  • Reduced the speed at which Defile would increase in area and damage during Memories of Azeroth: Wrath of the Lich King.
  • The achievement Memories of Fel, Frost and Fire is now account-wide.
  • The Obsidian Worldbreaker mount will now be immediately rewarded once a player earns Memories of Fel, Frost and Fire (previously it was delivered via in-game mail).

Deepwind Gorge Redesigned
In Visions of N’Zoth, Deepwind Gorge has been redesigned. It’s now a capture-point map with five nodes to fight over.

For this playtest, log into the PTR and open Group Finder (default hotkey: i), then switch to the Player vs. Player tab on the bottom of the window and queue for a quick match in the Specific Battleground Deepwind Gorge .

After you’ve gorged on Deepwind, please return here and look for our feedback thread.

Teeming Islands Brawl
These are 10v10 PvP Islands that you can queue for as a Brawl. All appropriate rewards from doing Islands are available, so you can finish both the Brawl weekly and your Island weekly for Azerite in this one.

The map selection will only be the larger islands. For this PTR test, we’re using Havensworth and Jorundall.

To playtest this with us, log into the PTR and open Group Finder (default hotkey: i), then select the active PvP Brawl and queue up. Afterward, please come back to this forum and look for our Teeming Islands Brawl feedback thread.

We look forward to seeing you on Broxigar in the PTR at 10:00 a.m. PST on Friday, and we really appreciate all of your testing and feedback!

Classic – Keyrings Coming in First Patch This Year

Yes – the Keyring will come to WoW Classic with our first patch to the game client later this year.
We don’t yet have a certain date for the patch, but we’ll let you know as soon as we do.

So Phase =/= Patch?
Correct. We’re able to turn on content such as Dire Maul or World Bosses without having to change the game client and require downtime the way a patch does.

Sorry for the confusion.
