Blizzard is actively tying up loose ends as the release date of 6.0.2 draws closer. PvP Season 15 will be ending soon along with a probable 6.0.2 release date, Warlords of Draenor system requirements have been announced, and details about Season Two of Brawlers Guild have been released. Additionally, if you have ever deleted a character and regretted the decision later on, there's good news on the horizon!

PvP Season 15 Ending Soon and Probable 6.0.2 Release Date



Blizzard has announced that the PvP Season 15 will be ending soon. This is quite an important announcement as the last 8 PvP seasons have all ended the same day that a major patch has been released, and, that announcements of the end of PvP Seasons has been 2 weeks in advance. This places a 6.0.2 pre-patch release date as soon as October 14, 2014.

Blizzard Icon PvP Season 15 Ending Soon


After many grueling bouts in the Arenas and Battlegrounds, the time has nearly come to see who will reign supreme in this action-packed PvP season. Prepare to fight your last battles, and remember—to the victors go the spoils!

Arena and Rated Battleground Season 15 will be coming to an end in as soon as a couple of weeks. Once the season wraps, we'll begin an approximately two week process to determine end-of-season reward eligibility.

Qualified players should note the following in order to ensure you receive your just rewards:
  • Please refrain from transferring your characters to another realm or faction until after PvP Season 15 has ended.
  • PvP Season 15 titles and mounts will be awarded approximately two weeks after the season ends.
Conquest Points will be converted to Honor Points at the end of the season, and any Honor above 4,000 will be converted to in-game currency at a rate of 35 silver per point. A few other things to keep in mind once the season has ended:
  • The Honor cap will remain at 4,000.
  • Season 15 items with rating requirements will no longer be available for purchase.
  • Rated Battleground and Arena matches will not be available during the break between seasons.
Best of luck, gladiators! (Source)





Warlords of Draenor System Requirements Released



In the same vein as a probable 6.0.2 release date, Blizzard poster Nethaera revealed the Minimum and Recommended System Requirements for Warlords of Draenor on the official forums. Comparing these to the Windows Mists of Pandaria System Requirements shows minimum requirements have gone up slightly:
  • CPU:
    • Intel Pentium D -> Intel Core 2 Duo
    • AMD Athlon 64 X2 -> AMD Phenom X3 8750
  • Graphics cards:

Season Two of Brawler's Guild Details Announced



As we mentioned in a news post earlier this week, changes are coming to the Brawler's Guild in 6.0. In addition to current achievements becoming Feats of Strength, all progression with your faction's Brawler's Guild will be reset, the boss order will be rearranged and retuned for level 100, and useful items for everyone, like inv_60pvp_ring1c.jpgPit Fighter's Punching Ring, will be available.

Blizzard Icon Brawler's Guild: Season Two


You’ve been beaten and bloodied, laser beamed and chomped, and you’ve certainly earned the opportunity to take a breather. The current season of Brawler’s Guild is coming to a close once Patch 6.0.2 goes live, but you’ll be back in action before you know it. Here’s what you can look forward to as we get ready to launch Warlords of Draenor.
 

P1U5WLXYQQG11411767836654.jpg


First, all members of the Brawler’s Guild will keep their membership after the patch goes live, so don’t worry about having to rejoin. For those who still seek to join the Brawler’s Guild, you’ll have some opportunities to find a Blood-Soaked Invitation once you arrive on Draenor.

There are quite a few changes, so let’s break ’em down:
  • All Brawler’s Guild achievements earned prior to Patch 6.0.2—Season One—will become legacy achievements. New achievements for Season Two will take their place.
  • Rewards earned based on progression will remain available for purchase. The ring reward will be updated in Patch 6.0.2 so that it will have valuable stats for all specializations.
  • The next patch will introduce boss encounters that will be adjusted for level 100 members.
  • Progression has been reverted back to 8 tiers.
  • Bosses that are being removed from previous tiers will be added to the challenge card vendor and become available as you progress.
  • All tiers have had their boss line-ups remixed—for example, Bruce is now a rank 5 boss instead of rank 1.

While we won’t be adding new bosses or challenge cards, you will be able to take Meatball back to your Garrison as a new follower—that is, once you’ve defeated him. As for the future, who knows what developments Bizmo and Boss Bazzelflange might have planned? For now, get in there, rough up a few bad guys, and get ready for Brawler’s Guild to come back with a vengeance! (Source)





Undelete Characters Feature Coming in 6.0.2



Blizzard is introducing an automated system for restoring characters that have been deleted by players. You can only use this service once every 30 days, but that should be more than often enough for most players.

Blizzard Icon New Feature Incoming: Undelete Character


In the upcoming pre-Warlords of Draenor content patch, we’re adding a new feature that allows players to undelete characters. But before you delete that character, there are a few limitations we want you to let you to know about first.
  • Characters under level 10 and Death Knights at level 55 are not eligible to be undeleted.
  • Characters between level 10 and level 29 will no longer be recoverable after 90 days.
  • Characters between level 30 and 49 will no longer be recoverable after 120 days.
  • All other characters level 50 and above are eligible to be undeleted at any time.
  • Please keep in mind you will only be able to use the undelete option once every 30 days.
  • Undeleting a character restores all of its enchantments, gems, and items fully intact. You’ll be able to get back into action right away, and your character won’t remember being deleted—we won’t tell, either.
Shhhh. . . .

Reclaiming Your Name: What About Flugur?


We’ll be holding deleted character names for a limited time, and the original creator can reclaim it for use on a new character during that time. If you create a new character with the same name as one of your deleted characters (let’s say Flugur), the new character must be renamed, transferred, or deleted to complete the restoration of the original Flugur.

Good morning/afternoon/evening/night tongue.png

 

 

I have a question regarding the sistem requirements, cause unfortunently i dont have the means to upgrade my computer (a.k.a buy a new one) any time soon, and i want to play the game on my current one smile.png

 

 

Right now im running WoW on a 4 year old laptop, with a i3 processor M350 (2,27 GHz, a ati mobility radeon HD 5470 with 1 gb dedicated memory and 4 gb of ram memory. I can play just fine on low/fair settings, and all extra sutff to make the game look better all turned off and with an average 30 fps on open world and about 60 on closed spaces (dungs/caves, etc), when places get to crowded and there is a lot going on can drop to 15/20 fps but not that ctitical. Question is, will I be able to run WoD on this pc and have similar performance with these settings (even if i have to drop all settings to low, wich they almost are by now), or will i get horrible unplayable fps especially in a raid environment? And one more thing, for some time now i recieve a message everytime i open the game that says that my graphic card drivers are out of date, and says to update them. Problem is i checked for updates and says its updated and i looked onlyne everywere, including ATI website and cant find a way to update the drivers... Will this be a problem when WoD come and the outdated drivers will prevent me for even running the game (or at the very least cause any performance issues)? Any one knows how can the drivers be updated?

 

Thanks in advance for the answers, its a big concearn of mine cause i really want to to play WoD but cant afford a new pc any time soon

 

Cheers smile.png

You'll definitely be able to run WoD on at least minimum without any problems, FrostyMage. i3 CPUs are better than Core 2 CPUs pretty much across the board. You might need to turn a few things down slightly lower than you have them now, but I would imagine not by much.

As for the "out of date" graphics drivers, that won't prevent you from playing the game. Depending on if you're running 64 bit or 32 bit Windows, one of these two links should allow you to download the updated drivers for your system:

32bit: http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/mobile?os=Windows+7+-+32

64bit: http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/mobile?os=Windows+7+-+64

Hope this helps!

Im not a computer expert i but i know i have enough ram and cpu and all that even on my 5 y/o computer with my intel core i7 but when it comes to graphics im using an ati radeon hd 4600 series how does that compare to the 4850 series is it good enough? im running fine on fair right now with over 100 fps sitting and 50-90 in dngs and 25-50 in raids depending on the encounter

If you're achieving those FPS rates currently, you should be OK in everywhere except raids. For raids you may need to tone down your settings even more. There is a graphics option to reduce the number of spell effects from other players in 6.0, though, so that will have a lot of positive performance impacts.

Where is that graphics option ?

System -> Graphics. There's a checkbox that lets you specify different raid and battleground settings. Remember, this is in 6.0 so it won't show up until after maintenance tomorrow!

Everything under "Raid and Battleground" is what you see from other people (and in general) when you're in a raid or battle ground. By default, you won't see the giant graphics of other peoples' abilities, so your experience will improve some automatically. If you're still lagging, you can turn these settings down.

      The invulnerable bug will hopefully be eradicated after today's hotfixes, there's a lot of quest fixes and multiple artifact challenge appearances will no longer stack up on top of each other in class halls!
      April 25 (source)
      Class Halls
      Players who have unlocked multiple Challenge appearances for their Artifacts will no longer see more than one of them on top of each other in their Class Halls. Items
      Players should be able to transmogrify tabards to the appearance of the Legionfall Tabard. Butcher's Bone Apron should no longer provide a benefit that persists in unintended circumstances. Player versus Player
      Fixed a bug that was causing some players to become invulnerable in instanced PvP. The quest "Something Different" now requires 1 brawl victory (was 3 brawl completions). The quest now rewards a Soldier's Legacy Artifact Power token, 3 Marks of Honor, and a Brawler's Footlocker. Quests
      Corrine the Deceiver should now respawn as expected when killed on the quest “Cult Culling”. Fixed a bug that was causing errors opening Stolen Crates during “Arming the Army”. “Full Fel” now correctly awards quest credit. Resolved issues where some Paladins were not able to obtain the letter starting the Maximillian questline. A certain Escape Rope in a secret treasure cave is now easier to see. It’s dark in there! Previous hotfixes.

