Class Balance Changes – February 25, 2020

Post
1 day ago - Kaivax on Blizzard Forums - Thread - Direct

We’re working on a series of hotfixes to adjust class balance. We currently plan to implement the following changes with weekly maintenance (the morning of February 25 in this region):

Classes

  • Druid

  • Restoration

    • Rejuvenation now costs 10% base mana (from 10.5%).

    • Efflorescence now costs 17% base mana (from 21.6%).

    • Tranquility direct healing increased 11%.

      • Developers’ notes: These changes should improve Restoration Druid’s raid healing output, without much impact to their already strong capabilities in dungeons and Arenas.
  • Hunter

  • Marksmanship

    • Damage of all abilities increased by 5%.
  • Monk

  • Windwalker

    • Damage of all abilities increased ...

Need some Canadian culture in WoW

Comment
1 day ago - Kaivax on Blizzard Forums - Thread - Direct

My order is either a large double double and a fruit explosion muffin, or a large steeped tea three sugars and a honey crueller.

We’re working on a set of hotfixes to the game that should streamline upgrading your Legendary cloak via Horrific Visions.

  • Coalescing Visions now drop in higher numbers from Assaults and Daily Quests.
  • The Unique(5) inventory cap on Vessel of Horrific Visions has been removed, allowing you to carry as many Vessels as you like.
  • Up to 4 Torn Pages of “Fear and Flesh” quest items can now drop in Horrific Visions from objectives on the rank 7-11 Legendary cloak upgrade quests (was a max of 2).
    • You’ll need to clear more than two sides areas in one run to get more than two pages. The rank 13-15 quests will still drop a max of 2 pages, only from Lost Area objectives.

These updates will go into effect with weekly maintenance (Tuesday, February 25 in this region).

Illidan Awaits

Head to Outland to face Illidan and his cohorts once more in The Black Temple!

The Black Temple raid is available throughout the Burning Crusade Timewalking event. The difficulty is set to Normal and, like any Normal level raid, will not be available through Raid Finder. To take on this challenge, you’ll need to get your guild or a group of friends together, or head to Group Finder > Premade Groups. The raid scales for your group size (between 10 — 30 players) and your level and gear will be scaled back to match the raid’s challenges.

Want to relive the time you first defeated Teron Gorefiend? Face (face, face) the Reliquary of Souls once more? Witness the showdown between Maiev and Illidan before the final fight? Now’s your chance. Inside you can earn transmog sets, the pets you need for Raiding With Leashes III, a ...

5 days ago - Kaivax on Blizzard Forums - Thread - Direct

I’ve updated the OP here with a fix that went live with maintenance earlier this morning:

[WoW Classic] UI API Change for UnitHealth

Post
5 days ago - Kaivax on Blizzard Forums - Thread - Direct

With realm restarts in each region (just completed this morning for Americas realms), we’ve made a change for addons that query unit health.

Now, the UI API functions UnitHealth and UnitHealthMax return health values for NPCs (rather than percentages), information that a very large number of players have been generating with the Real Mob Health addon.

This hotfix has no impact on PVP, as these functions will continue to provide health percentages for enemy players or the units they summon, as before.

I asked on our end and it should be available on a select few trainers in the capital cities. If you’re not seeing that, you may want to give more feedback in the bug forums, so that it can be looked into.

With Battle for Azeroth wrapping up, we’re planning something truly spectacular for 2020 with some of the largest LANs we’ve ever held. The Mythic Dungeon International and the Arena World Championship are both bound to provide some of our best esports action yet.

Warsong Gulch Exit Portal Removal

Post
10 days ago - Kaivax on Blizzard Forums - Thread - Direct

In approximately two hours, we will deploy a hotfix to all WoW Classic realms that disables the exit portals from Warsong Gulch. Thereafter, players who need to exit the battleground will have to use the other means of doing so: /AFK.

We’ve seen an increasing number of reports of these portals being used in unfair ways, and we feel that taking this step eliminates the potential for unfair gameplay while making no change to the intended, legitimate flow of the battleground.

As always, we really appreciate and value all of the player feedback that raised the issue. Thank you!

As the final season of Battle for Azeroth gets underway, we’re planning something truly spectacular for 2020 with some of the largest LANs we’ve ever held. The Mythic Dungeon International and the Arena World Championship are both bound to provide some of our best esports action yet.

11 days ago - Kaivax on Blizzard Forums - Thread - Direct

Blackwing Lair opened at 23:00 UTC today, and we had the pleasure of seeing guilds from all around the world charge into Nefarian’s domain and make quick work of the 8 bosses therein. Throughout the race, we captured the names of the players involved and the timestamps of boss kills from all realms in all regions.

Razorgore the Untamed
At only six (and seven) minutes past the hour, the first guilds to complete the Razorgore encounter were:
