Patch 8.2 Hotfixes: July 31st

Recommended Posts



In today's mid-sized hotfixes we have some more Azshara fixes that make the fight easier, changes to Operation: Mechagon, a nerf for Leviathan's Lure in PvP, along with the now standard essence and quest fixes and tweaks.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Azshara’s Eternal Palace
    • Fixed an issue where Charged Spear IconCharged Spear could target victims of Devotion or Army of Azshara in all difficulties.
    • Fixed an issue that caused Queen Azshara to rapidly change which way she faced in Mythic difficulty.
  • Operation: Mechagon
    • Reduced the damage from Furnace Flames by 20%.
    • Throwing Robo-Waste into the furnace now removes all stacks of Noxious Stench.
    • Reduced the spawn time between Robo-Waste drops to 12 seconds (was 15 seconds).
      • Players were attempting to defeat K.U.-J.O. on Hard Mode difficulty with full stacks of Noxious Stench. The intention is that players should be cleaning up K.U.-J.O.'s Robo-Waste periodically. These changes are to encourage that behavior.


  • Reduced the damage players take from Scrap Traps in Mechagon.
  • Fixed an issue where using the Aqueous Reliquary Aqueous Reliquary or Focused Life Anima Focused Life Anima with enough items would sometimes fail to create an Essence.
  • Heart of Azeroth
    • Fixed an issue with Purification Protocol Purification Protocol (Essence) that sometimes prevented players from gaining the damage bonus from the Rank 3 Major Slot effect.

Player versus Player


  • Heroic Warfront: The Battle for Stromgarde ” is no longer removed from the quest log when the Warfront is no longer active for the player.
  • Quests with objectives in Stormwind no longer direct players to Deeprun Tram from Ironforge.

      To better illustrate your chances of success, a recommended Item Level is displayed when selecting Layer difficulty in Patch 9.0.5.
      This quality-of-life change is really good because it can potentially decrease your chance of failing a run.

      There's also a brief description of each wing on the left side of the UI in Patch 9.0.5.
      The six Torghast wings and Twisting Corridors have different item level recommendations, as outlined below.
      Recommended Item Level for the 6 Torghast Wings
      Layer Recommended Item Level 1 Item Level 130 2 Item Level 150 3 Item Level 160 4 Item Level 165 5 Item Level 175 6 Item Level 180 7 Item Level 185 8 Item Level 195 Recommended Item Level for Twisting Corridors
      Layer Recommended Item Level 1 Item Level 170 2 Item Level 180 3 Item Level 185 4 Item Level 195 5 Item Level 200 6 Item Level 210 7 Item Level 220 8 Item Level 225

      Players who reach 40 Renown will receive 1,500 Gold from the weekly quest to gather 1,000 Anima in Patch 9.0.5.
      If you've recruited the maximum amount of Souls for your Covenant, your weekly Renown quests to rescue souls from the Maw will reward 500 Anima.
      Once players reach 40 Renown with their Covenant, the weekly quest to gather 1000 Anima will now award you with 1500 gold. Once players have recruited the maximum amount of Souls for their Covenant, your weekly quest to rescue Souls from the Maw will now award you with 500 Anima.

      The Pet Battle World Quest that rewards Animated Ulna, an item needed for Carpal, is now available on EU realms!

      Here's how the pet looks like in the game.

      “Nobody knows why all of these skeletal hands are from the left hand. Where did the right hands go?”
      You must gather 3 parts to forge the pet (Lend Me a Hand).
      Animated Ulna - A rare reward from Maldraxxus Pet Battle World Quests (currently available). Animated Radius - Purchased from Nalcorn Talsen (51/53) for 250 Polished Pet Charms. Flexing Phalanges - Looted from Skeletal Hand Fragments at 47/62 in Maldraxxus. The objects are only visible when you have both Animated Ulna and Animated Radius.  You can find more details about the pet on Warcraft Pets.

      Update: it seems the tease IS gaming related, just not WoW! Apparently the text on the script is de-blurrable and is related to Mass Effect. You can read more about it over on PC Gamer.

      This is one of those "obviously not what we hope it is, but maaaybe?" things as Henry Cavill, who was part of many discussions about who should play Arthas last year, just posted an interesting image to his Instagram, as spotted by Warchief_Hammerhands.
      This is 99.99% Witcher-related, and the caption is just a tease (whether it's actually aimed at the Arthas hype or not), but we have seen the actor actually talk about the role of the Lich King previously. In several Instagram replies to one of the many fan photoshops of himself as Arthas, Cavill did seem to show some solid interest in the role, and it all started with an emoji response to this post:
      And here's the complex response, with Blizzard getting tagged:

      He then engaged in some fan interaction, starting with a nod at the previous rumors of him being the next Bond:
      And great response to a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:

      Many have actually commented that Cavill might be a bit too old for Arthas at this point, but considering the events on 9.1 and where the story might be going, who's to say an older, post-Maw Arthas isn't in the cards? It seems like a perfect stunt commercial type thing to tease a potentially bigger project like a TV series or even movie. After all, Metzen himself approves of Cavill in the role!
      But, getting back down to earth, this seems much more Witcher-related, with Season 2 of the show  still being shot, as Covid slowed things down. The Instagram post is probably just a tease that they're still shooting the show (possibly the finale, as the script seems to be relevant) and we're just getting too excited. But why shouldn't we get excited? A Warcaft TV show is just too good of a fit, even an animated one, so any movement we can stir up there can only be positive!

      You'd think the Arms Warrior hidden artifact appearance wouldn't really be all that relevant anymore, but since we can now transmog it in any spec, Strom'kar, the Warbreaker is getting very Axe-y is definitely worth mentioning. Warriors in the US who don't yet have it should be pretty happy today as the hidden  Arcanite Bladebreaker appearance is available, so hurry! Head to your Legion Order Hall and grab the Secrets of the Axes quest from Master Smith Helgar (he's over by the Forge of Odyn) and he will give you a quest where you must duel Saurfang to earn the hidden appearance. Shadowlands brought the ability to transmog weapons in other specs to the artifacts, so this is even more worth doing, and thanks to redditor CrebTheBerc for noticing! The quest is usually up for around a day.
      You'll need to have the Arms artifact unlocked, and it might actually be worth rolling a new Warrior and going through the (skippable) Legion intro to find out if the quest is available to lower level chars, as the quest comes around very infrequently.
