Warlords of Draenor - Old Raid Finder and Scenario Content
The latest alpha build added NPCs that allow you to queue for older content, such as Dragon Soul Raid Finder, Mists of Pandaria Raid Finder, and Mists of Pandaria Scenarios.

You can queue by yourself or with a group for all of this content, and whoever is in the group will be able to enter the instance. There is no automatic matchmaking.



Warlords of Draenor Alpha - Shadowmoon Valley Next Build
It looks like things will be reversed next build, and players will only have access to Alliance and Shadowmoon Valley, rather than Horde and Frostfire Ridge.



Censer of Eternal Agony Hotfix
The Censer of Eternal Agony has been hotfixed to have a 1 hour cooldown, up from 10 minutes.



New Character Models - Facial Features Variation

No, not at all. But I don't think we've said anywhere the face options currently present in Alpha are the intended final result of the updated character models. We'll probably do an Artcraft piece on facial options sometime soon, as it's actually a somewhat complex and interesting piece on how the original art was created, and the difficulties of translating that to higher resolution models and animations.

The tooltips on the character sheet are actually misleading. Base Armor DR and Bonus Armor DR can't be combined. You need to combine the Base Armor and Bonus Armor, and then formulate a Total Armor DR (DR=Armor/(Armor+K)). Future alpha build will have that fixed. K is looked up in the game tables as mentioned, but for easy reference, it's 3610 for a 100 attacker, and 5234 for a 103 attacker.

I realized that with stat-squish affecting everything, the stats of low level weapons are totally in a mess where 164lv 2h could be lower than 115lv 2h and a lv35 quest reward could not find update until lv70…do devs have any plan to fix that to make up for the feeling of powering up and rewarding during leveling of new toons?
I think what you're seeing is how the level jumps in between expansions were removed. I don't see the lvl35 quest reward that you're referring to. Also remember that in old expansions, the power of an item was based on its ilvl *and* its quality. That's not the case at high level gear, but still is in low level gear. A Karazhan item was better than a Netherstorm item. Now that there's a smooth progression from Netherstorm to Howling Fjord, the Karazhan item can be better than Howling Fjord too, which is appropriate for its difficulty.

Players vs Lower Level Creatures, Damage Taken/Dealt Adjustments
Here are the details about how you'll still be able to solo old raids (without being Mione). This includes pseudo-code, so get your imaginary interpreters ready.

Also asked of me on twitter... Bosses are treated as IntendedLevel+3. So Garr is a 63, and Lich King is an 83, as far as these formulae go.

Damage Taken Reduction
All players receive a damage reduction factor when attacked by a creature that is lower level. This applies only to creatures from expansions prior to Mists of Pandaria. All damage taken from qualifying creatures is multiplied by DamageTakenFactor, as determined below:

LevelDiff = PlayerLevel - CreatureLevel
if (CreatureExpansion < Pandaria) then
// 10% DR per level diff, with a floor of 10%
DamageTakenFactor = max(1.0 - 0.1 * LevelDiff, 0.1)
else
DamageTakenFactor = 1.0
end

Damage Dealt Increase
All players receive a damage increase factor when dealing damage to a creature that is lower level. This applies only to creatures from expansions prior to Mists of Pandaria. All damage dealt to qualifying creatures is multiplied by DamageDealtFactor, as determined below:

LevelDiff = PlayerLevel - CreatureLevel
if (CreatureExpansion >= Pandaria) then
DamageDealtFactor = 1.0
elseif (LevelDiff < 5) then
// Ranges from 1.0625 to 1.25 vs. 1-4 LevelDiffs
DamageDealtFactor = 1 + 0.0625 * LevelDiff
elseif (LevelDiff < 10) then
// Ranges from 4.0 to 6.0 vs. 5-9 LevelDiffs
DamageDealtFactor = 1.5 + 0.5 * LevelDiff
else
// Maximum factor of 16.5 vs. 10+ LevelDiffs
DamageDealtFactor = 16.5
end

Alternate Inter-Expansion Damage Adjustments
We also want to provide power growth within an expansion, despite the fact that we've flattened the ilvl power curve within each old expansion. This applies only to creatures from expansions prior to Mists of Pandaria. To do that, we calculate an alternate set of damage dealt/taken factors, and use either these ones, or the normal ones, whichever is most beneficial to the player.

MaxPlayerLevelsByExpansion = {69, 79, 84, 89, 99, 109}
IntendedItemLevelByExpansion = {65, 115, 200, 346, 463, 609}
MaxPlayerLevel = MaxPlayerLevelsByExpansion[CreatureExpansion]
IntendedItemLevel = IntendedItemLevelByExpansion[CreatureExpansion]

if (PlayerLevel <= MaxPlayerLevel and
PlayerEquippedItemLevel > IntendedItemLevel) then
AlternateDamageTakenFactor = 1 - 0.01 * (PlayerEquippedItemLevel - IntendedItemLevel)
AlternateDamageDealtFactor = 1 + 5/3*0.01 * (PlayerEquippedItemLevel - IntendedItemLevel)
DamageTakenFactor = min(DamageTakenFactor, AlternateDamageTakenFactor)
DamageDealtFactor = max(DamageDealtFactor, AlternateDamageDealtFactor)
end

