Boss ‘Fixation’ Bug and Hotfix
Originally Posted by Bashiok (Blue Tracker)

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 the mage jokes, absolutely loving those!!
    Also, Atramedes was absolutely horrible yesterday, DBM telling you that he fixates on someone, and then he just goes for someone that is just not prepared for it (me in this case) and gets killed FU Atramedes, at least give me some new shoulders...

    Lame! I think resisting a frost nova should be atleast 100g.

    Also, i think Summon Water Elemental should let them summon Murmur from Shadow Labyrinth, and also let him keep the size.

    Why is rift worse? I play both WoW and Rift, can't really find anything major wrong in the game yet. But then I'm just 44, problems might start at 50.

    no wonder daily blink looks awful, they're apparently designing on a PC without cleartype if they think that's what mmo-champion looks like.

    Welcome to 2002.
