Blizzplanet is a leading fansite covering news about upcoming Blizzard Entertainment licensed products. I also post previews and reviews. I have interviewed book writers and Blizzard game developers.

I was previously an employee of the OGaming Network (2003), and IncGamers (2008-2010). I was a guest newsposter for GosuGamers (World of Warcraft) a few years ago and for Diablofans.com (formerly Diablo3.com)

WoW PTR 7.3.5 Turalyon & Alleria Homecoming

Turalyon and Alleria can be found at the Valley of Heroes discussing how weird it feels to see their memorial statues.

(Alleria’s eyes drift from the statue’s cold stone visage down to the plaque engraved with her epitaph.)

(Stay awhile and listen.)

Alleria sighs, her brow furrowed.

High Exarch Turalyon: It is unsewttling to look upon these memorials to our passing.

Alleria Windrunner: Indeed. Sometimes I feel that I have already died twice. Once when we were presumed lost on Draenor, and again when gripped by the shadow of the fallen naaru. Perhaps death is the true legacy of the Windrunners.

High Exarch Turalyon: You’re anxious. You hide it well… but I know you.

Alleria Windrunner: Like no other, my love.

High Exarch Turalyon: You don’t have to go. You don’t have to see her. Each of you has a path to follow. If the Light wills that those paths intersect, they will. There’s no need to force the hand of fate.

Alleria Windrunner: It is time, Turalyon. I must see my homeland again with my own eyes… and hear from Sylvanas how she could ever wear the mantle of warchief.

WoW PTR 7.3.5 Bloodtotem Survivors & Highmountain Monks

The Bloodtotem survivors have migrated to Thunder Totem as refugees. They can be found in the large tent at 61,19.

Bloodtotem Survivor: I’m glad we didn’t have to give EVERYTHING.

My corrupted brethren still wander out in the wilds. Is there any hope for them?

Some of the Bloodtotem are still scattered in the wilds. I cannot believe my brothers and sisters succumbed to the fel.

Thank you for dealing with Torok. He refused to see the dangers behind the power he sought.

(The sleeping Tauren snores loudly and rolls over.)

ZZZzzz…

 

 

WoW PTR 7.3.5 Nightborne NPCs moved to Nighthold

As discovered by TheRedShirtGuy, the Nightborne has moved into the Nighthold (the outdoor version).

While exploring, I found First Arcanist Thalyssra and Ly’leth Lunastre at 59, 85.

Thalyssra: It had to be this way. We no longer need the Nightwell, nor its power. We must forge our own destiny.

Ly’leth Lunastre: The business with Elisande is over, but there is still much to be done for the city.

 

 

PTR 7.3.5 introduces level 1-100 scaling and dungeon scaling

The World of Warcraft PTR 7.3.5 is here and not only is the Battle for Azeroth level 1-100 scaling playtested right now, but dungeons as well scale. Here are some examples:

I went in with my main level 110 character. If you enter the Ragefire Chasm right now in the Patch 7.3.2 live servers, the Adolescent Flame Hound at the entrance are level 14.

In PTR 7.3.5, the same creature is level 60.

 

What Blizzard wants you to test in World of Warcraft PTR 7.3.5

Around 1:30am EST, Community Manager Lore posted the following statement to inform players what the game developers expect volunteers to playtest in PTR 7.3.5. Basically, they want your feedback on the new revamped level 1-100 scaling experience. However, there will be new features added for testing in upcoming 7.3.5 builds: such as Ulduar Timewalking, the Silithus Battleground, and it seems there is more quests to tell the story of the aftermath of Antorus.

By observation, something else I found that is not listed is that you can now queue in the LFG Raid Finder to Hope’s End (Antorus). That’s the only one available at the moment.

There is more Artifact Power reward in PvP Rated Arena and Rated Battlegrounds. To keep in perspective: My main is level 74 Artifact Level and Artifact Knowledge 55. In live, the Rated Battlegrounds reward is 7.7 Billion Artifact Power. In PTR 7.3.5, it is 10 Billion Artifact Power.

Lore: Welcome to the Patch 7.3.5 Public Test Realm! This patch includes several new updates and content, and also lays some of the groundwork for the upcoming Battle for Azeroth expansion.

Our biggest focus for testing during this PTR period will be on the new level 1-100 zone and dungeon scaling we’re introducing with 7.3.5. This is an extensive change to how loot, quests, and creatures work in the open world, so we’re going to need as much feedback as we can get about how things are working out. We’ll have some more details in the coming days about how you can best help us make sure this new feature rolls out as smoothly as possible.

Other features you’ll see on the PTR over the next few weeks include Ulduar Timewalking, a preview of the new Silithus Battleground, and a few other bits of content that get into the aftermath of the events in Antorus and set the stage for the upcoming conflict in Battle for Azeroth. Note that since development of the new expansion is now in full swing, datamining sites are likely to see some bits and pieces of features that are part of Battle for Azeroth (such as Allied Races).

As we’ve done for similar patches in Legion, we’ll be providing updates throughout the PTR process that give insight into what’s being made available for testing and what sort of feedback would be most helpful. Thanks for checking it out, and happy testing! — source

 

 

The Death of a Titan

Prophet Velen: There is no way to express the depth of my sorrow. My rage. What Sargeras has done…

Argus, my home world, holds the soul of a titan. It has been twisted and corrupted beyond redemption, its power harnessed to fuel the Legion’s infinite army.

We must do the impossible… breach the depths of Antorus and sever the Legion’s connection to the world soul.

Please, (name). End its pain, its suffering. In striking down the dark heart of Argus, we will defeat the Legion… and redeem the soul of my world.

 

QUEST OBJECTIVES

Strike down the soul of Argus in Antorus, the Burning Throne.

 

The Burning Throne

High Exarch Turalyon: The time has come, (name), to begin our assault upon Antorus. Everything we have fought for, everything our friends and family have sacrificed, has brought us to this moment. We will fire Light’s Judgment upon the walls of the accursed citadel and storm their seat of power. We will end the Legion. After all you have done, it is fitting that you have the honor. Activate the Crown of the Triumvirate and let us finish our mission.

 

QUEST OBJECTIVES

Use the Crown of the Triumvirate while above the Antoran Wastes to open the way to Antorus.
