10/19/2017 01:51 PMPosted by Ðrdoom TL:DR why is the dev team making changes and not telling players or the gm's for a 14 day once a year event?


Sorry for the miscommunication, but we actually didn't change anything regarding to how its obtained. The mount has only ever dropped from the Epic Loot-Filled Pumpkin, and we've only ever raised the window that the epic one is obtained in to the current expansion level gap.
10/18/2017 02:40 PMPosted by Truebow So I found a small problem. I can't find it...

The LFR que is not working, and Donjon Rade Sr. is only offering to send me to The Seat of the Triumvirate dungeon


Hey Truebow,

I just double checked the PTR data and Forbidden Descent was active on all of the servers. I also noticed that a group was actively in the zone. Could you elaborate on the issue that you were seeing? What server were you seeing this on? What was the error message when you moused over Forbidden Descent in the Raid Finder queue?

Thanks!
Maybe Innkeepers didn't think ahead of time that opening an inn on the Broken Shore would be a good inn-vestment.

If you're still having difficulties accessing the game, let me know if you see a particular error message. Ty!

Appreciate you sharing this. For this reason, we strongly discourage anyone from buying (and selling) accounts.

Apologies for the delay - previous to today's maintenance, not to my knowledge. NA Maint has concluded, EU maint schedule is listed here.

Greetings all,
PTR realms will be coming down so we can deploy a new 7.3.2 build. No ETA for today's push but I'll update this thread if things look like they're going to take longer than usual (~3-4 hours).

I'll leave this thread open for discussion so long as conversations remain civil and adhere to forum guidelines.

Thanks for your patience everyone!

I'd also add that it won't hurt for OP to try and find someone to recruit them so they can get the in-game benefits.

Wednesday, October 18th - Friday, October 20th

Forbidden Descent - Raid Finder Antorus, the Burning Throne
13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)

Friday, October 20th

Varimathras - Mythic Antorus, the Burning Throne
13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)

Aggramar - Mythic Antorus, the Burning Throne
14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)

Hope's End - Raid Finder Antorus, the Burning Throne
15:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)

Hope's End Raid Finder will remain open over the weekend.

As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a PTR environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.

Q: How do I get into the raid zone?

A: In Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade Sr. in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)

Q: What character should I use to test the raid?

A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 110 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.

Q: How long does testing last?

A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.
10/16/2017 03:00 PMPosted by Thecheat Is Aman'thul's intended to only have an Intellect proc as its secondary empowerment? Considering the value of any variant of Arcanocrystal to more than just Intellect classes, this seems like a massive oversight.


That might be a tooltip issue either on the PTR or on your client side but it should change depending on whatever your primary stat is.

As much as a Warrior might like to be smarter with that proc it just wouldn't exactly help.

If you're getting the buff as Intellect please let us know so we can get that fixed!

10/16/2017 02:40 PMPosted by Ythisens While it won't function in Mythic+ we did change the six requirement so you only need four unique buffs to trigger the Pantheon secondary proc inside Antorus. You can have any possible combination of the unique five to activate this additional proc. Aman'Thul's Vision ignores the rule as a "wildcard" filling any gap that you might be missing from the other five.

So for example you can have two Aman'Thul's and two of the other uniques and it will trigger the Pantheon proc.

Keep in mind we're still tweaking and making changes to the trinkets so please keep voicing your feedback about it :)


I'd like to point out that Aman'Thuls does not function this way currently on the PTR, the only thing special is its starting ilevel. Only four Pantheon trinket procs of any kind need to overlap to trigger empowerment. I've tested this multiple times, using various combinations as well as four of the same trinket.

Here's a log using all Khaz'goroth's Courage (Str) to trigger empowerment:

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/1yT9Cbq4cRYnarPz#fight=1&type=auras&pins=0%24Separate%24%23244F4B%24auras-gained%240%240.0.0.Any%240.0.0.Any%24true%240.0.0.Any%24false%24256826%5E0%24Separate%24%23909049%24auras-gained%240%240.0.0.Any%240.0.0.Any%24true%240.0.0.Any%24false%24256835

I'd love clarification on whether or not this is intentional though.


Currently all of the trinkets on PTR behave like Aman'Thul's Vision does in the Pantheon proc but will be changed to be unique before it goes live, other than Aman'Thul's which will stay as a wild card.

Still as always subject to change but that's the current plan.

10/16/2017 01:16 PMPosted by Akeelà Well since you cant have 6 people in M+.... id say no.

