If you're at #BlizzCon2018 and would like to ask us a question in person, hurry to the Darkmoon Faire (on the upper level of the North Hall) and look for the mailbox! We're still accepting questions until later this evening.
The Alliance Hall of Fame is now full. Starting tomorrow in the Americas, and following with scheduled weekly maintenance in each region, Mythic Uldir will be opened to cross-realm raiding, and the Hall of Fame achievement will no longer be available to Alliance guilds.
All of the WoW discussion forums are read-only right now, as we move to new forum system. Thank you for testing-- please hold onto your feedback and post it after the update. More here:
After our earlier tweet, we are working on a hotfix so that the Coldlight Surfrunner can drop when ANY murloc type is present on an Island Expedition. Furthermore, we're simplifying this entire system in Tides of Vengeance. More details on that soon. https://t.co/JpWmdO8NnC
Yes. In Tides of Vengeance, fist weapons can appear to be maces, one-hand axes, or one-hand swords, and maces, one-hand axes, or one-hand swords can be made to look like fist weapons. https://t.co/LPP0yOV5i9
There was an issue that caused the damage and healing numbers for lower item level players to be displayed much higher than their actual contributions on the end-of-match scoreboard. This issue is fixed in Tides of Vengeance. https://t.co/l2PmQEQnoW
In maintenance, we're fixing an unintended change to Spirit Mend. You'll see in our hotfixes update later today:
--Fixed a bug with Spirit Mend that caused it to heal for less than intended. https://t.co/FpB01EsTsW
We're applying a hotfix to Uldir today:
Zul's health has been reduced by 5% on Mythic difficulty.
This is to address the fact that Tides of Vengeance removed the Subtlety Rogue passive Shuriken Combo, which was a core part of many guilds’ strategy on this fight.
We have reverted yesterday's change to require Profession skill for using high iLvl crafted items. This will be a requirement on future items, but for now you should be able to again wear the crafted gear you've been using.
Earlier today, a bug was active for a short window of time (roughly 1:15 PM to 1:45 PM Pacific) that caused Island Expeditions to award extreme amounts of Artifact Power. The bug has been fixed, and we'll be removing the unintended extra AP gains in the coming days.
This note was included in the patch notes by mistake (it was a remnant of a change early in development that included a major nerf to the trait, which was reverted before Tides of Vengeance was released). We're correcting the patch notes; apologies for the confusion! https://twitter.com/TsunAmik_89/status/1074937859533086720
Yes. Our original intention was to require defeating Heroic Zul with a raid of only Hunters. However, there was a bug that caused it to be granted to a few Hunters through unintentional means. In the spirit of fairness, we've made it drop from any Normal or higher Zul kill. https://twitter.com/secretfinding/status/1076937754326458368
With this week's restarts, a hotfix is being applied applied that causes items not intended for your class to no longer provide Titan Residuum when disenchanted or scrapped.
This fix is now live in NA/ANZ, and will be live with the upcoming restarts in the remaining regions.
It appears that a PTR tuning hotfix for the Stormwall Blockade encounter didn’t make it to the live servers. We’ll be applying that hotfix, and we're also reducing health and damage of several portions of the encounter, shortly. https://twitter.com/Squishei/status/1087770778102349826
In a hotfix on December 14, Bursting went from 10% to 14% of maximum health per stack (over 4 seconds). A bugfix late in Legion had removed occasional extra Bursting ticks, but made the affix something you could almost ignore. This change restores it to its original lethality. https://twitter.com/Tenatia1/status/1087792638831427584
In today's hotfixes: adjustments to new PvP trinkets, a fix for scrapping the new Engineering goggles, and Emissary armor, weapon caches, and rewards from faction assaults now reward the item by loot specialization.
The Against Overwhelming Odds quest is only offered to a faction when they have recently been severely outnumbered, with a War Mode bonus of 20% or more. This week, Alliance players have a 15% War Mode bonus in the American region.
We've updated our hotfixes blog post with the latest updates. Most are now live in the Americas, and many of the tuning changes will go live with scheduled weekly maintenance in each region:
In 8.1.5, there is not a damage reduction to Barbed Shot. The change we’re testing is to have Barbed Shot ignore armor. The reduction on the tooltip for the Feeding Frenzy Azerite Trait is intended to keep Feeding Frenzy at the same value as before. https://twitter.com/CybercatArt/status/1095726335748657152
A notable UI change in the update:
The Key Bindings for selecting a specific action bar page (shift+1-6), paging forward (shift+mousewheel up), and paging backward (shift+mousewheel down) have been reset. These can be re-bound in the Action Bar section of the Key Bindings menu.
Yes. With the introduction of stat templates in Legion, xp-off players couldn’t get a significant advantage over xp-on players, so we combined the brackets for low level battlegrounds. Now that we’ve removed stat templates, we've returned xp-off players to their own bracket. https://twitter.com/NeroosED/status/1105652265476653059
