4 posts in this topic


A news round-up featuring the Hell Billie mount, Connectivity Issues in Europe, Weekly Sale Items, Tweets and latest videos!

Introducing Hell Billie!

A new mount is joining the menagerie!

Beginning June 2, you will be rewarded the Hell Billie mount for any real-money purchase in the in-game shop. Hell Billie's arrival also marks the well-desired retirement of Billie the Kid (as seen in the picture above on the left). The mount was previously rewarded to every player that made a real-money purchase in the shop. Here's how Hell Billie looks like:


Fear not if you don't yet own Billie the Kid, the mount will be given away in addition to Hell Billie from Thursday, June 2, through Tuesday, June 14, 2016. After that, Hell Billie will be the only reward for making a real-money purchase.

Connectivity Issues Fixed

Users have been reporting high latency in the European region on reddit lately. The issue seems to have been fixed according to this thread.  Araxom has made several responses related to the lags.

Dustin Browder Tweets

Dustin was asked a question if there were any plans to make the role of support as healer bots any different, following player complaints.

Talking about unfinished features that are in the works are a nightmare of every game developer. Even Dustin admitted that he was talking about Arena.

And of course, Arena is far from complete yet, we still got no ETA.

^ Haha yeah same. Just to clarify, if you spend money from Thursday, June 2, through Tuesday, June 14, 2016, you get both Billie the Kid and Hell Billie mounts right? (If you don't already have Billie the Kid.)

Indeed, you will get both :), if you already own him, you will only get Hell Billie. After June 14, you will just get Hell Billie regardless of whether you own Billie the Kid or not. Hope this clears it up.

      Are you ready to answer the call of the True Horde? Garrosh will be debuting on July 27 at ChinaJoy!
      In addition to his debut, he will be hitting PTR (Public Test Realms) on July 31 and go live a week later as with every Hero. We're still waiting for an in-development video! Credits go to MVP Proenix00 for the tweet and redditor traxium11 for providing a translation! In the meantime, you can check out the following Garrosh Hellscream tribute!

      Blizzard brought up an upcoming change to Chen's trait. Fortifying Brew will grant 25 Brew immediately when Chen starts casting it and 30 Brew per second after that.
      The time to reach max Brew is still 2.5 seconds. Front-loading a portion of Brew should make Chen players feel less frustrated when interrupted.

      Hey everyone, just wanted to drop in with an update here!

      As I mentioned before, while we aren't really looking to buff Chen, we feel like the Brew-related concerns you've brought up are valid. We agree that it feels bad to have your Trait interrupted when you're low on Brew, almost like a 5-second silence. With that in mind, I'm excited to share that we're going to modify Chen's Trait.

      In an upcoming patch, Fortifying Brew will change to grant 25 Brew immediately when Chen starts drinking, and then 30 Brew per second after that (down from 40). It will still take 2.5 seconds to reach max Brew just like before, but with a big chunk of that front-loaded it should be a lot less frustrating when you get interrupted early.

      This change is feeling really good in our playtests, and I think it'll be a big quality of life boost for the Brewmaster!

      Also, while we're not looking to make large-scale talent updates at this time, we really appreciate all the feedback that's been shared in this thread and will keep it in mind for potential future changes. Thanks again! =)
