Patch 2.6

Released 13 Sept 2014
Contributors: Jeremybell, Thifyx, Kimpossibru, Battlepanda, Royalite, Kayla, Elsen, Bellancia, Zillions and trusmoov


The forums have been styled to fit better into the look and feel of the site. Please report any bugs here. If you want to revert back to the original theme, you will find instructions here.

Event Management:

These improvements are to help raid leaders maintain their roster.

  • When you change your status to Not Coming, you will lose your approval for the event. If you change your sign up back to Definitely Coming, you will need to be re-approved.
  • If you change your role (ex: Healer to Tank), you will lose your approval for the event. You will need to be re-approved by the raid lead if you were previously Approved or Reserve. You will be given a visual warning when attempting to change role as a reminder of your removal from the Approved List before confirming your role change.

Raid Buff Tracker:

  • In order to help track buffs for lower level events (example: Herald of the Titans), buffs are only highlighted if the signed up character is of level to use the buff.
  • The buff bar should also now properly show Burning Wrath for Shaman regardless of specialization.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fix a bug where editing an event would unexpectedly change the ownership of the event.
  • Spacing issues with BattleTags in import strings will no longer block the OpenRaid Addon from sending invite requests (breaking the import string).
  • Fixed gradients on Firefox to show the same way they do in Chrome on the event pages.
  • Members using QuickRaid will no longer get locked in edit mode. Members will be able to edit QuickRaid events as intended.
