Baa'l Secret Hunt Underway
The Secret Finding Discord is working their way through another secret!

General Information
  • The Warcraft Secrets guide has a handy script to keep track of your progress: /run local N,t={"SCROLL","1","2","3","4","5","6","7","8","9","10","11","12","FIN"},{52819,52809,52810,52818,52817,52816,52815,52814,52813,52812,53632,53633,53634,52827}for s,k in pairs(N)do d=IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(t[s])print(k,"=",d and "Y" or "N")end
  • A few locations are easier with a Goblin Glider, and one requires some sort of slow fall.

The Scroll
  • Head to Heart of Darkness in Nazmir. Start at the bridge at 46,54 that is in the Blood Troll area to get to the middle structure.
  • Once at the top of the Heart of Darkness, you need to carefully jump down the outside edge to click on the note at 51, 59.
  • If you are having trouble getting to the note, a Goblin Glider may be helpful.

Pebble One
  • Head to The Broken Shore, at 37.45, 71.63 and click on the light grey pebble on the table near Dark'thul.
  • You may need to talk to Dark'thul to turn him away from the table if he isn't sleeping nearby.

Pebble Two
  • Head to Boralus at 49, 40, walk through the net on the side of the dock and down into the cave. The pebble is in the center of the floor towards the back.

Pebble Three
  • Head to Atal'dazar, Zuldazar
  • From the flight path, take the road up towards the dungeon portal. Take a right to the road that goes up the mountain right before the portal.
  • Follow this road north until you see a large flat stone surface and the waterfall. Go through the small arch on the right towards the waterfall.
  • Continue along the path behind the waterfall, then across the rocks on the waterfall, down to a corner of the temple structure and grass. Repeatedly jump up that way, go forward and then up the side of the mountain.
  • Use a glider or some slow fall to head down into the valley and the cave at the bottom.
  • The pebble is located at the to the left of the large stone column right after entering, behind the tree branch.

Pebble Four
  • Head to Drustvar, up the path towards Arom's Strand, then jump down to the second tier of the waterfall, head into the cave, and click the right eye of the effigy in the back. The cave mouth is at 35, 55.

Pebble Five
  • Head to 63, 21 in Vol'dun (Tortaka Refuge) and drop down into the hidden cave. Be sure to avoid the NPC in the cave, as he will one shot you. The pebble is behind some rocks near the wall far away from the NPC, near the entrance.

Pebble Six
  • Head to 66.93, 14.84 in Stormsong Valley and enter the cave hidden in the bushes. The pebble is inside the cave at 68, 13.

Pebble Seven

Pebble Eight
  • Head back to 37,80 in Boralus to enter the maze. Go straight back and around the corner to the basement. Kill the five NPCs downstairs and get the pebble by the boxes and keg.

Pebble Nine
  • Go to 18, 7 in Drustvar to take the path to a cave. The pebble is on the top of the large rock outside.

Pebble Ten
  • Head to 75, 70 in Tirigarde Sound with some invisibility potions. Enter the cave, use the potion, and get the pebble. The screenshot below is facing into the cave, so walk in and look behind some rocks halfway back to the left.

Pebble Eleven
  • Head to 80, 19 in Tirigarde Sound and look for the waterfall. You'll need to head up and then jump down on to some rocks to access the cave behind the waterfall.

Pebble Twelve
  • Head to 10, 82 in Tirigarde Sound, enter the hidden cave, head to the rocks on the right, and move your camera around until you can see the pebble.

Pebble Thirteen
  • Head to 63, 21 in Vol'dun (Tortaka Refuge) with water walking potions or a Water Strider then set a waypoint for Zandalar 45.78 -3.34.
  • Once there, head to Zandalar 55.72 -10.21 and into the underwater cave. There will be blips of fatigue along the way.
  • The pebble is close to the cave entrance near some rocks on the right when facing the entrance from the inside.

Baa’l and Uuna
  • Head to 62, 22 in Frostfire Ridge and defeat Baa'l after weakening him.
  • You either need to have Uuna or someone with an upgraded Uuna needs to have the summon active nearby to weaken Baa'l.
  • Baa'l can get into a bugged state where Unna won't be able to weaken him. Gastropod Shell will reset him and fix this.
  • This rewards Baa'ls Darksign
  • After being summoned Baa'l provides another hint.

Upcoming Feral Druid Tuning

Specifically, we're adjusting Feral performance relative to other specs in dungeons and questing. Please know: we've been reading all of the incoming feedback and keeping a close eye on player results in-game.

Thank you for all of this feedback. Much of it has been very useful in determining the substance of this adjustment.

This is something that we're testing carefully, and probably won't be finished and available to put into the live game until later this week. I'll let you know as soon as we have final numbers, and I'll post about it a final time when it goes live.

World Boss Quest Bug
The world quest A Chilling Encounter spawned today but this is a bug. The boss is not actually spawning. World bosses will still not be available until September 4th.

Hey guys! Just confirming that yes this is a bug and we're working on fixing it so it should no longer incorrectly be displaying just yet.

Sorry for all of the confusion this morning!

Island Expeditions for Week of August 21
The islands expeditions for the week are Verdant Wilds, Whispering Reef and Rotting Mire!

Call to Arms: Stormsong Valley
This week's Call to Arms is Call to Arms: Stormsong Valley or Call to Arms: Stormsong Valley. Head to Stormsong Valley with warmode enabled to kill 10 players of the opposing faction and loot an air supply. This will reward you with 250 honor and 75 reputation for either 7th Legion or The Honorbound.

No Artifact Knowledge Yet
Much like in Legion, the amount of artifact power needed for your Heart of Azeroth will begin to decrease week by week. This has not started yet, however, and can be expected soon in the future.

PvP Brawl - Gravity Lapse

Every other week, a new PvP Brawl will be available to players looking for something just a little different. Each Brawl will offer a variety of modes, rules, and scenic changes to the usual Battleground gameplay, and you’ll find them in the Group Finder tool (hotkey “I”) in the Player vs. Player tab. Just like Random Battlegrounds, you’ll receive a reward for achieving victory. Here are just a few of the Brawls you can look forward to:

Gravity Lapse

Gravity getting you down? Step into the Eye of the Storm and be prepared for a whole new en-lighten-ing experience. Every minute, players on the battlefield will find themselves launched into the air, only to gently fall toward the ground again in a perpetual aerial ballet as they try to accrue enough resources to take the win home for their team.

340 Blightreaper 162.5 dps
345 Honorbound Pigsticker 82.1 dps
Both agility.

I can confirm that it is something that is under investigation at the moment. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Auction House Lag
We are aware that some realms are seeing issues with slowness when using the Auction House and are currently investigating making some changes to help alleviate these issues. We’ll update as soon as we have more information to share. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
