While we're still waiting for servers to come back online, it's time to update your addons!
Download and install WoWUp. Launch WoWUp and visit the "Get Addons" tab. Make sure you have "Retail" selected in the dropdown. Click on the Install button next to the addon you'd like to install. Don't forget to install or update essential addons, including Bigwigs / Deadly Boss Mods for dungeons and raids, Details!/Recount for healing/DPS meters, WeakAuras, etc. Launch the game when the servers are back up and enjoy the pre-patch!
Today, we're looking at an awesome addon that transmog collectors will appreciate. It's called Better Wardrobe and Transmog, and it lists sets not found in Blizzard's default set list, and much more.
The addon adds an "Extra Sets" tab with sets that you won't find in the default list, and it's mainly intended for transmog collectors that want to see the missing pieces. Extra Sets will also be added to the transmog selection window, including incomplete sets. You can easily set your set as favorite or queue it for transmog. You can download Wardrobe and Transmog here. You can also support the developer on Patreon.
Well this one was quite the disappointment. After the event that caused low-level Blood Elf towns to get overrun by the Scourge turned out to be just a systemic issue with the scaling, today's visit by the undead also ended up less exciting and cool than it seemed.
As noticed by anthelior, the pre-patch brought quite a few new zombie corpses to Redridge Mountains that definitely weren't there before.
This sparked some speculation if this was related to the upcoming pre-patch Scourge invasion event, as the corpses look exactly like the ones from the event. Unfortunately the excitement didn't last long as people in the thread were quick to note that yes, the bodies were added in the pre-patch, but that's most likely because they're related to a Kyrian quest that's coming in Shadowlands! You can check out the relevant part below, with spoilers for the Kyrian campaign:
And so we're still left wondering when the actual event is coming, as it's not only the Scourge invasion part that's interesting, as the Shadowlands preamble with World Quests, World Bosses and big 36 slot bags is also part of it! The event is set to last 2 weeks, but its second week could be extended to last longer - and if Shadowlands is coming in December as we speculated, we might still have a couple of resets to wait for the event.
Some strange synchronicity today as multiple players have managed to level their characters without ever choosing a spec. Now while that might sound like a relatively minor inconvenience due to the missing abilities, it turns out it's much more difficult than that. The thing making this possible is the fact that you don't get forced into a spec anymore, there's just the warning to choose one, which you can ignore.
Three separate players have done this, each seemingly completely unaware of the others, and posted their accomplishment on reddit. The feat is made significantly harder by the fact that, according to one of the specless, in addition to losing the spec's abilities, mastery, talents and PvP talents, you also don't scale up properly past level 10, which is when you were supposed to pick your spec. Apparently leveling like this goes ok-ish until around level 40, when it can take several minutes to down even one mob.
The first of this new specless breed was willwarb, who is a Warrior (and nothing else!), who didn't have as much trouble in the higher levels (or at least didn't mention anything about it) and managed to get it all done in around 16 hours.
Then we're on to Aaera the specless Rogue, who took the easier way out, mostly leveling via dungeons and battlegrounds after level 20, with many players commenting on the extremely low DPS, which was about 5% of the dungeon group. And while Aaera thought the character was the World First weakest character, it wasn't to be.
Finally we're on to aldarenn1 the specless Monk, who actually pushed through the latter levels alone, but had a much harder time with the class than the specless Warrior, taking 5 minutes to down mobs with Spinning Crane Kick and Effuse.
And so a new breed rises in Azeroth, following in the footsteps of Doubleagent, the factionless max level Pandaren. They are the purest form of their class and showed great determination in reaching the top with as few tool as possible, all in service of... well nothing really, but it's still cool!
The daily hotfixes continue and it's another solid batch this time around, with class, raid, item and quest fixes.
