WoW Hotfixes - Updated October 25

“We’ll never trader’s tokens for $4.99. That being said, we created this $5 bundle that has 200 tendies and two corsages lol haha lmao xd”

But let’s be honest. This $5 for 200 tenders is just a price anchor so blizzard can say “Why cancel your $15 a month sub when you get $25 a month worth of tendies just to keep your sub active lol please dont quit wow we’re trying to make it better we promise


Did we get shadowlands timewalking today?

Castle nathria is up in lfr finder.

I find the entire thing funny. All these people clamoring for some regurgitated relics from years ago. Instead of actually developing new content ,I guess when you are starving anything is better than nothing right?

Dungeons and Raids

  • Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible
    • The Forgotten Experiments
      • Fixed an issue causing the periodic damage of Unstable Essence to not apply correctly.
  • Neltharus
    • Fixed an issue where Burning Chains could sometimes fail to damage enemies.

  • The drop rate of catch-up Splintered Sparks of Shadowflame has been greatly increased for PvP content.
  • Fixed an issue that caused catch-up Splintered Sparks of Shadowflame to not drop as often as intended from certain Rated PvP activities.

When can we expect a catch-up for Trophies of Strife from the Sparks of Life weekly WPvP quest? With Conquest being uncapped and with this recent Splintered Sparks of Shadowflame catch-up buff, Trophies of Strife are still the only thing that is capped out at obtaining 8 per week.

Could we maybe see turning the Sparks of Life quest into a repeatable quest until one catches up? I feel like it would be very beneficial to WPvP if a catch up like this was introduced! Thanks

I know yall don’t really care about pvp, but can you do something about MM hunters taking 75% of your HP away with aimed shot? I sit around 800k health and it’s ridiculous.

my suggestion for Aimed Shot is it actually require Aiming to justify its damage. it should be a skill shot with a very small telegraph outlining the path.

Not that I disagree, but I would prefer that they just give MM hunters single target damage literally anywhere else :woman_shrugging:

The death chakrams are cute, maybe buff those. Maybe arcane shot doesn’t have to be so weak without multiple talent points buffing it!

Unrelated but MM should not be capped at any amount of targets, this is making it very unenjoyable in mythic+, it should have the same target scaling that specs like fire mage get access to.

      • Fixed an issue that caused Lifebloom to be castable in Moonkin Form when talented into Undergrowth.

  • Mage
    • Fixed an issue that caused Mass Invisibility to cancel inconsistently, with no direct actions taken.
    • Developers’ notes: This change also adjusts the timing of when Mass Invisibility is removed from spell casts. Mass Invisibility now cancels when beginning a cast, instead of when it ends, which is consistent with other invisibility effects.
    • Fire
      • Flamestrike damage reduced by 6%.
      • Flame Patch damage reduced by 8%.
      • Incendiary Flames can now only proc once every 10 seconds (was 8 seconds).
      • Conflagration damage reduced by 10%.
      • Developers’ notes: Fire Mage damage in heavy AoE scenarios is still higher than we’re comfortable with. We intend these adjustments to further rein it in.
  • Monk
    • Mistweaver

      • Yu’lon’s Grace can now stack up to 15% of maximum health (was 10%) and stacks 3% per second (was 2%).
      • Chi Cocoon’s absorb is increased by 100%.
      • Enveloping Breath’s healing decreased by 12%.
      • Developers’ notes: We’re shifting more of Celestial Harmony’s throughput into Chi Cocoon, with the intent of keeping the talent’s power level similar in raid, and increased in dungeon content.
  • Paladin
    • Holy
      • All damage decreased by 10%.
      • Blessing of Summer now causes attacks to deal 20% additional damage as Holy (was 25%). Blessing of Summer remains at 30% in PvP c
      • Developers’ notes: Holy Paladin damage output has been higher than we would like, considering their toolkit as a whole.
  • Rogue
    • Assassination
      • All ability damage increased by 5%.
      • Auto-attack damage increased by 5%.
  • Warrior
    • Protection

Dungeons and Raids [With weekly realm maintenance]

