Fist of Justice Hotfix Coming Soon

The bug is with the Corruption Effect Ineffable Truth and its interaction with abilities like Fist of Justice causing more than the intended amounts of cooldown reduction.

The hotfix will make it so the flat cooldown reduction provided by Fist of Justice (and similar abilities) will not be unintentionally increased by effects that increase your cooldown rate (such as Ineffable Truth).

We’ll confirm that the fix is live in our hotfixes update posts.

WoW Classic - Black Lotus and WSG Adjustments

Via hotfixes, we’re working on several quality-of-life improvements that should go live in the next few days.

Black Lotus scarcity has been consistently among the top issues we’ve seen player feedback about, so we’ve decided to update how we handle Black Lotus spawns. Since the launch of WoW Classic, the game has used the spawn times and locations from original World of Warcraft, but population and social factors have led to Black Lotus being much more scarce than it was in original WoW. While these issues affect all mining and herb nodes to some degree, Black Lotus is especially affected because it has the special property of only having one spawn up at a time in each of the zones it spawns in.

In original WoW, designers planned Black Lotus around a technical limitation – only 10 spawn locations per node type could be active at the same time in the same zone. We no longer have that limitation, but it gives us a design intention that we can work with: Black Lotus was supposed to spawn in the widest variety of locations, while there could only be one up at a time in each zone. As always, our goal is to minimize differences from original World of Warcraft, and we feel this is a case where we can follow that design intention in a way that is warranted by modern conditions as well as beneficial to players.

We’re going to increase the spawn rate of Black Lotus, and we’re going to add many additional possible spawn locations in each of the Black Lotus zones. With a different hotfix, we’re working on making it so that a player cannot see a Black Lotus on-screen or on their minimap if they’re dead, unless they have 300 Herbalism.

For Warsong Gulch, we’ve identified a number of locations in the battleground where clever players have found ways to get to a place they were never intended to go. These exploits are decidedly unfair, so we’re putting a stop to them. In most cases, the way we prevent such things is to place an invisible gate that blocks the unintended path. However, that’s sometimes impossible, so we make the out-of-bounds location fatal.

We’re also working on a hotfix that should put a stop to one small annoyance – now, if a player is actively engaged with the mailbox or bank, they will be considered “busy” if someone else tries to initiate a trade with them.

We’ll have all of these changes noted for you in the next Hotfixes Update that follows them going live.

Thank you!

    Excellent news indeed. I hope to see more small changes like this.

    Lotus was balanced around population and technical limitations. Neither of those two variables are the same as they were in vanilla, so I'm not sure this even qualifies as a "change." These are objective improvements to classic.

    Im not sure I understand the Fist of Justice "fix". Do they make it so that Ineffable Truth doesnt cause its CD to lower or something else?

    You. literally. dont. need. flasks. to. raid.

    It is completely optimal and thus people with lower mental capacity shouldn't whine about them or their price.


    OPTIMAL. Nobody wants to pay millions for a home or a car, yet here we are, homes and cars being overpriced.

    I hope you were smart enough to diversify your investments.

    Too bad they decided that there would be no balancing, so all the fun specs are still shit.

    If they hadn't changed the server sizes to begin with they wouldn't have to make this change.

    Why are servers that have equal or even higher than original vanilla server populations labeled as dead?

    Good to the change on black lotus farming, only took them forever to fix it though. $&%#@ all the #NoChangers, they can go piss and moan with private servers if they don't like it.

    This is good because clearly the classic realms have much more players on them than back in the day.

    I actually play on a server which is High pop but it's (supposedly) 67% Horde and I took this screenshot last night: https://i.imgur.com/leGxdZ3.jpg

    Could not believe how many people there.
