*NEW*Carve reduces the remaining cooldown on Wildfire Bomb by 1 sec for each target hit, up to 5.

 

Carve has done this since Bfa released. Not sure how that's "new".

In the latest PTR build, the second portion of Carve Carve was moved to rank 2 (Carve Carve ). The tooltips do not reflect this change for some reason.

This is also a typo. O2% is actually 40% for Lightning Lasso Lightning Lasso. Fixed both instances. Thanks for your input!

      Rextroy is back with some more interesting videos and it seems he's starting a new series where he pits 40 of one class against 40 of another, presumably to go with BfA's conflict theme. Apparently both fights had a third, unforeseen adversary in the form of lag, but they ended up being a lot of fun nonetheless, with the lag actually adding a bit of tension to the proceedings, as abilities just erupt in waves.
      First off we have a Hero class face-off to mirror Arthas and Illidan's fight from Frozen Throne:
       
      And then it's on to Light vs. Death as Paladins take on the Lich King's elite:
       
      There's also an added bonus, as Rextroy also put together a weird expedition to Northrend, composed entirely of low level recruits to see if they could make it through the ghoul and undead infested Bombardment area in Icecrown. Why? Why not!
       
      It's always great to see these kinds of events, reminding us that there's always something to do in Azeroth, even if you're not too fond of the current content. MMOs are usually at their best when players take the reins and find their own fun, so thanks go out to Rextroy for these types of events and we hope to see more like it soon.
      If you know any interesting events like this, post your favorites below!

      Today's hotfixes are mostly just the PvP mana regen tuning from yesterday, but we also have some more Battle of Dazar'alor changes, this time for Heroic difficulty High Tinker and Rastakhan.
      February 14 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Battle of Dazar’alor High Tinker Mekkatorque Wind Up now grants 10% Haste and Movement Speed in Heroic difficulty (was 20%). Boss health lowered by 5% in Heroic difficulty. King Rastakhan Seal of Purification, Scorching Detonation, and Withering Burst should no longer hit pets. Uldir Taloc Orbs of Harmony will now respawn when the Taloc encounter resets. Player versus Player
      Restoration Druid mana regeneration is now reduced by 55% in PvP. Holy Priest, Holy Paladin, Restoration Shaman, and Mistweaver Monk mana regeneration is now reduced by 50% in PvP. Discipline Priest mana regeneration is now reduced by 45% in PvP. Balance Druid, Feral Druid, and Elemental Shaman mana regeneration is reduced by 35% in PvP. Developers’ notes: We’ve taken a careful look at healer mana during longer PvP engagements in both Arenas and battlegrounds, and the changes above are intended to address several concerns. In PvP, we want mana to feel like a more critical resource, and we want mana efficiency to be an important part of PvP healing. At the beginning of Battle for Azeroth, mana regeneration from all healer specs was reduced by 15-30% (depending on the class), and after reviewing the current state of the game, we feel like further reductions are necessary to both healer specs and a few hybrid specs. Druid
      Restoration Nourish (PvP Talent) mana cost increased by 30% Rogue
      Assassination Neurotoxin now increases the cooldown of affected spells by 1 sec, down from 3 sec. Neurotoxin now has a 45 second cooldown, up from 25 sec. Neurotoxin now has a 3 sec duration, down from 10 sec. Developers note: Unfortunately, we are unable to fix a number of technical issues with this spell at this time. We’re working on a fix for it that we hope to include in 8.1.5. Previous hotfixes.
