Hotfixes: June 5, 2020

Here you'll find a list of hotfixes that address various issues related to World of Warcraft: Battle For Azeroth and WoW Classic. Some of the hotfixes below take effect the moment they were implemented, while others may require scheduled realm restarts to go into effect. Please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch update. This list will be updated as additional hotfixes are applied.

Hotfixes


June 5, 2020

WoW Classic

  • More world buffs have been added to the Advanced Combat Log and will now be recorded when starting a raid encounter.

June 4, 2020

WoW Classic

  • When using Advanced Combat Logging, the presence of various world buffs (e.g. Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer) will now be consistently recorded when starting a raid encounter.

June 2, 2020

Items and Rewards

  • Corrupted Items
    • Gushing Wound (Corruption Effect) damage over time effect has been reduced by 35%.
      • Developer’s note: While we try to avoid changes like this outside of regular balance patch intervals, the changes we've made to the Corruption system to make Corruption more targetable and attainable risks turning a rare but powerful Corruption into the optimal choice in nearly every situation. With this reduction in damage, Gushing Wound will remain reasonably powerful in all situations, but will no longer be the most efficient source of damage per Corruption in all situations.
    • Fixed a bug that caused the lockout time of interrupted spell schools to increase when the Ineffable Truth Corruption effect ends.

June 1, 2020

Quests

  • Bowmistress Li should once again be available on Serpent's Spine to offer the quests "Falling Down" and "Nope".

    • N’Zoth the Corruptor
      • Fixed a bug that could cause Spike Tentacles to repeatedly target a player with multiple casts of Pain Spike in succession rather than randomizing targets.

May 21, 2020

Items and Rewards

  • Ashjra’kamas, Shroud of Resolve
    • Fixed a bug that caused Ashjra’kamas, Shroud of Resolve to despawn only the most recently spawned Eye of Corruption instead of all active Eyes of Corruption.
  • Preserved Contaminant
    • Preserved Contaminant can now be applied to all items that have been cleansed of Corruption prior to this week’s maintenance.

Quests

  • The quests within the Shadowbarb Drone questline can no longer be completed with Party Sync activated.
    • Developers’ note: Issues using Party Sync to complete this questline could cause progress on the Aqir Hatchling faction to reset.

May 20, 2020

Items and Rewards

  • Preserved Contaminant
    • Preserved Contaminant can now apply a Corruption effect to Season 4 crafted items, excluding items that cannot be Corrupted such as engineering goggles (Azerite) and alchemist stones (trinkets). Crafted items still cannot be initially Corrupted when they are crafted.

May 19, 2020

Items and Rewards

  • Echoes of Ny'alotha
    • MOTHER now offers several Preserved Contaminants, a new item to purchase with Echoes of Ny’alotha. Preserved Contaminants allow for a specific Corruption effect to be applied to any uncorrupted item that can be Corrupted or any items that have been cleansed after this week’s restart.

May 18, 2020

Classes

  • Demon Hunter
    • Fixed a bug that prevented Haste from reducing the global cooldown of Darkness.

Items and Rewards

  • Torn Pages of “Fear and Flesh” and “The Final Truth”
    • [With regional restarts] The number of Torn Pages of “Fear and Flesh” and “The Final Truth” quest items required for the rank 10–15 cloak quests has been reduced.
      • Ranks 10 and 11 now require 4 Torn Pages (was 6 and 8).
      • Ranks 13–15 now require 2 Torn Pages (was 4, 6, and 8).
      • Developer’s note: This change will make each of the quests completable in a single Horrific Vision if a player completes all objectives within the instance. This should help newer characters catch up quicker to their peers.
  • Echoes of Ny'alotha
    • [With regional restarts] Echoes of Ny’alotha now drop after completing the quest “Beginning the Descent” and obtaining Ashjra’kamas, Shroud of Resolve.
    • [With regional restarts] Echoes of Ny’alotha are much more abundant than before. The droprate of Echoes of Ny’alotha and the cost to purchase items with Echoes of Ny’alotha has been increased by a factor of 5.
      • Developer’s note: When these changes take effect, a Major Assault will award 625 Echoes of Ny’alotha, whereas before this change they awarded 125. The cost to purchase an Essence from MOTHER will also increase by the same factor, from 500 to 2500. If you are planning to purchase a Rank 3 Essence with Echoes of Ny’alotha that you’ve already earned, you should do so now, before these costs change.
    • [With regional restarts] MOTHER now offers Vessels of Horrific Visions in exchange for 1750 Echoes of Ny’alotha.
      • Developer’s note: This is to provide an additional source of access to Horrific Visions that does not require completion of Assaults.
    • Developer's note: After the weekly restart, characters can start building up Echoes of Ny’alotha. The Preserved Contaminants Corruption vendor items that will use this currency is in the final testing phases and we hope to have them available from MOTHER as soon as possible.

