Everything Coming in Patch 10.2.5

Recommended Posts

Sn-mka-obrazovky-2024-01-16-o-16-39-22.j

We're going over everything coming in the Seeds of Renewal update!

Content Overview

Patch 10.2.5 is a relatively minor update. It contains barely any class changes and some content hasn't been tested on the PTR, mainly the Dragonflight epilogue quests, Gilneas Reclamation, and Azerothian Archives group activities.

  • Class changes - A few classes have been updated. Patch 10.2.5 primarily focuses on updating animations of Shadowlands Covenant Abilities.
  • Worldwide Dragonriding - Dragonriding works wherever flying is available with some exceptions.
  • Azerothian Archives - A new public event that awards cosmetics.
  • Follower Dungeons - Queue up for Normal Difficulty dungeons solo with NPC teammates.
  • Outland Cup - 13 new courses and rewards await!
  • Hearthstone Anniversary Event - Starting March 11, Heartshtone's 10th Anniversary will be celebrated with a week-long event.

For more details check out the official patch notes.

Worldwide Dragonriding

  • Dragonriding will be available in every flying zone in Patch 10.2.5.
  • Unfortunately, there's the Riding Abroad Riding Abroad debuff for Dragonriding outside of the Dragon Isles which limits maximum Dragonriding speed to 85% of the maximum speed in the Dragon Isles. This means Dragonriding will be 15% slower at max speed in the open world.
  • You can't Dragonride old mounts, that's coming in the War Within pre-patch.
  • Earlier during 10.2.5 testing, Dragonriding was available at Level 30. However, this has changed now and Dragonriding and the talents unlock at Level 60.
  • Characters under Level 60 can still ride the Dragonriding mounts with regular flying.
  • Druid's Flight Form will support Dragonriding in the War Within pre-patch, not 10.2.5.

Dracthyr Soar Changes

  • The Soar Soar ability will work the same as Dragonriding. When you use Soar, you will be able to use  all Dragonriding abilities just like you can on a regular Dragonriding mount.
  • The Dracthyr will unlock Soar at the end of the starting zone (Forbidden Reach) experience.
  • The old version of Soar will no longer be available.
  • Soar's 10 second cooldown now starts the moment you take off instead of when you land.

Azerothian Archives

The event takes place in the Azure Span. You can see the exact location on the map below. There's also a countdown informing you about when the next event will start when you hover above the horn icon.

As opposed to other events, Azerothian Archives is not tied to player power / gear. The event only awards cosmetics. The whole event takes about 9 minutes and you need to wait about 5 minutes before another dig starts.

When the event begins, you will see a bar appear on your UI similar to the Superbloom bar. The goal is to interact with objectives to collect pages. Group acitivities have not been tested on the PTR! The rewards are random here. As you can see, you can receive a purple quality bag at the beginning upon collecting 1000 pages.

WoWScrnShot_122023_200057.jpg

The weekly quest can be obtained from Eadweard Dalyngrigge (I'm not even sure I've spelled that right), let's call him Edward. Upon completing the quest, you will receive 5,000 Mysterious Fragments, a currency used to buy cosmetics from the quartermaster and 3,000 reputation with the Azerothian Archives.

WoWScrnShot_122023_200114.jpg

You gain pages by excavating nearby objects and ore.

WoWScrnShot_122023_200204.jpg

There's a shadowflame dragon you need to kill which completes the quest, but the dragon should spawn at the end of the event not at the start, anyway, here's the loot you get from the dragon.

WoWScrnShot_122023_200443.jpg

WoWScrnShot_122023_200503.jpg

The epic bag also contains event currency and there is probably a chance to receive cosmetics as well, it's just not guaranteed.

WoWScrnShot_122023_201200.jpg

There are various ranks of reputation with the Azerothian Archives faction in 10.2.5.

Junior is the initial rank with Azerothian Archives. You will reach Capable at 10500 reputation, Learned at 21000, Resident at 32500 and Tenured at 42000.

The grind will probably be easy with Darkmoon Faire and other buffs.

If there are no nearby players, you will receive a solo buff that increases your Pages collected, similar to the Superblooms buff.

Follower Dungeons

Accessing Follower Dungeons is a breeze through the Group Finder. The new Follower Dungeon dropdown option lets you embark on any of the 8 Dragonflight Dungeons with NPC teammates, solo or in a group.

We noticed Dawn of the Infinite is not available as a Follower Dungeon.

Say goodbye to waiting times - these dungeons come equipped with NPC teammates! As you step into the dungeon, you'll be welcomed by friendly NPCs, and yes, there's even a Mage Table for thirsty healers!

WoWScrnShot_111723_164407.jpg

New players will surely appreciate Dungeon Assistance Dungeon Assistance which you can turn on if you would prefer the followers lead the way or turn off when you'd like to lead.

