Hunter taming hotfix in testing and more with latest WoW hotfixes

If you play a Hunter, chances are you’re really going to like the current hotfix in testing. If it works correctly, Tame Beast will no longer trigger trinket procs. Tame Beast is currently considered a spell, which means trinkets that have a chance of damaging on spellcast have a chance of proccing and murdering your pet-to-be.

Needless to say this is frustrating, especially in cases where you’ve found an elusive rare. There’s nothing worse than spending countless hours waiting for a spawn, only to have your trinket accidentally kill the pet while you’re taming it. Again, this is currently a hotfix in testing — but boy is it ever a welcome change.

That’s not the only thing on the latest and admittedly short list of hotfixes, however. An issue in Throne of Thunder and an issue in Antorus have both been resolved. On top of that, Pantheon’s Blessing will now stack instead of taking up valuable bag space. Read on for the full list of hotfixes.
