Patch 6.2.3 coming on 17.11.15

As informed a couple of weeks ago, Blizzard was implementing a patch onto the PTR (6.2.3), to give us some content. Sadly, this is likely to be our last installment until Legion, but I’m sure you’d agree with the old adage “Something is better than nothing” is well suited for this patch. The release of the patch will hit live tomorrow, Tuesday 17th November (Wednesday 18th November [EU]).

If you’ve missed the news about Patch 6.2.3, and want to know whats coming, then fear not, here’s a link to Wowheads Patch 6.2.3 Survival Guide.

Although I’m fully aware that this is nothing more than a filler patch to occupy us till the release of Legion, I still appreciate the fact that Blizzard were good enough to give us something. I’m looking forward to the new Cataclysm Timewalking Dungeons and to further boost my gear, thanks to the return of the Valor system.

As you’ll know, I don’t raid, due to time restrictions, but I will in time, be looking at purchasing a boost for HC or Mythic Archimonde. At the moment, the 80k-100k for a spot, seems a little steep, especially, when you only want the boost, for the new ilvl 800 Heirloom Trinket. Either way, I’m happy to wait it out. History shows us that the closer you get to a new expansion, the lower the price goes down.

Cya in-game guys and as ever, thank you for reading!

Mythic Dungeon Level 110 Heirloom Trinkets

Following on from my post yesterday regarding Patch 6.2.3 Preview, something I missed, was the news of a Heirloom Trinkets which scales to level 110.

If you remember towards the end of the last expansion of Mists of Pandaria (MoP), when we had to defeat Garrosh Hellscream in the Siege of Orgrimmar, we had a 100% chance to acquire a heirloom weapon for our selected class/spec that scaled up to level 100, to help level within Warlords of Draenor (WoD). Well this time, in a bid to help level when Legion falls, we’ll have trinkets which will scale up to level 110. The trinkets will have a chance to drop from running WoD Mythic Dungeons.

Guilds were constantly selling boosts for Garrosh Hellscream in the last expansion, due to the high demand for the heirloom weapons. However at this early stage, it’s unclear of the drop rate for the trinket, but if it turns out to be another 100% drop rate, then don’t be surprised to see a flood of trade chat messages, looking to sell boosts to people desperate enough to get their hands on one.

You’ll also notice that the trinkets are ilevel 715 at level 100 and go to a maximum ilevel 800 at level 110! I think it’s also too early, to question whether they’re good enough to out do any of the trinkets you may already have, but suppose that knuckles down to what you have already. Without doubt this is an ideal opportunity for a low geared alt and when you start levelling in legion.

Loot Specialisation:
Be careful of your loot specialisation when running a Mythic dungeon. If you’re fortunate enough to earn one of the trinkets below, you will earn a trinket for your specialisation that you have chosen. Simply right click your avatar/player frame and under loot options, change your specialisation.

The Trinkets:
Judgement of the Naaru
Gronntooth War Horn
Orb of Voidsight
Infallible Tracking Charm
Purified Shard of the Third Moon

Server Hop or Cross Realm Assist:
If you’re struggling to find groups to complete a Mythic dungeon, make sure you download one of these addons called Server Hop or Cross Realm Assist. These are fantastic addons, that help you to find groups. I use these to find groups for Mythic dungeons or my weekly Kazzak kill. Be aware of restrictions to most groups, i.e. some may have ilevel restrictions to guarantee you’re well geared and can assist your team mates in battle. Be sure to read any tactics or ask before you start. People appreciate someone asking if they don’t know, than just jump in and wipe and it’s you’re fault for not asking or reading up.

Remember, this has only recently been added to PTR so could be subject to change at anytime. Be sure to check out for updated information regarding the trinkets.
