    New Raid: Ny’alotha, the Waking City

    Delve into where nightmares dwell in Ny’alotha, the Waking City, a 12-boss raid set in the Void-shrouded heart of the ancient Black Empire. Confront mad heralds and inscrutable horrors, and ultimately go eye-to-eyes with N’Zoth himself in a fateful battle for Azeroth’s survival.

    Ny’alotha, the Waking City Normal and Heroic difficulties are now live, while the first wing of Raid Finder (minimum item level: 410)—Vision of Destiny—and Mythic will open next week on January 28.

    Learn more about the raid and Raid Finder schedule here.

    New Mythic Dungeon Affix: Awakened

    Season 4 has a new affix—Awakened. While the Awakened affix is active, players will discover four obelisks throughout the dungeon, which will pull players through the veil to the shadowy world of Ny’alotha. There, players will confront a powerful lieutenant of N’Zoth and its minions which they must defeat or the lieutenant will join forces with the final boss in the instance. Once taken down, the party will be returned to their regular reality in the location they’re currently standing in. This will enable some interesting skips that don’t involve the use of Rogues’ Shroud of Concealment or invisibility.

    • Blood of the Corruptor (Defiled Spire of Ny’alotha): When facing this aberration, vile ooze will rot the earth beneath two heroes’ feet, dealing 60,000 damage a second.
    • Samh’rek, Beckoner of Chaos (Entropic Spire of Ny’alotha): Living up to its title, Samh’rek will sow destruction target three players with Cascading Terror—a powerful debuff that targets three players and fears all heroes standing beside them for a few seconds.
    • Urg’roth, Breaker of Heroes (Brutal Spire of Ny’alotha): Few can withstand the vicious fury of Urg’oth who shatters players with Spirit Breaker, increasing damage taken by a target substantially for a moderate amount of time and deals devastating damage to players who stand in Dark Fury.
    • Voidweaver Mal’thir (Cursed Spire of Ny’alotha): This powerful enemy withers champions’ minds and bodies to slow to a crawl with its Crippling Pestilence and Lingering Doubt spells, which deal a large amount of damage and reduce movement and casting speed.

    Mechagon – Junkyard and Mechagon – Workshop

    Operation: Mechagon enters the Mythic Keystone dungeon rotation this season as two new instances—the Junkyard and the Workshop. Each of these instances has four bosses which have been tuned for Season 4 progression.

    Items and Rewards

    New: Corrupted Items

    With the release of Season 4, you’ll be able to earn more gear tainted with Corruption from a variety of new sources including Mythic Keystone dungeons, PvP activities, and Ny’alotha, the Waking City raid. Cursed by N’Zoth, corrupted items offer truly exceptional power—for a price. As you don more corrupted gear, you’ll find your spells will do more damage, or your heals will be more potent—but the Corruption will begin to affect you in increasingly perilous ways. At low Corruption levels, you may be slowed periodically when taking damage—while at higher corruption levels, evil forces from the Void may come for you at any moment.

    Learn more about Corrupted Items here.

    New Essence: The Formless Void

    Now available to earn in Ny’alotha, the Waking City raid, this Essence provides new powers and a unique passive that provides some Corruption Resistance.

    Mythic Keystone Dungeon Rewards

    Many new powerful gear rewards are now available to earn in Season 4.

    • Item levels of rewards from level 120 Normal, Heroic, and Mythic dungeons have been increased by 30. Baseline rewards are now item-level 400 from Normal, 415 from Heroic, and 430 from non-Keystone Mythic dungeons.
    • Mythic Keystone rewards for Season 4 have been increased by 30 item levels.
    • Mythic Keystone dungeons at +7 or higher difficulty now award end-of-run items that scale up to item level 465 at Mythic +15 difficulty.
    • Item level improvements for weekly rewards now extend to Mythic +15 difficulty, which awards an item level 475 piece of gear in the weekly chest.
    • Cloaks do not drop in Season 4 weekly caches or in the Darkshore Heroic Warfront.
    • Any items not updated for Season 4 (for example, items from The Eternal Palace or Heroic-difficulty Darkshore Warfront) can continue to Warforge and Titanforge up to item level 455, but cannot be Corrupted.
    • Starting in Season 4, Mythic Keystone dungeons have a chance to drop more than 2 items at +16 difficulty or higher (was +11 difficulty).

    Titan Residuum

    Spend your hard-earned Titan Residuum on new item-level 460 and 475 Azerite armor pieces and tokens. Costs for previously available Azerite pieces have been reduced.

    Profession Items

    • Several new profession items and recipes are now available to loot from the servants of N’Zoth.

    Mythic Keystone Dungeon Updates

    • Enemy health and damage in Heroic dungeons increased by 25%.
    • Health and damage of enemies in non-Keystone Mythic dungeons increased by 45%; Normal dungeons are unchanged.
    • Mythic Keystones have been reduced by an additional 4 levels, to account for this difficulty increase.
    • The enemy health and damage bonuses in Mythic Keystone dungeons now increase by 10% per difficulty level (up from 8%).

    Player versus Player

    Welcome to Season 4: Corrupted

    Season 4 spins a web of new player-versus-player content including the visually updated and redesigned Deepwind Gorge. Inspired by Arathi Basin, the new Deepwind Gorge has five capture points for teams to battle over. Maintaining control over the Market, Farm, Ruins, Shrine, and Quarry will be key to securing victory as the first faction to reach 1,500 points wins!

    Participants can earn two new faction-themed Vicious mounts, and the highest-rated players will unlock new Notorious Gladiator mounts.

    Player versus Player Reward Updates

    • Item levels of rewards earned from War Chests from all PvP tiers (Unranked, Combatant, Challenger, Rival, Duelist, and Gladiator) increased by 30.
    • Item levels of end-of-match rewards for all PvP tiers increased by 30.

    New Brawl: Teeming Islands

    This large-scale battle Brawl brings an additional challenge to the shores of PvP Island Expeditions by increasing the total amount of players from six to 20 on the biggest Islands (Havenswood and Jorundall).

    When the Brawl is active, players can join the fight by opening up Group Finder (default hotkey: i), selecting it from the Player vs. Player tab, and queueing up.

    World Bosses

    While many of the greatest threats to peace in Azeroth are locked away in ancient vaults or perched atop soaring fortresses, others walk brazenly beneath the open sky in Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms.

    • Grand Empress Shek’zara: Grand Empress Shek’zara uses her powerful voice and Zara’thik Swarmguard to overwhelm enemies.
    • Ulmath, the Soulbinder: A powerful Merciless One with ultimate control of two minions, Moon Priestess Liara and Guardian Tannin.
    • Vuk’laz the Earthbreaker: This living weapon of war attempts to overcome its enemies with devasting physical attacks. As the battle rages Vuk’laz summons scarabs to its aid from beneath the Writhing Sands.

    New Heroic Warfront: Darkshore

    Battle for Darkshore

    In Season 4, you’ll be able to play the Heroic version of the Darkshore Warfront. Just like Heroic Stromgarde, you’ll need to coordinate with a premade group of 10 to 20 players to win against the relentless forces of the enemy. Victorious players can earn item level 460 gear rewards.

    Interact with the War Table in Boralus or in the Port of Zuldazar with your raid group to join the fight. Note that the option to queue for Heroic Battle of Darkshore will become available when the next time a certain faction commences an assault on Darkshore in a given region. Regions that are already partway through a Battle of Darkshore attack cycle will be able to access Heroic difficulty the next time Darkshore comes under attack in Season 4.

    Suspensions for Black Empire Coffer Abuse

    We’ve removed the suspensions that were issued for repeatedly looting the Black Empire Coffer.

    We hotfixed the underlying issue earlier this week. Our initial analysis suggested that there was exploitative behavior here: a series of actions that needed to be taken outside of typical gameplay in order to gain advantage. However, further investigation revealed this was not always the case. This chest could reset under innocuous or even accidental conditions.

    Patch 8.3 - Known Additional Auction House Issues

    • When items are returned in the mail from the Auction House, it can incorrectly contain more stacks than the displayed maximum of 16. This makes it look like some items are not being delivered. You will know if you are experiencing this if a mail appears empty but can’t be deleted.
    • To retrieve the missing items in this scenario, take out all 16 of the displayed stacks, then close and reopen the mailbox to see the rest (you may need to repeat this several times).
    • If a character buys commodities in high quantities, they may not be able to access their mail.
    • The favorites list is not saving properly.
    • We have resolved some of the issues causing the “Internal Auction Error” to pop up, but it is still occurring and we are continuing to look into it.

    Overwatch's Lunar New Year Event Delivers A Sombra Skin With Six Different Masks

    GameInformer
    By GameInformer,

    ovr_pr_lunar20_006.png

    Overwatch is ringing in the new year with new face-changing technology. Kicking off today and running until February 6, players can earn new skins that are themed to the Lunar New Year, which just happens to be the Year of the Rat.

    The skin players will likely want the most is Face-Changing Sombra, which is based on "bian lian," an art form from traditional Chinese opera. "Bian lian" translates to "change face." That's exactly what Sombra can do. Using what a Blizzard calls a "digital Sombra glitch," her mask will switch between six different styles, meaning she can wear six different masks in a match. The rub: You may not be able to see the masks since you are playing from first person, but the team you are going against will get a good look at their beauty.

    Sombra's legendary skin can be found in loot crates or can be purchased if you have credits handy. You'll also have the chance to find or buy three other legendary skins: Opera Brigitte, Mask Dancer Moira (which is awesome and you can see below), and Samul Nori Lucio.

    If you put in the effort to win nine games in each of the events three weeks, you can unlock these epic skins: Monk Doomfist (week 1), Ancient Chinese Bronze Winston (week 2), Paper-Cutting Wrecking Ball (week 3).

    For Arcade players, Blizzard is introducing a modified version of Capture the Flap called Brawl Blitz that has flags set at the closer overtime range. Given how fast flags can be captured, you'll need to grab six (instead of three) to win.

    Good luck getting the skins you want this year, Overwatch players. You can see them all below:

    Heroic Difficulty Operation: Mechagon Awaits

    Heroic Difficulty Operation: Mechagon Awaits
    Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
    Prince Erazmin leads a group of unlikely allies on a desperate mission into the heart of Mechagon. In a race against time, they must overcome King Mechagon’s army of mechanized monstrosities and defeat the mad genius before his doomsday device purges all organic life from Azeroth.

    Heroic Difficulty Operation: Mechagon is accessible by using Group Finder (I), where players will find this mechanically marvelous dungeon split into two parts—the Junkyard and the Workshop. You’ll need to have an item level of 345 to be able to queue. Beginning January 21, those looking to amp up the challenge of this dungeon will also be able to take on Mythic Keystones.

    Dungeon Bosses: 8 (Heroic split into 4 and 4)
    Difficulties: Heroic and Mythic
    Level: 120

    Operation: Mechagon – Junkyard

    mechagonboss01.jpg

    King Gobbamak: Obsessed with hoarding dangerous technology found amongst the scrap, King Gobbamak sits upon a pile of doomsday weapons that he lacks the intelligence to operate or understand.

    mechagonboss02.jpg

    Gunker: After years of coalescing into a concentrated cesspool. Mechagon's toxic waste has gained malevolent sentience. With the sanitation systems disabled, Gunker is free to ooze across all of Azeroth.

    mechagonboss03.jpg

    Trixie & Naeno: Trixie and Naeno, two of Bondo’s top lieutenants, have a turbulent relationship. While Trixie prides herself on ruthless efficiency, Naeno is the embodiment of chaos while behind the wheel. The only thing they have in common is their penchant for senseless violence, which they enjoy dispensing on anyone foolish enough to wander into their territory.

    mechagonboss04.jpg

    HK-8 Aerial Oppression Unit: Predator of the skies, the HK-8 Aerial Oppression Unit soars over the yard executing its prime directive, disintegrating all trespassers. With impenetrable armor and a lethal host of weapons, it annihilates all who are caught in its shadow.

    Operation: Mechagon – Workshop

    mechagonboss05.jpg

    Tussle Tonks: Mechagon’s premier mechgineers test their mettle (and metal) by building customized combat robots. While these tonks typically battle each other for glory, they combine their efforts to repel foolhardy organic intruders who dare venture into Mechagon.

    mechagonboss06.jpg

    K.U.-J.0.: As the repository for the city’s refuse, the Under Junk is a prime target for gnomes from Bondo’s gang who intend to steal valuable mechanical components. While Trash Mistress Wendy Cogsworth ceaselessly sorts the city’s junk, her loyal guard dog, K.U.-J.0., keeps out unwelcome intruders—mechagnomes and adventurers alike.

    mechagonboss07.jpg

    Machinist's Garden: Beautiful and dangerous, Head Machinist Sparkflux's metallic gardens are designed for both recreation and retribution. With a flick of a switch, the idyllic scenery transforms into a death trap from which no interloper can escape.

    mechagonboss08.jpg

    King Mechagon: As maniacal as he is brilliant, King Mechagon despises all organic life. With his mechoriginator primed and ready, nothing stands in the way of his scheme to purge the curse of flesh from Azeroth and mechanize the entire world.

    There’s a variety of loot just waiting to be pulled from the scrap in this dungeon full of mechanized monstrosities. Seek out your allies and join the discussion on the forums here.
