Can we get faster que timer pops please? waiting 30-45 mins a match just seems nutty

Legion Tuning Hotfix Live at 7pm PST on 3/8
A hotfix has been deployed to Alpha that will have significant impact on damage overall in PvP. Weapon damage, armor and secondary stats were incorrectly set for each class. Weapon damage was set to an extremely high value resulting in too much damage, especially from classes with fast attack speeds. In addition, we initially wanted secondary stats to be evenly distributed so that we can tune each spec appropriately based on feedback. You should now see an equal amount of each secondary stat when in PvP. Finally, armor was set to 4000 for all specializations resulting in some specs having too much armor.

All of these issues have been fixed in the current version of Alpha. We look forward to hearing your feedback. Thanks! (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

DoT Spells Interrupting Actions
Currently Dots are breaking Flag Caps and drinks. There is no way this is intended right with Corruption being 60 sec timer on players you can kill a solo defending lock and as long as he had corruption on you no way you are capping the node before he spawns. same thing with drinks you get out of combat to drink and the dots force break drinking I know every healer is going to hate this in arena.
Thanks for the report. Do you know if a specific spell did this to you or have you had this experience with all damage over time effects? (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Feral Druid Feedback -- Build 21232 -- 3-Mar
Re: The cooldown on 'powershifting':

This is indeed a philosophy change from live. Druids have been, and will continue to be, exceptionally good at breaking roots/snares. But that should be tied to shapeshifting, not macroing into skipping the shapeshift. It will provide better counterplay if there’s some cost (albeit still spammable and small) to shifting out of roots and snares. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

We reevaluated the method we were doing this by in 6.2, finding that most people were just confused by it and it didn't affect balance in any significant way, so we changed it. Your secondary stat ratings should add up to a consistent value no matter what the combination is from here on out. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Ability Damage in PvP
We've discovered a bug where weapon damage is being calculated incorrectly in our PvP stat templates. A lot of damage is overtuned as a result. We're working on fix it as soon as possible. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Ashran in Legion
Level 110 players will be able to queue for Ashran from the UI in Legion. It will work similar to battlegrounds, you can queue with up to 5 players. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

[Request] Equal Gear for Factions/Vendor
Can we get a vendor or something so we can have equal gear regaurdless of which faction we choose?

It's kind of weird how Horde and Alliance Shadow Priests have different gear. Alliance gets the RPPM caster DPS trinket, while horde gets the on-use versatility caster trinket. Not to mention for whatever reason, I have 2% more crit on Horde, but 5% more haste on Alliance before BG scaling.

Are there any other cases of this or just Shadow Priests? (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Greatly reduced skill plays?
At least for warrior, there seems to be nothing. No spell reflects, no fear, no intervene. It seems like all of our pvp talents are just "more ways to deal damage" with maybe 2 or 3 exceptions. When I look through other dps classes it seems mostly the same. Most every class has become a gigantic damage bot with little else to offer. Especially from a tournament standpoint it seems like a very *boring* route to take. I dunno. Maybe I'm wrong.
There are some specializations we agree may feel "flat" with lack of utility tools right now on alpha. It would be useful for us to hear which specializations testers feel are in a bad/good/too good spot in that regard (with reasons why).

While the gameplay of specializations without PvP talents is important, it's most useful to us to hear feedback with full PvP talents. Some specs may feel flat baseline, but with talents feel like they're in a good/too good spot. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Demon Hunter (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)
Demon Hunters and Flag Carrying
Demon Hunters are able to zoom across the map before it even has time to appear on the mini map. Timed it and it was 23 seconds from point of pick up to capture. Is it worth stunting their mobility like several other abilities while carrying the flag? It isn't fun when the flag is picked up and then captured before you really have time to react.
Agreed. We're making changes very soon. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Priest (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)
Discipline Priest Feedback -- Build 21232 -- 3-Mar
Note that AoE damage spells don't (by default) fall off after 6 targets; that's only healing spells. For damage it's a much higher number of targets.

Correct though, the bulk of the value of Divine Star and Halo is still in the direct healing effect. Their gameplay is still meant to be focused on their use as healing spells when it comes to aiming/positioning. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Rogue (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)
Outlaw Rogue Feedback -- Build 21232 -- 3-Mar
Do we have everything available to us atm? I miss a few of the "combat" spec had. As far as lvling goes and using Roll the Bones, its fun in the world, but i can see where it will be a hinder in a raid environment, to busy seeing what buff you got (miss an interrupt, stand in some poo, ect).
The intention is not for you to keep fishing for the lucky 5-buff Roll the Bones. If you have theorycraft indicating that it's optimal to keep using Roll the Bones, when you already have a buff (apart from the Health one), we'd love to review that. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Warlock (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)
Demonology Warlock Feedback -- Build 21232 -- 3-Mar
I havent seen anyone talk about this but it seems that the dreadstalker imps are hitting significantly harder then imps summoned from impending doom and hand of guldan. Also they are not scaling with the infernal furnace tallent.
The Dreadstalker riders should 100% count the same as, and deal the same damage as, regular wild imps. There are just likely some bugs with that. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

The minor tuning changes last build were intended to move a small amount of healing from Wild Growth to Rejuvenation, and to slightly increase costs overall due to the class's currently high efficiency, especially on a single target (the latter part is mostly represented by the Swiftmend change). But, we agree the simultaneous healing and cost increase on Rejuvenation looks like it fights against the mastery. Next build will move Rejuvenation's healing and cost slightly back down. Both changes are quite small, but should be noticeable on a spell as frequently used as Rejuvenation. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Hey! How about some early alpha Holy Paladin numbers? https://t.co/PDYl5SxkUG
Good data/feedback. What % of the LotM damage were you counting as negative healing? (Celestalon)
For my stats, 265% SP (450 / 1.3 from stoicism, 1.15 from Knight of the Silver Hand, 1.02 from vers). Is that what you mean?
It sounded like you were counting some of the damage taken against its healing, as if it were negative healing. What % of it? (Celestalon)
Not really a percent of the healing, I did 450% * crit * mast * vers - 265%
Right, so if it heals for ~40k, and damages you for 15k, the effective healing is somewhere between 25k and 40k. (Celestalon)
Clearly, neither of those extremes is reasonable in practice. Factor in things like Overhealing to help, but still subjective. (Celestalon)
Right and in a situation where we know we won't take lots of damage, but a specific target will, LotM is strong.
Aye. At a minimum, any overhealing you'd have received following it is no longer overhealing. (Celestalon)
Yep. Being able to play with it in raids and with predictable damage will help to see its potential
Indeed. So which does your data reflect, 25k, 40k, or somewhere in the middle? (Celestalon)
Both HPM and HPCT are based on the 25k. I usually try do any outside tuning based on logs, which I don't really have yet.
OK, so that data is worst case, got it. Thanks. (Celestalon)

Any chance on removing the premade tab for Ashran? Looking at both horde/alliance - it's filled with tons of premade groups. Sad

There isn't a ton of motivation to work with a group of strangers when the game can just find you another group trivially. (OccupyGStreet)

Computers - Setup of the Month
Each month or so we will post a couple of hardware setups for those of you who are thinking of upgrading their computer!

This month
The current SSD prices are fairly flat right now, with most SSDs under $0.50 per gigabyte when on sale. New GPUs may be coming towards the middle of this year

Depending on how much you want to overclock, you may need to spend a bit more for a better CPU cooler like the NH-D15.

Unless you are doing a lot of video rendering or streaming, you do not need the 6700K and should spend that money elsewhere.

Make sure to keep your AMD and Nvidia drivers up to date.

Those aren't mutually exclusive though. We gain better knowledge of server capability, crashes, queues, all that stuff, by actually stressing the server.

We've raised the cap a bit just now, and we'll continue to monitor server stability. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Death Knight (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)
Death Knights and Rune Forging
These are good questions and we will discuss. Currently, no enchants offer any benefit but Rune Forge Enchants are a part of the Death Knight class. Whether we allow them in PvP or not, we will tune the class's PvP stats based on whether those enchants work or not. (Official Forums)

Death Knight Feedback
Festering Wounds just simply do not work in PvP, useless mechanic and so is Death Strike, give us back Siphon, thanks.
Festering Wounds shouldn't be dispellable as it is too central to the spec's functionality. We've already made this change for the next release. (Official Forums)

Light of the Protector currently heals almost like a Lay on hands. Might want to take a look into that.

