Hotfixes

Maximum Artifact Knowledge level drops to 40 in latest WoW hotfix While this may sound like a nerf, hear me (and the WoW developers) out: hitting Artifact Knowledge 50 was going to be a serious grind, and grinds like that just aren’t any fun. Even with dropping AK to 40 you still get a significant Artifact Power boost, just without an endless grind ahead of you....

Class tweaks and bug fixes in latest WoW hotfixes It’s a new day and a new set of WoW hotfixes! The latest batch is mostly minor class tweaks — one-line changes for Monks, Warlocks, and Warriors, and equally minor notes for Mages and Paladins in PVP — plus a couple of bug fixes. Exciting? Not really, but affected classes will want to read up on...




Latest WoW hotfixes address Cathedral of Eternal Night and more The most recent hotfixes include some mild class fixes, changes for PvP, and some adjustments to dungeons. The big changes were all to Cathedral of Eternal Night, which saw some significant nerfs overall. Agronox saw the most adjustment, and if you’ve been having a hard time in the Cathedral, now seems like a good time...

Latest WoW hotfixes include Nighthold nerfs, PVP tweaks and more A new round of patch 7.2 hotfixes have been released, including quite a few gentle nerfs to both the Grand Magistrix Elisande and Gul’dan encounters on several different levels of difficulty. If you’ve been having issues with either encounter, you may want to take a look and see which changes affect your raid. In addition,...

Group Finder addon hotfix breaks familiar addons In an effort to combat issues with realm performance and latency, Blizzard has changed the way addons interact with the Group Finder feature in a recent hotfix. Apparently, the automation behind creating and joining groups was responsible for many of these issues — even if a player wasn’t using the addon in question. So what...

Latest hotfixes take another pass at Prot Paladin Artifact Challenges A new round of patch 7.2 hotfixes have been released, and while the list is short, it contains some notable changes. Protection Paladins trying their hands at the Artifact Challenge will find it just a little easier as both Inquisitor Variss and Highlord Kruul have had their health reduced. In addition, Death Knights, Druids, and...




Latest WoW hotfixes address Tank Artifact Challenge and more A new round of Legion hotfixes have been released, and while the list is short, it contains some pretty important changes. Tanks that are trying to finish their Artifact Challenge should find the experience a little easier to accomplish after a series of gentle nerfs and buffs to various mobs in the encounter. Several changes...

Latest WoW hotfixes feature more class changes The latest WoW hotfixes are here, and if nothing else they give North American players something to read while waiting for the servers to come up. While we had some Warlock class changes last week and we know a lot more changes are coming in patch 7.2.5, we have another batch of changes here. Among them are...



Hidden Artifact appearance and Warlock changes in April 12 Hotfixes If you’ve been working on your Hidden Artifact appearances and noticed you suddenly have the one for running dungeons, it’s not a bug, but a deliberate hotfix. With the Challenge Artifacts appearances now attainable, Blizzard decided to lower the amount of dungeons you needed to run with the hidden skin, because they wanted to let...

Artifact Challenge boss nerfs and other WoW Hotfixes for April 10 So far, I’ve seen a lot of complaints about Thunderslash being nerfed and not any complaints about Inquisitor Variss getting watered down in this round of hotfixes for Patch 7.2. DKs, Demon Hunters, Hunters, Mages, Warlocks and Warriors all saw Artifact Traits get some buffs or nerfs, and there were changes to dungeons, class halls...

Legion Assaults no longer needed for flying, plus more WoW hotfixes So far, Legion Assaults have been less than popular. The North American Assaults have mostly happened while people are at work or asleep, making them difficult to complete — and even if you can get to one, they’re time-consuming and buggy. That made them a headache for anyone trying finish Broken Isles Pathfinder Part Two, which grants Legion flying. But...

Latest WoW hotfixes include Nethershard tuning, Agronox nerfs Hotfixes for April 4th are here, focusing on the Broken Shore, a few class bugs, Group Finder and Mythic Keystone runs, and Mythic Agronox. Among today’s fixes are additional tuning to Nethershard drops on the Broken Shore, which was significantly reduced post-patch. The developers explain that these changes are “aimed at aligning the pacing of the Sentinax...

Nethershard farming has gotten harder in latest hotfixes There’s no hiding it: as we’ve stumbled through the Timeless Isles Tanaan Jungle the Broken Shore we’ve stumbled into more than a few bugs. The latest hotfixes squash a few more Broken Shore problems and continue to address class issues Blizzard has had trouble with. But the big news here is Nethershards. Over the weekend you...

Elisande finally fixed, plus more WoW hotfixes Update: The Elisande encounter should be fixed now. Good luck weekend raiders! Patch 7.2 hasn’t been great for raiders, with bugs hitting many Nighthold bosses. While Trilliax was hotfixed almost immediately, fixes for Elisande have taken longer. This week, her Arcanetic Rings had a much larger radius than they appeared to have, and their high damage meant a lot of dead players. To...

Latest WoW patch 7.2 hotfixes focus on class bugs It’s no surprise that a new patch comes with plenty of hotfixes as Blizzard works to fix issues that only became obvious when the whole playerbase hit the servers. Chances are, we’ll see a few weeks of frequent hotfixes until the dust around patch 7.2 has settled. The latest hotfixes speed up Broken Shore progression and fix...

WoW’s outdoor mobs no longer scale quite as badly With patch 7.2, a stealthy change made outdoor mobs scale up with player’s ilevel — which was, to put it mildly, tremendously unpopular. The change was intended to make content on the Broken Isles feel challenging even as you progressed, but as implemented it made getting an ilevel upgrade feel like a power downgrade. After all,...
