i hope the ptr will be there soon
Great post! But still no word on when 6.0 launches in other words...
Blizzard has stated that anyone who has completed Challenge Conqueror: Silver on at least one character will be rewarded all 4 mounts when 6.0 hits (Link to Blizzard post)
Small correction regarding Phoenix amount rewards:According to http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/12930280"Silver: The Pandaren Phoenix mounts awarded for a full set of Silver medals will become account-wide. If any character on an account has earned a full set of Silver medals, all four variants of the Pandaren Phoenix (Crimson, Ashen, Violet, and Emerald) will become available to all characters account-wide."So if ONE of your toons has a full set of silver medals, as of 6.0 all of your toons will have access to all four Phoenix mounts.
Thanks, we've clarified that and the wording on another CM part. Currently they are not account-wide on the beta after character copy, so I went by that instead.
That is GREAT news about the heirloom gear. My guild is slowly getting back into raiding, we are going to start with the earlier Mists raids. I think we'll be in good shape to attack SoO in 6.0.I'm assuming 6.0 is 10/14 or thereabouts right? One month before, like always.
Are we sure this is for 6.0 and not for when the expansion comes out?
Yes. This isn't up for debate, I've linked multiple blue posts talking about changes coming in 6.0 and confirmed with a dev about the one change I was unsure about. There is always a systems pre-patch a month or so before an expansion hits.
Any idea when the pre launch event will begin?
Not yet, the PTR isn't up yet and it looks like the Blasted Lands quests are in flux on beta. We'll get a post up specifically dedicated to the pre-launch event when we know more.
Don't have 140k gold to complete challenge mode(
Since the heirloom weapon is 100% chance to drop after 6.0, but before Warlords, is this only in Flex/Normal/etc. or will they drop in LFR as well?
It says that Valor Points are being removed and I followed the link relating to this but it didn't have any mention of the Wrathion quest to earn 3000 Valor Points as part of the legendary cloak questline, So I was wondering what is going to happen to that?
Is the 6.0 reference to the launch of warlords or the systems pre patch. Ive seen blue posts regarding that the kor'kron juggernaut is still a guaranteed drop in mythic level 90 siege and only going to be a rare drop once the expansion actually hits. In other words Is blizzard changing the drop rate of the kor'kron juggernaught while siege is still max level content or is there a misinterpretation here?
So with valor going away, will it be converted to gold, or just lost?
I've reached out to devs for clarification on what's going on with a Test of Valor, in response to them saying that Valor Points are gone in 6.0. Also clarified the heroic Garrosh mount, it's just the normal going away in 6.0. I've moved the Heroic one to the "keep this in mind for the future" section, since it will be harder to get eventually.
Not sure if Schematic: Hyper-Radiant Flame Reflector becomes unavailiable aswell since Solakar Flamewreath in UBRS will be removed.
That's a great point about the UBRS recipe and since Blizzard seems to have made an effort to include UBRS transmog looks in the new version, I would tweet @olandgren or @nite_moogle about recipes you're concerned about. Or I can roundup recipe concerns here and email them in a few days.
Any news on the rest of BRS? Considering both upper and lower BRS are in the same instance, I was wondering how lower blackrock spire will be affected
