Hour of Twilight Patch 4.3 Notes

Hour of Twilight

Hour of Twilight

In the wake of the Cataclysm, Azeroth's champions rose up to thwart the forces of the maddened black Dragon Aspect, Deathwing. Thus far the world's defenders have shattered the power base of the Twilight's Hammer cult and defeated the raging elemental lords Al'Akir and Ragnaros. Yet despite these victories, as long as Deathwing is free to pursue his twisted goals, Azeroth will remain under threat.

No one is more aware of this fact than the great Dragon Aspects Alexstrasza, Nozdormu, Ysera, and Kalecgos. Together with the wise shaman Thrall, they have devised a plan to vanquish Deathwing with a weapon of his own design: the infamous Dragon Soul.

In patch 4.3, Thrall and the noble Aspects will call upon the Horde and the Alliance to help them retrieve the artifact--no longer in existence--from the distant past. Those brave enough to face the challenge will embark on a perilous journey from Azeroth's apocalyptic End Time to the Dragon Soul's point of origin during the catastrophic War of the Ancients. If the heroes succeed, an even more harrowing battle awaits them in the present....

General

  • New Dungeon: End Time
    • This new 5-player Heroic dungeon begins the quest to save all with a look at the desolate future of Azeroth, should its defenders fail to stop Deathwing.
  • New Dungeon: Well of Eternity
    • In this new 5-player Heroic dungeon, adventurers travel back 10,000 years in a brazen attempt to retrieve the Dragon Soul.
  • New Dungeon: Hour of Twilight
    • This new 5-player Heroic dungeon sets the final stage by bringing players face-to-face with the Twilight’s Hammer in present-day Dragonblight, where Thrall and the Dragon Soul must be safely escorted to Wyrmrest Temple so that the assault on Deathwing can commence.
  • New Raid: Dragon Soul
    • Players have the opportunity to take the fight to Wyrmrest Temple and beyond, assisting Thrall and the Dragon Aspects as they seek to bring an end to the Black Dragonflight once and for all. 10- and 25-person raids will get to take on Deathwing himself, with three levels of difficulty to consider and epic gear to claim.
  • New Baradin Hold boss: Alizabal
    • Alizabal presents an all-new boss challenge to player in 10- and 25-player arrangements who control Tol Barad. This boss will be available with the start of Season 11, one week after the release of patch 4.3.
  • New Legendary Item: Fangs of the Father
    • The most deadly and experienced rogues will play a central role in the fate of the world the rogue’s way: by manipulating key events from the shadows. Players will travel across continents to accomplish crucial missions of reconnaissance, burglary, infiltration and, of course, assassination. Rogues who succeed will receive a paired set of daggers that will become increasingly lethal as their bearer progresses along the legendary quest. At the height of their strength, they will be imbued with the vile essence of the Old Gods, as well as the maddened fury of the Black Dragonflight -- bestowing great power upon their bearer. These powers include a stacking increase to Agility which builds until dark wings unfurl from the rogue’s back, removing the combo point cost and increasing damage of finishing moves for a short time. In addition, the wings which can be spread on command (with no combat benefit) to slow a rapid descent, allowing the rogue to slowly fall to the ground… or enact a little death from above!
  • New Feature: Raid Finder
    • This new grouping feature allows players to quickly and easily form a pick-up raid for a specially tuned version of the current tier of endgame content: the Dragon Soul raid.
  • New Feature: Transmogrification
    • This new feature allows players to customize their gear like never before: copying the appearance of one magical item onto another.. You’ll find Transmogrification, Void Storage, and Reforging vendors in Cathedral Square, Stormwind and The Drag, Orgrimmar.
  • New Feature: Void Storage

  • Reforging
    • The former Reforging vendors have been... retired. The ethereals have chosen to take over the business and joined their Transmogrification and Void Storage service providers. You'll find them in Cathedral Square, Stormwind and The Drag, Orgrimmar.
  • Darkmoon Faire
    • Make your way to Darkmoon Island during the first week of every month to take in the new Darkmoon Faire, complete with new quests, shows, games, recipes, toys, balloons, souvenirs, snacks, beverages, achievements, and titles.

In addition, as it updates periodically during the fight, it's always set to at least 33% of the damage taken by the tank in the last 2 seconds. It still climbs from that point at the rate it did previously, still decays when damage is not taken, and still cannot exceed a maximum based on the health and Stamina of the tank.

