Transfering Primal Chaos to Alts in Patch 10.0.5
Blizzard has hotfixed an item into the game to transfer Primal Chaos between characters on your account for a price.

  • Satchel of Coalescing Chaos is sold by Rabul, the Artisan's Consortium vendor, in Valdrakken found at the coordinates 35.6, 58.8.
  • Costs 80 Primal Chaos to purchase.
  • Provides 60 Primal Chaos to the alt that uses it, making this item a loss of 20 Primal Chaos to send to an alt.
  • There is no reputation requirement for the Artisan's Consortium to purchase it.

Primal Chaos can now be Sent to Alts

  • Rabul of the Artisan’s Consortium now sells a Satchel of Coalescing Chaos that binds to your Blizzard Account. This item costs 80 Primal Chaos and provides 60 Primal Chaos to the character who uses it.

As you can see, some Primal Chaos will be lost in the transaction. This is because we want to make sure that while this is a great way for a main to help an alt, the best way to gear up a character should generally be via actually playing that character.

Nonetheless, this should provide an additional use for your Primal Chaos, as well as a good way to get some powerful gear to your alts quickly.

  • Some players who complete the Traveler’s Log are not receiving the Ash’adar mount reward immediately in their chest at the Trading Post. We aim to have this resolved this week.

Thank you for your patience.

  • Sometimes the completion credit for activities in the Traveler’s Log are resetting. We believe we have found the cause of this issue and are looking to have this resolved this week.
  • With the upcoming restarts, we are looking to restore the Trader’s Tender currency for players who made a double purchase of the same item from the Trading Post.
  • For players who made a Trading Post purchase and didn’t receive the item they purchased, we are still working on this issue and aim to have it resolved later this week.
  • Some players who complete the Traveler’s Log are not receiving the Ash’adar mount reward immediately in their chest at the Trading Post. We aim to have this resolved this week.

We will share more details as they are finalized. Thank you for your understanding.

Patch 10.0.5 Hotfixes - February 1

    • Fixed an issue where some Echoes could occasionally not be consumed by spell casts.

Dungeons and Raids
  • Vault of the Incarnates
    • Fixed an issue preventing players from returning to other areas of the raid when returning to an instance with Broodkeeper Diurna already defeated.
    • Kalecgos now summons a portal that will return players to the raid entrance after Broodkeeper Diurna has been defeated.
  • Mythic+
    • Completing a Mythic 21 or higher dungeon, but exceeding the target time, now awards Mythic+ Rating as if the dungeon were a Mythic 20.
      • Developers’ note: We award partial Mythic Rating credit for untimed dungeons (up to 40% over the target time) to recognize the skill and effort involved, and to encourage groups to stick together even if it seems like they’re going to fall a bit short of the timer. But at the very high end of the system, we’ve heard feedback that sometimes the surest path to further incremental Rating increases lies in seeking out keys a group may have no hope of clearing within the timer. We don’t want to change the way the system works for the vast majority of players who are working their way towards new Valor upgrade tiers, or cosmetic unlocks, but past the Mythic 20 threshold, there are no further tangible rewards other than the leaderboards and eventual end-of-season competition for the Thundering Hero title. The goal of this change is thus to ensure that the way to climb the leaderboards and earn a title meant for the best Mythic+ players in the world is by successfully completing dungeons within the allotted time, without negatively impacting the majority of players using the system. When this change takes effect, some players who are just barely at 2400 rating, with some of that rating coming from untimed 21+ keys, may drop below 2400 and need to re-earn that Rating in order to continue to upgrade new items to Rank 13.

Items and Rewards
  • Fixed an issue where certain item upgrade previews would display higher item levels than intended.

Player versus Player
  • Druid
    • Feral
      • Fixed an issue that could cause Leader of the Pack to not always apply correctly to the character while in Cat Form.
  • Mage
    • Frost
      • Fixed an issue where Snowdrift would inconsistently be applied on elevated terrain.

  • Fixed an issue where Benthic gear could not be upgraded preventing the completion of “Create Your Own Strength.”

  • Fixed an issue that caused performance decreases when using certain addons.

This Month’s Bonus Reward

Ash'adar, Harbinger of Dawn mount

Complete activities to fill the bar at the top of the Traveler’s Log found in the Adventure Guide (Shift-J)***, and you’ll receive this month’s bonus reward— Ash'adar, Harbinger of Dawn mount.

How it Works
Get Tender Every Month

At the first of each month, players with an active account in good standing will receive 500 Trader’s Tender automatically every month from a chest called the Collector’s Cache. If you don’t have active game time on your account or aren’t a subscriber at the start of a new month, don’t worry. Your Tender will be awarded on the first day of the month when you do have game time or an active subscription. This will be the same amount for everyone, regardless of how you pay for your game time.

The Traveler's Log
Complete monthly activities listed in the new Traveler’s Log. Each month features a rotating, themed set of activities. These activities provide the opportunity to earn up to 500 additional Trader’s Tender. There’s only a set amount of Tender you can earn each month through completing activities, so you won’t need to complete all the ones in the log each month. You’ll be able to pick and choose from a variety of fun in-game activities to easily earn Tender. Players can choose to earn by continuing to play the game as they already do, such as completing quests, competing in battlegrounds, participating in holiday activities, and even running Mythic+ dungeons. But you can also choose to take part in activities uniquely designed for the month.

What a Tender Moment
As a way of saying “Thank you” to the community for continuing to play World of Warcraft with us, we will be awarding a bonus 500 Trader’s Tender to players who purchase Dragonflight and add it to their account†. This bonus Trader’s Tender will also be rewarded retroactively to players who have already purchased Dragonflight. Players can collect this bonus Trader’s Tender once the Trading Post feature goes live from their Collector’s Cache.

Learn more about the Trading Post in our previously published news post on the official site.

*The Trading Post feature is not available in WoW Classic titles.
**Requires World of Warcraft Subscription or Game Time
***Requires Level 10 to access the Adventure Guide.
†Bonus Trader’s Tender is granted only once per account.

We’ll use this thread to provide further updates when we have them.
