[US] Season of Discovery Hotfixes – February 20

HOTFIXES

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.
Swipe now scales with attack power, gaining 10% of attack power as damage.
Threat caused by Swipe greatly increased.
Rip duration increased to 16 seconds (was 12 seconds).

Hunter

Raptor Strike damage when the Melee Specialist rune is active is now normalized weapon damage.

Paladin

Fixed an issue where Fiery Weapon enchantment and Seal of Martyrdom were triggering each other. Neither can be triggered by the other any longer.
Fixed an issue where Fiery Blaze and Fiery Weapon enchantments could trigger or be triggered by Seal of Martyrdom. Those interactions do not happen anymore.

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

Druid

Starsurge was incorrectly getting 30% additional critical strike chance when Eclipse (Lunar) was active. It now only gets 30% increased critical strike chance from Eclipse (Solar).

Hunter

Chimera Shot – Scorpid is now properly mitigated by Weapon Chains and reduction to Disarm effects.

Paladin

Fixed an issue where Seal of Righteousness ranks 4 and higher did less damage than rank 3. This fix has been applied to Season of Discovery and Classic Era.

Priest

Spirit of Redemption will no longer be prevented from triggering for Priests whose Dispersion or Pain Suppression is on cooldown.
Each Priest now correctly creates their own separate stack of Mind Spike effects on the target, and consumes only their own stack.
Fixed an issue where Prayer of Mending was double dipping with Spiritual Healing, and was also increasing by 10% per bounce on top of that.

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.
Drained of Blood during the Blood Moon event now also grants immunity to movement impairing effects.
Fixed an issue where stacks of Blood for the Blood Loa could sometimes exceed the intended 255.

February 14, 2024

Blood Moon-averse Zandalarian Emissaries will now ward players in the far-off lands of Ratchet, Tirisfal Glades, and Duskwood.
The scoreboards during the Blood Moon event should now be more responsive in activating and deactivating when the event starts and ends.
Druid

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.

Paladin

Fixed an issue where the Sheathe of Light spell power proc wasn’t correctly activated by melee attacks.
