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.

Blizzard LogoBlizzard (Source)

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.

      The character selection screen is currently a bit buggy on the Beta, and Blizzard is aware of the bug and suggests waiting instead of closing and reopening the game.
      (Source)
      Is anyone else experiencing an inability to interact with their character select screen? It’s completely black (save the UI borders/buttons and the shadowlands logo). I can click on change realm and addons but have no way to select a character and enter the world.
      There is a problem on the database side, which we are investigating and actively working to resolve—apologies for the problems in the meantime. If you are running into this problem, we would advise waiting on the character selection/character loading screen instead of closing and reopening constantly.
      Thanks Zorbrix,
      Is it the same DB error that is causing the DC when you do try to log in, or is that a separate issue?
      Yeah, the DB got into a bad state and that usually manifests as blank character selection screen, issues loading onto a character, and then trouble “saving” your character in-game like when you get loot, turn in a quest, etc.
      We’ve made some initial fixes that seem to be helping, and we’ll continue to monitor and fix. If you were having problems earlier I’d recommend trying again now.
      Here's how the bug looks like.

      Blizzard added global strings in the latest Shadowlands build for new Accessibility options to prevent motion sickness.
      Motion sickness occurs due to a difference between actual and experienced motion. Symptoms commonly include nausea.
      In Shadowlands, you will be able to reduce camera motion by keeping your character centered and adjust shake intensity, as indicated by the datamined global strings below.
      MOTION_SICKNESS_CHARACTER_CENTERED - Keep Character Centered MOTION_SICKNESS_REDUCE_CAMERA_MOTION - Reduce Camera Motion MOTION_SICKNESS_NONE - Allow Dynamic Camera Movement MOTION_SICKNESS_BOTH - Keep Character Centered and Reduce Camera Motion MOTION_SICKNESS_DROPDOWN - Motion Sickness ADJUST_MOTION_SICKNESS_SHAKE - Shake Intensity SHAKE_INTENSITY_NONE - None SHAKE_INTENSITY_REDUCED - Reduced SHAKE_INTENSITY_FULL - Full Related Shadowlands Beta Build 35432 News

      Rogues received the rest of their Legendary powers on the Beta this week. Missing from the previous week were Subtlety and Outlaw powers.

This maximum effect will last for 0 before fading and beginning the cycle anew.

    • By Stan
      Blizzard will be retiring potions that increase your Experience gains in Shadowlands except for the BfA potion, so it's important to get rid of them or use them before the new expansion hits.
      Elixir of Ancient Knowledge, Elixir of the Rapid Mind, and Excess Potion of Accelerated Learning will become gray items and unusable in Shadowlands, so it is best to use or sell them on the Auction House before Shadowlands.
      The only exception to the rule is Draught of Ten Lands added in Battle for Azeroth that will retain its 10% increase in Experience gains up until level 50.
