n patch 10.0.7, we made changes to several classes to address issues we saw with itemization or talent trees. Game data since the patch went live has shown us that certain specs are overperforming, so with scheduled weekly maintenance on March 29, we’ll make the changes below.



  • Frost
    • All ability damage reduced by 3%.


  • Beast Mastery
    • Kill Command damage reduced by 10%.
  • Marksmanship
    • All ability and pet damage reduced by 4%.
  • Survival
    • Mongoose Bite damage reduced by 10%. This does not affect PvP Combat.


  • Developers’ notes: We’re modifying the output of Grimoire of Sacrifice to bring it in line with the output of Warlock demons. At the end of the day Warlock is a pet-centric class and while we want there to be an option to opt-out of your pet, we don’t want it to always be the clear answer.
  • Wrathful Minion now increases the damage of Grimoire of Sacrifice by 10% (was 15%).
  • Demonic Inspiration now increases the damage of Grimoire of Sacrifice by 10% (was 15%).
  • Grimoire of Sacrifice damage reduced by 15%.
  • Affliction
    • Developers’ notes: With the removal of less impactful talents in both their class and specialization trees, Affliction received a lot of additional damage options that have increased their damage beyond what was intended. We’re making these adjustments to bring them in line with other damage dealers.
    • Damage done by spells and abilities reduced by 2%.
    • Darkglare damage reduced by 20%.
  • Demonology
    • Developers’ notes: We’re targeting Demonology’s multi-target profile with these adjustments to bring them closer to other damage dealers. We will continue to watch both single-target and multi-target performance, along with the output of new talents and adjustments delivered in 10.0.7, and make further adjustments down the road if needed.
    • Demonic Strength now increases the damage of Felstorm by 300% (was 400%).
    • Dreadbite damage reduced by 10%.



  • Crusader’s Reprieve healing reduced by 50% in PvP combat.
  • Protection
    • Judgment of Light healing reduced by 35% for Protection Paladins in PvP Combat.
  • Retribution
    • Developers’ notes: Retribution Paladins have been heavily overperforming in PvP with their recent 10.0.7 changes. We’re primarily targeting their burst damage, passive survivability, and PvP talents that we feel are contributing too much overall damage.
    • Judgment of Light healing reduced by 35% for Retribution Paladins in PvP combat.
    • Inquisitor’s Ire effectiveness reduced by 40% in PvP combat.
    • Fading Light effectiveness reduced by 75% for Retribution Paladins in PvP combat.
    • Justicar’s Vengeance now deals 15% additional damage to stunned targets in PvP combat.
    • Justicar’s Vengeance healing reduced by 50% in PvP combat.
    • Blessing of Dawn effectiveness reduced by 25% for Retribution Paladins in PvP combat.
    • Divine Arbiter direct damage reduced by 25% in PvP combat.
    • Vanguard of Justice effectiveness reduced by 25% in PvP combat.
    • Empyrean Legacy increases the damage of Divine Storm by 15% in PvP combat (was 25%).
    • Luminescence (PvP Talent) now increases damage and healing by 2% (was 4%).
    • Lawbringer (PvP Talent) now deals 2% of maximum health (was 4%).
    • Fixed an issue that caused Avenging Wrath’s 75% PvP multiplier to not function for Retribution Paladins.

Okay, that's some .. Odd choices. Didn't half of these specs only start to perform well after the 0.7 patch?

      The Tusks of Mannoroth cosmetic cannot be learned by non-plate wearers in MoP Remix. Find out what Blizzard had to say about the issue.
      Starting with the War Within pre-patch, you can easily collect transmog for other classes, but since MoP Remix gear will be gone and the inventory wiped when the limited-time event ends, many players were left wondering what's going to happen with their Tusks of Mannoroth cosmetic when the characters are ported over to retail.
      It turns out Blizzard will fix the item soon, but have no ETA on when that will happen.
      Common Problems
      I purchased the Tusks tranmog item on my shaman and cannot use it

      This issue is currently planned to be fixed in a future patch. While Customer Support cannot provide the release date of future patches, please keep an eye on our official blogs and social media channels for announcements from our developers.
      If you discover a new issue, please submit a new Bug report.

