Just as promised, the Ashenvale adjustments are live. Blizzard has rolled out significant updates to the PvP event, easing many of the community’s dissatisfaction.

Season of Discovery: Ashenvale Adjustments Is Live

This fix primarily targeted a key source of dissatisfaction: Ashenvale’s Reputation rewards. For further details on why players were so unhappy with it, you can find additional information here:

Blizzard was quick to acknowledge players’ concerns. And true to their word, the developers implemented the fix just a few days after Josh Greenfield addressed the issues on his Twitter. The following Ashenvale adjustments are live now:

“The following changes are now live:

  • When a character makes any hostile action against an opposing faction Lieutenant (e.g. Keepers of the Grove, Blademasters) or faction leader in the various objective areas, they will receive reputation when that enemy dies.
    • It must be an offensive action (harmful spell, harmful ability, melee attack, or ranged attack) against an enemy to receive reputation.
      • This also affects Healers who must use an offensive actions against the Lieutenant or faction leader.
  • Characters will receive reputation even if they are dead or no longer nearby as long as they are still in the zone when the enemy dies.
  • Characters will receive 200 reputation for killing a Lieutenant and all members of the winning faction will receive 200 reputation when the faction leader dies.
  • The winning team will also receive 100 reputation per friendly Lieutenant remaining.
    • Example: If there are two Lieutenants alive when the battle is won, a character will gain 200 reputation plus whatever was earned from defeating objectives plus the 200 reputation from killing the enemy faction leader (assuming the character used an offensive action against the faction leader).
  • The Trainee’s Sentinel Nightsaber and Trainee’s Outrider Wolf now require Friendly reputation with the Silverwing Sentinels and Warsong Outriders respectively (was Honored).
  • Players now have 60 minutes to complete the Ashenvale PvP event (was 30 minutes).”

Looking ahead, WoW Classic Senior Game Producer Josh Greenfield has unveiled a roadmap for Ashenvale:

He stated that Blizzard will prioritize communication through their official channels rather than personal Twitter accounts moving forward. This aims to increase the information reach. However, Josh Greenfield will still retweet any new updates on his Twitter account. He also expressed gratitude towards SoD players and their valuable feedback.
