Awesome Hallowfall Crystal Void Switch Animation

Recommended Posts

Clipboard01.jpg
 

We've all seen the giant Hallowfall crystal and just how great it looks, but as it turns out, the light emanating from it actually changes in a sort of strange day/night cycle, and we get a really awesome transition into Void light animation! 

First off we can see a snippet of the change in Blizzard's official short preview of the zone:

And then there's this extended look at the switch, showcasing just how impressive the animations are, by PreachGaming's Chunkeyninja:

And here's a slightly better look at the Void to Light transition, courtesy of Kexman:

The exact timing on the cycle isn't 100% clear, but MrGM noted how it works on the Alpha right now, with a 3 hour cycle, as the Void part remains active for 30 minutes:


Hopefully we'll also get some lore to go with the transition, as the light into void thing is pretty thematically interesting, as well as being really visually impressive.

Who the hell is this guy and why you started to promo him so much?! It's so trash and low quality.. are you injecting unblockable, hardcoded ads into the site and constant subscription pop-ups, but recently can't write your own content..

We recently switched to a new advertising partner and are actively working on optimizing this new system. Please report any specific issues you encounter with ads directly to us, and we'll make sure they are addressed promptly and forwarded to our ad provider.

Are you referring to MrGM? We often link to other content creators who have made interesting discoveries, but we also have a wealth of our own content. We cover class changes, model previews, weekly to-do lists, mounts, live blog developer streams for D4, and much more. If you think there's room for improvement, please share any specific ideas or concerns you have. I'm eager to hear your thoughts and explore ways we can enhance our news coverage.

Thanks!

Looking forward to Hallowfall, seems to be the most interesting zone, especially with this zone "switch" mechanic. Will be interesting to see if the music changes as well.

Which "guy"? There's three content creators being linked to in the article. I personally really like linking to community members and sharing their discoveries whenever we can - instead of seeing them then getting our own screenshots etc and pretending we discovered/thought of it ourselves. We still do plenty of our own content, but if linking to content creators upsets you, that's mostly on me specifically since I think it's a great thing to do (but you're totally free to disagree, especially on individual content creators).

I assume you are referring to MrGM (He does show up here a ton yeah) - He is a former Private Server Content Creator who by that origin has me baffled at how he became so accepted by Blizzard and the community. Anyway, recently tho he has been doing very well in doing the ye-old Youtube trick of covering "New and hot content" (Related to WoW ofc) by posting low effort videos where he pads as much as he can to try and reach the 10 minute Youtube timer. (Only dodging it when he absolutely can't reach it without so much padding that the average viewer would be bothered by it). Despite how soulless his work is, he is quick and gets info out there in a way that allows you to just "Absorb the info while doing other stuff" as opposed to reading trough anything yourself, and since he covers any and everything related to WoW; You'll likely always find what you need in terms of new WoW info on his channel.

      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!
