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.

    these warning is like the rules in an army manual, they only exist cause someone made this mistake allready, like "you can stop climbing a tree without order ,when you reach the peak" or "you have to start swimming without order, when the water gets deeper than 1,5m"

    however is there a bad meaning when you resist a frostbolt? like you allready reached the cap?

    I really wonder if some of those people QQ'ing about The Daily Blink joke really thinks it is real changes? Out of those 10-12 comments like:
    "holy shit wtf is blizzard thinking making those mage changes!??!?!?!?!?" i am sure most of them are just sarcasm but at least 1-2 of them must be true, which is really sad for humanity.

    How can a human being think "Shamans who are detected looking directly at an arcane mage will now explode, dealing 50% of their former life to allies within 10 yards" and the others are Real? Seriously? (Not to mention Huge -unnecessary- Warnings: "This is a Joke, Not Official Changes") Are we really playing this game with those people? Are we really living in the same world with those people? :/

    Anyway it was great! Loved "Glyph of Water Elemental"!!!

    The funniest part of the Daily Blink is how they be-little and troll the Warlock indirectly loool.

    I also laugh at locks in BG before I obliterate em. Either on my rogue or DK, locks are free honor

    Ow they didn't include the famous: "cold snap" now also resets itself(it snaps back lol)

    also kinda sad that they have to indicate that the changes are a joke would be nice to see who actually would believe those changes are real.Now THAT would be funny(and kinda sad too)

    Only 1g for resisting frost nova? This is a huge nerf, I bet everyone will spend the few gold pieces and frost nova becomes useless

    But, really, I don't think the warning is big enough. In a few hours all of us with a little common sense will have to get popcorn as we read through the new forum posts and comments freaking out about the patch notes.

    There is no such thing as 'big enough' when it comes to warnings and jokes in regards to buffs and nerfs, especially when they affect PvP.