PvP Season 10 Ending Soon

Arena and Rated Battleground Season 10 will have ended as of November 29. We will then determine who is eligible for the end-of-season rewards, a process that should take approximately one week. It's very important for players who feel that they may be eligible for Arena titles and/or the Ruthless Gladiator’s Twilight Drake to refrain from transferring their characters to another realm or faction until Season 10 officially ends after maintenance is finished on November 29. During the break between seasons, all Rated Battleground and Arena matches will be unavailable.

At the end of Season 10, Conquest Points will be converted to Honor Points, which offers the possibility of temporarily exceeding the normal 4,000 Honor Point cap. For the week, all Season 10 items will become available for Honor Points (at prices equivalent to their previous Conquest Point cost), with the exception of any items with rating requirements attached. Those items will no longer be available for purchase.

Arena and Rated Battleground Season 11 will begin for level-85 players approximately one week after the end of Season 10 on December 6. Season 10 titles and mounts will be awarded at that time. Also, new and more powerful items will become available for purchase with Honor Points after maintenance on that date, and any Honor accrued above the 4,000-point cap will be converted into gold at a rate of 35 silver per point. Finally, Season 11 rewards will be made available for purchase with Conquest Points which are earned during the new season.

All Team, Personal, and Matchmaking Ratings will be wiped when Season 11 begins.

Warlock Guide for 4.3 Normal Modes

This patch 4.3 Dragon Soul Warlock guide was written to offer you guidance through the first seven bosses in normal mode Dragon Soul and should contain relevant information for both raid sizes and all three specs. If you should find incorrect information or your questions unanswered just make a post and I'll try to look into it.

Talents: Currently all Warlock specs are fairly balanced and only marginally differ in output potential in a patchwerk scenario. None of the specs can be classified as non-viable, and you should use your best judgement when choosing a spec: Consider which spec you're most comfortable with, which spec is most beneficial to your raid group and which spec might work best at the current boss.

http://www.wowhead.com/talent#IrGr0hsGsdcZI:sMRodb (32/3/6 Affliction): While only slightly behind in ideal single-target DPS, Affliction is, as always, extremely powerful in it's own areas: Multi-target DoTting, executing, self-healing and fairly simple single-target priorities. The spec itself is rather set-in-stone and there isn't much you can change without a cost.

http://www.wowhead.com/talent#I0hZIRrf0uMRdocbb:V0adb (3/31/7 Demonology): Demonology remains as a highly competitive spec even after the Doomguard nerfs in 4.3 being extremely strong in burst damage, AoE and on-demand output. Note that the ideal single-target spec has changed a bit since the Incinerate buffs in 4.3: You can now ditch Bane for 3/3 Improved Corruption and stop using Shadow Bolt completely, making the spec somewhat easier to play. You can also set the talent points between Demonic Embrace, Fel Synergy, Demonic Rebirth, Demonic Aegis, Master Summoner, Demonic Empowerment and Aura of Foreboding as you best see fit. Note that with the higher amount of Impending Doom procs you will be getting with the Incinerate filler and haste from Dragon Soul gear you can eventually ditch Moonwell Chalice. Also worth mentioning (just because some people don't seem to know it): Felhunter is the best single-target DPS pet by a huge margin. Use it.

http://www.wowhead.com/talent#I0hZf0bZIbbfRbsRdo:Vozdb (3/7/31 Destruction): With recent buffs, Destruction rises as a solid contender in single-target damage with steady output, high survivability through Nether Protection and good mobility. The spec for for Destruction is almost as inflexible as that of Affliction, but you can optionally put 1/2 or 2/2 in Fel Synergy and have one free Major Glyph slot (or maybe even two as you won't need to Life Tap much.) Note that glyph of Incinerate is still not worth it.

Glyphs: Not much flexibility in here. Use the standard Prime Glyphs for all specs in all situations. Glyphing Soul Link is often recommended. Glyph of Shadowflame is useful on maybe one boss.

Tier pieces: Both bonuses are strong for all specs and especially if you're playing Demonology you'll want to try and rush 2x T13 as soon as possible to make Doomguard available for most if not all boss attempts.

 

Introduction: A solid and easy fight for a Warlock, not only will you find yourself constantly at Shadowflame range but you'll also have much easier time with the incoming damage than most classes.

Spec: Demo/Your preference

Glyphs: Glyph of Soul Link recommended, Glyph of Healthstone if you have free slots.

The fight and tips: Keep yourself close enough for Shadowflame but not too close to take amplified damage from stomps. You can and should go soak Resonating Crystals. When you get pulled to the boss for the Black Blood of the Earth, run away from the boss while casting Shadowflame and refreshing you DoTs and run behind the nearest pillars. If the pillar is close, you can just stand ~10 yards behind it and cast at the boss, if there's two next to each other you can stand between them and cast and if neither is true you should be able to stand near the black slime behind the pillar and have LoS without getting hit.

Mind that the Resonating Crystal deals Shadow Damage, so a Shadow Ward might save you on a tight spot. Also switching to Demon Armor could help if your raid is struggling to stay alive as the additional armor reduces stomp damage on top of the extra healing taken, but this obviously costs you some damage output. Good execute specs (Affli, Demo) help you deal with the soft enrage faster.

 

Introduction: Yor'sahj is a boss of moderate movement, heavy AoE and priority targeting. This might seem confusing at first, but simply follow any instructions given to you by your raid leader and you should do fine.

Spec: Demo

The fight and tips: Stand close to the boss at Shadowflame range until the boss starts summoning his Globules, and go for the one you're being told to if you don't know how they should be prioritized. Make sure the Globule that is being focused doesn't reach the boss at any cost, then get ready to deal with the Globules that got through.

If the Cobalt Globule got through, you'll have to deal with the Mana Void, and should place it as your #1 priority. Life Tap once to get your mana back and nuke it down. If they die fast enough you don't need to DoT them up much, but if you're Affli you can Soul Swap from the boss before the Mana Void Spawns. You don't need to care about being close to the Mana Void as you always have your Mana Feed and Life Tap.

After the Mana Void has been dealt with, if there was one, you'll often find the room filled up with Forgotten ones from the Dark Globule. Use your AoE abilities, especially Shadowflame, to deal with them and make sure you've got Felstorm for them if you're playing Demo.

You'll also need to be aware of the Crimson Globule which requires you to stand near the boss to not take too much damage.

 

Introduction: Zon'ozz is fairly simple on normal, just mind your positioning and do as you're told. There'll be moderate damage incoming periodically through the fight, but nothing you should really be concerned of as a Warlock. Most important thing is to never stand in front of the boss when Psychic Drain is incoming and not to mess up the bounces on Void of the Unmaking.

Spec: Demo/Your preference

The fight and tips: The bouncing strategy might vary a lot, so pay attention to whatever instructions you'll be given. Make sure you get hit by the splash when the Void is being bounced.

When the Void is taken into the boss you'll have a good time to pop your cooldowns and focus on doing damage, but don't completely ignore your health: Pop your Healthstone if you go low or use Shadow Ward. If you're Destruction Nether Protection cuts incoming damage a lot in this phase, make use of it if your healers are having hard time.

 

Introduction: Hagara is a bit of an all-around boss with heavy movement, some AoE and multi-targeting and from moderate to heavy incoming damage.

Spec: Demo is a good spec to default to, but if you're not too confident you probably should play whichever spec you're most comfortable with in here.

The fight and tips: As your mitigation as a warlock is good, you should move to soak Ice Lances immediately if you see them streaming into melee. When the Ice Tombs are coming make sure you're not one of them and then deploy your AoE arsenal to the tombs. Shadowflame is exceptionally good, you can even hit the boss as well as the shards if you land it carefully.

During Frozen Tempest, you can simply run around the platform (as close to center as possible without running into the wall) while dodging falling things and DoTting up the Binding Crystals. Just assign your pet on one crystal, throw Corruption and Banes while running and stop briefly to drop UA/Immolate and keep running while deploying instant casts like Soulburn: Soul Fire and Shadowflame on the crystals. You can skip one wave of Ice by having your Demonic Circle down somewhere and teleporting over a wave. Just remember that being alive is preferable to being dead so don't risk a death just for getting a little bit of damage on a crystal.

During Lightning Storm you'll just need to be wary of the incoming damage. If you have an assigned spot in forming of your Lightning Conduit, you can easily mark it with your teleport and get into your spot quickly.

And obviously try to have your cooldowns and potion ready when Hagara goes into increased damage state after a Lightning Storm.

 

Introduction: The mandatory patchwerk-with-a-twist of this patch, Ultraxion is a boss where you'll only need to do your best complete standstill DPS and damage mitigation. Also you'll conveniently spend the entire fight at Shadowflame range.

Spec: Demo/Your preference. 6 Minute enrage makes having more than one Doomguard impossible even with the set bonus, so this boss should be fairly balanced between different specs.

The fight and tips: Fiddle with your addons to make sure you never miss Hour of Twilight casts and Fading Light and you'll never have be the source of you raid leader's hair loss. You don't need to take one step during the entire boss fight and the only way you can screw up as DPS is by failing at those two abilities which are both dealt with the magical Heroic Will button.

You'll get pushed out of the Heroic Will realm as soon as the damage instance is meant to occur on Hour of Twilight, so as a confident DPS player you could take minor risks to improve your output by spending less time in Heroic Will, but don't overextend or you'll end up as your guilds laughing stock.

If your guild needs players to soak up the Hour of Twilight, you can do this fairly easily if you spec Destruction and pop Nether Ward well before the cast starts so it'll proc Nether Protection: Shadow and you'll have 30% + 25% mitigations on top of 2/3 Demonic Embrace and hopefully some damage absorption provided by your healers. You can also pop Soulburn: Healthstone for a Last Stand effect but it'll be a DPS loss and you'll have to remember that you can't use that if you're full on health as you can't Healthstone then.

When the damage gets hard remember to pop your Healthstone and tell your guild to do the same. Afterwards you can browse combat logs or Recount and find out who didn't use any and frown upon them.

 

Introduction: Lots of targets, bursty damage. Mind your positioning and target priorities and you'll get along just fine.

Spec: Affliction/Your preference

The fight and tips: Strategy might vary a bit between guilds. DoT up the Twilight Elites and switch to the Twilight Assault Drakes as soon as they get pulled in, and be sure to re-apply DoTs when they fly back up if they don't seem to die. Remember to keep your pet on the ground targets unless you play Destruction. Soak up the Twilight Barrages, but even as a Warlock you shouldn't try to tackle them alone, you'll die if you don't get a lucky resist. Be ready to move out for the Twilight Onslaught and deal with the Twilight Sappers.

Key to maximum output is keeping your DoTs rolling on as many targets as possible, but you still need to focus the Assault Drakes and Sappers and soak the Twilight Onslaught or you'll end up wiping. When P2 begins simply deal with Goriona, and then DPS the boss while traditionally avoiding any fire on the ground.

Glyphs: On top of Glyph of Soul Link, you might want to use Glyph of Shadowflame on this one as it works on the Twilight Sappers. Best part is it works even while the Sapper is invisible so you can just estimate their path and land a Shadowflame and they'll be snared hard before they reappear.

 

Introduction: A literal roller coaster with a lot of damage, target-switching and repetition. Not paying attention can lead to a huge mistake, but you should do well with a warlock of any spec.

Spec: Demo/Your preference

The fight and tips: Make sure you're hitting the right targets at right times and you're holding tight onto your ticket when the conductor comes. When you DPS the Hideous Amalgamations make sure you've got the lonely Corruption tentacles in your focus so you can switch to them as soon as they cast Fiery Grip. Don't hit Corrupted Bloods until you're told to or you'll cause some trouble. Don't burn your cooldowns on the Amalgamations but save them for the Burning Tendons, and be sure to Soul Swap off the Amalgamations before they die if you're Affliction.

Obviously use all your cooldowns on the Burning Tendons and any defensive abilities on Nuclear Blasts. Use Shadowflame a lot, it does massive damage on this boss. Make sure your pet isn't idle but hitting the right targets at all times.

The Warlock is a strong class in every boss of Dragon Soul with solid output and awesome survivability. Don't set too much store for patchwerk simulations but use your own sense when choosing the spec to raid with, technically they're all at least situationally viable on all bosses.

Hunter Guide for 4.3 Normal Modes

This is the hunter guide for Dragon Soul normal modes by Rinku. Even when hunters won't possibly be shining in the upcoming patch, here are some thoughts on how to squeeze as much as possible out of our class . This post doesn't take a position on which spec you should play. All the encounters mentioned are based on PTR experience and can vary from how they will be when released.

Overall about Hunters in Dragon Soul:

Cookie cutter specs - with glyph suggestions:

Beast Mastery - http://www.wowhead.com/talent#cfhfckGzRRofMZzb:zomcfV0Mc (source:EJ)
Marksmanship - http://www.wowhead.com/talent#ccbMZfRG0GMMuroc:zkV0fV0Mc (1235 haste AS dump)
Survival - http://www.wowhead.com/talent#ccZfMZcrhcMhrRsk:RsmV0fc0M (source:EJ)

Tier 13 set bonuses:

2-piece set bonus is really strong. Switch to 2pt13 immediately, even if it means downgrading from 391s to 384s.
4-piece set bonus looks good, how good it really is can't be said as the ICD and proc rate have not yet been reliably confirmed. Most definitely it will be worth picking.