May 14, 2020

Items and Rewards

  • The vendor sell price of Enchanter's Umbral Wand has been reduced by 40%.

May 13, 2020

Creatures and NPCs

  • Rare elite creatures found in Nazjatar with War Mode enabled now drop 1 Nazjatar Battle Commendation.

May 11, 2020

May 5, 2020

Character

  • Players can now restore one deleted character every 7 days (was 15 days).

Dungeons and Raids

  • Freehold
    • Ring of Booty
      • (Finally) fixed an issue that could cause Trothak's Flailing Sharks to move too quickly when players used certain trinkets or area-of-effect spells as they became active.

WoW Classic

  • Fixed an issue that caused players to immediately accept a Zul'Gurub instance lockout if they were in a party with a player who defeated Gahz'ranka.

May 1, 2020

Achievements

  • Ny’alotha, the Waking City
    • N’Zoth the Corruptor
      • Fixed an issue where Basher, Corruptor and Spike Tentacles could get stuck under the ground if they are stunned when Psychus is slain in Raid Finder, Normal, and Heroic difficulties.

April 28, 2020

WoW Classic

  • In the Americas region, battleground holidays now start at the same time for all realms.
    • Developers’ note: While this is a change to how original WoW worked, with battlegroups of realms including only realms that were in the same time zone, it allows us to treat US-East and US-West realms as a single battlegroup for the purposes of matchmaking. Players on US-East realms will now begin and end their battleground holidays three hours later than before.
  • Players can now restore deleted characters on locked realms, if the character is applicable for restoration.
  • Fixed a bug that could sometimes cause fewer than all four Dragons of Nightmare to spawn as intended.
  • Many item enchantments now stack with certain items that provide an identical buff.
  • Many item enchantments that previously took up a hidden buff slot no longer consume a hidden buff slot.

April 27, 2020

Classes

  • [With regional restarts] Mistweaver Monks’ Rising Mist can now extend a heal-over-time effect by up to 100% of its original duration.
    • Developers’ note: When we buffed Rising Mist with the intention of making melee Mistweaver a viable playstyle, players discovered that stacking extreme amounts of haste and cooldown reduction can reach a breaking point of infinite duration on Mistweaver Monks’ heal-over-time effects. Even though it’s exciting to see people discover new builds and interactions, the sheer power level in this case is likely to have a negative effect on the healing game for the remainder of Battle for Azeroth. This change is intended to prevent the infinite extension, while allowing Rising Mist to still enable an effective melee playstyle.

April 22, 2020

Player versus Player

  • Resolved an issue that prevented Heart of Darkness (Azerite Trait) from being reduced by 50% when engaged in combat with enemy players.

April 21, 2020

Dungeons and Raids

  • Operation: Mechagon
    • K.U.-J.O.
      • K.U.-J.O. should now always find a target for the Air Drop crate.
  • Ny’alotha, the Waking City
    • Dark Inquisitor Xanesh
      • Health reduced by 5% on all difficulties.
      • Terror Wave cast time increased to 5.5 seconds on Mythic difficulty (was 5 seconds).

      • Umbral Eruption missile travel time increased to 2.5 seconds on all difficulties (was 2 seconds).
    • The Hivemind
      • Aqir Darter health reduced by 10% on Mythic difficulty.
      • Psionic Resonance damage reduced by 10% on Mythic difficulty.
  • Developers’ note: Now that the Hall of Fame for Ny'alotha is full and the raid is available on Mythic difficulty to cross-realm groups in all regions, we're undertaking an additional tuning pass aimed at smoothing out the difficulty curve on Mythic for groups that are beginning or continuing progression through Ny'alotha.

April 20, 2020

Dungeons and Raids

  • Ny’alotha, the Waking City
    • Drest’agath
      • [With regional restarts] Reduced the health of Eye of Drest'agath, Maw of Dest’agath, and Tentacle of Drest’agath by 8% on Mythic difficulty.

      • [With regional restarts] Organs and Bloods’ health reduced by 5% on all difficulties.

      • [With regional restarts] Corrupted Blood maximum radius reduced by 10% on Mythic difficulty.
    • Ra-Den the Despoiled
      • [With regional restarts] Reduced the percent value of Decaying Wound to 75% of the target’s current health on Mythic difficulty (was 100%).

      • Thought Harvester

      • [With regional restarts] Evoke Anguish's damage has been reduced by 15% on Mythic difficulty.
  • Developers’ note: Now that the Hall of Fame for Ny'alotha is full and the raid is available on Mythic difficulty to cross-realm groups in all regions, we're undertaking an additional tuning pass aimed at smoothing out the difficulty curve on Mythic for groups that are beginning or continuing progression through Ny'alotha.

WoW Classic

  • Gurubashi enchantments from Zul'Gurub will no longer apply to characters who are not the correct Class or are lower than level 60.

April 7, 2020

Dungeons and Raids

  • Ny’alotha, the Waking City
    • Resolved an issue that could cause Horrific Hemorrhages to spawn in incorrect positions on Mythic difficulty.

Blackrock Foundry

  • Operator Thogar
    • Resolved an issue that prevented all of the passengers from disembarking a train before and during the encounter.

March 31, 2020

Dungeons and Raids

  • Ashvane Warden
    • The ground visual for Lockdown should remain visible when Projected Textures is disabled in the System Settings menu.
  • Ashvane Warden
    • The ground visual for Lockdown should remain visible when Projected Textures is disabled in the System Settings menu.

Items and Rewards

  • Legion Raids and Dungeons
    • [With regional restarts] Legacy loot rules are now in place for Legion raids and dungeons.
      • Developers’ note: Standard encounters drop an amount of loot scaled by the amount of players in the raid, which results in fewer pieces for players who defeated encounters in small groups or as a solo player. In Legacy loot rules, raid and dungeon encounters will drop a fixed quantity of class-agnostic loot, regardless of the group size.

March 25, 2020

Battle Pets

  • Black Chitinous Plate should now drop more frequently from Skikx'traz in Uldum while the Aqir Assault is active.

Mounts

  • Malevolent Drone should now drop more frequently from Corpse Eater in Uldum while the Aqir Assault is active.

March 24, 2020

Dungeons and Raids

  • Atal’Dazar
    • Priestess Alun’za
      • The ground visual for Tainted Blood should remain visible when Projected Textures is disabled in the System Settings menu.
  • Temple of Sethraliss
    • Spark Channeler
      • The ground visual for Call Lightning should remain visible when Projected Textures is disabled in the System Settings menu.

March 20, 2020

Dungeons and Raids

  • Ny’alotha, the Waking City
    • Resolved an issue in which Adaptive Membrane was being removed after player-sourced absorb shields, unintentionally making the mechanic harder than intended.

Essences

  • Restrictions on acquiring role-specific Azerite Essences from MOTHER have been lifted.
    • Rank 3 tanking, healing, and damage-specific Essences are now grouped together and can be purchased with Echoes of Ny’alotha when at least one is unlocked on a character.
      • Spark of Inspiration, Unwavering Ward, Strength of the Warden (obtained from Horrific Visions)
      • Touch of the Everlasting, Spirit of Preservation, Breath of the Dying (obtained from reputation with Rajani)
      • Blood of the Enemy, Artifice of Time, Sphere of Suppression (obtained from Battlegrounds)
      • Condensed Life Force, Vitality Conduit, Azeroth’s Undying Gift (obtained from raiding in The Eternal Palace)
      • Essence of the Focusing Iris, Life-Binder’s Invocation, Anima of Life and Death (obtained from Mythic Keystone dungeons)
    • Developers’ note: This update to the new Echoes of Ny'alotha system is intended to make Essences much more available to your characters whose specializations put them in different roles (tanking, healing, damage). A side-effect of this change is that even a single character now has a way to obtain these off-role Essences, and can either use Echoes to purchase them from MOTHER or use the original means of acquisition.

March 18, 2020

World Quests

  • Emissary Quests turn-ins no longer award 10 bonus reputation when a Contract is active. No other quest turn-ins are affected.
    • Developers' note: This seemingly random change was done to address an obscure bug that arose after the introduction of Echoes of Ny'alotha this past week. There is an internal limit on the number of different rewards that a single WoW quest can offer, and adding Echoes into the mix could push some Emissary quests past that cap in certain situations, preventing those quests from being turned in. Raising that long-standing limit is beyond the scope of a hotfix, and removing the conditional 10 bonus rep was the least disruptive fix in the short term.

March 16, 2020

Dungeons and Raids

  • Ny’alotha, the Waking City
    • Resolved an issue that caused players to get locked inside the Chamber of Heart if both Carapace of N'Zoth and N’Zoth the Corruptor encounters were defeated but other bosses undefeated on Mythic difficulty.
    • N’Zoth the Corruptor
      • Tank-specialization characters should no longer be targeted by Paranoia on all difficulties.
        • Developers’ note: Paranoia’s coordination requirements when tanks are involved is a bit higher than we’d like. This fix prevents tanks from being targeted altogether, preventing awkward moments where a ranged character would need to run a long distance to meet up with a tank partner.
    • Mythic Keystone Dungeon
      • Tidesage Council
        • Blessing of the Tempest should now be more visible when active on Galecaller Faye.
        • Blowback damage reduced by 20%.
        • Slicing Blast damage reduced by 20%.
      • Waycrest Manor
        • Reduced the rate at which members of the Heartsbane Triad gain energy from the Focusing Iris, resulting in an increased delay before Dire Ritual is cast.

Items and Rewards

  • Corrupted Items
    • [With regional restarts] All equipment rewards from Horrific Visions are now Corrupted.
      • Developers’ note: We’ve heard from many players that Corrupted Items were not obtainable enough, limiting their ability to play with the system and its inherent tradeoffs. This change will substantially increase the number of Corrupted Items reliably earned each week, allowing players to choose from among a greater selection of Corrupted pieces and enjoy those that work best in a given situation.
    • Twisted Appendage no longer benefits from buffs like Power Word: Shield or Earthen Wall.
    • Twisted Appendage and Infinite Stars can no longer trigger more than once every 12 seconds during player versus player combat.
  • Heart of Azeroth
    • [With regional restarts] Players who have Rank 3 Azerite Essences on at least one character can now more easily acquire those Essences on other characters on the same account via a new currency: Echoes of Ny’alotha. MOTHER will offer any eligible character a Rank 3 Essence for 500 Echoes of Ny’alotha each. Any player who is eligible to purchase at least one Essence from MOTHER will now receive Echoes of Ny’alotha from a wide range of activities in current content:
      • Black Empire Assault – 125 Echoes of Ny’alotha
      • Aqir/Amathet/Mantid/Mogu Assault – 75 Echoes of Ny’alotha
      • Horrific Visions – 50 Echoes of Ny’alotha, plus 25 per additional objective completed (i.e. 150 Echoes of Ny’alotha for a full clear)
      • Emissary Quest – 50 Echoes of Ny’alotha
      • Heroic Darkshore Warfront – 75 Echoes of Ny’alotha
      • Normal/Heroic/Mythic Ny’alotha raid bosses – 15-25 Echoes of Ny’alotha each, once per week per boss
      • Ny’alotha Raid Finder wings – 25 Echoes of Ny’alotha
      • Random Battleground wins – 15-25 Echoes of Ny’alotha
      • Rated Arena wins – 10-25 Echoes of Ny’alotha baseline, scaling up with PvP rank
      • Rated Battleground wins – 35 Echoes of Ny’alotha baseline, scaling up with PvP rank
      • Weekly PvP Cache – 175 to 300 Echoes of Ny’alotha, based on PvP rank
      • Mythic Keystone dungeon end-of-run chest – 3 Echoes of Ny’alotha per Keystone Level (i.e. 30 Echoes of Ny’alotha for a Mythic 10)
      • Weekly Mythic Keystone Dungeon Cache – 20 Echoes of Ny’alotha per highest Keystone Level
        • Developers’ note: The general goal here is that doing Assaults and associated Horrific Visions should provide enough to get at least one Rank 3 Essence of your choice per week. Doing other content you like (PvP, dungeons, or raids) will increase that significantly, depending on the level of content you’re doing. Of course, Essences can still be earned normally via their associated activities, so if you want to get your Essence of the Focusing Iris directly via Mythic Keystone dungeons and then buy others from MOTHER, that’s now an option. Within a couple of weeks of hitting max-level on your alt, you should be able to obtain your preferred Essences by playing the game as you usually would.

          Please note: Echoes of Ny’alotha may appear to replace Azerite in the Emissary and PvP reward panes, however, it does not. Echoes of Ny’alotha are always additive with existing rewards. We believe that it is more important to release this update with a reward display issue than hold the change for a fix. We expect to fix the display issue in the next week or two.

          For more information read our forum post.


