What to Do Before Patch 9.2 Goes Live

Recommended Posts

Patch 9.2 is hitting live servers next week, so we compiled a list of things to do before the update goes live.

1. Farm Torghast

In Patch 9.2, the Unity Legendary Power unlocks at Revered with the Enlightened. To craft and upgrade the new Legendary item, you will need Soul Ash and Soul Cinders, so it's not a bad idea to farm Torghast now to get the currencies ahead of time. In Patch 9.2, you can send Soul Cinders to alts, so you won't end up farming Torghast that much...

Note that the Unity belt has Item Level 265 and cannot be upgraded, which means you must craft and upgrade a completely new Legendary item. A brand new Rank 7 Legendary with that power has item level 291.

2. Inspect Your Legendaries

Your currently-equipped Legendary may be the Covenant Legendary Power, which is the same one we're getting in 9.2, so it might be a good idea to inspect if you'll need to recraft a new Legendary item. It's better to do it now than to rush when the update hits live servers.

3. Learn and Upgrade Your Conduits to Item Level 200

You can buy Incense of Infinity Incense of Infinity from Au'Dara <Heirloom Broker> in Oribos near the Flight Master for 500 Gold. The item teaches you all Conduits and raises their item level to 200. You must reach Renown 80 on one of your characters to be able to buy it.

4. Keystone Master Rewards Are Going Away

Shadowlands Season 2 ends with the release of Patch 9.2 and with it the Keystone Master reward Soultwisted Deathwalker Soultwisted Deathwalker can no longer be obtained.

4. Spend Your Conquest!

Now's a good time to get rid of Conquest Points, as they will be converted to gold when the new Season starts.

5. Farm Honor

Honor will not reset so now's a good time to cap it so that you can buy new PvP gear when Season 3 starts.

6. Ahead of the Curve / Cutting Edge Sylvanas Windrunner Raid Achievements

The achievements will be removed on March 1, 2022, so you have two weeks from now to beat Sylvanas on Heroic or Mythic difficulty before the Sepulcher opens. You can find more information here.

The following post is based on MrGM's video that you can watch below.

All set and ready to go. Guild took a huge break so we came back a week ago and started picking up M+ and getting ready for 9.2

I currently have the legendary belt.  What do I need to do?  This is so dang confusing for me.

Its possible to wear 2 legendaries a few weeks into 9.2 

You will get a belt with the covenant specific legendary on it (the covenant powers were introduced in 9.1 at 44 renown) so you want to craft your best other legendary in a different slot.

The belt you recieve will change depending on what covenant you choose, so if you are nightfae it will have the nightfae specific legendary, venthyr the venthyr specific one and so on. If you swap covenant, the belt changes.

Let's be thorough.

Once chapter 7 of Zereth Mortis is unlocked (5th week from the patch's release), you'll get that belt mentioned above with Unity power (power: can be equipped with any other legendary, switches effect based on the current covenant) for completing it.

AND, if you happen to be Revered with the Enlightened at this point, you can also buy the Memory of Unity (functions exactly like any other Runecarver memory upon learning, i.e. account unlock) - which allows you to craft a new legendary with Unity in any gear slot you want in the same manner you craft legendaries now, and upgrade it to 291 like you would a ny other legendary.

So, if your BIS legendary happens to be a belt (say, Brewmaster), and it is not covenant-specific - best thing to do is to buy a 262 non-belt base item now that they are still cheap, and turn it into Unity right away, so you'll have both legendary effects (ilvl is irrelevant for the effects themselves), and then upgrade them to 291 overtime.

If it is covenant-specific and a belt now (like Boomkin) - look up which legendary pairs with it best in 9.2 and craft that one now. And when Unity is avaliable, you can either use the belt provided by campaign, or craft a 262 Unity like in the scenario above - waist slot or otherwise. Given the provided belt is non-upgradable and lacks a socket, I'd still go with crafting 262 Unity, if you can afford an extra base item now.

I'm still not really getting it.  This is one of the most irritatingly confusing things.  Maybe I'm just not asking the right questions.  I only know that I have a legendary belt right now, and I have it maxed out, and it was incredibly, incredibly expensive to do this.  And supposedly this new legendary we'll get will be a belt.  So... I'm just *filtered*?  I don't understand.  All that gold, all that farming torghast, all that time to make my current legendary is just wasted now?  I don't get it.  I don't understand exactly what I'm supposed to do.  I feel like my stomach's in a knot.  Why the hell was making a belt leggo even an option if all of my work is going to be nothing.  I don't understand any of this *filtered*.

Let's try a simpler route then. If you parting ways with your current legendary is absolutely not an option for you, then farm the new rep, buy the memory of unity and craft your second legendary on any armour piece you like.

What about valor? Guess that's gonna be reset again?

Yes, you should buy crafting mats or gear for alts if you want to get the most out of it. More information can be found here.

- This is completely wrong. You can get the achievement and mount before Season 3 starts.

      Content creator MrGM found a glitch that allowed him to create a cross-faction guild on the Patch 9.2.5 PTR.
      Blizzard clearly stated that guilds will remain single-faction in Patch 9.2.5 in a blue post about cross-faction instances.
      (Source)
      Guilds will remain single-faction, and random matchmade activities like Heroic dungeons, Skirmishes, or Random Battlegrounds will all remain same-faction (both because there is less faction-driven pressure around random groups, and to avoid compromising the opt-in nature of the feature by randomly placing a queuing orc in a group with a night elf). However, content creator MrGM found a glitch that allowed him to break the system and create a cross-faction guild on the Patch 9.2.5 PTR.
      The group went with a guild charter into Torghast and created a guild there. Probably any cross-faction content would work to replicate the bug. Players of the opposite faction were able to sign the guild charter it and when the guild was created, each player could invite players from their faction into the guild, meaning Alliance players could invite other Alliance players to join and vice-versa.

      We have another sign of just how close we are to 9.2.5 launching, as Martin Benjamins, a well known dataminer and Community Council member, has spotted that the patch has moved to the production hardware and software side of the PTR! With yesterday's build being labeled as a release candidate and the fact that the move to this side of the PTR usually marks 1 week before the actual launch, could we be seeing the patch as soon as next week?
       
      The big argument against this is we still haven't heard any official announcements from Blizzard on the release date, but usually with patches they do so with the Season ending soon posts, and considering Season 3 is NOT ending when patch 9.2.5 launches, this might be less of an issue. Official patch date announcements tend to come right around the first release candidate appearing so let's see if we hear anything official soon, but until then, there's a solid likelihood of 9.2.5 arriving a lot sooner than expected!

      Fishbones06 is back with more glyph options, this time some very angry and very polearm-y Warriors, and we paired that with one of their earlier works with blacksmith-themed elemental glyphs as well!
      Starting with the Warriors, we have some Alliance/Horde themed ones, with a banner linked to Rallying Cry and polearm + shield combo (which is a bit more of a transmog) on the Alliance side, and all the anger linked to Dragon Roar for Horde. (The image is animated, just click on it if it doesn't auto-start.)
      Then there's an older concept, with some blacksmith-themed Shaman elementals:

      Source.
      And finally, here are some comments from the glyph-maker:
      Exactly, I started making them because if you go to any wow forum, the community has list and list of ideas for Glyphs, but no visual representation.
      ...
      The thrust animation and the ready idle stance is real. The only thing I changed was the arm holding the polearm.
      ...
      I agree, the artist truly are the heroes. I'm just playing and changing the assets they've provided. On classes I dont play much, I rely on class forums on what they would want to see. My goal for this, is to just bring visual representation to these ideas and to push blizzard into consider them and to see the excitement from the community for something like this.

      Content creator MGM found out during Patch 9.2.5 testing that cross-faction queue works for Timewalking raids, which is a neat feature!
      Cross-faction grouping comes with a few limitations; you must be Battle.net Friends with the person you're inviting or you both need to be members of the same cross-faction community. So far, we thought the feature was limited to Mythic+, raids, and Legacy raids.
      It turns out you can queue up for Timewalking raids cross-faction as well. You can learn more about cross-faction play in our overview.

      We're looking at some interesting Genn Greymane audio files from Patch 9.2.5. This post contains spoilers.
      The audio files play during the "Eyes of the Wolf" quest when Greymane sends you to meet Calia Menethil in Brill and spy on the Forsaken as they're gathering in Tirisfal Glades for an unknown purpose.
      Transcript
      Genn Greymane: You must don a disguise and travel deep into enemy territory. Do not let down your guard.
      Genn Greymane: In life, Calia Menethil endured more than her share of sorrow. She may not be a typical undead, but the Forsaken are not to be trusted. 
      Placeholder for tweet 1528767413696733184 Sylvanas no longer unites the Forsaken and your goal is to find out what they are up to. Genn also says "Calia is no typical undead". Do you think Genn will try to hunt her down or attack the Forsaken at their gathering?
      I wouldn't be surprised if he secretly planned a coup. After all, it was Sylvanas who killed his son Liam Greymane.
      Most of the Patch 9.2.5 content remains encrypted, so we don't know exactly what will transpire until the patch hits live servers.
