The guild Onslaught of Skeram (US) was able to speed-clear Blackwing Lair in just 19 minutes and 10 seconds, beating the previous record by over one minute!
You can find more details about the run by clicking on the image above.
It is worth noting that healers in the raid used a total of 59 Flasks of Distilled Wisdom throughout the run since it gives you 2,000 Mana instantly on no cooldown.
You can watch the run over on Twitch.tv!
We recommend watching the VoD muted, as it contains strong language.
Achievements do not exist in WoW Classic, but that did not stop Hycran from becoming the first person to "earn" Insane in the Membrane. Congratulations!
He had to make approximately 252 Darkmoon Faire decks to reach Exalted with the Darkmoon Faire.
Insane in the Membrane requires you to earn Exalted with the four Goblin factions (Booty Bay, Gadgetzan, Everlook, Ratchet), Ravenholdt, and the Darkmoon Faire. You will also need to hit Honored with Bloodsail Buccaneers. This also required you to become Exalted with Shen'dralar before Cataclysm.
Hycran is Exalted with every faction, except for Cenarion Circle, which you can get for free doing AQ20 and Brood of Nozdormu earned for free doing AQ40.
He does not think it is worth spending 25 days killing Jazzrik in the Badlands to reach Exalted with Bloodsail Buccaneers.
After the sudden and tragic passing of well-known streamer and personality Byron "Reckful" Bernstein, in addition to basically the entire WoW community paying their respects on twitter, facebook etc, we now also have some really amazing reactions in-game as well. While there were plenty of wonderful threads on retail WoW as well, the response in Classic was special. Many, many servers have seen gatherings of players paying their respects in the Cathedral of Light in Stormwind, or in Grommash Hold in Orgrimmar.
It is truly heartwarming to see such kindness and respect, and somehow it seems even more fitting when it's presented in the game itself. We join everyone in the WoW community in mourning the loss of Reckful, and are very thankful and impressed by the dedication all of these players showed by honoring their fallen brother.
Many more people than presented here showed up, but these are just some of the images that were captured and still showcase the tremendous support shown.

Mankirk, Nethergarde Keep:
Shazzrah, Zandalari Tribe:
It didn't matter how many people actually attended, the thought itself is still truly an amazing one:

Here comes another addition to the "not a bug" list, as Blizzard have clarified that the extra elemental damage from weapons like Thunderfury or Warblade of Caer Darrow, while weird, is working as intended, aka like it did in Classic. Check out the detailed description explaining how it's actually logged as physical damage, but still affected by things like elemental protection potions:
Elemental Damage (source)
We wanted to take a moment to clarify that the extra elemental damage from weapons such as Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker, Iceblade Hacker, and Warblade of Caer Darrow are behaving as expected in WoW Classic and do not actually cause additional non-physical damage to the target. They do however still inflict extra damage in the amount specified in the tooltips. This is not noted in the combat log separately and is simply calculated as additional physical damage added to the weapon’s attack.
That being said, it has been noticed by players that when using an elemental barrier such as a nature/frost/fire protection potion or a shield that absorbs a specific element, you will see an “absorbed (X)” message in the combat log. This is also correct and working as expected, and such effects will reduce the damage of attacks by such weapons by the amount of extra elemental damage specified in the weapon tooltip.
Ultimately the way these weapons function is a very old quirk/bug with how original World of Warcraft was built. While definitely strange and unintuitive, these weapons are behaving exactly as they did in the original game and we have no intention of changing them to behave differently in WoW Classic.
I hope this helps provide some clarity around this very odd quirk inherent to these types of weapons!
With the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj event coming up in Phase 5 later this month, there's a lot more focus on realm transfers, as entire groups/guilds might be going for that Scarab Lord title and mount on a low pop server. Today we have some clarifications from Blizzard on how realm transfers are going to work, specifically for those chasing the Scarab Lord title, noting that you cannot get the rewards from finishing the quest line for 90 days after transferring.
Realm Transfers (source)
With the upcoming Ahn’Qiraj event in WoW Classic, we’ve seen players discussing transferring to a different server to become the Scarab Lord. We’d like to clarify that there is a 90-day period following a character transfer, during which a player is prevented from opening the gates and obtaining the mount.
If you transfer to another realm, you will still be able to complete the quest within 90 days of the transfer, however, you will not receive the rewards associated with being the first to turn it in. We want to allow players to transfer, but that should be so they can play with their friends, not disrupt another realm’s Scepter race.
We hope this clears up the concern.
