WoW Hotfixes - Updated 13 July

Since there were only 2 world quests available when I logged in today, does this mean the only elites available would be those in the same area? Are you aiming to turn Zaralek Cavern into an abandoned zone, like Forbidden Reach is now?

I was thinking this too (Rares and Events), but then I thought I must be forgetting something else to do there.

Rares, Events and Researchers Under Fire mostly require more players (A lot of events don’t but are slow otherwise) which was a problem on day one on my low population realm. So, obviously, it makes sense to give players less reason to go there. :roll_eyes:


I was already disappointed that Killing Rares which drop nothing of any value (except low chance at transmog) being the game in ZC… but apparently even that’s not focus.

So what is? What do we need to do there?

There’s no Meta achievement. The Mounts from the Coins were farmed in 2 weeks. Non of the profession recipes are that useful. And might aswell just buy all the Barter Bolders you need when you hit Renown 20 from doing the Weekly quests.

Why you just fix the issue without pushing compensate buffs same time? Just because we need to rely on a “bug” to have strong dmg means you did something wrong at tests with tuning.

Brewmasters need something in order to be a prio pick at least at m+. Obviously you will not let them be better than your beloved prot paladins but at least keep them 2nd spot for a season.

I think it isn’t even a bug. they just try to nerf the dmg of brm and call it so. if it was a bug, it last for the beginning of shadowlands and to fix it now is pretty sad.

Weapons of Order


5% of base mana

Instant 2 min cooldown

Requires Monk

For the next 30 sec, your Mastery is increased by


12.5%. Additionally,

Keg Smash cooldown is reset instantly and enemies hit by Keg Smash take 8% increased damage from you for 10 sec, stacking up to 4 times

(100ms cooldown)

I mean increase the damage from you is clearly all your damage and not just ability dmg and your equipment is a part of your charakter.

Hey all! Here are today’s hotfixes.

Items and Rewards

  • Fixed an issue where Dragonfire Bomb Dispenser’s charge stacks would be lost upon leaving combat.
  • Ominous Chromatic Essence will now recall the player’s previously chosen Oathstone alignment when relogging without the trinket equipped.

Just want to note that this fix becomes effective after you use the trinket one more time at the Oathstone of your choice.

Are you even going to acknowledge that Zaqali Elders’ loot is bugged, i.e. no loot is dropped for anyone?

Yep, as expected, Zaralek Cavern is a dead zone now. What a fiasco.

Hey all! Here are today’s hotfixes.

May 25, 2023

Dungeons and Raids

  • Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible
    • Fixed an issue allowing players who had completed Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible: Echoes of the Earth-Warder on any difficulty to access later encounters on higher difficulties.
    • The Vigilant Steward, Zskarn
      • Developers’ note: The Zskarn changes address an emerging tactic that trivializes certain aspects of the encounter. We hope these changes will encourage more interaction with the encounter’s existing mechanics, while maintaining its prior level of difficulty. These changes will be live 5/26.
      • The Vigilant Steward, Zskarn health reduced by 15% on Mythic difficulty.
      • Dragonfire Golem health reduced by 15% on Mythic difficulty.
      • Zskarn will now Berserk on all difficulties.
      • Adjusted the position of Dragonfire Traps.
      • Shrapnel Bomb reduced to 3 on Mythic difficulty (was 4).
      • Fixed an issue that could cause an inappropriate amount of Shrapnel Bombs to spawn.
      • Zskarn no longer activates Tactical Destruction based on his location.
  • The Underrot
    • Fixed an issue where Sporecaller Zancha’s Festering Harvest would not destroy spore pods.

Enemies and NPCs

  • Fixed an issue where the Treasure Goblin is spawning multiple times consecutively in Valdrakken.

Items and Rewards

  • Reduced the mana granted by Serpent’s Grand Charm to 2,400 (was 12,000) to correctly account for how healer mana pools are calculated.
  • The Diablo Promotion Charms effects will no longer be applied while in Raids, Rated PVP and M+ Dungeons.
    • Developers’ notes: The effects won’t immediately reapply when you leave these instances. You will need to relog to get them to apply again. We are looking into a possible fix for this.


  • The Savage Green Turtle will no longer be summoned from the favorite mount list on land when it is favored and will now be prioritized when in water.

Player versus Player

  • Fixed an issue with capturing the Risen Spirits during the Classic Ashran Brawl.


  • Fixed an issue where “Seismic Ceremony” would not complete for players who only killed Runestone Fragments and did not click any Primalist Runestones.

Trading Post

  • “Complete Weekly Crafting Quests” and “Fulfill Personal Crafting Orders” activities should once again appear in the Travelers Log.

Items and Rewards

  • Players can now get a Wirt’s Leg drop during the Diablo promotion even if their class cannot use the weapon type.
    • Developers’ notes: We are seeing that some versions of Wirt’s Leg are rarer than others due to a restriction on only seeing items your class can use. With the item being Bind on Equip, we are removing the restriction of only seeing items your class can use, so players will see a Wirt’s Leg more often and can send it to an alt that can use it. Also, players can trade a version of the leg they do not need to others that do.

Player versus Player

  • Classes
    • Druid
      • Moon and Stars will no longer cause Precognition to trigger even if the Druid is successfully interrupted.


  • Alchemy
    • Potion and Phial Cauldrons have had their cooldowns reduced to 10 seconds so that solo alchemists who provide for large raid sizes can do so quickly.


  • The Seething Orb puzzle in the Zaqali Caldera will now spawn more frequently.
  • Fixed an issue where the Elder Magma Serpent might not spawn if Ritualmaster Skarna was defeated too quickly during “Researchers Under Fire.”

Is the Zaqali Elders world bopss quest still bugged?

Please fix the Firelands raid timewalking neck items not being able to be socketed. What’s the point of making the neck items drop as champion 1/8 if you can’t add sockets to them?

right, calling it an issue is laughable when it’s been this way since the ability was introduced 3 freaking years ago

DK’s have Control Undead, ok, but what kind of charm effect do warriors have?

But do you really have so much fun trolling Warriors with these totally useless tweaks, maybe you think you’re funny, or that today is April Fool’s Day and not June Fool’s Day? You are offensive and ridiculous!
