Classic News:

Estimates that Classic has increased WoW subs by 223%

Layering update

All realms will be on a single layer by the time Phase 2 is rolled out

All realms have a maximum of 2 layers – the 13 least populated realms are all permanently set to a single layer

Realms that are operating on more than one layer will soon say “layered”. You’ll only see Full/High/Medium/Low on realms set to a single layer

Will continue to offer free character moves to balance populations and manage login queues

No date for Phase 2, but confirmed that there will be 2 world bosses (Azuregos and Lord Kazzak).

Reports it will take more than 30 minutes to kill Azuregos — intentional on Blizzard’s part to prevent corpse running

Corpse running – when you run back to your body to resurrect – but when you are killed by Azuregos you get a Mark of Frost debuff that freezes you solid for 15 minutes.

Dire Maul also being reintroduced, as well as the Honor System and PvP rank rewards – Battlegrounds won’t come back til phase 3
