7.3.5 PTR - Mythic Plus Battle Resurrections
Combat resurrections in Mythic+ dungeons in Patch 7.3.5 will function similarly to the way they currently do in raids.

  • Combat resurrections start with 1 charge for the group and gain a new charge every 10 minutes.
  • Raise Ally, Rebirth, Soulstone and Hunter battle resurrections all share the same charges.
  • You can accumulate a total of 5 charges at a time, however, it would take 40 minutes to reach this point.



7.3.5 PTR - Ogmot Journal
Ogmot the Mad is a new rare elite ogre in Silithus that drops Ogmot's Dream Journal. This journal contains 10 pages that detail the events of a nameless person who deals with the whispers of the Old Gods. The drop was originally discovered by wilder_people!

    It's strange to see ogre assets from Draenor being used on Azeroth. We've never been led to believe that ogres brought their architecture style with them.

    new battleground looks pretty bad, i am so disappointed

    Judging from the achievement list, Seething Shore sounds like yet another Arathi Basin. Could we maybe have something new for a battleground? Please? PLEASE?

    From what I gathered from Blizzcon is that it is a Dynamic Capture Point battleground... So EotS but where the cap points changes every now and then

    That looks more like Twilights Hammer assets, seen those since Cata hit

    Not really you cap ("mine") a point, you get 100 points, and move on, it's not like you hold those points, or defend them.

    Okay I'm against the changes to mythic+ battle res. Now I don't think it will 'ruin' it or anything of the sort, but it highlights something I loath about games, namely changing the core game to cater to an esport. They've already got custom code the event realm, this could really just be limited to that server, especially since it already provides a very different experience compared to live when players have access to all classes and really high level gear compared to what they could realistically get otherwise.

    As it stands this is a net-negative for a majority of the player base, especially people like my 'team' of five people where we have a warlock, a priest, a bm hunter, a rogue, and myself a druid. Oh your class has an advantage in one area? Well good bye to that because we want to push an esport!

    Now if they compensated for the throttling by giving M+ the same reset system as raids for lust/cooldowns/etc it might be something interesting, but as it stands, no. It's just a terrible decision driven by a new fad that could be limited to the environment where it's actually a problem.

    CR is not a comparable advantage to others though, it's by far the strongest utility there is for M+ and is the main reason resto druids and blood dk's are so sought after. This change brings CR in line with all the other utility, since you can't stack them well either. Having several classes with bloodlust doesn't result in more bloodlusts, having several stuns doesn't necessarily allow you to stun any more than before due to diminishing return.

    It's a necessary change to allow more classes to be even considered to be brought along for their utility. Face it, a team with 3+ combat resses have a much better chance of success than a team with only one or even none, it's way too powerful not to be treated with the same restriction as bloodlust.

    Entirely different scenery and foliage than Pandaria, so... MoP was not a tropical island.

    No, it does not.

    It looks more similar to the Goblin tropical isles.

    The thing is that 'advantages' only matter in the competitive mythic+ screen, which is practised by a incredible minority of players. This change affects everyone, which is why I object to it. It only matters for the esport and the few thousand people pushing keys above 20-25, so it could have easily been limited to just the esport, same way the gearing and affix combos were.

    Mythic+ is PvE not PvP, so 99.9% of the time what one team does doesn't matter to other teams.
