  2. Shadowlands PvP Dev Interview with Brian Holinka Venruki sat down today with Brian Holinka to discuss all things PvP in Shadowlands. Here are the highlights, and be sure to watch the video for the full interview! PvP Talents In order for PvP to feel fresh, the meta has to change from time to time, and that also means classes have to change with new expansions. Design and class changes are mostly done in new expansions, and it felt like a good time to address PvP talents. The goal was to address talents that felt mandatory and balance issues caused by them. Healing Reduction Healing reduction is a way to make the game more offensive than defensive. The goal was to increase the effect of sustain on targets. The average time frame of 3's shoot to be 3 to 5 minutes. Off-Spec Healers Off-healing should feel like a cool part of your defensive toolkit, but should be balanced. Off-healers should not be able to shut down a kill window while a healer is locked down. This is something that they want to address. Arena should be more lethal rather than non-lethal. Hybrid healing is going to have a balance pass that is PvP specific soon. PvP Gear The team has to design a gearing system in PvP that attracts players while also making sure it doesn't have to be the primary system. Holinka is happy to be back in a place where people hang around the PvP vendors while queing for battlegrounds. Gearing in PvP becomes more of an issue as a season progresses as you fall behind in conquest. Earning Conquest Having a way to catch up is something that should be addressed soon after 9.1 An amp to your conquest earn is something they have been discussing if you fall behind, mainly a small boost to get you started. It is not smart to totally discredit the power progression of players, so it's a fine line. Having increased conquest acquisition on weekends is a suggested addition. Solo Queue Arena compositions is the main issue with having solo queues. It would be really unfair for players with the same rating to queue into a good comp vs a bad one. Solo queue is something that could be tried out in the brawl system first. They understand that some people just want to arena and skirmishes don't do it for some people. Letting players browse groups while listed is one of the solutions to find groups faster. They are not dismissing that it is a problem and are genuinely looking for solutions. Rating Decay Holinka does not like the idea of rating decay, as people shouldn't be punished for life outside of the game keeping them from playing. Burst A solution to one-shots is addressing the number of cooldowns used in PvP. Ultimately the game cannot be designed around these one-shot mechanics as the rest of the time you would feel like a wet noodle. Mind Control Bug The team is aware of it and working really hard to find a fix, but it is proving difficult to replicate and address it. View the full article

  4. Prepare for Lift Off: Get Ready for Flying in Chains of Domination Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Earn your wings and a special covenant-themed mount in the next major content update, Chains of Domination! Instead of challenging you with a Pathfinder achievement like in previous expansions, you’ll instead earn flying in Shadowlands early on within the newest chapters of your covenant campaign. Upon completing a quest contained within the "The Last Sigil" storyline, you’ll be rewarded with Memories of Sunless Skies. This consumable item allows all characters on your account to purchase the Riding Skill needed to fly within the four main Shadowlands zones! Read on to see what you can do right now to ensure you hit the ground running so you can start soaring in Chains of Domination. Reach Renown Level 40 Your covenant is the wind beneath your wings, so you’ll need to prove your utmost loyalty to them by earning Renown Level 44 prior to lift off. Make sure that you are at or reach Renown Level 40 before Chains of Domination goes live, so that your efforts go directly into the levels that will become available with the content update. Ready to reach max Renown? Jumpstart your journey with this guide from Wowhead! If you’re struggling to reach Renown Level 40 prior to the release of Chains of Domination, note that when the content update goes live previous sources of Renown will grant more and at a higher rate than currently. Complete Your Covenant Campaign Before you unfurl your wings, you must progress through the newest chapters within your covenant campaign, specifically early into “The Last Sigil” (chapter 12 of the covenant campaign). This chapter unlocks when you reach Renown Level 44, accessible within the second week of Chains of Domination. There are currently nine chapters to complete, and you can check your current progress by opening your Map & Quest Log (hotkey: l), where it will display on the top right of the active window. Ready to finish your covenant campaign? Jumpstart your journey with these guides from Wowhead! Kyrian | Necrolord | Night Fae | Venthyr If you are unable to complete all of the current chapters, you’ll be able to play through the newest storylines in Chains of Domination so long as you’ve finished your covenant’s introductory questlines and unlocked the Runecarver. You’ll still want to complete any of the skipped chapters when you can, as they are a reliable source of Renown which you’ll need to unlock the ability to fly and other coveted rewards. Soar the Skies in Style Your heroic deeds on the behalf of your covenant will also reward you with a mount fit for the most decorated covenant champions upon reaching Renown 45. Kyrian players will glide on the backs of the elysian aquilon, night fae will ride upon majestic wolf serpents, necrolords will charge into battle on corpseflies, and venthyr will take to the skies on newly awakened stoneborn. Keep an eye on worldofwarcraft.com/news for more information on flying and the covenant mounts coming in the Chains of Domination content update, when you’ll be able to earn your wings and explore the Shadowlands from a whole new perspective.

  5. Patch 9.1.0 PTR - Build 38872 Build 38872 is now live on the PTR! A new reconnect button has been added to the login screen. If you get disconnected, you no longer have to restart the game by closing and opening it from the launcher (or, by re-entering your password). The Mythic+ Season 2 Keystone Affix is now available for testing: Tormented - Servants of the Jailer can be found throughout the dungeon and grant powerful boons when defeated. If a servant is not dealt with, they empower the final boss. New Items You can see all of the new items on the WoWDB PTR site.

Druid Well-Honed Instincts (Conduit) cooldown increased by 50% at all ranks. Monk Mistweaver Soothing Mist’s channel is no longer interrupted by Mana Tea or Zen Focus Tea. Priest Shadow Death and Madness (Talent) will now grant Insanity and reset Shadow Word: Death’s cooldown when Shadow Word: Death is cast while the target is already dying. Rogue Serrated Bone Spike (Necrolord) bleed now properly benefits from critical strike chance. COVENANTS An item to increase your Renown has been added to Trinketaur to enable testing of the new soulbind traits. DUNGEONS AND RAIDS New Seasonal Affix: Tormented – Servants of the Jailer can be found throughout the dungeon and grant powerful boons when defeated. If a servant is not dealt with, they empower the final boss. Players on the test server can speak with the Keystone Vendor in Oribos to acquire test Keystones for all available dungeons and affixes. ITEMS AND REWARDS Cardboard Assassin (Cataclysm Engineering Tinker) now shares a cooldown with potions and its stats no longer scale past level 35. RUNECARVING New Runecarving Powers that empower each classes’ Covenant Ability. Warrior has new powers available in the June 1 update. TORGHAST, TOWER OF THE DAMNED The total number of floors per run is now 5 (was 6). The Tarragrue will now be terrorizing players in the Sanctum of Domination and as such, there is no longer a death counter barrier for continuing your run. Bosses no longer regenerate health after they have defeated you. New Scoring System and Perks You are now scored based on performance after successfully completing a run. At the end of the run, your score will be ranked and you will be awarded with Tower Knowledge, which can be spent at The Box of Many Things to acquire permanent Perks and grow stronger, which will allow you to combat the enemies in Torghast even quicker. Save souls and defeat the Jailer’s forces to become Anima Empowered, allowing you to more effectively crush your foes through a variety of combat and score bonuses. Developers’ note: We want to thank everyone for taking the time to provide feedback on the updates to Torghast. The team has been reading through and iterating the design based on your feedback. A specific change that we’ve made focuses around the common feedback that the Empowered Bar creates a feeling of time pressure that was negatively impacting the playstyle of Torghast. We’ve addressed this by changing the mechanic and we’d love to hear your thoughts after trying out these changes: The Empowered Bar is now more like a “Special” meter than a “Streak” or “On Fire” bar and is filled by performing actions that earn score and no longer decays over time or with deaths. Once you meet a certain threshold on the Empowered Bar, an extra action button appears that you can use to become Empowered. You will remain Empowered for a duration based on the amount of bar that was filled. Empowered provides a number of combat bonuses that can be increased or added at the Box of Many Things. Also, all actions while Empowered contribute to a score bonus at the end of the run. New Layers Four new and more challenging Layers have been introduced, Layers 9–12. Layers are now unlocked by reaching a specific rating in the previous Layer’s run. New Bonus Floor: Adamant Vaults Brave adventurers who make their way through Layers 9–12 efficiently will now be given the option to enter the Adamant Vaults, a new set of floors in Torghast. There they will be challenged against the new creatures and traps that lie within for a chance at even greater rewards. Torments Starting at Layer 4, Torments are applied to increase the challenge of the run. Torments are displayed on the HUD and provide an additional challenge to overcome. Torments are selected per wing per day. The existing Torments are no longer applied. Blessings Through Tower Knowledge, you can unlock Blessings that will provide bonuses to your run. Like Torments, Blessings are selected per wing per day. Soul Ash The amount of Soul Ash that is awarded for the first completed run of the week for any given Torghast Wing and Layer has been increased. Repeat runs of previously completed Torghast Wings and Layers will now award partial Soul Ash. Players that have unlocked Layer 9 of Torghast will now be able to transfer Soul Ash at a slight loss to another character on their account by seeking out Bonesmith Heirmir in Korthia.

