Tier 20 Set Bonuses for Brewmasters have been revamped, Fists of FuryFists of Fury range increase is baseline for PvE, Unholy Death Knight tuning continues with changes to Crypt FeverCrypt Fever & Necrotic StrikeNecrotic Strike.

Brewmaster Monk

Tier 20 Set Bonuses have been redesigned for Brewmaster Monks.

Quick heads up on the new PTR build - Blackout ComboBlackout Combo's talent tooltip states that it only reduces the cooldown of Breath of FireBreath of Fire by 3 seconds, but it will still reduce it by 6. This will be fixed in the next build.

FYI, the datamined Brewmaster T20 bonuses are an old draft. New draft is this:

2T20: Drinking a Brew triggers Gift of the OxGift of the Ox.
4T20: Gift of the OxGift of the Ox orbs also purify 10% of your staggered damage.

For clarification, numbers in that set bonus idea are not final (thus calling it a draft). We're thinking now that 10% is likely too high, but that the concept sounds good.

Fists of Fury

Range increase is now baseline in PvE.

Correct, Fists of FuryFists of Fury is gaining a range increase baseline, so this part of the Honor Talent has been removed.

Legionfall United

Some players weren't getting procs, but after thorough investigation, it was just bad luck.

Hey all,

We've double and triple checked, but I just wanted to confirm that no changes have been made to Legionfall United - and the ability is still functioning as it should.

Seems like it was just a spot of bad luck that a few folks shared!

Unholy Death Knight

Crypt FeverCrypt Fever will do more damage and changes to Necrotic StrikeNecrotic Strike are imminent.

Crypt FeverCrypt Fever is changing to have a high chance on each healing event to deal more damage than it does currently on live. This change is to smooth out the Honor Talent's power based on the type of healer you are facing, while still keeping an emphasis that this is powerful against heal over time effects. We'll be tuning the proc rate and internal cooldown to make sure we're hitting the numbers we want against each type of healer.

Fix Necrotic Strike!

Changes to Necrotic StrikeNecrotic Strike are coming in 7.2.5 too!

Defiled Augment Rune Bug

Some sort of bug slipped through to live realms that made it possible for Defiled Augment RuneDefiled Augment Rune to titanforge and even have sockets. The issues has been fixed already.

      If I asked you to think of your least favorite Shadowlands World Quest you probably couldn't immediately think of one, but when you see this one and remember it, we're pretty sure you'll agree it's just the worst.
      The Bastion Flight School: Up and Away! World Quest is genuinely one of the worst ever made, and when I came upon this reddit post it immediately reminded me of my own horrific experiences with it, and reading the comments it really is no one's favorite. The flowers just randomly decide not to work, and despite the fact that I've only done the quest maybe twice, this crazy feeling of rage immediately took me over when watching the footage above.
      Here are just some of the comments on the wonderful flying flowers:
      However, we also got an explanation on what's (most likely) happening and a potential solution!

      And now let's move on to a much better WQ, with a tip for it that will make an already pretty short and chill quest even shorter! In the Aid From Above WQ, you can significantly speed things up by spamming the drop crate icon when you're in the correct position. Presumably due to server lag, you can actually drop as many as three crates at once (but will usually and consistently drop two), making the quest one of the absolute fastest in the Shadowlands.
      So what are some of your favorite and least favorite World Quests in the Shadowlands?

      A couple weeks ago delicatedead posted a very funny flow chart for picking the class you want to go with, and now it's been greatly enhanced with some cool images! While the actual helpfulness of the chart is debatable/right on the money, what certainly isn't debatable is its accuracy in portraying some of the specs, and it's high-level humor!

      As many players took the chart test, plenty actually got to their mains through it's choices, so there's definitely something to it! Personally I take offense at Fury Warrior not being behind a "do you want to play the best spec ever, but perform poorly on the charts" question, but nothing is perfect. Also, the one for Survival Hunter is probably the best in there.

      We already talked about the weird ways the Kyrian carry specific player forms, but it seems most Shadowlands flying creatures don't have a lot of respect for the things they carry...
      The Venthyr's General Draven has two very specific carrying styles himself, first the "hold them this way in case you need to smash something using their body":

      And the "it's just Theotar, who cares how I carry him" style:

      We didn't even mention the third style he uses, as it's currently involved in a lawsuit with the boomkin in question:

      But it's not just the Kyrian and Venthyr that got in on the weird carry action, as Ardenweald's denizens have their own ideas on optimal transport, and they're... well:

      And finally, the kings of in-flight comfort, the Kyrian have discovered a way to get both you and your mount on board... although the technology isn't quite foolproof yet:

      The title maybe doesn't sound like a big deal, but it's a lot worse than it sounds. You may have seen the recent crazy turn speeds that created flightless brutosaur helicopters and similar, but now that particular console command is being used offensively.
      After sharing the console turn speed command earlier in a fun clip, Automaton17 came back with a followup as they noticed the command being used in PvP to mess with players' controls. While mind controlling a player you can actually adjust this variable (and only this one) to completely mess with their turn speed, making it either crazy high (so that any press makes them spin wildly), or making it 0 (so that they can't move with the keyboard at all). Now I can hear everyone yelling about keyboard turners already, but most people keep their default bindings for movement keys and occasionally presa their A and D keys, so it's still a pretty big deal.
      This sounds like one of those no-brainer suspension/ban causes, so I really wouldn't suggest trying this, at least not outside of a friendly duel to check out how it works and have some fun. This is quite literally editing someone else's WoW configuration while having control over their character, and while it may sound fun and entertaining, and "just" affects keyboard turners, there are still many new players that won't even understand what's happening nor how to fix it, and plenty of veterans might be confused too:
      Here's the original clip of the turn speed variable changes, we couldn't find any of it in PvP action:
      The full thread goes into why this one particular variable is editable while others aren't, as well as tips on how to fix it (a /reload or logout works or you can just use the /console turnspeed 180 command to reset it to default and If it keeps happening you can also just rebind your turn keys to strafe instead).
      Hopefully Blizzard can address this soon, as having other players edit any of your settings is just wrong, no matter how silly it looks.
