Hotfixes -- Updated November 20

Remaining in chromie time at 50 to have uncontested rare chances/hyperspawn farming is likely why they clamped down on it.

Want to stay in chromie time lock your exp at 49.

Still no news on connecting more low pop realms huh? Do we have to wait for that “Services Sale” to end?

There’s a bug in the WoD level scaling for followers. The follower levels are scaled correctly everywhere except for the Mission Completion screen. On that screen they are still showing followers in the 90’s (90-99) level range.

It appears to be just cosmetic, but it should still probably be fixed eventually to avoid confusion.

We’ve been asking for a year. It’s over dude. I wish they remained at 500 echoes even after the 5x currency inflation just to let people move beyond worrying about getting a complete essence library to then focus on corruption. But corruptions are gone and echoes only serve one unique purpose now: essences.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

Here are the class changes coming with this week’s restart.

Can we get some numerical values for this? Please? Thank you for listening.

Doesn’t it seem kind of silly to be adjusting some of these spec’s damage based off where the game is currently vs where it’s going to be in a couple of weeks? I sure haven’t seen anything that suggests BM Hunter damage is deserving of a 5% nerf in Shadowlands for example, despite what they may be doing right now in BFA/Azerite/Neck that will be going away very soon…

I am sure their “internal” testing has shown some great data. “sarcasm”

These are for Prepatch only, or is this something that will be going forward into Shadowlands launch as well?

Yuck.

I’ve just finished leveling up a beast master hunter and I’m working on another one. Honestly, they felt just right - you should have brought all other classes up to this level, rather than implementing all these nerfs.

All that threat generating and I bet our warlock tank pets still can’t tank for beans.

Forgot to buff Havoc by 20% across the board

You guys forgot to buff Rogue’s while you’re out here being dumb

Can you guys please stop forcing Sweeping Strikes on us? It’s just not a fun move.

I would rather have the Fury Whirlwind or anything else. Now I can’t even talent it away!

Protection Paladin passive Armor bonus reduced to 10% (was 20%). Hmm why nerf Prot pally’s armor? Current patches already nerfed the armor from shield of the righteous, now nerf again the passive armor? Prot pally is not particularly strong in dealing with physical damage, and now making a shield tank with less armor than other tanks? So as a Prot Pally, my shield is basically a frisbee and my plate armor is made of paper.

Havoc DH was the king of BFA, it’s someone else’s turn. They won’t get buffed.
