Timewalking Mage Tower disponibile per i test sul PTR da domani
Proseguono incessantemente i lavori di Blizzard sul reame Pubblico di Prova in vista del rilascio della patch 9.1.5, con i devs che hanno da poco annunciato l’ormai imminente apertura, seppur per un tempo limitato, della timewalking mage tower.
Uno dei contenuti più importanti della prossima patch sarà quindi disponibile per circa 24 ore, dal 21 fino al prossimo 22 Ottobre, come segnalato dal community manager Linxy in un post nel forum ufficiale.
Sempre nel PTR segnaliamo poi anche i cambiamenti che hanno riguardato l’achievement Available in Eight Colors, e quelli relativi all’oggetto Timebound Ruminations. Infatti, il primo è ufficialmente diventato un achiev account-wide, che ci garantirà tutte le varie versioni di colore per la cavalcatura Mechanocat X-995 a tutti i personaggi del nostro account.
Il secondo invece, il Timebound Ruminations, ora ci permetterà di portare al livello 30 un nostro companion invece dei 5000 punti esperienza. Andiamo a vedere tutti i dettagli delle note, allegando poco in basso anche i dettagli diffusi dai devs riguardo la nuova fase di testing per la Season of Mastery di WoW Classic.
Ecco le note ufficiali:
- Available in Eight Colors – This Achievement is now account-wide and grants all color options for the X-995 Mechanocat mount to all characters on your account.
Dungeons and Raids
- New: Legion Timewalking
- Timewalking Mage Tower
- Testing of this feature will be available for 24 hours, starting October 21 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. Visit this forum thread 15 for submitting your feedback on this feature.
- Timewalking Mage Tower
- New: Legion Timewalking
Items and Rewards
- Timebound Ruminations – Set an Adventures companion to level 30. Requires one companion to reach level 40. Cannot be used on companions level 30 and above (was grants 5000 experience points directly to a Adventures companion of your choice). (This change will be available in a later PTR build)
- Developers’ note: After reading player feedback feeling that the Anima cost was too high for the amount of companion experience granted, we made changes to the item to set the companion to level 30 instead. The original design of the item was intended to be a supplemental augment to get companions through very low levels quickly, and not to be replacement for interacting with the system. Upon further inspection after player feedback, we agree that cost was too high for 5000 XP and made the changes to be a level boost to 30 instead.
The Season of Mastery Beta is back online for testing with the following updates:
- Test characters can now be leveled to 60.
- The “Adventure Awaits” buff now grants an additional experience bonus to Dungeon quests and quests flagged as Elite.
- High Elf Watchers have made an appearance in the Ironforge Library and Undercity Apothecarium, seeking to chronicle those who bear a “Soul of Iron”.
- World Buffs such as Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer, Warchief’s Blessing, and many others will now be removed inside of raid instances.
- The Debuff limit on enemy units is no longer capped at 16.
- Significantly less experience is now awarded to players who kill a creature while in a group with one or more players who are at a much higher level than the creature that was slain.
- The Looking For Group tool from Burning Crusade Classic is now present in the Season of Mastery.
- Adjustments have been made to some dungeon enemies:
- Stratholme – All Undead creatures in Stratholme will now gain an immunity to snares 30 seconds after entering combat and gain immunity to roots after an additional 30 seconds of combat.
- Maraudon – Many creatures in Maraudon will gain an immunity to snares 30 seconds after entering combat and gain immunity to roots after an additional 30 seconds of combat.
- Mauradon – 30 seconds after gaining immunity to root effects, enemies gain 50% increased movement speed.
- Maraudon and Stratholme – Any type of crowd control (except snares or roots) will reset the snare immunity, root immunity, and speed buffs.
- Zul’Farrak – Zombie Trolls in Zul’Farrak now drop fewer lucrative treasures. Most of the loot previously dropped by Zombie Trolls has been redistributed to other enemies in the dungeon.
- Adjustments have been made to enemies in Onyxia’s Lair and Molten Core:
- All creatures have had their health increased.
- Several mechanics that were removed in early versions of original World of Warcraft have been restored to certain bosses in both raids.
- Developers’ notes: The adjustments to XP while in an overpowered group, along with gameplay tweaks in Stratholme and Maraudon are the first round of changes meant to curtail “boosting” or “powerleveling” of low-level characters in Season of Mastery. These changes should be largely invisible to groups who complete this content at an appropriate level with an appropriate group composition, while making many methods of kiting, gathering, and killing large groups of enemies much more precarious and inefficient. Please note that in Stratholme and Maraudon, the auras that grant immunity to slows and roots can also be reset if a creature is afflicted by a “hard” CC such as a Polymorph or Shackle Undead.
In addition to the changes above, we are planning to open Molten Core and Onyxia’s Lair on Thursday, October 21 at 2:00 p.m. PDT for raid testing. To facilitate that, we will make level 60 character templates in Rare quality dungeon gear available on Thursday morning, before the raids become available.
