Boss ‘Fixation’ Bug and Hotfix
Originally Posted by Bashiok (Blue Tracker)
Due to a fix applied earlier today a bug was introduced that is causing bosses which have any ‘fixate’ abilities, meaning those that will fixate on and/or chase a certain player, to not function correctly. This is currently noticeable for most players on Atramedes in normal or heroic, and Ascendant Council and Sinestra on heroic, but affects a great number of other bosses throughout the game.

We have a fix currently in the testing stages but it will require realm restarts to apply. We’re currently anticipating rolling restarts to happen early tomorrow morning during off-peak hours. We apologize for any inconvenience for those attempting bosses tonight with these mechanics.

Guild Challenges Information
Zarhym wrote a couple of blue posts about Guild Challenges, it's not really a preview yet but at least we know where it's going now.

[...] What about if Guild Challenges gave experience above the cap, functioning like rested experience and moving the cap further relative to the experience gained through completing said challenges?

Don't worry. I can read, I swear. I'm referring to experience and not rep.

Ok now you're just tormenting us Zar. How about a one-sentence teaser about what guild challenges actually are?
Built into the user interface, Guild Challenges will be separated into three categories: Guild Dungeon Run, Guild Raid, and Guild Rated Battleground. You just need to be in a guild group to complete each category a set number of times per week, earning your guild achievements, experience above the cap, and gold deposited into the Guild Vault (a lot more gold if the guild is level capped). We'll have more details for you probably by next week.

Are these challenges only going to be able to be completed at level 85? It would be nice to see some love for low-level members in the guilds!
As I understand it, you'll be eligible to contribute equally to things like the Guild Dungeon Run challenge, provided the dungeon you're running is level-appropriate for the guild group.

That's pretty disappointing. Isn't this what guilds are already doing anyway? I thought it would be more like guild quests that create a phased challenge somewhere in the world for your guild to complete. This just promotes even more LFG queueing while sitting in town. Some love for world zones in endgame please.
We're working on something sort of along these lines as a much more robust content feature for the future, but I can't put a date or patch number on that yet. It also won't necessarily be centered around guilds.

Was that ambiguous? I've never been ambiguous before, so I wouldn't know.

    Haha, nice Daily Blink but seriously though, we had very much trouble with Atramedas changing targets when the fire got close to its original target and then *BAM* just switch to someone else. We did kill him however but I ahve bo idea how it went on Neffy HC :S

    I really laughed so hard at every Mage change, I can't even choose which I like the best.

    Daily Blink = full of win as always.

    Too bad the community is in a state where that disclaimer "That is a joke" is needed.

    This patch notes are from wiki-leaks. This are official patchnotes for 5.1 - the 4.1 is just a typo. This are the new overhauled skills from the new hero class Archmage.

    Mage buffs?! REALLY? They can't be serious, those are so op...

    Good job I play a mage.

    I'd like to see how people would really react if they were real. I'd bet the Blizzard forums would go down

    By far the funniest thing on the whole post are the big letters spelling out THIS IS A JOKE, NOT OFFICIAL CHANGES.
    Tells so much about the MMO-Champ community.

    ...actually, that's kinda sad.

    Strange i dont even think those mage "changes" are funny. Guess after 5-6years of wow everything about mages is on my ignore list

    Tbh, that mage part about arcane intelecting himself only is so true. Experienced it way too many times where you almost had to beg the mage to give us intel...well mage was toping meters but still, selfish little buggers.

    I ADORE the mage changes of counterspell. Although I wonder does this make me PvP or PvE holy?
