Patch 9.1 Hotfixes: July 7th

Recommended Posts


Another huge batch of hotfixes has arrived! We have some PvP class fixes, Covenant NPCS returning to Oribos, a lot of item and rare improvements and plenty of Season 2 aka Mythic+, Sanctum of Domination and Tazavesh adjustments (including the Garrosh cutscene now playing as it should have). Also Packaged Soul Ash is now Battle.net account wide!

  • Fixed an issue where defeating the bosses on Floor 5 were not providing credit for Touring Torghast Touring Torghast.
    • Developers note: Unfortunately, this fix is not retroactive and you may have to run the Layer again to receive credit if it is the highest Layer you can complete. However, finishing any higher Layers will also complete the achievement criteria for the Layers below them, so there’s no need to enter the lower Layers again if you choose not to do so.



Creatures and NPCs

  • Rift rares will more reliably return to the Rift if they defeat all adventurers.
  • The NPCs that help you change covenants have returned in Oribos.
  • Escaped Wilderling is much braver now and will no longer abandon you when you fly over the Maw.
  • Popo will no longer act as a guard in War Mode and will remain focused on his task of delivering potions to his friends.
  • Relic Gatherers and Relic Gorgers will now allow more people to get credit for attacking them. But beware, in War Mode the other faction might just steal your faction’s control of the mob.
  • Fixed an issue where Fleshwing would sometimes become stuck in the sky.
  • The Assault Supply Carriage should more reliably reset after the event completes.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Mythic+ Affixes
    • Tormented
      • The Champion’s Mastery effect from Champion’s Brand now grants the correct amount of Mastery.
  • Sanctum of Domination
    • Soulrender Dormazain
      • [NA realms only] A cinematic now correctly plays after his defeat.
    • Fatescribe Roh-Kalo
      • The arrow indicators that appear while moving rings during Runic Affinity now respond to the number of players inside the active rune, rather than the ring's current rotational momentum.
    • Kel'Thuzad
      • Fixed Shadow Fissure’s visual effect so it is no longer invisible if you enter the Phylactery Phase late.
    • Sylvanas Windrunner
      • Fixed an issue where she could begin her third stage with an incorrect amount of health.
  • Tazavesh, the Veiled Market
    • [NA realms only] The extra action button associated with the instruments in Myza's Oasis should no longer despawn when picking up the instrument.

Items and Rewards

  • The Relic Fragments from the portal spawns leading up to the spawn of the Anima-Starved Devourer or the Mawsworn Exterminator have been reduced. The drops from these big bosses have been increased slightly to compensate.
    • Developers’ note: We do not want people to feel that they should skip helping defeat one of these big rares if they missed the portal opening.
  • Packaged Soul Ash Packaged Soul Ash is now bound to your Battle.net account rather than you World of Warcraft account.
  • Soul Cinders can now be acquired starting at Torghast Layer 8 (was Layer 9). The total amount of Soul Cinders earned at Layer 12 will remain the same.
  • The First Technique First Technique effect provided by the Codex of the First Technique Codex of the First Technique trinket is now appropriately effective against very large strikes.
  • The Vault Anima Tracker Vault Anima Tracker will no longer be on the Death's Advance Quartermaster after you have purchased and learned it.
  • Lost Razorwing Eggs should now properly count as returned when used in a raid group.
  • Fixed an issue that caused some players to not receive the Nilganihmaht's Signet Ring when defeating Exos, Herald of Domination.

Pet Battles

  • Fixed an issue where the Eye of Affliction wild pet would use its Agony ability again before allowing the larger impact damage to happen.


  • Fixed an issue that would prevent the quest to kill Mor'geth to appear.
  • Locating and interacting with Huln Highmountain during “Hunting Amid Houses” will now grant quest credit.
  • Fixed an issue where Heirmir would be unavailable during the quest "Hooking Over."

User Interface

  • Tazavesh, the Veiled Market is now a valid option for scheduled Calendar events.

The feedback on Tazavesh is pretty uniformly great (aside from the postmaster bug). I love how players are working around the bug tho.

      The recent Activision Blizzard lawsuit is having effects in World of Warcraft as well, with many players staging various kinds of protests, including sit-ins in Oribos while raising money for charity, and checking up on a disappearing NPC.
      The most prominent of the protests is from the Fence Macabre RP guild who stages a sit-in on the Oribos steps with hundreds of players, and also managed to raise a huge $9,500 for the Black Girls Code non-profit organization during it:
      The guild tried to get as many individual players together on the same shard via raid groups, but there were still plenty you can't see in the screenshots.
      Another interesting "event" in the game is players heading to Stormwind to "check up" on a specific NPC, namely Field Marshal Afrasiabi (who is named for Alex Afrasiabi, one of the people mentioned in the lawsuit allegations, and who also left Blizzard in 2020).

      The more interesting thing, however, is that Blizzard has seemingly started despawning the NPC, as he was not there when some players arrived. Players had actually been asking for the removal of all references related to Afrasiabi, so this might just be Blizzard listening, although there are other references still in-game.

      And finally, a message from one group of players to the other:

      In terms of actual player comments on the matter there are, of course, many more threads discussing the issue over on r/wow, so if you want to see more community reactions head on over there, with most comments in the main lawsuit thread.

      A bigger batch for the end of the week, focusing on Mythic+ dungeon changes, with some Torghast and minor class and item tweaks as well, with the Paragon reputation from the Archivist's Codex now working properly.

      Demon Hunter Fixed an issue with Hidden Helm and Hidden Cloak transmog options for Demon Hunters not using the correct appearances. Covenants
      Soulbinds Night Fae Fixed an issue where Podtender (Dreamweaver) would cause the player to die when accepting a queue. Dungeons and Raids
      Sanctum of Domination Remnant of Ner’zhul Fixed an issue that allowed cleave effects to hit his armor pieces on Mythic difficulty. Mythic+ Fixed an issue where dying after completing the dungeon in time could cause you to lose the ability to trade your keystone with Ta'hsup. Tormented Affix The spawn location of the 4th Tormented Affix lieutenant in Sanguine Depths has been adjusted to be available before Grand Proctor Beryilla. Spires of Ascension Devos Fixed an issue that would cause Archon's Bastion damage reduction buff to be removed with player immunity effects. Tazavesh, the Veiled Market Fixed an issue where Lethal Force would continue to affect players after Commander Zo’far’s defeat. Items and Rewards
      Paragon reputation gains for The Archivists' Codex faction now function properly. Torghast, Tower of the Damned
      Torments Raging can now be dispelled by spells that remove enrage effects such as Soothe . Reinforced: Unstoppable is no longer removed from the enemy upon the player’s defeat.

      Blizzard President J. Allen Brack sent an internal email to Blizzard employees, addressing the allegations from this week's lawsuit.
      The president called them "extremely troubling" and said that he'd be "meeting with many of you to answer questions and discuss how we can move forward", according to Bloomberg's Jason Schreier.
      Placeholder for tweet 1418512291218264065 Here's a full transcript of the mail (courtesy of Jason Schreier).
      J. Allen Brack
      Hello Blizzard - 
      I personally have a lot of emotions coming out of yesterday, and I know you do, too. The allegations and the hurt of the current and former employees are extremely troubling.
      I know many of you would like to receive more clarity. While I can't comment on the specifics of the case as it's an open investigation, what I can say is that the behavior detailed in the allegations is completely unacceptable.
      It goes - without saying - it is completely unacceptable for anyone in the company to face discrimination or harassment. It goes - without saying - that everyone should feel safe working here, whether we are on campus, at BlizzCon, or working from home. It goes - without saying - it takes courage to come forward, and all claims brought to the company are investigated by internal and (when needed) external investigators. We take these claims very seriously. Claims made without fear of retaliation, and many times, I attend to them personally, along with our other leaders. Stepping back - when I talked with Bobby about taking this job, one of the first things I mentioned was a revered saint of the Brack household - Gloria Steinem. Growing up, the value of women as equals, understanding the work that had been done for equal treatment, and the fact that there was still much to do, were common themes. This is just one of the reasons why the fight for equality is incredibly important to me. People with different backgrounds, views, and experiences are essential for Blizzard, our teams, and our player community. I disdain "bro culture," and have spent my career fighting against it.
      Iterating on our culture with the same intensity that we bring to our games is imperative, with our values acting as our north star. This is some of the most important work we do, both as professionals and human beings.
      A company is more than a legal construct that exists as a piece of paper in a filing cabinet in Delaware. The people that work at the company make it what it is, through their actions and creations. Each of us plays a role in maintaining a place of safety for one other. And it is also up to each of us to continue to craft the Blizzard we want - and commit to doing our part in keeping Blizzard great but always aspiring for more.
      The leadership team and I will be meeting with many of you to answer questions and discuss how we can move forward. In the meantime, I wanted to know that you can talk to any man ager, any HR partner, any member of the legal team, or to any one on the executive team [including, Hey J]. If you feel more comfortable by talking to someone outside of Blizzard, or prefer to be anonymous, you can contact the Way2Play Integrity Line (CENSORED).
      I feel angry, sad, and a host of other emotions, but I also feel grateful to work alongside a set of leaders and thousands of employees who join me in their commitment to continuous improvement.
      Thank you Blizzard.

      Domination Socket Helper is an addon that prevents you from replacing/destroying Shards of Domination in Patch 9.1.
      Shards of Domination should always be extracted using Soulfire Chisel. However, if you decide to replace them, they will be destroyed in the process, which is where Domination Socket Helper comes in handy.
       What Does the Addon Do?
      Prevents you from replacing a Domination Shard and adds a button next to the socket which safely removes the shard.

      Destroying the item or selling it to a vendor is also blocked.

      I will add more functionality when I have time. (Hopefully, a window that lets you add shards without dragging them from your bags)
      You can download Domination Socket Helper here.

      It's been a big few days for the Race to World First, as the EU re-clear meant an actually pretty tense race for World 3rd, as Pieces and BDGG went at it trying to see who can defeat Sylvanas first and we got 5 guilds past the Banshee today!
      While the top 2 has been determined for a while now, that doesn't mean the race is over, and we had yet another EU vs. US face-off on our hands! We actually had 8 guilds progressing on the final boss of the Sanctum today, but only BDGG, Pieces and Method were actually close to a kill. After a lengthy re-clear, both Pieces and Method were back progressing on the boss, and Pieces were doing well, managing to get under 50% in 134 pulls, and then after a few wipes, this happened:

      Yep, that's right. 0.16%. THE closest any guild has come to defeating Sylvanas... without actually defeating her. It took Pieces over an hour to recover from that close of a call, but they did manage to focus up and get that extra tiny fraction of HP down, claiming and defending their previous World 3rd!

      BDGG were the biggest  movers in this tier, as they caught up to Pieces quite quickly and gained 5 spots on the world stage since Nathria, earning their World 4th!

      And finally, we got our 5th place guild today, as Method also improved from their Nathria performance, climbing 2 spots!

      We still have plenty of guilds still progressing on Sylvanas, 6 to be exact, 5 spots in the top 10, and the Asia first yet to be crowned! And as a final treat, here's Complexity-Limit's multi-PoV World 2nd video:
