Hello.

I just confirmed with our dev team that yes, we intend Chronoboom Displacer to be usable in version 2.5 so that players who are raiding Naxx during pre-patch shouldn’t experience any difference.

I think the datamined item is just an older design that’s still hanging around, but isn’t being used at this time.

Not only is this an option; this is the only option.

The mount will move at 60% speed if you do not have epic riding and it will move at 100% if you have epic riding.

It’s a part of our process to have fully configured and tested Classic Era realms alongside what are soon-to-be Burning Crusade Classic realms. This stage of our testing requires a realm in each region that we can access (but players cannot).

The name is just a name that we chose in each region from a list of previously unused names.

It will probably disappear from the realm list in a few days. It doesn’t have any other purpose.

On November 3, 2020, we posted an update to our policy for input broadcasting software, and soon thereafter, we began taking action against accounts found to be using third party software to automatically mirror keystrokes to multiple game clients. We find that, like full automation of play, multiple-account mirroring disturbs the gameplay experience for the vast majority of players who control a single account at a time.

We will now additionally prohibit the use of all software and hardware mechanisms to mirror commands to multiple World of Warcraft accounts at the same time, or to automate or streamline multi-boxing in any way. Players found to be in violation of this policy are subject to account actions. These actions can include warnings, account suspensions and, if necessary, permanent closure of the player’s World of Warcraft account(s), as activities which effectively replicate automated gameplay are contrary to the terms and conditions of the Blizzard End-User Licens...

With a hotfix that was applied a few minutes ago:

  • The rating requirement to earn progress for the Vicious War Spider rated PvP seasonal mount has been lowered to 1000 (was 1400).

As a reminder, you can check your progress toward earning your Spider mount in-game by opening the PvP window (default hotkey = “h”) and selecting the ‘Rated’ tab on the left.

Rated Arenas are now available in the Burning Crusade Beta.

Please use the in-game bug reporter if you come across any bugs anywhere in the system.

And please feel free to post your feedback here on how it’s all working for you once you’ve tested it.

Thank you!

This is correct. During Season 2, there will no longer be a rating requirement to purchase Season 1 gear.

It was indeed worded incorrectly.

I’ve struck the words “and equip” from this note:

  • All PvP gear will have consistent personal rating requirements to purchase.

You don’t need to retain rating to equip an item, rating is only required to purchase it.

I’ve also added the following PvP notes:

  • At least 50 games played are required to qualify for a seasonal reward.
  • There are no rating requirements to purchase Arena gear from a previous season.
  • Season 1 gladiator weapons that were added in patch 2.1 (Gladiator’s Gavel, Gladiator’s Salvation, and Gladiator’s Reprieve) will be available from the beginning of Season 1.
  • The commentator UI for wargames has been updated with a fresh new look.

Later this morning, we’re enabling rated Arena testing in the Burning Crusade Beta. Please leave your feedback on it in the dedicated feedback thread after you’ve tested it.

We’re also enabling world bosses. Please note that once Kazzak and Doomwalker are killed in the Beta, they will respawn on their natural random timers, and should not be expected to respawn at the same time later in the week.

Player versus Player

To bring about better matchmaking in Burning Crusade Classic, we’re updating the Matchmaking Rating (MMR) system to use a calculation design developed after original Burning Crusade, with an MMR range that will be similar to the range seen in PvP in 2008.

  • Arena Teams will begin at 0 rating. (Teams began at 1500 in original Burning Crusade.)
  • Diminishing returns will have a 15-20 second cooldown window.
  • All PvP gear will have consistent personal rating requirements to purchase and equip.
    • Shoulders = 2200
    • Weapon = 2050
    • Head = 1700
    • Chest = 1600
    • Legs = 1550

A major goal we have in Burning Crusade Classic PvP is to provide consistency as we step forward through each Season and phase of content. We believe this will promote a healthier PvP environment that emphasizes the prestige players can feel when obtaining shoulders and weapons in pa...

  • Throughout Burning Crusade Classic, using Leatherworking drums will invoke the Tinnitus debuff, preventing reuse for two minutes.

Over the first few weeks of testing in the Burning Crusade Beta, we’ve found it useful to elaborate on and bolster the “some changes” philosophy that we expressed at BlizzConline (and in posts like this one). As we’ve said, we’re open to making further alterations to Burning Crusade Classic, and we’re guided by the goal of authenticity in how the game plays, especially given how players in 2021 approach a game that was designed in 2007.

We’ve decided make the following updates to Burning Crusade Classic:

  • “Lesser” versions of Leatherworking drums will be available from the beginning of the expansion, and will approximate how drums operated in the first few patches of original Burning Crusade.
  • “Greater” versions of the drums will become available with the phase that in...

Due to unforeseen technical difficulties, we have to cancel this test.

We’ll let you know as soon as we’ve fixed the problem, and we’ll schedule this test again in the coming days.

Thank you!

On the Badge of Justice Beta realm, we’ve updated character templates in the latest build.

Specifically, we’ve fixed some gear inconsistencies, brought template characters up to max reputations, and added things like multiple max-level pets for hunters.

Please create a new test character to test with these changes.

Thank you!
