You Can Skip the Korthia Intro After Completing the Battle of Ardenweald Scenario

Recommended Posts

You can skip the Korthia intro without losing the item level 187 weapons!

A major concern of the Korthia Intro skip were missing rewards, but Reddit user Hyrcyne noticed you can still skip the intro after completing the Battle of Ardenweald Scenario and getting the item level 187 weapon, 250 Anima, and The Wild Hunt reputation. Simply, get back to Oribos after completing the Battle of Ardenweald Scenario and talk to Bolvar Fordragon to skip the Korthia intro.

Note that the skip only works if you already completed the intro on at least 1 character.

You can tell it's the most alt friendly expansion when there are articles and reddit posts about weird work around to explain how to not get your alt screwed out of basic catch up gear.

Question is whether you need those to begin with.

Like, personally I don't really hunt for cosmetics and I do have lvl3 Transport networks on all my alts, hence, I rather skip. Someone who wants a new x-mog or wants a fully built up covenant base may disagree, even if anima still is pretty abundant in Korthia.

...or those 4 people in WoW who are excited to see Odyn again.

From eco. point of view you will lose Anima. If you really hunt for it, then you do get definitely more than double the amount with doing WQ's and so on in the same timeframe. (and nope i'm not an Animahunter™ 😄 )

Blizzard hates alts.

      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:

      Source: MrGraffio.
      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:

      Source: yuvalal.

      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.
