Sword of Sargeras Statue + Big BlizzCon Crowds Wait to Get In

Recommended Posts

73559-blizzcon-2023-tickets-on-sale-july

The BlizzCon opening ceremony is only around an hour away, with the doors officially opening around now! The crowds have gathered in front of the convention center, but some are already inside and have peeked at what's there. 

The biggest (literally) thing those lucky enough to already be inside have noticed is a scaled down (thank god) replica of Sargeras' Sword with a very important note card:

Whether this is just a playful reference to the meme or if it could actually be connected to the 11.0 presentation remains to be seen, but we won't have to wait long to find out. And in case you're not familiar with the whole "What sword?" thing, you can found out about it here

Meanwhile, the regular BlizzCon attendees are ready to get in and have lined up in front! 

And here's what the stage and arena looks like before it gets filled:


The opening ceremony starts at 11 AM PDT / 7 PM CET!

      Unfortunately, players who pre-ordered the War Within Collector's Edition won't get guaranteed access to the Beta starting next week.
      Although the Epic Edition is part of the Collector's Edition, it doesn't come with guaranteed Beta access, as confirmed by Blizzard. Beta access was never mentioned for the physical version of the game.
      However, you will still get your Epic Edition key and 3-days of early access well ahead of the game's launch as physical boxes always arrive a few days/weeks before launch.

      Blizzard recently updated the Cloak of Infinite Potential in MoP Remix, capping all stats at 10 million.
      Despite its name suggesting "infinite potential," the cloak's stats have always had a cap.
      Initially, one player maxed out their cloak and couldn't exceed +200K Stamina because the stats were capped at 200,000.


      However, with a recent hotfix, all stats now cap at 10,000,000, so it will take a while before you reach the cloak's new maximum potential.

      Deleting jewelry to lower your item level is the new meta in MoP Remix due to Blizzard's latest scaling changese, which make bosses easier when your item level is low.
      Update: Blizzard has now released a hotfix and removed the 20% health increase for raid bosses, but you can still use this method to decrease raid boss difficulty.
      Last night, Blizzard adjusted raid scaling in MoP Remix, making Heroic/Mythic bosses scale with your item level. Here's what that means:
      As Reddit user Blubbpaule explains, there are now item level breakpoints for scaling. Bosses gain 20% more health and damage if you're above item level 406 on Heroic Difficulty.
      At item level 371 equipped and below (388 in each slot), bosses have 20% less health and deal 30% less damage. At item level 388 equipped (415.2 in each slot), bosses have the same health and deal the same damage as before the hotfix. At item level 406 (444 in each gear slot), bosses have 20% more health and deal 20% more damage. Players have found an easy workaround for the sudden increase in boss power: simply delete your jewelry (amulet, rings, and trinkets) to lower your item level, making raid bosses easier to defeat.
      When you delete all the listed items, your item level will decrease to around 370, which is just below the lowest threshold. Don't worry, you can buy all the items at any bazaar for 10 Bronze each.

      Blizzard have announced the launch date for the War Within Beta!
      Players with the Epic Edition gain immediate access and there will be plenty more selected to participate. Make sure you're opted in here. You can also check out all the upcoming Beta features below.
      Beta (Source)
      The World of Warcraft®: The War Within™ beta test begins 5 June! Over the course of the test, we’ll be inviting community veterans, press, fansites, friends, and family to check out the upcoming expansion and give us feedback. Players who purchase or who upgrade to the Epic Edition of The War Within will also gain immediate access to the beta and gain a minimum three-day early access to the expansion.
      Players selected to participate* will receive an email invitation directing them to download the game client directly from the Battle.net desktop app. Players who purchase the Epic Edition may also receive email notifications. As always, please be aware of phishing attempts—if you’re unsure whether your invitation is legitimate, please log in to your Battle.net account to verify that there is a The War Within beta license attached (under Your Game Accounts).
      Getting Started
      Join us in testing The War Within. Players who have opted in can be selected to be testers, and invitations will go out regularly throughout the test. If selected to participate in the beta test, your Battle.net account will already be flagged for access. Players who upgrade to the Epic Edition of The War Within will also gain immediate access to the beta.
      Make sure your graphics drivers are up to date. Run the Battle.net® desktop app—it may need to update itself if you haven't run it recently. If you don't have the app installed, get started here. Once Battle.net is installed and updated, select World of Warcraft from the list of games. In the Game Version drop-down menu above the Play button, choose The War Within (listed under In Development) option, then click Install. Allow installation to complete, click Play, and select any available Test Servers. Create a new test character or use the character copy to import your existing Dragonflight character. Enter the game and test the available content. If you have issues installing and operating The War Within Beta, please check our Common Technical Issues and Solutions to begin troubleshooting.
      What's Available in the Beta?
      New systems, the complete leveling experience, zones, dungeons, delves, Warbands, and the new playable Earthen are all available in the beta. Raid testing will come at a later time.
      The Zones of Khaz Algar- Designated Sector AR-934
      Beneath the surface of Azeroth, an expansive world exists, fraught with danger and waiting to be explored.
      The Isle of Dorn
      Discover the land of Khaz Algar, off the western shores of Pandaria and home to the Earthen. Their capital city, Dornogal, will become the new meeting ground for the Horde and Alliance.
      The Ringing Deep
      This gigantic cavern serves as the home of the Machine Speakers, Earthen who maintain the gigantic Titan machines of old.
      Hallowfall
      Lit by a massive crystal at its center, this bright underground zone is home to the Arathi who are engaged in a continuing battle against the nerubians.
      Azj-Kahet
      The pinnacle of nerubian society where Xal’atath, Harbinger of the Void, has been gathering and mutating nerubian forces to create an unstoppable army.
      For players who are concerned about entering into a space filled with spiders, there will be an arachnophobia filter that can be turned on which will convert spider creatures into crabs.
      Meet the Earthen
      We’ve met Titan-forged Earthen before in Ulduar and other places, but this society of Earthen has been isolated within Khaz Algar for a long while and have developed their own manners and customs. Visually, they are a bit larger, and gem encrusted.
      Earthen will also unlock as a playable race. Replenishing the culture’s dwindling numbers by either joining the Horde or the Alliance. Players will be able to choose either faction to begin their journey.
      There are many customizations that will be coming for these Earthen including different gem encrustations, beards for all body types, skin colorizations, and more.
      Dungeons
      Similar to the launch of previous expansions, there will be 4 level-up dungeons and 4 maximum-level dungeons that are available in each of the four new zones.
      Level-Up Dungeons
      The Rookery The Stonevault Priory of the Sacred Flame City of Threads Maximum Level
      Cinderbrew Meadery Darkflame Cleft The Dawnbreaker Old City If you don’t want to use the Dungeon Finder to take part in dungeons with other players, you can continue the campaign story with Follower Dungeons which will be available to play through in all level-up dungeons.
      Nerub’ar Palace Raid Dungeon
      The Nerub’ar Palace raid dungeon will offer eight boss encounters. Located in Azj-Kahet, it will result in the culmination of the story we see play out involving the machinations of the nerubian empire and Queen Ansurek’s collaboration with Xal’atath.
      Players can also expect new tier rewards for their valiant efforts.
      New Features
      Delves: Deep beneath the surface lies treasure vaults waiting to be discovered. Explore these world instances solo or with up to four friends, along with an NPC companion, to defeat bosses and gain epic end-game loot. Delves New Mechanical Mount Reward
