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.

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

I'm assuming the video card is the limiting factor.

Looking at the recommend card.
The Geforce line:
7.0 was Jul 2016, and recommended a card from Feb 2014
8.0 was Jul 2018, and  recommended a card from Jan 2015
The minimum video card was from 2011 in both releases - Feb for 7.0, Mar for 8.0

This feels like less of a jump than Legion was.  Though I'll agree the span between minimum and recommended got larger.

Aye that and the doubling of the memory requirement :)

To be fair, the last time I had a machine with 4gb of memory was my laptop from 2007.  I admit that was pretty beefy for the time.  But its honestly been a long time since 4gb has been a reasonable amount of memory to have in a machine.

Community integration has been turned back on, at least on Earthen Ring.  (It was experimentally reenabled this morning, and then enabled on more servers after a successful test.  Possibly all servers at this point.)

Is anyone tracking mods and updates?

Malaprop had hacked on Altoholic a bit and had gotten it to stop throwing lua errors at startup (but was still throwing errors during some operations if you tried to use it).  I don't know that he had an interest in taking over maintenance on an ongoing basis.  [ETA: found more conversation; maybe he does, but I think he wants explicit permission from Thaoky, because it doesn't have a permissive license.]  Altoholic has had sporadic updates on Curse over 2017--not sure if that was by Thaoky or someone else--so I would expect to maybe see an update for 8.0 eventually, but it might be a while.  Other mods such as ArkInventory can fulfill the core function of tracking your inventory across alts.

You could try Clique as an alternative to Healbot.  It doesn't have its own unit frames, but works with the built-in unit frames or anyone else's (Grid etc.).  Clique has updated for 8.0.

I use ButtonTimers for what you use NeedToKnow for.  It has updated for 8.0.  I wish ButtonTimers had a better story for spells with charges but I'm not sure if any other mods have a better way to display those either.  Weakauras is another option.

Healbot has been updated.
