Hotfixes


July 16, 2024

Season of Discovery

  • Demon Fall Canyon
    • Possibly due to “Demonic Deceptions”, the Owlbeasts of Winterspring have attended a guided meditation retreat, expanding their pineal glands.
    • Zilbagob will now always be accessible when The Destructor's Wraith and Grimroot have been defeated.
  • Items
    • A new item -- Hand of Injustice -- is now available from Pix Xizzix, the Undermine Real vendor.
    • Added new shield enchant that grants 30 spell power and 55 healing power – Law of Nature. Available to learn for Enchanters. The pattern is available from Timbermaw Hold at Revered.
    • Added a temporary shield enchantment that grants 24 spell power, much like wizard oil -- Conductive Shield Coating. Available to learn for Enchanters. The pattern is available from Thorium Brotherhood at Honored.
    • Drinkable Stratholme Holy Water from Argent Dawn reputation will now recover 6618 mana over 30 seconds and will also grant 10 per Holy Water turned-in.
    • The Pattern: Embroidered Belt of the Archmage can now correctly be consumed by Tailors.
    • The Leather-Reinforced Runecloth Bag's materials have changed from requiring a Runecloth Bag to requiring the materials for the Runecloth Bag craft itself.
  • Quests
    • The quests “More Greater Moonstones” and “More Moondragon Scales” now have the correct item requirements to complete.
    • Players who were unable to fully access Mokvar and Deliana's Tier 0.5 exchange vendor options should now have full access if they have completed the corresponding quests:
      • “An Earnest Proposition” - Bracer
      • “Just Compensation” - Belt, Gloves
      • “Anthion's Parting Words” - Boots, Legs, Shoulders
      • “Saving the Best for Last” - Helm, Chest
      • A Nearby Kor'kron Elite and Ironforge Guard will also provide access to these vendor lists if Mokvar or Deliana are occupied.
  • Druid
    • Nourish will now benefit from, and consume Omen of Clarity's Clearcasting effect.
      • Developers’ notes: Unlike in Cataclysm, Nourish in SoD has more upsides to it than just the mana cost - like the casting speed. So it makes sense for it to benefit from Clearcasting and to consume it as well.
  • Hunter
    • If you have have Lone Wolf engraved on your gear, spirit healers in battlegrounds will no longer resurrect your pet alongside you.
  • Mage
    • Presence of Mind now causes Chronostatic Preservation to instantly cast the Healing Portion of the spell, even if you did not have the buff active.
    • Presence of Mind is not consumed if Chronostatic Preservation's buff was already present and a release of the heal is used. This means you can Chronostatic Preservation pre-cast, use PoM, and release two Chronostatic Preservation casts back-to-back.
    • Ice Armor and Frost Armor will no longer proc Brain Freeze.
    • Brain Freeze and Hot Streak will no longer overwrite each other and can now both exist on a character at the same time.
    • Your Arcane Missiles will correctly have their cost reduced when both Missile Barrage and Brain Freeze are active at the same time.
    • If Hot Streak is gained while already casting Pyroblast, it will no longer be consumed. This can result in two free Pyroblasts back-to-back.
    • Frozen Orb will no longer despawn early if cast near a wall.
    • Arcane Barrage will now correctly interact with the Shatter talent when your target is Frozen or you have Fingers of Frost active.
    • Frozen Orb will now benefit from the Shatter talent if the target is Frozen.
      • Developers’ notes: Because Fingers of Frost is applied through Frozen Orb and would be consumed quickly by it, Frozen Orb does not consume or benefit from Fingers of Frost.
  • Paladin
    • Inspiration Exemplar will no longer cause the player to stand up every tick.
  • Priest
    • Binding Heal will now correctly consume Surge of Light.
    • Void Zone will no longer return a 'no path available’ error.
  • Shaman
    • Storm, Earth, and Fire's Earthbind Totem effect will now correctly hit every target instead of just one.
    • Shamans will no longer gain charges of Lightning Shield from Rolling Thunder when the rune is not equipped.
  • Warlock
    • Mark of Chaos will no longer fall off after 1 minute when Curse of Recklessness or Curse of Weakness is used.
    • Rune of Infernal Armor now drops for players even if they haven't previously completed discovery for Rune of Shadowflames.
  • Warrior
    • “Rift Away” can now be obtained at level 55.
    • Khonsu's fall catcher mechanism for Thunder Stomped players should be slightly better at rescuing them.

    • The spawn rates of creatures for Blackrock Eruptions have been increased.
    • The Flamestone Cluster quest item required for the quest "Oh, Shiny!" has been added to other dark iron creatures in Searing Gorge as well. This is not reflected in the quest text.
    • The number of quest creatures required for some Blackrock Eruption quests has been reduced.
  • Druid
    • Improved Barkskin no longer erroneously requires Tree Form.

    • Hunters can now engrave both the Rune of Nature Specialization and the Rune of Fire Specialization.
    • Wyvern Strike will no longer return an ‘immune’ message against targets that are immune to its Bleed effect. It will now deal its direct damage, but not apply the Bleed.

  • Warlock
    • The number of charges on Shadowflame's application of Shadow Vulnerability has been increased to 30 total charges (was 10).
    • Explorer Imps should now have an easier time traveling to the Legion prison-world Niskara.

WoW Classic Era and Hardcore

July 10, 2024

Cataclysm Classic

  • Tabard of Flame item will no longer destroy itself on login. The transmog is available via the appearances tab in collections, and the item itself is available via purchase from Landro Longshot in Booty Bay.
  • Fixed multiple spells so that they now log properly and can be detected by addon authors and third-party web sites.
  • Titan Rune Dungeons have been updated to allow for a single player to activate any of the three difficulties.

Season of Discovery

  • The 6-hour wait between applications of Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer and Warchief's Blessing has been reduced to 1 minute.
  • Fixed an issue with the Rolling Thunder rune where it only worked if you also had the Shield Mastery rune equipped. That requirement was accidental and is now removed.

  • All non-Elite, non-Boss enemies in Nightmare Incursions now have health and damage values the same as a standard creature of their level. Previously, most had 50% more damage and health.

  • Pattern: Leather-Reinforced Runecloth Bag (18 slots) is now available for Undermine Real.
  • Bottomless Bag and Onyxia Hide Backpack now have 20 slots.

WoW Classic Era and Hardcore

  • Fixed multiple bugs causing quests and abilities from Season of Discovery to be unintentionally present in Classic Era.
  • The 6-hour wait between applications of Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer and Warchief's Blessing has been reduced to 1 minute.

July 3, 2024

Achievements

  • What's Down There? now requires 1 Massive Lunker (was 2).
  • That's not a Fish... now requires 5 Massive Lunkers (was 10).
  • We're Going to Need a Bigger Harpoon now requires 10 Massive Lunkers (was 25).

Items

  • Ominous Conch cooldown lowered to 1 minute (was 5 minutes).
  • Increased the drop rate of Ominous Conch found in Tuskarr Tackle Boxes.
  • Ominous Conch now has a maximum stack size of 20.
    • Developers’ notes: Ominous Conch used to have a maximum stack size of 20 in earlier patches, and that was removed. Since we’re putting the max back on it, we think it’s best to also reduce the associated achievement requirements and cooldown.

WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria

  • Fixed several issues with the achievement Elusive Foes: Timeless Isles.

Cataclysm Classic

  • Fixed an issue preventing the completion of the Bounce
  • Cataclysm raid premade group activities are now available in Group Finder.

June 21, 2024

WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria

  • Fixed an issue causing Echo of Light from Holy Priest to scale incorrectly when there's a level disparity.

Cataclysm Classic

  • Shaman Fire Elementals will now prefer targets that have their master's Flameshock active on them, and will switch to those targets over targets without their master's Flameshock. This check occurs only once every several seconds, so may take a little time to occur.
  • Temporarily removed the Elemental Shaman (2) Set Bonus on the Burning Crusade Tier 4 set.
    • Developer's note: The 2 Piece Elemental Shaman Tier 4 bonus has a bug that existed in original Cataclysm, but was found later on in Warlords of Draenor. If this bonus were to remain in its bugged state, it would cause Elemental Shamans to wear 2 Pieces of The Burning Crusade tier for the entire expansion and we kind of like it when people have to progress their gear. Because the real fix we wish to do requires server restarts, we are removing the 2-set bonus off of the set for the weekend, and then placing it back after server restarts in its fixed state.

June 18, 2024

Dungeons and Raids

  • Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr
    • Emberon
      • Fixed an issue where Purging Flames precast visual effect was not matching the spawn location of the beam.

  • Improved combat logging of certain effects.
  • Death Knight
    • Death Coil will no longer critically heal for 300% of the normal value, instead of the intended 200%.

    • Greater Spool of Eternal Thread (180 → 540)
  • Emperor Shaohao reputation increased by 700%.

Cataclysm Classic

  • Druid
    • Balance
      • Developer’s note: We noticed that Balance druid gameplay was seeing a trend towards sitting in Solar and trying not to leave it, especially in Multi-DoT situations. Not engaging with a decent chunk of your core rotation to stay in Solar Eclipse is not a playstyle that we nor the original developers had intended, so we released a change last week that was aimed at preventing mastery snapshotting pre-pull by resetting Eclipse when engaging a boss.
        We understand this could be a damage reduction in many scenarios and to address this, Insect Swarm now deals Spellstorm (Arcane/Nature) damage so it can now benefit from Lunar Eclipse. This means that when you end up in Lunar Eclipse, you will still be buffing your two core DoTs. We estimate this change to be about a 15% damage increase to Insect Swarm, which is typically a Balance Druid’s second most damaging ability on non-single target encounters. There may still be situations where staying in Solar Eclipse is ideal, and that’s totally fine, we just don’t think it’s healthy for that to be every situation and on every pull.
      • Starting a boss encounter resets Eclipse energy to 0.
      • Insect Swarm is now considered both an Arcane and a Nature spell, causing it to benefit from both Eclipses. The tooltip will be updated in a future update.

June 11, 2024

Player versus Player

  • Paladin
    • Fixed an issue that caused Blessing of Sacrifice to not break Psychic Scream.

WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria

Cataclysm Classic

  • Valor Points will now behave like Conquest and the current weekly cap will be replaced with a rolling seasonal cap.
    • Developer’s note: If you've missed any Valor Points in previous weeks since Cataclysm Classic launched, you'll now be able to catch up from those weeks.
  • There is no longer a cap to the number of times you may earn Valor Points from Random Dungeon Finder each week, up to your normal Valor Points cap.
  • The Hood of Malefic wing affect should work once again.
  • Fixed an issue where the Wrack spell during the Sinestra fight could cause your game to freeze and crash.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the Staff of Disintegration from working to help you in the Tempest Keep Kael’Thas encounter.

  • Druid
    • Balance
      • Developers’ notes: We recently removed the PvP nerf for Frenzied Regeneration primarily to help Feral Druids, but Balance Druids got a windfall and became a little too powerful with this change. We’re pulling back on this buff specifically for Balance Druid only, so that their survivability is more in line with everyone else.
      • Frenzied Regeneration heals for 5% health every sec (was 8%) for Balance Druid in PvP combat.

    • Clearcasting will no longer be consumed by Nourish.
      • Developers’ notes: This mirrors a change that was originally made in patch 4.0.3a. Nourish is a low cost heal and is intended to be a filler spell. It simply doesn’t feel good to be casting Nourish and have Clearcasting go off, and then spend it on the incoming Nourish.

  • Fixed a bug that unintentionally added additional enemy health for highly geared players against Heroic raid bosses.
    • Developers’ notes: In combination with previous recent hotfixes, this should result in health and damage versus Heroic raid bosses being as intended for players of higher and lower item levels, so that players of mixed item levels can have a better experience playing together. Overall, players with higher item levels should do greater damage and have greater survivability.

Cataclysm Classic

  • When Nitro Boosts malfunction in a raid encounter, they will now also grant increased movement speed as well as damage their user.
  • The Greater Inscription shoulder enchants available at exalted with Therazane are now Bind-to-Account.

  • Rogue
    • Blind can no longer trigger poisons applied to the Rogue's ranged weapon.
  • Warlock
    • Fixed an issue where some Warlocks retained the benefit of the Nemesis talent from Wratch of the Lich King Classic, which no longer exists in Cataclysm Classic.

        • Developers’ notes: For example, if you are at 50% health and receive damage for 40% of your health, your damage taken will be 20% + 20% * (1-0.8), or 24%, and you will have 26% health remaining when Battle-Scarred Veteran activates.

Player versus Player

  • Evoker
    • Resolved an issue causing the dispel effect from Scouring Flames to fail on targets near the edge of Fire Breath.

Quests

  • The questgivers for Renown quests in Valdrakken now again offer the “Continued Waygate Exploration” quests.

  • Adjusted and tuned several gem effects:
    • Arcanist's Edge absorb amount (that can be converted into damage) has been doubled.
    • Fervor health amounts (that can be converted into damage) has been doubled.
    • Righteous Frenzy damage dealt to targets increased to 2% per second (was 1%).
      • Developers’ notes: This should give healers a bit more to do while optimizing their group's damage, and it should make some gem combinations even more interesting.
    • Searing Light collected healing points increased to 10% (was 7%).
    • Slay cannot critically strike.
      • Developers’ notes: Slay still hits for the player's entire health amount, and will remain an incredibly powerful option.

      • Developers’ notes: Ward of Salvation will remain a powerful way for healers to deliver some additional damage, but should not trivialize the most difficult raid encounters.

Cataclysm Classic

May 28, 2024

Player versus Player

  • Priest

    • Thoughtsteal no longer causes the casting Priest to learn a spell they already know (example: a Shadow Priest stealing Vampiric Touch from another Shadow Priest). The target of the Thoughtsteal still loses access to the stolen ability.

  • Hunter

May 21, 2024

WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria

  • We have made the following changes to improve Thread of Time gain for the Cloak of Infinite Potential. Our goal with these additional items is to give players access to more Threads of Time from daily repeatable sources. These should serve as readily attainable power-ups from a wide variety of content, so players can enjoy the breadth of Pandaria while also gaining additional power. There are four new items that grant players escalating amounts of power for the Cloak of Infinite Potential:
    • Minor Spool of Eternal Thread
    • Lesser Spool of Eternal Thread
    • Spool of Eternal Thread
    • Greater Spool of Eternal Thread
  • Players will be able to find these new items from a variety of solo and group sources, ensuring all players have accessible ways to improve their cloak:
    • Infinite Bazaar Repeatable Dailies
    • First-Time Daily Scenario, Dungeon, and each LFR queue
    • World Bosses
    • Remix Achievements
      • Each of these achievements are available for additional characters to complete as well for bonus Bronze - and now bonus Spools of Eternal Thread.

    • The health and damage of creatures on the Timeless Isle, Isle of Giants, and Isle of Thunder has been reduced.
    • Several spell gems (that were not scaling up or down correctly based on player level) have been adjusted so that they provide a more-appropriate scaling effect. This includes Cold Front, Windweaver, Vampiric Aura, and Lightning Rod.
    • Spell gems with shielding effects should no longer cause threat.
    • Fixed a bug with Righteous Frenzy not canceling upon the end of combat.
    • Timerunner’s Vial mana regen significantly increased.

  • Fixed a bug causing Gulp Frogs to unintentionally drop Lesser Charms of Good Fortune.

  • Gear drop-rates have been improved from world rares, rare elites, and quests. This will help players who have had their item levels fall behind as leveling speed increases, especially at higher levels when cloak bonus experience is powered up.
    • Developers’ notes: This will also increase player Bronze and appearance acquisition by increasing the number of items to place into the Unraveling Sands for additional Bronze.
  • The first-time bonus for queueing each LFR wing will grant a Thread of Experience in addition to the existing Lesser Bronze Cache.
    • Developers’ notes: This should improve LFR as a viable choice for leveling main characters and alts, without players feeling like they need to grind the same LFR wing repeatedly.
  • We have added bonus experience to each boss in normal dungeons and scenarios so they are a viable alternative to questing. Bonus experience has also been adding to the last boss of Heroic Scenarios. Heroic dungeon bosses will continue to drop bonus experience.
  • We’ve increased the number of prismatic gems dropped from bosses in normal and heroic scenarios and dungeons.
    • Developers’ notes: The increased stamina offered by Legendary Prismatic gems boosts player survivability considerably.
  • We have increased the Bronze granted from all qualities of Bronze Caches by 25%.
    • Developers’ notes: These caches are available from a wide variety of sources, both solo and group. This includes the Minor Bronze Cache, Lesser Bronze Cache, Bronze Cache, and Greater Bronze Cache.
  • Fixed an issue where Sha-Skin Vestment was marked as Cosmetic instead of Cloth armor.

  • Shaman
    • Fixed an issue with Healing Stream Totem where it was not benefitting from the Shaman Restoration Mastery ability Deep Healing.
  • Warlock
