Since being created back in Feb 2005 we have been a Thunderhorn alliance guild. However, due to the steady decline in both community and numbers we have decided to move to Ravencrest, a server with 4 times the population of Thunderhorn in order to improve recruitment and group experiences. If you were/are in the Highland Warriors and were not aware of this due to absense or just not reading the chat... then please follow. If you were a member and would like to come back, thats where we are now, we hope to see you there!


Welcome to the web site of the Highland Warriors.
The Highland Warriors are (almost) 14 year old alliance guild on the Ravencrest(EU), formally Thunderhorn, server whose aim is to enjoy the wonderful world of WOW in a fun and friendly guild. We are a level cap casual raiding guild. Our main guild focus is around the people, not the epics and our recruitment policy reflects this. If you are an epic seeking glory boy, Google is here, good luck. If you want to play with friends, have fun in a relaxed adult environment, enjoying wipes and kills, feel free to make an application here.
While we are casual we do still expect our members to work on their stuff and turn up when they say they will, although theres no attendance requirements.

I've been in the Highland Warriors since it was created back in Feb 2005, no breaks, no quits, no gaps. We are a steady guild even if the numbers fluctuate over time :) We hope to see you around!

Mythic+ Scaling Modifier Reduced in Shadowlands Pre-Patch - Tue, 22 Sep 2020 18:30:51 -0500
Shadowlands Pre-Patch Build 35989 contains a reduction to the Mythic+ Scaling factor, likely to accommodate for the loss of corruption effects. This means that dungeons will scale much slower with key level in the Pre-Patch.

Mythic+ Scaling Modifier in Pre-Patch

The Mythic+ Scaling Modifier in BFA Season 4 of 1.1 has been datamined to have changed to 1.065 in the Shadowlands Pre-Patch. The scaling modifier is applied once for every Keystone level, which makes it exponential!

Shadowlands Pre-Patch Build 35989 Class and Spell Changes - Old Potion Level Caps Changed - Tue, 22 Sep 2020 17:29:58 -0500
Another PTR build has hit the servers. There aren't many class and spell changes, but this build contains a change to many old potions, including Skystep Potions, which have had their level caps lowered from Level 50 to 49, making them immediately unusable once the Pre-Patch hits.

As this is a PTR build and not a Beta build, it's very very likely missing many spell and class changes for this week. But make sure to use your Skystep potions before the Pre-Patch hits!

A new build is currently being deployed on the 9.0.1 PTR servers. This is the first Release Candidate build, which means we are getting close to a 9.0.1 pre-patch release date! Patch 9.0.1 was also available for background download last week and Blizzard released their end of season warning yesterday, which usually occurs two weeks before the pre-patch.

Do you think we are getting the pre-patch on September 29th or October 6th?

Bonus Rolls Do Not Exist for Shadowlands Content - Tue, 22 Sep 2020 14:43:03 -0500
In a post discussing Shadowlands loot today, Blizzard confirmed that bonus rolls no longer exist in Shadowlands as their value is provided with the Great Vault and the overall reduction of loot quantities in the expansion.

What do you think of this change? Many players viewed the Great Vault as a replacement for just the weekly chest, but not necessarily for bonus rolls as well.

We've learned how to upgrade the Item Level of Legendaries in Shadowlands! You can craft a Legendary directly at the Item Level that you want, but if you want the Legendary's effect earlier and craft one at a lower rank, you can then upgrade it with using additional base crafting items.

We previously found out that Legendaries have 4 Ranks and 4 Different Item Levels.
