WoW Patch 6.1 Hotfixes - Feb 25, 2015

Recommended Posts

11060-wow-patch-61-hotfixes-feb-25-2015.

 

Blizzard released a series of hotfixes yesterday to various errors that cropped up after Patch 6.1 was released on Tuesday, as well as some minor tweaks to a handful of Blackrock Foundry encounters.

 

The original post (and any potential further updates) are available on the WoW blog.

 

Hotfixes as published follow:

 

February 25

 

Classes

  • Tanking Specializations no longer generate threat from heals.
  • Fixed an issue where threat dropping abilities were sometimes incorrectly removing crowd-control effects.
  • Fixed an issue where images summoned by Spectral Guise (Priest Talent) or Mirror Image (Mage) would incorrectly retain threat when resummoned.

 

  • Druid
    • General
      • Shifting in-and-out of Cat Form should now correctly reapply Cat Form's speed bonus while Dash or Stampeding Roar is active.
      • Fixed an issue where various item effects that provides a buff based on the player's highest stat sometimes picked the wrong stat for Balance and Restoration Druids that were shapeshifted into Bear Form or Cat Form.
      • Fixed an issue where Ferocious Bite may consume more Energy than intended when the ability Multistrikes.
    • Talents
      • Bloodtalons (Feral) should no longer incorrectly consume a charge if the attack misses, is dodged, or parried.
  • Mage
    • Talents
      • Prismatic Crystal should no longer be incorrectly affected by friendly auras that reduces damage taken.
  • Monk
    • General
      • Tiger Strikes should no longer incorrectly activate on unsuccessful autoattacks, but will be able to activate from successful Multistrikes. Fixing this will result in an overall damage gain for all Monks, so there are a couple of additional adjustments (see below). Additionally, Tiger Strikes should now correctly provide the full 10% chance to trigger for Mistweavers in Crane Stance while equipping one-handed items in conjunction with off-hand items. For more details of this change, please visit the forum thread: Upcoming Tiger Strikes Hotfix.
        • Keg Smash (Brewmaster) now deals 20% less damage.
        • Rising Sun Kick (Windwalker, Mistweaver) now causes enemies to take 20% increased damage from the Monk's abilities (up from 10%).
        • The tooltip for Tiger Strikes is incorrectly stating that the chance for it to activate is 6.25% while dual-wielding. The actual chance is 5% (and has been since Warlords of Draenor released). The tooltip will be corrected in a future patch.
    • Talents
      • Fixed an issue with Chi Torpedo that caused it to deal no damage unless the Glyph of Water Roll was applied.
  • Paladin
    • Glyphs
      • Glyph of Holy Shock now decreases the healing of Holy Shock by 25% and increases its damage by 25% (down from a 50% decrease to healing and 50% increase to damage).
  • Priest
    • Talents
      • Saving Grace (Discipline, Holy) should now correctly reduce absorbs done (was incorrectly reducing absorption taken).
    • Armor Sets
      • PvP 2-piece set bonus effect for Shadow Priests is now removed at the beginning of a boss encounter. The set bonus will still work during the encounter.
  • Rogue
    • Armor Sets
      • PvP 4-piece set bonus for Combat Rogues should now provide the correct set bonus for Cold Blood. Note that the tooltip will incorrectly display text for the old set bonus and will be fixed in a future client-side patch.
    • Bug Fixes
      • Fixed an issue that could allow the effects of Master of Subtlety to persist longer than intended.
      • Attacking targets immediately after Vanish transitions to Stealth should now correctly remove Stealth and trigger Subterfuge.
  • Shaman
    • Enhancement
      • Fire Nova should now work correctly with Flurry. Additionally, Fire Nova should have its global cooldown reduced by haste.
    • Armor Sets
      • PvP 2-piece set bonus for Elemental Shaman should now correctly provide immunity to silence and interrupt effects while Ascendance is active.

      Because 49 max level warriors (yes, he got another 3 done since last we checked) isn't enough of a challenge, DesMephisto has also been trying to collect all the plate transmogs available. Now we all try to get as much transmog stuff as possible for our mains/favorite chars, but the difference is, he might actually get it done (especially since he's already at 97.82%)! We talked to him about this ongoing quest of his, but first let's celebrate the fact that he managed to get his final shoulder piece today!
      The final item wasn't even RNG-based, but a PvP one, with this arena match being the final step to 1800 rating, the Corrupted Gladiator's Plate Shoulderguards and 428/428 plate shoulders . His reaction is... intense (and profanity-laden)!

      And so a big piece of the all plate puzzle is completed, so we dived a little deeper into this particular obsession/passion of DesMephisto's in a short interview.


      How long have you been on this “quest” and why did you start in the first place?

      It started in Warlords, towards the end when Blizzard announced the account wide transmog. I had always loved having weird items, biggest joy was having Dreadmist helm from Scholomance in Vanilla and wearing it in town. So when Legion came out I started collecting everything in sight, then our good buddy Crieve made ATT (All The Things) and I was really into running old raids and getting transmog, but eventually took a break for a while as the having one lockout a week felt frustrating. (This is part of the reason why World of Warriors exist)
       
      How far along are you?

      I’m currently at 97.82% with the remainder of items being in Legion and BFA.
       
      Of the pieces you’ve gotten so far, which have been the most annoying/difficult?

      Obviously the most attempts would be Tusks of Mannoroth . I had basically brute forced it by using 15 warriors a week with a heroic Garrosh lockout. It took about an hour and a half each week over 4 weeks but it was definitely unreal when it dropped. I had tried beforehand at this but all in all I think the total kills came in around 90ish, which is fairly low.

      Before we had legacy mode enabled for Legion, the shoulders off of Mistress Alluradel were pretty hard to get. I took a ton of warriors to Legion and had to have friends help me kill the boss.

      Probably the shoulders that drove me the maddest were the Pauldrons of Za'qul. I would use a Za’qul/Azshara lockout and try and spam it on warriors. It was difficult though and I had already seen them drop twice before. When it dropped again, I offered 220k gold on the spot and the person was kind enough to accept my offer. Thankfully due to personal loot, it was made a lot easier, I can’t imagine this being very fun to farm in Shadowlands.

      Other crazy items involve Violet Hold, where specific bosses have to spawn and then have to drop the item you need. Both Legion and Wrath basically drove me to insanity trying to predict boss spawns (I think there might be some actual hidden % for Wrath that changes based on the day from what I saw...but maybe I’ve been driven mad by N’zoth)

      Currently my biggest struggle is the boots off Ra-Den which requires you to do all of heroic Throne of Thunder, he drops nearly 50 items, with only 6 at any time. A real needle in the haystack.
       
      Of the ones you don’t have yet, which do you think will take you the longest/which are the most annoying or difficult runs to do? 

      BoEs are probably going to be the hardest, Morlune's Bracer is a rare drop from Strathomle trash. I even attempted to farm it and ended up with the Rivendare mount before seeing it! They sell for around 70-80k currently, sometimes lower, but it is a pretty maddening drop. The Legion BoEs are also personal loot so it makes the whole process just take an obscene amount of time.

      There are the rares in Argus too which have a chance to drop world defiler pieces that can only drop from chests/certain rares. It is all RNG and no real way to target.
      Of course then there's clearing mythic content, I need to kill Carapace for helm. That is going to be a challenging feat considering I don’t raid really currently (I’m geared but just haven’t wanted to raid this patch).
       
      Are you saving any for the end and skipping them now?

      No, I’m an opportunist. If I get the option, I will definitely jump on it. I usually skip the easier ones and focus on the harder things as it feels more satisfying to go down a hill then up one.
       
      Do you have any 1 specific item in mind for the final one you’ll unlock for that 100% plate collection? And if not, pick one!

      Probably Morlune's Bracer, what better way to end something like this then with a transmog you’ll likely never see, lol.

      Are there any transmogs that are not available anymore that you regret missing?

      Mythic Helya, Elite Warlords of Draenor. Obviously the most important transmog, the most meaningful one, Corrupted Ashbringer. Absolutely incredible piece, I’m jealous of Sparty Smallwood. Really wish I had the mind to raid and do Naxx back in BC.
       
      Since we’re on the topic, give us your top favorite plate transmogs!

      The elite set from Tomb of Sargeras 2k PvP in Legion. It is just beautiful. The Mythic Helya set was also incredible.
       
      Also, what other projects/quests like this are you working on/planning on atm?

      It isn’t set in stone fully yet, I don’t know if I’ll be able to accomplish it, but we’ve talked in the community about Project Need for Speed 60, a 31 day charity event speed running all 31 specs from 1-60. We’re looking at supporting Trans Hotline as many autistic people are also often trans. I’m not entirely sure if my mental health will be able to handle it with everything going on lately though.

      Montabon runs World of Warcraft with quite the setup, using a VR treadmill to move in the game and HTC Vive.
      On his YouTube channel, we also found one recent video, where he runs a Blackrock Depths Arena farm using the same setup.
      This sure is an interesting concept that allows you to play your favorite game while also doing something for your health. What do you think of this unusual setup?

      Thoorium from the Party Tortollans Discord discovered that there is no loading screen as of the latest Alpha Build when teleporting from Oribos, the main Shadowlands hub to Ardenweald and Revendreth.
      It seems Blizzard has increased the range that triggers a loading screen because if you use the Oribos portal to Ardenweald and Revendreth, you will receive no loading screen, but your character is unable to move for a short duration before the textures load.
      This does not work the other way around and you will get a really short loading screen when teleporting from Ardenweald and Revendreth back to Oribos.
      We're not exactly sure if this is just an early iteration of the system and the devs intend to make moving between the new zones instant, but teleporting to and from Bastion does not currently work that way.

    • By Stan
      The Optional Crafting Reagents system has been updated again, and it seems we'll be able to specify both Secondary Stats on crafted gear in Shadowlands.
      Optional Crafting Reagents allow you to customize the final output of an item craft. Blizzard increased the number of Optional Crafting Reagent slots to four (up from 3) in the latest Alpha build. The new slot allows you to specify a second Secondary Stat, meaning that the crafted item will have Stamina + Primary Stat (Int/Str/Agi) and two secondary stats of your choice.

      Blizzard also moved Elethium Setting (used to add sockets to gear) from Slot 2 that is used to specify Secondary Stats to the Bonus Effect slot.

      Recap of Optional Crafting Reagents
      Crafted gear can be modified with Optional Crafting Reagents in Shadowlands. Each slot enhances your item in a different way and there are four available slots:
      Slot 1 increases the item level of a crafted item; Slot 2 specifies a Secondary Stat of a crafted item; Slot 3 adds a bonus effect to a crafted item; Slot 4 (NEW) allows you to specify a second Secondary Stat of a crafted item. Slot 1: Increase Item Level

      Here come some more PvP adjustments, as Corrupted Glad Spite and Breach get tweaked, along with the Versatile Corruption Effect, Reaping the Flames, Conflict and Strife and the Mistweaver Chrysalis talent.
      PvP Tuning (source)
      We’re working on a set of PvP tuning changes that will go live with scheduled weekly maintenance (early on June 9 in this region). This is what we’re currently testing:
      Items
      Corrupted Gladiator's Spite can once again stack more quickly when multiple Corrupted Gladiator’s Spite trinkets are used against a target. Void Portal summoned by Corrupted Gladiator's Breach is now slightly larger and easier to interact with when there are nearby units. Corruption Effects
      Versatile ’s effectiveness has been reduced by 33% when engaged in combat with enemy players. Azerite Essences
      Reaping Flames (Major – Rank 3) no longer activates on player-controlled targets such as pets, totems, or guardians. Resolved an issue that prevented Conflict and Strife (Major – Rank 2) effect from providing additional defensive benefit from versatility under the effects of certain class stuns. Monk
      Mistweaver Chrysalis (PvP Talent) now reduces the cooldown of Life Cocoon by 25 seconds (was 45 seconds). As always, we’ll let you know if there are any further changes to be made, or adjustments to those above, and we’ll report the final live changes in our Hotfixes Update.
      Thanks!
