Hey guys! Some of you have voiced some feedback about feeling a little missed sometimes when it comes to us making or posting updates on sites like Twitter. Since we understand that some of you guys prefer to only use the forums we're going to maintain this sticky thread here as a master list of all of the recent tweets so that you can see when we make them and what was said.

I will try to catch all of them as it will sometimes include tweets from accounts like: WarcraftDevs and Watcher himself or any other dev that posts something I think might be relevant to include in here.

Is the siege of Lordaeron still available for other characters to do after BFA launch or was it removed along with war of thorns?


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.

You said weapons won't titanforge. Why did you go back on this?


They won't, from BfA content. Legion weapons are different since they're competing with artifact relics that have always been able to Titanforge. The other exception is the weekly M+ cache, which isn't random, but rather a guaranteed upgrade.

Countering threats is LOWERING a mission's success chance.


Not a bug - mouse over the tooltip for the "Stealth" mission type. This is admittedly not at clear as it could be, and we're looking at improvements to the UI to highlight when you've incurred a penalty due to a mission mechanic.

Hi! Argent Dawn EU player here, enjoyed the launch and enjoying the expac, but the sharding on Stormwind and Orgrimmar is really eating into friends that like to RP on the server and can't see anybody! Is there going to be a stop to sharding soon in capital cities?


It's necessary around the time of major releases for the sake of server stability to enable sharding on RP realms, but we're aware of the inconvenience and we hope to revert it ASAP.

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.

Hey just wondering is it intended for pvp conquest cap reward to be 280? Seems a little weird that it rewards gear lower then world quests by quite a bit. Thanks.


Conquest rewards for the first week of the new PvP Season are an item level 345 weapon of your choice from class options. We're working on a fix to display the correct item level.

Once you reach 500 Conquest, you'll be given a quest to return to The Mugambala or Hook Point that lets you choose your weapon. The one displayed in the UI is just an example of one option.

Is there any clarification we can have about what the intention is with Light of the Protector in raids for Protection Paladins? @WarcraftDevs
it heals + increase with up to 200% depending on current health.
But in raids the 200% is reduced depending on how many players in raid?

This issue was hotfixed late yesterday, and a similar fix for Hand of the Protector will be live shortly.

is it a bug or intended for the m+ weekly catches to have only 1 pieces. Many of my friends and guildies only got 1 piece. We thought it was up to 3 pieces.


For a few weeks in the Battle for Azeroth Beta, the chest dropped more than one item. The intended design and behavior of the chest is to award one weekly high-end item, just like it did in Legion.

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.

Why Rank 3 recipe (for Alchemy at least) cost 1.2k gold but use the same materials as rank 2? What's the point of adding Rank to professions if you don't add any bonus to it? Same thign for recipe from WQ, Rank 3 don't reduce mats requirements for ANY recipe


In Alchemy specifically, Rank 3 recipes give you an chance to make extra bonus potions, flasks, or other items (sometimes lots more!), instead of reducing the materials required to make them.

Can you clarify who gets the title from the Hall of Fame guild achievement? Right now only those 20 at the kill have it, what about those who had to sit out? A chance for them to also obtain it before it goes away (after 100 kills).

The “Famed Slayer” title will be usable by anyone who is in a guild that has earned the Hall of Fame achievement *and* also has the Cutting Edge achievement for that boss.

Do I need to have my artifact weapon equipped to be able to do the "win ten rated battlegrounds" tint unlock now that BfA is out? I'm not sure if the weapon scales for pvp which would make winning difficult.


You don’t need to have your Artifact weapon equipped or transmogged onto the weapon you're using in order to earn progress towards unlocking any Artifact look or tint.
