Thank you for your patience.

Patch 9.2 PTR - Monk Set Bonus Changes

Greetings, monastic adherents. As you test the set bonuses on PTR, some notes and known issues:

  • Mistweaver 4pc has a known issue which causes it to break Soothing Mist after drinking Thunder Focus Tea. This issue will be resolved in a future build.
  • Brewmaster 4pc will be redesigned in a future build. We’ve heard your feedback that you’d prefer a more focused bonus and will be acting on that desire.

Patch 9.2 PTR - Shadow Priest Set Bonus Changes

Greetings priests,

The Shadow bonuses, specifically the 2-piece bonus, are going to undergo some changes based off the feedback provided. To start, the 2-piece bonus will move its focus to Devouring Plague. As the only spender in the Shadow Priest rotation, and with the abundance of Insanity in the Shadow kit, it seems like a good hook to pivot to. The 4-piece will remain largely unchanged, however, Your Shadow will swap their current single target channel for one that favors AoE situations as well. Thank you for the feedback and we’re eager to hear your thoughts on the next iteration.

Patch 9.2 PTR - Restoration Druid Set Bonus Changes

Hey there druids,

Both the 2-piece and 4-piece bonuses for Restoration will be changed for a future build. Thank you for your feedback and we’ll continue to watch the ongoing conversations!

Patch 9.2 PTR - Paladin Set Bonus Changes
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker)
Hello Paladins,

We’re looking into reports of the Protection Paladin 4 piece bonus not properly casting Judgment when it should be. The intent of this bonus is that it does cast a real Judgment when it triggers - debuff, Holy Power, and damage. Also worth noting, in a coming build, its internal cooldown will be increased from .1 seconds up to 1 second. This will help keep the bonus’s power from scaling out of control when tanking large numbers of enemies at once, while still rewarding the intuitive behavior of “trying to block as many things as you can.”

With regards to the Retribution 2 piece, it is a bug that the set’s Seraphim overwrites an active Seraphim. The intent is that it will extend one, so the value of the 2 piece is consistent whether you are running Seraphim or not.

Patch 9.2 Hotfixes - December 1

  • Priest
    • Fixed an issue where Pallid Command (Runecarving Power) would not trigger on hit and was instead triggering on cast.
    • Shadow
      • Fixed an issue where two Rattling Mages summoned from Pallid Command (Runecarving Power) could spawn unintentionally.
      • Fixed an issue where canceling the Pallid Command aura would not despawn the Rattling Mage.

Sepulcher of the First Ones Encounter Journal
The Sepulcher of the First Ones encounter journal was updated in this build, to include more boss descriptions and a more filled out description of the Jailer encounter.

    • Deep in the Sepulcher of the First Ones lies the key to unlock the Jailer’s plans. Gather the power of the First Ones as you pursue Zovaal into the Sepulcher and fight through his forces—but first, you must face Anduin, and discover a way to resist the Jailer’s terrifying Domination magic.

Zereth Mortis
Zereth Mortis was created by the First Ones as a workshop to create afterlives. Its denizens—the automa—have built all that exists in the Shadowlands. It is a strange, otherworldly location that defies all concepts of reality or physics. The Jailer intends to use the secrets of Zereth Mortis to reshape reality and bend it to his malevolent will.
  • New Reputation: The Enlightened
    • The Enlightened are brokers that arrived on Zereth Mortis a long time ago. They no longer see their world in a transactional manner, but instead they treat their dwelling as a sacred place, and hope to answer to a higher calling—the pursuit of knowledge. Find common ground with The Enlightened to succeed and defend Zereth Mortis.
  • Cypher of the First Ones
    • The automa of Zereth Mortis speak in a musical language that is incomprehensible to mortal races. Team up with a curious automa sidekick in this new progression system to learn the lost language of the Progenitors and delve deeper into the secrets of Zereth Mortis, unlocking an array of new zone activities, daily quests, events, and rewards.
      • Developers’ note: This feature is currently under development so any aspects being discussed could be subject to change.
  • New World Boss: Antros, Keeper of the Antecedents located on Antecedent Isle in Zereth Mortis.
  • New World Quests are available after completing Chapter 2 of the new campaign.
  • New Haven and Dimensional Falls questlines.
  • New rares and treasures to discover.
    • Developers’ note: Zereth Mortis rewards and combat tuning are still under development.

Restoration Shaman Tier Set Update

Hi all,

We’re planning to take the Restoration bonus back into the workshop and change it up for a future build. We want it to encourage you to Chain Heal sometimes and be rewarded for doing so, but the current 2-piece bonus is a little more passive than we think it could be. Many people have expressed dislike of the 4-piece bonus, so we’re going to change that up more substantially. Thanks for the feedback, and looking forward to seeing your thoughts on its coming iteration when we have more details.

  • Warrior
    • Shattering Throw will no longer deal extra damage beyond the absorb shield when breaking large absorbs.

WoW Classic Era and Season of Mastery

  • Niby the Almighty now properly teaches the Inferno spell to Warlocks.

Legion Paragon Boxes Bad Luck Protection System
Reddit user kr3b5 has stocked up on Legion Reputation Tokens and used them in Patch 9.1.5 with the combined 27% reputation buff from Pilgrim's Bounty and WoW's 17th Anniversary, in order to get several Paragon Boxes.


Opening these boxes rewarded him with the paragon mounts and toy that he needed to complete the collection, however a few more showed up in the mailbox.

Legion Paragon Boxes - Rewards

Judging by the number of rewards that dropped and the fact that they were guaranteed drops from further opening more paragon boxes, it is very likely that Blizzard stealthily introduced a bad luck protection system to Legion Paragon Boxes in Patch 9.1.5.


Please note that nothing is 100% confirmed yet, hopefully Blizzard shares more about this potential change soon.

Sephuz Leaves Blizzard Entertainment
John "Sephuz" Yang announced his departure from Blizzard Entertainment last week.

  • Sephuz first joined Blizzard in 2011 as a test analyst and later became involved in the development of Diablo 3, working on the Barbarian, Demon Hunter and the Witch Doctor classes through Reaper of Souls.
  • In World of Warcraft, he worked on designing abilities, talents, and items for all classes, and lead the design of the Legendary Items in Legion and the Essence System in Battle for Azeroth.
  • In Hearthstone, he led the design of systems and features such as the progression system, rewards, quests, battle pass, new and returning player experience, ranked modes, matchmaking, achievements, and social.
  • His last work at Blizzard as a Lead System Designer is on an unannounced game, which we'll hopefully hear more about next year. Meanwhile, we wish John Yang all the best on his next journey!



References to Sephuz can be found in both Diablo and World of Warcraft: Yang's Recurve, Yang's Other Recurve, Memory of Sephuz and Sephuz's Secret. Although Sephuz named the legendary ring after himself, it was actually the last item that he needed in order to complete his collection!
