PvP Season 3 Disruption Update
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
As we previously noted, a bug on December 31 caused Season 3 to unexpectedly end for Arenas and Rated Battlegrounds. We were able to fix the issue early on January 3, and the fix retained rating changes and tier updates that were obtained by players during the unexpected off-season.

During the time between the bug and the fix, a small number of players advanced to a rating that provides a meaningful reward, and then have not seen that reflected in-game in the resumed Season. To address this, we’re deploying a hotfix:

  • Players who earned the appropriate PvP rating for a BFA Season 3 title while the season was inactive, but then dropped below the required rating before the season could be reactivated, should earn that title when first logging in after the weekly reset.

In this region, the weekly reset occurs tomorrow morning (Tuesday, January 7).

Furthermore, there is one more full week to go until Season 3 ends. Good luck out there as you push for the finish!

Patch 8.3 PTR - Updated Male Worgen Eyes
Male Worgen eyes have received some shine compared to their live versions on the 8.3 PTR! The shimmer is more noticeable on the eyes that don't glow.






Patch 8.3 PTR - Heart of Azeroth Updates and New Essences
Patch 8.3 will once again let you collect Azerite Power to level your Heart of Azeroth past neck level 70.

  • You will unlock additional Perseverance traits at neck level 71 and 80.

In addition, several new essences are coming with Visions of N'Zoth.

    I thought they removed the part beyond the level 80 cap?

    The problem in the past with Legion, is that it sort of felt mandatory to max out as much as possible the artifact weapon.. This looks more like a case of you can if you want to keep going.. Really all depends I suppose on how much it does affect the azerite traits..

    You get it as a stat stick and Ilvl bloater, basically, they removed the part where you have extra corruption resistance in visions and baked it into the cloak

    Will we get a boost to HoA level for alts as we did in previous patches (to 35)?

    The star point healer essence looks great for me but only for a minor slot.

    You mean light? Their eyes are reflective now like real eyes.

    So what happens when you use formless void on a formless void?

    The eyes were better before the PTR update.

    1: Still looks worse in my opinion. 2: Pretty sure real eyes don't reflect light THAT much.

    What's up with the last essence, "Replicating Void Droplets"? Rank 4 minor bonus ist not implemented yet? And the other text seems not finished either...

    Looks good, real improvement. Very feral looking eyes. It's little details like reflective light that brings a model to life.

    Leveling the neck past 80 being a thing upsets me a bit. Granted, 2K gold, while not being huge, is better to me personally than being able to get extra stats that are almost inconsequential.
