Shadow Priests in Voidform Will No Longer Speak in Shath'YHar by Default

Recommended Posts

Shadow Priests in Voidform will no longer speak in the language of the Old Gods by default. The change is a huge improvement for those relying on /say and speech bubbles for communication in the game.

In an effort to improve communication between players who rely on speech bubbles, Shadow Priests will soon no longer speak Shath'Yar by default while in Voidform Voidform. Players who would still like to opt in and speak Shath'Yar will be able to do so through a glyph.

Deaf players often rely on /say to communicate in emergency situations in raids. In fact, for Undaunted’s raid team, it’s mandatory for all of our raiders to have speech bubbles enabled.

The problem is this: We have three Shadow Priests and they occasionally have to type something in /say, only to have it be Void gibberish that nobody can read.

This is a great callout. After discussing with the team, we’d like to look into changing this in a future patch. Our current thought is that priests in Voidform would no longer speak in Shath’Yar by default, but we’d also add a glyph so that players who like the flavor can still opt in to it.

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback!

Well, at least they aren't just outright removing it.

OK this is an example of the tail wagging the dog.

How about make a glyph to turn it off instead of making one to turn it on.

Accessibility should always come first, every gamer deserves a good experience.

 

With that said, I am admittedly laughing at the unfortunate circumstances where a critical moment in a raid occurs, and the critical information you hear is Oou thyzz lal ak'uq qwaz Zuq shkul ma sk'tek...

There's millions of players playing this game and 20 that have to deal with this on their (2? 3? shadow priests).

It makes no sense to remove this from everyone for this reason.

As long as the audio continues to have the spooky whispers I'm sure the hearing-abled aren't going to care so much

o wait

except the ones who want their mandatory face-melting shadowpriest to be able to say useful things to the raid.  We'll be happier too.

You're entitled to your opinion, but I respectfully disagree. The percentage affected shouldn't matter - helping them should.

 

As an example, many businesses have wheelchair ramps that impact their aesthetic, and the ramps are used by probably 0.3% of the population. But the wheelchair users still deserve the same access that those of us with working legs do.

 

This potential change allows those who need this utility to access it by default. Surely those of us that are able-bodied can take a minute to apply a glyph?

 

Just my two cents.

Was exiting to see a topping with shadow priest. Thougt maybe a little buff in pve to get a bit at the level of warlock/hunter. But we still do half of te damage overall in mythic dungeons(same for some other dps specs) its sad this season is so unballanced.....

This implies deaf people killing heroic jailer aren't able-bodied enough to apply a glyph on the 1 shadow priest they have. This whole thing is logically inconsistent.

We get it, you don't like being mildly inconvenienced for the sake of a small group of people who'd benefit. 🙄

No that's not it. This literally accomplishes nothing for no one.

This is basically a really elaborate "look I'm helping I'm helping aren't I a good person?" exercise.

That's all this is. That's the only thing that makes sense. There is nothing in anything that's been discussed or brought up that makes me think this is of actual benefit and that having it removed by default makes more sense than having the option to remove it.

      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'Shsarj (Source)
      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!
