is it intended that starfall doesn't put players in it in combat sometimes? lost a lot of games due to healer regging inside it


Targets that are out of line-of-sight from the center of where the Starfall was cast are not affected. This includes placing them in combat.

Is the weekly conquest point reward meant to remain 355 despite getting higher rating min ilvl than that?


The weekly 500 Conquest quest reward is static and not increased based on your rating. However, you can boost its iLvl to your respective rank with a Battleborn Sigil.

Just discovered I will not be able to make follower equipment on any of my characters. Very disappointed in the decision by @WarcraftDevs to put the critical item for these only in mythic dungeons.


Hydrocores also have a chance to drop from Heroic dungeons.

overall ilvl or lowest equipped item? not scaling for many people...


Azerite Armor caches scale based on the highest item level soulbound gear you've picked up for each slot (even if you don't have the item any more). It doesn't have to be equipped or kept in your bags.

So switching rings and trinkets might raise the bar?


No, rings and trinkets count for both slots.

We're making two small changes to how the Azerite Armor rewards from Emissary quests scale, based on player feedback:

I am so confused. For the Azerite Armor Caches is this "highest item level" ONLY going off of azerite gear that we have/had, or any gear that we have/had?


Average of all items, not just Azerite pieces, exactly like world quests and other Emissary rewards.

Hey Devs. The quest "Justice for the Fallen" on LFR difficulty is comsuming Voljin's blade, but not completing the quest. Had at least myself and 5 other people come to this realisation. Is this intended?


We are aware of this issue and working on a fix. Thanks!

Can you explain what's going on with Impassive Visage here @WarcraftDevs ?


We've pushed a hotfix that will allow Impassive Visage to activate off of several types of raid damage that it previously would not have.
