Start of BFA ---->> Rogues are all=killing monsters ---> they get nerfed ----> rogue players bitch and whine

Next hotfix -----> Rogues are still all-killing monsters -----> they get nerfed ----> rogue players "Yeah well ok we understand now why you nerfed us last time, but AGAIN???? 

Next hotfix ----> copy paste from previous point


......Nowadays : rogues are still all killing monsters. Like 10 hotfixes later. They seem to understand why 9 of these hotfixes happened, but 10th is, once again, beyond their comprehension.

And i love when they cry and say "goodbye my rogue, cause youre not a 1 click kill anymore, youre 2 click kill now" boohoo poor you

I have to laugh... this constant, "tweaking to talents and power" in every Xpac, just reinforces my thinking of how poor of a job blizz does (generally speaking) in setting talents & power. It appears to me, blizz's "developer minions" do not communicate/coordinate well in setting talents & power. I used to play end-game bgs years ago until I realized, "if you play lowbie bgs there is a lesser chance blizz will be able to screw-up talents & power too much due to the fact, there are far fewer talents and power abilities to deal with. Lowbie bgs is where I will stay.

      Keys to the Model W is a new mount coming in Patch, rewarded from the Mechagon meta achievement (Mecha-Done).
      This tme around, the achievement shouldn't be too hard to complete, because Mechagon is enabled for flying and Blizzard is adding Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part Two in Rise of Azshara.
      Mechacycle Model W
      The rapid technological evolution of the descendents of Mimiron began with the introduction of a new gear, leading to such wonders as the tragically under-produced Model W.

      Animations (Run / Mount Special)
      Do you like the mount?

      Players are currently reporting instances of sharding on Classic Beta. Blizzard confirmed this to be a bug, as they're not planning to use sharding in Classic and they came up with a completely new technology to ensure a smooth launch and an authentic Vanilla experience.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Seen a couple instances of sharding happening since the last server restart about an hour ago. Blizz, what did you do?
      This is a known issue that we are actively investigating. Please continue to report these types of mob-behavior if they are happening in other locations.
      They just said it was a bug tho, it’s a beta, this is what we test in a beta.
      This is definitely why we do a beta test. We can also do things like reset the realm at a busy time like 4:30pm PDT to try and find the source of a certain issue where a crocolisk is losing it’s brain due to how multiple processes are interacting and mirroring code to form a cohesive world. There were similar types of issues like this back in 2004 but we wanted to try and resolve this one before the weekend for the folks who are testing.

      It seems some Vanilla features that weren't that logical but were kept in for Classic are confusing some beta players, as there's a whole lot of issues being reported that aren't actually bugs or issues at all!

      Things like Tauren melee reach being bigger, which is something I experienced going away live during Black Temple Illidan progression (at least for that particular encounter), is confusing to players as it's a significant advantage over other races in some instances. No quest tracking is another apparently confusing issue, as many Mankirk's WIfe seekers well know, and there's a whole lot more where that came from:
      Not Bugs (source)
      As we’ve discussed before, the nature of WoW Classic sometimes invokes different memories for different players, and this leads to certain misconceptions for some about what is or isn’t working as intended.
      The following is a list of commonly-reported gameplay in WoW Classic that is not actually a bug, and is working as we expect it to:
      Tauren’s hitboxes and their melee reach is slightly larger than other races. Being critically struck while using /sit to sit does not cause abilities like Enrage, Blood Craze, and Reckoning to activate. Using the “Automatic Quest Tracking” option does not auto-track newly accepted quests. (It instead will start to track an existing quest once progress towards an objective is started.) Warrior health Regeneration is working at the expected rate. Quests objectives and points of interests are not tracked on the map or minimap. Completed quests are marked on the minimap with a dot. (and not a “?”) Feared players and NPCs run fast. Standing on top of other players while facing away allows spells and attacks to be used. Creature respawn rates are much slower than in Battle for Azeroth. NPCs which offer multiple quests may inconsistently display them as a dot or a “!” on the available quests list. They were inconsistent in 1.12, and we’ve reproduced the exact inconsistency they had back then. Quests that are too low level for do not show up as a “!” in the game world. Available quests do not display a “!” on the minimap. On level up, the message: “Your skill in Protection increased to 15” was added in 1.12.1, and we’re intending to keep that. We appreciate all of your feedback!

      With Classic Beta live, Blizzard posted a list of known issues that are present in the first build of the game.
      If you're participating in the testing and notice a bug that isn't listed below, make sure to report it through the new Bug Reporter, bound to "F6" by default.

      Greetings and welcome to the WoW Classic Beta Test!
      Below is a list of known issues for the initial WoW Classic Beta release. Please note that this list is not a complete depiction of what we’re aware of, but a sampling of issues we believe players may encounter with some regularity. We’ll try to keep this updated with trending issues when possible.
      Classes and Combat:
      Activating Raptor Strike while Auto Shot is toggled on does not cause the hunter to begin to Auto Attack in melee Hunter pets do not auto-cast Dash or Dive when engaging their targets Hunter pets may not immediately return to your side upon entering passive mode Many talents are currently missing their requirements text User Interface:
      Attempting to sign into twitter through the interface option crashes the client World map path indicators during transport loading screens may be inaccurate Items with randomly generated stats will display the <Random Enchantment> tag in the loot window and chat tooltips when being looted Creatures and NPCs:
      Some creatures in the game world are missing textures Environments:
      There is a strip of missing water in the Mosshide Fen area of the Wetlands Dungeons:
      There is no water present in the Ironclad Cove area of the Deadmines dungeon If you find any other bugs in-game, we’d like to encourage you to use the in-game bug reporter to send those bug reports off to us before posting bug reports on these forums. For more information about the in-game bug reporter, please see this post:

      We noticed the presence of Agents of the Black Prince in Rise of Azshara. This article contains spoilers.
      We haven't heard of Wrathion for a long time until now. In Rise of Azshara, we noticed the presence of Blacktalon Watchers in both Nazjatar and during the Essence intro questline, carefully spying on you.

      The agent obviously won't tell you anything and tells you to mind your own business.
      Go about your business, champion of Azeroth. You and I have no quarrel.
      > What's an agent of the Black Prince doing here? (Gossip Text)
      This information isn't mine to give at this time. You have your hands full as it is. Go about your business and you will know more, soon enough.
      Magni sends you to Neltharion's Lair in Highmountain to close fissures and recover an Essence that is later used for your Heart of Azeroth. The questline servers as an introduction to Essences and you will get the The Heart Forge achievement upon completion.
      During the quest, we are aided by Spiritwalker Ebonhorn who is actually Ebyssian of the Black Dragonflight, but he poses no threat, according to MOTHER. What's interesting is the fact that Ebyssian can't leave Highmountain without risking Old God corruption, but we see him enter the new Chamber of Heart. (Source)

      We also found a Blacktalon Watcher in Nazjatar, carefully watching over the area. 

      It seems Wrathion and the Black Dragonflight are going to play a role in Battle for Azeroth's upcoming patch, but we don't know more at this time. Let us know your theories down in the comments!
