Death Heat Map for Hardcore Characters and Their Killers

Recommended Posts


Here's a really interesting visualization, as paraizord shared zone maps with highlighted locations of where Hardcore players had died and who killed them. This is based on data from the Deathlog addon, with 45,000 actual deaths logged in Classic. We also get to see what exactly killed them, as well as the level range of deaths by zone (you'd be surprised at the amount of sub-level 10 deaths).

There's plenty of locations showcased in the reddit post below, and the highest number of deaths is mostly related to how many players chose which starting zone, and oh boy, there were a LOT of Night Elves not making it out of Teldrassil, and most of those were under level 10.


Other VERY deadly mobs include Voidwalker Minions from Durotar, Son of Arugal in Silverpine, Wendigo in Dun Morogh, Defias Trapper in Westfall and the MOST deadly mob in this overview: Kobold Miners from Elwynn.


The later zones are much more interesting, however, as there are fewer deaths and the players getting there are presumably more dedicates, so let's take a look at the probably most classic Classic zone:


And here's the full list with the 14 zones that were examined:

      More SoD hotfixes arrive, with some class tweaks and a crafting recipe getting temporarily removed.

      For the retail hotfixes you can head on over here.

      Seal of Martyrdom will no longer grant mana to nearby allies who are not in the Paladin’s party or raid. Shamanistic Rage will no longer grant mana to nearby players who are not in the Shaman’s party or raid. It is no longer possible to have two copies of the Mangle debuff active on a target. Multiple Rogues can now have the Saber Slash bleed active on a target. If the Rogues have the Deadly Brew rune, they can each have a Deadly Poison periodic damage effect active on the target. Pattern: Phoenix Bindings temporarily removed from the merchant faction vendor while we work to resolve an issue with the recipe.

      Senior Game Producer Josh Greenfield has announced there will be some significant changes coming to the Ashenvale PvP event, as rushing the faction leader at the start of the event won't be a good idea, and there's plenty other modifications coming as well.

      Steelcurser discovered a secret rune vendor in Ratchet in Season of Discovery! Find out more about how to unlock Grizzby and the runes he sells!
      Enter the Ratchet Inn and turn to your right, you will see Grizzby. If you don't have enough gold, he will tell you you're too poor to talk to him. When you have enough gold on you, he will give you some RP dialogue, and then you will unlock 3 quests.
      For the first quest, you must deposit 24 Fish Oil. For the second quest, you must gather 20 Dark Iron Ordinances that drop from any Dark Iron Dwarves in the game. You can find Dark Iron Dwarves at the bottom of Arathi Highlands or at the top of Wetlands / Dun Morogh. Finally, you must bring him 6 Shredder Turbochargers that you can only farm from shredders after you've obtained a schematic in the Deadmines. Now that you've completed all steps, Grizzby will sell you the following runes for 5 gold each.
      Harmonious Epiphany Rune of Sacrifice Rune of Lone Wolf Rune of the Warbringer Rune of Main Gauche Rune of the Pact Rune of Survival Spell Notes: Rewind Time Rune of Dual Wield Specialization. The following post is based on Sarthe's video which you can watch here.

      We have some big SoD hotfixes today, with the Metamorphosis rune quest chain adjustment, a new Shaman rune discovery enabled, a lot of fixes and more!
      December 4 (Source)
      Players questing for “The Orb of Soran’ruk” will now find that The Twilight’s Hammer have invaded the shores of The Zoram Strand near Blackfathom Deeps. Developers’ notes: It wasn’t our original intent for discoveries to take you into raid instances. Now, the enemies needed for completion of a pre-requisite quest for a rune are both in the outdoor world and inside the raid. The quest to discover the Earth Shield shaman rune is now properly available to players. (Was previously not visible due to a bug). Happy hunting! Fixed an issue with the Bael Modan Blunderbuss gun item that caused it to only be usable with arrows rather than bullets. Fixed an issue where Sadistic Fiend would not properly reset when players died. Fixed an issue preventing progress on the Priest quest chain “Secrets of Elune”. Fixed an issue where “Allegiance to the Old Gods” quest was not completable while in a raid group. Carendin the Undercity Warlock will now discreetly dispose of any Acolyte’s Notes stuck in warlocks’ bags. He apologizes for the inconvenience. Your bags can now carry multiple filled Supply Shipment crates. Blackfathom Deeps Fixed an issue on Twilight Lord Kelris when players would incorrectly die if they took a Dream Portal while under the effects of the Dream Eater debuff.

      Update: and the changes are in already, as the details are listed in today's SoD hotfixes!
      We have more updates on the Warlock tanking rune in Season of Discovery! After responding to a reply on our tweet that the rune was found, Senior Game Producer Josh Greenfield aka Aggrend, one of the leads on SoD has now clarified that there are changes coming to the rune very soon! 
      Specifically, the raid requirement part will be removed either today or tomorrow, so more players can get their hands on it, especially those locked out for this reset already.