March 11, 2020

Dungeons and Raids

  • Ny’alotha, the Waking City
    • Characters are now required to have Ashjra’kamas, Shroud of Resolve to queue for Raid Finder Wing 4, “The Waking Dream”.
      • Developers’ note: Due to the mechanics of both Wing 4’s boss fights, players who do not have the legendary cloak equipped are immediately mind controlled, burdening other players in their raid by not contributing to the kill. By enforcing this new restriction, Raid Finder groups will be set up for success and have a much higher chance of completing “The Waking Dream”.
    • N’Zoth the Corruptor
      • Increased the radius for Synaptic Shock to 15 yards (was 8 yards) on Raid Finder difficulty.
      • Reduced the total radius and expansion rate of Creeping Anguish on Raid Finder difficulty.
        • Developers’ note: These quality-of-life changes should increase the damage output of Raid Finder groups, specifically empowering them to bring down Psychus before it casts Manifest Madness and effectively becomes unkillable while wiping the raid.
    • Mythic Keystone Dungeon
      • Siege of Boralus
        • Sergeant Bainbridge (Horde) / Chopper Redhook (Alliance)
          • Damage inflicted when Heavy Ordnance expires now scales with keystone level. Damage inflicted when players or creatures run into Heavy Ordnance already scaled properly and remains unchanged.

Items and Rewards

  • Fixed a bug that allowed Sanguifang's Pulsating Canine to be used outside of Kul Tiras, Mechagon, Nazjatar, and Zandalar.

Mounts

  • Slightly increased the drop rate for Felblaze Infernal, Ironhoof Destroyer, and Swift Zulian Panther mounts.

March 9, 2020

Achievements

  • Wrecking Ball achievement can now be earned in the PvP Brawl "Tarren Mill vs. Southshore".

Items and Rewards

  • Fixed a bug that sometimes caused Writhing Segment’s on-use ability to trigger Rogues’ Blade Flurry.

Player versus Player

  • [With regional restarts] Ashran team size reduced to 25 (was 40).
    • While we work to improve the performance of Ashran, we are temporarily reducing the player count.

WoW Classic

  • Characters under level 30 can no longer enter Maraudon by using the Scepter of Celebras.

March 5, 2020

Dungeons and Raids

  • Ny’alotha, the Waking City
    • Il’gynoth, Corruption Reborn
      • Cursebreak damage within the smallest ring sizes reduced by 30% on Mythic difficulty.
        • Developers’ note: With the following change to Cursebreak, raid groups are far less punished for dispelling the debuff with proper timing.
    • Carapace of N'Zoth
      • Resolved an issue where Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve sometimes attempted to send players to Wrathion twice.

Items and Rewards

  • Ashjra’kamas, Shroud of Resolve
    • Draconic Empowerment (Rank 12 effect) now grants the wearer 3,648 of their primary stat when triggered (was 3,386).
    • Corrupted Items
      • Fixed an issue that prevented the Gouged Eye of N’Zoth from adding sockets to some raid weapons with a set Corrupted Effect (e.g. Eyestalk of Il’gynoth).
      • Fixed a bug that prevented Ineffable Truth (Corruption Effect) from reducing the cooldown on some abilities that have charges.
        • Demon Hunter: Demon Spikes, Fracture, Throw Glaive
        • Monk: Guard, Healing Sphere, Renewing Mist
        • Mage: Phoenix Flames
        • Warlock: Dark Soul

WoW Classic

  • The Item Restoration self-service system now retains information on disposed of Uncommon and Rare quality items for 30 days (was 7 days for Uncommon quality items, 15 days for Rare quality items). This hotfix is not retroactive and will not apply to any items for which the retention period has already expired.

March 2, 2020

Classes

  • Hunters can again tame Juggernaut pets within the Siege of Orgrimmar raid instance.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Ny’alotha, the Waking City
    • Prophet Skitra
      • [With regional restarts] Prophet Skitra now has 2 intermission phases (was 4 intermission phases) on all difficulties.
        • Prophet Skitra now enters intermission phases at 33% and 66% health (was 20%, 40%, 60% and 80% health).
      • [With regional restarts] Dark Ritual’s debuff effect now increases by 4% per stack (was 2% per stack) on all difficulties.
        • Developers’ note: Especially as raids’ overall damage output increases, many groups are spending a disproportionate amount of time dealing with Skitra’s illusions, and often skipping other mechanics entirely. This change is aimed at making the overall pace of the fight more consistent regardless of raid damage.
    • Ra-den the Despoiled
      • [With regional restarts] Void Collapse cast time increased to 4.5 seconds on Raid Finder, Normal, and Heroic difficulties.
      • [With regional restarts] Reduced the damage of Void Collapse on all difficulties.
      • [With regional restarts] Void Defilement duration decreased to 6 seconds on Mythic difficulty.
    • N’Zoth the Corruptor
      • [With regional restarts] Azeroth’s Radiance now restores 25 Sanity (was 20 Sanity).
        • Thought Harvester
          • [With regional restarts] Harvest Thoughts Shadow damage reduced by 10%.
          • [With regional restarts] Harvest Thoughts Sanity drain reduced to 300 (was 400).
            • Developers’ note: We’ve seen extensive use of player immunities to avoid the consequences of certain raid mechanics, and while we want to allow player utility to function wherever possible, we’re wary when specific class compositions feel required. The changes to both Ra-den and N’Zoth are intended to make a wider range of raid compositions feel viable on Mythic difficulty.
      • [With regional restarts] Mindgrasp can no longer be interrupted by Priests’ Cosmic Ripple (Talent).

Items and Rewards

  • The currency limit for Coalescing Visions has been removed.
    • Developers’ note: Especially since the removal of the unique cap on Vessels, we’ve seen a lot of feedback about the inventory clutter of multiple Vessels. By removing the cap on Coalescing Visions, players should now feel free to buy Vessels from Wrathion as needed, rather than stockpiling them in bags.
  • Cache of the Black Empire will award 12,500 Coalescing Visions instead of a Vessel of Horrific Visions and 2,500 Coalescing Visions.
  • Memory Cube can now only be used in non-instanced areas.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented Manifesto of Madness’ on-use effect from working in Mythic and Mythic Keystone Dungeon difficulties.
    • Corrupted Items
      • Twilight Devastation's effectiveness has been reduced in situations where it strikes more than 5 targets. It has been changed as follows:
        • Deals normal damage on up to 5 targets.
        • Deals 50% reduced damage to targets 6 through 10.
        • Shrinks in radius each time it damages a target above 5, causing it to disappear after hitting 10 targets.
    • Heart of Azeroth
      • The Formless Void’s Rank 3 (Essence) Minor Power should no longer break Rogues out of stealth.
      • Corrected an issue with Memory of Lucid Dreams (Essence) where Frost Mages using Glacial Spike and an instant cast Flurry could sometimes have their icicle buff count and visual display not match.

Player versus Player

  • Heart of Azeroth
    • Corrected an issue where Vision of Perfection (Essence) Rank 3 Minor Power’s effect was removed when entering an Arena match.

N’Zoth Assaults

  • Added a portal to exit the Pools of Power after defeating Vil'raxx in Vale of Eternal Blossoms.

Timewalking

  • [With regional restarts] Updated player health, damage, and healing scaling to compensate for Azerite Essences and Corruption.
    • Developers’ note: Timewalking is meant to be largely gear-agnostic, allowing players with different progression and even different levels to group together. We’ve generally added hidden modifiers to offset the power of special systems like Legion’s artifact weapons while still allowing them to function, but had not done so for recent Battle for Azeroth systems, causing large imbalances in power between endgame players with Corruption and Essences.

      • [With regional restarts] Rejuvenation now costs 10% base mana (was 10.5%).
      • [With regional restarts] Efflorescence now costs 17% base mana (was 21.6%).
      • [With regional restarts] Tranquility direct healing increased 11%.
        • Developers’ note: These changes should improve Restoration Druid’s raid healing output, without much impact to their already strong capabilities in dungeons and Arena.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Mythic Keystone Dungeons
    • Explosive Affix
      • Explosive Orbs again immediately put players into combat.
      • Explosive Orbs can again be tab-targeted.
        • Developers’ note: When testing the Awakened affix, we found that Explosive Orbs could sometimes prevent players from entering or exiting Ny'alotha Spires and Rifts if their party was in combat inside the instance. To solve this issue, we changed them to not place players in combat immediately. However, this had the unintended side effect of breaking player expectations around tab-targeting Explosive Orbs, so we're reverting their threat-generation behavior and trying an alternate solution.
  • Ny’alotha, the Waking City
    • Azeroth’s Radiance now properly restores Sanity to players who are under the effects of an Immunity spell on all difficulties.
    • Vexiona
      • Cultists now have their health adjusted based on raid size, up to a maximum 10% reduction for 10-player raids on Normal and Heroic difficulties.

    • Horrific Vision of Stormwind
      • Magister Umbric now casts Frozen Storm twice during the encounter (was 3 times).

      • The number of Torn Pages of “Fear and Flesh” quest items required for the rank 13-15 cloak quests has been reduced.
        • Rank 13 now requires 4 Torn Pages (down from 6).
        • Rank 14 now requires 6 Torn Pages (down from 12).
        • Rank 15 now requires 8 Torn Pages (down from 18).
        • Developers’ note: This change should make all the quests completable by most players in the week and not require players to feel the need to save as many keys week to week. Along with our other quality-of-life changes, this should help newer characters catch up with their peers.
      • [With regional restarts] Up to 4 Torn Pages of “Fear and Flesh” quest items can now drop in Horrific Visions from objectives on the rank 7-11 legendary cloak upgrade quests (max of 2).
        • Developers’ note: Players will need to clear more than two side areas in one run to get more than two pages. The rank 13-15 quests will still drop a max of 2 pages, only from Lost Area objectives.
    • Coalescing Visions
      • Coalescing Visions now drop in higher numbers from Assaults and Daily Quests.
      • [With regional restarts] Visions of N’Zoth daily quests now reward 30% more Coalescing Visions.

      • Reaping Flames (Essence) will no longer have its cooldown reduced to 5 seconds and deal additional damage when killing Twisted Appendages.

Player versus Player

  • Resolved an issue that could prevent a character from gaining progress towards earning the Season 4 seasonal mount and Vicious Saddles.

February 18, 2020

Items and Rewards

  • Fixed an issue that prevented Lady Jaina Proudmoore and N’Zoth the Corruptor from dropping mounts when defeated on Mythic difficulty.
    • Developers’ note: Last week we made a change to increase the mount rewards from defeating these bosses from 1 to 2. However, the hotfix caused an issue that prevented any mounts from dropping, so we’ve reverted it back to the previous iteration as a temporary fix (1 mount rewarded). These bosses will drop 2 mounts with restarts in each region.

Quests

  • Eligible players can again turn in “Supplies from the Rajani” or “Supplies from the Uldum Accord” for Paragon Cache rewards.

  • Ny’alotha, the Waking City
    • N’Zoth the Corruptor now drops 2 Ny’alotha Allseer mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty.
      • With these mounts becoming quite rare once Shadowlands comes out, taking 20 weeks or more for a full Mythic raid group to get the mounts felt excessive.

Horrific Visions

  • Reduced the health of enemies for groups of 2 or more that include at least 1 healer.
    • Developers’ note: We expected that groups with a healer would gain efficiency by taking more risks, but we've found that this gain is offset by healers shifting focus from damage to healing as group size increases, so we're adjusting creature health accordingly.
  • Stormwind
    • Alleria Windrunner
      • Darkened Sky now drains 40 Sanity (was 60 Sanity).
      • When the Trade District bonus objective is complete, Chains of Servitude is now cast once during the fight (was twice).

  • Corrupted Items
    • Fixed an issue which prevented items from being forged with the +12 Corruption version of Ineffable Truth (Corruption Effect).

        • Cast frequency reduced.
          • Developers’ note: This ability works well as a dispel challenge, but its damage and disruption has proven to be more punishing than we’d like.
    • Urg’roth, Breaker of Heroes
      • Spirit Breaker’s damage reduced by 20%.

Items and Rewards

    • Corrupted Items
      • Rogues’ Detection no longer builds Echoing Void.

      • Fixed a bug where canceling the Echoing Void (Corrupted Effect) buff did not immediately stop it from dealing damage.
      • Ineffable Truth (Corruption Effect) should again correctly reduce the cooldown of Fire Elemental spell and the Stormkeeper and Storm Elemental Talents for Elemental Shaman.
      • Thing from Beyond's (Corrupted Effect) damage is no longer increased by Demonology's Master Demonologist passive or Beast Mastery's Master of Beasts passive.
      • Thing from Beyond's damage is no longer increased by the corrupted player's Versatility.

Quests

  • "Aqir Instincts" and "Honing Instincts" no longer have their progress blocked by being in a raid group or when summoning or dismissing the Shadowbarb Hatchling. Kills made while in a raid group will still fail to grant experience to grow your Shadowbarb Hatchling.

      • [Live with regional resets] Void Ritual’s stat bonus per stack has been approximately doubled at each rank.
      • Grasping Tendrils is no longer dispellable by Magic dispels and will no longer appear on players’ raid frame UI; it can still be removed by abilities that remove snares.
        • Developer's Note: We originally made this effect’s snare dispellable so that players could save each other if they were afflicted with it in unfortunate Void Zone-like circumstances. However, we've received feedback that in large-group environments, Grasping Tendrils’ appearance on raid frames could sometimes cause players to overlook more critical debuffs to dispel. We're making this change so players can better see Magic effects in their raid frames as significant debuffs that should be paid attention to and react accordingly.

UI

  • Fixed an issue that caused the Onyx War Hyena to appear in the Mounts tab of the Collection journal.

February 7, 2020

  • Siege of Boralus
    • Adjusted the Spire of Ny’alotha’s position when the Awakened affix is active on Mythic Keystone difficulty.
      • Developers’ note: This Spire was near a group of powerful enemies for Alliance players, but not for Horde players. It should now be in a more comparable location for both factions.

      • Rift Strike damage reduced by 37.5% and is cast less frequently.

Creatures and NPCs

Horrific Visions

  • Further reduced the health of enemies in Horrific Visions for players who enter the instance as a solo healer or tank specialization; healers will face enemies with 42% less health and tanks will fight enemies with 25% reduced health.
    • Developers’ note: We'd like players to be able to upgrade their legendary cloak without feeling like they have to change specialization. The difficulty of Horrific Visions adjusts dynamically based on party composition, but they're still a bit rough for solo healers and tanks, so we're making some tweaks to help those players out.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented Vision Hunters’ buff text from displaying the proper values.

Items and Rewards

        • Developers’ note: This change is meant to bring the encounter in line with the rest of the instance on Heroic difficulty.
    • N’Zoth the Corruptor
      • The Paranoia debuff can no longer be removed through immunity effects (e.g. Paladins’ Divine Shield) on all difficulties; damage and loss of sanity from Paranoia can still be temporarily avoided by using immunities.
      • A few of Exposed Synapses in N'Zoth's Mind have been moved a small distance.
        • Developers’ note: This quality-of-life change should help melee characters better reach Exposed Synapses during the encounter.

  • Corrupted Items
    • Flash of Insight (Corruption Effect) now correctly scales with the total Intellect value of the character.
    • Echoing Void damage reduced by 20%
      • Developer's Note: Echoing Void's design makes its damage fairly reliable and high in most combat situations. As it's less situational than some other Corruption effects, we feel it is doing too much damage per Corruption by comparison.
  • Sk’shuul Vaz
    • This weapon’s Obsidian Destruction (Corruption Effect) now divides its damage among targets struck and deals additional damage for each target struck, up to maximum damage dealt at 6 targets.
    • Damage against a single target has been increased to 700% of armor (was 175% of armor).
  • Fixed an issue which could cause Cache of Ny'alothan Treasures to display a tooltip indicating that it was Corrupted, even if it was not going to drop a Corrupted item. (The chance of your Cache item being corrupted has not changed.)
  • Fixed an issue which allowed Obsidian Destruction and Searing Flames to ignore Line of Sight on some targets.
  • Resolved an issue that caused crowd control that breaks on damage (Mages’ Polymorph) to be removed by Eye of Corruption damage.

Lesser Visions

  • Fixed a bug where the small chests found in the Lesser Visions weren't rewarding their Corrupted Mementos.

Player versus Player

  • Resolved an issue that prevented PvP Talent weapon disarm effects (e.g. Rogues’ Dismantle) from correctly having diminishing returns on their duration when cast against players that were recently affected by other disarm effects.
  • Resolved an issue that prevented characters from earning the Dreadflame illusion after earning the Duelist: Battle for Azeroth Season 4 achievement.

World Quests

  • “Vuk'laz the Earthbreaker” should now properly get pushed to Horde players.

January 27, 2020

Items and Rewards

  • Corrupted Items
    • Damage dealt by Infinite Stars, Twisted Appendages, and Gushing Wound (Corrupted Effects) is now based on the item level of a Corrupted item, rather than scaling dynamically with Attack Power and Spell Power.
      • Developers’ note: Previously the damage dealt by these powers was modified by Attack Power and Spell Power, which meant that certain specialization abilities or random bonuses could cause drastic swings in their effectiveness. Infinite Stars in particular was too strong against single targets as a result of this and other factors. This change also adjusts Infinite Stars base damage accordingly, as the scaling method was one of the primary factors behind some of the extreme outliers we saw in our logs and from player feedback. Our goal with this change and other adjustments to Corruption powers is to improve parity in the effectiveness per point of Corruption of the different bonuses available on Visions of N’Zoth items.
