The following class now has Anima Powers and can venture into Torghast:

  • Death Knight

The following classes have received new Anima Powers:

  • Demon Hunter
  • Warlock

Two new cell blocks are now available in Torghast:

  • Mort’regar
  • The Upper Reaches

General Gameplay Changes

  • Death Pools now grow more slowly out of the corpses of the Deadsoul.

  • Skeletal Cauldrons can now be destroyed by interacting with them.

  • Skeletal Remains now move 50% slower.

    • Developers’ note: This should introduce a little more counterplay to these skeletons, especially for melee characters who have had trouble outrunning them.
  • Brokers on short floors should no longer be in trap distance.

  • Many traps and enemies have been removed from the beginning of floors, where they might reach players in the safe area.

Torments

  • Torment: Eye of Skoldus Torment: Eye of Skoldus and Torment: Fracturing Forces Torment: Fracturing Forces will now wait longer after a player leaves combat before checking to call in ambushers.

    • Developers’ notes: Over the last week, we’ve read and heard a lot of feedback on this part of Torghast, most of which has been focused on the concept of timers. Please see our recent post on this subject which begins with, “We agree that one of the best things about Torghast is that you can play at your own pace, without feeling rushed. We certainly don’t want to make Torghast into a fast-paced, timed game mode.” We’re working on more changes to Torments and all of Torghast; please stay tuned!

      3D Artist Dronmo has created a jungle in Unreal Engine 4 inspired by Stranglethorn Vale.
      Here's a comparison of the Stranglethorn Vale in World of Warcraft and the recreated version of the zone in Unreal Engine 4 taken from ArtStation.

      Here's another comparison of the zone.

      The artist teamed up with his friend, a guitar virtuoso, who produced ambient relaxing music for the video.

      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas tweeted about why Blizzard ended up allowing Blood/Void Elves to have blue eyes, even though he said they were only intended for NPCs in the Zoltan Interview a while back.
      Earlier this week, we looked at new Blood Elf/Void Elf customization options coming in the Shadowlands expansion, and much to our surprise, they included new blue eye color options, allowing players to technically become High Elves in the game.

      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas replied in a tweet that they had a conversation with the team about new customization options and the recent blog is what they ended up with.

      I think @WatcherDev honestly knew for a while about the eye change options coming and still said it was NPCs only just to get a bit more of a laugh about it. I can say Id for sure do the same thing. Good that player agency is a priority again though.
      Honestly that was the plan at the time, but the game is vast, so specific questions often go unexamined while attention is elsewhere. After that interview, the team spun up a fresh conversation about BElf/VElf customization options, and the recent blog lays out where we ended up.

      Blizzard released a short story written by Madeleine Roux, author of the upcoming Shadows Rising novel, about a memorable night in which Regent Lord Lor'themar Theron and First Arcanist Thalyssra share stories, poetry, and arcwine.
      You can read the short story online or download it in PDF format.

      “War has come, war will come again, I am old enough to have watched my people rise and fall and rise once more, and I myself have withered like the winter tree before blossoming anew.”
      A new World of Warcraft short story is now available to read: A Moment in Verse!
      First Arcanist Thalyssra and Regent-Lord Lor'themar Theron set aside the troubles of their individual worlds to spend one beautiful evening in a contest of verse—and in each other's hearts.
      We’re excited to share this bright and charming new tale by Madeleine Roux (author of the upcoming Shadows Rising novel) with everyone, and we hope you enjoy a brief escape into the tranquility of Suramar. Read it now
      Stay safe and healthy, everyone!
