  • The following new affixes can appear starting at Keystone Level 4.
    • SpitefulSpiteful
      • “Fiends rise from the corpses of non-boss enemies and pursue random players.”
    • InspiringInspiring
      • “Some non-boss enemies have an inspiring presence that strengthens their allies.”
  • The following new affixes can appear starting at Keystone Level 7.
    • StormingStorming
      • “While in combat, enemies periodically summon damaging whirlwinds.”
  • On the Torghast (Max Level) realm, the Keystone Vendor has been updated to offer these new affixes for testing.

We look forward to hearing about your experiences with these new affixes!

Never really had issues with teeming but did have slight issues with skittish during BFA when I was tanking.  Only solution I found to counteract this was switching to Soul Bomb or stick with Gluttony and stack a few pieces of Corruption gear that had Twilight Devastation while telling my team to use a personal cd if needed and to please run to me if they have threat for the mob to be cleaved down with the trash pack.  Some dungeons I would use add priority to keep chain pulling to keep at pace with the timer and group composition. 

But like someone mentioned before these new affixes are recycle forms from Season 3 of Beguiling with the exception of Spiteful being a mini version of Reaping from Season 2.  All in all I'm rather intrigued on how to navigate these in the new dungeons once Season 1 goes live.

Blizzard should just remove "negative" affixes all together, and implement positive buffs to dungeon runs. Torghast shows that it's always more fun to interact and play around with things that make you stronger rather than stand in your way. (Of course they need to buff the scaling on the damage and health by a mile if that would be the case)

Teeming has been the prime example for affixes being annoying, because it's the only one that isn't. For many players (mostly dds) it's seen as a positive affix among all affixes, since you can deal more aoe damage, woohoo ?

Hate to burst your bubble, but there are no "positive" affixes, every time there is, some role that needs to deal it, and DPS so far seem to have it easiest - especially pug ones that are generally only capable of slamming their faces into keyboards, so mostly healers and, on ocassion, tanks have to salvage it.

No tank is madly happy to have a 3rd fortified sea-witch in a pack for TD, dealing with the entire pull past 2nd boss in KR, or healer unable to contribute damage because there are 5 dervishes to deal with in ToS while DPS go about "woohoo".

Well you are just assumimg that with positive affixes, it suddenly means "big pulls all the way", which i would describe as degenerate play. But i mentioned scaling the dungeons waaay higher, so that the mobs stay dangerous. But with positive affixes, the players would be impacted rather than the dungeon mobs, so they can keep them dangerous and the mechanics of mobs themselves would be clearer, and more important.

could make interactive cool new affixes to mix it up a bit ?

M+ affixes aren't there just to increase the difficulty. They also change the way the dungeon plays out. If we didn't have them, the only challenge in M+ would be in season 1 when everyone's learning the dungeons. After that we'd just blast through them in the exact same way for 2 years until next expansion. Granted, you can learn the affix rotation and have a route and tactic for every affix combo but it still adds some variety week in week out.

In any case, be it positive or negative affixes, if they encourage us to explore the dungeons, take different routes, pull different packs of mobs and whatnot, I'm all up for them.

      Blizzard has posted development notes for Patch 9.2.7. The latest update brings region-wide commodities to the Auction House while armor and weapons will remain realm-specific. The patch also adds a new trade channel for services.
      (Source)
      World of Warcraft Version 9.2.7 PTR
      AUCTION HOUSE UPDATE: REGION-WIDE COMMODITIES
      Auction Houses across all realms on a given region will now share commodity listings (gems, herbs, flasks, consumables, etc.). Items that aren’t commodities –- like armor and weapons –- will continue to be realm-specific. Developers’ note: The Auction House you know and use today should look and feel exactly the same; it’ll just have way more buyers and sellers available to you for commodities. We’d love for players to hop on the PTR, copy over their characters, and help us test the Auction House across the entire PTR region. We might schedule a specific time in a few weeks for everyone to hop on at the same time to help stress it, details tbd. USER INTERFACE AND ACCESSIBILITY
      A new chat channel for searching or advertisement of services like raiding, dungeons, or PvP activities has been added: Trade (Services). Developers’ note: The trade channel that’s been in the game for 18 years will continue to exist, but we wanted to add a new channel to direct messages about the request and advertisement of services like raiding, dungeons, or PvP activities. If you’re looking to buy or sell these kind of services, this is the channel for you! If you’re not interested in those, you can leave the channel and avoid the noise, or move it into its own chat tab. We believe that with this new distinction, you’ll be able to keep Trade chat for the traditional buying and selling of items and professions, and not other chatter.

      Ahead of the Curve and Cutting Edge achievements for the current will be removed when Season 3 ends on August 1. More nerfs to Sepulcher end bosses are also planned in the coming weeks.
      (Source)
      Can you provide an update on the end of Season 3 Raiding? Will AOTC be going away, and if so when will this take place.
      Yes, we intend to close the current raiding tier for achievements such as Ahead of the Curve with the weekly reset the week of August 2.
      We have additional tuning in the works, with a focus on the end encounters of Sepulcher. We know that currently far fewer guilds are on track to get Cutting Edge in particular than in past tiers and we want to address that in the coming weeks, before Season 3 ends.

      A true blast from the past in the form of a screenshot appeared on Reddit! It shows WoW during its early development stage.
      You can see a Warrior fighting against a ghoul in an opened World of Warcraft window. Judging by the simple user interface, we may be looking at the early stages of Alpha.

      For comparison, here's the new UI coming in Dragonflight. It's incredible how the game has improved over time in all aspects.
