Warlords of Draenor Alpha: Filling Your Toy Box

Recommended Posts

6195-warlords-of-draenor-alpha-filling-y

Learn how to get all of the Toys in Warlords of Draenor!

Looking for something to pass the time while waiting for the upcoming expansion? Already have your Legendary Cloak and want something else to grind for? How about collecting all of the currently obtainable items which will be changed to Toys in the upcoming expansion! Think your backpack (and bank) can handle it?


We've put together a list of all of the items currently classified as "Toy" in the Warlords of Draenor Alpha. For ease of use, this list is sorted by source of obtaining the Toy. Of course, as this is the current list from the latest Alpha build, the list is subject to change. Items will certainly be added in later Alpha builds, so please keep in mind that this list is in no way indicative of the final Toy Box we will see once the expansion goes live! Please also be aware that some of these items are no longer obtainable. However, there is always a possibility that Blizzard could retroactively re-award or otherwise add a method of re-acquiring these items if they have been deleted. For example, they could mail another inv_misc_enggizmos_20.jpgCrashin' Thrashin' Flyer Controller to all players who have earned the corresponding Feat of Strength. We'll have to wait and see!


Check out our guide detailing where and how to obtain all of the current Toy Box items! Bear in mind that there's are quite a few potential items which are not yet classified as Toys. We'll be updating this guide as more items are added to the Toy Box in future Alpha builds!


Be sure to also check out our preview of the Toy Box UI, which shows off the in-game UI and explains the features!



Achievement


These Toys are earned upon completion of various achievements, some of which require a bit more work than others. Avid Pet Battlers will probably appreciate the Safari Hat being added to the Toy Box!
  • inv_holiday_brewfestbuff_01.jpgHonorary Brewmaster Keg
    This item is awarded by the achievement inv_misc_archaeology_vrykuldrinkinghorn.Pub Crawl, which requires the player to complete a variety of achievements within the Brewmoon Festival, Unga Ingoo, A Brewing Storm and Greenstone Village scenarios. The achievements can be earned on any difficulty, but all meta-achievements must be earned on the same character.
  • inv_helm_cloth_petsafari_a_01.jpgSafari Hat
    This item is awarded by the achievement inv_pet_achievement_defeatpettamer.jpgTaming the World, which requires the player to defeat 40 Master Pet Tamers in Pet Battles across the world.
  • inv_misc_book_11.jpgThe Schools of Arcane Magic - Mastery
    This item is awarded by the achievement inv_misc_book_11.jpgHigher Learning, which requires the player to find and read all of the volumes of "The Schools of Arcane Magic" found in Dalaran. The books are random spawns and this can be a time-consuming activity, as the books will only spawn every couple of hours.
  • inv_misc_coin_18.jpgTitanium Seal of Dalaran
    This item is awarded by the achievement inv_misc_coin_02.jpgThe Coin Master, which requires the player to complete three Fishing meta achievements. The player must fish every single character's lucky coin out of the Dalaran fountain, so this can be another time-consuming Toy to earn!


Archaeology


All archaeology Toys can be randomly discovered when completing artifacts for their respective branch. All Toys are Rare quality discoveries. Do keep in mind that certain branches of Archaeology will have minimum skill level requirements in order to access dig sites to survey. Good luck!

Night Elf Archeology (75 Archaeology Skill Required)Dwarf Archeology (75 Archaeology Skill Required)Draenei Archaeology (300 Archaeology Skill Required)Nerubian Archaeology (350 Archaeology Skill Required)Tol'Vir Archeology (450 Archaeology Skill Required)

Dropped by NPCs


These Toy items have a rare chance to drop from mobs around the world (mostly in Pandaria). Most of the items have specific drop sources, which are typically rare spawns found in Mists of Pandaria zones. To make locating the mobs and farming these drops easier, the drop lists have been organized by the general location of the source mob's spawn.

Mists of Pandaria Toy Drops
Valley of the Four WindsKun-Lai SummitDread WastesVale of Eternal BlossomsTimeless Isle Toy DropsIsle of Thunder Toy DropsNon-Pandaria Toy Drops

Miscellaneous Sources


These Toys didn't really fit best in any other category due to the special circumstances of being obtained. Some of these toys are significantly harder to acquire (inv_ingot_04.jpgUnsealed Chest items, I'm looking at you)!

Professions


Engineers rejoice! The various crafted teleporters are now considered Toys, and you can easily hotkey your various teleportation Toys and free up some bagspace! It's worth nothing that while the Wormhole Generators are not currently included on this list, there's certainly no reason we can't expect them to be added in a later build.
  • inv_misc_enggizmos_07.jpgDimensional Ripper - Area 52
    Crafted by Engineering. Requires 350 Goblin Engineering to craft and use. Binds when used, can only be used by Goblin Engineers. Will not show up as incomplete in a Gnomish Engineering character's Toy Box.
  • inv_misc_enggizmos_12.jpgUltrasafe Transporter: Toshley's Station

  • inv_misc_enggizmos_12.jpgUltrasafe Transporter: Gadgetzan
    Crafted by Gnomish Engineering. Requires 260 Gnomish Engineering to craft and use. Binds when used, can only be used by Gnomish Engineers. Will not show up as incomplete in a Goblin Engineering character's Toy Box.
  • inv_misc_book_07.jpgRituals of the New Moon
    Crafted by Inscription. Requires 350 Inscription to craft. Binds when equipped, can be used by anyone. When this item is crafted, it creates one of four items. Each item has a different color wolf transformation (Grey, White, Red and Black) and the Toy Box has slots for all four. Players will be able to purchase this item on the Auction House.


Purchased


These Toys can be purchased from vendors for either gold or a special currency. No special reputation is required for these items, making them some of the more relatively accessible Toys.
  • inv_misc_head_clockworkgnome_01.jpgWind-Up Train Wrecker
    This item can be purchased from toy vendors in Orgrimmar, Stormwind and Dalaran for 250 gold. It may also be found in the inv_holiday_christmas_present_01.jpgStolen Present obtainable during the Feast of Winter Veil.
Requires a Special Currency

Questing


These Toys are rewarded from quest chains at various levels. There are quite a few more quest reward items that players would certainly consider a Toy, such as the ever-so-popular inv_misc_gem_variety_02.jpgRainbow Generator and the loveable inv_jewelcrafting_goldenhare.jpgPuntable Marmot. It's worth mentioning that the latter was originally included in the first screenshots revealed of the Toy Box, even though it isn't listed in the current build. Of course, we can expect quite a few additions to the Toy Box, so don't worry if your favorite Toy isn't listed!
  • achievement_reputation_kirintor_offensivKirin Tor Beacon
    Awarded upon completion of the quest The Storm Gathers, which requires the player to travel to the Isle of Thunder. Available to Alliance characters only, and will not show up as incomplete in a Horde character's Toy Box.
  • achievement_faction_sunreaveronslaught.jSunreaver Beacon
    Awarded upon completion of the quest The Storm Gathers, which requires the player to travel to the Isle of Thunder. Available to Horde characters only, and will not show up as incomplete in a Alliance character's Toy Box.
  • inv_qirajidol_war.jpgTime-Lost Figurine
    Drops from Terokk, Level 72 Elite in Terokkar Forest. This mob can only be fought during the quest Terokk's Downfall, which is a Sha'tari Skyguard quest available at Skettis in the Terokkar Forest. To obtain the quest, players must start the quest chain with the quest World of Shadows, available from Severin. The trinket is not a guaranteed drop.


Reputation


These Toys are obtained as rewards from various reputations. Each of these items requires a specific reputation level with its respective faction in order to be purchased. Some may also require specific currencies to be purchased.
  • inv_shirt_guildtabard_01.jpgArgent Crusader's Tabard
    Sold by Dame Evniki Kapsalis in Icecrown for 50 ability_paladin_artofwar.jpg [/wowicon]Champion's Seals. This item can only be purchased once the player has championed all factions of the Argent Tournament, earned Exalted status with as well as the right to represent every Alliance or Horde race's faction in the Argent Tournament. Quite a bit of time is required to obtain this item, as reputation is earned primarily through daily questing, but the daily quests are relatively easy to complete for a max-level character.
  • inv_fishingchair.jpgNat's Fishing Chair
    This item will be mailed to a character upon reaching Best Friends reputation with Nat Pagle. Reputation is earned by turning in rare fish to Nat Pagle in Krasarang Wilds.


Trading Card Game


This items can only be obtained by redeeming codes found on corresponding loot cards from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game. The cards are only somewhat rare, and while sets will go out-of-print, it's not uncommon to find cards from older sets online on sites such as eBay. Be prepared to pay a bit for some of these items, as the average sale price is around $35.00 per item. You can find listings on WoW TCG Loot.
  • achievement_boss_illidan.jpgDemon Hunter's Aspect
    Redeemable from the loot card "Demon Hunter's Aspect" in the War of the Ancients expansion.

World Event


These Toys can be only be obtained during specific world events. You can check out the in-game calendar (/calendar) to find out the dates and duration of each in-game world event. Many of these items require event-specific currencies which can be earned via daily quests.
  • inv_misc_football.jpgThe Pigskin
    This item is sold by toy vendors found in major cities for 40 gold. It can also be found in the inv_holiday_christmas_present_01.jpgStolen Present rewarded from the daily quest You're a Mean One... This item is only available during Feast of Winter Veil world event.

    This item is sold by event vendors found inside (and outside) of Ironforge and Orgrimmar for 100 inv_misc_coin_01.jpgBrewfest Prize Token. This item is only available during the Brewfest world event.


No Longer Available


There are a handful of items in the current Toy Box that are no longer obtainable. These items were rewards from specific in-game events which have since been removed, so it is not likely that Blizzard will re-introduce any of these items. There is no word yet on whether or not Blizzard will be able to retroactively re-award any of these items, though most of them do have corresponding achievements which can indicate that the item was earned. We will have to see how Blizzard decides to handle this.
  • inv_misc_orb_03.jpgMini Mana Bomb
    This item was awarded to Horde players at the conclusion of the Mists of Pandaria Fall of Theramore launch event.
  • inv_misc_tournaments_symbol_troll.jpgDarkspear Pride

This is a really impressive guide!  I'm going to grind a few of these out myself.

Yes, this really is an excellent topic to bring up, as I was just thinking about some of the things I was going to do until the next expansion comes along. Thank you miyari for taking the time to create such a thorough & complete list, perfect for a 'completionist like myself. I love it!

So many of these toys are actually pretty hard to get! I don't even have the most of them; most of the toys I have aren't on the list yet (but there's no reason they won't be), so I'm not sure if I can yet spare the inventory space. I've long since dumped tons and tons of gear, though, so I technically do have the room, I guess. I always do a mass-purging of items prior to expansions; I'm pretty sure we'll get that extra void storage prior to the expansion release, so that'll certainly help!

Ive been looking for a list such as this, and until now all I have found is screenshots of various pages. I was looking to see if the Brazier of Dancing Flames (purchasable in Midsummer Festival for 350 Burning Blossoms) was in the toy box. From the below screenie I found it was,,, but it may have since been removed... still for the sake of an hour farming the bonfires might be a worthwhile purchase for anyone wanting to complete the toy box.

Yeah, definitely keep in mind that this list is Blizzard's first real sweep since implementing the feature and they're bound to add a ton more items to the Toy Box in future Beta updates, so don't get distraught!

Blessing of the old god is in the toy box in beta but not in your archeology list. You also have a few listed that aren't toys, is that because they will become part of the toy box later on?

Miyari is no longer working with us, so it is unlikely that she will come and answer your question or update the guide sad.png

      Some Mythic+ news today, as the new seasonal affix, Corrupted, has gone up on the PTR and is available to test, but we also got word of some additional changes to another affix come the nest season. Quaking is getting a revamp, as it will no longer be able to damage the player affected, but the damage to nearby players will be increased.

      The new seasonal affix has an additional benefit, as when you enter Ny'alotha and fight the lieutenant, you can kite him to wherever you want in the dungeon and exit there when you've killed him, allowing you to skip a whole lot of trash (since you can move around the dungeon while in Ny'alotha, as you're phased out from the regular mobs etc).
      Season 4 M+ Affixes (source)
      With today’s update to the Visions of N’Zoth PTR, testers can now experience the new affix coming to Mythic Keystone dungeons in Season 4.
      When a Mythic Keystone dungeon is Corrupted, players will find obelisks throughout the dungeon that allow you to enter Ny’alotha and confront powerful servants of N’Zoth. With each obelisk, players must make a terrible choice, as all servants that are not killed will join the final boss encounter.
      In order to test this quickly, PTR-only Keystone vendors have been placed Boralus and Dazar’alor. They sell customizable Keystones and scrolls that can be used to set the level and affixes of the Keystones.
      Notably, Season 4 also has a change that we’re making to the Quaking affix. Now, players can no longer damage themselves with this effect, and damage to nearby allies is increased from 20% to 40% of maximum health. Please reply to this forum thread with your feedback on the new affix, and thank you for testing Visions of N’Zoth with us!

      The alternative to Titanforging has been revealed on 8.3 PTR! Items from Ny'alotha will drop with random Benthic-like effects and a +Corruption stat which grants side effects. Higher Corruption increases the number of side effects and their strenghts and alters the appearance of your character.
      Check out our Patch 8.3 Content Hub for the latest Visions of N'Zoth news!
       
      Same Item Level, Still Too Much RNG-Based
      Ny'alotha comes with Corrupted gear with Benthic-like effects and side effects. The Benthic-like effects on the items will still be random and the amount of Corruption an item can have varies too. Primary/secondary stats and item level currently don't change on 8.3 PTR.
      Here are three different versions of one item. They rolled with +6, +14, and +24 Corruption and random Benthic-like effects. Ideally, you want an item with the least possible Corruption and the best effect. The Benthic-like component varies too. We've seen one item increase our Leech by 2% where another one increased it by 4%, so there's still a lot of RNG involved.



      Your Corruption, Resistance, and Total Corruption are displayed in the Character Panel.

      Side Effects
      A total of four side effects (debuffs) activate and grow in power at various levels of Corruption.
      Grasping Tendrils (10+ Corruption) - Taking damage has a chance to slow your movement speed for 5 sec. The magnitude of the slow increases with further Corruption. Corrupted Zone (20+ Corruption) - Your spells and abilities have a chance to create a corrupted zone at your location, dealing Shadow damage to you every 2 sec. The size and damage of the corrupted zone increases with higher Corruption. Grand Delusions (40+ Corruption) - Taking damage has a chance to summon a Thing from Beyond, which pursues you for 10 seconds. Its speed increases with further Corruption. Creeping Death (60+ Corruption) - Damage taken increased by 10% and healing reduced by 10%. At Corruption Level 106, damage taken is increased and healing taken reduced by 56%. Uncorrupted vs Corrupted Character
      The character grows darker and pulses with Void energy based on the level of Corruption.

      Cleansing Corruption
      Heart of Azeroth will have an infinite progression slot to aid you against N’Zoth’s corruption at max level in Patch 8.3. New 8.3 Essences reduce Corruption by 10. In addition to that, we found some global strings associated with cleansing Corrupted items, which is in line with our theory that you will be able to use a currency to get rid of their side effects in Visions of N'Zoth: ITEM_CORRUPTION_BONUS_STAT - +%d Corruption CORRUPTION_CLEANSER_TOOLTIP_TITLE - Cleansing this item will REMOVE the following effects: CORRUPTION_TOOLTIP_TITLE - You are Corrupted! CORRUPTION_TOOLTIP_LINE - Corruption: CORRUPTION_RESISTANCE_TOOLTIP_LINE - Corruption Resistance: CORRUPTION_DESCRIPTION - Higher Corruption increases the number of side effects and their strengths TOTAL_CORRUPTION_TOOLTIP_LINE - Total Corruption: Learn more about Corrupted items, the alternative to Titanforging coming in Patch 8.3!

      Visions of N'Zoth is Battle for Azeroth's final major content patch, where we take the battle to N'Zoth himself and visit Ny'alotha. Our hub covers everything you need to know about Patch 8.3 and helps you stay on track if you haven't been playing the game for a while.
      Patch 8.3 Release Date
      While nothing has been officially confirmed, we think the patch is going to hit live servers on December 2019. Datamined sound files suggest that Ny'alotha, the Waking City raid, might be delayed until Patch 8.3.5 and not open immediately when Visions of N'Zoth goes live, which would delay the new Mythic+ Season as well.
      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas talked about Visions of N'Zoth in the latest Content Preview on October 7. We learned pretty much everything about the new patch, and in the following section, you're going to find its main features:
      Assaults
      Invasions return to the game once more, and this time, they're called Assaults. The Vale of Eternal Blossoms and Uldum will be periodically under assault by N'Zoth's forces, and your goal is to drive them back by completing quests and interacting with various objectives to complete the "emissary." Blizzard uses technology and everything they've learned from Mechagon and Nazjatar in this new iteration of Assaults to ensure dynamic replayability. Assaults are mandatory if you want to enter Horrific Visions.
      Initial Preview of Assaults in Visions of N'Zoth Horrific Visions
      Described as alternate realities where N'Zoth's power is ascendant, these are 1-5 player "scenarios" of Stormwind and Orgrimmar, where you need to complete various objectives for rewards. Horrific Visions revolve around a new mechanic called Sanity, which starts draining as soon as you enter a Horrific Vision. Your goal is to complete as many side objectives as possible and defeating the mini-boss before your Sanity is completely depleted.
      To help you with that, we've got Wrathion with a new Legendary Cloak and a Titanic Research Archive for Horrific Visions with perks that gradually trivialize the feature.
      Ny'alotha, the Waking City
      We will be facing N'Zoth in Ny'alotha, the new twelve-boss raid located in Uldum. It comes with a raid skip quest after you defeat the first boss and new sets up for grabs:
      Ny'alotha Cloth Sets Preview Ny'alotha Leather Sets Preview Ny'alotha Mail Sets Preview Ny'alotha Plate Sets Preview We've also covered the continuation of the story in Patch 8.3 and what happens in the raid in the articles below:
      New Forsaken Leadership in Patch 8.3 (Spoilers) Azshara's Bargain and the Key to Defeating N'Zoth (Spoilers) I'lgynoth's Whispers in Patch 8.3 (Analysis) N'Zoth's in-game model has been updated multiple times.
      Rewards Updates
      Visions of N'Zoth comes with two new factions, six new Essences, a brand new Mythic Season, a new Seasonal affix, Profession updates, and more that we'll cover soon.
      Heart of Azeroth will have a new Minor slot, two Stamina nodes, the maximum level increased to 85 (was 70). Coming in a later PTR update, Blizzard will be adding an infinite progression slot to aid you against N'Zoth's corruption at max level.
      New Allied Races: Vulpera & Mechagnomes
      Another pair of Allied Races will become available in Visions of N'Zoth. Alliance players will be able to recruit Mechagnomes, and their Horde counterpart are the Vulpera of Vol'dun.
      Official Mechagnomes & Vulpera Preview Mechagnomes & Vulpera Racials Mechagnomes & Vulpera Unlock Requirements Vulpera Heritage Armor Preview Mechagnome Heritage Armor Preview Mechagnome & Vulpera Dance Animations Vulpera Tidbits: Racial Mount, Shaman Totems, Hunter Pet New Heritage Armor: Goblins & Worgen
      Goblins and Worgen received new models and animations in Patch 8.2.5, but no Heritage Armor, which is added in Patch 8.3.
      Goblin & Worgen Heritage Armor Sets Preview Auction House Overhaul
      The Auction House will be completely revamped. No more lag caused by the system being clogged with single stacks. Stackable items are no longer purchased or sold in stacks; copper is no longer displayed in the Auction House, but used for calculations. If you regularly forget the name of goods, you can create a shopping list, and more!
      Auction House Revamp Preview The Removal of Titanforging
      Ion teased the removal of Titanforging in Patch 8.3 through something more "twisted and corrupt." We found some interesting Corrupted Rings from Ny'alotha with various Kiss/Curse Effects.
      Based on datamining and game assets, we found out that 8.3 items have a +Corruption stat and based on your Corruption level come various side effects which can be cleansed.
      Are Cursed Items the Alternative to Titanforging? (Theory) Cursed Items and Corruption (Titanforging Alternative) Explained Class Changes
      No patch would be complete without some class changes, and you can find all class changes planned for Visions of N'Zoth here.
      Allied Race & Pandaren Death Knights
      We found encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Mograine together with Death Knight creature textures for Allied Races and the Pandaren, and new Death Knight Swords of the Ebon Blade.
      We think Allied Races and the Pandaren will be able to roll Death Knights in the near future, and there is at least a partial revamp of the Death Knight starting area planned now that Bolvar is the Lich King. Given that the files are encrypted, it's likely that this bit will be unveiled at this year's BlizzCon.
      New Mounts
      As usual, with every content update, multiple mounts are coming with placeholder descriptions, sources, and whatnot.
      Alpaca Mounts - Presumably, new reputation mounts available for purchase at Exalted. Chalcedony Cloud Serpent - A new recolor of the existing serpent, possibly tied to the Assault on Vale. N'Zoth Serpent - New Stormsong Valley Rare Mount from the Adherent of the Abyss. Aqir Flying Mount - Mythic N'Zoth mount, maybe? Ny'alotha Allseer - Ahead of the Curve reward? Island Expedition Vendors
      In Patch 8.3, you will be able to purchase Island-specific and Invasion-specific crates for Dubloons.
      New Dubloon Vendors Selling Island Expedition and Invasion Crates 3 New World Bosses
      Blizzard is adding three new world bosses to the game, which drop item level 445 loot.
      Miscellaneous
      Other minor things planned for Patch 8.3 include:
      A new PvP event where players can serve N'Zoth, similar to Talon's Vengeance. Heroic difficulty for the Darkshore Warfront. Division of Operation: Mechagon into two wings, each with Heroic and Mythic Keystone difficulties. Darkmoon Arcade, allowing you to play your favorite mini-games at the Darkmoon Faire. Deepwind Gorge updated to be a capture point map. New Battle Pets and Pet Battle Dungeon - Blackrock Depths. New Story Quests: Rise of N'Zoth ...and more! We'll be periodically updating this hub with more details!
      Vision of N'zoth is the final major content patch of BfA, and here's our hub with everything you need to know.
    • By Stan
      In this week's 8.3 PTR build, Blizzard's reducing the effectiveness of Deathbolt and buffing Drain Soul and Nightfall. You can find a complete overview of all Visions of N'Zoth class changes here.
      Blizzard (Source)
      I’ve updated the Affliction section in the OP with recent new changes. It now reads:
      Warlock Affliction Deathbolt now deals 20% of the total remaining damage of the Warlock’s damage over time effects on the target (was 30%). Drain Soul damage increased by 50%. Nightfall now increases the damage of Shadow Bolt by 50% (was 25%), and now activates 33% more often. Developers’ notes: One of the key concepts about Affliction Warlock is spreading damage over time spells on a number of different targets. While Deathbolt keys off these types of spells, it provides more-than-expected burst damage and outperforms the other two talents in every situation. In addition to reducing Deathbolt’s effectiveness, we’re improving the other two options to give more options to Affliction Warlocks.
    • By Stan
      Here is a an updated blog post with all Class changes coming in Patch 8.3.
      Check out our Visions of N'Zoth Content Hub for more details!
      Blizzard (Source)
      In our next major content update, Visions of N’Zoth, we’re working on some tuning updates to a few specs that are under- and over-performing in various ways.
      Developers’ notes: Specs which excel at DoTs on multiple targets have, over the course of many tiers of content, generally had very high performance on the average. Their DPS advantage in raid encounters that play into their multi-target strength (which are relatively common) is not balanced by a comparable disadvantage in other areas. A small reduction in damage on these specs will leave them noticeably strong in the situations in which they’re strong (albeit slightly less than before), and give other specs more opportunity to stand out at other times. At the same time, a few of the Essences added in Rise of Azshara are not performing as well as we would have liked, so we’re increasing the effectiveness of some parts of them to help keep them competitive with the other Essences available.
      With the first build of the update on our Public Test Realm (PTR), you will see the following changes:
      Classes
      Druid Balance Moonfire damage and periodic damage reduced by 10%. Sunfire damage and periodic damage reduced by 10%. High Noon (Azerite Trait) damage increased by 11%. Power of the Moon (Azerite Trait) damage increased by 11%. Mage Frost Ice Lance damage increased by 20%. Developers’ note: Ice Lance damage hasn’t kept up with Icicles scaling, making builds that ignore Ice Lance possible. The intent of this change is to give Frost Mages a better incentive to use Ice Lance within their rotation, as a DPS net gain. Monk Brewmaster Stamina bonus reduced to 30% (was 35%). Stagger percentage reduced to 90% of Agility (was 105%). High Tolerance now increases the effectiveness of Stagger by 5% (was 8%). Developers’ notes: Brewmaster’s extremely high effective health against Physical damage meant that they are rarely in danger against spike damage that threatens other tanks. This should still be a strength of Brewmaster, but not by such a wide margin. Fixed a bug causing Gift of the Ox orbs to spawn too often for players with high amounts of Stamina. Mistweaver Rising Mist healing increased 30%, and now extends Heal-over-time effects by 3 seconds (was 2 seconds). [Coming in a future PTR build] Developers’ note: This talent is currently overshadowed on its row, and we want to make sure it’s competitive enough to make its unique playstyle a viable option. Life Cocoon now absorbs for 55% of the caster’s maximum health (was 1100% of the caster’s spellpower). [Coming in a future PTR build] Developers’ note: This ability had gotten weaker compared to player health pools since the start of the expansion, and this will help it better maintain its value. Windwalker Rising Sun Kick damage increased by 25%. Blackout Kick damage increased by 10%. Developers’ note: These changes are intended to help Windwalkers perform better in single-target fights. Paladin Holy Glimmer of Light (Azerite Trait) may now be applied to a maximum of 8 targets. Developers’ notes: Over the past year, builds centered around this trait have steadily pulled ahead of all other Holy Paladin playstyles, and to some extent all other healers in high-end content. This change is meant to preserve the gameplay of the trait, but limit the ability to increase its value drastically by stacking every possible bonus that reduces Holy Shock cooldown. Priest Discipline Atonement healing reduced to 50% (was 55%). Mastery: Grace effectiveness increased by 12%. Developers’ notes: Discipline’s ability to contribute both damage and healing is slightly too high for what one character can bring to a group composition. At the same time, we’re making their Mastery stat slightly more attractive. Schism now increases damage done from Priest spells and abilities only. Developers’ notes: This is intended to be consistent with other class cooldowns. Shadow Auspicious Spirits damage bonus reduced to 25% (was 50%). Fixed a bug causing Spiteful Apparitions (Azerite Trait) to be increased by 75% if you do not have Auspicious Spirits talented. Developers’ notes: The multiplicative interaction between Auspicious Spirits, Spiteful Apparitions, and Chorus of Insanity has specifically been a big part of Shadow’s damage scaling somewhat out of control at high target counts. Chorus of Insanity critical strike bonus reduced by 25%. Shadow Word: Pain damage reduced by 8%. Vampiric Touch damage reduced by 8%. Warlock Affliction Deathbolt now deals 20% of the total remaining damage of the Warlock’s damage over time effects on the target (was 30%). Drain Soul damage increased by 50%. Nightfall now increases the damage of Shadow Bolt by 50% (was 25%), and now activates 33% more often. Developers’ notes: One of the key concepts about Affliction Warlock is spreading damage over time spells on a number of different targets. While Deathbolt keys off these types of spells, it provides more-than-expected burst damage and outperforms the other two talents in every situation. In addition to reducing Deathbolt’s effectiveness, we’re improving the other two options to give more options to Affliction Warlocks. Essences
      Worldvein Resonance Major rank 1, when used, now additionally causes you to gain +50% bonus to stats from Lifeblood Shards for 10 seconds. Vision of Perfection Proc rate increased by 12%. Unbound Force Major rank 1 damage increased by 40%. Minor rank 1 duration increased to 4 seconds (was 3 seconds). Minor rank 3 increase of duration increased to 2 seconds (was 1 second). Purification Protocol Major rank 1 damage increased by 15%. Major rank 2 now has the potential work on targets that are part of raid and dungeon encounters. Vitality Conduit We’ve rebuilt the way this Essences works, and it should be visually more impactful, as you will now see healing on your targets. As always, changes like these are a work in progress. We are likely to make further adjustments for testing throughout the PTR.
      Thank you very much for your testing and feedback!
