Hey all, just a little heads-up for you!

When Patch 7.3 goes live in Europe on August 30th, Emissary quests will reset. This means that any active, incomplete, Emissary quests players had before 7.3 went live will be lost.

If, over the next couple of days, you receive an Emissary quest for a faction you wish to earn rewards from, please be sure to complete the quest before the weekly maintenance. (Official Forums)

Patch 7.3 and Broken Shore Buildings
Thanks for the feedback here, we will be monitoring the rate at which the Broken Shore buildings are completed (post-7.3) and have ways to ensure they are still getting built if it proves necessary. (Official Forums)

New Mythic+ Weekly Chest
To confirm:

A +10 this week will get you the maximum item level reward from next week's Order Hall chest. (Official Forums)

Realm Connections and Guild Features
Game Director, Ion Hazzikostas, actually answered a couple of questions related to both of these topics at gamescom this week.

In regards to realm connections:
Yes, this is something we want to do and we are actively working toward rolling out new realm connections.

The last time we made realm connections was just before the launch of Warlords of Draenor. Since that time, there have been a lot of changes to our infrastructure on the server-side, which means the process we used to connect realms (before WoD) no longer works.

We're having to work through some issues to be able to make new connections, but we hope to have some more details for you soon.

In regards to the social systems:
We're looking at improving some of the guild systems in the future. No specific details to share at this point in time. (Official Forums)

Patch 7.3 - New Maps, Icons, and Strings
With the patch almost here, we have a final look at the new maps, icons, and strings in the patch.







WoW History: 8/20 - 8/26
We're taking a look back at old MMO-Champion posts and World of Warcraft news that occurred during the week of 8/20 to 8/26 in previous years.

Patch 6.2.2 Grove Warden Mount Preview
During this time in Draenor, we would finally be able to obtain an awesome moose mount, the Grove Warden!The mount was originally believed to be available from the in-game shop to purchase, but it was soon discovered that it was tied to Ahead of the Curve: The Black Gate. Sadly, the mount is no longer available for players to earn, but if you still have the quest, you can complete it.


Warlords of Draenor - Horde/Alliance Chopper Preview
After the highly entertaining mini-series that detailed the construction of these custom choppers, we were finally able to get a preview of what the Horde Chopper and Alliance Chopper would like like in the game. Because the mini-series was a competition and Horde won, any member of the Horde that was playing at the time received their mount for free, and the Alliance could purchase their mount from a vendor.


Patch 5.0.4 on Live Servers This Week
During late August in 2012, the Mists of Pandaria systems patch went live, bringing quite a few exciting changes to the game. Some of the most notable changes included a new talent system, an 11th character slot, AoE looting, and account-wide achievements, mounts, and pets! As Cataclysm began to wind down and players began to prepare for Mists, and this gave everyone plenty of time to get used to the variety of changes.


Patch 4.3 Preview: New Darkmoon Faire
Around this time in 2011, Blizzard shared a preview of what the new Darkmoon Faire would hold for players. The old tickets were scrapped for new tickets that could be used to purchase new and exciting rewards. Additionally, the new Darkmoon Faire would include daily mini-games that could be used to earn tickets to purchase mounts, transmog items, and much more.

    Bummed. I know logically that many classes can use swords, staves and polearms and only two specs of a single class use bows but I was hoping for at least one ranged skin.

    I think human males have to lose some weight around their waists.

    As an arms warrior I really hope Taeshalach is a 2h, right now the hilt looks like it only fits one hand

    What? It's clearly listed as a two-hander. What's the need to hope?

    Also, are those greatsword sizes bugged?

    I love these "this week" comments keep doing those!! I had a bit of a nostalgic response to seeing it's been 5 years since AoE looting, man it doesn't feel like 5 yrs but I sure as hell remember having to loot each body....

    I live for the day Blizzard cares a little bit more for hunters and make a nice beautiful weapon for us. Maybe put some new animations, too.

    look at the hilt, only one hand fits, it was originally labelled as a 1h mace to FYI, so don't take it as gospel

    To be fair we already have Alleria's bow, we already have something that fits thematically to the argus patch.

    So wait a sec, if we can get Aggramar and Sargeras' weapons does that mean we fight and defeat them on Argus? How is that even possible if they are some of the most powerful beings in the Universe?
  1. Erbel's Avatar
    Once again a sword model I really like is ruined because it makes something out of an anime or Korean MMO looks small by comparison.

    Seriously fuck off with this shit and start making weapons actually normal fucking sized again Blizz.

    Will they increase M+ difficulty or just lower the level needed to get max loot? Asking since im confused, if 7.3 +10 is like +15 now, that means +15 in 7.3 will be like +23 and +20 will be like +30 or so....?

    I don't know but anyway when 7.3.5 hits you'll be able to be 970i so that won't be that much of a deal

    The "this week" post gave me goosebumps! Ahh man..time is a wild thing. Just sitting here and putting myself back to the day I read those patch notes for the first time and how different things were is crazy.

    No fairness at all, since we're not getting Alleria's bow while we're here. :< or even a new hidden appearance for it.
