Recommended Posts

Reddit user Cryoxene will be running a series of free carry nights on US-Horde for Heroic N'Zoth for the Uncorrupted Voidwing Uncorrupted Voidwing starting today at 8PM EST to raise money for the Humane Society of Tampa Bay.

The mount will become unobtainable when Shadowlands goes live, so if you still don't have it and want to support the cause make sure to participate in the event for a chance to be selected!

You can find a list of all the things that you should do before the pre-patch and expansion hit live in our guide.

Below you will find all the important information about the event, how to join and what the requirements are.

Hello, I am one of the officers of the guild The Outcasts (formerly of Fenris-US, now of Area 52) and I am here to announce our upcoming charity event starting this Friday at 8pm EST. We will be running a series of free carry nights for H N'zoth for Horde (US) to raise money for the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. No donation required for carry, more info below!

Who Are We and Why Are We Doing This:

Some of you may remember us from #Moose-A-Wish back in WoD when we raised money for Make-A-Wish in honor of our guildie, Egon, who passed away in 2016. We gave away 776 Archimonde mooses and way exceeded our $500 goal by raising $6139 for his local Make-A-Wish chapter. Well, it pains me to say we lost a guildie in 2019, Shady, who had a lot to do in helping us with that event. He was, of course, so much more to us than just that though and we refuse not to honor him in the same way.

Shady was an officer in The Outcasts and one of our dearest friends. I cannot exaggerate this guy's kindness. He enjoyed running the moose carries so much, he didn't miss a single one of our 160+ Archimonde kills over the course of ~2 weeks. He wanted us to do another run in Legion with the Argus Spellwing, but our guild wasn't strong enough at the time sadly. We lost him back in BoD and while we're no longer actively mourning, he's left a hole in our hearts that cannot be filled again. We selected our charity for this event based on his love for his cat Lana that we believe he may have gotten directly from this shelter. He loved animals (a true Druid to the end) and we wanted to make sure we honor that.

Important Info:

  • The first carry night will be this Friday, August 21st, at 8pm EST.
  • The Charity supported is the local chapter of Shady's Humane Society (Tampa Bay).
  • You do NOT have to donate to win a carry! Donations are completely optional!
  • The winners will be selected from a raffle held on Twitch. Our chosen guildie representative for this is GrethamPlz on Twitch.
  • Subsequent runs will be announced at the end of each run, but we plan ~1-3 runs per week until Prepatch at which point we will check our strength without corruptions and maybe briefly ramp up.
  • Requirements for a carry are as simple as we can make them and thus far are very similar to #FriendshipDragon.
    • Be level 120 Horde toon with the Legendary cloak (non-negotiable).
    • No ilvl or cloak level requirements!
    • Must need the mount from H N'zoth (Uncorrupted Voidwing).
    • Have a Twitch account to join the raffle on stream during the carry night .
    • Be waiting outside the raid so if you're selected, you can get inside quickly.
    • When we pull, tag Psychus and jump off the edge to die. (We will remove players not following this rule and those who do not tag will not get the mount.)

FAQ:

  • Why aren't you doing sign-ups again? I don't have a Twitch account!
    • I'm sorry, we really wanted to do sign-ups but our last event got 1000+ sign-ups and only 776 people made it in for the mount because the remaining didn't btag us, missed their run, etc. It wasted too much time and with our limited nights available, we want to be efficient. We may do a limited run of sign-up carries post-Prepatch.
  • I just came back to the game and don't have the cloak, why do I need it?
    • Players without the cloak are MC'd instantly when N'zoth is pulled and will not get credit.
  • Can I offer you gold/money/donate in lieu of joining the raffle?
    • No, we will not accept nor entertain any offer like this. We will report anyone offering us money as seeking a Real Money Transaction.
  • I know something about that charity and I can't believe you're supporting them!
    • We've done our absolute best to pick a charity that had benefited Shady in life, but we're not experts. If there's controversy we're unaware of, please inform us and we will consider it strongly.
  • Can I help carry? I'd like to be a part of this!
    • We'd welcome all the help we can get. We ask that potential carriers be of 470 ilvl with solid raiding experience that trivializes H N'zoth. Reach out to me via PM about this. If you cannot help us carry, please feel free to support us with word of mouth!
  • I'd like to support your cause, how can I donate?
    • For now, please consider donating to our fundraiser on the Humane Society of Tampa Bay website. We're also selling shirts for through Customink Fundraising! For those concerned, we will never be able to touch donation money ourselves as it will go directly to our chosen charity from you or Customink.
  • I've got a question not answered here!
    • Please reach out to be via twitter, a PM, or a comment here. We're working diligently on setting up a Discord for community members to join and speak to us directly.

