Hello, Readers.

Halloween is coming up, and in preparation we give to you our Terrible Turnip Tales. If you're one of our newer members, and especially if you're new to collecting, make sure you check this event out. If you've got a tiny turnip just waiting to get leveled we can get you a fully grown version. If you don't have one, check our adoption tabs! The turnip is one pet we try to stock every chance we get.

Alongside this the countdown to Blizzcon is beginning. All the major E-Sports events have been reaching their finals and the pre-Blizzcon gear sale looks set to begin soon. It will be interesting to see what comes out of this year's Blizzcon; with Legion well underway, and how much we are already learning about the upcoming patch 7.1, it's hard to think of what they will find to talk about.

Hope you all have a good week!

LEVEL 25 TERRIBLE TURNIP EXCHANGE[/font]
October 3rd through October 31st
You’ve decided to go on safari in the Jade Forest in search of an elusive critter: a rare quality S/S-breed Leopard Tree Frog. You have plans of grandeur for this secretive little amphibian and only it will complete your new dream team. You’ve spent weeks trudging through the damp forest stalking little blue frogs, capturing them, and flipping them over to determine if each frog was the target of your hunt. Weeks later... you’ve nearly given up, and then suddenly you spot it. A rare quality S/S-breed Leopard Tree Frog. You quickly begin chipping away at the croaker’s health so that you can capture it, take it home and add it to your new frogified super team. Just then... The pet you have whittling down the tree frog gets a massive critical strike and before your very eyes, the elusive object of your animal quest is killed. Your heart sinks as you leave to pack up your camp and return to Stormwind/Orgrimmar without your super speedy blue frog.

If only you'd had the ever horrifying leveled http://www.wowhead.com/npc=63365/terrible-turnip with you when you stumbled over the pet you were after. You could have used http://www.wowhead.com/petability=826/weakening-blow and avoided slaying it and instead taken it home with you.

Enter this event to exchange your low-level Terrible Turnip for a level 25 Terrible Turnip!

October 3rd through October 30th
October marks the 75th anniversary of the animated Disney movie: Dumbo! We'd like to celebrate A3 style - with pets!

We have level 25s available for the following pets:
  • Elekk Plushie
  • Meadowstomper Calf
  • Peanut
  • Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm
All pets have been upgraded to rare quality!

As an extra special perk to this event is that all Elekk Plushies have been level to 24 instead of 25. This will allow A3 members to complete the last level on their own and obtain http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=9070/overstuffed.

Wild Pet Capture Service
Above all else... A3 loves collecting pets! Collection doesn't just stop at pets that can be traded and adopted though - there are a few worlds' worth of wild pets out there waiting for collectors, too! A few of us would like to offer our love of hunting wild pets to A3 members to help them also round out their wild pet needs.

Each week (sometimes a few times each week!) we will comb zones to help members find the wild pets they are still after. We will turn a zone upside-down and inside-out looking for your pet(s) and message you once we've found them. You will then come and capture it! If you would like to take advantage of this service, but aren't available during our typical times, please don't hesitate to contact us and ask about alternative days and times.

[/align]
Pet Suppliers
Do you want to help supply pets for adoption that A3 needs? We have a Pet Suppliers thread where members can sign up to sponsor certain pets they are willing to supply. When the supply of certain pets starts to run low or we have an upcoming project where we’ll need more of a certain pet – we’ll send out a notification about that pet to our suppliers! There is no guess work and no 24/7 farming because we’ll let you know when we’re in need of the pets.

There are no quotas to meet when supplying the pets that you signed up for. You can provide whatever amount you are comfortable with.

New Legion supply options were added on September 16th and new post-Legion options were added on September 26th.

This Month in WoW
Holidays

Brewfest [September 20 - October 6]
Brewfest is a time to enjoy the fermented fruits of the harvest: pretzels, cheese, and brew! The competing breweries Thunderbrew, Barleybrew, and the Ogres all come together outside of all the major cities in a bid to outdo each other with their special ales, meads, and beers. Brave adventurers are invited to sit back, take a pull, and sample the finest wares these brewers have to offer!

