  • Traveler’s Anima Cache can no longer be consumed by players who have not yet selected a Covenant causing the anima to be sent into the ether.
Quests
  • The level requirement to skip the Maw introduction is now 50 (was 48).
    • Developers’ note: We made this change to the level requirement because characters who skipped the Maw introduction at level 48 would end up being a level behind the Bastion introduction quest level requirements, thus leaving them in an awkward state of where to go next.

November 4

Classes
  • The following abilities have been updated to have their cooldowns reset when a raid boss encounter ends:
  • The following Covenant abilities have been updated to have their cooldowns reset when a raid boss encounter ends:

Items and Rewards
  • Queen’s Conservatory catalysts now stack to 200 (was 20).
  • The Forgotten Feather in Korthia can once again be looted.
  • Fixed an issue where the Gateway Control Shard could be used while under certain effects such as stun and wouldn’t break characters out of stealth.
Player versus Player
  • Monk
    • Windwalker
      • Fixed an issue that caused [Wind Waker]'s (PvP Talent) radius to be larger than intended, and also cleared movement impairing effects off of the Monk prior to having two stacks.
Professions
  • Inscription
    • The Mark of the Midnight Runestag recipe no longer requires Revered with the Wild Hunt to learn.
Quests
  • "N [50-60 Daily] Observing Victory" now displays its turn-in location on the Oribos map.
  • Underbelly Lowlifes during the quest "Secrets of the Underbelly" now deal the appropriate amount of damage.
Torghast, Tower of the Damned

WoW Companion App
  • Fixed an issue preventing Android 12 users from installing the app.

November 3

Classes
  • Paladin
    • Retribution
Creatures and NPCs
  • Fixed an issue that was causing Observer Yorik to respawn too quickly.
Items and Rewards
  • Temporarily removed the Conquest and Valor cap until the next season begins.
    • Developers’ note: Early in a season, it’s beneficial to pace gear acquisition by adding a maximum amount of Conquest and Valor that can be earned weekly to prevent having a dominant advantage by playing an excessive amount of hours in PvP and Mythic+. As the weeks go by and the cap increases, we reach a point where there’s no longer a dominant advantage in gear acquisition with grinding Conquest and Valor and it’s friendlier to simply remove the cap entirely for those who are catching up or gearing alts until the next season begins. We’ve reached that point and have removed the Conquest and Valor caps for the rest of Season 2. When the next season begins, all Conquest and Valor will be converted into gold and sent to the character’s mail.
Player versus Player
  • Paladin
    • Protection
      •  [Righteous Might] (Necrolord Conduit) damage and healing reduced by 50% in PvP combat.
        • Developers’ note: We initially tuned the Righteous Might conduit for Necrolord Paladins with both PvE and Retribution Paladins in mind, but due to a combination of synergies and Protection-specific multipliers, Protection Paladins were able to near-double the effect of an already-buffed Conduit to create a deadly round-start burst outlier in PvP matches. We’re cutting down its effectiveness in PvP while we keep an eye on the conduit’s impact in PvE to see if follow-up tuning is necessary over the coming days.
Quests
  • Players who skipped the Maw intro while in a Timewalking Campaign should no longer be sent back to Stormwind or Orgrimmar when they reach level 50.
  • Covenant Campaigns blocked behind the Callings tutorial quest should now be properly flagged to proceed the next time they visit Oribos or their Sanctum Hall.
  • Fixed an issue where some characters who switched to the Necrolord covenant would not be able to see Emeni during the quest, “N [60] Never Had a Friend Like Me.”
User Interface and Accessibility
  • Fixed an issue that caused Mythic+ Rating to display incorrectly in Group Finder.
  • Fixed an issue where the tooltips for some Adventures companions were displaying with a gray background.
Burning Crusade Classic
  • You can now report players from the /who menu.
  • Fixed an issue where an extra confirmation pop-up would appear when entering a War Game.
  • Fixed an issue where keybinds were not correctly loading for the War Game Commentator User Interface.

November 2

  • Items and Rewards
    • The Unchained Equipment Chest does not provide PvP items that include sockets or tertiary stats.
      • Developers' note: This was an oversight in how the item was set up on the 9.1.5 PTR. We don't intend to create situations where the best way to play PvP is to funnel gear from your alts to your main character.
    • Fixed an issue where the Well-Honed Instincts conduit was dropping for non-Druids.

