Greetings!

First, thank you to everyone who hopped on the Season of Mastery Beta last week and helped us test out our first adjustments to Molten Core and Onyxia.

Going into Season of Mastery, our philosophy was to take a light touch when it came to changes to raid bosses and mechanics, and focus instead on restoring versions of raid bosses that existed in the game at one point or another during the course of original World of Warcraft.

We’ve brutally murdered the vendor who offered these on the Beta realms, and disabled the flasks for anyone who stocked up on them.

FYI, this third realm was opened so that we could test some background processes. It means literally nothing for gameplay or future plans for gameplay or anything like that.

It will probably disappear in a few days, once we’ve completed the analysis we’re doing behind the scenes.

Soldiers arise, stand, and fight! Bring victory at last to this fallen knight!

OCTOBER 22, 2021

Dungeons and Raids

  • Sanctum of Domination
    • Sylvanas Windrunner
      • Fixed an issue where the Death Knives warning aura could be accidentally removed by immunity effects, causing incalculable chaos.

Items and Rewards

Here you'll find a list of hotfixes that address various issues related to World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, Burning Crusade Classic and WoW Classic. Some of the hotfixes below take effect the moment they were implemented, while others may require scheduled realm restarts to go into effect.

Please don’t worry that any original starter gear might go away forever or become very rare.

We’re working on making all of those various older starter pieces available to players who want to obtain them.

On the Season of Mastery Beta, the Molten Core and Onyxia raids are scheduled to close at 4:00 p.m. PDT today. (about six hours from now)

Thanks to everyone who tested the raids! We’re working on some more potential tweaks to the them, and we’re planning to do some more raid testing after a future update to the Beta build.

We’ll let you know as soon as we schedule that.
