Seat of the Triumvirate gets extensive nerfs in latest WoW hotfixes

Seat of the Triumvirate is getting some pretty hefty nerfs, both in Heroic and Mythic difficulty, which should be pretty welcome to anyone who may have been tricked by their friends into doing a +17 key for the dungeon. Okay, that someone is me, but I bet it won’t be unwelcome to others who have had the pleasure of attempting Mythic+ keys there. The nerfs all affect certain abilities that seemed rather overtuned, as opposed to generic boss and health nerfs that we usually see. Every boss in the dungeon sees a nerf to an ability or two of some sort, as do a lot of the trash mob abilities. They aren’t small nerfs either, with most of the ability damage being reduced by 20-30% and entire seconds being taken off cast times or stun durations.

There are a variety of other changes as well, including some Stamina buffs for Vengeance Demon Hunters and Protection Paladins, as well as small bug fixes for Shadow Priests and Fury Warriors. Most important of all, the Horse Tail Costume from this year’s Hallow’s End has been blessed with an actual tail.

Check out the full hotfixes below.
