Here you’ll find a list of hotfixes that address various issues related to World of Warcraft: Dragonflight, Wrath of the Lich King Classic, Burning Crusade Classic and WoW Classic. Some of the hotfixes below take effect the moment they were implemented, while others may require scheduled realm restarts to go into effect. Please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch update. This list will be updated as additional hotfixes are applied.

Hotfixes

November 16, 2023
Classes

Monk

Mistweaver

Fixed an issue that caused Essence Font to fire one more bolt than intended per second channeled.
Developers’ notes: We’re aware of an issue that will cause Essence Font’s tooltip to display an incorrect channel rate after this fix. This will be addressed in a future update.

Rogue

Assassination

Fixed an issue that allowed Sanguine Blades damage from vulnerability damage increases on enemies to be unintentionally doubled.
Fixed an issue that allowed Poisoned Edges (Aberrus 2-piece set bonus) damage from vulnerability damage increases on enemies to be unintentionally doubled.

Dungeons and Raids

Amirdrassil, the Dream’s Hope

Fyrakk

Developers’ notes: Both player feedback and data have indicated that Heroic Fyrakk doesn’t pose as much of a challenge as we’d intended. We’d like Fyrakk to be a satisfying ending to Amirdrassil, the Dream’s Hope for the vast majority of players who have yet to encounter him, so we’re making a few adjustments to the overall difficulty of the encounter.
Burning Scales damage increased by 40%.
There is now an additional occurrence of Blaze during Stage Three.
Blaze damage increased by 40%.
Damage of colliding with a Swirling Firestorm increased by 60%.

Dawn of the Infinite

Resolved an issue that could cause Chromie to get stuck channeling on Blight of Galakrond during a Mythic Keystone run.
Resolved an issue which could prevent Manifested Timeways from spawning.

Items

Fixed an issue that prevented Gift of Ursine Vengeance from stacking Rising Rage properly.
Fixed an issue preventing Hearthstone of the Flame from being tradeable to other eligible party members.
Rings and neck pieces from Throne of the Tides should now drop correctly for all classes.

User Interface

Restricted addon functions that allowed for in-combat distance checking between players.
Developers’ notes: This change was intended to be implemented with the launch of the Guardians of the Dream patch, to avoid requiring that addon authors update their addons separately after the content is already being played. We apologize for the confusion and inconvenience.

November 15, 2023
Classes

Evoker

Augmentation

Ebon Might now properly benefits from the 4-piece class set bonus from Aberrus as well as Close as Clutchmates.

Hunter

Hunter pet attacks now scale with weapon attack power.
Kill Command, Bite, Claw, Smack, Flanking Strike, Froststorm Breath, and Burrow Attack damage reduced by 32.5%.

Developers’ notes: In a recent hotfix aimed at correcting an issue with Augmentation Evokers and their damage logging, we adjusted how Hunter pet damage is calculated. A side effect of this was that Hunter pet attacks started scaling with weapon attack power, increasing the damage of a Hunter pet’s special attacks by about 32.5% at 450 item level. This is actually something we would like to retain, as it means that Hunter pet damage will now benefit from weapon upgrades.

Mend Pet and Revive Pet are now separate pet utility buttons and are no longer automatically swapped back and forth based on your pet’s state. This is a temporary change to resolve some issues with interactions between Call of the Wild, Mend Pet, and Revive Pet. Mend Pet can be found in the “Pet Utility” flyout menu in the main Hunter spellbook.

Rogue

Outlaw

Fixed an errant interaction that caused Soulrip to apply without the rogue dealing combat damage.

Warlock

Fixed an issue where damage from Dimensional Rift would not break Fear effects.
Demonology

Resolved an issue causing Malefic Impact to not grant the proper amount of critical strike chance to Hand of Gul’dan.

Volcoross

Fixed an issue that caused Shadowstrike to teleport Subtlety Rogues into the lava.

Antorus the Burning Throne

Resolved an issue causing Foul Steps to remain on players after defeating the Eonar the Life-Binder encounter.

Dawn of the Infinite

Fixed an issue that caused Coalesced Time and Timestream Leech to be Arcane damage, instead of the intended Physical damage.

The Everbloom

Reduced the effectiveness of Enraged Growth on players.

Throne of the Tides

Fixed an issue that allowed players to line of sight Commander Ulthok’s Festering Shockwave.

Items

Cataclysmic Signet Brand’s self-damage effect can no longer be dispelled.
The Porcelain Crab trinket from Throne of the Tides should no longer drop for non-melee classes.

Player versus Player

The Battleground Blitz brawl no longer grants progress toward the PvP quest “Proving in Battle”, which is intended to reward participation in random battlegrounds.
Shaman who reached Combatant I during Dragonflight Season 3 should now be granted the Elite cloak appearance.
Priest

Discipline

Fixed an issue that caused the Guardians of the Dream 2-piece tier set to not extend Atonements while using the Trinity PvP talent.

Superbloom

The Emerald Bounty location for Whisperbloom planting should now be available at all times, and not just during the Superbloom.

WoW Classic Era

[With realm restarts] Fixed an issue that prevented respeccing from refunding all of the character’s talent points as expected.

Cat Form energy regeneration increased by 50% (was 35%).

Evoker

Augmentation
Developers’ notes: The amount of utility that Augmentation Evoker brings on top of its high damage has proven to be too powerful despite recent changes. Therefore we are further reducing their damage contributions to the group in order to balance them against other specializations.

Ebon Might grants 6.5% of the Evoker’s primary stat (was 8%).
Close as Clutchmates increases the effectiveness of Ebon Might and Breath of Eons by 10% (was 20%).

Paladin

Retribution

All ability damage increased by 3%.

Priest

Discipline
Developers’ notes: Discipline healing throughput (particularly in raids) is slightly higher than we would like, given their damage and utility contributions to the group. To balance them, we’re reducing some talents that are giving a lot of power for only 1 talent point. The goal is to improve talent balance while also bringing them in line with other healers.

Divine Aegis absorption reduced to 5% of healing done (was 10%).
Inescapable Torment damage reduced by approximately 19%.

Rogue

Assassination

Fixed an issue that caused Internal Bleeding to be incorrectly applied by Deathmark’s version of Rupture.

November 10, 2023
Achievements

Treasures of the Emerald Dream again rewards the Forest Lord’s Antlers.

Developers’ notes: While this was originally intended to be the reward for the Dream On achievement, a bug resulted in it being rewarded by the Treasures of the Emerald Dream achievement, so we’re going to leave it there permanently and look for something else to potentially reward for Dream On.

Items

Reduced the Spirit effect on the Imbued Frostweave Slippers by 70%.

Developers’ notes: After reviewing the performance of this effect, we’ve decided to pull it back quite a bit as to not overshadow other items to the degree that it is. While this is a fun effect that will remain, we feel these slippers don’t necessarily need to be a required optimization for healers.

Quests

Alt player-characters can now complete the World Quest “Dryad Fire Drill” without completing Chapter 1.
