Latest WoW hotfixes address Mythic Fallen Avatar and more

Another round of WoW hotfixes has been released, just in time for the weekend. Today’s list includes several bug fixes, including a round for Druids, Mages, Priest, and Shaman. Druids using Glyph of Stars should now be seeing the new casting animations for both Sunfire and Moonfire, while Discipline Priests are losing their mid-air shuffle when combining Levitate and Light’s Wrath.

For raiders hitting up the Tomb of Sargeras on Mythic difficulty, things got just a little easier. The Fallen Avatar encounter received a few gentle nerfs to Mythic difficulty, including reduced damage and reduced fissures from Touch of Sargeras. And scribes may want to make a note, Technique: Glyph of Fel-Touch Shards is temporarily no longer dropping from Inquisitor Vethroz due to a bug. Read on for the full list of hotfixes.
