Season of Discovery

  • Shaman
    • Rolling Thunder can now trigger from Overload versions of Lightning Bolt and Chain Lightning.
  • Warlock
    • Felguards summoned by Warlocks will now have their appropriate demon names, instead of just ‘Felguard’. This name will not be permanent like other Warlock pets, and the Felguard’s name will change upon every summon.

More buff instead nerf for shamans, kill that game completely!


Again fixes for classes that are OP in PvP, goodjob. Do a hotfix to nerf these classes already.

So many bugs on both versions but oh well :rofl:

maybe clue is in to what the plans are for phase 4?

its pretty dry out here, and the community hungers for information.

Still waiting on that banwave from everyone who’s been exploiting since phase 1 who are still here, playing and exploiting. Nor have you yet to make an announcement regarding your splendid idea to ruin your game by selling hacks to those depressed enough while scamming everyone who isn’t buying hacks.

As an Orc I do agree hardiness is good compared to other racials, but did they say they were giving nerfs to racials?

Also yes, nerf enhance shaman in PvP.

Season of Discovery

  • Addressed an issue that caused quest “Goblin Solutions” to sneakily steal extra mines from you.

How can you leave threads with over 1000 comments unanswered and just release a hotfix without a sorry? NA with Lava Lash, international with server transfers – all the players are talking about how you broke up their guilds and friend groups. Players aren’t playing their characters because they are “parked” and waiting for a transfer, after levelling every bank character to level 10 and dividing gold evenly in case they can’t transfer everything, etc., etc., etc.

Why is a simple “sorry” so difficult? Why is it so hard to acknowledge your players as human beings? Now is the time to be empathetic. In the near future, we might say, “Hey, ChatGPT, create a copy of classic WoW running locally with a server population of 4000 friendly non-ganking AI players.” If you don’t make a better product than every private server, how will you keep this company alive after everyone can create a better game with better-monitored users themselves?

more of a shame is that no balance changes to shaman first and foremost.

look i understand them in this regard, they said they are working on big class overhauls, its the ignoring of the customers what is just annoying. Not giving a timeline, no sorry, no answers, not playing the game themselves.

They should have made it clear from day 1 that working on both cata and SoD they’d take turn focusing on either one of these projects. That would have saved a lot of frustration from players to know that the dev team wouldn’t be able to tackle both games at the same time.
Better still, they should have selected two different teams to take care of two different games. Pretty wild they haven’t thought of that.

  • The 6-hour wait between applications of Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer and Warchief’s Blessing has been reduced to 1 minute.
  • Fixed an issue with the Rolling Thunder rune where it only worked if you also had the Shield Mastery rune equipped. That requirement was accidental and is now removed.

  • All non-Elite, non-Boss enemies in Nightmare Incursions now have health and damage values the same as a standard creature of their level. Previously, most had 50% more damage and health. Experience values for these enemies has been reduced by 33% in most cases, which is still more than standard creatures.
  • Pattern: Leather-Reinforced Runecloth Bag (18 slots) is now available for Undermine Real.
  • Bottomless Bag and Onyxia Hide Backpack now have 20 slots.

Some additional buggs - Hunter talents arent working after dying at times like Lightning reflexes and Leathal shots. I don´t think this is isolated to only hunters. Only work-around atm is to swap active dual spec back and forth for it to work again.
