Patch 10.0.5 Hotfixes - January 26

Classes
  • Druid
    • Protector of the Pack healing bonus to Regrowth and damage bonus to Moonfire has been increased by 60%.
      • Developers’ note: Previously this talent was gaining extra benefit from various modifiers on the Druid class. With the patch, we changed it to grant the exact bonus listed in the tooltip for clarity and to reduce the swings in value. However, this left the talent feeling a lot weaker, so we’re increasing its spell power substantially to compensate.
    • Guardian
      • Fixed an issue causing Raze to consume extra Tooth and Claw stacks.
  • Warlock
    • Affliction
      • Fixed an issue to where the 4pc set bonus, Cruel Epiphany, was being removed when casting Seed of Corruption, causing it to not benefit.
    • Demonology
      • Fixed an issue where Grimoire: Felguard affected the cooldown of Guillotine, Demonic Strength, and Felstorm.
      • Guillotine, Demonic Strength, and Felstorm now put each ability on cooldown for the appropriate amount of time.

Dungeons and Raids
  • Vault of the Incarnates
    • Sennarth, the Cold Breath
      • Sennarth no longer casts Chilling Blast immediately before entering Phase 2.

Enemies and NPCs
  • Fixed an issue that caused the rare enemy, Bloodbeak the Ravenous, in Nokhudon Hold to have its health scale with attackers.
  • Experience granted by enemies associated with the Cobalt Assembly has been greatly reduced.
    • Developers’ notes: From the start, the Cobalt Assembly was intended to be a max-level feature, and Sundered Flame enemies should not have granted significant amounts of XP. Having a max-level player kill enemies while in a party with lower-level players who stand around and do nothing but receive XP and reputation is not the sort of gameplay we wish to encourage. We’ve adjusted the XP rate, rather than removed it completely, to encourage players to level in more fun, interactive ways, while still leaving this as an option that is no longer the best option.

Items and Rewards
  • The Falling Star Flinger and Falling Star Catcher can now only be used outdoors.
  • Thanks to the assistance of a couple Bronze dragons, the Legion timewalking vendor items now reflect the correct item levels.
  • Removed the holiday requirement for many holiday transmog rewards.
  • Fixed an issue where using Windscar Whetstone caused other on-use trinkets to remain unusable for several additional seconds past the displayed cooldown.

Player versus Player
  • Warmode
    • Fixed an issue that prevented characters from earning “the Horde Slayer” and “the Alliance Slayer” titles.

Professions
  • Fixed an issue where crafting EZ-Thro Gravitational Displacer would craft ordinary Gravitational Displacers at certain qualities.

Quests
  • The Azure Span
    • In addition to completing tasks for Big Kinook, players can also earn credit for the quests “Community Feast” and “Aiding the Accord: A Feast For All” by throwing any discovered meat into the pot, or by yelling “Yes Chef!” when given a new task.
  • Storm’s Fury
    • Fixed an issue that can cause players to continue to gain stacks of Warmth when at the Temporal Conflux area after the event is over.
    • Fixed an issue with portal capture so that captures occur faster based on number of nearby players.
    • Fixed an issue that caused the lighting to rapidly change when entering or exiting a heat source.
    • “Resisting the Storm” can now be completed when in a raid group.
    • The HP of all Bosses in the Storm’s Fury event has been significantly reduced.
    • The HP of the Winter’s Aegis enemies during the Glakis, Winter’s Wrath boss encounter has been significantly reduced.

    Yeah, but does anyone know which ones? Because every single one I've checked so far still require the holiday to be active to see it.

    I noticed yesterday that the Bronze-Tinted Sunglasses, normally only available to transmog during WoW's anniversary, were now allowed.

    Yeah, I just checked and it appears the word 'many' is doing a LOT of heavy lifting in that note.

    Some of the flower crowns were all year round, they should have a label like, eternal or something?

    They were a reward from some extra effort nonsense that I forget about, besides that druids could do it quickly

    The game has been out 2 months now. The cobalt farm took under 2 hours to level while AFK. Leveling in the real world and actually playing the game it takes like 3-4 hours tops.

    If you haven't been bothered to afk the toon in the cobalt farm for 2 hours in the last 60 days, that's on you.

    It was obvious this was getting nerfed the only shocking thing to me is that this wasn't nerfed in December when people realized it was a thing.
    Yeah, I think this game would improve when the people like the ones you're talking about just left and went on to another game/activity. They clearly do not enjoy the game, yet stay and complain about it left and right, it's exhausting. when I am no longer having fun or bored, I switch games for a bit. I don't just sit in the same game over and over not having any fun and then come to a forum to cry about it. good lord, but you know how it is....misery LOVES company.

    If you are exhausted because people have a different opinion to you on something entirely subjective, that's absolutely, 100% on you. I welcome the different opinions on a discussion forum like this - what you are asking for is an echo chamber - that doesn't interest me at all.

    I also fail to see the connection between the people who are frustrated by the game and the game being "better" if they left. Can you explain how this works?

    It's one thing to complain about the way the game plays.

    It's another thing entirely to complain that the devs removed a way for people to play the game while alt-tabbed doing something else entirely.

    This stuff is almost always fixed and the question should have never been "if" Blizzard would fix it, but rather when. And the when, in this case, is now. If you're legitimately upset you can no longer "play" WoW while alt-tabbed watching Netflix, maybe... maybe, just maybe WoW isn't for you.

    Leveling is awful and always will be. There are way better single player games to play. The only reason to play wow over them is the group content.

    Affected holiday items that I've found so far:

    • All Lovely Dresses and Dinner Suits from Love is in the Air
    • Spring Robes, Elegant Dress, and Black Tuxedo Pants from Noblegarden
    • Bronze-Tinted Sunglasses from WoW's Anniversary

    The Whimsical Skull Mask (uncommon-quality version) from Day of the Dead may also be affected, but I don't have the item collected to confirm for myself.

    All in all, not as "many" are affected as the hotfix note would lead you to believe. From what I can tell, none of the appearances from Midsummer Fire Festival (exempting the Crown), Brewfest, Hallow's End, Pilgrim's Bounty, and Winter Veil have had the world event restriction lifted.

    If you're referring to the White Tuxedo Shirt, that one never required Noblegarden to be active. (And, sadly, it's been bugged since Patch 9.0.2's release.)

    I have seen multiple posts about alliance slayer and how bugged it is for many. Just to get a reaponse back (with no fix) only for them to call you out as I did it myself on purpose almost. Many people are frustrated with the lack of actual help. They just dont care.

    Still no title.. I am just leaving my ticket open, got a secone and third response without closing it. Just gonna see what happends if I keep it open lol. The gms are powerless thats the problem.
