Blizzard has announced changes to the MVP Forum program for World of Warcraft, including an application-based recruitment system.

Blizzard

<This is going to be a bit of a meta discussion, and not something focused on World of Warcraft, as a whole. Those of you who are active on the forums and among the other World of Warcraft communities will probably have more thoughts on this than those who visit the forums on rare occasion.>

Hey guys!

Battle for Azeroth: New Formula for Calculating Ability Damage - Thu, 15 Feb 2018 09:03:52 -0600
In alpha build 26010, we found that Melee & Hunter abilities which were previously based on weapon damage now instead use attack power as a direct coefficient. On live, attack power based abilities ignore weapon damage entirely, raising questions of whether weapons would scale poorly for everyone without greatly increased stats, weapon damage would no longer exist, or some other unknown change.

Dungeon Experience Hotfixes - Wed, 14 Feb 2018 18:27:14 -0600
Blizzard has changed experience gains through a hotfix earlier today. The experience awarded for queueing Normal dungeons has been increased, while the experience gains while grouping with a higher level player have been reduced.

Blizzard

Hi all,

From WoW’s earliest days, we’ve always had to take steps to limit experience gains for characters when grouped with someone of a drastically higher level. We recently became aware of a bug introduced in 7.3.5:

Blizzard on Hunter Pet Specialization Changes in Battle for Azeroth - Tue, 13 Feb 2018 22:59:00 -0600
Blizzard has shared thoughts on Hunter Pet Specialization changes in Battle for Azeroth. On the Alpha, we datamined many changes including abilities related to each specialization, new specializations for certain pet families, and new utility abilities for families that were previously lacking them.

However, some confusion stemmed from using terminology that was previously associated with a DPS/health disparity among pets in previous expansions.

First Aid Potential Revamp or Removal in Battle for Azeroth - Tue, 13 Feb 2018 20:21:15 -0600
First Aid may be undergoing a big revamp, or even removal, in Battle for Azeroth. While you can still train First Aid on the alpha, datamining suggests that First Aid is being removed and the bandages are added to the Tailoring profession.

Check out more datamined spell changes in the 26032 Class and Profession Updates Blog.

Legacy Achievements

Many First Aid achievements are now categorized as Legacy instead of Professions.

Updated Warlock Spell Effects - Tue, 13 Feb 2018 15:00:51 -0600
Legion started a process of updating all class animations. It started all the way back in 7.0 with a few classes, mostly melee, receiving new Casting Animations. Afterwards, during patch 7.3, most casters received updated animations, but a couple were left off, one of those being Destruction Warlocks.

Updated for the new Drain Life and Incinerate animations on the new 2/13 alpha build!

We've also covered new talent visuals in a separate post!

Artifact Traits and Legion Legendary Effects Returning in Battle for Azeroth - Mon, 12 Feb 2018 15:30:00 -0600
In Battle for Azeroth, we will lose our Artifacts (in a future event that we already datamined!) and our legendary items. However, through playing the Battle for Azeroth Alpha and datamining, we can see that a handful of effects once present on legendary items or artifact traits are now talents or baked into other abilities. In this article, we show the current state of these abilities transferring between expansions.

Note: This is all Alpha information and it is not final.

Battle for Azeroth Hunter Pet Revamp - Sat, 10 Feb 2018 22:13:53 -0600
Battle for Azeroth Alpha Friends and Family is underway and with it comes many class changes. This article will focus on the changes coming to Hunter pet specializations and base abilities.
Currently, in Legion, regardless of their base specialization, any hunter pet can assume any specialization. That means a turtle can be a damage dealer and a moth can be a sturdy tank. However, Battle for Azeroth is changing that.

Note: This is all Alpha information and it is not final.
