Pet Battle Bonus Event – December 30 - January 4

Before you head out into the wild with your lower-level wild things, make sure you pick up the quest “The Very Best”. Because you’re the best – around – you’ll want to queue up for PvP Pet Battles with a team of three level-25 pets. After only five wins during the event, you’ll be rewarded with an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone, which means another level 25 is on its way to your collection.

Yeah, we prefer that format too. I'd expect to see that for the other zones a bit further down the line. (craig_amai)

Legion - Demonsaber Mount
Legion adds a Demonsaber mount, which is currently listed as a Demon Hunter mount. Currently Demon Hunters only gain access to the Felsaber mount on the Alpha, but several NPCs were riding Demonsabers during the Demon Hunter intro experience.

.A lot of new things have been tried this year wrt holidays, really appreciate the feedback, we'll keep iterating (Muffinus)

Blizz didn't learn from Love Rocket RNG, and this is significantly worse.
I wouldn't say it's a lack of learning, more "hey this is a new concept (illusions), how desired is it?" (Muffinus)

Sometimes. Most topics quickly degrade into namecalling. (holinka)

lore question if you'll indulge me: Where does Elune rank in terms of power? Old God level? Titan level? Even higher?
Those questions are more fun to speculate about than answer. Where do you think she falls? (DaveKosak)

Ghostcrawler Tweets
Ghostcrawler still occasionally talks about WoW. Remember that he no longer works for or speaks for Blizzard.

Some fighting games have so much rich animation that it sells how you're doing with very little use of numbers. (OccupyGStreet)
MMOs often have to emphasize quantity over quality, and that usually means a pretty simple basic combat model. (OccupyGStreet)
By which I mean positioning, timing and so on have to be pretty simple. (OccupyGStreet)
They dress that up with depth, usually in the form of numbers, e.g. resistances, speed, crit, dots, and so on. (OccupyGStreet)

Legion Alpha - Demon Hunters and Nefarian
It looks like Nefarian was updated to have a Demon Hunter class call before the Alpha went down.

Armory Stats - Winter Veil Gifts
As we wait for Greatfather Winter to arrive, we are going to look back and see how many current players have the older gifts. For this data, we defined active as players that have logged in since November 1, 2015. All includes all of the players in our database, no matter when they last logged in. While we were gathering data, we noticed that only 114,022 players have all 8 years of gifts!

Unfortunately, we can no longer tell when a player actually got their gift achievement, as Blizzard removed the Feat of Strength achievement timestamps from the API (but left them on armory and in game).

The term "spirit" and "soul" mean the same thing. Does that mean "chi" is the use of one's own soul as a magical energy source?TY
In Warcraft "Spirit" is one of the elemental forces, not just a synonym for "soul." (DaveKosak)
