The news broke nearly a month ago, but the full impact of this change has still not been felt. Patch 9.1.5 in its current state has removed the ability to transfer in-game items in the in-game mail system, in exchange for allowing in-game mail to be transferred through the web browser. This was, until now, one of the only ways to freely transfer in-game items, which severely limited the flexibility of covenants. This change effectively repeals the limitations that this system imposed.
In patch 9.1.5, World of Warcraft finally saw the removal of the energy that was required to construct the new altar type in the warfronts. The problem is, though, that players have been able to build them without needing to prep the required materials. This has lead to a lot of complaints from players. In this post, we’ll cover what how the patch works, and what the patch did, and what the future plans are for the altar type.
We all know that the new content coming out of Blizzard is polished, but even with that in mind, some of the latest changes in patch 9.1.5 of World of Warcraft had left players scratching their heads. The new release removed the walls which block players from joining covenants, making them freely swappable. The patch also reduced the number of players who are allowed to join a covenent, down to two, which means you can finally be friends with the person you are playing with again.
We recently mentioned that the general design philosophy for World of Warcraft patch 9.1.5 seems to be centered on features that players have been requesting for a long time but that Blizzard has so far refused to implement. The removal of conduit energy, the ability to freely swap covenants for players at an undisclosed but high level of Renown, and a skip option for steps of the Covenant campaign already completed on other characters are among the more notable changes in today’s new developer update, which confirms that patch 9.1.5 will be released on the PTR in a few days.
So, why are we doing this now? The developer letter makes it obvious that Blizzard understands that conduit energy, in particular, adds nothing to the game, implicitly admitting that negative comments about the system was correct throughout the lengthy expansion testing phase. Covenants, on the other hand, are justified as providing an essential player experience in the early days of the expansion, when switching covenants was more difficult. Regardless, the expansion seems to be pulling the ripcord with force at this stage in production, under the present shadow of the corporate litigation and controversy, as well as the apparent mass exodus from the game.
Due to a lengthy series of controversies in the MMO and gaming sector over the past several years, including the Blitzchung boycott, huge layoffs, labor conflicts, and executive pay debacle, Activision-Blizzard is regarded a problematic business in the MMO and gaming industry. The company was recently sued by the state of California for fostering a work environment that was riddled with sexual harassment and discrimination, and the company’s disastrous response has added to Blizzard’s ongoing pipeline issues and the widespread perception that its online games are in decline.
The new patch for World of Warcraft is finally here! It’s called patch 9.1.5 , it’s finally available for download , and it does a number of important things. The biggest of these changes is the addition of new endgame raids, the most highly anticipated of which is Black Rook Hold . But that’s not all! The patch also removes the ability to freely swap into and out of the new raid at will. It’s possible that some may miss this, but it’s a good change for the game that should help with stability and diminishing instances of people quitting mid-raid because they’re frustrated with their group..
