AUGUST 16, 2022

Dungeons and Raids

  • Mythic+
    • Grimrail Depot
      • Skylord Tovra
        • Rakun’s Diffused Energy zone positions have been adjusted, but also now show a warning visual at their location prior to becoming dangerous.
        • Spinning Spear is now correctly assigned the Stun mechanic, allowing the loss of control UI to function correctly.

Items and Rewards

  • Increased the vendor cost of Penumbra Thread to 11 gold (was 9 gold).
    • Developers’ note: This price change is to balance the decreased cost of reagents with the change to a regional commodity Auction House.

Player versus Player

  • The Conquest cap has been removed.
  • Spoils of War 25% Conquest and 40% Honor increased buff is now available until Shadowlands Season 4 ends.

Burning Crusade Classic

  • Fixed an issue that prevented the PvP leaderboards from updating as expected.

Still no fix to the problem with not getting credit for killing raid bosses. I love being screwed out of a dinar and having to wait another week to get my first.


I was at 9/30 week 1 and 19/30 week 2. I killed all 11 bosses yesterday and got 30/30 and my coin. Did you kill all bosses weeks 2 and 3?

AUGUST 17, 2022

Dungeons and Raids

  • Timewalking
    • Vault of the Wardens
      • Glazer
        • Temporarily disabled the Focus ability.


  • The objective text for the raid quest “Turning the Wheel” now correctly states that 15 boss kills are required.

How about fixing Lower KZ so it’s more in line with the rest of the M+ this season? We’ve been able to 2 chest +15 Taz and Mechagon but can’t even get past opera in lower in a +12.

Doesn’t seem right to me.


Don’t worry, they will… on Tuesday…

Here are today’s hotfixes to Shadowlands:

AUGUST 18, 2022

Dungeons and Raids

  • Mythic+
    • Affixes
      • Shrouded
        • Adjusted the health, melee damage, and ability damage of Nathrezim Infiltrators.
        • Vampiric Claws cooldown increased to 12 seconds (was 8 seconds).
          • Developers’ note: We discovered an issue that caused Nathrezim Infiltrators to have inconsistent health and damage, and as part of resolving the issue we had to adjust their health and damage values. The net result is that Nathrezim Infiltrators should feel slightly less powerful than they did previously.

Items and Rewards

  • Fixed an issue where items purchased with Puzzling Cartel Dinar could not be refunded.
  • Fixed an issue where Enforcer’s Stun Grenade, Kihra’s Adrenaline Injector, and Fleshrender’s Meathook did not reset their cooldowns upon ending an encounter.

You 2 chested +15 Mechagon? Where.

And they still haven’t fixed the in-game chat feature which they broke close to two months ago. :stuck_out_tongue:

I thought I’d be cheeky and predict a 2 chest since I knew we had Workshop and Junkyard keys. Didn’t work out. That doesn’t change the fact that lower kara is overtuned.

Based on your run history, I would say it’s right on target. Challenging, but not broken.

I’ve seen these talked about and I still have no clue what they are.

I’m 20/30 on the fated raid quest.

If you say so.

Edit: With your ilvl, you should be more than 1 chesting it on 15 if it’s not overtuned.

You remind me of Berith. Are you Berith?

I assume at the same time you checked to make sure nothing else was also scaling with player item level?

Get 30/30 and complete the quest. That should clear things right up.

Yeah. People on vacation in the guild so I’ll have to get it next time this raid is fated.

The first boss this week is kinda cringe, you just gotta stay on top of the adds. If you don’t get them down they can get overwhelming. Rest of it seems okay now.
