Patch 8.3 Hotfixes: February 4th

Recommended Posts

48226-patch-83-hotfixes-february-3rd.jpg
 

We should first mention what today's hotfixes DON'T include, and that's the details on the just announced Corruption effect nerfs. They do show off the raid tuning that's already happened, including the Ra-den reset timer change that prevented the Warlock opener damage buff/exploit, but also nerfed the boss to compensate, Carapace also got tweaked and Mechagon and Siege got changes as well. There's also some Stormwind Horrific Vision nerfs, a lot of item tweaks and more.

Characters

  • Character transfers and faction changes no longer set back progress on the Titan Research Archive.

Darkmoon Faire

  • Players who have the Darkmoon Adventurer's Guide in their inventory should no longer receive error messages after killing enemies in Mythic Keystone dungeons.
    • Darkmoon Arcade
      • Players who die on the HexSweeper board are now teleported near the Arcade console.
      • Players can now walk on top of flagged hexes without triggering them.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Ny’alotha, the Waking City
    • Ra-den the Despoiled
      • Void Eruption should no longer damage pets on all difficulties.
      • Decaying Wound’s damage over time effect no longer persists after the end of the encounter on all difficulties.
      • Night Terror’s Dread Inferno spell no longer interrupts channeled abilities on Mythic difficulty.
      • Reduced the health of Ra-den, Essence of Void, Essence of Nightmare, Crackling Stalker, Void Hunter, and Night Terror by 5% on Mythic difficulty.
    • Carapace of N’Zoth
      • Reduced the number of spells that stop Fury of N'Zoth's movement during the encounter.
      • Resolved an issue where Madness and Insanity Bomb could potentially remove the sanity of the primary afflicted target.
      • Resolved an issue where players could get stuck in the final chamber.
      • Resolved an issue where Adaptive Membrane was removing players’ buffs on Mythic difficulty.
  • Operation: Mechagon – Junkyard
    • Scrapbone Grunters in the King Gobbamak encounter now inflict the same amount of damage as their counterparts in the rest of the dungeon on all difficulties.
    • Scrapbone Grunters' melee damage has been reduced by 43% on all difficulties.

      The Darkshore Warfront is available now on Heroic difficulty for Alliance players, meaning it's time to get your piece of gear that is equivalent to Heroic Ny'alotha loot (item level 460).
      Alliance players have access to the Heroic Warfront: The Battle for Darkshore quest in Boralus that rewards 50 7th Legion Service Medals, one item level 460 gear piece, and 750 Artifact Power.
      You can purchase the Sandy Nightsaber mount if you completed the Battle for Darkshore on Heroic difficulty (Heroic: War for the Shore) and have spare  350 7th Legion Service Medals.
      "A rare color for a nightsaber, and rarely seen, they are prized amongst huntresses."

      You can find out more information on all mounts by visiting our 8.3 Mounts Compendium.

      With weekly maintenance on February 25, more Coalescing Visions will start dropping from Assaults and Daily Quests. Blizzard is also removing the (5) inventory cap on Vessel of Horrific Visions, allowing you to cary as many as you like, and up to 4 Torn Pages of "Fear and Flesh" will drop in Horrific Visions on the rank 7-11 Legendary cloak upgrade quests (up from 2).

      We’re working on a set of hotfixes to the game that should streamline upgrading your Legendary cloak via Horrific Visions.
      Coalescing Visions now drop in higher numbers from Assaults and Daily Quests. The Unique (5) inventory cap on Vessel of Horrific Visions has been removed, allowing you to carry as many Vessels as you like. Up to 4 Torn Pages of "Fear and Flesh" quest items can now drop in Horrific Visions from objectives on the rank 7-11 Legendary cloak upgrade quests (was a max of 2). You’ll need to clear more than two sides areas in one run to get more than two pages. The rank 13-15 quests will still drop a max of 2 pages, only from Lost Area objectives. These updates will go into effect with weekly maintenance (Tuesday, February 25 in this region).

      The beta opt-in support page has been recently updated and now would be a good time to opt in for Shadowlands Beta if you haven't done that already.
      Blizzard (Source)
      To put your name into the pool of candidates interested in beta testing for Shadowlands, sign up on the Shadowlands home page using the Beta Opt-In link at the top of the page.

      Signing up for beta does not guarantee you will be chosen to participate, but players who have not signed up to indicate interest cannot be chosen. Customer Support is not able to provide access to beta. Blizzard has released the first encrypted Shadowlands Alpha build earlier this week and added the forthcoming expansion to the Battle.net App Catalog, suggesting that Friends & Family Alpha is really close. Opt in for Shadowlands Beta by visiting the link below!