Retribution Paladin Feedback -- Build 21232 -- 3-Mar
Equality -- This ability needs to go. Degenerate gameplay will only ensue from this. Purposefully forcing a player to take damage & causing heart-attacks for Healers is not cool or interesting. It's infuriating. I can't imagine what Equality encourages and causes to be objectively better than what its setting out to achieve. Neat idea, VERY bad gameplay. I think we have enough of that take-damage-deal-damage paradigm as is via Shield of Vengeance – at least this encourages us to stay alive and simultaneously reward that effort.
I think this talent touches on a handful of topics about class design philosophy. It's a great example of talent design that doesn't fit today's norm, but in a good way - and in a way that we need more of, not less. The topics I see in play here are philosophies about what role talents play, the mechanics of a talent that require a player to take damage, and possibly the location of the talent in the tree.

In a forum discussion, we tend to get lost in the mechanics of an ability. This is true not only because the most well-spoken players on our forums are organized raiders with personalities that lean toward the analytical, but also because the nature of a forum lends itself to considering theoretical use cases more than the actual moment-to-moment experience of playing the game.

In my actual experience of playing a ret paladin in Legion content, I'd say that equality might just be the most fun and gratifying talent in the tree. It's gleefully fun when you end up in a situation that would have resulted in your death to hit the button and watch your enemies go from nearly full to dead. As much as an expert player might imagine that such a situation never applies to them, the reality is that it does (and more so in Legion world content than in the recent past). Beyond that, it's fun to occasionally manufacture exactly that situation.

It's important to recognize that so much of World of Warcraft resides outside the confines of reliably topping a damage meter in a 10 player raid. This is particularly true once again in Legion, where we anticipate that players will spend far more time in non-raid content than they have in recent years due to the role of 5-player dungeons and world quests (fueled by the general possibility of getting an item upgrade from any content in the game), and of course pvp. As such, it's important that we view talent design through the lens of "not everything will or should be the most efficient path to victory in a raid".

As to the mechanics of this talent, many players balk at the group play implications of a talent that assumes you've taken a bunch of damage, comparing that with a variety of other mechanics we've had in the game at one point or another that encouraged a player to take damage. For content that isn't particularly challenging, it tends to be a non-issue (if you want to potentially get yourself killed, have at it). As it relates to challenging content, our experience suggests that frequency is a meaningful part of this equation, and if in challenging content healers are stressed it also implies that the stress is as a result of players taking damage that is out of their control, which also implies that over the course of an encounter a reasonable opportunity to use the ability without deliberately manufacturing the conditions will arise due to its long cooldown.

In addition, from a purely mathematical perspective the ability does (or at least should) hold up if you use it around every 7 minutes or so, enough to provide some slush to account for the situational nature of the spell. In addition, the talent nets meaningful damage over time and should/does hold up against the other talents in the tier.

Equality is not a fun ability to use in any practical sense outside of PvP or solo content.
Many players will likely not agree with this statement. Fortunately, there doesn't need to be universal or widespread agreement.

I can't imagine any practical sense where I'm going to request my healers let me drop horrendously low to optimize my damage with this ability, and I know I'm not going to be the only one in high end raiding guilds feeling the same way.
Great, that's why it's a talent. Choose a different talent.

The alternatives on the tier simply aren't that great either from a gameplay stance, as Gomak elaborated on, as none of them change up how you play and simply add passive benefits..
Totally fair, and while it isn't possible to get every talent in a tier to be interesting to every individual, we certainly do want there to be a choice on any given tier that you find cool. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Warrior (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)
[Feedback: Warriors]
Philosophically we're okay if some of the core talents aren't super nail biting choices all the time for PvP. I think in an ideal world every core talent and honor talent is an interesting choice in all aspects of the game, but if talents such as War Paint become the de facto talent in PvP (not saying it is or isn't right now) it's not that big of deal to us. It's challenging to create core talents that are competitive, interesting choices in PvE let alone both PvE and PvP.