Burning Crusade Classic

  • Fixed an issue where players who accepted a battle resurrection into a raid boss encounter after releasing their spirit could be teleported to their Hearthstone location.

November 1

Hotfixes: October 1 - 22 | 2021-10-22 by Blizzard Entertainment

October 22

Dungeons and Raids

  • Sanctum of Domination
    • Sylvanas Windrunner
      • Fixed an issue where the Death Knives warning aura could be accidentally removed by immunity effects, causing incalculable chaos.

Quests

  • Kael'thas Sunstrider should no longer be visible in chains if he is also by your side while in Sinfall for the quest “The “Unwelcome” Guests.”
  • Fixed an issue that caused Thenios to be missing for some players who were trying to turn in “Mysterious Soul Mirror.”

October 12

Dungeons and Raids

  • Sanctum of Domination
    • Eye of the Jailer
      • Resolved an issue that prevented Monk’s Faeline Stomp (Night Fae Ability) from consistently dealing damage.

Burning Crusade Classic

  • All "pre-made" groups may now queue for Battlegrounds. Grouped players will primarily face opponents who queued in groups of similar sizes.
    • Developers' note: With this change, the matchmaker will now match raid groups of 6 or more players against at least one group of 6 or more players. If the total number of players in your raid is smaller than the maximum size of the Battleground, the matchmaker will automatically fill your side with other groups or individuals. If there are no large pre-mades in the queue, party groups of 5 or fewer players will be placed against other parties of 5 or fewer players. Queuing alone or in small parties will not guarantee an opposing team with no large pre-mades.

WoW Classic

  • Restored the green face paint for male Trolls that had picked the corresponding hair color.

October 5

Dungeons and Raids

  • Sanctum of Domination

WoW Classic

    • Developers' note: We initially set up Brewfest 2021 in Burning Crusade Classic to run for the same duration as it ran in 2007 in original Burning Crusade, but we've decided to bring it back for another day.
  • Hunter

WoW Classic

  • Fixed an issue where some spells were missing visual effects.

October 1

Classes

Dungeons and Raids

  • Sanctum of Domination
    • Painsmith Raznal
      • Fixed an issue causing Painsmith to sometimes stop and cast the weapon throw of Cruciform Axe, Reverberating Hammer, and Dualblade Scythe during his transition.
      • Fixed an issue causing Shadowsteel Chains to persist into Stage Two if players were affected by Podtender (Dreamweaver Soulbind) during the transition.

WoW Classic

Hotfixes: September 2 - 28 | 2021-09-03 by Blizzard Entertainment

September 28

Dungeons and Raids

  • Sanctum of Domination
    • Kel'Thuzad
      • Fixed an issue where Howling Blizzard ice patches would still explode after entering the Phylactery Phase.

Player versus Player

  • The amount of [Conquest] awarded has been increased from all activities by about 70%.

Burning Crusade Classic

September 27

Dungeons and Raids

  • Sanctum of Domination
    • Kel'Thuzad
      • Howling Blizzard ice patches are now immediately removed when pushing to his Phylactery Phase.
  • Theater of Pain
    • Fixed an issue where gladiators in the Halls of Might could sometimes remain immune to player abilities after finishing their duel.

Burning Crusade Classic

  • [With realm restarts] Spell Haste now lowers the global cooldown (GCD) to a minimum of 1.0 second (was 0.75 seconds).
    • Developers' note: This hotfix is intended to bring the behavior of the GCD in line with version 2.4.0 of Burning Crusade, which the gameplay conditions of Burning Crusade Classic 2.5.2 are based on. Due to a bug in the original 2.4.0 code, players with high Spell Haste in original Burning Crusade were sometimes able to cast certain spells less than second apart, and they would also sometimes be delayed to over a second, based on how their actions were lining up with the server's tick rate. We've decided that the fairest and most accurate thing we could do is to replicate the intent of the original game and enforce that Spell Haste cannot reduce the GCD below 1.0 second.

September 24

Achievements

  •  [On the Offensive] now requires 6 of the covenant assault achievements to be completed (was 9).

