Shadowlands Conduits Update

Shadowlands Beta Character Wipe This Week
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
Later this week when we take the Shadowlands Beta offline for its weekly update, all test characters will be removed from the Shadowlands Beta realms. Over recent weeks, many of the bug reports we’ve received are related to player-characters getting into a broken state due to changes in questlines or Covenant flow. These are not bugs that could occur in a live environment, and they often mask other issues that we still need to identify and fix. When the Shadowlands Beta resumes public availability, testers will want to copy or create new characters in order to resume testing.

Thereafter, on test realms you’ll find that Renown with all Covenants will be set back to its initial, Week 1 state. Please note that there will be two options for template test characters: On the Maw and Oribos realms, you’ll find character copy and Level 50 templates for testing the initial experience. On the Torghast realm, there will be Level 60 character templates and vendors that support PvP, dungeon, and raid testing. This will skip the Shadowlands level-up content and put the test character right before their Covenant choice.

As in previous weeks, we’re targeting late Wednesday morning (PDT) for the time when we’ll take the Beta realms offline and do maintenance, remove all characters, and update the build.

Thank you to all Beta testers for your continued testing and feedback!

Some Warlords Crafted Armor Sets and Weapons Unobtainable in Shadowlands
Several appearances locked behind upgrade items will be temporarily unobtainable in Shadowlands and will return in a future patch. Thanks to Alayea for the list!

Yes, this is a side effect of Shadowlands development.

We already have plans to reintroduce all of the transmogs in a future patch. So they’ll only be unobtainable temporarily.

    Damn, if that's what they think is worthy of being added to the BMAH, they really have lost their touch.

    Blizz does not necessarily 'think' this is worthy of the bmah ... he was joking friend.

    Post #1: Poster harmlessly inserts a joke about bmah.
    Post #2: Next poster takes comment seriously and immediately conveys their disappointment that this is considered worthy of the bmah.
    Future: The rest of us get to listen to stupid posts in the general forum by people repeating the bmah comment as if it was fact and raging for no reason.

    Yes, the internet is a wonderful place.
    Post #3: Next poster is so worried about Blizzard being criticized that it doesn't realize that obvious follow up joke is an obvious joke.

    I don't personally care at all about the BMAH. It's supposed to be exclusive hyper-expensive items though, and these items don't qualify. I don't think either I or the first poster believes they'll actually be put there. People who do are pretty dumb and if you think you can avoid dumb people being dumb on anonymous public forums, you might be one of them.

    There... is one already? It's been there for months and it's even in the blue post above. Is this a joke that I'm being had by?

    If you had read what Blizzard said, they are doing this to fix broken characters.

    I couldn't care less about Blizz being criticized and haven't been playing wow in a while.
    I just don't like trolls ... like you.

    Or wait ... maybe I'm just joking right?

    Heh, yeah everything you said is definitely true and not a defensive reaction. You might also want to look up the definition of a troll. If you know the definition and are still upset by my post, I refer you to the first part of this post, and my previous post for additional self discovery.

    The fact that you deleted your original post at least shows that you're aware you overreacted.

    To say nothing about the fact they literally state why they're doing it - all the beta changes have broken some characters to the point they can no longer be used (and even stated that this bugs aren't replicatable in a live environment).

    But naw, let's ignore the actual context of the post, and just read the headers, right? Those are the only things that matter!

    What's the point discussing potential Blizzard screw up? Nothing remotely indicate it could went to BMAH. Later real feedback and real problems get lost in shit like this.

    (And such speculation is almost always bullshit. Like for example people screaming that Blizzard will soon add allied races and old pathfinder shop options - instead Blizzard is basically giving all this shit for free with pre-patch).

    It's a joke. What feedback do you want to give on this post? There's nothing here to give feedback on aside from disappointment with the idea of a character wipe on the beta, which gives Blizzard nothing.

    Oh they'll be re-introduced soon? Whew! Just after the Cataclysm lost transmogs and recipes, right?

    Don't hold your breath, folks. They had eight years to reimplement missing stuff from their previous oversights, they've learned nothing.

    I'm just glad I made all these transmogs on my characters long ago, you never know these days when the next fuck-up will occur.

    I just bought the cloth set for like 15000 gold. Won't bother with this anymore..

    I'm not sure I buy their reasoning, I've seen too many streamers lose freshly made premade characters which were clearly not the result of build changes. That being said, it's beta so a wipe of characters, a month before release no less, is hardly an issue and these are to be expected. But I'm not sure they identified the right reason for some of these issues. I also doubt they will get alot of decent feedback at this point. That they still fiddle with the basic stuff a month before release is concerning. :/
