Lot’s of changes coming to pet battles. I haven’t had time myself but I believe the changes can be tested right now on the beta or PTR. Personally I’m really interested in how we’ll be handling these changes especially for to the Pandaren Water Spirit. Whirlpool and Geyser will now share the same ability slot. SO no more Howl Bomb /cries.
You can read the up coming on the changes yourself in the blue post on the official World of Warcraft forums “Legion Pet Battle Tuning “.
What are you going to miss the most?
I’m super bummed about the changes to Graves as well. I only recently managed to get my Graves pet, free once you hit level 20 playing Heroes of the Storm. I had been told he was awesome in PVP pet battles which I had not had much luck winning at all!! So if like me, your still working on your PVP pet battle achievements I suggest taking advantage of Graves while you can! I’ve found I win 2 outta 3 battles using the following strategy.
Fiendish Imp: Burn then Nether Gate.
Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling: Thunderbolt then Decoy.
Graves: Grave Destruction, Bonestorm, IF the current opponents pets is low health use Scull Toss till it dies. Rinse & Repeat.
FYI: Doing PVP pet battles currently counts towards the Draenor pet battle monument achievement too!
What PVP team have you found successful quite often?
One more thing, the Pet Charms awarded from completing the Draenor pet battle dailies are being reduced to roughly HALF of what’s being awarded now.
I’ve never seen a pet with such overwhelming power before! I tried to ask it where it came from and what it wants, but all it said was “THE MERGING IS COMPLETE” and then started assaulting nearby squirrels.
A hero of your stature would surely know some tricks to contain this magical monstrosity!
I first purchased the standard copy of Legacy of the Void™ which qualified me to then purchase “The Complete Trilogy” package at a discounted $40 instead of the $99.99 all together I spent about $75 for the Digital Deluxe copy of both Wings of Liberty® and Legacy of the Void™ including all the goodies. StarCraft® II is on sale thru May 18th!
Now I at least have hope to one day get the Fetish Shaman from the Diablo® III DD copy when it comes on sale again. Now if only Blizzard would offer sales on the older expansions as digital deluxe packages … not likely.
I didn’t for quite some time, but I have learned the error of my ways! So these last six months I’ve kept my $30 and instead bought tokens for my game time.
With Legion just around the corner I’ve been pushing to finally save my first 1M gold (I’m slightly more than 50% of the way now) so when I hear about an easy gold making guide I rush out to check it out! Ok, so here’s an easy way to make gold flipping Alchemical Catalysts and True Iron Ore to Make Draenic Philosopher’s Stones in only a few minutes. Great for when your short only a few thousand gold to buy your next WoWToken.
Don’t have alchemy? Try this tailoring gold making guide, flipping Windwool Cloth.
Don’t have tailoring? Here’s a leatherworking gold making guide, flipping Exotic Leather.
Q. How do you take a screenshot? A. I press the “Print Screen” button my keyboard, actually my button says “Prt Scr”on my keyboard.
Q. How do you turn your UI off to take a screenshot? A. Hold the ALT key down and press Z to turn your UI Off or On.
Q. How do you turn names off? A. Goto your Interface settings (press Esc) and look for Names. Uncheck the box beside “My Name”. You’ll notice you can also turn “Titles” “Guild Names” and “Friendly” or “Enemy” Players names On or Off by adding or removing these checks.
Q. Where are screenshots saved? A. It’s been my experience that by default WoW adds a new folder into the install folder named Screenshots. For example C:/Program Files/World of Warcraft/Screenshots
Additional Tips for Taking Good Screenshots
Get an engineer to make you Ornate Spyglass. This item can be used by anyone not just engineers. You can take some amazing self shots if you use the spyglass then use the sit emote then stand up emote.. It then allows you to zoom in on your character without him or her fading away up close.
I use PaintShop Pro to edit my screenshots but you could easily use any graphics software including the free program Gimp. If your taking screenshots in World of Warcraft you you may want to adjust the Brightness/Contrast about 25% if your screens seem a little too dark.
And for even more suggestions check out this Blizzard Watch Guide for several awesome tips on polishing your screenshots!
When you visited the Immortal Throne in the Ruins of Sescheron in the past, a message saying “The time is not right.” would appear. Apparently, the time is right now!
During the month of March, the torches will light up on the path there and Chief Elder Kanai’s spirit will rise from his throne to open a portal. This portal will lead to Kanai’s Stomping Grounds, a version of the cow level, just without the cow queen or the abundance of chests. Inside, Kanai’s spirit will help you slay the bovine beasts in typical Barbarian fashion.
The cow level can be found by going to the Immortal Throne found in Act III Ruins of Sescheron. While this dungeon is randomly generated the throne room can always be found in the west-northwest map of the sanctum.
It’s worth checking out the event quickly, especially if you haven’t seen the cow level yet because according to Blizzard community manager Nevalistis, the portal to Kanai’s Stomping Grounds will be gone by the end of March.
The Kanai event has actually been present since Patch 2.4.0 launched, but is only available during March – the real world birth month of Kevin Kanai Griffith, the artist for whom Kanai’s Cube (and King Kanai) is named.
For those of you who may not know, Kevin was a talented and dedicated member of the Diablo III development team who passed away in October of 2014 from a rare form of cancer. If you’d like to read more about Kevin, we included a short biography of his contributions to Diablo (and Blizzard as a whole) in the Kanai’s Cube preview.
This event is a chance for folks to get to adventure with Kanai one more time. We hope you enjoy the opportunity as much as we do.
