Expanded Dungeon Search Available for Chromie Time

Recommended Posts

52354-chromie-time-expansion-leveling-sp

After choosing an expansion for leveling in Chromie Time, you will be locked to that expansion's dungeons first, but after a certain amount of time passes, the search will expand to dungeons from other expansions.

Chromie Time locks you to dungeons depending on the expansion you've picked, so you won't be able to queue up for dungeons from other expansions unless some time passes and the game asks you if you'd like to expand your search to dungeons from other expansions.

This is new to me, and cool from r/wow

How come no one mentioned dungeon leveling for tanks and healers? I imagine that it would be quite fast. Plus if you pick expansion with dungeon quests inside

Why don't they just allow for us to queue for all expansions by default? Is it really necessary to first wait a few minutes for players that will (depending on your chosen expansion) possibly never come, before you go to join a group that would've probably prefered you to be there a few minutes early as well? It seems like such a needlessly malicious game mechanic.

Well, still better than what we got before, I guess, so maybe we'll get there next expansion. 🤷‍♂️

Probably because it would require them retooling all of the "Icy/Shattered/Tranquil/Otherworldly/Scorched" Satchel of Helpful Goods.

Also, not that this is a fix, but if you're partied with someone in a different expansion timewalking, you gain access to their dungeons and vice versa. So you could just party with a friend, choose different expansions, and then queue in whichever expansion has a better queue time.

You really consider this minor inconvenience to them the most probable reason? They could just rename it to "Satchel of Helpful Goods" without an adjective infront of it and it could contain loot fitting the completed dungeon. No, I am certain there is something else. Is there an official statement on the topic? I am sure this question comes up often.

That's a very inelegant solution for something that should be much simpler. And I just noticed that my original point was wrong. It arguably got worse this expansion actually, as you can only queue for dungeons of a single zone, whereas in BfA and prior it was usually more than that.

I'm considering the fact that there are already multiple iterations of the satchel for each content expansion, with separate drops that some people collect for transmog purposes. For example, pre-squish there was a 15-30 bag, and a 30-60 bag for Classic content.

Transmogs in satchels? Are you sure? How do max level characters farm those?

But regardless, even if that minor sounding thing was as complicated as you make it out to be, so what? Just give the player the satchel that belongs to the expansion the completed dungeon was part of. You queue for a random dungeon and get Ahn'kahet? Here is your Frozen Satchel. You really need a Frozen Satchel? Don't queue random, but for WotLK. 

You said it yourself. With the level squish they had to rework that whole concept anyway, so what is your point? If anything, if what you seem to assume is the reason, then it is even more difficult now to hunt specific satchels, as there is no longer a quick and reliable way to queue for a dungeon that is not part of your chosen add-on.

      One of the cinematics that got us most hyped for its expansion when it first showed up, WoD's upgrade makes it even more impressive! SnazzyAI continues the WoW cinematic improvements, and it's now Warlords' time to both shine and get smoothed out! While the 4K upgrade looks great in its own right, it's the 48 FPS that's the bigger difference here, especially with the orc facial animations.

      It seems the pre-patch keeps bringing us new Scourge invasion-like oddities, despite the event not starting yet! The squish/scaling hits again, this time uncomfortably mimicking the real world, as we have another possible outbreak! This one isn't quite as lethal as the original Corrupted Blood epidemic, and it's a lot harder to spread, but there's still fun/mayhem to be had.
      The actual disease isn't anything new and has bee around a long time, as BlazingShadowAU and their group were doing ICC and when they were done they returned to the Great Seal, where people started dying all around them. They accidentally brought back Necrotic Plague, and the initial outbreak didn't quite last long as the disease isn't nearly as deadly as the old-school Corrupted Blood. However, if you have a group determined to have some fun with it...

      So, Necrotic Plague works differently since the pre-patch, as it apparently scales up quite a bit, to the point of 1-shotting players! Unfortunately this didn't quite work everywhere, and the Orgrimmar fields of Corrupted Blood death were not to be, with the main casualty in Org being the innkeeper and a few players. But, there was a better target available, as the scaling in BfA and Legion was quite deadly.
      It still took some effort, as the plague is on a 15 second timer and keeping the stacks high was part of the fun as it made it deadlier. And to do that you have to spread it to someone by dying, come back and get infected again by someone who has survived - and the higher the stacks get, the harder that is to pull off because players die faster and faster! Dispelling the disease also spreads it, but removes a stack, so there was probably a better way to get this done.
      In the end, the outbreak was limited to just a bit of fun in the Great Seal, as that's where the scaling was highest, and the close-by rez spot made spreading the plague easier.
      Unfortunately the reddit video embeds are still not working properly, but definitely head on over there and check out the full video!

      The stacks were getting pretty high at the end there!

      And so the group had a little bit of fun and there wasn't a full outbreak, with the Lich King's power growing a lot as players were dying all over the place and spreading the disease (perhaps if Bolvar had access to this, we wouldn't be in this whole Shadowlands mess to begin with). The pre-patch certainly continues to deliver on the weirdness, and we can't wait to see what it shows us next!

      The first Mythic Ny'alotha nerfs have arrived in the Shadowlands pre-patch. Blizzard reduced the health of enemies and nerfed Carapace of N'Zoth. More details will appear in today's hotfix update.
      (Source)
      Late yesterday, we made the following adjustments to Ny’alotha on Mythic difficulty:
      Damage and health of all enemies reduced 10%. Carapace of N’Zoth Infinite Void damage reduced by 50% per stack, Black Scar damage reduced by 10%, and Mandible Slam damage reduced by 25%. These hotfixes are live, and will appear in our next hotfixes update.

      Here's Rextroy's brand new video where he utilizes Shaman's Frost Shock and the Hailstorm that persists even when you switch specializations to one-shot players.
      Here's a bit of background information on how to perform the combo.
      Here's the Frost Shock combo in action.

      Learn more about how to reach Exalted with the Gelkis and Magram Centaur Clans in Desolace under an hour!
      If you're working on the 100 Exalted Reputations achievement and are still missing some reputations for the title and Pureheart Courser mount, we've got some good news for you!

      It's possible to reach Exalted with Gelkis and Magram Centaur Clans in Desolace under an hour. Note that both reputations count as one.
      If you completed the quests in Desolace before Cataclysm, you must complete a series of quests which take about an hour up to Death to Agogridon. Pick all quests in the surrounding area to get started. Don't forget to toggle the filter on your minimap to see quests that are below your level.
      If you completed the quests up to Death to Agogridon post-Cataclysm, talk to Karnum Marshweaver at 57, 48 who will provide you with enough reputation to reach Exalted with both factions.
