WoW Remix Developer Update - May 29
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
Hello Timerunners!

As we approach the end of the second week of WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria, we’d like to take a moment to talk about some very recent updates we’ve made and look forward to the next 11+ weeks that the event will be available.

We’ve now made several changes to address some issues we’ve seen, especially around max level content such as heroic scenarios, heroic dungeons, and raids. Our goal here is to address the sudden increase in enemy power at level 70 for group content and make the transition to higher difficulty raids smoother for players.

  • Heroic Scenario, Heroic Dungeon, and Normal Raids increase in power more slowly between levels 60 and 70. When first reaching level 70, players will continue to be challenged by max-level content, but that increase in difficulty should now be noticeably lessened.
  • Heroic and Mythic raids have been adjusted so there is a smoother transition between them. Before these changes, there was a stark difference in the power of each raid. Now, players should experience a smoother transition that feels more like a natural progression instead of a huge step.

Even with recent hotfixes in place, there is still a significant increase in difficulty for Heroic Throne of Thunder, Heroic Siege of Orgrimmar, and Mythic Siege of Orgrimmar. WoW Remix is designed to provide players who wish to take on the toughest challenges with the means to do so, by upgrading their gear and collecting additional threads.

Looking forward, we want you to know that we do not plan to change the Bronze cost of upgrading gear. We’ve already seen many players make the decision to upgrade items so that they can comfortably take on Heroic raids (and hopefully earn the large amounts of Bronze available from them). The gains in power that come with increasing your item levels are exponential, not linear, and we don’t want anyone to second-guess their decision to become much more powerful.

For players who primarily wish to gather Bronze and acquire some of the cosmetic rewards available in Remix, many options have emerged. We’re seeing some players level up multiple alts for the 40,000 Bronze available from quests at levels 50, 60, and 70, while other players mainly focus on earning Bronze with multiple level-70 characters doing queued content and repeatable daily quests and activities.

We’ll outline all of our recent Remix hotfixes in our hotfixes update post, and we’ll continue to read all of your feedback. It’s been a lot of fun to go on this journey with you.

Thank you very much!

      • Wounded Quarry now always procs bonus damage while Reaver’s Mark is on your target. Soul fragment generation is still a chance.
      • Reaver’s Mark duration increased to 20 seconds.
      • Art of the Glaive activation thresholds doubled.
      • Intent Pursuit cooldown reduction increased to 4 seconds.

    • Druid Of The Claw
      • Ravage and Dreadful Wound damage increased by 10%.
      • Dreadful Wound now reduces damage dealt to you by 4% for Feral and 10% for Guardian.
      • Feral’s Aggravate Wounds now triggers from any ability that costs Energy.
      • Empowered Shapeshifting increases the damage of Mangle by 10% (was 5%) and the damage of Swipe and Shred by 3% (was 5%).
      • Strike for the Heart now increases ability critical strike chance and critical strike damage by 6% (was 8%).
      • Strike for the Heart now causes Mangle to heal Guardian Druids for 1% of their maximum health.
      • Feral’s Wildpower Surge now increases damage of your next Swipe by 50% (was 100%) or your next Mangle by 200% (was 100%).
      • Guardian’s Wildpower Surge now increases the damage of your next Ferocious Bite or Rip by 100% (was 50%).
      • Wildshape Mastery’s retention of Bear Form stats in Cat Form also retains Bear Form’s resistance to being critically struck or parried.
    • Feral
      • Primal Wrath range increased to 10 yards (was 8).
      • Added a connector between Primal Wrath and Pouncing Strikes in the talent tree.
      • Rampant Ferocity’s damage increased by up to 50% when the player spends extra Energy on Ferocious Bite.
      • Thrashing Claws now requires players to know Thrash in order to apply the bleed from Thrash.
    • Restoration
      • Developer’s note: We are making some changes to raid healing cooldowns in The War Within to increase their effectiveness in content with less than 20 players. Our goal is to make these spells feel powerful in all forms of content, particularly smaller dungeon, PvP, or raid groups. The healing of these cooldowns will remain equal when healing 20 injured allies as they previously did and only take into account injured allies as contributing to their splash cap. This will be a slight reduction in effectiveness when healing more than 20 players, but this tradeoff has seemed reasonable to us as the availability and strength goes up as group sizes increase.
      • Tranquility initial healing increased by 400%.
      • Tranquility’s initial heal now decreases its healing beyond 5 targets.
      • Tranquility’s heal over time effect is no longer increased while out of a raid environment.
  • Evoker
    • Chronowarden
      • Time Convergence no longer grants Stamina when using a defensive cooldown longer than 45 seconds. It now also specifies that it only functions when casting “non-defensive abilities”.
    • Augmentation
      • New Passive: Sense Power – While enabled, allies with their major cooldown active will be highlighted in the game field and will display a buff icon on party and raid frames. Learned automatically. Can be toggled on/off.
      • Prescience has been updated – When cast without a friendly target, the smart-targeting will now prefer damage role players who have their major cooldowns active.
    • Devastation
      • Feed the Flames once again triggers a Firestorm after casting 10 Pyres. This is in addition to its new effect of increasing Pyre and Disintegrate damage while they are inside the Firestorm.
      • Snapfire can now trigger from both Living Flame and Pyre.
    • Preservation
      • Dream Flight healing increased by 100% outside of raid.
        • Developer’s note: We are making some changes to raid healing cooldowns in The War Within to increase their effectiveness in content with less than 20 players. Our goal is to make these spells feel powerful in all forms of content, particularly smaller dungeon, PvP, or raid groups. The healing of these cooldowns will remain equal when healing 20 injured allies as they previously did and only take into account injured allies as contributing to their splash cap. This will be a slight reduction in effectiveness when healing more than 20 players, but this tradeoff has seemed reasonable to us as the availability and strength goes up as group sizes increase. We’d also like to note that we are making an exception in the case of Dream Flight as we feel the healing increase outside of raid is a more appropriate tool for consistency as otherwise the falloff of its healing would make its effectiveness inconsistent in raid scenarios.
      • Mana cost of Emerald Blossom reduced by 15%.
      • Flow State can now trigger from Empower spells cast from Stasis.
      • Threads of Fate can no longer trigger from Empower spells cast from Stasis.
        • Developer’s note: There is inconsistency here, but it’s necessary to balance Threads of Fate between Augmentation and Preservation. Threads of Fate tooltip also indicates “casting an Empower spell” while Flow State does not use the keyword “casting.”
  • Hunter
    • Survival
      • Lunge no longer increases attack range by 3 yards.
  • Mage
    • Time Anomaly has been updated – Now grants Brain Freeze instead of Fingers of Frost for Frost Mages.

