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.

      The first three bosses are now available for testing and we made a lot of screenshots for our zone preview of the new areas inside Antorus the Burning Throne raid.
      For Antorus lore, check out our Pantheon thread about the involvement of Titans in the raid.

      Area Leading to the 2nd Boss - Hounds of Sargeras

      Admiral Svirax Area (3rd Boss Area)

      LFR Wing 2 (Portal Keeper Hasabel Area)
      This zone has the Eonar zone portal to the left where Magni's fighting demons.

      Refuge of Life - Eonar the Lifebinder Fight Area
      The 9th screenshot seems to be the trapped Essence of Eonar.

      More attempted fixing of issues with "jump" abilities today, Destro Locks' Immolate, ToV items for Fury and Enh hidden artifact skins, as well as some Priest PvP get fixes as well.
      July 27 (source)
      Classes
      (Hotfix in testing) Fixed a bug with Heroic Leap, Havoc's Metamorphosis, and Infernal Strike where they would sometimes fail to cast but still trigger their cooldown if the player became Rooted at the same time as the spell was cast. Warlock Destruction Immolate’s Soul Shard generation should now function as intended and match the tooltip. Dungeons and Raids
      Trial of Valor Helya, Odyn Corrected an issue that prevented the items for the hidden Fury or Enhancement artifact appearances from dropping when Personal Loot was selected. Player versus Player
      Priest Holy (Hotfix in testing) The final healing and damage of Ray of Hope can no longer be prevented by Smoke Bomb. Previous Hotfixes

      As promised, Alveona, Exorsus' guild master, has posted his opinions on the Tomb of Sargeras Mythic race on reddit. He goes really in-depth not only on the hot topic of Kil'jaeden, but the rest of the raid as well - from the difficulty curve, to what he thinks went wrong with the instance, hardcore raiding mythbusting and more.
      As you can imagine he's not too thrilled with the whole thing, but the post is well explained and we can get a feeling of what their frustrations on the boss(es) were much better. It's definitely worth a read if you're interested in the perspective of top-end raiders and in what tuning of a new raid looks like in the extremely early days of a new (Mythic) tier. Here are some highlights from the post:
