Well, it's been a whopping 5 days since the last set of hotfixes, and all we got is a lot of bugfixes, with this being the most important: "Nomi will now also check your bank to see if you have any Silver Mackerel for him to burn."

Classes

Druid

Class Halls

  • Warlocks can now run through the portal to their Class Hall to be successfully teleported to their Class Hall.

Dungeons

  • Maw of Souls
    • Fixed an issue where disconnected players could become stuck in Kvaldir Cages.

Items

  • Items gained from the Druid Class Hall Evergreen perk are now soulbound.

  • The primary stat on all templates has been decreased by about 10%.
  • Discipline Priests now deal 15% less damage in PvP, and all other healing specs now deal 25% less damage in PvP
    • Developers’ Notes: Since all healing specs have had their Intellect increased (detailed below) to increase their healing, we’ve lowered the amount of damage they do against players to 25% (from 15%). Discipline priests are intended to do more damage than other healers and so their damage done is only decreased by 15%.
  • Pets and guardians now take 75% reduced AoE damage in PvP (was 50%).
  • Tanks now take 25% more damage from other players.
    • The stamina of each tank spec has been increased slightly in PvP instances (battlegrounds, arenas, and Ashran).

Quests

  • Fixed a bug that could cause Illidan Stormrage to prevent the “Ravencrest’s Legacy” scenario from continuing.
  • Players will no longer be immediately teleported after accepting “Last Stand of the Moon Guard”, and must speak to Thalrenus Rivertree to be teleported to Meredil.

      Overview
      Battle for Azeroth's second raid, Battle of Dazar'alor, houses 9 bosses. It comes with a unique flashback mechanic that transforms your raid into the opposing faction with racials included, to witness the story from their perspective. Certain boss encounters are faction-specific and the boss order is different for each faction.
      Alliance players will be transformed into Horde players for the last three bosses: High Tinker Mekkatorque, Stormwall Blockade and Jaina Proudmoore.
      Horde players will be transformed into Alliance players for Opulence, Conclave of the Chosen, and King Rastakhan.

      Forbes recently interviewed Morgan Day about Mythic+ and the Mythic Dungeon Invitational and here's a recap of the interview.
      Check out the full interview over at Forbes
      Interview Highlights
      Changes are coming to the MDI in 2019 and you can find an overview in this post. The beginning of MDI closely lines up with the introduction of Reaping and Season 2. Mythic+ is extremely popular and half of the players at level 120 are engaging in Mythic+ content. Certain creatures within dungeons have mechanics that quickly ramp up damage and it was necessary to put a soft cap in those instances, because the fights would become impossible on Tyrannical. There's a fix set of affix combinations that activate each week. The Fortified + Teeming affix combo hasn't been adjusted for Season 2, because Infested that caused a lot of frustrating pulls in combination with said affixes is going away and with Reaping coming in, the system is going to take care of itself. Monsters summoned by the Season 2 Reaping affix don't gain Fortified themselves, but the creature will spawn at half the health of the creature that dies, so it will gain a small percentage of Fortified. There are currently no plans to come up with a system that allows easy key re-rolling. Instead, they'd like to adjust dungeons and bring the huge outliers down a bit. They adjusted King's Rest about a month ago.

      Improvements to Azerite Armor are coming on January 22. Blizzard added a new outer ring with two spec-specific traits to all armor acquired after Mythic Season 2 starts and the new raid opens. You will be able to get the new gear from PvP Season 2, Battle of Dazar'alor, World Quest Emissaries, and from the Titan Residuum vendor, who sells upgraded wares at a higher cost.
      New Azerite powers will become available in Tides of Vengeance Part II. Check out our updated Class guides for more details. 10 more ranks of Azerite Knowledge will be added over the course of January 22 through March. The catchup has been disabled for now, but it will commence soon. Reaching Friendly, Honored, and Revered and with Champions of Azeroth will unlock the appropriate quests to upgrade your Heart of Azeroth for all characters on your account. The cost of Azerite Reforging has been reduced from 72 hours to 24 hours. Blizzard (Source)
      Since the launch of Battle for Azeroth, players have been empowering their Heart of Azeroth and collecting Azerite armor to gear up for the battles ahead. Since then, we’ve made a variety of adjustments to the system—and we have a few more updates coming with the second part of Tides of Vengeance on January 22 that we’d like go into more detail on today.
      With the release of Battle for Azeroth Season 2, we’re introducing new epic Azerite pieces that you can acquire through a variety of methods, including Season 2 PvP, the Battle of Dazar’alor raid, World Quest Emissaries, and from the Mythic Keystone vendor Thaumaturge Vashreen in Zuldazar and Boralus. These new items will have a fifth ring with additional new trait options and is available at Heart of Azeroth level 15.  
      This new outer ring provides two choices of traits per specialization, giving players an opportunity to find items that have traits they particularly want—and the freedom to create new and interesting combinations that may not have been possible before. This additional ring of traits makes each item have a larger impact on your character’s overall power.
      Outer Ring:
      Powers that reside in the new outer ring provide two additional trait options for each of your character’s available specializations.  Example:
      Moment of Repose (Discipline) (Passive) Pain Suppression applies Atonement to the target and instantly heals them for 15,313. Second Ring:
      Powers that reside on the second ring from the outside will often be influenced by where you collected the piece of armor they’re found on. These powers can also be associated with specific class specializations.. Example:
      Seductive Power (Passive) Your spells and abilities have a chance to conjure Bwonsamdi’s spectral visage, beckoning you closer. If you approach him, gain 57 to all stats for 5 minutes, stacking up to 5 times. If you fail to heed his call, lose 1 stack. Third Ring:
      These powers generally benefit the performance of your in-game role—they’ll provide damage increases for DPS classes, increase damage mitigation for tanks, or bolster healing output for healers. Example:
      Bracing Chill (Passive) Your heals have a chance to apply Bracing Chill. Healing a target with Bracing Chill will heal for an additional 2,574 and move Bracing Chill to a nearby ally (up to 6 times). Fourth Ring:
      These are defensive or utility-oriented powers for your class. Example:
      Vampiric Speed (Passive) When an enemy you harmed dies, you heal for 6,361 and gain 93 Speed for 6 seconds. Fifth Ring:
      Azerite Empowerment is the power that resides at the center, and increases an armor piece’s item level by 5.  New Traits to Discover
      You’ll also find new location-specific traits that scale with item level and are available on gear from the Battle of Dazar’alor raid, including:
      Bonded Souls : Your spells and abilities have a chance to trigger a Soulbond for 15 seconds. During Soulbond, every 5 seconds you and your nearest ally are both healed for 3,456 and gain 141 Haste for 5 seconds. Seductive Power: Your spells and abilities have a chance to conjure Bwonsamdi’s spectral visage, beckoning you closer. If you approach him, gain 26 to all stats for 5 minutes, stacking up to 5 times. If you fail to heed his call, lose 1 Stack.  Treacherous Covenant: Your primary stat is increased by 151 while you are above 50% health. You take 15% increased damage while below 20% health. Azerite Knowledge
      With the start of Season 2, we’re also adding 10 more ranks of Azerite Knowledge over the course of  January 22 through March. Each rank of Artifact Knowledge increases the speed at which your Heart of Azeroth levels up.
      Tides of Vengeance Recap: Trait Updates and Additions
      With the launch of Tides of Vengeance on December 11, we replaced many of the Azerite traits we weren’t happy with and continue to iterate on various elements of the system to provide variety and flexibility in player gear choices.
      NEW TRAITS IN THE DARKSHORE WARFRONT
      It’s a good time to keep an eye on the shifting tides of the Darkshore Warfront. We added many new Azerite Armor traits that are just waiting to be collected, including:
      Ancients' Bulwark: Standing still grants you Deep Roots, increasing your Versatility by 179. Moving instead grants you Uprooted, healing you for 259 every 1 second. Apothecary's Concoctions: Your damaging abilities have a chance to deal 1,262 Plague damage over 6 seconds, and your healing abilities have a chance to restore 2,415 health over 6 seconds. These effects are increased by up to 100% based on the target’s missing health. Endless Hunger: Your Versatility is increased by 179. Moving near an enemy’s corpse consumes their essence, restoring 1,815 health.  Shadow of Elune: Your spells and abilities have a chance to increase your Haste by 465 for 15 seconds. At night, you also gain 10% movement speed for the duration. HEART OF AZEROTH LEVELING AND GEARING UP
      Reaching Friendly, Honored, or Revered reputation with the Champions of Azeroth faction now unlocks the appropriate quests to upgrade your Heart of Azeroth for all characters on your account.  
      The cost to change Azerite traits has been reduced from 72 hours to 24 hours.
      We’ve also added a new way for players who participate in Mythic Keystone Dungeons to gain specific Azerite Armor. These players will be able to earn a new currency—Titan Residuum—which can be used to purchase specific items from Thaumaturge Vashreen now located in either Zuldazar or Boralus. You can read more in our forum post.
      Season 2 and the Battle of Dazar’alor are just around the corner—are you ready for the challenges that await?

      The Gates of Ahn'Qiraj opened on January 23, 2006 for the first time ever and players who banged the gong gained the "Scarab Lord" title and the Black Qiraji Resonating Crystal mount. In remembrace of the event, Silithus has been updated with content that allows both factions to compete against each other and the winning faction gets to fly their banner next to the Scarab Gong for the rest of the year.
      Blizzard (Source)
      On January 23, 2006, a bloody war was triggered by a simple sound: the banging of a gong. No rallying fanfare, no bloodthirsty yell; just an eerie silence. Those long, uneasy seconds of dread. The calm before the storm.
      Standing shoulder-to-shoulder before the Scarab Wall, no one could have predicted what would happen—an epic ten-hour battle that claimed the lives of thousands of Azeroth’s bravest—or fully comprehended the effect it would have.
      ACTION FIRST, FACTION SECOND
      That’s not to say the battle at the gates of Ahn’Qiraj came as a surprise. When the menace of C’Thun turned into an urgent threat, leaders across the world pored over plans and forged unlikely connections as pressure mounted. Both factions knew war was coming and personal glory was a hubris no-one could risk. Any notion that one army could defeat General Rajaxx and his colossal battalion was soon abandoned as fantasy.
      It was a unique time: scattered armies with varying allegiances were thrown together and faction pride was put aside. Let’s be clear: the battle at Ahn’Qiraj was won purely on the principle “united we stand, divided we fall.”
      WARMONGERING VS. GOLD HUNGERING
      This uneasy alliance was not without its critics. Some showed their disapproval by shunning the war effort altogether, but others expressed opposition through acts of aggression. Rogue elements on both sides, unwilling to stomach this perceived betrayal of their faction, did not sit idle. Just as neutral auction houses became a tool for factions to share resources, they also became virtual battlegrounds. Crucial resources were picked up for next-to-nothing and sold on for personal gain. As with all wars, those who profit aren’t always the brave.
      The sheer scale of that war effort is almost unimaginable when we live in a time of extended storage and fast mail. But back then, backpacks and cloth stacks were smaller. Getting precious resources gathered, sorted, and sent took many hours. And it took several weeks to source bandages, food, and equipment—resources that were in high demand and would soon dwindle.
      THE IMPORTANCE OF REMEMBRANCE
      We would do well, in these dark times, to remember the courage and spirit of those who were there at the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj. We must have long memories if we’re to make quick work of the demon forces we now face.
      From January 21–23 we ask that you join us as we remember the fallen and celebrate the victory. All of Azeroth are invited to a special holiday, ‘Call of the Scarab,’ where we will gather to perform acts of remembrance and share our factions’ pride.
      Players who are in a different phase can speak to Rhonormu near the gong to enter the correct event phase.
