WoW: Dragonflight: Key hammering is a thing of the past, thanks "Hold down cast" (1)

The Blizzard developers recently invited members of the Community Council to discuss certain topics related to WoW: Wrath of the Lich King. A few topics came up such as an item level squeeze for Tier 9 and Tier 10, ID lockout changes for Trial of the Crusader, Wintergrasp and server/faction balance. Based on those published later Posts in the official WoW forum we summarize the most important things for you below.

WoW | Wrath of the Lich King Classic is coming – that’s changing!

Item level squeeze

Back when Trial of the Crusader was released, Ulduar suddenly became completely irrelevant to most raids. The reason: In PdK there was much better loot even on normal, the item level jump was enormous. In order to prevent a similar effect in WotLK Classic, the Blizzard designers are considering an item level reduction for the raid content from PdK onwards, including Icecrown Citadel, Onyxia and the Ruby Sanctum. The PvP rewards from seasons 7 and 8 should also be adjusted.

A goal should be that the Hardmode loot from Ulduar is slightly better than the loot from PdK Normal. That way, guilds would have another valid reason to keep visiting Ulduar. And by the way, the later raid instances would also be a bit more challenging due to the item level squeeze.
