   Convergence of Fates primary stat increased by 13%. Effect reduced to 3 seconds of cooldown reduction (was 4 seconds).
       Developers’ notes: This change is aimed at changing how Convergence of Fates scales with item level – or rather, how it doesn’t. For some specializations, the cooldown reduction effect is so powerful that the item level of the trinket is all but irrelevant. We’re shifting more of the item’s power to primary stat and less in the base proc to cause the trinket’s scaling with item level to be more similar to other trinkets in Legion.

               Developers’ notes: These changes, along with adjustments to the same set bonuses that were made in patch 7.3.2, should put the combination of 2- and 4-piece sets in line with our plans for the power of those tiers, and allow us to make the forthcoming Antorus tier competitive and valuable for Monk damage dealers. The spec-wide damage increase is intended to keep all of these adjustments from reducing overall damage output, and we’ve counteracted the changes in PvP with intent to be neutral.

May 24 Edit

Artifacts

   Concordance of the Legionfall
       Chance to activate slightly increased.
       Now grants 4,000 Strength, Agility, Intellect, or Versatility at rank 1 (was 2,000).
       Additional ranks now increase this value by 300 per rank (was 200).
       Effects are now reduced by 50% in PvP situations.
       Developers’ Note: While additional ranks of Concordance of Legionfall are intended to have a low impact, the trait was overall weaker than it needed to be. With these changes, it provides a stronger up-front benefit, and very slightly more value for Artifact Power spent past the first rank. These changes also result in an overall nerf in PvP, where we are continuing to monitor its performance.

May 22 Edit

Achievements

   “Grand Opening” now requires 8 spotlights activated during the Chronomatic Anomaly encounter (was 12).

Classes

   Monk
       Ironskin and Fortifying Brew once again grant the correct Stagger percentage.

Class Hall

   Artifact Knowledge can now be researched to a maximum level of 40 (was 50).
       Developers’ Notes: We raised the Knowledge cap from 40 to 50 very late in the 7.2 PTR cycle, out of an abundance of caution: We wanted to ensure that players of all playstyles, as well as alt characters, would view the Concordance trait as accessible. However, between the additional Artifact Power gains added in 7.2 and others that were hotfixed in after the patch released, we’re now well ahead of that mark. Knowledge 40 now seems more than sufficient for players to reach Concordance, and the prospect of months’ worth of additional Knowledge still left to research makes some players feel like their efforts in the interim aren’t meaningful. Therefore, we’re rolling the cap back to 40.

Player versus Player

   Deepwind Dunk is now 15 minutes long, and each player killed during Deepwind Dunk awards 5 points.

       Developers’ notes: The time and effort required for this Hidden Artifact unlock wasn’t consistent with the other two color unlocks. Additionally, now that Challenge Artifact appearances are in the game, requiring you to continue using your Hidden Artifact appearance (which can't be transmogged into the more prestigious Challenge appearance) for 100 dungeons was too much.

April 5 Edit

Achievements

   The "Defender of the Broken Isles" achievement is no longer required as part of the Legion Pathfinder, Part Two meta-achievement.

Developers’ notes: The rotating Legion Assault schedule is designed to have them active at varying times of day over the course of a given week, to accommodate different work schedules and available free time. We're hesitant to have an Assault last for too long, because they stomp on the entire World Quest content of a given zone for the duration, potentially leaving players with nothing to do there once the Assault is complete. But this design doesn't mesh well with an important achievement that requires completion of all four zones - if anything, it causes stress over scheduling and potentially missing specific zones during the cycle. The Defender achievement was never intended to be a major obstacle on the path to flight in the Broken Isles; its inclusion was more for thematic purposes and completeness. As such, we're removing it from the meta-achievement required to unlock flying.

Artifact Challenges

   Arcane Mages can no longer use an immunity, such as Ice Block, to remove Arcane Biology.
   Fixed a bug that was preventing some players from being ported back to the mage tower when leaving the scenario.

Assaults

   While the Assault in Azsuna is active, Prince Farondis should now be visible to eligible players in Farondale.
   Vile Soulwardens in Val'sharah are no longer hesitant to engage in combat.
   Spires of Dread can no longer suffer damage from players' AoE abilities, and they no longer turn to face nearby players.
   Jarod Shadowsong will now appear for players at the base of Black Rook Hold if they leave the terrace before completing "Battle for Val'sharah".
   Drol'maz will now respawn even if his Dark Ritualists were not killed with him.
   Destruction of Fel Spreaders will now grant group credit for “Defense of Emerald Bay”.
   Fixed a bug where players were not receiving quest credit if they were in a raid group during the intro Legion Assault quests.

