In-game fixes for Tuesday September 22nd


While Patch 3.2.2 has been released today, there are still a good number of additional in-game fixes that were applied after the patch went live. Those fixes are all detailed after the break.

However, one thing that hasn't been talked about yet by Blizzard officially, but WoW.com can confirm through tests done by staff members, is that AV now has a 70 to 79 bracket, and an 80 bracket. In addition XP gains in AV have been cut in half for those earning XP in the 70 to 79 bracket. Where objectives used to give around 18k XP, they now only give 9k XP.

Again, there has been no official word from Blizzard on this yet, but we're expecting them to say something anytime now.

The full list of official in-game fixes after the break.

Update 9:00 p.m. EDT
: Bornakk has since confirmed the AV changes.

Battleground leveling and experience changes in Patch 3.2: Twinks v. Twinks


There was a big announcement today on upcoming Battleground changes. However there are two critical pieces of PvP information that people everywhere, especially twinks, are going to go crazy over.
  • You will be able to level through PvP Battlegrounds
  • You will be able to turn off experience gains
This means that you'll be able to level your character simply by competing in PvP in battlegrounds and completing objectives, such as capturing the flag in WSG or securing resources in AB. Not from killing other players. This opens up a whole new way of playing the game at the earlier levels, one that will add a significant dynamic to it.

The second major change is the ability to turn off this experience gain in Battlegrounds and the rest of WoW (at a cost of 10g). This means that twinks are a viable and supported option in WoW, and lets those players who want to sit in the 30s bracket enjoy it to their heart's content.

Additionally, if you have turned off experience gains, you'll be placed in separate battlegrounds from those that have them turned on. That means that twinks will play against other twinks, and not against those players who are just interested in the bracket from a more casual perspective.

The floodgates of Patch 3.2 are wide open now. Enjoying it?
Patch 3.2 will bring about a new 5, 10, and 25 man instance to WoW, and usher in a new 40-man battleground called the Isle of Conquest. WoW.com will have you covered every step of the way, from extensive PTR coverage through the official live release. Check out WoW.com's Guide to Patch 3.2 for all the latest!
