    From 2 to 4 PM Pacific time (5 to 7 PM Eastern), we’ll be donning our best outfits and strutting our stuff in the brand new Trial of Style event, which is coming in patch 7.2.5. If you’re able to stop by, we’d love for you to join us! Just download the PTR, copy your character, and find Flaskataur in Stormwind or Orgrimmar. He’ll have an option to queue for “Mog Week Tournament" – select that, and you’re off!

    Note: due to the way PTR character copies work, you’ll most likely be missing some appearances on the PTR that you’ve unlocked on live realms. As the saying goes, “Make it work!”

    Of course, we’ll be participating as well. You’ll know you’re flexing for a Blizzard employee when you see someone in either the or guilds.

    See you then!

    The Anduin quest-line and cinematic is intended to tie together the loose ends with the leadership of the Alliance following the events of the Broken Shore in 7.0.

    It's aimed to be similar in nature to the second cinematic Horde players saw following the 7.0 introduction quests which solidified Sylvanas as the new Warchief of the Horde.

    We're forwarding on the feedback that Horde players are unhappy that Alliance players have a one time source of additional Artifact Power. Thanks for the feedback. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    Affliction MG Changes - Some Transparency?
    We hear you all on Soul Effigy. We’re going to remove it in the next PTR patch. It’s concerning when the community sentiment towards a talent isn’t that it’s overpowered or underpowered, but that everyone is terrified they’re going to have to play that way if it becomes strong.

    It should be understandable how the original concept of Soul Effigy would seem fun in theory, despite it clearly not working out in practice. As an Affliction Warlock, I'm very happy to walk into a 2-target boss fight. At a basic level, you know you're going to get double value out of your DoTs. Walking into a 1-target fight with Soul Effigy just doesn't feel nearly the same. Mechanically, the gameplay of the two situations is very similar, but in the end Soul Effigy doesn't play out well. Could be any of a number of actors - the reduced damage transfer, feeling like the effigy is just there for increased soul shard generation, the usability issues, or the unnaturalness of it as a concept.

    Anyways, it’s gone. Replacement talent to come.
    Thanks for the comment Seph, can you clarify whether Affliction will be receiving the nerf to Soul Conduit or not? The notes said only demo was excluded from the SC nerf however on PTR the talent remains 20% for Aff (the tooltip at least, I have not tested the actual %).
    Soul Conduit should be unchanged for Affliction. Latest patch notes should reflect that.

    This is also further compounded by our current T20 set bonus, which puts a lot of emphasis on drain damage and complete drains - both of which are part of the MG play style, which was just effectively neutered.
    The Tier 20 set bonus for Affliction is changing soon. It won’t be so focused on Drain Soul. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    How to win every transmog event - slutmogs. I honestly got a feeling that will be the way to go, so many horny teenagers that will give you their vote.



    pro tip: be belf male for this, increases the chance to win

    So this is What is going to reward the pandaria CM sets? I worked so hard to earn the set on all classes, only to be re-added as a transmog contest reward..... I dont even....

    Even as an Alliance Player I feel like the Horde are missing out. Why not follow up about Slyvannas?
    As far as I know, pretty much her story is cutoff after the Stormheim questline. Why not continue her story as a Warchief and have her take some responsibility now that she is leader? Just because Anduin's storyline needed more fleshing out, doesnt mean the Horde cant have anything.

    This I agree with, she was never a popular choice to many horde players. For years she's been painted as a self centred individual who cares about her own goals and nothing else yet suddenly Vol'jin's spooky ghost friends are all like " Yeah make her warchief it'll be cool " and nothing comes from it, thus far she's continued down her self centred path via the stormheim storyline even the dark mirror short story she continues to walk the same path.

    So far I still think she's a terrible warchief and I'm failing to see how " She'll be the one to save us " as said by Vol'jin unless she has more upcoming development she'll remain that self centred douchebag with no regard for anyone but herself.

    Brewfest Kodo, Bike competition, 5.3, shall I go on?

    I'm sure there's more I'm forgetting there's many examples of alliance players crying because they didn't get their own way and look how that turned out, they got the brewfest kodo, they got their bike and they got more development for characters, crying pays off, are you surprised it's happening now?

    This is more or less what I was coming to say and why I'm not really excited about the event.

    $10 says that nothing will happen in game until they "hit a switch" because her story is progressed in an outside media which costs $20 by some shit author.

    Yeah, my female Belf is ready to win about every single one of these, if the rewards are good enough to even bother doing it. Think I got some slutmog somewhere, collected a lot of gear during the years of playing.

    Maybe ,just maybe the ones in charge of that particular type of content isn't the same as the ones doing class design. Just a thought.

    Everyone knows there is one super human doing all the content in WoW. And screw him for ever focusing on anything I don't want him to focus on!

    I love how warlocks keep getting responses everyday and paragraph posts of explanations and math behind buffs and nerfs. Must be nice.

    Seriously Blizz??? Freaking Mog-offs? How about guild halls instead?

    SC1 is broken as of now(for me at least). I can't overwrite a group once I assign it to a hotkey(among other issues)... I guess they want you to be frustrated with the crappy old free version so you buy the HD version this summer...

    Guild halls would be such an easy thing to implement(with their current tech) but they can't seem to figure it out.
    If it seems like I am acting stupid, there's probably a good reason for that.

    OK some positives from me for once: that Mogwalk stuff looks great, really creative stuff, also Affliction is one of the specs I play [have 22 toons], and it's great to see them responding this way to feedback. I also have to say, although the latest patch is a bit light, I have been loving levelling alts with invasions and Bgs. It's really amazing the depth of content with the different spec/class campaigns. I am really enjoying it. Thank you Blizzard.
