Only took you 23 minutes to complain and the official patch notes aren't even out yet. Sheesh.

First of all, there won´t be any more hotifixes until they launch it, i don´t care a bout patch notes, i know everything from wowhead, they won´t make any huge changes not even a week before launch. I don´t have a single reason to be hyped for 7.1.5. They didn´t change ANYTHING, unholy is still sh*t and no changes to it´s gameplay, just buffing bad talents. Survival hunter is now useless spec in terms of diversity, all hunters now have traps, survival is the only melee spec with no stun, AND the lowest dps :)

I have no reason to look forward to the patch except AK catchup so i can reroll :)

I'll have to agree that although unholy isn't amazing dps wise, it's way better than playing frost. However if you have the gear and know how to play unholy you can easily out dps frost even without the bracers. 

I had no problem doing just that last night in heroic EN.

I don't know what you're reading man but there are definitely some buffs coming for unholy in 7.1.5

lol survival are not the lowest dps you just dont play it well

Actually, Survival is dead last for 75-percentile for Normal, Heroic, and Mythic Emerald Nightmare, and again last for 75-percentile Normal and Heroic Trial of Valor.  At 50-percentile, the only spec Survival beats is Arcane Mage on Normal and Heroic EN, Frost and Arcane Mages for Normal and Heroic ToV, and again is last for Mythic EN.  Just because you can beat other people in a given group does not make a spec better or worse.  What does is the aggregate statistics of hundreds and thousands of parses.  This shows how the spec does compared to others.

Unlike a bunch of people on this post, I am actually excited for 7.1.5.  The micro holidays look fun.  Being able to catch alts up on AK is great.  Really looking forward to Brawler's guild again.  Loved MoP dungeons so I am glad to see their return.  We should be glad that content is being pushed out at a staedy rate as opposed to Warlords.

I don't think they're raising the cap in 7.1.5, that's coming in 7.2 along with the new traits and all that. I could be wrong though.

I feel like you're torn between the lack of a new cap and the fact that you're now capped. You seem unsure about whether to be happy or not :p

      From the "this took a whole lot of time and effort to make" files, here comes Light's Champions 2, a movie length WoW machinima featuring the fight against the Burning Legion. While it does have a 2 in the title, you don't need to have watched the first one, as it's a standalone story with characters from the original. Cstyle12 took two years on this project and it shows, with custom animations for all the characters using Cinema4D, After Effects and Premiere Pro.
      Here's the trailer in case you're not prepared (© Illidan, 2007) to go straight into the almost 1 and a half hour long movie:
      And here's the actual machinima itself:
      While reddit is busy with the tragedy that is the video's duration (only 3 seconds away from being 1H23min45Secs, aka 12345), you can also check out the first Light's Champions machinima:
      In any case, huge congratulations to Cstyle on seeing this thing through and all the dedication and effort put into it, it really shows what someone can do with enough passion for a project. We really need more like you in the WoW community!

      It seems we're getting a whole lot of Alterac Valley soon, as Classic is getting the 1.12 version in one of the latter content releases and we're getting the special 15th Anniversary edition on live servers in Patch 8.2.5 during the event! Today at midnight CEST there's another Play with the Blues event on the 8.2.5 PTR gathering all Valley enthusiasts and all you have to do is hop on to the PTR and use the Group Finder to jump in!

      You can get the high-rez versions of the two original mounts from the event, which you can check out here as well.
      Play with the Blues (source)
      Tomorrow 12:00 AM CEST, please join us on the 8.2.5 PTR for an old school Alterac Valley Play with the Blues.
      Starting promptly at 3:00 p.m. PDT, Blizzard employees will be testing our 15th Anniversary rendition of AV on the PTR, and you can join us for some strife in the Field of Strife.
      Please log into the PTR by that time and then open your Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and switch to the Player vs. Player tab. You’ll see Alterac Valley waiting for you to join.
      Afterward, please return to this thread with your feedback.
      Thank you!

      The news image above is fan art created by Dogslug. You can find more of his work here.
      Blizzard mentioned multiple times that they would add Allied Races whenever they fit the story. The Horde's hottest candidates are currently the Vulpera of Vol'dun, even though their story doesn't make a whole lot of sense right now. Recent rumors suggest that Gilgoblins could be in the final pair of Horde Allied Races too.
      The Vulpera currently have too many unique animations, and they are a community-favorite. Pretty much every Horde player wants them to become playable. They're coming, and it's just a matter of when. We think the first set of Allied Races will be introduced in Patch 8.2.5 with the second one coming in Patch 8.3.5. Based on datamining, the Vulpera should be live on or before September 20th. You can find all their customization options here.

      On the other side of the spectrum, the Alliance will get Mechagnomes led by Prince Erazmin of Mechagon, but it's still not clear what the second race will be.

      Lightforged Forsaken led by Calia Menethil are a possibility based on the Before the Storm novel and Calia also received a new model in the initial Patch 8.2.5 build.
      Next up are Gilgoblins! We encounter them in zones like Vashj'ir and Nazjatar in Patch 8.2. They are a species of aquatic goblins created by Hobart Grapplehammer. Gilgoblins are very similar to traditional Goblins. They have various tattoos and fins on their arms to help them swim.

      Gilgoblins are currently not included in the game files as playable races as opposed to Mechagnomes and the Vulpera. They only exist as creatures.

      The female model has more customization options compared to the male model. Would you like to see them become playable in the future?

      We know that Blizzard wants to add more customization options to World of Warcraft, and a recent leak suggests that all Allied Races will become customization options in Patch 9.0 except for the Nightborne and the Vulpera. Let's see what the first set of Allied Races is going to be now that Patch 8.2 should hit Public Test Realms reasonably soon!
      TL;DR
      The first set of Allied Races (Mechagnomes/Vulpera) coming in Patch 8.2.5 on or before September 20th. The final set of Allied Races will include Gilgoblins and Lightforged Forsaken (based on the Before the Storm novel) in Patch 8.3.5. We know that Mechagnomes and the Vulpera are coming, but what about the second set of Allied Races?

      Frozen Arathi Basin (Resource Race)
      Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You'll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a - mostly - frozen lake. One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you're prepared for the weather.

      Today's hotfixes come with a lot of nerfs to Queen Azshara. Vitality Conduit now correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Queen Azshara When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Fixed an issue where casting either Moonfire or Regrowth twice in a row while affected by Repeat Performance was not triggering the silence. Fixed a bug on Mythic difficulty where the damage effect from Deferred Sentence could trigger the healing reduction from Obey or Suffer right as the decrees transitioned between each other. Siege of Boralus  Corrected an issue where players’ pets were unable to attack the tentacles during the Viq’Goth encounter. Items
      Heart of Azeroth Vitality Conduit (Essence) correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields on them. Learning new ranks of Conflict and Strife (Essence) should now properly grant achievements such as Power Up.
