A great deal of changes announced for 7.1.5 and 7.2 at Blizzcon in World of Warcaft. Blizzcon was great, but haven’t been posting much. The following will compare the three patches and show the different of each patch.
7.1 seemed in part to be a love letter to druids. Many of the changes are druid specific:
Regrowth is baseline instead of Healing Touch – This makes Guardian Affinity a bit more appealing for raiding – you don’t need Restoration Affinity for access to a strong, fast heal.
Manasaber and Manakitty form in Suramar – and you can be “disguised” as a bear too – you used to break stealth out of no stance or Balance form.
Travel form travels almost as fast as mounts – it doesn’t benefit from Broken Isles Pathfinder but for short to medium distances it is nice to be able to use the class-fantasy-friendly method of traveling. Even for long travels, you can’t be dazed out of travel form, which is nice.
Treant Form is always 5th stance after Moonkin Form – it used to be 4th whenever you logged in or refreshed, and not having to switch specs and switch back to make it 4th form is a huge quality of life improvement – thanks Blizzard!
Owlkin Frenzy now empowers only Lunar Strike – it used to also work for Solar Wrath (or Stellar Flare). I made a weakaura to track the buff to make sure I only used it for Lunar Strike. While I was happy to optimize my play to get a minor edge over other Balance Druids, overall I enjoy not having to worry about that detail anymore.
PvP is more rewarding now – See a full list here, the first skirmish win gives 100 base honor, for example. I’ve gotten back into arena for the first time since early Draenor. I’m much worse and more casual at it than raiding, but have enjoyed climbing past 1600 in 2s with a few different friends.
A few of these were leading up to 7.1, most came in 7.1. And this isn’t even a full list. I have some gripes with the Legion design philosophy in general, but the changes for 7.1 were almost universally positive:
Karazhan is fun. I offspec heals (and do it pretty well; many of my M+10 clears are as a healer) and some guildies needed a healer, so I got luckily carried through a Nightbane run – and got the mount – and got a warforged 880 trinket. Good times. Kara was/seemed quite fun, I hope to go through it at a slightly slower pace soon.
I like the Falcosaurs. They look cool, the world quests are great for me as a skinner, and the new Falcosaur dish is good for leveling cooking to 780. Now all I need is Nomi to give me a single rank-3 Delicacy recipe and I’m on my way to 800 (and unlocking the Nightshare Refreshments in the Court of Stars).
The new Potions of Prolonged Power are great. They are almost-but-not-quite as good as the more expensive potions for most specs. I bought several stacks of 100 to use freely in Mythic+ dungeons. I would buy them en masse while you can before Alchemists run out of Blood of Sargeras. Similarly, I am a fan of the Blood of Sargeras vendor in Dalaran – cheaper mats are great overall.
World quest edits – the spawn rate or goals were slightly changed on a few world quests. Some were moved from a progress bar to objectives or vice versa. Every time I encountered this, it seemed like a good, well-reasoned decision. On a few, I had thought “the respawn timer on these mobs is a bit too slow” or “this should have/not have objectives” and Blizzard made that change – it was like they read my mind.
Bumping the maximum baseline gear reward to 845 was appreciated as well – at 880 iLvL, it makes the chance that something will titanforge into something useful a tiny bit more realistic. Slight dungeon edits, such as making the ground effect much more visible on the last boss of Halls of Valor or removing a few non-intuitive shortcuts. Bravo.
