Recommended Posts

A new wave of Beta invitations went out recently, so don't forget to check out the Battle.net dropdown menu for "Shadowlands Beta".

The news comes from multiple Reddit users that recently noticed they got in.

If you haven't received a Beta invitation yet, don't forget to opt-in and remember that there are no keys, so don't get scammed!

As in previous expansion tests, Blizzard does not grant test access to the Shadowlands Beta via any sort of exchangeable key or code. Do not trust any offer of Shadowlands Beta access that comes from any source other than Blizzard.

If you’d like to join us in testing Shadowlands, all you need to do is opt in to become a tester. Players who have opted-in can be selected to be a tester, and invitations will go out regularly throughout the test.

Bought the deluxe edition since WOD => still no *filtered* key ?

It's not a matter of how much cash you throw at them though

What if you're rich but have no skill and progress in the game which makes it irrelevant ? Also there is no key, it's direct access, not knowing that shows how much you care

For some of us older players that have been doing this since before Blizzard switched to controlling it through the Battle.Net app, as well as other game products, 'beta key' is an anachronism and your snide remark is either pedantic, evidence of your own inexperience, or both.

No it's not, it's just a wrong way to talk about what it is. It is beta access, not beta key. And saying beta key is what makes people think there are actual keys, and some might get scammed. And it's also why icy-veins has to make an actual article about the fact that there are no beta keys.

And i'm and "older player" too, you are just wrong.

Maybe google anachronism and pedantic while you're busy being technically correct.

      This one isn't going to hold a big surprise as to how it's done, but it's still pretty ridiculous. As you'd expect the Warrior Leaper legendary power + the PvP Barbarian are the culprits here - well that and the Eye of the Storm layout, but a 10 second cap is still insane.
      Source.
      And that wasn't even the full 6 leaps available! Also, here's another fun EotS interaction, this time with Prot Warrior and "only" 3 leaps, although this one isn't quite as deadly (but it would have been just a little ways up the road) and uses Dragon Charge for the knockback:

      With a very catchy yell, caughtdeadlol had a Torghast Twisting Corridors build that only needed 4 powers to pull off a layer 6 boss literal one-shot, taking down the 11 million HP boss with a 15 million hit.
      That's some pretty impressive 1-hit action by his holiness, and while you do need some relatively rare powers to pull it off, it's really not that complicated. All you need is 3x Cruelty Censer and one Frostbite Wand, with the math being pretty simple there. The Wand is the main issue, as you'll need to get Seeker of Souls to spawn in Skoldus Hall to get it.
      So congratulations to caughtdeadlol on creating a new Priest melee archetype (and hopefully a brand new meme as well - Leeroy Jenkins watch your back).

      We have some more hotfixes, featuring a Pala legendary, Sludgefist and plenty of Maw fixes!
      January 27 (source)
      Classes
      Paladin Reign of Endless Kings (Legendary Effect) cooldown will no longer be reset when the Paladin uses Divine Shield. Covenants
      Venthyr The Thrill Seeker (Nadjia Soulbind) buff can no longer be removed by right clicking the effect’s icon. Her appetite for danger will not be deterred. Dungeons and Raids
      Castle Nathria Sludgefist Protection Paladins blocking Giant Fists should now trigger the damage component of Holy Shield (Talent). The Maw
      Fixed an issue where Souls would not release from their Stone Prison if a player’s pet deals the final blow. Druids can now shapeshift out of the slow effect from Ghastly Willbreaker’s Shatter Resolve. Fixed an issue where Eye of the Jailer: Soul Surge’s ground visual effect was not visible when Projected Textures is disabled in the System Settings menu. Fixed an issue where Shadehounds outside of the Hunt: Shadehounds had tooltips and highlighting indicating that they are part of the hunt.

      Chaoswithinx cleared Torghast's Upper Reaches Layer 8 under 5 minutes and shared a video of their clear.
      The player started speed-running Torghast and managed to find out some crazy strategies, which they used to clear Layer 8 in 4 minutes and 56 seconds with a Marksmanship Hunter. Congrats on the run!

      While advertising boost sales in the chat channels is not against ToS, it is very annoying and by now comprises the majority of all chat that we see in the game. This is without even mentioning the Group Finder spam, which IS against ToS, is constantly being reported, but it's still there, clogging everything up and making legitimate runs harder to find (but has gotten a little better since the ban).
      Luckily there's some solutions, none of them perfect, that can help out.
      Chat Channel Spam Solutions
      There's a very new addon by rowaasr13 called SR13-AntiSpam, which works on the chat channels and using pattern recognition:
      Then there's EasyFilter, which has a lot of advanced filtering options, but hasn't been updated in quite a while (but still works).
      Group Finder
      LFGSpamFilter is a relatively simple one as well and also offers very simple reporting options.
      The Premade Groups Filter addon may not have been made with this purpose in mind, but it helps! The issue is there's a lot of input needed from the player, as you'll have to enter the filters yourselves, and the sellers tend to use non-standard wording so not everything can be filtered out. You can check out some more details on how to use it here, or try some simple filters like this one suggested by chymmi:
      Bad Boy
      We've talked about this one before and it covers both above categories, is an excellent all-rounder with its Group Finder and chat channel coverage, but it's also been known to miss a lot of entries. But it's definitely worth having, as it's the least fuss and gets at least some stuff out of the way.
       
      The only ultimate solution is to install most/all of these and hope they can clean things up enough to make it tolerable, although it seems unlikely we can get rid of all of it, as boosting is a part of WoW now and isn't going anywhere, and whenever there's real money to be made, you can be sure people will push way too far and not go away any time soon.
