Burning Crusade Classic - Upcoming Free Character Transfers

We will update this post to let you know all the details when we have the free character transfers underway.

Thank you!

Burning Crusade Classic - Raid Adjustments Discussion
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
With weekly maintenance in each region, we’re applying some hotfixes to raid encounters as a step toward their final tuning.

Serpentshrine Caverns
  • Morogrim Tidewalker – Tidewalker Lurkers’ health has been reduced to their post-nerf values.
  • Lady Vashj – Persuasion no longer provides crowd control immunity.

Tempest Keep
  • Kael’thas Sunstrider – The encounter is now set to its post-nerf configuration.

Again, these adjustments will be live following maintenance tomorrow, November 9.

Upon further review, we’ve decided to give this at least a week and discuss it some more. We will not be implementing the changes above with maintenance.

We’ll continue to look for your feedback here and update you with our revised plan, if any, in the next couple of days.

The Archivist' Codex 10k rep / hour
Rextroy has made a guide showing how to farm 10k reputation per hour with The Archivist' Codex. This is incredibly useful for anyone that wants to get the paragon mount (Tamed Mauler Harness), upgrade their conduits (Death-Bound Shard), or add sockets to their gear (Alloy-Warping Facetor).


In 9.1.5 they buffed the mobs inside the Rift in Korthia, they now drop Relic Fragments too! However most of them has quite poor droprate except the big elites called Famished Darkness. These has a similar loot table to rares in Korthia... The only difference is that they are much easier to farm, since there are a lot of them.

Their numbers are especially large in the Maw, which most people might not think about. You are also able to skip the root NPCs completely!

Depending on your Archivist's tier, they will drop different amount of relics. However at tier 5 you quite often see 3-4 Perplexing Rune-Cubes or Tattered Fae Designs, granting 150 research each...

Also keep in mind you need to be tier 4 to be able to keep buying the Repaired Riftkeys, but it goes quite fast these days to reach 4, also the rares in Korthia has quite a solid key droprate

By forming a party of 5, I was able to grind about 9250 reputation in 1 hour and 5 minutes, by maximizing the route and RNG, you can definitely reach 10k reputation an hour without too much trouble...

The most important is that you are early to grind it, before more people figure it out and starts to farm the Darkness!

Desmotaeron Animaflow Teleporter Unlock Requirement
Blizzard has shared how to unlock the Desmotaeron Animaflow Teleporter.

Just curious where this is. Read elsewhere you buy something off Venari, but she didn’t have any related items. My rep with her is maxed. But I didnt do all her quests. Is that the issue? Im up to rule 5

To be clear, the Desmotaeron Animaflow is available to any of your characters as long as one of your characters has the Sanctum of Domination achievement.

If for some reason it’s still unavailable, you may need to log in on the character with the achievement at least once.

WoW Classic Season of Mastery Name Reservation Details
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
On Thursday, November 11 at 6:00 p.m. PST, we’re opening Season of Mastery realms for name reservation. This will give players several days to create their main character and coordinate with others before the Season of Mastery begins on November 16.

To prepare for name reservation, select WoW Classic in your Battle.net Launcher, and then ‘World of Warcraft Classic’ in the Game Version & Account list. Season of Mastery realms will appear in-game on a new ‘Seasonal’ tab in the WoW Classic realm selector.

During name reservation, you will be able to create a maximum of one character per WoW account. If you change your mind about anything after you’ve created your character, you can delete that character and create a new one on any available realm in your region. In this region, the initial realms for name reservation will be:

Location - Realm Name - Realm Type (NA Realms)
  • U.S. East - Barman Shanker - PvP
  • U.S. East - Jom Gabbar - PvP
  • U.S. East - Shadowstrike - Normal
  • U.S. West - Mutanus - PvP
  • U.S. West - Nightfall - PvP
  • U.S. West - Obsidian Edge - Normal
  • Australia - Lionheart - Normal
  • Australia - Swamp of Sorrows - PvP

Realm Name - Realm Type (EU Realms)
  • Bonescythe - PvP
  • Dreadnaught - PvP
  • Ironfoe - PvP
  • Kingsfall - Normal
  • Quel’Serrar - Normal

Please note that for name reservation, each realm is configured to allow a limited number of total characters created, and if a realm becomes full, that realm will no longer allow further names to be reserved. If realms are reaching a full state during name reservation, we may open additional realms as soon as November 12. Before opening additional realms, we will post notices in the World of Warcraft Classic discussion forum.

After Season of Mastery begins on November 16, the limits of one character per WoW account and the maximum number of characters allowed per realm will be removed.

For more information on Season of Mastery, check out our announcement here and our design intentions posts here and here.

Thank you!

Covenant Signature and Class Abilities Macros

Patch 9.2 Encrypted Build
An encrypted Patch 9.2.0.40958 went live on the Vendor CDN today, meaning we'll likely see it on the PTR in the near future.



Patch 9.1.5 Hotfixes - November 5, 2021

    • Fixed an issue that would prevent progress to Kil'Jaeden after defeating Fallen Avatar too quickly.

Items and Rewards
  • Several Shadowlands on-use trinkets with cooldowns greater than 2 minutes have been updated to have their cooldowns reset when a raid boss encounter ends.
  • Traveler's Anima Cache can no longer be consumed by players who have not yet selected a Covenant causing the anima to be sent into the ether.

Quests
  • The level requirement to skip the Maw introduction is now 50 (was 48).
    • Developers’ note: We made this change to the level requirement because characters who skipped the Maw introduction at level 48 would end up being a level behind the Bastion introduction quest level requirements, thus leaving them in an awkward state of where to go next.

Diablo III Patch 2.7.2 PTR - Soul Shard Preview
Our friends over at DiabloFans previewed some of the new Soul Shards coming in Season 25.
