General Forum InformationTwo Warlocks? Go to thread
In this thread, Eyonix shares an addition to 2.1 concerning the Warlock spell Death Coil.
We're actually going to be updating the patch notes soon, with a new note indicating that Death Coil will now be subject to diminishing returns with itself, in the Horror category.
Currently, only Death Coil is in this category.That fel reaver hit me so hard... Go to thread
In this thread, Eyonix explains why sometimes, as a Horde character, you're sent to the Barrens graveyard rather than the zone you died in.
Basically, if you're Horde and for any reason the game is unable to identify which graveyard to send your ghost, you'll be ported to Crossroads. It's not necessarily a bug connected with a specific portion of a zone, there are a variety of factors that can cause this type of communication failure.
Fortunately, it's very rare.Only Tailoring and Leatherwork Respecialize? Go to thread
In this thread, Eyonix explains that the patch notes have an error, and also reveals that Engineering re-spec will be coming soon.
The note is wrong, and will be corrected soon. It's actually tailoring and alchemy that can now be unspecialized. You are already able to do blacksmithing, and engineering should be available in a future patch.Has WoW peaked? Go to thread
In this thread, Nethaera comments on the topic's question.
No one ever knew that what World of Warcraft has accomplished would happen, not even us. The question shouldn't be, "Has WoW peaked" because that's very subjective. For someone that has just burnt out on content, it could be the peak for them. For others that are new, it could just be starting. I'm not a fortune teller and I couldn't possibly tell you what will happen next.
I see people constantly playing the part of doomsayer when it comes to World of Warcraft and of course people questioning if we care or not. Yes, we care about this game and its future. If we didn't care, we wouldn't continue adding to it, fixing bugs and planning for its future. We're all very invested in it and the community, no matter how others try to spin it.
I also see people claiming how they wish this or that game kills WoW. Frankly, I've always been of the mind that strong MMOs make for a strong genre. We've seen the populace that plays MMOs jump up significantly since the release of World of Warcraft and there is no telling where the pinnacle of that will be. There is no telling just how large this all can get.
We're still here, we're still extremely healthy, and we aren't going anywhere for a long while.
For those that wish to compare and contrast games, we have an off-topic forum. As always, this forum is for discussion of World of Warcraft and not a soapbox for whatever new game you wish to champion. Please respect the boundaries of the forums.Runed Eternium Rod doesn't work ????? Go to thread
In this thread, Drysc mentions that the issue is fixed in 2.1.
"Runed Eternium Rod can not be used to make Prismatic Sphere."
Fixed in 2.1new realms up Go to thread
In this thread, Tseric reminds everyone why you don't want to make him angry.
Deliberately posting misinformation, rumors, lies, etc. and inciting the public will get you kicked off the internets.Max amt of characters for account? Go to thread
In this thread, Drysc shares an answer for the subject.
10 per realm, 50 per account. If you do delete one to make room I believe you have to log out and back in before you can create more, or you'll just see the same error that you're all full up.US Event realms? Go to thread
In this thread, Nethaera explains what the new event servers are for.
These are for the Arena Tournament.
