We're back to daily hotfixes it seems, as Frost Mages get some changes and Priests and Rogues receive some minor changes as well. Gul'dan get some tending to as well, the Tavern Crawl gets cancelled and there's some more PvP DH, Druid, Hunter, Monk, Priest and Rogue changes.

Classes

  • Mage
    • Frost
    • Brain Freeze procs gained while you already have a Brain Freeze active and unused will now be delayed slightly.
      • Developers’ notes: The delay on the second Brain Freeze will give the Mage time to use the first Brain Freeze proc. For example, the Mage might cast Frostbolt (proc Brain Freeze), then Frostbolt (proc Brain Freeze again), then instant Flurry, then Ice Lance, then Instant Flurry again, then Ice Lance.
    • Ebonbolt now travels slightly slower.
      • Developers’ notes: This allows the guaranteed Brain Freeze proc/instant Flurry cast immediately following it to land first, providing the Winter's Chill buff to that Ebonbolt. For example, the Mage might cast Frostbolt (proc Brain Freeze), then Ebonbolt, and fully use both Brain Freeze procs.
    • The first missile from a Flurry cast should now hit sooner.
      • Developers’ notes: This allows a Frostbolt or Ebonbolt cast immediately before a Brain Freeze Flurry to more consistently benefit from that Flurry's Winter's Chill effect, even if the mage isn’t standing at long range. This allows the Frost Mage who has an active Brain Freeze to cast Frostbolt/Ebonbolt, then an Instant Flurry, then Ice Lance while standing 15+ yards from the target. Previously, the Mage had to be about twice as far away.
  • Priest
    • Atonement will now heal players who are out of line of sight of the Priest.
  • Rogue
    • Agonizing Poison application no longer increases Kingsbane damage by twice the listed amount.

Dungeons and Raids

  • The Nighthold
    • Gul’dan
      • Resolved an issue that could cause Empowered Bonds of Fel to instantly detonate.

Events

  • The mages of the Kirin Tor made some arcane miscalculations when planning their Tavern Crawl.  The Tavern Crawl is cancelled.  Khadgar sends his apologies!

 

Items

  • Cache of Nightborne Treasures now correctly displays the difficulty it is associated with for non-Normal difficulties.
  • Kil'jaeden's Burning Wish should no longer be castable while Mounted or under the effect of crowd control.

Player versus Player

  • Demon Hunter
    • Rain from Above now provides a brief immunity to stun effects upon activation, rather than removing them.
  • Druid
    • Infected Wounds now reduces the movement of targets by 30% in PvP situations.
  • Hunter
    • Mending Bandage will now remove bleed effects on targets other than the Hunter.
  • Monk
    • Xuen summoned by Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger now deals 40% less damage in PvP situations.
    • Hit Combo now grants 1% damage per stack in PvP situations (was 2% per stack).
    • Heavy-Handed Strikes now stuns the target for 3 seconds (was 4 seconds).
  • Priest
    • Holy Ward no longer triggers its cooldown when a crowd control effect is prevented, and instead triggers a cooldown when Holy Ward is cast.
  • Rogue
    • Crippling Poison, Pistol Shot, and Nightblade/Night Terrors now reduce the movement of targets by 30% in PvP situations.

Previous hotfixes.

      We have another Mythic+ record on our hands, as Jdotb, Shakib, Daarkee, Marvink and Mittbitt have cleared CoS on 25+ in time! They even had a minute to spare, despite a death or two right at the end there. Congratulations!
      Here are the stats for the run and team, courtesy or Raider.io.

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a growing raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.

      We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 7/11-Heroic 11/11-Normal ABT.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
      We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for raiding the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS: YES. Will consider all, but would love to pick up a Hunter and a Mage for ranged, and add an Enhance Shaman, Windwalker Monk, or Survival Hunter for melee.
      Healers: YES. Looking to add a Holy Paladin to our healing core.
      Tank: NO. No current needs.

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you the inside picture on how we operate as a raid team.

      A first look at racial abilities and passives of Allied Races.
      If you pre-order Battle for Azeroth, you will get early access to four Allied Races. In other words, you will be able to level them up to 110 before the expansion launch. Patch 7.3.5 contains new unlock scenarios, character customization options and all assets to enable Allied Races, so it's really safe to say that they will be part of an upcoming pre-order promotion.
      Dark Iron Dwarves and Zandalari Trolls will be added to the game later. No information about their racials are currently available.
