  • Meeting Stones can now be used to summon appropriately-leveled party members for the associated dungeon(s).
  • There is now a PvP realm available.

As a reminder, the following planned Seasonal changes are not yet active in the Season of Mastery Beta, and will be tested in future Beta updates:

  • Increased Debuff and Buff limits.
  • Increased health for raid bosses.
  • Restored raid boss mechanics.
  • Removal of world buffs in raid instances.
  • Adjustments to curtail powerleveling and boosting.

Thank you!

Finkle Einhorn Renamed to Pip Quickwit
DesMephisto has noticed that Finkle Einhorn, the gnome that teleports you to Blackrock Caverns, has been renamed to Pip Quickwit. This name change extends outside the game into Hearthstone as well as in the tooltip for the Finkle's Lava Dredger item in game.

    when you start renaming everything,changing pictures on wall from a busty toon to a bowl of fruit to me its doing a bit to much. renaming because of employe who were charged with misconduct is a thing but renaming because of a joke in a movie. what happen in the past is part of history and we learn from it. erasing what we did wrong wont change anything.even removing the flirt and other emote for me is to much

    More stupid changes for the sake of stupid changes. But the DLC comic, and the character named anus tart, was quite entertaining.

    The joke in question.

    But he Tweeted that if you argue with this waste of time then you should go fuck yourself! Obviously you hate trans people if you don't 100% agree!

    No reasonable person would be offended by the jokes in ace ventura. (Yes, I'm saying Des Mephisto is not a reasonable person)

    1. The individual in the film is not portrayed as evil because she/he is trans (actually, they're not really trans technically). So the villain being evil shouldn't be any more "transphobic" than having an evil white villain in a film is racist against white people.

    2. Yes, he's disgusted when he learns the biological sex of the person he made out with. Newsflash: most straight men would react this way. I'd imagine most straight women would be disgusted to make out with a biological woman too. This is reality. It's not "trans people are disgusting" it's "me making out with somebody of the gender/sex opposite the one I'm attracted to is disgusting to me".

    lol, who is Des Mephisto? Some nice virtue signalling there though! 5 stars. Would read and feel morally inferior again.

    The Finkle Einhorn change is good. After a recent rewatch of Ace Ventura with my Daughter, the joke has not aged well and was very cringe/not appropriate. If you feel the integrity of the game has been compromised due to this change, then you should grow some thicker skin.

    This Desmephisto dude or whatever seems really pathetic.

    I'm not here to be in favor or against that change, but this line actually cracks me up, here.

    I mean, people want a character's name changed because it's a reference to an old joke but it's the others who need to grow a thicker skin?

    Finally people are safe from pop culture references.

    Lol, implying that 80/90's film/tv has aged well at all and isn't straight up cringe to begin with. I mean Jim Carry pretty much has his picture in the dictionary right besides the word cringe.

    To these people, if you object to kissing a man that dresses and calls himself a woman, then you are a transphobe.

    Suck the female penis, bigot

    Trans rights are human rights.
    Lmao. I don't see any reasonable human being offended.
    Only slowflakes could be offended after such a thing, a pop culture reference.

    I guess that genocide and holocaust is fine in WoW.
