WoW: Blizzard Issues Early Warning for Season End of Challenge Modes
This “season” of Challenge Modes in World of Warcraft will be coming to an end with the upcoming release of patch 6.0, Blizzard has announced.
In a new blog post today, the developer gave everyone a fair early warning by reminding that the upcoming patch will release soon. A specific release date wasn’t mentioned but a time frame of about three-four weeks out from the release of the new expansion was.
If you still need to earn your Undaunted title, Ancestral Phoenix, or class-specific Transmogrification sets, now’s the time to get out there and prove your worth.
Furthermore Blizzard has announced a clarification on the rewards.
Firstly all Achievements associated with Mists of Pandaria Challenge Modes will become Feats of Strength. As for the rewards themselves:
- Bronze: The “Undaunted” title for achieving a full set of Bronze medals will become account-wide.
- Silver: The Pandaren Phoenix mounts awarded for a full set of Silver medals will become account-wide. If any character on an account has earned a full set of Silver medals, all four variants of the Pandaren Phoenix (Crimson, Ashen, Violet, and Emerald) will become available to all characters account-wide.
- Gold: The cosmetic class sets will remain character-specific. Any character that has earned all nine Gold medals will still be able to repurchase the appropriate set, should they misplace theirs, from Challenger Soong or Challenger Wuli in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. Any characters that have earned one or more “Challenger’s Path” teleport spells by earning Gold medals in Mists Challenge Modes will retain those spells.
- Realm Best Titles: There are extremely limited titles that are held by the players who hold the best clear time for a given dungeon on a given server. Since those Challenge dungeons will no longer be available in Warlords of Draenor, their respective titles are also being permanently removed. There will be new Challenge dungeons in the upcoming Warlords season, and new titles for which to contend, however.
World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor is the fifth expansion pack in the MMO and will officially release on November 13, 2014.
