  • Melidrussa Chillworn
    • [With weekly restarts] Reduced the damage of triggering a Hailbomb by 40%.
    • [With weekly restarts] Reduced party-wide AoE damage on the initial cast of Hailbombs by 66%
      • Developers’ note: The initial on-cast hit from Hailbombs was never intended to be a large source of damage, and when scaled up on Mythic+ it is contributing more damage to the fight than we’d like, so we’re reining it in to give healers more breathing room to recover from Melidrussa’s other abilities.
  • Kokia Blazehoof
    • [With weekly restarts] Reduced period damage of Searing Wounds by 25%
    • [With weekly restarts] Reduced damage of Scorched Earth by 25%
