Developers' notes: There is a known issue with how this is displayed. The chat log text will display 200 reputation gained, while the actual amount of reputation gained for completing this Quest is 400.
Significant adjustments have been made to the Prophet Skeram encounter.
Players will now find piles of "Quick Sand" scattered throughout the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj. Interacting with these piles will grant nearby players a stackable bonus to movement speed (both mounted and un-mounted).
Raid groups that manage to defeat the Prophet Skeram to gain access to the tunnels beneath Ahn'Qiraj will encounter the "Prophecy of Chaos" and may interact with this mysterious object to receive dark whispers and enable additional challenges in the Temple of Anh'Qiraj.
New Prophecy of Chaos mechanics become available as players reach new reputation levels with the Brood of Nozdormu.
Defeating bosses while under the influence of the Prophecy of Chaos will result in increased loot rewards, scaling with the difficulty chosen.
Developers' notes: While this encounter has not seen the addition of any new mechanics, players should now find that they will need to engage the existing mechanics in a much more meaningful way. Even in Original World of Warcraft and WoW Classic, this encounter always felt like it was a step down in difficulty relative to everything else in the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj, and the nature of these changes should make even the base version of the encounter feel more dangerous in Season of Mastery.
C'thun[sic] has been restored to his original, most horrific form.
Developers' note: By popular demand, we've implemented the "pre-nerf" version of C'thun[sic] in all of his mathematically impossible glory.
Adjustments have been made to certain professions and the availability of many crafting materials:
Removed the level 60 requirement for alchemists to proc additional items from successful crafts.
The respawn times of almost all herbalism nodes have been significantly adjusted.
Developers' notes: In many cases the minimum and maximum respawn times have been reduced by half, or more. This is in addition to the respawn timer changes made in earlier content phases of Season of Mastery.
