True World First Classic Sulfuras, from China True World First Classic Sulfuras, from China It seems we spoke too soon when we announced the first Sulfuras today, as a Chinese player actually completed it 4 days ago! With Classic it's a little harder to track exactly who got a WF, and in our previous post the comment linking the earlier completion wasn't in yet at the time of posting. As we weren't getting a lot of information out of the Asian Classic scene during the leveling stage we consequently missed this one as well. Apologies to LongDD who got the legendary mace first, on September 17th to be exact, and here's the video to commemorate the crafting: WoW Classic WoW Classic Sep 21, 2019 at 17:15 by Starym 5 comments
West First Classic Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros Crafted West First Classic Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros Crafted Update: apologies for the headline, it should have read WEST first - with the leveling and raid race for Classic we used West as we didn't have info from Asia servers so I made the mistake of lumping it in as a "World First". Apologies!
Here's the article about the real World First, Chinese player LongDD.

Original article:
We already reported on the World First Eye of Sulfuras drop some 2 weeks ago, but actually crafting the thing takes a whole lot of time and resources, so it's only now that the actual weapon has popped up in the game! The original first drop came for the guild Venture from Flamelash EU, but it seems Senseless from Firemaw EU focused more on acquiring all the mats and most of all transmutes needed to get the thing assembled! Big congratulations to the guild and Kembria in particular!

WoW Classic City Tour: Orgrimmar (Official) WoW Classic City Tour: Orgrimmar (Official) We have another official tour of a capital city, and this time it's the Horde that's getting a look around their home. With a whole lot of class and profession trainers and vendors marked, and each part of the city mapped, the only other thing you really need to know is how long to spend running around the bank roof. The correct answer is: forever.

You can also check out the Stormwind tour and the various ways you can get around Azeroth.

First Free Bloody Harvest DLC Detailed First Free "Bloody Harvest" DLC Detailed The Borderlands show's first episode premiered today and had creative director Paul Sage join Greg Miller and Fran Mirabella from Kinda Funny and talk a whole lot about BL3. One of the more interesting topics they covered was the upcoming free Halloween themed DLC, Bloody Harvest. We've already seen something similar in Borderlands 2 and we found out that in 3 the event will last around a month, start in late October and feature new weapons, a new map, enemies, cosmetics and a new/redone boss in Captain Haunt (a modified version of Maliwan's Captain Traunt from Athenas).

You can check out more details on the event below, and it entails a cool way of unlocking it, as special mobs will be spawning throughout the galaxy that you'll have to find in order to get to the new map and boss.

The Borderlands show also covered launch issues and bugs, as well as touched on the upcoming Maliwan Takedown event, in that it will be raid content.

The Specifics of the Loot Nerf - Not That Big a Drop The Specifics of the Loot Nerf - Not That Big a Drop Yesterday's hotfix that nerfed both loot drops in general and a particular spot people would abuse to get insane amount of gear proved somewhat controversial, as it seems you can't ever touch players' "right" to rewards, no matter how ridiculous they may have been. After the nerf a few things have become clear, mostly the fact that it wasn't as big of a change as people were making it out to be (especially people that either hadn't played the game at all or hadn't played on Mayhem).

The History and Future of Method - A Video Series The History and Future of Method - A Video Series Method and their partners in the recent Classic event have created a series of three "Replay" videos going into the origins behind the guild, organization and its founder Sco. Starting with a very Gladiator inspired intro, the first video covers Sco's start in gaming and the big risk he took moving out of the financial industry where he had a good and safe job, to focus entirely on his gaming, streaming and Method.

Feign Death Bug and Upcoming Hotfix Feign Death Bug and Upcoming Hotfix Here come some more Classic hotfixes, as Blizzard have found at least part of the issue that was causing problems with hunters' Feign Death. It seems the spell cancelling for turning is more sensitive in Classic than it was in 1.12, so it's much easier for the Feign to cancel out. The hotfix will address this issue, but excessive turning both during and after the cast will still cause it to fail, but it will be less likely after the hotfix.

Hotfixes: September 19th - Major Loot Nerfs Hotfixes: September 19th - Major Loot Nerfs The season of hotfixes has begun in Borderlands 3, as Gearbox are hard at work addressing some pretty major concerns the playerbase has. The biggest news from today's changes would be the dialing down of loot in Mayhem modes, which was a major problem for many, as it was simply far too easy to obtain legendaries (from boss farming in particular) in the endgame - or well, the post-main story game. You could get upwards of 3 for almost each boss kill, and since the respawn stations are very close to the bosses this time around, a simple save and quit at the right time would immediately respawn them, which would lead to a massive amount of legendaries and the trivialization of the loot chase in general.

Buff Slot Clarifications and Upcoming Hotfixes Buff Slot Clarifications and Upcoming Hotfixes There's been a lot of discussion in the Classic community recently about the 32 beneficial buff slots and specifically the fact that item enchantments were actually taking slots. Things like Crusader were obvious as they showed up on the buff tracker, but even something like a Greater Stats enchant was taking up a slot, without ever letting the player know, and knocking off some more powerful ones like world buffs or even a Power Word: Fortitude.
