A new round of hotfixes, bringing a few class changes, is now live. Let's check them out!

Most classes received some tweaks today. Moreover, Mists of Pandaria world bosses Galleon and Oondasta will now respawn every 15 minutes, making it easier to farm them for their respective mounts. Here are the notes:

August 1


Hotfixes

Classes

Death Knight

  • Clawing Shadows damage reduced by 25%. PvP damage unchanged.
  • Scourge Strike now deals both physical and shadow damage to multiple targets when the Unholy Death Knight is standing in their own Death and Decay.

Druid

  • Displacer Beast will apply its speed buff even if Dash is active (they do not stack).
  • Fixed a bug which allowed certain macros to bypass the cooldown on returning to the same Shapeshift form you just shifted out of.

Hunter

  • Raptor Strike will now correctly apply Viper Sting or Scorpid Sting based on the talent chosen.
  • Dragonsfire Grenade now deals damage starting on impact.
  • Binding Shot now gives the affected target immunity from Binding Shot for 10 seconds, as intended.
  • The tooltip for Aspect of the Eagle has been corrected to reflect the bonus the spell provides. In addition, the bonus provided by Aspect of the Eagle now stacks with mastery.

Mage

  • (Work in progress) Flame Patch damage has been significantly reduced. A previous hotfix to solve a bug with Flame Patch not dealing damage while the Mage was casting effectively increased its performance, and today’s change returns it to approximately the intended performance level.

Monk

  • Blackout Kick should not have a cooldown for Windwalker Monks at any level.
  • Blackout Strike’s cooldown is now correctly reduced by Haste.

Paladin

  • The tooltip for Judgment no longer incorrectly states that it hits 2 additional targets for paladins without Greater Judgment.
  • Shield of the Righteous is now available at level 24.

Warlock

  • Phantom Singularity damage has been doubled.
  • Rain of Fire should no longer close your loot window when it does damage.

Warrior

  • Whirlwind now hits the correct number of extra targets when modified by Meat Cleaver.
  • Focused Rage is now learned at level 44 (was 52).

Garrisons

  • The Garrison Strategic Assault options should again be properly randomized from day to day.

Quests

  • During “To the Rescue!”, Brutusk should no longer stop before completing his path.
  • Linen-Wrapped Book can now be interacted with by multiple players at a time during the quest “Grandma’s Lost It Alright”.

UI

  • Lockboxes can again be opened via Pick Lock in the “will not be traded” section of the trade window.

World Bosses

  • Galleon and Oondasta now respawn after 15 minutes.

Zones

  • Many missing fish have been returned, and players can again fish in the Human, Night Elf, Orc, Tauren, Blood Elf, and Draenei starting zones.
  • Corrected an issue that could cause players in mixed-server groups to periodically warp back to recent locations (aka “rubberbanding”).

NOOOOOOOOOO THE CLAWING SHADOWS NERF!!!!!!! we knew it was coming. BUT NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. i don't want to actually follow class mechanics. even then why no pvp nerf? it was probably more devastating there.

This supports my conspiracy theory that blizz will never let DK's be top dps again XD. Hero class get to be strong for their intro expansion and never again. At least this time we had fun for a week instead of the two days we had when HFC launched XD.

The judgement info was wrong after all... I swore no additional damage was ticking.  Guess I was right. 

Although there were times that I swore I had two targets tagged with the debuff.  Apparently upon that assumption I was NOT right.

...wait, what? Since when does it do that? Rampage and Bloodthirst are affected by Meat Cleaver, not Whirlwind. Whirlwind *procs* Meat Cleaver.

I know this wasn't Icy-veins wording, but please correct me if I'm missing something...

The whirlwind and meat cleaver interaction has to be a typo. I do know i bug reported blood thirst and raging blow because they were not getting their extra hits in from meat cleaver.

      A look at Patch 7.2's most crucial aspects for returning players and alt-friendliness - Artifact Knowledge, gearing and leveling.
      Artifact Knowledge
      Is the rate at which you gain Artifact Power. Your main goal should be to reach Artifact Knowledge Level 26 as soon as possible, because there's a significant increase in the multiplier in 7.2. If you lack Order Resources, keep in mind you can buy Order Resources Cache for Blood of Sargeras. Patch 7.2.5 added a bag with up to 4,000 Order Resources (Abundant Order Resources Cache), but we don't know what plans Blizzard has for it just yet.
      Artifact Knowledge Level 25 = 24,9000% Artifact Knowledge Level 26 = 100,000% Reaching Artifact Knowledge Level 1 - 25
      Knowledge is Power is a repeatable quest that can be turned in for 500 Order Resources up to Artifact Knowledge Level 25. If you have a main that has reached AK Level 25, you can buy Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IV for 1,000 Order Resources that can be sent to your alts to instantly reach AK Level 20. If you boost your AK Level with the research compendium to a certain level, the last 5 Artifact Knowledge Levels must be reached by repeating the Knowledge is Power (2,500 Order Resources) With AK Level cap being increased up to 50, you'll be able to buy additional compendiums At AK Level 30: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-V At AK Level 35: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-VI At AK Level 40: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-VII At AK Level 45: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-VIII At AK Level 50: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IX Example: Let's assume you've got AK Level 25 on your main and can purchase a compendium that will instantly teach your alt AK Level 25 Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IV.  Using it will make your alt have AK 20, but the last 5 levels have to be reached, by repeating Knowledge is Power five times. Artifact Knowledge Level 25+
      At this time, you will no longer be able to continue your research You need to start and finish Assault on Broken Shore to be able to research again After you finish the Assault, the accept the "Seeking Lost Knowledge" quest at Deliverance Point Once finished, return to your Order Hall and turn in Delivering Lost Knowledge You can now continue your Artifact Knowledge Research (Discovered Lost Knowledge) and don't forget to learn AK Level 26 by consuming Empowered Elven Tome in your inventory Gear
      Another interesting aspect for returning players and alts is gear. Patch 7.2 makes gearing up super fast.
      Crafted Gear & Obliterum
      The Obliterum Forge is now available to everyone and Obliterum has never been cheaper Crafted items have ilvl 835 Obliterum can upgrade items up to ilvl 875 Dauntless Items
      Discover an item appropriate for your specialization with ilvl 850+ Can be purchased from Warmage Kath'leen for 400 Nethershards each (e.g. Dauntless Hood) you shouldn't be really spending Nethershards on them, because they drop in Demon Assault Scenarios and from all Broken Shore content (bags, caches, mobs, the Sentinax) Demon Assaults
      Check the Broken Isles map periodically for Demon Assaults. Not only are they a great source of experience and Nethershards, you'll receive Dauntless tokens and epic quality gear from the last boss Dungeons
      Normal dungeons drop ilvl 825+ Heroic dungeons drop ilvl 845+ Timewalking drop ilvl 855+ Mythic dungeons drop ilvl 865+ Grandiose Armor Kits
      World Quest rewards (Farseer's Grandiose Armor Kit) that instantly upgrade items from your Order Hall Set to ilvl 870. Relinquished Items
      Discovers an item appropriate for your loot specialization with an ilvl 880+ Relinquished items (e.g. Relinquished Relic) can be purchased from Thaumaturge Vashreen for 5,000 Nethershards each The items have a chance to contain a Legendary item, so if you're a freshly-leveled 110 and would like to slot target your Legendary items, Relinquished items are your safest bet World Quests
      Broken Isles World Quest rewards now scale up to ilvl 865 World Bosses
      When Nether Disruptor's up, you'll have access to Broken Shore World Bosses that drop ilvl 900+ loot. Don't forget to bring a Seal of Broken Fate for bonus rolls. Leveling
      Mostly revolves around the Armies of Legionfall reputation grind, more information can be found in our guide.
      Focus your effort to unlock flying at least on one of your characters (Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part Two) Flying's account-wide and once unlocked, you can use it on any character (even at Level 100) Flying significantly speeds up leveling Another great source of experience and Nethershards are Demon Assaults! Always check whether they're up!

      Patch 7.2 added several new Warlock Pet glyphs and we're looking at how to get them!
      Glyph of the Shadow Succubus
      There's a succubus standing near Tehd Shoemaker. She's called Syaith. If you're a scribe and /kiss her, you'll get Technique: Glyph of the Shadow Succubus. The trick is she only appears during the World Quest "Where There is a Whip...". You don't need to have Broken Shore World Quests unlocked to get it according to many reports from redditors that were able to find her.

      Credits go to redditor Sonotmethen
      Here are some tips from redditors!
      Comment from discussion Scribs can get Glyph of the Shadow Succubus for free today!. It seems you don't even need to be max level or have Inscription maxed out to get the pattern. Comment from discussion Scribs can get Glyph of the Shadow Succubus for free today!. Glyph of the Fel Succubus
      Technique: Glyph of the Fel Succubus seems to be a random drop from Cathedral of Eternal Night.
      The current version of the Fel Succubus is bugged (thanks to @Plaguestorm for pointing out), which results in a much weaker version of the regular Succubus pet in terms of damage output. It's advised not to use it until the issues get hotfixed.
      Comment from discussion Protip: Glyph of Shadow Succubus is obtainable right now..
      Glyph of Wrathguard
      Technique: Glyph of Wrathguard can be purchased from the Armies of Legionfall Quartermaster Warmage Kath'leen for 2,500 Nethershards.

      A lot of players look back fondly on the days of Vanilla, but what if we were too look back even further, let's say into the Nintendo Entertainment System era, and see what the game would be like then? Rkade Soup went ahead and made that alternate reality possible, perhaps with the help of Kairoz, and shared this great 8 bit re-imagining.
