Patch 8.3 and Classic Hotfixes: February 24th Patch 8.3 and Classic Hotfixes: February 24th Update: the daily quest Coalescing Visions reward increase was actually a typo and it's now been fixed - it is a 30% increase and not a 50% one.

The massive February 24th hotfixes are here, featuring both the class and Horrific Vision tuning, as well as Explosive Orb M+ affix changes, Ny'alotha tuning, and even more Horrific Visions changes. In WoW Classic we have Razorgore only save raids to the instance if he was killed after all the eggs were destroyed.

End of Fall of the Lich King Remastered Cinematic End of Fall of the Lich King Remastered Cinematic We have another remastered WoW cinematic on our hands, this time hand-made and not AI upscaled to boot! The end cinematic of the Icecrown Citadel raid is particularly relevant today, as it not only sets up Bolvar as the new Lich King, but also takes place in the Sylvannas vs. Bolvar arena that sets off Shadowlands.

How Addons Affect Raid Design - A Morgan Day Interview How Addons Affect Raid Design - A Morgan Day Interview The biggest ongoing discussion in a large part of the WoW raiding player base has been whether raids are harder now than they were in the past, with Vanilla and Classic especially coming under fire for seemingly "easy" bosses. Now it's obvious today's boss fights are infinitely more complex, but there's a huge mitigating factor to consider, and that's addons. If you needed more proof for just how important mods are to raiding, the recent World First race win by Complexity Limit came just as they got their own dedicated addon coder, in their partnership with Deadly Boss Mods. Regardless of where you come out on the "raids were harder in era X" discussion, it's very clear addons have completely changed the way raids work, and we now have a look inside how exactly that evolved in a PC Gamer interview with lead game designer Morgan Day.

WoW Shadowlands Alpha Added to Battle.net Catalog WoW Shadowlands Alpha Added to Battle.net Catalog We have some news on the much awaited Shadowlands alpha, as MMO Champion have noticed it's actually been added in the latest Battle.net catalog update! It's an encrypted build, however, so there won't be any datamining quite yet and it's most likely just some set up for when the actual Alpha starts, but it's definitely pointing in the "soon" direction!

Nyalotha Mythic WF Race, Conclusion: Top 10, NZoth Nerf, Limit Tank Goes to Method, Asia Upset and More Ny'alotha Mythic WF Race, Conclusion: Top 10, N'Zoth Nerf, Limit Tank Goes to Method, Asia Upset and More The race for the top spots is done, even though there are plenty more guilds progressing on N'Zoth. The biggest news since we last checked in was that both the Corruption affixes and N'Zoth himself were nerfed, and according to the top guilds, when you add both nerfs together N'Zoth got a bit easier. He received a 5% overall nerf and the Thought Harvesters did as well, while the Corruption effect (mainly Echoing Void) nerfs only accounted for around 2-3% of Limit and Method's total damage, and that number significantly drops off for lower ranked guilds, as they won't have had as good gear (with the possible exception of some Asian guilds).
