Wowhead launches Class Guides!

MMR issues hotfix incoming
Blizzard Community Representative Daxxarri responded to player concerns about gaining 0 points of Current Rating following wins in arena:
We recently implemented a hotfix to address a bug that allowed Personal Ratings to exceed Matchmaking Rating. As a result, some players may notice that they do not gain or lose Personal Rating in the wake of a match. As more matches are played, these ratings will normalize and converge to the correct rating, and Personal Rating will then rise or drop accordingly.
In the meantime, we will continue to monitor the situation and make further adjustments if necessary.
Following several responses expressing dissatisfaction, Senior Community Repres

News Roundup: Siege of Orgrimmar Normal/Heroic Cross-Realm Raids, Hotfixes and F2P Heroes
2014/03/18 at 2:59 PM
As well as these changes, we've got the latest hotfixes and the new free-to-play hero set in Heroes of the Storm: We've recently implemented an often requested feature to enable cross-realm raiding for
Siege of Orgrimmar
. Cross-realm BattleTag\u2122 and Real ID friends can now raid together and take the fight to
on Normal or Heroic difficulty. Players will be able to earn greater rewards such as
Reins of the Kor'kron War Wolf
or the title of Conqueror\/
Liberator of Orgrimmar
; both of which aren't available to be earned within Flexible or Raid Finder difficulty.This change is currently live.Correct -- current-tier Mythic raiding in Warlords will still be limited to players from a single server. In the meantime, though, this change may help guilds that are trying to recruit and grow in preparation for Mythic raiding. As for realm firsts, realm firsts are guild achievements; you need to be in a guild group, which is by definition 8\/10 or 20\/25 members coming from a single guild on a single server. You could theoretically have a couple of guests from a different server and still claim the realm first, but ultimately 80% of the group still has to be from the

PvP Season 15 Begins
2014/02/25 at 12:39 PM
PvP Season 15 begins today--we've got a full preview of Season 15 in our Patch 5.4.7 Guide, including vendors, transmog models, and costs!
Blizzard has covered some of the major season changes below, but one additional change is how equipping two PvP trinkets (
) now increases resilience by 5280, up from 2600.
With weapons at the ready and armor secured, it\u2019s time to kick off PvP Season 15! The playing field is even once more, and this is your chance to prove that true grit and steely determination are what it takes to become a champion. So grab your most trusted companions and teach your enemies the true definition of fear!
Before you set foot in an Arena or on a Battleground, keep in mind we\u2019ve made a few changes this season:
Conquest gear is now Item Level 550
The Dampening debuff will be applied in 2v2 matches 5 minutes after the start of an Arena match, and games will reach a draw at 20 minutes. Dampening decreases the effectiveness of healing spells by 1% every 10 seconds.
Base Resilience is now 77% (up from 72%).

Patch 5.4.7 and Season 15 PvP Guide
2014/02/18 at 1:29 PM
Patch 5.4.7 is scheduled to go live today on Tuesday, February 18th and this mini-guide covers all the patch changes and additions.
This is mainly a PvP patch with the start of Season 15. There are also some tweaks to Timeless Isle weapons and better loot from the Celestials. There is also a bug where all Recruit-a-Friend and Scroll-of-Resurrection mounts aren't showing up for players in-game, but that should be fixed next realm restart.
Also, earlier today we covered how Level 90 boosts were visible in the in-game store and cost $60, but after more server maintenance, that has been removed. No level 90 boosting today!
Celestials and Gear Changes
The four celestials on the

5.4.7 Official Patch Notes
2014/02/17 at 8:11 PM
Blizzard just posted the 5.4.7 official patch notes! This mini-patch is heavily-PvP focused, with changes to base resilience, Battle Fatigue, and Dampening.
Most importantly, there is a new PvP season with ilvl 550 gear. We'll have a complete look at the season's gear tomorrow when the patch goes live!

5.4.7 PTR: Build 17889 Spell Changes, Character Boosts, and More
2014/02/11 at 7:19 PM
The 5.4.7 PTR was updated with minor spell changes (as usual, take them with a grain of salt unless they're in the official patch notes), and the in-game mail you receive when boosting a character to 90. Players receive a set of high-level gear, and are sent their old outdated gear in the mail. Read more about the purchasable 90 boosts here.
Here's the datamined high-level gear:

PvP Season 14 Ending Soon
2014/02/04 at 7:55 PM
Blizzard just published a blog on the upcoming end of PvP Season 14--which could end in as little as two weeks. Past end-of-season announcements have been tied to new major patches, so it's reasonable to speculate that Season 14's end will be close to Patch 5.4.7's launch.
Season 15 will begin approximately a week after the end of Season 14.
As for Season 15 Prideful PvP gear, it's ilvl 550 and shares models with Season 14 PvP gear. However, the colors are swapped between factions so there's no faction-exclusive colors anymore.
For example, if you want to get the iconic blue priest set with white Tyrael wings, you can either spend
in Season 15 as Alliance for ilvl 522 Grievous Gear, or
in Season 15 as Horde for ilvl 550 Prideful Gear.
If you want the black\/red version instead, in Season 15 it will cost
for the Horde's ilvl 522 pieces and
for the Alliance's ilvl 550 pieces.
