Achievements

  • Tales of the Exile will now track credit more reliably. Characters who have already completed portions of this achievement and did not get credit will be awarded credit on those portions upon their next login.

Classes

  • Druid
    • Balance
      • Fixed an issue where Ravenous Frenzy Ravenous Frenzy (Venthyr Ability) granted an additional stack for simultaneous casts (i.e. Stampeding Roar Stampeding Roar giving a stack for both the cast and form change).
      • Fixed an issue where Kindred Affinity Kindred Affinity (Kyrian Ability) granted your partner too much of a stat increase when Empowered.
  • Hunter
    • The bleed effect from Pouch of Razor Fragments Pouch of Razor Fragments (Runecarving Power) will no longer be applied to targets who are affected by crowd control effects that can break from taking damage.

Creatures and NPCs

  • Fixed an issue where the map markers for rares would continue to appear after already being looted for the day.

Cypher of the First Ones

  • Fixed an issue in Fugueal Protolock that allowed players to click on previously cleared nodes, causing the Protolock to become incompletable.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Fugueal Protolock given during the quest, "Your First Fugueal Protolock," to reset prematurely.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Spires of Ascension
    • Fixed an issue where some player abilities were causing the final group of enemies before Devos to reset.

Items and Rewards

  • [With realm restarts] Participation thresholds have been updated for the Great Vault for Shadowlands Season 3:
    • The first Raid Vault now requires 2 Raid Boss victories (was 3).
    • The second Raid Vault now requires 5 Raid Boss victories (was 6).
    • The third Raid Vault now requires 8 Raid Boss victories (was 9).
      • Developer's note: These thresholds for the raid will map better to the structure of the Sepulcher of the First Ones raid, especially for groups attempting to move from one difficulty up into the next.
    • The third Mythic+ Vault now requires 8 completed dungeons (was 10).
    • The third PvP Vault now requires 5500 Honor earned in Rated PvP (was 6250).
      • Developer's note: We want to make these feel a little more attainable, even as aspirational goals for highly-engaged players who love that type of content.
  • Fixed an issue where players with unclaimed Great Vault rewards could become unable to acquire a Mythic Keystone until the following week. If you do not receive your Mythic Keystone as expected for any reason, you may speak to Ta'hsup in the Hall of Holding in Oribos to retrieve it.
  • Fixed an issue that caused a Forgotten Treasure Vault to be stuck in a pillar.

Player versus Player

  • Honorable kills in Zereth Mortis now count as progress towards the quest "Against Overwhelming Odds."
  • Druid
  • Priest
    • Holy
      • When Spirit of the Redeemer Spirit of the Redeemer (PvP Talent) is used in conjunction with Afterlife Afterlife (Talent) to resurrect an ally, the Priest will now sacrifice their spirit and not return to life.
  • Shaman
    • Enhancement
      • Sundering Sundering (Talent) will no longer incorrectly both consume the effects of Gladiator's Resolve and apply its incapacitate effect to players under the effects of Gladiator's Resolve.

Quests

  • Fixed an issue where Xy agents could sometimes not become targetable during the quest, "Xy Are You Doing This?"
  • Vulpera slaves during the quest "Teleport Self Teleport Self” now always give credit to their liberators for the quest when freed, and once again accept the help of Alliance players.

Torghast, Tower of the Damned

  • Adamant Vaults layers 13—16 now also awards Anima on completion.

What about the bulging roots not spawning for the gluttonous overgrowth where's the fix for that ? Or is this another rare that won't spawn all the time like relwik in korthia ?

They're just really pouring themselves into this patch and game at this point.

I could be wrong I guess but it seems kinda obvious to me.

      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.

      Blizzard has updated some abilities cast by Nathrezim Infiltrators in the first Release Candidate of Patch 9.2.5.
      Introduction to the Season 4 Affix
      The Season 4 affix is called Shrouded and causes groups of mobs to hide a dreadlord that gives you stackable buffs upon death.
      Shrouded - Nathrezim infiltrators have disguised themselves among enemies throughout the dungeon. Cartel Ta will reward you handsomely for assisting in their capture. How Does the Season 4 Affix Work?
      At the beginning of each Mythic+ Dungeon, there is a bounty hunter NPC who offers you Critical Strike/Haste/Mastery/Versatility buffs for each dreadlords you help capture, stacking up to 20 times.
      Bounty: Critical Strike - Critical Strike increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Haste - Haste increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Mastery - Mastery increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Versatility - Versatility increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. After you make your choice, you will be granted a 2% buff to the secondary stat of your choice.
      Nathrezim Infiltrators
      Throughout the dungeons, some NPCs will have a purple aura and the Disguised debuff. These will transform into Nathrezim Infiltrators when you enter combat. Nathrezim Infiltrators replace regular trash mobs in dungeons, so this might directly affect Mythic routes.
      Nathrezim Infiltrators cannot be stunned or death-gripped. The spells are not interruptible.

      When the dreadlord is captured you will receive another +2% secondary stat increase (on top of what you had at the beginning, as this buff stacks up to 20. Shortly after the dreadlord is captured, you'll receive another buff which restores 6% health and mana every second for 3 seconds.
      Restoration - Restoring 6% health and mana every 1 sec. What Abilities do Nathrezim Infiltrators Use?
      Nathrezim Infiltrators will use 3 abilities. The first one is a frontal cone which reduces healing received for a short duration, the second one heals the dreadlord for a portion of the damage inflicted and the third one puts the player into a statis.
      Blizzard adjusted two abilities used by Nathrezim Infiltrators in the Patch 9.2.5 Release Candidate this week. We highlighted the changes below.
      Vampiric Claws - Strikes the target inflicting 50 45 Shadow damage and healing for [ 10,000% of E1 ]% of the damage dealt. (20 yd range, 3 sec cooldown, 1.5 sec cast)
      Carrion Swarm - Inflicts 35 38 Shadow damage to enemies in front of the dreadlord and reduces healing received by 25% 50% for 10 sec. (100 yd range, 3 sec cooldown, 2.5 sec cast)
      Nightmare Cloud - Creates a wandering Nightmare Cloud for until cancelled. Coming into contact with a Nightmare Cloud afflicts players with [email protected] (3 sec cooldown, 2 sec cast)
