Oh man. I hope they have some nice surprises in store for phase 4. Waiting almost 2 weeks just to have a slight change to Efflorescence seems cruddy.

Warrior and rogue nerf when?

If melee hunter was doing to much damage, so were they.

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

No class adjustments?

Bittersweet imo. Would be nice to have the game be a bit fresh again, but on the other hand, no class adjustments likely means that a P4 announcement will be here soon

I didnt even know this quest existed! Thanks for the update!

Whats the latest on clerics?

Season of Discovery

  • 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.
  • Alchemists specialized in Mixology and Transmutation will now always get at least 1 extra resource produced by their specialized recipes. The maximum received from a single recipe is still 4.
  • Main Gauche will now always apply its discount to Sinister Strike, even if the ability does not land. Both of Main Gauche's buffs will now be removed when the rune is 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.

RIP to those that kept their Xmutes going during p3. Inc 1/2 price or less Arcanite Bars now & full price crystals. My 50 bars could have been 100 :frowning: … On the positive side… 25 CDs to go.

Why is the worldbuff change slated as a SoD change but it’s currently in era?

I hate this change to alchemy. What a stupid thing to do that massively screws over people who were diligently making arcanite on cooldown.

Also, because of the unpopularity and length of phase 3, the elixir supply is already incredibly high. There wasn’t as large of a playerbase as the previous phases to be consuming them, so there’s already a massive backstock from phase 3, and now we are going into a new phase with guaranteed 2x procs meaning that supply is only ever going to continue growing. We will never see parity on raid consumables again with this. Thanks Blizzard. I don’t know what kinda crowd was clamoring for this, but I am sure happy you catered to their demands.

Healers have no use for any of the offensive ring engravings, so it’d be nice if priests and mages could also benefit from the defense ring engraving.

Any chance Fire Immune mobs in dungeons like BRD could be looked at?

Kinds sucks as a lock tank where you have to DoT (Corruption and Agony), Shadow Cleave, Taunt on CD, and pray.

Are the Alterac Valley changes already live? Or tomorrow’s reset?

Even worse in Scholo where there are mobs immune to all magic.
