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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

https://twitter.com/WarcraftDevs/status/1039649864718544901

For additional context and clarity: this change was made months ago, during the BfA Beta, in response to player feedback that a random chance for 1-3 items in the weekly M+ cache felt bad for players who only got 1 item. The cache has only rewarded one item since late June.

We've just applied a hotfix:
Players that were affected by a bug that incorrectly granted Season 1 achievements on the first day of the season in American realms can now re-earn their Elite transmog unlocks by finishing an arena or battleground.

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.

Any plans to add the the pally animation where they use a book when casting flash of light that was in the beta?


Yes! We're working on Holy Paladin visual effects, and they weren’t completely ready for the launch of Battle for Azeroth, but they are still planned for an upcoming patch.

Holy Priests are using Guardian Spirit on the final faction bosses in Isle of Conquest just before they are about to die, which heals them for 40% of maximum health. This heal is very powerful based on the bosses’ high health. Intended?


We're working on putting a cap on Guardian Spirit's sacrifice, and it would be a cap that's so high that it would only matter on NPCs.

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.
