    • The achievement Memories of Fel, Frost and Fire is now account-wide.
    • The Obsidian Worldbreaker mount will now be immediately rewarded once a player earns Memories of Fel, Frost and Fire (previously it was delivered via in-game mail).

    • The Windsor’s Frenzy buff is again properly restricted to the small area around Marshal Windsor.
      • Developers’ note: This correction restores the buff’s functionality to its original 1.12 behavior.

    PvP With The Blues – Friday 10:00 a.m. PST

    Deepwind Gorge Redesigned
    In Visions of N’Zoth, Deepwind Gorge has been redesigned. It’s now a capture-point map with five nodes to fight over.

    For this playtest, log into the PTR and open Group Finder (default hotkey: i), then switch to the Player vs. Player tab on the bottom of the window and queue for a quick match in the Specific Battleground Deepwind Gorge .

    After you’ve gorged on Deepwind, please return here and look for our feedback thread.

    Teeming Islands Brawl
    These are 10v10 PvP Islands that you can queue for as a Brawl. All appropriate rewards from doing Islands are available, so you can finish both the Brawl weekly and your Island weekly for Azerite in this one.

    The map selection will only be the larger islands. For this PTR test, we’re using Havensworth and Jorundall.

    To playtest this with us, log into the PTR and open Group Finder (default hotkey: i), then select the active PvP Brawl and queue up. Afterward, please come back to this forum and look for our Teeming Islands Brawl feedback thread.

    We look forward to seeing you on Broxigar in the PTR at 10:00 a.m. PST on Friday, and we really appreciate all of your testing and feedback!

    Classic - Keyrings Coming in First Patch This Year

    Yes – the Keyring will come to WoW Classic with our first patch to the game client later this year.
    We don’t yet have a certain date for the patch, but we’ll let you know as soon as we do.

    So Phase =/= Patch?
    Correct. We’re able to turn on content such as Dire Maul or World Bosses without having to change the game client and require downtime the way a patch does.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    In the coming months, we will announce our retail-only Collector’s Edition to commemorate the release of Shadowlands, featuring everything in the Epic Edition, and more!

    Whelp, RIP ever getting that title.

    Extremely lame that they are removing the title.
    And really, all they needed to do was to remove the stupid slow when running a cart and make bg achievements solo-friendly - which many of them aren't for the new bgs.

    Lame. Couldn't they at least put it as seperate queue/Brawl until 8.3 rolls out, so that everyone who is close to getting the meta achiv can get it done before it's removed?

    limited time only! grab it while you can!
    disgusting marketing practice for people with ocds to keep them playing, fomo for normal people, exactly like addictive personalities and gambling to push them into using a product/service again and again.
    "oh it can't do any harm to players, they're master of their choice, it's just a gameplay decision not a business one" really disgusting, it's fine to make money, to abuse player's weaknesses, not so much

    Why not add a seperate queue for this revised BG instead of just replacing it altogether?

    Good. They need to start retiring more achievements. If you didn't get them during the few years it's been out oh well.

    Just one idiot/asshole who doesn't move and it was a wipe. LfR is not meant to be wipable by a single troll, good change.

    That was needed, it was stupid fast and the raid is much more like LFR. People going be slow reacting or trolls.

    I think so too. The more achievements are not available anymore the more players will realize how stupid they are to go for achievements...and the faster the system will break down. Once you are out of that treadmill you will not look back again...

    Why should they remove normal achievements? Only for the sake of removing? What do we gain with that? Are the achievements creating technical problems within the client? Performance issues?

    Other than adding way too many pointless achievements just to reach their imaginary "minimum number of achievements added per patch" goal, there is no reason to remove achievements just for the sake of removing it.

    Are they removing the BG? Is WoW running on such an old technology that they can't update the achievements to reflect whatever they've updated on that map? Don't think so.

    Guess they should remove every achievement related to anything they fix/update in the game now then.

    But this is a PVP achievement.. it doesn't matter what expansion it is, the challenge will remain the same since the opposing party are players.

    Yay... another AB style pvp map. Maybe they should make it a king of the hill map instead. Having 3 capture points that change ever 2ish minutes and you only gain points if your team controls capture points but they're constantly moving. Instead of fixed capture and defend we already have 2 of those. Just a thought.

    Defile on me!!

    I've had such a fun time with the LK in lfr now. We joked about it in 2009, and it's just as funny in 2019. Now fun is nerfed.

    Defile must be the most iconic boss ability in the game. Now all got to experience it.

    Nah, just like the WSG and AB revamps, I'm excited for a deepwing gorge revamp. I'm happy with this.
