War Mode Bonus from 8.3 Daily Quests Removed Temporarily

Recommended Posts

As some players have already noticed, we got confirmation today that War Mode bonuses for Visions of N'Zoth daily quests have been disabled since Thursday. This was done due to a separate issue that will hopefully be resolved in the coming days, when the bonus will be restored.

Check out everything that's coming with the new patch right here and the patch notes here.

    We’d like to confirm that, yes, the expected War Mode bonus for Visions of N’Zoth Daily Quests has been disabled since Thursday.

    This was necessary for our team to work to quickly fix a different issue. Our top priority right now is addressing these concerns, and we expect to restore all intended functionality in the coming days.

    War Mode and the bonuses granted by War Mode in all other content are unaffected.

    Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.

    Hmmm, i wonder if this *problem* was players getting too much of a reward for it in that specific update and since its new, they want them to take longer to get high up and so on, so they are seeing if they can lower it to a point where it takes mind-numbingly long to get without it ticking off the players to the point that they stop playing.

    Yeah that isn't the only thing that is messed up this week. I did a horrific vision, loot the big chest at the end, loot window comes up. NO LOOT. Leave the vision area back to the chamber of the heart, still not loot. And to make things even more fun the vessel that I had bought to do a second one..... GONE. Even put a ticket in. Blizzards answer, well that sucks. We ain't gonna do squat about it though.

    Well they failed there. After two days of quests to "kill 4 rares" I don't feel like logging in.

    Many people might have been "abusing" it beyond what Blizz was intending.

    I'm not sure how? WM bonus only affects the dailies, and not the vision itself, and at 10k a pop for the vessel, dailies alone won't cover it even with WM. Or am I missing something?

    I'm still on an opinion they should simply remove all bonuses to war mode. It shouldn't affect pve, so only those who want to do pvp, would turn it on. There is huge imbalance, doesn't seem like they've even got any solution, as obviously people simply keep piling up on a more populated faction. Besides, some of those new quests have been very buggy.

    The point of the war mode bonus is to compensate for it taking you longer to complete the quests due to PvPing. Not so people who don't wanna PvP will be forced to turn it on for higher rewards. It's not complicated. If you want to PvP, turn it on. If you don't want to PvP, don't turn it on.

    Not exactly, Horde has basically no risk in entering war mode, because they've got the numbers, so they do benefit from their basic war mode bonus without any offset. Most of these people do not want to pvp, they are just turning it on for resource bonus, for pve reasons. Meanwhile, people on Alliance characters are turning it off, because you usually barely see any of them. And this continues, without any solution in sight (other than dividing players into equal groups, rather than factions), so at one point one faction won't see any enemies to kill, it will only get harder to do any world pvp content that requires player participation.

        Blizzard has shipped an encrypted build for Shadowlands Alpha, meaning it cannot be datamined just yet, but we're getting really close to the F&F Alpha announcement. 
        Earlier today, Blizzard added Shadowlands to the Battle.net App Catalog and now the first build has been shipped. Unfortunately, it is still encrypted, so it cannot be datamined at this time. You can learn more about Shadowlands in our overview in the meantime and stay tuned for Shadowlands Friends & Family Alpha!

        We have some news on the much awaited Shadowlands alpha, as MMO Champion have noticed it's actually been added in the latest Battle.net catalog update! It's an encrypted build, however, so there won't be any datamining quite yet and it's most likely just some set up for when the actual Alpha starts, but it's definitely pointing in the "soon" direction!
        We've already speculated on when the first alpha might be coming, with Stan concluding it's due late February or early March, which is still very much a possibility! In any case, here are the strings MMOC dug up:

        The race for the top spots is done, even though there are plenty more guilds progressing on N'Zoth. The biggest news since we last checked in was that both the Corruption affixes and N'Zoth himself were nerfed, and according to the top guilds, when you add both nerfs together N'Zoth got a bit easier. He received a 5% overall nerf and the Thought Harvesters did as well, while the Corruption effect (mainly Echoing Void) nerfs only accounted for around 2-3% of Limit and Method's total damage, and that number significantly drops off for lower ranked guilds, as they won't have had as good gear (with the possible exception of some Asian guilds).
        What that all ended up meaning is that only our Bronze medalist, Pieces, actually downed the Old God before the nerf, with 4 through 10 all getting the slightly easier version. It's a big accomplishment in any case and was hard fought, so let's take a look at the final standings:

        There we have it, one US guild at the very top, 5 EU guilds and Asia staking their claim once more with 40% of the top 10. We did have an upset on the charts however, as Alpha, who have been the top Asian guild for quite a while now and also lead the way throughout Ny'alotha, were beaten in the end by JTH aka JiTianHong! And the other big news is that the amazingly named FatSharkYes took the 4th spot back for the EU, while raiding quite a bit less than their competition. We've also had some more guilds get to 12/12 after the top 10 finished up, with Chinese newcomer Hei Jia Ji just missed out on the top ranking slots, followed by aptly named Korean guild KR, Practice from the EU and finally US second, Big Dumb Guild just getting it done today.
        Let's also take a quick look at the viewership for the race, as it's been affected by the change in leaders, and it's also gotten a pretty big bump since the Eternal Palace. We'll check out the week of the final boss kill specifically, as that's the peak in viewership, and N'Zoth actually saw a big increase from Azshara, but with a different layout. Let's start with the kill-week viewership for Eternal Palace, courtesy of The Esports Observer:

        And now Ny'alotha:

        As you can see Method's event stream kept pretty much the same presence, but the big addition was Complexity Limit GM Max's stream which came through to increase the number of watched hours by almost 50%! Complexity's own event stream wasn't that watched, as the point of focus in the race was Max's stream as Limit was leading the way from pretty much the very beginning of the race, and his stream offered the entire unedited guild communications.
        Finally in this conclusion of race-related events we have a big shakeup for the two top guilds, as Naowh, Limit's main tank for this raid has announced that he's going to be joining Method! In case you weren't aware, Naowh is an EU player and was originally a part of Method's EU MDI team, but joined Limit for Ny'alotha progress.
        The actually bigger news here came with Method GM Sco's post regarding this matter, stating that either he or Justwait will likely be passing their tank spot to Naowh in Shadowlands and will "support the guild from outside the raid during the next RWF". Whether this is referring to the role Limit GM Max took this time around or something different remains to be seen. Here's Sco and Naowh's full quotes:

        And so another race has come to a close and it was a very eventful one, seeing a seismic shift in the raiding world as the US is back on top after an 8 year absence. Limit have been working on this for a long time and it seems the partnership with Complexity was that final push they needed to get there. Battle for Azeroth still ended up being Method dominated, however, with the guild taking 3 out of the 5 raids, with Pieces taking the short Crucible of Storms and now Limit making things interesting with the Ny'alotha win. This marks Shadowlands as a particularly interesting race, with both guilds now having esports organizations behind them and Method being behind for once, so it'll be a thrill to find out if they can recover from this one.

        This week's bonus event is Burning Crusade Timewalking! Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons for the weekly quest to receive a piece of gear from Normal difficulty Ny'alotha, the Waking City.
        Timewalking dungeons drop item level 425 loot. You can get item level 445 loot from Black Temple Timewalking. You can obtain Arsenal: The Warglaives of Azzinoth on your Demon Hunter if you earned the Warglaives of Azzinoth prior. Reins of the Infinite Timereaver has a small chance to drop from all Timewalking bosses as Personal Loot. Blizzard (Source)
        ILLIDAN AWAITS
        Head to Outland to face Illidan and his cohorts once more in The Black Temple!
        The Black Temple raid is available throughout the Burning Crusade Timewalking event. The difficulty is set to Normal and, like any Normal level raid, will not be available through Raid Finder. To take on this challenge, you’ll need to get your guild or a group of friends together, or head to Group Finder > Premade Groups. The raid scales for your group size (between 10 — 30 players) and your level and gear will be scaled back to match the raid’s challenges.
        Want to relive the time you first defeated Teron Gorefiend? Face (face, face) the Reliquary of Souls once more? Witness the showdown between Maiev and Illidan before the final fight? Now’s your chance. Inside you can earn transmog sets, the pets you need for Raiding With Leashes III, a Music Roll: The Burning Legion, and gear drops. And for Demon Hunters, there’s the enticing possibility of obtaining the legendary Warglaives of Azzinoth. Are you, this time, prepared?
        DUNGEONS IN THE BURNING CRUSADE TIMEWALKING
        All week, open Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and then select Dungeon Finder and Timewalking in the Type dropdown. When you hit ‘Find Group’, you’ll be matched up with other players and sent to one of the following Heroic dungeons:
        The Arcatraz The Black Morass Magister’s Terrace Mana-Tombs Shattered Halls The Slave Pens Your character and items will be scaled down to a power level fitting for the challenge at hand, but bosses will yield loot appropriate for your natural level. Timewalking dungeons also have a chance to drop items that usually drop when you run them on Heroic, and you’ll earn reputation with a faction that is interested in the dungeon. For example, when you Timewalk through The Slave Pens, you’ll earn reputation with the Cenarion Expedition, which could open access to purchasing the Cenarion War Hippogryph mount.
        Look for the following all week long:
        Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar or Chronicler Toopa in Boralus has a quest for you has a quest for you. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it from within the Adventure Journal. Quest requirement: Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons. Rewards: Artifact Power and one loot box containing a piece of gear from Normal difficulty Ny'alotha, the Waking City. EVERY WEEK
