Latest WoW hotfixes bring on more Karazhan nerfs

The latest round of WoW hotfixes brings with it even more nerfs to Return to Karazhan, focusing primarily on Mythic difficulty. The last round of hotfixes focused on encounters in Upper Return to Karazhan, and this time, most of the attention is focused on Lower. Many of the bosses on Mythic have seen a reduction in either damage or health, along with some ability tweaks.

It’s unclear why Mythic difficulty is getting so many nerfs right now — the dungeon was added to the Group Finder back in 7.2 as a Heroic option, but it’s been available on Mythic difficulty since it was first released in patch 7.1. Regardless, players that haven’t cleared the place on Mythic should find it a little easier to handle now.

In addition, Paladins make a note — Light of Dawn should now be functioning correctly with Aura of Sacrifice. And Priests should be relieved to hear that Harjatan’s Drenching Waters ability will no longer affect them when in Spirit of Redemption form during that encounter. Read on for the full list of hotfixes.
