CHARACTER LEVEL

Developers’ note: With each phase, we encourage players to make a new template character and avoid using their previous characters as they could potentially be in a broken state. After making a new template character, make sure to talk to Questzertauren and he will prepare you for any available content.

  • Level 73 Character Template
  • Maximum Level: 75

CLASSES

  • The following Hero Talents are available for playtesting in Public Alpha 2:
    • DEMON HUNTER
      • Fel-Scarred
        • Fel-Scarred Demon Hunters embrace the monster within! Blasts of devastating Fel fire are unleashed while in demon form, and activating Metamorphosis greatly empowers additional Fel-themed abilities. The Fel-Scarred endure a pain that bubbles just beneath the surface, granting increased maximum Fury and a portion of their demon form bonuses at all times. Those who stand in their way will inevitably be introduced to that pain by intense fiery abilities and blades that burn with Fel energy.
    • MONK
      • Mastery of Harmony
        • Developers’ notes: Master of Harmony was accessible in the Public Alpha 1 build but several talents were still being worked on. In Public Alpha 2, Master of Harmony is now fully playtestable.
  • All Fear, Silence, Sleep, Stun & Interrupt visual effects have been updated with a new visual. Additionally, all movement speed slowing effects greater than 50% will now display a universal Slow visual on the target.
    • Developers’ notes: Our main priority for this visual update is to help increase the clarity and consistency of messaging for common status effects. Slow (the status effect not the spell), for example has taken quite a few different visual forms over the years, mostly in the range of multicolored dust clouds around a target’s feet. As you can imagine this particular visual was difficult to notice from a distance and wasn’t easily recognizable. So, we did a pass on Slow and the other status effects listed to help address those clarity/messaging issues making them easier to quickly identify in combat.
  • MAGE
    • Sunfury
      • Spells cast by the Arcane Phoenix no longer benefit from the caster’s secondary stats, spell damage bonuses, or talents.
      • Arcane Phoenix’s Arcane Surge damage reduced by 50%.
      • Reduced the damage of all Arcane Phoenix AOE spells by 50%.
        • Arcane Barrage, Flamestrike, and Phoenix Flames

    • Fire
      • Fuel the Fire is now baseline
      • New Talent - Lit Fuse: Consuming Hot Streak has a small chance to grant Lit Fuse. Lit Fuse makes your next Phoenix Flames apply Living Bomb to up to three targets. Living Bomb explodes after 2 sec, dealing damage to the target and up to 5 nearby enemies. Up to 5 enemies hit by this explosion gain Living Bomb, but this effect cannot spread further.
      • New Talent - Explosive Ingenuity: Consuming Hot Streak has a higher chance of granting you Lit Fuse. Living Bomb damage increased by 50%.
      • New Talent - Down in Flames (Choice node with Improved Scorch): Scorch deals 300% damage to targets below 30% health.
      • New Talent - Quickflame (Choice node with Flame Patch): Flamestrike damage increased by 25%.
      • New Talent - Focused Fury: Living Bomb deals more damage the fewer targets it hits, up to 300% at 1 target.
      • New Talent - Mark of the Fire Lord: Flamestrike and Living Bomb apply Mastery: Ignite at 100% increased effectiveness.
      • New Talent - Spontaneous Combustion (Choice node with Improved Combustion): Casting Combustion refreshes up to 3 charges of Fire Blast and up to 3 charges of Phoenix Flames.
      • New Talent - Charring Embers: Phoenix Flames applies Charring Embers to all enemies it damages, increasing their damage taken from you by 5% for 12 sec.
      • New Talent - Fire’s Ire: When you’re not under the effect of Combustion, your critical strike chance is increased by 2.5%. When you’re under the effects of Combustion, your critical strike damage is increased by 2.5%. Two-rank talent.
      • New Talent - Explosivo: Casting Combustion grants Lit Fuse. While under the effects of Combustion, consuming Hot Streak has a substantially increased chance to grant you Lit Fuse.
      • New Talent - Blast Zone: Lit Fuse can now apply Living Bomb to up to five targets. Living Bombs can now spread to eight enemies.
      • New Talent - Ashen Feather (Choice node with Majesty of the Phoenix): If Phoenix Flames hits only one target, it deals 50% increased damage and applies Ignite at 100% effectiveness.
      • New Talent - Majesty of the Phoenix (Choice node with Ashen Feather): When Phoenix Flames damages 3 or more targets, your next 2 Flamestrikes have their cast time reduced by 1.5 sec and their damage is increased by 20%.
      • Fervent Flickering has been redesigned: Now reduces the cooldown of Fire Blast by 2 sec
      • Controlled Destruction has been redesigned: Damaging a target with Pyroblast increases the damage it receives from Ignite by 2%. This effect stacks up to 25 times.
        • Developers’ notes: This talent is currently stacking past 25. This is not intentional and will be corrected in a future update.
      • Improved Scorch has been redesigned: Casting Scorch on targets below 30% health increases the damage the target takes from you by 5% for 12 sec. This effect stacks up to 2 times.
      • Flame Accelerant has been redesigned: Every 12 seconds, your next Fireball, Flamestrike, or Pyroblast has a 40% reduced cast time.
      • Unleashed Inferno has been redesigned: While Combustion is active your Fireball, Pyroblast, Fire Blast, Scorch, and Phoenix Flames deal 50% increased damage and reduce the cooldown of Combustion by 1.25 sec. While Combustion is active, Flamestrike deals 25% increased damage and reduces the cooldown of Combustion by 0.25 sec for each critical strike, up to 1.25 sec.
      • Convection has been redesigned: When a Living Bomb expires, if it did not spread to another target, it refreshes its duration. A Living Bomb can only benefit from this effect once.
      • Pyromaniac has been redesigned: Casting Pyroblast or Flamestrike while Hot Streak is active has an 8% chance to repeat the spell cast at 100% effectiveness, but the copied spell cannot contribute to Hot Streak. This effect counts as consuming Hot Streak.
      • Phoenix Reborn has been redesigned: When your direct damage spells hit an enemy affected by Charring Embers 20 times, the damage of your next 2 Phoenix Flames is increased by 200% and they refund a charge on use.