      A look at Patch 7.2's most crucial aspects for returning players and alt-friendliness - Artifact Knowledge, gearing and leveling.
      Artifact Knowledge
      Is the rate at which you gain Artifact Power. Your main goal should be to reach Artifact Knowledge Level 26 as soon as possible, because there's a significant increase in the multiplier in 7.2. If you lack Order Resources, keep in mind you can buy Order Resources Cache for Blood of Sargeras. Patch 7.2.5 added a bag with up to 4,000 Order Resources (Abundant Order Resources Cache), but we don't know what plans Blizzard has for it just yet.
      Artifact Knowledge Level 25 = 24,900% Artifact Knowledge Level 26 = 100,000% The % increase at AK Level 26 is huge, don't waste your time with World Quests or other AP content before you get it!
      Reaching Artifact Knowledge Level 1 - 25
      Knowledge is Power is a repeatable quest that can be turned in for 500 Order Resources up to Artifact Knowledge Level 25. If you have a main that has reached AK Level 25, you can buy Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IV for 1,000 Order Resources that can be sent to your alts to instantly reach AK Level 20. If you boost your AK Level with the research compendium to a certain level, the last 5 Artifact Knowledge Levels must be reached by repeating the Knowledge is Power (2,500 Order Resources) With AK Level cap being increased up to 50, you'll be able to buy additional compendiums At AK Level 30: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-V At AK Level 35: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-VI At AK Level 40: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-VII At AK Level 45: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-VIII At AK Level 50: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IX Example: Let's assume you've got AK Level 25 on your main and can purchase a compendium that will instantly teach your alt AK Level 25 Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IV.  Using it will make your alt have AK 20, but the last 5 levels have to be reached, by repeating Knowledge is Power five times. Artifact Knowledge Level 25+
      At this time, you will no longer be able to continue your research You need to start and finish Assault on Broken Shore to be able to research again After you finish the Assault, the accept the "Seeking Lost Knowledge" quest at Deliverance Point Once finished, return to your Order Hall and turn in Delivering Lost Knowledge You can now continue your Artifact Knowledge Research (Discovered Lost Knowledge) and don't forget to learn AK Level 26 by consuming Empowered Elven Tome in your inventory Gear
      Another interesting aspect for returning players and alts is gear. Patch 7.2 makes gearing up super fast.
      Crafted Gear & Obliterum
      The Obliterum Forge is now available to everyone and Obliterum has never been cheaper Crafted items have ilvl 835 Obliterum can upgrade items up to ilvl 875 Dauntless Items
      Discover an item appropriate for your specialization with ilvl 850+ Can be purchased from Warmage Kath'leen for 400 Nethershards each (e.g. Dauntless Hood) you shouldn't be really spending Nethershards on them, because they drop in Demon Assault Scenarios and from all Broken Shore content (bags, caches, mobs, the Sentinax) Demon Assaults
      Check the Broken Isles map periodically for Demon Assaults. Not only are they a great source of experience, you'll receive Dauntless tokens and epic quality gear from the last boss Dungeons
      Normal dungeons drop ilvl 825+ Heroic dungeons drop ilvl 845+ Timewalking drop ilvl 855+ Mythic dungeons drop ilvl 865+ Grandiose Armor Kits
      World Quest rewards (Farseer's Grandiose Armor Kit) that instantly upgrade items from your Order Hall Set to ilvl 870. Relinquished Items
      Discovers an item appropriate for your loot specialization with an ilvl 880+ Relinquished items (e.g. Relinquished Relic) can be purchased from Thaumaturge Vashreen for 5,000 Nethershards each The items have a chance to contain a Legendary item, so if you're a freshly-leveled 110 and would like to slot target your Legendary items, Relinquished items are your safest bet World Quests
      Broken Isles World Quest rewards now scale up to ilvl 865 World Bosses
      When Nether Disruptor's up, you'll have access to Broken Shore World Bosses that drop ilvl 900+ loot. Don't forget to bring a Seal of Broken Fate for bonus rolls. Leveling
      Mostly revolves around the Armies of Legionfall reputation grind, more information can be found in our guide.
      Focus your effort to unlock flying at least on one of your characters (Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part Two) Flying's account-wide and once unlocked, you can use it on any character (even at Level 100) Flying significantly speeds up leveling

      Patch 7.2 added several new Warlock Pet glyphs and we're looking at how to get them!
      Glyph of the Shadow Succubus
      There's a succubus standing near Tehd Shoemaker. She's called Syaith. If you're a scribe and /kiss her, you'll get Technique: Glyph of the Shadow Succubus. The trick is she only appears during the World Quest "Where There is a Whip...". You don't need to have Broken Shore World Quests unlocked to get it according to many reports from redditors that were able to find her.

      Credits go to redditor Sonotmethen
      Here are some tips from redditors!
      Comment from discussion Scribs can get Glyph of the Shadow Succubus for free today!. It seems you don't even need to be max level or have Inscription maxed out to get the pattern. Comment from discussion Scribs can get Glyph of the Shadow Succubus for free today!. Glyph of the Fel Succubus
      Technique: Glyph of the Fel Succubus seems to be a random drop from Cathedral of Eternal Night.
      The current version of the Fel Succubus is bugged (thanks to @Plaguestorm for pointing out), which results in a much weaker version of the regular Succubus pet in terms of damage output. It's advised not to use it until the issues get hotfixed.
      Comment from discussion Protip: Glyph of Shadow Succubus is obtainable right now..
      Glyph of Wrathguard
      Technique: Glyph of Wrathguard can be purchased from the Armies of Legionfall Quartermaster Warmage Kath'leen for 2,500 Nethershards.
