December 6 Edit

  • Class
    • Demon Hunter
      • Fixed a bug that sometimes allowed the leech from Soul Rending to persist after Metamorphosis ended.
    • Hunter
      • Freezing Trap will no longer cause the target's next cast to fail in certain cases.
    • Mage
      • Ice Block's cooldown will correctly reset at the end of an encounter.
    • Priest
      • You can now activate and deactivate Shadowform while mounted.
  • Class Halls
    • Players who were unable to submit Artifact Knowledge Work Orders should now be able to again.
  • Dungeons and Raids
    Players in a dungeon during a server shutdown should no longer receive the Deserter debuff.
    • Throne of Tides
      • Fixed a bug that was causing Mindbender Ghur’sha to be non-interactable.
    • Trial of Valor
      • The Patient Zero achievement should now be obtainable, as intended.
    • Guarm
      • Increased the radius of Guarm's Multi-Headed from 8 yards to 30 yards on Mythic difficulty.
      • Decreased Guarm's health by 5% on Mythic difficulty.
        Developers’ Notes: The Mythic difficulty change to the Multi-Headed mechanic is intended to require the use of 2 tanks on the encounter. We also slightly reduced Guarm’s health alongside this change in order to minimize the effect on groups that were accustomed to only using 1 tank. This is already active in the NA/ANZ region, and will take effect in other regions with their weekly restarts.
    • Helya
      • The magnitude of Corrupted Axion's healing absorb now properly scales down as the size of a raid decreases from 30 players to 10 players.
      • Resolved an issue that would cause Fetid Rot from targeting more players than intended on non-Mythic difficulties.
      • Reduced the health of several enemies in the Helya encounter on Normal and Heroic difficulties.
      • On non-Mythic difficulties, Adjusted Orb of Corrosion no longer targets Helya's tank targets, similar to its behavior in Mythic difficulty.
    • Odyn
      • Fixed an issue that could cause Odyn to sometimes cast a lethal Unerring Blast during the final phase of the encounter.
  • Items
    • Many trinkets available from Timewalking holiday dungeons and vendors have had their effects adjusted to more closely match the power level of Legion trinkets.
  • Player versus Player
    • Mass Invisibility can no longer be cast on allies holding battleground flags and orbs.

November Edit

November 29 Edit

  • Class
    • Druid
      • Lifebloom should no longer lose its final instant heal effect after having its duration extended by Swiftmend while using the legendary wrist item Edraith, Bonds of Aglaya.
    • Priest
      • Fixed an issue where Dispersion, Void Torrent, and Swirling Void Potion were not always pausing Insanity generation.
    • Shaman
      • Corrected an issue that could cause Elemental Shamans to experience an indefinite visual alert when they have maximum Maelstrom.
  • Dungeons
    • Darkheart Thicket
      • Shade of Xavius
        • Induced Paranoia and Nightmare Bolt now ignore line of sight.

    • Many different kinds of feasts can be placed and used inside of PvP instances.
  • Paladin
    • Pure of Heart will no longer trigger the Cleanse Toxins cooldown.
    • Pure of Heart can no longer be triggered on periodic heal ticks, only the periodic heal’s initial cast.
    • Pure of Heart no longer triggers of Aura of Mercy.
  • Quests
    • On the afternoon of Sunday, November 27, to alleviate an issue where too few Kirin Tor World Quests were available to allow for reliable completion of the Kirin Tor Emissary quest, we hotfixed that Emissary quest to autocomplete on login. This was a stopgap measure while we work on a proper fix to the underlying issue; we intend for future occurrences of the Kirin Tor Emissary quest to work as expected, like other Emissary quests.
    • The door leading to Furog the Elfbreaker's chamber in the Withered Army Training scenario should now open more reliably.

November 22 Edit

  • Class
    • Death Knight
      • Purgatory should now work in the Withered Army Training scenario.
    • Hunter
      • Bursting Shot's disorient effect should no longer hit targets out of line of sight.
    • Paladin
      • Divine Hammer’s cooldown, global cooldown, period, and duration are all correctly modified by Haste.
  • Dungeons and Raids
    • Trial of Valor

      • Helya
        • Resolved an issue which caused chain and cleave effects to not target enemies that were near Helya.
        • Resolved an issue that could cause the Fury of the Maw movement effect to apply to players even after the wave has passed over them.
        • Helya will now instantly perform her breath attacks if its target dies during the cast, rather than failing to use the ability.
        • (Mythic Difficulty) Resolved an issue where Corrupted Breath would target the highest threat tank as opposed to player who is currently tanking the boss.
  • Items
    • Soul Inhaler and Gin-Ji Knife Set may no longer be used in raid instances.
  • NPCs
    • Gobo the Angler Mangler should now respawn and mangle anglers more frequently.
    • The Soultakers should no longer spawn one at a time. They should now always spawn as a group, and should now properly share health.
  • Pet Battles
    • Fixed a crash that could sometimes occur when starting a pet battle with Algalon the Observer.
  • Player versus Player
    • Seaforium Bomb and Huge Seaforium Bomb can be placed and deal siege damage in Isle of Conquest, as intended.
    • The chance of receiving multiple cloaks from PvP has been reduced.
  • Warlock
    • Rot and Decay now works correctly with Drain Soul and Drain Life.
  • Professions
    • Trial of Valor Vantus Rune buffs are no longer removed when the player zones into a PvP or Timewalking instance.
  • Quests
    • Demon Hunters that perform a faction change immediately after exiting Mardum will now have their next quest granted to them on login.
    • Players are now able to complete “Survey the City”.
    • There should be more Withered to wrangle in Ambervale for “Withered Wrangling: Ambervale”.

November 16 Edit

  • Class
    • Mage
      • Displacement should now work for mages who know Arcane Momentum.
    • Rogue
      • Weaponmaster no longer causes Goremaw's Bite to deal excessive damage when it activates.
    • Shaman
      • Pristine Proto-Scale Girdle buffs are no longer shared among multiple Shaman.
  • Dungeons
    • Return to Karazhan
      • Grouped players can now loot Little Red's Cape for "High Stress Hiatus".
    • Trial of Valor
      • There is now a portal to return to the start of the instance in Haustvald, and Odyn will teleport players out of the instance after Helya is defeated.
        • Helya
          • The difficulty of several aspects of the Helya encounter have been decreased on Raid Finder difficulty.
          • Resolved an issue where sometimes Bilewater Breath would cast while Helya is submerging.
  • Quests
    • Warriors on "Capturing the Gateway" who aren’t seeing the required missions should return to their Class Hall, abandon the quest, and then re-accept it from Odyn. You will receive credit for missions you already completed and the remaining missions will now be available.
    • The Burning Crusade quest "Blessing of Incineratus" can now be completed.

November 15 Edit

  • Class
    • Priest
      • Borrowed Time and Muze’s Unwavering Will (legendary wrist item) now properly reduce the global cooldown of Smite, in addition to Smite’s cast time.
    • Warlock
      • The Warlock Glyph of the Observer should now summon an Observer that knows Devour Magic.
  • Dungeons
    The weekly Grand Challenger’s Bounty now contains Item Level 885+ rewards for players who cleared a Mythic Keystone Level 12 or higher dungeon the prior week.
    • Return to Karazhan
      • Burning Bones should no longer sometimes inflict damage to the tank instead of the player with the debuff.
  • Player versus Player
    • End-of-match rewards from Rated Arenas and Rated Battlegrounds now get increased item level based on your current rating in that bracket, instead of your current item level.
      Developers’ Notes: While the Weekly Quests for each bracket were giving rewards based on rating, the rewards given at the conclusion of a Rated Arena or Rated Battleground weren’t aligned with the challenge involved in earning a high rating. This change makes winning high-rated Arena or Rated Battleground matches more analogous to running repeated high-level Mythic Keystone dungeons.
    • Rated Battleground wins no longer have a guaranteed chance to reward an item.
      Developers’ Notes: RBG wins would’ve been far too lucrative. We’re lowering the base chance of receiving an item, but also applying some aggressive bad luck protection. While you won’t earn an item from every single RBG win any more, they’ll still be very common, and far more valuable at higher ratings.

November 14 Edit

  • Class
    • Death Knight
      • (Blood) The Hungering Maw now increases the player's Armor by 10%, then increases by 1% for every additional point put into the Infinite Progression Artifact Trait.
    • Druid
      • (Restoration) The legendary item Aman'Thul's Wisdom should now work correctly with Rejuvenation and Germination when cast on other players.
    • Hunter
      • (Beast Mastery) Spiritbound now increases the player's damage, Hati's damage, and the player's pet damage by 5%, then increases by 0.5% for every additional point put into the Infinite Progression Artifact Trait.
    • Paladin
      • The damage from Greater Blessing of Might will no longer be increased twice by some debuffs on the target.
    • Priest
      • (Discipline) Forbidden Flame now increases the player's damage and healing by 4%, then increases by 0.4% for every additional point into the Infinite Progression Artifact Trait.
      • Shadow: Voidform’s Insanity drain now begins at 8 Insanity per second (down from 9), but will increase at a 10% faster rate
        Developers’ Notes: We want to reduce the maximum amount of time that Surrender to Madness can be maintained, without significantly impacting Shadow otherwise. Our intent in this hotfix is that it’s still effective to use Surrender similarly to how it is currently used, but that its maximum potential in ideal situations is slightly less extreme.
    • Warlock
      • Sweet Souls should no longer completely heal the Warlock when an ally uses a healthstone.
  • Dungeons
    • Hellfire Citadel
      • LFR Queuing for Archimonde’s Fall at the Black Gate now has Anetheron, Azgalor, Kaz’rogal, and Archimonde spawned once the queue pops.
    • Return to Karazhan
      • Fixed an issue which could cause Galindre to not reset properly on a failed attempt.
    • Trial of Valor
      • Helya
        • Anchor Slam should now inflict less damage to secondary targets on Normal difficulty.
        • Resolved an issue where Fury of the Maw would do drastically more damage than intended on targets recently wounded by an Orb of Corrosion.
  • Items
    • All Legion Legendary items have had their item level increased by 15. This change will be applied retroactively.
    • All items from the Trial of Valor have had their base item level increased by 5. This change will be applied retroactively.
    • The damage from the equip effect of Choker of Barbed Reins should scale down in Timewalking dungeons.
  • Player versus Player
    • Death Knight
      • (Frost) Strength reduced by 10%.
      • (Blood) Blood Boil now deals full damage in PvP (was reduced).
        Developers’ Notes: Frost Death Knight damage continues to be higher than we’d like following the changes in Patch 7.1. For Blood, we no longer feel the damage reduction on Blood Boil is necessary. We plan to make a broader set of changes for them (and other tanks) in Patch 7.1.5.
    • Druid
      • (Feral) Rake now deals 20% less damage to players.
        Developers’ Notes: We like that Feral Druids can apply a lot of spread pressure through their bleeds, but Rake’s damage feels out of line.
    • Mage
      • (Fire) Intellect increased by 10%.
        Developers’ Notes: Fire Mages have simply fallen behind in terms of damage output, and we felt they needed an increase.
    • Paladin
      • (Holy) Mana regeneration has been reduced.
      • (Holy) Avenging Crusader now costs 110,000 mana.
        Developers’ Notes: Holy Paladins are too mana efficient in current PvP gameplay. We’re reducing their overall regeneration, as well as adding a mana cost to Avenging Crusader, since it was essentially mana-free healing.
    • Rogue
      • Feint reduces damage taken from player cast area-of-effect spells by 30% (was 50%).
      • (All specs) Stamina has been increased by 5%.
        Developers’ Notes: Feint’s AoE damage reduction is intended to protect Rogues during dungeon and raid encounters, but many class abilities that feel like single target spells in PvP are treated as AoE effects (e.g. Lunar Strike, Ice Nova). This makes Rogues unintentionally resistant to those abilities. We’re reducing Feint’s AoE damage reduction in PvP, but increasing Stamina to compensate.
    • Shaman
      • (Elemental) Stormkeeper now increases damage of Lightning Bolt, Chain Lightning, and Lava Beam by 100% against players (was 200%)
      • (Elemental) Intellect increased by 5%.
        Developers' Notes: Stormkeeper is at the center of a combination of cooldowns and procs that can cause extraordinarily high damage in a very short time. We're reducing its impact but increasing Elemental's damage overall to compensate.
    • Warlock
      • (Affliction) Unstable Affliction's dispel damage has been doubled.
      • (Destruction) Chaos Bolt now deal an additional 35% damage against players (was 20%).
        Developers’ Notes: Patch 7.1 changed the design of Unstable Affliction, and our initial tuning on the dispel damage was simply too low. For Destruction, we want spending Soul Shards on Chaos Bolt to feel rewarding when weighed against the alternatives.
  • Quests
    • The weekly event quest “The Very Best” should no longer be cleared from the quest log when logging in on a low-level character.
    • Kirin Tor world quests can now appear when the Kirin Tor emissary is not active.
  • Sound
    • Players no longer receive any sound following the Quick Join notifications when friends or guild members queue.

November 8 Edit

  • Class
    • Hunter
      • Bursting Shot should no longer hit enemies far above or below the player when used with Magnetized Blasting Cap Launcher.
    • Priest
      • The Holy Priest artifact trait Say Your Prayers should now function correctly, and gives Prayer of a Mending a 6% chance per rank to not consume a count when it jumps.
    • Warlock
      • Wild Imps summoned by Improved Dreadstalkers will now properly, continuously cast Fel Bolt.
  • Dungeons
    • Completing a Mythic Keystone dungeon on level 11 or higher will now reward base item level 870 loot at the end of the run (was 865).
  • Pet Battles
    • Players will no longer lose their Celestial Invitation upon starting the quest "A Celestial Invitation."
  • PvP
    • Additional vendor food and drink items have been re-enabled for use in battlegrounds and Ashran.
    • The Patron of War achievement should once again show properly.
  • Battlegrounds
    • Artifact Power rewards for the losing side have been increased.
  • Quests
    • The quest rewards from "Soul Prism of the Illidari" and "The Once and Future Lord of Shadows", now have a base 870 item level.
    • Resolved an issue where “WANTED: Nameless King” and “WANTED: Kiranys Duskwhisper” would sometimes not grant quest credit.
    • Rockback Gnashers are no longer despawned by “Neltharion’s Lair: Mother of Stone”.
    • When using the Leave Vehicle button during “The Day that Deathwing Came: The Real Story”, the player is returned to their normal size.
    • The Fal'dorei Silkwitch in the “Building an Army” Withered Scenario should now more reliably open the door to the next room when it dies.
    • Resolved an issue in which “WANTED: Dreadbog” and “DANGER: Ealdis” would not properly grant the World Quest if the quest NPCs were near each other.
    • Resolved an issue in which “WANTED: Warbringer Mox'na” and “DANGER: Stormfeather” would not properly grant the World Quest if the quest NPCs were near each other.
    • Archaeology: Highborne Archaeology Fragments can now be looted for the quest "Explosive Results".
  • Travel
    • (IN TESTING) Underwater-only mounts now move faster.

November 3 Edit

  • Dungeons
    • Experience rewarded from queuing for "Random Legion Dungeon" (Normal difficulty) has been increased by 150%.
    • Maw of Souls
      • On Mythic Keystone difficulty, the portal to Stormheim should no longer be covered up by the Challenger's Cache.
    • Return to Karazhan
      • Players who may have missed the final turn-in to Khadgar inside of the Return to Karazhan dungeon are now able to turn in “Fragments of the Past” and “In the Eye of the Beholder” to Khadgar outside of Karazhan.
      • "In the Eye of the Beholder" and "The Tower of Power" should no longer fail to give players credit when defeating the final boss.
      • (REQUIRES RESTARTS) When returning to a partially-cleared Karazhan, the bosses and associated minions that had previously been defeated by the party leader should now properly be absent, and other players with different boss lockouts should be able to join without issue.
  • Items
    • Players can now see and track their weekly and maximum cap of Lingering Soul Fragments in the Currency pane.
    • Hidden Artifact appearances that drop from World Bosses should now be guaranteed on a kill, when all preceding requirements are met.

    • The Creeping Tentacle battle pet will now correctly drop on all difficulties of the Yogg-Saron encounter.
    • "Clone"-type abilities on Blood Boil, Bloodgazer Hatchling, and the 2016 BlizzCon pets have been exchanged for other abilities.
  • Professions
    • Alchemy

      • Mage
        • Ice Form now has a 60 second cooldown.
  • Quests
    • Some unintentionally hidden World Quests in Suramar have been re-activated, including World Quests that are new to Patch 7.1.
    • Lingering Soul Fragments for the quest "Soul Prism of the Illidari" should now be guaranteed to drop from Heroic dungeon end bosses.

November 1 Edit

  • Classes
    • Paladin
      • Silencing an enemy with Avenger’s Shield now activates Sephuz’s Secret.
    • Rogue
      • Insignia of Ravenholdt should no longer damage enemies who are out of the Rogue’s line of sight.
      • Insignia of Ravenholdt should no longer damage enemies who are vertically much higher or lower than the Rogue.
  • Class Halls
    • You should no longer see a new dungeon mission if you are currently on a mission-related quest to clear a dungeon. This does not apply to the Karazhan mission.
  • Dungeons and Raids
    • Maw of Souls.
      • Resolved an issue where Kvaldir Cage would remain stuck on a player.
  • Items
    • Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus should no longer reset the swing timer.
  • Player versus Player
    • Class Adjustments
      • Death Knight
        • (Frost) Strength in PvP has been reduced by 10%.
          Developers’ Notes: A number of bug fixes and class tuning adjustments have pushed Frost damage too high.
        • (Unholy) Apocalypse damage is no longer reduced in PvP.
          Developers’ Notes: We no longer feel that a reduction is necessary.
      • Demon Hunter
        • (Havoc) Agility increased by 5%.
        • (Havoc) Stamina increased by 10%.
          Developers’ Notes: With time, players have become more accustomed to Demon Hunters and how to counter them. This should bring back their damage and general survivability to help them compete.
      • Hunter
        • Survival) Stamina has been increased by 15%.
      • Mage
        • (Frost) Intellect has been reduced by 10%.
      • Monk
        • (Windwalker) Agility has been reduced by 10%.
        • (Windwalker) Heavy-Handed Strikes now causes Fists of Fury to only stun when cast (was with each tick of Fists of Fury).
        • (Windwalker) Serenity now increases damage by 25% with the Spiritual Focus artifact trait (was +30%).
          Developers’ Notes: Windwalkers are able to maintain an extremely high uptime against their targets in PvP, and their raw damage capability was just too high for a spec that’s so difficult to get away from.
      • Shaman
        • Forked Lightning will no longer ignore line of sight.
        • Forked Lightning will no longer strike dead targets.
        • Lava Burst now deals full damage in PvP (was doing 80% of normal damage).

        • (Arms) Strength and Stamina increased by 10%.
        • (Fury) Strength and Stamina increased by 10%.
          Developers’ Notes: Patch 7.1 put Hamstring back on the global cooldown, and while we still feel that that’s the correct choice for that ability, we understand that this change had a major impact on PvP Warriors’ damage rotation, as well as Hamstring’s overall uptime. To compensate, we’ve increased Hamstring’s duration so that it needs to be applied less frequently, and massively increased its damage to help make it feel worthwhile to use.
      • Warlock
        • (Destruction) Entrenched in Flame duration reduced to 3 seconds (was 4 seconds).
        • (Destruction) Focused Chaos now increases Chaos Bolt damage by an additional 100% (was 150%).
        • (Destruction) Shadowburn now deals 20% less damage in PvP.
          Developers’ Notes: 7.1 introduced some new talents to Destruction Warlocks to increase their control and incentivize the use of cast time spells like Chaos Bolt. These talents were overtuned initially, but we want to keep Chaos Bolt as the best damage value for a Soul Shard.

           Counterstrike Totem (honor talent) now obeys line of sight.

Quests

   Players are no longer able to start the quest chain that starts with "Fate of the Guard" and leads to the quest "Last Stand of the Moon Guard" until after completing "Shal'Aran".
   The kill requirement for "Cry More Thunder!" has been reduced to 50 (was 150).
   The “Power of Corruption” quest item Essence of Wyrmtongue no longer allows players to attack members of their own faction. Tricksy demons!
World
   The Battle for Shattrath is working again.
   Golden Eaglets, Tiny Apparitions, and Rose Taipans now spawn more frequently.
   Wildlife have migrated away from the Ashamane's Fall graveyard in Val'sharah.

Items

   The legendary Rogue ring Insignia of Ravenholdt should now be able to hit creatures with large hitboxes.
   The legendary Warlock belt Power Cord of Lethtendris should no longer incorrectly have a chance to be activated by targets that already have Unstable Affliction.

PvP

Honor Talents

Druid

   Thorns now has a 1 second cooldown between procs.

Quests

   Killing the Waking Nightmare first during quest, "Waking Nightmares" will no longer prevent players from seeing Slumbering Nightmare.

October 25 Edit

Bonus Event

   Completing a dungeon on any Mythic Keystone difficulty will now count towards progress on the weekly Bonus Event quest, "Emissary of War".

Classes

Druid

   Luffa Wrappings should once again function correctly for non-Feral Druids.
   Prowl should once again have the correct stealth effectiveness.
   Mass Entanglement should now reliably chain to nearby targets.

Paladin

   (Retribution) Fixed a bug preventing the Sword of Light passive from being fully calculated into baseline damage.

Shaman

   (Restoration) Lava Burst should correctly deal a critical strike against targets with Flame Shock, at level 20 or higher.

Warrior

   (Arms) Fixed a bug preventing the Seasoned Soldier passive from being fully calculated into baseline damage.

Dungeons and Raids

   Quest Items related to Karazhan attunement now drop in Mythic Keystone dungeons in addition to Mythic difficulty dungeons.

Game Client

   (Work in progress) Sheathing and unsheathing a weapon should no longer cause the game to crash.

PvP

   Warden Towers temporarily rewarded 150 Honor. They have been convinced to once again reward 300 Honor.
   Honor rewards from Tol Barad have been reduced by 50%.
   Class Adjustments
       Relentless reduces crowd control duration by 20% (was 25%).
           Developers’ Notes: We feel Relentless is over-represented in a lot of situations, so we’re slightly reducing its effect.
       Demon Hunter
           Fixed a bug that was preventing Imprison modified by Detainment from being removed by Divine Shield and Ice Block.
           Fury of the Illidari no longer causes reduced damage in PvP.
       Mage
           (Fire) Stamina reduced by 10% in PvP.
           (Frost) Stamina reduced by 10% in PvP
               Developers’ Notes: Fire and Frost Mages have felt a bit too tanky.
           (Frost) Deep Shatter increases the damage of Frostbolt by 150% (was 200%).
       Monk
           (Mistweaver) Surge of Mist now causes Enveloping Mist to incur an 8 second cooldown (was 6 seconds).
               Developers’ Notes: Mistweavers Monks have often relied on Soothing Mist to do most of their healing. Now, when choosing Surge of Mist, you may have to cast another healing spell during the Enveloping Mists cooldown.
           (Mistweaver) Counteract magic increases the healing of Renewing Mist by 125% (was 150%).
               Developers’ Notes: Counteract Magic has felt a bit too strong against damage-over-time compositions.
       Paladin
           Avenging Crusader now properly increases the cooldown recovery rate of Judgment and Crusader Strike.
           Avenging Crusader no longer increases the cooldown recovery rate of Tyr's Deliverance.
       Priest
           (Discipline) Searing Light increases the damage of Smite by 15%, down from 30%.
               Developers’ Notes: The Discipline Priest is intended to be an offensive healer, but we feel they were over-performing in 2v2 Arena.
       Rogue
           Agility reduced by 10% in PvP.
           Stamina reduced by 5% in PvP.
               Developers’ Notes: Rogues are intended to be strong, yet vulnerable to focused-fire. We feel they have too much survivability while dealing too much damage with both utility and survivability, so we’re toning them down.
           (Assassination) System Shock duration reduced to 2 seconds (was 4 seconds).
           (Subtlety) Stamina reduced by 5% in PvP.
           (Assassination, Outlaw) Stamina reduced by 15% in PvP.
       Shaman
           (Enhancement) Agility reduced by 10%.
       Warlock
           (Demonology) Doom, Doubled now increases the damage of Doom by 33% in PvP situations.
           (Demonology) Grimoire of Synergy increases the Warlock's and Pet's damage by 30% in PvP situations.
           (Demonology) Implosion damage reduced by 20% in PvP situations.
       Warrior
           Bladestorm now deals full damage in PvP situations.
               Developers’ Notes: Bladestorm is intended to be a strong damage cooldown for the Arms Warrior. In Legion Beta testing, Arms Warriors felt too strong, so we reduced the damage Bladestorm did in PvP. We feel we’re back to a place where returning it to full damage makes sense.
           Execute now deals 15% more damage in PvP situations.
               Developers’ Notes: Execute is designed to be a signature strength of the Warrior, and should always be the right choice on targets within Execute range in PvP. We’ve found that there are some situations where that wasn’t true, so we’re increasing the damage of Execute to make it always the right choice.

Quests

   Players should no longer fail to get credit for completing world boss World Quests.
   Players with a full inventory should now be able to complete “Edict of the God-King” and accept “Unwanted Evidence” after defeating God-King Skovald in Halls of Valor.
   The quest drops for “Uncovering Orders” should now come from the final boss in each of the three named dungeons, Assault on Violet Hold, Black Rook Hold, and Vault of the Wardens.

World

   Bloodgazer Falcosaurs should now respawn more quickly.

October 19 Edit

Classes

Demon Hunter

   Demon Hunters should now receive a cache (or mount when lucky) from Pandaria world bosses who previously had no items for Demon Hunters.

Paladin

   Blessing of Sanctuary now has a 30 second cooldown.

Dungeons and Raids

Emerald Nightmare

               Cenarius
   Damage immunity such as Divine Shield or Blessing of Protection now prevents damage dealt by Spear of Nightmares.

Il’gynoth

   Rogues will no longer end up inside Il’gynoth’s core when attacking it with Shadowstrike or Killing Spree.

Items

   The effects from Jewelcrafting neck pieces should now scale properly when Timewalking.

Professions

Archaeology

   It should now be easier to obtain Jewels of Aellis for the quest "Sifting Through the Rubble". Angry Highborne Spirits should now have a 100% chance to drop a jewel.

PvP

   Warden Tower captains no longer have a limit on the number of eligible players who can simultaneously tap them.

Quests

   Alliance players are now able to complete "Full Circle" in Vashj'ir.

October 13 Edit

Bonus Events

   Entering a Timewalking Dungeon will no longer clear any planted plants from the Druid Evergreen upgrade.
   The fireballs from the cooking buff "Pepper Breath" should now scale properly in Timewalking.
   Class Hall Set 6-piece and 8-piece bonuses should now scale properly in Timewalking.

Classes

Druid

   Ironfur no longer incorrectly multiplies Bonus Armor effects from temporary buffs.
   (Balance) New Moon, Half Moon, and Full Moon are now in the Arcane spell school.

Items

   Spirit Cauldrons no longer have collision.

Player versus Player

Reminder: These changes are only active while in PvP combat situations and do not affect PvE. Many more Honor Talent changes are coming with Patch 7.1, including changes to Destruction Warlocks, Windwalker Monks, Death Knights, Balance Druids, and Restoration Druids.

Mage

Frost

   Ice Form now has a 60 second cooldown (was 45 seconds).
   Ice Form can no longer be cast while stunned.
   Ice Form will now cause the Mage to be immune to only stuns, instead of other unintended crowd-control effects, such as Paralysis.
   Frostbolt no longer deals increased damage in PvP (was a multiplier of +10%).
       Developers’ Notes: Frost Mages are intended to create burst windows with Shatter and Glacial Spike, but have been reaching unintended levels of damage. By reducing Frostbolt damage, we’re reducing the potential size of Icicles and Glacial Spike burst. The Ice Form fixes should reduce its uptime, which was too high.

Hunter

Beast Mastery

   Beast Mastery Agility reduced by 10% in PvP.
       Developers’ Notes: We’ve found Beast Mastery damage to be too high, but we don’t feel that it’s due to any specific ability or mechanic, so we’re reducing the overall PvP template.

Monk

Mistweaver

   Mistwalk can no longer be cast while silenced.
   Soothing Mist healing reduced by 10% in PvP. (Soothing Mist version of Ancient Mistweaver Arts is unaffected.)
   Soothing Mist healing cast by Summon Jade Serpent Statue reduced by 10% in PvP.
       Developers’ Notes: Mistweavers been one of our strongest healers. We feel Soothing Mist is doing too much healing per second on its own, making it so that the Mistweaver doesn’t have to use cast-time healing spells as much as other healers, even when their target is taking high amounts of damage. We’re reducing Soothing Mist slightly to address this. Mistwalk was never intended to be used while the Mistweaver was silenced or locked out of Nature, so we’ve fixed that as a bug.

Paladin

   Pure of Heart no longer causes Cleanse to incur a cooldown when it removes poisons and diseases.
   Pure of Heart no longer triggers when healed by a periodic heal effect, but will trigger when a spell such as Rejuvenation is initially cast.
       Developers’ Notes: Retribution Paladins are designed to be a formidable damage dealer and also have a protective, counter-control kit for their allies. Pure of Heart is intended to “soft-counter” poisons and diseases, but we feel it’s too strong currently when the Paladin is paired with a healing-over-time healer. Pure of Heart will now only trigger when a healing spell is applied, but not periodically during the spell.

Retribution

   Blessing of Sanctuary now has a 30 second cooldown, up from 25 seconds.
       Developers’ Notes: Blessing of Sanctuary has proven to be a strong, signature Honor Talent, but we feel its cooldown is too short.

Rogue

Assassination

   System Shock now properly requires an Envenom cast with 5 or more combo points.
   System Shock’s damage has been reduced by 20%.
   Assassination’s Agility has been reduced by 5% in PvP.
       Developers’ Notes: The Assassination Rogue is intended to be a strong, persistent damage dealer that pressures targets but lacks the utility that Outlaw excels in or the mobility that Subtlety provides. We’ve been monitoring their damage and feel its higher than intended, and we’ve found some bugs with System Shock contributed to this. We’ve also altered their PvP template to effectively reduce their damage.

Outlaw

   Control is King will no longer stack Adrenaline Rush above a 3 second duration.
       Developers’ Notes: Control is King is intended to be an attractive choice for the Outlaw Rogue when within a control oriented team composition. This has worked out a bit too well. Now, subsequent procs of Control of King will no longer add to the duration, and instead will just refresh itself.

Shaman

Enhancement

   Stormstrike’s damage is reduced by 15% in PvP.
   Heroism and Bloodlust now have a 60 second cooldown when modified by Shamanism (was 45 seconds).
       Developers’ Notes: The Enhancement Shaman is intended to be a formidable damage dealer who also provides offensive group utility through totems and buffs. Shamanism has been a popular choice for the Enhancement Shaman, allowing them to use Bloodlust/Heroism frequently and also in Arena combat. We like the utility this gives the Shaman, but feel its uptime is too high. Further, we feel the Enhancement Shaman’s burst damage with Stormstrike has been reaching unintended levels.

October 12 Edit

Class Halls

   General and LocalDefense chat channels are now functioning properly in the Shaman Class Hall.

Dungeons and Raids

   In Mythic Keystone dungeons, Shadow Priests who die due to Surrender to Madness expiring should no longer incur a 5 second time penalty.
   Emerald Nightmare
        Heart of Corruption
           On Mythic difficulty, the Corruptor Tentacle that previously spawned at 225 seconds into the fight now spawns at 235 seconds, and the Deathglare Tentacle that previously spawned at 240 seconds into the fight now spawns at 250 seconds.

Items

   Items rewarded from emissary bags now more closely match the quality of World Quest rewards.
   The Spear of Rethu polearm now scales properly from character level 1 to 100, now properly appears in the heirloom list, and is now correctly a 2-handed weapon.

Quests

    Oculeth no longer disappears after completing the quest "Arcan'dor, Gift of the Ancient Magi."

October 6 Edit

Classes

   Warlock
       (Destruction) Dimensional Rift will no longer spawn portals that are out of range to do damage to your target.

Mythic Keystone Dungeons

   The amount of Artifact Power rewarded from end-of-run Mythic Keystone chests now increases with the Level of the Mythic Keystone Dungeon.
   When beating a Mythic Keystone timer by a margin so significant that your Keystone is upgraded by more than one step, you will earn multiple loot chests as before, however, the additional chests beyond the first will no longer contain Artifact Power.
       Developers’ Notes: These changes are aimed at aligning the efficiency of the different tiers of difficulty, so that a well-geared group of dungeon experts is rewarded more for tackling a high-level Mythic dungeon, rather than incentivized to stomp an entry-level dungeon.

Items

   The Archaeology World Quest heirloom reward Spear of Rethu should now be item level 700, as intended (was item level 605).

October 5 Edit

Classes

   Druid
       Moonkin Aura can no longer stack on targets.
   Paladin
       Steed of Glory now properly makes the Paladin immune to stun effects.
   Shaman
       Spirit Link Totem should no longer be damaged by Druids’ Rage of the Sleeper or Brambles.
   Warrior
       (Protection) Fixed a bug where Vengeance could cause Ignore Pain to consume less Rage than intended, but absorb for more.

Class Halls

   The cooldown for all Class Hall abilities which allow you to instantly complete a World Quest has been reduced from 3 days to 18 hours, and the time taken to complete the work order for the item used by these abilities has been reduced to 10 minutes.
   Fixed an issue that sometimes hid the barrier blocking the Feralas Portal in the Emerald Dreamway for Druids who have previously sealed it.
   Priest dungeon quests from missions will now be turned in to Moira Thaurissan, rather than Alonus Faol, who sometimes has other things to do.

Dungeons and Raids

   The Arcway
       Forgotten Spirits will no longer respawn in The Arcway.
       Timeless Wraiths will no longer attack players before they've been Banished In Time.
   Halls of Valor
       When Olmyr the Enlightened or Solsten are engaged, the door to Hyrja's room will shut while they are in combat.

PvP

   Druid
       Fury of Elune can no longer be cast during Arena and Battleground preparation.
   Demon Hunter
       Demon Hunters now start arenas with 0 Pain and Fury.
   Rogue
       Shadowy Duel now prevents you from assaulting bases in Domination battlegrounds such as Arathi Basin.
   Shaman
       Fury of Air can no longer be cast during Arena and Battleground preparation.

Quests

   High-level players should now be eligible for the "Trial of Faith" scenario during the Garrison Campaign.
   In the Withered Army Training scenario, it should be less likely for Leystalker Dro to be hiding somewhere that he wouldn't normally be encountered by clearing the room.
   Enigmatic puzzles should no longer become non-responsive when a large number of players try to do the same Enigmatic World Quest puzzle.

October 3 Edit

Classes

   Mage
       Splitting Ice should now cause Glacial Spike to damage the secondary target for 80% of the damage dealt to the primary target, as intended.
   Monk
       Stagger now delays 40% of damage taken (was 35%), and now quickly fades after leaving combat.
   Shaman
       (Restoration) The Artifact trait Tidal Pools will now correctly heal all areas when multiple Tidal Pools are active at once.
   Warlock
       Shadowflame's damage over time can now critically strike.
   Warrior
       Shield Slam now generates 20 Rage (was 10).
       Ignore Pain’s maximum absorption has been reduced by 33%.
       Inspiring Presence no longer stacks on players who have multiple Warriors present.

Dungeons and Raids

(All dungeon and raid hotfixes will take effect with realm restarts in each region.)

   Black Rook Hold
       Mythic Keystone target time increased to 38 minutes (was 35 minutes).
   Eye of Azshara
       Mythic Keystone target time decreased to 35 minutes (was 36 minutes).
   Maw of Souls
       Mythic Keystone target time decreased to 24 minutes (was 25 minutes).
   Neltharion’s Lair
       Mythic Keystone target time decreased to 33 minutes (was 35 minutes).
   Emerald Nightmare
       Vantus Runes can now be used in Mythic Emerald Nightmare.
       Il’gynoth
           On Mythic difficulty, Il’gynoth’s health has been increased by 200%, but loses one-third of that value each time the Eye of Il’gynoth is defeated.
           On Mythic difficulty, each Nightmare Explosion now deals 20% more damage to the Eye of Il’gynoth.
               Developers’ Notes: A common strategy for Mythic Il’gynoth involved using raid compositions that focus on maximizing burst damage to complete the encounter in a single phase. This approach removes huge portions of the encounter and can overly favor a specific set of classes and specializations, causing negative social pressures in groups that have yet to reach this encounter. These changes ensure that raid groups must enter Il’gynoth’s core twice in order to complete the encounter on Mythic difficulty, but offset that change by speeding up the process of destroying the Eye to shorten the overall length of the encounter.

Professions

   Enchanting
       Crafted items that upgrade to epic quality should now disenchant into Leylight Shards or Chaos Crystals.

PvP

   Shaman Totems will no longer take unintended extra damage from players.

Quests

   Players are now able to turn in "Ritual Ruination" to Calydus in Dreadscar Rift if they don’t take the portal out of the scenario.

   Neltharion’s Lair
       Mythic Keystone target time decreased to 33 minutes (was 35 minutes).
   Emerald Nightmare
       Vantus Runes can now be used in Mythic Emerald Nightmare.
       Il’gynoth
           On Mythic difficulty, Il’gynoth’s health has been increased by 200%, but loses one-third of that value each time the Eye of Il’gynoth is defeated.
           On Mythic difficulty, each Nightmare Explosion now deals 20% more damage to the Eye of Il’gynoth.
               Developers’ Notes: A common strategy for Mythic Il’gynoth involved using raid compositions that focus on maximizing burst damage to complete the encounter in a single phase.

September Edit

September 30 Edit

Legion Companion App

   Fixed a bug in iOS 10 that caused notification badge numbers to not clear.
   The Login button now goes to your character list when possible.
   The Account Selection button starts a new login with Battle.net.
   The World Quest icon now shows additional info when using a filter.
   Fixed a bug that sometimes made it appear that a 100%+ mission failed.

Classes

   Warlock
       Unstable Affliction's dispel kickback damage is now capped at 50% of the Warlock's maximum health, but can still critically strike.
       Destruction Warlocks that are stuck on the final Artifact acquisition quest "Ritual Ruination" should now find it easier to get through all obstacles. Any Warlock that has the Artifact, but is stuck on a quest objective, can return to Dalaran to get full credit for the quest.

Class Halls

   New work orders for Seals of Broken Fate will now have a shipment duration of 5 seconds.

Dungeons and Raids

   Assault on Violet Hold
       The final encounters in Heroic and Mythic Violet Hold should now be properly reflected in your Statistics page upon completion.
   Darkheart Thicket
       (Mythic difficulty) Oakheart should no longer reset once awoken.
   Emerald Nightmare
       Xavius
           Dead players should no longer become stuck if they release their spirit during the teleport to The Emerald Dream after defeating Xavius.

Items

Professions

   Fishing
       Black Barracuda Angling (Rank 3) should now correctly grant a chance to provide an instant pool catch.
       Fish that are instantly caught from the Black Barracuda Angling trait are now selected from fishing pools, rather than open water fishing.
   Herbalism
       The droprate for seeds has been reduced to 2.5% for all herbs, except Felwort, which remains at a 25% chance to loot a seed.

PvP

   Ashran
       All methods of turning in Artifact Fragments should now correctly reward honor at a rate of 1 honor for every 2 Artifact Fragments.
   The Rated PvP gear weekly bonus rewards are now based on the player's PvP Rating for 2v2, 3v3, and Rated Battlegrounds.
       Developers’ Notes: Currently, rated PvP is always rewarding item level 840 gear, regardless of rating. That is not our intent. We want to correct this as quickly as possible, but don’t want to inadvertently punish players who have already collected their weekly bonus chests. This fix will be implemented with the next weekly realm maintenance (A.M. PDT on Tuesday, October 4 for North American realms).
Quests
   These Suramar World Quests now correctly award Nightfallen reputation beyond Honored: “The Shattered Locus”, “Clear the Skies”, “Left for Dead”, and “Fiends of Tel'anor”.
   (Work in progress) Addressed multiple issues with the World Quest "Electrosnack" regarding tapping and some cosmetic elements.
   Players who would have otherwise died to falling damage in the Withered Army Training scenario should now be reduced to 1 hp. First Arcanist Thalyssra will now port you back to the front of the ruins.
   World Quests completed with a Combat Ally will once more correctly award experience to the Follower.

September 28 Edit

Classes

   The ground mount speed bonus from Broken Isles Pathfinder now stacks with the passive class bonuses On a Pale Horse and Heart of Crusader.

Death Knight

   Multiple Unholy Death Knights with the Armies of the Damned artifact trait can now have their Death, Pestilence, and Famine debuffs applied at the time.

       4-pieces: Every time you gather a Healing Sphere, the remaining cooldowns of your Ironskin Brew and Purifying Brew are reduced by 1 second (was 5 seconds).
Rogue
   Shadow Dance should now be useable and should not be cancelled when the Rogue is affected by an enemy Hunter's Flare.

Shaman

   Lava Beam damage increased by 23%.
   (Restoration) The artifact trait Tidal Pools will now correctly heal all areas when multiple Tidal Pools are active at once.

