Additional class tuning is coming today and later in the week and Draught of Souls, Stormstrike and Windstrike get partially un-nerfed.

It's patch day and despite the huge amount of class changes both in the 7.2.5 notes and the additional PvP only notes, there will be even MORE tweaks coming today and later in the week. Draught of SoulsDraught of Souls is also getting a slight reprieve for Fury Warriors, but no exact details as of yet.

As Patch 7.2.5 approaches release, we wanted to let you know that there are a number of tuning hotfixes in the works which we plan to apply either with or shortly after Patch 7.2.5 in each region. Many of these changes will be focused on PvP (and we shared the majority of them on Friday), but there will also be adjustments to a few Nighthold raid mechanics, and an initial set of buffs to a few underperforming specs.

Note: We’re planning another round of class tuning for later in the week once we have more data from live realms; these are merely a first pass. Additionally, we plan to partially reduce the 7.2.5 nerf to Draught of SoulsDraught of Souls for Fury Warriors.

We’ll share full details on all of these changes as soon as possible.

And then there's some more un-nerfing, for Enhancement Shamans, as Blizzard decided to hold off on plans to change how certain skill procs work, so StormbringerStormbringer offhand procs for StormstrikeStormstrike and WindstrikeWindstrike are back on the table!

We talked about it more and decided to let StormstrikeStormstrike and Windstrike offhand attacks proc StormbringerStormbringer for now.

The thinking above is still true, and something we want to keep an eye on, but the changes already in place mean the numbers are quite different from the 7.0 version. In 7.0, if you had e.g. a 10% chance to proc from StormstrikeStormstrike (main hand only), and 0% from Lava LashLava Lash and BoulderfistBoulderfist (and the procs were worth double due to TempestTempest), there was a huge swing in proc chance between using 3 StormstrikeStormstrikes and using 3 other buttons. In 7.2.5, you may have 8% from the Lava LashLava Lash and RockbiterRockbiter, and 16% from the StormstrikeStormstrike, and the a proc causes you to replace 2 other buttons with 2 StormstrikeStormstrike. The swing is much smaller now.

Because the 7.2.5 changes would already reduce the streakiness of StormbringerStormbringer procs (and because allowing offhands to proc is slightly more consistent with the tooltips), we'll let that play out on live and inform whether we need to make future changes to mitigate that streakiness further.

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a growing raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.

      We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 5/11-Heroic 11/11-Normal Antorus, having killed every boss we've pulled.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
      We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for raiding the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS: YES. We badly need RANGED DPS, but exceptional melee will be considered, particularly mail.
      Healers: MAYBE. We'd like a restoration/balance druid who can dps as well as they can heal and are okay being expected to play either role.
      Tank: NO. No current needs.

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you the inside picture on how we operate as a raid team.

      Our Patch 7.3.5 zone preview continues with Fate's Veil, Forge of Aeons, and more.
      Patch 7.3.5 adds several new zones to the game and it looks like they might be used for scenarios.
      Fate's Veil (Void Elves Unlock Scenario)
      The zone is very similar to the the in Locus-Walker & Alleria quest chain in Mac'Aree, possibly related to Void Elves. It has a cool skybox with Old God infested planets.

      Forge of Aeons (Lightforged Draenei Unlock Scenario)

      The Sunwell

      Uuna Scenario
      A new zone called "A Dark Place" was added in Patch 7.3.5. It's referred to as "Uuna Scenario" in the game files. Not much information is available at this time, but you probably came across Uuna on Argus. Uuna's Doll drops from an ur'zul elite (The Many-Faced Devourer). It's most likely going to be some sort of solo content, where players help Uuna.

      New scarab mounts related to the Call of the Scarab micro-holiday have been added to the game in Patch 7.3.5.
      We found four new models in the game files so far as of 7.3.5 Build 25632. They all share the same flavor text and will only be available during the Call of the Scarab micro-holiday.
      "The Qiraji War Tank has only been seen recently during the Call of the Scarab, could this hint at a resurfacing of the deadly creatures?"
