  1. Greetings, players! With Dragonflight here, it is time to access the content of Season 1. As announced in the Expansion Release post, most content will be available alongside Season 1 and released on Monday 18th, at 10:00 (server time). In this post, we will enter details and specifics about the content that will be unlocked now. Therefore, we will avoid explaining what we've already explained before and will mainly specify the new Season 1 content that will be available. Here we go! RAID - VAULT OF THE INCARNATES This raid will finally open its doors, and all eight bosses will be available to be challenged! Each boss will use different mechanics and will have unique complexities, making each boss encounter unique. While all of them will be available since the release of Season 1, the Mythic mode will not be implemented until mid-late January, giving players about one month to conquer the entire raid on the other difficult modes. The bosses on the raid will follow the next order, from left to right: From that list, we can distinguish three different types of bosses: The first four bosses (Eranog, Primal Council, Terros and Sennarth), Wing Bosses (Dathea, Ascended and Kuros Grimtotem) and the Final Bosses (Broodkeeper Diurna and Raszageth). The bosses follow the next loot table: Difficult Bosses 1 - 4 Wing Bosses Final Bosses Raid Finder 376 382 385 Normal 389 395 398 Heroic 402 408 411 Mythic* 415 421 424 *Note: Mythic mode will be available in mid-late January. All the remaining information about the raid (additional rewards, transmog sets, unique items) can be seen here. MYTHIC+ DUNGEONS Season 1 starts the seasonal affix Thundering, a new 8 Mythic+ dungeon pool rotation and an increase in item level rewards. We are going to mention them here briefly: As we specified before, the 8 Mythic+ dungeon pool of this season will be the following ones: Algeth'ar Academy (Dragonflight) (Mythic+ guide) Ruby Life Pools (Dragonflight) (Mythic+ guide) The Azure Vault (Dragonflight) (Mythic+ guide) The Nokhud Offensive (Dragonflight) (Mythic+ guide) Temple of the Jade Serpent (Mists of Pandaria) (Mythic+ guide) Halls of Valor (Legion) (Mythic+ guide) Court of Stars (Legion) (Mythic+ guide) Shadowmoon Burial Grounds (Warlords of Draenor) (Mythic+ guide) The affix rotation will be as follows: Week # Affix 1 (Level 2+) Affix 2 (Level 4+) Affix 3 (Level 7+) Seasonal Affix (Level 10+) 1 Fortified Raging Quaking Thundering 2 Tyrannical Bursting Grievous Thundering 3 Fortified Sanguine Volcanic Thundering 4 Tyrannical Raging Storming Thundering 5 Fortified Spiteful Grievous Thundering 6 Tyrannical Sanguine Explosive Thundering 7 Fortified Bolstering Storming Thundering 8 Tyrannical Spiteful Quaking Thundering 9 Fortified Bursting Explosive Thundering 10 Tyrannical Bolstering Volcanic Thundering Finally, the item-level loot table will be as follows: Keystone Level End of Dungeon Ilvl Great Vault Reward* 2 376 382 3 376 385 4 379 385 5 379 389 6 382 389 7 385 392 8 385 395 9 389 395 10 392 398 11 392 402 12 392 405 13 392 408 14 395 408 15 398 411 16 398 415 17 402 415 18 402 418 19 405 418 20 405 421 *Note: The first Great Vault reward will be available 1 week after the Season 1 start (on December 25th!). During this season, the following achievements and rewards will be active: Dragonflight Keystone Explorer: Season One: Attain a Mythic+ Rating of at least 750 during Dragonflight Season One. Dragonflight Keystone Conqueror: Season One: Attain a Mythic+ Rating of at least 1500 during Dragonflight Season One. Title reward: The Thundering. Dragonflight Keystone Master: Season One: Attain a Mythic+ Rating of at least 2000 during Dragonflight Season One. Mount reward: Hailstorm Armoredon. Dragonflight Keystone Hero: Season One: Attain a Mythic+ Rating of at least 2500 during Dragonflight Season One. Item reward: Gleaming Incarnate Thunderstone There will also be specific achievements and rewards when beating a Mythic+ level 20 or higher dungeon within the time limit: you will get the Keystone Hero achievement for that dungeon and a Teleport to the instance directly! Check this link for more specific information about the Mythic+ dungeons this season (like detailed class guides and dungeon guides). PRIMAL STORMS AND WORLD BOSSES The Primal Storms will be the primary way to get PvE gear before adventuring on dungeons, raids, or trying to take down World Bosses. It will allow players to adventure in periodic Open World events, take down enemies, and get currencies to buy and upgrade gear. Elemental Overflow (the main currency that drops from Primal Invasion) from almost all mobs in the invasion. Elemental Overflow purchases the Rare quality (ilvl 359) gear from invasions. Storm Sigil (a weekly currency) can be obtained once per type of invasion per week. Storm Sigils are used to upgrade Rare-quality invasion gear into Epic quality gear (ilvl385). You may check this guide for more information about Primal Storms. World Bosses will be the next step to getting more powerful gear. They will follow a weekly rotation in which only one boss will be available each time: Basrikron (The Waking Shores) → Strunraan (Ohn'ahran