We’ve been quite busy the past few days, meaning we have not been able to do the daily news reporting. So instead here’s a round up of the news from the last few days!
Gaze of the Black Prince
The Gaze of the Black Prince buff has returned for 1 last time before Warlords of Draenor!
Beginning Tuesday, September 2 at 10:00 a.m. PDT, through Tuesday, September 16 at 9:00 a.m. PDT, we’ll be applying the Gaze of the Black Prince buff for the final time before the Warlords of Draenor expansion. This buff will increase the reputation gained with the Black Prince by 100%. It will also increase the chance of obtaining items from his foes needed as a part of the Legendary Cloak quest line including: the Secrets of the Empire, Sigil of Wisdom, Sigil of Power, or Titan Runestones.
Valor Point Removal
As we already knew, Valor Points and Item Upgrades are being removed in WoD. However in the short timespan between 6.0 and WoD launch you’ll be able to use your lesser coins to upgrade any of your MoP items that still need upgrading! Also the quest Test of Valor for the legendary cloak will be removed in 6.0.
As a couple posters have mentioned, we’re planning to remove the Test of Valor step from the Legendary chain.Regarding item upgrades, those are being converted to use Lesser Charms of Good Fortune as currency instead of Justice or Valor.
On a related note the quest for the raid bonus roll coins will no longer have it’s weekly restriction.
Most other things will become purchasable with gold, such as the heirlooms that currently require Justice Points!
On friday there will be a Live Q&A with Lead Game Designer Cory Stockton and Lead Narrative Designer Dave Kosak. This Q&A will focus more on story and garrisons and less on class design for example.
This Friday, September 5, at 10:00 a.m. PDT, Community Manager Josh “Lore” Allen sits down with Lead Game Designer Cory Stockton and Lead Narrative Designer Dave Kosak for a special Q&A where they’ll answer your questions live on Twitch.TV. They’ll be discussing topics such as the world design of Draenor, the new exciting activities you’ll be able to take part in, and a ton of information on the highly anticipated new Garrisons feature.
The event will take place this Friday, September 5 at 10:00 a.m. PDT on our Twitch.TV channel. If you’ve got a question you’d like to see answered, send us a tweet using the hashtag #WarlordsQA. We’ll see you there!
In Warlords tier tokens will work like the tokens on the timeless isle work right now! This means that you’ll be able to wear your new piece of gear much quicker!
