarion Circle has invited all denizens of Azeroth to take part in the celebration of the Lunar Festival. You can learn more about the event by meeting with the Lunar Festival Harbinger.
      It wouldn’t be a celebration without fireworks. You’ll be asked to buy some Lunar Fireworks and Cluster Fireworks to launch and complete the quest Lunar Fireworks.
      Once you’ve proven your pyrotechnic prowess, you’ll receive your Lunar Festival Invitation to travel to Moonglade and speak with Valadar Starsong in Nighthaven. With your invitation in hand, you’ll be able to travel quickly to Moonglade by standing within Greater Moonlight throughout the holiday.
      Achievements
      The Lunar Festival features has 16 achievements and one meta-achievement.
      Elune's Blessing: Complete the Elune’s Blessing quest by defeating Omen. Frenzied Firecracker: Shoot off 10 Festival Firecrackers in 30 seconds or less. Lunar Festival Finery: Purchase a festive pant suit or festive dress with Coins of Ancestry. The Rocket's Red Glare: Shoot off 10 Red Rocket Clusters in 25 secons or less.  Coin of Ancestry There are five achievements involving Coins of Ancestry: Receive a Coin of Ancestry, Receive 5 Coins of Ancestry, Receive 10 Coins of Ancestry, Receive 25 Coins of Ancestry, and Receive 50 Coins of Ancestry. It's a good time to travel Azeroth, see the sights, and pay your respects to the various Elders. Visiting an Elder will reward reputation with select capital cities, a Coin of Ancestry, some experience and gold, and a Lucky Red Envelope.

      4 days running now, we have a new batch of 8.3 hotfixes including a couple of changes to the N'Zoth encounter, more corrupted item tweaks, no more cloaks from emissary caches and more. We also get one of the announced Classic AV changes with honorless targets no longer being lootable.
      January 24 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      N’Zoth, the Corruptor Fixed a bug where Azeroth's Radiance could shorten its channel duration without the player casting or moving. Azeroth's Radiance now resets its cooldown on a wipe and at the start of the encounter. Developers’ note: This quality-of-life change should dispel confusion about needing to wait for the cooldown to clear before a subsequent attempt. Horrific Visions Fixed an issue wherein Emergency Cranial Defibrillation didn't heal the player while under the effects of Inquisitor Darkspeak's Convert. Items and Rewards
      Emissary equipment caches no longer reward cloaks during Battle for Azeroth Season 4. The power of the following trinkets from Ny’alotha, the Waking City have been increased by around 10%: Vita-Charged Titanshard , Void-Twisted Titanshard , Humming Black Dragonscale , and Manifesto of Madness . The damage absorb effect of the Void-Twisted Titanshard will now be consumed after most standard damage absorb effects. Corrupted Items Glimpse of Clarity will no longer interact with the Warlock ability Command Demon , or the Hunter ability Command Pet . Lash of the Void Lash of the Void ’s (Corruption Effect) damage now scales with the item level of Unguent Caress , instead of the character's Attack Power. Fixed a bug which caused Lash of the Void to trigger more often than intended, but it still strikes all targets in a cone in front of the user. Heart of Azeroth Corrected several issues with Destruction Warlocks using Vision of Perfection either not getting an Infernal to spawn on their target, or a real summoned Infernal to incorrectly have the lowered Vision of Perfection duration applied to it. WoW Classic
      Players in Alterac Valley with the Honorless Target buff will no longer grant loot.
      Previous hotfixes:

      The big hotfix lists continue today as we're in day 3 of the streak. We have raid fixes for the final two bosses of Ny'alotha, focusing on some legendary cloak issues and N'Zoth sanity issues, corrupted item damage now scales with their item level instead of a players attack or spell power, a Vulpera racial fix and more!

