Covenants

  • Kyrian
    • Fixed an issue during the Kyrian campaign quest "Aerial Advantage" where the Battlesewn Rocs could display a parachute visual.
  • Venthyr
    • While on the Campaign Chapter: Confronting Sin, Blackbale Overseers will now also drop the item that starts the quest "Maldraxxian Weapons."
    • The required animals to rescue for “Ember Court: Glimpse of the Wilds” has been lowered to 10 (was 15).
    • Niya now moves slightly faster and she can access her speed boost and leap ability more often during “Ember Court: Glimpse of the Wilds.”
      • Developers’ note: We’ve felt that the Glimpse of the Wilds event was taking a little too long to complete. To give you some breathing room for tackling other surprises at your Ember Court, we wanted to speed it up to be more in line with other events. We have more changes coming in the future to improve the clarity of Ember Court objectives and bonuses like Tubbins's Lucky Teapot, so in the meantime, we wanted to make these smaller changes to improve the experience. When in doubt, take a peek at your map!
    • The size of the tools near Tulipnose have been increased to make them easier to locate for “Party Pests.”
    • Your Dredger Butler will now join the Ember Court and awaits your orders near the starting location. He's eager to learn more about etiquette from friendly guests!

Dungeons and Raids

  • Plaguefall
    • Margrave Stradama
      • Fixed an issue where the door to her location could remain closed and lock players out after a wipe.

Items and Rewards

  • Fixed an issue where players could not use the Eternal Gateway in Purity's Pinnacle after looting the Penitence of Purity treasure.
  • Construct Disguise now only allows players to be recognized as a construct within the House of Constructs in Maldraxxus, as originally stated by the item. The disguises’ visual appearance is still usable outside the area, but it will no longer fool enemies outside the House of Constructs.
  • The Philosopher bow now sheathes correctly.
  • Soul Igniter and Empyreal Ordnance trinkets no longer break crowd controlled enemies or enemies that are out of combat.

Professions

  • Players should once again be able to use Skaggldrynk while on the Alchemy quest "The Price of the Black Market."

Quests

  • Bastion
    • Fixed an issue where enemies in the Temple of Humility would respawn at inconsistent rates for various quests.

Torghast, Tower of the Damned

  • Enemies should be less likely to link together in overly large groups when tower forces and prisoners are engaged in combat.
  • Anima Powers
    • Decayfly Hatchlings summoned by Pulsing Rot-hive should be less aggressive in seeking out new targets.
    • Monk
      • Whirling Stormgem has been removed.

World Quests

  • The clouds are now more reliable during the Bastion world quest "Flight School: Up and Away!"

    Wow nice torgast fixes, now can you fix the rogue anima power "Unceasing chain link" thats been broken since launch? It still falls off randomly. Sometimes I have 2 stacks of it, pick up a third one and i go down to 1 stack, or it falls off when I change levels. I've seen it fall off so many times that I don't even pick it up anymore, even though it's AMAZING, id rather take the 75 phantasma or mawrat explosion since atleast I know those don't fall off randomly.

    Where’s the pvp nerfs?
    Do they actually think pvp is fine currently?

    All I hope for is they have the whole issue with getting kicked from the ember court, before it is done, cleared before next week.

    Night Fae Hunters rejoice. It's not perfect but it's something.

    Waiting the hot fix that says:
    - You thought you were getting no loot and we were wrong, but we are never wrong, so we are reducing the loot drops from all sources by 50%.

    Glad they nerfed the animal rounding thing in the Ember Court, that shit was horrible and took FAR too long compared to the atoning rituals.

    tbh i don`t get why you have problem
    Taking in consideration what other game developers do and BfA as a whole i would say they improved a lot in SL (at least at this point, will see if they will keep the good direction) and some minor bugs are rather hard to avoid if you want to have steady peace of releasing content.

    imho they should go a bit faster with PvP and overall dps balancing (more small tweaks every week instead of bigger tweaks every month or so), but that may be only my feelings
    (still light years ahead than bfa where shaman was been pvp unplayable for almost whole expansion, outside GW self heal kiting gimmick in first season)

    Yeah. Until Legion it was much better. We need more changes. This is not balanced and even worse than BFA atm.

    This explains why tanks rarely stayed inside....ffs

    Ah at least they realized that the temple of humility quest was complete ass. Tried to do that yesterday and it took me 20 minutes fill that damn bar, even with group, beause 5 man groups incur the same tag penalty as faction tags and the respawn was so awful, 30 people were camping the handfull of enemies that spawn there..

    Welcome to the pain of being a resto druid. They've redone the appearance of efflorescence so many times I have to keep telling my tanks that the green circle is my good thing and to not immediately run out of it... every... time... I recast the damn thing.

    Hey, while we're making Ember Court changes, how about making the RSVP Droman Aliothe quest something you don't have to do every single time they come up as a guest? It's ridiculous that they expect you to do it more than once - it takes way too long and requires you to go all over the place for no good reason.

    Still no fixes to how imbalanced Legion and BFA scaling is.

    3rd round of hot fixes this week and no balancing changes... at all...
