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)

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)

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)

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!

    So then definitely no raid tier after this. The 795 upgrade drop from Archimonde, and his not a hint towards another raid tier.

    They're thinking a legendary item deserves the numbers to merit having the label.

There are ways around that being an issue, but they've decided repeating the same bit of progression repeatedly is preferable. Personally, I think regressing at any point is a bit daft in an RPG.

    Their system makes it so. Basically you pick stats, ilvl and item "rarity" and the system tells you what the numbers are. They can then tweak it to favor particular secondary stats or have a proc.
    You seem to know plenty of inside things. Maybe you can tell us, where the fuck is content outside of raids? Did Blizz raise the coffee break allowance from 5 minutes to 5 hours?

    Makes me wonder if, Archimonde on LFC will drop Crystallized Fel or if, Blizzard will make it exclusive to Normal+

    Those proc graphics aren't completely terrible. I mean sure, after the legendary cloak visuals, they're somewhat of a let down, but the ring slots aren't huge visual differences to your character, so the proc graphics shouldn't be overly exaggerated.
    If we're able to upgrade our legendary ring to 795, then yea, it seems like there won't be a tier after. Though maybe they just wanted to allow people to get a legendary faster, instead of the five chapters it took for the cloaks. I highly doubt WoD is going to be done with patch 6.2. All other expansions at least went to x.3, with BC and MoP having an x.4.

    On the other hand, and this is a dumb question, while I'm guessing Puppy is obviously the lowest spec and Unicorn is the highest, how can I determine what they run? Or is Puppy just the cheapest that can run everything pretty well in Standard, maybe some High, resolutions? Or would that be Dolphin? Like is it better to ask about their power in terms of running a Crysis game? That's the benchmark, if this can be ran high, this is good...or is Skyrim the judgement game?

    Masterplan still has the DefaultUI for the Ship Yard, but it seems more people have that issue.
