In this Developer Insight, WoW Developer Chimes takes you deep into the new upgrade system arriving with the release of the Embers of Neltharion content update.

One of the features in the Embers of Neltharion content update that we’re rolling out for Dragonflight Season Two is a new upgrade system that will replace many of the various upgrade systems currently in place, such as Valor and Storm Gear, with a single system that covers most of the game. This system will last for the duration of Season Two, and after that we’ll evaluate how well it’s working and whether we  want to keep it.

The Gnome-Sized Version

The basics of this system are simple: you’ll earn a new currency called Flightstones from just about anything you do— complete a world quest, kill a unique creature, run a Mythic Keystone dungeon, kill a raid boss, etc. You’ll also get items called Shadowflame Crests (or fragments of them), which come...

Battlegrounds is bringing back Battlegrounds Buddies for the mid-season update in Patch 25.6! Buddies are those friends, sidekicks, or pets that are specific to each Battlegrounds Hero and designed to synergize with their style of play. Buddies are earned throughout the match and can give you a big boost when you need it most! Now that Buddies are back, we’re building on that friendship with a few updates.

New Buddies!

Buddies are back for every Hero that had a Battleground Buddy before, but Battlegrounds has grown since Buddies were last here, so there are plenty of opportunities to make a new best friend! Heroes who don’t already have a Buddy will be getting their Buddy in Patch 25.6, like Murloc Holmes’ iconic new Buddy, Watfin!

Genji also gets a whole new look, going from cybernetic ninja to the cybernetic brawler, Genos! And, when it came to bringing the powerful psychic, Terrible Tornado to life, we knew no other Overwatch 2 hero could match her pe...

Patch 25.4.3 is a data-only patch launching March 2 with the following updates.

Hearthstone Card Updates

Dev Comment: Overall, this is a little bit of a lighter patch for Standard. We just had a big infusion of cards with the mini-set, so this patch is just looking to address two major outliers after that card infusion. We’re excited to see where the mini-set lands after these adjustments.

For Wild, we’ve been discussing potential updates to the mode. In this patch, we’re making changes to help curb some of the mode’s negative play experiences. We don’t view these changes as exhaustive, but we are working on some more long-term updates that we’re excited to share once they are more solidified.
