WoW Classic - Hotfix for Demoralizing Shout/Roar Threat
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker)

In addition, we’ve also identified a fix for a separate issue that was causing Battle Shout and most healing spells, effects, and buffs to incorrectly split the threat they generate between enemies that had members of the buffed party on their threat list.

Hotfixes for these issues are going to be deployed very soon, at which time all of these effects will match their functionality in the 1.12 reference client.

Free Character Moves Starting Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. PDT

From -> To
  • Benediction -> Heartseeker
  • Bigglesworth -> Anathema
  • Blaumeux -> Anathema
  • Faerlina -> Heartseeker
  • Fairbanks -> Arcanite Reaper
  • Grobbulus -> Deviate Delight
  • Herod -> Earthfury

  • Kromcrush -> Earthfury

  • Stalagg -> Heartseeker
  • Sulfuras -> Heartseeker
  • Thalnos -> Earthfury
  • Thunderfury -> Arcanite Reaper
  • Westfall -> Windseeker
  • Whitemane -> Arcanite Reaper

We expect these free character moves to remain open until 11:00 a.m. PDT (2:00 a.m. EDT) on Monday, September 16. Please note that restrictions apply:

  • A character cannot move if the character:
    • is a guild leader.
    • has active auction listings or bids.
    • has mail.
  • You may be required to change your character’s name once you’ve reached the destination realm.
  • You cannot move a character to a PvP realm where you already have a character belonging to the opposing faction.
  • This is a one-way, irreversible move. Blizzard Customer Support cannot monitor or modify a free character move.

During periods of high usage, free character moves may take up to several hours to complete. This service may be closed at any time, without warning, should a destination realm become full. We strongly encourage players who wish to use this service, especially in coordinated groups, to do so as soon as possible.

Thank you!

When: September 10-17
Where: Outside Ironforge and Orgrimmar

Commemorate those who have sacrificed their lives to help friends and allies. Feasts are also held outside Ironforge and Orgrimmar in honor of these fallen heroes.

This Week: Arena Skirmishes
All week, from anywhere in Azeroth, open the Group Finder (default hotkey: i), select the Player vs. Player tab on the bottom of the window, and then under Casual, choose Arena Skirmish and JOIN BATTLE. You’ll be matched up with teammates and provided with opponents to kill in the Arena. You can also queue for a Premade group or create your own group within the Premade tab.

Look for the following all week long:

  • Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar and in Boralus has a quest for you–The Arena Calls. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it from within the Adventure Journal.
    • Quest requirement: Win 10 Arena PvP Skirmishes
    • Reward: A PvP loot box
  • Passive buff: +50% honor gains from Skirmishes

If you’ve been looking to make some Honor gains, this is the week to do it!
