Gunshoes No Longer Work in the Maw

Recommended Posts

One of the more popular movement tricks for the Maw, where only 2 very specific mounts will be allowed, has been nerfed/removed from existence in the zone. Gunshoes Gunshoes, a part of every speed leveler and Maw-focused player's arsenal, were one of the preferred ways of getting around the zone and are now unusable in the Jailer's domain. Zerkom initially spotted the change:

This is in line with other recent changes Blizzard have made, like capping the speed stat to 50%, but there are still plenty of other workarounds to the Maw limitations, most notably and obviously, Druids with their Travel Form Travel Form and Worgen with Running Wild Running Wild, both of which work just fine. There are a few other items that will boost your speed, but now it remains to be seen whether Blizzard will actually remove all of them from the Maw, hopefully including both Druid and Worgen advantages, as the Gunshoes were at least leveling the playing field a little.

Also worthy of note, our first entry to the Shadowlands will actually be in the Maw, so this isn't just an endgame concern, as DesMephisto recently pointed out, and if things remain like this, Druids and Worgen will have a massive advantage as they will pull ahead of the leveling pack (which may be appropriate lore-wise) and have the following zones to themselves.

I mean i also was fishing about 4.000 Darkmoon Daggermaws with m+ preparation in mind for SL, then they nerfed the feast for +lvl 50.

 

At least i had some fun there!

F to you both...

 

But seriously, why are they limiting speed things so damn much... praying they don't remove the druid/worgen things... especially on something we'll do a lot of times, it just makes it more tedious and long term, annoying.

Don't tell anyone and sell them before everyone knows it. 😄

Yeah the zealotry with their "we want people at foot speed at this common max level grind" feels really off.     Just after the interview where ion half denied with politcalspeak how they didn't use play time metrics exclusively and wanted things fun too.    This is Not a fun mechanic.

The thing is, why implement all these items and then limit them to such a small amount of content. All the potions alchemist can make, or devices from engineers, they are utter crap. There's barely any useful stuff so why not scrap engineers entirely? Its the same with inscription. They see hardly any use compared to tailors, blacksmiths or alchs (who total dominate the world alongside the enchanters)

 

It doesn't feel like a game anymore where I can use smart ideas to benefit from but rather walk in line with everyone else.

      Blizzard have detailed what's been going on in relation to server stability and the long queues some servers are experiencing:
      (source)
      Since shortly after the launch of Shadowlands, we’ve experienced some service issues that are negatively impacting gameplay on a small number of realms. In this region, we’ve been monitoring and working around the clock to solve these issues for:
      Area 52 Frostmourne Illidan Stormrage Tichondrius We increased realm capacity to let more players than ever before into a single realm, but extreme demand on a few realms has exceeded even that capacity, so we have dialed down some of our earlier changes. We are trying to carefully balance service stability and accessibility, and exploring multiple avenues to get everyone online and playing smoothly.
      This issue is our number one priority. We will continue to work to solve this as quickly as possible, and we will provide further updates as necessary.
      Thank you very much for your patience.

      The most controversial issues of the Shadowlands has begun creating real problems already. Many players are having huge issues when switching Covenants, as there's either bugs in the way or, much worse, actual intended consequences of the switch. We will be looking at only a few of the many reports of problems/badly designed switching systems from reddit.
      The biggest issue reported so far is for players who chose a Covenant, only to find out they don't really like it and, since it was explained that switching them was NOT a big deal, while switching back was, they swapped early and are now screwed for an entire week's worth of progression and story content.
      We don't know if this is unintended, a bug, or exactly how it's supposed to work, so there may be hotfixes incoming (hopefully).
      What seems to be happening with all of the above is that they "spent" their currency on their previous Covenant or it was "locked" by default because it was earned pre-switch, and the souls needed to progress the campaign are now VERY hard to come by (only possible through World Quest drop) because of the weekly limitations.
      So if you're not liking your Covenant, either wait until late in the week to switch, or maybe if you haven't done ANYTHING in it, it could be safe to do so, but we can't be sure. Let's hope there's hotfixes coming soon and this isn't the way it's intended.

      The Shadowlands really look incredible, and the visuals really are one of the strongest aspects of the new expansion, but there's even more to them (or less, in this case)! Players have been exploring the afterlife, and after many, MANY "Bastion is really bright" memes, it seems players have taken to dimming things down, and the Inky Black Potion from the Darkmoon Faire makes the Shadowlands really true to their name!
      Let's start with Oribos, as the contrast really pops:

      And the infinitely bright Bastion:

      We even got a comparison shot for Maldraxxus!

      But truly, Ardenweald is the star of this Inky Black show:

      While Revendreth just looks more Revendrethy:

      The Maw, however, sort of loses some of its uniqueness:

      We even get a clearer view of Torghast back in Icecrown with the potion!

      In any case, if you have some potions handy, definitely take a look around each zone while you're in there, or if not, don't forget to stock up the next time the Darkmoon Faire is in town!

      Did you always get slightly upset when Pelagos and Kleia would mount up on those cool flying lion-looking mounts in the Bastion quests and you couldn't? Well now you can! The Silverwind Larion has been found, or rather the way to get him has, as you'll "just" need to collect 50 tiny Anima Shards in Bastion.

      As Belivious677 pointed out, the WoW secret finding community has recently found the final 50th one, and you can find all their locations (and details on the hunt itself) in this google document, or they may have already been uploaded to the HandyNotes: Shadowlands addon as well (the creator put together the google doc as well), or they will be soon.

      These aren't all of them so definitely check out the google doc for the full guide.
      So once again, thanks to Belivious677 for pointing out the secret has been solved, to HandyNotes maker Zarillion for putting the search together and to the WoW secret finding discord for, well, finding the secret!
