wow gold news 217 webp

Here you'll find a list of hotfixes that address various issues related to World of Warcraft: Dragonflight, Wrath of the Lich King Classic, Burning Crusade Classic, Season of Discovery, 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



January 5, 2024


Dungeons and Raids



Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope


Fyrakk


Developers’ note: Fyrakk poses unique problems for smaller groups in Flexible Raid difficulties. The following changes are intended to narrow the gap in difficulty among group sizes.


Aflame now targets fewer players.


Screaming Soul health reduced for smaller group sizes.


Spirit of the Kaldorei health reduced for smaller group sizes.


Blaze damage reduced for smaller group sizes.


Corrupt absorb value reduced for smaller group sizes.







Season of Discovery



Crafted Void-Touched Armor on-use effects are now exclusive with each other and share a cooldown.




January 4, 2024


Dungeons and Raids



Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope


Fixed an issue that could sometimes cause a stuck black screen upon entering Fyrakk's chamber.





Season of Discovery



Boon of Blackfathom no longer applies to pets.


Developer’s Note: We are essentially removing the ability for pets to get Boon of Blackfathom for now. Now that pets scale with stats, allowing them to get certain world buffs would effectively let them "double dip" on these effects and gain far more damage than intended. We'll continue to review this as we move through the content phases and make adjustments to how world buffs interact with pets as needed.






January 2, 2024


Items



Fixed an issue that was causing Ms. Xiulan's Blackmarket goods to not be available in some regions.

Season of Discovery



Druid


Starsurge rune ability damage increased 182%.


Starsurge cooldown reduced to 6 seconds (was 10 seconds).


Starsurge mana cost reduced to 1% of base mana (was 3% of base mana).




Hunter


Flanking Strike now gains the benefit of weapon enhancements like sharpening stones, is now on global cooldown, and is now properly treated as a melee attack, letting it benefit from attack power and combat modifiers to dodge, parry, block, crit, hit, etc.


Flanking Strike is now prevented by Pacify.


Flanking Strike now requires a weapon equipped.


Flanking Strike pet damage is now properly treated as a melee attack, with same benefits as listed above for the hunter’s damage.


All damaging Hunter pet abilities now gain damage from Attack Power based on their Focus costs. Hunter pets no longer gain any spell damage.


Developers’ notes: Pets that cast spells such as scorpid poison or Lightning Breath were scaling too well and pets using physical abilities were scaling too little. We’ve now normalized the amount of attack power gained, to scale with the focus cost of individual pet abilities. This means that abilities with a higher focus cost, that are cast less often, will receive more benefit from attack power per attack than abilities with a lower focus cost that can generally be used more often. Overall this should level out the damage and reduce situations where some abilities were scaling too much or too little with hunter attack power.




Scorpid poison now distributes the additional damage it gains from attack power evenly over each stack of Scorpid Poison on the target.


Developers’ notes: Previously, Scorpid poison received most of its benefit from the Hunter’s attack power in the very first stack. Now the additional damage gained from the controlling hunter will not be gained until the full 5 stacks of poison are on the target. This increases the ramp time a bit and makes it less immediately deadly in PvP.




Pets now gain 30% of the hunter’s armor (was 45%) and 20% of the hunter’s stamina (was 45%).


Developers’ notes: Hunter pets were gaining far too much durability from hunter stats, to the point where some pets could get more than double the health and armor of a well-geared level 25 player. We still want dedicated hunters to have the ability to tank certain dungeon and raid encounters, but pets shouldn’t be so effective that they become the objectively correct choice.




Aspect of the Lion has been redesigned and will now function as an Aura.


Developers’ notes: This means that it is possible to have Aspect of the Lion up in addition to another aspect, such as Aspect of the Hawk. As an offset to the lower amount of damage that some hunter pets will deal, and to make talents such as Improved Aspect of the Hawk more attractive to Hunters using Aspect of the Lion, we’re shifting Aspect of the Lion into an aura rather than an aspect. This change will go into effect with scheduled weekly maintenance tomorrow, but the tooltip will not yet change. In a later hotfix, we’ll rename relocalize Aspect of the Lion to “Heart of the Lion” and update the tooltip.






Priest


Priest Homunculi damage increased by 100%.


Void Plague damage increased by 200%.


Twisted Faith now increases damage done by Mind Blast and Mind Flay by 50% (was 20%) on targets afflicted with Shadow Word: Pain.




