The Love is in the Air world event is right around the corner, and we’re sharing the love this holiday season.

We’ve heard your feedback on the frustrations with X-45 Heartbreaker’s low drop rate and feeling the pressure of having to farm the mount by cycling through as many alts as possible every day. From now on, the first Heart-Shaped Box you receive each day across your Battle.net account will have a greatly increased chance to contain the X-45 Heartbreaker mount.

Any subsequent Heart-Shaped Boxes you earn on your characters after the first each day will drop the mount at the previous, original rate.

Love is in the Air begins on February 6 at 10:00 a.m. PST in all regions. So spritz on your favorite perfume and head to the Shadowfang Keep event dungeon to defeat Apothecary Hummel for your chance at the fantastic flying fuschia fuselage you’ve fancied far too fervently for what seems like forever.

Good luck adventurers!

Hello champions.

We have identified an issue with the Solo Shuffle matchmaking algorithms that is causing issues with various PvP Group Finder queues. We are currently working to address the issue and we will provide an update once a fix has been finalized.

Added to this week’s PTR update:

NEW EVENT: THE STORM’S FURY

A new event has begun taking place in The Primalist Future! Head to the portal that can be found at the Temporal Conflux in Thaldraszuz, and The Storm’s Fury event will spin up every 5 hours.

The Primalists are bringing some of their strongest forces to bear to preserve their future plans and dominate Azeroth. You will want to head out with a group of mighty adventurers to seal their portals and defeat their mighty monstrosities.

For participating, you will receive Essence of the Storm, which can be exchanged for rewards. Look out for other vendors who can sell you items to help weather the storm, as the Primalists try to Freeze all of their enemies to the bone.

This will be testable in a later PTR update. We’ll provide an update once it’s available to test.

Season 1 is off to a roaring start, and we’ve been playing lots of dungeons and gotten lots of great feedback from players during this first week of Mythic+ in Dragonflight. While we want to be careful not to change too much as players are still figuring out the new dungeons, we’ve identified some areas where we’d like to act on feedback sooner than later.

The following Mythic+ dungeon tuning adjustments will go live with scheduled weekly maintenance this week (tomorrow, December 20 in this region):

Algeth’ar Academy

  • Aggravated Skitterfly Darting Sting damage reduced by 25% and should now try to sting different targets.

Hello everyone.

We recently made some adjustments to the Community Feast that was contributing to lag in the Azure Span slowly over time after each feast as servers were up for a few days. How has your experience in the Azure Span been recently?

These fixes should have improved the performance in the zone since the feast was the main culprit, but we’ll continue to keep a close eye out for any other sources of lag that may appear.

After reading player feedback, we looked at the number of large maps available to players in each pool per week and Pool C ended up with more of the larger maps than the rest. To address this, we swapped Tiger’s Peak from Pool B with Tol’Viron Arena from Pool C.

We’ve recently deployed a fix to allow for the Obsidian Collar to be eligible for socket upgrades. This change is retroactive to previously obtained collars upon logging out and back into the client.

The map pools are for Rated Arena and Arena Skirmishes at this time, not Solo Shuffle.

I’ve updated the original post with this information. Thanks for asking Mhortai.

Thanks for the catch Stagheim. I’ve updated the article with the caps:

  • The weekly Conquest cap will start at 1350 and increase by 550 per week.
  • The weekly Valor cap will start at 1500 and increase by 750 per week.

With the introduction of Nokhudon Proving Grounds as a new Arena map in Dragonflight, we’ve hit 15 total Arena maps that are available when players queue up. We feel that this is a large number to have in the pool at once and waters down a map’s impact in an Arena experience. That being said, we think it will be interesting and fun to divide up the maps into a rotation to keep the pool dynamic for players.

We feel a weekly cadence ensures players will see their favorite maps frequently during a season. Additionally, the decision for 8-map pools was made to compact the rotation so players will be able to more easily refine strategy on certain maps with specific compositions within a week.

After working with a few combinations, the iteration we will be implementing for Dragonflight Season 1 will be a rotation of 3 buckets with 8 maps each, that captured all our current maps:
