Ren:

Not played much in past couple weeks

Next projects: mechanical pets for hunter, Field Medic, Fisherfriends

Mike:

Started working on Field Medic. No bueno

cjracer20 in Discord suggested premades. Will do that soon™

Did not get into alpha this week yet. Ali couldn’t Monday, and then Wednesday turned into hell.

Been doing follower missions.

Mount and mog runs. Tailoring/enchanting finally at 800.

Went through old pics.

This Week in WoW

Mage Tower currently active on North American realms

Legion Timewalking this week. Pet Battle event next week

General News

Blizzard Balance can now be gifted – send a friend an electronic gift card with a personalized message

Remote Auction House: Blizzard confirmed in a blue message that the reason they closed the RAH is that a “tiny fraction of one percent” of their user base was actually using the RAH and it was not worth their time and effort anymore to keep it updated

Battle for Azeroth

In-Game Communities:

Quoting Wowhead: “This system will allow you to have broader communication options with fellow community members, including multiple text channels, text channel history, simple role management, quick join, voice integration, roster listing and calendar invites. You will be able to be part of multiple communities at the same time, in addition to your current guild.”

Interview at Pax East with lead designer Daniel Stahl and lead encounter designer Morgan Dey about Island Expeditions:

More intelligent AI in NPC encounters

Some AI groups may be aggressive – others may be passive and require you to chase them down

Weather improved and may be a factor

Different mobs may appear at different times of the day

“Fog of War”

Blizzard has confirmed people will still be able to get class mounts after BfA has launched

Tribute to last year’s BlizzCon Costume Contest winner Kazplay – when Horde invades the Stockades, they encounter a human female in a cage with a crumpled costume next to her: Text: “Look, it’s just a costume! See? Feel it! Now will you tell them to let me out of here? It was just a joke! Hogger wasn’t really terrorizing Stormwind!”

Alpha News:

Battle for Lordaeron scenario now playable on Alpha

Heart of Azeroth item levels show ranges with iLevel starting at 265 and going up one point per level from there. Highest they show is at level 300 with an iLevel of 564

Mag’har and Dark Iron Dwarves now playable in Alpha.

Maghar racials:

Ancestral Call – Invoke the spirits of your ancestors granting you their power. Increases a random secondary stat by 102 for 12 seconds.

Open Skies – Increases mounted speed by 10%.

Savage Blood – Reduces the duration of Poisons, Diseases, and Curses by 10%.

Sympathetic Vigor – Increases pet health by 10%.

Dark Iron Dwarves: still no reports on what the Mole Machine racial does

Blood Elf and Human racials seriously nerfed.

From the Discord: Bucket Lists

Expansion Countdown: 116 days to Expansion (3 months, 25 days / 16 weeks and 4 days / 2784 hours)

Congrats to

Alberthe for getting the Forgotten Hippogryph mount

Mightymurloc for the new Kara mount

Txcoolkid for finishing FIeld Medic

Suggests joining a Field Medic premade group, as did Cjracer20

It’s not a shared drop (personal loot) but since there is a lot of competition and in some areas the respawn is fast, you have a greater chance of being able to loot more mobs
