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...

Diablo patch 2.6.0a fixes Necromancer portraits, transmog bugs Diablo 3’s Patch 2.6.0a isn’t the big content-heavy patch that 2.6.0 itself was, but what it brings us is relief from some bugs, updates to things meant to be updated before now, and some cleaning-up of the dust left behind in the wake of a major content patch. In addition to fixes for the German...




Karazhan nerfs and a Warglaive fix in latest WoW hotfixes Today’s WoW hotfixes bring some nerfs to the rather tough upper Karazhan, but the more interesting part of these patch notes — at least to Demon Hunters — is a tweak to the I’ll Hold These For You Until You Get Out Achievement. This achievement, awarded to anyone who finished the Black Temple Timewalking raid and...

You can pick up double XP in Diablo 3 starting now The latest Diablo 3 hotfixes meant to be implemented last week had to be delayed. Among other things, the hotfixes addressed set bonuses for the Grace of Inarius and Bones of Rathma sets. In good news, the technical issues have been solved, and the hotfixes have been properly applied. In addition to the hotfixes rolling out,...

WoW Patch 7.2.5 Hotfixes: Black Temple Timewalking lockouts and Tomb of Sargeras bugs Good news everybody! No, the slime is not flowing again, but Black Temple Timewalking lockouts are now fixed. When the first Timewalking raid came out on Tuesday, players quickly found out that the raid lockout was working like Mythic: players were locked to the instance ID rather than per boss. This meant that people could not join another fresh or in-progress group if they had already killed bosses. The lockout issue will be resolved with realm restarts in the morning.

Latest WoW hotfixes address more PVP tuning changes A small batch of hotfixes for patch 7.2.5 hit the servers today, mostly implementing more PVP tuning changes for Druids, Monks, Paladins, Priests, and Shaman. In addition, it appears Atonement was increasing damage buffs on pets more than was actually intended — that’s been adjusted. And for players deep into Mythic Tomb of Sargeras, the...




Thisalee and Broll get their shift together in latest WoW hotfixes Last Friday night, World of Warcraft received a new batch of hotfixes that made changes to a game-breaking bug many players had hoped to see fixed long ago. I speak, of course, of Thisalee Crow and Broll Bearmantle not knowing when it was appropriate to shapeshift into Travel Form. Those two originally were supposed to...

Diablo 3 hotfixes address the Bones of Rathma, Era leaderboards reset A new set of hotfixes for Diablo 3 hit the servers today, mostly addressing the behavior of certain items and item sets. In particular, the Bones of Rathma six-piece set bonus was the recipient of some substantial reworking, based on player feedback. With the rework, players will only need to summon four Skeletal Mages to...



Latest WoW hotfixes nerf Cathedral of Eternal Night and fix cooldowns for line of sight The latest WoW hotfixes are in and, while few in number, are relatively impactful. First up is a nice quality of life change for Warriors and Demon Hunters. Heroic Leap, Infernal Strike, and Metamorphosis will no longer go on cooldown if the target is out of line of sight. Most spells just fail to cast when...

Latest hotfixes address Druid champion bugs, PVP changes, and more Last night’s hotfixes implemented all those PVP balance tuning changes that were mentioned earlier this week, plus a little more. In addition to the ones listed on Wednesday, two new changes were added to the mix. Arms Warriors now have a 6 second cooldown before canceling Defensive Stances, down from 10. And Affliction Warlocks have...

Class tuning and Tomb of Sargeras tweaks in latest WoW hotfixes It’s a new day, which means a new round of hotfixes have hit World of Warcraft, balancing classes, tweaking the Tomb of Sargeras, and fixing bugs. We heard about most of the class changes yesterday, when Kaivax announced Blizzard was working on class balance in Tomb of Sargeras. The curve ball in the mix is a...

Class changes coming alongside release of Mythic and LFR Tomb of Sargeras Hot on the tails of the latest WoW hotfixes, which included tuning for the Tomb of Sargeras encounters, we have a round of class tuning to ensure every spec is competitive on their journey into the Tomb. That means an across the board buff for Havoc Demon Hunters, Survival Hunters, and Windwalker Monks, but a...

Latest WoW hotfixes address Tomb of Sargeras encounters and Ahune rewards A few more hotfixes have come in for World of Warcraft, this time targeting several encounters in the Tomb of Sargeras raid as well as making small changes in a few other areas of the game. Of particular note are the fixes to the Sisters of the Moon fight, which had a chance to bug...

And if you’re one of us, there’s another source of Writhing Essence to pick up to make completing the upgrade easier: namely your first Heroic dungeon of the day. Just hotfixed: Completing your first Legion Heroic dungeon each day...

Latest WoW hotfixes address Writhing Essence drops, Torch Tossing credit A short list of hotfixes for World of Warcraft have just been released, including a change to Writhing Essence drops. Players were understandably concerned with the fact that extra Writhing Essences over the 50 required for a legendary upgrade token were being wasted on turn in. Writhing Essences have now been changed to a new...

Latest WoW hotfixes feature a few class tweaks A small batch of hotfixes for World of Warcraft was released late last night for patch 7.2.5. It’s a very brief list, but Death Knights, Monks, and Warlocks all received some minor tweaks.
