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.

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.

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:

Guild Realm Region Timestamp
CN United Huhuran China 23:06 UTC
Praxis Zandalar Tribe Europe 23:07 UTC
For teh Horde Heartstriker Europe 23:07 UTC

Just to confirm, the Healing Enchant to Bracers formula, Corehound Belt, and Nightfall are all also going live with Blackwing Lair. Don Rodrigo’s ring is later.

I’m juggling a few things as we get closer to the release time, but I’ll see if I can get a confirmation on those.

Thank you all. I’d rather get it corrected quickly before we’re live than find out I had wrong information.

I’ve removed them from the listing and the listings have been updated again. Apologies for the confusion. They will be coming… just not yet. :broken_heart:

It was also really cool getting re-acquainted with some of the Warcraft Radio team.

Fun fact: the last time Athalus visited Blizzard as a Warcraft Radio host was 14 years ago.

Delve into the dark recesses of Blackrock Mountain to uncover the dark secrets waiting in this 40-player raid dungeon—for fame and glory!

Learn more in our article.

In the dark recesses of Blackrock Mountain’s peak, Nefarian, the eldest son of Deathwing, conducts some of his most awful experimentation, controlling mighty beings like puppets and combining the eggs of different dragonflights with horrific results. Should he prove successful, even darker pursuits rest on the horizon.

The ominous depths of Blackwing Lair are waiting for those brave enough to face its dangers. Gather your staunchest allies and prepare to undertake a treacherous journey into the heart of the mountain to reap the treasures within.

Raid Bosses: 8
Level: 60
Location: Burning Steppes


How to Get There

Blackwing Lair is located at the very height of Blackrock Spire. You can enter the mountain from either the Burning Steppes or through Searing Gorge.
