Recommended Posts

Blizzard has significantly increased the Hunter stable size to hold up to 205 pets in this week's Alpha build!

  • In Battle for Azeroth, you have 60 empty and 5 active slots, so that's a total of 65 pets you can store.
  • In Shadowlands, the number of empty slots has increased by 140 to 200, allowing you to store up to a maximum of 205 pets.

I should probably tame more pets... I have like 12? in the stable and the 5 I have out, and even then only really use 3, Nether Ray, Spirit Beast, and Silithid...

I play several hunters and I have to say this is Huntarded!  We don't need 200 slots for pets! hell 60 is overkill!  Blizzard should have taken that effort and just given us, all classes,  the option to replace our backpack with any bag we want!, screw attaching an Authenticator for 4 stinking slots, another bag that's what we all would rather have!

Nerd Rage complete!

Do people really even tame this many pets?

99,9% of hunters will never have more than a dozen pets. But I still think it's a nice gesture towards the most enthusiastic 0,1% that run Petopia and other pet-related hunter fan sites - what storage space is Blizzard sacrificing? A few kilobytes per realm? Hell, make it 1000 just to be sure they will never be able to fill up all slots.

If they're adding this many slots, how about some achievements for taming pets... seems criminally absent at this point.

I'm happy to not be part of your 99.9% club. It's fun to be unique! I have had my stable FULL for years. 15 years of WOW hunting...

      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.

      Source.
      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.

      Source.
      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.

      Source.
      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.

      Source.
       
      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.
      October 22 (source)
      Classes
      Hunter General Fixed an issue that caused Feign Death to not cancel an enemy’s spell cast when used towards the end of the cast. Paladin General Blessing of Protection is now learned at level 32 (was level 41). Retribution Retribution Aura now correctly extends an existing Crusade (Talent) without resetting its stacks. Dungeons and Raids
      Ny'alotha, the Waking City N'Zoth the Corruptor Fixed an issue where Basher Tentacles would cast Void Lash more frequently on all difficulties. Items and Rewards
      Blink-Trigger Headgun and Tactical Headgun on-use effects now have a 5 minute cooldown (was 30 seconds). Quests
      Sylvanas Windrunner should now be present in Grommash Hold if you have quests to turn in to her while you're also in the middle of the Vulpera Allied Race questline. Shhh... Don’t tell Tyrande.

      Well, it didn't take long for the pre-patch to come down with end-of-expansion syndrome, which makes sense for this particular one, since we still didn't get the actual event that was supposed to lead us into the Shadowlands (and we're not sure when it's coming either).
      This one may not be as extreme as some of the weirder ones we've seen, and makes sense in general, as any new content is bound to have a speedrun happen sooner rather than later. All this to say: Exile's Reach speedruns have begun! This one is the fastest so far and features heirlooms, with the end point being the turn in of the final quest in the faction capital. Just under 25 minutes is what it took, and there's plenty more class and race combinations to try out and a lot of room to improve!

      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 or through WoWUp Addon Manager. You can also support the developer on Patreon.
