FOR AZEROTH! EP. 150 – “THREE STORIES IN ONE”

This week on For Azeroth, Manny and Joce chat about their week in WoW, exploiting accounts being banned, end game gear, and then discuss the Night Fae covenant campaign. All that and more on this week’s For Azeroth!


Cheaters never prosper

Players received bans today for exploiting a bug in order to generate infinite Stygia. This exploit allowed them to unlock and upgrade all the possible Conduits for their class. The punishments varied from a one to seven day suspension; all of the conduit ranks reduced by up to 3 levels; and, the stygia gains rolled back.


Beasts of Prodigum

The first of 3 bonus events have been “unleashed” (Sorry Ann) upon the Tower of the Damned. The Beasts of Porigum Bonus Event offers a shake up on your typical runs for Soul Ash.

  • At the beginning of each run you are offered two additional Anima Powers
    • Chain of Command gives you an tanky pet that has some CC
    • Wailing Pendant summons a buff bot companion
  • If you choose one of the additional powers you may be offered upgrades for your new doggo
  • A schedule for future events has been provided and they can also be seen on the in-game calendar:
    • TORGHAST: BEASTS OF PRODIGUM
      • April 6
      • June 29
    • TORGHAST: CHORUS OF DEAD SOULS
      • February 9
      • May 4
    • TORGHAST: UNBRIDLED DARKNESS
      • March 9
      • June 1

PC Gamer State of the Game Article

PC Gamer released an article as a follow up to their initial review of Shadowlands. We are now 2 months into the expansion and the article gauges the reviewers current views on Shadowlands. From the article two questions are put to Ion.

  • “We significantly reduced the rate at which players earn item rewards, but at the same time also stripped away randomness and tried to give everyone more clear goals to pursue and control over their progress towards them. When it comes to PvP itemization specifically, we’re really happy with how that’s playing out, but we think we can do more to make the experience of running dungeons and raids feel more satisfying when you don’t get a specific item you were hoping for.”

Covenant Campaigns are Complete!
