Final Look at 9.0.5 Covenant Distribution

Recommended Posts

Our stats-based farewell to the 9.0 patch cycle continues after the Mythic+ and Castle Nathria logs, as we take a final look at the Covenant distribution for each spec and each PvE activity, as well as an overall number, based on Subcreation and wowranks.io.

We won't get into too much detail here, as we're just taking a quick look at the final standings for the first patch cycle, starting with the overall Covenant numbers:

Data by wowranks.io.

"Shockingly" the Night Fae are still at the top, just as they were the last 50 times we checked, and they even seem to have even grown more popular since the last time we took a look. Hopefully 9.1 might be able to address this with the new legendaries and class changes.

Then we're on to the activity and spec-specific distribution, starting with the DPS role:

Covenant-Melee.jpgData gathered and presented by Subcreation, based on Raider.IO and Warcraft Logs numbers.

The Night Fae domination is pretty clear for the ranged classes, while the melee are significantly more diverse (although still have plenty of purple in there).

And then we're on to the tanks and healers:

Data gathered and presented by Subcreation, based on Raider.IO and Warcraft Logs numbers.

The tanks and healers are actually pretty well balanced, with Druids being the big exception throughout all roles, as they just love those Fae, no matter what they're doing in dungeons or raids!


It's going to be very interesting to see what the 9.1 class changes and the new raid do to this fairly set Covenant distribution, and we're looking forward to checking back and finding out!

      We've seen the crazy Torghast speed runs with players just sprinting to the finish line in a mad dash to the sub-3 minute mark, but today we have... well a different kind of mad dash!
      Gitoff has gone for speed AND performance in layer 12, not only going pretty fast in general (perhaps not as fast as the recent 2 minute 56 second run, but definitely faster than most of us can ever hope to go), but also getting the 5-star flawless score as well!   The immediate comment in the video description? "Wasted at least 30seconds on floor 1 :(" Granted, Gitoff did have a nice little 9-minute Momentum buff ready before entering the run, but that's preparation for you!

      The final hotfixes of the week focus on Shards of Domination tuning.
      July 30 (Source)
      Items and Rewards
      Shards of Domination [With weekly maintenance in each region] Blood Link – The damage and healing amount has been increased at all ranks by 20%. [With weekly maintenance in each region] Winds of Winter – The amount of damage and healing stored by the Winds has been increased at all ranks by ~45%. Developers’ note: The difference between the three Rune Words for the Shards of Domination system is bigger than we want it to be. We have identified and fixed a bug in Winds of Winter which was preventing some damaging and healing abilities from counting towards its total, and we have retuned Winds of Winter and Blood Link so that the relative power between Rune Word bonuses is more balanced. Jotungeirr, Destiny's Call will now reset its cooldown at the end of boss encounters. Fixed an issue where Ticking Sack of Terror could trigger more than intended in the presence of multiple trinkets.

      As the WoW team mentioned in their statement, they have been removing references "that are not appropriate for our world". While we've noticed the /spit emote change on the BCC PTR, most/all of the other content removal seems to be centered on references to Alex Afrasiabi, who was talked about in the Activision Blizzard lawsuit. Today we'll take a look at some of the things already removed from the game and some that remain, as the removal seems to be an ongoing process.
      First off we have many references already removed, with the Fras Siabi and Foror names being replaced by Ezra Grimm and Nostro. There's many more items, NPCs etc. related to the two names above and others, which you can check out over on Wowhead. The most notable NPC change, however, is the one that received immediate retribution from players when news of the lawsuit broke, as Field Marshall Afrasiabi is now Field Marshall Stonebridge. For a longer list of some of the items that have been removed, check out Wowhead's article here.

      However, it seems the work is still ongoing, as there are some references that have not been addressed yet, or some that didn't quite go through completely, like the below. You can see the while the NPC's name remains problematic, it is actually changed in the chat window when he speaks:

      While many references to Fras Siabi have been removed from Stratholme, like the mini-boss, quest etc, at least one remains:

      Source: Thekingchem.
      And then there's this very specific one, which might have even gone completely missed if yuvalal hadn't spotted it, as Foror is mentioned in a conversation between two NPCs in the Escape from Durnholde Keep/Old Hillsbrad Foothills Caverns of Time dungeon:

      Clearly the removal of references is still ongoing, and even the ones missed above may already be removed from the game when you read this, as Blizzard have a lot of them to go through.

      Blizzard announced some nerfs for Shards of Domination set bonuses recently. They even made it live briefly, but have been reverted, as the devs didn't want to proceed with the change.
      Further Shard adjustments will be made in the coming days, but they don't want to nerf them now that many players have obtained and upgraded them.

      Shards of Domination Earlier this week, a change to the power of Shards of Domination set bonuses (e.g. Chaos Bane) was briefly applied to the live game. We are no longer planning to proceed with that change at all. We may make further adjustments in the coming days, but we will not reduce the power of Shards now that many players have earned and upgraded them.

      Tired of looking up Soul Ash and Soul Cinder costs? Check out this simple macro that tells you how much of each you need to upgrade Legendary items in Patch 9.1!
      If you run the following macro in the chat, you will see how much Soul Ash / Soul Cinders you need for:
      A new Rank 1 and 4 Legendary; Rank 5 and 6 Soul Cinder costs; Soul Ash & Cinders cost from Rank 1 to 6. The macro was created by Shinela and improved by DoverBoys.
      /run local f,r,i,j,a,c=C_CurrencyInfo.GetCurrencyInfo,"\nRank","\124T3743738:0\124t","\124T4067362:0\124t" a=f(1828).quantity c=f(1906).quantity print(r,"1:",i,1250-a,r,"4:",i,5150-a,r,"5:",j,1100-c,r,"6:",j,1650-c,"/n",r,"1 to 6:",i,3900-a,j,1650-c) The following appears in the chat window when you run it.
