Recommended Posts

50781-shadowlands-beta-warlock-class-cha

Here is a recap of the latest Warlock class changes from the Shadowlands Beta.

The latest Beta update comes with 2 major Covenant Ability changes.

Soul Rot Soul Rot health cost replaced with a minor Mana cost. The primary target of your Soul Rot Soul Rot takes increased damage compared to the secondary targets.

Decimating Bolt Decimating Bolt only increases the damage of the next Drain Soul Drain Soul for Affliction Warlocks when talented (down from 3). Destruction Warlocks with Fire and Brimstone Fire and Brimstone have the bonus damage value reduced, and for Demonology Warlocks, the buff has been updated to affect Demonbolt Demonbolt, and the Shadow Bolt portion will be removed in a future build.

Warlock

Baseline

  • Decimating Bolt Decimating Bolt (Necrolord Covenant Ability) - Hurls bolts of decimating magic at your target, dealing (200% of Spell Power) Shadow damage and increasing the damage of your next
    • Affliction: 3 Shadow Bolts/3 Drain Souls (if talented)
    • Demonology: 3 Shadow Bolts/Demon Bolts
    • Destruction: 3 Incinerates (This value is reduced while using Fire and Brimstone).
  • by 200%. Decimating Bolt's damage, and the bonus to Shadow Bolt, Drain Soul, Demon Bolt, or Incinerate both increase as your target's health decreases.

Drain Life will also be cast on any enemy affected by your Soul Rot. For the next 8 seconds, casting Drain Life will cause you to also Drain Life from any enemy affected by your Soul Rot, and Drain Life will not consume any mana. Consumes 20% of maximum Health when cast. Costs 0.5% of Base Mana

      Ogrimmmar has tried to express various WoW zones via emojis, and there's a pretty fun guessing game in there as well!
      It's pretty fun trying to decipher the pictograms and where they belong exactly, with some being pretty obvious, and one even being a bit misleading/confusing (see if you can spot that one). You can check out the solutions below the image, and see how well you did (the last one is especially solid)!

      And here are the answers:
      Number 8 was the problematic one, as the author combined Silithus and Uldum, but the rest are pretty much on point. Also, this obviously needs to be a thing for WoW terms in general, as it's pretty fun spotting the intended meaning, and we could use some tougher ones!

      We've seen the rise of the new breed of specless players back in the pre-patch, but now they're coming to Shadowlands as well!
      Jirasonis took things to the next level with a Priest and got to 60 without choosing a spec, but then also continued playing without one! A Black Temple timewalking raid completed, they're now gearing up to actually do Mythic+ and Shadowlands raids as well, without the aid of Holy, Discipline or Shadow! Being specless beings some other endgame issues, however, as you can't pick a Soulbind without a spec due to the way the quest works.

      In case you weren't aware, the Shadowlands pre-patch made choosing a spec optional, as one isn't chosen automatically for you anymore, which saw players get to level 50 in this new way. This also isn't the first 60 specless, as willwarb, who was also the first 50 specless, has already done it, but we didn't quite catch that at the time. 
      Here's what Jirasonis had to say about the experience:

      Blizzard talk about the specifics of the Valor caps and how they will be accelerating them due to the systems late addition, with a 5000 cap to start, increasing by 750 each week. You also won't be able to hoard it, as a character can only hold 1500 at a time.
      Valor (source)
      As we’ve tested and iterated on the changes in patch 9.0.5, we’ve concluded that Valor for Mythic Keystone Dungeon gear would benefit from an immediate kickstart, so we’re adjusting the configuration of Valor caps. This currency is being added well into Shadowlands Season 1, so we want to pace it as though it’s been available for several weeks, giving players a large measure of gear catch-up capacity from the start.
      In 9.0.5, there will be a weekly Valor cap that increases by 750 Valor each week, and the cap will start at 5000 Valor earnable in the first week. In the second week of 9.0.5, the Valor cap will be 5750. In week 3, the Valor cap will be 6500, etc. There will be a cap of 1500 on how much Valor a character can hold at a time. As always, thank you for your testing and feedback.

      The Alliance Castle Nathria Mythic Hall of Fame is finally full, but it appears that a Chinese boosting guild has filled it with many Cutting Edge runs discovered by players through Warcraft Logs.
      The Alliance has filled the Hall of Fame 29 days after the Horde, but according to reports, a Chinese guild named Q728 has sold more than 50 Hall of Fame / Cutting Edge pilots this tier. The alleged boosting occurs in each tier, but it is super obvious this time around.
      Reddit user Drathos1337 provided us with two interesting Warcraft Logs links. The first one links to their rosters and contains hundreds of characters with oddly similar performance on the final bosses after not performing that well on early ones, which hints at pilots. The second link contains their calendar, where you can view the individual runs.
      Many players are calling for a complete overhaul of the Hall of Fame system due to the boosts and Alliance taking a long time to fill it.

      We've seen plenty of WoW recreations in other games, from Minecraft, the Sims and so on, but this is a pretty new one as a part of Stormwind has been made in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater!
      While the details aren't exactly high, the architecture seems to be all there, but more importantly it looks to be a pretty solid skate park, with plenty of places to grind, wheelie and other skating terms I definitely know and didn't google like like ollie, boardslide and darkslide. The music isn't half bad either!
      This particular map is only available on the PS4, however, but it's still damn cool to just look at.
