A new patch means new tweets from the World of Warcraft development team! This thread is an archive of @WarcraftDevs tweets regarding patch 7.2.5.


@WarcraftDevs is an official World of Warcraft Twitter account offering design insight and information directly from the World of Warcraft Development Team.

For past updates, please refer to Updates from @WarcraftDevs - Patch 7.2.

The Stabilized Titan Essence to upgrade legendary items to 970 will still be consumed on use, right?

This is correct. That upgrade item should not be different than the upgrade from 910 to 940.

Crafted items seem to be scaling to 900 ilvl instead of 885 like the patch notes say - intended?

Correct. We'll have a complete hotfixes update later today with new hotfixes such as this one.

Will I be able to take 910 legendary to 970, or from 910 to 940 to 970?

The new quest will take all Legion legendaries to item level 970.

Old legendary upgrade quest (910 -> 940) is gone, no longer in log, probably lost progress. NPC no longer offers quest.

The new quest (available when Tomb opens next week) takes items directly to 970, entirely replacing the old one.

Any word on when we are going to know what the Guldan changes are? Would love to know before raid tonight.

These hotfixes are not live yet, but they're mainly a small decrease to Gul'dan's health to offset changes to some items and set bonuses.

not receiving artifact power tokens from world quests completions from appropriate follower equipment

In Patch 7.2.5, the Follower equipment Artifact Power rewards' 100% drop rate has been reduced to 20%, and the drops reward 5x the AP.

We're reducing the amount of time it takes to research Artifact Knowledge past rank 26 to 4 hours. Details:

Is there any way to buy season 3 gear? i wanted the transmog but the appearance vendors don't sell the ensemble

Season 4 gear uses the same appearance as Season 3 gear, so the vendor will be available after Season 4 concludes.

People will be raiding soon...is it safe to assume Guldan wont see nerfs today? Would love to plan

This is now live - Gul'dan's health has been reduced by 3% on Heroic and Mythic difficulties.

Additionally, the damage of Gul'dan's Fel Scythe, Krosus' Searing Brand, and several of Star Augur's abilities has been reduced by 15%.

Hotfix now live: Draught of Souls' damage is reduced by 20% for Arms Warriors and 15% for Fury (was previously reduced by 40% for each)

To be clear: this means Draught of Souls will now deal more damage for those specs. This is not an additional nerf.

Hotfix now live: Warlocks should correctly have 3 Soul Shards available during Arena and Battleground preparation, prior to match start.

A new update to the Legion Companion App, which contains several bugfixes, is now available for iOS and Android.

Will you guys announce the final glad cutoffs sometime today? If so, thanks!

Not today. We won't be able to release final cutoffs until we've had time to finish end-of-season disqualifications.

Correct. We'll have a complete hotfixes update later today with new hotfixes such as this one.

To clarify this earlier tweet: Crafted items increasing to item level 900 is intended. We'll have details in today's hotfixes update.

can you update the cutoffs until end of the season please? is hard to know the cutoff

Indeed, we updated this thread a couple of hours ago:

We've posted a new hotfixes update to our blog with all of today's changes following the release of Patch 7.2.5:


Reminder: we're still planning another round of class tuning for later this week.

We've just shared our thoughts on Demon Blades, the change we tried on the 7.2.5 PTR, and why we decided against it:

i can't do the current val shara invasion on my alt lvl 104, is this intended ?

No, this is unintended. We're investigating.
