Patch 6.2 To Do List

Patch 6.2 To Do List

Ready for Patch 6.2?

I didn’t put in enough time into capping apexis crystals so only my druid has 60K but two of my other toons have 25K. I’ll work on it more today but I wish I had thought to max the mage tower work orders on my warlock – dang it!!

Same goes for garrison resources, the goal was to cap them all but the reality is most of my toons have 6K plus but not quite all.

All my trading post should be level 3 for the 20% rep gains by Tuesday. You might also consider having a level 3 stable for increased mount speed, and immune to dismounting in Tanaan Jungle.

trading agreementIt’s worth noting that if your revered with Arakkoa Outcasts when Tanaan Outpost is constructed, you will be able to purchase a Trade Agreement that will increase the cache size of the Garrison from 500 up to 1,000.

I did save more than 1K pet charms for the new vendors to purchase all the pets and toys that will be available with Patch 6.2

Just so I could focus on Tanaan Jungle and nothing else I had hoped to have my harem all level 100 and with ilevels of 660+ but did I do it? Not quite: my poor little monk is still level 60 but everyone else is 100 Yah! My ilevels aren’t quite there yet either ranging from 619 – 677 but I’m working on it — again — kinda been taking abit of a break the last couple months. I know HFC requires an iLevel of 650 to enter but I’ve got time since wing one: Hell’s Breach doesn’t open till June 30th.

I had hoped to have all my garrisons level 3 – and YES they are. But I had hoped to also have all my buildings level 3 and no, no they are not. My newest 100s are still building up the garrison resources and gold needed — garrisons are expensive! Speaking of that .. now I’m worried, do I even have enough gold to build my shipyards?

I have been switching some buildings around in prep for this patch. Unless Blizz adds a cache mission for Hellfire Citadel then the missions are really not worth more than what gold and garrison resources you can get from them. If that’s the case then we will want all our followers to have the scavenger or treasure hunting abilities.

dwarven bunkerThis pretty makes the Dwarven Bunker no longer useful unless your like me and have WoW OCD and need to see all those follower purple and 675.

I wonder with this patch if our followers are getting an upgrade on their iLevels? If yes then scratch what I said about the Dwarven Bunker.

I had a look at the new wowhead.com tool for Draenor Pathfinder and I’m already 100% so I’m good to go with flying in Draenor once I hit revered with new reputations.

What I totally Failed Completing

I know there were several other things I had planned to have done before this patch but I failed big time. I didn’t finish my nemesis quest and the changes to Ashran will make doing so just that much harder. I did not get “Ahead of the Curve” but I’m not crying about that either. I did not get my legendary ring chapter three completed but on one single character.

Plans For Day One

I plan to tame my fel wolf and kill the champions asap for Baleful Armaments which will save my apexis crystals for other things. I’m looking forward to picking up new treasures and killing the new rares while also capturing new wild pets and battling new rare pets.

I plan to get as much Felblight from Fishing, Herbalism, Mining, or Skinning I can although I expect to see a fair amount of ninja’s causing grief again when it comes to nodes.

  • Withered Herb can contains  Felblight for Herbalists.
  • Felmouth Frenzy School can contain  Felblight from Fishing.
  • Beasts in Tanaan Jungle can give  Felblight when Skinned.
  • Mineral nodes in Tanaan Jungle can contain  Felblight for Miners.
  • Felblight can be sold on the Auction House.

Felblight will be a new reagent for crafting the new upgrade items.

  • 60  Felblight– for Stage 6 upgrades.
  • 30  Felblight– for Stage 5 upgrades.
  • 15  Felblight– for epic gems.
  • 1  Felblight– for  Glyph of Ascendance.

Patch 6.2 Tier 18 Set Bonus Changes

Tier 18 Set Bonus Changes

What do you think of the new Tier 18 set bonus changes? You can view the original proposed set bonuses here.

