8.1.5 News Blue Post:
We’re underway with the deployment of our first build of WoW 8.1.5 to our Public Test Realms. We expect it to be playable soon, and we want to start discussions about the features of the update that we’ll be testing:
• The Kul Tiran Allied Race unlock
• The Zandalari Allied Race unlock
• Naga invasion World Quests (possibly leadup to 8.2 content)
• New portal rooms in faction capitals
• The next chapter of pet battle Raiding with Leashes
• Warsong Gulch and Arathi Basin visual improvements
Our testing in this first build will be primarily technical, so some 8.1.5 features will be locked/unavailable for the first few days while we work on initial concerns:
• New War Campaign quests
• New quests and questlines focused on Magni, Hati, and the eight non-gathering primary Professions
• Warlords of Draenor Timewalking dungeons
• New Brawl in Arathi Basin vs. AI
• Wintergrasp coming to the Epic Battleground list
• New Brawler’s Guild update
• New Darkmoon Faire roller coaster
• New Micro-holidays and updates to Children’s Week
Additionally, you may see some features referenced in this PTR (such as Ashran as an Epic Battleground) that are not part of 8.1.5, but may be introduced in a later update. We’ll keep an eye out for such things and make sure to let you know what we aren’t testing in this PTR.
As always, thank you for your testing and feedback.
What We've Been Doing:
6 or 7 Paragon Caches. 300k profit on Rogue, AH woes, 4 hours spent doing mail and relisting Junk.
Paragon 7th Legion Toy : Rallying war Banner
Paragon Order of Embers Pet and Toy : Cobalt Raven Hatchling, Bewitching Tea Set
New mount : Bone-White Primal Raptor. Achievement “I’ve got 9999 Problems but a Bone-White Primal Raptor Ain’t One”
Grinding reps on All 3 Alts for 3 star recipes at revered. Incursions save my bacon...
Leveled a Goblin mage to 20 then boosted to farm rare mounts.
Timewalking x 5 = 12 leather transmogs, nice run, time walking badges as well. No Add-on, No meter, No vote Kick… 45 minute queue :( Usual pull shinanigans, Rogue sap broken on every pull, no recorded death on the 5 dungeon run, I still know my class. The quick and the dead, new tanks, same mechanics, who’s got the healer’s back, why is no one using battle rez? Tanking a mob away from the party to avoid the wipe. Nobody got kicked, yay!
3 star recipes for all enchanting… lucky on the rep grind this week. 4 quest double for incursion and line up to during 5 days, super super lucky, 7500 rep each time.
Crash and burn on 370 rewards, every slot from armor rewards from Emissary except
Cooking to 125 to free up a bag slot, the 2 star recipe and 3 star recipe for sanguine feast.
Important change that not everyone might have picked up on with 8.1:
The profession quests on DMF island now give skill points with the highest expansion you have learned.
Secrets of Skettis Discover the Arakkoa artifacts listed.
New Gnome Warlock is lvl 75, just before the show started.
Need to level Archaeology, because she’s a alchemist, it’s the only profession that’s (still) not separated into expansions. (Addon Spotlight)
Finished Silithus, Howling Fjord, Icecrown is next
Hope you all have had a great week. Here are my audios. This week I thought it would be appropriate to look into the very first anniversary of CAW for our Blast from the Past. Enjoy!
G'day Ctrl Alt Wow team!
Congratulations on your 600th episode!
You constant, enthusiastic, affirming, entertaining presence has been a true blessing to the WoW community.
Especially you Aprillian - you've been through so much over the years but you somehow find a way to put a smile on your face and share your goodness, and the joy of playing WoW, with everyone.
Thank you so much to you and to all of your awesome co-hosts :-)
Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at some of the most useful World of Warcraft addons out there.
Addon(s) of the week: Minimal Archaeology
Window to see progression on any type of artifact type.
Mouseover the entries in the list to see what the specific artifact is you are gonna solve currently.
History function of the addon is great to track the rare artifact completions.
TomTom integration with a button to create a waypoint to the nearest digsite.
