Class Design on the 7.1.5 PTR
2016/11/18 at 9:25 PM
When the 7.1.5 PTR went up earlier this week, we had
spell changes from datamining
but no specific class changes in the
official patch notes
. As such, there was some confusion as to the intended changes and class directions for specializations that seemed unfinished.
Today, Blizzard explained that the 7.1.5 PTR so far only shows roughly half of the mechanical changes, with more of them coming in the next build. Once the mechanical changes are in a good place, adjustments to overall performance will follow.

Classic Server Update
2016/10/24 at 5:24 PM
While many players are looking forward to
or speculating on
BlizzCon panel announcements
, other players are interested in followups on the Legacy Server situation from the spring. Community Manager Ornyx explains that there will not be any updates to share at BlizzCon, although the development team is still discussing it.
We’ve seen some talk among the community that you might be expecting to hear some news on legacy servers at BlizzCon, and we just wanted to take a moment to let you know that while we’re still discussing the possibility, we won’t have any updates to share on that until after the show.
These past few months we’ve been laser-focused on the launch of Legion and getting Patch 7.1: Return to Karazhan ready to go (it’s almost here!), as well as prepping for BlizzCon—which is always a huge undertaking itself. You’ve heard us say that the launch of Legion was just the beginning of the story we want to tell in this expansion. What we will focus on at BlizzCon is how the team is committed to making sure we bring you a steady stream of content going forward, and we can’t wait to share what’s next for Legion.
Thanks for your patience, and we’ll see you at BlizzCon.
-J. Allen Brack and the World of Warcraft development team
