Upcoming Dungeon Changes and Hotfixes
Blizzard posted several big upcoming changes to dungeons tonight:
Warlords dungeon loot is reverting to Need before Greed instead of personal loot. Queueing with a premade group still allows you to enable the personal loot option.
50 Garrison Resources are awarded for completing your first random Warlords Heroic Dungeon of the day.
There is a hotfix preventing people from queueing in PvP areas to avoid scaling gear up to boost ilvl requirements. However, this incorrectly affected Stormshield and Warspear, so a fix is being looked at.

Garrison Invasions, Free Game Time for Launch, Draenor's Secret Power, Nov 18th Hotfixes
2014/11/18 at 1:05 PM
Free Game Time
Blizzard is giving all subscribers with active accounts as of November 14th five free days of game time to make up for launch difficulties.
I know how much everyone was looking forward to this expansion, and once you were able to get in and start having fun, all the comments I've seen indicate that this is one of our best yet. But the quality of the content does not excuse the subpar launch experience we delivered, and I apologize for that.
The first two days of the expansion were not a great experience, with many of you facing high queues or significant gameplay problems. We worked around the clock to tackle the demand issues and technical challenges, and fortunately things started looking better on Saturday. While millions of you were able to get in and play over the weekend, with many already reaching level 100, others still ran into very lengthy queues, particularly on the highest-population realms.
To help address this, we’ve expanded the new instancing tech we used to improve queues on Saturday and we’re continuing the process of applying that to raise the capacity of all realms again. This will result in approximately double the prelaunch capacity on each realm, which should greatly reduce queue times for most realms if not eliminate queues altogether.
In recognition of the difficulties so many of you ran into when trying to play over the first few days, we're adding five days’ worth of extra time to every subscription in the Americas, Oceania, and Europe that was active as of Friday, November 14. Things are already in a much better place than they were going into the weekend, so I hope you’ll now be able to focus on having a ton of fun with this expansion.
I also hope you'll accept my apology and keep your faith in us. The support voiced by many of you as we worked through the challenges was immensely appreciated. We're extremely grateful to be part of such a passionate community. We love World of Warcraft, and we're very proud of this expansion, so stumbling out of the gates like this was very disappointing for all of us.
On behalf of the World of Warcraft development team, as well as everyone at Blizzard, thank you all again for your patience and understanding.
See you in Draenor.

Executive Producer, World of Warcraft