      • Firestarter, Intensifying Flame, Inflame, Controlled Destruction, Wild Fire, and Flame Accelerant are now in Gate 2.

    • Developers’ notes: Please note that not all of the below changes will be available in Public Alpha 2, but we want to give players a full picture our next planned update for Windwalker, so we’ve opted to include all of our changes.
    • Conduit of the Celestials
      • Heart of the Jade Serpent now increases the cool down rate of affected spells by 75% (was 100%).
      • Fists of Fury now channels 50% faster during Heart of the Jade Serpent.
    • Windwalking is now a 1 point talent.
    • Some connections have been moved within the final gate.
    • Hasty Provocation has moved to a choice node with Quick Footed.
  • Windwalker
    • Expel Harm no longer triggers combo strikes.
    • Chi Wave no longer triggers combo strikes.
    • Combat Wisdom now balances your Chi to 2 while out of combat.
      • Developers’ notes: With the removal of Expel Harm from the list of combo strikes triggers, we’d like to naturally smooth out Windwalker’s opener by having them start each combat with some additional Chi. This also reduces the ramp-up steps for them to get going rotationally.
    • Storm, Earth, and Fire now triggers Combo Strikes.
      • Developers’ notes: Moving forward, we’d like for Combo Strikes to not trigger from spells that aren’t intuitive to mix into your rotation or aren’t directly under your control, such as Flying Serpent Kick and Chi Wave / Expel Harm procs. Along this line of thinking, we’re also adding Storm, Earth and Fire to the list of spells that can trigger Combo Strikes. We want the initiation of cooldowns to feel as smooth as possible, and we’d like to allow for Ordered Elements to feel easier to play around (also back to back Rising Sun Kicks are fun!).
    • Ordered Elements now has a 7 sec duration (was 5).
    • Jadefire Harmony now increases damage and healing taken by 8% for its duration (was 12%).
    • Crane Vortex is now a 1 point talent and increases the radius of Spinning Crane Kick by 15%.
    • Rising Star is now a 1 point talent.
    • Vivify healing increased by 30% for Windwalker.
      • Developers’ notes: With the removal of Expel Harm as an active button for Windwalker, we’d like Vivify to better fill the on-demand healing niche for them.
    • Skytouch no longer increases the range of Tiger Palm, now increases critical strike chance by 15% (was 50%), and its lockout duration is 30 sec (was 60).
    • Dance of Chi-Ji may now stack up to 2 times.
    • Storm, Earth, and Fire clones will now copy your Tiger’s Lust casts.
      • Developers’ notes: With the removal of Serenity in mind, we’re looking to open up counter play options for Windwalkers when their Storm, Earth, and Fire clones are crowd controlled in PvP.
    • Flying Serpent Kick is now a 30 sec cooldown (was 20).
    • Shadowboxing Tread’s extra Blackout Kicks are now 80% effective (was 100%).
    • Developers’ notes: We’re adding a tuning knob to Shadowboxing Treads so we can more easily tune Blackout Kick’s damage between single target and AoE scenarios.
  • PALADIN
    • Retribution
      • Highlord’s Judgment has been renamed to Highlord’s Wrath.
      • Mastery: Hand of Light has been renamed to Mastery: Highlord’s Judgment – Now also causes Judgment to have a chance to blast the target with the Light, dealing Holy damage.

      • Execution Sentence now causes the enemy to suffer 20% of the damage dealt during its time after it expires (was 30%).
      • Execution Sentence damage no longer counts as a damage over time effect.
      • Highlord’s Judgment damage increased by 50%.
      • Highlord’s Wrath is now a 1 rank talent. (was 2 ranks)
      • Highlords Wrath: Mastery: Highlord’s Judgment is 50% more effective on Judgment and Hammer of Wrath. Judgment applies an additional stack of Greater Judgment if it is known.
      • Vanguard of Justice is now a 2 rank talent (was 1 rank)

      We're exploring spec diversity for each key level in Dragonflight Season 4!
      Reddit user RaptorAnka pulled some interesting data from EU/US WoW Game Data APIs and created a visualization showing spec diversity in the ongoing season and how it changes with each key level.
      The color intensity (high red for low diversity, low green for high diversity) indicates that certain specs are highly favored, leading to less diversity within those roles.

      DPS Specs
      Augmentation Evoker is very dominant, especially at higher key levels, consistently appearing in the top spot. Shadow Priest has strong presence across all key levels, often appearing right after Augmentation Evoker. Fire Mage shows up frequently, mostly at higher key levels. Frost Mage also appears regularly, but not as much as Fire Mage. Tank Specs
      Vengeance Demon Hunter is the top tank, maintaining near 100% representation. Blood Death Knight appears more frequently at mid-to-lower key levels as the Vengeande DH representation decreases slightly. We see some Guardian Druid presence at mid-levels. Healer Specs
      Restoration Druid is very dominant, especially at higher key levels. Mistweaver Monk gains representation at mid-to-lower keys. Holy Paladin appears more frequently in the mid-to-low key levels. Source: Reddit

      Horde Timerunners can purchase shirts in Silvermoon City during the Landfall Campaign in MoP Remix.
      During the Landfall Campaign in MoP Remix, Horde Timerunners will find themselves in Silvermoon City with the opportunity to buy special BoE Horde shirts from Andra.

      The exact location of the vendor is marked by the player arrow in the included screenshot by Nidocide.

      If you're curious, attempting to leave the city will teleport your character to Jade Forest, as confirmed by the original poster (OP).
      A player asked the OP if it's possible to mail these shirts cross-faction to another Timerunner. Unfortunately, the OP couldn't test this as they had progressed too far in the quest chain, making a return to Silvermoon City impossible.

      Update: the farm has been nerfed a little! Lesser Charms no longer drop, making it less lucrative.

      It didn't take long for players to find the absolute best way to farm in Remix: Mists of Pandaria! And no, we're not talking about the Tillers' farm!
      The Timeless Isle and its frogs are back and are the focus of all the farming going on at the moment, as it seems to be the best way to get pretty much everything you want from the event! The frogs are elites and tend to hyper spawn (meaning they have an incredibly fast spawn rate when enough players kill them quickly enough), especially when farmed in groups. You can find the frogs around 65, 75.

      They drop the event currency, Bronze, items you can disenchant into Bronze, Lesser Charms which you can use to increase your reputation with most Pandaria factions and get more Bronze, Timeless Coins for Timeless Isle rewards, and even Epic Threads for the Cloak of Infinite Potential! One player even reported getting 15,000k Bronze, 100,000 Timeless Coins, 3,000 Lesser Charms, and many gems is just an hour!
      As the method has become more popular, actually getting to tag the mobs is the real trick here, or you need to find a time when there are fewer players there.
      The community is split on the issue, as some are enjoying the very fast speed of rewards, but others aren't too happy with the very boring activity being the go-to if you want to get things done fast.
      Here's a video going over the method, and showcasing some intense frog action!


      So if you want tot try this out, good luck with the mob tagging and/or finding a less populated area!
