Dragonflight 10.1 Weekly Hotfix Summary: May 15th - 21st

Recommended Posts


We're taking a look at all the hotfixes that have arrived during the past 7 days, as Season 2 of Dragonflight enters its third week! We had a class tuning pass, a LOT of Mythic+ and raid tuning as well (with Brackenhide Hollow and Halls of Infusion getting the most attention), with plenty of achievement, item, quest fixes on top of all that!

        Player versus Player

        • Classes
          • Death Knight
            • Frost
              • Developers’ notes: Frost Death Knights have been on our radar as underperforming, but still effective in the right situations. We’re reducing their burst damage alongside their game-wide damage increases with the goal of a healthier overall damage profile.
              • [With weekly restarts] Pillar of Frost now increases Strength by 15% in PvP Combat (was 25%).
            • Unholy
              • Developers’ notes: We’ve been monitoring our changes to Reanimation and have felt its damage is too high relative to how much control Death Knight’s have over enemies’ positioning.
              • [With weekly restarts] Reanimation’s explosion now deals 15% of the targets health in Shadow damage (was 20%).
              • [With weekly restarts] Allied players can no longer see the explosion ring visual for Reanimation.
              • [With weekly restarts] Reanimation’s stun debuff is now using the correct spell icon.
          • Demon Hunter
            • Havoc
              • Developers’ notes: Our goal with Rain from Above is for it to have situational offensive and defensive usage. With recent increases to its damage, we’re seeing it used for offense more often than intended, so we’re bringing its damage down.
              • [With weekly restarts] Rain from Above (PvP Talent) Fel Lance damage reduced to 8% of target’s max health (was 10%).
          • Mage
            • Fire
              • Fixed a bug that caused Ignite to deal increased damage when spread while using the Glass Cannon PvP Talent.
              • Fixed an issue that caused Glass Cannon to not increase the damage of Ignite.
            • Frost
              • Fixed an issue that caused Frost Bomb to not grant a charge of Flurry when dispelled.
          • Monk
            • [With weekly restarts] Strength of Spirit now increases the healing of Expel Harm by up to 50% based on your missing health in PvP Combat (was 100%).
            • Windwalker
              • Developers’ notes: Expel Harm’s healing was dramatically increased with Season 2. We’re happy with the base healing of the spell, but modifiers from Reverse Harm and Strength of Spirit are making it more powerful than we intended.
              • [With weekly restarts] Reverse Harm now increases the healing done by Expel Harm by 30% (was 60%).
          • Priest
            • Holy
              • Developers’ notes: Holy Priests have continued to underperform in PvP, so we’re buffing several of their primary healing spells.
              • [With weekly restarts] Renew healing increased by 34% in PvP Combat (was 22%).
              • [With weekly restarts] Flash Heal healing increased by 52% in PvP Combat (was 40%).
              • [With weekly restarts] Heal healing increased by 57% in PvP Combat (was 43%).
              • [With weekly restarts] Holy Word: Sanctify healing increased by 10% in PvP Combat.

          • Shaman

            • Developers’ notes: The healing contribution from Earth Shield for the hybrid Shaman specs is above our target in PvP after recent buffs to the spell.
            • [With weekly restarts] Earth Shield healing reduced by 30% in PvP Combat for Enhancement and Elemental.
          • Warlock
            • [With weekly restarts] Call Observer now has 8% of the Warlock’s health (down from 20%).
            • Destruction
              • Developers’ notes: Destruction’s sustained DPS in PvP especially with instant casts is higher than we’d like. We feel Chaos Bolt is in a good state, so we’re targeting other areas of the kit to bring down their DPS.
              • [With weekly restarts] Incinerate damage reduced by 10% in PvP Combat.
              • [With weekly restarts] Shadowburn damage increased by 45% in PvP Combat (was 65%).
          • Warrior
            • Arms
              • Developers’ notes: We feel Arms Warrior’s burst window has been more effective than we would like in PvP. We’re shifting their damage profile slightly to increase their consistent pressure but decrease their burst damage.
              • [With weekly restarts] Sharpen Blade cooldown increased to 30 seconds and duration decreased by 2 seconds.
              • [With weekly restarts] Skullsplitter now causes expired bleeds to deal 65% damage (was 100%) in PvP Combat.
              • [With weekly restarts] Deep Wounds damage increased by 15% in PvP Combat.
              • [With weekly restarts] Rend no longer deals 15% reduced damage in PvP Combat.
              • [With weekly restarts] Fueled by Violence now heals for 70% (was 85%) of damage dealt by Deep Wounds in PvP Combat.


        • Mining/Herbalism
        • The quest “Power Unified” should now only consume one Spark of Shadowflame upon completion and reward 2.


