An Early Preview of the Cypher of the First Ones Progression System in Patch 9.2

Recommended Posts

An early look at the Cypher of the First Ones progression system in Patch 9.2 and the perks it unlocks.


Disclaimer: This is a very early preview of the new progression system in Patch 9.2. Many perks haven't been added yet. For example, Blizzard mentioned we will be able to unlock the ability to wear 2 legendaries at once and flying through the Cypher Research Console.

In Zereth Mortis, we will be farming a new currency called "Cyphers of the First Ones". The tooltip describes cyphers as "ineffable echoes of the power used to forge reality itself."

The currency is used to unlock perks in the new Cypher of the First Ones progression system in Eternity's End. Blizzard offered a brief preview of the Cypher Research Console perks UI in the 9.2 press kit.

The Cypher Research Console has Cypher Equipment Level 1/6 at the beginning and you must spend 740 Cyphers of the First Ones to increase the effectiveness of your Cypher equipment.

As you can see above, the system is quite elaborate, and during our journey through Zereth Mortis, we'll gradually unlock perks in different avenues of understanding.

During our testing, the console had just four rows and perks that we highlight below.

      We're looking at a strange bug that affects some proto-drake mounts on live servers.
      Many players are reporting issues with their proto-drake mounts on Reddit. The first report is from 5 days ago. The bug affects Reins of the Time-Lost Proto-Drake, which for some reason, no longer flies in the middle of the screen, and its run animation is twice the speed of other proto-drake mounts.

      Apparently, Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake is experiencing the same issues while Reins of the Ironbound Proto-Drake and Reins of the Rusted Proto-Drake work as they should.

      The second report is from 3 months ago and showcases the strange mount animation. It claims that all proto-drake mounts except for those from Ulduar are affected by the bug.

      Did you experience this strange bug on live servers?

      Patch 9.2.5 appears to be the first update to the game where major story elements remain heavily encrypted. In the latest PTR update, Blizzard shipped an encrypted 9.2.5 splash screen, which is something they've never done before.
      Players are prompted with a splash screen when they log in to the game for the first time when an update goes live. It shows you what's new in the patch. Here's the splash screen for Patch 9.2.

      The splash screen for Patch 9.2.5 was shipped in the latest build, but it is encrypted and cannot be previewed. Maybe it has something to do with the mysterious Stormwind and Orgrimmar updates or the Forsaken (spoiler alert).
      However, the splash screen text for Patch 9.2.5 is available for preview but contains no spoilers.
      New in Season 4! Shadowlands Season 4 - Earn new rewards in Mythic Keystone dungeons and PvP. New Mythic+ Dungeons - Experience iconic legacy dungeons with Mythic affixes! Fated Raids - Return to Shadowlands raids for a new challenge and new rewards.

      Reddit user nazranramlee noticed something interesting while visiting their local hospital in Malaysia. The TV was showing the Mists of Pandaria trailer on repeat.

      Apparently, this isn't specific to just one hospital in the country.
      Reddit user aimlessart saw the same trailer playing over and over in another hospital they have been visiting for over 6 years, claiming they both might have been set up by the same contractor who thought the Mists of Pandaria trailer looked visually appealing for entertainment purposes.
      The contractor most likely never bothered to update the visuals again, which is why the TVs are constantly running the same Mists of Pandaria trailer while people wait in queue.