Broken Shore

   The Sentinax should no longer advertise that it is finished recharging when it hasn't.

Classes

   Druid
       Fixed a bug that caused a Druid to sometimes be disconnected when casting Typhoon.

April 4 Edit

Broken Shore

   Our Valarjar allies have deployed grapple points in key locations on Broken Shore.
   Broken Shore Rare Elite icons will now appear on the Broken Shore map even when the player is not currently in the Broken Shore.

   Sentinax Lieutenants should drop multiple beacons for every player, allowing a quick restart after the break.
   Sentinax Lieutenants now drop many more Nethershards when slain.
   Sentinax cool-down time lowered to 3 minutes (was 5 minutes).
       Developers’ notes: These changes are aimed at aligning the pacing of the Sentinax area without significantly changing the rewards. Upgraded portals should feel more special, portal beacons more scarce, and the final boss for each round of Sentinax activity should be a more welcome sight. Since tapping rules and behaviors of large raids of players don’t present a good experience for nearby parties of five or fewer, and especially solo players who might come along, the change to drops for raid groups is intended to allow everyone more opportunities to tap enemies.

       (Hotfix in testing) Feet of Wind should now properly suppress movement speed reduction effects, as intended.

       Star Augur Etraeus
       The following abilities’ damage have been lowered by 33%, and scale up to 1.5x their new values for Raid Finder, Normal, and Heroic difficulties:

           Fel Impact
           Comet Impact
           Iceburst
           Felburst
       Developers’ notes: These changes are aimed at reducing the difficulty of the Star Augur Etraeus encounter for smaller raid groups, which may have fewer tools to deal with the damage output of these mechanics, without significantly changing anything for large groups.

Holiday

   All versions of "Crushing the Crown" should now grant the achievement "Dangerous Love."

           (Mythic difficulty) Reduced the health of Star Augur Etraeus by 5%, and the health of Things That Should Not Be by 45%.
               Developers’ Note: These changes are aimed at shifting some of the role-specific requirements of the encounter away from damage output in favor of healing, while slightly reducing the overall difficulty of the encounter on Mythic difficulty.

Holiday

   Players should be able to place Love Fools in battlegrounds, as intended.

Items

   Legion Legendary items can no longer be destroyed.
       Developers’ notes: There was a rumor that deleting a Legendary item would increase your chances of receiving a different one. It’s completely false.
   Priest
       Unequipping the Blessed Dawnlight Medallion now resets your Insanity to 0.
       Binding Heal will now properly reduce the cooldown of Holy Word: Serenity while Al’maiesh, the Cord of Hope is equipped.

January Edit

January 31 Edit

Classes

   Druid
       Infected Wounds now reduces the movement of targets by 50% (was 30%). The reduction remains at 30% in PvP situations.
   Mage
       Frost
       Brain Freeze procs gained while you already have a Brain Freeze active and unused will now be delayed slightly.
           Developers’ notes: The delay on the second Brain Freeze will give the Mage time to use the first Brain Freeze proc. For example, the Mage might cast Frostbolt (proc Brain Freeze), then Frostbolt (proc Brain Freeze again), then instant Flurry, then Ice Lance, then Instant Flurry again, then Ice Lance.
       Ebonbolt now travels slightly slower.
           Developers’ notes: This allows the guaranteed Brain Freeze proc/instant Flurry cast immediately following it to land first, providing the Winter's Chill buff to that Ebonbolt. For example, the Mage might cast Frostbolt (proc Brain Freeze), then Ebonbolt, and fully use both Brain Freeze procs.
       The first missile from a Flurry cast should now hit sooner.
           Developers’ notes: This allows a Frostbolt or Ebonbolt cast immediately before a Brain Freeze Flurry to more consistently benefit from that Flurry's Winter's Chill effect, even if the mage isn’t standing at long range. This allows the Frost Mage who has an active Brain Freeze to cast Frostbolt/Ebonbolt, then an Instant Flurry, then Ice Lance while standing 15+ yards from the target. Previously, the Mage had to be about twice as far away.
   Priest
       Atonement will now heal players who are out of line of sight of the Priest.
   Rogue
       Agonizing Poison application no longer increases Kingsbane damage by twice the listed amount.
       Crippling Poison, Pistol Shot, and Nightblade/Night Terrors now reduce the movement of targets by 50% (was 30%). The reduction remains at 30% in PvP situations.

       Mending Bandage will now remove bleed effects on targets other than the Hunter.
   Monk
       Xuen summoned by Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger now deals 40% less damage in PvP situations.

   Alterac Valley
       Alterac Ram Collar and Frostwolf Muzzle can be properly used to complete "Empty Stables".
   Demon Hunter
       Eye of Leotheras will no longer scale with increased damage, and instead will always deal a maximum of 6% of the targets health in damage each time it procs.
   Paladin
       Ultimate Sacrifice will now properly no longer cancel when the Paladin is under 20% health.
       Ultimate Sacrifice will now be removed from the target if the Paladin dies while active.
   Priest
       Vim and Vigor now increases the value of absorption effects.
       Holy Ward should now properly prevent Cyclone and Imprisonment modified by Detainment.

       Fixed a bug that caused Ironfur’s duration to be inaccurate when modified by time effects.
   Monk
       Dampen Harm will now calculate its damage reduction % based on the size of the hit before Stagger (was after).

   The Nighthold
       Spellblade Aluriel

Player versus Player

   Druid
       Sharpened Claws does not cause Thrash to cost 15 Rage.

       Players who complete a Mythic Keystone dungeon at level 13, 14, or 15 will receive items of the following item levels from the chest at the end of the dungeon:
           Mythic 13 – 875
           Mythic 14 – 880

           Mythic 13 – 890
           Mythic 14 – 895
           Mythic 15 – 900

Items

   Aluriel's Mirror: Healing-over-time effectiveness increased by 140%. Area of effect healing detonation effectiveness reduced by 35%.
       Developers’ Notes: Aluriel’s Mirror’s detonation effect is strong when it activates, but hard to rely on. We’re increasing the heal-over-time effect significantly to improve the up-front value of this trinket, and reducing the detonation effect slightly to compensate.
   Animated Exoskeleton: Absorb amount increased by 33%.
   Arcanogolem Digit: Damage increased by 30%.
   Claw of the Crystalline Scorpid: Damage increased by 30%.
   Convergence of Fates:
       (Frost Death Knight) Proc rate increased by 10% with Empower Rune Weapon, decreased by 23% with Hungering Rune Weapon.
       (Unholy Death Knight) Proc rate increased by 68% with Summon Gargoyle, and no change with Dark Arbiter.
       (Feral Druid) Fixed a bug that prevented Incarnation from working properly with Convergence, and no change with Berserk.
       (Windwalker Monk) Proc rate decreased by 62% with Storm, Earth, and Fire, and decreased by 75% with Serenity.
       (Retribution Paladin) Proc rate increased by 250% with Avenging Wrath, and increased by 25% with Crusade.
   Draught of Souls: The Use effect of this trinket now respects the global cooldown. The damage of this trinket is now reduced by 30% for Unholy Death Knights (was reduced by 40%).
       Developers’ Notes: Since Draught of Souls deals Shadow Damage, it’s increased by Unholy’s Mastery, which means we needed to reduce its base damage to keep its overall value similar to other classes. It’s currently a little too low, however, so we’re increasing the damage it deals for Unholy.
   Entwined Elemental Foci: The amount of Critical Strike, Mastery, and Haste granted by this item has been increased by 5%.
   Etraeus' Celestial Map: The amount of Critical Strike, Mastery, and Haste granted by this item has been increased by 5%.
   Fury of the Burning Sky: Damage increased by 40%.
   Icon of Rot: Damage increased by 40%.
   Might of Krosus: Damage reduced by 25%, but is now always a critical strike. Also, fixed a bug where the cooldown was incorrectly being reduced if Might of Krosus damaged at least 3 targets. The tooltip for Might of Krosus will display the amount of damage that will result from the critical hit, not the base damage.
   Perfectly Preserved Cake: Absorb amount increased by 140%.
   Pharamere's Forbidden Grimoire: Damage increased by 85%.
   Star Gate: Damage increased by 30%.

   Druid

       Enhancement
           Windfury can no longer be activated by Windfury Totem’s Windfury.

January 23 Edit

Classes

[All class changes below will take effect with weekly realm restarts in each region.]

   Druid
       Feral
           Increased the damage of most Feral spells and abilities by 8% (Ashamane's Frenzy, Brutal Slash, Ferocious Bite, Maim, Moonfire, Rake, Shred, Swipe, Thrash, Rip).
               Developers’ Notes: Feral's playstyle feels good, but isn't putting up the numbers that it should be, so we're giving them an across-the-board damage buff.
   Hunter
       Combat Experience (Pet Passive) now increases the damage of primary pets by 60% (was 50%).
           Developers’ Notes: This is primarily a damage buff to Beast Mastery, but will have a tiny benefit to Survival and occasionally Marksmanship as well.
       Marksmanship
           Arcane Shot now generates 8 Focus (was 5).
           Multi-Shot now generates 3 Focus per target hit (was 2).
           Sidewinders damage increased by 33%.
               Developers’ Notes: Marksmanship has given a lot of feedback that the rotation often winds up casting too many consecutive Focus generators.  We are making two changes: first, helping avoid that problem by increasing the Focus generation of Arcane Shot and Multi-Shot. Second, making it more attractive to use Sidewinders in more situations, for players who prefer the pacing of the rotation with that talent.
   Mage
       Arcane
           Increased the damage of most Arcane spells and abilities by 8% (Arcane Barrage, Arcane Blast, Arcane Explosion, Arcane Missiles, Arcane Orb, Nether Tempest, Supernova).
           Overpowered now increases the damage and mana cost bonuses of Arcane Power to 60% (was 70%).
           Amplification now increases Arcane Missiles damage by 12% (was 15%).
               Developers’ Notes: Arcane has been doing well in Patch 7.1.5, but its numbers are lacking a bit. We're giving them an across-the-board damage buff, but tempering that with small reductions to a couple of new talents that are proving to be too strong.
       Fire
           Increased the damage of most Fire spells and abilities by 3% (Blast Wave, Cinderstorm, Dragon's Breath, Fire Blast, Fireball, Flame Patch, Flamestrike, Living Bomb, Meteor, Phoenix Flames, Pyroblast, Scorch).
           Pyroblast mana cost reduced by 20%.
           Flamestrike mana cost reduced by 17%.
               Developers’ Notes: Under certain circumstances, it was possible for Fire to run out of mana. It's only intended that mana is a constraint on Fire's utility, not its damage.
       Frost
           Increased the damage of most Frost spells and abilities by 4% (Ebonbolt, Blizzard, Cone of Cold, Flurry, Frost Bomb, Frostbolt, Frozen Orb, Ice Lance, Ice Nova, Waterbolt, Ray of Frost, Water Jet).
           Comet Storm damage increased by 30%.
           Flurry now fires its missiles faster.
               Developers’ Notes: Comet Storm is failing to live up to expectations, so we're buffing its damage. The Flurry change will help Flurry feel more responsive, while simultaneously solving a potential issue where Winter's Chill could apply to two Ice Lances (instead of just one, as intended) at extremely high Haste levels.
   Monk
       Brewmaster
           Keg Smash damage increased by 10%, and it no longer deals reduced damage to 6+ targets.
           Breath of Fire damage increased 11%.
               Developers’ Notes: Brewmasters could use a bit of help on damage, especially in AoE.
   Paladin
       Retribution
           Crusade now increases damage and Haste by 3% per stack (was 3.5%).
           Blade of Justice damage increased by 20%, unchanged in PvP.
               Developers’ Notes: Retribution's total damage is looking quite strong in 7.1.5, which is fine on its own. However, how that damage is delivered matters quite a bit as well. We've been seeing more and more than Paladins find that the optimal way to maximize their performance is to focus everything they can on boosting their damage during Crusade. This creates a number of problems, including: Crusade feels mandatory, your damage feels very unrewarding outside of Crusade, trinkets and artifact traits are viewed as either amazing or terrible based on whether they synergize with Crusade, and others.
               As such, we're going to tone down Crusade, and compensate with a buff to Blade of Justice. For those that had maximized Crusade to an extreme degree, this may result in a small overall nerf – this is intended. This change also helps prevent Divine Hammer from being too dominant in single-target situations.
   Warlock
       Destruction
           Chaos Bolt damage increased by 9%.
           Rain of Fire damage increased by 30%.
           Cataclysm damage increased by 29%.
               Developers’ Notes: Destruction's damage isn't as high as it should be. In particular, some of its spells that should feel the most rewarding aren't hitting hard enough, especially in AoE situations. We're buffing the damage of those spells.
