Blackrock Foundry Release Date

Recommended Posts



Blizzard posted the release schedule for the second half of tier 17, the Blackrock Foundry raid. A longer instance at 10 encounters, BRF will reward the class sets for tier 17. The complete release schedule follows.


February 3, 2015 - Normal and Heroic


February 10, 2015 - Mythic


February 17, 2015 - LFR Wing 1


February 24, 2015 - LFR Wing 2


March 10, 2015 - LFR Wing 3


March 24, 2015 - LFR Wing 4


The slower release of the LFR wings harkens back to the pacing of the wings of Throne of Thunder in patch 5.2, and provides a window into some of Blizzard's intended content release pacing - an approximate availability of late April to early May for tier 18 is likely.


A handful of complaints about the 'rapid release' of content have circulated online, but Blackrock Foundry was intentionally held back from release availability to help moderate exactly that. The useful comparison would have been the alternative of having both Highmaul and BRF open in December, and the option Blizzard elected to follow through with is certainly more palatable to most players.


With two full resets of just Highmaul left, best of luck to all the guilds trying to achieve progression results before the new content and gear become available!


Blackrock Foundry's availability schedule has been released - initial access starts February 3, 2015.

      The Archaeology quest for Spirit of Eche'ro is now available on live servers for the next 2 weeks! Don't forget to get the mount before it's gone for another 6 months!
      How to Get the Spirit of Eche'ro Mount
      1. Head to Dalaran and talk to the Archaeology Trainer to receive The Right Path quest where you are sent to Thunder Totem in Highmountain to collect Bone Fragment of Eche'ro for the Spirit of Eche'ro mount. Note that the quest is available only once every six months, so don't forget to complete it before it's gone!
      2. Download MapCoords or some other addons that displays coordinates on the world map.
      3. Teleport to Azsuna from the Stormwind/Orgrimmar Portal Room or use your Dalaran Hearthstone to reach Dalaran.
      4. Go to 41,26 find Dariness the Learned and learn Archaeology if you already haven't.
      5. Accept The Right Path quest from the Archaeology Trainer and fly to Thunder Totem in Highmountain.
      6. Talk to Lessah Moonwater to accept Laying to Rest. For the quest, you must collect 600 Bone Fragments of Eche'ro by rotating between four digsites located in Highmountain. The exact location is outlined below.
      Digsite 1: Darkfeather Valley (50, 44) Digsite 2: Dragon's Falls (58, 72) Digsite 3: Path of Huin (44, 72) Digsite 4: Whitewater Wash (39, 65) Spirit of Eche'ro
      "The spirit of Huln Highmountain's pet moose."

      Hurry up! You only have until August 23, 2022 to get the mount!

      You no longer need to be in a rested area to change talents in Dragonflight. The only requirement is being out of combat.
      Blizzard made some changes to how talents and loadouts work in the latest Alpha update. We went to check it out in-game. Changing your specialization incurs a cast of around 5 seconds, the same as on live servers, but you can now change your spec anywhere in the open world.

      Changing loadouts (pre-saved talent builds) also has a short cast time, most likely to prevent players from switching between builds too fast.

      It's worth noting you cannot switch your spec/loadout during an active RBG or Mythic+ dungeon.

      The latest round of hotfixes includes changes to Fated Raid Affixes, the previously announced 100% buff to Cosmic Flux gains, and a Season of Mastery Naxxramas fix.
      AUGUST 9, 2022
      Dungeons and Raids
      Fated Castle Nathria Sludgefist Adjusted the Fated Power cooldowns to better align with their ability cadence. Fated Sanctum of Domination Guardian of the First Ones Adjusted the Fated Power cooldowns to better align with their ability cadence. Kel'Thuzad Fixed an interaction where Protoform Barrier (Fated Power) could erroneously trigger after Kel'Thuzad's health is depleted. Sylvanas Windrunner Adjusted the Fated Power cooldowns to better align with their ability cadence in Phase 2. Mythic+ Shrouded Affix Fixed an issue that could cause Zul'gamux to not cast Blood Siphon if she was moving. Items and Rewards
      Increased all Cosmic Flux rewards from PvP, Mythic+, and Raids by 100%. Cosmic Flux will now be mailed to players when left un-looted. Trashmaster's Mantle received from Mythic+ or the Great Vault can no longer be used to complete the "I Am the Trashmaster" quest. Developers’ note: Players hoping to become the Trashmaster may do so by finding a Trashmaster's Mantle in Operation: Mechagon on standard Mythic difficulty. Players who have received a Trashmaster's Mantle from Mythic+ since the start of Season 4 may still use it to complete the quest, but should be aware that the Richly Appointed Drape quest reward will be awarded at item level 78. Quests
      Fixed an issue that prevented “Tempting Fate” world quests from appearing. Season of Mastery
      Naxxramas Fixed an issue where bonus loot could not be rewarded when defeating a boss using Runes of Fortune. Developers’ note: Raid groups should always receive an extra Set Piece Token, piece of Gear the boss normally drops, or Splinter of Atiesh per stack of Rune of Fortune the raid has active.

      Blizzard reduced the cooldown of Soar to 4 minutes in this week's Dragonflight Alpha build. On top of that, an updated racial passive now reduces the cooldown by another minute, resulting in a 3-minute cooldown on the Dracthyr Evoker racial.
      In Dragonflight Alpha Build 44895, Blizzard nerfed Soar's maximum speed from 930% to 640%. In this week's Alpha Build 44999, the cooldown of Soar was reduced to 4 minutes (down from 5). The Familiar Skies (Racial Passive) was changed from: You fly 20% faster on continents that you have fully explored. to Soar's cooldown by 1 minute on continents that you have fully explored. If you fully explore a continent, you can have Soar on a 3-minute cooldown.

      Blizzard made some changes to the Dragonriding turn rate tech in this week's Dragonflight Alpha build. Dragonriding hotbars can be customized through drag-and-drop just like a druid's bar when using forms.
      Here again with a few updates that went live with this build:
      When we introduced turn rate tech, we wanted to make sure the when of a turn mattered. However, we might have been too heavy-handed with those values. Now that we’ve found the outer limits, we’ve re-tuned turn rate to lessen its impact. We continue to iterate on the balance here and welcome your feedback. Please give it a try, in questing, time trials, or both, and share your experience with us.
      In addition, we’ve improved the hotbars for dragonriding, allowing players to customize their hotbars through drag-and-drop as normal, much like a druid’s bar when in bear form (or other cool forms). This also resolves some issues like not being able to use abilities to dismount and not being able to interact with quest items while mounted. (If you lose your dragonriding abilities, check your spellbook. Characters from previous alpha builds may not have these skills, but new characters in this build should see them there.)
      Fixed issues include: Rostrum settings now won’t reset when switching dragons, and “Accept” purchases all selections made. Dragonriding visual effects should no longer persist when getting kicked off a mount. Dragonriding visual effects should no longer display on other players in unexpected situations. Players that aren’t Dracthyr or Demon Hunters can no longer double jump after dismounting a dragonriding mount. New known issues include: Occasionally, a character attempting to progress down the skill track will be unable to take new traits, even though they have enough currency. A relog should solve this in most cases.
