Raid Tuning and Nighthold Release Date
In the recent Q&A, it was mentioned that the next Q&A would be around Patch 7.1.5 release, maybe in the first couple of weeks of January. Patch 7.1.5 and Nighthold release dates are independent of each other.

Trial of Valor will see a set of tuning adjustments next week, focused mainly on Heroic and Mythic difficulty, which should help groups overcome the challenges of the Trial as they prepare for Nighthold.

Which brings us to the release date for Nighthold itself: We are aiming to unlock Normal and Heroic Nighthold on January 17, 2017. Raid Finder wings and Mythic difficulty will release during the weeks following, which we will share more specific details on at a later time.

We look forward to seeing you in the Nighthold!

Prestige Bug

When the Prestige Level was increased yesterday, the accumulated honor was applied and the character progressed through those new Prestige Levels.

The rewards were legitimately earned through playtime, however, so we won’t be removing them. This bug should be fixed in 7.1.5, so that others in similar situations will earn those rewards immediately, and so that this will not affect future seasons.

    If you don't have Curve Xavius yet uninstall the game plebs.

    We wouldn't drop a patch with major class changes in the middle of a raid tier, as even we agree that would be silly.
    Looks like they are delaying Mythic difficulty because 7.1.5 wont be ready when they release Nighthold.

    As another note, this means that Cutting Edge: Xavius and Ahead of the Curve: Xavius will become unobtainable with the release of Nighthold on January 17.

    In which case, they could release 7.1.5 before Nighthold to get data from heroic runs and tune accordingly.

    nice to have offical confirmation that nighthold is now officialy tier 2 - guess no argus raid after tomb of sargeras
    Can we stop using the term tier please. It's a player made concept. Blizzard doesn't use it nor abide by it. Just think of each raid as a separate entity and we avoid all this confusion

    Are you actually trying to tell me that blizzard devides raids into tiers(even though they stated they don't use that term) because they have an achievement called ahead of the curve? Please feel free to explain

    I'm mostly joking, but in any case, typically the AotC/CE achievements are like this:

    HeyGuys how's it going it ya boy R.I.P. in peace WoW here.

    when a good potion of achievments can be bought , having cutting edge or Ahead is for the most part worthless . sense blizzard does not care bout people buying runs then it looses its luster. If you happened to earn it honestly then by all means Congrats! u did it! way to go!

    and i assume (of course, never mentioned or hinted at by blizzard because fuck EU right?) that we - the europeans - get it the 18th

    we'll see the 17th in our blizzard client during january as well i assume. It's been like that the past couple of years
