Patch 7.3

Latest WoW hotfixes see the return of Glyph of Fel-Touched Shards A small and unexpected list of hotfixes was released over the weekend for patch 7.3. However, Warlocks and Scribes alike can now rejoice — Technique: Glyph of Fel-Touched Shards is once again usable. The item, which dropped from Inquisitor Vethroz, was temporarily removed from his loot table earlier this month due to a bug. In...

Do you like the Netherlight Crucible? This week saw the last piece of the Shadows of Argus story quests, which concluded with the unlocking of the Netherlight Crucible. Now you can… reforge your Relics? Did anybody want this? I know that was snarky. And there are cool things about the Netherlight Crucible. It does serve to make RNG less awful. But it does...




Latest WoW hotfixes adjust the Seat of the Triumvirate and more The latest round of WoW hotfixes address the new dungeon added with this week’s maintenance. A bug preventing some of the Seat of the Triumvirate dungeon World Quests from counting towards Emissary credit has been fixed. In addition, a couple of encounters have been adjusted as well. When fighting Zuraal the Ascended, Dark Aberrations should...

Do you wish Shadows of Argus had more story quests? By now, players are unlocking the Netherlight Crucible, the Seat of the Triumvirate 5-player dungeon, and otherwise finishing up with the Shadows of Argus storyline. And I’m not arguing that the story for the patch is bad by any means… But I am curious as to whether or not it’s enough. Are you satisfied with the...

A quick guide to the Netherlight Crucible The Netherlight Crucible is a way to combat bad RNG with a little more RNG while making you stronger. Basically, before patch 7.3 if you got a Relic with a trait you didn’t like, you’d throw it away. Now, if you get that Relic, you have a chance to add a better trait to it,...

Latest hotfixes introduce Argus Waystone changes and more A new batch of hotfixes has been released right on time for the arrival of the Netherlight Crucible and the last part of the Argus campaign. Speaking of the Crucible, these hotfixes include the class tuning changes that were announced earlier this week. In addition, the Argus Waystone changes have been implemented, removing the Waystones...




Netherlight Crucible receives another tuning pass before it goes live The Netherlight Crucible has prompted some last minute tuning and class balance changes, with one last tuning pass before it goes live tomorrow. Since not all classes would benefit from the Netherlight Crucible’s effects in the same way, and some others needed a buff in general, the balance changes will bring everything more in line....

Argus should have been its own expansion When I sat down to play patch 7.3, my first thought was: this is what Legion should have been all along. After thinking about it, I revised that opinion. Legion should not have been Argus, because Legion is a perfectly fine expansion. Rather, Argus should have been an expansion unto itself. Legion? More like Anything But The Legion...



Latest hotfixes address Argus, the Broken Shore, and some very old dungeons A new round of hotfixes for patch 7.3 has been released, just in time for the weekend. Players that are still on the Broken Shore should take note that the building accumulation rate has been increased. With so many players on Argus now, buildings have understandably slowed down. This change should bring them back up...

🔒 Invasion Points: Previewing future expansions? When Blizzard announced we were going to Argus, I couldn’t help but wonder what’s next. Normally new planets and gathering systems are reserved for new expansions. In confronting the Burning Legion head-on, we’re nearing the end of the Titan storyline, which opens up new stories. Obviously N’zoth is a threat we haven’t dealt with, and...

Know Your Lore: Shadows of Argus Q&A This is a bit of a swerve for this column, but I get asked a lot of questions on Twitter and via email about patch 7.3 and things that we’ve seen and experienced since it dropped. So in this particular edition of Know Your Lore, I’m going to take some time and look at them....

Patch 7.3 Invasion Points and You: Enjoyable or death-traps? Tuesday’s continuation of the Argus storyline also brought us new Invasion Points. Instead of the Legion invading our world where we have to race to fight them back, we find portals where the Legion is invading other worlds and we must go oust them. The Invasion Points work relatively the same way the pre-Legion invasions...

🔒 Patch 7.3 and the Return to WoW I admit I’ve been on a WoW break this summer. Don’t get me wrong, Legion has been one of the strongest expansions of the game in my opinion. Suramar alone was a masterpiece in terms of detail, immersion, and storytelling. But after I settled into the LFR grind and the alt grind and the World...

What helps you keep up with everything added to WoW? It’s not too hard to see that World of Warcraft’s patch 7.3 added a lot of new content to the game. Obviously, the big deal is Argus and its three zones — which, combined with all of the new World Quests they bring with them, is a lot all its own. But 7.3 didn’t just...

Latest WoW hotfixes address Mythic Fallen Avatar and more Another round of WoW hotfixes has been released, just in time for the weekend. Today’s list includes several bug fixes, including a round for Druids, Mages, Priest, and Shaman. Druids using Glyph of Stars should now be seeing the new casting animations for both Sunfire and Moonfire, while Discipline Priests are losing their mid-air shuffle...

Patch 7.3 undocumented changes As always, new patches often include changes that don’t quite make it into the official patch notes. Some of these may have been known or present on the PTR and some were actually discussed at Gamescom, while others are completely new. But for anyone keeping up with the patch 7.3 notes, these are some of...
