A few more hotfixes roll out today that were not included in yesterday’s blog post, the largest impacting PvP rewards.
Hi guys! Ktjn here, this is a first pass summarization of the Dev Q&A on 11/11/16 with Ion Hazzikostas. I’ll clean it up as the day goes on, but wanted to get summary out to you ASAP!! Was Karazhan as a 5man raid considered successful? We found it successful— it is reminiscent of the original instance in addition to posessing mind-blowing new encounters. We would love to continue doing these types of this, but also focus building on where they fit story-wise. We would love to do this type of instance again. How do you feel about the lengthy runbacks in Karahan? We’re looking to make some tweaks. there are shorter routes once you beat the opera but people tend to naturally retrace their steps.

The biggest take away from today’s hotfixes is item rewards from emissary caches will now match the quality of World Quest rewards. For example, if your World Quests reward 830+ gear, you should be seeing items of similar level.
Reputation will not be made account-wide, no, but we will be easing a couple of linked features with 7.1. First, Court of Stars and The Arcway will now unlock account-wide once each individual dungeon is completed once on an account. Second, World Quests will no longer have the “friendly” reputation unlock requirement for secondary/alt characters. Once you hit 110 on an alt, you will immediately receive a quest to speak with Khadgar to receive your Flight Master’s Whistle and unlock World Quests, as long as you’ve already unlocked World Quests on your main. Hope this answers your concerns! 🙂

We will keep this post updated with any further changes to the schedule. Previously the release schedule was as follows:
