Upcoming Purification Protocol Hotfix

Recommended Posts

44093-purification-protocol-heart-of-aze

Blizzard just announced an upcoming hotfix for Purification Protocol's major effect at rank 2. Purifying Blast Purifying Blast will no longer cause instantly killed enemies to trigger Bolstering, Bursting, or Sanguine affix effects when they die.

Update: The hotfix is now live.

We’re working on a hotfix for how this Essence works in some affix situations:

It’s a unique effect, where Purifying Blast Purifying Blast (Purification Protocol Rank 2) sometimes causes an enemy to be “Annihilated” – instantly killed. We think that’s cool and fun, however, it can be frustrating in Mythic Keystone dungeons when you sometimes need to very carefully plan for the Sanguine, Bolstering, or Bursting affixes when killing enemies.

We’ll let you know soon after the change has been made live.

      Rextroy just released a new video, where he one-shots Horde players in PvP with the help of bombs and PvP scaling.
      To make this work, Rextroy used Mantid Fire Bomb that has been nerfed since his previous video, and Azerite Grenade (usable in Kul Tiras) that makes all damage taken critical.
      You also need to have the Strength of Vigilance Essence equipped to use Vigilant Protector and increase your damage done by 50%.
      The current PvP scaling aura in WoW makes you deal more damage the worse geared you have, and Rextroy found out that the aura increased his damage done by 226% without any gear equipped.

      We've updated our guide section with guides that cover all Covenant Abilities.
      In Shadowlands, each Covenant grants you two abilities. The first ability is the same for all members of a Covenant and is called a Signature ability, the second one is class-specific.
      Signature Covenant Abilities
      The Kyrian Covenant grants you access to a Steward that gives you a Phial of Serenity that restores 15% health and removes all diseases, poisons, curses, and bleeds affecting you. On top of that, the Steward will be able to change your talents and compliment your friend. The Night Fae Covenant members can use Soulshape which increases their movement speed by 30%, transforming them into various creatures. The spell can be reactivated to teleport 10 yards forward. Members of the Necrolord Covenant have access to Fleshcraft, which makes you form a shield over 4 seconds that absorbs damage equal to 20-50% of your maximum health for two minutes. The Venthyr Covenant ability is called Door of Shadows and it teleports you a short distance. Check out our guide to all Covenant Abilities for more details!
      Class Covenant Abilities
      These are different for each class and we explain them in more detail on the pages linked below.

      We've updated our guide section with pages for Anima Powers and Torghast. Check them out!
      What Are Anima Powers?
      Anima Powers are temporary powers that your character obtains from various sources while in Torghast, Tower of the Damned in Shadowlands.
      These empower your Covenant abilities, grant you other talents on the same row, and allow for unique interactions between various abilities.
      For example, there are three interesting Mage Anima Powers that interact with Blink.
      Art of the Blinkmage removes the Mana cost and cooldown of Blink, but your Movement Speed is capped at 3 yards per second; Clouded Diamond leaves a Mirror Image behind after Blinking; Dimensional Blade instantly kills a Mawrat and grants you 3 charges of Blink. So as a Mage, you will be Blinking around through Mawrats like crazy to get extra stacks of Blink and Clouded Diamond spawns Mirror Images that deal damage for you, so it's interesting to see these wild interactions.
      It's worth noting that Anima Powers only work in Torghast and Blizzard also mentioned it's possible that some of them may be transformed into Legendary powers throughout testing. We've put up all known class-specific Anima Powers for you to check out below.
      All Anima Powers for Torghast

      Mage Anima Powers
      Rogue Anima Powers
