It’s been a week since World of Warcraft opened the doors to Battle for Azeroth’s first raid, Uldir, and that means it’s time for another round of unlocks. This week, players who have already blown through the challenges of Normal and Heroic Uldir and found them wanting will be able to test their skills in the Mythic version of the raid. Players who prefer their raid content to be more bite-sized and accessible are also in luck, as the LFR version of Uldir’s first wing, The Halls of Containment, is now open for business. If you’re planning to delve the depths of Uldir this week, Blizzard Watch has a handy guide to gearing up for, getting to, and ultimately conquering the raid’s bosses.
Meanwhile, in miscommunication land, WoW players may be somewhat disappointed when it comes time to crack open their weekly Mythic+ reward chests today. Although there have been multiple reports from BFA’s beta up through its launch that Mythic+ reward chests would have a chance to drop up to three pieces of gear, a tweet from Blizzard today confirms that each chest will contain only a single item. This has caused more than a little bit of frustration among the playerbase. As one Twitter user notes, “Articles have been published for months on this subject on your official sites and NOT ONCE did you bother to correct it until the day of it [becoming] actionable.” The devs have not issued any response to the outcry, and frankly, it seems unlikely that they will do so, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted nevertheless.
