Patches and hotfixes

  • Shadowlands Patch 9.0.1 (2020-10-13): Removed, replaced with [Rupture]
  • Legion Patch 7.2.5 (2017-06-13): Nightblade now increases your damage dealt to the target by 15%, with damage over time component reduced by 35%.
    Developers' notes: Further pushes Subtlety away from maintaining Nightblade on all secondary targets and instead into focusing their damage into 1 target. Additionally, gives Nightblade a mechanical interaction with the rest of the core rotation that fulfills the "setup" feel of Subtlety.
  • Legion Hotfix (2017-01-31): Nightblade/Night Terrors now reduce the movement of targets by 50% (was 30%). The reduction remains at 30% in PvP situations.
  • Legion Patch 7.1.5 (2017-01-10): Night Terrors now reduces movement speed by 30% (was 50%).
  • Legion Hotfix (2016-09-23):
    • Nightblade damage increased by 15%.
