Without getting into too much detail (hopefully),

We looked up the logs for this, and the issue wasn’t a bug with the item. One of the players in the raid got caught with a 252 item on when a boss encounter began.

It was their boots.

When we update Classic Era to version 1.14.4 with scheduled maintenance on August 22, the new Honor and ranking system will be implemented. When realms go live on the new patch, PvP will resume as planned. When you log into Classic Era after the update, you will retain:

  • Most** of your lifetime kills.
  • Your lifetime highest rank.
  • Your current** Honor rank.

**Please note that PvP activities the week preceding the patch will not be counted. All Classic Era PvP calculations done during maintenance on August 15 will be the last for the old system, with the exception of weekly decay, which will still be accounted for on August 22. For example, if you were 90% into Rank 12 on August 15, there’s a high chance you will not be 90% into Rank 12 when you log in on August 22. You may have decayed down to 0% of rank 12 (or close to it).

To provide more transparency on the actions we take against cheating and exploitation, here is a breakdown on the number of actions that were taken over the last month, July 2023:

Total Exploitative WoW Account Actions in July 2023: 116921

All of these actions were for cheating or exploitation, which primarily result in permanent bans or 6-month suspensions. This number does not include other actions such as those taken on accounts with character name or in-game language violations. We continue to evolve our methods and act against these malicious accounts on a daily basis.

Thank you!

Please Join us on the Normal WoW Classic Era PTR realm tomorrow, Friday, August 4 at 2:00 p.m. PDT for another Brawl with the Blues event! We’re looking for one big final scrap to help us confirm all of our adjustments to the new PvP system are behaving as expected.

Hardcore

Multiple improvements have been made to Guild Death Announcements on Hardcore realms:

  • Death announcements can be disabled in the chat window configuration options menu under “Other”.
  • Guild deaths will display the creature that killed the player-character and the zone or area they died in.
  • A “Coward!” debuff will be inflicted on players that flee from a duel to the death. This debuff is i...

In patch 1.14.4, we’re opening some existing APIs that were initially hidden for Classic. These allow third-party websites and apps to retrieve in-game information as JSON text to display information to players or create useful tools, and we’ve seen more requests for them recently.

You can also check out the public API documentation for WoW and WoW Classic here, and we’ll update the Classic documentation as soon as possible. Until then, you can reference the similar WoW documentation on how to use the new endpoints.

Here are some of the APIs becoming public in 1.14.4:

Account Information:
/profile/user/wow

Character Information:
/character
/protected-character
/character/status
/character/equipment
/character/pvp-summary (N...

We want to make players who used the WoW Shop earlier today aware of an unexpected issue with the new Corsage Pack in the Shop. We deployed a hotfix for this at 11:31 PDT today.

Players who purchased the Corsage Pack before that time did not have their total Trader’s Tender amount update in-game, and will not see an update to their Trader’s Tender amount until they do a purchase at the Trading Post. After any Trading Post purchase, the additional Trader’s Tender should be displayed.

We apologize for any confusion this caused.

The estimate given can balloon when a high number of player-characters are all requested at the same time. For today’s new transfers, you can expect longer-than-normal times to process, and the time it takes will go down as the system works through them.

While today’s new PTR build is mostly focused on bugfixes, we want to share some other adjustments that we’re working on for Classic Era 1.14.4.

  • We plan to test a “Coward!” debuff for players who flee a Duel to the Death. We’re adding bespoke logic to this debuff, to help ensure that you cannot gain it while under the effects of crowd control.
