Recommended Posts

The 15-year WoW anniversary event starts this week aka today (Tuesday) in the Americas and tomorrow/Thursday in the EU and Asia, respectively. This means we can get some gifts and start reliving some epic BC, WotLK and Cata boss encounters with the Memories of Azeroth event, leading us straight into Deathwing's arms. Or well, wings. Look, you get the Deathwing mount when you complete the event, ok?

We also get to experience Alterac Valley once more and get even more mounts there, with the Stormpike Battle Ram on the Alliance side and the Frostwolf Snarler for Horde. There's also rewards that don't have to do anything for, namely Lil'Nefarian and some XP and rep gain boosters, fireworks and a new Heaarthstone that takes us to the Cavers of Time! 

And we'll have plenty of time to get all this done, as the event lasts until January!

    This November marks the 15th anniversary of World of Warcraft, and we have some special things planned to commemorate the occasion.

    When: November 5, 2019 – January 7, 2020 (The Americas)
    November 6, 2019 – January 8, 2020 (Europe)
    November 7, 2019 – January 9, 2020 (Asia)

    New Raids: Memories of Azeroth

    Chromie has separated the strands of time, allowing you to go back and relive epic raid encounters from Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, and Cataclysm. Each of these limited-time raids will feature three iconic bosses, and they’ll be available as their own wings through the Raid Finder.

    To enter the raid, you need a minimum item level of 380. Players who complete all three wings will receive the achievement Memories of Fel, Frost and Fire which grants the Obsidian Worldbreaker, a Black Dragonflight mount inspired by Deathwing.

    Return to Alterac Valley of Olde

    Run down your enemies, raze their fortifications, and exchange the tokens you loot from their corpses to summon mighty reinforcements in Korrak’s Revenge, a throwback Battleground inspired by the earliest days of Alterac Valley.

    Players who participate in Korrak’s Revenge and complete the Alterac Valley of Olde achievement can earn two new mounts: the Stormpike Battle Ram (Alliance) and the Frostwolf Snarler (Horde).

    Anniversary Gift

    Get ready to celebrate 15 years of World of Warcraft in style! Everyone who logs in during the event period will receive an Anniversary Gift in the mail, which includes a Lil’ Nefarian battle pet, a Celebration Package that increases experience and reputation gains throughout the event, a reusable firework that can be used for the duration of the event, an item that teleports you to the Caverns of Time (usable only during the event), and other in-game goodies.

    Recruit A Friend Rewards
    This pocket-sized Lord of Blackrock is too small to call out any classes, but he can still dish up a good insult.

    These events and rewards are available to experience this week in all regions. We’re looking forward to celebrating 15 epic years with you!

    Check out our previews for the event here:

    That feeling when you contemplate re-subbing to get the mount and achievement then unsub... but then realize this "free mount" essentially becomes a $20 store mount 🤣

    I got the mount. Let me use it for a few hours now it’s saying I have not collected the mount. But when I go to my achievements I’ve still got the achievement completed. Why is that

        We have two Corruption fixes today, as the Gushing Wound nerf has finally arrived! There's also a fix for Ineffable Corruption and its effect on lockout times for interrupted spell schools.
        June 2 (source)
        Items and Rewards
        Corrupted Items Gushing Wound (Corruption Effect) damage over time effect has been reduced by 35%. Developer’s note: While we try to avoid changes like this outside of regular balance patch intervals, the changes we've made to the Corruption system to make Corruption more targetable and attainable risks turning a rare but powerful Corruption into the optimal choice in nearly every situation. With this reduction in damage, Gushing Wound will remain reasonably powerful in all situations, but will no longer be the most efficient source of damage per Corruption in all situations. Fixed a bug that caused the lockout time of interrupted spell schools to increase when the Ineffable Truth Corruption effect ends.

        Update: The second theory has been debunked, as it's predicted items did not show up in today's list!
        We have some possibly good news for all the people still chasing their perfect Corruption setup (which would be most players everywhere), as two separate theories have come up predicting which Corruptions will appear at what time in MOTHER's shop. Both theories are based on the Corruptions that we've seen so far, so neither has the full info for all Corruptions yet and both predict entries in different time frames, so their predictions don't conflict with each other.
        First off we have Dorovon, from Big Dumb Guild, who has actually datamined some hotfix data and come up with a possible pattern there, with cycles of linked Corruptions repeating. Now, this data might not actually be linked to the vendor at all, but we can't know that yet. From that base, Shiftmage created this spreadsheet which tracks all the upcoming Corruptions, but its first prediction comes on July 16th, as that's when the supposed "cycle" will start repeating.


        An additional problem here is that even if the data is linked to the vendor, it might simply randomize the order once it comes to the cycle reset point. We won't know whether any of this is reliable until June 16th, when the first prediction will either come true or not. You can check out the spreadsheet here for more details, and read a more detailed analysis of the datamining itself here.
        *The below theory has been proved to be incorrect*
        The second theory is much simpler and we'll find out whether it's correct a whole lot sooner - tomorrow on the next reset, in fact! Limit's Imfiredup has created a much more direct prediction, potentially figuring out the pattern for (only) the stat-based Corruptions.

        We simply keep in mind we're now on cycle 4, which would indicate the next reset, coming tomorrow, should have Expedient 1 and Versatile 2, so it won't take long to see if this is correct. Just so it's easier to keep track, cycle 5 would be (US) Tuesday's reset, aka 02.06, 6 would be Friday 05.06, 7 would be Tuesday 09.06 and cycle 8 would be Friday 12.06.
        You can check out how Imfiredup came to these number in the clip below:


        Now, obviously both of these have a lot going against them, and it's all very speculative at this point, but it'll be pretty exciting to see if either of them managed to get it right. Perhaps Blizzard will even see the interest players have in actually knowing when which Corruption will appear and share the correct schedule themselves?

        Dredwing mounts are bat-like creatures that are probably native to Revendreth given that the whole zone has a vampire vibe to it. Check out our preview of the mounts for more details.
        The mount comes in four colors: green, purple, red, and stone.
        Silvertip Dredwing

        PH Purple Dredwing

        Horrid Brood Dredwing
        Harika the Horrid terrorized the denizens of the Forest Ward yet with her demise her broodlings under proper direction can now take this horror to denizens farther afield.

        PH White Dredwing
