Emerald Nightmare Full Clear Solo by a Single Class - Interview with Shoot
The Emerald Nightmare
was the first raid zone opened in Legion, opening roughly a year and a half ago. Ever since, much has changed, from our gear being around 140 ilvls higher to our artifact having about 60 more traits. With those power spikes, many players have ventured into the zone alone, creating a different challenge.
While all bosses from
The Emerald Nightmare
had been previously solo'd by different players on different classes, the hunter
accomplished the feat of defeating all bosses in the zone with the same character! In order to celebrate his feat, we've invited Shoot for an interview to talk about the effort put into soloing all bosses in
The Emerald Nightmare
and soloing in general.

October 3rd Hotfixes: Vantus Runes in Mythic Emerald Nightmare, Mythic Il'gynoth, Keystone Timers
The latest round of hotfixes features some changes to Emerald Nightmare and Mythic+ Dungeons:
The Keystone timers for several dungeons have been adjusted.
can now be used in Mythic Emerald Nightmare.
On Mythic difficulty,
's health has been increased by 200%, but loses one-third of that value each time the
Eye of Il'gynoth
and Mythic+ guides have been updated with today's hotfixes.
A common strategy for Mythic Il'gynoth involved using raid compositions that focus on maximizing burst damage to complete the encounter in a single phase. This approach removes huge portions of the encounter and can overly favor a specific set of classes and specializations, causing negative social pressures in groups that have yet to reach this encounter. These changes ensure that raid groups must enter Il'gynoth's core twice in order to complete the encounter on Mythic difficulty, but offset that change by speeding up the process of destroying the Eye to shorten the overall length of the encounter.

The Emerald Dream was created by the titans as a blueprint for Azeroth itself—a verdant and perfect mirror that reflects the state of nature had it remained unspoiled by so-called civilization. For many years the druids and keepers who are closest to nature have noticed signs of an unsettling presence stirring within the Dream. Spurred on by the Legion and Nightmare Lord Xavius, that creeping corruption has now burst forth, and will engulf all of Azeroth if it is not rooted out at its source.

Sept 15th Hotfixes, Class Balance Update, 7.1 PTR Dungeon/Raid Testing Plans, Honor Talents in 7.1
Legion Developer Q&A
last week, Ion Hazzikostas talked about upcoming hotfixes based around endgame (raiding, etc) data and how it's tricky to tweak classes before the content is available.
In a follow-up blue post today he stated that the aim is to do a broad pass of tuning hotfixes after the first week of raiding and Mythic Keystone dungeons, to get a good sense of endgame data. However, there are some outliers which Blizzard will be addressing quite soon to reduce tank damage as well as the AoE burst of Havoc Demon Hunters and Windwalker Monks.
Other posts in today's roundup include 7.1 PTR Dungeon and Raid testing plans, as well as the reasoning why Honor Talents will no longer reset with Prestige in 7.1.
