Blizzard announced that the Gushing Wound Corruption Effect would get nerfed by 35% with this week's maintenance in all regions, but as for now, the nerf is still not active on live servers.
The Gushing Wound effect has just one rank and Blizzard left the Corruption Effect untouched until now because it was hard to acquire.
Now that MOTHER is selling all Corruption Effects on rotation, Blizzard predicts large stacking of Gushing Wound that could end up being even more powerful than Infinite Stars, so they decided to nerf the effect by 35%.
The Corruption Effect was not on sale yet and you can find a list of all Corruption Effects currently sold by MOTHER here.
We’re working on a hotfix that will reduce the damage done by the Gushing Wound Corruption Effect by 35%. We expect to make this change with maintenance in each region next week, starting on May 26.
While we tend to only make changes like this in regular balance patch intervals, Gushing Wound is currently the most efficient of all Corruption Effects. When making changes to Corruption Effects, we previously decided to leave it as-is, because there is only one rank available and Gushing Wound is a rare and relatively difficult Corruption to acquire. However, with this week’s updates that make Corruption Effects available from MOTHER, we expect that stacking large amounts of Gushing Wound will be even more efficient than Infinite Stars, which has explicit downsides when multiple targets are present.
We’ll have the change outlined in our Hotfixes Update soon after it goes live next week.
If the nerf goes live later tonight, we will cover it in the hotfix update.

Although Allied Races are last when it comes to new customization options that will be introduced in Shadowlands, silverleaf2520 came up with an interesting concept of skin and eye colors for Void Elves, Lightforged Draenei, Nightborne, and Highmountain Tauren.
The N'Zoth and Night Warrior-themed eyes for Void Elves look cool, what do you think?
Our preview of Shadowlands mounts continues with Jailer Hounds!
The mount currently has a placeholder name (PH Shadehound) and in the game files it's referred to as "Jailer Hound", so maybe it will come from Torghast.
Three tints of the mount are currently available: Black, Gray, and White.
