Latest 5.4.8 Hotfixes - May 27


Blizzard has posted their latest batch of live server hotfixes, including a fix to the issue with the inv_misc_bag_16.jpgGoing To Need A Bigger Bag, along with a few nerfs to mana drain effects of a few pre-90 items. Nothing too remarkable being changed, but as they are hotfixes I suppose that's technically a good thing!

Blizzard's Garrison Preview Part 1


Blizzard has posted a phenominal first entry in a four part series spotlighting Warlords of Draenor's upcoming Garrisons feature! This article details the process of starting to develop your garrison during the leveling process to 100. Questing in Warlords will be the primary means to strengthen and further develop your garrison, and blueprints for new buildings can be earned in a variety of different ways. You'll meet and recruit followers in your travels and establish outposts in multiple different zones as extensions of your primary garrison in either Shadowmoon Valley (Alliance) or Frostfire Ridge (Horde). Find out more details in the full post on the World of Warcraft blog!

Heart of the Valorous Buff - +100% Bonus Valor


Perhaps taking idea from the success of Diablo III's recent double-legendary buff, which became a permanent feature of the game, Blizzard has introduced a limited-time buff on Valor gains across all characters. This buff will be in effect from Friday, May 30 at 9:00 AM PDT, through Tuesday, June 10 at 9:00 AM PDT and all characters will earn 100% more Valor Points. Of course, the Valor cap hasn't been raised, so essentially players will just cap their Valor quicker and have even less to do. This buff comes not too long after patch 5.4.8's addition of the pvecurrency-valor.jpgDeeds of Valor tokens, which can be purchased with Timeless Coins on the Timeless Isle. Reaching the Valor cap shouldn't be very difficult at all!

      Trial of Valor Odyn fix, Guarm Mythic tuning and Helya nerfs and fixes are the headlines for this batch of hotfixes, along with the usual class and quest fixes.
      December 6
      Class
      Demon Hunter
      Fixed a bug that sometimes allowed the leech from Soul Rending to persist after Metamorphosis ended. Hunter
      Freezing Trap will no longer cause the target's next cast to fail in certain cases. Mage
      Ice Block's cooldown will correctly reset at the end of an encounter. Priest
      You can now activate and deactivate Shadowform while mounted.  
      Class Halls
      Players who were unable to submit Artifact Knowledge Work Orders should now be able to again.  
      Dungeons and Raids
      Players in a dungeon during a server shutdown should no longer receive the Deserter debuff. Throne of Tides
      Fixed a bug that was causing Mindbender Ghur’sha to be non-interactable. Trial of Valor
      The Patient Zero achievement should now be obtainable, as intended. Guarm
      Increased the radius of Guarm's Multi-Headed from 8 yards to 30 yards on Mythic difficulty. Decreased Guarm's health by 5% on Mythic difficulty. Developers’ Notes: The Mythic difficulty change to the Multi-Headed mechanic is intended to require the use of 2 tanks on the encounter. We also slightly reduced Guarm’s health alongside this change in order to minimize the effect on groups that were accustomed to only using 1 tank. This is already active in the NA/ANZ region, and will take effect in other regions with their weekly restarts.
      Helya
      The magnitude of Corrupted Axion's healing absorb now properly scales down as the size of a raid decreases from 30 players to 10 players. Resolved an issue that would cause Fetid Rot from targeting more players than intended on non-Mythic difficulties. Reduced the health of several enemies in the Helya encounter on Normal and Heroic difficulties. On non-Mythic difficulties, Adjusted Orb of Corrosion no longer targets Helya's tank targets, similar to its behavior in Mythic difficulty. Odyn
      Fixed an issue that could cause Odyn to sometimes cast a lethal Unerring Blast during the final phase of the encounter.  
      Items
      Many trinkets available from Timewalking holiday dungeons and vendors have had their effects adjusted to more closely match the power level of Legion trinkets.  
      Player versus Player
      Mass Invisibility can no longer be cast on allies holding battleground flags and orbs.  
      Quests
      Havi's message when a player completes "Now That's Just Clawful" will no longer be displayed to all players in the area. World Quest map markers for Kirin Tor World Quests should now function correctly. During “Barrels o’ Fun”, a swirling holy light now radiates from the barrel that needs to be tracked. Players no longer get roadblocked if they teleport out of Well of the Forgotten after interacting with the Bone Pile for the quest "The Rite of the Executioner". Previous Hotfixes.

      Hello,
      Im long time lurker on class guides, and Id like to suggest and ask if you could add numerical stat weights in class spec guides. Pawn addon config string would be perfect but just numerical values would be also great. What do you think about it?
      Thank you in advance

      18 micro-holidays tested over the next 3 weeks, you're sure to find a few that you'll love!
       
      The micro-holidays that are being introduced in 7.1.5 are going to be tested in the next 3 weeks and, as a lot of them won't be seen on live for months and months after the patch launches, jumping on the PTR and taking a look now is a great way to see which you should look forward to or care about! With 18 holidays available you're sure to find a few that are just right for you - personally I'm betting on Call of the Scarab for those sweet "world server down" memories of opening the AQ gates.
      Lore (source)
      Beginning tomorrow, December 6, we plan to begin testing of the new Micro-Holiday events being added in Patch 7.1.5. One event will be tested each day for the next few weeks, and we’d love to hear your feedback on them.

      Tuesday, December 06: Call of the Scarab
      Wednesday, December 07: Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl

      Friday, December 09: Hatching of the Hippogryphs
      Saturday, December 10: March of the Tadpoles
      Sunday, December 11: Volunteer Guard Day
      Monday, December 12: Spring Balloon Festival
      Tuesday, December 13: Glowcap Festival
      Wednesday, December 14: Un'goro Madness
      Thursday, December 15: Call of the Scarab
      Friday, December 16: Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl
      Saturday, December 17: Love is in the Air
