Eye of the Jailer Mechanic Within the Maw in Shadowlands

Recommended Posts

d4wn5i4.jpg

Eye of the Jailer Eye of the Jailer is a debuff that will be placed on players while they are in the Maw for extended periods of time, and you will need to clear the debuffs by participating in content outside of the Maw in the new expansion.

In the Paul Kubit interview, we learned that players won't be able to endlessly farm Torghast and be inside the Maw, due to debuffs that need to be cleared by participating in other Shadowlands content. In the spells database, we found multiple spells that add points toward clearing the debuffs (Eye of the Jailer: Add Points Eye of the Jailer: Add Points).

It seems there will be multiple tiers of the effects, so maybe they will grow in power with time while you remain within the Maw.

The Maw Debuffs

The following debuffs will be active while you are in the Maw for extended periods of time, acting as some sort of gating for Torghast, because you will be farming keys in the endgame zone to enter the Tower.

Sooo like corruption 2.0? Or maybe sanity 2.0... either way a limit on doing the tower stuff, yay...

Yeah, it's like Corruption debuffs used for zones. I'm not a big fan of these gating mechanics either, I think it's perfectly fine if there are players who want to spam the Tower 100% of the time, they should imo let that happen and let everyone enjoy the game as they want.

This is not even for the tower but the open world part of the maw as far as i know. Also they are not limiting the tower ppl will cry they have to farm endlessly like any similar feature.

The Tower will have a key system, and you will be able to buy these keys with the Maw currency, so limiting people from spending time in the Maw with the debuffs results in fewer Tower runs.

Exactly...I keep pointing it out, but I'll repeat; The best, most successful system Blizzard ever added to WoW since vanilla was the Mythic+ system.    It has no real barriers on entry (you can earn your own key or just queue and join for someone else's), is spammable, is something that with skill and effort can be used to get high ilevel gear, and has no grinding sub-system required.    

They really need to step back and realize that creating sub-grinds and other gating on "fun" stuff makes the fun stuff less appealing.

      It's now official! Blizzard said they plan to add more Warband screens to the game in the future.
      As datamining suggested, we will, in fact, get more Warband screens in the future.
      The official Warband preview mentions this and while we are not certain how they will be obtained, it's nice to know we won't be stuck with just 1 screen for the rest of the expansion!
      (Source)
      You can assign four characters to one scene, with more scenes planned for you to collect in the future. In addition, to make it a little easier to see who's who in your Warband at any given moment, there’s additional information about each character during character selection.

      Hurricane is back with an epic short showing what World of Warcraft would look like if it was about racing!
      In the YouTube description, Hurricane mentioned that this project has been his personal endeavor for the past 7 months. He and his team have worked on it to enhance their 3D skills and test various 3D pipeline tools and scripts for WoW machinima creation.
      The project features 23 individual shots, each crafted in Cinema4D and rendered using OctaneRender on two RTX4090 cards.
      For those interested, Hurricane also released a making-of video of World of Racetrack.