Warlock

   Seed of Corruption will now properly detonate and spread if the target dies while still affected.
   Fixed a bug that sometimes caused Agony to not stack or generate Soul Shards.
   (Demonology) The Artifact ability Thal'kiel's Consumption will no longer sometimes fail to do damage because the target moves out of range.
   (Destruction) The Artifact ability Dimensional Rift will no longer spawn portals that are out of range to do damage to your target.

Class Halls

   Pet Charm missions now provide Pet Charms for both the main reward and the bonus reward.

Dungeons and Raids

   Players should receive bonus roll opportunities more reliably if they are eligible for them.

The Emerald Nightmare

Xavius

   Immunities can no longer remove Darkening Soul or Blackening Soul. Dispelling either effect with an Imp's Singe Magic will give the owning Warlock +25 Nightmare Corruption.

   Shard of the Exodar no longer causes Drums of Fury to unaffected by Exhaustion/Sated effects.

Quests

   During “Leyhollow Infestation”, players now only drop the rock when taking damage or attacking, not when entering combat, and player speed is only reduced by 50% when carrying a rock (was 75% reduced speed).
   Fixed a rare bug that could cause Guardian Druids to not obtain credit for killing Arch-Desecrator Malithar during "When Dreams Become Nightmares".
   Tomes of the Tranquil Mind obtained from "In the Blink of an Eye" are now Bind-on-pickup.

September 26 Edit

Classes

Developer’s Notes: After carefully considering the constructive feedback we’ve received over the weekend, we’ve made some revisions to this week’s tuning. The class changes listed in this hotfix update, as well as those from the previous update will be applied during weekly maintenance in each region. Note that several changes from the previous update have been altered or removed, which is indicated by a strikethrough in the notes below.

Demon Hunter

   Havoc
       Bloodlet (Talent) now deals 150% of initial Throw Glaive damage.

Mage

   Arcane
       Quickening (Talent)’s maximum stacks are now 50, and it will not refresh its duration once at 50 stacks.

Priest

   Shadow
       Mind Sear damage increased by 80% and Insanity generation increased by 50%.
       Mind Flay damage increased by 20%.
       Mind Spike damage increased by 28%.
       Void Ray maximum stacks reduced to 4.
           Developers’ Notes: Given the damage increase to Mind Sear, Mind Flay, and Mind Spike, this still results in an overall increase to the value of the talent.
       Voidform stacks no longer increase while Dispersion is active.
           Developers’ Notes: We would prefer that Surrender to Madness not be as dominant as it is, and that it can’t be extended for quite so long.  However, addressing this further would require significant changes to the spec beyond what we want to do in a tuning pass at this time. We will look for an opportunity to take a more comprehensive look at this issue in a future patch.

Shaman

   Queen Ascendant (Artifact trait) is no longer consumed when a queued healing spell is immediately triggered.

Warlock

   Fixed a bug that prevented Rain of Fire from always doing all 8 ticks of damage on PvE and PvP targets.

Warrior

   Arms
       Tactician proc rate increased by 15%.
       Hamstring no longer procs Tactician.
       Exploit the Weakness (Artifact Trait) bonus reduced to 4% per point.

NPCs

   Suramar NPCs should no longer remove a player’s stealth at the start of their Arcane Investigation casting.
   Interacting with Nomi should now take priority when his area is crowded.

Professions

   Engineering: The Reaves version of the Failure Detection Pylon should now work properly.

PvP

Rogue

   Strike from the Shadows is now a snare, instead of a daze.

September 23 Edit

Achievements

   Broken Isles Pathfinder Rank 1 now properly displays the amount of the mounted speed increase.

Classes

Developers’ Notes: As we discussed last week, we’ve been gathering a massive amount of data based on how each spec has been performing in this first week of raids and Mythic Keystone dungeons, so that we can make a number of tuning changes with next week’s realm maintenance. The overall goal of these changes is to buff up some underperforming specs while also reining in a couple of over-performers, without dramatically changing anyone’s playstyle or causing them to feel as though the spec they chose to focus on became the “wrong choice.”

All of these class changes will be applied during the next scheduled weekly maintenance period in each region. Note that there are also a number of PvP-specific changes, which are noted separately below.

Death Knight

   Frost
       Remorseless Winter damage increased by 50%.
       Obliterate damage increased by 19%.
       Frost Strike damage increased by 12%.
       Howling Blast damage increased by 10%.
       Frostscythe (Talent) damage increased by 13%.
       Frozen Pulse (Talent) damage increased by 11%.
       Breath of Sindragosa (Talent) damage increased by 17%.

Demon Hunter

   Havoc
       Throw Glaive damage reduced by 30%.
       Fel Mastery (Talent) damage bonus to Fel Rush reduced to 30%.
       Bloodlet (Talent) now deals 100% of initial Throw Glaive damage.
       Fury of the Illidari (Artifact Ability) damage reduced by 20%.
           Note: See below for for additional PvP tuning adjustments to Fury of the Illidari.
       Balanced Blades (Artifact Trait) damage bonus to Blade Dance reduced to 3% per target.
   Vengeance
       Mastery now provides 50% less damage reduction per point.
       Demon Spikes damage reduction increased to 20%.
           Note: Gearing heavily for Mastery was allowing Vengeance Demon Hunters to reach excessively high levels of Physical damage reduction. We’re reducing the top-end potential of this effect somewhat, and bringing up the baseline. This should also cause the value of Mastery to be more in line with other stats.

Druid

   Moonfire (non-Feral) damage increased by 10%.
   Balance
       Sunfire damage increased by 10%.
       Starfall damage increased by 10%.
       Lunar Strike damage increased by 5%.
       Solar Wrath damage increased by 5%.

Mage

   Arcane
       Mastery effects increased by 20%.
       Arcane Missiles damage increased by 9%.
       Arcane Blast damage increased by 10%.
   Frost
       Frostbolt damage increased by 8%.
       Ice Lance damage increased by 13%.
       Flurry damage increased by 38%.
       Blizzard damage increased by 36%, and mana cost reduced by 50%.
       Splitting Ice (Talent) now causes 80% of normal damage (up from 50%).
       Ice Nova (Talent) damage increased by 13%.
       Ray of Frost (Talent) damage increased by 28%.
       Glacial Spike (Talent) damage increased by 15%.

Hunter

   Barrage (non-Survival) damage reduced by 20%.
   Beast Mastery
       Bestial Wrath damage bonus increased to 25%.
   Survival
       Flanking Strike damage increased by 62%.

Monk

   Mistweaver
       Spinning Crane Kick (Mistweaver) damage reduced by 25%.

Paladin

   Retribution
       Templar’s Verdict damage increased by 10%.
       Divine Storm damage increased by 20%.
       Crusader Strike (Retribution) damage increased by 13%.
       Blade of Justice damage increased by 13%.
       Judgment (Retribution) damage increased by 13%.
       Zeal (Talent) damage increased by 13%.
       Blade of Wrath (Talent) damage increased by 13%.

Priest

   Holy
       Holy Nova damage reduced by 16%.
   Shadow
       Mind Sear damage and Insanity generation increased by 50%.
       Voidform stacks no longer increase while Dispersion and Void Torrent are active.
           Note: These abilities prevent Insanity drain from increasing while active, which effectively reduces the Insanity drain for the entire remainder the current Voidform. This was proving to be too powerful, so we’re now making sure that the damage bonus and Insanity drain from Voidform remain in sync.
       The benefit of Mass Hysteria (Artifact Trait) is now capped at 100%.
           Note: We want it to be rewarding when you’re able to maintain Surrender to Madness for an extremely long time, but the amount of damage this trait was contributing in those circumstances was excessive.

Rogue

   Death From Above (Talent) area damage increased by 100%.
   Assassination
       Deadly Poison damage increased by 30%.
       Fan of Knives damage increased by 30%.
       Bag of Tricks (Artifact Trait) duration reduced to 3 seconds (overall damage unchanged), radius increased to 6 yards (from 3), and now benefits from Mastery.
       Poison Knives (Artifact Trait) no longer benefits twitch from Mastery. Damage per point increased to 4%.
   Outlaw
       Fatebringer (Artifact Trait) Energy cost reduction reduced to 3 per rank.
       Fate’s Thirst (Artifact Trait) damage bonus to Run Through reduced to 6% per rank.
       Black Powder (Artifact Trait) damage bonus to Between the Eyes reduced to 6% per rank.
   Subtlety
       Eviscerate damage increased by 15%.
       Nightblade damage increased by 15%.
           Note: See below for additional PvP tuning adjustments to Eviscerate and Nightblade.
       Shuriken Storm damage increased by 30%.
       Second Shuriken (Artifact Trait) chance to activate increased to 30% (was 10%), damage increased by 30%, and now deals 200% additional damage while Stealth or Shadow Dance is active.

Shaman

   Elemental
       Mastery effects increased by 12.5%.
       Chain Lightning Maelstrom generation increased to 6.
       Lightning Bolt (Elemental) damage increased by 23%.
       Chain Lightning (Elemental) damage increased by 23%.
       Lava Burst damage increased by 5%.
       Storm Elemental (Talent)’s Call Lightning and Wind Gust damage increased by 20%.
   Enhancement
       Fixed a bug that gave offhand special attacks a 100% chance to activate Windfury while Doom Winds was active.
       Windfury activation chance increased to 20%.
           Note: We’re fixing a bug that added multiple extra Windfury procs to each activation of Doom Winds, but adding some Windfury procs back by increasing the baseline activation chance. This should also improve Maelstrom generation outside of Doom Winds.
   Restoration
       Chain Lightning (Restoration) damage increased by 23%.

Warlock

   Affliction
       Drain Life damage increased by 10%
       Drain Soul damage increased by 10%
       Corruption damage increased by 10%
       Agony damage increased by 5%

       Demonwrath damage increased by 15%
       Shadowbolt damage increased by 10%
       Doom damage increased by 10%
       Wild Imps damage increased by 10%
       Dreadstalker attack power increased by 10%

       Doomguard (Demonology)’s Doom Bolt damage increased by 18%
       Demonbolt (Talent) damage increased by 10%
       Implosion (Talent) damage increased by 15%

       Incinerate damage increased by 11%
       Immolate damage increased by 11%
       Conflagrate damage increased by 11%
       Rain of Fire damage increased by 11%, and cast time removed
       Cataclysm (Talent) damage increased by 11%
       Channel Demonfire (Talent) damage increased by 11%

Warrior

   Arms
       Exploit the Weakness (Artifact Trait) bonus reduced to 3% per point.
       Focused Rage (Talent) damage bonus reduced to 30%.

       Intercept Rage generation reduced to 10.
       Shield Slam Rage generation reduced to 10.

PvP

Developers’ Notes: While many of the above changes are beneficial for PvP, some specs need additional tuning for PvP situations. Some of the PvP- specific changes we’re making are intended to counteract the above, while others are simply intended to help overall PvP balance.

   Battlegrounds
       Tank-specialized characters no longer take additional damage while carrying a flag.
   Death Knight
       Blood
           Consumption (Artifact Ability)’s healing is no longer reduced in PvP.

       Havoc
           Fury of the Illidari (Artifact Ability) damage is now reduced by 10% in PvP (up from a 30% reduction).

   Monk
       Mistweaver
           Counteract Magic (Honor Talent) bonus to Renewing Mist reduced to 150%.
       Windwalker
           Strike of the Windlord (Artifact Ability) damage is now reduced by 30% in PvP (up from 50%).
           Agility stat increased by 12%.
   Paladin
       Retribution
           Strength stat reduced by 5%.

       Holy
           Apotheosis can no longer be dispelled.

Class Halls

   Druids with the Evergreen perk should no longer have their planted soils reset after entering an Arena match.
   The Soul Reapers tooltip for the Shadow Heresy talent is no longer incorrect.

Dungeons and Raids

   Emerald Nightmare
       Fixed a bug where players would fall to their death when jumping into the Rift of Aln while mounted.
       Warlocks will now be able to target their Soul Effigies when fighting Il'gynoth inside the heart chamber.

Items

   Damage from Potion of the Old War and Potion of Deadly Grace reduced by 33%.
       Developers’ Notes: Previously, we significantly buffed the damage of these potions, but then discovered some bugs that were significantly reducing their effective damage. Now that those bugs have been fixed, their damage contribution is much too high. They should still feel very rewarding to use, but we’re bringing them back down to Earth a little.
   Fixed a bug that was causing Balance Druids to sometimes engage enemies from unintended great distances with damaging trinket procs.
   The Grove Darkener's Treads should now switch from Intellect to Agility based on your spec.

Professions

   It should now be possible to reach skill 800 in Blacksmithing.
   Cooking
       Rank 1 of Hearty Feast should now reward one feast instead of five. Subsequent ranks reward a cost reduction, rather than additional food.
       Demon Hunters should now get appropriate stats from feasts and other similar sources of buffs.

Quests

   In the Withered Army Training scenario, it should be less likely for Leystalker Dro to be hiding somewhere that he wouldn't normally be encountered by clearing the room.
   A new Archaeology Quests aura is now displayed while you’re on an Archaeology quest in your current zone.
       Developers’ Notes: This is to make sure you’re aware of how many days you have left to complete a large Archaeology project before it expires. We’re investigating ways to provide this in the quest tracker and quest log.
   Aodh Witherpetal will no longer become stuck during “DANGER: Aodh Witherpetal”.

September 21 Edit

Companion App

Version 1.0.2 is now available. Updates include:

   Artifact XP World Quests now show a single icon on the map.
   Fixed an occasional error while collecting the first ready troop.
   Champions below level 110 now show level instead of item level on the mission results panel.
   Times now display the top two units in most places (example: hours and minutes instead of just hours).
   Fixed an issue where a previously-collected troop would appear to be ready for pickup.

Classes

Druid

   (Guardian) The Embrace the Nightmare artifact trait now properly grants crowd control immunity while Rage of the Sleeper is active.
   Ironfur can no longer be dispelled.

Mage

   Flurry no longer causes enemies to attack you until the missile lands and deals damage.

Monk

   (Windwalker) The artifact trait Tornado Kicks should now benefit from Mastery: Combo Strikes.

Paladin

   Devotion Aura should correctly be canceled upon changing specializations or talents

Rogue

   Death from Above should now correctly deal its initial AOE damage to all nearby targets, regardless of the direction faced.
   (Assassination) Fixed a bug that was causing Poison Knives to deal very little damage to targets beyond the first.
   (Subtlety) Soothing Darkness will now only heal the player once per second while Shadow Dance is active.

Priest

   (Shadow) Casting Void Eruption with less than 7 seconds of Lingering Insanity no longer causes Void Form to immediately drop.
   Fade and Surrender to Madness can no longer be used while silenced or pacified.

Warlock

   Unstable Affliction's silence backlash can no longer be grounded and reflected.

Class Halls

   Warlocks can now run through the portal to their Class Hall to be successfully teleported to their Class Hall.
   Mage Class Hall NPCs will now be present as intended during the completion events for "Into the Oculus".

   Gnomish Gearworks and Goblin Workshop items are now restricted to use in Warlords of Draenor zones.
   The Starlight Beacon should now more reliably trigger its 15-second cooldown.
   Fixed a bug where Potion of the Old War was not triggering as often as intended.

Professions

   Basilisks that appear when mining an ore node or creature will only drop additional ore for miners with at least 75 skill.
   The archaeology quest “Echoes of My Ancestors” should no longer propagate credit to other group members.

       Nomi will now also check your bank to see if you have any Silver Mackerel for him to burn.

PvP

   Fixed a bug that caused some Elite PvP gear to be awarded at ratings that were too low.
   The primary stat on all templates has been decreased by about 10%.
   Discipline Priests now deal 15% less damage in PvP, and all other healing specs now deal 25% less damage in PvP
       Developers’ Notes: Since all healing specs have had their Intellect increased (detailed below) to increase their healing, we’ve lowered the amount of damage they do against players to 25% (from 15%). Discipline priests are intended to do more damage than other healers and so their damage done is only decreased by 15%.
   Pets and guardians now take 75% reduced AoE damage in PvP (was 50%).
   Tanks now take 25% more damage from other players.
       The stamina of each tank spec has been increased slightly in PvP instances (battlegrounds, arenas, and Ashran).
   Players who race in or around the Watch Tower Assault: Nightwatcher's Perch during the "Ley Race" quest are no longer flagged for PvP.
   Players who backfill into an Ashran that is closing down because there are not enough players will not receive the Recreant debuff once the Ashran closes.

   Priest
       (Discipline) Intellect increased by 5%.
       (Holy) Intellect increased by 5%.
   Rogue
       (Subtlety) Stamina reduced by 10%, Agility reduced by 15%.
       (Assassination) Agility reduced by 30%.
       (Outlaw) Agility reduced by 10 %.
   Shaman
       (Restoration) Intellect increased by 5%.

Quests

   Abandoning “Cry Thunder!” will now cause Vethir to despawn, and will remove the player from the mount. Players can voluntarily exit the vehicle at any point, which will teleport them to the ground if they're very high.
   Fixed a bug that could cause Illidan Stormrage to prevent the “Ravencrest’s Legacy” scenario from continuing.
   Players will no longer be immediately teleported after accepting “Last Stand of the Moon Guard”, and must speak to Thalrenus Rivertree to be teleported to Meredil.
   Patrols outside of Overseer Durant's room will no longer cause an infinite combat loop during “Make Your Mark”.
   On “Operation Murloc Freedom”, Timeworn Oracles now do less damage.
   All spirits in Tel'Anor should now grant credit towards “Paying Respects”.

   Characters who perform a faction change will no longer lose completion progress on the quest "The Aegis of Aggramar".
   Faction emissaries should now be more easy to select when turning in their quests.

UI

   Fixed an issue that caused the Adventure Guide to display incorrect loot for Emerald Nightmare.

September 16 Edit

Classes

   (Hotfix in testing; to be applied with next weekly maintenance) Most abilities used by Tank specializations have had their damage reduced by 10%. Abilities which are shared with other specializations remain unchanged for those other specializations.

Demon Hunter

   Fury of the Illidari will now correctly continue to do damage if your character is crowd controlled.
   (Hotfix in testing; to be applied with next weekly maintenance) Fel Barrage proc rate changed to be consistent, regardless of target count.
       Developers’ Notes: Havoc burst AoE damage has proved to be too strong, and Fel Barrage was the most prominent source of that. It should shine in multi-target situations because it does AoE damage; it doesn't need to also proc more often in those situations.

Druid

   (Guardian) Ursoc’s Endurance will correctly allow Ironfur to persist for its extended duration.

Monk

   (Hotfix in testing; to be applied with next weekly maintenance) Strike of the Wind Lord now deals reduced damage to secondary targets.
       Developers’ Notes: Windwalker burst AoE damage was a bit too strong, and Strike of the Wind Lord is the biggest source of that. We want it to remain strong for single target, but not as strong with its secondary damage.

Paladin

   Devotion Aura should no longer drop off of the Paladin using it if the Paladin moves too quickly.
   (Hotfix in testing; to be applied with next weekly maintenance) Light of the Protector and Hand of the Protector now heals for 30% of missing health (down from 35%).
   (Hotfix in testing; to be applied with next weekly maintenance) Scatter the Shadows (Protection Paladin artifact trait) now increases the healing of Light of the Protector by 6/12/18% (down from 10/20/30%).
       Developers’ Notes: Protection Paladin self-healing was buffed substantially near the end of beta, based on concerns that it was too weak, but those concerns have proved unfounded. We're bringing it back down to its intended level.

Priest

   Shadow Mania will no longer continue to generate insanity after you unlearn the talent.

Shaman

   The bonus Ghost Wolf speed from Rehgar’s Bodyguard ability should persist through entering combat, though it will not apply when entering Ghost Wolf while in combat.

Warlock

   Destruction Warlocks that are stuck on the final Artifact acquisition quest "Ritual Ruination" should now find it easier to get through all obstacles. Any warlocks that already have the Artifact, but are stuck on a quest objective, should return to Dalaran to get full credit for the quest.
   Pleasure through Pain will now properly reduce the cooldown of Shadow Bolt while the Succubus is affected by Glyph of Shivarra.

Class Halls

   Fixed a bug that was preventing some players from being granted all of the follower missions that were intended for their followers’ ilevels.
   Fixed an issue where very rarely, players would not be able to acquire Champions on certain characters.
   Hunters who have researched the Eagle Ally perk and have since changed to no longer have that perk will no longer be teleported to unusable flight points when using the Flight Master's Whistle.
   The rewards from Twisting Nether Demon Hunter Class hall trait have been improved.

Dungeons

   Assault on Violet Hold
       Blood-Princess Thel'ena's Essence of the Blood Princess now increases pet and guardian damage done by 100%.
   Darkheart Thicket
       Fixed an issue that was causing Dresaron to sometimes fly away.
   Throne of Thunder
       Fixed an issue where Megaera could reset when players attempted to solo the encounter.

Items

   Legion foods and drinks should now restore twice as much health and mana.
   The damage output of Potion of Deadly Grace and Potion of the Old War has been increased by 100%.

PvP

   Several followers have had the effectiveness of their abilities reduced against players.
   Fixed an issue where PvP World Quests would occasionally reward items that were more powerful than intended for low Honor rank players.
   Demon Hunter
       Fury of the Illidari now deals 30% less damage to players

Quests

   You can now summon Dread Captain Thedon for the World Quest “Dread End” if you kill Serpentrix before interacting with the Ghostly Brazier.

September 15 Edit

Classes

Druid

   The Restoration Druid artifact trait Power of the Archdruid will now correctly always spread Regrowth to additional targets when you cast Regrowth instead of sometimes spreading Rejuvenation.

Monk

   Soothing Mist cast from the Monk’s Jade Serpent Statue should cancel on targets farther than 60 yards from the statue.
   (Windwalker) The Tornado Kicks Artifact trait will no longer sometimes reduce your first Rising Sun Kick damage.

Shaman

   Players who use the Portal to the Maelstrom instead of the Astral Gate to the Maelstrom will now be granted credit for "The Voice of Thunder" quest.
   Bodyguard: Rehgar Earthfury now correctly makes Ghost Wolf move at 100% extra speed (was 130%).

Warrior

   Rampage weapon trails now show for every swing of rampage regardless of whether the weapon was sheathed.

   Players are now able to summon other players into Mythic dungeons as long as the player being summoned meets the requirements of the dungeon.
   Eye of Azshara
       Restless Tides now cast Imprisoning Bubble and Undertow correctly when more than one player is in melee with them.

Items

   Identified and fixed an issue that could cause Legion legendary items to drop more frequently than intended if a player had already received their first legendary.
   Coins caught in the Dalaran Fountain are now Bind on Pickup.
   Jeweled Signet of Melandrus now correctly increases the damage of Auto Shot for Hunters.
   Stabilized Energy Pendant no longer causes resources to drain when the player changes zones.

NPCs

   Players are no longer able to use the Bribe and Mind Control abilities on Ysera.

Professions

   Cooking
       Players who have previously killed Myonix should be able to acquire the Leybarbeque Ribs recipe on subsequent kills.
   Enchanting
       Fixed an issue where some epic quality items awarded from world quests provided incorrect disenchant materials.
       Enchant Cloak – Gift of Critical Strike, Enchant Cloak – Gift of Haste, Enchant Cloak – Gift of Mastery, and Enchant Cloak – Gift of Versatility now increase the player’s movement speed by 2% (was 10%).
           Developers’ Notes: In fights where movement speed is important, Draenor cloak enchants (which reward run speed) were outperforming the best Legion cloak enchants (which do not).  To protect enchanters from having to farm Draenor materials, we've reduced the run speed bonus on Draenor cloak enchants to 2%. We feel that cloak enchants aren’t the ideal place for run speed enhancements, and we will continue to look at interesting run speed options as the expansion continues.

PvP

   PvP World Quests should have rewards restored for Prestiged players.
   Hired Underbelly Guards should be much less likely to leave you.
   Warrior
       Pain Train now provides a Battle Cry to all nearby allies that increases critical strike by 30%.

Quests

   The Lightning Rod cannot be used on the same mob multiple times during the World Quest “Electrosnack”.
   "Shallow Graves" should now appear at all times for players on the quest "A Grisly Task".
   Guardian Druids should no longer be prevented from completing "When Dreams Become Nightmares" when looting the Claws of Ursoc.
   Fixed a bug that caused some players on "Cry Thunder!" to be forced to get their dragon killed to be able to dismount.
   On “Shrine of the Truthguard”, players who navigate to Dalaran by using their Dalaran Hearthstone, regular Hearthstone, or by getting ported, will receive the “Return to Dalaran” objective and become able to turn in the quest to Lord Maxwell Tyrosus.
   The Mining World Quest “Leyworms” now requires 10 Leystone-Encrusted Spikes (was 40).
   Valewalker Farodin should now properly tell his story during the quest "Fragments of Disaster."
   In Maw of Souls, Ymiron’s Broken Blade now drops on Normal, Heroic, and Mythic difficulties for Warriors who have completed "Champions of Skyhold".
   Hunters are now able to complete "Delicate Enchantments" by using the "I'm ready" chat option after leaving the quest objective area.
   On-death effects should no longer behave unusually when the player reaches 1 HP during “Withered Army Training”.

Services

   Performing a faction transfer on a character who has completed an Artifact Acquisition quest, but not yet turned it in, will no longer destroy the artifact when the quest is removed from players' logs. Players may then re-accept the Artifact quest after the transfer has completed and will receive full credit for the quest.

September 14 Edit

Classes

Hunter

   Hati will now reset appearance to the default blue wolf form the first time summoned.
       Developers’ Notes: Due to a bug, some hunters had Hati transform with the Essence Swapper into appearances that are unintended. A fix has been made for this to prevent future issues, but to get rid of any unintended appearances that players may already have, Hati’s appearance will be reverted to the default blue wolf when first summoned, and should retain any appearance changes thereafter. The Essence Swapper will continue to allow you to change Hati’s appearance to match that of your currently active hunter pet.

Paladin

   Judgment's damage on secondary targets should correctly match its damage on the primary target.

Priest

   Clarity of Will's maximum shield size will be correctly increased by Versatility.

Shaman

   (Enhancement) Feral Lunge will no longer threaten enemies when cast. Feral Lunge now only causes threat when it lands and deals damage.

Class Halls

   The amount of follower experience granted by missions has been increased.
   Lower-level followers should have access to more missions, even when the player has very high level followers active.
   Players who failed to be rewarded Hymdall during the resolution of the quest "Jorhuttam" are properly granted him as a follower after entering their class hall.

Dungeons

   Players should no longer be able to apply for Premade Group Finder parties for Arcway or Court of Stars if they have not gained access to those dungeons.
   Eye of Azsharah
       For the quest “Cleansing the Dreamway”, Rarefied Water should now drop from every boss. Other enemies no longer drop the item for the quest.

Items

   Level 110 legendary rings and amulets, which all previously had no sockets, should now have 1 Prismatic socket per item.

NPCs

   Blingtron 6000 should no longer transport some players underneath the world.

Professions

   The alchemy spell Transmute: Fish to Gems should now take Cursed Queenfish, not Ghostly Queenfish.

Quests

   Operation Murloc Freedom now only rewards Timeworn Artifacts while the World Quest is active.

   The quest object "The Black Tome" for the quest "The Black Tome" now spawns in a location that is accessible without having to jump onto the altar.

   Adjustments to spawn rate and credit for the Fishing World Quest “Buoy Fishing” have been made to streamline the quest.

Zones

   Players should no longer experience phasing issues when re-visiting Dalaran over Karazhan for the Legion pre-launch quests.

September 13 Edit

Classes

Druid

   Shifting into Bear Form will no longer freeze resource decay for non-Guardian druids.

Hunter

   Barrage range will now correctly match the range of the Hunter’s other abilities.
       Developers’ Notes: During the recent updates to Barrage, we discovered it extended approximately 2 yards beyond the range of autoshot and other abilities.  We’re changing it to more closely match.

Paladin

   Hammer of the Righteous will no longer show its impact visual on dead targets.

Rogue

   Ghostly Strike debuff application and removal are now correctly posted to the combat log.

Warlock

   Soul Shards now regenerate to 3, while out of combat (up from 1).
       Developers' Notes: As discussed in last week’s Developer Q&A, warlocks (and Demonology especially) needed to go through several spellcasts in order to generate the Soul Shards required to cast the spells needed for them to operate at peak efficiency. In outdoor gameplay and against packs of enemies in dungeons, this often meant that combat was ending just as the warlock was getting warmed up. Allowing warlocks to begin combat with 3 Soul Shards instead of 1 should let them bring more of their arsenal to bear in shorter encounters.

Warrior

   Mannoroth's Bloodletting Manacles now heals the warrior based on base Rage spent, rather than actual rage spent, to account for Rage cost reduction effects.
   (Arms) Colossus Smash's cooldown reduced to 30s.
       Developers' Notes: The cooldown on Colossus Smash serves as bad luck protection against long streaks of Tactician not activating. At 45 seconds, the worst case scenario of actually waiting for the full cooldown to elapse was a rare occurrence that was particularly noticeable (and frustrating) when it happened. At 30 seconds, the majority of the time Colossus Smash will still reset before its cooldown elapses, but those unlucky streaks should feel a little better.
   (Arms) Focused Rage's damage bonus reduced to 40% per stack.

Dungeons

   Luck of the Draw now properly increases pet and guardian damage.
   Assault on Violet Hold
       Sael'orn will no long aggro players immediately when she spawns.
       Fel Prison will no longer target healers in Heroic and Mythic difficulty.
   Maw of Souls
       Resolved an issue where Nether Rip didn’t appear on lower graphics settings.

Items

   (Hotfix work in progress) Emissary bags from completing World Quests now contain equippable items for your class.
   The Derelict Skyhorn Kite now has a 15 minute cooldown.

NPCs

   The Imperial Arcanist and the Imperial Spellbreaker that spawn in front of Lothrius Mooncaller’s room in Suramar – The Athenaeum no longer drop loot or grant experience when killed by the Moonfall Manafiend summoned by a player or by Lothrius Mooncaller.
   Regular creatures at Warden Towers should spawn more rapidly when attacked by many players.
   Brimstone Destroyers in Azsuna can no longer be enslaved.

Professions

   Mother's Skinning Knife is now only usable by players who know Skinning.
   Several Alchemy quests which required Heroic Dungeon kills can now be completed in Mythic.
   Engineering
       Players should no longer be able to skill up Engineering in Legion by making Gearspring Parts.  It should now be slightly easier to skill up to 800 by making goggles or Trigger.
       The Arcanic Compressor is now multi-drop and can be looted several engineers in a group for completion of “Revamping the Recoil”.

PvP

   Several followers have had the effectiveness of their abilities reduced against players.
   Fixed an issue causing some PvP World Quests to have invalid rewards for Honor level 50 players.
   Flickering Shadows will no longer activate if the Rogue is capturing a point in Domination maps such as Arathi Basin.
   The time between Wintergrasp and Tol Barad battles has been increased to 1 hour.
   Skirmish victories now award 100 honor (was 50).
   The first random battleground win of the day now rewards a Soldier's Splendor (250 Artifact Power).

Quests

   In the Warrior Class Campaign Ulduar Scenario, the door after Brood Queen Morvaniss should now always open when you kill her.
   On the World Quest “Ley Race”, ley line nodes should now spawn more quickly as you go.
   Death Knights should no longer become stuck on “Steeds of the Damned”.
   Druids should no longer be stuck on “Gathering the Dreamweavers”.
   Players that manage to find themselves in the "Champions of Elune" scenario without a vehicle will now be teleported out after 30 seconds.
   Bind on Equip items have been removed as possible rewards from World Quests.
       Developers’ Notes: As a player’s own item level increases, the quality of many World Quest item rewards rises as well. However, when these items can circulate throughout the economy, they can overshadow other sources of loot, and crafted items especially. World Quests should feel rewarding, but we want that to be because of a direct value to your character.
   The Warden Tower World Quests are now on 6 hour rotations (was 3 hours).
   Withered in the Withered Army Training scenario should now be able to throw rocks from point blank range.  Ow!

September 8 Edit

Classes

   (In progress) Players should no longer be stopped abruptly when executing uncontrolled movement spells such as Roll, Fel Rush, and Flying Serpent Kick.

Priest

   (PvP) Holy Word: Chastise will no longer remove periodic damaging effects from targets in PvE situations.

Dungeons

   Black Rook Hold
       Fel Vomit from the Smashspite the Hateful encounter in Black Rook Hold will no longer persist after the encounter is defeated.

Items

   The secondary stats on Legion gems have been significantly decreased.
       Developers’ notes: Gems are not in the same place as they were in previous expansions. They’re a bit too powerful, and this was not intended. Sockets are still quite valuable and will continue to be so, but we need to reduce the difference between an item having a socket vs. not having a socket.

PvP

   Ashran
       Ashran Dominance now rewards 500 honor for completion.
       Slay Them All now rewards 200 honor for completion.
   Honor awarded from skirmishes has been tripled.

Professions

   Enchanting Rank 2 and Rank 3 recipes now have the “Requires Previous Rank” text.
   Mass Prospecting should now return the same amount of gems as normal Prospecting.

Quests

   Players can now complete "WANTED: Shara Felbreath" after leaving combat and returning.
   Enemies should now have lower health and damage in Chapter 3 of the Warrior Class Hall scenario.
   A marker on your map should now appear for the objective of the Stormheim quest “The Trials Continue”.
   Marksman hunters who left Niskara without talking to Vereesa can speak to her at Krassus' Landing to complete the "Rescue Mission" quest.
   The Mage Order Campaign quest "What Is Going On Here" objectives should now complete reliably.

Suramar

   Blackhawk's Bulwark PvP Captains should respawn more quickly.
   Fel Cannons in Felsoul Hold should respawn more quickly.
   The World Quest map marker for Starstalker Point Alliance has been moved to its accurate location.
   During “Ghostship”, players can no longer use the Valarjar Harpoon to damage other players or player controlled NPCs.

September 7 Edit

Hotfixes

Classes

Hunter

   Barrage now fires in a tighter cone, and its visual has been improved to better show its area of effect.
       Developers’ Notes-- Barrage fulfills a fantasy of a wild spray of shots in a large area. Of course, that can be dangerous, and often Hunters accidentally pull additional enemies with Barrage, especially in Legion dungeons. We saw this as a failure on our part to convey what it actually does. This hotfix should allow Hunters to get a feel for the shape and size of it and build a reliable expectation of what will happen when they cast Barrage. No change was made to Barrage’s damage. We hope that this helps Hunters and their groupmates to have a more pleasant dungeon experience.

Rogue

   Outlaw Rogues with Curse of the Dreadblades ability active will no longer take the backlash damage if Saber Slash strikes a second time.

Shaman

   The Enhancement Shaman Stormflurry Artifact Trait will now properly interact with the Ascendance talent and the Windstrike ability.

   Darkheart Thicket
       Rotheart Keeper's Vile Mushrooms now explode, damaging nearby enemies.

Items

   (Hotfix in testing) Rocfeather Skyhorn Kite: cooldown raised to 15 minutes (was 2 minutes). Shared cooldown raised to 3 minutes.
   (Hotfix in testing) Brulfist Idol: Knockback height reduced significantly.
       Developers’ Notes: The two toys above (combined, or in conjunction with other things such as Emerald Winds) were too effective and diminished the value of utility and world-navigation tools that are core to certain classes and professions.
   Touch of the Void: the tentacles summoned by this trinket no longer scale past level 100.
   Reduced the active effect potency of Heirloom trinkets acquired from Warlords of Draenor Mythic Dungeons.

   Fleet Admiral Tethys is now available in the Hall of Shadows to turn in "The Dreadblades", even when Fleet Admiral Tethys is in Stormheim.
   Warriors who enter the scenario for "The Hunter of Heroes" will now properly advance the quest if they walk into Tideskorn rather than take Aerylia’s ride.

Professions

   Reaves Module: Snack Distribution Mode no longer requires feasts.

PvP

   Experience earned from gaining Honor has been reduced by approximately 50%.
       Developer’s note: We want battlegrounds and skirmishes to be a worthwhile and rewarding activity while leveling, but that should not be the most efficient method for gaining XP. While we've decreased the experience from PvP, it is still more efficient than it was in previous expansions.

Quests

   Fixed an issue where faction transfers would interfere with Death Knight's ability to complete the Class Hall quest "The Firstborn Rises".
   Fixed a bug causing players who died during the sequence of Dalaran's teleportion would get stuck in Deadwind Pass.
   Paladins should now be able to progress with their Class Hall Campaigns after completing the quest "The Scion's Legacy", by speaking with Lord Maxwell Tyrosus.

August Edit

August 30 Edit

Classes

Rogue

   Corrected an issue that prevented Assassination Rogues from queuing for Legion dungeons even after obtaining their Artifact.

   Legion players who had begun the post-Broken Shore event quests, but not completed them, should now be eligible to receive “In the Blink of an Eye”.

Artifact

   The Living Flames summoned by Felsoul Crushers now give appropriate levels of experience during "The Hunt".
   Players should now properly receive credit for traveling to the Emerald Dreamway during "Cleansing the Mother Tree" when using the Dreamwalk ability.
   Stormweaver Ingrida should no longer sometimes evade during "Stolen Thunder".

Stormheim

   Dread-Rider Malwick should respawn more readily, allowing for completion of “Assault and Battery”.

August 26 Edit

Achievements

   The Achievement “I Saw Solis” should now be awarded to participating players as expected.

Classes

Demon Hunter

   Demon Hunters can no longer go beyond the expected boundaries of the Temple of Kotmogu battleground.

Druid

   Lunar Strike splash damage increased to 35% of initial damage (was 18%).
   Mastery: Nature's Guardian once again gives 1% Attack Power per point, as intended.
   Nature's Guardian doesn't increase healing from Hand of the Protector, Ysera's Gift (self), Cleansing Waters, or Judgments of the Pure.
       Developers’ notes: Heals that scale with the Guardian's maximum health already benefit from Mastery, so further increasing their healing was "double-dipping" Mastery.

Hunter

   Exhilaration (Marksmanship) now heals the Hunter for 30% of maximum health and the Hunter’s pet for 100%.
   Volley now deals additional damage at 100% of Attack Power (was 75%).
   Murder of Crows (Marksmanship) now deals damage equal to 162% of Attack Power (was 135%).

Mage

   Frostbolt damage increased to 185% of Spell Power (was 170%).
   Flurry damage increased to 105% of Spell Power (was 90%).

   Dominant Mind cooldown reduced to 2 minutes (was 3 minutes).
   Schism now deals damage equal to 425% of Spell Power (was 400%).
       Developers’ notes: We recently identified a bug that was causing Discipline Priests to gain far more benefit than intended from caster DPS trinkets.  While we do intend for Discipline to benefit from caster DPS trinkets (including through Atonement), and will be tuning those appropriately, we are slightly increasing the spec’s damage to account for the bug fix. We will continue monitoring the issue.

Rogue

In the future we plan to find a different solution, but we felt it was it was better to address the interaction between Wellspring overhealing and Cloudburst Totem now, rather than wait to change it after it got more use.

       Critical Strike increased by 30%
       Haste increased by 30%
           Developers’ note: Havoc Demon Hunter damage overall was quite high, so we reduced the amount of Agility they receive in PvP.

   Glimpse (Havoc) now grants 3 seconds of Blur (was 1.5 seconds).
   Awaken the Demon (Havoc) now grants 6 seconds of Metamorphosis (was 8 seconds).

August 23 Edit

Classes

Death Knight

   Rune of Razorice now correctly increases the damage of some previously unaffected Frost abilities.
   Blood
       Blood Boil's damage has been reduced by 39%.
   Unholy
       Clawing Shadows damage has been changed to 130% weapon damage (was 150% Attack Power) and now requires facing the target.

Demon Hunter

   Havoc
       Demon Blades now generates 12-20 Fury (was 15-20).

Druid

   Balance
       Blessing of Elune now increases Astral Power generation by 25% (was 40%).
       Blessing of An'she now grants 2 Astral Power every 3 seconds (was 2 Astral Power every 2.5 seconds).

       Solar Wrath now generates 8 Astral Power (was 6).
       Developer's Note: We shifted some Astral Power generation from the level 90 talent row into the baseline spec. This both improves gameplay sub level 90 and reduces reliance on these talents at max level.
   Guardian

       Critical Mass multiplier has been decreased to 1.1 (was 1.3).
       Developer's Note: We shifted some critical strike chance from a multiplier on gear to a flat bonus. This brings the value of critical strike for Fire closer to other stats and also limits the very high amounts of critical strike chance that can be reached with certain gear.

Monk

   Mistweaver
       Renewing Mist mana cost increased to 3.0% base mana (was 2.8%).
       Mastery: Gust of Mist now heals for 10% per Spell Power point (was 8.5%).

       Master Poisoner bonus damage has been decreased to 30% (was 40%).
       Rupture damage has been decreased to 25% Attack Power (was 30%).
       Developer's Note: We shifted some damage from Rupture into poison effects to increase the significance of poisons in the rotation and help poison-oriented talents better compete with bleed-oriented talents.

       Rockbiter damage has been increased to 155% Attack Power (was 135%).

       Frost Shock damage has been increased slightly to 56% (was 52%).
