WoW Hotfixes - Updated October 25

Ulduar bosses Freya, Thorim and Hodir are bugged to not drop any of the hard mode loot unless it’s gold/runed orb. None of the weapons/armor have been dropping for anyone.
(Throwing this out with the slight hope that a community manager sees this as this has been a very annoying bug for almost a year now)

  • The Kalimdor Cup will now end on September 4 (was August 28), to give players more time to experience the races.


  • Fixed an issue causing some players to be unable to see Merithra in the Ancient Bough to pick up the quest “Into the Azure” to begin the Azure Span storyline.

WoW Classic Hardcore

  • Fixed a bug that could prevent a player-character who died from being allowed to be deleted or transferred to another realm.
  • Brave Moonhorn will no longer attack passing Alliance players. He remains a friendly questgiver to the Horde and is now a neutral PvP target to Alliance players.

How about fixing Garrison’s Monuments and Campaign Quest lines.

  • Secrets of Azeroth

What is up with Holy Pally mana regen? On an level 29 alt, its 87 in dungeons and world war mode, but in arena and bgs its 14. Is this a bug or for real, cuz casting 12 spells then being out of game for 5 min while mana returns is just not right

      • Rescue will no longer cause Verdant Embrace to be placed on cooldown if used while Flow State is active.


  • The Whirring Chainblade now has its appropriate minimum level required.

Mechagon is still broken. After this hotfix we are unable to start The Legend of Mechagon quest, even after completing the requirements up to and including unlocking Nazjatar World Quests. The issue occurs on multiple characters.

When the heck are you going to fix Garrison Monuments???

Ulduar bosses Freya, Thorim and Hodir are bugged to not drop any of the hard mode loot, no one can complete Ulduar Sets thanks to this bug that has been in game for one year now.

  • The Loamm Roamm Reverse Challenge silver medal should again be rewarded correctly.


  • Chromie now offers “No Limits”, a questline delving into Eternus’s past, without requiring the Dawn of the Infinites dungeon to be completed.
  • When “Stepping into the Shadows”, Maiev Shadowsong should no longer point at invisible Felflame Braziers.
  • Moraidormi now stops disappearing and Nozdormu will enter stealth more appropriately during the quest “Not Today, Fate.”
  • Demon Hunters who previously could not interact with the Control Console can now return to The Fel Hammer continue with their Order Hall campaign.
  • Tinkmaster Overspark is visible, and “The Legend of Mechagon” is once again available to players above level 60.

WoW Classic Era

  • For each player-character’s current Rank, weekly PvP contribution calculations now only award up to the amount of contribution points missing in progress towards the next Rank threshold.
    • Developers’ note: In higher ranks, players have been intentionally earning dishonorable kills to lower themselves below their current rank threshold in order to gain credit for an additional Rank, thereby allowing them to gain progress more quickly than a player who is just above that next Rank threshold. You now first earn up to the amount you’re missing from the Rank you start in. There should no longer be a benefit from lowering one’s rank via dishonorable kills to earn progress more quickly.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Honor reward for Alterac Valley marks turn-in quests to be unintentionally doubled.

Still no fix for Garrison Monuments?

  • Fixed an issue that was preventing players from being properly granted the baseline Challenger, Rival, and Duelist

WoW Classic

  • Fixed a bug that prevented the NPC Tyrion from turning back into a quest-giver at the conclusion of the quest “The Attack!”
  • Hardcore Realms
    • The Coarse Dynamite thrown by civilian dwarf NPCs at Dun Modr should no longer cause players to become PvP flagged.
    • Developers’ notes: These specific NPCs had a very small chance to hit you and flag you, so it may as well be zero chance. Nonetheless, we do not intend to make changes to the general behavior of enemy faction guards in Hardcore. Players who wish to avoid being flagged for PvP should avoid enemy faction settlements and quests labeled “PvP” in the Quest Log.

Player versus Player

  • Sarannis’ Mystic Sheen effectiveness reduced by 70% in PvP.

Secrets of Azeroth

  • On the secret day starting with “They Are Always Listening”, you should now get the quest “A Complete Inventory” from Fangli Hoot if you do not get it automatically by investigating all 6 notes.
  • Updated some of the quests to address issues where players could fail to receive a clue because secrets had been started on different characters.

WoW Classic Era and Hardcore

  • Fixed an issue where certain hunter pets could be dismissed and attack nearby players.

When are they going to fix the rogue leeching poison falling off constantly?

Every time you level, every time you go through a portal, if a cut scene happens, if you buy sell something, then the leeching poison stops working. It has to constantly be reapplied, it used to last as long as you had the other poisons up, now you have to keep watching to make sure it doesn’t fall off the character. You have to constantly reapply all your poisons just to keep it functioning.

Dragon Racing

  • Adjusted Gold and Silver times for the Flashfrost Flyover Reverse Challenge race. These were inadvertently set too high.


  • Engineering
    • Engineers can now purchase Sprocket Containers from Hobart Grapplehammer in Legion Dalaran at a cost of 50 Leystone and 10 Felslate each.


  • Fixed a bug that caused Zaqali Elders’ loot to drop at a lower item level than intended.

WoW Classic Era

  • [With Realm Restarts] Fixed a bug affecting bonus Honor awarded for Alterac Valley.
  • Completing “Fish in a Bucket” no longer rewards gold.
    • Developers’ notes: This change was originally made in patch 2.0.10 and works well in Classic Era/Hardcore, as the original quest provided an uncontested, single-faction, infinitely repeatable, low risk gold reward that does not comport with the nature of the rest of the game.

Sprocket Containers finally accessible :sob: thanks ya’ll

Cascading Power still gives a bugged Clearcasting proc if you use a Mana Gem without any previous procs stored and casting Arcane Explosion while you have a Concentration proc active bugs your next Arcane Missiles, both of these bugs cause you to have a channel of Clearcasted Arcane Missiles that don’t benefit from Slipstream or Amplification.

WAY too late… that place is deserted now after months of those world bosses rewarding virtually nothing. The players pointed out the drop rate loudly and repeatedly a very long time ago and the fix was a simple one - you guys just weren’t listening.

Blue post has nothing to do with drop rate

Yep, yer right, I misread it.
