A new mount is available in World of Warcraft: the Primal Flamesaber! All you need to do is play 15 games of HotS as a WoW character with at least one friend from your Bnet friends list. Wins? Losses? Doesn’t matter!  Not a fan of HotS? Well, to be honest, Stone isn’t either, however, it’s been known that he DOES have fun in there from time to time.

Stone is offering all WoW Challenges Patrons a friend to play with. While he’s not particularly great at HotS, it should be pretty easy to knock out 15 games against a beginner AI, right?

Are you on EU or US realms? From Australia? No problem…  we’ll work out some times where we can get on… the more the merrier! This event lasts from Feb.14 (Feb.15 for EU) through to Mar.14.

Here is a great guide from WoWHead on the event: http://www.wowhead.com/news=259985/acquiring-the-primal-flamesaber-beginner-heroes-of-the-storm-tips-for-wow-player

Love is in the Air has started and will run from February 7 through to February 21. We go over the WoWHead.com Love is in the Air Guide and let you know what’s allowed for your Challengers.

Quests: All quests are okay to do except for Blood Thirsty challengers.

Lovely Cards: The Lovely Cards (example: Lovely Undercity Card) are NOT allowed as they provide stat buffs for your character.

Love Tokens: These can be spent on a number of things, however, please keep in mind that the Box of Chocolates and anything that is a Cologne or Perfume are NOT allowed as they provide you buffs.

Dresses & Suits: There are white-quality dresses and suits that can be equipped, so these are fair game for your Challengers. No need to worry about equipping an item and getting flagged for it.

Apothecary Hummel: NOT ALLOWED as this counts as a dungeon. You’ll need to use your regular characters for your chance at the Big Love Rocket.

Collecting Charms: You’re allowed to collect charms for achievements if you want except Pacifists as the Lovely Charms require you to land the killing blow to receive the charm.

UPDATE: Feb-1

We’ve readjusted the code so that while you are allowed up to 10 Proximity Kills, we are still going to be limiting your killing blows. If you have 10 or less Kills, we then look at your Killing Blows.

0 Killing Blows = Green Flag
1-2 Killing Blows = Yellow Flag
3+ Killing Blows = Red Flag

Killing Blows are completely avoidable and are not applied to your stats like Proximity Kills are.


Around a month ago, we added code to look for Proximity Kills and updated our rules. Don’t know what PKs are? We’re not talking about Player Kills (for those that remember Diablo 1). Proximity Kills are a feature that was introduced in Warlords of Draenor where merely being near a mob that was killed around you would give you credit for the kill as well as possible loot. This was great for regular game-play and group quests, however, it was devastating for folks running the solo Pacifist Challenge where ANY kill would red-flag you.

We changed that to allow up to 2 kills as long as there were 0 killing blows (KBs).  This meant you could have up to 2 proximity kills and, as long as you didn’t deal the killing blow, would remain green-flagged and could continue on through the challenge. Initially the thought was the allowance would be more applicable to higher level challengers, and indeed, this resulted in our Legion first Pacifist champion Голаяправда, however, now we know without a doubt that these Proximity Kills will happen anywhere in the World of Warcraft. Our example was a Level 30 Pacifist who already had 3 Proximity Kills.

Based on the feedback we’ve received, we’re upping the limit to ten. That being you are allowed ten kills with zero killing blows and you can still remain green-flagged. Overall this is just under 1 proximity kill allowed per ten levels. While it’s fantastic that we’ve had someone make it to 110 with only 2 PKs, overall, we think the change will open the challenge up a bit to more folks but still have it remain challenging.

There was some thought on just removing the check for kills altogether and focus only on killing blows, however, this leaves a pretty large opening for folks to take advantage of groups and having a guard or escort. There is also some thought towards upping the limit to 150, to match the Blood Thirsty Challenge quest cap. Right now, 150 seems a bit on the excessive side and the reasons for quests for Blood Thirsty are quite different for accommodating Proximity Kills.

Overall, we’re leaving it at 10 proximity kills and see how challengers fare. All Pacifist characters have been updated and have had their flags reset if applicable.

Huge congratulations to the first person to ever complete the Blood Thirsty Challenge, Neverdiedbld! Neverdied is a veteran of the Ironman Challenge with several Iron Championships under his belt and had set his sights on the Blood Thirsty. With his Pandaren Hunter he has paved the way, showing that it is now possible to complete the challenge.

Leveling time between Level 10 (July 8 2016 18:44:44) and 110 (January 29 2017 14:45:50) was 207 days, 21 hours, 1 minute and 46 seconds. Much of that time was spent at Level 100 waiting for some much needed challenge rule changes to happen, especially since the character almost met its demise on testing the water in Legion.

Neverdiedbld now stands as the sole Blood Thirsty Champion on the Victory Podium: http://wowchallenges.com/index.php?Show=Victory&ID=75

Again, congratulations to Neverdiedbld!