      • Gravity Lapse now hits 5 targets (was 3).
    • Spellslinger
      • Fixed an issue that prevented Frost and Arcane Splinters from interacting with damage bonuses and proc effects such as Touch of the Magi.
      • Arcane
        • Spellfrost Teachings has been redesigned – Direct damage from Splinters has a 3% chance to reset the cooldown of Arcane Orb/Frozen Orb and increase all damage dealt by your Arcane Orbs/Frozen Orbs by 50% for 10 seconds.
        • The location of Force of Will and Spellfrost Teachings has swapped.
        • Arcane Splinter damage reduced by 50%.
        • Embedded Arcane Splinter damage reduced by 50%.
        • Controlled Instincts cleave effect no longer damages the primary target.
        • Controlled Instinct Arcane Splinter cleave percentage reduced to 20% (was 30%).
        • Embedded Splinter duration increased to 18 seconds.
          • Developer’s note: Splinters were benefitting from Pandemic dot extensions unintentionally, which was extending their uptime to 20 seconds from the stated 16 seconds. This was creating adverse effects and durations when consuming Embedded Splinters or applying / maintaining the Embedded Splinter DoTs. To compensate for the uptime loss from this bug fix, we’re increasing the base duration of Embedded Splinters to 18 seconds.
    • Arcane
      • Leydrinker proc chance reduced to 10% (was 15%).
      • Arcane Surge is now guaranteed to generate Clearcasting.
        • Developer’s note: Arcane Surge was a reliable source of Clearcasting that Arcane Mages lost with the removal of mana-based Clearcasting procs. We’re making Arcane Surge proc Clearcasting baseline to ensure you’re rolling into your burns with some more Clearcasting availability.
      • Arcane Blast now has a 5% increased chance to generate Clearcasting.
        • Developer’s note: Clearcasting availability has marginally decreased in pure single target scenarios. We’re buffing up Arcane Blast’s chance to proc Clearcasting to compensate.
      • Spark of the Magi has been redesigned – Now makes your next Arcane Blast, Arcane Barrage, and Arcane Missiles echo for 25% extra damage (was increase the damage dealt by these spells).
        • Developer’s note: This updated behavior will allow you to properly benefit from the Spark of the Magi damage bonus on an Arcane Barrage you fired before Touch of the Magi is applied.
      • Mastery: Savant now properly increases the damage dealt by Arcane Surge.
      • Aether Attunement has been redesigned – Every 3 times you consume Clearcasting, you gain Aether Attunement.
      • Aether Attunement primary target damage increase reduced to 100% (was 150%).
      • Aether Attunement secondary target damage increase reduced to 50% (was 100%).
        • Developer’s note: While we’re still committed to maintaining minimal buff-tracking for Arcane, we’re also being sensitive to the desire for Arcane Mages to be able to reliably acquire and hold effects for use in their burst windows and AOE moments-- both of which Aether Attunement excels at. We feel this new design strikes a nice balance that makes the effect easier to track, reliable, and at a higher frequency to help add more moments of excitement for Arcane in AOE.
      • Resonance and Arcing Cleave have swapped locations.
    • Fire
      • New Talent: Charring Embers – Phoenix Flames applies Charring Embers to all enemies it damages, increasing their damage taken from you by 5% for 12 seconds.
      • Charring Embers moved to Gate 2.
      • Charring Embers now increases the damage you deal to affected targets by 4% (was 6%).
      • Charring Embers has been removed.
        • Developer’s note: We’ve been listening to the feedback regarding Charring Embers and the tracking / gameplay behind it and have opted to remove it. We’re interested in preserving the gameplay of the new Phoenix Reborn and From the Ashes, but we feel that they can comfortably exist without Charring Embers.
      • Call of the Sun King no longer grants 15% increased Phoenix Flames damage and instead makes Phoenix Flames always critically strike.
      • Alexstrasza’s Fury no longer makes Phoenix Flames always critically strike.
      • From the Ashes now grants 15% increased Phoenix Flames damage.
      • From the Ashes is now in Gate 3.
      • Surging Blaze has returned to Gate 1.
      • Firestarter’s position has changed.
      • Phoenix Reborn now requires 25 hits (was 20).
      • Wildfire has returned and is now in Gate 2.
      • Ashen Feather is now in Gate 2 on a choice node with Alexstrazsa’s Fury.
      • Inflame is now located in Gate 2.
      • New Talent: Burning Blood – Damage dealt to targets below 30% health is increased by 10%.
        • This talent is not yet implemented.
      • New Talent: Heat Shimmer – Damage from Ignite has a 5% chance to make your next Scorch deal 25% increased damage and deal damage as though your target was below 30% health.
        • This talent is not yet implemented.
      • New Talent: Sparking Cinders – Living Bomb explosions have a 15% chance to increase the damage of your next Flamestrike or Pyroblast.
      • Controlled Destruction increases damage taken from Ignite by 0.5%, stacking up to 50 times (was 1%, stacking up to 25 times).
  • Monk
    • Mistweaver

      • Revival healing increased by 400%.
      • Revival now decreases its healing beyond 5 targets.
      • New Talent: Lotus Infusion – Allies with Renewing Mist receive 15% more healing from you and Renewing Mist’s duration is increased by 2 seconds. Choice node with Chi Harmony.
        • Developer’s note: We’d like to offer a more passive option focused on AoE healing against Chi Harmony. Chi Harmony now restricting the movement of Renewing Mist for its duration has its pros and cons and we feel this addition opens up optionality a little more particularly in raid scenarios.
      • Invigorating Mist no longer counts full health allies among its splash cap, but its healing has been decreased.
    • Windwalker
      • Abilities affected by Ordered Elements, Dance of Chi-Ji, or Blackout Kick! now contribute to Drinking Horn Cover, Spiritual Focus, and Heart of the Jade Serpent as if their full Chi value was spent.
      • New Talent: Ferociousness – Critical Strike chance increased by 2%. This effect is increased by 100% while Xuen, the White Tiger is active.
      • Mark of the Crane is now learned baseline.
      • Crane Vortex now occupies Mark of the Crane’s previous location.

