Logging in on main, it showed my new honor level as 37, which seems to be on par with the total honor of that one character only (330k), whereas my account total should amount to level 79 (695k). Do I have to log into each character separately or is that a glitch?


Yes, you will need to log in on each character for their Honor to be added to the total.

please clarify. BFA will use DX12 for AMD And Intel CPU? Yet Nvidia is by far the more popular GPU architecture and is being left behind. This is flat out wrong!!!! Y'all really are trying to dump your customer base if perception is reality.


We prioritized DirectX 12 support where we felt it necessary for performance and stability. This was not necessary for NVIDIA hardware, which performs admirably on DirectX 11.

Any fix for people that have already done the quest for Magram Clan Centaur and Gelkis Clan Centaur reputation? Completed Loremaster years ago and now I cant get these reputations to exalted.


We've just applied a hotfix to the game to address this. If you previously completed the quest "Death to Agogridon", speak to Karnum Marshweaver in Desolace to receive your reward.

There's a lot of commotion on the RP realms about sharding returning, it's really not welcome on the RP realms, however, I assume this is only temporary to help with BFA's launch?


By default, sharding is always disabled on RP realms, except where needed for server stability. When events drive large numbers of players to specific areas, we shard them as needed. Sharding has once again been disabled, but we expect it will be needed for launch events soon.

The Siege of Lordaeron is a permanent part of Battle for Azeroth and a pre-requisite for Kul'Tiras and Zandalar. It will remain playable like Broken Shore was for Legion.

This seems wrong.


This is a "Stealth" mission; sending troops on these missions reduces success chance. You can see this by putting your mouse cursor over the "Stealth" indicator in the upper left.

Yo @WarcraftDevs I wanna run M+ but my key dropped at +18. I can't grind it down to a doable level because I hit an instance cap.


We quickly fixed the underlying issue that caused some players to receive high level Mythic Keystones. Deleting the key and running another Mythic dungeon will grant you a new Mythic Keystone.

As a reminder, the instance cap is hourly.

it heals + increase with up to 200% depending on current health.

if I don’t hit conquest cap on my alt what happens exactly. Does my new cap for next week become 1000 instead of 500? And so on til Im caught up or I just completely miss out on a weapon?


If a character of yours doesn't hit the Conquest cap, you won’t miss out. You won’t lose Conquest or the chance to get the Conquest reward for this week. If you wanted to, you could wait three weeks and then accumulate the Conquest for three rewards in one day.
