Dragonflight Patch 10.0.2 Hotfixes: January 4th

Recommended Posts


We have a huge batch of hotfixes today, with pretty much everything getting updates, from dungeons to the Mythic+ seasonal affix, the raid, classes, MANY profession and item changes and more!

Blizzard LogoJanuary 4 (Source)


  • Paladin
    • Fixed an issue causing Divine Toll Divine Toll to sometimes cast the incorrect spell.
  • Rogue
    • Fixed an issue that caused Grappling Hook Grappling Hook to break Stealth when talented into Subterfuge.

Creatures and NPCs

  • Seltherex in Valdrakken now sells Orboreal Distinguishment Orboreal Distinguishment (5 Marks of Honor) for 2000 Honor.
  • Fixed an issue where Notfar the Unbearable did not reward players for defeating him.


  • Fixed an error that could sometimes occur when taking off.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Azure Vaults
    • Telash Greywing
      • Fixed an issue where using an immunity on Icy Devastator would cause the next Frost Bomb to happen sooner.
  • Brakenhide Hollow
    • Fixed an issue where Gashtooth would cast Marked for Butchery on pets. This should now correctly only target players.
  • Court of Stars
    • Advisor Melandrus
      • Fixed an issue that caused the images of Melandrus to inflict more damage than intended with Slicing Maelstrom. The damage of Slicing Maelstrom is now normalized across all enemies in the encounter and has been adjusted to compensate.
        • Increased the unavoidable damage effect of Slicing Maelstrom by 20%.
        • Reduced the additional damage of Slicing Maelstrom to players within 7 yards by 30%.

  • Vault of the Incarnates
    • The Primal Council
      • Conductive Mark has some harsh overlaps with other spells. These casts are getting pushed back by 2-3 seconds depending on difficulty to keep an exciting challenge, but one that feels fair and expected for the position of this fight in the raid.
  • Mythic+
    • Affixes
      • Thundering
        • Updated the visual indicators used for the Thundering affix.
        • Thundering should no longer interrupt eating and drinking.

Items and Rewards

  • Fixed an issue where Blazebinder's Hoof Blazebinder's Hoof would not trigger off certain melee attacks.
  • Raid Trinkets
    • Developers’ note: Overall, we’re happy with how trinkets & itemization is working out in Vault of the Incarnates. As we’re getting back to the office though, we wanted to take the time to address some outliers, some bugs, and some vocal feedback (with regards to Whispering Incarnate Icon). We are making a few adjustments as soon as possible so as not to heavily impact choice around trading, assigning loot, or picking things out of your Great Vault more than the holidays have already done.
    • Desperate Invoker's Codex Desperate Invoker's Codex
      • Lowered the amount of self-damage the player takes on-use by 20%.
      • Fixed an issue where players could gain stacks of Hatred outside of combat.

  • Alchemy
  • Enchanting
    • The Enchanting formulas Illusion: Primal Frost, Air, Fire, and Earth were inadvertently bind on pickup. They have been changed to unbound so they may freely be traded and sold on the auction house.
  • Herbalism
    • Mastering the Elements (40) should now correctly increase the amount of Rousing Essence gained from elemental herbs.
  • Jewelcrafting
    • Glassware (10) should now correctly reduce the cooldown of Gem Hoard crafts.
  • Mining
    • Mastering the Elements (50) should now correctly grant random Rousing Essences upon Overloading. In addition, the amount has been increased from 1 to 2-3 to be closer in value to Herbalism’s equivalent capstone. The tooltip will be corrected in a future patch.

In Halls of Valor Odin's gossip window closes instantly when i click on him and cant accept to start the encounter, anybody know what causing this?

Probably a Weak Aura or addon like Leatrix or similar. Next time try holding Shift down when you click the questgiver. If the window stays so to say it is a addon or WA since most of them has Shift as the basic keybind to hold down preventing auto complete and this setting can be turned off if you figure out what addon or WA is causing it. You need to hold shift down for each click if you want the auto complete feature to be paused.

Kinda sad how the inscription trinkets are getting no love.   It was a major part of the profession's specializations and none of them are turning out to be worthwhile.

      The Mage Tower is available again in Patch 10.0.5, so we're looking at all the rewards you can unlock!
      1. Guardian Druid Bear Form
      Guardian Druids can get a fel-themed Bear Form after completing the tank challenge. This is a recolor of the White Bear Form from the Legion Artifact that was removed. All Druids on your account will have access to this form once unlocked.

      2. Soaring Spell Tome Mount
      You will receive the Mage-Bound Spelltome mount from the A Tour of Towers achievement, which requires you to complete every unique challenge available at the Mage Tower.
      In the forgotten depths of the Dalaran library, this oversized tome was found flapping madly around the room. Open the pages of this arcane-infused book and hitch a ride to magical adventure.

      The character stands on the book while riding the mount.

      3. Armor Sets
      The Mage Tower Sets are recolors of Mythic Tomb of Sargeras Tier 20 sets. Every class has a different set that you can check out below. Some classes have two variations due to multiple chest armor pieces. I'm not sure if Evokers get a unique set as I don't main one.
      Death Knight

      Demon Hunter











      4. Tower Overwhelming Achievement
      Tower Overwhelming doesn't reward anything, but the achievement is quite the challenge for players who must complete every challenge at the Mage Tower across all classes and specializations.