For newcomers,Dungeon Assistance Dungeon Assistance is a game-changer. Toggle it on for guidance from your NPC allies, or off if you're ready to lead the charge.

Follower Dungeons operate at Normal Difficulty, offering Item Level 421 Explorer 3/8 gear in Dragonflight Season 3.

Snímka obrazovky 2023-11-17 o 16.45.37.jpg

You can complete Dungeon Quests within Follower Dungeons. Keep in mind, the rewards are more suited for characters leveling up due to their lower item level.

Snímka obrazovky 2023-11-17 o 16.46.25.jpg

Expect impressive AI behavior. If you find yourself in a tight spot, the tank NPC will heroically taunt mobs off you, among other smart actions.

WoWScrnShot_111723_165421.jpg

Feel like switching specializations mid-run? No problem! Your group composition will adapt seamlessly to your new specialization.

The second mount is Fiery Hearthsteed Fiery Hearthsteed. You will most likely need to play some Hearthstone to get it as it's tied to a "Hearthstone Promotion" achievement called Hearthstoned: Fiery Edition Hearthstoned: Fiery Edition.

      During one raid, we got to see the Fyr'alath bad luck protection buff work wonders, yielding 12 drops from a single Fyrakk kill.
      Sacolas shared an interesting shot on Reddit, showing 12 Fyr'alaths dropping simultaneously! This might just be the record for the most Fyr'alath the Dreamrender drops we've seen from a single kill to date. Sadly, the original poster missed out on the quest item, and looted instead a Greater Ember of Fyr'alath. Here's hoping for better luck next week!

      What's the highest number of Fyr'alaths you've seen drop from one kill? Let us know in the comments below!

      The World Quest for Fathom Dweller is finally up on EU servers after almost a year. Check out how to summon Kosumoth the Hungering and get the mount before others do!
      Here's what the mount looks like.

      The quest won't pop up by itself. Instead, you must unlock it.
      First, download a WoW Addon that shows you coordinates to figure out where you are and where you need to be. Something like MapCoords or TomTom will do. Head to Broken Shore 37/71 and talk to Drak'thul. Head to 57/52 and enter the Musty Cave. Click on the Mound of Dirt that is hard to notice. You will receive Weathered Relic. Return to 37/71 and talk to Drak'thul again and go through all his dialog options. Now comes the more difficult part. You must click on 10 Hungering Orbs in the exact order. If another player clicks on them, it takes approximately 20 minutes for them to become clickable again, so they have a cooldown. Here are coords for all the Hungering Orbs: Azsuna: 37/37: The first orb is located in a secret cave behind the tree. Stormheim: 33/75: The second orb is located in a cave where Kangaxx is. Val'sharah 41/80 Find another secret cave located inside a tree. The third orb is guarded by an Elemental.  Broken Shore 31/76: You will find an underwater cave that hides the fourth orb. Azsuna 59/12: Behind the crystals is yet another secret cave. The fifth orb is located on the ground next to a broken table. Stormheim 67/14: Near the underwater shark is a crevice that leads to a cave that contains the sixth orb. Try to avoid the steams, as they deal high damage. This orb may be the most difficult for you to get. Highmountain 52/36: Enter the Haglands and follow the path to your right. Above halfway down (55/36), you want to jump down to a ledge with a cave. Do not enter the first cave since it's a decoy. Instead, turn right and head to the actual cave to find the seventh orb. Azsuna 54/26: Under the bushes near a tree is another secret cave. The eighth orb is somewhat hidden, too, located in a bush near a pillar inside the cave. Broken Isles World Map 50/91: Find underwater wreckage to get through a secret cave. This one is hard to explain, so we advise you to check out MadSeasonShow's video (timestamp). You will find the ninth orb to your right. Broken Shore 37/71: Head back to Drak'thul and click the final orb on the table behind him. After you click it, the DANGER: Kosumoth the Hungering World Quest spawns at 46/49 on the Broken Isles World Map. Kill Kosumoth to receive Fathom Dweller. Note that you have a chance to get the Hungering Claw instead of the mount. It just so happens that the reward is the mount right now. Check out the video guide by MadSeasonShow for more details!

      Blizzard have announced that they will be significantly changing the Oracle Priest Hero Talent tree, following player feedback and internal testing. It seems the tree's focus will no longer be on replacing Power Infusion.
      Oracle Hero Talents (Source)
      Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the Oracle Hero Talent tree.
      One of our goals in sharing these Hero Talent trees so early in the process was to give us adequate time to evaluate and change things as necessary. After reading your feedback, discussing the talent tree, and playtesting the concept internally, we’ve decided to revisit the Oracle tree, especially regarding its focus on replacing Power Infusion.
      Thanks again!
