BlizzConline Rumors - Classic BC, Mobile Pet Battles, Diablo II Resurrected, Etc
With BlizzConline approaching this weekend, the rumors of what the show will reveal are starting to come out. Twitter user @Kaiser499, who previously leaked the Diablo IV reveal last year, took to twitter again to make claim as to what we can expect this year.

*Note - This is pure speculation and rumor. We will not know for certain what will be revealed until this weekend when the show takes place.*

Valor Points System Update
Blizzard has announced that items obtained before Patch 9.0.5 will not be upgradeable with Valor Points.

This is correct.

You will not be able to upgrade items that dropped before patch 9.0.5.

While we have technical reasons for this, we also want to avoid the feeling that you should go through months of item history and stuff your bags and your bank in preparation for this.

In-game, items that can be upgraded will be clearly labeled as such.

Patch 9.0.5 PTR - Ve'nari Upgrades Capped to Season 1
Spatial Realignment Apparatus and Unbound Reality Fragment, item upgrades sold by Ve'nari for Stygia, have been capped to Shadowlands Season 1.
  • Spatial Realignment Apparatus - Use: Add a socket to a Shadowlands Season 1 item that does not already have one. Can be used on Helms, Necks, Bracers, Belts, or Rings.
  • Unbound Reality Fragment - Use: Discover an upgrade to a random Conduit from among your lowest item level Conduits, up to item level 226.

Raid Loot Droprates Tuning - February 16
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
With scheduled weekly maintenance (February 16 in this region), we intend to make tuning adjustments to increase the amount of loot rewarded in Castle Nathria, and to improve the ratios of certain types of drops.


  • Castle Nathria
    • Bosses now drop 33% more loot than before, in all difficulties.
    • Weapons tokens now drop more often than before, in all difficulties.

10-player raids should now see 2 gear items, and 20-player raids should now see 4 gear items from each boss. These adjustments will not affect other loot that drops in Castle Nathria (such as Legendary Memories or Conduits), nor will there be any impact to drops from raid encounters outside Castle Nathria.

Thank you very much for your feedback!
