Rextroy the paladin who soloed several mythic dungeons and Mother in Uldir is back with another video in which he soloes Vectis in 1-shot!

Soloing Vectis required a lot of time and effort, as he spent days before the timing was perfect to be able to kill the boss before the damage buffs run out. Since then this "bug" was fixed was Blizzard, and can no longer be done.

There is a certain NPC in Stormsong (the monkey as you see) that won't take damage from enemy NPCs when under 85% of max HP. You kite this NPC into the Alliance guards of Fort Daelin. They have a buff on their own that grants all nearby allies within 20 yards a 50% damage boost... that is multiplied.

When you reached 15+ of those buffs, your abilities will most likely deal 10-50M damage each. You need a warlock to summon you, and you need to accept at the right time when you got as many buffs as possible. You also need a fast loading screen. I noticed that /reload worked well to speed them up. The loading screen usually took 5 seconds of the buffs duration.

There is a limited number of Guards in the base, and if you aggro certain NPCs they will all leash back to their original point... Quite irritating.

You will also have some Alliance players that might kill the monkey without hesitating.

You might also get phased out randomly into another shard... Also an issue.

Each time it took about 15 minutes to gather the guards, if nothing went wrong. However it usually did. So for this you really needed good friends that would be up for waiting a long time between attempts, thankfully I have quite a bunch of them!

A stealth hotfix has been implemented, making several Island Expeditions achievements account-wide! With the recent experience buff to normal Island Expeditions, you can now easily level up alts without losing any achievement progress on your main character!

The affected achievements are:

These achievements are now marked blue, and progress on any of your characters will count towards the achievements.

An additional change was made for the https://www.wowhead.com/achievement=13128/im-here-for-the-pets achievement, buying and learning the pets from the auction house will now count for the achievement. In case you don't get any progress on the achievement, try to cage the pets and learn them again.

With Battle for Azeroth being live for over a month now, we are starting a new series of articles focusing on hidden mounts, pets and toys, as well as other secrets throughout Kul Tiras and Zandalar!

Gem of Acquiescence Hidden Toy

First in the list of Hidden Toys in Battle for Azeroth we have the https://www.wowhead.com/item=161342/gem-of-acquiescence, a hidden toy that does not appear in the Toy Box until learned, which also a part of the https://www.wowhead.com/achievement=12852/treasures-of-tiragarde-sound achievement, listed as "Secret of the Depths".

Alfakyn has written a guide for this toy, as well as pointed out that the damp scrolls related to it foreshadoww the coming of Queen Azshara of the Naga and the Old God N'zoth. There's been multiple signs of them throughout the expansion, but the scrolls and the altar specifically speak about "Her" embrace and "His" gaze, which could refer to both of them, "the drowned" which could refer to the Naga, and the "Sunken City" which could refer to the place they all live in the depths of the sea.
