The Great Push returns for Season 2! The competitive dungeon one-off tournament of the year takes place between December 10-12 and is adding Legion timewalking Mythic+ dungeons as well! As with the first Great Push you can participate as well, if you have what it takes and make it through the Proving Grounds stage, so get those M+ muscles into training! Even if you don't qualify specifically you can still get the in-game banner to show you did well enough in the Proving Grounds, so read up on what it takes below.
There will be live coverage of the event on Upcomer so you can be sure to have all the information and read about all the excitement when the event starts.
We’re thrilled to announce details for the second competitive dungeon one-off tournament of the year, as The Great Push returns for Season 2, December 10-12!
One of our core goals this year has been to push the boundaries of what competitive dungeon-running can look like, to look beyond the standard formats of the Mythic Dungeon International (MDI) to see how we can expand PVE Competition. In May we introduced the first-ever The Great Push, challenging teams to push keystones as high as possible within a limited time, with community and player response exceeding what we could have hoped.
For Season 2 we are evolving The Great Push to make it even better than before! We’re once again asking teams to push Keystones across six dungeons; in addition to four from Shadowlands, we are time walking all the way back to Legion for the remaining two! While only six teams will make it to the main event and compete for their share of the $20,000 (USD) prize pool, all registered teams that complete under time the two dungeons within the Proving Grounds will receive the exclusive Tormented Banner of the Opportune to use in-game! Read on for everything you need to know, including exciting changes, to compete in The Great Push Season 2 and show everyone you are the best dungeon-running team in the world:
How The Great Push Works
Any team of five players can register to compete on Gamebattles. Teams will compete in the initial qualifier phase, the Proving Grounds, on December 3-5, where teams will be given two dungeon keystone combinations to push to the highest difficulty they can reach on the tournament realm. The top six teams from the qualifier will be invited to the main tournament, where they will compete across the different Shadowlands and Legion dungeons to push their keystones as high as possible. Four dungeons will be revealed at the start of Day 1; One more dungeon will be revealed at the start of Day 2; The final dungeon will be revealed at the start of Day 3. To keep the stakes high, the bottom team at the end of each day will be eliminated, resulting in only four teams advancing to Day 3 and their shot at the championship. The winning team will be the one who has the highest overall score for dungeons pushed and will be crowned the champion. There are no pre-requisites required to play in the tournament, teams can sign up for The Great Push Season 2 until Monday, November 29! The tournament will be broadcast live on YouTube and Twitch, and players will be able to stream their perspectives during the tournament, including their time in the Proving Grounds. You can choose to follow your favorite team and players while keeping up with the casters for the overall standings throughout the weekend.
Meanwhile, be sure to tune in to the MDI Global Finals where teams will battle for $300,000 USD on October 29-31, only on YouTube. Don’t forget to follow the WoW Esports Twitter for all the updates, memes, and mind-blowing content you could dream of. We’ll see you in the Dungeon Finder!
Blizzard have just posted an overview of the new and improved character customization options coming with patch 9.1.5 for many of the Allied Races
9.1.5 Customization (Source)
With the release of the 9.1.5 content update, players will have access to new character customizations for select races allowing you to create a new version of your hero to take on the dangers of Azeroth. These new character customization options will be available for Highmountain Tauren, Lightforged Draenei, Nightborne, and Void Elves in character creation and with a visit to the in-game Barber. You'll be able to choose new jewelry, new tattoos, new hairstyles, and more.
Here are some examples below of the choices that await you.
Nightborne can also select a new feature allowing the appearance of glowing hands with the new option, "Luminous Hands," in character creation and with a visit to any in-game Barber.
Blizzard added the splash screen for Patch 9.1.5 to the game as the patch nears release. It pops up when you first log in to the game when the update goes live and contains a summary of what's new in the patch.
The highlights of Patch 9.1.5 include:
Legion Timewalking - Challenge yourself in Mythic+ Legion dungeons and the Mage Tower. Leveling Leveled Up! - Improved leveling, reputation, and catch-up gear for alternate characters. Covenant Updates - Freely change your covenant at maximum Renown.
We've datamined certain spell restrictions for the Timewalking Mage Tower in Patch 9.1.5. Check them out!
The latest 9.1.5 update comes with new spell restrictions, rendering players unable to use certain spells while completing challenges in the Timewalking Mage Tower. Here is a list of all spells that will be disabled in the Mage Tower.
Runecarving (Legendary) Powers; Shards of Domination procs; Covenant Signature and Class Abilities; Soulbind Conduit procs; Other item procs from previous expansions, like Spellbound Runic Band of Unrelenting Slaughter [10-15% Primary stat increase] from Warlords, and Wrathion's sockets from MoP (Capacitive Primal Diamond, Courageous Primal Diamond, Indomitable Primal Diamond, Sinister Primal Diamond). Legion Legendaries obviously won’t work because they were disabled in Shadowlands. The Heart of Azeroth from BfA won’t work either.
