The amount of Xp you get for Herbing and mining in your garrison has gone up a lot. At level 102 it is 3564 of 669000 (0.53% of level). At 108 is was 4800 of 705000 (0.68% of a level)
That change happened a while ago - 7.3, I think.

I do not think so, last week I was getting around 1000 a go.

I got tired of losing to people who just had the right legendary.  Most of my games felt like I was just about to win and then they would play the "I win" card and I would lose.   Once the new expansion lands, I'll likely poke my nose in for a little bit.    I've started playing "duelyst"  which is a TCG combined with a TBS.  I haven't really played it enough to know if it suffers from some of the same problems, but the starting user experience isn't bad.   I'm winning pvp with a starter deck and the decks I'm currently facing seem varied, which is nice.

Is anyone tracking mods and updates? There was some discussion in the DC channel yesterday that I wanted to try to capture.

Someone (?) indicated that they were trying to take on updating altoholic as the mod owner has left WoW and hasn't updated in quite a while.

I'm in desperate need of a healbot update, or some other mod that is updated regularly and lets me hotkey healing spells onto a small display. I've tried mouseover macros and I'm just too slow on movement - I really have muscle memory for things like alt-click, shift-click, and so on that I can map to the right spells across several healing classes (e.g. alt-click is my cleanse on every healer).

I use NeedToKnow as a mod that gives me timer bars for classes that need to track uptime on things - most DPS classes have to do  that for at least one thing. It's currently broken as well. Any help here appreciated.

Most of the other mods I use seem to be updating. If you're like me and use Twitch to update mods be aware that there's a persistent bug that the client does not pick up mod updates when you refresh it; you have to close and reopen it manually for it to truly capture updates. I've talked to the guy who writes DBM and he's also frustrated by this - he's talked to Twitch several times and they keep claiming it's fixed when it's not.

TSM version 4 is now in open beta (that happened a couple of weeks ago), and will release in about a week.  It has a very different look from TSM 3 and some new functionality, but most importantly for people with a lot of alts, it doesn't seem to cause the same bad initial login experience as TSM 3 did.

Wowhead has listed the system requirements for BfA.

Quite a jump from Legion and a large step from Minimum to recommended.


For reference Legion was:
Quote
OS: Windows XP/Windows Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8/Windows 10 with latest service pack
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 or AMD Phenom II X3 720
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GT 440 or AMD Radeon HD 5670 or Intel HD Graphics 5000
RAM: 2 GB
And the recommended rig:

OS: Windows 10 64-bit with latest service pack
CPU: Intel Core i5-3330, AMD FX-6300, or better
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti or AMD Radeon R7 260X or better
RAM: 4 GB
At either end of the spectrum, you'll also need 45 GB of available hard drive space, a broadband internet connection, a keyboard and a mouse, and a display device capable of at least 1024x768 resolution.

Blizzard brought down the servers to address a disconnect issue, and then temporarily disabled the communities feature.  Blizzard groups created via the client still exist and are visible in the launcher, but the guild pane currently looks like it did before the patch and doesn't have any community or group integration.

I think they say "maximum level of the content" because old dungeons scale up with your level to a maximum (e.g. up to level 70 for a BC dungeon).

The patch notes include "Legacy Loot Rules" that supposedly are based on the "maximum level of the content". That's slightly confusing since I think it's talking about raids and aren't those bosses always your level +3? Or did that change? I assume this is to make it easier for people to farm stuff out of old instances/raids so I'm guessing it's just a wording weirdness.
