Join us live on Twitch Thursday, April 27, as we sit down with Game Director Ion Hazzikostas for our next live developer Q&A. We’ll be looking back over the first few weeks of 7.2, and answering your questions about everything involved with the patch, including the Broken Shore, Legion Assaults, new and improved dungeons, and more.

Feel free to submit questions by posting in this forum thread or via Twitter using the hashtag #LegionQA.

We’re looking forward to getting the chance to dive in and answer as much as we can, so we hope to see you Thursday at 11:00 a.m. PDT!

Fully knowing that these will not get answered in the Q&A, I'm going to be a naughty little rascal and ask some here instead;

 

 - Would you - Ion Hazzikostas personally - have preferred a few weeks extra to polish 7.2, with the thought of hotfixing (at the time) resource farming and monster item level scaling in mind?

 

 - Any chance on you further improving the generally very well received Broken Shore + Daily Assault World Quests for future content?

 

 - Can we please not have Assaults happening in the middle of the night, or at least let those extend until, say, 10 or 11 AM?

 

 - More interactivity regarding building structures on Broken Isles (Like defending them by means of WQ's or scenario's (Even if they ultimately get destroyed, it feels less "I just watched the world burn and did nothing to stop it"))

I can consolidate

"any plans to make the broken isle content good?" XD

Timeless isle 3.0 did not impress even then I think the patch should have been called broken shore and the actual patch when we get the raid called tomb.

Does this stuff ever have a net positive? It just seems to remind most of the player base why they are constantly annoyed at the development team's overall incompetence?.

Can you elaborate on why they are incompetent?

I could make an hour video describing how poorly thought out most of their stuff is. Just look at 7.2's release.

Nothing wrong with 7.2 so far imho, gave us new things to do for all types of players (challenges for the more hardcore, assaults and new broken shore WQs for everyone) and is a welcome breather before the release of Tomb raid.

Pretty happy here too. No major complaints other than a few quests could have been a bit more thought out on the Broken Shore. Nothing major though. 

Although.. Graveyards. More of them. Please.

      It's been quite a while since we checked in with the tanks and healers in Castle Nathria, so here we are looking at the Mythic logs for the past few weeks! We'll also be looking at Vengeance and Guardian tanks with our guide writers, as well as Resto Shaman and Druid healers.
      With healers and tanks we don't have to worry about under-representation messing with the numbers, as the least played spec has over 8,000 logs (and the most played, Resto Sham, 62,000). We'll start with the healers, as the HPS numbers are more relevant than the tanks' DPS, with the 95th percentile chart first, as Resto Druids jump up a lot in the higher bracket:

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Restoration Druid by Torty:
      Restoration Shaman by Seksi:
      And on to the tank DPS, starting with the 95th percentile:

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Guardian Druid by Pumps:
      Vengeance Demon Hunter by Excidias:
       
      You can also check out this week's DPS log rankings here, and as always, for more details on the classes and specs themselves, check out our guides!

      Shawn Routhier, a Senior Security Engineer at Blizzard Entertainment, made a fascinating presentation on WoW's economy and the security surrounding it at Splunk Conference.
      Probably the most interesting fact is that 21 billion gold moves through World of Warcraft each day.

      The presentation mostly revolves around the tech Blizzard uses for the Auction House and transactions. You can watch the full presentation here.

      The World Quest for Sorrowbane is currently up on EU servers. The two-hand weapon is relatively easy to acquire and has Item Level 180, so it's almost on par with Mythic dungeons loot.
      The sword requires some preparation, but you shouldn't have any difficulties getting it if you follow these steps:
      Buy 1 Strength of Blood from Ta'tru at 51, 79 in Revendreth. The potion costs 30 crafting reagents that you must either collect or buy on the Auction House. Do note that the items required to purchase the potion change regularly. Buy 1 Potion of Unusual Strength from Au'larrynar at 54, 48 in Maldraxxus. The potion costs 1 gold. Bind your Hearthstone to the Theater of Pain at 51, 30 in Maldraxxus. Wait for the A Few Bumps Along the Way World Quest and complete it at 41, 50 in Maldraxxus to receive 2 stacks of Battle Hardened. Collect 4 stacks of mushroom buffs (Edible Redcap) at around 77, 57 in Maldraxxus. Hearth back to the Theater of Pain. Use Strength of Blood and Potion of Unusual Strength to pull out the sword at 51, 49 in Maldraxxus. Now, you will receive Sorrowbane. You can also check out the following video by ZaFrostPet.
      If you do the mushroom part last and there are lots of players, you might not make it due to their insanely low respawn rate, which is why you should check the spot where you click the 4 mushrooms before starting the World Quest, as pointed out by Gloomlusti.

      It's Timewalking week, so don't forget to equip your Heart of Azeroth!
      While the Heart of Azeroth is obsolete in Shadowlands, it works along with Essences in Timewalking dungeons and raids. It gets even better if you find any spare Azerite gear in your bank. Equipping it provides a huge DPS boost.
      Cataclysm Timewalking is ongoing, and you can get an Item Level 200 piece of gear by completing 5 Timewalking dungeons and more gear from the Timewalking version of the Firelands raid.
