Dragonflight 10.2 Hotfixes, November 14th: New Class Tuning

Recommended Posts


The big class tuning pass has arrived, but we have more than just the announced changes, as some specs got even more! There's also the change to consumable use in rated PvP, item adjustments and more, so let's dive in. The Amirdrassil tier set bonus changes were not included, however, so you'll have to head on over to the original tuning announcement for those.

  • Death Knight
  • Demon Hunter
    • Havoc
      • Chaotic Disposition Chaotic Disposition has been reworked to directly benefit the damage of affected abilities instead of duplicating portions of the damage they dealt. The amount of damage generated by the effect has not changed.
      • Chaotic Disposition Chaotic Disposition : Your Chaos damage has a 7.77% chance to be increased by 17%, occurring up to 3/7 total times.
    • Vengeance
  • Druid
    • Guardian
      • Mangle Mangle now grants 12 Rage (was 10).
      • Cat Form Cat Form energy regeneration increased by 50% (was 35%).
    • Balance
      • Cat Form Cat Form energy regeneration increased by 50% (was 35%).
    • Restoration
      • Rip Rip damage increased by 140%. Does not apply in PvP Combat.
      • Rake Rake damage increased by 60%.
      • Shred Shred damage increased by 140%.
      • Ferocious Bite Ferocious Bite damage increased by 200%. Does not apply in PvP Combat.
      • Cat Form Cat Form energy regeneration increased by 50% (was 35%).
  • Evoker
    • Augmentation
    • Developers’ notes: The amount of utility that Augmentation Evoker brings on top of its high damage has proven to be too powerful despite recent changes. Therefore we are further reducing their damage contributions to the group in order to balance them against other specializations.
  • Hunter
    • Various pet abilities that deal damage such as Kill Command Kill Command, Bite Bite, and Flanking Strike Flanking Strike will now properly reattribute damage to an Augmentation Evoker who has buffed the Hunter in the combat log.
    • Beast Mastery
      • Corrected an issue where the Bloody Frenzy Bloody Frenzy talent was granting the effects of Beast Cleave Beast Cleave for longer durations than intended and was not properly updating the personal nameplate Beast Cleave icon.
  • Paladin
    • Retribution
      • All ability damage increased by 3%.
  • Priest
    • Discipline
    • Developers’ notes: Discipline healing throughput (particularly in raids) is slightly higher than we would like, given their damage and utility contributions to the group. To balance them, we’re reducing some talents that are giving a lot of power for only 1 talent point. The goal is to improve talent balance while also bringing them in line with other healers.
  • Rogue
  • Warlock
    • Destruction
    • Demonology
      • Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible 2-piece Set Bonus now reduces the cooldown of Grimoire: Felguard Grimoire: Felguard by 0.5 second (was 1 second).
      • Developers’ notes: We’re reducing the power of Demonology’s previous set bonus to bring it in line with other set bonuses from Aberrus.


  • Renown items purchased from Moon Priestess Lasara should now be eligible for conversion at the Revival Catalyst.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented Emerald Dream pets from being caged.
  • Seedbloom Seedbloom now stacks.
  • Jewelcrafting

Player versus Player

      Blizzard has adjusted the price of Imminence of Krag'wa's Executor to 450 Tender. Players who bought it will be refunded 50 Tender via a hotfix.
      Blizzard accidentally set the price of the Imminence of Krag'wa's Executor set to 500. They've released a hotfix that sets the price to 450 Tender. Another hotfix is coming for those who already bought it.
      We’ve had a trend of pricing Trading Post class sets at 450 Trader’s Tender, and for the first few days of December, a bug caused the Imminence of Krag’wa’s Executor set to sell for 500 Tender. We’ve now hotfixed the game to set that price at 450, as we originally intended.
      If you’ve already purchased the set, please hang tight. We’re working on a second hotfix that will refund you the extra 50 Tender. You don’t have to take any steps. That refund will come as soon as we can implement it this month.
      We apologize for the mix-up.

      This is your last chance to get the Azure Worldchiller! The mount is going away on December 7!
      If you haven't obtained Azure Worldchiller yet, now's a good time to head to Tanaris and defeat Doombringer! The mount's going away on December 7.
      Visit your faction's portal room and take the portal to Caverns of Time. Here, you will find Doomwalker, a giant world boss walking near the entrance to the Caverns of Time. Use the Group Finder to search for a group and defeat him! Azure Worldchiller is a 100% drop. 

      You can also buy Illidari Doomhawk, last year's mount from Historian Ma'di for 5,000 Timewarped Badges.

      We weren't quite done with the Covenant ability-turned-class-talent upgrades in patch 10.2.5! A recent PTR build added 5 more classes to the list as the visuals got elevated, and Opaldiia showcased them as well! The Monk's Faeline Stomp is looking pretty great in particular and Spear of Bastion finally getting some humane and non-blinding visuals.
