Latest WoW fixes nerf Kil’jaeden on Normal and Mythic difficulties

Before we head into the weekend, Blizzard released a small round of hotfixes that should make raid groups pretty happy. Kil’jaeden has received nerfs in both Normal and Mythic difficulties, with the Normal nerfs being flat reductions in damage and the Mythic nerfs more in the ‘quality-of-life’ category that should make the encounter easier.

Sadly, those of you hoping to see a Kil’jaeden kill in LFR that doesn’t require multiple stacks of Determination will have to wait — none of today’s hotfixes will affect the LFR version of the latest Big Bad. Though, with how groups are faring, I wouldn’t be surprised to see LFR nerfs sometime next week after the dust has settled and more players get an idea of the fight.

Oh, and there was a small change to Darkheart Thicket’s eggs. Yup. See for yourself:
