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.

    I'm glad I wasn't alone in thinking that Atra and Nef were bugged tonight. we got Atra down, but Nef we couldn't. the mobs, going into phase 3, were not dropping aggro on the DPS who normally kites them.

    I'm really starting to like The Daily Blink.

    Too bad they included warnings though.

    If someone can't tell just by looking at the daily blink that it is a joke, the warnings aren't big enough for them.

    You know, when even the Daily Blink is making sarcastic jokes about mages, I think it's about time someone woke up Ghostcrawler...

    This is getting silly, and this joke is perfect.

    Ohh, and read the mouse-over text on the daily blink site... Just a tip...

    I think this joke more the reaction ppl had when they saw frostbolt buff then joking about devs buffs mages.
    The general people reaction for 2 litle buffs was like they probably should did if this blink was real.

    Edit:
    Mirror Images now is called as Summon Charlie Shee. You summ 4 Charlie Sheens filling you with full of win making other team lose. 10 min CD.

    Well, I'm allmost tempted to assume you're playing a mage...

    Cause only people that play the class in question are usually blind to their own overpoweredness.
    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...

    Anyhow, just thought I'd share this one:
