Possible Leaks: Overwatch 2, Diablo 4 and Diablo 2 Remastered to Be Announced at BlizzCon? Possible Leaks: Overwatch 2, Diablo 4 and Diablo 2 Remastered to Be Announced at BlizzCon? We have a couple of weeks left until BlizzCon and the leaks and rumors have been heating up, with today's having at least a hint of credibility. It comes from streamer Metro_ow, and he's claiming to have a source that has given him a lot of info on the announcements and some game specifics for Overwatch 2 as well.

Why should he be considered credible? He's already leaked a number of things about Ashe from last year's BlizzCon, around a week before the actual reveal, with the info coming from the same source - "someone tied directly to a Blizzard dev". Now, obviously that doesn't mean his leaks are real this time around, but it at least separates him from the pack. But what exactly is he leaking?

Warcraft 3: Reforged Gameplay Videos Warcraft 3: Reforged Gameplay Videos It seems we have some very enthusiastic people in the closed WC3: Reforge beta, as youtuber Book of Flames has posted several videos of the game running on max settings at 1080p at 60FPS! We get a good look at the Orc and Human factions, with 3 matches being played and a surprise cameo by a Pandaren Brewmaster! We get some nice zoom-ins on a few units as well and a pretty good showcase of the game in action. Blizzard Blizzard Oct 17, 2019 at 19:35 by Starym 16 comments

Hotfix for October 15: Enchants No Longer Count as Helpful Auras Hotfix for October 15: Enchants No Longer Count as Helpful Auras It's been a while since we got word that something weird was happening with the auras in Classic, with several aspects that affect them already resolved. Today we have further progress on that, namely the part where some item enchants were using up slots and thus knocking off helpful buffs like Power Word: Fortitude and the like, as the issue has been partially fixed. There are still some item enchants that require a slot, but that's what it was like in 1.12 as well so it's staying.

Select realms have reached their end-state of a single layer. Servers that have two layers will be marked as "Layered" in the realms list soon.

True World First Classic Sulfuras, from China True World First Classic Sulfuras, from China It seems we spoke too soon when we announced the first Sulfuras today, as a Chinese player actually completed it 4 days ago! With Classic it's a little harder to track exactly who got a WF, and in our previous post the comment linking the earlier completion wasn't in yet at the time of posting. As we weren't getting a lot of information out of the Asian Classic scene during the leveling stage we consequently missed this one as well. Apologies to LongDD who got the legendary mace first, on September 17th to be exact, and here's the video to commemorate the crafting: WoW Classic WoW Classic Sep 21, 2019 at 17:15 by Starym 5 comments
West First Classic Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros Crafted West First Classic Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros Crafted Update: apologies for the headline, it should have read WEST first - with the leveling and raid race for Classic we used West as we didn't have info from Asia servers so I made the mistake of lumping it in as a "World First". Apologies!
Here's the article about the real World First, Chinese player LongDD.

Original article:
We already reported on the World First Eye of Sulfuras drop some 2 weeks ago, but actually crafting the thing takes a whole lot of time and resources, so it's only now that the actual weapon has popped up in the game! The original first drop came for the guild Venture from Flamelash EU, but it seems Senseless from Firemaw EU focused more on acquiring all the mats and most of all transmutes needed to get the thing assembled! Big congratulations to the guild and Kembria in particular!

With a whole lot of class and profession trainers and vendors marked, and each part of the city mapped, the only other thing you really need to know is how long to spend running around the bank roof. The correct answer is: forever.

Feign Death Bug and Upcoming Hotfix Feign Death Bug and Upcoming Hotfix Here come some more Classic hotfixes, as Blizzard have found at least part of the issue that was causing problems with hunters' Feign Death. It seems the spell cancelling for turning is more sensitive in Classic than it was in 1.12, so it's much easier for the Feign to cancel out. The hotfix will address this issue, but excessive turning both during and after the cast will still cause it to fail, but it will be less likely after the hotfix.
