It seems silly to patch on a day when everyone in europe is off plus if it goes tits up most of your support personnel are on their hols?

And 60 meg patches? The patch server is giving me a max download rate of 20K so i expect to be finished by the end of next week....

It's available on fileplanet to download. Also if you know somebody that has it downloaded you could always grab it off them *hugs guildmates* Now just need the servers back up ;)

All dungeons now have a cap on group size to limit the number of
players that may enter the dungeon. It was necessary to add this cap
as raiding these dungeons trivialized much of the content. Because of
this change we can now look to adding better loot to them during future
content patches.

With that in mind, the dungeons below now have the following caps:
Onyxia/Molten Core - 40 members
Blackrock Spire - 15 members
Diremaul - 5 members
All other dungeons in the game will be capped at 10 members.
Several dungeons will be re-examined for balancing in light of this
change. In addition, will have their loot improved significatnly for
the next content patch.


How does this work? Will there only be, for example, 15 people in the Instance in Blackrock Spire or? Because that would be quite a bummer.

It's hard enough to get a good group going for an Instance, let alone being able to join it once a day as it's probably most of the time full.

Anyone could perhaps explain it a bit better as I'm confused.

no what it apparently means. is for raid grps. i have never tried this but i was tlking to a guild on argent dawn who have told me u can let a riad grp do a instance... this is news to me and tbh that would definatly make things easier... but now u cant do a full raid grp. u can do a raid grp with a cap amount of people or summat. im still a little confused. but i really dont think they would make it so only x people could do a instance at once in dif grps... that would just be silly and lead to alot of pissed of people hanging around alot

yeah, it means each instance of Blackrock spire can have a max of 15 players

and before now you could raid group instances

did a guild raid(think there was 10- 14 of us) into SM for a laugh when we were 30ish


was fun. was fast

Altough still some QQ about this patch
- Hunter dps decreased by 14%
- Pets now have slower attack speed/slower run speed

I thought GOA was a bad company but Blizzard is much worst. WTF do we have to dw their patch with a P2P downloader ???? We pay, can't they set up a download patch server like for DAOC ?

Some of those have been fixed, youll get drops but no quest items/credit/rewards in raid groups.

If its working properly now ;)
