World of Warcraft hotfixes for April 6

Tonight’s hotfixes are a bit of a grab bag, but the big change tonight is a bug fix for the Blackhand encounter in Blackrock Foundry. If case you were in a group recently that just couldn’t take Blackhand out, it was probably because the encounter’s slag bombs were exploding instantly — resulting in more than one wiped raid. Hopefully this means your next Blackhand run will be smoother.

Check out the full list of changes below.

  • Legacy
    • Dragon Soul, Warmaster Blackhorn: Fixed an issue that could cause the encounter to not drop loot if Goriona was damaged too quickly during the transition to Stage Two.


  • Toy Box
    • Fruit Basket should no longer incorrectly have a chance to trigger trinket effects.


  • Checkered Flag‘s mount speed bonus no longer works while inside of an instance such as dungeons, raids, Arenas, or Battlegrounds.
