Dungeons and Raids
  • Ny’alotha, the Waking City
    • Carapace of N’Zoth
      • Resolved an issue where Fury of N'Zoth could gain Mycelial Infusion while transitioning into the Den of Transfusion on Mythic difficulty.

Items and Rewards
  • Corrupted Items
    • Fixed an issue with some Corruption Effects scaling improperly during Timewalking instances.
    • Fixed an issue with Faralos, Empire’s Dream causing its Corruption Effect to not reliably hit large enemies.

System
  • MacOS
    • Players who have experienced crashes or freezes on MacOS systems can now change the Particle Density visual effects setting to “Disabled”. This should improve performance on MacOS systems.

    If it gets people playing until they find a permanent fix, it's probably worth it, right now the people with this issue basically can't play at all.

    Most boss abilities are handled by projected textures. Particle density just makes spells look bigger.