Tier 18 Set Bonus Changes

In any case, here are details on what changed:

Death Knight (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)

  • Frost 2pc: Crit damage bonus reduced to 6% from 10%; Haste bonus reduced to 3% from 5%.

Druid (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)

  • Balance 4pc: Damage bonus reduced to 6% from 8%.
  • Feral 2pc: Bonus to Omen of Clarity proc chance reduced from 133% to 90%

Mage (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)

  • Arcane 2pc: Damage of all summons reduced approximately 40%.
  • Frost 4pc: Water Jet duration bonus increased to 10 sec from 4 sec.

Monk (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)

Paladin (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)

Priest (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)

  • Shadow 4pc: Multistrike bonus increased to 20% from 16%.

Rogue (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)

  • Subtlety 2pc: Vanish damage bonus increased to 30% from 10%.

Shaman (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)

Warlock (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)

Warrior (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)

  • Fury 2pc: Critical strike bonus to Wild Strikes increased to 100% from 50%
  • Fury 4pc: Cooldown reduction to Recklessness increased to 25 sec from 20 sec.
  • Arms 2pc: Chance to reset Mortal Strike increased to 100% from 60%
  • Protection 4pc: Bonus to Shield Barrier reduced from +200% to +100%.

Remember, these are changes to upcoming set bonuses, not pure class balance. The goal is for all set bonuses to be roughly comparable (with some variance given their vastly different nature) in power, and there were clear outliers on both sides of the spectrum. The changes above represent our effort to correct some of those outliers. If you feel your spec is underperforming currently, the answer is not for a specific overpowered set bonus to prop it up, nor is the reverse true.

If you feel that we missed the mark on changes based on your analysis of these specific bonuses, or that we may have overlooked some other bonuses that are also significantly too strong or too weak, we’d love to hear that feedback in this thread.

Patch 6.2 Armor Preview

Let’s have a look at the official new set for PVE and PVP. On the left you can see the Tier 18 PVE sets and on the right are the Warlords season 2 PVP sets.

Druid

druid
Now you know I love my druid but OMG what we’re they thinking, that’s about the ugliest helm we’ve seen yet!

Rogue

I don’t think the rogue set is bad at all. I kinda like it, especially the fell look which I’m sure I’ll never get myself.

Monk

monk
Plain, plain, plain, did I say plain?

Shaman

Could be worse …

Hunter

Yaa .. not impressed. No wonder so many hunters hate it.

Paladin

These remind of looking at stained glass windows for some odd reason.

Death Knight

deathknight
I think this set would better on the Warlock as a robe style of course.

Warrior

warrior
Nothing special …

Mage

mage
I think I dislike this set the most. I really hope this screenshot is much worse off than the actual armor.

Then again I hope that about all the T18 sets.

Priest

priest
I sorta like it .. yaa I think I really do like it!

Warlock

warlock
Here again I think with a pant style these should be the Death Knight armor set.

I don’t think any of the T18 are really stand out sets. What do you think?

Soaring Skyterror: Flying in Draenor

After all the backlash from the announcement that there would be no flying in Draenor period and most likely any following expansions Blizzard has relented and offered us a way to indeed fly in Draenor and maybe beyond.

Draenor Pathfinder is a new meta-achievement in 6.2 that rewards the Soaring Skyterror mount as well as the ability to fly in Draenor on all lvl 90+ characters in a slightly later minipatch.

Before 6.2 hits, you can get everything done except hitting Revered with the three new Tanaan Jungle factions. But you can build a Trading Post now, which provides a 20% reputation gain for all Draenor factions.

Draenor Pathfinder will be account-wide, so you can complete the following segments below on different characters!

Soaring Skyterror

Not sure what achievement criteria you have left for Draenor Pathfinder?

Simply go to http://wowhead.com/flying, hit Load Character, enter in character info, and see what you still have to complete! In 6.2, Tanaan reputation progress will be tracked as well.
