Patch 7.2

Blizzard goes behind the scenes with A Found Memento cinematic If you’re a Horde player, you may not have seen the cinematic at the end of the lengthy quest chain that begins with A Found Memento. Considering the subject material, the quest was naturally only available to Alliance players. However, it’s a pretty impactful moment in World of Warcraft lore, regardless of your faction. With...

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...




Is the grind too daunting to come back? I took a month off from World of Warcraft to play Diablo 3 and some other games we don’t cover here. My last few times in WoW since coming back have been… somewhat disheartening. Everyone is flying, and I’m not even Honored with Legionfall yet. The rep grinds are extremely daunting, not to mention all...

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...

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...




Do you like WoW’s Legion Assaults? Legion Assaults started this week and, honestly, I’ve found them to be pretty lackluster. Blizzard said they’d be like the pre-expansion invasions but so far they’ve been somewhat of a letdown. Invasions were great. Players of all levels would charge in, swarming the zone, heading off together to each objective. And if you missed one...

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...



Legion Assaults are now live in WoW If you’re working on Broken Isles Pathfinder Part Two (come on, you are) you’ll be relieved to know that you can start working on Defender of the Broken Isles. That achievement is earned by completing all of the new Legion Assaults, which are now live on NA servers. The first Assault is in Azsuna and will...

Shadow Word: Tips for unlocking the new challenge Artifact appearance Greetings, Shadow Priests! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? But 7.2 is here now, and more importantly, so is Thwarting the Twins, the quest that will allow us to unlock our newest ‘hidden’ Artifact appearance. Personally, I’ve been a huge fan of this appearance since it first showed up in the files, so I’m diving...

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...

How do you like the Broken Shore? With patch 7.2 comes the advent of the Broken Shore, a familiar concept to us by now. Not only because it’s the place we started the expansion in, but because it brings an outdoor zone with various activities, resources to farm up, and content to unlock. It’s not dissimilar to the Isle of Thunder combined...

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,...

WoW patch 7.2: Mobs scaling with ilevel is intended Update: After a mountain of negative feedback, Blizzard has dialed down scaling. While outdoor mobs still scale based on your ilevel, they scale a lot less than they used to. The original post, along with Watcher’s reasoning on the changes, is below. After patch 7.2 rolled out, players noted some new scaling on outdoor mobs on the...

First batch of WoW patch 7.2 hotfixes fix Trilliax Hotfixes, piping hot! No sooner did we get a new patch than we saw a host of issues in need of fixes… though these hotfixes just scratch the surface. But there are some solid fixes here, including re-adding the Ahead of the Curve: Gul’dan achievement (which should be available until Tomb of Sargeras opens). Still, the...
