      • [With weekly restarts] Efficacy of Stagger against Magical damage increased to 45% (was 35%).
      • [With weekly restarts] Cooldown of Celestial Brew reduced to 45 sec (was 60).

    • Retribution
      • [With weekly restarts] Crusader Strike Damage increased by 40%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Blade of Justice damage increased by 25%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Final Reckoning damage increased by 15%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Shield of Vengeance cooldown reduced to 90 sec (was 120).
      • Developers’ notes: Some of Retribution’s main rotational buttons do not feel as good to press as we’d like so we’re making some changes to help improve these abilities. Additionally, their survivability isn’t where we would like so we’re making some improvements to their defensive kit as well. We are looking at Retribution as a whole and will have more to share in the future.
  • Priest
    • Holy
      • [With weekly restarts] All healing done increased by 3%.
    • Shadow
      • [With weekly restarts] Focused Will provides 10% damage reduction for Shadow (down from 15%).
      • [With weekly restarts] Mind Blast damage increased by 15% (Shadow only).
      • [With weekly restarts] Mind Flay damage increased by 15% (this includes Mind Flay: Insanity, but not the proc from Idol of C’Thun).
      • [With weekly restarts] Mind Spike damage increased by 15%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Void Torrent damage increased by 15%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Devouring Plague damage increased by 15%.
      • Developers’ notes: These changes are aimed at improving Shadow’s single target DPS. The change to Focused Will is a targeted change for PvP to reduce Shadow’s survivability.
  • Rogue
    • Outlaw
      • [With weekly restarts] Reduced Precise Cuts (Talent) bonus to Blade Flurry damage per missing target below its maximum to 2% (was 3%).
        • Developers’ notes: As we monitor the developing M+ meta and related data, we have recognized that Outlaw is overperforming. We expect this change will reduce Outlaw’s damage output in encounters with target count above 1 and below 8, as their damage is currently more consistent than we intend for dungeons and encounters that frequently present those circumstances.
  • Warlock
    • Fixed an issue where Demon Armor from the Conflict and Strife essence persisted outside of Battle for Azeroth zones.
    • Affliction
      • [With weekly restarts] Agony damage increased by 5%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Corruption damage increased by 5%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Drain Soul damage increased by 10%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Pandemic Invocation damage increased by 20%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Seed of Corruption damage increased by 5%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Shadow Bolt damage increased by 10%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Siphon Life damage increased by 10%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Unstable Affliction backlash damage is no longer increased from increased damage dealt modifiers or effects that increase Unstable Affliction’s damage.
    • Destruction
      • [With weekly restarts] Channel Demonfire damage increased by 10%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Rain of Fire damage increased by 15%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Soul Fire damage increased by 20%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Infernal and Blasphemy Immolation damage increased by 10%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Conflagrate damage increased by 10%. Does not apply to PvP.
      • [With weekly restarts] Immolate damage increased by 10%. Does not apply to PvP.
      • [With weekly restarts] Incinerate damage increased by 15%. Does not apply to PvP.

Dungeons and Raids

  • The Nokhud Offensive
    • Granyth
      • Fixed an issue where multiple players could interact with the ballista at the same time and each fire an arrow.
    • Teera and Maruuk
      • Fixed an issue where Blessing of Protection allowed players to be immune to the effects of Teera’s Gale Arrow.
  • Ruby Life Pools
    • Melidrussa Chillworn
      • [With weekly restarts] Reduced the damage of triggering a Hailbomb by 40%.
      • [With weekly restarts] Reduced party-wide AoE damage on the initial cast of Hailbombs by 66%
        • Developers’ note: The initial on-cast hit from Hailbombs was never intended to be a large source of damage, and when scaled up on Mythic+ it i s contributing more damage to the fight than we’d like, so we’re reining it in to give healers more breathing room to recover from Melidrussa’s other abilities.
    • Kokia Blazehoof
      • [With weekly restarts] Reduced period damage of Searing Wounds by 25%
      • [With weekly restarts] Reduced damage of Scorched Earth by 25%
  • Mythic+
    • Algeth’ar Academy
      • Fixed an issue where some enemies near Vexamus did not provide Enemy Forces credit, and adjusted Enemy Forces requirements accordingly
      • Developers’ note: This will make enemies in the dungeon “appear” to grant slightly less Enemy Forces credit, but defeating the enemies affected by this change was required to engage Vexamus, so there shouldn’t be any real gameplay impact.

Vault of the Incarnates

  • Reduced the push effect of Hurricane Wing on Mythic difficulty.

Player versus Player

  • Classes
    • Demon Hunter

      • [With weekly restarts] Soul Rending leech bonus reduced by 40% in PvP Combat.
      • Havoc
        • [With weekly restarts] Glimpse (PvP Talent) damage reduction reduced to 35% (was 75%).
        • [With weekly restarts] Essence Break damage bonus for Chaos Strike and Blade Dance reduced by 37.5% in PvP Combat.
        • [With weekly restarts] Soulrend damage reduced by 16.7% in PvP Combat.
        • Developers’ notes: We have noticed Havoc Demon Hunter overperforming in several facets of PvP including personal survivability, burst damage, and overall DPS. We’re taking action to reduce their effectiveness in these areas while still aiming to keep them competitive.
    • Evoker

      • Preservation
        • [With weekly restarts] Energy Loop’s mana regeneration reduced by 25% in PvP combat.
          • Developers’ notes: Energy Loop’s mana restoration has been overperforming compared to its contribution in PvE due to game-wide reduced mana regeneration within PvP instances. We’re adjusting this to bring it in line with expected benefits, but still want this effect to remain a powerful option as we feel it can lead to compelling decision making with Essence resources.
    • Mage

      • Arcane
        • [With weekly restarts] Siphon Storm’s effectiveness has been reduced by 50% in PvP combat.
          • Developers’ notes: Siphon Storm has been a culprit for one-shot scenarios, so we are adjusting its effectiveness down heavily.
      • Frost
        • [With weekly restarts] Reduced Glacial Spike’s damage increased from Mastery: Icicles by 25%. This will be reflected in the tooltip in a later patch.
          • Developers’ notes: Siphon Storm has been a culprit for one-shot scenarios, so we are adjusting its effectiveness down heavily.
    • Monk

      • [With weekly restarts] Blackout Kick damage increased by 30% in PvP Combat (was 15%).
      • [With weekly restarts] Tiger’s Palm damage increased by 30% in PvP Combat (was 15%).
      • Mistweaver
        • [With weekly restarts] Rising Sun Kick now deals 12.5% additional damage in PvP (was 25%).
        • Developer’s note: We are looking to offset the incoming PvE buffs to Rising Sun Kick as we think it currently hits hard enough to be effective for Mistweaver in PvP.
    • Windwalker

      • [With weekly restarts] Thunderfist damage reduced by 40% in PvP Combat.
      • [With weekly restarts] Skyreach increases critical strike chance by 30% in PvP Combat (was 50%).
      • [With weekly restarts] Fists of Fury damage increased by 15% in PvP Combat.
      • Developers’ notes: Windwalker burst has continued to be above a level we’re comfortable with. We’re targeting Thunderfist and Skyreach, as they have been large contributors to this. We’re also increasing their sustained damage, as we feel there is room for that to improve as their burst is reduced.
    • Priest

