any reason why me and my healer friend cant q double healer in RANDOM bgs?

Just a bug - we're working on a fix.

What will we require to do the new Suramar quests? Previous one completed and exalted with Nightfallen?

Correct. You must complete the questline "A Change of Seasons" for the storyline to continue.

there it goes again. Warden Towers are once more 150 honor and I dont see it in the patch notes. Is this intended?

Not intended. We've got a hotfix in testing that will put them back at 300 Honor.

is there a reason eclipse doesn't reduce the cd on incarnation?

This is a bug, which we'll be fixing. Thanks for the report!

Mobs can see through my feral stealth and I can see other druids when they stealth as well...is this a bug?

Thanks for the report. We've applied a hotfix that should correct this issue.

Why was Cordana's Deepening Shadows ability changed? Very hard to see now, kinda ridiculous.

All night elf children learn to love the dark...

Thanks for the report. This should be fixed now.

Pressing "Z" (sheath weapon) crashes WoW client for a lot of people

This is a known issue which we're currently working to address as quickly as possible.

hey guys sword of light retribution was removed? 5% dmg loss overall, bug?

Sword of Light's damage increase is now baseline. However, a bug caused it to only affect Physical damage, which we're working to hotfix.

Luffa Wrappings are no longer providing any benefit to Guardians. Bug?

Yep, just a bug. We've just applied a hotfix - should be working properly once again.

WQ "Oh, Ship!" is badly messed up. Only 1 or 2 people can complete the WQ at a time, Capt. Nuthals dies almost instantly.

We're working on a fix to correct the tapping issues for Captain Nuthals and Dread Captain Graham.

Did the patch screw with the max camera distance? I feel suffocatingly close to my toon right now and cant zoom out.

The console command to extend camera distance has changed. It's now:

/console cameraDistanceMaxZoomFactor 2.6

Rank 2 Potion of Prolonged power is not purchasable if you are Exalted with the Nightfallen-In fact you can't buy any Pattern

Thanks for the reports on this issue - hotfix is currently in testing!

Looks like 7.1 pulled out TargetPriorityAllowAnyOnScreen. Is there any way to get pre 7.0 tab targetting bacl?

The pre-7.0 tab targeting logic is now baseline in 7.1, so that CVar was no longer needed.

Aimed Shot's nerf seems to be lower than 5% as it says in the patch notes. Bug?

It was reduced from 215% to 204% weapon damage, so technically 5.116%. Patch notes tend not to go into that much detail with decimals.

Entering Voidform disables the 10% physical damage reduction as voidform replaces shadowform. Is this intended?

Yes, sacrificing the 10% physical damage reduction when entering Voidform is intentional.

is it intended for the new UH DK DarkTransformation model to be the old shambler now? Please tell me this is a bug.

Not intended. Hotfix is on the way.

Fire-watcher's oath not working in bgs Intended

No. Working on a hotfix.

Can level 110 warlocks no longer enslave any demon in the Broken Isles? Says up to level 109 only. nothing's 109 w/scaling.

Thanks for the report; we'll get this fixed!

My guild just experienced a serious bug in Emerald Nightmare where if you're using a druid tank you instantly kill the offtank

We're testing a hotfix for this issue, which we hope to push live soon.
