Dragonflight: Dark Heart 10.2.7 Update Development Notes


WOW REMIX: MISTS OF PANDARIA EVENT

World of Warcraft Remix is a time-limited event which allows players to re-experience the entirety of the Mists of Pandaria expansion at an accelerated rate from level 10 through 70. All loot has been completely overhauled and has powerful new effects allowing players to shape their experience, power up, and power on. Features include:

  • Accelerated Leveling and Content allowing you to take on nearly every quest, scenario, dungeon and raid.
  • Create a new WoW Remix character starting at level 10 to adventure through the event up to level 70.
  • A mountain of loot: Get powerful items from everywhere— quests, chests, creatures, bosses.
  • Customizable items allowing you to power up as far as you can go to take on tougher content.
  • Convert unwanted items into Bronze which can be used to upgrade items or purchase cosmetics.
  • Keep what you collect: Take your collection of transmogs with you into The War Within.

Read more about the event in our development article.

CHARACTERS

  • Added heritage armor for the Draenei and Troll races. The heritage armor questlines will not be available for testing on the PTR.
  • Added six new hair colors for Kul Tiran.

CLASSES

  • HUNTER
    • The hunter pet stable has been updated:
      • The pet preview window is now larger.
      • More information about the pet is displayed, including a list of abilities.
      • Pets can be favorited and added to a separate group at the top of the stable list.
      • The stable list is now searchable and sortable by name, specialization, abilities, and more.
      • Pets can now be renamed directly from the stable without certificate items.
      • Pets can now be released directly from the stable without needing to be summoned.
      • For the Beast Mastery specialization, the pet that is summoned by the Animal Companion talent now has a dedicated slot next to the Active pet list. The tooltip has been updated to reflect this change.

QUESTS

  • All Dragonflight quests that previously became available with Renown levels are now available to all max-level player-characters, regardless of Renown.
  • SINS OF THE SISTER
    • A night elf has arrived at Bel’ameth to bury the family she lost at Teldrassil. But when her deceased sister is revealed to be a traitor, will the night elves show her sister forgiveness or demand accountability for her sins? Level 70 players can speak with Malfurion Stormrage at the Terrace of the Moon in Bel’ameth to accept the quest “An Uncommon Request” and start this questline.

USER INTERFACE AND ACCESSIBILITY

  • Several changes have been made to improve the experience of finding Mythic+ groups in Premade Group Finder:
    • A filter button has been added that lets you filter results for:
      • Specific dungeons
      • Your role available
      • None of your class already in group
      • Tank and/or healer already in group
      • Minimum Mythic+ Rating of the leader
      • Difficulty
    • The role icons on each listing now show class colors, so you can see the current group makeup at a glance.
    • The listing tooltip now shows the leader’s info in a more readable format: their Mythic+ Rating, their highest key for the listed dungeon, and their highest key for all dungeons.
    • The listing tooltip now shows info for all members of the group, including their specialization and Mythic+ Rating (implementation pending).
    • The listing tooltip now shows the dungeon/raid name and difficulty.
    • A helptip tutorial has been added to teach players that they can search a key range for precise results (for example, 6-10 or 7-7).
    • Groups that no longer fit your filter criteria are marked with a red background (for example, if you selected “Damage role available” and a listed group filled up on damage dealers).
    • Groups you are hard declined from are automatically marked in red and sorted to the bottom.
    • In the leader applicants pane, the applicant tooltip now shows the applicant’s info in a more readable format: their Mythic+ Rating, their highest key for the listed dungeon, and their highest key for all dungeons.
  • Recipes can now be tracked from the Crafting Orders window.
  • An option has been added to the Auction House filters to show only current expansion items.
  • The location of Dragonriding Races can now be toggled in the Map filter.
  • You can now create or find a group participating in a Scenario by clicking the Group Finder icon on the Scenario objective.
  • The number of helptip tutorials that appear when logging in on a new character has been reduced.
  • Mount tooltips now show the category the mount belongs in: Ground, Aquatic, Flying, or Dragonriding.
  • TRADING POST
    • Mount categories (Ground, Aquatic, Flying, or Dragonriding) will now be shown in the Trading Post details panel.
    • Level requirements for using a mount will now be shown in the Trading Post details panel.

Good improvements. Still no region/server search 😞

I do wonder though if having the ability to filter for tank and healer groups means that there'll be fewer groups filling because people are just looking for easy group.

      Blizzard has added a completely new category to the Great Vault in the War Within. Find out more about the updated requirements!
      While we can't bring up the UI on the Alpha, based on datamining, we were able to figure out that the PvP row has been completely removed and replaced with a World row, as indicated by the new global strings for Build 54675.
      GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_INCOMPLETE - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a Great Vault reward. World activities count as Tier 0.|n|nThe item level of your reward will be based on your highest run this week.1 GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_COMPLETED_FIRST - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a second Great Vault reward. World activities count as Tier 0.1 GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_COMPLETED_SECOND - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a third Great Vault reward. World activities count as Tier 0.1 WEEKLY_REWARDS_THRESHOLD_WORLD - Complete %d |4Delve:Delves; or |4World Activity:World Activities; GREAT_VAULT_WORLD_TIER - Tier %s WEEKLY_REWARDS_ITEM_LEVEL_WORLD - Item Level %1$d - (Tier %2$d) WEEKLY_REWARDS_COMPLETE_WORLD - Complete a Tier %1$d delve or higher to increase this reward's item level. New World Category
      As you can see, you can complete delves or other world activities to unlock items in the new World row, which is cool for players who do not want to do Mythic+ or Raids.
      To unlock items in the new row, you must complete 3/6/12 delves or world activities. World activities count as Tier 0, as you can see in the global string.
      To increase the reward's item level, you must complete Delves at a higher tier. We have 9 tiers in total with the last two being only for bragging rights (awarding cosmetics).
      Great Vault Requirements in the War Within
      Here are the updated requirements for the weekly chest in the War Within.
      Raids
      Defeat 2/4/6 raid bosses to unlock slots 1-3. Dungeons
      Complete 1/4/8 Heroic, Mythic, or Timewalking dungeons to unlock slots 1-3. World
      Complete 3/6/12 Delves or world activities to unlock slots 1-3.

      Let's check out the unique and rare mounts available from the vendor in MoP Remix.
      MoP Remix introduces 29 new mounts for your collection. However, there are some additional very rare mounts from raids and world bosses with a drop chance of around 1%. The best part is that you can buy them from vendors once you have enough Bronze. Just keep in mind that these items have a minimum level requirement and are quite expensive.
      Reins of the Astral Cloud Serpent (1% drop from Elegon in Mogu'shan Vaults)

      Reins of the Cobalt Primordial Direhorn (1% drop from world boss Oondasta)

      Reins of the Slate Primordian Direhorn (Low chance to drop from the Zandalari Warbringer Rare Elite in Townlong Steppes)

      Reins of the Amber Primordial Direhorn (Zandalari Warbringer)

      Reins of the Jade Primordial Direhorn (Zandalari Warbringer)

      Spawn of Horridon (1% drop from Horridon in Throne of Thunder)

      Reins of the Heavenly Onyx Cloud Serpent (1% drop chance from Sha of Anger)

      Reins of the Thundering Cobalt Cloud Serpent (World Boss Nalak)

      Reins of the Thundering Onyx Cloud Serpent (World Boss Huolon)

      Reins of the Thundering Ruby Cloud Serpent (Alani)

      Son of Galleon (World Boss Galleon)

      Kor'kron Juggernaut (Mythic Garrosh)

      Clutch of Ji-Kun (Ji-Kun in Throne of Thunder)

      For more details, head to our MoP Remix rewards guide!

      The limited time Remix event just got a lot less deadly, as Blizzard fix another bug. Certain high level boss abilities were doing double damage, but a hotfix has cleared that all up! 
      Remix (Source)
      With a hotfix that we applied a few minutes ago, we’ve fixed a bug that was causing some high-level boss abilities to unintentionally do double damage to players.
      For players who have been inside an instance since before the hotfix went out, there will be no change until you leave and start a new instance.
      Thank you for your reports and feedback!

      Players without the Dragonflight expansion have been having trouble after reaching level 60in the MoP Remix event. Their characters would become locked, as levels 60 and up were part of the Dragonflight expansion, so there was quite a bit of confusion since the event wasn't supposed to require the latest expansion. 
      Luckily Blizzard have now clarified that this was a bug, and have since resolved it!

      We believe that this issue has been fixed with an update that we deployed with realm restarts earlier this morning.
