        Player versus Player

        • Classes
          • Death Knight
            • Frost
              • Developers’ notes: Frost Death Knights have been on our radar as underperforming, but still effective in the right situations. We’re reducing their burst damage alongside their game-wide damage increases with the goal of a healthier overall damage profile.
              • [With weekly restarts] Pillar of Frost now increases Strength by 15% in PvP Combat (was 25%).
            • Unholy
              • Developers’ notes: We’ve been monitoring our changes to Reanimation and have felt its damage is too high relative to how much control Death Knight’s have over enemies’ positioning.
              • [With weekly restarts] Reanimation’s explosion now deals 15% of the targets health in Shadow damage (was 20%).
              • [With weekly restarts] Allied players can no longer see the explosion ring visual for Reanimation.
              • [With weekly restarts] Reanimation’s stun debuff is now using the correct spell icon.
          • Demon Hunter
            • Havoc
              • Developers’ notes: Our goal with Rain from Above is for it to have situational offensive and defensive usage. With recent increases to its damage, we’re seeing it used for offense more often than intended, so we’re bringing its damage down.
              • [With weekly restarts] Rain from Above (PvP Talent) Fel Lance damage reduced to 8% of target’s max health (was 10%).
          • Mage
            • Fire
              • Fixed a bug that caused Ignite to deal increased damage when spread while using the Glass Cannon PvP Talent.
              • Fixed an issue that caused Glass Cannon to not increase the damage of Ignite.
            • Frost
              • Fixed an issue that caused Frost Bomb to not grant a charge of Flurry when dispelled.
          • Monk
            • [With weekly restarts] Strength of Spirit now increases the healing of Expel Harm by up to 50% based on your missing health in PvP Combat (was 100%).
            • Windwalker
              • Developers’ notes: Expel Harm’s healing was dramatically increased with Season 2. We’re happy with the base healing of the spell, but modifiers from Reverse Harm and Strength of Spirit are making it more powerful than we intended.
              • [With weekly restarts] Reverse Harm now increases the healing done by Expel Harm by 30% (was 60%).
          • Priest
            • Holy
              • Developers’ notes: Holy Priests have continued to underperform in PvP, so we’re buffing several of their primary healing spells.
              • [With weekly restarts] Renew healing increased by 34% in PvP Combat (was 22%).
              • [With weekly restarts] Flash Heal healing increased by 52% in PvP Combat (was 40%).
              • [With weekly restarts] Heal healing increased by 57% in PvP Combat (was 43%).
              • [With weekly restarts] Holy Word: Sanctify healing increased by 10% in PvP Combat.
              • [With weekly restarts] Holy Word: Serenity healing increased by 25% in PvP Combat (was 15%).
          • Shaman
            • Enhancement, Elemental
            • Developers’ notes: The healing contribution from Earth Shield for the hybrid Shaman specs is above our target in PvP after recent buffs to the spell.
            • [With weekly restarts] Earth Shield healing reduced by 30% in PvP Combat for Enhancement and Elemental.
          • Warlock
            • [With weekly restarts] Call Observer now has 8% of the Warlock’s health (down from 20%).
            • Destruction
              • Developers’ notes: Destruction’s sustained DPS in PvP especially with instant casts is higher than we’d like. We feel Chaos Bolt is in a good state, so we’re targeting other areas of the kit to bring down their DPS.
              • [With weekly restarts] Incinerate damage reduced by 10% in PvP Combat.
              • [With weekly restarts] Shadowburn damage increased by 45% in PvP Combat (was 65%).
          • Warrior
            • Arms
              • Developers’ notes: We feel Arms Warrior’s burst window has been more effective than we would like in PvP. We’re shifting their damage profile slightly to increase their consistent pressure but decrease their burst damage.
              • [With weekly restarts] Sharpen Blade cooldown increased to 30 seconds and duration decreased by 2 seconds.
              • [With weekly restarts] Skullsplitter now causes expired bleeds to deal 65% damage (was 100%) in PvP Combat.
              • [With weekly restarts] Deep Wounds damage increased by 15% in PvP Combat.
              • [With weekly restarts] Rend no longer deals 15% reduced damage in PvP Combat.
              • [With weekly restarts] Fueled by Violence now heals for 70% (was 85%) of damage dealt by Deep Wounds in PvP Combat.


        • Mining/Herbalism
        • The quest “Power Unified” should now only consume one Spark of Shadowflame upon completion and reward 2.


        • Fixed an issue where Fyrakk would not appear during Fyrakk Assaults despite the Fyrakk’s Fury bar being full.
        • Fixed an issue which could cause players in the to not get credit for killing Captain Reykal during “Researchers Under Fire.”
        • Fixed an issue causing the progress bar for “Glimmerfish Before It’s Gone” to not appear.
        • Fixed an error where the world event “Researchers Under Fire" was not switching objectives correctly on the weekly reset.
        • Developers’ notes: This fixes a bug that was preventing the Researchers Under Fire event from rotating to the Zaqali Ruin Investigation. It should now be taking players to the Molten Overflow for the remainder of this reset period. The event will rotate each week between the Titan Lockdown and Zaqali Ruin Investigation areas.
        • Reputation gains from Zaralek Cavern will now be correctly boosted by the Sign of the Emissary from the ongoing World Quest event.
        • “I Need… a Tailor” will no longer consume all Vibrant Wildercloth Bolts in a player’s inventory on turn-in.

            Galakrond's head is present in the Patch 10.1.5 megadungeon as an object and it's huge. We're comparing its to the size of Stormwind and Deathwing, thanks to keyboardturn.
            Galakrond's head is an actual model (M2) instead of a world model object (WMO). M2 are standard creature models capable of animations. Galakrond's head is used in one of the Dawn of the Infinite megadungeon boss rooms.

            Here's what the actual in-game model looks like:

            In a series of tweets, dataminer Ellie (keyboardturn) compared the size of Galakrond's head to Stormwind, Deathwing, and Shen-zin Su (The Wandering Isles turtle). You can follow her on Twitter for more interesting Warcraft content!

            Week 3 of Aberrus saw things settle in, as this may be what the rankings will look like until we see some tuning (at least in Heroic). We're also taking a deeper look into Mythic this week, as more guilds have finished up the raid, but the focus is still on Heroic as it's only been 30 guilds that defeated Sarkareth Mythic.
            Overall Damage 95th Percentile
            Arcane has pulled out ahead even more, increasing their DPS by over 10K since last time, but the other specs are also very much improved, as more tier sets come into play (you can read about just why the Mage spec is doing so well here). While Demonology remains in 2nd, Unholy has pushed up into 3rd, and we have yet another Warlock in the top 5 as Affliction skyrockets 6 spots up and pushes Devastation down into 5th. Shadow remains stable as everything changes around it, with the scuffle above and Subtlety falling down below the Priest. Marksmanship breaks into the top 10, pushing the third Warlock spec out, while the Shamans hang out together in the middle of the pack. Beast Mastery, Fire and Feral remain at the boom, with the Hunter spec getting very used to it down there.

            95th percentile Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
            Overall Damage All Percentiles
            Subtletly is doing a lot better in the generalist bracket, beating out Unholy for 3rd, while the top 2 remain the same. Affliction doesn't rise as high as in the top percentiles, but does gain more spots, 10 in fact, with Balance at its back, also gaining 2. Marksmanship and Fury stick together on their way down, both dropping 2 spots. Devastation is on its way up here, grabbing 9th.

            All percentiles Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
            Boss Only Damage All Percentiles
            Arcane isn't quite as far ahead here, but is still in a commanding lead, as Unholy tries to give it a run for its money. The two top Warlocks specs are very close here and even Destruction arrives into the top 10 to make it 3 purples, as Assassination drops quite a few spots.

            All percentiles Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
            Mythic is becoming more relevant each week, especially with the short fights of Heroic skewing things in favor of Arcane, which isn't doing so well here, finding itself down in 8th. Frost DKs are back on top, but extremely close to Devastation. Shadow is only a little further down, just ahead of previous No.1, Elemental. The Warlock party continues in Mythic as well, as Demo is actually joined by Destro instead of Affliction in 5th and 6th, but the DoT spec isn't that far behind, also making the top 10. Beast Mastery and Fire are at the bottom of all the rankings, but are actually joined by Fury here.

            Blizzard is adding 3 new tabards in Patch 10.1.5. We have a Sons of Hodir tabard, a new Scourge tabard with the Forsaken W3 logo, and more.
            Utopian Tabard
            This is the Sons of Hodir tabard recently added in Wrath Classic, I think.

            Victorious Scourge Tabard
            A new Scourge tabard of sorts with the Warcraft 3 logo was added in Patch 10.1.5. This one has some clipping issues in the latest 10.1.5 PTR build.

            Time Mender's Tabard
            The final third tabard is themed after time travel. Maybe it's from the new megadungeon or Time Rifts.

            Anboni has created a WoW prop hunt game in Unreal Engine 5 that takes place in Gadgetzan.
            You right-click an object to transform into it. "R" is an AoE root on a 1-minute cooldown. When you press "V", you will AoE taunt nearby enemies Everyone can put a robot on the ground that alerts about nearby enemies. Every player has 5 lives.
            Anboni played the game with friends and we have a nearly 10-minute gameplay video.
            If you're interested in how the game came to be you can also watch the "making of" video below.

            The surprise Blue Dragonflight questline that became available on live servers last week added a new Malygos model. Check it out!
            Dragonwrath wielders will obtain Tarecgosa's Visage as a standalone mount upon completion. The questline ends with a cinematic that shows members of the Blue Dragonflight. Most notably, we get to see a brand new Malygos model.
