Patch 10.6.2 April Fools Patch Notes

Recommended Posts

65177-100-wow-expansion-leak-logo-artwor

The massive and highly expected patch 10.6.2 has been revealed in some leaked patch notes! This is totally real and serious, which becomes obvious from the no class changes due to balance being perfect, to the new underwater raid where you have to go back to the surface for air every few minutes, and, of course, the Season of Mystery, with literally everything getting randomized!

World of Warcraft Patch Notes
Version 10.6.2
April 1, 2024

Producers’ notes: Now that we’ve released a whole patch without any leaks, we can rest assured that we’ve eliminated leaks forever. There’s no way this one will leak. Nope. No chance.

CLASS CHANGES

We’re pleased to announce that, due to the unprecedented state of nearly-perfect balance across all classes in all content, we cannot find any spell or ability that would be better changed than left unchanged. This patch is a celebration of players’ incredible skills in both PvE and PvP, where all are equal and seemingly no class is undesirable.

Thank you very much for bringing about such a wonderful moment!

NEW RAID

Throughout Dragonflight, the adventurers of Azeroth have befriended, tamed, and ridden countless dragons across the skies of the Dragon Isles. Now, the time has finally come to go Dragondiving.

Vault of the Turbinates is a new raid that’s entirely underwater and literally breathtaking! All throughout the raid, you’ll thrill to the constant requirement to keep an eye on your air meter and coordinate with your raid team to go back up to the surface for air every couple of minutes. The all new Dragondiving system gives you five more action buttons to master while you’re down there, including Swim Forward, Surface Ascent, and Do a Little Pirouette. Bosses include Big Fish, Jawws, and the great apex predator philosopher, Shark Plato.

Did you even know these dragons could swim?

NEW DUNGEON

Those wild and crazy bronze dragonflight pranksters are at it again and again, and only you can save them from themselves’ selves in the Recursive Circular Loop. Enter this new old dungeon from anywhere you like, and then head in either direction, because the results are always the same as the last time you did this!

With five different bosses that may turn out to actually only be one boss at five different timepoints, you’ll never run out of challenges that cause déjà vu, a sense of familiarity, and the uncanny feeling that you recall having done this all before. And thanks to the bronze dragonflight’s presence inside the Recursive Circular Loop, you’ll never run out of challenges that cause déjà vu, a sense of familiarity, and the uncanny feeling that you recall having done this all before.

PLUNDERSTORM, THE SEQUEL

Coming very soon, we’re releasing a completely non-PvP sequel to Plunderstorm. This event has no PvP whatsoever, and it’s super easy to pick up all the rewards, as they’re just laying on the ground in the relative safety of the starting zones! Look for this relaxing in-game activity on your calendar under the name “Noblegarden”.

FOLLOWER BATTLEGROUNDS ON MOBILE

An exciting new series of battlegrounds for your followers is now available on your mobile device. Download the free app to build armies of all of your favorite Warcraft combatants such as Bat Rider, Gryphon Rider, and Warsong Rider. They’ll do battle all across Azeroth behind the most noble and prominent leaders such as Sneed, Old Murk Eye, and Charlga Razorflank. We’re referring to it as cheery disarray!


SEASON OF DISCOVERY

Coming in the next phase of Season of Discovery, we’re finally taking the original WoW classes back to their true selves with exciting new runes!

Nurse Warrior

  • Disinfective Stance – The warrior takes a cleansing position next to any suffering patients.

  • Furious Sews – Using your battle-tested needle and thread, you stitch wounds back together so fast that it’s a blur.

  • Cold Steel, Hot Blood Donation – As everyone knows, warriors have the best blood and the most blood and they’re always a universal donor to those in need.

  • Massacare – The warrior hits multiple patients really hard with bandages and soft words of encouragement.

  • Rehabilitating Shout – Only a warrior can make physical therapy as loud as it should be.

Lightheaded Paladin

  • Chilllumination – The paladin gets lost in thought and feels much more peaceful than before.
  • Take-a-Breakable Spirit – Your blessings cause all party members to get up and stretch, with a random chance that they’ll have a nice, shared yawn.
  • Relaxing Inquisitor – The paladin’s holy inquiries are delivered with feet up on the desk and hands behind the head, leaning back and making the accused feel 30% less anxiety.
  • Hush of Light – Guarantees that when you open a window blind, your pet cat will trot into the sunshaft and do that thing around your ankle a couple of times.
  • Lay on Your Hands – A spell of last resort when you have no pillow and you really need to just rest your eyes for a little while.

COMING SOON – Season of Mystery

There’s nothing more enjoyable in gaming than randomness, so we’ve taken Original WoW and dialed the uncertainty up to F on a scale of 1-10. The “F” stands for “fun”!

In Season of Mystery, everything you experience will be subject to a hidden roll. How many bear pelts does this quest-giver need? Could be 8. Could be 87! How fast is your mount today? It could be 140% run speed, and it could be 205%, and could be a slow day for horsie. Maybe horsie only goes 50% today. How exciting is that?!

In Season of Mystery, you’ll sometimes kill a murloc and receive a piece of tier 2 raid gear, and you’ll sometimes receive 1 copper, and you’ll sometimes receive an amusing fatal beating. What is this murloc doing in the middle of Stormwind? And why does it look like an alpaca?

The past... 2-3 years of April Fools jokes has been very much about Devs calling players Bad / Whiny in disguise of a "joke".
I can smell which type of devs are writing this, based on these poor "jokes".

I remember when the fools things used to be outrageous and funny, and NOT a dig at the playerbase.

I see they're salty about player reaction to Plunderstorm.  Maybe if they'd marketed it better, we would have liked it more.  Hmm....

These posts are usually funnier.

