Latest WoW hotfixes let Nomi burn more food
You probably think that headline is a joke. It is not a joke. With Nomi, there are no jokes, only tears. Tears which you can use to douse the still-smoldering results of his cooking efforts. Here’s the actual line from the hotfixes:
Nomi will now also check your bank to see if you have any Silver Mackerel for him to burn.
Thanks, Blizzard. No, really, thanks. :(
PVPers should also take note — and Mitch has insisted I link his article on Shadow Priest PVP here — because there are some major PVP changes in this round of fixes, including a 10% primary stat reduction on all PVP templates. It highlight just how much Blizzard can now tweak PVP on the fly, but we’ll have to see how much it helps balance PVP in practice.
Version 1.0.2 is now available. Updates include:
- Artifact XP World Quests now show a single icon on the map.
- Fixed an occasional error while collecting the first ready troop.
- Champions below level 110 now show level instead of item level on the mission results panel.
- Times now display the top two units in most places (example: hours and minutes instead of just hours).
- Fixed an issue where a previously-collected troop would appear to be ready for pickup.
- (Guardian) The Embrace the Nightmare artifact trait now properly grants crowd control immunity while Rage of the Sleeper is active.
- Ironfur can no longer be dispelled.
- Flurry no longer causes enemies to attack you until the missile lands and deals damage.
- (Windwalker) The artifact trait Tornado Kicks should now benefit from Mastery: Combo Strikes.
- Devotion Aura should correctly be canceled upon changing specializations or talents
- Death from Above should now correctly deal its initial AOE damage to all nearby targets, regardless of the direction faced.
- (Assassination) Fixed a bug that was causing Poison Knives to deal very little damage to targets beyond the first.
- (Subtlety) Soothing Darkness will now only heal the player once per second while Shadow Dance is active.
- (Shadow) Casting Void Eruption with less than 7 seconds of Lingering Insanity no longer causes Void Form to immediately drop.
- Fade and Surrender to Madness can no longer be used while silenced or pacified.
- Unstable Affliction’s silence backlash can no longer be grounded and reflected.
- Warlocks can now run through the portal to their Class Hall to be successfully teleported to their Class Hall.
- Mage Class Hall NPCs will now be present as intended during the completion events for “Into the Oculus”.
- Maw of Souls
- Fixed an issue where disconnected players could become stuck in Kvaldir Cages.
- Items gained from the Druid Class Hall Evergreen perk are now soulbound.
- The toys Blingtron’s Circuit Design Tutorial, Runas’ Crystal Grinder, JewelCraft, and Trigger should no longer be stackable.
- Gnomish Gearworks and Goblin Workshop items are now restricted to use in Warlords of Draenor zones.
- The Starlight Beacon should now more reliably trigger its 15-second cooldown.
- Fixed a bug where Potion of the Old War was not triggering as often as intended.
- Basilisks that appear when mining an ore node or creature will only drop additional ore for miners with at least 75 skill.
- The archaeology quest “Echoes of My Ancestors” should no longer propagate credit to other group members.
- The Mark of the Hidden Satyr enchant should no longer reset your auto-attack swing timer when it activates.
- The recipes that Nomi teaches you are no longer unique.
- Nomi will now also check your bank to see if you have any Silver Mackerel for him to burn.
- Fixed a bug that caused some Elite PvP gear to be awarded at ratings that were too low.
- The primary stat on all templates has been decreased by about 10%.
- Discipline Priests now deal 15% less damage in PvP, and all other healing specs now deal 25% less damage in PvP
- Developers’ Notes: Since all healing specs have had their Intellect increased (detailed below) to increase their healing, we’ve lowered the amount of damage they do against players to 25% (from 15%). Discipline priests are intended to do more damage than other healers and so their damage done is only decreased by 15%.
- Pets and guardians now take 75% reduced AoE damage in PvP (was 50%).
- Tanks now take 25% more damage from other players.
- The stamina of each tank spec has been increased slightly in PvP instances (battlegrounds, arenas, and Ashran).
- Players who race in or around the Watch Tower Assault: Nightwatcher’s Perch during the “Ley Race” quest are no longer flagged for PvP.
- Players who backfill into an Ashran that is closing down because there are not enough players will not receive the Recreant debuff once the Ashran closes.
- Chilled Conjured Water, Ley-Enriched Water, Pail of Warm Milk, ‘Bottled’ Ley-Enriched Water, Manaelle’s Sparkling Cider, and Arcberry Juice can now be used in Arenas and Rated Battlegrounds.
- Prestige 4 players will now properly receive The Honorable title when reaching honor level 50.
- Demon Hunter
- Agility reduced by 10% in PvP.
- (Restoration) Intellect increased by 15%.

- Abandoning “Cry Thunder!” will now cause Vethir to despawn, and will remove the player from the mount. Players can voluntarily exit the vehicle at any point, which will teleport them to the ground if they’re very high.
- Fixed a bug that could cause Illidan Stormrage to prevent the “Ravencrest’s Legacy” scenario from continuing.
