WoW Hotfixes - Updated 23 January

Thank you for dragon riding change! QoL is so much better now.

Wow I’m very sad about not seeing any prot warrior buffs. Why not? You should buff prot warriors because i saw some prot warrior streamers who took %1 damage at 20+ mythic keys which is not acceptable. By the way I’m losing %60 of my hp while approaching to a small group of mobs in some 10+ keys with my guardian druid. It’s ok I could lose %100 of my hp too I thank to God for that.

I dont think the change is good as it does not work while flying. You need to be stationary for the 3 seconds after gathering. Nobody does that.

And they were half-naked. Prot Warrior should do that without any piece of gear equipped.

The whole three seconds. So much time. I don’t even know what to do in that time. Maybe summon the dragon? Or start moving somewhere. Huge amount of time is lost.

Hello everyone! Here are today’s hotfixes:

JANUARY 13, 2023

Dungeons and Raids

  • Ruby Life Pools
    • Fixed an issue where Storm Warrior’s Thunderclap was increasing Haste instead of decreasing Haste as the tooltip states.

Player versus Player

  • Battlegrounds
    • Evoker’s Time Stop can no longer be used to drop Orbs of Power in Temple of Kotmogu, or flags in Warsong Gulch or Twin Peaks.

You gather from the dragon. You finish gathering and jump in the air. It only works while stationary. Do You even farm?

I hope for more bigger firemamage buffs. This is the first expansion where i can’t keep up with any other spec or class in mythic plus. I hate to be flamed by other players about my dps and i nearly break my fingers to hold all on cd what i have.

Also my dps is not enough to get about m13 so i cant progress anymore.

You may want to hotfix this

Gurgthock not working again. Would you be so kind and kick this lazy goblin to nuts so he starts doing his job.
Thank you

No. The large buffs some classes have seen is proof of this.

(And things like in SL when some covenant mission followers got 100% buffs. That’s not required if testing was done to any degree.)

Reading the WoW subreddit last night. Sounds like they were having a blast with that boss last night.

Glad they were quick to fix that one.

No fix to the “Fields of Ferocity Redux” World Quest? It’s been broken for 6 weeks now…

Also, fix the issue with the NEW TOPIC button on the Forum page… it hardly ever appears, unless you’ve logged in and out 7 times, restarted your browser 7 times, refreshed the page a dozen times, changed you character 20 times, logged in with Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Safari all at the same TIME! and then JUST maybe, you can access the forums…

Hey all! Here are today’s hotfixes.

January 18, 2023


  • Warlock
    • Fixed an issue where Grimoire of Synergy would not function while Grimoire of Sacrifice was active.

Dungeons and Raids

  • The Nokhud Offensive
    • The Raging Tempest
      • Surge of Power can no longer be removed with player immunities.
  • Mythic+
    • Azure Vault
      • Leymor
        • Explosive Affix - Volatile Saplings no longer spawn Explosive Orbs.


  • We have re-enabled the ability to skip some profession tutorial quests.

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Auction House
    • Added options to sort by Buyout Price and by Unit Price. These can be selected via a gear icon button to the right of the search sorting headers.
    • Now, when you select an item to purchase, the total buyout price is displayed next to the Buyout button.
    • Searching an item name in quotes will now perform an exact match search for that item name.
    • Shift-clicking an item with the Auction House open will now paste the name of that item in quotes to the Auction House.
  • Creatures and NPCs
    • Class trainers were inadvertently forgetting to charge money for the dual talent specialization, profession respecialization, and other paid options. While we investigate the cause of their inadequate accounting practices, we’ve asked them to stop selling the dual talent specialization ability. Anyone who has already purchased dual talent specialization will be allowed to keep it, and we’ll re-enable it once we’ve fixed the issue. The profession specialization services will continue to be offered, but may spontaneously start charging their intended fee.
  • Dungeons and Raids
    • Defense Protocol Alpha
      • Bounty Satchels from Heroic Daily Dungeons, with Defense Protocol Alpha active, are no longer tradeable to party members.
      • The Frostbite effect from Heroic Utgarde Keep and Heroic Utgarde Pinnacle, while Defense Protocol Alpha is active, now appears as a debuff and cannot be cancelled via the UI.
      • The Bounty Satchel from the Heroic Daily Dungeon, when Defense Protocol Alpha is active, is now multidrop. This was an accidental oversight and was always intended to be multidrop. This means all members of the party can loot the item and receive 3 bonus Emblems of Conquest.
    • Obsidian Sanctum
      • Sartharion
        • Now drops an additional item when 2 or 3 drakes are alive, similar to 3.4.0.
        • 10-Player now drops Reins of the Black Drake (instead of Reins of the Twilight Drake) when 3 drakes are alive.

How about Fixing Preservation Evokers Mastery having absolutely no effect

Hey all! Here are today’s hotfixes.

January 19, 2023

Dungeons and Raids

  • Stratholme
    • When zoning into Stratholme from the exterior world, players now have access to all of the dungeon’s bosses instead of the two-wing Looking For Dungeon counterparts.

Could? More like would!

Well, glad it’s fixed!
