New Beta Wave Has Gone Out + A Fix for the Downloading Problem

Recommended Posts

49055-shadowlands-alpha-901-build-33978.
 

Another Shadowlands beta wave has gone out as many players are reporting getting an invite. However, there is an issue of the beta not showing up in the launcher for download, but there's also an easy solution which seems to have worked for many - if you reset your battle net account password it should update the account with the beta flag.

    No, I’m afraid not, Vaellidor. I am one person and this is not a direct contact channel for support.

    That does not mean that you cannot be helped.

    You’ll want to reset your password. That should update the account status.

    There's also been some talk of the seeming strange choice to add more people to the beta a little over a week before the actual expansion launches, but those that received it will probably be pretty happy to try it out!

    A number of us in testing got pretty burned out over the many months. I uninstalled my WoW Beta on 11/09 in anticipation of the new activities in Pre-Patch. I knew I would have little time or motivation to test so...thanks again Blizz! Was fun!

        While we now know that the Archon survives the events of the 9.1 patch cinematic, the scene was somewhat reminiscent of something we've seen around the holidays last year, as the Archon was killed during a regular Spires of Ascension run.
        In the patch 9.1 cinematic we see the Jailer/Anduin stab Kyrestia in the chest and take out her "key", but we also see her moving afterwards, and Blizzard confirmed that she survives the attack. However, when she was taken down at the end of last year in the dungeon, she actually died and had a special text pop-up that said "As the Archon perishes, all life in the zone is wiped out!", so it's probably for the best that she survived the Jailer's attack. Zovaal and Anduin didn't/couldn't take her down, but a regular Doomguard apparently has no problems:
        The kicker here is that she respawned after her death and one of the party members commented on it, basically predicting what will happen in patch 9.1:
        The death animation itself doesn't seem relevant, as we won't get to see the cinematic events in-game directly, but her holding her side is. So it's quite likely we'll be seeing that particular character animation of the Archon, spearless and injured, when we go to her after the events of the 9.1 cinematic! We'll see whether this will be just a special thing for Kyrian Covenant members or (more likely) we'll all get to see and talk to her after what happens, and it'll be really interesting to see if she'll be using the same animation as above.
        In terms of what actually happened in the "kill" above, it was another manifestation of the already seen bug where a Warlock pet goes a little crazy, being both hostile and friendly at the same time and gaining some serious power. The fact it went on to actually attack and eventually take down the friendly NPC was new, however, and we haven't seen any reports of it happening since.

        The Starting Zone Podcast talked to Jeremy Feasel and Frank Kowalkowski, and we learned that they plan on adding 40 more Renown levels in Chains of Domination. Will flying be heavily time-gated?
        Currently, on live servers, the maximum Renown your character can earn is 40. Shadowlands Pathfinder is coming in 9.1, and flying in Shadowlands should be easier to unlock than in previous expansions because it's coming in the first content patch of the expansion, and the achievement isn't gated behind reputation grinds. But how long will it take to unlock flying when the patch hits live servers?
        Blizzard clarified that you would only need to finish the Covenant Campaign to unlock flying a while ago, but at the same time, they are adding 40 more Renown levels in 9.1, bringing the cap to 80.
        With 3 (or 2 in later phases) Renown levels per week, here's how long it takes to unlock Renown 40 on live servers:

        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. The Covenant story's new portions will likely be unlocked at certain Renown levels (40+), so we expect the Pathfinder to be time-gated. How heavy the time-gating will be remains unknown for now.
        You can listen to the interview below. It starts at around 56:22.
