Latest WoW hotfixes include Mythic Kil’jaeden nerfs and more

The latest hotfixes for World of Warcraft seem to be less bug fixes and more raid nerfs for the Tomb of Sargeras. The Kil’jaeden encounter in particular has been hit with several adjustments. Armageddon Rain damage  — both over time and impact — has been reduced by 15% in both Heroic and Mythic difficulties. Erupting Reflection’s health has been reduced by 20% in Mythic difficulty. Flaming Orb time to minimize size has been reduced to 6 sections in both Heroic and Mythic difficulties. Focused Dreadflame’s damage has been reduced to 12 million in Mythic difficulty, while Illidan’s Sightless Gaze damage has been reduced by 20% in all difficulties.

Given the amount of Antorus testing on the PTR, the nerfs aren’t exactly unexpected. Players that have yet to complete Mythic raid achievements in Tomb of Sargeras may find it a little easier to do so before moving on. And speaking of achievements, the Power Ascended achievement no longer requires the quest A Gift from the Six. Although the associated Kirin Tor light show might be pretty, it’s apparently obsolete now. Read on for the full list of hotfixes below.
