More Antorus tweaks in latest WoW hotfixes

Blizzard has released another short list of hotfixes for World of Warcraft today, including a Demon Hunter fix. Vengeance Demon Hunters should now be correctly generating Pain when damaged by certain abilities. In addition, there’s some more adjustments and fixes to the Antorus raid as well.

In the Hounds of Sargeras encounter, an issue that caused multiple tank-spec characters to pick up Shadowtouched or Flametouched simultaneously has been resolved. And for players working on Mythic Varimathras, his health has been lowered by 10%. Please note, however, that the health reduction kicks in with server restarts in each region. Hopefully, the change should make it at least a little easier for guilds that have been hammering their heads against this particular encounter… although it looks like clever players will no longer be able to avoid Necrotic Embrace with Aspect of the Turtle or Cloak of Shadows. Okay, maybe he won’t be that easy. Read on for the full list of hotfixes.
