1 post in this topic

The first hotfixes for the new patch are in! A lot of PvP stuff as well as M+ questing issues, among many smaller fixes.

 

New patch, new problems that need to be fixed, but Blizz was on the case very quickly as we already have the first hotfixes of 7.1! A lot of fixes, predominately in the PvP area, with the biggest one being Kara attunement and the weekly bonus event being completable in M+ dungeons.

Blizzard LogoOctober 25th

Bonus Event

  • Completing a dungeon on any Mythic Keystone difficulty will now count towards progress on the weekly Bonus Event quest, "Emissary of War".

Classes

Druid

  • Luffa Wrappings should once again function correctly for non-Feral Druids.
  • Prowl should once again have the correct stealth effectiveness.
  • Mass Entanglement should now reliably chain to nearby targets.

Paladin

  • (Retribution) Fixed a bug preventing the Sword of Light passive from being fully calculated into baseline damage.

Shaman

  • (Restoration) Lava Burst should correctly deal a critical strike against targets with Flame Shock, at level 20 or higher.

Warrior

  • (Arms) Fixed a bug preventing the Seasoned Soldier passive from being fully calculated into baseline damage.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Quest Items related to Karazhan attunement now drop in Mythic Keystone dungeons in addition to Mythic difficulty dungeons.

Game Client

  • (Work in progress) Sheathing and unsheathing a weapon should no longer cause the game to crash.

PvP

  • Warden Towers temporarily rewarded 150 Honor. They have been convinced to once again reward 300 Honor.
  • Honor rewards from Tol Barad have been reduced by 50%.
  • Class Adjustments
    • Relentless reduces crowd control duration by 20% (was 25%).
      • Developers’ Notes: We feel Relentless is over-represented in a lot of situations, so we’re slightly reducing its effect.
    • Demon Hunter
      • Fixed a bug that was preventing Imprison modified by Detainment from being removed by Divine Shield and Ice Block.
      • Fury of the Illidari no longer causes reduced damage in PvP.
    • Mage
      • (Fire) Stamina reduced by 10% in PvP.
      • (Frost) Stamina reduced by 10% in PvP
        • Developers’ Notes: Fire and Frost Mages have felt a bit too tanky.
      • (Frost) Deep Shatter increases the damage of Frostbolt by 150% (was 200%).
    • Monk
      • (Mistweaver) Surge of Mist now causes Enveloping Mist to incur an 8 second cooldown (was 6 seconds).
        • Developers’ Notes: Mistweavers Monks have often relied on Soothing Mist to do most of their healing. Now, when choosing Surge of Mist, you may have to cast another healing spell during the Enveloping Mists cooldown.
      • (Mistweaver) Counteract magic increases the healing of Renewing Mist by 125% (was 150%).
        • Developers’ Notes: Counteract Magic has felt a bit too strong against damage-over-time compositions.
    • Paladin
      • Avenging Crusader now properly increases the cooldown recovery rate of Judgment and Crusader Strike.
      • Avenging Crusader no longer increases the cooldown recovery rate of Tyr's Deliverance.
    • Priest
      • (Discipline) Searing Light increases the damage of Smite by 15%, down from 30%.
        • Developers’ Notes: The Discipline Priest is intended to be an offensive healer, but we feel they were over-performing in 2v2 Arena.
    • Rogue
      • Agility reduced by 10% in PvP.
      • Stamina reduced by 5% in PvP.
        • Developers’ Notes: Rogues are intended to be strong, yet vulnerable to focused-fire. We feel they have too much survivability while dealing too much damage with both utility and survivability, so we’re toning them down.
      • (Assassination) System Shock duration reduced to 2 seconds (was 4 seconds).
      • (Subtlety) Stamina reduced by 5% in PvP.
      • (Assassination, Outlaw) Stamina reduced by 15% in PvP.
    • Shaman
      • (Enhancement) Agility reduced by 10%.
    • Warlock
      • (Demonology) Doom, Doubled now increases the damage of Doom by 33% in PvP situations.
      • (Demonology) Grimoire of Synergy increases the Warlock's and Pet's damage by 30% in PvP situations.
      • (Demonology) Implosion damage reduced by 20% in PvP situations.
    • Warrior
      • Bladestorm now deals full damage in PvP situations.
        • Developers’ Notes: Bladestorm is intended to be a strong damage cooldown for the Arms Warrior. In Legion Beta testing, Arms Warriors felt too strong, so we reduced the damage Bladestorm did in PvP. We feel we’re back to a place where returning it to full damage makes sense.
      • Execute now deals 15% more damage in PvP situations.
        • Developers’ Notes: Execute is designed to be a signature strength of the Warrior, and should always be the right choice on targets within Execute range in PvP. We’ve found that there are some situations where that wasn’t true, so we’re increasing the damage of Execute to make it always the right choice.

Quests

  • Players should no longer fail to get credit for completing world boss World Quests.
  • Players with a full inventory should now be able to complete “Edict of the God-King” and accept “Unwanted Evidence” after defeating God-King Skovald in Halls of Valor.
  • The quest drops for “Uncovering Orders” should now come from the final boss in each of the three named dungeons, Assault on Violet Hold, Black Rook Hold, and Vault of the Wardens.

