Blizzard on Nighthold Tank Balance - Thu, 16 Mar 2017 00:13:26 -0500 Blizzard The situation around Nighthold, tank balance, and magical damage has spawned a lot of discussion for us in recent weeks, ranging from immediate balance concerns to philosophical issues of how magic damage should be used. We do feel that the damage profile in Nighthold caused tanks to be less balanced than we'd like on a handful of encounters.
Brush up on the key topics in Patch 7.2 with our previews for Tier 20 Armor Sets, Class Mounts, Broken Shore Content, Legendary Updates, and Artifact Updates. Tomb of Sargeras is not coming with 7.2's launch - it will be a while after, like Nighthold following Legion's launch.
Patch 7.2: Paragon Reputation Levels and Mount Rewards - Wed, 15 Mar 2017 16:27:15 -0500 Patch 7.2 adds a new reputation level beyond Exalted for Broken Isles reputations: Paragon. Players already Exalted with Broken Isles factions earn special satchels for every 10,000 reputation awarded beyond Exalted, which contain unique rewards such as mounts and toys.
How to Earn Paragon Reputation
Once you are Exalted with a particular reputation, a small bag will appear on your UI indicated that you are eligible to earn Paragon reputation rewards.