Hallow’s End [October 18 – November 1]
Hallow's End is a celebration of the break between the Forsaken and the Scourge. Many tricks and treats await adventurers seeking holiday fun, including going head-to-neck-stump with the Headless Horseman, visiting inns and cities for fun items such as masks and costumes, and eating way too much candy in one sitting.
Esports Live Events

European Regionals
The European Regional Championship will take place in Kiev, Ukraine, at one of the biggest esports venues in Europe, where eight teams will fight for a share of $100,000, and the top three teams will qualify for the 2016 World of Warcraft Arena Championship at BlizzCon 2016.

North American Regionals
On October 8-9, eight teams from North America will vie to secure one of the coveted three entries to BlizzCon in the North American Regionals.

Connect to Twitch to Earn a World of Warcraft Title
Show your love of WoW Arena competition and esports with a shiny new in-game title, Patron of War, when you connect Twitch to your Battle.net account and watch the Regional Championships.

BlizzCon Opening Week [October 28]
Ahead of the Grand Finals at BlizzCon, the top eight World of Warcraft Arena teams from around the world will play their first group stage matches on October 28. All eight teams will then travel to BlizzCon, where the teams who emerge victorious from the remaining group stages will do battle in a single-elimination bracket until the champions are crowned.
In Game Events

Darkmoon Faire [October 2 - October 9]
The wondrous and mystical Darkmoon Faire returns to Azeroth on October 4, and if you haven’t completed all of Silas Darkmoon’s new Darkmoon Races, now’s the time!

While this event is active, completing Broken Isles World Quests awards bonus reputation with the appropriate faction.

Timewalking Dungeon Event: The Burning Crusade [October 11 - October 18]

While this event is active, random Battlegrounds will award Honor at an increased rate.

Notable UI Changes Coming in 7.1
Patch 7.1 includes several changes to WoW UI functions, and we wanted to call extra attention to a few of them, as they may break some functionality provided by addons. This is not a comprehensive list of all of 7.1’s UI API changes, just the ones we thought addon authors would be most interested in. If you’re not an addon author, feel free to ignore this post, as it’s only covering technical changes to how addons interact with the game.

Unit Position changes

Several unit positioning/facing/range APIs have been restricted so that they will only return valid values when the following criteria are met:
• Unit is the active player or in the party
• Unit is not in any kind of instance PvE or PvP.

The following functions have been affected:
GetPlayerMapPosition
UnitCameraFacing
UnitDistanceSquared
UnitFacing
UnitPosition (note: when in the restricted state, the mapID return is still valid)

There are new ways to access units on the map:
"AddUnit",
"AddUnitFileID",
"AddUnitAtlas",
"ClearUnits",
"FinalizeUnits", It's illegal to call AddUnit after a call to Finalize in the same frame that this was finalized.
"SetPlayerPingTexture",
"StartPlayerPing",
"StopPlayerPing",
"GetMouseOverUnits",
"SetOverrideMapID",
"GetOverrideMapID",

Intrinsics

It’s now possible to create an “intrinsic” frame template. Intrinsics are similar to virtual XML templates but have a few special behaviors.

As an example, here is a simple intrinsic definition.

<Frame name="ExampleIntrinsic" intrinsic="true">
<Scripts>
<OnShow function="ExampleIntrinsic_OnPostShow" intrinsicOrder="postcall" />
</Scripts>
</Frame>

These can be created through CreateFrame like built-in widgets. Using the example above, you’d create a new ExampleIntrinsic by calling CreateFrame(“ExampleIntrinsic”).

These can also be created through XML elements anywhere a frame type could. For example:

<Frame name="ExampleParentFrame">
<Frames>
<ExampleIntrinsic parentKey="Example">
<Scripts>
<OnShow function="ExampleIntrinsic_OnShow" />
</Scripts>
</ExampleIntrinsic>
</Frames>
</Frame>

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, intrinsics can apply special ordering to their frame scripts. Additionally, once an intrinsic frame script is bound to the frame, it cannot be rebound. However, it can be hooked and inspected. For example, in the definition above the global function “ExampleIntrinsic_OnPostShow” is bound to an instantiation of ExampleIntrinsic. It’s intrinsicOrder is “postcall” which means that this OnShow handler is called after the normal OnShow handler.

The ExampleIntrinsic_OnPostShow cannot be replaced. However, it can be hooked via HookScript or inspected by GetScript by passing in an additional optional argument with either LE_SCRIPT_BINDING_TYPE_INTRINSIC_POSTCALL or LE_SCRIPT_BINDING_TYPE_INTRINSIC_PRECALL. Specifying “precall” for the intrinsicOrder means that the handler is called before the normal OnShow handler. An intrinsic can have both a precall and a postcall.

For an example of usage, see the new ScrollingMessageFrame.xml and the corresponding ScrollingMessageFrame.lua files.

Nameplates

In patch 7.1, addons have been restricted from acting on nameplate. Addons can still gather information, target, and customize nameplates, but can no longer use their unit tokens for spell casts. This is similar to how nameplates worked in Warlords of Draenor.

Functions were added to help addons:

Added:
SetNamePlateFriendlySize,
GetNamePlateFriendlySize,
SetNamePlateEnemySize,
GetNamePlateEnemySize,
SetNamePlateSelfClickThrough,
GetNamePlateSelfClickThrough,
SetNameplateFriendlyClickThrough,
GetNameplateFriendlyClickThrough,
SetNamePlateEnemyClickThrough,
GetNamePlateEnemyClickThrough

These functions allow a specific area on the nameplate to be marked as a preferred click area such that if the nameplate position query results in two overlapping nameplates, the nameplate with the position inside its preferred area will be returned:

SetNamePlateSelfPreferredClickInsets,
GetNamePlateSelfPreferredClickInsets,
SetNamePlateFriendlyPreferredClickInsets,
GetNamePlateFriendlyPreferredClickInsets,
SetNamePlateEnemyPreferredClickInsets,
GetNamePlateEnemyPreferredClickInsets,

Removed:
SetNamePlateOtherSize
GetNamePlateOtherSize

Hotfixes: October 6
Here you'll find a list of hotfixes that address various issues related to World of Warcraft: Legion. Some of the hotfixes below take effect the moment they were implemented, while others may require scheduled realm restarts to go into effect. Please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch update. This list will be updated as additional hotfixes are applied.

Additional information about the expansion can be found below.

October 6

Hotfixes

Classes

  • Warlock
    • (Destruction) Dimensional Rift will no longer spawn portals that are out of range to do damage to your target.
Mythic Keystone Dungeons
  • Artifact Power rewards from end-of-run Mythic Keystone chests now increases with the Level of the Mythic Keystone Dungeon.
  • When beating a Mythic Keystone timer by a margin so significant that your Keystone is upgraded by more than one step, you will earn multiple loot chests as before, however, the additional chests beyond the first will no longer contain Artifact Power.
    • Developers’ Notes: These changes are aimed at aligning the efficiency of the different tiers of difficulty, so that a well-geared group of dungeon experts is rewarded more for tackling a high-level Mythic dungeon, rather than incentivized to stomp an entry-level dungeon.
Items
  • The Archaeology World Quest heirloom reward Spear of Rethu should now be item level 700, as intended (was item level 605).
October 5

Hotfixes

Classes

  • Druid
    • Moonkin Aura can no longer stack on targets.
  • Paladin
    • Steed of Glory now properly makes the Paladin immune to stun effects.
  • Shaman
    • Spirit Link Totem should no longer be damaged by Druids’ Rage of the Sleeper or Brambles.
  • Warrior
    • (Protection) Fixed a bug where Vengeance could cause Ignore Pain to consume less Rage than intended, but absorb for more.
Class Halls
  • The cooldown for all Class Hall abilities which allow you to instantly complete a World Quest has been reduced from 3 days to 18 hours, and the time taken to complete the work order for the item used by these abilities has been reduced to 10 minutes.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes hid the barrier blocking the Feralas Portal in the Emerald Dreamway for Druids who have previously sealed it.
  • Priest dungeon quests from missions will now be turned in to Moira Thaurissan, rather than Alonus Faol, who sometimes has other things to do.
Dungeons and Raids
  • The Arcway
    • Forgotten Spirits will no longer respawn in The Arcway.
    • Timeless Wraiths will no longer attack players before they've been Banished In Time.
  • Halls of Valor
    • When Olmyr the Enlightened or Solsten are engaged, the door to Hyrja's room will shut while they are in combat.
PvP
  • Druid
    • Fury of Elune can no longer be cast during Arena and Battleground preparation.
  • Demon Hunter
    • Demon Hunters now start arenas with 0 Pain and Fury.
  • Rogue
    • Shadowy Duel now prevents you from assaulting bases in Domination battlegrounds such as Arathi Basin.
  • Shaman
    • Fury of Air can no longer be cast during Arena and Battleground preparation.
Quests
  • High-level players should now be eligible for the "Trial of Faith" scenario during the Garrison Campaign.
  • In the Withered Army Training scenario, it should be less likely for Leystalker Dro to be hiding somewhere that he wouldn't normally be encountered by clearing the room.
  • Enigmatic puzzles should no longer become non-responsive when a large number of players try to do the same Enigmatic World Quest puzzle.
October 3

