MrGM Interview with Game Director Ion Hazzikostas About Patch 10.1

Recommended Posts


Content creator and streamer MrGM talked to Game Director Ion Hazzikostas about Patch 10.1 and here's a recap of the interview.

Interview VoD


  • The team's morale is good. 
  • Patch 10.1.5 will hit PTR realms soon.
  • Legacy reputation will eventually become account-wide, it's just not a priority right now.
  • There is no third spec for Evokers in 10.1, but anything is possible in the future. Datamining hints at discarded experiments that never made it live (when referring to spells).
  • Cross-faction limitations like not being able to queue for instanced content are results of old technology that needs to be updated. A lot of issues need to be fixed first, one at a time, because the game was never designed for cross-faction play. The general idea about cross-faction play is tearing down the barriers.
  • Being Battle.net Friends or members of the same community are requirements for inviting people into cross-faction guilds and they are in place to avoid confusion. Think of it as /invite and /ginvite.
  • They always try to pick the most popular raid for Timewalking.
  • Queue for Timewalking Raids isn't currently planned, because during that week, a raid would only be available on that difficulty and players wouldn't be able to complete transmog runs.
  • There are no plans to make more slots for the Dracthyr visible.
  • Bank is crusty, they spoke about updating it, but that would be a future expansion feature.
  • Burning Crusade Dungeon bosses had simple mechanics and they would need to update them from the ground up for them to be included in Mythic+.
  • A new megadungeon is coming in Patch 10.1.5 and we'll learn more about it soon.
  • Trader's Tender is the first truly account-wide currency and uses new tech, they might use it in the future when it makes sense.
  • Skips for old long raids is something they may implement in the future.
  • BfA bosses will be adjusted most likely in Patch 10.1.5 to become soloable.
  • Shadowlands LFR Solo Queue is possibly coming in Patch 10.1.5.

I love megadungeons. I hope it's some Blackrock Depths style abyss where we're just lost for 4 hours until we learn it inside and out in 6 months or so.

      Blizzard responded to the "no affixes bug" by temporarily disabling Mythic Dungeons on live servers.
      Mythic Dungeons are unavailable on live servers until the bug is resolved.

      The intro quest for the Revival Catalyst has been enabled on live servers this week.
      The quest should automatically appear in your Quest Log when you log in to the game. Alternatively, you can pick it from Therazal that offers the Aiding the Accord weekly quest.

      However, there are no charges available this week and you still cannot convert Season 1 gear for transmog.

      The Revival Catalyst will be enabled on live servers next week on June 13, allowing players to convert Season 2 eligible gear to Tier Sets.

      It appears someone forgot to set the keystone affixes for Mythic+ this week on live servers.
      Players on live servers discovered this week's keystones have no affixes attached to them. This is most likely a bug that will be fixed via hotfixes. Here's a screenshot of a +11 Neltharus keystone with no affixes.
