Legion
Development Blog 5

Here is the new development blog about the work being done on Legion and what's planned in the next coming weeks.

http://wowhead.com/zone=7546 should be available in Normal and Heroic either this weekend or next weekend. This will bring the number of dungeons currently available to Legion at 5. The dungeons that are currently available are http://wowhead.com/zone=8040, http://wowhead.com/zone=7673, http://wowhead.com/zone=7996, http://wowhead.com/zone=7812, and http://wowhead.com/zone=7546 . Which means that these will open in mythical mode by the end of the month if everything goes well.

Many of you ask for news about World Quests in http://wowhead.com/zone=7334, they should be available in the next one to two weeks.  As for the World Bosses in Azsuna and Val'Sharah,  we would need World Quests developed first.

Professions such as mining, herbalism, etc. should be put in place next week. We're still working on the development of professions and we cannot give a precise date.

The first Arena Season, we want all talents from Player vs. Player to be functional before we start the arena season. We plan to launch the first arena season with the release of the first boss of the Legion Raid.

Warlords of Draenor
Realm Merges

We had communicated a few days ago our desire to merge all of the Mists of Pandaria realms into one realm. We've decided to extend this policy to merge the Warlords of Draenor realms into one as well. With the release of Legion, we noticed a drop in the older expansions. We wish to respond before this trend is problematic proposing a realm with a strong and dynamic population. We found with the Legion realm bringing together players from the same expansion allows the realm to be more sustainable in the long term, more alive and reduced maintenance for the development team.

The Mists of Pandaria realms (Rassharom, Taran'Zhu, Hellscream, and Menethil) will be merged on November 14th during the day. The new realm name will be Garrosh.

The Warlords of Draenor realms (Blackhand, Grommash, and Sombraluna) will be merged on Tuesday, November 15th during the day. The new realm name will be Gul'Dan.

The merge of realms will take a relatively long time, merging the databases as the databases are large. Compared with the nicknames that could be found twice, characters with duplicates nicknames will be renamed to "#RENAME" and offered a name change to either resume their original name or choose a new one.

Regarding the guild names that could also be a problem, we plan to add the name of the original realm for those few guilds. You will need to contact us to see to change the guild name if you wish. 

As in Legion, you will not have access to the "world" channel, there will be local discussion channels: world_en, world_fr, world_es. Game Masters will moderate these chat channels.

Legion
Legion: PvP Templates

We are working on a new Legion feature : PvP template. However, It's still in testing phase.

To get started, every character entering a PvP instance has a base template of stats that is scaled to a target item level. For simplicity sake, we're going to focus here on level 110 values which budget players at item level 850. Based on our experience in beta, we felt the ratio of damage to health was a bit high, so this set of stats has a bit less primary stat and a bit more stamina that someone would in 850 gear.

Primary Stat (Agility, Intellect, Strength): 11475 Secondary Stat (Mastery, Critical Strike, Haste, Versatility): 4079 Stamina: 22000

For each spec, these stats are adjusted up or down by a multiplier that defaults to 1.0 (or 100%). For example, casters (like mages and warlocks) and healers do not benefit from the damage values on their weapons, so additional primary stat is budgeted on weapons throughout the game. Accordingly, all caster classes have a primary stat multiplier of 1.55 in PvP. This represents a 55% increase in Intellect for these specs.

We also have a blanket "Mod Damage Done" aura on all of the PvP templates for when we want to reduce damage but not primary stat. Healers are the best application of this aura. We may want to buff a Restoration Shaman's healing output, but we don't want their lava bursts to hit like trucks. Currently, all healers have a 25% reduction in damage against other players. Discipline Priests are the only exception as doing damage is part of how they heal.

Also, for individual spells, we can increase or decrease their effect while in PvP combat. This includes PvP instances like battlegrounds and arenas, but also World PvP and duels. If we want to decrease the amount of healing that Death Strike does in PvP by half, we set the PvP multiplier of that effect to 0.5.

 Death Knight Blood Stat Template All damage done reduced by 25% Primary: 80% Stamina: 70% Mastery: 25% Versatility: 0% Spell Multipliers Consumption heals for 50% in PvP Unending Thirst increases damage and leech by 15% in PvP (rather than 25%) Hearth Strike does 75% damage in PvP Blood Boil does 30% damage in PVP Frost Stat Template Stamina: 120% Spell Multipliers Sindragosa's Fury deals 40%

damage in PvP Frost Stat Template Primary: 130% Haste: 150% Mastery: 50% Spell Multipliers Glacial Spike deals 75% damage in PvP  Monk Brewmaster Stat Template All damage done reduced by 25% Stamina:
