Last updated on Jan 06, 2020 at 21:14 by Stan 1 comment

In this article, you are going to find a list of all the Mage changes for World of Warcraft Patch 8.3: Visions of N'Zoth.


Frost Mage

  • Ice Lance Icon Ice Lance damage increased by 20%.
    • Developers' note: Ice Lance Icon Ice Lance damage has not kept up with Mastery: Icicles Icon Mastery: Icicles scaling, making builds that ignore Ice Lance Icon Ice Lance possible. The intent of this change is to give Frost Mages a better incentive to use Ice Lance Icon Ice Lance in their rotation.

Bug Fixes

  • Glacial Spike Icon Glacial Spike (Talent) is no longer enabled without the required number of icicles after using an instant-cast Flurry Icon Flurry.
  • Frost Nova Icon Frost Nova once again overrides their Water Elemental's Freeze Icon Freeze root even if the Frost Nova Icon Frost Nova root would last longer.
  • Mages can again stay invisible even if under the effect of a channeled ability when they cast Mass Invisibility Icon Mass Invisibility.
