We have been reading your thoughts on the Corruption changes and have decided to hold them for regional restarts next week. We understand the impact they will make on your gear selection and agree that it makes more sense to do it at the start of a week.

Also during regional restarts, we plan to make some tuning changes to Mythic N’Zoth to better align the encounter with the changes that are being made to players’ Corrupted items.

Thank you all for your feedback on this.

Update – 11:30 a.m. PST February 5

Soon today, we’re going to make the following adjustments in a single hotfix:

  • Echoing Void damage has been reduced by 50%.
    • Echoing Void no longer deals reduced damage in PvP combat.
  • Deadly Momentum’s buff duration has been increased to 30 seconds (was 15 seconds).
  • Void Ritual’s stat bonus per stack has been approximately doubled at each rank.
  • Surging Vitality’s Versatility value has been increased by 10%.
  • Avoidant now subjects you to 20% less Corruption at each rank.

  • Reduce the effectiveness of Echoing Void significantly.
  • Increase the effectiveness of Void Ritual by a small amount.
  • Increase the duration of Deadly Momentum, so that its buff doesn’t fall off.

At this time, we’re also considering:

  • Reducing the damage done by Twilight Devastation.
  • Increasing the effectiveness of other Corruption Effects.

Again, we intend to complete these changes in the next 24 hours, and we’ll let you know as soon as we’re set on final tuning numbers.

Thank you!

    From what I seen when I tried to restore a cleansed item it was a hard no. Once it is done it is done they said.

    edit:
    Actually, thinking about it more, they DID increase it by a small amount by doubling it, because the Void Ritual buff WAS a small amount to begin with!

    So the biggest thing this accomplished is that there is one less useful corruption, increasing the "if you dont RNG a good one you lose" aspect.

    And gushing blood is basically BIS for almost every class.

    IKR. just smh here how IS hasn't been nerfed again. I suppose they are gonna buff more; but it's still a bit annoying. Lesson atm is: don't cleanse anything yet.

    Just another example of what a shitshow this game has become and if you are still playing, you have at least 10 months of this crap to look forward too. Azerite system was crap. Titanforging was garbage and no the corruptions are worse.

    Imagine if they had a place to TEST this, maybe some kind of REALM, that was open to the PUBLIC.

    50% reduced dmg with same corruption cost = fail
    50% reduced dmg with 50% reduced corruption cost = win

    Seems pretty toxic to do this 2 days after the reset instead of at reset.

    Well, unlike the pearl gear disaster last patch, they actually try to fix this shit this time around. I just can't agree with they super slow reaction to doing it, this should have been done on the 3rd day of the patch, not the 3rd week.

    That's what you get for taking the cleansing bait. You're not meant to cleanse anything, it's just a currency dump. Blizzard wants you to hoard items. Better start cleaning out your bank.

    Only people who think infinite stars is OP have never actually used it. It ranges from absolute shit to disappointing on 95% of the content in this game. Pure sim candy thats good on like 3 bosses in the raid, all of which just so happen to be the easiest and most irrelevant.

    You get 10%, you get 20%, 50% more here double duration there. This is Blizzard balancing in 2020, the one thing that no one could take away from them. Long gone are the days of 2.13% tweaks, now it's just 10% increments and whatever sticks. At least they are doing something I guess.

    I really don't know wtf happened over there. It's little things like this that reveal a whole lot.

    Feel free to link me any good logs where infinite stars is topping people's damage done on bosses the same way echoing void and twilight devastation is. I'll wait.
