Patch 6.1: Crafting improvements - Wed, 28 Jan 2015 18:00:00 EST

I think one of the more frequent complaints I've heard from people about professions in Warlords is the time gating. The latest patch 6.1 PTR build has some changes to help rectify this.

  • You can now craft reagents like Hexweave Cloth as often as you want by using a combination of Primal Spirits and raw materials, e.g. Primal Weaving.
  • Stat reroll items like Didi's Delicate Assembly no longer cost cooldown/work order reagents to craft and instead just cost raw materials.
  • Some profession daily cooldowns have had their raw material cost increased, e.g. Gearspring Parts now costs 15 of each ore, up from 10.
In general, it seems like Blizzard is trying to bring some value back to raw materials. I give a solid thumbs up to the change to reroll items. I don't want to disclose how much gold I had to spend rerolling my gun to the proper stats. Looking at these changes, maybe I'll actually have to dust off my mining pick. Wowhead has a full list of all the profession changes.

Patch 6.0.3 Hotfixes for January 27 - Wed, 28 Jan 2015 17:00:00 EST

Another round of hotfixes for patch 6.0.3 were released yesterday and posted to the official blog -- including several bug fixes that have been plaguing players for a while now. Plenty of talents and abilities should now be working correctly for several classes, several quests have been adjusted and resolved, and on top of all of that, if you've been missing a certain promised follower, they should be happily ensconced in your garrison now. Good news all around!
  • Players that have completed the quest Primal Fury before the January 21 hotfix should now have either Thisalee Crow (Alliance) or Choluna (Horde) as a follower.
  • All quests should now be awarding XP even if the character is dead at the time that the quest is completed.
  • Swapblaster no longer works while characters are engaged in battlegrounds.
Read on for the full list of hotfixes.

The Queue: Twitter Edition - Wed, 28 Jan 2015 16:15:00 EST

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) is answering all kinds of questions today!

I've had this song stuck in my head for a couple of days, so now you guys get it. Today's Queue is a special Twitter edition, because oh my gosh 1,700 comments and there is no way I'm going to be able to sift through all of that for questions, guys! But let's get to the good stuff, shall we?

@WarlockTriqz asked:

How do we get that new mount that Blizz announced?

Boy I wish I knew! But I really have no idea -- however, the purple color scheme and books/runes on the kitty make me think it might be something legendary quest related. I mean, we have Khadgar, who's all Kirin Tor which is all about the purple and the runes, and we have the Watchers hanging out with him, and they all ride nightsabers, presumably. So maybe something tied into that? Alternatively, maybe a tie-in for Heroes of the Storm, but I'm not sure about that one.

Chauffered Chopper heirloom mount coming in patch 6.1 - Wed, 28 Jan 2015 15:00:00 EST

Sure, with heirlooms you can deck your alts out in great gear and make the leveling process a lot easier. But what about getting around? Your mounts may be shared across all of your characters, but you still can't ride those mounts when you get started -- which leaves your new alt stuck running around the world. How undignified!

Enter the Chauffered Chopper, which is currently on the patch 6.1 test realm. Like the name implies, this is a motorcycle-style mount with a driver (currently orc Koak Hoburn, likely a nod to Driving Miss Daisy chauffeur Hoke Colburn). Having your own chauffeur means that you can ride around in this chopper at any level, making it a must-have for alt-a-holics on the move. You can pick up your own by nabbing the Heirloom Hoarder achievement for collecting 35 heirlooms.

The mount isn't currently working on the PTR, so it appears to be a work in progress. Also, it's more than a little odd to have an orc chauffeur for a distinctly alliance-styled mount, so we wonder if its look might be changing before it goes live. We'll keep an eye on the PTR for more info when it's there!
