Recommended Posts

Executive Producer Holly Longdale revealed Blizzard plans to deliver 6 content patches for Dragonflight in 2023 with Patch 10.0.5 hitting live servers early next year.

Patch 10.0.5 contains the Trading Post system, Poor-quality, and Common-quality items will be usable for transmog, and there will be some new content in the Primalist Tomorrow area.

Shortly after the update releases early next year, Patch 10.0.7 will hit Public Test Realms. The update contains a new quest campaign and repeatable world content in the Forbidden Reach. Human and Orc Heritage Armor will be introduced in this update.

Patch 10.1.5 and 10.1.7 are planned for the second half of the year, bringing the period between the second and third major updates.

It's been an inspiring month for the World of Warcraft team, as we've watched the world soar over the Dragon Isles, defend their Renowned allies from the Primalist threat, stay awhile and listen to tales of regret, craft inspired items, delve into dungeons, and make vast, vast quantities of soup.

But this tale is just beginning. A WoW expansion is not a single moment in time but a journey —we know that the merit of an expansion hinges on the sustained quality of its entire arc. Years after its release, Legion is remembered fondly as much for the 11-week content update cadence that served as the framework for its first year as it is for artifact weapons or Khadgar's brilliant dad jokes.

In planning out the road ahead following the release of Dragonflight, we've been mindful of the duty we owe our players to nurture this living world and, frankly, the need to do better than we have at times in the recent past. Our goal for Dragonflight is that there should always be something right around the corner, with a new update hitting our test realms shortly after the last one is live and in your hands.

In total, we are planning to deliver six content patches, fairly evenly spaced, over the course of 2023. This will include two major updates, the traditional pillars of our expansions—with new zones, raids, and seasonal rewards—but in between those, we want to keep expanding and evolving our world with new world events, updates to systems, and evergreen holidays, new dungeon experiences, new narrative chapters and cinematics that can serve as epilogues or as prologues to the next major step in the adventure, and, most importantly of all, more opportunities for us to respond to feedback and change or add elements based on what we're hearing is most needed by our players.

We recently announced the upcoming 10.0.5 content update, which should go live early next year, bringing with it the Trading Post system which allows players of all playstyles to earn a wide range of fun cosmetic rewards of their choice, as well as (finally!) allowing Poor-quality and Common-quality items to be acquired as transmog appearances— for those who prefer a somewhat humbler look—and a bit of new world content in the Primalist Tomorrow area.

Shortly after that is in your hands, we'll release the 10.0.7 content update onto our Public Test Realm. 10.0.7 will contain a new quest campaign and repeatable world content set in the Forbidden Reach, as the dracthyr return to their place of confinement (along with some unexpected guests) to learn more about their origins and their destiny. This content will set up the next major chapter of Dragonflight, and by its conclusion, it should be obvious what our next destination must be. Alongside this new content, we also plan to add questlines for Human and Orc cosmetic Heritage Armor, update some of our recurring holidays, and more.

There will also be a 10.1.5 and 10.1.7 content update coming in the second half of the year, bridging the period between our second and third major updates. We don't want there to be any specific formula for the size or shape of these updates, but the goal is simply more Warcraft: more story, more content, more rewards, more events, more tech improvements, with less downtime between them. I don't want to spoil everything, and I'm confident that there are at least a couple of surprises coming along the way that no one is expecting. And some of the details simply aren't decided yet, because your feedback will help shape exactly what we prioritize in these updates.

We're honored and humbled by the reception to Dragonflight so far, but this is only the start. From me and the entire development team, please accept our wishes for a happy, healthy, and peaceful New Year, and we can't wait for you to see everything we have in store for Azeroth in 2023.

What about class balance? As a 387 destro lock got beaten by a 377 marksman hunter after this weeks buffs/nerfs...

The main problem is the running... all the time, cant cast a thing in m+...

Balance is broken, it was never great, but this expansion seems almost as bad as Shadowlands in this aspect. Not to mention the weird way pvp gear works, as pvp item level only activates when engaged in pvp, not for entire of war mode (so you are either easier to kill for other players or doing world quests is going to be way slower with pvp gear).

I feel it! There’s still a good bit of specs that are just *filtered*, and what sucks is you can’t really play them for mplus content cause these bosses are busted as hell especially this week so if you’re not pumping mm hunter or rogue/dh dmg good luck friend!

      There is no Catalyst charge catch-up in Dragonflight. If you haven't completed last week's Catalyst quest, you will be only granted 1 charge this week upon completing the weekly.
      Many players wondered if they could catch up on Catalyst charges when they did not complete last week's Catalyst quest. Unfortunately, the answer here is no.
      Completing the weekly quest will only grant you 1 Catalyst charge this week. However, the good news is all your alts will be given a charge when you complete the weekly quest on your main and all characters on your account can contribute to the weekly quest progress. Every character can accumulate a maximum of 6 charges.
      This week, you can pick up the weekly Catalyst quest conveniently at the Great Vault in Valdrakken.

