World of Warcraft Patch 10.10
“Ten Fast Ten Spurious”
April 1, 2023

Senior Chief Executive Lead Producer’s note: Please do not post this anywhere outside of our internal documentation where we have the full notes for the next dozen patches all completely written in advance. Please. I’m begging you to keep your fingers off the copy/paste keys. Please protect our perfect record of never leaking any content in advance.

Our Social Media Team has provided us with the following statement:

We’d like to thank the WoW development team for giving us the opportunity to take over all aspects of the creation and service of World of Warcraft. It’s been a blast being in control of literally everything, and we’d like to think we’ve done as good a job at making all decisions as the eSports Team did before us.

Features

New Raid: Drop Zone Maverick

It’s finally time to spend an entire raid Dragonriding. Yes, you read that correctly. Every centimeter of this raid zone is high in the air, and you’ve been called to come out of near retirement for one last mission in the sky. Take on dangerous enemies who aren’t ever really named or described, and if they shoot you down, just steal one of their dragons and keep going. Because you’re just that good!

New Dungeon Type: Meta-Dungeons

Introducing our very first arbitrarily restricted content! Only available to the top 8 specs in the game (as decided by random players running an addon), you’ll thrill to be lovingly guided by a completely silent group leader with an itchy kick-finger and a maniacal dedication to push-push-push like an obstetrician who has a plane to catch.

New Dungeon Type: Severed Instances

When you enter a Severed Instance Dungeon, another player takes over playing your character for the entirety of the dungeon, and you have no idea what they’re doing in there. When they’re done, you get your character back. Why do you have that scratch on your face now? Good luck figuring it out!

New Class: Food Reactionary

All races can now choose to be the new Food Reactionary class—a very common player you’re going to see everywhere you look. Food Reactionaries come in two specializations:

  • Cooktalkers, who watch food being made, and then react. Hopefully with lots of puns and wordplay. “More like ‘Hurricane Tortilla’.”
  • Chewtalkers, who taste food that’s surely cold by now, and then react. Hopefully with lots of groans and facial expressions. “I give it an 8.5 out of 10.”

Both Food Reactionary specs start out at level 1 without the ability to “go live” until they somehow convince 500 people to updoot their reactions. For some players, this will happen mysteriously fast, and for others, it will take months of grinding. Please do not lose sleep over this. We don’t have any control over the algorithm anymore.

Changes

  • The Swift Retribution talent no longer gives attack speed in PvP. Now when you kill another player, Swift Retribution causes your character to announce: “I’m the problem; it’s me”.
  • The player with the most gold is now required to purchase and operate General Chat.
  • Birb mounts can now talk, so you should mind what you say in front of them, and you should probably start wearing headphones when you watch TV.
  • All elf races are now eligible for the ‘Cotton-headed Ninny Muggins’ title.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the Gnome and Goblin starting experiences from being short enough.
  • Fixed yet another bug with self-driving Dragons mysteriously crashing into clearly visible obstacles. This should really be the last one.
  • Solo players are now provided with gold, a long stick, and access to an exclusive in-game florist so that you can buy yourself flowers and write your name in the sand.
  • In the PTR for this patch, dataminers will see some evidence of upcoming content: Dual Classes. The working titles for our first few Dual Classes are:
    • Paladin+Rogue - Blessing in Disguise
    • Shaman+Rogue - Element of Surprise
    • Warrior+Mage - Heroic Sheep
    • Paladin+Death Knight - Judge Dead
    • Druid+Hunter - Tame Yourself
    • Monk+Druid - Fists of Furry
    • Priest+Rogue - Holy Smokes
  • Tik Tok integration now automatically posts a video whenever your character falls from a lethal height, and those are going to get more views for you than any video of you talking, by a huge margin.
  • When doing the Community Feast in Azure Span, player-characters will now automatically respond to requests with “Yes, chef!” and yell “Corner!” and “Behind!” when walking behind another player.
    • Developers’ notes: We kindly request that players stop asking us why there’s treasure hidden in the soup containers. We don’t know why. It really didn’t make sense.

