Shadowlands Beta - Upcoming Paladin Class Changes

Shining Light (Protection) duration extended. In general, “your next [ability]” buffs should be long enough that the time pressure to consume the buff isn’t too stressful.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Experience granted to players in dungeons is now standardized, and does not change with the size of the player's party.
    • Developers' notes: This standardized experience value is equal to what the leveling player would have previously earned in a 5-person party. Dungeon experience was tuned around the expectation of full parties, and we saw that taplist loopholes in combination with pre-patch changes to dungeon scaling revealed some extreme leveling tactics by fewer than 5 players. We want dungeons to remain lucrative, and to be a valid alternative to questing and other experience sources, rather than to overshadow them.


  • Anduin Wrynn should now be present in the throne room to turn in quests for players who are still on the Darkshore introduction storyline.
