Blizzard just detailed a large amount of tuning (mostly nerfs) coming to the Sepulcher with next week's 9.2.5 patch, with 8 bosses getting adjustments!

As Patch 9.2.5 unlocks cross-server Mythic Sepulcher, and as we move into the later months of the tier, the team wants to continue to smooth out pain points for both progression and repeat kills on several bosses in the zone. Including this round of changes, we’ve made quite a few adjustments to Sepulcher in recent weeks, so we wanted to share a bit more context around our goals.

We’ve heard extensive feedback from players running Sepulcher on all difficulties that a number of mechanics in Sepulcher feel too unforgiving, and that there are just too many places where a single error by a single player can cause an unrecoverable wipe. We agree, and several of our recent changes have been aimed at reducing those penalties. This is a major topic of discussion within the team as we plan Dragonflight raid encounters and focus on delivering satisfying progression experiences for players on all raid difficulties.

Below are the changes that will be included in 9.2.5 next week during maintenance, and you’ll see them in the 9.2.5 patch notes:

      If you change your Loot Specialization, Zereth Mortis World and Daily Quests can offer different weapons as rewards.
      The game will offer you different rewards from World and Daily Quests on live servers when you switch your Loot Specialization. Here is a short video demonstration video:

      You can utilize Loot Specialization switching to collect transmogs or weapons for your off-spec.

      Note that this only works in Zereth Mortis and it takes approximately 10 seconds for the rewards to change.

      Update: it seems there's only half a mystery here, as I actually just didn't spot the Path of Frost icon, which led to the death. Apologies there. GY port is still a bug though!
      It seems someone's been pouring concrete around Stormwind's oceans, as JuliusLeNightmare faced off against some water and lost, only to be teleported to a very far away graveyard.
      Now while the teleport to the Tirisfal graveyard and the weird invasion of the zone near Stormwind is a well-known phenomenon/spatial anomaly, the transformation of the water into concrete is slightly weirder! Forsaken conspiracy/concrete pouring or weird bug? You decide!

      We've seen many WoW-related Minecraft builds over the years, and this is one of the better ones, as it takes the Alliance capital and transforms it extremely well. After 200 hours of work, @Yunatahel finally finished up and shared the project with the world, so let's take a look!
      Warning: potentially loud twitter video sound.
      Even the official WoW twitter account commented!

      You can also check out a different take on Stormwind (and Orgrimmar) here, and a recent Silvermoon rebuild here.

      After today's reveal of the Priest Dragonflight talent tree, Blizzard went into a little more detail for one particular Shadow talent, as it was a little unclear what it did. Here's the basic tooltip we got today, which will be updated.

      "Idol of Y'Shaarj: Shadowfiend causes you to gain a benefit based on your target's current emotional state."

      Idol of Y’Shaarj will receive a new tooltip as we get closer to Dragonflight. In the meantime though, here’s a breakdown of what it currently does:
      If your target is…
      Above 80% health? → Pride
      You and your Shadowfiend deal increased damage while Shadowfiend is active. Enraged? → Anger
      Purges the enraged effect and increases your Haste while Shadowfiend is active. Stunned? → Despair
      You generate Insanity while Shadowfiend is active. Feared? → Fear
      You and your Shadowfiend deal increased damage and do not break fear effects while Shadowfiend is active. No conditions met? → Violence
      Duration of Shadowfiend is increased. The priority order is:
      Anger/Despair/Fear → Pride → Violence
      As with everything in the talent tree, these effects are subject to change. I hope this clears up some confusion. We’ll continue monitoring the community’s feedback and we look forward to sharing more Dragonflight details in the future!