Achievements

Dungeons and Raids

  • Sanctum of Domination
    • Painsmith Raznal
      • [With realm restarts] Reduced the distance between floor spike gaps during Stage Two on Mythic difficulty.

      • [With realm restarts] Shadowsteel Chains periodic damage reduced by 15% on Mythic difficulty.

    • Kel'Thuzad
      • [With realm restarts] Kel'Thuzad health reduced by 5% on Mythic difficulty.
      • [With realm restarts] Remnant of Kel'Thuzad health reduced by 20% on Mythic difficulty.

      • [With realm restarts] Soul Reaver health reduced by 20% on Mythic difficulty.
      • [With realm restarts] Frozen Destruction's initial damage reduced by 40% on Mythic difficulty.
      • [With realm restarts] Frozen Destruction's damage over time effect reduced by 10% and the duration reduced to 8 seconds (was 10 seconds) on Mythic difficulty.
      • [With realm restarts] Fixed an issue where Kel'Thuzad would cast abilities during Howling Blizzard on Mythic difficulty.
      • [With realm restarts] Howling Blizzard now inflicts stacking damage over the duration of the channel on Mythic difficulty.
        • Developers' note: As we saw the community strategies for defeating Kel'Thuzad on Mythic difficulty settle on a preferred approach that involved long stretches of time stalling, waiting for cooldowns to come back up, we started exploring ways of changing the encounter so that this no longer felt required. Players have been clear from the outset that this was frustrating and tedious gameplay, or lack thereof. But we also wanted to be careful to avoid increasing the difficulty of the encounter or introducing other issues and force guilds to re-learn the encounter. We internally tested a few different approaches, including just bypassing the waiting period by resetting cooldowns like we would at the start of an encounter (a portion of which was recently seen on the 9.1.5 Public Test Realm), but testing indicated that this benefited some specs much more than others, and caused worry that groups reaching the encounter now would feel pressure to stack those specs for an easier time. The changes we've settled on aim at making it impossible to stall indefinitely, while reducing the difficulty of key elements of the encounter to make it no longer feel required.
    • Sylvanas Windrunner

      • [With realm restarts] Dark Sentinels health reduced by 15% on Mythic difficulty.

      • [With realm restarts] Ranger's Heartseeker, Banshee's Heartseeker, and Banshee's Blades damage reduced by 8% on Mythic difficulty.
      • Resolved an issue which could cause Ruin to unintentionally fail to inflict damage.
  • The Necrotic Wake
    • Surgeon Stitchflesh
      • [With realm restarts] Fixed an issue that caused the first Stitchflesh's Creation to not increase its applications of Festering Rot.

  • Shaman
    • Restoration
      • [With regional restarts] Mana regeneration reduced by 55% in PvP combat (was 50%).
Items and Rewards
  • The maximum value the Anima Reservoir can hold has been greatly increased to 200,000 (was 35,000).
    • Developers' note: We'll be introducing a way for characters who have fully upgraded a Covenant Sanctum to transfer anima, either to their alts or to other covenants on the same character, and so we're increasing the anima cap in anticipation of this change.
  • Shards of Domination
    • [With regional restarts] All Domination gear now activate a gem set bonus.
    • [With regional restarts] Sanctum of Domination Legs for all armor types now activate a gem set bonus.

If you have previously acquired an item affected by this change but have destroyed it, you can use the Item Restoration service to recreate it after the hotfix goes live with this week's maintenance. Please note, there is no benefit from having the activation spell twice.

    • Fixed an issue that unintentionally allowed players to leave the dungeon with the Sinfall Boon aura.
Items and Rewards
  • The Soultwining Crescent and  [Death-Bound Shard] should now grant conduits by your current specialization instead of by your class.
    • Developers' note: Players will need to switch their specialization to get conduits for the other specs, just changing your Loot Specialization will not work.
  • The Death-Bound Shard is more likely to appear on completion of the Adamant Vaults in Torghast, Tower of the Damned.
  • The  [Chronicle of Lost Memories] item is now also available for 2000 Cataloged Research from Archivist Roh-Suir when you have Tier 3 Research with The Archivists' Codex.
    • Developers' note: Thank you for all of your feedback on alts and how difficult it can be to acquire some legendary patterns, especially from Castle Nathria now that Sanctum of Domination is out. We hope that this change can give players a new way to acquire their last few legendaries by engaging with the newer Korthia content.
  • Increased the amount of Korthite Crystals rewarded in the Maw Assault box, Korthia weekly box, and Broker daily quests.
  • Shards of Domination
    •  [Shard of Zed] is now affected by the caster's Versatility, rather than the target's Versatility.