Plains) → Bazual (The Azure Span) → Liskanoth (Thaldraszus). The gear obtained from each boss will be limited. All the pieces will be ilvl 395. Each boss will drop one piece of equipment of each type and an extra one (5 in total): World Boss Cloth Leather Mail Plates Extra Basrikron Belt of Living Earth Stony Cragwalkers Petrified Bracelets Hardened Shale Breastplate Earthspeaker's Brooch Strunraan Stormshale Cuffs Tights of Twisting Winds Storm Chaser's Waistguard Striders of the Sky's Misery Static-Charged Scale Bazual Magmatic Vestments Cinderfang Wrap Basalt Brood Stompers Shackles of the Dreaded Flame Smoldering Sulfuron Signet Liskanoth Frozen Footwraps Glacial Bindings Horns of the Futurebane Icebound Girdle Frosted Scale Drape There's more specific information about each boss, locations, attacks, etc... in this guide. CRIMSON GLADIATOR PvP SEASON The PvP Season 1, Crimson Gladiator, and the ranking will officially start for Arenas, Rated Battlegrounds, and Solo Queue. Since the entire Season is linked with the 3 mechanics, we will describe each mechanic and mention item ilvls, costs and rewards, and all possible achievements. However, remember that the Seasonal Gladiator rewards will be adjusted once the Season ends to match the total number of players who participated in it and the maximum rating achieved during the season. First, players can get Drakebreaker Gear in Valdrakken this season using Bloody Tokens. These tokens will be obtained automatically by having Warmode on and doing World Quests after reaching level 70. This is the most basic PvP gear with custom PvP bonuses and two, four and six-piece sets. The pieces have base ilvl 366. The Drakebreaker Gear pieces can be upgraded to ilvl 385 using Trophy of Strife, a currency type of item that can be earned doing one of the four Sparks of Life quests delivered by various NPCs. The following gear would be the Honor gear. This gear can be purchased using Honor, obtained from any PvP activity. Honor gear has a base item level of 340 (scaled up to 411 in PvP), and the base item level can be upgraded using Honor: Armor Slot Purchase (ilvl 340) Rank 2 (ilvl 346) Rank 3 (ilvl 353) Rank 4 (ilvl 359) Rank 5 (ilvl 366) Helm, Chest, Legs 875 500 625 1000 1250 Shoulders, Gloves, Feet 700 400 500 800 1000 Cloaks, Bracers, Rings, and Belt 525 300 400 600 750 One-Hand Weapons 875 500 625 1000 1250 Gladiator Trinkets 525 300 375 600 750 DPS Trinkets 700 400 500 800 1000 Two-Hand Weapons 1750 1000 1250 2000 2500 Off-Hands 425 250 300 500 625 Finally, the best PvP gear would be the Conquest one. The primary source of Conquest is winning rated arenas and battlegrounds. There is a weekly Conquest cap of 550, which is raised by 550 every week. To purchase the gear, you will need the following Conquest points: Armor Slot Conquest to purchase Two-Hand weapons 1800 One-Hand weapons 900 to 1350 Helm, Chest, and Legs 875 Shoulders, Gloves, and Feet 700 Trinkets (DPS) 700 Trinkets (Gladiator) 525 Cloaks, Bracers, Rings, and Belt 500 Off-Hands Weapons 450 Despite the gear costing Conquest to be purchased, it will then cost Honor to be upgraded. The base item level will be 382 (upgradeable with Honor points) and will scale up to ilvl 424 in PvP (the highest ilvl during the Season). To upgrade the Conquest gear, you need a specific seasonal arena rating as requirement: Upgrade level Rating Requirement 1 -> 2 Combatant I (1000) 3 Combatant II (1200) 4 Challenger I (1400) 5 Challenger II (1600) 6 Rival I(1800) 7 Rival II(1950) 8 Duelist (2100) 9 Elite (2400) Finally, there will be a weekly arena rotation to ensure that players have a plan of what arenas they could encounter and strategies for them. The rotation will be as follows: Pool A Pool B Pool C Nagrand Arena Nagrand Arena Nagrand Arena Dalaran Arena Ruins of Lordaeron Hook Point The Tiger's Peak The Tiger's Peak Tol'viron Arena Enigma Crucible Empyrean Domain Ashamane's Fall Empyrean Domain Blade's Edge Arena The Robodrome Ashamane's Fall Maldraxxus Coliseum Mugambala Maldraxxus Coliseum Black Rook Hold Arena Enigma Crucible Nokhudon Proving Grounds Nokhudon Proving Grounds Nokhudon Proving Grounds There will be rewards for the season's top players when Season 1 ends and we move to the next one. As we said before, we cannot specify how many players for each tier will win, primarily since most achievements and rewards are obtained during the season and not at the end. New Gladiator title: Crimson Gladiator (and achievement Crimson Gladiator: Dragonflight Season 1). New Solo Queue title: Crimson Legend (and achievement Crimson Legend: Dragonflight Season 1). New Gladiator mount: Crimson Gladiator's Drake (and achievement Crimson Gladiator's Drake). Unique Dragonriding appearance: Highland Drake: Embodiment of the Crimson Gladiator. Unique Gladiator weapon illusion and pennant. New Gladiator Tabard: Crimson Gladiator's Tabard. New Gladiator cloak: Crimson Gladiator's Prestigious Cloak. New Vicious mounts: Vicious Sabertooth for the alliance and Vicious Sabertooth for the horde. If you need more information about the PvP season, you may watch the following pages: Overview and class guides. Gear sellers, types and bonuses.