Time will tell how we will do DPS wise. Our biggest problems at the moment are our minimum range limitations and lack of passive damage reduction or proper barkskin abilities, which makes us the most fragile class in the game.

Hints for all bosses in general:
Do you need to move fast? Use Disengage.
Taking a lot of damage? Try to keep up Glyph of Raptor Strike buff. Deterrence does not seem to function with most of the abilities.

 

Introduction: A fight with quite a lot of movement. Our advantage here is mobility offered by disengage. As a ranged class we can keep DPSing during Black Blood of the Earth. Single-target.

Deterrence: Doesn't seem to work for anything.

The fight and tips: Most important thing to note about this fight is the hunter unfriendly hit box combined with the Stomp soaking mechanic that requires you to stand close to boss. Instead of Ragnaros or Majordomo kind of luxury where you are able to shoot standing next to boss, it's once again a matter of finding the correct orbit. Aim where you get knocked with crystals. If healing seems dodgy raptor strike before each Stomp.

During Black Blood of the Earth use disengage to quickly find cower and try to find the sweet spot where you can fire without taking damage. This phase is probably the safest time to pop your second rapid fires as you don't have to move right away.

 

Introduction: Movement. Standstill phases vary based on your orb combinations from heavy damage, AOEing adds to single target nuking. Hunters will do fine on this fight IF you survive Searing Blood.

Deterrence: Doesn't seem to work for anything.

The fight and the tips: Disengage for faster movement to the spawning globules. Pop CDs during standstill phase unless you really need them to down a globule before it reaches boss. If it seems you can't survive Searing Blood try to use raptor strike, if the damage is still unbearable go stand in the middle of the boss and suffer the dps loss.

 

Introduction: Some movement to soak orbs and probably to pile up for phase 2-healing. Single-target.

Deterrence: Doesn't seem to work on anything.

The fight and the tips: Not much to say, press your buttons to max dps, use disengage for quicker movement. The later you time your cooldowns the more damage you deal due to the mechanic of the boss. It increases damage taken by him the further the fight goes on.

 

Introduction: Plenty of movement, damage soaking. Pet control. Single-target.

Glyphs: Kill Shot - it's easy to doupletap kill shots to binding crystals while running around the circle.

Aspect of Pack - you can put on aspect of pack to speed up your guildies, however it means you really can't dps yourself. And that they die if they fail with Icicle.

Deterrence: Doesn't seem to work for anything.

The fight and the tips: During normal phase you will probably have to soak some damage.

Disengage can be a life saver if you are in danger of falling too much behind during frost phase - don't worry you can't drop off the platform. Masters Call can be used to grant you slow immunity, thus allowing you to run through frost traps. To maximize dps you can put your pet to hit a single crystal while you run around.

Aspect of the Wild can be used during Lightning phase to reduce the raid damage. It's recommended to leave your pet hitting Hagara during lightning phase as the power surges didn't seem to function properly with pets. Pop rapid fire after phases when Hagara is taking +100% damage.

 

Introduction: A target dummy. Hunters can soak here.

Deterrence: IT WORKS ! Yup, hunters can and will soak Hour of Twilight with deterrence.

The fight and the tips: Go to Keybindings and bind Special Action Button 1. Press the Action Button when needed. As hunter you will probably have to soak every third Hour of Twilight.

To maximize dps roll face on the keyboard as hard as you can and pray you get as few Fading Lights as possible. Don't pop CDs when Hour of Twilight is near. Prepot when the lightnings around the boss disappear.

 

Introduction: Plenty of movement, plenty of target swapping, plenty of damage soaking. Requires pet control.

Deterrence: Doesn't seem to work for anything.

The fight and the tips: Assign your pet to attack the melee adds and move to your sector to soak and primarily focus the drakes whenever they are close enough. Immediately switch to Sappers whenever they spawn. You can slow them with concussive shot.

Do not use frost trap - it hides the bomb graphics.

Disengage is handy when avoiding the AoE abilities of phase 2.

 

Introduction: Quite little movement. Plenty of target swapping, but main focus on single target.

Deterrence: Works for avoiding damage from Burst. (Corrupted Blood explosion)

The fight and the tips: You can start attacking the Corruptions while still in air. Most of the fight will be spent DPSing Hideous Amalgamation and regularly swapping target to interrupt the Fiery Grip cast by Corruptions. Pop rapid fire when Burning Tendon appears.
