Patch 7.1.5 - Mage Barriers
Mages get two new barrier spells in Patch 7.1.5, complete with new spell animations: Blazing Barrier and Prismatic Barrier.





Glowcap Festival
Glowcap Festival allows players to help keep Fshoo alive in Sporeggar to earn reputation.

  • Head to Sporeggar in Zangarmarsh to take part in this holiday.
  • Mushrooms will spawn around the town, giving you Glowcap and other helpful items:
  • You can purchase all four of the items above from Mycah, the Sporeggar Quartermaster.
  • You can also loot a Pungent Truffle, allowing you to transform into a sporeling for 24 hours.
  • Fshoo spawns periodically, gaining stacks of Fshoo Grow. Each stack increases his size by 1% and health by 100%.
  • Fshoo also loses health at a constant rate, making him harder and harder to heal as the grow stacks appear.
  • Using the items and healing him to keep him alive as long as possible is the objective.
  • When Fshoo dies he will give everyone 50 Sporeggar reputation for every stack of the buff he had.



Un'Goro Madness
Un'Goro Madness allows players to defeat group bosses in Un'Goro Crater to obtain temporary buffs from Dino Mojo.

  • Adaptation - Become strong, like a dinosaur.
  • Adaptation: Poisonous Skin - The caster's skin secrets toxins that will inflict 699 Nature damage to all players within 100 yards every 3 sec.
  • Adaptation: Adrenaline - The caster's adrenal gland is hyperactive. Every 3 sec. the caster's damage dealt is increased.
  • Adaptation: Heavy Footed - The caster is heavy footed. Any time the caster moves, nearby enemies are flung by the shock waves their steps create.
  • Adaptation: Spores - The caster's skin is infested with volatile spores. Every 5 sec. a series of spores are launched at nearby enemies. Anyone caught within 0 yards of the impact will suffer Nature damage.
  • Adaptation: Caustic Blood - The caster is bleeding profusely, every 3 sec. a pool of Caustic Blood forms. Players standing in these pools suffer 838 Nature damage every second.
  • Adaptation: Chronometric Instability - The caster's ties to the timeline are unstable. Many abilities will echo at the same location several seconds later.

Did the Legion always have spaceships?It'd be weird if they were a new thing since they had millions of years to craft some.
for quite a long time, though Argus may shed some light on this. (Alex_Afrasiabi)

Build of the Month - December 2016
Each month or so we will post a couple of hardware setups for those of you who are thinking of upgrading their computer!

All of the parts on this page are Amazon affiliate links. When you purchase your parts through them it helps support the site!

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

Depending on how much you want to overclock, you may need to spend a bit more for a better CPU cooler like the NH-D15.

Unless you are doing a lot of video rendering or streaming, you do not need the 6700K and would get more performance from spending 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!

    I have a Lock, Can't die, tons of damage.. It's quite fun, I am more of a Mage person though. But I guess if you suck, then any class is you play is weak pleb

    It's bizarre, tons of classes have gotten new animations and spell effects in a patch before. Hell Warlocks got a entire quest line for green fire. However people only bitch about it when Mages get it.

    being retarded is okay, being retarded while maining mage is a must.
    every moron points the argument to the logs ignoring the fact that only 3% of the player base are playing as warlocks and that the mechanics of the class in all 3 specs are complete and utter shit.
    But whatever, I'll let you wallow in your ignorance
