7.2 Hotfixes: April 4th

Recommended Posts

E39l7tX.png

 

A whole new batch of Broken Shore fixes and additions, the most prominent being that we're getting grapple points and the Sentinax CD has been lowered by 2 minutes! There's a bunch more Sentinax changes, as well as nerfs to Agronox in the Cathedral of Eternal Night.

Broken Shore

  • Our Valarjar allies have deployed grapple points in key locations on Broken Shore.
  • Broken Shore Rare Elite icons will now appear on the Broken Shore map even when the player is not currently in the Broken Shore.
  • Creatures other than Rare Elites and Sentinax Lieutenants no longer drop Nethershards for players who are in a raid group.
  • Rare Elites now fewer Sentinax Beacons.
  • Portal enemies should now drop their beacon type much more often.
  • Sentinax Lieutenants should drop multiple beacons for every player, allowing a quick restart after the break.
  • Sentinax Lieutenants now drop many more Nethershards when slain.
  • Sentinax cool-down time lowered to 3 minutes (was 5 minutes).
    • Developers’ notes: These changes are aimed at aligning the pacing of the Sentinax area without significantly changing the rewards. Upgraded portals should feel more special, portal beacons more scarce, and the final boss for each round of Sentinax activity should be a more welcome sight. Since tapping rules and behaviors of large raids of players don’t present a good experience for nearby parties of five or fewer, and especially solo players who might come along, the change to drops for raid groups is intended to allow everyone more opportunities to tap enemies.

Classes

Dungeons and Raids

  • (Hotfix in testing) Creatures in Mythic Keystone dungeons that do not proc Bolstering on death should also no longer summon Explosive Orbs.
  • Corrected the Premade Group Finder difficulty display from "Mythic+" to "Mythic Keystone", for consistency and easier searching.
  • Cathedral of Eternal Night
    • Agronox
      • Succulent Lashers now have significantly less health in Mythic difficulty.
      • Succulent Secretion now does much less damage in Mythic difficulty.
      • Poisonous Spores now hits for slightly less, and is limited to 5 stacks in Heroic and Mythic difficulties.
      • Fulminating Lashers can now be stunned or snared.

Good, now people can stop going apeshit about bodyguards when they were never the problem to begin with.

nothing about the Challenge yet?

If you're hoping for a nerf don't hold your breath. Pretty sure it's playing as intended.

^ This...  Challenges are designed as a challenge.  Up to this point Blizzard hasn't produced "challenging solo content" (imo) for several expansions, increasingly catering to the playerbase that wants instant gratification.  Don't get me wrong, I personally wish the challenges were easier, but I'm glad they're not.  They're also tuned for higher item levels such as 900+ or higher.  

The challenges are designed to test your limits and your ability to know you're class.  How to react in certain situations and how quickly you can react in those situations.  Knowing which builds work best in what situations, as well as knowing that changing one talent may not be ideal for a "group" environment but may be just the key change to pushing past the current obstacle.

For the challenges being the way they are I actually applaud Blizzard.  They finally put something back into the game that gives the sense of accomplishment that has faded into black over so many years.

Yes, sense of accomplishment. Forcing players into group play with strangers, not so much. But it's all designed to get 5 or more people to pay for progression than to allow solo players to progress, because it's about the dollars bottom line. Making something near impossible for one person (outside of dungeons or raids) is ridiculous.

      Blizzard plans to deploy a fix in the coming days for Ineffable Truth and its interaction with Fist of Justice (and similar abilities) that are causing more than intended amounts of cooldown reduction.
      (Source)
      We think we’ve found a way to fix a bug, and we’re planning to deploy the fix in the next day or two.
      The bug is with the Corruption Effect Ineffable Truth and its interaction with abilities like Fist of Justice causing more than the intended amounts of cooldown reduction.
      The hotfix will make it so the flat cooldown reduction provided by Fist of Justice (and similar abilities) will not be unintentionally increased by effects that increase your cooldown rate (such as Ineffable Truth).
      We’ll confirm that the fix is live in our hotfixes update posts.

      We have some interesting statistics to take a look at today, as redditor Quasiwave created an infographic looking at population data for both factions, the most popular races and classes, as well as a (somewhat less relevant/accurate) "most commonly paired race/class combos" diagonal. There's not that much shocking info in there, with Blood Elves being staggeringly popular for the Horde and Night Elves and Humans for the Alliance, but it's interesting to see all the stats anyway.

      Now, the numbers can never be exact (or even close to it), as Blizzard doesn't share that kind of data anymore, but Quasiwave took the next best thing, as the data was taken from Warcraft Realms and features 300,000 characters (not unique players).

      Here's some more info on the methods used by the author himself and you can check out the reddit thread for even more statistics debate on the methods used, whether it's a realistic representation, and just how accurate or not those diagonal boxes are.

      We're back to small hotifxes, as today's have only one actually, with the N'Zoth fight getting that multiple Spike Tentacle cast on the same player bug sorted out.

      Chromie is casually chilling on her hourglass near embassies in Stormwind and Orgrimmar, allowing players to pick an expansion/timeline they would like for leveling from 10 to 50 before heading to Shadowlands.
      New players that have not played through Battle for Azeroth and reached level 120 yet with at least one character won't be eligible for this option and must play Battle for Azeroth by default when Shadowlands goes live.
      Any subsequent characters you create will be able to pick from the following timelines for leveling:
      Kalimdor & Eastern Kingdoms
      Deathwing's emergence from Deepholm altered Azeroth's landscape forever and weakened the veil between this world and the elemental planes. Deathwing won't know what hit him!

      Outland
      The Dark Portal has once again opened, and the demons of the Burning Legion are advancing on Azeroth! Make sure their plans have a rather... Azerothian-sized setback!

      Northrend
      The tragic fall of Arthas Menethil and his ascension to the frozen throne as the Lich King is a moment in history that has permanently left a lingering scar across all Azeroth. Stopping the Lich King would really put the Scourge's plan on ice.

      Pandaria
      An ancient and mysterious land shrouded in fog for over ten thousand years appeared due to the events of the Cataclysm, and its people could really use the help of an adventurer like you. Going back to Pandaria is a great way to see that life is worth savoring!

      Draenor
      The orcish clans had a very unfortunate fate in our timeline, but the meddling of Garrosh Hellscream brought forth a force that threatened the very existence of all life on Azeroth--the Iron Horde. Travel back through time and meet the orcish clans and the draenei for the first time... again!

      Broken Isles
      The Burning Legion sought to conquer Azeroth and enslave its world soul and now that the Tomb of Sargeras has been reopened, they advance on our world. History will remember that you stood between the Legion and annihilation!

      You can return and talk to Chromie to select a different timeline whenever you feel like it.
      There is also a whirly screen visual and clock ticking sound when you select a timeline.


      Chromie also has some cool replies to go with your expansion choice:
      Vanilla/Cataclysm: "Who would have thought someone named Deathwing would bring about so much destruction?" Outland: "You look quite prepared!" Northrend: "Do not exercise restraint when showing your great power to the Scourge." Pandaria: "Whatever you do, do not get between a Pandaren and their brew. It'll be unbearably painful if you do!" Draenor: "If a scary orc offers you something to drink, you probably want to say no." Broken Isles: "If you find a powerful weapon, just make sure it isn't corrupted by the Burning Legion or Old Gods, okay?" Note that timeline icons are currently messed up on Alpha.
      Chromie Time allows you to select an expansion/timeline for leveling in Shadowlands.
