  • #551 (New) - [DNT] $gSir:Lady;
  • #552 (New) - My beautiful $p, I was most pleased to receive your letter, for I been thinking of you as well. I simply cannot wait to tell you what happened to a certain duke at my latest court. It is positively hilarious. I thought of you immediately when it happened. Until then, The Countess
  • #553 (New) - My beautiful $p, Although I would rather have speak with you in person, I always welcome your messages. I fear I have nothing of particular import to inform you of since we last spoke. It has been positively dull out here in the Redelav District. Perhaps I shall stir up a little excitement... Yours in mischief, The Countess
  • #554 (New) - My beautiful $p, Imagine my joy when I discovered your message amongst the letters Alfryd brought me this morning. It was, of course, the first that I replied to. As to your question, I cannot say. I will see what gossip I may uncover amongst the socialites and nobles of the Redelav District in regard to it. Come see me soon and I shall share what I learn. Sincerely, The Countess
  • #555 (New) - Dear Best Bud, Lost Sybille read me letter. Lost Sybille teach me write back. You still best bud! Greetings, Stonehead
  • #556 (New) - Best Bud, Me no read letter. Lost Sybille not here. Okay bye. Me, Stonehead
  • #557 (New) - Best Bud, Me need snacks. Your letter bad snack. Send snack letter. Need snacks, Stonehead
  • #558 (New) - Hey $p, Why'd you write us a letter? We're right here in Sinfall. Cudgelface don't read so good. Just stop by and say hi next time. - Rendle
  • #559 (New) - Hey $p, Is this what it feels like be a fancy noble, getting letters all the time? Not sure I like it. Talking's easier and I'm a lot better at it. You see the fancy calligraphy I did on your name at the top? Took too long, so I stopped after that. But it looks great, yeah? Anyway, gotta run. How do dem fancy fangs end letters? Probably some big swirly calligraphy, right?
  • #560 (New) - This is Cudgelface. Thanks for letter. I like letters now. I write letters now. I'm learning new things. This is Cudgelface.
  • #561 (New) - Greetings old friend, I am certain you would be amused to know that your letter surprised me. Quite literally. The stone fiend threw it at me while I was locking one of the crypts up. Ha! That particular messenger must've had a grudge against me. You never can fully trust a stone fiend. Give them all the orders you want. Stone fiends must obey them, but they are devilishly good at finding loopholes, when they want to. I have ordered my messenger directly to not throw, toss, or lob this letter at you. Hopefully it works. Sincerely, Cryptkeeper Kassir
  • #562 (New) - Greetings old friend, I was encouraged by your letter. I am confident that Sinfall is in capable hands. Would you please ask the Accuser to stop by my crypts the next time she travels to the Halls of Atonement? I could use her advice on a certain situation with one of the souls we found in the crypts. Most unusual... Sincerely, Cryptkeeper Kassir
  • #563 (New) - Greetings old friend, You must forgive my short reply. The Chamberlain's goons have cracked open one of my crypts again! They stole the soul that I was tending to in there, and put a mirror in it instead. Do not worry, I did not follow them through it. I know better than to wander into a mirror I do not know the destination of. Sincerely, Cryptkeeper Kassir
  • #564 (New) - If you can read this, you must really be $p. I enchanted the parchment to only reveal my true message to you. Everyone else will see a drawing of Bwonsamdi's behind! Ha! That's what they deserve for reading someone else's letter... Anyway, I don't really have anything to say, I just really wanted to trick someone into looking at the drawing. Leave it somewhere that the Prince will find it. That'd be hilarious! See you soon, Lady Moonberry
  • #565 (New) - Heya $p, Thanks for the letter. I read it to Lemonseed and the gang and everyone here loved it! They're all so jealous that I get to attend the Ember Court with you. They're all begging me to take them to the next one. What a great opportunity to play some tricks on them all... See? Even when the Ember Court isn't happening, it's still fun! Talk to you soon, Lady Moonberry
  • #566 (New) - $p, We're best friends, right? And best friends don't ask uncomfortable questions when asked for a favor, right? Right? Okay, good. I need you to send me twenty dredgers in a crate. Give them all muckbombs and confetti, with orders to shout "Gotcha!" when the crate is opened. I'll owe you one, Lady Moonberry
  • #567 (New) - To $p, Thank you for sending an exhaustive report of your recent hunts. Not all of them appear relevant to the Wild Hunt's current endeavors, but they are impressive regardless. I held the line against an enraged eggtender from Gormhive today. Watcher Ver'lo got the killing blow with a perfectly aimed arrow from the balcony above. It's a shame you weren't there to see it. You would've appreciated the accuracy of his shot. Continue the hunt, Hunt-Captain Korayn
  • #568 (New) - To $p, I won't contest the accuracy of your current tally of kills, as reported in your previous letter. But I do find them suspiciously high. I suppose you are the Maw Walker... Still, I enjoy our contests and will attempt to keep up with you. I have recorded 138 killing blows since I received your previous letter, and have-- Make that 152 kills! Sure a few in that last wave were mites, but I can't afford to be picky when you're so far ahead! Beat that, Hunt-Captain Korayn
  • #569 (New) - $p, I received your letter in a rare moment of quiet here at Claw's Edge. The tales of your recent adventures were most welcome, both to me and the few hunters and grovewardens recovering alongside me. I hope you don't mind I shared your stories with them. Your legend is growing faster than you might imagine. There's no doubt that tales of the mighty Maw Walker will be told around Wild Hunt campfires for a long time in Ardenweald. I am proud to be a part of your story. Until we hunt together again, Hunt-Captain Korayn
  • #570 (New) - Dear $p, I hope this letter eventually reaches you. I've learned to be wary of faeries offering to help, but this one brought a letter from you! Or least a very good imitation of one... Still, I believe we know each other well enough by now to identify each other from our writing style. As to the content of your letter, I trust you know that my grove always welcome to you. Many have found peace and safety here after troubles in their past, myself included. Whenever you need respite from the heavy burdens of being the Maw Walker, you will always find it here in Hibernal Hollow. Sincerely, Aliothe
  • #571 (New) - Dear $p, Your previous letter was the talk of the grove. Guardian Molan was impressed by the tales of your recent battles. He requests that you send more details, including sketches of the tactical positioning used during the fight. Na'lor was breathless at the description of the vistas you witnessed on your travels. There is wanderlust in that one... Taiba and the crafters are eager to inspect your new equipment the next time you visit. They hope to learn a thing or two while repairing it for you. Your willingness to spread knowledge between the realms has inspired us all. Thank you, Aliothe
  • #572 (New) - Dear $p, Anima falls like stars in the grove as I write this letter to you. Dazzlewing weaves between them in sky, giggling. Teendynneetll remains still, but has not yet noticed that a single star has landed on their shoulder. Or perhaps, they do not mind. It is moments like this that make the fighting worthwhile. Remember that as you strive toward your next endeavor. From your previous letter, it sounds like it will be a most worthwhile one. But as you walk your path and embrace your role as Maw Walker, do not forget to rest in the peaceful moments as well. They remind us why we must fight. In rest, Aliothe
  • #573 (New) - Hey $p, I was just trying to wake up Rury when your letter came. Hours of my shouting at him couldn't get him to budge, but the moment he heard you had wrote us a letter, he perked right up. Figures, heh. Anyway,we all like the plan you're thinking of for the next Ember Court. Sounds like it'll be a blast. We're going to get an invitation, I assume. It wouldn't be right to tease us with the details and then not ask us to come... right? Right? Waiting for that invitation, Choofa and the gang
  • #574 (New) - I gotta make this one quick, $p. I can't go into all the details, but let's just say that I MIGHT have squirreled away some leftover fireworks from the last few Ember Courts. And I MIGHT have decided to use them to scare the walnuts outta Lady Moonberry. Now I'm on the run. Lady Moonberry swore to get me back real good, and she doesn't do halfway when it comes to pranks! I'm hoping she thinks Rury did it. He'll be easy to catch! Send more fireworks! Choofa-on-the-run
  • #575 (New) - Hey buddy! I gotta say, your letter made me even more excited for the next Ember Court. My hype level is cranked to eleven now! So when's it gonna happen? Slanknen won't stop asking me about it, and Awool's giving me his go-to grumpy stare from across the grove. To be honest, the stare is probably my fault, but Slanknen's curiosity isn't! You gotta give me some details to share with him. Or better yet, swing by Tirna Vaal and bring us our invitation in person! It'd be fun to see you. Keep partying, Choofa

    New PTR build is also online and you can test raytracing on the PTR too. Performance is as expected, turning RT on high halves my FPS. For now I tested only in Zuldazar and there aren't that many spots where you can see a difference, mostly better AO at the stairs and down at the harbor you can see that Blizzard didn't model watertight models because if you turn on RT some light shines through the cracks and illuminates areas that are supposed to be dark. It's probably better in Shadowland zones with more dynamic lights.

    I can’t get mine to enable. I am using a RTX 2080 super with latest drivers and it says it graphics related...

    I'm using a 2080ti with driver 452.06 and windows 10 build 2004. RT seems to be buggy sometime because every now and then the screen flashes, throws me to desktop and then RT is disabled until I restart the PTR.

    As for RT shadows, I did some more testing and in most zones it's very subtle. In Dalaran or other major cities it's mostly the higher detail shadows from player models and the more realistic softshadows from buildings. In open world zones like Durotar it's a little bit more obvious because it adds Shadows on the underside of cliff overhangs and shadows are rendered at a greater distance. Also it seems like only dynamic light sources like the sun, fire, some lanterns and torches produce RT shadows (similar to Shadow of the Tomb Raider) because in older dungeons like Ragefire or Molten Core the performance impact is close to zero because only the flame elementals are dynamic light sources and not the lava.

    Have to see how it looks in the new Shadowlands zones but I think the performance hit is too big. Being back to 25 FPS in major cities feels bad and it isn't as transforming as in Shadow of the Tomb Raider or Metro Exodus or at least it isn't in the current zones.

    I am guessing that since I don't even know what "ray-traced shadows" is, it doesn't concern me.

    Inb4 it's awesome and I won't understand how I ever lived without the feature.

    You need the most recent Windows Update and will likely have to manually do it as that update isn't being automatically pushed yet.

    I just checked the beta after patching and i can't enable RT on my 2070S with the latest drivers.
    I'm on Windows 10 1909, maybe the latest Windows build is required cause WoW is using the DX ultimate features for RT?

    Wonder if the Token to get a Weapon and Token to get an offhand/shield always drop as a pair so bridge the gap between 2h wielding specs and spec needing 2 items.
    Remember situations where people ended up with had a normal main hand, a heroic staff and then a mythic shield/offhand so this would help prevent those weird situations.
