  • [With restarts in each region] Argus Waystones no longer drop from bosses in Invasion Points. Any Argus Waystones in your possession have been converted to Veiled Argunite.
  • [With restarts in each region] The quests Invasion Point Offensive and Invasion Onslaught no longer require Argus Waystones.
  • [With restarts in each region] The Argussian Reach emissary again requires 4 World Quests completed.

Classes

Creatures
  • The yetis of Feralas should once again have facial hair.

Dungeons and Raids
  • Vault of the Wardens
    • Fixed a bug preventing Inquisitor Tormentorum’s associates from automatically engaging players.

Tomb of Sargeras
  • Demonic Inquisition
    • The number of Echoing Anguish debuffs has been reduced to 2 (was 3) on Raid Finder, Normal, and Heroic difficulties.
  • Kil’jaeden
    • [Hotfix in testing] Reduced the health of Kil’jaeden, Erupting Reflection, and Shadowsoul by 5% on all difficulties.
    • [Hotfix in testing] The maximum distance from the center of the platform that Armageddon can spawn has been reduced on all difficulties.
    • [Hotfix in testing] The radius of the explosion from Bursting Dreadflame has been reduced on all difficulties.
    • [Hotfix in testing] Chaotic Eruption damage and knockup has been reduced on Mythic difficulty.

Player versus Player
  • All specs that received general damage increases above have been reduced by an equivalent amount in PvP, as the Netherlight Crucible’s item-level increases to the player’s Artifact weapon have very little impact on PvP.

World Boss - Humongris
Pocket Wizard is up this week, so you can head to Val'sharah to kill Humongris for a chance at item level 860 items and a Iron Relic.

Get out your best map and plan your route across every part of the Broken Isles, as this is a great time to immerse yourself in World Quests.

This Week
All week, open your map (default hotkey: m) and then select any of the five main Broken Isles zones to consider the World Quests available to you. Hover your mouse over a World Quest on the map to see what tasks are needed complete it, the rewards you’ll receive, and the time remaining that the quest is available to you.

Look for the following all week long:


If you’ve been looking to impress some emissaries, this is the week to do it!

    Things that weren't addressed in 7.3's week 3 content that should have.

    1. Aleria's reaction and/or struggle to control...

    Actually, let me start again.

    1. Explain what happened to Aleria. What new powers does she have?
    2. Aleria's reaction and/or struggle to control what happened to her.
    3. The Ethereal's reaction.
    4. Turalyon's reaction.
    5. Velen's reaction.
    6. Illidan's reaction.
    7. Explain why completing an artifact that hasn't been together for tens of thousands of years, when completed, turned the ship into the one the Army of the Light was in before.
    8. Show us someone on board showing some sort of surprise or curiosity over what happened to the ship.


    Bliz just threw a bunch of 'cool' stuff at us without any explanation or reaction from anyone. Not even random NPC's gossiping among themselves. I'm all for 'woah, holy shit' moments, but at least spend the time to make others react to help explain things. Otherwise it just feels 'eh'.

    Yup, this is 3rd grade storytelling with Blizzards budget.

    If you talk to Alleria in the Vindicaar near the navigation console by Turalyon, there's a new dialogue option which says "What happened to you at the Seat of the Triumvirate?". You guys should read it.

    The thing I was confused about was that Alleria essentially turns into a friggin DROW in the cinematic. And then when back on the ship she just her normal self. I wanted to see her with the black skin and white hair!
  1. EyelessCrow's Avatar
    Yeah this was just all really confusing. She absorbs all that shadow and looks like she's a freaking negative. Then back at the ship she's normal and all "Oh yeah I can just use it whenever I want, explanation over bye!"

    Finally!!! Every time I asked a GM when this would be fixed I got the same reply,
    "Not Yeti"

    This cinematic could have easily just been played-out in game, it's so simple. Why not another cinematic with actual weight?
