Huge Devos Cheese/Potential Exploit in Spires of Ascension

Recommended Posts

It seems there's a much easier way to handle Devos, the final boss of the Spires of Ascension, as many players have been using this extremely powerful cheese/creative use of game mechanics/exploit to speed things up and make the encounter trivial.

As spotted by the WoW Highlights Youtube channel, the method actually kind of breaks the boss, as Devos does none of her mechanics after the cheese, and it's pretty easy to pull off too. While this seems like an extremely obvious exploit, it's interesting to know that something very similar happened back in King's Rest, where you could do the same thing to Mchimba the Embalmer, the second boss, and Blizzard actually allowed that, even in the MDI, as Ellesmere points out and explains this new Spires method:

You can see the results of the method here, as the boss just does nothing after the first spear throw interrupts her:

And here are two more examples, where we can actually see the method being done directly (in the first two examples):

This particular one seems like it will be getting fixed fast by Blizzard, however, as it is the final boss and the method basically removes the majority of the fight and makes it very trivial.

So they won't fix it during SL same as the Kings Rest guy

Not sure how i feel about it i mean the boss in Kings Rest wasn't a final boss but Devos is kinda makes it sad because at that point the run is pretty much over so it takes the fun out of it watching it

No one official has said or confirmed that. The article even finishes with "it's an end boss so likely will be fixed quickly", people have merely stipulated why it might be the case if they don't fix it.

      The latest 9.1.5 update comes with new spell restrictions, rendering players unable to use certain spells while completing challenges in the Timewalking Mage Tower. Here is a list of all spells that will be disabled in the Mage Tower.
      Runecarving (Legendary) Powers; Shards of Domination procs; Covenant Signature and Class Abilities; Soulbind Conduit procs; Other item procs from previous expansions, like Spellbound Runic Band of Unrelenting Slaughter [10-15% Primary stat increase] from Warlords, and Wrathion's sockets from MoP (Capacitive Primal Diamond, Courageous Primal Diamond, Indomitable Primal Diamond, Sinister Primal Diamond). Legion Legendaries don’t work because the effects stop working at max level 60.

      This week's Patch 9.1.5 PTR build has arrived! The Available in Eight Colors achievement is now account-wide, Timebound Ruminations now boost your Companion to level 30 instead of granting 5,000 XP, and more.

      Achievements
      Available in Eight Colors – This Achievement is now account-wide and grants all color options for the X-995 Mechanocat mount to all characters on your account. Dungeons and Raids
      Timewalking New: Legion Timewalking Timewalking Mage Tower Testing of this feature will be available for 24 hours, starting October 21 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. Visit this forum thread for submitting your feedback on this feature. Items and Rewards
      Timebound Ruminations – Set an Adventures companion to level 30. Requires one companion to reach level 40. Cannot be used on companions level 30 and above (was grants 5000 experience points directly to a Adventures companion of your choice). (This change will be available in a later PTR build) Developers’ note: After reading player feedback feeling that the Anima cost was too high for the amount of companion experience granted, we made changes to the item to set the companion to level 30 instead. The original design of the item was intended to be a supplemental augment to get companions through very low levels quickly, and not to be replacement for interacting with the system. Upon further inspection after player feedback, we agree that cost was too high for 5000 XP and made the changes to be a level boost to 30 instead.