  • M+ Dungeons
    • Above keystone level 20, each additional keystone level will now increase enemy health and damage by 8% (was 10%).
    • Developers’ notes: We’ve recently made and are currently making a number of adjustments to specs that were particularly powerful in Mythic+, and while we feel these changes will have the desired effect, we’ve also heard concerns that it may now be much more difficult to complete very high keys and achieve ratings that were previously within reach. We think this is a fair concern, so we’re making a temporary adjustment to the scaling of key levels above 20 in the hope that it provides players some space to continue competing for Mythic+ rating before the end of Season 2.
  • Halls of Infusion
    • Glacial Proto-Dragon’s Deep Chill now damages affected players every 2 seconds (was every 1 seconds). This reduces the damage over time portion of the spell by 50%.
  • Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr
    • Infinite Timereaver’s Stolen Time cooldown increased to 8 seconds (was 4 seconds).
    • Developers’ notes: We’ve heard feedback that certain dungeon creature abilities can feel oppressive for groups without access to Mass Dispel, and we’re hoping these abilities will now feel more manageable for those groups.
  • Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible
    • Echo of Neltharion
      • Neltharion’s health reduced by 5% on mythic difficulty.
      • Voice from Beyond’s health reduced by 5% on Mythic difficulty.
      • Ebon Destruction’s periodic damage reduced by 10% on Mythic difficulty.
      • Shatter’s periodic damage reduced by 10% on Mythic difficulty.

      • Prescience now grants 6% critical strike chance in PvP combat (was 3%).
      • Developers’ notes: The Augmentation Evoker ability to extend game length has been more effective than we would like, so we’re decreasing the effectiveness of some healing spells. Additionally, we’re shifting more of Ebon Might’s output into the Evoker themselves.
  • Hunter
    • Explosive Shot damage increased by 20% in PvP.
    • Beast Mastery
      • Kill Shot deals 10% increased damage in PvP (was 9% decreased).

      • Aegis of Wrath increases Power Word: Shield by 20% (was 30%) and decays by 2% (was 3%) every second in PvP combat.
      • Developers’ notes: Aegis of Wrath was too impactful in PvP due to its ability to deal with burst damage, so we’re reducing Discipline’s reliance on the talent and baking in some of its power to Power Word: Shield baseline. This should encourage more build diversity and give Discipline a small bump up in PvP.
  • Shaman
    • Elemental
      • Lava Burst damage is now increased by 12% in PvP combat.
      • Lightning Bolt damage is now increased by 45% in PvP combat (was 31%).

      • Stormstrike’s damage is increased by 60% in PvP combat (was 45%).
      • Ice Strike’s damage increased by 45% in PvP combat.
      • Developers’ notes: We’re evening out the rate at which Enhancement Shaman deals its damage, as it is more reliant on inconsistent procs than we would like.
  • Warlock
    • Corruption now deals 25% increased damage in PvP combat (was 10%).
      Shadow Bolt now deals 60% increased damage in PvP combat (was 30%).

    • Empty Kettle of Stone Soup and Hoard of Draconic Delicacies should now correctly transform into their completed feasts when enough ingredients have been contributed.

nerfs boomy leaves sub rouge WW fire / arcane alone 100k FoF ticks 230k rsk fire mage doing doubles peoples damage with 10 seconds of immune to death if you dont have a purge and or not playing mm hunter to 1 shot the mage
buffing rapid fire for almost no reason?
chaos bolt can do 200k with 1 cast with infernal combustion and pet sac proc after buffs
aug is still in the game???

Priest and Augs will be continually nerfed until they are useless.


This isn’t going to fix the main issue with assassination rogues. We need actual work done on the class or a full rework like other specs because rogues are feeling the pain. 3 damage specs and only 1 is actually usable to get into groups or be effective.

nerf AUG EVO not others class…

PLAYERS NOTE : were not compe player some of us are solo que

Was your nephew not content getting 34 KBs every BG? There’s no other way you can justify this absurdity.

Stop buffing damage which only improves their position in BGs where they are already gods, and start improving their defenses so they can compete in arena.


Buff MM and Affliction in pvp? This is incredibly tone deaf to what’s going on lol