      The Lunar Festival has been updated in 2023 with the Elders of the Dragon Isles that you must earn for the meta-achievement. Check out our latest post to find out locations of the new Elders!

      For more details about the event, check out our Lunar Festival Guide. We've updated the guide for 10.0.5 and the changes should be deployed soon.

      We have a bit of a dungeon availability switcheroo today, as Blizzard have fixed the Plaguefall issue and turned the dungeon back on, but also disabled Timewalking Court of Stars! 
      Dungeons (Source 1, 2)
      We’ve identified an issue causing some players to become trapped in the Legion Timewalking Court of Stars dungeon and we’ve temporarily removed the dungeon from the Timewalking dungeon finder. No one likes being stuck in Court.
      The Mythic+ version of the dungeon appears to be unaffected by this issue.
      We’ll let you know when we’ve got it fixed and opened again.

      With a hotfix, we’ve re-enabled the Plaguefall dungeon. The terrain issue some players were experiencing has been fixed.
      Thank you.

      Blizzard have announced some big changes coming to Retribution Plaladins with the next content patch, with a rebuild of the talent tree from the ground up! Check out all the details below:
      Retribution (Source)
      Well met!
      We’re doing a substantial rework to the Retribution talent tree in patch 10.0.7. Rebuilding the Retribution talent tree from the ground up means significant changes ahead. However, the talent tree itself will not be available in our first PTR build(s), so initial testing on the PTR will be missing important context.
      Nonetheless, we’d like to share our major goals for Retribution with you.
      Button bloat: Retribution Paladins currently have a fairly large number of abilities, and some of these feel unnecessary and inefficient. We’re working to tone this down and have a more focused set of abilities and cooldowns.
      Stacking modifiers: There are currently several talents and abilities that provide stacking bonuses, which can make for a confusing and messy playstyle that deals extreme burst damage, but in return leaves your core abilities feeling unsatisfying and under-tuned. We intend to significantly change this. We want your core abilities to feel good and powerful when used in all situations. This doesn’t mean we’re reducing all elements of burst damage, but we do want to make burst more purposeful and deliberate, while also allowing options that provide sustained damage.
      Survivability: Retribution Paladins currently have one of the highest death rates across all forms of content. For a plate wearing class with hybrid healing, this doesn’t feel right. We’re looking to strengthen them through a mixture of passive bonus and improvements to active abilities and cooldowns, while keeping the degree of challenge that results from being a melee-based spec.
      Maneuverability: We recognize that there’s an issue here and we hope to make some improvements. However, we want to set clear expectations. Retribution Paladins should not expect to gain the mobility of Rogues.
      Utility: The changes that Dragonflight brought to Retribution have caused some conflict for players, forcing the Ret Paladin to choose between providing benefits to their groups or benefiting themselves. This choice can be interesting, but due to the way this has historically worked for Paladins, it hasn’t felt right in Dragonflight. So, we’re looking to make changes here that allow you to feel good and improve your own damage while also providing the group benefits that you’re used to. We’re also looking into additional utility improvements for Paladins during the 10.0.7 test cycle.
      We’re looking forward to hearing your feedback on the points above, as well as anything else about Retribution that you’d like to share. Thank you!

      Plenty of class fixes arrive in today's batch, as well as a change to Bolstering, items, quests, professions and more - including a Wrath Classic fix as well.
      January 27 (Source)
      Druid Restoration Fixed an issue that could cause Regrowth to sometimes not apply its direct healing after casting Nourish. Monk Mistweaver Fixed an issue that caused Awakened Faeline and Ancient Concordance to fail to apply in some instances while multiple Faelines were present. Paladin Retribution Lawbringer now correctly deals 8% of enemy maximum health in damage. Rogue The Outlaw 2pc set bonus now correctly interacts with Echoing Reprimand. Warlock Affliction Fixed an issue where Inevitable Demise was granting double benefit to Drain Life. Fixed an issue where Malefic Affliction was not being removed when casting Unstable Affliction on another target. Fixed an issue where Withering Bolt was exceeding the described damage increase cap when using Drain Soul. Fixed an issue where Malefic Rapture and Seed of Corruption consumed multiple applications of Cruel Epiphany. Dungeons and Raids
      Mythic+ Affixes Bolstering no longer applies to players’ summons. Items and Rewards
      The Ensemble: Tuskar Trader’s Leather Armor sold by Lontupit or Murik in Iskaara will no longer require Resilient Leather, which wasn’t showing on the vendor’s list of required items. Professions
      Alchemy Potion of Sacrificial Anima can no longer be used above level 60. The tooltip will reflect this in a future patch. Engineering The Magazine of Healing Darts embellishment will now only fire towards and be consumed by other players. Quests
      Valdrakken Players who have not yet started “Reviving the Machine” should now see its starting location displayed in Valdrakken’s map.
        Wrath of the Lich King Classic
      Classes Death Knight Sigil of the Vengeful Heart now increases Death Coil damage and Frost Strike damage by the correct amounts listed on the item’s tooltip.
