Patch 8.1 Hotfixes: February 26th

Recommended Posts

42256-patch-81-hotfixes-february-20th.jp
 

Today's hotfixes bring nerfs for Normal Stormwall Blockade, visual changes for Jaina's abilities on all difficulties as well as the already announced G.M.O.D. mount dropping off of Jaina on LFR. In non-raid changes we have the Resto Druid and Bonded Souls PvP changes that were also announced already, as well as a fix for Ret Palas Hammer of Reckoning.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Battle of Dazar’alor
    • Stormwall Blockade
      • Soul of the Tidepriest/Tidepriestess now waits 15 seconds before casting their empowerment spells on Normal difficulty (was 5 seconds).
      • Sea Storm's cast time has been increased to 4 seconds on Normal difficulty (was 2.5 seconds).
      • Sea Storm initial AOE damage reduced by 20% on Normal difficulty.
    • Lady Jaina Proudmoore
      • Glacial Shards border visibility increased, and move speed decreased by roughly 20%.
      • Howling Winds visual intensity lowered by 10%.
      • The G.M.O.D. mount now has a chance to drop on completion of the final wing on Raid Finder difficulty.

Items

  • Heart of Azeroth
    • Fixed an issue causing Endless Hunger Endless Hunger to repeatedly consume the essence of certain corpses.

Player versus Player

  • Heart of Azeroth
    • Bonded Souls Bonded Souls healing reduced by 85% when engaged in combat with enemy players (was 50%).
    • Developers’ notes: We’ve identified that Bonded Souls has been providing too much healing in an arena environment when multiple members of a team equip the trait.
  • Druid
    • Restoration
      • Focused Growth Focused Growth now reduces the mana cost of Lifebloom Lifebloom by 8% (was 20%).
      • Focused Growth Focused Growth now increases the healing of Lifebloom Lifebloom by 8% per stack (was 20%).
      • Developers’ notes: As we’ve monitored PvP matches since our PvP mana changes to healers and Restoration Druids, we’ve found that Lifebloom, as a source of healing, has become too-efficient. While the reduction to Focused Growth’s increased healing and mana cost savings is a sizeable change, Restoration Druids have a wide variety of well-performing PvP talent options to fit in its place.

What? Normal and Heroic uses a flex system. If your guild is killing Mythic Jaina then you're in like 0.01% and devoting development resources to making it more interesting for that group would be silly.

Flex only goes down to ten, and we're getting close to that now. it was just a joke, but still a bit sad.

      N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth is a new item discovered on 8.3 PTR which transforms you into a Servant of N'Zoth and lets you kill members of your own faction in Kul Tiras and Zandalar if you're into PvP and have War Mode on.
      To receive N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth, you must first turn on War Mode and defeat 10 members of the opposing faction without dying. The subsequent quest provides you with N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth and the goal is to slay 10 members of your own faction without dying to receive the Servant of N'Zoth achievement which comes with the Servant of N'Zoth title and the quest also rewards the N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth toy. Other rewards are currently unknown.

      We've encountered the Talon's Vengeance faction in Legion and used Ivory Feather to collect Marks of Prey and on the Timeless Isle we used Censer of Eternal Agony to collect Bloody Coins from players back in Mists of Pandaria, so the concept isn't exactly new.

      It will be easier to acquire Nazjatar Essences in Patch 8.3 on alts. Blizzard added new Bind to Account reputation tokens which increase your rep gain with the Nazjatar factions by 250 up to Exalted.
      Mechagon already comes with a reputation-increasing item in the form of Rustbolt Resistance Insignia and instead of making Essences account-wide, Blizzard decided to implement new reputation tokens purchasable from the Nazjatar faction quartermasters. They cost 20 Prismatic Manapearls and increase your reputation with the factions by 250 each. You can buy them if you're main has reached Revered with the respective Nazjatar reputation.
      Waveswept Abyssal Conch can be purchased from Speaker Utia for 20 Prismatic Manapearls and increases your reputation with Waveblade Ankoan by 250 up to Exalted. Waveswept Abyssal Conch can be purchased from Atolia Seapearl for 20 Prismatic Manapearls and increases your reputation with the Unshackled by 250 up to Exalted. Additionally, Blizzard reduced reputation requirements from 8.2 vendor-sold Essences and you can find more details here.

      Finally Deathwing's size is getting the appropriate number of pixels to represent him as he was meant to be! We have two new AI upscaled videos to share today, starting with the into to Cataclysm, aka the Deathwing blows everything up show. There's also the ill-fated Starcraft: Ghost 3rd person shooter that was cancelled, but not before we got a pretty solid cinematic out of it, featuring the Overming, a whole lot of marines and zerg and, ofc course, Nova.

      Black Dragonscale Backpack is a cosmetic item sold by Wrathion in Patch 8.3. The cloak is actually a Wrathion-themed backpack that can be used for transmog.
      The backpack is very similar to the Vulpera Heritage Rucksack, used in the Vulpera Heritage Armor in Visions of N'Zoth.

      When you unlock Horrific Visions in the upcoming content update, you can talk to Wrathion who sells various items for Coalesced Visions and Corrupted Mementos including:
      Vessel of Horrific Visions for 10,000 Coalesced Visions; Gouged Eye of N'Zoth for 25,000 Corrupted Mementos; Black Dragonscale Backpack (new) for 40,000 Corrupted Mementos; Wicked Swarmer for 100,000 Corrupted Mementos. Related 8.3 Build 32805 News
      Veteran of the Fourth War Flavor Spell for 2nd Generation of Death Knights Vulpera Bag of Tricks Racial Mistweaver Monk Essence Changes Death Knight Eyes Update
    • By Stan
      Veteran of the Fourth War is a new spell intended for the second generation of Death Knights created in Patch 8.3. The flavor spell is in place to reflect the end of the Battle for Azeroth War Campaign in front of the Gates of Orgrimmar ([error]). It works exactly as Veteran of the Third War for existing Death Knights.
      Players who pre-ordered Shadowlands will be able to create Allied Race and Pandaren Death Knights in Visions of N'Zoth. There will be a new intro with Bolvar and Blizzard has updated their eye glow multiple times on 8.3 PTR to bring it more in line with the Lich King's eyes.
