Hello Timerunners!

As we approach the end of the second week of WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria, we’d like to take a moment to talk about some very recent updates we’ve made and look forward to the next 11+ weeks that the event will be available.

We’ve now made several changes to address some issues we’ve seen, especially around max level content such as heroic scenarios, heroic dungeons, and raids. Our goal here is to address the sudden increase in enemy power at level 70 for group content and make the transition to higher difficulty raids smoother for players.

  • Heroic Scenario, Heroic Dungeon, and Normal Raids increase in power more slowly between levels 60 and 70. When first reaching level 70, players will continue to be challenged by max-level content, but that increase in difficulty should now be noticeably lessened.
  • Heroic and Mythic raids have been adjusted so there is a smoother transition between them. Before these changes, there was a stark difference in the power of each raid. Now, players should experience a smoother transition that feels more like a natural progression instead of a huge step.

Even with recent hotfixes in place, there is still a significant increase in difficulty for Heroic Throne of Thunder, Heroic Siege of Orgrimmar, and Mythic Siege of Orgrimmar. WoW Remix is designed to provide players who wish to take on the toughest challenges with the means to do so, by upgrading their gear and collecting additional threads.

Looking forward, we want you to know that we do not plan to change the Bronze cost of upgrading gear. We’ve already seen many players make the decision to upgrade items so that they can comfortably take on Heroic raids (and hopefully earn the large amounts of Bronze available from them). The gains in power that come with increasing your item levels are exponential, not linear, and we don’t want anyone to second-guess their decision to become much more powerful.

For players who primarily wish to gather Bronze and acquire some of the cosmetic rewards available in Remix, many options have emerged. We’re seeing some players level up multiple alts for the 40,000 Bronze available from quests at levels 50, 60, and 70, while other players mainly focus on earning Bronze with multiple level-70 characters doing queued content and repeatable daily quests and activities.

We’ll outline all of our recent Remix hotfixes in our hotfixes update post, and we’ll continue to read all of your feedback. It’s been a lot of fun to go on this journey with you.

Thank you very much!

I get that they want us to be running this for the full 3 months to maximize their profit but my concern with the upgrade costs is how long are people going to be running the raids?  The froggers already got what they wanted and dumping all your bronze to upgrade your gear to be able to raid ain't gonna mean much if you can't put together a raid.

      In our latest story, we follow Solozerro, a player on a quest to solo Mythic Siege of Orgrimmar in MoP Remix!
      @solozerro often streams his progress, so  you can catch him on Twitch!
      So far, Solozerro has soloed five Siege of Orgrimmar bosses on Mythic difficulty in MoP Remix and released videos documenting every kill.
      Immerseus and Norushen
      The first two bosses were the easy ones when looking at pure DPS/HP checks. Solozerro tackled them early with an Item Level of 476 and a cloak with 400k stats. Both fights were long, but the incoming damage wasn't really significant.
      Fallen Protectors
      Fallen Protectors were a bit tricky. Solozerro managed to push them in tank spec during berserk at around 10% HP, but the berserk phase was rough due to the double stuns. He had to switch to DPS and figure out a way to phase Rook and Sun first, then stack them up for the He Softfoot phase.
      Galakras
      The boss cannot be soloed currently, so the player skipped Galakras.
      Shamans and Iron Juggernaut
      When talking about the next couple of bosses, Solozerro said, "here is where the fun begins." The DPS check to beat them before berserk is very high, so he had to min-max cooldown usage for over 20 minutes. One mistake could end in a wipe. For Iron Juggernaut, there was a 20-minute bleed effect or longer.
      As for the Shamans, they had the same stacking debuff that had to be kited while keeping track of the Mythic mechanic, according to Solozerro.
      What's Next?
      Right now, Solozerro is working on soloing General Nazgrim! He's doable, but you can't miss interrupts and need to constantly move because of the healing the adds provide.
      Solozerro's current item level is 476 with all stats capped. His daily routine includes clearing all LFRs, all raids, all dailies, and of course, the Troves Scenario on Isle of Thunder. After that, he farms rares on Timeless Isle!

      And for those curious, here are the player's cloak stats!

      We wish Solozerro the best of luck, and we'll be covering his progress here at Icy Veins too!

      Learn more about the Matrix Catalyst in the War Within that lets you transform non-set items into tier set pieces!
      You'll find the Matrix Catalyst in Dornogal, the capital city for both factions.

      Nearby, you'll see Custodian Khubon, the Catalyst Steward for the expansion.
      You can ask him about the Catalyst, though he's somewhat misguided. He believes the famed titan keepers crafted it, but we've had this for three expansions now, so we know the real story.


      To convert a non-set item into a set piece, you must insert an eligible Veteran track or higher Season 1 item, following a structure similar to the previous expansion.

      As for catalyst charges,  I think you will get your first charge when Season 1 starts on September 10 and every other week you will receive an additional charge.

      Larovus has hit the jackpot for the year! Both the rare Tusks of Mannoroth and the Kor'kron Juggernaut mount dropped from a single Mythic Garrosh kill.
      Fortunately, you can now kill Garrosh on a daily basis, but it still requires a lot of luck to loot both items simultaneously, as they have a drop rate of about 1%.

      Here's a close-up of the loot window. As you can see, Larovus has looted the Tusks of Mannoroth and the Kor'kron Juggernaut mount in one kill.

      Have you had any luck with double rare raid drops? Let me know in the comments below!

      The War Within Season 1 adds new kiss/curse affixes and here is a spreadsheet with class specializations that will benefit from the kiss portion of each affix.
      New Kiss/Curse Affixes in War Within Season 1
      Blizzard recently unveiled the following kiss/curse affixes making its way to Mythic+ in Season 1.
      Attuned - Non-boss enemies with mana inflict 20% more magic damage, but take 10% increased Nature damage and 30% increased damage from Bleed effects. Focused - Non-boss enemies with mana have 30% increased Haste, but take 10% increased Frost and Fire damage. Reckless - Non-boss enemies without mana ignore 20% armor with their attacks, but their armor is reduced by 30% and they take 10% increased Arcane damage. Thorned - Non-boss enemies without mana inflict Physical damage to their attackers when attacked, but take 10% increased Holy and Shadow damage. Which Classes/Specializations Benefit from the Kiss Portion the Most?
      If you read the affix tooltips, it is obvious that some classes will benefit more from their effect. For instance, during Reckless weeks, you want to bring an Arcane Mage, or a Balance Druid, and so forth.
      Denethar has created a useful spreadsheet covering which specs benefit from the affixes the most, you can find it here.

      The Prismatic Bauble toy is easier to purchase during this month! 
      Usually, the toy's available for 250,000 gold from the Mad Merchant who doesn't spawn often. However, during Pride Month, you can purchase Prismatic Bauble directly from Jepetto Joybuzz in Legion Dalaran, avoiding the long wait.
      The toy will still cost 250,000 Gold, though. You can find Jepetto Joybuzz at the Dalaran Toyworks.


      Happy Pride Month!
