  • Ignite spreading will no longer incorrectly remove other Mages' Ignite.

Monk

  • Fortifying Brew should no longer grant more than the intended bonus when combined with other effects that increase health.

Shaman

  • Enhancement Shamans should no longer be prevented from using instant Healing Surge while moving.

PvP

  • Experience earned from gaining Honor has been reduced by approximately 50%.
    • Developer’s note: We want battlegrounds and skirmishes to be a worthwhile and rewarding activity while leveling, but that should not be the most efficient method for gaining XP. While we've decreased the experience from PvP, it is still more efficient than it was in previous expansions.

  • Fixed a bug causing players who died during the sequence of Dalaran's teleportion would get stuck in Deadwind Pass.

Artifact

  • Rogue player should no longer sometimes experience issues using their Smoke Bomb during "The Unseen Blade".
  • Players should no longer be erroneously placed in a phase in Deadwind Pass that makes them unable to complete quests in the area, including "Following the Curse."
  • Hunters completing to quest to obtain their second or third artifact should no longer receive the quest "Hunter to Hunter" after turn-in.
  • The points of interest for the Warrior quest “Legacy of the Icebreaker" are now displaying correctly and the stage objectives update appropriately.

Azsuna

  • Daglop should no longer disengage with the player, allowing “Minion! Kill Them!” to be completed normally.
  • During "The Right Weapon for the Job", shipwrecked captives in the Shipwreck Arena clubhouse should no longer glow as if they’re viable targets for the quest.
  • Players who leave the area and return during the “The Scythe of Souls” should be able to complete the quest.
  • Players entering the Nor'danil Wellspring in Azsuna should no longer be incorrectly queued to enter the Withered Scenario in Suramar.
  • Players should no longer fail to loot several quest objects in the Nar’thalas Academy during quests such as "Study Hall: Combat Research" and “Dressing with Class”.

Highmountain

  • The bungee rope attached to the player should no longer disappear during the quest “Going Down, Going Up”.
  • Mayla Highmountain should no longer leave combat and reset the Wrath of Dargrul boss fight during “The Underking”.
  • On “Murlocs: The Next Generation” and “Oh, the Clawdacity!”, Murky’s abilities no longer affect other players in PvP. Gurrullrurlll mrrrgrglru ruluulll.

Stormheim

  • "Waking the Shieldmaiden" now has a correctly-placed location dot on the map.

Val’sharah

  • Fixed a number of issues with the "Defend The Temple" Bonus Objective in Val'sharah.

UI

  • Obelisk of the Void should appear in the Dungeon Journal for all ranged damage dealers and healers.

Zones

  • Orgrimmar, Stormwind, and previously invasion-affected areas should once again be unified for single realms.
    • Developer’s note: On RP servers, we’re setting sharding and cross-realm zoning back to how things were working before the Burning Legion invaded. This had been changed for stability during pre-launch events and invasions.

Have you deleted your WTF/Cache files? You'll need to reformat your addons, but apparently this fixes it.

      Mione is back at it and this time it was the Emerald Nightmare's own Cenarius that went down vs. the lone Vengeance Demon Hunter. Pretty damn impressive since EN is technically still the same tier as the current endgame raid, Nighthold (even though it's waay behind on item levels). The fight itself is pretty exhilarating as well, as the health on the DH keeps flying up and down the whole time!
       
      And here's the armory link for the 918 ilev Demon Hunter.

      Better stats and scaling in PvE, worse scaling in PvP and more changes are live.
      Update: It seems the procc rate was buffed as well and we'll find out the exact details in the hotfix notes later today.

      After the big announcement about the Artifact Knowledge cap being reduced, today we're getting a bit of an offset (or consolation prize for some) as the "infinity trait" aka Concordance of the Legionfall just got buffed, at least in PvE. The changes are up already on live servers.
      Placeholder for tweet 867444216745439232 It did not get the base buff PvP, however, and the scaling actually got nerfed:
      Placeholder for tweet 867444363655233536 We also got some clarifications on when exactly the PvP tuning comes into effect:
      Placeholder for tweet 867445986959818752 And in the most recent update, we found out the procc rate was buffed as well, but we'll be getting more details later:

      Mythic+ scaling, major Arms Warr changes, another brawl with the blues and more on this week's PTR.
      Another new week on the PTR and another batch of development notes. Mythic + difficulties will scale a little more steeply as the buff to mobs health and damage will go up by 10% instead of the 8 so far. We also have some significant changes to a few classes again, with Arms Warriors getting the biggest and Marksmanship and Beast Mastery Hunters getting Honor Talent tweaks. There are also new legendaries and T20 tweaks, a new concert at the Darkmoon Faire and there's another skirmish with the blues this weekend. We also got the raid testing schedule for the weekend, featuring 4 mythic bosses and an open LFR.
      Lore (source)
      Hi everyone! There’s a few things to call out for this PTR update:
      First, we’re continuing iteration on 7.2.5 class changes, and this build has some pretty substantial changes for a couple of specs. Arms Warriors in particular have a lot of updates and revisions, and both Marksmanship and Beast Mastery Hunters have several changes to their Honor Talents.
      We’re also continuing to iterate on Tier 20 set bonuses, and have added several new Legendary items in this build. Once the PTR is up (or shortly thereafter), you should be able to find the new Legendaries on Flaskataur in Dalaran if you’d like to give them a try.
      We’ve turned on the Darkmoon Faire for this week as there’s a new band in town! The concert event starts every hour on the half hour. We’d like to get some testing and feedback, so please let us know what you think!
      This build also has a tweak to Mythic Keystone difficulty. Specifically, the amount of health and damage that enemy creatures get from each additional difficulty level is increasing from 8% health and damage to 10% per keystone level. When we increased the overall difficulty of Mythic+ dungeons in 7.2, we didn't fully account for the increase in power that players would get from their new Artifact Traits. That hasn't been a major problem just yet, but once the Tomb of Sargeras raid opens and the maximum item level from drops increases, everyone’s going to get a LOT stronger in a hurry, which will quickly compound the issue. We're making this change to ensure that things don’t get too out of hand at the top end of the spectrum.
      Lastly, we’d like to do another Skirmish with the Blues this week to gather some data on where PvP balance currently sits on the PTR to assist with PvP tuning. We’re scheduling this for Friday, May 26 from 2 PM to 4 PM Pacific time (5 PM to 7 PM Eastern). Any data we can get at this stage will be extremely helpful, so we hope you’ll join us.
      Thanks again everyone, and happy testing!
      Previous dev notes (May 16).