World

  • Bloodgazer Falcosaurs should now respawn more quickly.

      World Quests have had their rewards updated, demons are invading various parts of the Broken Shore and reputations with Legion factions beyond Exalted yield additional rewards.
      World Quests
      Had their rewards bumped up to item level 860+.

      Demon Assaults
      On PTRs, zones are periodically under attack and they switch every 3 hours, but it may be only to speed up testing. Once you zone in, you'll auto-accept the following quests if the zone you enter is under attack, for example Assault on Val'sharah. You have to complete 6 invasions in that area. Assaults are basically the same as World Quests. When a zone is invaded, no World Quests are available.
      An invasion is indicated by a big logo on the world map.

      Invasion quests also have different icons than regular World Quests.

      Demons are all over the place. You will be closing portals, killing various enemies including commanders.

      Flight Master Mount Change
      The flying mount used for transport across the Broken Shore has changed.


      Reputation Paragon
      If you've reached Exalted with Legion factions, every 20,000 additional reputation you'll get will award additional caches. We don't know if the caches have an increased chance to give you a Legendary or notable item upgrades, but let's hope the rewards are better, because you don't collect 20,000 reputation in the blink of an eye and getting an item level 835 that ends as a Chaos Crystal is all but rewarding. It's also worth noting that saving all reputation items for 7.2 isn't a bad idea as they will come in handy. Obtaining 10 caches rewards the Paragon of the Broken Isles achievement.

      The first micro-holiday, Call of the Scarab, brings with it a gold-making opportunity. Selling meat can be profitable.
      Warlord Gorchuk and Master Sergeant Fizzlebolt are Meat vendors and you can find them near the Scarab Gong in Silithus for the duration of the event. They allow the turn-in of 20 pieces of various meat for 20 Alliance Qiraji Commendations // 20 Horde Qiraji Commendations per turn-in for your faction.
      The following meat can be farmed and resold on the Auction House.

      Pet Battle Dungeons are here. So far, only Wailing Caverns are available for testing. It's a scenario with 7 stages and increasing difficulty, where you fight your way up to get an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone and eventually, Damp Pet Supplies.
      Pet Battle Dungeons
      If you have at least one level 25 pet, go to Dalaran and talk to Serr'ah. She will offer a quest called A Call from the Caverns.  Teleport to Orgrimmar and go to Crossroads. There you'll have to find Muyani. She offers another quest Wailing Critters, which rewards Ultimate Battle-Training Stone. Talk to her again and you will enter a scenario (Scenario: Wailing Critters) with 7 stages. Wailing Caverns is the only pet battle dungeon that's currently available and it functions like a scenario. You will be fighting pets and the difficulty increases as you progress through stages. You are able to Revive Battle Pets inside dungeons. When you complete the quest and turn it in, you will be offered another weekly quest, but this time, you won't be able to revive or heal your pets - Pet Battle Challenge: Wailing Caverns. When complete, you'll get Damp Pet Supplies. The bag contains some of the recently added pets. New Pets
      A list of new pets that have been added in 7.2 can be found here. Pet Battle Dungeons Screenshots

      Patch 7.2 adds a new dungeon called Cathedral of Eternal Night. Drops from existing dungeons had an item level bump, Karazhan has been split into two and Vantus Runes are coming for Mythic+ dungeons.
      Dungeon Changes
      Health of enemies inside dungeons has been increased. To compensate, the item level of items that drop inside dungeons has been increased. Normal difficulty - item level 825+ Heroic difficulty - item level 845+ Mythic difficulty - item level 865+ The changes are really good as dungeons will stay relevant throughout the expansion. In previous expansions, dungeons were only used for initial gearing and for the daily dungeon bonus. Karazhan has been split into Lower / Upper Karazhan and can be now accessed via Dungeon Finder. Mythic+ Dungeons
      Are receiving Vantus Runes in 7.2. You can use one per dungeon / week.
      Vantus Rune: Black Rook Hold Vantus Rune: Cathedral of Eternal Night Vantus Rune: Court of Stars Vantus Rune: Darkheart Thicket Vantus Rune: Eye of Azshara Vantus Rune: Halls of Valor Vantus Rune: Maw of Souls Vantus Rune: Neltharion's Lair Vantus Rune: Return to Karazhan (Lower) Vantus Rune: Return to Karazhan (Upper) Vantus Rune: Vault of the Wardens Vantus Rune: Violet Hold Vantus Rune: The Arcway Tomb of Sargeras Vantus Runes
      Vantus Rune: Demonic Inquisition Vantus Rune: Fallen Avatar Vantus Rune: Fel Titan Vantus Rune: Goroth Vantus Rune: Harjatan the Bludger Vantus Rune: Kil'jaeden Vantus Rune: Mistress Sassz'ine Vantus Rune: Sisters of the Moon Vantus Rune: The Desolate Host Vantus Rune: Tomb of Sargeras What do you think about Vantus Runes being added to Mythic+ dungeons?
