    The name of the patch is pretty interesting, isn't it? Fury Incarnate.

    This instantly makes you think of Fyrrak. He's also had his little "Deathwing moment" flying over the Dragon Isles in 10.1, but I'm guessing they'll keep that crescendo going into 10.2 when he probably assaults the Emerald Dream?

    It's just funny to me, since nothing in the patch news seems to mention anything about that stuff. There's a fiery background image in the roadmap, that's about it.

    Maybe the Dreamsurges and those Waking Dream portals the post mention, will be because the dream is in turmoil (meaning he already attacked it)?

    Or maybe... maybe the new World Tree made the Dream all super-charged, and erratic. It would be cool and unexpected if we actually went in there to ensure Life is less chaotic. After all, when we aided the other flights, it was mostly against their own machinations or cosmic powers and not against some external threat, wasn't it?

    Yeah good point! Not that it matters right now, but technically I guess that also means 10.2 will contain a Winter Veil refresh.

    I know I was an idiot about Fyrakk before (not gonna forgive myself for missing the damned obvious "flame extinguished" being the sundered flame...) but maybe this is the patch where he's handled?

    I dunno, at this point after my idiocy I'm not gonna call it for sure, heh.

    It was pretty obvious Fyrakk was going to be fought again and well DREAM SURGES kinda show where we're going in 10.2.

    I would expect season 3 to start a couple of weeks before Blizzcon. But I'm not sure if they would talk about the last season and the next expac or only the latter.

    My mind is spinning right now, so I'm a bit spammy with my posts.

    But imagine if the new Night Elf heritage armour takes a completely different direction from what (I assume) most people want. Instead of some cool Warcraft 3-inspired Sentinel set, we get some cutesy Fae-dragon nonsense worn by priests in a temple or something. Eek. Where armour pieces barely fit together, gloves and boots are way too chunky and the helmet is simply goofy (thinking of the Darkshore set).

    Slightly more details on some things from the press announcement:
    Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment
    As players begin their adventures in rectifying anomalies in the timeways with a determined Chromie, the future looms: the next Dragonflight update, Fury Incarnate (10.1.7), will soon be available on the public test realm (PTR), featuring:

    CONTINUING STORY QUESTS AND CAMPAIGN PROLOGUE

    o The next chapters of ongoing stories will be available, teeing up what’s coming later this year in update 10.2.
    o Players can also expect the next chapters of the Reforging Tyr questline.
    o Lastly, quests featuring the Bronze Dragonflight that aim to bring resolution to the flight’s forays into the timeways during the events of Fractures in Time (10.1.5) will be playable!

    DAWN OF THE INFINITE – HEROIC DIFFICULTY
    o The Infinite Dragonflight, longstanding enemies of the Bronze dragons, have worked hard to see their ultimate goal of triggering the transformation of Nozdormu, the Aspect of Time, into Murozond.
    o This eight-boss Mythic-only mega-dungeon will be split into two queueable Heroic-difficulty dungeons.

    NEW PUBLIC OBJECTIVES: Dreamsurges
    o Various existing Dragonflight zones will become attuned to the Dream, causing all of the zone’s rares and world quests to drop a special currency. This currency can be used to enable zone-wide buffs and trigger Waking Dream invasion events similar to Time Rifts.
    o Dream-empowered rares can also drop gear tokens (similar to the tokens dropped by rares on the Forbidden Reach), making them a great source for catch-up gear for alts or new and returning players.

    NEW CUSTOMIZATIONS
    o A batch of new customizations will be available for players to try out, including:
    Heritage armor and associated unlock questlines for Night Elf and Forsaken.
    Along with new heritage armor, additional face and body tattoos will be available for Night Elf players, and new skin colors will be available for Forsaken players.

    And so much more! Additional information and updates to the PTR for 10.1.7 throughout the testing cycle can be found on our In Development forums, as well as the World of Warcraft website.

    The timing of it happening right after Draenei Warlocks became a thing makes me think that aswell. I can't see them not giving them the red skin option atleast at some point, and it's a bit weird to do a Draenei exclusive quest in what seems to be a Nelf/Forsaken focus patch.

    I'm guessing September 12th or 19th given the Brewfest rework, that'd slot it right in. Regarding the heritage armor, I think it's best to assume it's final. I remember people saying that the orc and human armors seemed unfinished and I believe they were unchanged from the preview, save a bug with the human armor having some assets missing compared to the preview.

    Ooh right, so a Dreamsurge is literally a surge. The normal content in the zone becomes all dreamified. Earn a currency from doing it when it's in that special state, and use currency to launch Waking Dream invasion events. Neato. Bit fed up with invasion-type events, but as long as they're green and drop Life magic-inspired gear we're all good.

    Nice, account wide gear tokens. Hopefully they won't screw it up and we will able change them to sets too, since S2 looks a lot better.

    I have a feeling they will drop the final recolor of the "dragon" questing sets, we have yet to get a green one.

    Then we go into the dream we get all-new armor.

    Honestly Time Rifts were too damn low effort compared to what they could have been. I don't expect more than a skybox change and a filter. Maybe they might want to create a set of mechanics and give them to the upgraded rares so they are actually threatening?

    Which set do you mean? I would have assumed the crafted set, but the green one came from the Forbidden reach, so it can't be that one.

    Yeah, I wasn't expecting much, but I would have assumed the events would have taken place entirely inside the time rifts, with more focus on the actual worlds.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    Zaralek questing, which got recolored to Bronze/Infinite in 10.1.5.

    Why though? At this point being out of touch would be a choice.

    You're probably right.

    I also got this feeling that Hearthstone is more faithful to the Warcraft franchise than WoW, which is kinda funny considering all the joke cards and expansions.

    It's just a personal fear, because the Night Elf set is something I've been looking forward to. The recent ones for Humans and Orcs were also very anticipated, and seemed like they would have obvious sources of inspiration. But a lot of people find that the Orc one misses the mark completely.

    Worgen is another one that have a cool Victorian thing going on, but at the same time all that gold, the top hat, and the fact that it's all designed around the nobility just seems so unecessary. They should probably have kept the Victorian look but instead aimed for something more lowkey, like a Huntsman and his loyal dog out on the moor or something.

    I'm looking at this new Undead set, and personally I'm not a fan. It was a chance to feature some cool Lordaeron ancestry, with perhaps a tattered or rustry old set worn since death by the Scourge. But I think it looks more like a mishmash of Forsaken architecture design (fence spikes, coffins, plague vials, etc). What is the practical benefit to dress like that for a race that so clearly remembers its origins and history?

    Lol at Blizz already addressing Nelf fans whining.

    It's crazy that we don't even have a clue what that disk Iridikron used is. Usually a McGuffin is shown right at the start.

    Would be a neat way of reintroducing the 5 headed Dragon.
    Erm.... arent they working on bringing back Galakrond?
