Recommended Posts

Executive Producer Holly Longdale teased some upcoming experimental PvE-focused content that Blizzard will soon reveal to the community.

It appears that Plunderstorm isn't the only new mode Blizzard plans to add to WoW this year.

Holly Longdale today teased an upcoming PvE-oriented event that will soon be revealed to us. Holly might be talking about the "Timerunning Pandamonium," expected in Patch 10.2.7.

Greetings Citizens of Azeroth,

It’s been great seeing so many players taking the plunge into Plunderstorm and we’ve loved seeing all of the stories and feedback as this experimental event evolves. It will be exciting to see some of the community content creators going head-to-head as duos during the Plunderstorm Creator Royale on March 30!  This isn’t the end of the things we want to try in World of Warcraft, however, and we have more in store we can’t wait to show you.

Dragonflight Season 4 is in route as testing begins on the PTR and we’ll have more news to share soon™ on the next experiment we have up our sleeves. We hope those of you who are looking for PvE focused content will enjoy what we’re planning, all while we continue to press forward on development of our next expansion for World of Warcraft— The War Within.

We can’t wait to share with you all the many things the team has been hard at work on.

With gratitude and excitement for what we’ll do together next,

Holly Longdale

I am in full fear of this being more FOMO, and stress.
Too many people are beginning to excuse FOMO and put value in that, when its just driving people like me away.

Plunderstorm had reused BfA assets, so in this new minigame we are going back to Pandaria? I guess the map used for it will be new, but they might use some MoP assets for it.

Using old assets are common practice even in AAA games. Take for example, Resident Evil 7 they decided to use photogrametry to scan assets in to save a ton of time with really good quality. Resident Evil Villiage actually used Quixel Megascans along with their own assets. FFXIV has a bunch of enemy models that were clearly lifted directly from earlier games, like FFXII.

Point is creating adding this free funny small games and events like Plunderstorm is cool and save players from being bored specially this late into expansion and it helps to attract new players to the game.

I don't get it honestly. Do you want all rewards for free? Yes? well you can't have them. Nothing is free in life and you can't have rewards from Plunderstorm for free. Sorry

No? you think it is FOMO because it takes lots of time and you may not to be able to get all rewards in time.

Well all you need to do is playing for 10 minutes per day! 3-4 minutes per game.

If you get 1 renown per day you will be reach renown 40 before events end. It takes literally 10 minutes. I'm at renown 31 right now and i play Plunderstorm for 30 minutes each day. Just log in queue for event and start plundering gold and killing creatures. After recent buffs to plunder gain it is super easy to get 1k plunder. There are loads of guides on youtube,reddit,whead and icyveins to how to do it.

If you have time and play more like 1 hour or more you will reach renown 40 in way sooner then events end.

Plunderstorm seems like it was being worked on a while ago, reused BfA assets and Dracthyr aren't even available there. Perhaps it was originally intended to be released much earlier. These are test modes, they are trying what they could implement from them later on. After all, Plunderstorm won't be there in a month or so.

As for attracting new players, I think there are barely any new players. I doubt a lot of people would sign up for subscription just to try some small game mode with one map. Maybe if they made this f2p. Most people playing it are existing players who just want a cool pirate transmog.

Well it (Plunderstorm) is making a lot of news , publicity and hype. Those are tools for attracting new customers in any industry and market. Thats how entire marketing thing works.

No on both.
FOMO = Things disappear /  get removed.
It's digital scarcity, it's idiotic.

      Dragonflight Season 4 is upon us and here's a handy visual gearing guide by Reddit user gandalin1306 to help you get started!
      If you're curious about the upgrade tracks for season 4 and the crests required for upgrades, look no further. Here’s a detailed visual guide created by Reddit user gandalin1306.
      Update: gandalin1306 updated the gearing guide, adding Whelpling Crest drops to Heroic dungeons. The image below has been updated.

      We've already talked about and taken a first look at the Delve-specific mount coming in the War Within, but now it's time to check out all of its customization options! 
      LeystTV has delved into the mount and shown off all the options, from the different colors to nose, wing, thruster, and top customizations, with glider, blimp, helicopter looks and more! There's even different versions of Horde and Alliance decals to choose from! 

      And these may not even be all the options present at launch, not to mention new ones Blizzard might add with later patches, making this one of the cooler mounts in the game.

      We have a Crest switch fix and weekly maximum increase, as well as a quest fix in retail, the big class tuning pass for Season of Discovery, and more in today's hotfixes.
      April 23 (Source)
      Items
      Season 3 (Dreaming) crests are now correctly removed from players' currency tabs. Players have received a small amount of gold for their unused Dreaming Crests. Players can now earn up to 120 crests of each type per week in Dragonflight Season 4 (was a maximum of 90 per week in Season 3). This will allow for up to 8 upgrades per week, per crest type (was 6 in Season 3). Developers' notes: For players who don't reach their maximum crest earnings in a given week, we've implemented the increasing-seasonal-cap system from previous seasons. Please note that this increase is likely applicable to Season 4 only. We expect the weekly maximum to return to 90 for The War Within Season One. Quests
      Resolved an issue where abandoning the quest "Something Worth Celebrating" could make it unavailable. Cataclysm Classic
      The dates for Children’s Week have been adjusted so that the holiday begins and ends three days later than previously scheduled. Season of Discovery
      Players who have completed the quest "Warranty Claim" but have misplaced their Pristine G-7 C.O.R.E. Processor before handing in the quest "Salvaging the Salvagematic" may now speak with the Lost and Found vendor Rix Xizzix in Booty Bay to recover the misplaced quest item. Fixed a Sunken Temple issue where the Atal'ai Defenders encounter would not reset properly. Druid The Natural Weapons talents now increases all damage done by druids in Season of Discovery, instead of just physical damage. The Gale Winds rune now reduces the mana cost of Hurricane by 60%. Swiftmend no longer consumes a Rejuvenation or Regrowth effect on the target when used. Developers’ notes: Please note that it does still require Rejuvenation or Regrowth to be on the target to be used. Hunter Rapid Killing now reduces the cooldown of Rapid Fire by 80% (was a reduction of 2 minutes). Chimera Shot weapon damage percent increased to 135% (was 120%). Explosive Shot base damage before attack power increased by 50%. Sniper Training has an additional new effect: while Sniper Training is at 5 stacks, Aimed Shot is instant. Serpent Spread now causes Multi-shot to apply Serpent Sting to its targets for 12 seconds (was 6 seconds). Steady Shot now deals 100% weapon damage (was 75%). Developers’ notes: There are more adjustments coming for Hunters. In general, we intend to improve the ranged playstyle and diminish the melee playstyle so that the two become more equivalent. Paladin Seal of Righteousness damage can now be critical hits. Sacred Shield’s duration is extended to 60 seconds (was 30 seconds). Crusader Strike has now gained an additional effect: Crusader strike now refreshes all judgement effects active on the target to a 30 second remaining duration. Seal of Martyrdom can now “twist” with other seals, including Seal of Command. Developers’ notes: Seal twisting was an interesting emergent effect that became popular during the original Burning Crusade, that utilized the slower server messaging system used in early versions of WoW to slightly extend the duration of the paladin’s active seal for a short time whenever a second seal was cast. This effectively allowed paladins to momentarily gain the benefit of two seals at once if they timed the application of a new seal to line up perfectly just before their weapon swing. We recreated this playstyle in Burning Crusade Classic and since then it’s been a popular request in other versions of original WoW, including Season of Discovery. As the game matures and we continue to listen to player feedback however, we recognize that for some, this is part of the charm and uniqueness of playing a paladin during those early eras of WoW’s history. We consider this change to be experimental and we will watch the performance and behavior of Retribution closely after this change. Priest Shadowform now increases all shadow damage done by 25% (was 15%). Rogue Saber Slash bleed now stacks up to 5 times. Saber Slash bleed now also increases the impact damage done by Sinister Strike and Saber Slash by 15% per stack for the rogue who applied the bleed. Saber Slash bleed now deals 3% of the rogue’s Attack Power in damage per tick (was 5%). Shaman Mental Dexterity now only triggers from dealing damage with Stormstrike and Lava Lash, and it now lasts 30 seconds (was 10 seconds). Burn now increases Flame Shock Damage by 100% and flame shock DoT duration by 6 seconds, and causes Flame Shock to strike up to 5 targets (was 3 targets). Developers’ notes: We’ve received a lot of feedback about the overall usability of mental dexterity, particularly for Elemental Shamans. This ability was not intended to be used by elemental, so the adjustments we’ve made are to help ensure its usage is a bit more enhancement-centric. To compensate, we’ve increased the output and usability of the Burn rune, with a slight quality-of-life improvement in the form of a Flame Shock duration increase which allows two Lava Burst casts to be used within a single Flame Shock duration.