Death Knight (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
The stacking health buff for Blood DKs is simply sliced in half. Every 15 Runic Power spent by Breath of Sindragosa increases Maximum Health by 2.5%
Every other tick of Breath of Sindragosa will trigger an Enhanced Death Coil effect. (5% every other tick, not 2.5% every tick)

Presuming that partial blood tap charges are effectively floored ( 1.3 charges is treated as 1 charge, not 2, in terms of being able to spend it or not), do you foresee any problems with the partial charges being useless? Focusing on raiding in PVE, and presuming that conversion seems similar levels of use to mists (read: none), we'll be getting 1 or 2 charges from everything bar Dsim, and it takes 4 Dsim's to generate a "bonus charge". Uses of Dsim are already few and far between, and looking for 4 or more uses in any one combat length is rare. Do you plan on having partial charges decay at the same rate as normal charges to avoid using Dsim 3 times prior to a fight to build up .9 charges?
It takes 3 Dark Sims to collect the partial charge into a full charge. Also, conversion will likely be more valuable because of this change. This is purely a bonus, so not concerned if a couple tiny fractions are left over unused at the end of a fight.

I'm also curious if you happen to have the ppm of rune of the fallen crusader, and cinderglacier, and if there are any plans to make ppms as transparent as rppms in the spell data.
Fallen Crusader is now 2 RPPM. Cinderglacier is now 1.5*Haste RPPM.

Druid (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
Ferals when shifting into caster form lose our Mastery, AP conversion from agility, Savage Roar, and the 5% crit we get from cat form. This is the way it has always been which hasn't been a problem until now. Previously if we shifted into caster form our snapshotted bleeds stayed ticking for the same amount.

Now that DoT's are updating dynamically if we shift into caster form current DoT's lose everything. I am guessing this is just something that hasn't been accounted for with the new dynamic DoT system, but I wanted to make sure it was on the radar, and verify that it is not expected.

A couple builds from now... Mastery will work regardless of form. Agi->AP already works regardless of form. Savage Roar will be snapshot on bleeds. Leader of the Pack will still be lost in caster form.

How does the new pandemic mechanic for DoTs work with specific abilities that snapshot?

For example: If I am specced into Bloody Talons and apply a Rip, then use a healing touch to gain the 30% increase on my next two abilities, and then Re-apply rip for the 130% duration. Does that entire duration of the new Rip benefit from Bloody Talons, or only the base 16 seconds(22 seconds with 3 extensions via shred)

The entire 130%-of-normal duration of the Rip would benefit.

Mage (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
To clarify Improved Blizzard perk: is it triggered once per tick per target, or just once per tick regardless of number of targets?
Per damage event. A Blizzard on empty ground does nothing. A Blizzard on 10 enemies reduces Frozen Orb's cooldown by 10sec per Blizzard tick. (Yes, that may be too strong; we'll see how it goes in testing.)

Does Improved Icy Veins affect glyphed Icy Veins? If so, how much additional Multistrike does it provide? (17.5%?)
Recently changed the glyph to be 30% Multistrike. Perk bumps that up to 45%.

Is Enhanced Arcane Blast just treated as 5% haste for that one spell (dividing cast time by 1.05, multiplicative with other haste)?
No, it's a multiplier on cast time. It multiplies Arcane Blast's cast time by (1-0.05*ChargeCount). (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Yes. We want players who have spent the time and effort to collect endgame Mists of Pandaria gear to go into the expansion with a bit of an advantage. We also need to make sure that players who haven't been farming endgame gear aren't struggling just to complete their first few quests in Warlords. That means, much like previous expansions, your current epic gear will likely last you for a little while into Draenor. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Profession Catch-Up - Skinning
Just following up: Skinning will be using a similar system as Mining and Herbalism, allowing someone to level up their profession purely through high level content by picking, mining, or skinning high level nodes and creatures, regardless of their professions's skill level, gain skill-ups from doing so, and obtain materials usable for crafting. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Druid (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
Balance Druid Feedback
Yeah, the biggest problem I think is that Moon/Sunfire do too much direct damage at the moment. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Shaman (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
Shaman Weapon Imbues
We didn't feel that Weapon Imbues were offering much in the way of gameplay. For many players, they felt like more of an annoyance ("why can't I Unleash... oh") than a buff. They're also prime targets for reducing action bar clutter. For those reasons, we decided to convert each spec's primary imbue(s) to passive effects.

However, while the effects of Windfury and Flametongue are a core part of the Enhancement rotation, Earthliving for Restoration and Flametongue for Elemental are little more than a raw numbers increase. Not really something that we need to clutter up the spellbook with. So, for Resto and Elemental, we decided to remove those effects entirely (and compensate for that when we start numbers tuning). For Enhancement, we merged Windfury and Flametongue into one passive (Enhanced Weapons) that gives the benefits of both effects.

Please be aware that the currently active Alpha build was taken in the middle of a pretty big wave of class changes (for everyone, not just Shaman). We'll be getting a full update to the patch notes out as soon as possible once we've completed that round of changes.

One extra thing I forgot to mention that goes along with this change: Unleash Elements is being split into three different spells, unique to each spec: Unleash Life for Restoration, Unleash Flame for Elemental, and Unleash Elements for Enhancement. Each of those spells acts as Unleash Elements currently does with spec-appropriate imbues active. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Yes (other than the benefit of raid buffs, same as any DPS). (Celestalon)

Were poison proc sounds removed? Not hearing it on Rzn's stream...
Yep! They were so extraordinarily spammy and annoying, we just removed them. (Celestalon)

Death Knight (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
what about dps dk's or survival? they're just % damage on spell schools. Overlap between mastery/versatility... (1/2)
% damage increase to a subset of your abilities is different; it can skew the importance of different abilities. (Celestalon)
But what about balance between the two stats? One increases only some of your damage. Other increases it all but less?
Correct. That's tunable. (Celestalon)

Remove Blood Soul Reaper? Will not be used in rotation at all, since it gives no SoB stacks.
It'll trigger Scent of Blood too. (Celestalon)

Druid (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
Since haste is becoming the overwhelming rage-generation stat for bears, perhaps crit needs some love? Crit=dodge?
We're going to improve Crit further for Bears, though no details quite yet. (Celestalon)

How is the damage of Stellar Flare calculated based on how much Balance Energy you have? And does this damage snapshot?
(1+SolarEclipse)*(1+LunarEclipse). In word... It benefits from both multipliers. Yes, Eclipses are snapshot. (Celestalon)
Can you make an example please? Don't get the formula.
Sure.You have a max Eclipse of 50%.You're currently at 40 Solar Energy.SolarEclipse=50%*(140/200)=+35%....continued... (Celestalon)
LunarEclipse=50%*(60/200)=+15%.Solar spells do 1.35x dmg.Lunar spells do 1.15x dmg.Stellar Flare does 1.35*1.15=1.5525x dmg. (Celestalon)

hey is the dmg bonus from moonkinform snapshot? so if we dot something switch to bear form and there is no 10% dmg loss ?
No, it would not be. (Celestalon)

sorry, last one and then I'll stop. I also assume that Rake (when used in stealth [Ravage] ) not awarding CP's is a bug aswell?
Rake from stealth is like Pounce, not Ravage. (Celestalon)
I got them backwards, but the concern remains. In the Alpha, Rake when used in stealth (pounce) doesn't award CP. Not intended?
Correct. Rake should award CP, regardless of stealth. (Celestalon)

Hunter (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
Any other ideas in mind to replace it? Survival's theme can create lot of traps, explosives, and poison ideas.
No, we don't think they need any more complication. Rather have one fewer button. (Celestalon)
Thanks. Any thoughts on the BM using AS bit then? Largely my biggest remaining concern with Hunter spec flavor.
We don't think a change is worth the confusion, currently. (Celestalon)

Priest (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
What is the design intent/strength of Void Entropy for Shadow? If you could elaborate on the thought process behind it.
Additional orb spender. Very strong damage when the target lives a long time. (Celestalon)

In 6.0, do the partial ticks of SPriest DoTs have a partial chance to proc Divine Insight or Surge of Darkness?
Currently, no, though we're prepared to do that if it becomes an issue. (Celestalon)

Rogue (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
such as combat rogues mastery
We think Combat's Mastery is still suitably different. Welcome to feedback on that matter; give it a try and see how it feels. (Celestalon)

Shaman (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
so resto can be the Palpatine of healing now?
No, it specifically doesn't do that; Chain Heal multistrikes just do additional heals to just that target; no beam. (Celestalon)
But can it fire a beam visual to the person it multistrikes on? This is The Most Important Part!
It recasts the visual for most spells, but not for chained spells. (Celestalon)

Character / Items
So when are the shamans that wasted hours on flex for tmog getting compensated? Bonus Rolls Something.
I know it's a terrible answer, but it's not something we have the ability to track and compensate at this point. (WatcherDev)

Will non-armor items be usable for every spec? Like a 5 man dungeon boss has a cloak in his loot table, can it roll every stat?
No, there'll be competition in those slots too. Just based on stats, instead of armor type. (Celestalon)
...class, since there will be so much rng around stats on gear (sockets, minor stats, warforged)
None of those affect who can use items. Nothing has changed regarding how you form 5-player groups. (Celestalon)

Will current SoO gear be reassigned tertiary stats in 6.0 with the squish? or just hit/expt/spirit replaced?
You'll start to see Minor Stats on Draenor gear. SoO gear will get stat replacements for the obsolete stats. (WatcherDev)

Versatility
So if you pick versatility you trade some DPS for healing / armor (and vice versa)?
Yes. (Damage reduction, not Armor.) (Celestalon)

Will pure dps want versatility over other stats?
Absolutely, sometimes. (Celestalon)

So its basically a stat only for Hybrids? pure dps should avoid it?
No, it's absolutely still valuable to pure DPS. (Celestalon)

Won't versatility be another "god stat"?
Only if we overtune it, which we won't. (Celestalon)
If it is tuned lower considering healing/armor, no one will take that stat. lose/lose either ways
It will not be the highest DPS stat for anyone, but will still be valuable for its versatility. (Celestalon)

Why not make Versatility increase healing taken instead of reducing damage? Would eliminate a lot of potential problems.
Because it feels more rewarding if upgrading your character is reflected in your own performance, not your allies', in general. (Celestalon)
There have been exceptions to that in a few cases, but for a widely-valuable secondary stat, it's a good guideline. (Celestalon)
Maybe increase healing taken and Stamina then? Just seems like the ability to gear into non-DRing damage reduction is an issue.
We initially planned to put diminishing returns on the damage reduction, but decided not to since it hardly makes a difference. (Celestalon)
We normally have to use DRs when some stat scales from -50% to -75% or so (doubles in value otherwise). This goes from 3% to 15%. (Celestalon)
You don't plan on having Vers trinket procs or fight mechanics like Primordius ever again?
Oh sure, we may, but even in those extreme cases, you're talking about going from -10% to -20%. Still negligible scaling. (Celestalon)

Will dps->healing conversions (atonement, leeching poison, etc.) double dip from versatility stat?
They shouldn't, no. We already have safeguards in place for other damage/healing bonuses. (WatcherDev)
Sad day, was hoping to have some fistweaving fun with it ;pah well, c'est la vie!
It's still excellent for Fistweaving, just doesn't scale exponentially. (Celestalon)

Will Versatility affect Mend Pet? Any chance Versatility's dmg reduction or Leech heals could also work on your pet?
Yes, to all of the above. (Celestalon)

if raid-wide Versatility min is ever high enough to be effective, isn't it just the new Shadow Resistance?
If your whole raid decides to stack Versatility, you'll do a bit less damage as a group and take a bit less damage. Seems fine. (WatcherDev)
Resistance was something like a 50-60% damage reduction from a few pieces of gear. Kind of a different story. (WatcherDev)

seems to me that versatilty is basically "all my main stats in a secondary stat", too strong, maybe?
That's down to the numbers tuning. It's definitely balanceable. (WatcherDev)

Versatility = tank stat, plain and simple
It offers something for everyone. You might even say it's... versatile. (WatcherDev)

That was my concern as well. Amplify at least had the benefit of interacting with secondaries.
Amplify didn't really interact - was just bonus stats. Playing up hybrid gameplay/survival is a difference. (WatcherDev)

Hello! Right now Versatility seems too good on paper for non-short enrage timer fight. How much rating will it takes for 1%? Thx
More than it takes for 1% crit. (Celestalon)

Warlords of Draenor - Black Market Auction House
It looks like the Mists of Pandaria location of the black market auction house has been retired and Madam Goya has moved elsewhere.

Update: The Warforged Nightmare is now on the shop site!

Warforged Nightmare - Available Now In-Game Through the Shop
It looks like the Warforged Nightmare isn't available on the website yet, but it appears to be live in game in the US. This mount costs $30, which is $5 more than the usual $25 price.

Using the item that comes in the mail will give you the Nightmarish Hitching Post, which can be used to gain a buff that makes all of your mounts look like the Warforged Nightmare for the next 20 minutes.

Bug Fix

Warlords of Draenor Theorycraft Discussion
Originally Posted by Celestalon (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
One of the new mechanics in Warlords of Draenor for tanks is Resolve. It is similar in design to Vengeance, except without the offensive component. Incoming damage increases the effectiveness of your self-healing, so that things like Shield Block and Shield Barrier stay competitive with each other, both in solo questing, and mythic raiding.

Resolve: Increases your healing and absorption done to yourself, based on Stamina and damage taken (before avoidance and mitigation) in the last 10 sec.

Resolve from Stamina
  • You always get a baseline amount of Resolve, based on Stamina
  • This uses the formula: Stamina / (250 * ItemScaling[PlayerLevel])
  • ItemScaling is a table with a value for each player level, that you can find in the DBC files. Ex: ItemScaling[100]=261
  • This updates dynamically with temporary stamina buffs.

Resolve from Damage Taken
  • You also get some based on damage taken, as a % of Max Health , and decaying over time
  • The server remembers your damage taken events for the last 10 sec.
  • This portion is recalculated every 1.0 seconds and on every damage taken event.
  • Each damaging event grants 0.25 * [ Damage * 2 * ( 10 - ( Now - DamageTimestamp ) ) / 10 ] / MaxHealth
  • This averages to ~Damage/MaxHealth
  • This calculation uses the damage before damage reduction (% damage reduction effects, and armor).
  • Damage that is not mitigated by armor (Spell and Bleed damage) grants 2.5x as much Resolve.
  • Auto-attack damage that is avoided counts as the average amount of damage that that auto-attack would have done.
  • MaxHealth does not include increased max health from temporary multipliers like Last Stand, or Ursa Major.

Additional Notes:
  • Resolve is multiplicative: A heal of size X becomes size X*(1+Resolve).
  • Resolve does not affect percent-based heals (i.e. "heals you for 20% of your life" would be unaffected.
  • There is no quick-ramp-up mechanism or taunt-transfer mechanism
  • Resolve will persist through shapeshifts.
  • Resolve only affects self-heals and self-absorbs
  • It will still have diminishing returns when attacked by multiple mobs (same formula/logic as Vengeance had)

Another opaque mechanic that someone just asked me about on Twitter:
Gift of the Serpent Proc Chance

Gift of the Serpent has a proc chance based on Mastery, and then some spells have a reduced chance per heal. Here is the multiplier on that proc chance for each heal.

  • Renewing Mists = 0.25
  • Chi Wave = 0.25
  • Zen Sphere (Periodic) = 0.25
  • Zen Sphere (Detonate) = 0.15
  • Chi Burst = 0.15
  • Soothing Mists = 0.30
  • Soothing Mists (Statue) = 0.15
  • Enveloping Mist = 0.20
  • Uplift = 0.25
  • Eminence (Self & Xuen) = 0.20
  • Eminence (Statue) = 0.10
  • Chi Torpedo = 0.15
  • Spinning Crane Kick Heal = 0.10
  • All Others = 1.0

Clarification on leveling perks, are they consistently worded to show additive/multiplicative?

  • Improved Raging Blow: Increases damage by 20% --- Multiplicative
  • Improved Unwavering Sentinel: Now increases your armor by an additional 15% -- Additive
  • Bonus question: Anger management, here to stay/gone? If sticking around, will it reduce the same abilities that eye of galakras reduces?

Yes, we've been consistent with the wording on the perks; those guesses are both correct. If you find any counterexamples, they'd be considered bugs, but I don't know of any offhand.

Anger Management will include a list of affected abilities on its tooltip, instead of the reference to Readiness. Undecided which abilities exactly that'll be, yet.

Balance Druids: Mastery procs interacting with Eclipse (+ CA).

Currently, Balance druids have a small issue with Mastery procs. Due to the Eclipse Bonus buff being tied to Mastery, trinket procs may greatly increase the strength of our DOTs (with DOTs making up ~30% of our damage, in the sims I've run, using T17N profile.) My concern comes with Balance of Power, where you get maximum Eclipse Bonus on your first set of DOTs. It's very easy to maintain your original DOTs too. Given a trinket procs Mastery, this will definitely inflate Balance of Power's strength.

But BOP isn't my concern, it's our DOTs snapshotting Mastery procs. I know I've brought it up in the past via twitter, but have you given it more thought on possible solutions? Or are you okay with Mastery procs existing as they currently are (allow the snapshot)?

(Given a Mastery proc trinket exists, I will need to include it in the action list for simcraft, as it does change a few things -- given it does snapshot)


Currently, Eclipse (including Mastery) is effectively snapshotted for Balance. We're considering making it snapshot your Balance Energy, and then dynamically translating that to an Eclipse multiplier on the fly, so that Mastery isn't snapshotted. However, we don't think that that has a particularly large impact in the general case. It very well may with Balance of Power, however. Let me know if you have any calculations on how much that will matter.

Druid (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
Does the partial tick of a Moonfire/Sunfire DoT have the same chance to trigger Shooting Stars like a "full" tick?
If it comes an issue, we'll make it have a partial proc chance as well. (Celestalon)

Mage (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
Please explain why devs are so adamant on keeping flameglow. No mage ever uses it now, how will it be any different in wod? cont
Flameglow's unpopularity is a result of it being undertuned. We think an increase to its effectiveness will solve it. (Celestalon)

Shaman (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
wondering why ElementalShields (besides ES) and WeaponEnchantmentSpells are not becoming passive for Shaman in WoD. Pruning?
Weapon Imbues are becoming passives. (Celestalon)

Character / Items
One question. The Dev Article doesn't mention gems and sockets and "Warforged" gear. Is all of that staying bonus?
Yes, bonus sockets and Warforged are unchanged from their prior announced status. (WatcherDev)

There once was a time (most of Classic, some TBC) when no one worried about BiS and just went after upgrades.
To be fair, they were often one and the same. You might only have a single item in the game for your class in a slot. (WatcherDev)

This will not support the World First race in anyway, it's actually destroying it. RNG with loot and you win.
It averages out. The more subtle variation, the more even it ends up. Weapon/trinket drop RNG is a much bigger deal. (WatcherDev)

Is BiS still reasonably achievable in a raid tier with the new system?
Every item with your preferred stats, Warforged and socketed with the tertiary of your choice? Zero people will have that. (WatcherDev)

Warlords stat changes are going to require a pretty big mentality shift as far as BiS gear. The question is whether or not it'll be fun.
IMO the concept of BiS mostly means every other piece that ISN'T BiS feels worse. It's not a net positive effect. (WatcherDev)
People focus a lot on BiS also because it's achievable. When it's not achievable (i.e. D3), each upgrade is more rewarding.
Not just more rewarding, but more frequent. Players will more commonly have the experience of looting and equipping new items. (WatcherDev)

You say that as if BiS is going away. It's just a lot harder to attain now.
There is a spectrum of better and worse. And you'll chase upgrades. (WatcherDev)

true, all the work that has to go into temp upgrades makes them seem not worth the trouble
Right. Most pieces will now be pick-up-and-wear, on the spot. No trip to town, no gold sink. (WatcherDev)

So then the fun question is: how many CQP gear options will we get? Ringmail/Linked/Mail still
Well set bonuses change per spec (even on pure dps classes). Variety will be secondary stats (holinka)
So with that, hunters will have different set bonuses for BM, Marks, and Surv?
Where it makes sense yes (holinka)
it isn't a goal to ensure every spec has a different set bonuses. (holinka)
just that a design constraint is gone now that we can change it per spec. (holinka)

5 Hours of Goblins, Blue Posts, Artisan Spotlight: Malthael by Kookabura

This Week's Decks, News, and Videos; Top 5 Plays of the Week

Skin Spotlight: Wrath Sonya

Warlords of Draenor - New Mage Spells
We are starting off our look at new spell effects with the new Mage spells. This includes Comet Storm, Ice Nova, Arcane Orb, Supernova, Meteor, Evanesce, Amplify Magic, and Prismatic Crystal.

Update (5:15 PM EST): Celestalon shared a few notes about the mage visuals - Meteor still missing a warning visual, Evanesce has a newer visual, and Prismatic Crystal is missing its damage pulse visual. Additionally, allies see much much more subdued versions (less visual clutter).



Warlords of Draenor - Orc Clan Armor Sets
Today we are taking a look at another of the Orc Clan armor sets, the Thunderlord and Frostwolf Clans. These sets are currently not available to players.

We decided to go with trying Instant Starsurges. (Celestalon)

Will Moonkin be able to show their armor or are we destined to always be owl beast models from duskwood no matter the gear?
Did you miss Glyph of Stars? (Celestalon)

Sine-wave is very forgiving to timing. The bonus damage is minute due to it. And it's very, very easy to learn&master.
FYI, based on testing, we're going to try a 40sec long cycle (still 20sec with Euphoria). DoT base duration raised to 20sec too. (Celestalon)
It also pauses at the ends now (most of the added time).Nerdy details: Now a sine wave between -110 and 110, capped at -100/100 (Celestalon)
This change makes it less stressful, not really less skillful. Skill is still strong. (Celestalon)
Starsurge and Astral Communion usage are the biggest high end skill differentiators now. (Celestalon)
DoT uptime and Wrath/Starfire are solid core mechanics to master. (Celestalon)

Hunter (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
Would u consider cutting two seconds off freezing trap and scatter so they can coexist in WoD? Scatter is ideal for landing traps.
We'll see how the change works out in testing. There is a benefit of getting rid of an instant CC button. (holinka)

Paladin (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
will the base damage increase to tanks be enough to make leveling as prot viable?
Absolutely. (Celestalon)

Priest (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
Doesn't that mean in effect, that Devouring Plague still technically snapshots?
Yes, for [6/Haste] sec. Little snapshots like that are fine. (Celestalon)

Character / Items
Hey, Will we ever see new weapons with cool 'equip' or 'chance on hit' effects like the ones from DS?
Potentially. We try to mix it up. Some tiers we go a little more crazy with trinkets, sometimes weapons, etc. (Celestalon)

not sure what the state of tier bonuses is in WOD, but will Mythic tier have the same bonuses as Normal/Heroic tier?
Yes. (Celestalon)

Achievements
Herald of the Titans achieve/title still going to be available in WoD?
Should be, yes. (WatcherDev)

PvP
Will garrisons have any PvP aspects/benefits/gameplay involved? Thanks!
still discussing (holinka)

Wtf Heart of the Valorous? How about Honorable Heart or Hear of the Conqueror for a bit? (C'mon you knew it was coming)
Valor and Conquest serve very different purposes. Valor doesn't give you gear. Conquest does. (holinka)
There are already tremendous catch-up mechanics in place for PvP: rating inflation and catch-up cap. (holinka)

One of the issue's with Ret in PvP atm is that Templar's Verdict is too weak as a finisher. Outside of major cd's Ret is no threat.
"Outside of cooldowns I'm not threat" is a complaint we here from every spec with cooldowns. It's why we're removing many of them. (holinka)

Just wondering if you guys have put any thought into scaling gear up in pvp (bgs) before WoD?
No there is tech involved to do this that's coming in Warlords. (holinka)

Will PvP set bonuses change as we change spec in WoD?
yes (holinka)

is chaos bolt damage reduced by 25% against player?
Yes it's damage is reduced against players in Mists. Possibly not in Warlords. (holinka)
In WOD pvp crit reduction means CB does 25% less against players anyway, doesn't it?
yes (holinka)
Dont you think crit and other stats should be downscaled in PVE too? To have the same rules for PVE and PVP?
Crits are awesome so you can say "woah HUGE number" but gameplay dictates different magnitudes in two modes (holinka)

could we see some news on Ashran soon? Would love to see some more in-depth discussion about the "Ashran Only" weapons.
We're getting to a point where we think we'll have a lot more to share soon. But we're early on in that process. (holinka)

Garrisons
Out of curiosity, will our friends in the farm become followers in our garrison?
The Panda farm? They don't... really want to go through that portal. Best to stay near a brewery. (Muffinus)

Fan Art - Warlords of Draenor Login Screen
Some more nice fan art of the Dark Portal was recently posted. Keep in mind that this is fan art, not the actual login screen.

Warlords of Draenor Alpha Invites

It's worth keeping in mind that test invites overall will be limited, especially in comparison to Mists of Pandaria, where the vast majority of invites were based on the Annual Pass benefits.

Happy Friday! I thought it'd be nice to throw answers at all of these. The focus of your WoW gaming (judging by the questions at least) seems to be really focused on "completionist" activities, which is awesome, but of course the majority of our efforts are going to be focused on making Warlords at the moment, and releasing the expansion, so some answers are just going to be "no plans", hopefully that makes good logical sense for where we're spending our time. Anyway, here we go.

Are there any plans to make the BoP profession patterns from BT/Hyjal/Sunwell/Ulduar/etc BoE?
No current plans.

Are there any plans to remove the class requirements for Sunwell engineering patterns?
No current plans.

Are there any plans to revisit Been Waiting a Long Time for This (25 player) and (10 player) to make them more doable like you did with Sinestra?
No plan to do so – it’s still quite doable with the new dispel system and a couple of players. Sinestra’s actual mechanics were changed because the fight demanded spam-dispelling in some cases.

Are there any plans to create a mount and/or pet preview window by shift clicking?
It’s a cool idea, and something we’d like to do at some point. Pretty sure there are some addons that do this right now, though.

Are there any plans to display missing mounts/pets (greyed out) in the mounts/pet tabs?
Yes! This is possible in Warlords, including brief instruction on where they can be found.

Are there any plans to give the Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker feat of strength for Thunderfury's created on characters that can't equip it now that achievements are account-wide?
The FoS is to be a “wielder” and does require equipping it. No plans to change that.

Are there any plans to create reputation achievements for serious reputation grinders? The possible exalted reputation count has far exceeded the associated reputation achievements for some time, making it somewhat unrewarding to receive these achievements the day they are released. Currently sitting at 75 exalted and the last achievement was for 60, which was achievable before MoP.
We’ll probably update Rep achievements again in Warlords.

Are there any plans to increase the cap on amount of battle-tag friends?
It's something our Battle.net team is working on. Due to the complexity of each separate Blizzard game on Battle.net needing to adopt the same increase, as well as other technical requirements I don’t myself understand, it's not a simple change.

Are there any plans to convert the hearthstone into a spell so it doesn't take up a bag slot? It's been doing so since 2004, I'm about to start charging it rent.
Turning items into clickable spells can be great, but it can also decrease the sense that you're actually interacting with tangible objects within the world, and instead are a person at a computer clicking on buttons. We don't want to reduce everything about existing in this virtual world to a binary button or mechanic. It’s an iconic part of the game, and it’s really just a single slot out of many slots.

Are there any plans to prune the currency tab? It is getting convoluted again.
Potentially. In the meantime there is the ability to set a currency as inactive through the UI, which helps keep some from being front and center.

Are there any plans to add Domination Point Commisions to the currency tab?
No, they're gained and spent quickly, and aren't intended to be an ongoing currency. Would recommend either spending them now or deleting what you have, they're not likely to see any more or less use in the future. If you ever want to get more in the future they’re pretty quick to farm up.

Are there any plans to handle archaeology artifacts in the same way as fragments? My bag space is precious.
This falls in line with the answer for the hearthstone question above. Hopefully we can free up a lot of that bag space for you though in Warlords.

Are there any plans to implement a search function for achievements?
It's something we want to add, but it's not currently scheduled. Wish list item at the moment. We want to make some larger Achievement UI changes, and this could be a part of that. But again, it’s not something we’re actively working on for this expansion.

Are there any plans to make older Jewelcrafting recipes (Wrath/Cata) more obtainable? Those dailies are painful.
Not at the moment. They're not required, and so are really only a test of will for those that want to be completionists. And that's probably ok.

Are there any plans to add Classic, Burning Crusade, and/or Wrath raids to the Dungeon Journal?
It's still on our to-do list. We continue to make some progress here and there as we go, but obviously a large majority of our effort goes toward upcoming content so it’s just finding the time to do all the nice-to-haves.

Are there any plans to allow me to have more than 25 quests?
We are making some changes to the quest log, but they don't generally include a higher limit. For most people, having a large list of tasks--usually around 15-20--can start to feel overwhelming, and for a lot of those people being overwhelmed is a deterrent to playing at all. With Cataclysm, and certainly with newer zones in Mists and Warlords, it's very rare you'll have that many quests at any one time. The quest limit is generally only an issue for those looking to go back and do older content where they vacuum an entire zone, or for those times when leveling when you're outpacing the content and should probably drop quests and move on instead of keeping a bunch of grey ones. That's a separate problem though, and not best solved by increasing the amount of XP-less grey quests you can hold on to. Anyway, no, we know some people would like to be able to store a ton of quests, but it would be a big issue for a lot of players if they ever accidentally got to that point.

Are there any plans to completely remove deprecated quests? I have an alt with a Cataclysm opening quest completed but the quest turn-in NPC is no longer available.
We do have passes that will remove quests from people's logs, but sometimes those things slip through the cracks (especially with the radical Cataclsym changes) as we update content. What’s the name of the quest? I can see about getting it bugged.

nothing really tangible about a Hearthstone at that point, except for the fact that it takes up that bag slot.
That's kind of as tangible as things can get for a lootable object, so we're going to hang onto it. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Racials, like any alpha change, should not be taken as final at this point. Anything is subject to change. (holinka)
sorry it you get asked a lot, but I miss my Hordies <3 they just don't feel as strong compared with that double trinket.
This is always highly debated. Many top players value the Horde Racials more in the absence of super powerful PvE trinkets. (holinka)

Classes
...be designed to put tanks in jeopardy without forsaking the new methodical, efficiency based healing philosophy?
Tanks will provide less of the healing they need to survive. (Celestalon)
Meaning Resolve won't provide as much healing power as Vengeance does? Or tanks won't have the abilities to do so?
The abilities just aren't tuned as strong. Tanks in Mists could survive with no external healing too well. (Celestalon)
I hope incoming damage is still tuned high. Part of the fun of tanking is being in real danger of dying.
We 100% agree. (Celestalon)

Druid (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
Shred now has a 50% increased critical strike chance when used from stealth against targets over 80% health.(and rogues ambush?)
No, that was just adding in part of what Ravage did. (Celestalon)

Considered adding starsurge to balance of power? On low haste, you’d need to skip ss, to extend for a full cycle.
No, it should already be more than enough to maintain on a single target. (Celestalon)
You get 5 SF, 7.5 wrath in a 30s cycle, for a 30 sec ext. on both dots. Add in ss, and one of them drops off 4-6 sec to early
Nobody has 0 haste though. And there's 32sec of slack involved (on Moonfire, 16sec on Sunfire). (Celestalon)

so just to confirm, starfall hits all in-combat targets every 1 sec for 10 secs?
We're going to try removing the combat check, since Guided Stars is available. But yes, all of them, every 1s for 10s. (Celestalon)
that. is. AWESOME!! It'll totally be scary when trying not to over-pull, but this is bringing it back to W3 and Wrath days.
Aye. The feeling of hitting Starfall and running around a cave, pulling *everything* is something we want to recapture. (Celestalon)

what is the purpose behind buffing HT when boomies self-cast?
That's part of a widespread reduction to downtime between pulls for many specs. (Celestalon)
so with all these changes, are you trying to make me fall in love w/ my boomie again? Cause its working
I admit it. Yes. (Celestalon)

DOT snapshots are gone in WoD, right? So a Moonfire cast at 1% Lunar will hit harder with successive ticks as Eclipse grows?
No... DoT snapshotting in general is gone, but Eclipse specifically is snapshotted (which is why it's worded that way). (Celestalon)
Is Eclipse going to be the only exception to the no-snapshotting rule, or are you considering others, like Soulburn: Haunt?
Nah, there are specific cases throughout; most specs who had some form of important snapshotting before have ~1 thing now. (Celestalon)

is +150% mana regen bundled into moonkin/starform going to be equivalent to live's Eclipse mana boost?
It'll be enough to maintain the DPS rotation. (Celestalon)
hurricane mana cost nerf was good. but still no idea why astral storm must have 50k mana cost. why cant i spam aoe...
They have the same (lower) mana cost in 6.0. (Celestalon)

Perhaps I'm being a pessimist, but the new Balance mechanics seem like they'll hinder our movement in a big way in PvP.
We're gunna try making Starsurge always instant. (Celestalon)

Hunter (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
what is intent behind 'heal on kill' buff for hunters?
We added some self-sustainability like that to several classes who were lacking in that department, lately. (Celestalon)

is a mobile stable for hunters possibly on the cards? 5 pet limit seems arbitrary and doesn't add any value.
Hmmm... that sounds like a potentially really fun hunter epic quest. Probably not for 6.0, love the idea though. (Muffinus)

Hook wasps now wasps due to similarity. Rylaks now tamable. New pet class? If so, can't you apply same logic and add to chimeras?
It's got ground anims, and in practice doesn't look at all like a Chim, hence the new family. (Muffinus)

Another quick question: is Focusing Shot damage supposed to be increased by the Draenor perk (Improved Steady/Cobra Shot)?
Yes, though you always have the relevant perk when you can get Focusing Shot, so it doesn't really matter; tuned as such. (Celestalon)

Mage (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
What about Incanter's Flow with Mage Bombs, though?
That one, no. The rotational procs are the intended thing to use during Incanter's Flow peaks. (Celestalon)

Monk (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
Hello! For Monks. What will determine the "frontal cone" of the statue w/ Breath of the Serpent since it rotates?
It faces toward you. (Celestalon)

Paladin (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
So will only 3 stack ef's proc IH?
No, all will. It just isn't worth doing 1HoPo EF blanketing for Mastery anymore. (Celestalon)

Is the duration reduction on EF poor datamining or intended?
It's a change, not a reduction. Heals for 3*X per tick for HoPo*10sec, instead of HoPo*X per tick for 30sec. Same result. (Celestalon)
Except 1HoPo EFs don't last 30sec, so we can afford to let it trigger Mastery again. (Celestalon)
Sweet!
Might be too strong, we'll see. We think it's worth a try. (Celestalon)
so 2 HoPo EF's and 3 HoPo EF's won't trigger IH? Or am I missunderstanding?
Misunderstanding. (Celestalon)
lol so vague, so all EF's will trigger IH? Even though the duration of 2HoPo and 3HoPo EF is 20/30 seconds?
It all will trigger IH. (Celestalon)
The idea is to make it a significant resource cost to keep shields refreshed for 30s rather than a trivial one, yes?
Yes. (Celestalon)

Warlords of Draenor Alpha - Garrison Dance Hat
One of the fun things to do in your garrison that was mentioned was forming a conga line with NPCs. You can do this with the Dance Hat purchased from Guh. The music in this video is not the in game music, just filler for the silence.
