Recap: Tier 13 and Visual Retrospective
We have seen half of the new Tier 13 sets now, but it is likely that the rest won't be added daily.



Reminder: Firelands Raid Changes Incoming
Don't forget about the nerfs that go in to effect this week!

With the final showdown against Deathwing approaching, we’ve been keeping a close eye on players' progress through the current Firelands raid content. Before patch 4.3 is released, we want groups who are working on Heroic-difficulty content to be able to get as close to Ragnaros as possible, and we want players who are tackling normal progression to be able to experience as many of the encounters as they can. To achieve these goals, we’ll be toning down the difficulty of both normal and Heroic raids through hotfixes in the coming weeks. In general, we plan to reduce health and damage of all raid bosses in both normal and Heroic Firelands by around the same percentage we brought difficulty down for the original Cataclysm raids when Rage of the Firelands (patch 4.2) was released.

We're looking forward to seeing more groups of players face off against the Fire Lord in the weeks ahead. However, before we make these changes, we want to give everyone a final shot at the bosses at their current difficulty level -- so this is a heads up that we’re planning to apply the difficulty hotfixes beginning the week of September 19.

Stay tuned to the Patch 4.2 Hotfixes blog for these and other live updates to the game as they happen.

    While I don't mind the changes and will embrace them. I was hoping they would do this in a more "ICCish" style with a buff, so we couls click it off and do the fights as they originally were.

    Is it known at all the exact percentage of nerd we're going to be seeing this Tuesday for Firelands? I know the goal is to hit it with the same nerfbat BoT and BWD were hit with. But will that all happen Tues, or bit by bit?

    I believe 20-30% is what's intended.

    My guess is that they'll nerf normal modes next week, then 1-2 heroic bosses each following week..../shrug

    Whoever is in charge of the difficulty progression curve at Blizzard for WoW needs to be fired.
    They've fucked up the leveling curve>heroics>raids>heroic raids so bad this ex-pac they need to be turfed.
    Give raiders their hard modes Blizz, but next time don't forget the rest of your fucking subscribers until 6-10 months after an expac release.


    edit: formatting.

    Blizzard's continuously updating TBC gallery with new pics.... Is it just me, or does this indeed somehow indicate that we'll see some love for TBC content in near future? (next patch or expansion perhaps)

    does "starting on monday 19th" mean the next maintainance? so will the europeans get their nerfbat on wednesday the 21st?
