Classic Blog: Externals Cap and More

Last updated: October 19, 2022

Warcraft Logs Updates

Hi all!

This is Vel, back with another update for Classic. I'm sticking with a bit of a blog format to try to keep you up to date. We had a new record amount of users on Classic last week, so I know you're all excited for WotLK, and so are we! This post will go through some of the latest updates we're doing for Warcraft Logs and parsing in the Classic space.

External Cap

On Retail, for Season 4, we are experimenting with Externals Cap. We have now implemented this for Classic also.

This means you will only be able to get Power Infusion from the equivalent of one priest. The number of externals received cannot exceed the number of which could be given to one individual by one partner. However, you may receive each buff from more than one player, so long as the number of buffs you receive remains under the cap. This is implemented from 18th October and does not apply retroactively.

Any parses that break these restrictions will not be ranked.

Soul Revival

As a lot of you have noticed, the prepatch event is still up on some servers. This means the Soul Revival buff has been obtainable for some. We are now banning this buff from the upcoming reset in each region. We believe the current parses are easily beatable, so this won't apply retroactively.

Complete Raid UI WIP

We have been working on ways to show the time penalty and Complete Raid UI on the site. You can now see the trash requirements and the time penalty in the encounter overview!

A future update will make the complete raid clickable and give you an easy way to view boss and boss+trash rankings. This part is still a work in progress, but hope to have it live soon!

Trash Requirements Update

We have removed Vigilant Shades trash requirement in Naxxramas.

Read the 10 Man Naxxramas Speedrun Requirements article.

Read the 25 Man Naxxramas Speedrun Requirements article.

Malygos P3 Downtime Removal

We have removed phase 3 from counting for DPS parses on Malygos. This implementation is similar to the Reliquary of Souls downtime removal in Black Temple.

This is only for Damage parses, and not for Healing as we currently don't have any healing downtime removal code.

Hallow's End

This has been brought up on Discord a few times already, but to clarify - all Hallow's End buffs are fine to use.
