Classes

  • Paladin
    • Retribution

Dungeons and Raids

  • Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible
    • The Vigilant Steward, Zskarn
      • Developers’ notes: These changes are directed at reducing the burden on tanks in smaller groups where Shrapnel Bomb was more difficult to handle with more limited amounts of utility from the group.
      • [With June 6 resets] Zskarn health reduced by 10% for small group sizes on Normal and Heroic difficulties.
      • [With June 6 resets] Shrapnel Bomb initial damage and DOT damage reduced by 50% on Normal and Heroic difficulties.
      • [With June 6 resets] Searing Claws damage reduced by 25% on Normal and Heroic difficulties.

    • Echo of Neltharion
      • Calamitous Strike’s debuff duration reduced from 40 seconds to 37 seconds on all difficulties. This is done to remove a problematic overlap in phase one of the encounter.

      • Fixed an issue where Neltharion immediately melee his target after casting Calamitous Strike on all difficulties.
      • Added a slight delay before the same player can trigger an additional stack of Shatter after destroying Twisted Earth on all difficulties.
      • Volcanic Heart’s radius reduced from 25 yards to 20 yards on Mythic difficulty.
    • Scalecommander Sarkareth
      • Developers’ note: A series of changes have been made to ease up a bit on the difficulty of this encounter on lower player size raids. Each of these changes are for non-Mythic difficulties only and scale back as raid size increases, evening out to about no changes for the 30 player raid.
      • [With June 6 resets] Health of Sarkareth and Null Glimmers reduced by 6% in 10 player raids.
