Holy Paladin Nerfs Explained
Nethaera just jumped on to the official forums to let us know about a holy paladin nerf:
no longer generates Holy Power when used with
Luz del alba
isn't healing for as much.
Looks like paladin healers were spamming Holy Light on the tank to build up Holy Power, then using Light of Dawn to heal the rest of the raid for free.
These hotfixes were intentional and we wanted to share more information about the "why" for you all here:
Mana is supposed to matter for healers, and in the case of Holy paladins, that just wasn’t happening. We were seeing raid groups attempting to learn new bosses where the other healers were out of mana while the paladins were still at 90% of mana. We also thought the experience of paladins healing harder heroic dungeons was inconsistent with that of other healers, or our design intent. We thought it was only a matter of time before groups started going out of their way to stack paladins for raids or recruit them for dungeon runs, which of course is not our intent. For this reason, we thought it was important to address this point now rather than sitting on it until a fut

PvP Season 9 Has Begun
The first PvP season of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm is underway! Players are now able to compete in level-85 Rated Arenas for top gear, items, and titles -- and for the first time ever, they can enter level-85
to fight for the same rewards available through Arenas, along with the original World of Warcraft PvP titles. Players can also participate in unranked
, skirmishes that allow Battleground and Arena teams to hone their skills against opponents of their choosing -- even if they're in the same faction. So prepare yourselves, aspiring Grand Marshals and High Warlords, as the struggle between the Horde and the Alliance is about to get bloodier.

Latest Cataclysm Hotfixes Now Live!
Another day, another batch of hotfixes! Blizzard is clearly working around the clock to correct issues players are experiencing since Cataclysm, and I must commend 'em for it, even though they
been stealth nerfing things here and there.
Some noteable changes/fixes include:
Players should always be properly granted credit for completing the "Defending the Rift" quest event. (Vashj'ir)
Guild experience caps were being hit faster than expected. As a result, guild experience gained through questing has been reduced. (
See our blog
The droprates on all Bind-on-Equip items in Cataclysm dungeons have been reduced.
Disenchanted green items are now giving more materials as the item levels increase. This change also ensures armor items give dust more often than essence, and that weapons give more essence than dust.
and most importantly
Sheep packs no longer instantly respawn. (Uldum)
That's right, no more straight cheesing

Blizzard Launching "War Games": PvP Practice Matches
Blizzard is implementing a
system—a system broadly similar to the old Arena skirmish system.
Basically, with a simple text command, you can now start a "War Game" against another group in a battleground, or another arena team, the matches don't actually count for achievements or currency rewards, and you can only initiate them against other people on your realm—but it's a great way to test out new players in PvP, or hold grudge matches against old enemies.
The new system opens up with Arena Season 9!

Normal Loot Upgraded for Blackrock Caverns and Throne of the Tides
Astute Wowhead users will have actually caught this before I did—Blizzard has upgraded all the loot from Normal
Throne of the Tides
. The old items were ilvl 279, and have now been upgraded to ilvl 308.
You can see a full list of the changed items here:
It's a good thing, too. I've got to tell you, considering the fact that quest greens in
were already ilvl 272, 85 blues coming in at only ilvl 279 was a little odd—and it made it REALLY difficult to collect the gear necessary to meet the gear requirement for heroics.
I wonder if all future changes are going to be this...unannounced?

Guild XP Stealth Nerfed to 1/4?
Posts in the
Achievements and Guild Advancement
forum are indicating that
Guild XP gains have been nerfed by 75%.
It looks like only 1/4th of individual experience is contributing to guild experience now, rather than a full 1:1 ratio.
We tested this in game, and our findings sync up with the posts we're seeing in the forums.There hasn't been any announcement about this on the official forums—so we're not sure if this is a stealth nerf, a bug, or what. Keep your eyes peeled, and we'll update you as we know more.
Here's the original post:
We're getting 1/4th of xp now contributing to guild xp, and not a peep from any blue about this.
I'd like to trust that there's a reason for this, or an explanation.
Maybe on weekends it's reduced to 1/4th and weekdays it goes up to full to more easily allow caps to be hit weekdays.
Maybe rep affects xp contribution now.
Maybe it's a bug.
Maybe at 85 things even out.
Maybe they went overboard on the nerf, and are going to scale it back up some.
In any case, gett
