wow 7.1 Hotfixes: November 3rd

5 posts in this topic

The biggest issue since 7.1 launched has been addressed as entering Karazhan with people on different stages of progress shouldn't be a problem anymore (after the required restarts at least). The other big news is that artifact appearance drops from World bosses are now a 100% chance! And coming in third is the news that a lot of the Suramar World Quests were in fact missing by accident and are now back in.

Blizzard LogoNovember 3

Dungeons

  • Experience rewarded from queuing for "Random Legion Dungeon" (Normal difficulty) has been increased by 150%.

Maw of Souls

  • On Mythic Keystone difficulty, the portal to Stormheim should no longer be covered up by the Challenger's Cache.

Return to Karazhan

  • Players who may have missed the final turn-in to Khadgar inside of the Return to Karazhan dungeon are now able to turn in “Fragments of the Past” and “In the Eye of the Beholder” to Khadgar outside of Karazhan.
  • "In the Eye of the Beholder" and "The Tower of Power" should no longer fail to give players credit when defeating the final boss.
  • (REQUIRES RESTARTS) When returning to a partially-cleared Karazhan, the bosses and associated minions that had previously been defeated by the party leader should now properly be absent, and other players with different boss lockouts should be able to join without issue.

 

Items

  • Players can now see and track their weekly and maximum cap of Lingering Soul Fragments in the Currency pane.
  • Hidden Artifact appearances that drop off World Bosses should now be guaranteed on a kill.

Pet Battles

  • The Creeping Tentacle battle pet will now correctly drop on all difficulties of the Yogg-Saron encounter.
  • "Clone"-type abilities on Blood Boil, Bloodgazer Hatchling, and the 2016 BlizzCon pets have been exchanged for other abilities.

 

Professions

Alchemy

  • Recipe: Potion of Prolonged Power (Rank 1) no longer drops after you learn Rank 2.

PvP

  • Players who activate the Ivory Talon buff for the Talon’s Vengeance faction are no longer Friendly to other players and NPCs while inside the Black Rook Arena.
  • Class Adjustments
    • Druid
      • Fortified Bark no longer grants critical strike reduction.
      • Nourish now allows Healing Touch to apply Rejuvenation (Germination) if Germination is learned in addition to other heal-over-time spells.
    • Mage
      • Ice Form now has a 60 second cooldown.

Quests

  • Some unintentionally hidden World Quests in Suramar have been re-activated, including World Quests that are new to Patch 7.1.
  • Lingering Soul Fragments for the quest "Soul Prism of the Illidari" should now be guaranteed to drop from Heroic dungeon end bosses.

Previous hotfixes.

Any confirmation by those enhancement shammies out there that attempted to kill the world boss again this week after already killing him? Does the artifact appearance drop if you're already saved?

edited: Just downed Flotsam while already saved. No joy on the drop... pretty lame that they implemented this hotfix mid week.

I got my artifact appearance on first world boss kill. Also my guildy got it too. But I am elemental as main spec.

Yea, I wonder what the reason to hot fix something like this on a Wednesday was...it being the day after most people kill content on Tuesday. I burned through my three coins and killed every boss (minus mythic of course). Now I don't get that artifact appearance, but people who were lucky enough to be unable to play Tuesday get it at a100% drop. I could just wait till next Tuesday, but there's no guarantee it'll be a world boss that drops the artifact... Which would make us wait even more.

      The latest build brings additional class changes and tuning, but they are not as big as those made in Patch 7.1.5's Build 23109.

      Mind Sear Vampiric Touch Shadow Word: Pain The situation of Shadow Priests in 7.1.5 is discussed in the Shadow Priest Changes Feedback on the official forums. It's an interesting read. Here's the latest post.
      Lore
      To clarify on the 18 seconds thing: The changes to Insanity drain are obviously an overall nerf to Surrender to Madness. That's intentional. We just disagree that it is proportionately more of a problem for lower-skilled players. If you weren't pushing Surrender past 100 stacks already anyway, the difference for you won't be as substantial. If anything, those players are likely to see an increase in duration of their non-Surrender Voidforms.

      That said, there's obviously a lot changing for Shadow in 7.1.5, and once things stabilize, we intend to take another look at the rate of Insanity drain to make sure things end up where they should be.

      Couple other notes for you: We're planning to increase Void Bolt's DoT extension to 3 seconds, up from 2. We're also increasing Shadow's damage across the board in the next build. (Source)

      As you may know, one of the artifact appearance recolors is locked behind the final Legion archaeology achievement, This Side Up, which takes 16 weeks to finish and until yesterday it was not account-wide. As players finally unlocked the achievement and then went to alts to make use of it there as well, you can imagine the less-than-great revelation provoking quite an outcry.
      But luckily, within a day of complaints over it reaching reddit's frontpage a fix has appeared and the artifact appearance is now indeed account-wide! Hopefully when we finally finish Improving on History aka Balance of Power that appearance will also be available for alts.
      Thanks to Feywhelps for noticing, both when it wasn't and was working!

      Location: Horde – US Connected Realms: The Venture Co - Maelstrom - Lightninghoof
      About us:
      Converge has been around since WoW Vanilla and has been raiding together since Molten Core; most of our members have been playing together for years. In its older days, when most of us where young, we were more raid focused and demanded a lot from our members. Over the years we had to adjust our playtime and priorities with a growing list of RL responsibilities and are now, for all intents and purposes, a semi-casual raiding guild.
      At this point in time we are trying to round out our roster and eventually attempt Mythic raids once we feel comfortable with our raid composition.
      Raid Times: 8:00 PM – 12:00 AM Eastern Time – Monday/Tuesday.
      Recruitment: Currently we are only accepting Ranged DPS.
      Legion Progression:
      [EN]    7/7 Normal - 7/7 Heroic
      [ToV]  3/3 Normal - 1/3 Heroic

      Trial of Valor Odyn fix, Guarm Mythic tuning and Helya nerfs and fixes are the headlines for this batch of hotfixes, along with the usual class and quest fixes.
      December 6
      Class
      Demon Hunter
      Fixed a bug that sometimes allowed the leech from Soul Rending to persist after Metamorphosis ended. Hunter
      Freezing Trap will no longer cause the target's next cast to fail in certain cases. Mage
      Ice Block's cooldown will correctly reset at the end of an encounter. Priest
      You can now activate and deactivate Shadowform while mounted.  
      Class Halls
      Players who were unable to submit Artifact Knowledge Work Orders should now be able to again.  
      Dungeons and Raids
      Players in a dungeon during a server shutdown should no longer receive the Deserter debuff. Throne of Tides
      Fixed a bug that was causing Mindbender Ghur’sha to be non-interactable. Trial of Valor
      The Patient Zero achievement should now be obtainable, as intended. Guarm
      Increased the radius of Guarm's Multi-Headed from 8 yards to 30 yards on Mythic difficulty. Decreased Guarm's health by 5% on Mythic difficulty. Developers’ Notes: The Mythic difficulty change to the Multi-Headed mechanic is intended to require the use of 2 tanks on the encounter. We also slightly reduced Guarm’s health alongside this change in order to minimize the effect on groups that were accustomed to only using 1 tank. This is already active in the NA/ANZ region, and will take effect in other regions with their weekly restarts.
      Helya
      The magnitude of Corrupted Axion's healing absorb now properly scales down as the size of a raid decreases from 30 players to 10 players. Resolved an issue that would cause Fetid Rot from targeting more players than intended on non-Mythic difficulties. Reduced the health of several enemies in the Helya encounter on Normal and Heroic difficulties. On non-Mythic difficulties, Adjusted Orb of Corrosion no longer targets Helya's tank targets, similar to its behavior in Mythic difficulty. Odyn
      Fixed an issue that could cause Odyn to sometimes cast a lethal Unerring Blast during the final phase of the encounter.  
      Items
      Many trinkets available from Timewalking holiday dungeons and vendors have had their effects adjusted to more closely match the power level of Legion trinkets.  
      Player versus Player
      Mass Invisibility can no longer be cast on allies holding battleground flags and orbs.  
      Quests
      Havi's message when a player completes "Now That's Just Clawful" will no longer be displayed to all players in the area. World Quest map markers for Kirin Tor World Quests should now function correctly. During “Barrels o’ Fun”, a swirling holy light now radiates from the barrel that needs to be tracked. Players no longer get roadblocked if they teleport out of Well of the Forgotten after interacting with the Bone Pile for the quest "The Rite of the Executioner". Previous Hotfixes.
