World Of Warcraft now automatically blocks messages containing "reserved words" such as slurs and other banned or derogatory language. WoW-focused outlet Wowhead discovered the change on live servers recently and published a news post outlining the change.To get more news about buy wow gold safe, you can visit official website.

As with most online games, WoW has used a text filter to automatically censor and filter certain words for years now. However, this new system that Wowhead discovered--which only appears to apply to one particular racial slur at the moment--would appear to indicate that Blizzard is planning to punish derogatory language more harshly in the future. The new system blocks the message from being sent on live servers entirely, though you can still send the message via chat.
Given the fact that it only applies to one word, it's likely that this is just an experimental feature for now, but it could soon expand to include more "reserved words." In other WoW news, the game's Chains of Domination update has been out on the game's Public Test Realm for a few days now. Blizzard also recently released a Lich King Arthas statue as part of its 30th anniversary celebration.World of Warcraft: Shadowlands' latest big update, Chains of Domination, is now available to testers on the MMO's public test realm.

Announced at BlizzCon this year, Chains of Domination is the first major update to Shadowlands. It introduces a new area, Korthia, which has more quests and activities, while a new raid and mega-dungeon are also featured in the update.

Much of the Chains of Domination content is featured in the PTR, but the Sanctum of Domination raid is not available just yet. It's slated to go live on April 16, which is when the Tarragrue and Guardian of the First Ones encounters from it will be available to testers.
