Recommended Posts

GF8AvBJXQAAjIiz.jpg:large

There's a lot of class changes in today's SoD Phase 2 hotfixes, as well as plenty of improvements to the STV Blood Moon PvP event and even a little something for Classic Era! There were also improvements for the PvP event related to performance, as Josh Greenfield aka Aggrend commented:

And here are the hotfixes.

WoW Classic: Season of Discovery

  • Druid
    • Starsurge was incorrectly getting 30% additional critical strike chance when Eclipse (Lunar) was active. It now only gets 30% increased critical strike chance from Eclipse (Solar).
  • Hunter
    • Chimera Shot - Scorpid is now properly mitigated by Weapon Chains and reduction to Disarm effects.
  • Paladin
    • Fixed an issue where Seal of Righteousness ranks 4 and higher did less damage than rank 3. This fix has been applied to Season of Discovery and Classic Era.
  • Priest
    • Spirit of Redemption will no longer be prevented from triggering for Priests whose Dispersion or Pain Suppression is on cooldown.
    • Each Priest now correctly creates their own separate stack of Mind Spike effects on the target, and consumes only their own stack.
    • Fixed an issue where Prayer of Mending was double dipping with Spiritual Healing, and was also increasing by 10% per bounce on top of that.
  • Shaman
    • Fixed an issue where the benefit of Dual Wield Specialization rune could be lost for Shamans when swapping weapon configurations.
    • Fixed an issue where Stormstrike would sometimes do offhand damage despite no offhand equipped.
    • The range on Decoy Totem is now the correctly intended 30 yards, matching the radius of its effect preventing movement impairment.
  • Warlock
    • Subjugate Demon used against players in Metamorphosis now has a 10 second duration, with diminishing duration like other crowd-control effects used on players. It is considered a Charm effect like Mind Control.
  • Stranglethorn Vale PvP Event
    • Warlocks and Hunters participating in the Blood Moon will now resurrect with their last active pet.
    • Fixed an interaction with Blood Moon and Spirit of Redemption resurrecting the fallen Priest earlier than intended.
    • Fixed an issue with Blood Coin turn-ins when a player is the victim of Subjugate Demon or Mind Control.
    • Drained of Blood during the Blood Moon event now also grants immunity to movement impairing effects.
    • Fixed an issue where stacks of Blood for the Blood Loa could sometimes exceed the intended 255.
    • The Chosen of the Blood Loa will now be visible in the spirit world.

WoW Classic Era

  • Paladin
    • Fixed an issue where Seal of Righteousness ranks 4 and higher did less damage than rank 3. This fix has been applied to Season of Discovery and Classic Era.

      Players have been noticing that Righteous Orbs were suddenly no longer dropping, and now Blizzard have confirmed that there was a hotfix, and that they were never intended to drop before Phase 4.
      Righteous Orbs (Source)
      With a hotfix that went live to all realms earlier today, Righteous Orbs no longer drop during Phase 3 of Season of Discovery.
      They’ll become available as intended in Phase 4.

      Blizzard will be adding a one-time fix for Season of Discovery players who used Bloodstained Commendations to increase their PvP rank, but forgot about the 15 kill minimum by adding said 15 Honorable Kills at this week's reset. 
      Bloodstained Commendations (Source)
      We identified a significant number of players who appear to have been trying for Rank, and used a lot of Bloodstained Commendations before the deadline, but did not obtain the requisite HKs that week. We’ve developed a one-time-only fixup for you.
      On Tuesday, April 16, during scheduled maintenance – before the weekly calculations are started for the week of April 9-16 – we’re going to attempt to change the record for those player-characters who fit the above description for the week of April 2-9. The fixup will essentially change your history to make it look as though you got the requisite 15 HKs during the previous week.

      We have a class tuning pass coming to SoD Phase 3 with next week's reset. Druids and Warlocks get the most changes, and 6 classes in total are affected.
      Class Tuning (Source)
      Throughout the beginning of phase 3, we’ve closely monitored in-game progress, feedback from the community, and bug reports.
      With scheduled weekly maintenance next week, we’ll make the following class adjustments.
      Druid
      Starsurge no longer consumes Clearcasting procs from Omen of Clarity. Skull Bash rune moved to the Hands slot (was the Leg slot). Lacerate rune moved to the Leg slot (was Hands). Lacerate threat increased substantially. Paladin
      Light’s Grace rune moved to the Bracer slot (was Helm). Rogue
      Focused attacks now generates 3 additional energy (up from 2) Shaman
      The Internal Cooldown for Overcharged has been increased to 3 seconds Warlock
      Life tap now grants mana return to warlock pets as well Unstable Affliction’s damage has been increased by roughly 120% Warlocks with Metamorphosis active and the Master Demonologist talent will now gain increased threat generation when they summon an Imp or Felguard (was decreased threat generation). Warrior
      Victory Rush heal increased to 30% of the Warrior’s health (was 10%).

      We have another combo hotfix platter with retail and Season of Discovery, with 10.2.6 getting two Druid fixes, while SoD Phase 3 gets a lot of class changes, Darkmoon card tuning, and a raid fix.
      April 11 (Source)
      Classes
      Druid Balance Fixed a bug that could prevent a Druid with Radiant Moonlight who died and resurrected from getting more than one cast of Full Moon before it resets to New Moon. Primordial Arcanic Pulsar progress now resets on raid encounter start. Feral Damage dealt from  Berserk: Frenzy and  Burning Frenzy (Seasons 3 and 4 set armor 4-piece bonus) will now log correctly when buffed by an Augmentation Evoker. Season of Discovery
      Darkmoon Card: Overgrowth proc chance increased to 10% (was 5%). Darkmoon Card: Decay now procs from ranged attacks and abilities. Anguish of the Dream’s bonus damage on next ability will no longer be consumed by professions. “Jungle Durian” now rewards 20 Jungle Durians (was 10). Rogue Cheap Shot’s stun effect can now correctly apply to targets under the effects of Goblin Rocket Helmet’s Reckless Charge. Combat Potency and Deadly Brew can no longer proc from Fiery Weapon procs. Shaman Rolling Thunder now correctly restores 2% of the Shaman’s total mana per Lightning Shield charge released. Shamans should now appropriately have access to Rank 4 of Fire Nova (was Fire Nova Totem) when the rune is engraved. Warlock Unstable Affliction is now affected by Haunt’s increase. Damage over time effects that crit through the Pandemic rune will now be able to activate Dance of the Wicked. Felguards summoned by Warlocks are now given an appropriate demon name. Warrior Gladiator Stance will now appear at the end of your stance bar instead of the beginning and will no longer rearrange the order of your stances for the purpose of stance macros. Sunken Temple Fixed an issue that would occasionally cause Dreamscythe and Weaver to evade when their target survived falling into the Pit of Sacrifice.

      One of the most famous deaths in Classic Hardcore made it over into Season of Discovery Phase 3! The developers added a corpse in the new Sunken Temple raid, close to where Guzu's orc fell and thus made the legendary hole-in-one death even more so.
      Originally spotted by Eric264, here's Guzu himself finding his gear-accurate body (although the Alexstrasza mousepad is nowhere to be found), a little bit off to the side of where he actually fell.

      In case you weren't familiar with the death itself, it has not one, but two Jormungars  hilarious animations based on it, including one by the legendary Hurricane, which you can check out here. As for the death itself, here it is:


      That's a really elaborate way to get an NPC based on you in the game, and I love it!