Ah, wasn't aware all 6 were needed for the proc trigger. Thanks for clearing that up snarky pants.

Hey guys,

A slightly different discussion here, but just popping in with a note that the secondary Equip effect on the Antorus trinkets that note "When empowered by the Pantheon...", such as 'Aman'Thul's Grandeur' on Aman'Thul's Vision or 'Khaz'goroth's Shaping' on Khaz'goroth's Courage will only function within the Antorus raid once it is live.

Currently on the PTR this effect works outside of the raid, but its worthwhile to offer some clarification so there's no confusion once the raid itself is live.

If you have any questions on this, let me know!
D’ici la fin de l’année, nous changerons les prix de Blizzard Battle.net® pour les passer de l’USD (dollar américain) aux monnaies locales pour le Canada, le Japon et la Nouvelle-Zélande. Nous sommes impatients de déployer ce changement ! Il s’agit d’une étape clé dans la croissance mondiale de nos services qui permettra aux joueurs de ces pays d’effectuer leurs achats et de gérer leurs comptes plus facilement.

Dès que ce changement sera effectif, la monnaie locale sera utilisée pour indiquer les prix dans Battle.net et à travers les autres boutiques Blizzard. Il en sera de même pour le porte-monnaie Blizzard que les joueurs de ces régions ont sur leur compte : nous convertirons leur solde en monnaie locale. Les abonnements World of Warcraft® en cours ne seront en revanche pas affectés et continueront à utiliser l’USD. Toutefois, les nouveaux abonnements, renouvellements d’abonnement et les cartes de temps de jeu prépayées seront proposés en monnaie locale.

Bien que nous n’ayons pas encore arrêté de date précise, le changement dans ces pays devrait avoir lieu d’ici la fin de l’année. Suite à cela, les prix de tous les produits et les soldes des porte-monnaie Blizzard seront convertis de l’USD à la monnaie locale en s’appuyant sur le taux de change des grands marchés boursiers du monde.

Pour les joueurs de Nouvelle-Zélande, les prix incluront la GST (Good and Services Tax).

Nous faisons tout notre possible pour que nos joueurs à travers le monde se sentent chez eux dans l’écosystème de Blizzard, peu importe leur lieu de connexion. Nous tenons également à ce que faire vos achats avec nous soit simple et évident. Passer aux monnaies locales est une étape clé pour atteindre ces objectifs. Certains de nos clients pourront ainsi éviter de payer des frais de transaction inutiles facturés par les banques et les instituts financiers. Par ailleurs, ce changement nous permettra également de diversifier les moyens de paiement autorisés, puisque certains nous étaient interdits du fait de l’utilisation de l’USD.

Nous préviendrons officiellement nos joueurs au Canada, au Japon et en Nouvelle-Zélande dès que le passage aux monnaies locales sera officiellement effectif. D’ici là, nous vous avons préparé une courte F.A.Q. pour vous fournir de plus amples informations au sujet de ce futur changement.

Later this year, we’ll be changing pricing on Blizzard Battle.net® from USD to local currency in Canada, Japan, and New Zealand. We’re excited to introduce the change. It’s a key step toward growing our service globally and making it easier for players in these regions to shop and manage their accounts with us.

Once this change takes effect, local currency will be used for pricing across Battle.net and within all of Blizzard’s game shops. The same goes for any Blizzard Balance that players in these regions have stored with us, which will convert over to their local currency. Existing recurring World of Warcraft® subscriptions will not be affected and will continue using USD. However, any new or renewed subscriptions and pre-paid Game Time cards will be offered in their local currency.

While we haven’t finalized the exact date, the switch in these regions is currently slated to take effect before the end of this year. At that time, all product pricing and any stored Blizzard Balance will be converted from USD to the local currency based on the rate provided by one of the major exchanges.

For players in New Zealand, pricing will be inclusive of Goods and Services Tax (GST).

We want to make as many of our players as possible feel at home in the Blizzard ecosystem, regardless of where they’re logging in from. We also want to make shopping with us seamless and easy. Switching to local currencies is a key step toward achieving this. Some of our customers will be able to avoid paying unnecessary transaction fees charged by banks and financial institutions. Furthermore, this change will also help us expand the types of payment we can accept, allowing us to add payment methods that we previously couldn’t offer because of their restrictions on transacting in USD.

We’ll provide an update for our players in Canada, Japan, and New Zealand once we formally make the switch to their local currencies. In the meantime, we’ve put together a brief FAQ to provide you with more information on the coming changes.
