    Upcoming World PvP Changes - 11/13/2017

    With this week’s maintenance, we’ll be applying some hotfixes intended to slow down damage in world PvP:

    • Non-tank specializations now take 40% less damage from enemy players while engaged in world PvP
    • We have reduced the PvP effectiveness of a number of trinkets and Legion Legendaries that contributed to excessive burst damage:

    Our intent with these changes is to reduce the amount of initial burst damage dealt by players in world PvP, especially when using certain legendary items or trinkets, giving the player being attacked more opportunity to react. While we want to maintain the “anything goes” nature of world PvP in Legion, we do want you to have at least some chance to retaliate, even when caught by surprise.

    Join us live on Twitch.tv/Warcraft Thursday, November 16, as we sit down with Game Director Ion Hazzikostas for our next live developer Q&A. He’ll be answering many of your questions on the BlizzCon 2017 announcements, the new Antorus raid dungeon, patch 7.3.5, and any other Legion-related questions.

    Feel free to submit questions by posting in this forum thread or via Twitter using the hashtag #WoWQA.

    As a reminder, please keep your questions short (40 words or less) so that we can get to as many questions as possible. We’re really looking forward to getting the chance to dive in and answer as much as we can, so we hope to see you Thursday at 8:00 p.m. CET / 11:00 a.m. PDT!
