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
