Lords of Dread Encounter Designer on Dreadlord Transformations

Recommended Posts

59242-the-dreadlords-and-sire-denathrius

Senior Encounter Designer Kenneth Huang who's behind the Lords of Dread encounter shared his opinion surrounding dreadlords and their transformations in Patch 9.2.

The community found a nice easter egg during the Lords of Dread encounter in Sepulcher of the First Ones. Mal'Ganis and Kin'tessa were taking on the forms of various dungeon and raid bosses in the game since Vanilla.

The bosses drop items like Alandien's Tortured Twinblades Alandien's Tortured Twinblades with the flavor text mentioning "Kin'tessa's favorite disguise". Here is a full list of disguises Mal'Ganis and Kin'tessa have taken on since Vanilla, taken from the official forums:

  • Pyromancer Loregrain (Tauren in Blackrock Depths)
  • Galgann Firehammer (Dwarf in Uldaman)
  • Darkweaver Syth (Arakkoa in Sethekk Halls)
  • Nethermancer Sepethrea (Mechanar)
  • Skarvald the Constructor (Utgarde Keep)
  • Cyanigosa (Blue Dragon in Violet Hold)
  • Warmaster Blackhorn (Dragon Soul)
  • High Priestess Azil (Stonecore)
  • Wise Mari (Temple of the Jade Serpent)
  • Xin the Weaponmaster (Mogu'shan Palace)
  • Imonar the Soulhunter (Antorus)
  • Talixae Flamwreath (Court of Starts)
    Manceroy Flamefist (Battle of Dazar'alor)
  • Knight Captain Valyri (Tol Dagor)
  • Alandien (DH from Shadowmoon Valley)

The community assumed Mal'Ganis and Kin'tessa were those bosses all along, which doesn't seem to be the case, according to Senior Encounter Designer Kenneth Huang, who thinks "dreadlords were practicing their ability to mimic previously existing people" and "them taking on the forms of various creatures doesn't necessarily confirm they were those beings all along".

      You don't need to be Level 60 to start leveling in the Dragon Isles!
      The introductory quest "The Dragon Isles Await" is available even to Level 58 characters! If you decide to level up a Level 58 character, keep in mind you'll have to complete more side quests or dungeons to reach Level 70. The main campaign is currently gated behind player level and requires 66 in Azure Span, and the final two chapters in Thaldraszus require max level.

      More WotLK Classic hotfixes arrive, with battleground, class, quest fixes and more.
      October 4 (Source)
      Wrath of the Lich King Classic
      Honor gear vendor costs have been reduced by 30%. This includes Deadly, Hateful, and Savage gear. The breath meter has been increased to 3 minutes (was previously 1 minute). Death Knight’s Improved Unholy Presence now correctly reduces rune cooldowns when in Unholy Presence. Druid Lifebloom should now correctly scale with Haste when Gift of the Earthmother is talented. Flag carriers in the Warsong Gulch battleground now appear on the map after 45 seconds of carrying the enemy flag. The Wintergrasp auto-queue when entering the zone is now much quicker. Fixed an issue with “The Flesh Giant Champion” where Margrave Dhakar could become permanently stuck if other hostile creatures were pulled into the event area. Incomplete quests will now appear with a gray ‘?’ in gossip windows. Fixed an issue where Culling of Stratholme was not giving tank and healer Northern Adventuring Supplies upon completion. Fixed an issue where players would sometimes not receive Northern Adventuring Supplies if a pet performed the killing blow to the final boss in the dungeon. Friendly, neutral, and enemies tracked on the minimap are now distinguished by color.

      Blizzard have added clarifications and some corrections for the recently detailed class sets for the first tier of Dragonflight, with Evokers, Paladins and Shamans getting the corrections while Monks, Demon Hunters, Hunters, Mages, Warlocks and Shamans get more details for how their sets work.

      Thank you all for your feedback on and discussion around the new Class Set bonuses. It’s helpful to read your concerns as we continue to work on them, and we want to take a moment to share some clarifications and updates. The updates in this post aren’t everything we’re working on - we’ll share more as we make progress.
      We’d like to start with a note on tuning. Class tuning is ongoing, and some bonuses are farther along in the tuning process than others. That said, feedback on tuning is still valuable, especially around how bonuses affect your rotation or how often they’ll be active.
      Next, some corrections:
      The Preservation Evoker (2) Set Bonus will increase the critical heal chance of Reversion by 25%, not 5%. The Protection Paladin (4) Set Bonus was missing some values. It should read “Casting Hammer of the Righteous / Blessed Hammer increases your Parry by 4% for 10 seconds and extends the duration of Versatility of Light by 1.0 seconds.” The Elemental Shaman (2) Set Bonus should be 2.5%, not 2-3%. The Elemental Shaman (4) Set Bonus should include Elemental Blast. This has been corrected. In general set bonuses will affect talented abilities that replace other abilities. Here are some more details about how some bonuses work:
      The Enhancement Shaman (4) Set Bonus only affects abilities that are on cooldown. We’re aware that Fire Blast does not benefit from the Fire Mage (4) Set Bonus critical strike bonus - we formatted it that way for brevity. We may revise it to separate the bonuses. The Affliction Warlock (4) Set Piece grants 40% increased damage to one cast for each charge of Cruel Epiphany - the damage bonus does not stack. We’ll try to revise the description to make this clearer. The Vengeance Demon Hunter (4) Set Bonus activates at the same rate whether you are using Spirit Bomb or Soul Cleave. You will not have to talent into Spirit Bomb to maximize its value. The Mistweaver Monk (4) Set Bonus only extends the duration of Renewing Mist once for each Essence Font bolt - it does not trigger from Essence Font healing over time. There is currently a bug preventing Essence Font bolts from Faeline Stomp from activating the bonus, but we’ll fix that. One of the things we’re keeping an eye on is: bonuses that have too much influence on your talent choices or build. For instance, we’re changing the Frost Mage bonus to not empower Frost Bolt so specifically:
      (2) Set Bonus: Ice Lance and Frozen Orb damage increased by 10%. (4) Set Bonus: Consuming Fingers of Frost increases spell damage by 8% for 6 seconds. We’re looking forward to sharing more as we continue refining these bonuses. Thank you so much!