This just looks like it was written an hour ago because someone dropped the ball on getting it done sooner.

It seems like the overall quality of their April Fools' jokes has declined. 'Member when they used to create whole pages for their jokes? Like their Murloc RPG or some arcade games? I 'member.

I admit, this is a whole step back to what I'm used to. I still remember the pitch black dungeon with nothing to see and who could ever forget the abomination that were the Draenei face changes? I'll forget these notes within 5 minutes, but that image of that Draenei still lives rent-free in my head...

Very glad to see someone remembering the pitch black dark dungeon ' Scarlet Monastery Dungeon ' if not, could been Deadmines. I recall the map showing a Fog of war effect when looking at the map. Pretty much very early MMO champion were the time ☺️

      We've already talked about and taken a first look at the Delve-specific mount coming in the War Within, but now it's time to check out all of its customization options! 
      LeystTV has delved into the mount and shown off all the options, from the different colors to nose, wing, thruster, and top customizations, with glider, blimp, helicopter looks and more! There's even different versions of Horde and Alliance decals to choose from! 

      And these may not even be all the options present at launch, not to mention new ones Blizzard might add with later patches, making this one of the cooler mounts in the game.

      We have a Crest switch fix and weekly maximum increase, as well as a quest fix in retail, the big class tuning pass for Season of Discovery, and more in today's hotfixes.
      April 23 (Source)
      Items
      Season 3 (Dreaming) crests are now correctly removed from players' currency tabs. Players have received a small amount of gold for their unused Dreaming Crests. Players can now earn up to 120 crests of each type per week in Dragonflight Season 4 (was a maximum of 90 per week in Season 3). This will allow for up to 8 upgrades per week, per crest type (was 6 in Season 3). Developers' notes: For players who don't reach their maximum crest earnings in a given week, we've implemented the increasing-seasonal-cap system from previous seasons. Please note that this increase is likely applicable to Season 4 only. We expect the weekly maximum to return to 90 for The War Within Season One. Quests
      Resolved an issue where abandoning the quest "Something Worth Celebrating" could make it unavailable. Cataclysm Classic
      The dates for Children’s Week have been adjusted so that the holiday begins and ends three days later than previously scheduled. Season of Discovery
      Players who have completed the quest "Warranty Claim" but have misplaced their Pristine G-7 C.O.R.E. Processor before handing in the quest "Salvaging the Salvagematic" may now speak with the Lost and Found vendor Rix Xizzix in Booty Bay to recover the misplaced quest item. Fixed a Sunken Temple issue where the Atal'ai Defenders encounter would not reset properly. Druid The Natural Weapons talents now increases all damage done by druids in Season of Discovery, instead of just physical damage. The Gale Winds rune now reduces the mana cost of Hurricane by 60%. Swiftmend no longer consumes a Rejuvenation or Regrowth effect on the target when used. Developers’ notes: Please note that it does still require Rejuvenation or Regrowth to be on the target to be used. Hunter Rapid Killing now reduces the cooldown of Rapid Fire by 80% (was a reduction of 2 minutes). Chimera Shot weapon damage percent increased to 135% (was 120%). Explosive Shot base damage before attack power increased by 50%. Sniper Training has an additional new effect: while Sniper Training is at 5 stacks, Aimed Shot is instant. Serpent Spread now causes Multi-shot to apply Serpent Sting to its targets for 12 seconds (was 6 seconds). Steady Shot now deals 100% weapon damage (was 75%). Developers’ notes: There are more adjustments coming for Hunters. In general, we intend to improve the ranged playstyle and diminish the melee playstyle so that the two become more equivalent. Paladin Seal of Righteousness damage can now be critical hits. Sacred Shield’s duration is extended to 60 seconds (was 30 seconds). Crusader Strike has now gained an additional effect: Crusader strike now refreshes all judgement effects active on the target to a 30 second remaining duration. Seal of Martyrdom can now “twist” with other seals, including Seal of Command. Developers’ notes: Seal twisting was an interesting emergent effect that became popular during the original Burning Crusade, that utilized the slower server messaging system used in early versions of WoW to slightly extend the duration of the paladin’s active seal for a short time whenever a second seal was cast. This effectively allowed paladins to momentarily gain the benefit of two seals at once if they timed the application of a new seal to line up perfectly just before their weapon swing. We recreated this playstyle in Burning Crusade Classic and since then it’s been a popular request in other versions of original WoW, including Season of Discovery. As the game matures and we continue to listen to player feedback however, we recognize that for some, this is part of the charm and uniqueness of playing a paladin during those early eras of WoW’s history. We consider this change to be experimental and we will watch the performance and behavior of Retribution closely after this change. Priest Shadowform now increases all shadow damage done by 25% (was 15%). Rogue Saber Slash bleed now stacks up to 5 times. Saber Slash bleed now also increases the impact damage done by Sinister Strike and Saber Slash by 15% per stack for the rogue who applied the bleed. Saber Slash bleed now deals 3% of the rogue’s Attack Power in damage per tick (was 5%). Shaman Mental Dexterity now only triggers from dealing damage with Stormstrike and Lava Lash, and it now lasts 30 seconds (was 10 seconds). Burn now increases Flame Shock Damage by 100% and flame shock DoT duration by 6 seconds, and causes Flame Shock to strike up to 5 targets (was 3 targets). Developers’ notes: We’ve received a lot of feedback about the overall usability of mental dexterity, particularly for Elemental Shamans. This ability was not intended to be used by elemental, so the adjustments we’ve made are to help ensure its usage is a bit more enhancement-centric. To compensate, we’ve increased the output and usability of the Burn rune, with a slight quality-of-life improvement in the form of a Flame Shock duration increase which allows two Lava Burst casts to be used within a single Flame Shock duration.
