Patch 7.1.5

Nighthold raiding tweaks in latest WoW hotfixes Last night’s hotfixes were a grab bag of small bug fixes for various classes, quests, and professions, plus changes for Grand Magistrix Elisande, the final boss in wing 3 of the Nighthold raid. Her Cascadent Star attack that does massive splash damage has had that damage increased (20%) and its cast time significantly sped up...

Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl disabled, new round of hotfixes released The Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl, second of the new micro holidays introduced in patch 7.1.5, was scheduled to be released today. Unfortunately, players looking forward to the micro-holiday are going to have to wait a while longer. Due to some previously undiscovered issues that didn’t pop up in the PTR, the holiday has been disabled...




Shadow Word: Shadow Priest AOE in Legion Hello, Shadow Priests! Have you missed me? I’ve missed you. It’s been a while since we’ve talked, but patch 7.1.5 has thankfully given us plenty to talk about. Some of it’s good, some of it’s bad — but the bads aren’t horrible and the goods are pretty dang nice, so I’m still putting 7.1.5 down...

Latest WoW hotfixes focus on squishing bugs Say goodbye to bugs… or at least some of them. The latest hotfixes are all about bug fixes, with a few item changes and some PVP balancing thrown in for good measure. On top of this round of hotfixes, there have been a number of changes since patch 7.1.5 went live, and if you’re struggling to keep...

The Warrior’s Charge: Warriors in patch 7.1.5 It’s been a few days since patch 7.1.5 went live. It hasn’t exactly been a resounding success for us Warriors. I’m willing to argue that has a lot to do with how it changed other classes rather than what it did to us — save for a few tweaks and a reasonably large change to...

Totem Talk: Elemental and Restoration Shaman in Patch 7.1.5 Patch 7.1.5 is here and we Shaman received a rather large number of changes. All three specs got some attention, though Elemental and Enhancement moreso than Restoration. Reactions have been varied, and I’ve seen equal amounts of hope and doomsaying. Today we’re going to take a look at what changed. We won’t cover everything, but certainly...




Bug fixes abound in the latest round of WoW hotfixes It’s all about bug fixes in the latest WoW hotfixes. Tonight’s round addresses a number of annoyances that cropped up after patch 7.1.5 went live, like the unintended nerf to Druid Travel Form which dropped it down to 189% speed. (However, we don’t have an exact statistic on the speed of Travel Form when the Druid is shot...

Artifact Traits in PVP are the first big change in patch 7.1.5 hotfixes Patch day has come and gone, and that means we’re heading into hotfix week. The first hotfixes for patch 7.1.5 have arrived, and we’ll no doubt have more as Blizzard works the kinks out of the patch. But considering just how much was in 7.1.5, this batch of hotfixes is actually pretty small, with a...



Are you ready for Patch 7.1.5? Ready or not, by the time you read this (if you’re on North American realms anyway) the patch will soon be deploying on servers. Patch 7.1.5 has a lot of class adjustments, Timewalking Mists of Pandaria dungeons, a whole rework to the Brawler’s Guild, the advent of the Micro-Holidays and more. There will be changes to...

Everything you need to know about patch 7.1.5 Notes for the 7.1.5 patch have been released — and for a “small” patch, there is a lot to read here. This patch’s standout features include: Substantial changes to classes: Wowhead has a rundown on changes to every class. Substantial changes to secondary stats in an attempt to better balance them for all classes and specs....

EU players, get your World Quests done tonight because they reset tomorrow While NA maintenance has wrapped up (and quests reset), European players will face the same issue before their maintenance on January 11, from 3:00 – 7:00 CET. If there’s a World Quest on your map that you’ve been too busy to finish, you need to get it done before then. That’s because according to @WarcraftDevs active World Quests...

Legion Q&A with the adorable Paul Kubit on Thursday Just on the heels of patch 7.1.5, we’re getting another Legion Q&A. This Thursday, Senior Game Designer Paul Kubit will be answering questions about the Brawlers’ Guild, Micro-Holidays, Timewalking, and Professions. With the updated Brawlers’ guild, Micro-Holidays, and Timewalking going into the game starting tomorrow, we’re sure to have plenty of questions. If you want your question answered,...

Would you like Timewalking raids? Patch 7.1.5 will be arriving tomorrow, and with it, Pandaria dungeons are being added to the Timewalking rotation. This means that the only dungeons not on that list are vanilla dungeons, and Warlords dungeons — and with Warlords so soon behind us, it’s no wonder it hasn’t been added just yet. But it does make...

Patch 7.1.5 coming to WoW on January 10 That’s right, everyone: patch 7.1.5 is only a few short days away. This mini-patch will be hitting the game next Tuesday, January 10 (or the 11th for European realms), just one week before the Nighthold raid goes live. Of course, this “mini” patch really isn’t that mini. It’s packed full of features, including: Class changes to...

Get some Overwatch in your WoW with Ogrewatch The Brawler’s Guild returns in patch 7.1.5 with all new encounters and you’ll find one of these encounters very familiar if you pay attention to Blizzard’s other games. One of these encounters is one you’ll find very familiar if you pay attention to Blizzard’s other games. Ogrewatch is, not surprisingly, a new brawl where you...

Zen Meditation: Brewmaster in patch 7.1.5 It’s been some time since we’ve met, fellow monks. I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday season, with friends and family alike. This raid tier has nearly ended, and on the horizon, the Nighthold looms with the promises of 7.1.5. It seems that for what we’ve experienced in Legion, Brewmasters in particular have...
