  1. Queen Azshara Hotfixes this Week Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) We’re working on the following hotfixes today. We intend to apply to these changes to the Queen Azshara encounter with weekly maintenance in each region: When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff.Azshara’s Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty.Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty.Ancient Wards now energize slightly slower for smaller raid sizes on Normal and Heroic difficulties.Fixed an issue that allowed Arcane Vulnerability to apply when the victim wasn’t in line of sight of Queen Azshara. We’ll update this post if there are any further changes, and when the hotfixes go live. Season 3 Artifact Knowledge Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Is this being cut off soon?Or are you leaving it on indefinitely? No to both questions. As things currently stand, Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1. View the full article
  2. New Realm Coming for WoW Classic - EU Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) The existing PvP realms all now have either a Full or High population tag. With the potential for extended queues on the Full realms, and 10,000+ queues on Shazzrah, we are opening another English PvP realm on Tuesday, August 20 at 8:00 p.m. CEST: Firemaw – PvP – English We urge players on PvP realms to consider moving to this realm. Doing so will help spread the player population as evenly as possible before launch and provide the best play experience for everyone. New Realms Coming for WoW Classic - US Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) The existing PvP realms all now have either a Full or High population tag.

Worgen and Goblin Heritage Armor Update Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Worgen & Goblin Heritage Armor? I certainly hope we’re getting Worgen and Goblin Heritage sets in a future patch We are getting Worgen and Goblin Heritage armor questlines in a future content update. We think it’s really cool to have these memorable questing experiences that go along with and encapsulate the moment when you inherit your Heritage armor. We’re working on bringing them to the game as soon as we can. Dark Legacy Comics #691 DLC #691 has been released! View the full article
  3. Overcrowded Realm Update Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker) Based on name reservations so far, the Shazzrah realm is looking to be massively overpopulated. If all existing players on this server remain there, login queues in excess of 10,000 players are a certainty, and possibly much higher than that. We recently opened up the Gehennas realm, and we urge players on Shazzrah to consider moving there. There are a lot of players currently on Shazzrah and we want Gehennas to fill up before we open any new PvP realms. This is so that player population is spread as evenly as possible before launch, in order to provide the best play experience. While we are able to fit several times more players on a single realm in 2019 than was the case in 2006, we are not going to raise that cap any further, even though we have the technical capacity to do so. Raising realm caps would simply forestall the problem, letting more players in at launch but creating an unsustainable situation down the line, with severe queues when we turn off layering permanently before Phase 2 of our content unlock plan. Please also note that our realm population estimates of Low, Medium, High, and Full are based on this increased capacity – a Medium realm today already has more characters on it than even the most crowded realms did back in 2006. Our top priority in planning for WoW Classic’s launch has been ensuring that we are laying the groundwork for strong realm communities that will endure over the months and years to follow, which is why we’re cautiously opening new servers to meet demand.

  8. New WoW Classic Realm Opening Today Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Due to very high demand, we will open a new WoW Classic realm for name reservations at 5:00 p.m PDT (8:00 p.m. EDT) today, Wednesday, August 14: Stalagg – PvP – Eastern Time We suggest that players, especially those on the Herod realm, consider creating characters on Stalagg. We expect that other PvP realms in this region will otherwise experience significant login queues when Classic launches. Thank you! Extended Queues Expected on Select Realms Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) As of now, a large number of WoW Classic characters have been created on the following realms. Players with characters on this realm are likely to experience severe queues at release. Herod - PvPWhitemane - PvP We have updated the algorithm for the realm population tags so they more accurately reflect the expected population for that realm. The realms that are listed as “Full” are where we expect to see extended queues. If you’re concerned about long queue times affecting your play experience, you may want to consider creating characters on a lower population realm before the game releases on August 26 at 3:00 p.m. PDT.

  9. Patch 8.2 Hotfixes - August 13th, 2019 Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Classes Death Knight (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator) Frost Damage of all abilities increased by 5%. Unholy Damage of all abilities increased by 5%. Warlock (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator) Destruction Damage of all abilities increased by 5%. Warrior (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator) Arms Damage of all abilities increased by 5%. Developers’ notes: Arms Warrior, Destruction Warlock, Frost Death Knight, and Unholy Death Knight are generally underperforming and could use a damage increase. Rogue (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator) Outlaw Blade Flurry now strikes nearby enemies for 30% of normal damage (was 45%). Keep Your Wits About You (Azerite Trait) now increases the chance for Sinister Strike to strike again by 3% (was 5%) and the maximum number of stacks has been increased to 33. Developers’ notes: While multi-target cleave is an iconic strength for Outlaw Rogue, we feel that Blade Flurry is currently too strong, particularly in Mythic Keystone dungeons. Likewise, the Azerite Trait Keep Your Wits About You provides too much added value to their area-of-effect rotation at only a single instance of the trait. These changes should keep Outlaw Rogues very strong at multi-target cleave, but no longer significantly ahead of other specs. Shaman (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator) Restoration Healing Surge healing increased by 10%, and mana cost reduced by 5%. Healing Wave healing increased by 10%. Healing Rain has had its healing increased by 20%. Riptide heal-over-time increased by 15%. Wellspring healing increased by 15%. Developers’ notes: In general, Restoration Shamans are struggling with single target healing environments like Mythic Keystone Dungeons and Arenas, so we’re buffing some spells from their single target kit. At the same time, we also feel like they aren’t doing as well in a particular area where they should excel: healing a large number of targets in a small area, so we’re increasing the strength of Healing Rain. Finally, Wellspring is an underperforming talent we feel could benefit from an increase to be competitive. NPCs Added additional visual clarity to Ulmath's Void Dance. Player versus Player Items Notorious Gladiator’s Safeguard’s cooldown increased to 3 minutes (was 2 minutes). Heart of Azeroth All Tier 3 Azerite Traits (such as Resounding Protection and Impassive Visage) are now reduced to 20% effectiveness in PvP (was 50%). Developers’ notes: We’d like to see sustained damage become a greater source of pressure in Arena and Battlegrounds, but the passive healing providing by these Azerite Traits offsets much of that damage. We think that by decreasing their impact, we’ll see greater pressure on health and mana pools going forward. Death Knight (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator) Necrotic Strike’s Necrotic Wound now absorbs 5% of the target’s maximum health in healing received (was 7%). The melee attack damage and attack speed of the Raise Abomination guardian has been decreased by 30%. Developers’ notes: While Death Knight damage is underperforming in raid environments, they are very strong in PvP. To offset the increases to their base damage, we’re reducing the effectiveness of two very strong Honor Talents. Mage (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator) Temporal Shield now has a 4 second duration (was 6 seconds). Developers’ notes: While we like the predictive gameplay of Temporal Shield in response to offensive pressure, we think the duration provides too much protection for a class that should be focused on control and mobility for defense.

  10. WoW Classic Closed Beta Has Returned Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Thanks to your help testing WoW Classic, we’ve fixed many additional reported bugs since the Beta ended last month. To really ensure that these fixes are all functioning as expected and prepare the smoothest possible launch in two weeks, we’ve just re-opened our closed beta realms for additional testing of WoW Classic. All testers who previously had access to the closed beta are now able to log into those realms. Characters that were previously created on the beta test realms were removed, and level 40-character templates are now available. The level cap has been increased to 45. Characters in this range will find level-appropriate quests to explore in zones such as Stranglethorn Vale, Swamp of Sorrows, Dustwallow Marsh, and Desolace. As before, please use the in-game Bug Report button to submit issues encountered while testing. If you need more text space to explain an issue you encountered, please take it to our WoW Classic Support and Bug Report forum, which is now open for new threads. This final closed beta test will end on Friday, 16 August. Thanks in advance to everyone who jumps in to test WoW Classic and help us prepare for its worldwide release on 27 August at 12:01 a.m. CEST! View the full article

  12. WoW Classic Name Reservations Open Today! Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) WoW Classic name reservations open today! Players with an active subscription or game time on their World of Warcraft account can create up to three characters per WoW account before WoW Classic releases worldwide on Monday, August 26 at 3:00 p.m. PDT. When you reserve a name, you’ll also choose the realm you will play that character on. There are a few additional things to keep in mind as you make your choice: Players who choose to play on a PvP realm will only be able to create characters within the same faction. This means that if you create an Alliance character, all further characters on that realm must also be Alliance characters. After WoW Classic is live, you’ll be able to create up to 10 characters on any given realm and can create a maximum of 50 characters across all WoW Classic realms. This character count does not impact the number of characters you can create on the current World of Warcraft realms. Characters that were created for the WoW Classic beta or stress tests will not be available to use in WoW Classic. To create a character and play WoW Classic, you will need to download and install the client first. Open the Battle.net desktop app and select World of Warcraft in the game selection menu. Under the Version menu, select World of Warcraft Classic. If you have more than one World of Warcraft account, you’ll see a second dropdown for Account. In that column, select the active account you want to play on. Click the Install button. You’ll see an installation progress bar that will show you when the installation is available to play. Once the installation is complete, click the Play button. You’ll need to select the realm you want to play on then select Create New Character. You’ll be able to choose your faction, class, and race, as well as fully customize your new character and name them. If you change your mind about a character and have already created your three, you will need to choose a character to delete. Please note, the name associated with the character deleted will be immediately available again to be claimed. Before you put your plans too firmly in place, we encourage you to gather your allies together to select your new home realm. If you’re looking to reconnect with your old friends and guildmates, be sure to check out our Classic Connections forum. Available Realms for North America Available Realms for Oceania Available Realms for Europe Once you’ve created your new character, all that will be left is to synchronize your chronometer with your friends and allies and prepare for your world (of Warcraft) domination! We’ll see you in Azeroth at 3:00 p.m. PDT on August 26! Patch 8.2.5 PTR - Updated Worgen Animations Today we are taking a look at some of the new and improved animations for Worgens coming with their model update in Patch 8.2.5.

Za’qul, Harbinger of Ny’alotha Reverted a change that caused Mind Tether to deal excessive damage to the linked target. Corrected an issue where Mind Tether would not attach two targets that were in separate phases. Operation: Mechagon Fixed an issue that could cause players to become locked to the normal encounter if they killed King Mechagon on hard mode and died at the same time. Island Expeditions The bonus amount of Azerite granted to players with the Azerite Residue buff has been increased based on Island Expedition difficulty. Heroic Island Expeditions 2 Azerite per stack of Azerite Residue, 500 Azerite total per player at full stack. Mythic Island Expeditions 3 Azerite per stack of Azerite Residue, 750 Azerite total per player at full stack. PvP Island Expeditions 4 Azerite per stack of Azerite Residue, 900 Azerite total per player at full stack. Azerite Residue increases in potency more quickly based on Island Expeditions difficulty. Heroic Island Expeditions Azerite Residue now increments every 1.5 seconds (6 minutes 15 seconds to reach full). Mythic Island Expeditions Azerite Residue now increments every 1.25 seconds (5 minutes 12 seconds to reach full). PvP Island Expeditions Azerite Residue now increments every 1 second (3 minutes 45 seconds to reach full). Developers’ note: As higher Island Expedition difficulties award larger total amounts of Azerite, we want to ensure that the reward for engaging and defeating the enemy team remains relevant, especially in PvP Islands. Items Fixed an issue that allowed certain abilities to remove the "Recharging" debuff from Logic Loops. Quests “Taking the Air Out” is now offered more often in Mechagon. Activision Blizzard Second Quarter Earnings Call Results Activision Blizzard recently had their quarter 2 earnings call and here were some of the key takeaways on the Blizzard side: World of Warcraft subscribers increased since mid-May, following the release date announcement and beta for World of Warcraft Classic and the Rise of Azshara update.Across Call of Duty, Candy Crush, Warcraft, Hearthstone, Overwatch, and Diablo, they are expanding their development teams and resources so that they can accelerate the delivery of content in the pipeline, pursue new business models, broaden communities, and delight players.Blizzard had 32 million MAUs (monthly active users).Hearthstone MAUs increased quarter to quarter following the release of the Rise of Shadows expansion and deeper, more engaging new single-player content in the quarter.Overwatch MAUs were relatively stable quarter to quarter, with engagement increasing following the release of the WorkshopAt Blizzard, daily time spent per player increased year over year.Overwatch League hours viewed continued to grow year over year in the two stages held during Q2 Season to date, viewership and average minute audience have grown double digits year over year.Blizzard's Q2 net revenue was $384 million.