Our design direction with Arms vs Fury is that Arms should have more burst or "frontload" damage, while Fury is stronger at sustained and has better mobility. While Fury does take more damage while enraged, that's being factored into the balance of the spec overall. You'll have higher health and self-healing. (Note: Tuning is still in progress)

Regarding mobility, it's very much a hot topic with us currently. Arcane Mages and Sub Rogues are engineered by us to have some of the highest escape tools out of the specs, but they're intended to be glass cannons and countered by specs that can dampen their burst damage (Tank specs, Paladins) or where their escape tools aren't as strong (Warlocks, Hunters). That said, their mobility/escape may be too out of line right now and may need changes. If we're going to do mobility changes it's likely going to be us toning down the stronger specs rather than buffing the weaker ones. (Official Forums)

Our general plan is to test every encounter on Heroic difficulty first, and then test sections of the raid on Normal and Raid Finder, alongside targeted Mythic tests. Apologies for the short notice, but we needed to ensure build stability. If you can't make this testing window, these bosses will be retested, likely more than once, in the future.

As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of an alpha environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the boss being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.

Q: How do I get into the raid zone?

A: In Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade Sr. in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)

Q: What character should I use to test the raid?

A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 110 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.

Q: How long does testing last?

A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

Levels 1-10: 750 honor
Levels 11-20: 875 honor
Levels 21-30: 1000 honor
Levels 31-40: 1125 honor
Levels 41-50: 1250 honor

In total, it takes 50,000 honor to reach level 50.

Okay! good to know it will scale higher, will is also get higher each prestige level?
That is not the plan at this time but certainly worth considering. (Official Forums)


PvP Testing in Legion has Begun
We need to gather a lot of data and feedback about the experience of leveling up in the new honor system. Currently, we haven't completed a full pass on tuning class and artifact abilities, so balance is going to be a bit off. Certainly, we want to hear about spells that do extreme amounts of damage or healing to the degree they make testing unattractive for you. But you should expect balance to be far from perfect.

Secondary Stat Scaling in Legion
The point I'm getting at is that if primary stats have no diminishing returns like secondaries, the ratio of primary to secondary will mean that THE BEST piece of gear at the end of the game will always simply be the highest ilevel.
Because your primary stat is just so much stronger than the secondary stat values.

Primary stats are of additive value. Secondary stats are of multiplicative value. This is why Primaries are more valuable toward the start of an expansion (raising your base damage early on, when you don't have much base damage), and Secondaries are more valuable toward the end of an expansion (when you've already got a high base damage, so it's more valuable to raise the multiplier on that high base damage). This change will make them more equal throughout the whole expansion. Regardless, we almost never make you choose between Primary and Secondaries.

We're still tweaking the exact rating conversions and coefficients to get the desired effect. It's already changed a bit since that build was made (rating conversions will be 275/300/300/350 in the next build, instead of the 227/250/250/295 they are in the current alpha).

EDIT: Added further clarification. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Schism is indeed meant to improve Atonement healing; that is fixed in the next build. It will also be buffed to compete better with Castigation.

It is intended that Divine Star and Halo only Atone once per cast--this allows them to deal AoE damage without resulting in overpowered Atonement healing in multi-target situations. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Not a bug. It gives you the buffs of whichever symbol you roll the most of. Multiples happen when there are ties.

I don't see why it couldn't be done again. (OccupyGStreet)
I meant the Hardmode buttons and teleportation. It was exciting, but is that a recipe you can re-use?
Hard mode, no. We were already low on ideas after Ulduar so we moved to a UI button. (OccupyGStreet)

on that word - Describe a boss if you could design one :P I'm honestly curious
I always wanted to do a multi headed dragon. Maybe even 2 heads. No, not Chromaggus. (OccupyGStreet)
Or even Megaera?
Chimaeron's heads weren't super relevant to the fight, and Megaera felt like separate creatures. (OccupyGStreet)
I'm imaging more like a traditional Vael fight with a split raid or head phases or something. (OccupyGStreet)

We have another alpha build going up today, with some exciting updates:

  • New Specialization Unlocked – We have 1 additional specialization ready for testing. We’d love any and all feedback about gameplay, artifact quest line, abilities, etc.
    • Feral Druid
  • Class Status – We’re continuing to iterate on our class abilities and talents, based on testing and feedback. This build has many revisions scattered around the classes, but here are some highlights:
    • Retribution Paladins – More talent revisions have been made, their Mastery has been tweaked, along with a variety of bugfixes to Haste affecting rotational abilities. Conviction has also been turned into a talent.
    • Marksmanship Hunters – A few significant talent changes have occurred.
    • Subtlety Rogues – Many changes to talents and base abilities to adjust rotational speed.
    • Destruction Warlocks – Mastery tweaked.
    • Outlaw Rogues – Roll the Bones has received some additional new changes.
    • Demonology Warlocks – Infernals’ and Doomguards’ damage has been significantly increased (warning: they’re likely *too* strong now, and will be toned back soon).
  • Level 110 PvP Realm – A new alpha realm has opened up, which includes:
    • Level 110 Character Templates: Fully upgraded artifacts and ilvl 810 PvP Gear.
    • No access to Legion outdoor zones except for Dalaran.
    • Full access to the new Honor System at level 110, including PvP talents and prestiging. You’ll be able to earn honor, increase honor level, and unlock PvP talents. No PvP gear will be rewarded yet.
    • Battlegrounds are available for queuing, with the exception of Alterac Valley and Isle of Conquest. Skirmishes, Ashran, Rated Battlegrounds, War Games, and all Arenas are unavailable.
    • Secondary Stats on Level 110 Gear – We've modified how Secondary Stats are itemized on gear at level 110, to get players up to the levels of secondary stats that feel good, earlier on. Full mathy details for the theorycrafters here: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/20742704730

Thanks, and we look forward to your feedback!

Also, check out the design notes from the previous build, if you haven't already as well: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/20742774078

Outlaw Rogues – Roll the Bones has received some additional new changes

Is it possible you can elaborate on what has changed? Testing RtB buff proc rates and breakdowns is a pretty substantial undertaking[/i]

Nothing changed with the proc rate. Just the effects, and some visuals changed.

Secondary Stat Scaling in Legion
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
Warning, this post is mathy. You do not need to know/understand any of this to succeed in Legion. This is purely for the curious math-oriented players who want to know how things work.

Secondary stats are going to scale a little differently in Legion. There are a few goals here.

  • Get players to the 'feels good' level of secondary stats sooner. (A Fire Mage doesn't feel so good with 5% crit.)
  • Reduce the feeling of being nerfed as you level up.
  • Reduce the degree that players scale exponentially, especially at high gear levels.
  • Don't reduce the degree of stat customization that players have.
  • Ensure that players still can't get to crazy levels of stats that break the game, or reduce fun.

Using purely ballpark numbers, players in Warlords started their endgame experience with about 15% of their favorite stat, and 7.5% of the other stats, resulting in a total multiplier from secondary stats of about 1.54. By the end of the expansion, they had something like 50% of their favorite stat, and 20% of the other stats, resulting in a total multiplier from secondary stats of about 3.11. This effect is even more pronounced for tanks and healers, due to Bonus Armor and Spirit being an additional extra-strong multiplier. And since stats on gear scale exponentially with ilvl, that transition started off slow, then ramped up quickly near the end, spending very little time in the sweet spot in the middle.

For Legion, we'll be making some changes to these systems, in order to improve this situation. Here's what we've done in the latest Alpha build:

  • Conversion rates of Rating->% for secondary stats will not go up as much as they otherwise would, by a huge margin. The conversion rates will end up at 110 at less than half of what they otherwise would have, resulting in Legion dungeon blue gear providing over double the total secondary stat %s, as the it did in prior expansions.
  • Starting at ilvl 800, the exponential curve for secondary stats will be significantly reduced, nearly to being linear (this is per-item, not related to the character's average item level). Primary stats and Stamina will continue to scale exponentially with ilvl at the same rate as before. This will mean that players retain all of the same customization they had, but with secondary stat %s not scaling higher than they had before, by the end of the expansion.

The removal of multistrike also affects this, reducing how multiplicative the total system is, while further concentrating stats into the other 4. That will mean that in dungeon blues, a player may have 30% of their favorite stat, and 15% of the other stats, resulting in a multiplier of 1.78. By the end of the expansion, they may have 50% of their favorite stat, and 20% of the other stats, same as before, for a total multiplier of 2.59. The net result is that the multiplier difference between start and end is drastically reduced, and players spend the vast majority of the expansion in the ranges that feel best, while primary stats still scaling exponentially ensures that player power grows as needed to feel rewarding.

Feedback on how this feels once you get to start playing with a variety of gear levels will be especially valuable. Thanks!

EDIT: Clarified one part.

Is this something already implemented that we will be able to get a feel for in lvl 110 dungeons or raid testing without lvl 110 being open yet in Alpha?
Yes, this is implemented in today's Alpha build.

Has the way Armor increases with item level changed?
There were some tweaks in this build to armor coefficient by level, mostly to smooth out the 100 to 103 range, where there was previously a sharp drop in armor effectiveness.

How will this be implemented for trinkets with scaling procs? Will this be implemented as a change to the prop point table above level 110 dungeon blues ilvl or something else?
The trinket's item level will determine the rate at which the secondary stat is scaled. Essentially, the proc will be subject to the same rules as if it passively existed on the item for its duration.

How exactly is the ilvl relationship with secondaries changing post ilvl 800? Feel free to post actual math.
I believe dataminers will find a new gametable with the exact coefficients for each ilvl.

EDIT: Yep, that's the one (see immediately following post).

A large enough ilvl difference has always been enough to beat different secondary stats, and that will only be a little moreso the case than before.

This change doesn't make higher ilvl gear less rewarding, just skews that reward toward the primary stats, so that the value of primaries (additive) and secondary (multiplicative) stay in sync, and secondaries don't scale out of control. It doesn't take much; the skewing is on the order of 0.66% per ilvl difference. But that exponential factor adds up over the course of an expansion, which this avoids.

With this change, will the ilevel difference before secondary stats don't matter be significantly smaller compared to live, or will it only be maybe one or two less than currently? (I know this is really general since is different for different specs)
It's small. Something like 5-15% less than it was before. So if that threshold for you was 10-15ilvls, it may be 9-13ilvls in Legion.

Players typically compare items within a relatively tight slice (probably within 20ilvls), where this change has a relatively minor impact. This change only has a large impact on a grand scale like over the course of a whole expansion.

In the upcoming Patch 6.2.4, we're moving to a new Battle.net infrastructure. There are changes to many of the Battle.net-related Lua APIs, including Battle.net friends and Battle.net chat. If you maintain an AddOn that makes use of those features, you may want to log in to the PTR and test that your AddOn still functions correctly. To help AddOn authors troubleshoot potential compatibility issues, we’ve highlighted a few of the big changes to help direct you to areas that may need your attention.

Conversations
Support for conversations has been removed. This includes all C-functions (BNCreateConversation, BNGetConversationInfo, etc.) as well as all Lua/XML references to conversations.

Toons
The new Battle.net architecture doesn’t have the concept of “Toons”. Instead, we refer to “GameAccounts”. As a result, many functions with “Toon” in the name now refer to “GameAccount”
Examples:
BNGetToonInfo -> BNGetGameAccountInfo
BNGetFriendToonInfo -> BNGetFriendGameAccountInfo
BNGetNumFriendToons -> BNGetNumFriendGameAccounts

Presence IDs
Previously, “Presence IDs” could refer to either Battle.net accounts or individual toons. Most functions were able to accept either type of presence ID and, when passed the wrong type, tried to guess at what you were trying to do.

Presence IDs have been replaced with bnetIDAccount and bnetIDGameAccount. With this change, we’ve made all functions strict about whether they accept Account IDs or Game Account IDs. In order to make this easier, all Lua variables have been updated to specify which type of ID they are.

You can translate from a bnetIDGameAccount to a bnetIDAccount as follows:
bnetIDAccount = select(17, BNGetGameAccountInfo(bnetIDGameAccount));
You can find a player’s active bnetIDGameAccount from a bnetIDAccount as follows:
bnetIDGameAccount = select(6, BNGetFriendInfoByID(bnetIDAccount));

Current Realm Name
The “realmName” CVar no longer exists. You can get the name of the current realm using GetRealmName().

Do you mean GetRealmName(), the already-existing function? Or is this a new function that can (or must?) replace GetRealmName()?
The "realmName" CVar is no longer there, but the function to get the name of the current realm is still GetRealmName. Correction made to the post, thanks for asking.

Artifact Traits
There are lots of changes to Artifact Traits in this build, with many new ranks added!
