With today’s update to the Visions of N’Zoth PTR, testers can now experience the new affix coming to Mythic Keystone dungeons in Season 4.

When a Mythic Keystone dungeon is Corrupted, players will find obelisks throughout the dungeon that allow you to enter Ny’alotha and confront powerful servants of N’Zoth. With each obelisk, players must make a terrible choice, as all servants that are not killed will join the final boss encounter.

In order to test this quickly, PTR-only Keystone vendors have been placed Boralus and Dazar’alor. They sell customizable Keystones and scrolls that can be used to set the level and affixes of the Keystones.

  • Notably, Season 4 also has a change that we’re making to the Quaking affix. Now, players can no longer damage themselves with this effect, and damage to nearby allies is increased from 20% to 40% of maximum health.

Please reply to this forum thread with your feedback on the new affix, and thank you fo...

The bugfix to leash behavior of groups of enemies makes the game behave like it did in original WoW. We discovered the problem because of Solenor the Slayer, but it was a bug with all linked combat groups’ leashing behavior. The fix only affects linked combat groups with a leash timer, so there are still plenty of situations when you might attract the attention of multiple enemies and be able to split one off.

I’ve updated the Affliction section in the OP with recent new changes. It now reads:

  • Warlock
    • Affliction
      • Deathbolt now deals 20% of the total remaining damage of the Warlock’s damage over time effects on the target (was 30%).
      • Drain Soul damage increased by 50%.
      • Nightfall now increases the damage of Shadow Bolt by 50% (was 25%), and now activates 33% more often.
        • *Developers’ notes: One of the key concepts about Affliction Warlock is spreading damage over time spells on a number of different targets. While Deathbolt keys off these types of spells, it provides more-than-expected burst damage and outperforms the other two talents in every situation. In addition to reducing Deathbolt’s effectiveness, we’re improving the other two options to give more options to Affliction Warlocks.

Ready to make memories with your friends and share fantastic adventures with them across Azeroth and beyond? The new Recruit A Friend program is the perfect way to show them the ropes.

What’s New?

The new-and-improved Recruit A Friend (RAF) program retains fan-favorite features, and it introduces a bounty of new rewards—because Azeroth is best experienced with friends at your side. Just like the previous program, you can teleport to each other with Friend-to-Friend Summoning (which works on a 30 minute cooldown) and receive 50% bonus experience when partied together.

More Recruits, More Rewards

Updated the OP with the latest.

We’ve implemented a bugfix this week that should now be live in this region.

  • Fixed a bug that caused creatures such as Solenor the Slayer to misbehave when pursuing the player. Groups of creatures that commit to combat as a group will now all continue to pursue whenever any one of them are struck by a player attack or ability.

Solenor the Slayer should no longer reset if the player strikes the adds that he summons while he’s rooted, or if the player strikes Solenor himself. And now, if you aggro one of a group of creatures in any zone, and then you keep occasionally hitting any one of them, the whole group will follow you across the zone.

From the original patch notes in 2005:

“When the decorations of Hallow’s End light up Azeroth’s cities, you know there’s mischief afoot! Seek special vendors in Orgrimmar or Ironforge and get your hands on treats! Aid a sick orphan in a little trick-or-treating! Darkcaller Yanka, attending the Forsaken’s Wickerman Festival, and Sergeant Hartman of Southshore are seeking your aid in keeping the enemy out of their holiday affairs - are you up to the challenge?”

Hallow’s End will . . . end on November 2.

Even ends on November 1 so there is still plenty of time to get things done.

This thread isn’t specific to one Assault, but about the Assaults in general. We are open to any thoughts you have but here are some examples to keep in mind:

  • How do they feel?
  • Did you have fun?
  • How clear are the objectives?
  • Are they rewarding?
  • Are the daily quests that are paired with them providing enough variety?
