WoW Hotfixes - Updated September 27

Hello! Here’s today’s hotfixes to Lower Karazhan:

SEPTEMBER 6, 2022

Dungeons and Raids

  • Mythic+
    • Return to Karazhan: Lower
      • Developers’ note: The Opera events in Lower Karazhan have proven to be more lethal than we’d like, particularly given the weekly rotation that makes them more challenging to master in Mythic+. We’ve made a number of adjustments here in hopes of bringing the difficulty of these events in line with our expectations.
      • The Opera Hall: Beautiful Beast
        • Silver Forks health reduced by 50%.
        • Silver Forks Bloody Jab damage over time reduced by 50%.
        • Mrs. Cauldrons’ Soup Spray damage reduced by 30%.
        • Luminore’s Heat Wave damage reduced by 30%.
      • The Opera Hall: Westfall Story
        • Gang Ruffian’s Poisonous Shank damage over time reduced by 50%.
        • Mrrgria’s Thunder Ritual damage reduced by 30%.
      • The Opera Hall: Wikket
        • Winged Assistant’s health reduced by 25%.
        • Winged Assistant’s Throw “Stuff” damage reduced by 30%.

SEPTEMBER 7, 2022

Dungeons and Raids

  • Fated Raids
    • Sepulcher of the First Ones
      • The Jailer
        • Resolved an issue where the Creation Spark fated power could negatively affect the following ability durations: Arcane Vulnerability, Azerite Radiation, Rune of Domination, Rune of Compulsion, Rune of Damnation, Torment, Imprisonment, and Death Sentence.
        • Resolved an issue where Rune of Compulsion-afflicted players negatively interact with movement speed increasing effects.

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Druid
    • Shapeshifting into Cat Form once again automatically activates Track Humanoids.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented Tauren from using the Barber Shop.
  • It will now rain blood when Highlord Darion Mograine says “The skies turn red with the blood of the fallen!” during the Death Knight quest “The Light of Dawn.“

Creation Spark has hundreds of “bugs” associated with it because the time increase doesn’t actually result in a benefit for most people. Your cool-downs fall off faster, debuffs fall off faster, debuffs tick faster without falling off sooner (skolex), tanks defensives fall off sooner, like honestly change the buff to, 15/30% haste and 15/30% CDR and remove this time crap.

Here are today’s hotfixes!

SEPTEMBER 9, 2022

Characters

  • Fixed an issue where the Dark Ranger customization options for Blood Elf, Night Elf, and Void Elf were missing.

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Whirlwind animations, such as the Warrior’s Whirlwind and a Rogue’s Fan of Knives, will now appear while moving (was only while standing still).
  • Druid
    • Track Humanoids will no longer activate when shapeshifting into Cat Form if Find Minerals, Find Fish, or Find Herbs is already active.
  • Rogue
    • Fixed an issue where Overkill would be applied and immediately removed on rogues who did not know that talent.
  • True to their vocation, Argent Outfitters will now exchange Necrotic Runes for armor and other items in Orgrimmar, Thunder Bluff, and Silvermoon City. They will make their way to the Undercity once enough Scourge have been defeated across Azeroth.
  • During the quest “City of Light,” Khadgar’s Servant will now continue giving its tour even if the player is not nearby.
  • Zombies are no longer unstoppable by benefitting from Preparation at the start of battlegrounds. Alterac Valley weekend is saved!
  • Gathering nodes will now have a sparkling visual effect when being tracked.
  • Fixed an issue where Group Finder activity level ranges were not correct. They should now more closely match the levels of the Meeting Stones for those dungeons.
  • Players can now list and browse the Group Finder for dungeons that are below their level.
  • Latency and other performance information is now visible in the tooltip of the Game Menu button.
  • Players can now report character friends.

Would it be possible for nightborne to also get the dark ranger customization? The achievement says: “Reward: Dark Ranger Elf customization” so I still am not sure why they were excluded from this?

Could you add more time to Iron docks? with all the trash, the size of the area, etc. Time is not enough, it is like DOS in its first weeks of release, where time is not enough or like TOP.

It would be really great if you could confirm if any pvp tuning will be done at all for the rest of the season.

I don’t understand why they keep working on everything in lower kara except the problems with lower kara. Every single run the problems is trash. The trash both randomly overpulls and is gravely overtuned to start with. The trash mobs have more health and do more damage than any of the opera bosses ever did. Lower kara would be one of the most fun dungeons in the game if they would reduce the trash damage in half. It would let us actually have fun with all the weird random pulls.

Lower Kara is unrecognizable at this point. It’s been nerfed so hard it isn’t a problem. There are still bugs, like pulling through floors, but scaling is a non-issue.

Oh man… i didn’t know that was a thing! I bet that was a mess
