Another One Down, Only 37 More To Go!

Finally spent some time on horde side today, I left my tauren druid 6% shy of level 100. Finally she’s high enough to start gearing her for whatever. Like it will be nice to have her high enough to play with the kids again. I’ve kinda missed that, hint hint.

I was playing around with some screenshots I took while questing today and thought I would share them.

New Timewalking Rewards in 6.2.2 – Mounts

News from the nether is that a new currency is on the 6.2.2 horizon Timewarped Badge. New toys Hourglass of EternityWill of NorthrendMark of the Ashtongue, new mounts Reins of the Eclipse Dragonhawk and Bridle of the Ironbound Wraithcharger, and badge gear that now scales up to your character’s level. Each weekend event has unique rewards for example BC items are not available during the Wrath weekend event.

Reins of the Eclipse Dragonhawk – Captured from the renegade blood elves at Eclipse Point (Eclipsion Dragonhawk), these purple dragonhawks were often sought after by Scryers posted to the Sanctum of the Stars.

Bridle of the Ironbound Wraithcharger – Its ethereal spirit is barely contained by its iron shell. The penultimate creation of Salanar the Horseman, these powerful steeds were once thought to have all been destroyed.

  • New Timewalking items for Timewarped Badge are sold by Cupri in Shattrath, by the Terrace of Light. During the Wrath Timewalking Event, Auzin sells additional items in Dalaran.
  • Numbers not yet final, but currently on the PTR, bosses drop 125 Timewarped Badge while the final boss drops 200 Timewarped Badge.

Now I don’t know about you but that Bridle of the Ironbound Wraithcharger just made the top of my mount Wish List!! Get the full scoop at wowhead.com

 

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.

 

 

 

Tanaan Jungle Tour

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

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.
