Patch 9.2 Hotfixes: March 2nd

Recommended Posts


The hotfixes continue as we get some more improvements mid-week. We see many more Sepulcher raid changes, as well as in Mythic+, alongside a minor Warlock fix, Zereth Mortis issue improvements including rare mobs getting their health reduced, and more.

Blizzard LogoMarch 2 (Source)


  • Fixed an issue that prevented character transfers to Roleplay realms.
  • Fixed a disconnect issue when inspecting another player in a Premade Group.


  • Warlock
    • Demonology
      • The duration extension effect from summoning your Summon Demonic Tyrant Demonic Tyrant has had its radius increased to 100 yards (was 40 yards).

Creatures and NPCs

  • Several Rare encounters in Zereth Mortis have had their maximum health reduced.
  • Fixed an issue where occasionally one or both sigils would not appear, making it impossible to lower the barrier to engage Protector of the First Ones.
    • Developers’ note: In the event one or both sigils still does not appear when the rare respawns, the barrier will be automatically dispelled after 35 seconds.
  • It is no longer possible to see Feroz and Elder Ara outside the Catalyst Wards and at the entrance to the Catalyst Gardens simultaneously. Quests can be turned in to Elder Ara and Feroz outside the Catalyst Wards while the character has not accepted all three of their quests.
  • Grasslands Raptora’s Bloody Peck now deals damage every 2 seconds (was 1 second).

Dungeons and Raids

  • Sepulcher of the First Ones
    • Skolex, the Insatiable Ravener
      • Fixed an issue where Skolex would sometimes not appear after defeating the four controllers.
    • Artificer Xy’mox
      • Fixed an issue where defeating Xy Reinforcements could fail to interrupt Decipher Relic.
      • Xy Spellslingers will no longer target the same player simultaneously.
    • Lihuvim, Principal Architect
      • Fixed an issue that caused Sundering and Kinetic Resonance to behave unpredictably.
    • Anduin Wrynn
      • Hopebreaker damage over time reduced by 10% on Heroic difficulty.
      • Befouled Barrier requires 25% less healing on Heroic and Mythic difficulty.
      • Befouled Barrier requires 50% less healing on Raid Finder and Normal difficulty.
      • Reduced the health of Grim Reflections by 20% on all difficulties except Mythic.
      • Reduced Beacon of Hope’s Purging Light damage by 20% on Heroic difficulty.
      • Fixed an issue where Rain of Despair was able to damage pets.
  • Mythic+
    • Halls of Atonement
      • Echelon
        • Fixed an issue where Echelon's Encrypted affix relics would not follow him into the encounter area.
    • Plaguefall
      • Fixed an issue where additional Encrypted affix relics were spawning before Domina Venomblade.
    • Tazavesh: Streets of Wonder
      • So'azmi
        • Explosives no longer spawn during the encounter.
          • Developers’ note: The actual issue here is that Explosives can hit players through So'azmi's Division walls, but changing that will take time to get right. Since it's currently Explosive week, we wanted to do a quicker change to address the fight feeling unfair with current functionality.
    • The Necrotic Wake
      • Fixed an issue causing the Xy Relic Dealer to not spawn inside the Stitchwerks after the timer expires.
      • Amarth
        • Fixed an issue causing additional Encrypted affix relics upon Amarth respawning.
      • Surgeon Stitchflesh
        • Fixed an issue causing Stitchflesh's Creation to hit Encrypted affix relics with Meat Hook.
  • Tazavesh: Streets of Wonder
    • Fixed an issue where the Customs door would not open on Heroic difficulty.

Items and Rewards

  • A finished Kettle of Stone Soup now lasts 15 minutes (was 3 minutes) and has 70 charges (was 35). Delicious!
  • The damage of Toxicialic Fluidic Spheroid Toxicialic Fluidic Spheroid has been capped at 6% of the player's maximum health.
  • Fixed an issue with Toxicialic Fluidic Spheroid Toxicialic Fluidic Spheroid to cause error messages while the player is mounted.
  • Formula: Enchant Weapon - Crusader Formula: Enchant Weapon - Crusader healing reduced by 86% and Strength reduced by 14%.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Cache of Sepulcher Treasures to generate its loot based on your loot specialization at the time you acquired the cache. This will now instead use your loot specialization at the time you open the cache.


  • Fixed an issue where the quests "A Jiro Guide to Not Being Eaten", "Picking Up the Pieces... Literally", and "Gut Check" were not available.
  • Fixed an issue for the quest "Jiro to Hero" where players could not talk to Hanoa the Exile, and therefore could not start the event.

