The only reason it is still called Chaos BoltChaos Bolt is because Blizzard has been reworking and rebalancing it for the last 5 xpacs, at least 3x each xpac. I'm exaggerating, but you get the point. I'd normally go feral if you disagree with me, but with these recent PvP changes I think I'd rather bubble hearth before your rebalanced Imprison comes off cooldown.

I feel like you always need to be so careful with big hitters like CB - there is such a fine line between it needing to be impactful, but not strong enough to global someone with the right distance and travel time. They're still working to get it right, that's for sure.

Makes me think about the frost mage in MoP with the frostbomb shatter wombo combo. Being able to make any long cast insta and follow it up with another insta on top of having powerful damage CD's (Especially with some classes like priest power infusion back then) make for some hilarious "Oh you're a tank? How cute" scenario's.

Yep, exactly. It's that horrible moment of trying to keep things powerful and actually make sense to cast, but also make sure that they can't easily kill in one CC.

      We're revisiting Pandaria in Patch 8.3, so Blizzard added a new soft pink recolor of the good old serpent mount to the game. The source of the mount is a placeholder and unknown for now.
      Chalcedony Cloud Serpent
      The gentle Chalcedony Cloud Serpents love to play in the petals that fall in the Arboretum, coloring their scales a soft pink hue.

      Hallow's End has arrived on live servers and there are no notable updates this year. The Headless Horseman's loot has been adjusted to item level 395. Check out our Hallow's End guide for more information about the event.
      Blizzard (Source)
      It’s time for Tricky Treats, costumes, and—of course—the return of the Headless Horseman during this year’s Hallow’s End!
      Hallow’s End celebrates the break of the Forsaken from the Scourge.
      Fun and mischief reign as the Innkeepers of Azeroth give treats, and tricks, to whomever asks.
      The spookiest time of year has arrived once more, and the Headless Horseman rides forth to strike terror into the hearts and minds of Azeroth’s citizens.
      When: October 18–November 1
      Where: Trick-or-Treat throughout the inns of Azeroth, Northrend, Pandaria, Outland, Draenor, and the Broken Isles (Dalaran) for tasty treats and currency to buy Hallow’s End delights.
      All together now! —the Headless Horseman is back to set fire to Razor Hill and Goldshire once more. You’ll need to lend a hand on the bucket brigade to put them out and face the infamous rider.
      It would be a lovely time of year to take a stroll through the Scarlet Monastery’s Graveyard if the Headless Horseman hadn’t decided to make it his new lair. If you're lucky and succeed in routing this menace from within, you may ride off with his steed.
      Throughout Hallow’s End, characters level 20-120 will be able to queue up for this ghoulish encounter in the Dungeon Finder.
      This year you’ll be able to exchange your Tricky Treats for a newly added 2018 toy:
      Headless Horseman's Hearthstone Head to Val’sharah to undertake a quest that begins with the Hag of the Crooked Tree in Bradensbrook. Follow the tale through to its culmination and you’ll receive some Tricky Treats and a chance of receiving one of four utterly bewitching hats.
      Hat of the First Sister Hat of the Second Sister Hat of the Third Sister Hat of the Youngest Sister ACHIEVEMENTS
      There are a total of 21 achievements that can be earned during this event. Completing the Meta-Achievement, Hallowed Be Thy Name, rewards the title: The Hallowed.

      Ny'alotha, the Waking City comes with a raid skip and once you defeat the first boss, you'll receive the raid skip quest and must collect 4 Corrupted Flesh Samples from the raid's penultimate boss to gain access to the skip.
      Players on 8.3 PTR discovered that once you defeat Wrathion, you will receive the "Ny'alotha: MOTHER's Guidance" quest, which unlocks a raid skip, granted that you've defeated the raid's eleventh boss, Carapace of N'Zoth, four times. After that, you should be able to skip straight to Carapace of N'Zoth without having to deal with the rest of the bosses.
      Ny'alotha is a twelve-boss raid and it's a good thing that they decided to include a raid skip.

      Cross-Realm Mythic Eternal Palace opens next week and Blizzard just announced nerfs for Lady Ashvane and Queen Azshara on Mythic difficulty to go live with it on October 22.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hello!
      Earlier this week, the Mythic Hall of Fame for Azshara’s Eternal Palace reached its capacity, and guilds around the world have until the next weekly reset in each region to earn their Feat of Strength. At that time, Mythic difficulty will become available to cross-realm groups.
      Along with the closure of the Hall of Fame and the Achievement, we intend to make the following tuning changes during weekly maintenance in each region:
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Lady Ashvane Lady Ashvane’s health reduced by 5% in Mythic difficulty. Waterlogged periodic damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Rippling Wave damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Queen Azshara The "Stand Together!" and "Stay!" decree combination is no longer possible in Heroic difficulty. Overzealous Hulk and Tidemistress health reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Draining Azshara’s Ancient Ward now reduces its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Empowering a Ward of Power now increases its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Healer-specialization characters are now less likely to be targeted with decree combinations that include “March!” in all difficulties. Short Circuit now drains 10% less energy from the affected Ward in all difficulties. Essence of Azeroth now has an increased duration if there are fewer than 20 players in the raid in Normal and Heroic difficulties, and lasts 30 seconds (was 25) in Mythic difficulty. As always, we’ll let you know here if we decide to make any further changes.
      Thank you very much!
