Recommended Posts

Sn-mka-obrazovky-2024-01-09-o-23-02-38.j

Here comes Blizzard's official preview of Azerothian Archives available in Patch 10.2.5.

Blizzard Logo(Source)

Discover the history of the Dragon Isles and meet a unique cast of characters, hear stories of old, and witness the iconography of a time before. Participate in Solo and Group activities within Traitor's Rest with an hourly Public Event, plenty of opportunity to explore, and earn cosmetic rewards like Battle Pets, Mounts, and a Transmog set.

When Dragonflight: Seeds of Renewal arrives the week of January 16, players can head to the Roasted Ram Inn to collect the quest "To the Archives!" and begin their journey to Algeth'ar Academy in Thaldraszus where they will be directed to meet with Lead Archivist, Eadweard Dalyngrigge and his team of archaeologists and archivists at Traitor's Rest.

This is the site of the famed Battle of Traitor's Rest between Neltharion's troops and all the cultures of the Dragon Isles from eons ago! There's so much to be uncovered, discovered, and recovered here, and we're going to need all the Archivists on deck to make it happen.

Excavation

Visit Geo-Archaeologist Roska Rocktooth to receive an elemental assistant specific to each site to help you discover Finds to excavate. Once a Find is located, plant a shaman totem and instruct your elemental pal to carefully excavate the spot to reveal a myriad of interesting Finds, from relics to enemies to take down.

Locating small and large Finds alike will trigger a minigame to challenge burgeoning Archivists—players must keep the element bar balanced using their elemental assistant to dig the relic up.

Technoscrying

Every site contains items that must be sought to reveal scenes from the distant past. Report to Techno-Archaeologist Zenata to receive a set of goggles called Technoscryers that help you locate specific items with directional pings and alerts leading you to their location.

Once an item is located, Zenata calibrates your goggles, and upon doing so, you'll witness a scene from the past that will give context to the items or provide a small story.

 

Research

The more you know! Codicological Archeologist Nirobin uses his own mix of blue and bronze magic, along with a Relic, to create arcane familiars to assist in collecting related information from the site that the Relic is from.

Each site has its own type of adorable familiar that spawns copies of itself. Those copies seek out sources of related information. Players can accompany the original familiar and absorb the information once found. Weekly Quest completion helps to fill out Nirobin's tome with more and more details on each site's story.

 

Rewards

Small sites are available for those who like solo adventures, and those who wish to group up with their mates can join in group activities at large sites that last ten minutes with multi-stage scenarios. Players can participate in various activities, including excavating and fending off enemies. Once the event timer runs out, players will have to defend themselves against Doomshadow after the event to gain more pages to fill out their tomes.

Along with green, blue, or purple tomes that offer items and reputation once opened, players can gain the following rewards from Provisioner Aristra at Algeth'ar Academy:


Start digging when Seeds of Renewal comes to Dragonflight. See you in Azeroth!

Looks like this could have been a replacement for archaeology? At this point it seems forgotten and redundant, so it would have been good if something fun replaced it.

      We have more legendary axes incoming very soon! Blizzard have announced that they are significantly buffing the effects of all Embers of Fyr’alath starting today, and applying retroactively to any you've already gathered. 
      Fyr'alath (Source)
      Many aspects of Dragonflight have reflected a shift in philosophy towards designs that allow us to enjoy reaching a point where we feel “done” with a character’s power progression. Legendaries returned as an exception to this. Legendaries are intended to be a special reward that some players would aspire to obtain over the course of a season, demonstrating a display of excellence in the most challenging content.
      As Season 3 has unfolded, we’ve increasingly heard feedback from frustrated players who have been clearing Amirdrassil weekly on Heroic difficulty with no Fyr’alath in sight, and we want to give those players a surer path to achieving their goal.
      Earlier today, with a hotfix that is now live, we significantly increased the effect of all Embers of Fyr’alath for players who receive them. This increase is retroactive and applies to all players whether or not you’ve consumed any Embers you may have.
      As always, thank you for your feedback!

      We have another very useful video guide from the man with the unreasonably deep voice, as Danta takes us through the Glory of the Legion Hero and how to do it solo! Blizzard relatively recently changed the achievement to be soloable, but it will still take more than a reset as certain bosses are not always available.
      Aside from the achievement itself, you get a nice Nightborne/Suramar themed hippogryph, the Reins of the Leyfeather Hippogryph.

      And now on to the video!

      Update: it seems the boss rotation is different for EU and NA servers, as Danta mentions in one of the youtube comments:

      Who would've thought we'd see a rise in Mythic+ runs for the second consecutive week this late in the season?
      In the twelfth week of Season 3, players knocked out 1,222,291 Mythic runs. Just when we assumed the numbers would start to dip, the following two weeks threw us a curveball! Week 13 brought in 1,228,021 runs, and by Week 14, we hit a whopping 1,316,404 Mythic+ runs!

      (Courtesy of MythicPlusPoster)
      Here's a breakdown of the weekly run totals for each Dragonflight season to date. The data is based on raider.io and some of the weeks from Dragonflight seasons 1 and 2 are not available.
        Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Week 6 Week 7 Week 8 Week 9 Week 10 Week 11 Week 12 Week 13 Week 14 Season 1 3,212,947 runs 2,396,688 runs 2,078,093 runs 2,078,093 runs 1,908,140 runs 1,701,148 runs 1,905,452 runs ??? runs ??? runs ??? runs ??? runs ??? runs ??? runs ??? runs Season 2 2,270,276 runs 2,151,658 runs 1,560,065 runs 1,102,022 runs 1,000,240 runs 939,428 runs ??? runs ??? runs ??? runs ??? runs ??? runs ??? runs ??? runs ??? runs Season 3 2,948,564 runs 2,646,932 runs 2,367,515 runs 2,399,395 runs 2,159,733 runs 1,754,800 runs 2,033,517 runs 2,114,958 runs 1,703,330 runs 1,447,958 runs 1,395,706 runs 1,222,291 runs 1,228,021 runs 1,316,404 runs Source: Reddit