In case of Spires of Accession i can say that Xy Relic Dealer spawns the relic's EVADING, which takes about 5 to 10 seconds that they get attackable. This happened on the last platform for last boss. Xy is standing on an edge, so maybe thats the issue, they spawn in a not reachable place and so they are evading.

      Last week we made the big switch to focus on Mythic logs and today we're going to be taking a look at the tank and healer situation in the maximum difficulty for the Sepulcher, as well as our usual DPS roundup.
      95th Percentile
      Destruction moves even further ahead in Mythic this week, as we see some additional movement in the top 3, with Frost DK dropping 2 spots to Demonology and Survival. There's actually been a lot of 2-spot moves this week, starting with Windwalker's rise to 6th, moving past Elemental and Retribution, who are having a bad week as Unholy also slapped them both down to move into 8th, but at least they stay in the top 10 (and swap places). Havoc remains firm at No.10, with Frost taking the Mage crown and finishing the week in 11th. The bottom remains much the same, with only Assassination managing to crawl out of there, rising 5 spots!

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      A very firm top 5 in the generalist bracket as we see no changes from  last week, but then a bit of a reverse from the high percentiles as Unholy drops 1 spot to Marksmanship. Havoc is just as stable here, but a little bit higher up, with Windwalker and Retribution closing out the top 10. 

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Tank DPS and Healer HPS
      While tank DPS isn't exactly the most crucial stat there is, we at least have something to compare them with here, so let's take a look. Guardian has stepped it up a notch as they take the crown, but both Paladins and Warriors are very close, with DKs not too far behind either.
      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Healers are very stable, as the Mythic rankings look identical to the Heroic ones from a few weeks ago, with Druids and Monks dominating.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Frost DKs are back at No.2 on Heroic, as Demonology rules over all and Destruction remains in the middle of the pack. Havoc is rising this week and has positioned it self at No.4, knocking Shadow down one, as Balance hops 1 up into 6th. Subtletly has a big drop this week, as it moves all the way down to 14th from its previous top 10 spot.

      All percentiles Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
      As always, if you want even more info on a spec, you can check out our class guides here, for a DPS tier list you can go here, or for even more data, head on over to Warcraft Logs. You can also check out our Sepulcher raid guides.

      Blizzard has changed the eye color of Dark Ranger Captain Delaryn Summermoon in Patch 9.2.5. Delaryn was raised by Sylvanas during the Battle for Darkshore. In this post, we speculate about the eye change in more detail.
      Delaryn Summermoon was the captain of the Darnassian City Guard and a commander of the night elven forces who fought during the War of Thorns. She was raised into undeath as a dark ranger of the Forsaken during the Battle for Darkshore. She along with other undead night elves sought Calia Menethil to help them.
      Source: Wowpedia
      Delaryn's eyes currently have a red/blueish Death Knight glow on live servers and they gave her proper red eyes in Patch 9.2.5. The customization option exists in the game files for a while now and isn't exactly new. Below you can see her updated eyes in mode detail. Thanks to simaia and MrGM for spotting the change.
      Placeholder for tweet 1528735870441771011 What could the new eye color mean? For one, we have rumors circulating about a potential Dragonflight pre-order Allied Race. We also know that something's brewing in Lordaeron with updates to Brill and Calia Menethil. Do you think Calia might end up leading the fallen Night Elves that have been raised by Sylvanas (dark rangers) or could this be a Hunter customization option like the Night Warrior? Let us know down in the comments!
      Keep in mind that nothing has been confirmed by Blizzard yet and we'll need to wait until the update goes live.

      Grimrail Depot will be added to the Mythic+ pool of dungeons in Shadowlands Season 4. Here's a sample +10 run of the Warlords of Draenor dungeon from the Patch 9.2.5 PTR.
      The sample run includes testing of the new Season 4 Affix called Shrouded. Thanks to MrGM for the video.
      Blizzard added a new accessibility option for players that hides moving environment pieces in Maw of Souls and Grimrail Depot. You can buy the elixir from an NPC at the beginning of both dungeons.

      Heartbond Lupine received a new flying animation in Patch 9.2.5. In this post, we compare the old and new animations in more detail.
      Heartbond Lupine is a mount added in Patch 9.2 that comes from Protoform Synthesis. Its current flying animation makes it look as if the mount was swimming in the air. 

      In Patch 9.2.5 the flying run animation has been updated as you can see below. The mount no longer swims but walks in the air.

      Which animation do you prefer? Let us know in the comments!
