Achievements

  • Revealing treasure chests while scrying in Nazjatar should now reliably grant credit for Nothing To Scry About Nothing To Scry About.

Creatures and NPCs

  • Prince Erazmin's best friend, Scrappy, is now better at traveling Rustbolt to encourage the resistance. He should no longer occasionally fall through the ground.
  • Unleashed Arcanofiend’s Proximal Chaos attacks are now a bit less chaotic.
  • In Nazjatar, there are now fewer slugs in rocks. Eww.

Items

  • Epic gems with a secondary stat now provide 50 of the secondary stat (was 60).
    • Developers’ note: The power increase of Epic gems over Rare gems is too large, putting players in situations where the right choice is to use a much lower iLvl item with a socket over a Titanforged upgrade. We’re making this change before Season 3 begins to limit the number of affected players.
  • Fixed a bug that caused some punchcards in the to be labeled "Titanforged" at a lower item level than intended. (No items were harmed in the making of this bugfix.)
  • Chain Ignitercoil Chain Ignitercoil is no longer sold by vendors in Mechagon.
  • Secret Fish can now be sold, and the sounds they make have been fixed. Don’t tell anyone.
  • Ionized Minnow Ionized Minnows can now be stored in the Reagent Bank, as well as Engineering and Fishing Bags.
  • The following now automatically use reagents stored in your reagent bank:
    • Crafting all Junkyard Tinkering blueprints.
    • Contributing to construction projects.
    • Using the Charging Station to charge Empty Energy Cells.
  • Heart of Azeroth Heart of Azeroth
    • The Seething Rage Seething Rage buff from Blood of the Enemy (Essence) will now properly modify the critical damage dealt by any summoned units, such as those summoned by a Shaman or a Monk's Storm, Earth, and Fire Storm, Earth, and Fire.
    • Classes with pets that use energy will no longer cause their pets to gain an increased energy regeneration rate when using Memory of Lucid Dreams (Essence).

Missions and Followers

  • Fixed an issue where some players could receive the Zem'lan's Lost Treasure Map Zem'lan's Lost Treasure Map mission a second time with no loot. The mission is now removed if it has already been completed.
  • Missions with the Deep Sea mechanic now have a base time of 24 hours and are properly countered by Naval Expert.

Player vs. Player

  • “Call to Arms: Nazjatar” can now properly be completed by slaying the opposing faction in Nazjatar.
  • Battle for Nazjatar
    • Additional improvements have been made to this event. It should now become active more often, while still ensuring that there are mix of Horde and Alliance players present.
    • Factions that control more capture points within the Battle for Nazjatar event will now yield more Victory Points. This works similarly to Arathi Basin or the Battle for Gilneas.

Quests

  • Reduced the amount of quest items needed to complete many Requisition quests and Bounty daily quests in Nazjatar.
  • "The Reclamation Rig" construction project will now more reliably give achievement credit to all players who contributed to its construction, even if further away when it is completed.
  • Players can now see Venture Co. Transport Balloons while "Taking The Air Out".
  • “The Doppel Gang” should now reliably give credit to all players who participate.
  • Avarius should now spawn as expected once all the Brinestone shards have been placed.
  • The Zoatroid Harvesters required for "Dirty Dozen" now path better, and are more tap friendly, with appropriate health.

Support

  • Fixed an issue preventing some players from submitting tickets in-game.
  • Fixed an issue that caused some tickets submitted in-game to incorrectly show as submitted via web.

World Quests

  • A recent change in diet has made the chitin on glimmershell crab shells more resistant to breaking during combat, resulting in Hefty Glimmershells of usable quality dropping more frequently when you’re in "A Steamy Situation".
  • The spell intended to recover your corpse during “Infestation of Madness” no longer incorrectly sends your corpse to Nazjatar.

World

  • Players should no longer experience phasing issues around the Tidestone in Nazjatar.

      Here are some useful tips if you are leveling alts through the Threads of Fate system.
      The Threads of Fate system allows you to ignore the main story and level up your character by doing various objectives and completing world quests.
      You should first visit every area to accept all campaign quests if you plan on leveling through spamming dungeons.

      Each dungeon gives you 10% toward the progress bar.
      You should also focus on progressing through the quests simultaneously, not one by one, if you are mainly leveling through dungeons. 
      Reddit user Kerotos summarized how much XP you're going to get via dungeons.
      Reddit user Lucasion pointed out that Threads of Fate is available for alts to switch to at any time until your character hits 60, meaning at any point, you can choose to skip the rest of the story. However, if you hit 60 while doing the story, the Fatescriber no longer gives you the option to swap to the Threads of Fate system, so your alt becomes locked into finishing the story.
      If you are leveling an alt through the storyline, make sure you return to Oribos and swap to the Threads of Fate BEFORE hitting level 60!
      Remember that choosing Threads of Fate is PERMANENT and cannot be undone, but if you choose replay storyline, you can swap to Threads at any time.

      Blizzard reported on Twitter that they are currently under a DDoS attack which may result in high latency and disconnections for some players.
      Some servers in the EU region are currently under fire and Blizzard are working to mitigate the issue.

      Blizzard hasn't nerfed BfA emissaries, yet it seems, and they still reward 2,000 gold when completed.
      If you want to make some quick gold, check out if any of the currently available BfA emissaries reward it.

      Reddit user imBlueMercy reported that even supplies still reward 4,000 gold, as shown in the image linked below.

      A new meta for Mythic+ is emerging, as Priests are capable of mind controlling mobs in dungeons and make them fall to their deaths, leading to efficient skips.
      Here is a Priest mind controlling trash mobs in Mists of Tirna Scithe. There are no invisible walls, so it is possible to make the mobs jump to their death.
      One Reddit user claims this also works for all mobs in Halls of Atonement up to the first boss.

      Do you think this will get hotfixed soon?