      • [With weekly restarts] Flash Heal healing is increased by 30% in PvP Combat (was 20%).
      • Holy
        • [With weekly restarts] Heal healing is increased by 35% in PvP Combat (was 25%).
        • [With weekly restarts] Holy Word: Serenity healing is increased by 15% in PvP Combat.
        • Developers’ notes: Holy received PvP reductions in casted healing effectiveness in previous patches that we now feel are unnecessary and are reverting. We also feel Holy Word: Serenity has not been as effective as we would like at handling burst damage, so we are increasing that as well.
      • Shadow
        • [With weekly restarts] Shadow Word: Death damage reduced by 30% in PvP Combat for Shadow only (was 20%).
        • [With weekly restarts] Mind Blast damage reduced by 25% in PvP Combat for Shadow only.
        • [With weekly restarts] Mind Spike damage reduced by 25% in PvP Combat.
        • [With weekly restarts] Devouring Plague damage reduced by 25% in PvP Combat.
        • [With weekly restarts] Vampiric Touch damage reduced by 5% in PvP Combat (was increased by 10%).
        • [With weekly restarts] The trigger rate of Shadowy Insight has been reduced by 25% while in PvP Combat.
        • [With weekly restarts] The trigger rate of Surge of Darkness has been reduced by 25% while in PvP Combat.
        • Developers’ notes: Shadow Priest has been widely overperforming, so we are looking to offset recent PvE buffs to them and reduce their power defensively through changes to Focused Will. We’re also reducing their instant proc damage availability as we feel Shadow Priests do not have to hard cast spells as often as we would like them to.
    • Rogue

      • Assassination
        • [With weekly restarts] Improved Garrote’s Garrote damage bonus reduced by 40% in PvP Combat.
        • [With weekly restarts] Iron Wire damage reduction debuff now has a PvP duration of 4 seconds (was 8 seconds).
        • Developers’ notes: Assassination’s spread and single target Garrote pressure has been very high. We’re targeting this by decreasing the effectiveness of Improved Garrote. Iron Wire’s damage reduction effect has also felt too potent to us at preventing enemy pressure.
    • Warlock

      • Demonology
        • [With weekly restarts] Demonic Strength unleashes a Felstorm that deals 150% increased damage in PvP Combat (down from 400%).
        • [With weekly restarts] Demonfire damage increased by 75% in PvP Combat.
        • [With weekly restarts] Dreadbite damage reduced by 10% in PvP Combat.
        • Developers’ notes: We feel Demonic Strength can be a difficult spell to notice and has little counter play compared to Demonic Tyrant and its associated Demonfire casts. We’re looking to adjust Demonology’s burst sources while aiming to keep them at the same relative power. We also want to slightly reduce Demonology’s overall pressure by targeting Dreadbite.
    • Warrior

      • [With weekly restarts] Defensive Stance now reduces damage done by 15% (was 20%) in PvP combat.
        • Developers’ notes: Defensive Stance was adjusted in previous patches to address damage issues we no longer feel are present for Warriors. We’re increasing damage done in Defensive Stance to help increase their offensive pressure without affecting them defensively.

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Fixing an issue where Wintergrasp faction win conditions could be unintentionally reset, resulting in players not receiving the Essence of Wintergrasp buff.

Remove Fortified and Tyrannical or merge 50% of their values into the baseline, they are clearly skewed affixes when ur still nerfing bosses' abilities by 66%.

 

Having a biweekly affix when you can't balance the dungeons anyway makes you look like clowns

