Latest hotfixes nerf Mythic Kil’jaeden and more

kil'jaeden tomb of sargeras

Looks like Mythic Tomb of Sargeras just got a little easier to accomplish…but only a little. In the latest round of hotfixes, both The Fallen Avatar and Kil’jaeden encounters received a 5% reduction to health. In addition, several of the abilities in the Kil’jaeden encounter got some gentle nerfs as well. Armageddon now creates six Armageddon Rains, down from eight, and Illidan’s Sightless Gaze now deals less damage in all difficulties.

If PVP is more your speed, more tuning changes have been released. Druids, Hunters, Mages, Priests, Shaman, and Warlocks have all been touched on. For Hunters, the only notable change is that Survival Hunters can now correctly use Muzzle to interrupt Holy Priests with Greater Fade active. For all other classes, it’s a grab bag of buffs and nerfs — Affliction and Destruction Warlocks have some flat PVP Template buffs to look forward to, while Frost Mages have had a couple of ability effects reduced.

While the Raid changes are immediate, Class, Raid, Item, and PVP hotfixes won’t go live until maintenance in each region. Read on for the full list of hotfixes.
