Level 60 Required to List Groups in the Group Finder

Recommended Posts

Your character must now be level 60 to list groups for Mythic+ and raids in the Group Finder.

In an effort to decrease the "WTS Spam" present in the in-game Group Finder, only level 60 characters can now list groups there. The change went live with the latest hotfixes.

Ty Blizzard. Now do something about actual bots

those bastards are actual bots so they at least "try" ~ but i dont think its hard for the bots that already farm max level areas to get a max level bot to sell in group finder lel

This at least increases the pain of banning the bots. Now they need more than just a subscription. They need at least time (or additional money buying a boost). It's something, and doesn't seem like it was too hard to add in from the dev team.

Little steps are better than no steps.

Should just implement an in-game captcha at this point. 😂

Where there is a will there is a way.  But I am interested as well to see new outcome.

This at least should reduce amount of these advertisements, but there are still groups of bots (multiple druids, haven't seen anything else) farming ore and herbs. These can still use LFG.

All this means is that the WTS will spread to all the other sections of Group Finder instead of being isolated into one/two areas. Sometimes plans like this seem good, until you realize the consequences.

While seeing the WTS in those sections was annoying, after a very simple right-click > report for advertising, they were gone from view. And hopefully being reported to the proper place and dealt with. (lol!)

Now, that disease will just spread through the rest of Group Finder, infesting everywhere else because it isn't level-capped. So, there will be far less reports being sent in and Blizz will feel they did a good job.

Well they've already been paying others in gold to do it for them, so likely they'll just require their patsy to be level 60

I usually see pairs, Tauren druid to herb faster ridden by a Highmountain Tauren to mine faster, so that they don't have to 'waste' money on glove enchants.

Just pairs? That's low, in my case these were mostly 5x druid groups (even killed one group, they were stuck in place for some reason).

I didn't mean to imply that it was just one pair, sometimes it's two pairs with one on auto-follow. 5 druids in my experience has typically been all Tauren, and herb farming only in areas they can fly. Also, you can jack their program up with clickable toys, like the fishing chair, placing it directly on the herb node.

      Blizzard is adding new Feet cosmetic armor to the game in Patch 9.1.5. In this post, we're looking at the new items in more detail.
      Tauren and Trolls will appreciate new boots coming in the latest patch. On the 9.1.5 PTR, they can be purchased from the Trial of Style NPCs, but their source remains unknown for now. Below, we previewed all the new models.

      Bloodbathed Slippers

      Boots of the Blightbelcher

      Cleric's Sabatons

      Epic Boots
      The epic-quality boots look better than the rare ones. Currently, we found four different tints of epic feet cosmetic armor in the game files.

      Undaunted, the deaf and hard-of-hearing Warcraft guild, have completed Ahead of the Curve: Sylvanas Windrunner. Congratulations!
      Undaunted is at it again! The guild earned AotC Denathrius and cleared 3/10 Mythic Castle Nathria on March 26, 2021. Yesterday, a post on Reddit revealed that they now downed Sylvanas on Heroic difficulty. Now, Mythic difficulty awaits. We wish them the best of luck! Here is a screenshot of the guild shared on Reddit.

      In something that has now become a new WoW tradition, players have been gathering to celebrate the end of Summer as we now have a very thematic seasonal clock in the game! The circle is complete as we've now seen all 4 variations of the mount in-game as well.
      While WoW is pretty static when it comes to seasons and, well, time in general, we now have a really cool connection to the real world in the form of the Wandering Ancient tree mount, so we'll be seeing gatherings like these below a lot!

      Source: Galaxy_119.
      And some will be showing the tree off in its natural habitat, proving that even ancients can be VERY stealthy in the right conditions:

      Source: drinnster.
      The Wandering Ancient is really awesome and adds extra interactivity and "feel" of the world - definitely one of the better additions to WoW in recent memory and we hope to see these little changing of seasons rituals continue on forever!
      In case you're new or missed when the mount arrived, it should be in your mount collection tab already as  gift if you have Shadowlands purchased, now head on out there and showcase the new Fall colors!