      The Lash of the Void corrupted item tweak they announced earlier isn't listed here with the the others though, so it's unclear if the hotfix isn't in the game or it was just not added to these notes.
      January 23 (source)
      Allied Races
      Vulperas’ Bag of Tricks (racial) cooldown is now correctly modified by haste. Creatures and NPCs
      Lorewalker Cho should once again be visible to all players in Vale of Eternal Blossoms. Dungeons and Raids
      Operation: Mechagon In Mechagon Junkyard and Mechagon Workshop on Mythic Keystone difficulties, end-of-run chests now award Engine of Mecha-Perfection, or Blueprint: Perfectly Timed Differential, or Progression Sprockets for players’ Vision of Perfection (Essence). Ny'alotha, the Waking City Carapace of N’Zoth Resolved an issue where using Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve while in the Den of Transfusion may fail to bring players to Wrathion's side. Resolved an issue where using Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve could remove some player buffs when used. Resolved an issue where Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve's cooldown was not being reset upon the encounter starting. Reduced the health of Mycelial Cysts by 30%. N’Zoth the Corruptor Dispelling corrupted mind should not drain sanity ever, and letting it expire naturally should. Horrific Visions
      Fixed an issue where players on the quest “Reconstructing ‘Fear and Flesh’” who skipped all Corrupted Area objectives and completed a Lost Area objective first would not get 1 of their 2 Torn Page of "Fear and Flesh" for that run. Items and Rewards
      Corrupted Items Damage dealt by Infinite Stars, Twisted Appendages, and Gushing Wound (Corrupted Effects) is now based on the item level of a Corrupted item, rather than scaling dynamically with Attack Power and Spell Power. Developers’ note: Previously the damage dealt by these powers was modified by Attack Power and Spell Power, which meant that certain specialization abilities or random bonuses could cause drastic swings in their effectiveness. Infinite Stars in particular was too strong against single targets as a result of this and other factors. This change also adjusts Infinite Stars base damage accordingly, as the scaling method was one of the primary factors behind some of the extreme outliers we saw in our logs and from player feedback. Our goal with this change and other adjustments to Corruption powers is to improve parity in the effectiveness per point of Corruption of the different bonuses available on Visions of N’Zoth items. Grand Delusions ’ (Corrupted Effect) summoned entity no longer despawns when its owner is crowd controlled by enemy players. Fixed a bug that allowed the Lurking Schemer's Band a small chance at rolling a socket in addition to its baseline socket. Corrupted Gladiator's Spite now has a distinct visual difference between hostile corruption pools and allied corruption pools. Humming Black Dragonscale ’s visual effect should no longer break some animations and will now appear as intended when mounted. Quests
      Dying during “Waking a Dreamer ” can cause players to be unable to see Goldrinn and turn in the quest. While D.I.S.C.O. may be fun for some, dancing is now prohibited within the vicinity of the Chamber of Heart teleporter. Rugged Hyena Pelts now drop from all hyenas in Uldum as well as Amathet Hunters. Players with the Skinning skill will still be able to skin the hyenas for a guaranteed pelt, in addition to any that drop.

      The damage done by Infinite Stars, Twisted Appendages, and Gushing Wound will be based on the item level of the Corrupted Item instead of scaling dynamically with Attack Power and Spell Power. Lash of the Void damage received the same treatment and now procs less often than it used to.

      With a hotfix that is now live on all realms, we’ve adjusted the damage done by several Corruption Effects:
      Damage dealt by Infinite Stars, Twisted Appendages, and Gushing Wound is now based on the item level of the Corrupted item. This previously scaled dynamically with Attack Power and Spell Power. Lash of the Void damage is now based on the item level of the Corrupted Item, and now procs less often than before. Previously the damage dealt by these powers was modified by Attack Power and Spell Power, which meant that certain specialization abilities or random bonuses could cause drastic swings in their effectiveness. Infinite Stars in particular was too strong against single targets as a result of this and other factors.
      This change also adjusts Infinite Stars base damage accordingly, as the scaling method was one of the primary factors behind some of the extreme outliers we saw in our logs and from player feedback. Our goal with this change and other adjustments to Corruption powers is to improve parity in the effectiveness per point of Corruption of the different bonuses available on Visions of N’Zoth items.
