Warning! Shards of Domination May Disappear Due to Bug

Recommended Posts

v1o4Tta.jpg
 

We have a bit of a double warning + double bug report on our hands here, as the Shards of Domination, which are pretty crucial for raiders, have a tendency to disappear and not have their set bonus work it seems.

First off we have a very basic warning, one that most of us would probably take into account but is worth mentioning just in case, so that we don't suffer Zerkom's fate - if you replace one Shard with another, by simply placing it in an occupied socket, you WILL LOSE the one that is already in there. So far, so obvious.

However there is a special item made specifically for this purpose, as the Soulfire Chisel Soulfire Chisel allows you to remove a Shard so you can place another one in the socket. At least it should, in theory. Now we can't be 100% sure that this is in fact what happened, but GeniusOrang reports that they lost two Shards despite using the chisel as intended:

It's still entirely possible they just forgot to use the chisel in one of the swaps, so take the above with a grain of salt. The set bonus not working, however, seems like something that would be impossible to miss/misunderstand. But, this also wasn't the only report of this sort either:

So, while it's entirely possible these two players just missed something and made some huge mistakes when socketing, perhaps you should make really sure which Shards you want in your gear, just in case this is a bug and isn't very uncommon. At least wait until this time tomorrow, when the final hotfixes of the week will have gone out and Blizzard might fix this bug - if it exists that is.

Shard Set Bonus only works in Torghast/Sanktum and the Maw, if you are not in one off these places, its not activated... why are people not getting it? So if the Dummy was not in one of the 3 places it couldnt work...

This isn't a bug... if you replace a gem with a gem it destroys the original gem.

Domination Shards are just raid specific gems. 

This is working as intended, that's why they put in the removal tool. 

This surprising people just tells me there are a lot of stupid people playing wow.

The bug in question is supposedly with the Chisel, and a shard dissapearing after it was used is clearly not what is supposed to happen. 

No one questions the dumbassness of "WhY mY sEt BoNUs NoT woRkInG, gG BliZZaRd!!!!!1!!!" though

Perhaps read the article once more. There are two separate things being talked about.

That's possible but... I guess I just can't imagine someone missing that. That's totally on me if that's what happened, but the chisel thing I tend to believe.

      Blizzard have shared a lot more tuning coming to the Season 1 class sets in the next Beta build, with 8 classes getting improvements.
      October 7 (Source)
      We’ll be making a number of tuning and functional changes to Class Set bonuses in the next beta build. These changes are influenced both by your responses and feedback, and by our goals for their tuning and complexity level. These changes make some of the narrower bonuses valuable in a wider variety of content and smooth out the benefits of others that could vary a lot in value based on talent choices.
      Druid
      Balance (2) Set Bonus: Damage bonus to Wrath or Starfire changed to 20% per stack (was 50%). (4) Set Bonus: Damage bonus to Starsurge or Starfall changed to 35% (was 50%). Feral (2) Set Bonus Ferocious Bite and Rip damage bonus increased to 6% (was 5%). NEW (4) Set Bonus: For each combo point spent, finishing moves increase your Rip, Rake, and Thrash damage by 2% and increase the chance for Shred, Rake, Swipe / Brutal Slash, and Thrash to Critically Strike by 2% for 4 seconds. Developers’ note: Changing the (4) Set Bonus to a more targeted effect. A lot of the value of the previous version was getting successive Ferocious Bites during Convoke & Berserk. This version puts passive power into your bleeds and adds more crit to your builders to generate more combo points at all times. Guardian NEW (2) Set Bonus: Using Mangle with Gore also deals 30% of damage dealt to nearby enemies, damage reduced beyond 5 targets. It also increases your damage done and reduces damage you take by 5% for 6 seconds. NEW (4) Set Bonus: Gore has a 5% increased chance to trigger. Using Mangle with Gore heals you for {0.5*AP} health over 6 seconds. Developers’ note: The previous version was low in power compared to other tank bonuses. This design make Mangle with Gore procs give consistent durability and damage, and gives Mangle an AOE component so it’s worth hitting over Swipe in AOE to maintain the buff. Restoration (4) Set Bonus Lifebloom power proc can now only proc once from each tick of Efflorescence, instead of once for each critically healed target. Increase to Lifebloom healing changed to 5% per stack (was 10%). Hunter
      Beast Mastery NEW (4) Set Bonus: Barbed Shot damage increased by 5% and Barbed Shot increases damage of your next Kill Command by 20%. Developers’ note: We heard you that focus was not a valuable reward in all scenarios so we changed this bonus to grant more damage to the abilities enhanced by the (2) Set Bonus. Marksmanship UPDATE (2) Set Bonus: Arcane Shot & Multi Shot critical hits cause your next Aimed Shot to cause targets hit to bleed for 40% of damage dealt over 6 seconds. (2) Set Bonus no longer reduces the casting time of Aimed Shot and bleed effect increased to 40% of Aimed Shot damage (was 20%). (4) Set Bonus increase chance for ranged auto-attacks to trigger effect to 15% (was 10%). Developers’ note: We removed the Aimed Shot cast time reduction from the (2) Set Bonus because Aimed Shots were becoming uncomfortably short during Trueshot. Survival (2) Set Bonus damage bonus increased to 15% (was 10%). UPDATE (4) Set Bonus: Raptor Strike / Mongoose Bite, Carve, and Butchery have a 20% chance to make your next Raptor Strike / Mongoose Bite, Carve, or Butchery cost no Focus and deal 50% increased damage. (4) Set Bonus chance to make Raptor Strike / Mongoose Bite, Carve, or Butchery cost no Focus increased to 20% (was 10%) and free abilities now also deal 50% increased damage. Monk
      Mistweaver Fixed an issue preventing Mistweaver’s 4-piece bonus from working with the Essence Font heal applied by Faeline Stomp. Windwalker UPDATE (4) Set Bonus: Fists of Fury now instead enhances your next 3 Rising Sun Kicks or Spinning Crane Kicks and enhanced kicks increase damage your next Fists of Fury deals by 5%, stacking up to 3 times. (4) Set Bonus now only increases the damage of Fists of Fury by 5% for each stack, instead of granting Versatility during Fists of Fury for each stack. Developers’ note: We decided that flat damage was more appropriate for a DPS class bonus than Versatility. Paladin
      Holy NEW (2) Set Bonus: Holy Shock increases the critical strike chance of your spells by 4% for 10 seconds. NEW (4) Set Bonus: Holy Light, Flash of Light, Light of Dawn, and Bestow Faith healing is increased by 6% and their critical effects increase the damage or healing of your next Holy Shock by 20%. Developers’ note: The Holy Class Set was more rotationally impactful than we like. We replaced the (2) Set Bonus with an easily maintained buff to your healing. For the (4) Set Bonus, we added some passive healing bonuses to give consistent value and removed the ability for Holy Shock to trigger enhancements to itself. Protection (2) Set Bonus: Versatility buff increased to 5% for 10 sec (up from 4% for 4 sec). Retribution NEW (2) Set Bonus: Judgment, Blade of Justice, and Wake of Ashes damage increased by 15%. NEW (4) Set Bonus: Templar’s Verdict / Final Verdict and Divine Storm damage increased by 10%. Developers’ note: We heard you that the previous class set was going to impact your rotational decisions negatively and that it had limited value in AOE. The new (2) Set Bonus empowers your strongest Holy Power generators and the (4) Set Bonus boosts your big damage spenders. Priest
      Discipline (4) Set Bonus: Amount that Penance empowers Power Word: Shield reduced to 60% of its damage or 18% of its healing (was 100% / 30%). Holy (4) Set Bonus: Bonus changed to 10% critical strike for 6 seconds (was 15% for 8 seconds). Shadow (2) Set Bonus: Damage buff reduced to 12% per stack (was 20%). (4) Set Bonus: Bonus reduced to 4% Haste (was 5%). Shaman
      Elemental 2-piece and 4-piece bonuses now work with Elemental Blast if taken. (2) Set Bonus: Now increases the damage of your next Earth Shock / Elemental Blast or Earthquake by 5%, stacking 5 times (was 2.5% stacking 10 times). (4) Set Bonus: Increases your Mastery by 8% for 5 seconds (was 10% for 10 seconds). Fixed a bug cause the 2-piece bonus to activate from every hit of Chain Lightning. Now activates once per cast. Enhancement UPDATE (2) Set Bonus: Stormstrike increases the damage of your next Fire, Frost, or Nature ability by 10% and causes it to generate 1 stack of Maelstrom Weapon. Now affects all Fire, Frost, and Nature direct damage abilities, Flame Shock excluded. NEW (4) Set Bonus: Consuming Maelstrom Weapon stacks increases your Haste by 1% for each stack consumed for 4 seconds. Developers’ note: We heard your feedback that the (2) Set Bonus only affecting Lava Lash impacted your talent decisions, so we broadened it to affect whatever you want to use. Flame Shock is not affected because its direct damage component is very low and we don’t want players to have to track variations in its damage over time. The (4) Set Bonus bonus granted cooldown reduction, which often isn’t valuable, so we replaced it with a consistent bonus that still rewards generating Maelstrom Weapon stacks. Restoration NEW (4) Set Bonus: Your critical heals have 215% effectiveness instead of the usual 200%. Developers’ note: The previous (4) Set Bonus was providing an enhancement during a time you were doing less healing and had variable uptime depending on talent choices. We replaced it with a consistent throughput bonus that is enhanced by the (2) Set Bonus. Warlock
      Destruction NEW (4) Set Bonus: Your critical strikes deal 208% damage instead of the usual 200%. Developers’ note: We agree the previous (4) Set Bonus had too much randomness and limited value for AOE abilities. We replaced it with a consistent critical damage bonus that’ll enhance your Chaos Bolts and combo with the critical strike chance from the (2) Set Bonus. Warrior
      Protection Ignore Pain granted changed to 5% of damage dealt (was 10%).

