Patch 8.1 - Demonology Warlock Changes
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
In the current build up on the PTR (Public Test Realm), a few changes were made to the Demonic Consumption level 100 talent:

  • Any imp that the Demonic Tyrant consumes now has a chance to grant you the Demonic Core buff. If your Tyrant consumes six imps when summoned, you have six individual chances to get a Demonic Core buff applied to you.
  • The damage buff to the Demonic Tyrant from consuming the Wild Imps is now much higher.

One additional note about the Demonic Tyrant:
  • In an upcoming build, the Demonic Tyrant will also extend the duration of any demons summoned from the Nether Portal level 100 talent.

Play with the Blues - Nov 8

Tomorrow, November 8, beginning at 4 PM Pacific time (7 PM Eastern), we'll be queuing for the new Warfront. As with previous tests, we'll be making a couple PTR-only changes: there will be special queuing tables set up in Orgrimmar and Zandalar, and any character level 110 or higher will be able to participate.

Additionally, there are a couple of changes to the Darkshore zone that we've enabled for testing purposes which we'd like to clarify. All of the Darkshore World Quests are currently active on PTR, and both factions are able to loot the treasures scattered around the zone. After release, only the faction that currently holds the zone will be able to loot the treasures, and only a handful of the World Quests will be enabled at any one time.

We hope to see you tomorrow evening!

WoW Secret Finding Discord Discovers Music Secret in Waycrest Manor
The WoW Secret Finding Discord has discovered the musical easter egg in Waycrest Manor that was mentioned during the Immersive Sounds of Azeroth Panel at Blizzcon.

  • 5 pipe organs afflicted by drust magic are found throughout Waycrest Manor.
  • Walking near them spawns a witch that you need to kill.
  • Lady Waycrest will become angry and play a discord chord on her organ when you kill one.
  • After you have killed all 5 witches and cleared the instance, return to "The Grand Foyer" at the entrance.
  • After a few minutes music from other Blizzard games will begin to play!

The music plays a loop of 6 familiar tracks.

Raid Testing Schedule - November 8th-12th
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
On Thursday, November 8th and Friday, November 9th we will be conducting raid tests of the Mythic Battle of Dazar'alor. After Mythic testing has ended up Friday, we will open Normal bosses 1-6 for both faction. These bosses will remain available over the weekend.

BOTH FACTIONS:
Testing is open for both factions. However, for some bosses, raid members will temporarily re-live events as the opposite faction using a story flashback.

Thursday, November 8th

Jadefire Masters - Mythic Battle of Dazar'alor
13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)
Conclave of the Chosen - Mythic Battle of Dazar'alor
14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)
Horde will experience this boss as if they were Alliance.

Friday, November 9th

Mekkatorque - Mythic Battle of Dazar'alor
13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)
Alliance will experience this boss as if they were Horde.
Grong - Mythic Battle of Dazar'alor
14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)
Normal Battle of Dazar'alor
16:00 PST (19:00 EST, 1:00 CET)

As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.

Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
A: In Zuldazar, Boralus, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade III in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)

Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 120 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.

Q: How long does testing last?
A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

Zandalari & Kul Tiran Allied Race Update
Blizzard has updated the Zandalari Troll and Kul Tiran race options.
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
We’ve discovered two errors in our original communications regarding which classes would be available to the Kul Tiran and Zandalari Allied Races. We’re in the process of updating those communications now, but wanted to call your attention to two important corrections:

  • Warlock was incorrectly listed as an available option for Zandalari at the What’s Next panel at BlizzCon. The Zandalari have no connection to fel magic, and will not be able to be Warlocks.
  • Mage was incorrectly omitted as an available option for Kul Tirans in the panel and on the World of Warcraft website. While Kul Tiran Mages are relatively uncommon, there are a few prominent examples, and so Kul Tiran characters will be allowed to play as Mage.

We apologize for the confusion that these errors have caused.

This wasn't an error in communication. You just realized after the fact that your judgment was a bit lacking and so you changed some things.
This was simply what it is, an error. We posted one thing on the website and one thing in the slides at the panels. This was a misalignment on assets so we're correcting that now. It happens.
