Where is my custom lag tolerance?!


The cvar was renamed and is now: "SpellQueueWindow". There wasn't a way to change it for players who had leftover non-default values there.

Is this trait activated in PvP? Didn't notice my HP changing inside arena after getting it.


Yes. The trait is active in PvP, but don't forget: all players are granted the stamina from this trait whether they have the trait or not.

for realms with much lower population, is it going to take weeks ( or months) to construct a building on the broken shore?


Broken Shore Buildings aren't realm-specific. They're region-wide, which means you're seeing many realms working together with you.

This was an intentional aesthetic change. Movement speed while Prowling was so fast that the walk animation didn't look quite right.

hi there. Noticed that unstable nether portals have been removed and nether portal disruptors cannot be obtained from vendor.


The portals and the items to activate them are part of the Nether Disruptor building. They’ll only be around when the Disruptor is active.

7.2.5 DHs who currently have both BT Warglaives, will they need to re-earn DH-only versions or will they convert?


If you have the BC achievement on any character, you’ll get the DH-specific transmog appearance when you defeat TW Illidan on any character.

IN the Q&A you said relics would be throughput, yet all the rogue relics that drop off BS bosses are cloak, sprint etc


We dropped our preliminary "second bonus trait" plan. As always, the base properties of Relics span the entire range of available traits.

Is it okay for a DH to get to a spot, unreachable for most classes, in an RBG?


No. In fact, we pushed a hotfix yesterday morning that should prevent this from happening.

Please make it possible to Obliterate Combatant's gear.


Relics and Combatant’s gear will become obliterable in Patch 7.2.5.
