[US] Season of Discovery Hotfixes – April 5

HOTFIXES

April 5, 2024
Season of Discovery

Fixed issues around the Leatherworking Wild Leather Vest and Way of the Weaponsmith
The Rugged Traveler will now also despawn if greater than two players enter the quest area.
Level 50 players who are Exalted with the Arathi Basin reputations can now complete the battleground quests usually reserved for level 60 allowing them to obtain their Exalted reputation tabards.
The Sunken Temple

Significant adjustments were made to trash and boss health. Please note: In order for these health adjustments to take effect you will need to soft reset your instance. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Developer’s note: When developing and tuning the Sunken Temple raid encounters, we had concerns about player power going into Phase 3 so we aimed high when tuning enemy health. We feel that we aimed too high and have recently deployed a hotfix that lowers the health of all enemies and bosses within the Sunken Temple to help ensure this content remains accessible to all players. We’ll be watching progress closely and making additional adjustments as needed in the coming days.

Fixed an issue that would occasionally prevent Dreamscythe and Weaver from spawning. Affected players may need to leave the instance and Reset All Instances before it takes effect.

Nightmare Incursions

Nightmare Incursion Quartermasters can now repair gear.
Quest objects in the Nightmare Incursions no longer require a cast time to open.
Drakes’ Corrosive Acid Breath now deals more reasonable damage when coming to the aid of Nightmare Incursion dragons.
Satyrs’ Plagued Shot damage has been reduced and the cast time has been increased.
Plagued Shot now has a minimum range like hunter ranged abilities.
The total gold rewards for Nightmare Incursions elite missions have been reduced by roughly 30%.

April 4, 2024
Season of Discovery

Players can now correctly activate their other talent specialization while under the effects of the preparation aura in Battlegrounds.

Nightmare Incursions

The Blood Moon

Zanzil the Outcast

Ward of Zanzil will now despawn after 30 seconds, summon a reduced number of zombie skeletons, and will be recast less frequently.
Ward of Zanza no longer has totem immunities, and Zombies will despawn after a short period of time.

The Crystal Shore Blood Moon graveyard is now farther north.

April 3, 2024
Season of Discovery

Fixed an issue with the Spirit of Zandalar buff given out by turning in the “Heart of Hakkar” quest not being granted to players in Booty Bay.
The quest “Salvaging the Salvagematic” can once again be picked up from Ziri Littlesprocket after completing the “Salvagematic 9000” quest.

April 2, 2024
Season of Discovery

Fixed an issue that was preventing the Blood Moon event from working properly.
Hunter

Fixed an issue where the Frenzy tooltip on the master Hunter now correctly shows 6% instead of the incorrect 40%. This has no effect on the actual damage done by the pet.

Shaman

Electromantic Caster Mail set – Reduced Lightning Bolt cast time reduction to 0.1 seconds (was 0.2 seconds).

Developer’s note: This set bonus was really strong and resulted in 10% more Lightning Bolts. We’ve reduced the cast time reduction to avoid the possibility of this older set bonus not being replaced with later Phase 3 gear.

Fixed an issue with Way of Earth that caused it to continually trigger the global cooldown while dual-wielding.

March 12, 2024
WoW Classic: Season of Discovery

Class restrictions on Arathi Basin reputation armor rewards have been lifted on all Classic Era and Season of Discovery realms.

Kha’damu now recovers less health from his self-healing effects.
As Kha’damu grows in size, he now becomes more susceptible to attacks.
Mildly Irradiated Rejuvenation Potion now also increases Ranged Attack Power.
Enchanted Sigil: Innovation now increases ranged attack power in addition to its normal effects.
Hyperconductive Goldwrap tooltip updated to better reflect how Hyperconductive Goldwrap works.
Tooltips for new ranged, melee, and spell hit/crit stats in Season of Discovery have been updated to be less verbose. The effects were not changed.
Druid

Fixed an issue with Survival Instincts causing Druids to sometimes incorrectly gain health when shifting into Bear Form, Cat Form, or Dire Bear Form while Survival Instincts is active.

Spellfrost Bolt base damage increased by 50%, and its increased damage from bonus spell damage increased by 14%, identical to the value for Frostbolt.

Developers’ notes: This is to compensate for Mage healers wearing primarily items which grant “damage and healing” instead of “healing”.

Chronostatic Preservation mana cost decreased by 44%.
Resolved some tooltip issues with Chronostatic Preservation.

Paladin

Seal of Martyrdom damage increased to 50% weapon damage per swing (was 40%). Seal of Martyrdom Judgement increased to 85% weapon damage (was 70%).
Seal of Martyrdom Seal and Judgement effects now benefit from talents and effects that modify Seal of Righteousness, particularly Improved Seal of Righteousness.
Avenger’s Shield now properly gains increased damage from the Paladin’s Attack Power.

Shaman

Corrected an issue where Earth Shield was not healing for the correct amount.

Warlock

Grimoire of Synergy now increases damage done by the Warlock and their pet by 25% when it is active (was 5%).

Warrior

Devastate damage increased to 150% of weapon DPS (was 100%), before being increased by number of Sunder Armor stacks.
Fixed an issue with facing when using Intercept.
Deep Wounds will now continue dealing damage after the Warrior who applied it has died.

February 27, 2024
WoW Classic: Season of Discovery

High-Yield Radiation Bomb adjusted:

Its slow effect can now be removed with snare removal effects.
Its damage-over-time is now correctly Nature damage and a Poison effect (was Magical).
The initial damage of the bomb now works on enemies that are typically immune to slows.
The initial damage of the bomb will now always go off when it hits.

The increased armor value of certain mechanical bosses in Gnomeregan has been reduced slightly.

Developers’ notes: The higher armor values on certain mechanical enemies in Gnomeregan was correct and intended, but we will adjust the armor on Crowd Pummeler 9-60 and Mekingeer Thermaplugg slightly to provide up to a 10% increase in physical damage received, depending on modifiers present. We also checked the Mechanical Managerie, and it is using the correct armor values.

Druid

Lifebloom mana cost reduced by 50%.

Developers’ notes: Lifebloom refunds half its new base mana cost per stack when it expires or is dispelled. This part has always functioned in this way, and we’ve seen a bit of confusion around how the mana return portion of Lifebloom functions.

Living Seed now heals for 50% of the critical heal that planted the seed (was 30%). This heal now blooms from non-periodic healing received, in addition to any damage taken.
Nourish mana cost reduced by 27%.
Moonkin Form now also reduces the mana cost of Moonfire by 50% and increases Moonfire periodic damage by 50%. Sunfire also benefits from this change.

Fury of Stormrage improved: when this rune makes Healing Touch instant, it now also makes it castable in all shapeshift forms.
Lacerate critical strikes can now trigger Primal Fury.
Nourish is now instant cast when Fury of Stormrage is active. Nourish no longer breaks Moonkin form when Fury of Stormrage is used to cast an instant version of the spell.

Hunter

Dual Wield Specialization no longer grants a 30% damage bonus to Raptor Strike for wielding two weapons of the same type.

Mage

Chronostatic Preservation no longer checks for a target within range or line of sight on the first cast. Its tooltip states that it has an Unlimited range, andthe first part of the ability now does, but the unleashed heal has a range of 40 yards (46 yards talented), which is unchanged.

Paladin

Crusader Strike now deals Holy damage instead of Physical damage, ignoring armor, and is now affected by Holy damage prevention. Crusader Strike is still considered a melee attack, and not a spell.
Seal of Martyrdom can no longer trigger Art of War, and will no longer be triggered by Frost Oil or other weapon procs.

Rogue

Redirect no longer triggers or is affected by the global cooldown, and its own cooldown has been reduced to 10 seconds.

Developers’ notes: when Redirect is combined in a macro with other Combo Point related abilities, it often does not function as expected. We recommend not including it in such macros.

Main Gauche now generates 3 combo points on your target and base Energy cost reduced to 15.
Just a Flesh Wound threat bonus increased such that Rogue tanks will generate approximately 30% more threat.

Shaman

Two-Handed Mastery rune now also provides 10% increased Attack Power and 10% increased chance to hit with spells after hitting a target with a two-handed weapon.
Shamanistic Rage rune now grants 5% of the Shaman’s maximum mana per
second, instead of a value scaling from Attack Power, Spell Power, or Healing Power.
Spirit of the Alpha rune now grants the casting Shaman 20% increased Attack Power if they cast the spell on a target other than themselves.
Earth Shield mana cost reduced by 67%, and charges increased from 3 to 9. The base amount healed now properly scales with level and is about 50% higher than previously at level 40.
Power Surge tooltip revised to clarify functionality. This rune periodically grants mana every 5 seconds, equal to 15% of the Shaman’s intellect. Some potential timing issues that could have sometimes made it give less mana than intended have been fixed.
Ancestral Guidance cooldown reduced to 1 minute (was 2 minutes).

Warrior

Rallying Cry now correctly benefits the Warrior’s entire raid (was: the Warrior’s party only).

February 26, 2024
WoW Classic: Season of Discovery

Hyperconductive Caster Set’s 3-piece bonus now works correctly with healing and damaging runes.
Chronostatic Preservation duration increased to 20 seconds (was 15 seconds), and now works with mouseover macros.
Drained of Blood will now periodically remove debilitating effects that are still affecting the player.
Additional Chained Spirit graveyards and patrols have been added during the Blood Moon event.
Fixed an issue with Lesser Arcane Elixir that caused it to not be usable at the required level on the tooltip.
Kha’damu’s Blood Craze will no longer increase his damage dealt.
Hunter

Chimera Shot no longer extends the duration of Wyvern Sting’s periodic damage.

Developers’ notes: That interaction was never intended.

Rogue

Between the Eyes no longer shares a cooldown with ranged attacks.

February 21, 2024
WoW Classic: Season of Discovery

Elite and Dungeon Quests now grant additional bonus experience.
The Dismantle enchant now procs more often for casters and melee.
The vendor price of Ez-Thro Radiation Bombs and High-Yield Radiation Bomb has been reduced.
Players in the Spirit World can now resurrect at Chained Spirits for up to 30 minutes after a Blood Moon ends.

Mage

Spell Power now benefits the critical strike damage of Spellfrost Bolt.

Rogue

Preparation now properly resets the cooldowns of Quick Draw, Between the Eyes, and Redirect.
Shuriken Toss will no longer sometimes cause loss of combo points when a Rogue is talented into Seal Fate and a bounced Shuriken crits a secondary target.

Shaman

Offhand Stormstrike hits can now correctly trigger weapon procs, including Windfury Weapon and Flurry.
Healing Rain no longer has a variant height for its animation. The Healing Rain cloud now always appears just above player’s heads.

Warlock

Haunt will now properly increase the damage done by Siphon Life.
Developers’ notes: Siphon Life behaves like Drain Life and will only be increased by Haunt if it is cast while Haunt is already active. These abilities do not dynamically update their values when Haunt is applied or falls off.

February 20, 2024
WoW Classic: Season of Discovery

Increased the number of crafting materials found in Boxes of Gnomeregan Salvage and slightly increased the drop rate of Grime-Encrusted Salvage throughout Gnomeregan.
Druid

Berserk now also increases the number of targets struck by Lacerate while it is active.
Starsurge bonus damage to Starfire increased to 80% (was 66%). Corrected a bug causing this bonus damage to be lower than intended at level 40.

Priest

Mind Spike damage increased by 10%.
Void Plague damage increased by 10%.
Shadow Word: Death base damage before modifiers decreased by 40% and spellpower coefficient adusted to 42.9% (was 64.3%).
Developers’ notes: Overall, this should result in a 33-40% damage reduction on Shadow Word: Death, depending on the amount of spellpower the priest has. Shadow Word: Death has been doing a larger percentage of overall priest damage than intended, and we feel like this could begin to put additional pressure on healers in PvE, as spellpower gear improves and the damage that priests inflict on themselves continues to scale upwards. It could also prove to be increasingly oppressive in PvP, as it’s an instant attack that can be used on the move, from range, with very little counterplay.

Rogue

Shuriken Toss bounce range reduced to 10 yards (was 15 yards).

Developers’ notes: This should reduce the chance of it bouncing a little too far and pulling extra packs in dungeons. It now matches the range of other chain spells like Chain Lightning and Avenger’s Shield.

Shaman

Fixed an issue where Fire Nova did not benefit properly from Elemental Mastery.
The Dual-Wield Specialization rune now provides 50% bonus damage to your offhand weapon swings.
Lava Lash now gains 50% increased damage if Flametongue Weapon is imbued on your offhand.
The proc chance of Maelstrom Weapon is now roughly 50% higher when your main hand weapon or your two-hand weapon is imbued with Windfury Weapon.

February 16, 2024
WoW Classic: Season of Discovery

Hunter

Shaman

Fixed an issue where the benefit of Dual Wield Specialization rune could be lost for Shamans when swapping weapon configurations.
Fixed an issue where Stormstrike would sometimes do offhand damage despite no offhand equipped.
The range on Decoy Totem is now the correctly intended 30 yards, matching the radius of its effect preventing movement impairment.

Warlock

Subjugate Demon used against players in Metamorphosis now has a 10 second duration, with diminishing duration like other crowd-control effects used on players. It is considered a Charm effect like Mind Control.

Stranglethorn Vale PvP Event

Warlocks and Hunters participating in the Blood Moon will now resurrect with their last active pet.
Fixed an interaction with Blood Moon and Spirit of Redemption resurrecting the fallen Priest earlier than intended.
Fixed an issue with Blood Coin turn-ins when a player is the victim of Subjugate Demon or Mind Control.

Fixed an issue where Berserk was not discounting the energy cost of abilities learned from runes such as Savage Roar, Sunfire, and Skull Bash.
Starsurge visual corrected to not hit the caster as well as the target.
Savage Roar visual no longer has a Challenging Roar animation attached to the cast.
Eclipse now properly reduces spell pushback on Wrath and Starfire.

Paladin

Fixed an issue where Guarded by the Light’s effect could be cancelled by the player.

Priest

Fixed a bug that caused Void Plague to benefit more from spell power than intended.
Fixed a bug that made it possible for a Priest to place two copies of Renew on a target.

Shaman

Power Surge gained during a Lava Burst, Lightning Bolt, or Chain Lighting cast will no longer be consumed by that cast (since it does not benefit).

Warlock

Fixed an issue with Fear ranks 2 and 3 not changing into Menace properly while Metamorphosis is active.
Fixed an issue where Dance of the Wicked was giving an incorrect amount of mana back.

Gnomeregan

Electrocutioner 6000

Players can no longer out range or use line of sight to prevent the cast or chain effect of Static Arc.

Mechanical Menagerie

The fight now resets properly if one of the bosses was in self-repair mode when the fight resets.

Fixed an issue with the Spirit of Zandalar buff given out by turning in the “Heart of Hakkar” quest not being granted to players in Booty Bay.
The quest “Salvaging the Salvagematic” can once again be picked up from Ziri Littlesprocket after completing the “Salvagematic 9000” quest.

April 2, 2024
Season of Discovery

Fixed an issue that was preventing the Blood Moon event from working properly.
Hunter

Fixed an issue where the Frenzy tooltip on the master Hunter now correctly shows 6% instead of the incorrect 40%. This has no effect on the actual damage done by the pet.

Shaman

Electromantic Caster Mail set – Reduced Lightning Bolt cast time reduction to 0.1 seconds (was 0.2 seconds).

Developer’s note: This set bonus was really strong and resulted in 10% more Lightning Bolts. We’ve reduced the cast time reduction to avoid the possibility of this older set bonus not being replaced with later Phase 3 gear.

Fixed an issue with Way of Earth that caused it to continually trigger the global cooldown while dual-wielding.

Season of Discovery

Fixed issues around the Leatherworking Wild Leather Vest and Way of the Weaponsmith
The Rugged Traveler will now also despawn if greater than two players enter the quest area.
Level 50 players who are Exalted with the Arathi Basin reputations can now complete the battleground quests usually reserved for level 60 allowing them to obtain their Exalted reputation tabards.
The Sunken Temple

Significant adjustments were made to trash and boss health. Please note: In order for these health adjustments to take effect you will need to soft reset your instance. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Developer’s note: When developing and tuning the Sunken Temple raid encounters, we had concerns about player power going into Phase 3 so we aimed high when tuning enemy health. We feel that we aimed too high and have recently deployed a hotfix that lowers the health of all enemies and bosses within the Sunken Temple to help ensure this content remains accessible to all players. We’ll be watching progress closely and making additional adjustments as needed in the coming days.

Fixed an issue that would occasionally prevent Dreamscythe and Weaver from spawning. Affected players may need to leave the instance and Reset All Instances before it takes effect.

Nightmare Incursions

Nightmare Incursion Quartermasters can now repair gear.
Quest objects in the Nightmare Incursions no longer require a cast time to open.
