Dungeons and Raids
  • Ny’alotha, the Waking City
    • Ra-den the Despoiled
      • Void Eruption should no longer damage pets on all difficulties.
      • Decaying Wound’s damage over time effect no longer persists after the end of the encounter on all difficulties.

      • Reduced the health of Ra-den, Essence of Void, Essence of Nightmare, Crackling Stalker, Void Hunter, and Night Terror by 5% on Mythic difficulty.
    • Carapace of N’Zoth
      • Reduced the number of spells that stop Fury of N'Zoth's movement during the encounter.
      • Resolved an issue where Madness and Insanity Bomb could potentially remove the sanity of the primary afflicted target.

  • Sparks of Unwavering Strength should no longer erroneously create Quickening Azerite Geode for Guardian Druids and will correctly create Manual of Unbalanced Tactics.
  • Corrupted Items
    • Obsidian and Searing Breath (Corrupted Effects) no longer strike targets that are not in line of sight.

    • The Thing from Beyond can no longer daze the wearer.
    • Fixed an issue that caused Thing from Beyond to sometimes miss players. The Thing from Beyond always gets its target, in the end.

    Would love to see "You jump considerably less" under that stupid fucking affix this week and the last SW week. That shit is the most annoying thing i have ever experienced in this game, and it's like every 10 seconds.

    Simple really. They have some sort of hidden aura in M+ that prevents loot drops (you can see it when you try to use items that drop other items). It's trying to give items that would normally be given with the Guide but the aura is preventing it, so you get an error.

    Just for a pure guess.. would be that method somehow brings in more money for blizzard or something similar.

    I dont believe thats the reason for the nerf though.

    how the hell would method bring in any money for blizz? They don't have any affiliation or sponsor from blizz. That makes zero sense. people are just talking shit because they can

    The same group not always being the automatic winner would do much more for overall health of the game if you are getting into these nonsense conspiracy theories.

    Its very common for game companies to pay twitch “promoters” for publicity and advertisement. Blizzard *could* have done similar for method to stream their progression in the race.

    Theres usually some sort of stream title agreement or similar though. Probably not the case here.