      Blizzard have posted some new known issues regarding the Trading Post, after having re-enabled refunds earlier today.
      Known Issues (Source)
      There are some issues that have affected the Trading Post and we wanted to provide an update along with where we are at in resolving them.
      We are aware of an issue where the completion credit for activities in the Traveler’s Log is occasionally resetting. We are actively working on addressing this issue and expect to have it resolved this week. Some players who complete the Traveler’s Log are not receiving the Ash’adar mount reward immediately in their chest at the Trading Post. We aim to have this resolved this week. Thank you for your patience.

      We have a big change to Mythic+ rating gains for +21 keys, Vault improvements, as well as class, quest, PvP changes and some Wrath Classic action as well in today's solid batch of hotfixes!
      February 1 (Source)
      Classes
      Evoker Fixed an issue where some Echoes could occasionally not be consumed by spell casts. Dungeons and Raids
      Vault of the Incarnates Fixed an issue preventing players from returning to other areas of the raid when returning to an instance with Broodkeeper Diurna already defeated. Kalecgos now summons a portal that will return players to the raid entrance after Broodkeeper Diurna has been defeated. Mythic+ Completing a Mythic 21 or higher dungeon, but exceeding the target time, now awards Mythic+ Rating as if the dungeon were a Mythic 20. Developers’ note: We award partial Mythic Rating credit for untimed dungeons (up to 40% over the target time) to recognize the skill and effort involved, and to encourage groups to stick together even if it seems like they’re going to fall a bit short of the timer. But at the very high end of the system, we’ve heard feedback that sometimes the surest path to further incremental Rating increases lies in seeking out keys a group may have no hope of clearing within the timer. We don’t want to change the way the system works for the vast majority of players who are working their way towards new Valor upgrade tiers, or cosmetic unlocks, but past the Mythic 20 threshold, there are no further tangible rewards other than the leaderboards and eventual end-of-season competition for the Thundering Hero title. The goal of this change is thus to ensure that the way to climb the leaderboards and earn a title meant for the best Mythic+ players in the world is by successfully completing dungeons within the allotted time, without negatively impacting the majority of players using the system. When this change takes effect, some players who are just barely at 2400 rating, with some of that rating coming from untimed 21+ keys, may drop below 2400 and need to re-earn that Rating in order to continue to upgrade new items to Rank 13. Items and Rewards
      Fixed an issue where certain item upgrade previews would display higher item levels than intended. Player versus Player
      Druid Feral Fixed an issue that could cause Leader of the Pack to not always apply correctly to the character while in Cat Form. Mage Frost Fixed an issue where Snowdrift would inconsistently be applied on elevated terrain. Quests
      Fixed an issue where Benthic gear could not be upgraded preventing the completion of “Create Your Own Strength.” System
      Fixed an issue that caused performance decreases when using certain addons.

        Wrath of the Lich King Classic
      Items and Rewards Stormjewels are now correctly unique-equippable. The Blood of the Old God trinket now has the correct attack power value trigger in its tooltip.

      Blizzard have announced that Trading Post items are now once again refundable (in the Americas, so it's unclear if the fix is also in for EU servers, as there has been no blue post there).
      Trading Post (Source)
      Update: Any items purchased from the Trading Post in the Americas are now be refundable. Items that were purchased during the non-refundable window can be refunded through the weekend to ensure affected players have the time to login and make any desired changes to their Trading Post purchases.

      We've looked at this week's Mythic+ Tier List based on the data from Subcreation.
      DISCLAIMER
      The following post is based on statistics provided by Subcreation, a website that gathers various Mythic+ data from live servers. Please note that the tier list is biased toward the top end because it only looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix and ignores keys below +16 and untimed runs.
      For the reasons mentioned above, the data presented here will always differ from the Mythic Tier Lists maintained by Petko.
      Data Reliability
      The data used in the post comes from Subcreation, a site maintained by Alcaras. Subcreation provides statistical analysis of Mythic+ dungeons, raids, and PvP in Shadowlands, and the data is provided via the Warcraft Logs API and Raider.io. If you'd like to support Subcreation, you can check out their Patreon.
      How the Data is Calculated
      The site looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix across all regions and examines their raider.io scores. For each dungeon and specialization, the site takes the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval of the top 100 runs for each specialization. The site then averages these lower bounds, one per dungeon, to get an overall average lower bound for each spec, which is finally used to create the tier list.
      The site takes the lower bounds of the 95% confidence interval calculated and then clusters them into 6 buckets using the Ckmeans algorithm. You can find more information by reading the site's FAQ.
      Tanks, Healers, Melee, and Ranged are all on the same scale. They're just shown separately for easier comparison across roles.
      Mythic+ Tier List for Dragonflight Season 1: Week #8
      The specs are ranked based on their lb_ci which stands for the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval. If a certain tier is missing, it's not occupied by any specialization.
      The following tier list is for this week's affixes: Tyrannical, Spiteful, Quaking, and Thundering.
      Tank Tier List
      Based on 1,600 runs, ranging in difficulty from +18 to +26.
