Lionheart Season of Mastery Realm Temporarily Offline due to Transfer Exploit
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
UPDATED 4:23 p.m. PST – December 3, 2021

The Lionheart (AU) Season of Mastery Realm has been returned to service and is available for play.

During this downtime, we tracked down every character that transferred to the realm and began the process of returning them to their origin and reversing their actions. That work is still underway, and we will continue to ensure that no items or economic impacts remain on Lionheart.

Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.



11:00 a.m. PST

We’ve temporarily disabled the Lionheart (AU) Season of Mastery realm while we take our next steps to address the transfer bug experienced on that realm.

We’ll provide further updates here as soon as possible.

Earlier today, on the Lionheart Season of Mastery Realm, players have noticed characters riding the Black Qiraji Battle Tank mount and wearing best in slot gear from PvP and Naxxramas.

It looks like the "exploit" to transfer a character from WoW Classic to WoW SoM was available for quite a while, which was enough time to make a huge impact in both the economy and PvP.

Patch 9.2 Eternity's End PTR - Cypher Progression System Preview
Today we are having an early look at the Cypher of the First Ones Progression System from Patch 9.2 Eternity's End PTR.

Disclaimer: Please note that all the following progression systems are a work in progress, the content is not available for testing yet and many spells are currently placeholders. A few perks also seem to be missing, such as the ones that unlock flying in Zereth Mortis and the ability to wear 2 legendaries at the same time.

Patch 9.2 PTR - Sylvanas VO
Last night's PTR build added some spoilers from Sylvanas.

Thank you for your patience.

Patch 9.2 PTR - Monk Set Bonus Changes
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker)
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
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker)
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.

    • 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.

  • New wild pets to capture in Zereth Mortis.

Player vs Player
  • New Brawl: Solo Shuffle
    • The Solo Shuffle brawl pits six players (two healers, four damage dealers) against each other in exciting 3v3 Arena matches. As the name implies, you can only queue for this brawl solo. Play a series of short matches as teams are shuffled and earn rewards based on your performance.

Professions
  • Rare Crafted Equipment recipes now have an additional Optional Reagent slot.
  • New Recipes (All of these new recipes and reagents can be found on the Craftataur NPC in Oribos during the 9.2 PTR)

    • This setting allows you to mouse over a unit frame and cast a spell on that character without targeting them.
    • Access this setting under Interface Options → Combat.

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.

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.
