The Shadowlands 9.2.7 update arrives to World of Warcraft on August 16!


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.

THE AUCTION HOUSE JOINS THE WOW COMPANION APP

  • Players can now do the following from the WoW Companion App:
    • Browse and view current auctions
    • Bid and buyout auctions
    • Search for auctions
    • Add and remove items from your Favorites list
    • View and cancel your listed auctions
    • Developers' note:  We are very pleased to be able to bring the Auction House back as a part of the WoW Companion App. The new app update provides a way for players to make purchases, view listings, and more. Due to our desire to provide an Auction House experience in a more immediate timeframe we have excluded listing items for sale. While we understand selling items is a much-loved part of the past feature from the previous Remote Auction House, we wanted to provide access to many of the features regularly used by players as quickly as we could with an eye on potential additions to the app in the future. We intend to make improvements as we evaluate player usage, risk, and the developmental load in implementing tech frameworks to support future updates. Learn more about this update on our latest post.

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.

I wonder if the likes of you ever learn that demand creates supply. 
Fighting it is pointless, might as well try and incorporate it.

They could stop it.

They'd have to be a lot more heavy handed than they are now to do it though.

I personally don't see the point in getting boosted. I'd rather just play the game, but I couldn't care less if others do it. From a PVE standpoint, I don't see how others getting boosted affects you at all.

Not really mutually exclusive to what I am saying though is it? I can still have a negative opinion on something that exists, and will probably exist until WoW is dead, even if as a business standpoint (which, as a player, I could frankly care less about) it is a positive at Blizzard.

I can understand the perspective but also feel that any accomplishment is utterly diminished when someone can spend 17 quid to achieve any semi-challenging content in the game, especially now that they're adding in-game advertising for said thing.

At the end of the day I've got my keystone master, and will get the slime cat mount next reset, and will unsub less than 1 month into a season and forget about the game until Dragonflight because this is how I feel about spending time and money on a game that caters to P2W services. Especially when it shamelessly advertises these services by adding channels for it.

      Looking back at the supposed internal spreadsheet, all the release dates have been 100% accurate. Will we see the Dragonflight pre-patch launching in late October?
      The internal document correctly predicted the launch date of Wrath Classic, Dragonflight, and even Overwatch 2. There is little reason to believe that the Dragonflight pre-patch will not be released on October 25, 2022. 

      The Dragonflight pre-patch contains all game updates you currently see on the Beta besides new content, except for the Forbidden Reach and Dracthyr Evokers, which will finally be available for play.
      It also comes with a pre-patch event that revolves around defeating elemental bosses that spawn in Azeroth each week for catch-up gear, leading to the expansion's launch on November 28, 2022.
      We're likely just 24 days away from the pre-patch; what are you most excited about?

      Blizzard have detailed changes coming to Enhancement Shaman's Windfury totem with the next Beta build.
      Enhancement (Source)
      Hi Enhancement Shaman,
      A change is coming next week to how Windfury Totem works. These changes have no impact on the Windfury Weapon imbue, nothing is changing with how that works.
      For some quick context, in Shadowlands, Windfury Totem can only activate from main-hand auto-attacks, and causes a main-hand auto-attack swing when it activates.
      The next build you receive should have Windfury Totem changed to work this way:
      Main-hand auto attack interaction is unchanged, except for the miss note below. Off-hand attacks can proc an off-hand Windfury attack. This is an actual real “auto attack”, which means things like Flametongue Weapon, or whatever other effects may activate from off-hand attacks, can now potentially happen from this bonus attack. Windfury Totem extra attacks can no longer miss. This has very little impact on 2h users, as an Arms Warrior or Retribution Paladin almost never see a miss in their combat log, however dual-wield users have a high miss chance. In Shadowlands, this miss chance both applies to the chance to get the Windfury Totem’s extra attack, and the extra attack itself can then miss. Targets can still dodge or parry these attacks, they are just no longer able to miss. Bonus bug fix: Enhancement Shaman who are under the effects of Ascendance can now benefit from Windfury Totem if they are auto-attacking from outside of melee range range with Windlash. We will be monitoring any unintended side effects from this change, but this should help make Windfury Totem more valuable to more specs within the game.

      Blizzard have detailed all the Season 1 Dragonflight tier set bonuses, the various ways players can acquire them and more! We hear about the reasoning behind the designs (which will be more simplistic than the 9.2 sets), their impact on talent tree choices, the Inspiration Catalyst and more, so let's take a look.
      Class Tier Set Bonuses (Source)
      We’re excited to share the bonuses you’ll discover on Class Sets in Dragonflight. To add to the excitement, these bonuses will be playable in the next beta build!
      Dragonflight Class Set Armor Design
      We set a few goals for this round of Class Sets. First and foremost, these Class Set bonuses are not as complex as the effects on 9.2 Class Sets. The new talent trees have resulted in a lot of changes to classes in Dragonflight, and we want you all to be able to play those classes without Class Sets that significantly change your rotations or resource economies. This is not to say that we won’t make more complex or rotationally impactful Class Sets in the future. But you’ll find that these bonuses generally take a light touch on features like resource generation and cooldown manipulation.
      Another goal that came from wanting you all to have a chance to get familiar with Dragonflight’s new classes is that we want these Class Sets to have minimal impact on your talent choices. We want you to be able to play the way you choose in whatever content you prefer. As a result, they generally modify core class abilities or talents that are learned near the top of the tree. They may have synergies with talents further down the tree, but they shouldn’t make you feel like specific builds or capstone talents are “required.”
      Acquiring Set Armor in Dragonflight
      When Sets returned as a major endgame feature in 9.2, we debuted the Creation Catalyst as a tool for players to access and complete their sets, with the following goals:
      Players of all types should have access to powerful bonuses and fun appearances even if raiding is not their preferred method of engagement.
      New and returning players “catching up” should not have a monumental task to become ready to fight alongside friends.
      WoW can confidently carry the system forward as an evergreen feature for players to learn and understand intuitively.
      We think those goals were met. And while there’s room for improvement (both in understanding the means by which charges accrue, as well tuning prohibitive currency costs for alts), we’re happy to say that the Catalyst (which will be known as the Inspiration Catalyst in Dragonflight, and just the ‘Catalyst’ moving forward) will return to the Isles as a companion system to Class Sets for the foreseeable future.
      We’ll have more details to share on everything Catalyst-related in a future update, but for now it’s worth mentioning that we’re planning on keeping the unlock cadence the same to start – that is to say, the 6th week after the Mythic Raid becomes available in Dragonflight Season 1.
      Playing with These Bonuses and Providing Feedback
      To try these set bonuses in the Beta, log into an endgame realm and look for Setzertauren near the current PvP and professions vendors in Orgrimmar and Stormwind City. Please share bugs you find via the in-game bug reporting tool and your feedback about the bonuses in this thread.

      Blizzard have added more changes to Balance Druids after yesterday's raid testing, with ability redesigns, tuning and more.
      Balance (Source)
      Greetings, Balance Druids.
      After reviewing the performance of Balance Druids during yesterday’s raid testing, we developed a number of changes we’re implementing for today’s raid testing. If you encounter issues with your Talent Tree, please relog. Here are the changes:
      Lunar Shrapnel has been redesigned:
      Starfall’s stars have a chance to deal an additional 25% damage to nearby enemies when they damage an enemy afflicted by Moonfire. Deals reduced damage beyond 8 targets. Sundered Firmament’s Astral Power generation now correctly grants 25% of Fury of Elune’s Astral Power generation.
      Stellar Flare no longer generates Astral Power when granted by Stellar Inspiration.
      The chance for Shooting Stars to occur has been reduced.
      Wild Mushrooms no longer have nameplates and are now untargetable.
      Furor has been redesigned:
      Protector of the Pack [Feral/Balance/Guardian] - Store 10% of your damage, up to a specific amount. Your next Regrowth consumes all stored damage to increase its healing.
      Protector of the Pack [Restoration] - Store 10% of your effective healing, up to a specific amount. Your next Regrowth consumes all stored healing to increase its healing.
      Note: The tooltip of Protector of the Pack will appear broken in-game. We hope to have this fixed soon.
      Our main goal with these changes is to rein in the amount of Astral Power that Balance Druids are generating passively, as well as how much Astral Power is being credited to passives such as Primordial Arcanic Pulsar.
      Thank you for your continued feedback and suggestions! We’ll continue to watch class performance across the board and adjust whenever the need arises.