Achievements
  • Death's Advance, The Archivists' Codex, Ve'nari, and The Avowed reputations should now count towards the Exalted Reputation achievements.
    • Developers' note: Some players who have already capped out their reputation with these factions may not see these update until next week's restarts. We have a code change coming with restarts that will fix those players, but we want to get the data updated to prevent new players from running into the issue.
Classes
Dungeons and Raids
  • Sanctum of Domination
    • Fatescribe Roh-Kalo
      • The Loom of Fates should more easily maintain counterclockwise rotation without interruption.
  • Mists of Tirna Scithe
    • Ingra Maloch
      • Repulsive Visage will no longer be cast when Droman Oulfarran is at 25% HP or less.
        • Developers' note: Currently it's possible to get Oulfarran to 20% just as Maloch begins casting Repulsive Visage, and this can feel frustrating and difficult to control when it happens. The goal of this change is to give players a small buffer so they can play around this ability more reliably.
Quests

August 10

Korthia and the Maw
  • A new set of grapple points were added to connect the southwest part of the Seeker's Quorum to the Vault of Secrets island to the south.
    • Developers' note: This is available once your character has completed Chapter 3 in Korthia and should allow players close to the Vault to get across without having to go back to town and take the flayedwing flight.
  • The Tormentors of Torghast will now arrive at their destination in the Maw 5 minutes after the event announcement is broadcast.

  • Druid
  • Monk
    • Resolved an issue that allowed Monks to activate [Transcendence: Transfer] while crowd-controlled by certain types of effects.
Dungeons and Raids
  • Timewalking
    • Increased experience earned from Timewalking dungeon completion by 50%.
      • Developers' note: There was a bug introduced in 9.1 that caused Timewalking to give much more completion experience than the UI advertised, ramping up more the lower-level the base expansion was, which is why this wasn't noticed with Warlords of Draenor Timewalking a few weeks ago. The intent is for all Timewalking weeks to give comparable experience – we put in a quick fix last night and have deployed the proper fix today. We also took the opportunity to recalibrate Timewalking experience and increase it.
Items and Rewards
  • Shards of Domination
    • The tooltip for Shards of Domination bonuses have been updated to more clearly indicate that the Rune Words are only active in the Maw or related areas. This is a tooltip change only.
Burning Crusade Classic
  • The Midsummer Fire Festival has been configured to run for 16 days, in order to give players a little extra time to complete its many quests. This means that Burning Blossoms, which expire after being held for 14 days, may disappear if they were collected in the first two days of the event and then never spent.

August 3

Items and Rewards
  • Shards of Domination
    • Shards of Domination can no longer be inserted into an occupied socket.
      • Developers' notes: We've made this change to prevent accidentally losing a shard by inserting another shard in its place without extracting it first. You can purchase a Soulfire Chisel to extract embedded shards from Bonesmith Heirmir in Korthia for 2500 Stygia.
    • Fixed a bug which counted critical overhealing towards Winds of Winter's accumulated value. Only effective healing and damage are intended to count towards the effect.

Hotfixes: July 1 - 30 | 2021-07-30 by Blizzard Entertainment

July 30

Items and Rewards
  • Shards of Domination
    • [With weekly maintenance in each region] Blood Link – The damage and healing amount has been increased at all ranks by 20%.
    • [With weekly maintenance in each region] Winds of Winter – The amount of damage and healing stored by the Winds has been increased at all ranks by ~45%.
      • Developers' note: The difference between the three Rune Words for the Shards of Domination system is bigger than we want it to be. We have identified and fixed a bug in Winds of Winter which was preventing some damaging and healing abilities from counting towards its total, and we have retuned Winds of Winter and Blood Link so that the relative power between Rune Word bonuses is more balanced.
    •  [Jotungeirr, Destiny's Call] will now reset its cooldown at the end of boss encounters.
    • Fixed an issue where  [Ticking Sack of Terror] could trigger more than intended in the presence of multiple trinkets.

      • Fixed an issue where players could get stuck in the Stage 1 arena when releasing after she's been defeated.
  • Mythic+
    • Tormented Affix
      • The spawn location of the 2nd Tormented Affix lieutenant in The Necrotic Wake has been adjusted.
      • Anima Orbs dropped by Tormented Lieutenants should now be easier to interact with when they're near other players or NPCs.
      • Resolved issues where several spells cast by Lieutenants could target and damage pets.
      • Biting Cold can now be defended against with Spell Reflection.
      • Carnage can now be dodged and parried.
      • Resolved and issue that caused the pre-cast effect of Scorching Blast to not appear on specific graphic settings.
  • The Necrotic Wake
    • Fixed an issue where player immunity effects could cancel the effects of Discharged Anima.
Items and Rewards
  • Shards of Domination
    • Earlier this week, a change to the power of Shards of Domination set bonuses (e.g. Chaos Bane) was briefly applied to the live game. We are no longer planning to proceed with that change at all. We may make further adjustments in the coming days, but we will not reduce the power of Shards now that many players have earned and upgraded them.
Torghast, Tower of the Damned
  • An anvil to repair your gear is now available at the start of each combat and boss floor.
  • Anima Powers

July 27

Classes
  • Druid
    • Fixed an issue where [Kindred Affinity] (Runecarving Power) would persist even after the Legendary was removed.
  • Monk
    • Fixed an issue that could cause [Touch of Death] to be unable to be used on targets at the correct health threshold.
Creatures and NPCs
Dungeons and Raids
  • Sanctum of Domination
    • Remnant of Ner'zhul
      • Adjusted the recast of Orb of Torment to ensure it is cast more consistently on Mythic difficulty.
      • Orbs of Torment have had their health reduced by 66% on Mythic difficulty.
      • Adjusted the recast of Malevolence to ensure it is cast more consistently on Mythic difficulty.
    • Kel'Thuzad
      • No longer maintains his mana between phases, and now resets to 100 mana when he exits the Phylactery Phase.
        • Developers' note: This should alleviate issues where pushing into a new phase at various mana levels was causing bad timings.
Items and Rewards
  • Broker Ko'tul in the Great Vault room will now exchange excess Anima for caches of tradeskill goods, including Korthite Crystals.
    • Developers' note: As players have traversed the more Anima-rich lands of Korthia, some players are finding that they no longer have new unlocks to spend it on. We do not intend to add significant new one-time Anima sinks in Chains of Domination, and want to provide an outlet for players who are content with their choice of Covenant but have purchased everything that is offered.
  • The re-purchase price of the Covenant armor set granted as quest rewards from the Shadowland campaign have been increased to reflect the greater abundance of Anima.
Quests
  • Players will now receive credit for "To the Vault" if they ride the flayedwing from Keeper's Respite to the Vault of Secrets.