      There's been many a hyperspawn in Pandaria, granting players with different amount of Bronze per hour. Everyone's been swarming every new potential spot while Blizzard scrambles to shut them all down as fast as possible. The original hyperspawn sin, the frog farm, even elicited a round of nerfs to a whole lot of people, but it also brought in a specific piece of compensation, which made a certain other farm pretty great.
      With all the post-frog changes, it turns out that leveling alts could be the next best Bronze farm, as Blizzard keep shutting every other one down. The biggest change came in the form of three new quests at levels 50, 60 and 70, granting 3,000, 7,000 and 30,000 of the currency. Added to the approximately 30-ish thousand Bronze players gather up through leveling, that comes out to 70,000 Bronze per alt.
      But the Bronze quests weren't the only things buffed since the frog apocalypse, as XP gains and level scaling has also been adjusted.
      Hotfixes (Source)
      Enemy power scaling, particularly in group content, has been adjusted to be less aggressive. This is particularly applicable in the player level 40 - 70 range, before players have been able to power up their cloak, upgrade their gems, and increase their item level. The first-time bonus for queueing each LFR wing will grant a Thread of Experience in addition to the existing Lesser Bronze Cache. Developers’ notes: This should improve LFR as a viable choice for leveling main characters and alts, without players feeling like they need to grind the same LFR wing repeatedly. We have added bonus experience to each boss in normal dungeons and scenarios so they are a viable alternative to questing. Bonus experience has also been adding to the last boss of Heroic Scenarios. Heroic dungeon bosses will continue to drop bonus experience. For everyone that did not take advantage of the frog farming, we’re providing three additional quests with large Bronze rewards for reaching levels 50, 60, and 70. These quests will become available from Momentus the item upgrader at the Jade Forest Infinite Bazaar. These milestone quests will grant characters an additional 3,000, 7,000, and 30,000 Bronze, respectively. What this now means is that via regular dungeon spamming (Normal and Heroic), as well as the first-time Look for Raid XP bonuses for each raid, you can get to level 70 pretty quickly, with some players getting it done in around 5 hours! Now sure, these fast leveling times include the cloak XP bonus, but that's relatively easy to get on at least one character, and you probably already have it if you've been playing. The Infinite Growth II, III and IV quests pop up at the Jade Forest Bazaar and are marked on your map with the new purple quest marker, so you can't miss them.
      There's nothing particularly special here, it really is just spamming dungeons and running the LFR for the first clear bonuses when the queue pops. You can also do regular quests or the daily quests, as the give a pretty solid chunk of XP, and you can do those while you wait for the LFR queue as well.
      So if you're taking 5 hours to level an alt, with a presumed 30K Bronze while leveling and the 40K from quests, that comes in at around 14K an hour. Granted that's nowhere near the 60K an hour from the original frogs, but it's not that extremely far away from the new hyperspawns. Plus it's not infinite boring and you get a bunch of level 70 chars as a bonus!  There probably are a few more hyperspawn farms available that are significantly better, but since those keep popping up and being knocked down by Blizzard, this seems a lot more stable, especially long-term.

      Considering leveling alts fast was the primary reason to even play Remix for a lot of players, this is a real win-win. As many players commented, it seems the best way to farm Bronze is... to play MoP Remix as intended!

      Proving Grounds in MoP Remix are easy to complete and reward you with 3 prestigious titles!
      You're probably asking why the hell would someone want to complete Proving Grounds in MoP Remix. Well, for one, there are 3 achievements (1 per role) that award titles and they are account-wide, so if you did not complete them on live servers yet, you can do that in MoP Remix and it will be much simpler.
      Let's break down the achievements and titles:
      Proving Yourself: Endless Tank (Wave 30) - Rewards "the Proven Defender" title. Proving Yourself: Endless Healer (Wave 30) - Rewards "the Proven Healer" title. Proving Yourself: Endless Damage (Wave 30) - Rewards "the Proven Assailant" title.  
      To enter the Proving Grounds, speak with Trial Master Rotun inside the Temple of the White Tiger in Kun-Lai Summit in MoP Remix.

      Discover the steps to get the Theramore Tabard and the Mini-Mana Bomb toy in the MoP Remix event!
      Players have discovered that the Theramore Tabard and Mini Mana Bomb toy are available in the MoP Remix event. However, these items cannot be purchased from vendors.
      To obtain them, you need a Level 35 character and must complete the "Theramore's Fall" scenario. After completing the scenario, the toy or tabard will be mailed to you, depending on your faction.
      Unfortunately, there's currently a bug where characters who reach Level 36 during the scenario won't receive the rewards.
      To avoid reaching Level 36 inside the scenario, simply unequip your cloak to remove the XP buff. This will make you weaker, but it ensures you earn the rewards.
      Hopefully, Blizzard will soon release a hotfix to address this issue.
