WoW Hotfixes - Updated December 16

This is still happening, today, 12/7/22.

The entire western part of the map was lagged today while the feast activity was going on. I was in Iskaara and the Gorloc area trying to quet during the feat activity.

I received the achievement for the feast today so you can look at my profile to see when it occurred.

Can we half or quarter the cooldown on the alchemy experimentation fails? 9 times out of 10 they do fail.

Azure Span still gets laggy during the soup-making event, and I was in the middle of the map farming herbs while it was going on.

Hmmm they forgot about thrash not working in arena again. I’m sure they will get it next week before season 1 starts.

The lag in Azure Span is now actually worse than it was before. Also it appears that people dropping the various punching bag toys causes everything to glitch and people not to get assignments from Big Kinook.

Hey all! Here are today’s hotfixes.

they fixed shaman. we continue on with our business

Wanna fix the Divine Kiss of Ohn’ahra mount quest? Even if players have all the things required, including the rank 3 incense, still can’t talk to the bird or do anything. Oh and please at least acknowledge how bugged Evokers empowered spells are - they still grey out action bars regularly (maybe when used with dragonrage?), eternity surge still sometimes doesn’t cast at all as well. Would be pretty slick if you guys would at least add these problems with your FLAGSHIP class to a public list of known issues. Just sayin.

So, they made den mother to affect raid and party members, but didn’t bother nerfing/adjusting the most broken spec …a tank…in the game in PvP.

Great move. Lets go into season 1. With a Tank doing more damage than any dps in the game, equal healing to the top healer of the meta, while having strong defensive survivability with a massive health pool.

Ooops you for got a some what important issue. Thrash for feral Druid is still not working in arena.

Can you fix grappling hook breaking rogues out of stealth with the subterfuge talent? Please and thank you.

Fix the Azure Span lag please.

It’s been like this far too long. Fix your damn game.


First time craft experience nerf makes me really sad. It felt so good to level through professions and it doesn’t make sense gameplay wise to get experience for first crafts up until some random arbitrary point and then no more…

Is it really that bad to get a bit of extra experience while leveling professions? We can only realistically do the first craft so many times anyway before running out of new ones to do around level 40-60.

rest shaman need more healing buff 5% is not good and pvp arena

When will we be able to actually use tiered medallion settings to add gem slots to neck pieces?

  • The Waking Shores
    • The amount of Impressive Dragon Skulls required to complete Tarjin’s Tale reduced to 5 (was 25).

Reasons behind this change? Only been 1 week, and that quest was a good grind. Made you actually have to go do something. Also, as a skinner good farming…

Just would like to know what the reasoning is for such a big change drop from 25 to 5?

Hey all! Here are today’s hotfixes.

December 8, 2022


  • Fixed the timer for completing Three Minutes or It’s Free.


  • Evoker
    • Ancient Flame now also reduces the global cooldown of Living Flame by 40%.
      • Developers’ note: We added this GCD reduction to the Ancient Flame talent so Living Flame can be smoothly cast in quick succession.
    • Devastation
      • Energizing Flame now restores 70% of Living Flame’s mana cost when striking an enemy (was 50%).
      • Living Flame now heals for 30% more and costs 20% of total mana (was 10% total mana).
        • Developers’ note: We want Living Flame to feel more impactful for Devastation Evokers when using it to heal themselves or an ally, but we also want to make sure it can’t be used indefinitely. The Evoker’s mana bar is intended to be a rate limiter on healing, similar to how Healing Surge is for Elemental Shamans for example.
  • Hunter
    • Beast Mastery
      • Fixed an issue where Call of the Wild was making Mend Pet temporarily unusable each time a pet was summoned from Call of the Wild.
  • Warlock
    • Fixed an issue where Profane Bargain was providing too high of shared damage.

Creatures and NPCs

  • Maldraxxus Abominations should now correctly help players above level 60 when adventuring in the Shadowlands.
  • Fixed an issue where Horace “Scalding” Stern would clutter players’ combat logs with his actions.
  • Players can no longer sit on the stools that Miya and her mother Plifa are sleeping on in the Gelikyr Inn. This change will allow them to get the quality of sleep they deserve.


  • Whirling Surge cooldown now resets at the start of each dragon race.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Brakenhide Hollow
    • Bracken Warsourge’s Hideous Cackle chamges:
      • Reduced the duration to 4 seconds (was 7)
      • Increased the cast time to 3.5 seconds (was 2.5)
      • Added stronger visuals to the precast to draw more attention to the cast time so players can more readily interrupt it.

Items and Rewards

  • Fixed an issue where some Tuskarr Fishing Net timers were not decreasing while offline.
  • Fixed an issue where Darkmoon Deck: Watcher was giving a lower Versatility value than expected when triggering the shield.
  • Drakonid Spear is now only useable in the Dragon Isles outdoor content.


  • Fixed issues with multiple incorrect recipe bindings:

    • Technique: Renewed Proto-Drake: Predator Pattern is no longer Bind on Pickup.
    • Schematic: Tinker: Breath of Neltharion is no longer Bind on Pickup.
    • Recipe: Celebratory Cake is now Bind on Pickup.
      • Developers’ Note: Our philosophy for Dragon Isles recipe acquisition is simple - we intend for as many recipes to be tradeable as possible. The main exceptions to this rule are for recipes that come from quest rewards and from renown. There should always be a moment of excitement when you find a recipe, either because it can be sold for a pretty penny or read for your own benefit. We will continue to keep an eye out for and correct recipes that do not align with these goals.
  • Cooking

    • Cooking Seamoth Surprise now correctly has a chance to teach the Great Cerulean Sea recipe (was Thousandbone Tongueslicer).
  • Inscription

    • Technique: Weathered Explorer’s Stave now requires Dragon Isles Inscription 50 to match all other high-end recipes (was 75).


  • Dragonflight Campaign
    • Fixed an issue preventing “Open Orientation” from being available to some alts.
  • Ohn’ahran Plains
    • “Counting Argali” and “Bakar Dream of Lost Argali” should now be significantly easier to complete.
    • Fixed an issue where the Foal’s Training Ability would show when not on the world quest “Low Hanging Fruit.”
  • Thaldraszus
    • Fixed an issue where the beam in use during the “The Once and Future Team” wasn’t cancelling itself if the quest was abandoned.
    • Fixed an issue on “The Once and Future Team” where Timewalker Wardens would sometimes not join the fight against the Colossal Causality.
    • Fixed an issue where Andantenormu was forgetting to rescue Worgen and Zandalari Trolls during “Feels like the First Time.”
    • Added a waypoint for “Catching Up to Chromie.”
    • Adjusted the tooltip for the “Temporal Destabilizing Beam” to show the correct range.
    • World Quests
      • Fixed the “Hydro Tuskarr” so the net is not usable while swimming underwater.
  • The Waking Shores
    • Fixed an issue where Cygenoth could fail to transform if he was stunned during the encounter in “The Shadow of His Wings.”


  • Valdrakken Accord
    • Fixed an issue where the “Fitting In” quest could display rewards that were already owned.