July 26

Classes
  • Mage
    • Fire
      • [With weekly maintenance in each region] Ring of Fire (PvP Talent) will reapply its damage over time effect less frequently while standing within the ring.
        • Developers' note: In situations where players were stunned or rooted inside the ring, the damage dealt by Ring of Fire was higher than intended. There will now be a cooldown before the fire reapplies its damage over time.
  • Priest
    • Shadow
      • [With weekly maintenance in each region] Void Volley (PvP Talent) damage reduced by ~15%.
  • Warrior
    • [With weekly maintenance in each region] [Intervene]'s duration reduced to 3 seconds while engaged in combat with enemy players (was 6 seconds).
      • Developers' note: Warriors group defensive toolkit is currently outshining other specs, by reducing Intervene's duration, we hope to open more windows of opportunities for enemy teams to capitalize on.
Dungeons and Raids
  • The Necrotic Wake
    • Forgotten Forgehammer, Bloody Javelin, and Discharged Anima deal 50% more damage but no longer scale with player damage modifier effects and can no longer critically strike.
      • Developers' note: We recently discovered a bug that was causing some dungeon spells to inflict incorrect damage, and fixing this bug had a very noticeable impact on the pickups found in The Necrotic Wake. Upon closer review of these items, we've decided to make their impact more consistent while increasing their baseline power to compensate.
    • Anima Exhaust damage and healing increased by 50%.
Items and Rewards
  • [With weekly maintenance in each region] Unchained Gladiator's Shackles of Malediction's channeled Shadow damage is now Magic dispellable (was Curse).
    • Developers' notes: We've made this change to open up more counterplay options for all of our healer specs by changing the dispel type to Magic.
Burning Crusade Classic
  • Player versus Player
    • [With weekly maintenance in each region] The formula for Arena Points has been adjusted to increase Arena Points awarded each week. This will equate to approximately 100 additional points per week for most 5v5 teams, about 88 additional points for most 3v3 teams, and about 76 more points for 2v2 teams. Teams near 1500 rating will get more, and the curve still tapers to the same maximum as before.
      • Developers' notes: In original Burning Crusade in 2007, players could expect to receive 450-500 Arena Points per week by playing at least 10 matches and winning more than 50% of the time. At that time, a team who lost most of their games could expect to get about 300 points per week. Starting from a team rating of 0 has created a points-per-win curve that has been significantly below that, so we're raising the point floor to compensate for the additional time needed to raise your rating. With this change, all 5v5 teams over 100 rating should get at least 300 points per week.

July 23

Classes
  • Demon Hunter
    • Fixed an issue with Hidden Helm and Hidden Cloak transmog options for Demon Hunters not using the correct appearances.

Classes
Items and Rewards
  • Shards of Domination
    • Blood Link's target application has been made more reliable.
  • Using the  [Silver Shardhide Whistle] toy while in a Druid form will now cancel the form and activate the toy instead of failing and putting the toy on cooldown.

    • Priest
      • Fixed an issue where Bwonsamdi's Pact (Runecarving Power) was not benefitting from [Dreamspun Mushrooms] (Anima Power).
  • Torments
    • Avenger will no longer spam sound effects on every kill.

July 21

Classes
  • Druid
    •  [Born Anew]'s (Conduit) primary stat bonus reduces to 20 upon the beginning of a new encounter.
      • Developers' note: The intent of this bonus is to provide a benefit when using resurrections in combat. But it is best to avoid situations where players might feel compelled to min/max something like this before starting a pull.
  • Priest
    • Shadow
      • [Shadow Crash]'s (Talent) ground visual will now match the area effect.
      • Void Volley's (PvP Talent) ground visuals will now match the area effect and has more defined edges.
  • Warrior

Creatures and NPCs
  • Players now have a 2 second grace period to keep their vision of targets within the area contained by the Soul Chains between the Soul Cages during the Mor'geth encounter.
  • Reduced the number of Prince Renathals in Sinfall. Press F to pay respects.

  • Plaguefall
    • You must now defeat the first three bosses of the dungeon before the door to Margrave Stradama opens on all difficulties.
      • Developers' note: The first two bosses of the dungeon were frequently being skipped in lower-difficulty dungeons, typically by groups who were trying to earn Renown much faster than intended. To improve players' Renown earnings, we've also added a chance for Renown to be earned by completing layers in Torghast (see hotfix below).
Items and Rewards
  • Teleporter Repair Kits should no longer have a Unique count and will now stack to 50.
  • Repaired Riftkeys will also now stack to 50.
    • Developers' note: Early in development, Teleporter Repair Kits and Repaired Riftkeys were only available from the vendor. Based on player feedback of not knowing if they were worth purchasing, we decided to have them drop occasionally as well. Now that these items dropped and became out of player's control, we should have removed the unique cap on the Teleporter Repair Kits then. Also, since you have access to purchasing the Teleporter Repair Kits or Repaired Rift Keys, we are disabling them from going to mail if you loot one with a full inventory so they will no longer fill up your mailbox.
  • The item levels of Conduits sold by the Rated PvP vendor have been corrected.
  • Fixed an issue where the  [Salvaged Fusion Amplifier] was not dropping for Marksmanship and Beastmaster Hunters.
Quests
  • Fixed an issue during "N [60] Nal'ragas" that caused internal text to be visible to users of certain nameplate addons.
Torghast, Tower of the Damned
  • Renown is now a possible reward from Torghast completions, with better chances at Renown coming from higher Torghast difficulties.

July 20

Classes
  • Mage
    • Arcane
      • Fixed an issue with the Clearcasting effect gained from Mirrors of Torment (Venthyr Ability) not granting the effects of Amplification while Arcane Empowerment is talented in PvP.
  • Priest
    • When Mass Dispel dispels multiple targets, the order of dispels is now random.
Dungeons and Raids

    • Remnant of Ner'zhul
      • The pendulum around the Penance of the Fallen King swings once again.
  • Mythic+
    • Fixed an issue that could cause small discrepancies in how Mythic+ Rating is displayed in different User Interface elements.
Items and Rewards
  • Shards of Domination
    • Scouring Touch no longer incorrectly removes stealth type effects from the caster when applied to targets.
  • The amount of Anima dropped by bosses in the Sanctum of Domination is now affected by achievements earned by upgrading your Covenant Sanctum.
  • The Treatise: The Study of Anima and Harnessing Every Drop should now work on Korthia dailies, rares, and treasures as well as the Covenant Maw Assault quests.
    • Developers' note: The original goal was for the Treatise items to give you bonuses when returning to the 4 non-Maw zones or to the Maw proper for the Stygia Treatise. Korthia was themed to be part of the Maw during development and so it was not included. However, since we didn't clarify that well and Korthia is abundant in Anima having not originated in the Maw, we are enabling this item's bonus there as well. Looking forward, the Treatise: Relics Abound in the Shadowlands awarded at Tier 6 with The Archivists' Codex only works on the four original zone factions as a bonus to players who want a way to speed up their reputation with these factions.
  • The new socket adding item, Alloy-Warping Facetor and conduit upgrade item, Death-Bound Shard should now be purchasable by all characters on your account from Archivist Roh-Suir once one character has reached Tier 6 Research.
  • Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper is now classified as a Unique item.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing the Foresworn Aspirant's Robes to not show up in the Kyrian Soulbind dailies or in the Transmog appearances user interface.
Quests
  • Resolved a number of issues with the quest "The Nathrezim" in which Mal'Ganis was telling enemies in other player's experiences what to do. He has been notified to stay in his lane.
  • Added a graveyard that is specific for the quest "The Nathrezim."
    • Developers' note: This should eliminate the long run back to the quest if it is in progress and reduce some of the timing bugs that were coming up with Mal'Ganis' gloating moments.
The Maw
  • Fixed an issue where players who accepted a queue in the middle of flying to the Beastwarrens would be pacified until relogging.

'Torghast, Tower of the Damned

  • Completing the Adamant Vaults will now always reward Anima and significantly more gold.
  • Bosses in the Adamant Vaults no longer regenerate health after defeating players.

Dungeons and Raids

      • Orbs of Torment should no longer be able to sneak in a melee attack.
    • Painsmith Raznal
      • [With regional restarts] Floor spikes created by Instruments of Pain now inflict their damage more closely aligned with the visual effect of the spikes on all difficulties.
    • Guardian of the First Ones
      • [With regional restarts] The Physical damage portion of Obliterate is now correctly increased by Obliterate's vulnerability effect, and Obliterate's vulnerability effect has been increased to 5000% on Heroic and Mythic difficulties.
        • Developers' note: On Heroic and Mythic difficulties, the Guardian's Sunder and Obliterate combo is meant to be shared between two tanks. Prior to this change, stringing together multiple immunity effects could allow a single tank to survive the entire encounter; this should no longer be possible. Our goal is to avoid a scenario where the optimal strategy for the encounter involves having only a single tank, unlike all other encounters in Sanctum of Domination.
    • Kel'Thuzad
      • [With regional restarts] Soul Shards will no longer despawn if the target of Soul Fracture is defeated prematurely.
    • Sylvanas Windrunner
      • Fixed an issue that could cause Sylvanas to cast a non-intermission Domination Chains prior to casting the intermission Domination Chains if pushed over the health threshold very close to the cooldown of Domination Chains.
      • Fixed an issue that allowed Thrall to affect Dark Sentinels with a knockback.

    • Night Fae
      • Fixed an issue where Korayn's [Hold the Line] was taking longer than 5 seconds to trigger.
      • Fixed an issue where Niya's Swift Patrol would disrupt the timing of auto-attacks.
Dungeons and Raids
  • Tazavesh, the Veiled Market
    • Mailroom Mayhem
      • Unstable Goods that are on the ground are no longer automatically picked up when players approach, and instead must be clicked on to pick them up. Unstable Goods that are thrown can still be caught by other players if they're not already carrying Unstable Goods.
        • Developers' note: Since Tazavesh opened last week, many players have struggled to consistently pick up Unstable Goods. This issue has proven particularly elusive to track down, but we believe we've isolated the cause and are trying out a fairly substantial change to address it.
Items and Rewards
  • Shards of Domination
    •  [Shard of Zed] now only triggers in combat.
    • Shard of Zed now only triggers from class abilities.
      • Developers' note: This will prevent it from triggering when using many items which are generally inconvenient for it, like Invisibility Potions.
    • Shard of Zed now more smartly filters what targets it attempts to drain life from.

        • Corrected the spawn locations of Soggodon the Breaker and Executioner Varruth in Halls of Atonement.
Items and Rewards
  • Added a new reward to Archivist Roh-Suir's vendor list that will reduce players' [Stygia] loss in The Maw by 75%.
    • Developers' notes: As the denizens of Azeroth have progressed through The Maw, they've gained powers to thwart most of the Jailer's punishing effects, with the notable exception of losing Stygia upon death. We're making it so that players can now reduce the potential Stygia loss with a new item called Treatise: Bonds of Stygia in Mortals, which will be available at Tier 4 with The Archivists' Codex.
  • Winds of Winter (Shards of Domination Rune Word) will more accurately record all critical hit values.
  •  [So'leah's Secret Technique] can no longer be used on players outside of the party or raid.

Creatures and NPCs
  • Reduced the health of Mor'geth and his Soul Cages by 38%. Additionally, Soul Cages can no longer be Death Gripped.
Dungeons and Raids
  • Sanctum of Domination
    • Eye of the Jailer
      • On Mythic difficulty, using immunities such as Divine Shield could put players in a bad state where they had cleared their Scorn or Ire debuff but may not be able to control what debuff would be reapplied once the immunity wore off. Now using immunities will temporarily immune the damage but will not clear Scorn or Ire debuffs.
    • Soulrender Dormazain
      • Unleashed Tyranny damage reduced by 17% on Mythic difficulty.
      • Echoing Screams now ticks every 2 seconds (was 5 seconds) on all difficulties, with damage proportionally reduced on Normal, Heroic, and Raid Finder difficulties to keep total damage over time unchanged.
      • Echoing Screams damage reduced by an additional 10% on Mythic difficulty.
        • Developers' notes: The bursts of damage from Unleashed Tyranny on Mythic difficulty could combine with Echoing Screams ticks to cause unreasonable damage spikes relative to the healing burden of the fight otherwise. These changes are aimed to smooth out those spikes.
    • Painsmith Raznal
      • Blackened Armor duration has been reduced.
      • Shadowsteel Ember damage reduced by 25% on Normal difficulty.
      • Slightly increased the time it takes for Shadowsteel Embers to reach their impact location on Normal and Heroic difficulties.

      • Sylvanas Windrunner now transitions out of Stage 1 at 84% on Normal and Heroic difficulties.
        • Developers' notes: We felt that players were losing too much uptime due to mechanics, and getting out of the first phase much later than originally anticipated, so this is meant to curtail the length of the encounter without affecting difficulty too much.
      • Veil of Darkness radius has been reduced in the third stage of the encounter.
      • Banshee Wail and Banshee Scream radius reduced.
        • Developers' notes: Our goal here was to help ease the space constraints imposed by larger raid sizes, without substantially reducing the difficulty of the encounter.
      • Defeated players will now be correctly moved to the first platform at the start of Stage 3.
      • Dispelling Banshee's Bane with single-charge dispels now removes all stacks.
      • Mawforged Souljudge's Lashing Strike initial cooldown increased.
      • Sylvanas Windrunner is now immune to Curse of Tongues.

  • Mythic+
    • Tormented Affix
      • Oro Coldheart's Biting Cold damage reduced by 25%.
