6.2.3

#friendshipmoose – Bringing the WoW Community together

The WoW community on Twitter is a wonderful and amazing thing, y’know?

Mooooose is a deferred drop from Heroic Archimonde. Deferred in the sense that he drops a quest item that leads directly to the Mooooose itself.

People on Twitter have taken it upon themselves to organise runs to not only get players their mount, but to also get people geared up enough to be able to partake in an Heroic Archimonde kill to get it.

The typical players that will be looking to make use of this are players that never see Heroic end-game, and in some cases barely ever see normal mode end-game that are being brought along and given a shot at the mount. I say shot, but it’s a guaranteed drop since 6.2.3 went live, and will only be hanging around until Legion. Once Legion drops, in about, oh say 10 months from now, it’ll presumably be gone for good, just like the Garrosh heirloom drops in Mists.

This is why the WoW community on Twitter are so great. Regardless of faction, region, class or spec, the community has come together to organise these runs to get anyone their gear and their mount.

If you’re interested then you can contact the following peeps:

Some of the signups are temporarily closed due to high demand, but keep an eye on the relevant twitter feed for your faction & region for signups opening up again!

6.2.3 is now Live!

6.2.3 is now Live!

Well 6.2.3 went live this week, and with it several things of note:

  • Cataclysm Timewalking dungeons.
  • One additional dungeon for Timewalking during TBC and Wrath events.
  • Valor Points, for…
  • MoP-style 2/2 item upgrades boosting items in item level by 5 per upgrade at a cost of 250VP per upgrade.
  • Grove Warden Moose* & Infinite Dragon Mounts (Heroic Archi & Timewalking bosses respectively).
  • Mythic HFC is now Cross Realm.
  • Mythic 5 mans now have item levels of 685 to 725.
  • Tanaan Baleful token drops can create items that range in item level anywhere between 655 and 695.
  • Felblight drops have been increased from gathering professions by about 20%.
  • 4-15% damage buffs for DKs, Druids, Paladins, Shamans and Warriors.
  • PvP season 3.

One little oddity I noticed:

  • Mirror of the Blademaster now summon magical blades as guardians, instead of mirror images of the caster.

This is probably a log issue, as the mirror images used to be targetable and carried the caster’s name.

All in all not bad for a minor (x.x.x) patch, and on a par with the so-called “major” (x.x) patch that was 6.1, which brought Heirloom Tab & Belf Model updates and…not a lot else from memory?

Already run my 5 TW dungeons for the event quest, and got my first batch of 500VP. I used that to upgrade my gun, but as yet the armory or ingame are not updated behind the scenes to handle displaying the increase in ilevel on the item itself.

Someday Blizzard, someday…

Oh, and watch out for the Fel Reaver in Warspear/Stormshield! 

*Further post about getting this coming in a bit!
