Dragonflight Patch 10.0.2 Hotfixes: January 11h

Recommended Posts

69809-official-dragonflight-expansion-pa
 

After the little brek we had from hotfixes yesterday and Monday's giant-sized batch, today's are just normal and feature more dungeon/Mythic+ tuning, a big Dragonrider's Cultivation change and more.

Blizzard LogoJanuary 11 (Source)

Dragonriding

  • Rebalanced Dragonrider's Cultivation Dragonrider's Cultivation, increasing the amount to 400% (from 10%) and reducing the duration to 3 sec (from 10 sec). This should provide more of a bonus for those that like to gather on the go.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Halls of Valor
    • Adjusted the visual of Sanctify cast by Hyrja in Halls of Valor.
  • Mythic+
    • Azure Vaults
      • Fixed an issue where being hit with Thundering while on the translocation path would cause you to repeat the path.
    • Shadowmoon Burial Grounds
      • Ner’zhul
        • Fixed an issue causing Ritual of Bones to regenerate health during combat.
    • Temple of the Jade Serpent
      • Wise Mari
        • Wise Mari will now die immediately and grant players credit for the encounter upon defeat.
      • Lorewalker Stonestep
        • Intensity damage decreased 40%.
        • Agony damage decreased by 40%.
        • Fixed an issue causing the healing bonus from Feeling of Superiority to increase per stack Fixed an issue causing Feeling of Superiority to be able to spread to multiple targets.
          • Developers’ note: We are lowering the damage output of Peril and Strife to account for fixing a bug that was causing the healing increase of Feeling of Superiority to increase per stack.

Items and Rewards

  • Fixed an issue with the Hood of Surging Time Hood of Surging Time where the Haste given would be lower than intended if the player’s pet attacked the new target first.

Not really clear why they felt compelled to reduce the duration on a vigor-improving feature when the total stacks of Vigor one can have is a mind blowing 6.  If you have all the glyphs.

When doing Herblore or Mining you'll be popping up and down towards the nodes you want. For the first 3-4 nodes you'll be perfectly fine, but if focusing on gathering it won't take long before you end up with 0-1 vigor (even at 6 vigor). At that point it happens quite quickly that you're grounded for over a minute waiting for vigor to recharge. It happens way more often than to someone who is fighting/questing since gatherers are only on the ground for 1-2 seconds before needing to launch again, while people who are fighting are usually on the ground for longer than 1-2 seconds and have their vigor charging during that time. If you do any herbloring or mining you'd know exactly what I mean.

The reason this is a welcome change is because the old version was pretty much worthless. You only recharge vigor while on the ground or at max flying speed. When gathering you're not long enough on the ground to recharge vigor and you're usually already at the next node before you reach maximum flying speed, meaning the 10% increase to recharging isn't actually even happening. With this change you can stay on the ground for 2-3 seconds longer after harvesting, actually have a short boost to recharging vigor and continue with much less vigor-problems. I think any gatherer will be very delighted to see this change.

Edit; I just tested it out on live servers and it went from completely worthless to 0,75-1 Vigor per node you harvest in just seconds. So yeah, it's definitely more useful than it was.

6 is still not enough imo. When I'm flying killing mobs is quicker than vigor reset, not a problem for undergeared/low dps players.

Shame they didn't improve the combat one to 50% or something too.

I wish they had like a hover ability that used like 1 vigor every 10 seconds, so we could get those pesky nodes that are stuck in mid air or spawned in unreachable positions from the ground. It would also be nice for scouting nodes, the nodes disappear so fast on the mini map because of how fast you are going most of the time. I’am not complaining about the speed by any means I actually love it, it’s just herbing and mining kinda suck with dragon riding really wish I could use my regular flying while doing so!

While I'm pretty sure the nodes in mid air issues are a bug (and were seen in previous xpacs even as far back as Wrath) - there's some late renown Dragonscale Expedition feature about mining/herbing while mounted.  

With enough Deftness stacked you could probably mine a sky-node while floating past it.  Maybe.

I just hope that if some streamer figures out how to do this that Blizz doesn't try to claim it was intended. Gah.

      Blizzard have posted some new known issues regarding the Trading Post, after having re-enabled refunds earlier today.
      Known Issues (Source)
      There are some issues that have affected the Trading Post and we wanted to provide an update along with where we are at in resolving them.
      We are aware of an issue where the completion credit for activities in the Traveler’s Log is occasionally resetting. We are actively working on addressing this issue and expect to have it resolved this week. Some players who complete the Traveler’s Log are not receiving the Ash’adar mount reward immediately in their chest at the Trading Post. We aim to have this resolved this week. Thank you for your patience.

      We have a big change to Mythic+ rating gains for +21 keys, Vault improvements, as well as class, quest, PvP changes and some Wrath Classic action as well in today's solid batch of hotfixes!
      February 1 (Source)
      Classes
      Evoker Fixed an issue where some Echoes could occasionally not be consumed by spell casts. Dungeons and Raids
      Vault of the Incarnates Fixed an issue preventing players from returning to other areas of the raid when returning to an instance with Broodkeeper Diurna already defeated. Kalecgos now summons a portal that will return players to the raid entrance after Broodkeeper Diurna has been defeated. Mythic+ Completing a Mythic 21 or higher dungeon, but exceeding the target time, now awards Mythic+ Rating as if the dungeon were a Mythic 20. Developers’ note: We award partial Mythic Rating credit for untimed dungeons (up to 40% over the target time) to recognize the skill and effort involved, and to encourage groups to stick together even if it seems like they’re going to fall a bit short of the timer. But at the very high end of the system, we’ve heard feedback that sometimes the surest path to further incremental Rating increases lies in seeking out keys a group may have no hope of clearing within the timer. We don’t want to change the way the system works for the vast majority of players who are working their way towards new Valor upgrade tiers, or cosmetic unlocks, but past the Mythic 20 threshold, there are no further tangible rewards other than the leaderboards and eventual end-of-season competition for the Thundering Hero title. The goal of this change is thus to ensure that the way to climb the leaderboards and earn a title meant for the best Mythic+ players in the world is by successfully completing dungeons within the allotted time, without negatively impacting the majority of players using the system. When this change takes effect, some players who are just barely at 2400 rating, with some of that rating coming from untimed 21+ keys, may drop below 2400 and need to re-earn that Rating in order to continue to upgrade new items to Rank 13. Items and Rewards
      Fixed an issue where certain item upgrade previews would display higher item levels than intended. Player versus Player
      Druid Feral Fixed an issue that could cause Leader of the Pack to not always apply correctly to the character while in Cat Form. Mage Frost Fixed an issue where Snowdrift would inconsistently be applied on elevated terrain. Quests
      Fixed an issue where Benthic gear could not be upgraded preventing the completion of “Create Your Own Strength.” System
      Fixed an issue that caused performance decreases when using certain addons.

        Wrath of the Lich King Classic
      Items and Rewards Stormjewels are now correctly unique-equippable. The Blood of the Old God trinket now has the correct attack power value trigger in its tooltip.

      Blizzard have announced that Trading Post items are now once again refundable (in the Americas, so it's unclear if the fix is also in for EU servers, as there has been no blue post there).
      Trading Post (Source)
      Update: Any items purchased from the Trading Post in the Americas are now be refundable. Items that were purchased during the non-refundable window can be refunded through the weekend to ensure affected players have the time to login and make any desired changes to their Trading Post purchases.

      We've looked at this week's Mythic+ Tier List based on the data from Subcreation.
      DISCLAIMER
      The following post is based on statistics provided by Subcreation, a website that gathers various Mythic+ data from live servers. Please note that the tier list is biased toward the top end because it only looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix and ignores keys below +16 and untimed runs.
      For the reasons mentioned above, the data presented here will always differ from the Mythic Tier Lists maintained by Petko.
      Data Reliability
      The data used in the post comes from Subcreation, a site maintained by Alcaras. Subcreation provides statistical analysis of Mythic+ dungeons, raids, and PvP in Shadowlands, and the data is provided via the Warcraft Logs API and Raider.io. If you'd like to support Subcreation, you can check out their Patreon.
      How the Data is Calculated
      The site looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix across all regions and examines their raider.io scores. For each dungeon and specialization, the site takes the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval of the top 100 runs for each specialization. The site then averages these lower bounds, one per dungeon, to get an overall average lower bound for each spec, which is finally used to create the tier list.
      The site takes the lower bounds of the 95% confidence interval calculated and then clusters them into 6 buckets using the Ckmeans algorithm. You can find more information by reading the site's FAQ.
      Tanks, Healers, Melee, and Ranged are all on the same scale. They're just shown separately for easier comparison across roles.
      Mythic+ Tier List for Dragonflight Season 1: Week #8
      The specs are ranked based on their lb_ci which stands for the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval. If a certain tier is missing, it's not occupied by any specialization.
      The following tier list is for this week's affixes: Tyrannical, Spiteful, Quaking, and Thundering.
      Tank Tier List
      Based on 1,600 runs, ranging in difficulty from +18 to +26.
