Blue Post on Battle for Azeroth Block - Thu, 12 Apr 2018 19:51:29 -0500
Following yesterday's blue post on tank mitigation, we have another reply today discussing how Block works in Battle for Azeroth.

Blizzard

The value of block now passively increases as you get more and more gear, most notably from shield. Block as a mechanic still scales somewhat linearly throughout the expansion, instead of double dipping with the increased survivability from having higher armor contribution on top of it.
This is the right idea.

The Witchwood - Hearthstone’s First Year of the Raven Expansion – Is Now Live! - Thu, 12 Apr 2018 12:01:00 -0500
“Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately Raven of the saintly days of yore;
Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door—
Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door—
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.”

Hearthstone’s latest expansion – The Witchwood – just got released!

Blue Post Roundup: Prot Paladin Mitigation, New PvP Info Soon, Remote AH Shut Down - Wed, 11 Apr 2018 22:15:26 -0500
With PAX East over and Blizzard developers back to their normal schedule, today we had some interesting blue posts in a variety of subjects.

Protection Paladin Magic Mitigation

A known change going into BFA is that Shield of the Righteous will increase your armor as a % of your Strength stat. This orients Shield of the Righteous to be strong against physical damage while losing any value vs. Magic attacks. This change is fine. I'm ok with this change.