      The creator of Subcreation, Alcaras, created a visual comparison of M+ and raid item level distribution, comparing the ongoing Shadowlands Season 4 with Dragonflight Season 1.
      With the recent changes that surfaced about Great Vault scaling up to +18 in Dragonflight Season 1 and the introduction of Unique Drops, Alcaras created a visual representation of item level distribution in Mythic+ and raids in both Shadowlands Season 4 and Dragonflight Season 1.

      Fishbones is back with more Glyphs, this time creating grimoire casting animations for spells! We've already seen the very talented glyph-maker take on many classes and create various cool and weird concepts from them (ranging from blacksmith elementals and Warrior battle standards to many versions of Paladin wings, Zandalari Warlock minions and a lot more) and now casters get to sling spells out of giant books!
      These would need to be for longer cast spells, as the standard ones may get a little annoying with the flashy animation, as acknowledged by Fishbones as well.

      When it comes to fan creations there are many different levels of awesome, from something you can see a ton of passion was put into and it's cool because of that, to a unique art style used, creativity at work etc. But sometimes there really is no need to qualify the awesomeness, as the work really speaks for itself. And, well, TethanProps' Frostmourne lightsaber 3D print is just that:
      And here's an earlier video without the light part:

       
      The best part is  you can actually even buy the files to 3D print it over on TethanProps' Etsy shop (for around $16)! Some truly impressive work and the Lich King himself would be proud.

      Blizzard made some tuning adjustments to a number of classes on the Dragonflight Beta before today's raid testing.
      (Source)
      Based on various data points, including recent Beta raid testing, we’re making tuning adjustments to a number of classes. In addition to new and returning abilities, the new talent trees allow players to choose abilities that were previously exclusive to one another in the talent row system.