WoW Classic

New Profession: Weaving

By popular demand, we’re adding a new profession to WoW Classic. Weavers can level up through many original classic skills such as clamweaving and bearweaving to unlock powerful new abilities such as:

  • Meleeweaving
  • Realmweaving
  • Weaveweaving

At max level, Weaving becomes the only thing you do in combat. Please see the WoW Classic subreddit for further instructions.

Developer’s note: Due to excessive Clam farming for Weaving, we feel compelled to place a sanctuary effect on the Otter enclosure. :slightly_frowning_face:

A lot of the first ones read like "You hurt our feelings"-reactions, not really funny at all; Just sour.
I found the dual-class ones giggle-worthy, but not much else.
Don't put sour people in charge of jokes, I guess?

      Heirlooms in the War Within pre-patch will become soulbound if you enchant/equip them. A fix for the issue is coming when the expansion releases in Patch 11.0.2.
      (Source)
      Thanks for your feedback on Heirlooms! We originally planned to convert heirlooms to be Warbound until equipped to keep gear consistently using the new bind type. Upon further consideration, we’d like to continue to support the playstyle of setting up heirlooms with enchants and gems, then passing them to alts as needed. Given the 11.0.0 patch is today, we can’t easily fix this in the current patch, but it will be changed back in the upcoming 11.0.2 patch.
      While unfortunately your gear will become bound if you enchant/equip until the next patch, once it comes out, your heirloom gear will revert to Warbound, allowing you to again pass it between alts after equipping / enchanting it. We apologize for the temporary inconvenience and again, thank you so much for the feedback.

      Blizzard has posted an update on Mythic+ affix changes coming in this week's Beta build.
      A new Xal'atath's Bargain affix called Oblivion was added. It revolves around void crystals that can be absorbed by enemies or players. When players absorb them, they'll gain increased Mastery and Leech. Many affixes have been adjusted based on community feedback. (Source)
      Greetings, dungeoneers!
      Thank you all for your feedback on our new Mythic+ affix system. As we continue to review community responses for future adjustments, we’ve made updates in this week’s Beta.
      New Affix
      Continuing with the theme of Xal’atath’s Bargain, where players can harness powerful boons granted to dungeon enemies by the Harbinger, we’re adding a new affix to our Beta testing this week. Xal’atath’s Bargain: Oblivion
      While in combat, Xal’atath manifests crystals from the void that can be absorbed by enemies or players. These crystals spawn near enemies and move towards them until they are absorbed by players or collide with their target enemy. Players that absorb these void crystals gain increased Mastery and Leech. Affix Adjustments
      Voidbound is receiving adjustments to ease positioning requirements, and increase the value of defeating it to offset its damage requirement. Xal’atath’s Bargain: Voidbound
      Void Emissary now follows the Tank player after being summoned. Void Emissary’s health adjusted, and its health no longer scales with Fortified. Dark Prayer now grants 5% damage to all enemies in combat every 2 seconds, adjusted from 10% damage to all enemies in combat every 3 seconds. Dark Prayer now persists on enemy creatures if the channel finishes without the Void Emissary being defeated. Blessing from Beyond now grants 20% Cooldown Reduction in addition to 20% Critical Strike chance. We’ll see you in dungeons!

      Blizzard has posted an official preview of the updated character screens and services in the War Within pre-patch.
      (Source)

      With the release of the pre-expansion content update and Warbands, you’ll notice a difference in the character screen that will affect how you use  Character Transfers, Level Boosts, Race Changes, and Faction Changes on your characters.
      As the character selection screen shows all characters on the Battle.net account in one convenient location, some may show up as “gray” in the listing and are not available to select to use a Character Service on. To use a service for that character, you will need to select the realm that the character is from first by clicking on the “Realm” selection at the top of the screen and then apply the service to that character.
      You can also hover your mouse cursor over a character listed on the right side of the screen to see additional information including the realm it is currently on.