This is by far one of the best things I like about WoW community and you very rarely see it performed in other MMO's.  To those that apply I wish you the best of luck and hope you get your AOTC mount.

      Blizzard just outlined the changes coming to Rogue's Serrated Bone Spike (Necrolord Covenant Ability) in Patch 9.0.5.
      (Source)
      In patch 9.0.5, we’re reworking the Rogue Necrolord Covenant ability Serrated Bone Spike. We’re now testing this set of changes:
      Rogue Serrated Bone Spike initial damage increased by 300%. Resolved an issue that prevented Serrated Bone Spike’s initial damage from dealing a critical strike. Serrated Bone Spike now grants 1 combo point plus 1 per active bone spike after it strikes the target. Serrated Bone Spike no longer refunds a charge and gets removed when the target is healed to full. Serrated Bone Spike is now removed when the target leaves combat. The design intention for this button is: impale your enemy with a bone spike from Maldraxxus, inflicting a permanent damage over time on them. We found that while the ability performed well in situations where multiple targets persisted for long times, it was unattractive elsewhere.
      Greatly increasing the spell’s initial damage should improve its performance in the ‘other’ situations, including those where the enemy doesn’t live very long. However, we then feel we need to address a problem with the ability in PvP. Previously, if the afflicted target was healed to full, the damage over time effect would be removed and a charge of the spell refunded. The way this played out was the effect constantly being removed and charges constantly being refunded. As a result, the Rogue is compelled to constantly hit this button. With an increase to the initial damage component, this could be problematic. So we’re removing that mechanic, and we’re removing the bleed entirely whenever a player leaves combat.

      This week's Patch 9.0.5 Build 37774 was marked as Release Candidate, but when will the patch hit live servers?
      Something really important to keep in mind when determining the release date of Patch 9.0.5 is the maximum Renown cap that we will reach next week.
      Shadowlands Release Week: Renown level 3; Week of December 1: Renown level 6; Week of December 8: Renown level 9; Week of December 15: Renown level 12; Week of December 22: Renown level 15; Week of December 29: Renown level 18; Week of January 5: Renown level 21; Week of January 12: Renown level 24; Week of January 19: Renown level 26; Week of January 26: Renown level 28; Week of February 2: Renown level 30; Week of February 9: Renown level 32; Week of February 16: Renown level 34; Week of February 23: Renown level 36; Week of March 2: Renown level 38; Week of March 9: Renown level 40. Although there are no new Renown levels in Patch 9.0.5, there are a few changes coming to the weekly Renown quests! If you reach Renown 40, the weekly quest to gather 1,000 Anima will give you 1,500 Gold instead of Renown.
      On top of that, if your character recruits the maximum amount of Souls for their Covenant, your weekly quest to rescue Souls from the Maw will give you 500 Anima.

      Once players reach 40 Renown with their Covenant, the weekly quest to gather 1000 Anima will now award you with 1500 gold. Once players have recruited the maximum amount of Souls for their Covenant, your weekly quest to rescue Souls from the Maw will now award you with 500 Anima. Both changes have been outlined in the preliminary 9.0.5 patch notes, which is why we think the patch will release one week after we hit maximum Renown, and that's March 16 for the US region and March 17 for the EU.