        • Fixed an issue where Fyrakk would not appear during Fyrakk Assaults despite the Fyrakk’s Fury bar being full.
        • Fixed an issue which could cause players in the to not get credit for killing Captain Reykal during “Researchers Under Fire.”
        • Fixed an issue causing the progress bar for “Glimmerfish Before It’s Gone” to not appear.
        • Fixed an error where the world event “Researchers Under Fire" was not switching objectives correctly on the weekly reset.
        • Developers’ notes: This fixes a bug that was preventing the Researchers Under Fire event from rotating to the Zaqali Ruin Investigation. It should now be taking players to the Molten Overflow for the remainder of this reset period. The event will rotate each week between the Titan Lockdown and Zaqali Ruin Investigation areas.
        • Reputation gains from Zaralek Cavern will now be correctly boosted by the Sign of the Emissary from the ongoing World Quest event.
        • “I Need… a Tailor” will no longer consume all Vibrant Wildercloth Bolts in a player’s inventory on turn-in.

            The War Within pre-patch event will start on July 30th!
            Blizzard hasn't officially announced the release date for the War Within pre-patch, but the latest splash screen suggests otherwise.
            Called Radiant Echoes, the War Within pre-patch event begins on July 30, 2024. This gives players four weeks to join in before the new expansion officially drops on August 26 (or August 22 for Early Access holders).
            We expect the pre-patch to hit live servers on or before July 30!
            Check out the full splash screen in all its glory!

            Conzil FTP has completed Scholomance in 13.3 seconds in MoP Remix with a Level 20 character.
            While we understand that clipping isn't ideal, it's commonly used by most speedrunners in MoP Remix, and this run is no exception. Conzil defeated only the final boss of Scholomance in just 13.3 seconds.
            Why Level 20? Trial characters in Remix are capped at Level 20, allowing players to continue growing in power without surpassing that level, effectively creating an overpowered twink.

            Over the past two decades, WoW saw 10 expansions, each bringing new content and increasing storage demands. From the original "Vanilla" release in 2004, requiring just 4 GB, to the upcoming "The War Within" expansion in 2024, which demands at least 128 GB SSD storage, Blizzard's iconic MMORPG continues to grow. 
            Today, we're diving into how the storage demands for World of Warcraft have grown over the past 20 years. While the original game needed only 4 GB of storage, two decades of new content and improvements have significantly increased this requirement. Now, you'll need at least 128 GB of SSD storage to enjoy the latest expansion!
            The following timeline highlights the release dates and storage requirements of each WoW expansion from its inception with "Vanilla" to the highly anticipated "The War Within" in 2024. 

            Below is a recap of minimum storage requirements for all expansions. Thanks to Reddit user factor3x for the data!
            2004: World of Warcraft (Vanilla)
            Release Date: November 23, 2004 Storage Requirement: ~4 GB 2007: The Burning Crusade
            Release Date: January 16, 2007 Storage Requirement: ~10 GB 2008: Wrath of the Lich King
            Release Date: November 13, 2008 Storage Requirement: ~15 GB 2010: Cataclysm
            Release Date: December 7, 2010 Storage Requirement: ~25 GB 2012: Mists of Pandaria
            Release Date: September 25, 2012 Storage Requirement: ~30 GB 2014: Warlords of Draenor
            Release Date: November 13, 2014 Storage Requirement: ~35 GB 2016: Legion
            Release Date: August 30, 2016 Storage Requirement: ~45 GB 2018: Battle for Azeroth
            Release Date: August 14, 2018 Storage Requirement: ~70 GB 2020: Shadowlands
            Release Date: November 23, 2020 Storage Requirement: ~100 GB 2022: Dragonflight
            Release Date: November 28, 2022 Storage Requirement: ~120 GB 2024: The War Within
            Release Date: August 26, 2024 Storage Requirement: ~128 GB As you can see, the storage requirements have skyrocketed, but Blizzard has also improved their file system. They now use the same data for both retail and PTR, which has notably reduced the size of the clients. In the past, having separate retail and PTR clients took up a lot more disk space!

            The requirements for The Great Vault have been updated in the Beta for the first War Within Season!

            For raids, you'll need to defeat 2, 4, or 6 bosses from Nerub'ar Palace to unlock the slots. For dungeons, you must complete 1 Heroic, Mythic, or Timewalking Dungeons to unlock the slots. The PvP category has been removed from the Great Vault and replaced with a World tab. To unlock items in the World Tab, you need to complete 3, 6, or 12 Delves or World Activities. You’re probably familiar with Delves, but World Activities are new. Under World Activities, think of events like Researchers Under Fire or Superblooms in Dragonflight.
            Overall, the World Tab is a great option for players who don't participate in raids or dungeons. You can still unlock your 3 item slots by completing Delves or other outdoor events.
