Patch 8.1 Hotfixes - December 11, 2018

Some of the hotfixes below take effect the moment they were implemented, while others may require scheduled realm restarts to go into effect. Please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch update. This list will be updated as additional hotfixes are applied.

Classes

Dungeons and Raids
  • Uldir
    • Zul, Reborn
      • Zul's health has been reduced by 5% on Mythic difficulty.
      • Developers’ note: Tides of Vengeance removed the Subtlety Rogue passive Shuriken Combo, which was a core part of many guilds’ strategy on this fight. We’re reducing Zul’s health to avoid the update increasing the difficulty of the fight for guilds that were relying on Shuriken Combo.

Items

Professions
  • Fixed a bug that allowed some Battle For Azeroth crafted gear to be worn by player characters who no longer had the crafting skill to create it.
  • Cooking
    • Battle for Azeroth flasks and feasts now increase the primary stat for tanks (was Stamina).
    • Cooks can now learn and serve new Stamina foods.

Player versus Player

Quests
  • Fixed a bug where enemies required for “Black Moon Rising” weren’t providing quest credit when killed.

    The tank for my guild is very happy about the feast change. He had to swap to Frost before every pull in order to get the right buff for Blood.

    Well there goes my pack spirit set made because of the healing surge nerf. Thanks again Blizzard, shamans really deserve this shite.

    Haha... so clueless letting the new traits go live and then instantly nerfing them 50%.

    It's like they aren't even trying anymore...

    I think all tanks will be happy with that change. I like that they added individual stamina food too so that if any situation a tank really does want the extra health they still have the option.

    Thank you for the bug free experience this has been.

    If you can't tell, this is a joke. It's a joke much like the 2018 Blizzard development team. What a fucking cringefest this year has been, and may 2019 become the year where blizzard fires a bunch of incompetent soccerdads, and hires the good old neckbeards to do video games again.

    Can't even comprehend giving out achievements properly, let alone resetting AK. (but yo pls give $15 a month)

    How can a blanket 50% nerf even be logical? Nerfing that many traits by the exact same amount this quickly can be interpreted as nothing other than a knee-jerk reaction designed to destroy those traits efficacy.

    There is no way that it just so happened that an exact 50% nerf to 23 abilities has now created "balance" in their spreadsheets. They might as well have just said, "We forgot about PvP. Please don't use these traits in PvP."

    Good grief.

    If they had balanced the traits for PvP before launch that would have been the first time they didn't forget about PvP.

    I've played wow since day 1 and the bugs now are no different than they used to be. Anyone that says otherwise is either in denial or has memory problems. Second, wow remains a much better experience than most games in terms of bugs on patch days and in live. Go play Fallout76 for perspective on what real bugs look like.

    And for the record, I'm not a fanboi. I'm unsubbed and don't enjoy the game in it's current incarnation. But it's worth setting the record straight for people like you that obviously don't have much experience with games outside of wow.

    Cheers.

    The game enters “I’m having a stroke!” mode now when talking to some NPCs.

    Maybe the devs are ill?

    i wonder if people already noticed they went back to random drops from daily cache instead set one

    because more rng is exackly what this game needs.

    Yay, no more instant wipes because the tank was in the wrong spec.
