  • Fortified and Bolster will no longer increase the health of the Reaping ghosts.
  • The MOTHERLODE!!
    • Fixed an issue causing Venture Co. Earthshapers to count double towards Enemy Forces criteria on Mythic Keystone difficulties. Slightly reduced the total Enemy Forces count.

Items
  • Potions that grant the player Invisibility (such as Demitri's Draught of Deception) now place a 5-minute cooldown on all other potion types (was 10 minutes). The shared cooldown time for invisibility potions remains 10 minutes.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented Tome of Town Portal from being properly affected by Seafarer’s Hearth.

Player versus Player
  • Every portion of Azerite powers that scale with item level have been reduced by 50% in PvP.
    • Developers’ notes: With the advent of new five-ring Azerite armor in Season 2, we’re mindful of the increased potential for stacking and combining traits. Over the course of BfA we’ve also made adjustments to individual Azerite traits, but that creates uncertainty and unpredictability, where unless you’ve followed all our hotfixes you don’t know exactly how a given trait will change when you enter PvP. This aims to replace that uncertainty with a straightforward rule. This change also overwrites all previous reductions to Azerite Traits in PvP that occurred during Season 1, as they will all now have their reduction set to 50% effectiveness. Non-scaling and non-stacking effects are unaffected by this adjustment.
  • Resolved an issue that caused Sinister Gladiator's Maledict to not strike enemy players who have moved out of line of sight after the initial activation of the trinket.

Quests
  • Players on "The Lord Admiral's Lament" while on the Saurfang questline should now be able to see Isabella.
  • Quartermaster's Bounty”, in which you turn in 10 Quartermaster's Coins to get a Battleborn Sigil, is now a weekly repeatable quest.

    Traits reduced by 50% in pvp? So that traits are pointless for me now.... that means "just take any... it doesn't matter.."
    As an aff warlock stacking id 50 stacks was only thing how i could land a kill... because dots doesn't make any presure...and that 50 stack drains isn't OP... and now that trait is useless...

    There's a major bug with Opulence in that Ruby and Emerald gem somehow managed to last through wipe, which makes phase one of the next attempt totally trivial.

    Does this mean that, traits nerfed by 80% in PvP like the Shaman Ghost Wolf Heal, are now nerfed by 50% only?

    it sounds that way, enjoy taking advantage of the imbalances while they last.

    It might have been fun for traits to stack..........blizzard dont want that - azerite gear has been made even more pointless in pvp, as if it wasnt hard enough to get the right items in the first place.

    Playing some pvp today it looks as though it is an additional nerf - the tool tip updates inside instance pvp giving you the updated value of the spell. Unfortunately it look as though this is an additional nerf, havent checked out ghost wolf yet, but it is an additional nerf for Earth shock stacking.

    This reads as an open admission that azerite traits were a terrible idea for pvp. Bring back wrath-style glyphs!

    No can do. That would trigger the Fun Alarm. ._. I don't understand how Blizzard thought these azerite traits were a good idea to begin with.

    You’re the reason why this game is garbage
