BfA Alpha

Dungeons
Waycrest Manor
Freehold
Temple of Sethraliss

Had to start over
Was able to go through the initial scenario, but the key cutscenes are placeholders.
“Cool cutscene”
Ali went through horde starting scenario, followed by amazing Escape from Stockades scenario.
Both Horde and Alliance zones are gorgeous!

Professions are sort of in
You can train, but no vendor for BfA tradeskill mats. Old school tradeskill mats vendor is there.
Fishing trainer added this week, only trains up to Pandaria fishing (Ali fished up Midnight Salmon)
Herbalism: herbs are not just in the ground. Star Moss grows on walls, Siren’s song grows out of trees...refreshing change

Mike
Making up the money I spent on the T3 chestpiece.
Problem - Vial of the Sands sells for garbage on my server (69,000g)
No mounts this week
Started going through ALL my screenshots. 103GB of them.
Sorted by expansion
May split them between characters.
Found out that I was leveling TWO mages at the same time on two servers.
Apparently I was on Aggramar and don’t remember why.
I also moved toons around a lot and don’t remember why.

Ali
Still trying for Invincible….Arthas is a bitch
Raid is working on trying to get Ahead of the Curve achievement together. Heroic Coven is a struggle. Going to get lockouts-Skipping it to work on Aggramar and Argus.
Halfway through Field Medic (got some repeat quest drops)
Really starting to focus on my N&A toon
Ren called for June 1st to official deadline. Can still work on it and complete it but after deadline, finishers won’t be announced on the show. Summer gets busy. Maybe a new challenge at some point? Never know with Ren!
My N&A toon is almost 65, determined to get it done in time
Ren spoke again about starting a Warcast guild on Silvermoon-US. Alliance side? We’ve been discussing different names on discord!

News:
Blizzcon tickets went on sale
Several people helping others to get tickets.
Both waves of tickets are over.
Don’t buy scalped tickets. Better to see if anyone has any extras.
GCD is a Big Thing™
Racials will be removed from the GCD
http://www.wowhead.com/news=283908/comprehensive-list-of-abilities-added-to-the-gcd-in-battle-for-azeroth#mage
Mage:
Time Warp
Charged Up (Arcane)
Arcane power (Arcane)
Spring Balloon Fest going on now until tomorrow
War Mode available.
Have not tested it yet
I might test it just to see how it goes, but will not be a permanent change for me.

Talking weapons transmog will still talk?

Don’t DDoS Blizzard
Romanian man extradited and sentenced to one year for DDoS in 2010
Also has to pay almost $30k

Episode 289

Ren
Finished Fisherfriend of the Isles
ALMOST finished Lucid Nightmare
Got into Beta, but no time to do anything about it
On Sylvanus server, copied my Horde paladin Krystoff onto it and created a Warcast channel

Mike
Nothing
Well, did some beta w/Ali but basically covered the same ground as pre-reset.
Guild moving to horde

News

BfA news

8.0 prepatch live on the PTR
Players gain access to a multitude of features and system updates in the pre-patch, including Communities, War Mode, the new Honor System, overhauled Professions, and Legion's final storyline leading up to Burning of Teldrassil and the Battle for Lordaeron.
Artifacts will be disabled when the pre-patch goes live. Player power will be buffed to compensate for the power loss.
Class Changes
A stat/item squish
Legendaries won't work past level 115.
Retired artifacts lose all their traits and become normal weapons, with stats scaling with relics installed in the artifact weapon. The main artifact effect of each spec's weapons is becoming a talent instead, as are several class specific legendaries.
Underlight Angler was originally showing as disabled, but the latest build fixed it.

WoW Classic
Will start with 1.12 Drums of War: Features introduced in 1.12 included:
Cross realm battlegrounds (Alterac Valley, Warsong Gulch, Arathi Basin)
World PvP
Some of the past things from previous patches that will be included as a result:
Ruins and Temple of Ahn'Qiraj - so this will be after opening those
Blackwing Lair
Darkmoon Faire
Raid dungeon timers, calendars and lockouts
The high level class dungeon armor sets
Weather
Quest experience for gold at level 60
Final destination flight paths
Linked auction houses
Some world holidays
Soul shard bags (!!!)
Expected issues with the first prototype
didn't recognize current video cards and was incompatible with the current login/authentication server (authenticator became available 2 Jun 2008, almost 2 years after 1.12's release on 22 August 2006)
Does not support modern security and anti-cheating capabilities
Second prototype: instead of going forward with old code, work backward: take the modern back-end code and use it to process Patch 1.12 game data
Start with modern architecture, security and stability - catalogue any differences in behavior between the development build and the Patch 1.12 reference build
Three types of game data:
Table data: numbers - hit points, stats, spawn timers, etc.
File data: dense data such as 3d models, textures, animations, terrain, user interface, and art models (don't use the same file formats as commercial art tools - no jpgs, tifs, etc.
Lua scrips: custom behaviors for server side logic without needing engineering knowledge
Engineering challenges
All classic data is in original form since launch, but format has changed substantially over the year. Modern client is not compatible with old data.
Master data problem: from single line on a master table to multiple linked tables catalogued by ID number
much richer environment but not compatible with the single line system
For example, spells could only apply up to three actions on a target in classic
In current form, spells no longer limited to three effects and are formatted differently
Almost all other data such as items, characters, creatures, NPCs, AI, spawning and more) have had their database formats changed