      The Peak of Serenity Discord spotted two undocumented Windwalker Monk changes that will likely result in a DPS loss for the spec in Patch 9.0.5.
      Mark of the Crane stacks no longer persist through death and are lost when the target dies, meaning Spinning Crane Kick will deal less damage in Patch 9.0.5. When the Monk cancels Fists of Fury to cast other spells during Storm, Earth, and Fire, the spirits will no longer mimic the Monk's other abilities while also channeling Fists of Fury but will cancel casting Fists of Fury to mimic other spells. You can find the rest of the class changes coming in 9.0.5 below.
       Death Knight  Mage  Rogue Death Knight 9.0.5 Class Changes
      Mage 9.0.5 Class Changes
      Rogue 9.0.5 Class Changes
       Demon Hunter  Monk  Shaman Demon Hunter 9.0.5 Class Changes
      Monk 9.0.5 Class Changes
      Shaman 9.0.5 Class Changes
       Druid  Paladin  Warlock Druid 9.0.5 Class Changes
      Paladin 9.0.5 Class Changes
      Warlock 9.0.5 Class Changes
       Hunter  Priest  Warrior Hunter 9.0.5 Class Changes
      Priest 9.0.5 Class Changes
      Warrior 9.0.5 Class Changes

      Are you wondering how your spec performs in Mythic+? Here's a tier list with all specializations!
      DISCLAIMER
      In this article, we are taking a look at the tier list for Mythic+ based on the data gathered by Benched.me. The site plots all runs available from the Blizzard API (excluding the Chinese region) on a single ridge plot, so it is different from our Shadowlands Mythic+ Rankings maintained by Petko.
      How the Data is Calculated
      To rank all specializations, Benched.me uses something called Meta Ratio Score. The "ratio" is between the specialization's representation in the meta vs. its representation in the population. For example, a specialization makes up 3% of all players in the population, but 6% in the meta, which means that spec's ratio is 6% / 3% = 2.
      Furthermore, the site defines the "population" as all keys level 2 through 15 and the "meta" as keys 16 and above. Based on that, we break down specs into tiers based on their meta ratio as follows:
      S-Tier: Ratio of at least 1.5. A-Tier: Ratio between 1 and 1.5. B-Tier: Ratio between 0.5 and 1. C-Tier: Ratio below 0.5, but greater than 0. F-Tier: Ratio of 0 (the spec isn't present in the high-level bin at all). Spec Tier List for Mythic+
      S-Tier
      Fire Mage - 2.02 ratio Balance Druid - 1.75 ratio Outlaw Rogue - 1.74 ratio Vengeance Demon Hunter - 1.64 ratio A-Tier
      Holy Paladin - 1.37 ratio Restoration Shaman - 1.36 ratio Windwalker Monk - 1.33 ratio Marksmanship Hunter - 1.28 ratio Brewmaster Monk - 1.15 ratio Fury Warrior - 1.14 ratio Discipline Priest - 1.08 ratio Affliction Warlock - 1.08 ratio B-Tier
      Guardian Druid - 0.89 ratio Unholy Death Knight - 0.75 ratio Shadow Priest - 0.73 ratio Havoc Demon Hunter - 0.72 ratio Restoration Druid - 0.71 ratio Blood Death Knight - 0.61 ratio Protection Paladin - 0.53 ratio Holy Priest - 0.5 ratio Elemental Shaman - 0.5 ratio C-Tier
      Enhancement Shaman - 0.47 ratio Protection Warrior - 0.41 ratio Mistweaver Monk - 0.41 ratio Feral Druid - 0.41 ratio Survival Hunter - 0.39 ratio Destruction Warlock - 0.39 ratio Frost Mage - 0.37 ratio Retribution Paladin - 0.35 ratio Assassination Rogue - 0.35 ratio Frost Death Knight - 0.31 ratio Subtlety Rogue - 0.31 ratio Arcane Mage - 0.31 ratio Arms Warrior - 0.30 ratio Demonology Warlock - 0.28 ratio Beast Mastery Hunter - 0.19 ratio
