    Vous êtes donc assuré de trouver ce que vous cherchez chez nous peu importe votre style de jeu.

    THIS WEEK: ARENA SKIRMISHES
     
    All week, from anywhere in Azeroth, open the Group Finder (default hotkey: i), select the Player vs. Player tab on the bottom of the window, and then under Casual, choose Arena Skirmish and JOIN BATTLE. You’ll be matched up with teammates and provided with opponents to kill in the Arena. You can also queue for a Premade group or create your own group within the Premade tab. 
     
    Look for the following all week long:
     
    - Archmage Lan’dalock near Violet Hold in Dalaran has a quest for you. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it from within the Adventure Journal.
    - Quest requirement: Win 10 Arena PvP Skirmishes
    - Reward: A PvP loot box
    - Passive buff: +50% honor gains from Skirmishes
     
    If you’ve been looking to make some Honor gains, this is the week to do it!
     
    WHAT ARE BONUS EVENTS?
     
    The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.

    The next PTR build should have a round of changes aimed at addressing various concerns with Frost. The major issues we're focused on are:

    - The spec is too dominated by Breath of Sindragosa (which has knock-on effects on talent choice throughout the tree).
    - Breath of Sindragosa, when you do use it, can be maintained for far too long. In addition to causing the talent/legendary lock-in around it, it means the demand for continuous time on target is very strict for extended periods of time.
    - The spec has many talents/legendaries that (individually or taken together) flood it with resources. Breath contributes to this by encouraging you to take all of them, but it's also a problem on its own.
    Talent balance generally has to be reviewed, especially after addressing all of the time.
    - We're trying to limit the scope of the changes in the patch, to address the above without opening up the core rotation for changes.

    - All damage abilities increased by 27%
    - Hungering Rune Weapon (L58) and Glacial Advance (L100) swapped positions
    - Breath of Sindragosa damage increased by 10%
     
    We want to preserve the identity of Breath of Sindragosa, including the steady resource drain being the main limiting factor, and the expression of skill in optimizing around that. So in trying to avoid less natural solutions like capping the duration or redesigning how it works, we're trying to limit the talent/legendary synergies that cause huge variance in how long Breath can be maintained. And breaking the Breath of Sindragosa/Hungering Rune Weapon interaction, on its own, goes a very long way toward making Breath's duration more reasonable again. DPS adjustment for the change is being put mostly into the baseline spec rather than into the power of Breath, because it's currently so far ahead of other setups.
     
    - Murderous Efficiency (L56->L57), Frozen Pulse (L57->L90), and Runic Attenuation (L90->L56) swapped positions
    - Hungering Rune Weapon duration 12s (from 15s) and additionally grants 20% haste
    - Bugfix: Hungering Rune Weapon correctly generates a Rune every 1.5s instead of every 1s
    - Murderous Efficiency chance 50% (from 65%)
    - Horn of Winter cooldown 45s (from 30s)
    - Koltira’s Newfound Will generates 1 Rune (from 2) and now causes Obliterate to deal 10% extra damage
     
    Using even a small subset of all of the above effects causes the rotation to be quite flooded. They are all being either weakened in power (with compensation to the baseline spec), or given non-resource-granting effects for part of their value. In addition, the two most egregious offenders (Murderous Efficiency and Horn of Winter) can no longer be taken together.
     
    Overall, there should now be a much broader set of talent combinations that produce a good-feeling rotation in which there are resources to do something on most GCDs, but you're still able to spend them down. Including, for example, during Hungering Rune Weapon, which is overly hectic or frustrating right now when you can't spend all of its resources.
     
    In addition, the talent rearrangement puts Frozen Pulse on a row with two predominantly AoE talents, which is a better home for it. The Frozen Pulse/Icy Talons ("machinegun") synergy is preserved, but can no longer be taken alongside Runic Attenuation as well.
     
    NB: The Hungering Rune Weapon bug may be fixed on live shortly as well, after we test the fix and analyze the impact.
     
    - Icy Talons bonus 15% (from 10%)
    - Shattering Strikes bonus 60% (from 40%)
    - Freezing Fog effect 20% (from 30%)
    - Obliteration duration 10s (from 8s)
    - Frozen Pulse damage reduced by 39%
     
    Minor talent rebalancing to match the above rearrangements and talent changes; numbers are likely to be updated as the rest of the changes settle into place.
     
    EDIT: Added Frozen Pulse change which was missed when I copied changes into the post earlier. As with the other changes, this is meant to make Frozen Pulse balanced within its new row, and meant to be accounted for in the overall DPS increase above.
     
    Breath can retain its role as a talent that encourages building around it to some degree (and its synergies with things like Runic Attenuation, Koltira's Newfound Will, and Seal of Necrofantasia are preserved). But without the overpowering Hungering Rune Weapon interaction, there is a lot more room for other builds to compete, and we've buffed the spec's baseline damage a great deal to shift the landscape towards all talents being closer together in DPS. As always, we'll continue to examine all of these changes based after people can start to test them on PTR.

    World of Warcraft esports is expanding into the fast-paced, highly competitive world of Mythic Keystone dungeons with the Mythic Dungeon Invitational. We’re looking for the best of the best from around the world to battle it out for a share of $100,000.
     


    GREAT EXPECTATIONS, GREAT REWARDS
     
    We’re looking for the best players in the world, but first you need to show us you have the right stuff to compete. Teams aspiring to battle on the global stage must first push themselves through a gauntlet of Mythic Keystone dungeons, taking on increasingly difficult Mythic Keystones and earning the best scores on the Proving Grounds.
     
    Top scoring contenders will be invited to join as one of 32 outstanding teams from around the world, competing for a share of the $100,000 prize pool—and ultimately claiming bragging rights of the #1 spot. Once chosen, 8 teams from the Americas, 8 from Europe, 8 from China, and 8 from Asia-Pacific will be tapped to face the challenge, proving they have what it takes to go all the way to the finals.
     
    THE PROVING GROUNDS [JULY 25–AUGUST 8]
     
    From July 25 to August 8, teams aiming to secure an invitation to the top 32 will be challenged to push their way through Mythic Keystone dungeons to achieve their best scores. At the end of the two weeks, they’ll need to submit their top score using this form. Note that any entries received prior to the end of the Proving Grounds period (August 8) will not be considered.
     
    Remember, to be truly competitive among the World of Warcraft elite, your team must master multiple dungeons. We’ll be judging performance across the 5 dungeons in which the team achieves the highest Keystone Level during those two weeks.
     
    THE BIG SHOWDOWN
     
    Beginning in September, the invited contenders will compete in the Mythic Keystone Dungeon Invitational for their share of the prize pool. Each region’s contenders will be a part of a single-day broadcast in which they will face a series of elimination rounds until just 2 are left standing to represent their region on the global stage.
     
    RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
     
    Keystone levels and affixes will be determined by Blizzard
    The first match of each series will take place in a dungeon pre-determined by Blizzard.
    Once the final 8 regional teams have been determined, they’ll move on to a single-elimination bracket where they’ll go head-to-head.
     
    WHERE TO WATCH
     
    If you’re an esports fan, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. You can catch the action on the Warcraft Twitch channel. Keep an eye on here or on the official World of Warcraft Esports site for more details!