Rogue


Saber Slash, Shiv, and Main Gauche will now properly consume Remorseless Attacks.


Saber Slash’s tooltip fixed; damage not reduced.


Saber Slash damage is now properly considered a Bleed and benefits from the Mangle debuff. Note: Bleed-immune creatures will no longer be affected by it.




Shaman


Lava Lash damage increased to 150% weapon damage (was 100% weapon damage).


Lava Lash mana cost reduced to 1% of base mana (was 4%).


Overload now has a 50% chance to trigger (was 33%).


Dual Wield Specialization now grants 10% increased chance to hit while dual-wielding.




Boon of Blackfathom world buff adjusted. It now provides 3% spell hit and 25 spell power buff addition to the other physical damage and movement speed effects (was spell crit).


Developers’ notes: Spellcasters in general are struggling a bit in BFD, mostly due to poor scaling without spellpower and a higher requirement of spell hit to reliably hit creatures 2 levels above the caster. Keep those Chronoboons handy and don’t stand in the fire and lose your buff!




Blackfathom Deeps


Elemental Resistances lowered in Blackfathom Deeps to levels more appropriate for a level 25 Raid.


Gelihast Shadow Resist lowered to 25 (was 75).


Lorgus Jett Nature Resist lowered to 25 (was 75).


Twilight Lord Kelris Shadow and Arcane Resist lowered to 25 (was 75).


Phantasmal Priestess all Resist lowered to 0 (was 75), so it’s no longer bad news if double casters are sent down to the dream in Phase 1.




Invading Nightmare Shadow and Fire Resist lowered to 25 (was 75).


Void Elementals Shadow Resist lowered lowered to 25 (was 75).


Corrosive Droplets Nature Resist lowered to 25 (was 75), and Frost Resist lowered to 0 (was 25).

Unpulled rare elites in Forbidden Reach and Zaralek Caverns should now despawn after 15 minutes, unless players are in their immediate vicinity.



Dungeons and Raids



Developers’ notes: Through the first week of Season 3 Mythic dungeons, data and feedback suggest that Murozond’s Rise, Throne of the Tides, and Atal’Dazar are outliers in terms of difficulty. While Murozond’s Rise and Throne of the Tides are too difficult, Atal’Dazar is proving too easy and may affect player progression through the content in a negative way. Our adjustments aim to better align overall balance across the Mythic dungeon pool for Season 3.

Amirdrassil, the Dream’s Hope


Fyrakk


Developers’ notes: Both player feedback and data have indicated that Heroic Fyrakk doesn't pose as much of a challenge as we'd intended. We'd like Fyrakk to be a satisfying ending to Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope for the vast majority of players who have yet to encounter him, so we're making a few adjustments to the overall difficulty of the encounter.


Burning Scales damage increased by 40%.


There is now an additional occurrence of Blaze during Stage Three.

Evoker


Augmentation


Ebon Might now properly benefits from the 4-piece class set bonus from Aberrus as well as Close as Clutchmates.






Hunter


Hunter pet attacks now scale with weapon attack power.


Kill Command, Bite, Claw, Smack, Flanking Strike, Froststorm Breath, and Burrow Attack damage reduced by 32.5%.


Developers’ notes: In a recent hotfix aimed at correcting an issue with Augmentation Evokers and their damage logging, we adjusted how Hunter pet damage is calculated. A side effect of this was that Hunter pet attacks started scaling with weapon attack power, increasing the damage of a Hunter pet's special attacks by about 32.5% at 450 item level. This is actually something we would like to retain, as it means that Hunter pet damage will now benefit from weapon upgrades.




Mend Pet and Revive Pet are now separate pet utility buttons and are no longer automatically swapped back and forth based on your pet's state. This is a temporary change to resolve some issues with interactions between Call of the Wild, Mend Pet, and Revive Pet. Mend Pet can be found in the "Pet Utility" flyout menu in the main Hunter spellbook.

Evoker


Augmentation


Developers’ notes: The amount of utility that Augmentation Evoker brings on top of its high damage has proven to be too powerful despite recent changes. Therefore we are further reducing their damage contributions to the group in order to balance them against other specializations.

Developers’ notes: Discipline healing throughput (particularly in raids) is slightly higher than we would like, given their damage and utility contributions to the group. To balance them, we’re reducing some talents that are giving a lot of power for only 1 talent point. The goal is to improve talent balance while also bringing them in line with other healers.

Inescapable Torment damage reduced by approximately 19%.
