Recommended Posts

In their ongoing effort to remove inappropriate references from World of Warcraft, Blizzard renamed multiple achievements in Patch 9.1.5.

The following achievements have been renamed in the first build of Patch 9.1.5.

  • "My Sack is Gigantique" has been renamed to "My Storage is Gigantique".
  • "Bros. Before Ho Ho Ho's" has been renamed to "Holiday Bromance".

On July 27, Blizzard announced they would be removing inappropriate references from the game. You can read the full message here.

While we turn to our team for guidance in our internal work to protect marginalized groups and hold accountable those who threaten them, we also want to take immediate action in Azeroth to remove references that are not appropriate for our world. This work has been underway, and you will be seeing several such changes to both Shadowlands and WoW Classic in the coming days.

lol

They've actually lost it.

Like some things are just jokes people and they don't mean anything more than that.

Wonder if they'll remove the fact that we actually mercilessly slaughter entire generations of races and whole societies for a pair of cheap boots.

Yup pretty much violence seems to be fine, but some words are not.. While I understand the bro's one, the my sack is gigantic one really has me wondering..

This might be going a little bit too far. Yet things like Steamy Romance Novel are still there. Are they going to rewrite it into something wholesome? 🤔 Also /spit emote is being removed too. What's the new meta then? Fart and burp?

I don't see the problem with this. While I doubt many, if any people actively complained, and most people never even noticed or cared, those achievements should never have been called that in the first place. I agree that changing them at this point won't really affect much but it's never to late to admit you were wrong and try to fix something.

Lame!  The funny quest names and achievement titles are some of the best parts of the game.   If you make it all "p.c." then its really going to take away the uniqueness of the game.  Quit trying to fix things that aren't broken.   Address the big issues and focus on your storylines and expansions.   You are ruining the game by trying to make things better.

That second one is hillarious though, but common sense left the office along with sanity.

They should really consider maybe renaming the whole game in the future , I mean really , come one guys , if we try hard enough and REALLY look for double meanings/modern day vulgar slang we can really turn this into a child friendly +8 age game .

Who's with me ? 

P.S : up untill they renamed the first achievement, I really didn't care to actually ponder and think of the "hidden" meaning of sack...oh well,getting old I suppose , to me it just meant a huge bag

P.P.S : huge bag....hmmm....I need to see if this means something else now,I can't be sure now of anything being interpreted the wrong way

      The 9.2 PTR is most likely coming this week, but we already know all the tier set bonuses and the fact that all classes will be able to equip two legendary powers come the new patch, so we poked our class writers to give us some insight into what things will look like! We're starting off with Hunters, as Azortharion takes us through all the relevant changes we know so far and what the mean for all three specs!
      Azortharion:
      These are only my semi-educated thoughts and musings for Patch 9.2. You can find Patch 9.2 sims on my patreon when those become doable (not for a while).
      Double Legendaries
      We can use double legendaries exclusively when combining a Covenant Legendary with a regular one. So Fragments of the Elder Antlers + Serpentstalker's Trickery becomes possible, but SST + Surging Shots will not be possible. This looks better for Night Fae because it has the strongest raid Covenant Legendary, while Kyrian's is very weak. It is also likely good for Venthyr, but it's hard to see Venthyr being super desirable because its damage profile is so poor (bursty profiles > flat profiles nearly all of the time). It is hard to imagine Necrolord being relevant even with its super-strong AoE Covenant Legendary.
      From a spec balance PoV, this looks good for BM where Antlers is super-powered and Rylakstalker's Piercing Fangs is a strong all-rounder Legendary.
      Tier Sets
      Beast Mastery
      2 - piece – Your Kill Command critical strike chance is increased for each stack of Frenzy your pet has.
      4 - piece – Kill Command critical hits increase the damage and cooldown reduction of your next Cobra Shot.
      The big downside of the Beast Mastery tier set is that both of the bonuses are basically completely single-target oriented. This does not bode well for a spec that lacks in the AoE (and especially burst AoE) department. It synergizes well with the Flamewaker's Cobra Sting Legendary and it is not inconceivable to imagine something like Flamewaker's + Tier Set Bonus + Killer Cobra (Level 60 Talent) which would enable many supercharged and free Kill Commands. But again this only benefits single-target which is disappointing.
      Marskamsnship
      2 - piece - Trick Shots now also increases the damage of the affected shot by 30%.
      4 - piece - Spending 80 Focus grants you 2 charges of Trick Shots.
      This is a very strong and exciting tier set. If you read the 2pc+4pc combination closely, you will quickly notice that this affects single-target and introduces relevant 2-target cleave to the spec and is a massive boost to AoE damage. Not only that, but it will make the rotation a lot more technical and will cause your GCD decisions to matter much more, as you will want to maximize the mileage you get out of the Trick Shots charges generated from the 4pc. This bonus HUGELY favors Kyrian MM, which is why it is a shame that Kyrian's Covenant Legendary is so mediocre. I hope the community will let their grievances about Pact of the Soulstalkers (the Kyrian Legendary) known to the designers, because Kyrian is likely going to be the meta regardless, and it would suck to be stuck playing an exceptionally boring but also bad Legendary.
      Survival
      2 - piece - When Kill Command resets, it has a 40% chance to make your next Wildfire Bomb incur no cooldown.
      4 - piece - Your Wildfire Bombs deal 30% additional damage. This bonus is increased to 80% for bombs empowered by Mad Bombardier
      The 2pc is an absolutely massive AoE and burst AoE boost to Survival. Mythic+ will be particularly fun with this set bonus combination, as you will be able to have your strong uncapped button deal extra damage and not trigger its cooldown. You'll basically become a Bombslinger. I expect this to push Wildfire Infusion to the top for single-target, effectively doing away with Birds of Prey-based builds, which is a massive quality of life boon to a spec that has long been hampered by the inflexibility of its best ST build, and its inability to do good AoE + single target simultaneously. It does mean that the net single target dps increase is a little weak, but that was never Survival's big weakness.


      You can read more on Hunters in general in Azortharion's Beast Mastery, Marksmanship and Survival class guides, or check him out over on twitter or twitch!

      It's been a while, but the hotfixes keep on coming, with some class and Season of Mastery improvements.
      November 30 (Source)
      Classes
      Mage Fixed an issue that prevented Barrier absorb effects from being reduced to their intended values while using Triune Ward (Runecarving Power) in PvP combat. Absorb values should now appropriately match the current tooltip value of 35% effectiveness. Warrior Shattering Throw will no longer deal extra damage beyond the absorb shield when breaking large absorbs. WoW Classic Era and Season of Mastery
      Niby the Almighty now properly teaches the Inferno spell to Warlocks.

      In this post, we are looking at the correct model of the Shadowlands PvP Season 3 Gladiator mount coming in Eternity's End.
      Blizzard today confirmed the PvP Season 3 Gladiator mount will use the red tint instead of the blue one, as was originally hinted through datamining. The Season 3 Keystone Master mount is also red-tinted and matches the new PvP Season Gladiator mount model that we preview below.

      Cosmic Gladiator's Soul Eater is a mount rewarded to Gladiators in PvP Season 3 which starts in Patch 9.2.
      UPDATE (Nov 30): Blizzard confirmed in a tweet that the plan is to have the red tint of the mount as a gladiator reward for Season 3, instead of the tint previewed in this article.
      Placeholder for tweet 1465748704527204352 Cosmic Gladiator's Soul Eater - "This soul eater's gaze unnerves you. Best not meet its eyes for too long."
      The Cosmic Gladiator's Soul Eater is a recolor of the existing gladiator soul eater model that were added in Shadowlands.
