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 biggest fix so far may be one that was hotfixed before the hotfixes: a bug with Trilliax that caused beam animations not to match the direction of the beam. As you can imagine, it caused more than a few raid wipes.

Trilliax aside, for a complete list of the hotfixes, you can check the official site, or just keep reading.

  • Completing World Quests that award reputation should again bring you across the threshold from Revered to Exalted.
  • Gryphons should be easier to shoot during “The Splintered Fleet”.
  • Players should now be able to turn in “The Final Judgement” after completing it.


  • Players who die in Xylem’s Tower or the surrounding area are now placed at the closer tower graveyard.

It’s not surprising that we’d see a few bugs in a new patch, but I am surprised that the Ahead of the Curve achievement for Gul’dan needed one. There will probably be more in the days to come, I’d expect.
