Army of the Dead Reset on Boss Kill Featured Image

A quick hotfix has been pushed to live servers, allowing Army of the Dead and Fire Elemental to reset after a boss encounter, similar to other cooldowns. Previously these spells were not included due to their potential impact, being very strong if usable on every attempt. As many expected, this did not deter guilds from simply waiting for the cooldowns between attempts anyway, causing significant delays for some raid teams that wanted to make sure they had every advantage for every pull.

Additionally, Vindication and Curse of Weakness should now stack correctly, meaning they will not stack with each other or with similar effects.

The full patch notes can be found below.

  • We are adding Fire Elemental Totem, Earth Elemental Totem, and Army of the Dead to the list of cooldowns that are reset when an encounter ends. We feel this is safe now that Naxxramas is not the primary raid.
