WotLK Classic Hotfixes March 28th – Val’anyr Bug Fix

wotlk valanyr hotfix

Blizzard fixed a bug with Val’anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings in which its absorb shield could grow to 200,000 instead of the intended 20,000. Blizzard claims that this bug existed in original Wrath, but was never noticed by players back in the day.

Today’s hotfix for Wrath Classic:

March 27, 2023
Wrath of the Lich King Classic

Fixed an issue where Val’anyr, Hammer of the Ancient Kings was absorbing more than intended. Accumulated absorb amounts are now correctly capped at 20,000 health.
Developers’ note: The absorb shield from Val’anyr was always intended to have a cap of 20,000 health, but there was a typo in the spell script in original Wrath of the Lich King version 3.3.5. The script was set the absorb amount to 200,000! This was never noticed by players in original Wrath.
