This is fine…but while you’re tweaking some animations, please fix Frost DK with not knowing when it is taking out/putting away a two handed weapon. It doesn’t know that the class can dual wield and NOT dual wield -_-

Why mess with PVP this late in the expansion? It still seems so unbalanced and some classes feel like they just have incredibly overpowered talents, escapes and CC’s. Would love a better explanation as to how and why these changes are made? Is it solely based off player complaints? Is it based on the top performing players? It it based on players who have YouTube channels and relationships with devs? Just seems like an average player like myself (not HC pvper) struggles to make any progress and then gets hit with a nerf while other classes just seemed to get buffed over and over. I would just like to understand better how these decisions are made.

This felt like a good, noticeable change.

Please fix “To The Test: Rune of Shadowbinding”. Its been bugged as long as the Taut quest before it, yet y’all only fixed that one and not the follow-up quest.

  • Jepetto Joybuzz and his clockwork assistant have received a new shipment of Prismatic Baubles in stock from the Mad Merchant. They can be purchased during the month of June for the standard price of 250,000 gold.


  • Fixed an issue where raid encounters were not granting quest credit for “To the Test: Rune of Shadowbinding”.

if those tethers were able to work in combat it would eliminate a lot of headaches

Can you hotfix the erroneous decision to make maximum level guild achievements no longer attainable for the next two months of Dragonflight where level 80 is not possible yet? The support article calls 10.2.7 the “pre-patch” which breaks with over a decade of precedent. 11.x is the ACTUAL pre-patch. A lot of people were trying to get their guilds the 8th tab before the expansion and you just kicked us in the teeth.

So for just under 20 dollars via a WoW Token, I can get the pride item? I’m scraping by to try and keep my head above 100k G, let alone 250 for a toy.

Havoc demon hunter still has a 4% aura nerf meant for pvp that was mistakenly applied to pve a couple weeks ago. Can we have any word on that being fixed?
