Live Raid Tuning - May 14

With weekly resets in each region, we’re making the following adjustments to three raid encounters.

  • Battle of Dazar’alor
    • Lady Jaina Proudmoore
      • The random Bombard locations in stage one are now less likely to light a Zandalari Ballista on fire when players are not nearby.
      • Chilling Touch now begins when Arcane Barrage is interrupted (previously was when Nathanos is freed).
      • Prismatic Images now spawn closer to Jaina (was centered on the middle of the area).
      • Icefall is timed to no longer coincide with full power Gathering Blizzard in Mythic difficulty.
      • Gathering Blizzard and Freezing Blood should now be more responsive in Mythic difficulty.
      • Jaina’s health has been reduced by 5% in Mythic difficulty.
  • Crucible of Storms
    • The Restless Cabal
      • Void Crash and Crushing Doubt now prefer ranged targets.
      • Witness the End duration reduced to 7 seconds (was 9 seconds) in Mythic difficulty.
      • Zaxasj the Speaker and Fa’thuul the Feared health reduced by 5% in Mythic difficulty.
    • Uu’nat, Harbinger of the Void
      • Void Crash now prefers ranged targets.
      • Insatiable Torment now prefers damage dealers.
      • Piercing Gaze of N’Zoth duration reduced to 4 seconds (was 5 seconds) in Mythic difficulty.
      • Undying Guardians health reduced by 17% in Mythic difficulty.
      • The number of players targeted with Unstable Resonance has been reduced to 12 per cast (was 18) and now prefers ranged targets on Mythic difficulty.
      • Uu’nat’s health reduced by 5% in Mythic difficulty.

In Crucible of Storms, along with slightly reducing the overall difficulty of its encounters on Mythic difficulty, these changes are aimed at encouraging more diverse raid compositions, as well as making the encounters more accessible to guilds with melee-heavy rosters.

Again, these changes should go live with resets in each region.

Battle for Azeroth Dungeon Event
This week's bonus event is the Battle for Azeroth Dungeon Event.

  • All week long the final boss of each Battle for Azeroth Dungeon will drop an extra piece of loot.
  • Pick up the quest Emissary of War from either your Adventure Journal or in your faction hub. Completing this quest rewards Cache of Dazar'alor Treasures which contains a piece of item level 400 Battle for Dazar'alor loot and a large sum of Azerite power.

The Battle for Azeroth Dungeons Bonus Event is underway!

This Week
All week, open Group Finder (default hotkey: I) to queue for any Battle for Azeroth dungeon on Normal or Heroic difficulty.

Alternatively, get a group of veteran dungeoneers together and travel to one of the Battle for Azeroth dungeons on Mythic difficulty:

  • Atal’Dazar
  • Temple of Sethraliss
  • The Underrot
  • The MOTHERLODE!!
  • Freehold
  • Shrine of the Storm
  • Tol Dagor
  • Waycrest Manor

Look for the following all week long:
  • Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar or Chronicler Toopa in Boralus has a quest for you – Emissary of War. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it within the Adventure Journal.
    • Quest requirement: Complete 4 Battle for Azeroth dungeons on Mythic difficultly.
    • Rewards: One loot box containing a piece of gear from Heroic difficulty Battle for Dazar'alor.
  • Passive bonus: The final boss in each dungeon drop additional loot on all difficulties (except Mythic Keystone difficulties.)

Every Week
The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.

Every other week a new PvP Brawl will be available to players looking for something just a little different. Each Brawl will offer a variety of modes, rules, and scenic changes to the usual Battleground gameplay, and you’ll find them in the Group Finder tool (hotkey “I”) in the Player vs. Player tab. Just like Random Battlegrounds, you’ll receive a reward for achieving victory.

Warsong Scramble – Capture the Flag
Do you have a flag? Warsong Gulch has always been the scene of an epic Capture the Flag battle, but what happens when you can capture your enemy’s flag without your own at base? Find out when you step into this PvP Brawl! We’ve also added a few more power-ups to the field of battle to stir things up a bit. To win, your team will need to be the first to capture 5 flags.
