New Silence Penalty Coming to World of Warcraft

World of Warcraft offers many opportunities to engage with other players in a variety of ways and to help support positive experiences in these engagements we wanted to inform you of a new silence penalty we will be implementing with the pre-expansion patch for Legion. Depending on the type of report, players who are found to be abusive in chat or engage in inappropriate chat behaviors may be silenced from engaging in certain ways within the game.

The Silence Penalty

Following the Legion pre-expansion, any player who is reported multiple times under the Spam or Abusive Chat categories will, after investigation, receive an account-wide silence penalty. While this penalty is active, the silenced player will find that their ability to chat with others is greatly limited.

Silenced Players Are Unable to:

  • Talk in Instnce Chat (Raid, Party, and Battlegrounds)
  • Talk in global channels that are auto joined (such as General or Trade)
  • Create Calendar Invites/Events
  • Send in-game mail
  • Send Party Invitations
  • Send War Game Invitations
  • Send Invitations to Duel
  • Update a Premade Group Listing
  • Create a New List for a Premade Group

Silenced Players Are Able to:

  • Whisper to friends (both WoW friends and Battle.net Friends)
  • Reply to Whispers from Non-friends
  • Party/Raid Chat (with Invited Players)
  • Create Parties and Raids
  • Talk in Global Channels that have a moderator
  • Share Quests
  • Sign up for a pre-made group

The first time a player is silenced, their chat will be restricted for 24 hours. This duration will double for each silence penalty received after the first, and there is no maximum. This means that players who receive multiple silence penalties may find themselves unable to chat for a very, very long time.

Silenced players will be receiving a notification when attempting to send a message to a channel in which they have been restricted.

By using the in-game report tool to identify players who may be engaging in inappropriate interactions within the various channels, you’ll be helping create the type of community we all want to take part in.

Legion: Major Change Coming For The Trait “Treasure Hunter”

world-of-warcraft-treasure-hunter-1

Alpha is still going strong on the test realms. A result of build all Blizzard weeks working hard! In the build 21,134 deployed that night, an important change was made on the trait “Treasure Hunter” subjects of Garrison.

Indeed it no longer grants 100% more gold but stronghold of resources instead (Extreme Scavenger). It is a change not without consequence from Blizzard since there will be no way to maximize the missions with gold as a reward. If this time the developers have not justified this change, no doubt he would provide a response in the coming days.

Keep in mind that this change is not necessarily final. And you what do you think of this change?

Legion: more information on professions

At BlizzCon, developers had announced availability of the beta before the end of the year. Last night the first build Legion appeared on Blizzard servers., the following information may therefore prove inaccurate because they were taken from the game files. Just as nothing is set in stone and that everything can change overnight.

Tooltips on objects only work in some cases, as many names of objects and spells are temporary.

With this first patch, I am pleased to announce a long series of articles to come in the weeks since all this will evolve to exit the game. If you wish to learn more about new models as , raids, maps and others, I invite you to go on Wowhead and MMO-Champion.

Overview

  • It seems that there is more revenue casting time.
  • The course to reach the trades is 800 points.
  • As announced at BlizzCon, recipes now have ranks (1 to 3 stars).

Alchemy

Great battle cauldrons are back, they allowed the time to combine several bottles into a cauldron (like the Big Cauldron of Battle). Each member of the raid could be used after in to have his own bottle.
The new grant vials 400 to one of your characteristic, as the Flask of the Pact Whispered or Flask of the Seventh Demon.

Blacksmithing

The new boss Leystone Hoofplates, you’ll be able to increase the speed of your 20% mount. This effect does not work in Arena or Battleground. The forge is now operating under the new rand system, you have rows of bosses 1,2 or 3.
You can forge a set of 8 pieces of armor.

Enchantment

The enchantment adopt the same model as Warlords of Draenor, you have to ring enchants, cloak and neck. Some ring enchantments will bring up your side creatures helping you fight your enemies.

Engineering

Dozens of new gadgets are available. For now we only have the names of objects created no effect.

Herbalism

As at the time of Buring Crusade, some plants have cosmetic effects. Here at this time the names of various plants:

  • Aethril
  • Dreamleaf
  • Foxflower
  • Fjarnskaggl
  • Starlight Rose
  • felwort

The ranking system allows you to increase efficiency. Rank 1 lets you pick faster, rank 2 may grant you rare components while the rand 3 allows you to get more plants in each collection.

Calligraphy

As announced in my previous article, the major glyphs disappear. Minor glyphs can increase a specific fate against a Boss. Most often the glyph increases by 10% a lot against a specific boss.

Jewellery

Prospecting has returned to Legion with new gems:

  • skystone
  • Deep Ambe
  • Azsunite
  • Queen’s Opal
  • Maelstrom Sapphire
  • Shadowruby

Leatherworking

You can make accessories for your pets, leashes, mat or bed Again we find this system of ranks 3 in the design of objects. No details yet.

Mining

Just like herbalism, mining, according to the ranks will increase the number of minerals and components.

Skinning

Like the mining and herbalism, work Leather allows you to increase the number of pelts harvested.

Tailoring

The new Legion fabric is called Skillweave, and early indications we could again create folders.

Secondary Professions

Little information on secondary jobs, we have new bandages. In fishing, the craft looks more dynamic, you will catch strange Murlocs after your hook!

Legion: No More Gold Limit

Update April 26, 2016: We’ve heard from developers, the limit per person will be 9,999,999 gold. It concerns the characters, banks, transactions, auctions in the auction house, etc.

Blizzard has decided to change the limit of gold per character. Remember the release of Cataclysm, the historical limits of 214,000 gold had given way to that of 999 999 gold.

Today with mounts and services offered always more expensive, it became tedious to transfer the gold between characters.

In practice this will profoundly change the prices at the auction of the Black Market since they will not be limited to 999 999 gold and the price war will flare.

For other services such as the sale of services and goods between players (Mounts, PL raids, etc.), it will mainly Blizzard to act effectively to scam the seller. GMs will not have to watch all the gold movements performed on the character, but only the final transaction.

A question remains: but what is this new limit? … I have yet not the answer! Only a few screenshots available on the Internet showing the amounts to just over 2.4 million golds. We bet that Blizzard brings us an answer quickly!

Druid Leveling Guide

Once you have created your Death Knight you will see that you have no talent points yet. That can be quite weird for a level 55 character but you shouldn’t worry. The quests in and around the Ebon Hold will all give you talent points. But how exactly should you use these to level up your Death Knight really fast?

Well, that’s what this guide is about. I will explain which talent build is nice and for what reason.

To start with I must say that the Death Knight is a great class that has nice abilities like a pet, great damaging spells, plate armor and heavy normal attacks. The talent trees are Blood, Frost, and Unholy.

What you are looking for while leveling is a build that allows you to continue fighting and speed you up in any other way possible. That’s the reason why I say that a Blood/Unholy build would be the best for leveling. Assuming that you will level solo, I have made the following build and you will see that this build is great for solo leveling:

Death Knight Leveling Guide

Let’s start with the Blood talents. Butchery is just great for leveling and should be taken no matter which build you decide to make if you want to level fast. Then you got some nice talents that improve your damage and then you see Rune Tap and the Improved Rune Tap talent. This is one of those talents that will keep you going because it will restore your HP. Then you have Vendetta, Mark of Blood, Blood Worms, Blood Aura, and Vampiric Blood that will also help you to keep your hit points up. With all these talents you basically can’t die while leveling.

With Hysteria, Hearth Strike, Might of Mograine, Blood Gorged and Dancing Rune Weapon you will have great damaging abilities.

The reason you should focus on Unholy a bit as well is that you will become a bit more effective when it comes to AoE damage with Morbidity and Corpse Explosion. Then you have a 5% Dodge chance through Anticipation and some extra stats from Shadow of Death. The reduced cooldown on Death Grip is also very handy. Last but definitely not least is On a Pale Horse. This talent is great for leveling and will reduce your traveling time. A side effect of this nice leveling talent is that your stun and fear effects will be reduced by 20%.

Altogether you can say that this build will keep you going because of all the health gaining abilities the Blood tree has to offer. The Blood tree also has a few nice damaging abilities while the Unholy tree adds a bit of AoE damage and reduces your traveling time. Nice thing about this talent tree is that you are also capable to deal with opponents in PvP situations, which is especially nice on PvP realms.
