Patch 9.2 PTR - Main Campaign Chapter 3
Today we are taking a look at chapter 3 of the main campaign in Patch 9.2. Keep in mind all of this is subject to change before release! *Spoilers Ahead*

Chapter 3 - Forming an Understanding
  • The chapter starts off with Pelagos suggesting that we turn our attention to the devourers causing trouble in the east. Kleia decides to stay in Haven and watch over things while you assist him.
  • You investigate a bunker called the Cradle of Nascence, discovering something crying for help from the other side.
  • You find an Oracle channeling on the other side, and attempt to understand her. She needs protection from the devourers, which you provide. After dealing with a harvester, she tells you to help restore the Shadowlands by seeking knowledge, but collapses before she can finish her thought. Pelagos suggests you bring her back to Haven.
  • Back in Haven, the elders berate Pelagos for meddling with the Oracle, to which he explains that she asked for their help. They don't believe an oracle would ever gift her words to his kind, and Pelagos asks you to back him up.
  • Pelagos suggests that we seek out Firim since the elders won't help, and asks them where he is. They refuse to speak about him, and you are forced to search the area for clues about where he could have gone. You find a letter from an enlightened named Xevveth who says Firim has been seen west of the Forge of Afterlives.
  • On the way to the location, you find an assassin has killed Xevveth in the middle of the road. It flees before you can apprehend it, and find a map to Firim on the corpse left behind.
  • You approach a cave with the same magic used to protect Haven, and enter to find Firim working amongst some automa. His defenses stop you and he comes to investigate, thinking he captured more assassins. He recognizes you, and Pelagos says we need his help. He scoffs that you lead the assassins right to his hideout, and he should be the one that is helped, but lets you in none the less.
  • Firim does not believe an Orarcle would communicate with you, and Pelagos goes to retrieve her while you go outside and reset some traps while dealing with assassins.
  • When you finish, Pelagos has brought the Orarcle to Firim and explains how she got in this condition. Pelagos states that she mentioned a core before collapsing, and Firim says it might be the one they found earlier. An unimplemented scene has him toy with the core, awakening the oracle for a brief moment and turning the core into a small round automa.
  • This automa runs to a nearby cypher console and begins to jump up and down. Firim says he has never managed to get it working, but you are able to start it up. The automa rushes off again, and Firim thinks it might be trying the same on the other consoles around Zereith Mortis. He marks them on your map and tells you to examine them, with him there to accompany you of course. Pelagos stays behind to watch the Oracle.
  • What follows is you chasing the automa to 3 different consoles before it leading you to a cave. You must help save it from a wolf construct before discovering a dormant echoism, which may be the key to helping understand the automa.
  • Back in Firim's cave, the automa leads you back to the console and you unlock the first part of communicating with them, translating his bleeps into his name, Pocopoc. You also gain the ability to summon him in Zereth Mortis to assist you, as well as unlocking some daily and world quests in the area.
  • You then return to Haven to inform Bolvar on your findings.

    This is worse than the average lvling zone questline.

    More time-gating crap and even more "systems" added to Shittylands. Ugh. 9.2 so far does nothing to excite me or draw me back into WoW. I unsubbed this Summer, and don't look to be coming back until the new expansion, whenever that is? A year from now?

    I hope 10.0 and the next expansion, is a clean slate, everything wiped away and a fresh start. No more "borrowed systems" and no time-gating.

    Pocopoc? Is this aimed at 6 year olds now?

    We are invading the cradle of reality itself, why is the story so goddamn pedestrian? A three part escort quest, to some computer terminals in a cave, and protecting our baby robot from a wolf? The fuck?? Why are the stakes so low, and all of reality is supposed to be hanging in the balance?

    the idea people are coming here, reading a horrible summery of a questline, and looking at jpegs and going "this fucking sucks" is... so depressing. I miss when we didnt share ptr/beta like this...

    because this is a tiny part of it my dude, did you really think the second we entered zereth mortis we would be fighting the gods?

    Remember in argus when we invaded the legions homeworld and we... did a three part quest to collect marmets and talbuk?
    the world of azeroth is being consumed, the legion is bombarding the planet cracking it open, why are the stakes so low!?

    The cute things in Star Wars were specifically included to sell toys, that's been confirmed countless times.

    Yep, everything in Star Wars is dead serious and mature, for example JarJar.

    as someone who has done all that is available, there is some pretty epic moments. and funnily enough the mmochampion coverage skipped over some of them.

    I hope 10.0 and the next expansion, is a clean slate, everything wiped away and a fresh start. No more "borrowed systems" and no time-gating.

    literally every single expansion and almost every patch has had borrowed power systems, you weren't running around with your tier set bonuses for the entire expac, your talents shifted every expac, glyphs, new talent systems, new set bonuses and legendaries, etc. etc.

    this whole "HOPE WE DONT HAVE MORE BORROWED POWER" is just you verifying that you have never actually played the game or you're just really bad at it, im sorry that mild changes to your class every 8 months is so fucking complicated for you
