New Item Upgrade User Interface in Patch 9.1.5

Recommended Posts

30845-patch-725-upgrading-legendary-item

Blizzard has refined the item upgrade UI in Patch 9.1.5.

You can either drag the items you want to upgrade into the green "+" slot or click on it for a list of items that are eligible for an upgrade to show up.

You can preview upgrade costs and stat differences, skip upgrade ranks, and more in Patch 9.1.5. The new UI contains information such as upgrade costs (how much currency is needed to upgrade an item), stat differences, and more. You can even skip ranks and upgrade directly to max rank.

Continuing to make the UI more controller friendly - honestly, if they could nail it, adding full controller functionality (with no add on) would be huge in getting new players. The mouse and keyboard setup is very daunting for a lot of gamers across many generations.

Also one step closer to getting WOW on consoles, which would be another huge way to grow and sustain subscribers. Imagine WOW on the Switch, with your handheld screen being your mini map and other HUD stuff, leaving your screen free for gameplay elements!

for some classes i struggle to find enough key- or mous-bindings for all abilities, trinkets or talents i need. my last console was a play station 1 and a xbox 360, did the controllers evolve that much, that you could fit all your bindings somewhere on it now?

I hope they never do, and if they do, I hope they will indicate to normal people when they will played with such people..

looks cool but if i didnt miss something he just covered up 20 abilities. basically barely enough bindings for that boss. im not playing elemental shaman but i can say that hes missing BL, stun, slow and anti fear totem, frog, purge and also no button for on use trinkets.

for my chars i would need like 25-30 bindings for in fight situation, depending on the class/race. in that case i would have to "click" everything else like buffs, bufffood and abilities you dont need in fight

There are 4 face buttons, 4 d-pad buttons, and two bumper buttons. That's 10 buttons showing; with left, right, and both triggers together acting as modifiers you can bind 40 different actions to the buttons alone, and this does not factor in the back, start, and click-stick buttons on all modern controllers.

Here is a better video showing all the key binds and using more of the tool kit:

I completely agree, but only given that they don't affect the mouse/keyboard functionality. Even a game like ESO I tried playing with controllers, but it just doesn't cut it. MMOs are way more efficient with mouse and keyboard. Controllers are chill, and I very much endorse having them enabled for any game - when you desire chill gameplay, but in arenas or top end raiding - I just can't see how it wil ever compete.

      We've already checked out the new 9.1.5 Druid travel forms, but now we're going to find out how to get them and take an even better look at them all as LestTV gives us a tour of all the new forms!
      In short, the easiest way to get them is by just simply buying them from the Auction House, although that might up being expensive in the first weeks of the patch, so we also get to see where to get the Inscription recipes if you want to get them that way. You'll need various reputations for some of the recipes, just grind some mobs to have it drop for others, one is from the meat-craving merchant, and one even has you going back to Legion to get it!

      We have some amazing fan creations to take a look at, as Simaia finished a big project focusing on ideas Paladin "class skins" for all races, including Allied ones as well! We have Night/Moodblades for Night Elves, Blood Knights, Silver Hands and Riftblades for Void Elves, Lightblades and Shadow Knights for Fosaken and a lot more!
      Head on over to the full twitter thread to see them all in once place, or check out some highlights we picked below:
       
      Some truly impressive work there, and if you want to see all 13 new Paladin race looks, head on to the main twitter thread here. Thanks a lot to Simaia and we hope Blizzard take into account just how much players want new class/race combinations, especially for Paladins!

      After a long time waiting the final quest needed to complete the The Zovaal Shuffle achievement (for players that have been keeping up with it), the Ember Count, is now up on NA realms (and presumably on EU soon as well, once the Kyrian Assault opens later today).
      The reason the Zovaal Shuffle is important and players have been waiting since the patch launched to complete it is that it's part of the On the Offensive meta achievement (which allows you to buy Covenant-specific mounts with Death's Advance), and it in turn is part of the Breaking the Chains meta - which brings with it the Hand of Salaranga mount! However, the mount reward itself is bugged at the moment, with multiple players reporting not having received it after completing the achievement.

      If you're not sure what to do for the achievement, you need to find Gubbins, grab the Mawproof Parasol and then dance near 5 forges in Zovaal's Cauldron. You can find Gubbins in one of 4 locations: 40 41; 35 43; 32 42; 36 36 (as mentioned by MMO Champion).
