Shroud of Concealment cannot be used during Arenas or Rated Battlegrounds. already pruning after 1 day...... why????


We generally do not allow abilities with cooldowns over 5 minutes to be used in rated PvP. Shroud was ignoring that restriction.

Personal loot and nighthold: tier drops come in tokens(vanq/conq/prot) or turned into class specific items already(hfc like)?


You'll receive the tier item directly when using Personal loot, but a token on other loot modes.

The Spontaneous Appendages Trinket deals less than half of the damage it did before patch. is that intended? its useless now.


7.1.5 fixed a bug causing this (and Aran's Relaxing Ruby) to proc much more than intended. Planning to buff SA in an upcoming hotfix.

Only Shadow.

8% buff for MM literally is nothing when the playstyle is still terrible now.


We're continuing to discuss the Marksmanship playstyle - just wanted to get some damage buffs in before Nighthold!

There's a bug with MW Monks that they can use Life Cocoon unlimited amount of times in arenas making them unkillable


We've just applied a fix for this issue. We'll be investigating players who extensively abused this bug; send reports to hacks@blizzard.com!

Seriously. Why did artifact knowledge get taken out of the #Legion companion app?


If you're seeing this, it's because you're below Artifact Knowledge level 15, which can now be researched instantly in-game!

Will the titles of S1 Legion be divided by faction? Or totally like in previous expansions?


By faction.

Is Blooddrinker's healing reduced by 40% also?


Its healing is based on its damage, so yes.

What is happening to the arena titles? This is getting a bit silly and is super unfair to players.

who do I have to talk to about restoring ffxGlow CVAR to its former use? invis effect (arcway, il'gynoth, tich) makes me hurl


ffxGlow should have been fixed in 7.1.5 - have you tried it since the patch?

You might also try ffxDeath, which disables the death effect.
