Hey all! Here are today’s hotfixes.

January 26, 2023


  • Druid
    • Protector of the Pack healing bonus to Regrowth and damage bonus to Moonfire has been increased by 60%.
      • Developers’ note: Previously this talent was gaining extra benefit from various modifiers on the Druid class. With the patch, we changed it to grant the exact bonus listed in the tooltip for clarity and to reduce the swings in value. However, this left the talent feeling a lot weaker, so we’re increasing its spell power substantially to compensate.
    • Guardian
      • Fixed an issue causing Raze to consume extra Tooth and Claw stacks.
  • Warlock
    • Affliction
      • Fixed an issue to where the 4pc set bonus, Cruel Epiphany, was being removed when casting Seed of Corruption, causing it to not benefit.
    • Demonology
      • Fixed an issue where Grimoire: Felguard affected the cooldown of Guillotine, Demonic Strength, and Felstorm.
      • Guillotine, Demonic Strength, and Felstorm now put each ability on cooldown for the appropriate amount of time.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Vault of the Incarnates
    • Sennarth, the Cold Breath
      • Sennarth no longer casts Chilling Blast immediately before entering Phase 2.

Enemies and NPCs

  • Fixed an issue that caused the rare enemy, Bloodbeak the Ravenous, in Nokhudon Hold to have its health scale with attackers.
  • Experience granted by enemies associated with the Cobalt Assembly has been greatly reduced.
    • Developers’ notes: From the start, the Cobalt Assembly was intended to be a max-level feature, and Sundered Flame enemies should not have granted significant amounts of XP. Having a max-level player kill enemies while in a party with lower-level players who stand around and do nothing but receive XP and reputation is not the sort of gameplay we wish to encourage. We’ve adjusted the XP rate, rather than removed it completely, to encourage players to level in more fun, interactive ways, while still leaving this as an option that is no longer the best option.

Items and Rewards

  • The Falling Star Flinger and Falling Star Catcher can now only be used outdoors.
  • Thanks to the assistance of a couple Bronze dragons, the Legion timewalking vendor items now reflect the correct item levels.
  • Removed the holiday requirement for many holiday transmog rewards.
  • Fixed an issue where using Windscar Whetstone caused other on-use trinkets to remain unusable for several additional seconds past the displayed cooldown.

Player versus Player

  • Warmode
    • Fixed an issue that prevented characters from earning “the Horde Slayer” and “the Alliance Slayer” titles.


  • Fixed an issue where crafting EZ-Thro Gravitational Displacer would craft ordinary Gravitational Displacers at certain qualities.


  • The Azure Span
    • In addition to completing tasks for Big Kinook, players can also earn credit for the quests “Community Feast” and “Aiding the Accord: A Feast For All” by throwing any discovered meat into the pot, or by yelling “Yes Chef!” when given a new task.
  • Storm’s Fury
    • Fixed an issue that can cause players to continue to gain stacks of Warmth when at the Temporal Conflux area after the event is over.
    • Fixed an issue with portal capture so that captures occur faster based on number of nearby players.
    • Fixed an issue that caused the lighting to rapidly change when entering or exiting a heat source.
    • “Resisting the Storm” can now be completed when in a raid group.
    • The HP of all Bosses in the Storm’s Fury event has been significantly reduced.
    • The HP of the Winter’s Aegis enemies during the Glakis, Winter’s Wrath boss encounter has been significantly reduced.
Kaivax commented on Glove Texture Bug 10 hours ago

Late yesterday, we fixed this with a hotfix.


Looks like it’s fixed, we can finally play the game lol.

But earlier today, we unfixed it.


I don’t think its fixed I just logged in and mine is still the same

The reversion of the hotfix was done so that we can address a separate bug.

We plan to re-deploy the fix for this glove issue as soon as possible.

Kaivax commented on Graphics menu instant revert 10 hours ago

Late yesterday, we applied a hotfix to the game that had an undetected bug, which caused the issues described in this thread.

Earlier today, we reverted that hotfix.

We intend to fix the bug before we redeploy. We do not expect further incidences of this settings bug.

Thank you!

  • Rupert the Gentleman Elemental has redoubled his efforts to ensure that Handholds for Climbing World Quests across the Dragon Isles are always where they need to be.
  • The Azure Span
    • Fixed an issue where players who participated in the Community Feast would not get quest credit for the quests “Community Feast” or “Aiding the Accord: A Feast For All.”

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • The Transitus Shield will no longer dismount flying players or prevent flying.
January 23, 2023

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Sack of Ulduar Spoils and Large Sack of Ulduar Spoils now drop Emblems of Conquest instead of Emblems of Triumph.
  • Creatures and NPCs
    • Elder Bluewolf of the Lunar Festival has been found, and we’ve relocated them to the Wintergrasp fortress.
  • Dungeons and Raids
    • Weakened the increased healing taken effect generated from Blood of the Loa in Troll Heroic Dungeons with Defense Protocol Alpha active. That buff now has a 4 second duration (was 10 seconds) and cancels when the enemy is no longer affected by Blood of the Loa.
    • Ulduar
      • Iron Council
        • Stormcaller Brundir’s corpse will no longer get stuck midair if killed during his transitions into and out of Lightning Tendrils.

January 18, 2023

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 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.

Dragonflight patch 10.0.5 is now live. Please read on for a list of known issues that we’re working on, and further information about this update.

Updated January 25 Classes
  • Druid
    • Players logging into 10.0.5 as Balance specialization may be unable to use or select some of their Talents in the UI. Logging out and back in will resolve this issue.

    • Some Rogue talents cannot be untalented from the UI without untalenting the entire Class tree. Players can also make a new Loadout to avoid this issue for now.
  • An error will occur when players leave a Trial of Style before it begins.
  • Items converted by the Revival Catalyst may unintentionally retain their ability to be converted.
  • The upgrade preview for War Mode or Storm items may display a higher item level and stats than the player will actually receive.
  • Attempting to apply a weapon illusion sometimes doesn’t work.
User Interface
  • Dragonflight class set bonuses are disabled but will appear active in the tooltip while inside the Mage Tower challenge.
  • While the Trading Post is not active yet, the Traveler’s Log tab will appear in the Adventure Guide with an incorrect tooltip.

Kaivax submitted Changes in 10.0.5 to Item Upgrades 1 day ago

We have a few adjustments to item upgrades in patch 10.0.5 that we want to outline and clarify.

War Mode and Primal Storms gear are no longer be upgradeable by trading gear and upgrade currency (Trophies of Strife, Storm Sigils) at the previous vendors (Malicia in the Gladiator’s Refuge and Rethelshi in the Sapphire Enclave). These items now use the other item upgrade vendors that Valor, Honor, and Conquest gear have used, such as Corxian in the Gladiator’s Refuge.

War Mode and Primal Storms gear obtained at level 70 prior to this patch will still be upgradeable. However, War Mode gear obtained pre-level 70, before the patch, will not be upgradeable.

  • New pre-level 70 gear obtained after the 10.0.5 patch went live will be upgradeable.

There’s a bug fix in patch 10.0.5 to The Drakebreaker’s Breastplate. Before 10.0.5, it incorrectly cost 7 Trophies of Strife to upgrade. It now costs 10 Trophies of Strife to upgrade. This was done to make it consistent with other chest pieces.

Hey all! Here are today’s hotfixes.

Kaivax commented on High Key Rating to be Adjusted January 31 2 days ago

make depleted keys award rating 1.5-2 key levels lower than timed ones, like it was before Dragonflight

Revisiting the scoring system as a whole is something we may do in future Seasons.

But any changes are inherently retroactive, and must be to be fair. We don’t want to make a midseason change that would lower the Rating a majority of M+ players, dropping many of them below important thresholds.

Thus, this is a surgical change to sharpen competition at the very high end, while minimizing the midseason impact to the majority.

Kaivax submitted High Key Rating Adjusted in 10.0.5 2 days ago

With 10.0.5, we’ve made a change to Mythic Keystone Dungeon Ratings. Now, completing a Mythic+21 or higher dungeon, but exceeding the target time, awards Mythic+ Rating as if the dungeon were a Mythic+20.

We award partial Mythic Rating credit for completed dungeons beyond the target time (up to 40% over the target time) to recognize the skill and effort involved, and to encourage groups to stick together even if it seems like they’re going to fall a bit short of the timer. But at the very high end of the system, we’ve heard feedback that sometimes the best way to attain further incremental Rating increases is seeking out keys that a group may have no hope of clearing within the timer. We don’t want to change the way the system works for the vast majority of players who are working their way towards new Valor upgrade tiers or cosmetic unlocks, but past the Mythic+20 threshold, there are no further tangible rewards, other than the leaderboards and eventual end-of-season competition for the Thundering Hero title.

The goal of this change is to ensure that the way to climb the leaderboards and earn a title meant for the best Mythic+ players in the world is by successfully completing dungeons within the allotted time, without negatively impacting the majority of players using the system. With this change, some players who are just barely at 2400 rating, with some of that rating coming from untimed 21+ keys, may drop below 2400 and need to re-earn that Rating in order to continue to upgrade new items to Rank 13.
