Recommended Posts

In their continued effort to remove inappropriate references from the game, Blizzard desexualized two paintings in this week's Patch 9.1.5 Build 40196.

The first in-game painting of a woman was completely replaced with a fruit painting. We compare both paintings below.

Old 9.1.0 Painting

New 9.1.5 Painting

The second painting is an update that adds more armor and fidelity.

Blizzard continues to remove inappropriate references from the game. In Patch 9.1.5 alone, they renamed multiple achievements, Mac'Aree to Eredath, and more.

I mean kinda makes sense when you're dealing with *filtered* abuse issues.

Do you want people to react sexually to what you're doing and saying or not?

That's what should determine what you do and say.

yeah cause something that's more tame than what you would see at a beach is wwwwaaaayyy worse than going around physically abusing and killing untold numbers of sentient beings.  It's nothing more than a low attempt at pandering so they can say they did "something" instead of fixing the actual issues.

Who cares, we still have Maldraxxus with naked hot chicks like hulking abominations and monstrosities with female voices but zero feminine features - sexual objectification 101, I'm surprised it still stays as it is.

This is getting really head-scratching for me. Like, I noticed last night Dreadscar Rift has a cushioned area with loads of succubi stood around it. How is that not the same as the top painting? How is the succubus model not the same as the top painting? Is the brothel in Boralus not equally as discomforting? Just off the top of my head.

They're never going to touch things like the succubus model, let alone player armour. That'd bring backlash. They're just going to go for easy things -- and I can see both good and poor justifications for that.

But I don't understand how this line is drawn. It's gonna be really shaky. And the more they change, the wonkier the line becomes because of what remains.

Unless they're just throwing random stuff at their interns as practice.

Yes,they've solved it,finally they understood ! Change in-game artwork to truly reflect upon your past mistakes,and redeem yourselves in the eyes of those who were harassed.By the gods ,why didn't they think of this sooner ?!

The battle continues ,as our brave warriors continue to struggle against injustice ! What will happen you ask ? Find out next time on Dragon Ba....I mean on Blizzard Ball Y !

Ok,now I am very well aware how sarcasm and mockery are dripping from my upper text , to me this is like putting a band aid on your arm when you clearly cut your leg,useless and pointless. Ok I get it,remove any trace of people who are directly involved,but this is a bit excessive,they are looking for problems that aren't there, and don't mean to be an *filtered* about it , but repixiling and reworking some artwork in-game won't fix any issues they have in the workplace just to make it seem like they're the "good guys" . Bash away if you don't agree,just my two cents .

These portraits were such low quality, they were barely noticeable. No point in changing them, especially when they don't show more than a skimpy transmog would allow.

Sexuality is fine - sexual abuse is not.

Censoring one does not erase the other.

Asking for attention to your sexuality with your dress and then getting it and being appalled doesn't make sense to me.

Equating dressing in a manner you enjoy with consent to abuse doesn't make sense to me.

I don't care if you're dressed in leather bondage gear, including a ball gag and hood, that doesn't mean I've got the go ahead to abuse you, verbally or otherwise.

No it doesn't mean someone has the go ahead to do those things.

It does mean that you personally have significantly invited them to travel that road in their mind. Which ultimately leads to some people turning thoughts into reality.

Acting on thoughts is a personal responsibility, full stop.

      Update: we now also know when double legendaries will be coming - 5 weeks after launch. Read here for more information.

      Blizzard have announced the second legendary slot will no longer be related to reputation, but instead linked both the belt and the legendary memory to completing Chapter 7 of the Zereth Mortis story! We're not quite sure how long it'll take to get to chapter 7 at the moment. Blizzard also explained why the delay is there in the first place:
      Double Legendary (Source)
      Hello all,
      Thanks for everyone’s feedback on the Enlightened Legendary belts and memories, and on the issue of when you can obtain them and what activities they require. We have some changes coming to a future PTR build that I’d like to talk about a bit.
      First, what are we doing? The Belt of Unity is moving from the Enlightened reputation and into the campaign quest for Zereth Mortis. You’ll be able to obtain it at the end of Chapter 7 of the Zereth Mortis campaign, which we hope will feel like a nice crowning accomplishment. The Memory of Unity is remaining on the Enlightened reputation vendor, and will remain an account-wide unlock like other Legendary Memories from Shadowlands, but will now additionally require that you’ve completed Chapter 7 in order to purchase it. This Memory means that when your second, third, or tenth character is ready to start Eternity’s End that they’ll be able to craft an Enlightened Legendary right away. The new questing requirement is being added to head off any feeling of needing to rush ahead to Revered for progression on your main character. We’re also still debating some other possible changes to the overall structure of Zereth Mortis rewards, but I don’t have concrete details to share on those yet.
      Some folks have asked why there’s a delay in acquiring a second legendary at all. The answer there is that we have goals for your characters to grow over the course of the patch, allowing them to overcome challenges they couldn’t initially overcome. One specific example here is the difficulty of Sepulcher of the First Ones: by keeping the Enlightened Legendary a little bit in The Future from the raid’s launch, we can tune the raid at a difficulty that allows early progression to be bolstered by additional power once players start hitting stumbling blocks. If this power was instead available to your characters on the first day, tuning would have to take that into account for people who expect the first few weeks to be challenging, and that would in turn deprive many raids of what we think will be a fun and enjoyable boost in power after striving as far as they can without it.
      It’s important to us that there’s a pretty level playing field with the Enlightened Legendary in terms of when different players obtain it. We want it to be an impactful moment of growth for your characters, getting to change the rules of how they play the game for the rest of Eternity’s End. Our initial plans of putting it on the Enlightened reputation had this intent, in that we were planning to distribute most of the reputation gains on campaign quests and on quests that players would do once or twice a week, but we hear you that this structure still felt unsatisfying for players whose free time lends itself more to periodic long sessions than for frequent shorter ones. We feel that moving the Enlightened Legendary into the quest campaign will be even more egalitarian while still providing a very satisfying growth moment.
      As always, we’re still open to and listening to feedback here, so once the changes go up, please do continue to tell us how you feel about them.

      Blizzard have now also clarified that chapter 7 of the Zereth Mortis story, at which point players will have double legendaries unlocked, will be available on the 3rd week after Mythic opens, so the 5th week of the patch! Blizzard also talked about why the initial 2nd legendary is going to be a belt. 
      Double Legendaries (Source)
      Good point, yeah, sorry about that. Chapter 7 will be available on the third week after the Mythic raid opens. So there will be two full weeks of Mythic raiding during which nobody can have two legendaries, after which they should be available to everyone.
      ...
      Totally fair question. We looked at what slots players have crafted legendaries in, and tried to pick the slot we thought would disrupt as few people as possible. Also, given that tier sets are back in Eternity’s End, we want to avoid putting this new Unity legendary in any slot that conflicts with tier gear. As with many things in design, there’s not an objective right or wrong choice here, but that was the thinking behind picking the Waist slot.
