We're 4 for 4 in this first week of Battle for Azeroth and as we head into the weekend we see Azerite armor outer ring requirements reduced on the Heart of Azeroth, Affliction Warlock Deathbolt fixes, Conquest removals until PvP Season 1 starts, Brewmaster PvP fixes/nerfs, the removal of two belt enchant from PvP, and a bit fewer fixes for professions and quests than usual.

It only took Blizzard an entire PTR and 4 release days to figure out that this was a stupid design decision while this has been mentioned countless times. Does Blizzard even play their own game with these restrictions that players have? Did they really think that it was totally fine?

Damn chill man. Nothing important has happened yet so its not like it really affects people. Even mythic dungeons were doable without them.

But we clearly need to get mad, even if it's things that don't really effect things as is! Remember when they let us get random legendaries for other classes randomly if we had ALL the legendaries for our class? I mean sure 99% of people weren't even close to that but HOW DARE THEY

If it doesn't affect people, then why did they put that in the hotfix at all? If it doesn't affect people, why were people complaining about it during PTR as well?

Cause it was needed before we start raiding and M+. Right now everything can be completed without a completely unlocked piece of 340 Azerite gear. Thats why it affects no one right now. Is that really so hard to get? Those complaining just wanted it to get done eventually but as long as it happened before raid opening who really cares?

People that want to push Mythic+ as there's no other progression content right now.

That's the problem... Where's the progression?

Game has been out for less than a week. We have a story to experience, and up to mythic dungeons. Later we get Mythic+ and raids. You can't complain how you /need/ these traits here and now for something, then also complain that there's nothing you need the traits for

      In this week's 8.3 Build 32805, Blizzard has updated Death Knight eyes with Lich King style smoke.
      Blizzard has updated the Death Knight eye glow multiple times throughout 8.3 testing. Below is a comparison of the last two PTR versions and the one we currently have live on 8.2.5 retail.

      Thanks to reddit user Malevolent_Vengeance for the screenshot.
      In this week's 8.3 PTR patch, the latest version comes with smoke coming off of their eyes.

      Patch 8.3.0 Build 32805
      All races can become Death Knights in Visions of N'Zoth and there will be a new starting experience for the class which involves Bolvar. If you want to create an Allied Race or Pandaren Death Knight in Visions of N'Zoth, you must pre-order WoW Shadowlands.

      In Patch 8.3, any tanking specialization or a Druid of any spec with Bear Form active will have a flat +50% threat modifier applied to them when they unlock the Major Slot on their Heart of Azeroth. Changing specs to non-tank specs or leaving Bear Form will remove the threat modifier.
      Up to now, tank specializations received bonus threat for each slot they had unlocked on their Heart of Azeroth. This is changing in Visions of N'Zoth and you'll receive +50% threat once you've unlocked the Major Slot.
      A player with Heart of Azeroth level 70 should have roughly the same amount of total threat modifiers before and after Patch 8.3 goes live.
      Let's hope the threat modifier will be baseline for all tank specs in WoW Shadowlands.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We made a change via hotfix a few months ago to grant Tank specialization characters bonus threat for each slot they had unlocked on their Heart of Azeroth. In the Visions of N’Zoth update, we have changed this slightly.
      In Visions of N’Zoth, once you have unlocked the Major Slot, if you are any tanking specialization or a druid of any specialization with Bear Form active, you will just have a +50% threat modifier applied to you. Changing specializations to a non-tank specialization or leaving Bear Form will remove this threat modifier.
      There is no longer any bonus threat for each unlocked slot, you just get a sizable threat bump from the start. This should help reduce some issues where tanks with different Heart of Azeroth levels and slot unlocks were having difficulties with threat between each other.
      edit: This threat modifier should be multiplicative, not additive. A player currently at Heart of Azeroth level 70 with all slots unlocked should have roughly the same amount of total threat modifiers before and after the Visions of N’Zoth update hits.

      With the release of the updated Recruit A Friend program, unclaimed rewards from the previous version of the program will expire on December 31.
      Here's a short reminder for everyone with pending RAF rewards earned under the previous version of the program. You must claim them before the end of this year.
      Blizzard (Source)
      UPDATE: If you were active in the previous Recruit A Friend program, you will no longer be able to earn rewards under the previous program as of December 31, 2019. All unclaimed rewards earned under the previous program will expire and we will be removing the redemption functionality.

      Hurricane released a teaser for the Black Temple trailer that will be slightly longer than his Naxxramas trailer released back in 2017.
      Hurricane has been working on the Black Temple trailer for the last three months and we will need to wait a little longer for the full video.

      Ny'alotha raid testing continues this week with The Prophet Skitra on Mythic difficulty and Halls of Devotion, the second LFR wing of the raid.
      Blizzard (Source)
      On Friday, December 13th, we will be continuing our raid tests in Ny’alotha, the Waking City. After the test is complete we will make the second wing of Looking for Raid available for the weekend.
      Friday, December 13th
      The Prophet Skitra - Mythic Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)
      Halls of Devotion - Looking for Raid Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Zuldazar, Boralus, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade III in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players’ effective level to 120 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we’re satisfied that we’ve received that information for a given boss, we’ll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.
