Guide to get the Challenge artifact appearance for Beast Mastery

The Mage Tower will be coming up again soon, along with another chance to earn the Serpentbite appearance for Titanstrike through the challenge scenario. It goes perfectly with our brand new sneaky snakes, don’t you think?

I just posted a guide to the Beast Mastery challenge on Wowhead that will hopefully help you complete this challenge. It has recommended gear, talents, macros/weakauras, and a full guide to the encounter.

The Beast Mastery one is a little less gear dependent than some of the others (at least in terms of item level), but healing legendaries make a huge difference here. Most people who complete it seem to have at least 1 of the 3 healing legendaries. I would have made a video, but unfortunately you can’t repeat the scenario once you’ve complete it (I didn’t know at the time).

Hope the guide helps. Good luck!

  

Hunter Transmog: Challenge Mode Weapons

Consider this to be your 6-month warning. Like the Challenge Mode armor from Mists of Pandaria, the Challenge Mode weapons from Warlords of Draenor will probably be going away forever in the 7.0 patch.  I remember the mad rush for people to complete the MoP CMs in the final days leading up to 6.0. I knew people with the gold to spend on carries who couldn’t get it done in time because of the sheer demand those carry groups were under in the final days. So if you want these? Don’t procrastinate!

What’s more, it looks like Challenge Mode transmogs will be going account wide for the same class. So if you unlock this stuff on a Hunter, theoretically you should be able to use it on any Hunter on your account. For someone like me who only plays Hunters this is pretty cool news. There’s no word yet if the weapons you unlock will be usable on other classes though. For example, Hunters can buy almost all of the weapons (except for a few), but I’m not sure that means you could use the 2H sword on a Warrior alt (don’t count on it).

More fancy new ranged weapons from the Warlords alpha

Wowhead just posted a bunch of new weapon models and there are some impressive hunter weapons in here. Most impressive of all (IMO) is the Challenge Mode transmog reward gun in the header image. There’s going to be a bow too, but it’s not in the game yet. But wait until you see the cool animation on this gun. You can use the 3D viewer at Wowhead or just view this handy gif I made of the firing animation. WANT.

Below are the other weapons added in this patch. If you missed the hunter class changes in this build, be sure to check out this post.
