Perma Fear Trolls While Leveling With Arms Warrior Artifact

Recommended Posts

While we've heard plenty about the bad side of pre-patch squish issues, there are some pretty solid benefits to be had as well and we see two of them combining here for an awesome effect! The Arms Warrior artifact weapon from Legion, Strom'kar, the Warbreaker Strom'kar, the Warbreaker, has a special interaction with trolls, as it fears them all, including bosses. This has been around since the weapon, and players have used it in the past with Party Sync etc, but as of the pre-patch you can now actually level with it pretty solidly as well.
*Note: you don't need the hidden appearance from the header image, we just used it cos it's cool?

But that's not all, as you don't even have to go and get the artifact in Legion if you've already unlocked it on another character, as simply transmogging the effect should also work! And, since we've seen the transmog level restrictions reduced down to 10, you can now equip any 2-hander, mog it into Strom'kar and head to Zul'Farak, Gurub, Gundrak or any other Zul you like, or even Throne of Thunder! You'll have to be a Warrior to do this, as you can't actually transmog artifacts on other classes, but you won't need to be arms and you can always poke a buddy to go level a Warrior and grab the weapon from Legion!

We've seen it in action on live servers already, with some very scared trolls in ZF! Here's an image from the live servers:

So if you want to have some fun soloing raids at their level, it's time to go Warrior or bug your Warrior friends!

It's not as fun as it seems. I got tired of the effect really fast when farming ZF for something. Fearing the Trolls puts you in combat, and of course they all run in different directions. Generally, you're stuck on foot if you dismount for any reason at all, or you're stuck hunting them all down to kill them.. and Elune only knows where they all went.

      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.

      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.
