Looks like Blizzard has lost more than just Chris Metzen this week; MMO Champion reports that World of Warcraft Lead Quest Designer Craig Amai has departed that team. Adding to that are departure tweets from Senior Director of Story & Creative Development James Waugh and WoW Lead Character Artist Tyson Murphy.

Meanwhile, BlizzardWatch notes that Metzen himself is getting a massive statue of himself and baby Winston (from Overwatch) in his honor.
So is it time to panic? Not really. As Amai put it,
And to put some of those worries aside, the WoW team is large and packed full of talent. There are always a few people shifting in and out.