Hotfixes

Classes

  • Mage
    • Splitting Ice should now cause Glacial Spike to damage the secondary target for 80% of the damage dealt to the primary target, as intended.
  • Monk
    • Stagger now delays 40% of damage taken (was 35%), and now quickly fades after leaving combat.
  • Shaman
    • (Restoration) The Artifact trait Tidal Pools will now correctly heal all areas when multiple Tidal Pools are active at once.
  • Warlock
    • Shadowflame's damage over time can now critically strike.
  • Warrior
    • Shield Slam now generates 20 Rage (was 10).
    • Ignore Pain’s maximum absorption has been reduced by 33%.
    • Inspiring Presence no longer stacks on players who have multiple Warriors present.
Dungeons and Raids

(All dungeon and raid hotfixes will take effect with realm restarts in each region.)
  • Black Rook Hold
    • Mythic Keystone target time increased to 38 minutes (was 35 minutes).
  • Eye of Azshara
    • Mythic Keystone target time decreased to 35 minutes (was 36 minutes).
  • Maw of Souls
    • Mythic Keystone target time decreased to 24 minutes (was 25 minutes).
  • Neltharion’s Lair
    • Mythic Keystone target time decreased to 33 minutes (was 35 minutes).
  • Emerald Nightmare
    • Vantus Runes can now be used in Mythic Emerald Nightmare.
        Il’gynoth
        • On Mythic difficulty, Il’gynoth’s health has been increased by 200%, but loses one-third of that value each time the Eye of Il’gynoth is defeated.
        • On Mythic difficulty, each Nightmare Explosion now deals 20% more damage to the Eye of Il’gynoth.
          • Developers’ Notes: A common strategy for Mythic Il’gynoth involved using raid compositions that focus on maximizing burst damage to complete the encounter in a single phase. This approach removes huge portions of the encounter and can overly favor a specific set of classes and specializations, causing negative social pressures in groups that have yet to reach this encounter. These changes ensure that raid groups must enter Il’gynoth’s core twice in order to complete the encounter on Mythic difficulty, but offset that change by speeding up the process of destroying the Eye to shorten the overall length of the encounter.
    Professions
    • Enchanting
      • Crafted items that upgrade to epic quality should now disenchant into Leylight Shards or Chaos Crystals.
    PvP
    • Shaman Totems will no longer take unintended extra damage from players.
    Quests
    • Players are now able to turn in "Ritual Ruination" to Calydus in Dreadscar Rift if they don’t take the portal out of the scenario.

    Connecting A3ers through Discord
    [col]ImageA3 is always looking for new and interesting ways to connect with its members. One of our greatest hurdles, though, is connecting members to each other. With everyone playing on different servers, different factions, and the limitations of the friends list – many of you have probably never had a chance to connect. We hope to use the Discord App to help solve that!

    The major perk of an app like Discord is that communication is live. Meaning – you can see it on the fly (assuming you are logged in). This will be an advantage over the forum or twitter where you need to check in throughout the day. It will be especially helpful with organizing groups, sharing rare spawn information with others, or just getting to know your fellow A3ers!|[/col]

    [col3]Did you know that A3 has bills? It’s true! A3 has monthly and yearly bills related to the cost of operating the Agency. We earn some funds from ads on the site but most of A3’s operating costs are paid out of pocket.

    Operating costs are the costs required to run the community – these do not include the costs of sponsoring giveaways.|A3 is a volunteer operated project and we need the help of our members to keep the site online.

    Currently only 5% of our members have contributed to assist with operating costs. 1% of our members have contributed more than once.

    A few spare dollars here and there can go a long way!|Donations are accepted through PayPal. A PayPal account is not required to donate.
