I clearly didn't read the post explaining how server size is decided. If you're reading this and also confused why your medium pop server has a 4 hour queue at 1pm EST, look back a few posts and there's a breakdown about how they are dynamically sized relative to the most populated servers

      We haven't heard of Hycran for some time after he completed "Insane in the Membrane" in Classic, but now, the player's back with the Scarab Lord title and  21 Exalted reputations out of 22 on the Horde side.
      The final 22nd reputation is Bloodsail Buccaneers, and that would require 25 days of /played and repeatedly killing Jazzrik in Badlands, which is a single mob with a  5:30-8:30 variable respawn timer, so he decided not to pursue that reputation and ignore it.
      Here's what he had to say about it all.
      Anyway, huge congratulations to Hycran on this impressive feat!

      Blizzard have responded to player concerns about a bug with the Improved Weapon Totems Shaman talent, as it does not actually provite its attack power bonus to players in the Shaman's group. Blizzard clarified that even though this is exactly how the talent worked throughout all of Vanilla and was fixed in BC, they will be making a hotfix to it, as it's clearly not intended behavior.

      The other big thing to come from this blue post is the fact that they will be doing similar bug fixes for other issues that weren't necessarily addressed during Vanilla's time, but are clearly unintended, in an upcoming update.

      Hi All,
      I just wanted to chime in and provide a bit of context around this issue, and an update on our plans for it.
      The current behavior of the Improved Weapon Totems talent actually does match 1.12 and the reference client, and this talent behaved in this way for its entire existence during original World of Warcraft. It was, however, recorded as a bug shortly after it was introduced late in 2006 and was fixed very early in Burning Crusade. Since this is a clear bug that was fixed relatively quickly in the original game, we do currently have plans to fix this (as well as several other issues that were similarly bugged in original WoW but were clearly incorrect behavior) in an update coming in the near future.
      Hang in there, enhancement shamans!

      We've already seen the Alliance take down the deep breath queen with only 3 players, now it's time for the Horde to have some fun as well! It seems around 40-50 minutes is the sweetspot for downing Onyxia with 3 players, as all the kills took about that long. The Horde compositions are set for all three videos, as Warrior, Shaman, Hunter is the go-to for 3-manning the dragon lady, which is the faction swapped equivalent of the Alliance kill we covered, which just had Paladin instead. If you want to see further humiliation for basically WoW's first raid boss, you can check out 33 druids killing her, 33 hunters taking under a minute to down her or even naked raids taking her down.
      So let's take a look at 3 videos of 3-man Onyxia!

      The last one is also the most recent, and the title is misleading as it is not the Horde first kill, but it's still impressive!

      Update: the exploit has been hotfixed, as Blizzard announced in the August 28th notes.

      We have a new and major exploit in WoW Classic, which is allowing Mages to have a permanent 100% critical strike stat for as long as they don't die or log out. We're not going to get into the specifics of how to do this, except to say it involves the Combustion talent, which can be stacked up to 10 times for a 100% crit boost, even though it's more likely to be at 5-8 stacks, which is still plenty and can get you to a whole lot of crit.
      Blizzard will hopefully soon be made aware of this issue, as it's already been reported both on the forums and reddit, so a fix should appear quickly. While we won't link to the related threads to not spread the exploit, we will show you the results of it, in a rather painful Warsong Gulch match, as a Mage with 10 stacks runs amok. Warning for quite loud meme sounds.
      Hopefully this post helps bring this matter to Blizzard's attention, and if you manage to dig up the exploit on your own, don't use it - not only is it unfair and clearly not intended, but there might be bans for players abusing it as well.

      We're looking at a player who soloed Hogger in WoW Classic at Level 1 without dying. It took them 19 minutes and 22 seconds to do so! 
      Here is the VoD with Hogger at ~5% health left, so you can watch how the infamous Level 11 Elite gnoll got down!
