Boss ‘Fixation’ Bug and Hotfix
Originally Posted by Bashiok (Blue Tracker)
Due to a fix applied earlier today a bug was introduced that is causing bosses which have any ‘fixate’ abilities, meaning those that will fixate on and/or chase a certain player, to not function correctly. This is currently noticeable for most players on Atramedes in normal or heroic, and Ascendant Council and Sinestra on heroic, but affects a great number of other bosses throughout the game.

We have a fix currently in the testing stages but it will require realm restarts to apply. We’re currently anticipating rolling restarts to happen early tomorrow morning during off-peak hours. We apologize for any inconvenience for those attempting bosses tonight with these mechanics.

Guild Challenges Information
Zarhym wrote a couple of blue posts about Guild Challenges, it's not really a preview yet but at least we know where it's going now.

[...] What about if Guild Challenges gave experience above the cap, functioning like rested experience and moving the cap further relative to the experience gained through completing said challenges?

Don't worry. I can read, I swear. I'm referring to experience and not rep.

Ok now you're just tormenting us Zar. How about a one-sentence teaser about what guild challenges actually are?
Built into the user interface, Guild Challenges will be separated into three categories: Guild Dungeon Run, Guild Raid, and Guild Rated Battleground. You just need to be in a guild group to complete each category a set number of times per week, earning your guild achievements, experience above the cap, and gold deposited into the Guild Vault (a lot more gold if the guild is level capped). We'll have more details for you probably by next week.

Are these challenges only going to be able to be completed at level 85? It would be nice to see some love for low-level members in the guilds!
As I understand it, you'll be eligible to contribute equally to things like the Guild Dungeon Run challenge, provided the dungeon you're running is level-appropriate for the guild group.

That's pretty disappointing. Isn't this what guilds are already doing anyway? I thought it would be more like guild quests that create a phased challenge somewhere in the world for your guild to complete. This just promotes even more LFG queueing while sitting in town. Some love for world zones in endgame please.
We're working on something sort of along these lines as a much more robust content feature for the future, but I can't put a date or patch number on that yet. It also won't necessarily be centered around guilds.

Was that ambiguous? I've never been ambiguous before, so I wouldn't know.

The Daily Blink - Mages Get A Slight Buff in 4.1
Another piece from The Daily Blink! Hopefully I made the warning big enough.

    Sure, mages could use some love on the PVE side of things, but they're allready so insanly OP in battlegrounds it's sad to watch. You can see mages in BGs controlling 3-5 people easilly.
    And dont give me that crap about diminishing returns and shit, those slowing effects and the freezing. Yeah, it's not even close to funny anymore...
    Mages are still not as good as people like you believe. Good players can pretty easily handle them in arena or rated bg. Don't even include normal battlegrounds, seriously.

    You do interact with people in WoW right? If so, you should understand why a warning is needed.

    Daily Blink is my favorite when they make class jokes.

    Also, <insert some text about how yall are gonna get facerolled even more now>.

    It should be noted that the warning sign was added only HERE - the original post in The Daily Blink had no warning sign. Nice joke on its own...
  1. Xcuse's Avatar
    The person that got his thread locked for trolling did so because his threat title stated "The REAL mage changes for 4.1" (or something among the lines) and his post contained no warning about this being a joke and absolutely not real...

    ... I guess. Obviously you'd expect people to realize, but meh.

    I'm curious as to what the hotfix was that caused the issue in the first place. Explains why the Iron Roots debuff from Elder what's-his-name in Ulduar wasn't going away after the thing had been killed, though. My guild had to give up on getting the Lumberjacked achievement.

    Anyone who would believe those would need to quit the game already lol.

    Then again, if you thought the warning was necessary, i guess some people did QQ in the past for similar joking patch notes. Sad.
    obviously you're underestimating the stupidity of the internet.

    It's sad that you have to tell some people that a joke is a joke.

    Also if a Mage is counterspelling a Paladin, the Paladin was already Holy. /fail