You may have to change the character’s name after the transfer. You cannot transfer a character to a PvP realm where you already have a character of the opposite faction. The transfer of a character is a final decision once initiated, and cannot be undone. Blizzard Customer Service cannot adjust or reverse the character transfer process. During times when servers are very busy, free character transfers can take up to several hours. As always, we will monitor the number of characters moved and the populations on the realms above and close free transfers if necessary. We encourage players who wish to move to do so as soon as possible, as this service may be closed without notice. We’ll update this thread with any planned changes or closures as soon as they are finalized. Thank you!

We considered simply reducing his health, but felt that could be needlessly disruptive during his first two phases, so we're instead opting for a more targeted approach.

Honor System Updates for Burning Crusade Classic Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) When first released In December 2006, Patch 2.0 introduced several changes to the Honor system. Burning Crusade Classic follows in its footsteps, and it is in many ways similar, greatly revamping the experience seen in WoW Classic. What is changing? The Burning Crusade Classic Honor system allows for players to participate in PvP combat and obtain rewards by earning honor points that can be accumulated and spent like currency on rewards such as items, weapons, and armor. A significant change is that in Burning Crusade Classic there is no longer any ranking system associated with the honor system, so you no longer need worry about maintaining a rank or standing. Players still interested in ranking up by battling against others can participate in the Arena system, which is the primary form of competitive PvP in Burning Crusade Classic. Unlike WoW Classic's Honor system, honor points accumulate like currency (akin to gold and silver), and do not decay over time. This allows you to work towards PvP rewards at your own pace, which you can purchase as soon as you have enough points to do so. You can accrue up to 75,000 honor points, at which point you’ll stop earning them until you spend some. The amount of honor points required vary for each reward. For most items the honor cost is the most significant part of the item's cost, though Marks of Honor from various Battlegrounds are also required. Last but not least, dishonorable kills are no more. NPCs around the world are no longer set as civilians, so killing them will not impact your ability to obtain honor points. Earning Honor in Battle You can earn honor points in a very similar manner to the old honor system. The game tracks your participation in world PvP as well as PvP within Battlegrounds. As you kill enemies and assist your allies against the enemy, you earn honor. You can also earn honor points by daily quests and certain repeatable quests. When grouped with other players, honor is divided equally between the members of the party. Just like the bonus experience gained when killing monsters in a group, players gain bonus honor for killing players while in a group. If the character levels of some group members are significantly higher than others, the amount of honor gained by the lower-level members will be reduced, as it is with monster experience. Keep in mind that earning honor falls within the rules of experience gain, so players must be in the general proximity of an honor gain to receive a share. In battlegrounds, players can gain honor from defeating other players. However, there are also other methods of earning honor in the Battlegrounds besides player-vs-player battles. Every Battleground has special objectives that grant bonus honor to an entire side upon completion. For example, defeating an opposing side's faction leaders in Alterac Valley, or capturing a flag in Warsong Gulch, grants bonus honor to the entire faction's battleground team. Titles, Arena System, and Gear Rewards If you’ve played WoW Classic and earned any PvP ranks, they’ll be available as titles. You’ll be able to display up to your highest rank achieved under the WoW Classic honor system as your character’s title, but ranks do not play a part in the Burning Crusade Classic honor system. Battleground reputations carry over to the new system, and still increase through participation in the various Battlegrounds, but the current rewards are now only available through honor points. If you obtain exalted reputation with each battleground faction, you’ll also gain access to a new title depending on your faction: Justicar (for the Alliance) or Conqueror (for the Horde). The Arena system in Burning Crusade Classic pits teams of 2, 3, or 5 players against each other in single elimination deathmatch games. To participate, you must first form a team, create a party with the appropriate number of players on that team and join the queue. A team roster can be up to twice the number of players in that team’s bracket (so four players for a 2v2 team, six for a 3v3 team, and ten for a 5v5 team). You may also queue up for unranked skirmishes without a team in order to practice. Whether you win or lose an Arena match, your rating will change, though you can’t lose rating in this way for the first few matches on a new team. At the end of the week, your team’s rating will be used to determine how many arena points you’ll gain for your effort. In order to be eligible, your team must play at least ten matches and you personally must participate in at least 30% of those matches. Arena points earned in matches can be used to purchase new, level 70 epic gear. Some of these items have a personal rating requirement to purchase, such as an 1850 rating requirement to purchase weapons, and a 2000 rating requirement to purchase shoulders. All PvP gear in Burning Crusade Classic also features a new secondary stat: resilience, which greatly increases your survivability by reducing the effect of critical strikes, damage over time effects, and drain effects on you, making it the most desirable gear to have for PvP situations. You can accrue up of 5,000 Arena points. While skirmishes can be played at any time, rated arenas can only be played while a season is active. Burning Crusade Classic will have different seasons across the expansion. At the end of each season, title rewards will be doled out according to your performance in the season compared to the rest of the participants In your region. These titles will last until the end of the following season, with the exception of the top of the bracket who will get their titles permanently. The titles that can be obtained in Season 1 are: Infernal Gladiator (Top 0.1%) Gladiator (Top 0.5%) Duelist (Top 0.5% – 3%) Rival (Top 3% – 10%) Challenger (Top 10% – 35%) In addition, recipients of the Infernal Gladiator and Gladiator titles will also receive a Swift Nether Drake mount, an extremely fast flying mount that is sure to leave your opponents in the dust! There’s a lot more to see in Burning Crusade Classic and we hope you now feel more prepared to take on not only the denizens of Outland, but your foes in the never-ending faction war for dominance. We’ll see you on the battlefield, champion! View the full article

Mac users can once again key bind the Command key. WoW Classic - Oceanic Realm Connections for PvP Matchmaking Reverted Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Yesterday, we opened up region-wide PvP matchmaking for Oceanic players, to ensure that all players in this region who compete for rewards actually play against one another. Following that update, however, we heard loud and clear from players who know how it feels to play on distant servers. High latency is not worth the upsides of potentially smoother matchmaking. With weekly maintenance on Tuesday, June 1 (10:00 p.m. AWST, Midnight AEST, 2:00 a.m. June 2 NZDT), we will revert this change. We’re committed to providing a responsive, enjoyable game to players in every part of the world, and we will pay careful attention to PvP on Oceanic realms over the first few weeks of the first season of Arena play. We’re looking for ways to improve matchmaking and players’ ability to rank up without introducing unbearable lag. We don’t want to permanently implement a region-wide rewards system where some of the players never play against the others. We’ll have an update on that for you in the weeks to come. Thank you very much! ConsolePort Following up on the Bot Ban Wave from May 25th, Blizzard has shared that they don't intend to ban players using the ConsolePort addon. Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Builtforsin: Is this correct? I used it maybe 3-4 times today and that was it. Am I on the way to a ban or is the d/c a result of wow not allowing us to use the addon no longer? It’s hard to say exactly what might be causing disconnects. Nonetheless, I want to clarify that we don’t intend to take action against players who are using any sort of typical hardware to play the game in a typical way. On Tuesday we had an error in our detection routine that caused us to accidentally flag some ConsolePort users, and we reversed it as quickly as possible. View the full article
  10. Patch 9.1.0 PTR - Build 38783 A new build is on the way! Raid Testing Schedule - May 27th - June 1st Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) On Thursday, May 27th, we will be continuing our raid tests in the Sanctum of Domination. Once mythic testing has concluded on the 27th we will be opening the third wing of LFR, Shackles of Fate, for the remainder of the weekend. Thursday, May 27th Sylvanas Windrunner - Heroic Sanctum of Domination 12:00 PDT (15:00 EDT, 21:00 CEST) Kel’Thuzad - Mythic Sanctum of Domination 13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST) Painsmith Raznal – Mythic Sanctum of Domination 14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST) Fatescribe Roh-Kalo - Mythic Sanctum of Domination 15:00 PDT (18:00 EDT, 00:00 CEST) Shackles of Fate – LFR Sanctum of Domination 16:00 PDT (19:00 EDT, 01:00 CEST) As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback. Q: How do I get into the raid zone? A: In Oribos, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade IV in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.) Q: What character should I use to test the raid? A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players’ effective level to 60 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested. Q: How long does testing last? A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we’re satisfied that we’ve received that information for a given boss, we’ll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees. We appreciate you taking the time to test our content and look forward to reading your feedback.

  13. Patch 9.1 PTR - Main Campaign Chapter 6 A New Path Today we are taking a look at chapter 6 of the main campaign in Chains of Domination. *Spoilers Ahead* Thenios is now in Korthia discussing what happened to Uther with the Primus. Bolvar has seen a vision of a vault hidden in Torghast where the Jailer keeps valuable souls. Thenios thinks part of Uther's soul might be kept there as souls can be shattered when killed with these blades and enough rage. He wants you to retrieve it so he may help Uther be fully mended. What follows is a story scenario through a new section of Torghast called the Ossuary of the Banished. On floor 3 you kill Keeper Hazaduum and then enter the portal of souls that appears to retrieve the remnant of justice. You then meet Thenios at the Temple of Wisdom is Bastion to find them discussing the matter of not being able to forge a new sigil without a Paragon of Loyalty. Uther says he might be of help with the forsworn forces. You place the remnant in front of him, but an unimplemented scene shows it isn't that simple. His memories have been shattered and twisted, and must be fixed by experiencing his past once again. You must use the soul mirror to aid Uther in reliving his past life. You are then put into a scenario in Stratholme where you play as Uther. You kneel before Archbishop Alonsus Faol as you make your commitment to the three tenets of respect, tenacity, and compassion. By inspecting a grain sack nearby, Uther starts to recall the fateful day with Arthas where he purged Stratholme. You must then slay some of Athas's forces and cleanse grain sacks before Uther realizes these two memories are not one in the same. Adrestes remarks that Uther's grief and regret still haunt him, as does Arthas. Upon leaving, they suggest digging deeper. The next memory shows the day Arthas became a paladin. Arthas is showing signs of doubt in his ability to be a paladin, and you spar with him while Uther laments his past and feels responsible for reassuring Arthas and putting him down the path that eventually caused so many innocents to die. Back outside, Kleia asks Uther if his wound still hurts. He says it might always hurt, and asks your aid in dealing with one more memory. This last memory is of the moment of Uther's death. You must kill some scourge and rescue citizens while Adrestes wonders why this memory is where Uther lingers. Uther says that he did not follow the virtues, especially compassion, and instead faced Arthas as a bitter foe. Adrestes says confronting this memory has taught him more compassion than any scripture could, and Uther laments not trying to save Arthas. Pelagos says that these troubled memories can be forgotten in time, but Uther says that they are reminders of lessons learned and he would never let them go if given the choice. Adrestes takes this to heart, and says to meet him at Elysian Hold to speak with the Archon. Fallen Disciple Nikolon of the forsworn flies in and asks to speak. He says the forsworn never sought war, but says their own brethren cast them out and refused to listen. Adrestes agrees, and apologizes saying that Uther has taught him much this day. Bastion must follow a new path. Kleia suggests they accompany you to the hold to find a way to unite. There is an unimplemented cutscene at the hold, and Adrestes then tells you to meet him at Steward's Rest. to help convince the rest of the forsworn. You complete some tasks here with Uther and Nikolon, and Uther apologizes for leading Nikolon astray. Once everything is completed, you meet Adrestes at the Citadel of Loyalty. He says loyalty should no longer be demanded, but a virtue that is earned. Adrestes wants to use anima to rededicate the temple, but fears a mawswon attack and asks you to protect him. He shouts out that from now on, none shall be forced to sacrifice their memories. It will be a decision respected by all kyrian. You dispatch the mawsworn, and with a new age for Bastion created and the forsworn reunited with the kyrian, are asked to return to Elysian Hold. There, you witness what seems to be Adrestes becoming the new paragon. Kleia asks Uther what happened to Arthas, and he reveals what he and Devos did. Pelagos says that since the Arbiter wasn't able to judge Arthas's soul, he may yet be redeemed. Uther isn't sure, and it isn't his choice to make. Pelagos says now that he has seen the Maw, he is unsure if any soul deserves that torment, but he has learned that all souls must be treated with compassion.

  18. Patch 9.1.0 PTR - Build 38709 Blizzard Post on Very Extended Burning Crusade Classic Pre-Patch Maintenance Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) We’ve just made the decision to keep realms offline for another two hours while we work through further issues encountered in maintenance. We’re now estimating that we’ll complete this work by 12:00 Midnight PDT. That’s 2:00 a.m. CDT, 3:00 a.m. EDT, 3:00 p.m. AWST, 5:00 p.m. AEST, and 7:00 p.m. NZST. Thank you very much for your continued patience and understanding. Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) No one on the WoW team that I’ve talked to this afternoon can remember a maintenance that took this long. It looks like that’s because we’ve never done anything like this in World of Warcraft, where we’re basically turning one game into two games and we need every player-character in both games to be perfectly playable as they all were just before maintenance started. Please know this: there’s a good reason for how long it’s taking, and our live operations team are making solid progress toward a resolution. There are jobs that copy data and jobs that check the integrity of data and there’s an immense amount of data to process before we even begin the steps that we take to check everything manually. It’s not possible for us to lose anything, but it is possible for us to have an issue that requires a step to be repeated. In today’s case, the step we had to start over was a big one. While performing data integrity checks on the Burning Crusade Classic and Classic Era realms, we discovered an unfortunate issue with all player mail. The nature of the issue necessitated that we restore the portion of the database that contains that information in order to ensure nothing is lost. We’ve been in progress on this restoration for quite some time, but as you can imagine, it’s a huge amount of information. We apologize for the delay in getting you back into Azeroth. We’re pretty sure we’ll be done in a few hours. It’s impossible to know with certainty, but our understanding of how long it’s going to take is coming into focus. View the full article

  20. Overwatch Anniversary 2021 Burning Crusade Classic Prepatch Highlights The Burning Crusade Classic prepatch is live today for NA servers, and so we thought we would highlight the most noteworthy things that come with it! The prepatch will launch tomorrow in the EU. Note - The Classic era servers will not be getting these changes. You will only get this content if you transition your character to TBC Classic servers, or create a new character on the TBC Classic servers. Alliance players will be able to level Draenei characters, including the addition of Shaman. Horde players will be able to level Blood Elf characters, including the addition of Paladins. The Talent Trees will be changed and the additional talent rows will be added. The Jewelcrafting profession will be added. Experience gained from quests will be increased, along with a reduction in the experience needed to level to 60. Your first mount is now purchasable at level 30, and mount costs and training are noticeably lower. New questing hub in Dustwallow Marsh to smooth out the leveling experience a bit. PvP Honor currency will be implemented and is used to purchase PvP gear. Arena Skirmishes will be available, allowing you to practice arena before creating a team when ranked comes in TBC Classic. All current Classic characters will be snapshotted from the moment the servers go down. Upon logging in, players will need to make a choice as to whether or not to keep each of their characters on Classic servers or progress them into The Burning Crusade. There is also an option to clone your characters between both versions of the game for $15 per character. For more information, check out our previous coverage of the choices available to you. Burning Crusade Classic is free to anyone with a current WoW subscription. Players can also purchase the optional digital deluxe edition for more goodies, along with a one-time level 58 character boost to jump right through the Dark Portal on June 1st. Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Are you prepared? World of Warcraft®: Burning Crusade Classic™ launches on June 1, and the pre-expansion patch arrives on May 18.

For those who haven't played WoW Classic recently, or if you're looking to enhance your experience, we have a host of special items just for you. Starting on May 18, after the weekly scheduled realm maintenance, everyone who wants to prepare early to join the adventure when Outland opens on June 1 will have the option to purchase the Dark Portal Pass, allowing them to boost one character of their choosing on a Burning Crusade Classic realm to level 58 (limit one per World of Warcraft account; not usable on blood elf or draenei characters).

