Patch 6.2 - Legendary Ring Proc Visuals
The legendary version of the ring comes with some nice visuals. Keep in mind that no one has the ring yet, so this is a best guess preview and isn't guaranteed to be what actually appears!

Turn in 12 -> get achievement -> loot chest again, defending your title. (WarcraftDevs)

PvE
Mythic dungeons; loot lockout or dungeon?
Loot lockout. You can go back to help your friends if you want to. (WarcraftDevs)

With Timewalking Dungeons, how will the gear drops behave? Scale up as a character levels if not max or be lvl100 afterward?
The item’s level is matched to your player level when it drops, and it does not update after that. (WarcraftDevs)

PvP
I don't know if you've ever done arenas but my guess would be that you haven't. You have to experience it to understand
Ashran is meant to be a very different experience than arenas. It is expected some will prefer one over the other. (holinka)

Once everyone has there conquest gear what will keep them in ashran? alts....?
This is a problem of any progression system, not Ashran specific. What will we do once we're done? (holinka)

Perhaps, but I think to the majority of the player base Ashran is not fun. Every top Reddit thread is negative
We've made some changes we hope will improve the experience in 6.2. (holinka)

Professions
If you have Nat Pagle does having bait or high fishing skill (900vs1100+) have any effect on chance to catch lunkers?
High fishing skill will increase your chance to catch lunkers; bait will not. (WarcraftDevs)

Computers - Setup of the Month
Each month or so we will post a couple of hardware setups for those of you who are thinking of upgrading their computer!

This month
The current SSD prices are fairly flat right now, with most SSDs under $0.50 per gigabyte when on sale.

New GPUs from AMD are here, but they aren't huge improvements over the previous generation.

Depending on how much you want to overclock, you may need to spend a bit more for a better CPU cooler like the NH-D14.

Unless you are doing a lot of video rendering or streaming, you do not need the 4790K and should spend that money elsewhere.

Make sure to keep your AMD and Nvidia drivers up to date.

Don't forget to visit the Computer Forum for any extra questions!

    Awful spell visuals on the legendary rings, especially given we can't actually SEE the damn thing on our character. It's just a red, green and blue bubble with reused spell effects for the on-use effect. Amazing. :I

    So fishing level past max via bait/buffs doesn't actually affect anything? I've always wondered that.

    The current MasterPlan does suggest groups for naval missions, it's just not obvious. You have to click on the individual mission and hover over the LFG eye in the top right corner.

    Seeing this change to Master Plan made me so happy!

    Wow...those visuals are absolute garbage. Good job Blizzard.

    Oops. Either I had an older version or just missed it. Updated!

    Well that's the last video I'll be clicking on at MMO-Champion - having to watch a 2 1/2 minute commercial, with no option to skip, just to see the ring effects is ridiculous.

    I believe they mean the fish-specific baits. Lures, the ones that give extra fishing skill, should increase your chance of fishing up a lunker. Bait, the things that increase your chance or not getting Crescent Saberfish, doesn't

    I'm at 700 fishing, but I've been consistently fishing up lunkers and Felblight in Tanaan using just the main fishing ability. No pole, no lures.

    the ring animation is realy cool! especially the shield effect from healing one!
    Great job Blizzard!! Keep it up !!!

    People were expecting the visuals on the rings to be cool?


    Lol.
  1. Backjauer's Avatar
    I can absolutely guarantee that if the ring effects were flashier people would bitch about it being too flashy and intrusive.
  1. Alayea's Avatar
    Feel very mixed about the ring visual effects. Also when you said the video was about the ring visuals, I was expecting only that -- not the effects interspersed with a guide. Fast-forwarded through a lot of it.

    Ah, mastery and Versatility...my two worst stats and they are on the legendary. I really wish they had all the stats on the legendary because..it is a legendary. Instead I get mastery and Vers when Haste and multi are my best. To make matters worse it damages everything within 20 yards...now....how often are casters not at max range? This is the worst legendary they have ever come up with imo. Talk about lame. Lame stats with a lame proc. GG

    Not completely disagreeing with you, but the text says it strikes within 20 yards of the initiating player's position. So if you have a melee use the ring it should be fine. They probably intend for that.

    This latest DLC makes an excelent point, the entire Garrison system will have meant nothing until we can have an epic battleship on wheels following us around Draenor. NOTHING I say.

    Those legendary ring effects are as exciting as ME3 endings...
  1. gorkos's Avatar
    Cant... be.... bothered....

    I was all for getting my legendary ring untill the part where garrison missions came up. at which point i said fuck it i am not bothering with this shit.
  1. thilicen's Avatar
    To bad the whole garrison idea is completely wasted. A home base in Azeroth that you would expand on throughout expansions instead of a one-time base in a world you won't be returning to come the next expansion is just not motivating. CBA to do anything with my Garrison as I know I'll be leaving it behind soon enough.
  1. Mhyroth's Avatar
    So the only way to get your Legendary is behind a Garrison-ish command table and missions ? That's... interactive...

    Kinda surmised the 390x is in the computer setup. 290x outperforms it if you flash it with the 390x bios.
