Eternal Palace Day 8: Limit Push to New Phase on Azshara, 8 Guilds on 7/8 US/OC reset day saw a couple more Za'qul kills and Limit re-clearing back to Azshara, and almost immediately getting one of their lower % tries so far, followed by the best try overall. JTH pushed really hard and managed to overtake Method in raw %, as three new guilds started their own journey on the final boss. World of Warcraft WoW Today at 05:38
Patch 8.2 Hotfixes: July 23rd The first hotfixes of the reset are here and we have nerfs for the final two bosses of the Eternal Palace, Za'qul and Azshara, as well as some Operation: Mechagon tuning, in addition to several item and quest fixes! World of Warcraft WoW Today at 00:51 1 comment

Tank Threat Increased in Upcoming Hotfix Tanks are getting a threat boost in an upcoming hotfix (presumably today), through the Essence system. As the DPS specs gain quite a bit of damage with their essences, this caused tank threat to sometimes come out lacking, and so each essence slot unlock will now also increase threat generation for tank specs!

Eternal Palace Day 7: JTH World 3rd, Limit Hiding VoDs, 5 Guilds on Azshara The last day of the US/OC reset was pretty uneventful for the top 2, but we did get a third contender for the title, and a very exciting one, as Asian guild Ji Tian Hong downed Za'qul World 3rd and joined Limit and Method on Queen Azshara! We now have all three regions represented in the top 3, which is just amazing, especially when you consider the 2 day disadvantage JTH had over the US and 1 day over EU.

New Hero Announced: Sigma It's time for another Hero to join the roster! Sigma seems to have gone a little overboard with his experiments and ended up in a sticky situation, as we find out in his origin story. The video is pretty weird and a little creepy, but effective, and he's apparently also joined the Talon guys and gals. Also, apparently, he's harnessed the harness, so there's that.

Eternal Palace Race Day 6: Method Catches Up, Azshara on 52%, Za'qul Comps While day 5 was a bit of a non-event, with Limit progressing on Queen Azshara and Method doing Heroic splits the entire day, 6 was significantly more exciting. We had Method catch up to the top late in the day, a whole bunch of guilds down the Queen's Council, as well as Limit push the final boss down 52%.
