  1. Glacial Tidestorm Bug Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker) We should have received two mounts after today's hotfix, however after we kill Jaina we receive no mount at all. We identified an issue were Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorm mounts on Mythic difficulty. She has been reverted to now drop only 1 mount again while the underlying issue is investigated. Customer Support will not be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted. Rukhmar and Nalak Spawn Change Reddit user Alenajna has pointed out on reddit that Rukhmar and Nalak have received a spawn protection, similar to the one of other world bosses such as Galleon, Sha of Anger and Oondasta. Fan Art - Illidan, Ragnaros and Deathwing in Minecraft Arang Choi has recreated Illidan Stormrage, Ragnaros the Firelord and Deathwing the Destroyer in Minecraft. View the full article
  2. Patch 8.3 Hotfixes - February 14, 2020 Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Dungeons and Raids Battle of Dazar’alor Lady Jaina Proudmoore now drops 2 Glacial Tidestorm mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty. Ny’alotha, the Waking City N’Zoth the Corruptor now drops 2 Ny'alotha Allseer mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty. With these mounts becoming quite rare once Shadowlands comes out, taking 20 weeks or more for a full Mythic raid group to get the mounts felt excessive. Horrific Visions Reduced the health of enemies for groups of 2 or more that include at least 1 healer. Developers’ note: We expected that groups with a healer would gain efficiency by taking more risks, but we've found that this gain is offset by healers shifting focus from damage to healing as group size increases, so we're adjusting creature health accordingly. Stormwind Alleria Windrunner Darkened Sky now drains 40 Sanity (was 60 Sanity). When the Trade District bonus objective is complete, Chains of Servitude is now cast once during the fight (was twice). Items and Rewards Corrupted Items Fixed an issue which prevented items from being forged with the +12 Corruption version of Ineffable Truth (Corruption Effect). Player versus Player The upcoming Teeming Islands Brawl has been replaced with Temple of Hotmogu. Temple of Hotmogu Brawl’s bonus movement speed and haste have been increased to 50%. WoW Classic Fixed an issue that could cause the player to disconnect from the game while waiting in a long queue for a Battleground. View the full article

  4. Arena World Championship & Mythic Dungeon International 2020 Plans Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) 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. The Big Change World of Warcraft Esports is moving to YouTube! This means that all the content for the Mythic Dungeon International and Arena World Championship—our live broadcasts and our VODs—will be hosted on the same great platform to make it easier for esports fans to watch. Tune into our MDI broadcasts starting April 11th here: https://www.youtube.com/warcraft Mythic Dungeon International Arena World Championship Welcome Back the Mythic Dungeon International We are happy to announce the return of the Mythic Dungeon International (MDI), with a new dungeon to challenge competitors and put them through their paces. Things are going to be a little different this year with some exciting changes. Format Changes The Europe and Asia (EU/Asia) division includes players from Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Korea, China, and Taiwan. The Americas (AMER) division includes players from The Americas, Australia, and New Zealand. Teams will participate in the division based on where the majority of their team’s players reside. It wouldn’t be one of the most exciting MDI seasons yet without an in-person LAN. This season’s final will have a massive $300,000 prize pool that our elite teams will compete for. Moving forward, we’re also going to consider all MDI seasons as standalone events with a LAN final to cap each event. This provides us the ability to iterate quickly on changes and upgrades that we think the community will love. Stay tuned to our MDI esports page for more information on the season beginning in April. New Dungeon: Operation: Mechagon We’ve added a new dungeon to the rotation this year with Operation: Mechagon. This dungeon provides 8 challenging bosses split in two separate wings—Junkyard and Workshop. New Affix: Awakened With the Visions of N'Zoth content update comes a new season of competitive play and a new Affix to contend with—Awakened. While the Awakened affix is active, players will discover obelisks throughout the dungeon, which will pull players through the veil to the shadowy world of Ny’alotha. There, players will confront a powerful servant of N’Zoth which they must defeat, or the servant will join forces with the final boss in the instance. Teams will have to push themselves to their limits (and beyond) to prove they’re the fastest team around. Looking Ahead We can’t wait to see how the competition this season unfolds; in the meantime, we’re preparing for future MDI seasons in Shadowlands. We’ll have more news to share as we get closer to the release of the expansion. A new year waits for the Arena World Championship Embarking on the thirteenth year of the Arena World Championship (AWC), we felt it was a good time to shake some things up and will be hosting one final season to close out Battle for Azeroth. There’s even more on the line than ever before. Format Changes Beginning in Spring, registration for the AWC’s online qualification cups will open. All eight online Arena cups will award a $10,000 prize pool and AWC Points. Anyone can sign up and test their mettle for glory and cash prizes. Teams with the most AWC points after all four North American and European cups will be invited to compete in the AWC Battle for Azeroth Finals. There, the eight best teams in the world will compete for a share of the $500,000 prize pool—the largest AWC Prize Pool to date. Looking Ahead Shadows of the imminent future loom. The Arena World Championship will start up once World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has released, and Azeroth’s fiercest gladiator’s will be tested more than ever before. The first AWC Tournament Series in Shadowlands will host two crucial competitive seasons with online cups and two in-person tournaments, including a mid-year LAN and a finals event which would occur in the Summer, similar to the Battle for Azeroth Finals this year. All of these changes to the Mythic Dungeon International and Arena World Championship mean changes to WoW esports events that have typically taken place toward the end of the year, such as BlizzCon 2019. Don’t worry though, we still have plans in the works, and we’ll have more to share later. This year proves to be an exciting one for World of Warcraft esports and we look forward to sharing all of the exciting news and action with you. Be sure to follow and bookmark the Battlefy Page in order to be the first to sign up for the first cup. The upcoming schedule and current point standings can be tracked at the official esports AWC website. Warsong Gulch Exit Portal Removal Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) 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! View the full article

  6. Warcraft Radio Interview with Ion Hazzikostas Warcraft Radio sat down for an exclusive interview with Ion Hazzikostas about the recent Ny'alotha race to world first. Here is a recap of the interview. Be sure to watch the full video for all of the context and additional information! Race to World First It was really exciting to see a North American guild come out on top for the first time in awhile.The team monitored the race in real time and fixed issues as fast as possible.The Ra-den pre-immunity issue was hotfixed immediately so that immunity class stacking wasn't encouraged on the fight to bypass mechanics. The difference between this and the respawn issue was that Limit hadn't killed Ra-den yet.The mythic race has shed light on bugs in mythic raids a lot faster than in the past.There is a bit of a trade off in that the team wants to keep final boss mythic encounters somewhat exciting and secret which results in them not being tested by a large variety of guilds or situations.Most mythic encounter strategies end up a little different than the team intended.The issue that caused the team to despawn N'Zoth wasn't necessarily a bug, but a workaround that needed tuning so that the damage wasn't healable, forcing players into the portal.The team wants to avoid excessive randomness in encounters that continually cause wipes.The intended mechanic for 25% was a safety mechanism to spawn the gateway at 25% if phase 2 was initially skipped by dpsing the boss down to 25% without going in the portal for phase 2 yet, but the bug was that it was doing it EVEN IF phase 2 was completed.Carapace was a little easier than intended, and in retrospect the damage requirements of phase 1 was too low.In the past, these bugs only affected a small group of people, but now that they are public the team is learning how to improve communication and fix issues.There are no plans to have mythic raids open simultaneously between NA and EU. They don't want the raid opening at bad times or having to delay opening, and most of the race comes down to learning and conquering the fight first.Corruption System Overall the team is happy with how corruption turned out, but there are still tuning issues. They like the choices and trade-offs that it brings to fights.There are multiple tiers of each corruption so that you can wear more pieces of gear with good corruption without having excessive corruption negatives attached.Corruption is an 8.3 system and is NOT the future of WoW.Ny'alotha Encounters The ball mechanic in the Xanesh encounter is the team trying to develop new ideas in raids that haven't been seen before.Ion likes the Wrathion encounter, especially as a first fight, because it creates spectacle while also having some interesting mechanics.Ion also likes the Carapace fight, particularly because he likes the idea of fighting your way into N'Zoth.Sometimes datamined abilities in the encounter don't make the final cut but remain in the files as they iterate on fights even prior to PTR testing.Queen Azshara originally had an extra phase with unique adds that didn't make the final cut.Ion believes N'Zoth lives up to the standards of previous final boss encounters.Future Mythic Encounters The team is working on making sure bugs are solved before the race starts while also improving communication so that they fix these bugs faster when they pop up.Final bosses of raids will likely still not be tested on the PTR for mythic to keep the surprise.The team is happy with the 6 months between raid tiers as it's a good balance to allow people to make it to the end of the raid that have slower progression.Battle for Azeroth Ending There are definitely already hints building up to the future of the story.Ion talks about the disappointment some felt for N'Zoth's end, but at the end of the day we are the heroes of the story and we will always defeat villains and make way for new villains to enter.The team wanted the final cinematic of the expansion to focus on you as the hero and your efforts to build up your Heart of Azeroth being important to victory.Shadowlands There is a lot more to talk about with Shadowlands in the NEAR FUTURE.View the full article

Missions Fixed a bug that prevented the new Visions of N’Zoth troops from counting towards Champion abilities. Quests "Aqir Instincts" and "Honing Instincts" no longer have their progress blocked by being in a raid group or when summoning or dismissing the Shadowbarb Hatchling. Kills made while in a raid group will still fail to grant experience to grow your Shadowbarb Hatchling. WoW Classic Battleground scoreboards no longer list the enemy team until your entire team has clicked Enter Battleground. The scoreboard remains visible for everyone once the battleground has started. Exploring Azeroth: The Eastern Kingdoms Book Another World of Warcraft themed book has been announced recently, this one releasing on October 20th, 2020 and featuring Matthias Shaw and Flynn Fairwind and art displaying the Eastern Kingdom locales. You can preorder it on Amazon by clicking here!

Grasping Tendrils is no longer dispellable by Magic dispels and will no longer appear on players’ raid frame UI; it can still be removed by abilities that remove snares. Developer's Note: We originally made this effect’s snare dispellable so that players could save each other if they were afflicted with it in unfortunate Void Zone-like circumstances. However, we've received feedback that in large-group environments, Grasping Tendrils’ appearance on raid frames could sometimes cause players to overlook more critical debuffs to dispel. We're making this change so players can better see Magic effects in their raid frames as significant debuffs that should be paid attention to and react accordingly. UI Fixed an issue that caused the Onyx War Hyena to appear in the Mounts tab of the Collection journal.

Developer's Note: We originally made this effect’s snare dispellable so that players could save each other if they were afflicted with it in unfortunate Void Zone-like circumstances. However, we've received feedback that in large-group environments, Grasping Tendrils’ appearance on raid frames could sometimes cause players to overlook more critical debuffs to dispel. We're making this change so players can better see Magic effects in their raid frames as significant debuffs that should be paid attention to and react accordingly. UI Fixed an issue that caused the Onyx War Hyena to appear in the Mounts tab of the Collection journal. View the full article

  11. Love is in the Air 2020 Love is in the Air returns from February 8th to the 21st. World of Warcraft Shadows Rising - Shadowlands Prequel Novel An all-new official prequel novel to Shadowlands will release on July 14th, 2020! Below is the official book description. To read an excerpt from the novel, visit Blizzard Watch's official preview page! You can preorder the book on Amazon by clicking the banner below! Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment “The Horde is nothing!” With those infamous words, Sylvanas Windrunner betrayed and abandoned the Horde she vowed to serve. The Dark Lady and her forces now work in the shadows as both the Horde and Alliance, including her own sister, Alleria, race to uncover her next move. Struggling to shoulder the crushing weight of leadership, King Anduin entrusts the void elf and High Exarch Turalyon to uncover Sylvanas’s whereabouts. The Horde now stands at a crossroads. The various factions form a council, leaving the mantle of warchief to rest. Thrall, Lor’themar Theron, Baine Bloodhoof, First Arcanist Thalyssra, and many other familiar faces rise to this new challenge. But the threats are numerous, and the distrust runs too deep. When the council is derailed by a failed assassination attempt on Talanji—the Zandalari queen and a key ally—Thrall and the rest of the Horde leaders are forced into action. They empower the young troll shaman Zekhan, still grieving the loss of Varok Saurfang, with a critical mission to aid Talanji and help uncover the rising threat against her. Meanwhile, Nathanos Blightcaller and Sira Moonwarden have been tasked by the Dark Lady with a terrifying gambit: to kill the troll loa of death himself, Bwonsamdi. As Zekhan and Talanji work to save Bwonsamdi, their journey will be a key turning point in bolstering the Horde against the coming darkness and finding themselves along the way. Failure to save their allies and the trickster god will surely doom them—but through success, they may rediscover what makes the Horde strong." View the full article

  13. Ivory Cloud Serpent Mount Guide Patch 8.3 added a few new mounts to collect, but the Ivory Cloud Serpent is one of the more involved ones to find. For those who have yet to get the mount, the mogu assault will return tonight (or tomorrow in the EU) in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. Here is what you need to know to prepare if you want to get the mount! First you must loot a Zan-Tien Lasso from any Zan-Tien mogu in the vale. This can be done at any time, even when the mogu assault is not happening. It is a rare drop so expect to kill quite a few mobs.Wait for the mogu assault to spawn in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. This is the only time that the Ivory Cloud Serpent NPC spawns in the Vale.The Ivory Cloud Serpent spawns at roughly the location on the map below, at 27,55. It actually spawns quite high in the sky so it is advised to camp just below the Great Worms from Beyond, a little under the highest point of the Shadow-Pan wall viewable to the west. It is also advised that you check the custom tab of the group finder to look for camping raids.The goal here is to use your Zan-Tien Lasso on the npc. This item is castable while mounted, but has a two second cast time that is interrupted by moving.Multiple people can lasso the npc, but it despawns seconds after the first person successfully lassos it so you need to be quick.You will likely have stacks of the Great Worm flight speed debuff, but if you are positioned correctly you shouldn't have to chase it.It is advised to sit in the location and spam the following macro: #showtooltip item:174927 /stopmacro [channeling:Catching] /cleartarget /tar Ivory Cloud Serpent /use Zan-Tien LassoThe NPC is super fast, and does a full loop around the Vale before despawning. If by chance you don't get it as it spawns, you could catch up to it by the Shadow-Pan wall to the west and lasso it as it flies over the wall.The npc seems to have a varied spawn timer, but most have noticed it being between 2-3 hours. Warcraft III: Reforged Patch Notes - February 6th, 2020 Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker) Campaign Players should no longer be met with a “defeat” screen after loading into a mission.Audio levels for some dialogue have been adjusted.The animations, triggers, and cameras for some cutscenes have been tweaked.Disconnecting or logging out will no longer change the save file folder.Fixed a number of issues that would block progression or not give credit for completing missions. Developer’s note: Updating a map for these types of fixes invalidates prior saves. This is similar to how replays from prior game client versions no longer work. Campaign progress will not be lost. Custom Games Multiboards should no longer crash custom games.Joining lobbies for the same map no longer creates duplicate versions of the map. Developer’s note: This also resolves disconnects from improper map names. Gameplay The rendering of Classic mode has been updated.Resolved an issue with hitching when constructing buildings or training units for the first time.Fixed Ziggurat upgrade animation in Reforged mode.Adjusted animations and portraits for multiple units and buildings.Units completing training while off-screen again have voices.Starting locations are again obscured by the fog of war. Interface Whispers now include the name of the sender.Locale settings for audio and subtitles can now be adjusted independently in Battle .net prior to launching the game.Non-Latin glyphs no longer overlap.A tooltip now displays when hovering over truncated text.Chat keeps up with the latest messages.Heroes on the match results screen are now contained by boundaries.All menus are now distinct between Classic and Reforged graphic settings. Developer’s note: We’ve implemented a temporary solution to better inform whether you are playing in Reforged or Classic mode, by applying a sepia tone to the background images for Classic.
