Best Un'Goro Standard Decks for End of Season 38 Ladder Climbing

Glowcap Festival
Glowcap Festival allows players to help keep Fshoo alive in Sporeggar to earn reputation.

  • Head to Sporeggar in Zangarmarsh to take part in this holiday.
  • Mushrooms will spawn around the town, giving you Glowcap and other helpful items:
  • You can purchase all four of the items above from Mycah, the Sporeggar Quartermaster.
  • You can also loot a Pungent Truffle, allowing you to transform into a sporeling for 24 hours.
  • Fshoo spawns periodically, gaining stacks of Fshoo Grow. Each stack increases his size by 1% and health by 100%.
  • Fshoo also loses health at a constant rate, making him harder and harder to heal as the grow stacks appear.
  • Using the items and healing him to keep him alive as long as possible is the objective.
  • When Fshoo dies he will give everyone 50 Sporeggar reputation for every stack of the buff he had.



Raid Preview: Tomb of Sargeras
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, the combined forces of the Class Orders have fought their way through the Broken Shore to reach the Tomb of Sargeras. With weapons of great power and the Pillars of Creation at hand, the defenders of Azeroth must face these last foes before the portal is sealed, cutting off the Burning Legion’s access to Azeroth.

Minimum Level: 110
Location: The Broken Shore
Bosses: 9
Difficulty: Raid Finder, Normal, Heroic, Mythic

Aegwynn used this sacred temple of Elune to lock away the defeated Sargeras’ avatar. She hoped it would remain dormant, buried deep within the earth, but the lure of power has continued to draw foul entities to this site. When Gul’dan reentered the tomb, he tore down Aegwynn’s wards and opened a doorway for the Legion to invade. Now the fel army tears at the vault, hoping to reclaim their master’s power.

Developer Insights: In structuring the Tomb of Sargeras, we simultaneously wanted to deliver an interior worthy of the epic façade that towers over the Broken Shore, while also leaving room for variety in both atmosphere and the types of bosses standing in players’ path. That goal informed the overall layout of the raid, and the flow from start to finish.

Encounters and Bosses
You can learn a bit about each of the bosses below. Make sure you check out the in-game Adventure Guide (Shift-J) for a full list of tips for Healers, Damage Dealers, and Tanks.

Developer Insights: The top level of the Tomb is a direct reflection of the aesthetic of the exterior, and players who have spent time in the Cathedral of Eternal Night dungeon will recognize the nave that the entrance overlooks. This area is under complete Legion control, and the Armies of Legionfall must overcome some of the fiercest demonic commanders in order to gain a foothold in the Tomb.


Goroth
As punishment for past failures Goroth’s flesh is marred with searing wounds. With every movement this behemoth makes, his flesh crackles and hisses with unending torment, a scourge he is happy to inflict upon those who oppose him.


Demonic Inquisition
Anticipating the arrival of mortal forces invading the Tomb of Sargeras, Kil’jaeden has called on his best captors, Atrigan and Belac, to lock down the interlopers and prevent them from using the Pillars to advance deeper into the dungeon.

Developer Insights: The arrival of the infernal lord Goroth also opens an ancient passage that leads outside the Tomb’s structure, into caverns surrounding its foundations. This allows the second section of the raid to have a significantly different feel from the rest, guiding players through a mix of natural caverns and ancient ruins as they contend with a host of Queen Azshara’s naga minions. This theming is also closely connected to the Tidestone of Golganneth, one of the Pillars of Creation that are the key to sealing the Legion assault of Azeroth.


Harjatan
Harjatan was trained from birth to demolish his enemies. Through a conquest of savage brutality, he gathered throngs of cave dwelling murlocs who see him as a god. Now, the naga brute merely has to bark a command and hordes of devout followers set themselves to task.


Mistress Sassz’ine
Mistress Sassz’ine has spent a lifetime binding the denizens of the ocean to her dark will. With this power, she summons nightmares from the briny depths to wash away any who dare challenge her.

Developer Insights: After working their way through the waterlogged caverns beneath the Tomb, players emerge back into lower levels of the Tomb, previously sealed away from the world since ancient times. Thematically, this showcases the elven origins of the Tomb as the one-time Temple of Elune, pristine (though heavily cobwebbed!) and with a decidedly different color scheme than the black-and-fel of the entry hall. But, of course, the influence of the dark power that Aegwynn imprisoned beneath the Tomb has worked its influence upon these halls over the course of centuries…


Sisters of the Moon
The Sisters of the Moon served as wardens for the temple long before the avatar of Sargeras was buried beneath it. Even in death, the sisters maintained their vigil, but over the millennia something twisted their ability to distinguish friend from foe. Their madness slowly consumed them, and now any who enter their sacred chambers are put to death.


The Desolate Host
Once, this was a sacred burial site for the night elves, until the Legion corrupted these grounds with the Engine of Souls. This foul machine draws upon the energy of the dead, twisting them into abominations.These tormented spirits have become monstrosities, looking to feed on any who descend into the tomb’s depths.

Developer Insights: Finally, players return to the entry hall of the raid, having used the Pillars of Creation to open a path leading to the final seal, located in the very chamber of the Fallen Avatar of Sargeras, miles beneath the surface. Both the architecture and the foes here reflect the influence of the titans: As mighty as Aegwynn was, a prison for the power of the dark titan was not to be solely of her own making. Crafting the chamber of the Fallen Avatar was a particular challenge, given the scale of the foe players would need to confront. The battle with the Avatar will destroy and transform the players’ surroundings, as they contend with both the threat posed by the blows of the Avatar, and with managing an ever-shrinking playspace.

Of course, the raid does not end with the Fallen Avatar. The battle against Kil’jaeden himself takes players far beyond the walls of the Tomb itself, and even beyond the bounds of our world...


Maiden of Vigilance
Charged by Aegwynn to defend the Tomb of Sargeras, the Maiden of Vigilance has stood watch for hundreds of years. Yet, the guardian did not foresee what effect the avatar’s seeping fel energy would have on this titan construct. Slowly warped by this maleficence, the maiden now seeks to destroy any in her path.


Fallen Avatar
When Aegwynn defeated the Avatar of Sargeras, she was unable to destroy his avatar. In an effort to seal it away, the armor was entombed beneath the Temple of Elune, where it remained dormant for hundreds of years. Now, with the Legion tearing down the tomb’s barriers, Kil’jaeden is in a position to reanimate the armor and unleash its power on Azeroth.


Kil’jaeden
Since striking the bargain that chased the Draenei into the stars, Kil’jaeden believed the Legion could not be stopped—yet, none of his deceptions have prevented you from reaching this critical moment. Infuriated that Sargeras’ promise of victory has never come to pass, the demon lord prepares to face you himself, for a final battle that will shape Azeroth’s destiny forever.


We’ll see you in the tomb!

Appear Offline
Apologies on the last thread capping. We've upped the cap on this one, so please use this thread going forward.

As we've said in the past, an offline mode is something we would like to see through the Blizzard App, and it's still being looked into. We've had other projects over the past few years that have pushed this out a bit so I think our original communication may have been a bit ahead of its time, but I've made sure the team is aware that this is still a feature players would like to see.

Yes, you must complete the Broken Shore campaign to begin the questline for your class mount. (WarcraftDevs)

Achievements
how long will 'The Chosen' achievement be available?
"The Chosen" will likely go away eventually, possibly when the Legion expansion ends, but we don't plan to end it in the very near future. (WarcraftDevs)

World Quests
I keep getting trinkets rolled with intellect instead of strength from WQ/Invasion caches, loot spec is set to retribution.
World Quest loot (including caches) has always been class-based and not spec-based. (WarcraftDevs)

PvP
is the 150 wins requirement is only after faction changing and not if you play by default on the same faction
Cruel/Ferocious Gladiator requires 150 wins on a character in a season. If you faction change the character, the count is reset (WarcraftDevs)

confused #echoesofbattle pvp currency. i have some but have no idea where to spend it to buy a piece for the 75
Vendors for that currency are in Dalaran in Greymane’s Enclave and Windrunner’s Sanctuary. (WarcraftDevs)

any chance of randomising the pvp world quest spawn times a bit... black rook brawl and murloc never spawn when I'm on
Our internal analysis shows an equal distribution, but we see reports like this one regularly. We’ll investigate this. (WarcraftDevs)

Since you need PvE gear to be moderately successful in PvP why even make PvP gear anymore?
Balancing the rewards from PvP and PvE is indeed challenging, but we see many high iLvl characters who are using gear exclusively from PvP. (WarcraftDevs)

Squirky
Is this a permanent addition, or limited time?
There are currently no plans to limit the availability. (Muffinus)

Wait do you need to buy plushie if you wanna get pet in game?:P
Nope! Just put your pet battling hat on and head out to Seabreak Isle! Watch out for the murlocs! (Muffinus)

    May as well just shut WoW down altogether at that point. There's no way a WoW 2 will ever happen and even it if did it would only spell disaster for WoW.

    You either force everyone to start over, which for many people the only reason they continue to play WoW is because of all the effort they put into the game over the years (I'm one of these people. If they ever do exactly what you're suggesting I will fully quit because I will have lost everything I worked for. It's why I have never been able to get into other MMOs.).

    You have 2 simultaneous MMOs from the same company at once which does nothing but splinter the community even more. Also, 1 MMO is expensive enough to upkeep.

    Or you go into WoW 2 and all veteran players keep everything they've worked to collect and at that point you may as well just keep it as current WoW but do a heavy update to the engine.

    So can we expect the Avatar to be this hulking monstrosity as shown in pic between it and Aegwynn or will he be a super generic boss which has no business representing the Avatar?

    Shows you right here the amount of stupid they wield and they are proud to be this dumb it seems .
    Why have a loot specialisation button if you are going to completely ignore it ?
    Trying to force or lure people to other spec ( Heal/tank ) ? Well for me that operation ends at the next vendor .

    That's not what bothered me. The way the sentence is structured, it implies that the Avatar of Sargeras itself had an avatar, and that Aegwynn was unable to destroy the avatar of the Avatar of Sargeras.

    Should've read:
    When Aegwynn defeated the Avatar of Sargeras, she was unable to destroy it.
    or
    When Aegwynn defeated Sargeras, she was unable to destroy his avatar.

    A raid going through a hole in the wall to go into sewers/catacombs, so refreshing....
    Where has your originality gone Blizzard?
  1. huldu's Avatar
    The biggest problem with this expansion has been the rng and you'd think they have learned something from it but no. The next "what we did wrong" will be painfully obvious to what they'll talk about. I'm still shocked at the amount of "content" in this expansion - yet you feel like there is nothing to *really* do.