  3. Hello, Title says it all. "LF 2v2" etc Why spam World Chat? Premade Groups - Arena doesn't work or?
  4. Greetings, there is currently an issue on your WoD server where it says "There is no connection to the cross-server" whenever anybody tries to queue 2v2,3v3,bg,rbg or anything. We cannot even send tickets to GMs. I see nobody has reported this issue but funnily enough players have enough time to report players, sad times we live in. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hello, I have just returned back to FS after taking a break from BFA, I am trying to dive into SL now and looking to start a class I have not played yet. I decided to go with Shaman and was wondering what would be the best PVP spec for the current patch between ele and enhance. I plan on being a healer mostly but as an offspec in case I want to play DPS in PVP i would like to a spec that would be a good alternative. I have been taking a look online but I not getting any real information on patch 9.0.5 on shamans. Any recommendations between both ele and enhance? Thanks for the advice!
  6. My friend and I want to do some 2v2s but my ilvl on my main is 395 and his is 370. If I were to do 2v2s with him with a alt item set at 370 as well, will the LFG R Arenas use the overall average ilvl (including bags and bank) when selecting teams (e.g. selecting based off ilvl 395 if I put my current equipped in the bank instead of my alt set of 370)? Or since I switch to my 370 alt set and he is 370 normally, LFG will pick teams that are around the 370 range? or its based on whatever team queued for 2v2s and ilvl doesn't matter? I read about the ilvl scaling on the other forums about the overall average and what it includes so I don’t think that what I am asking will work but wanted to get some insight in case I was missing something.

If you would like to talk more about it with me about the idea, please feel free to shoot me a message either on here or on discord. Reedpriest#1003

  24. Greymane: Update on Gurubashi Arena Hi everyone ! About 3 months ago, we released the Legion PVP realm Greymane, and now is the time to look back on those 3 months. A central place of this realm is the Gurubashi arena, a “free for all” battle ring where everyone, Horde and Alliance can fight each others without restrictions. We took your requests into consideration, and that’s why quickly after the realm was released, we disabled grouping in Gurubashi. Analysis What we can see now, is that the Gurubashi arena is a place where usebugs are being exploited by a lot of people, making it difficult for players not abusing them to have fun there. The major usebugs found are: Staying close to the stairs Staying on the edge of the battle ring Using spells that allow you to have a “get out of jail” free card Even though those issues were or are still being present on retail pvp servers, we believe it could be interesting to deviate from the “blizz-like” aspect to offer a better quality of play in this arena. Solution (still Work in progress !) This is why we will implement a gate system all around the arena, as well as at the bottom of both stairs. The way they operate is simple: For players not in combat, those gates will be down, and you will see no difference. For players in combat, they will be up, and thus activating collision and Line of Sight block. We believe that it’s important for players to choose when they go in, but that it’s also needed to give them limitations about when they can go out. Once you are in combat in the arena, there is no going back. We also believe that the battle ring is big enough to give ranged classes a chance, but not to the point where they could exploit the weakness inherent to melee classes. Feedback We would like to let this change go through for a certain period of time, to allow players to get a good grasp at those changes’ consequences; and of course give us feedback on this ! Feedback can be about any point of improvement you would like to see: The aesthetic aspect, that -let’s be honest- wasn’t a prime priority for this change Various propositions of things you would like to see on the realm We already have some ideas we got from players, like Enable legendaries again, and making custom tweaks on them, so that they are potent enough to be attractive to players, but not too powerful either so the outcome of a fight between someone having a legendary item, and someone who does not isn’t already decided. Create a PVP zone like Gurubashi’s arena, but bigger, where we allow grouping up to 2 or 3 players, to give healers a place on the realm, which they do not have right now. Create events on the realm To sum it up No promises for the moment, but feedback is appreciated, and will be taken into account to help us establish a list of priorities for you guys on Greymane. Thanks in advance for your reports on the matter, Pantoufle
  25. Hi, I'm new on this server and I like to do pvp, I wanted to know if I played on Sylvanas I had to wait a long time to enter the arena 2s or 3s. Or I should necessarily play on Greymane.