      • Infusion of Light now increases the healing of Holy Light (was grants Holy Power).
      • Inflorescence of the Sunwell now increases the additional healing from Infusion of Light for Holy Light (was grants Holy Power).
    • Retribution
      • Radiant Glory’s Wake of Ashes now grants 8/10 seconds of Avenging Wrath or Crusade (was 10/12 seconds).
      • Radiant Glory’s each Holy Power spent has a chance to grant you 4/5 seconds of Avenging Wrath or Crusade (was 5/6 seconds).

      • Premonition now only changes to the next spell in the sequence when Premonition is cast.
      • Prompt Deliverance has been removed and replaced with Save the Day.
      • Divine Feathers now also increases the movement speed bonus of Angelic Feather by 10%.
      • Perfect Vision is now a choice against Fatebender and reduced the cooldown of Premonition by 15 seconds (was 6 seconds).
      • Fatebender now increases the effects of Premonition by 30% and no longer has conditional requirements.
      • Narrowed Visions has been removed and replaced with Divine Providence.
      • Divine Providence is in Perfect Vision’s previous location.

      • Assured Safety now applies 2 stacks of Prayer of Mending (was 1) and applies a Power Word: Shield at 25% effectiveness (was 20%).

      • Holy
        • New Talent: Prophet’s Will – Your Flash Heal, Heal, and Holy Word: Serenity are 30% more effective when cast on yourself.
    • Discipline
      • Developer’s note: We would like Rapture to be a more satisfying cooldown that flows well with the rotation. With that goal in mind, we’re removing the time pressure aspect of the cooldown and increasing the impact of each Power Word: Shield, so that it can be used to triage damage in a more careful and interesting way.
      • Rapture increases the absorption of your next 3 Power Word: Shields by 80% (was increases by 40% and lasts 8 seconds).
      • Developer’s note: We are making some changes to raid healing cooldowns in The War Within to increase their effectiveness in content with less than 20 players. Our goal is to make these spells feel powerful in all forms of content, particularly smaller dungeon, PvP, or raid groups.

      • Luminous Barrier absorb amount increased by 400%.
      • Luminous Barrier now decreases its absorb amount beyond 5 targets.

The Burden of Unrelenting Justice Transmog Set includes 9 pieces: Head, Shoulder, Chest, Waist, Legs, Feet, Wrist, Hand, and Cloak.

With the release of the Seeds of Renewal content update, players who complete the twelve months will also receive two non-color-shifting sets representing the day and night version of the color-shifting transmog for a total of three sets retroactively. Players who earn the achievement after the launch of the Seeds of Renewal Content update will automatically receive all three sets for their collection.

You don’t need to earn the special reward twelve times consecutively to get the achievement and the transmog sets.



How it Works

Get Tender Every Month

At the first of each month, players with an active account in good standing will receive 500 Trader’s Tender automatically every month from a chest called the Collector’s Cache. If you don’t have active game time on your account or aren’t a subscriber at the start of a new month, don’t worry. Your Tender will be awarded on the first day of the month when you do have game time or an active subscription. This will be the same amount for everyone, regardless of how you pay for your game time.

The Traveler's Log

Complete monthly activities listed in the new Traveler’s Log. Each month features a rotating, themed set of activities. These activities provide the opportunity to earn up to 500 additional Trader’s Tender. There’s only a set amount of Tender you can earn each month through completing activities, so you won’t need to complete all the ones in the log each month. You’ll be able to pick and choose from a variety of fun in-game activities to easily earn Tender. Players can choose to earn by continuing to play the game as they already do, such as completing quests, competing in battlegrounds, participating in holiday activities, and even running Mythic+ dungeons. But you can also choose to take part in activities uniquely designed for the month.

Freeze an Item

Before the month comes to an end, if you haven’t purchased that one “must-have” item yet, don’t worry. You can “freeze” an item so you can purchase it later. When you freeze an item, it will stay available month over month until it is purchased or replaced.

If this month’s offerings didn’t have the items you wanted, you can hang on to your Trader’s Tender to spend later. It won’t go anywhere, and unspent Tender will continue to accumulate each month.