  21. Blizzard Vault Release and Giveaway - Overwatch Art Print and More! Patch 9.1 PTR - Main Campaign Chapter 5 The Power of Night Today we are taking a look at chapter 5 of the main campaign in Chains of Domination. *Spoilers Ahead* Upon returning to Korthia, you find a message from Ardenweald sent by Ysera. She requests your presence at the Heart of the Forest. Ysera tells you that Huln has managed to find leads on two night warriors in the Shadowlands. He wants you to meet him in Maldraxxus. When you find Huln, he says his hunt has led him to discover a former night warrior in Maldraxxus. You search each floor of the Sepulcher of Knowledge for tomes to find out who it is, discovering many traps along the way. At the top, you discover that your quarry is a member of the House of Eyes named Khaliiq, who shows herself and asks why you are looking for her. Huln explains that Tyrande Whisperwind is a Night Warrior from our world that is in dire peril. We have been searching for former Night Warriors to help her. Khaliiq says she will help, but not before her current mission is complete. Huln heads to Revendreth to continue his search for other Night Warriors. She says that you require Baroness Vashj's approval for her to help you as she is currently in the middle of a mission that could be swift with assistance. You find Vashj at the Seat of the Primus who says that Khaliiq can aid you once she purges Kel'thazad's loyalists from the House of Rituals. Khaliiq says that Zelmany is trying to gather forces loyal to Kel'thuzad so they might help him in his next plot, and we should look for clues to his location to slay him. She also asks Vashj if she knew Tyrande in life. Vashj says that she knows Tyrande is hard to kill, but focus on the mission. You do some busywork at the House of Rituals, killing loyalists and finding clues before discovering the location and slaying Zelmany. You then meet with Margrave Sin'Dane. Lady Moonberry suddenly pops in a message to alert you that Huln has gotten in some trouble and needs your help. She tells you to meet her in Revendreth. Khaliiq heads to Ardenweald to await you. You find Moonberry at Dominance Keep, who says that the Stonewright isn't letting anyone into her territory because of the recent Dreadlord invasion. Moonberry and Cudgelface have a plan to disguise everyone and search for Huln. You are made to look like a Stoneborn and head through the area avoiding being seen by guards. Moonberry sings about it briefly before Cudgelface tells her that doesn't happen here. Eventually you find a caged Mal'ganis, who tries to convince you to help him get free. Moonberry tells you to go along with it, even though you have no itnention to free him, and you collect sigils of binding around the area. You tell the guard how easy it was to collect these, and she thanks you for alerting her. Moonberry asks if she has seen any incidents lately, and she informs you that something happened on the wall, but the honorguard brought an end to it. Cudgelface thinks he knows where Huln is being held. Mal'ganis says you will regret your betrayal, and Moonberry scoffs that he can't take a joke. You arrive higher up to find you are late for an anima harvest. You play along, and are told by Cudgelface that they expect you to extract anima from a wrathful soul. Moonberry demands the soul to tell us about the bad stuff it did, but it refuses. Cudgelface says this place is about wrath and anger. Moonberry acts angry, and he corrects her saying its about the soul's anger, not hers. You try again, this time Moonberry pulling some psychological breakthrough on the soul by asking it about the loss of its mother and correlating that to him causing quite a few dead mothers himself. The stoneborn who tasked you with this job returns, and you find out from her that Huln is nearby. Up ahead, you discover that the Stonewright is about to throw Huln into the Maw. You arrive just in time, and after a cutscene you explain to her that you are looking for Night Warriors. You find out that she was, in fact, a Night Warrior in life. She agrees to help, but warns you that Elune's wrath is not easily quelled. Back in Ardenweald, you and the former Night Warriors take supplies to the Grove of Awakening to complete the ritual. Tyrande is here, and you spread the items around her, and then perform a ritual. During this time, Tyrande's power becomes too much to control and you have to help subdue her, which leads to an unimplemented cutscene that eventually cleanses her with the help of the Winter Queen...and others. The Winter Queen reveals that Elune is her sister, and is relieved to discover that her sister has not abandoned her after all this time. She suggests you take Elune's Tear (which is now here after the cutscene). As you grab the Tear, Shandris mentions that what she has seen this day she can scarcely believe. Tyrande says she is herself again, and was present for every moment, and yet outside herself. Shandris says there was so much beauty in Elune's voice, and sorrow as well. She also wonders what the Winter Queen meant when she spoke of a purpose for the souls of their people. Tyrande says Elune did not tell her yet. You hand the Tear of Elune to Ysera, and another unknown cool event happens before the chapter ends. View the full article
  22. Burning Crusade Classic Beta Arena Rating Update - May 15 Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) We’ve continued to test rated Arenas in the Burning Crusade Classic Beta, and we agree with a lot of feedback about the Rating requirements on Arena gear, which caused us to take a closer look at how we’re updating the system. One change from the original game that we’re including is having your team and personal rating start at 0, rather than 1500, because we want players to work with their team to improve and push their rating higher, rather than give up because playing more is only causing their rating to decrease. However, we also recognize that teams that are starting out or still learning could feel unfairly penalized by a lower rating than they would have been able to achieve in 2007. While the updated MMR system does rapidly increase your rating for your earliest wins, we want to make sure the points you could expect to earn while improving were similar as well. We’re going to increase the Arena points granted to teams and players with less than a 1500 rating. A rating between 200 and 1500 will earn you: 214-344 points per week for 5v5 arenas 188-302 points per week for 3v3 arenas 162-261 points per week for 2v2 arenas The formula for ratings above 1500 remains unchanged, from the original Burning Crusade formulas, and rapidly starts awarding a lot more points once you pass 1500. We also realized that putting the final Season 4 rating requirements on the Season 1 gear was a bit too restrictive for Season 1, which is when we want to encourage a lot of participation so players can have a wide field of competitors to measure their skills against. When original Burning Crusade first came out, lots of players felt compelled to join Arenas to improve item slots they hadn’t had luck with in dungeons, and we want to make sure that possibility continues to exist, while preserving the prestige of earning the best gear for the higher ratings. We’re going to use the rating requirements that were originally introduced with The Burning Crusade’s 3rd season, which requires a rating of 2000 for shoulders and 1850 for weapons. The rest of the gear will have no rating requirements. When Season 2 launches, we expect to use those same rating requirements for the Season 2 gear, while removing all requirements from the season 1 gear at that time. We’ll keep an eye on how this feels in Season 1 as we watch how players approach this system, and we’ll keep Seasons 3 and 4 in mind as we develop potential tweaks or further improvements. Overall, our goal remains to make Arenas accessible and rewarding, while reserving the most prestigious rewards – such as the new rank 1 title “the Infernal Gladiator” – for the very top players, and we hope these changes will help strike that balance. On Tuesday (May 18), we’re going to end the current “season” in the Burning Crusade Classic Beta and we’re going to test our end of season calculations and rewards. Please feel free to test rated Arenas for the next couple of days and then check back into the Beta after Tuesday to see how that went. Thank you! View the full article
  23. Instant Mail Between Characters Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Mail is supposed to be instant between your own characters during TBC, even if it contains an item or gold. It is currently delayed still. I see that the team has been verifying a fix for this. It will probably go to the PTR today, and should be fixed in on live Burning Crusade Classic realms when they go live on Tuesday. Guild Banks Available in a Future Patch Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) So obviously guild banks are physically in-game. But they are not activated in beta currently. Will they be activated at TBC launch? As a guild leader, this is a hugely important topic for me. We have huge plans for utilizing a real guild bank that will just not be possible with the current multiple guildbank characters needed to hold everything. Hello. We have not been planning to open guild banks with the launch of Burning Crusade Classic. They’re going to come into the game in a future patch, and we’re working to make that happen sooner than it would have if we’d followed the original patch progression (guild banks were originally in the same patch as Zul’Aman). Burning Crusade Collector's Edition Netherwelp Pet Redeemable Next Week Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) Are collectors edition pets supposed to be available in beta, or will I only see my netherwelp pet once BC classic comes out? First time getting beta and having a collectors edition account. They aren’t testable in the Beta, but the original Burning Crusade Collector’s Edition Netherwelp pet should be available after maintenance next week for characters that you move to The Burning Crusade Classic in pre-patch. Just speak to innkeepers in major cities or Landro Longshot in Booty Bay, if you have the original Collector’s Edition license on your World of Warcraft account. View the full article

  25. WoW Classic Era Realm Connections Coming Next Week Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums) As we approach the moment when WoW Classic players will make the choice to move on to The Burning Crusade Classic (version 2.5.1) or stick with Classic Era (version 1.13.7), we will be connecting many Classic Era realms during maintenance on Tuesday, May 18. This means that in each region/locale, we will create connected realms among groups of Classic Era PvP realms, or groups of Classic Era Normal realms, or Classic Era RP realms. In North America, we will connect: Anathema, Arcanite Reaper, Bigglesworth, Blaumeux, Fairbanks, Kurinnaxx, Rattlegore, Smolderweb, Thunderfury, and Whitemane Arugal, Felstriker, and Yojamba Ashkandi, Mankrik, Pagle, and Westfall Atiesh, Azuresong, Myzrael, and Old Blanchy Benediction, Faerlina, Heartseeker, Incendius, Netherwind, and Windseeker Earthfury, Herod, Kirtonos, Kromcrush, Skeram, Stalagg, Sulfuras, and Thalnos In Europe, we will connect: Mirage Raceway, Nethergarde Keep, and Pyrewood Village Ashbringer, Bloodfang, Dragonfang, Earthshaker, Gandling, Golemagg, Mograine, Noggenfogger, Skullflame, and Firemaw Dreadmist, Flamelash, Judgement, Razorgore, Shazzrah, Stonespine, Ten Storms, and Gehennas Our goal is to maximize the opportunities for Classic Era players to establish strong communities and carry on enjoying their way of play. We hope to see healthy populations of connected realms for Classic Era players, and we’ll continue to monitor and consider further connections in the future. Thank you! View the full article
