I’m sure I did. Let’s agree that I did.

There are two layers on every layered realm, that’s correct.

Two mages sheeping each other is one of my favorite things to ever witness in WoW.

I remember the first time I saw it, in Warsong Gulch in 2005. I was a Holy Paladin and one of the mages was a friend of mine who would scream very loudly on Roger Wilco at times like that.

Hello.

I’d just like to reiterate that Free Character Moves do not cause a cooldown on the Paid Character Transfer service.

I apologize for any confusion caused by imprecise communication about that. We looked into this case and we have a lot of certainty that the cooldown is working properly for players who have used a Paid Character Transfer in the last 90 days.

Our hotfix for this issue is now live. The benefit of a Zul’Gurub class enchant is canceled if:

  • The player is not the correct class to use the enchant.
  • The player is not level 60.

The item itself will not be destroyed, and the enchant text will still appear on it. If they have one, players can replace the nonfunctional enchantment with another one.

We have have a hotfix coming soon that will prevent this sort of trade from being operable in the first place.

We’re iterating on this change at this time, and holding off making the change previously listed here until we’ve tested other possible solutions.

Thank you!

We’ve seen the emergence of a Mistweaver build that does a great amount of healing using Rising Mist, and we’re working on a hotfix to address it.

When we buffed Rising Mist with the intention of making melee Mistweaver a viable playstyle, players discovered that stacking extreme amounts of haste and cooldown reduction can reach a breaking point of infinite duration on your heal-over-time effects. Even though it’s exciting to see people discover new builds and interactions, the sheer power level in this case is likely to have a negative effect on the healing game for the remainder of Battle for Azeroth.

This change is intended to prevent the infinite extension, while allowing Rising Mist to still enable an effective melee playstyle.

Each layer has its own independent spawn timers.

So when Kazzak or Azuregos decides to spawn on one layer, it doesn’t affect the other layer at all. This way, a dominant guild wouldn’t kill him, and then layer-hop to kill him again.

The Dragons of Nightmare are also tracked independently on each layer. All four dragons spawn at once on a layer when its time for them to do so.

FWIW, the fishing tournament is different. It’s tracked globally, and will only have one winner per realm each week.

And that is as high as we’re going.

  • Arugal
  • Benediction
  • Earthfury
  • Faerlina
  • Fairbanks
  • Herod
  • Pagle
  • Sulfuras
  • Whitemane

Additionally, we have also restricted character creation and transfers to the ...

Hello!

First and foremost, thank you to everyone who posted in the discussion thread about this difficult challenge. We’re going to use layering to address the most severe queues. There have been thoughtful posts there and elsewhere on all sides of this issue, and I want to take some time to talk about the most prominent concerns that were raised.

Considering the current population issue, both players and our co-workers on the WoW team have wanted to try many diff...

This is a known issue.

We had a bug on rollout that caused some locations to have no dragons. After fixing it, we decided that it was better to re-issue the command to make sure all locations got at least one dragon. The side-effect of this is: some locations will have a second dragon spawn after the first is killed, and the re-issue includes the randomization, so it could be the same dragon or it could be a different one.

For those locations, after the second dragon is killed, everything should return to the normal intended spawn behavior.

  • Survival Instincts now gains 1 Charge at Rank 1, and 2 Charges at Rank 2 (Guardian only).

  • With the Bloodtalons talent, now when you use Shred, Rake, and Thrash (was Ferocious Bite) within 3 seconds, the damage of your next 2 Rips (was 1 Rip) or Ferocious Bites is increased by 30% (was 50%).

Item level progression has been updated. Item levels now increase faster in lower character levels, and low-level creatures are better tuned to account for this and other factors.

Additionally, Gold rewards have been increased at all character levels.

The Dragon Aspect Ysera’s most trusted lieutenants have fallen prey to a dark power that’s corrupting the Emerald Dream and the denizens within. These four powerful dragons of the Green Dragonflight have passed through portals from the Great Trees to wreak havoc and spread madness throughout Azeroth.

Lethon

The sneaking corruption has darkened the hue of Lethon’s brilliant scales and empowered him with the ability to extract malevolent shades from his enemies to imbue himself with healing energies.

Emeriss

The dark power within the Emerald Dream has transformed the once-majestic Emeriss into a rotting, gruesome monstrosity.

Taerar

Taerar’s exposure to the dark force has destroyed his sanity, and along with it his physical form. The great dragon has become a specter and can split into multiple entities that possess destructive magical powers.

Ysondre

Ysondre’s f...