      We have quite a few class fixes in today's batch, both for PvE and PvP, as well as the Primal Chaos BoA vendor and more, including some Wrath Classic improvements!
      February 2 (Source)
      Classes
      Druid Skull Bash will no longer trigger Precognition when successfully interrupting a Holy Paladin with Concentration Aura. Guardian Fixed an issue where Tooth and Claw did not correctly grant 15% magic damage mitigation. Evoker Temporal Anomaly can now be cast while moving when releasing it through Stasis. Monk Mistweaver Fixed an issue that caused Lesson of Anger to not duplicate some damage or healing sources. Items and Rewards
      Fixed an issue that prevented Blueprint: Utility Mechaclaw from dropping from the Caustic Mechaslime in Mechagon. Player versus Player
      Classes Evoker Quell will no longer trigger Precognition when successfully interrupting another player who is affected by Concentration Aura. Solo Shuffle Fixed an issue where summoned pets’ cooldowns were not correctly being reset between rounds. Professions
      Rabul of the Artisan’s Consortium now sells a Satchel of Coalescing Chaos that binds to your Blizzard Account. This item costs 80 Primal Chaos and provides 60 Primal Chaos to the character who uses it. Developers’ notes: We’ve heard and agree with feedback that players have amassed surplus Primal Chaos on their mains while their alts need all the Primal Chaos they can get. Some Primal Chaos will be lost in the transaction. This is because we want to make sure that while this is a great way for a main to help an alt, the best way to gear up a character should generally be via actually playing that character. Nonetheless, this should provide an additional use for your Primal Chaos, as well as a good way to get some powerful gear to your alts quickly. Inscription Fixed an issue with Darkmoon Decks where the Sagescale Sigil’s shuffle-when-jumping mechanic was being extended to all Darkmoon Decks. Wrath of the Lich King Classic
      Classes Death Knight Fixed an issue where creating your first Death Knight would fail on the first attempt. Druid Nightsong Regalia (Tier 😎 4-set bonus heal now correctly triggers on each Rejuvenation. Developers’ note: The once-on-every-other-Rejuvenation cast is true to the behavior in patch 3.3.5. However, the wording of the Tier 8 set bonus does not reflect this, and instead indicates that Rejuvenation should provide an instant-heal on cast. It seemed like the fair thing to do would be to reimplement the once-on-every-Rejuvenation-cast trigger rate.

      Blizzard commented on their recent decision to make Primal Chaos transferable between alts.
      Earlier today, we reported about "account-wide" Primal Chaos and now Blizzard has commented on the quality-of-life improvement that went live via a hotfix.

      We’ve heard and agree with feedback that players have amassed surplus Primal Chaos on their mains while their alts need all the Primal Chaos they can get. With a hotfix that went live about 12 hours ago, we’ve added a method for transferring Primal Chaos to other characters on your account.

      It's been a while since we looked in on the Mythic+ logs and now's the perfect time, as we get to see the results of the new patch tuning! It's still looking pretty yellow on top, but there are plenty of changes all round as well, with Fire coming back with a vengeance.
      Note: The logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
      This past week was:
      Fortified , Bolstering, Storming (and Thundering )
      All Keys
      95th percentile
      While the very top of the top percentiles didn't change much with the new patch, with Subtlety and Outlaw switching places in 1 and 2, we do see a big change after that, as an entirely different Mage spec has come to claim the bronze! Fire rises out of the bottom of the chart and claims 3rd, taking it over from Arcane which sees itself 8 spots down. Balance remains strong and doesn't budge from 4th, while Destruction rocket-jumps 12 spots up to claim 5th. Windwalker and Havoc only drop 1, while Shadow takes its cue from Balance and stands still, Enhancement drops a little and Feral rises 2 to close out the top 10. The bottom 3 shuffle around a little but are still the same old 3 specs, with Frost DK getting the short end of the stick this time around.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      The top 4 for the generalist bracket reflects the top percentiles with the patch changes, but No.5 diverges from that pattern and sees Windwalkers... remain in place as last time we checked here. Havoc remains stable as Destruction takes over Demonology's place, Shadow rises and Arcane drops. 

      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      Tanks
      Prot Warriors have taken the helm in Mythic+ and moved past Blood DKs, as Vengeance remains in third and Paladins move past Monks, with Guardians down in last - but at least they're getting some significant buffs next week!

      Tank All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      Healers
      Preservation stands at the top, just like in raids, and Resto Druids are extremely close behind, as the top two switch positions, while Holy Paladins shoot into 3rd, moving past the Priests and leaving Monks down in the dumps.

      Healer All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
       
      For even more in-depth data for each individual key head on over to Warcraft Logs. And if you're interested in more info on the specs themselves you can always check out our class guides, as well as our Mythic+ guides and Mythic+ tier list.
