WoW Hotfixes - Updated 21 October

Fix Menagerie too, I got extremely quaked when Alcruux yanked everyone in for Grip of Hunger. All these abilities that force you to stack should cancel and suppress Quaking.

AUGUST 8, 2022


  • Hunter
    • Survival
      • [With realm restarts] (4) Set Bonus: Mad Bombardier damage bonus has been reduced to 50% (was 70%).
      • [With realm restarts] Mongoose Bite damage increased by 20%. This change does not apply to PvP.

      • [With realm restarts] Fixed an issue where Raptor Strike was dealing less damage than intended while Aspect of the Eagle was active.
        • Developers’ note: The Survival Hunter Mad Bombardier 4-piece set bonus is still causing Survival Hunters to over perform in multi-target situations. We’re lowering the effectiveness of the 4-piece bonus while also increasing the damage of your single target abilities to offset this loss of damage against a single target.

      • [With realm restarts] Infernal’s Immolation Aura reduced by 20%.

Here are today’s hotfixes:

AUGUST 9, 2022

Dungeons and Raids

  • Fated Castle Nathria
    • Sludgefist
      • Adjusted the Fated Power cooldowns to better align with their ability cadence.
  • Fated Sanctum of Domination
    • Guardian of the First Ones
      • Adjusted the Fated Power cooldowns to better align with their ability cadence.
    • Kel’Thuzad
      • Fixed an interaction where Protoform Barrier (Fated Power) could erroneously trigger after Kel’Thuzad’s health is depleted.
    • Sylvanas Windrunner
      • Adjusted the Fated Power cooldowns to better align with their ability cadence in Phase 2.
  • Mythic+
    • Shrouded Affix
      • Fixed an issue that could cause Zul’gamux to not cast Blood Siphon if she was moving.

Items and Rewards

  • Increased all Cosmic Flux rewards from PvP, Mythic+, and Raids by 100%.
  • Cosmic Flux will now be mailed to players when left un-looted.
  • Trashmaster’s Mantle received from Mythic+ or the Great Vault can no longer be used to complete the “I Am the Trashmaster” quest.
    • Developers’ note: Players hoping to become the Trashmaster may do so by finding a Trashmaster’s Mantle in Operation: Mechagon on standard Mythic difficulty. Players who have received a Trashmaster’s Mantle from Mythic+ since the start of Season 4 may still use it to complete the quest, but should be aware that the Richly Appointed Drape quest reward will be awarded at item level 78.


  • Fixed an issue that prevented “Tempting Fate” world quests from appearing.

Season of Mastery

  • Naxxramas
    • Fixed an issue where bonus loot could not be rewarded when defeating a boss using Runes of Fortune.
      • Developers’ note: Raid groups should always receive an extra Set Piece Token, piece of Gear the boss normally drops, or Splinter of Atiesh per stack of Rune of Fortune the raid has active.

Did someone detect fun again? :pensive:

Dunno about the fun police but the premise behind putting some thought into this being an issue and not that m+ scaling is still way of whack is alarming.

Here’s the hotfix update for today:

AUGUST 16, 2022

Dungeons and Raids

  • Mythic+
    • Grimrail Depot
      • Skylord Tovra
        • Rakun’s Diffused Energy zone positions have been adjusted, but also now show a warning visual at their location prior to becoming dangerous.
        • Spinning Spear is now correctly assigned the Stun mechanic, allowing the loss of control UI to function correctly.

Items and Rewards

  • Increased the vendor cost of Penumbra Thread to 11 gold (was 9 gold).
    • Developers’ note: This price change is to balance the decreased cost of reagents with the change to a regional commodity Auction House.

Player versus Player

  • The Conquest cap has been removed.
  • Spoils of War 25% Conquest and 40% Honor increased buff is now available until Shadowlands Season 4 ends.

Burning Crusade Classic

  • Fixed an issue that prevented the PvP leaderboards from updating as expected.

AUGUST 17, 2022

Dungeons and Raids

  • Timewalking
    • Vault of the Wardens
      • Glazer
        • Temporarily disabled the Focus ability.


  • The objective text for the raid quest “Turning the Wheel” now correctly states that 15 boss kills are required.

Why is the agility of a 288 adrenaline injector the same as a previous season 262? The buff was no were near making these trinkets actually viable. Can they not have the same primary stat allocation as shadowlands items?

Here are today’s hotfixes to Shadowlands:

AUGUST 18, 2022

Dungeons and Raids

  • Mythic+
    • Affixes
      • Shrouded
        • Adjusted the health, melee damage, and ability damage of Nathrezim Infiltrators.
        • Vampiric Claws cooldown increased to 12 seconds (was 8 seconds).
          • Developers’ note: We discovered an issue that caused Nathrezim Infiltrators to have inconsistent health and damage, and as part of resolving the issue we had to adjust their health and damage values. The net result is that Nathrezim Infiltrators should feel slightly less powerful than they did previously.

Items and Rewards

  • Fixed an issue where items purchased with Puzzling Cartel Dinar could not be refunded.
  • Fixed an issue where Enforcer’s Stun Grenade, Kihra’s Adrenaline Injector, and Fleshrender’s Meathook did not reset their cooldowns upon ending an encounter.

How it looks ingame
how saber suppose to look


Hey blizzard! Were’s the lower and upper karazhan nerfs?

nerf explosives…

Any Level 10+ 15+ 20+ 25+
Lower Kara 5.73% 4.85% 4.60% 3.18% 0.84%

Fix ???

best dungeon tunening ive ever seen.

Not sure what went wrong in the run, but from my experience it was probably INSANE DAMAGE OUTPUT on Medivh and Mana Devourer that ate most of the run.

Medivh being nerfed slightly doesn’t really fix the issue that he deals way too much unavoidable damage anyway. Same with Mana Devourer, unless everyone has an invulnerability.
