      Blizzard just announced an upcoming tuning pass for 3 bosses in Castle Nathria and several changes to Sanguine Depths! 
      Raid and Dungeon (source)
      We’re working on a slate of adjustments to several encounters that we intend to enact with scheduled weekly maintenance (early a.m. PST on March 2 in this region). Here are the planned changes:
      Dungeons and Raids
      Castle Nathria Lady Inerva Darkvein Healers are now chosen as a last resort target of Shared Suffering and Concentrate Anima on Raid Finder, Normal, and Heroic difficulties. The ambient damage of Loose Anima for open containers has been reduced on Raid Finder, Normal, and Heroic difficulties. Targets of Shared Suffering no longer take damage from the beams they are wearing on Raid Finder, Normal, and Heroic difficulties. Passing through the opposite edge will continue to damage targeted players. Hungering Destroyer Health reduced by 5% on Mythic difficulty. Reduced the damage players wearing Gluttonous Miasma take by 10% on Mythic difficulty. The damage increase of Essence Sap has been reduced by 20% per stack. Expunge now shows up in the combat log when it is applied to players. Volatile Ejection now shows up as a debuff when a player is targeted with this spell. Sun King’s Salvation Increased the amount of healing Essence Overflow heals Kael’thas to 2.5% of his maximum health on all difficulties (was 2%). The tooltip will be updated to reflect the change in a future hotfix or patch. Increased the healing done bonus from Sinfall Boon to 100% per application on Mythic difficulty (was 50%). Reduced the strength of the Cloak of Flames damage shield on Shade of Kael’thas by 10% on Mythic difficulty. Sanguine Depths Wicked Oppressor’s Wrack Soul cast time increased to 2 seconds (was 1.5 seconds) and is cast less frequently. Regal Mistdancer’s Echoing Thrust damage reduced by 20% and is cast less frequently. General Kaal’s health reduced by 10% during the gauntlet event. Thank you very much for your feedback!

      It seems it's the week of leveling tricks, as we now have a very fast method on our hands, after yesterday's very low-effort one. Unlike that one, however, this one is definitely leaning on the exploit side of things, so keep that in mind.
      Leavaris came across a bit of an anomaly over in Silithus, as the Hive'Zora location is home to some weird scaling, XP-wise. The mobs seem to have their XP values in a twist, but you need employ a little trickery first via Chromie Time and Party Sync. The mobs will now grant crazy amount of experience and could get you from 50-60 in under 2 hours, as Leavaris claims! We haven't tested this one out, but it seems to be working quite well in the video. There's a solid possibility that this might be considered an exploit, so keep that in mind if you plan to try it.
      Party Sync has been a little weird XP-whise in general, but this one will (and should) get fixed pretty soon.

      Here come two more weeks of Mythic+ logs, with the class tuning changes having settled in. This week saw a +26 get taken down and not that many changes in the rankings since last time, as the meta seems to have very much settled in, so we'll be looking at the DPS, tanks and healers in all keys and some higher ones, as usual.
      Note: The logs are based on POINTS (as noted in each image), and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We'll also be switching back to the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity.
      In the 95th percentile we see some movement: unlike in raids, Mythic+ players haven't utilized the new Frost Mage buffs as much and even though the spec has jumped up a little, it's nowhere near the huge spike we've seen in Nathria. As for the all percentiles chart, we do have a new No.1, as Outlaw has taken Fire down a notch.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.

      Healer Specs
      Not many changes to healers, as the rankings are pretty much the same as a couple weeks ago:

      Tank Specs
      The tank meta seems very much set, as there haven't been any changes to the rankings for a long time now, as Vengeance dominates all:

      High Keys
      And now it's on to the high-end, as we take a look at the +15 and +20 all percentile data for DPS roles, where things look a lot different week-to-week every time, as there's much less data to work with. Of note this time around is the disappearance of Assassination from +20ies, as they were on top for quite a while and are now at the very bottom. The +15s are much more stable due to many more runs, and the big change since a few weeks ago is that Fury dropped down a little, as the hype over the buffs seems to have died down a little and Fire/Windwalker returned to their 2nd and 3rd places.

      The maker of the awesome Castle Pineapplia is back with a new browser game, but this one focuses on your dodging specific abilities!
      The Pineapple Training Grounds lets you choose between Sire Denathrius' Massacre, Shriekwing's Echoing Screech and one Mythic+ mechanic, Dark Bolt from the Ventunax encounter in Spires of Ascension. You'll obviously be controlling the pineapple again and dodging the mechanics to get you ready for when you run into them in actual WoW:


      That is one dead pineapple.
      Here are some comments from the creator:
      It's definitely worth a try, especially on Insane difficulty, so check it out here.

      If you have a ton of alts you want to try out and don't feel like putting in too much effort, here's a not too slow and very easy way to get from 50 to 60!
      MoffiSlayer found a spot in Ardenweald where you can easily 3-button chill farm player XP via a pet battle, but you might need the Iron Starlette and some pet bandages. It's probably doable with  other pets as well, but this one gets the job done in 2 rounds, so it's the optimal choice. It's a pretty good option if you have something else to do/watch a show or movie, or even at work as some players noted (via remote desktop tools and similar), as it's a very brainless side-activity.   This will earn you about 195K XP per hour, so you'll need about 14-15 hours to get from 50 to 60, which actually isn't that bad at all considering the regular way will probably take about 10 for a relatively chill playthrough, except that requires actual focus.  The pet battle is located in Ardenweald at 40, 64.4.
