Wrath Classic Hotfix Roundup October 17th to 25th

As with any new Phase, small hotfixes, typically addressing single issues drop regularly.

Random Dungeon Finder(RDF) has received numerous fixes. Starting with The Escape from Durnholde now correctly granting Luck of the Draw, the 5% buff from Dungeon Finder. Uldaman, Blackfathom Deeps, and Sethekk Halls should now also correctly reward players using RDF. Players will also no longer be able to queue for the original 10-player version of Upper Blackrock Spire.

Level ranges have been adjusted for RDF, with Classic dungeons having a range of 3 levels below the final boss all the way up to 5 levels above. Burning Crusade and Wrath dungeons will instead have a range of 3 levels below the end boss to 3-4 levels above. Shapeshifted Druids should also be able to correctly exit all dungeons, even if you don’t have opposable thumbs to open the door.

The Ashen Verdict reputation rings should now correctly be Unique-Equipped, preventing players from obtaining and equipping two different rings simultaneously. Death Knights’ tier 10 4-piece bonus should now correctly grant bonus damage.

The new Collections tab has its own growing pains. Netherwhelp and Frosty should now correctly appear in your collections. Mounts that only exist as items should now be correctly usable as well.

Hallows End has been having some issues preventing players from completing the meta-achievement Hallowed Be Thy Name. The Headless Horseman’s fire events should now correctly start in all appropriate towns. The Sinister Calling achievement has been temporarily removed from the meta-achievement, as it has been very hit or miss if it appropriately triggers. Mostly miss. The instance limit for the Headless Horseman event has also been doubled, from 5 to 10 instances per hour.

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Adjusted the logic controlling the levels at which player-characters are allowed to queue for dungeons in the Random Dungeon Finder so that it is closer to the range displayed, which was also adjusted. Now, all classic dungeons should allow a range of roughly 8 levels: from 3 levels below the level of the final boss to 5 levels above. Burning Crusade dungeons should now allow a range of 3 levels below the end boss to 3 or 4 levels above it, and Wrath dungeons allow a range that starts at 3 levels below the end boss.
    • Developers’ notes: The most noticeable effect here is that the minimum level allowed for some dungeons has gone up slightly. This is intended to address situations that arise for players whose level was significantly lower than the rest of the group.
  • Fixed a bug that could prevent Masked Orphan Matrons from starting the Headless Horseman’s fire events in various towns.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused Talon King Ikiss in Sethekk Halls to not grant completion credit for the dungeon in Random Dungeon Finder.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented Death Knights’ tier 10 Sanctified Scourgelord 4-piece damage bonus from working properly.
  • The “Sinister Calling” step has been removed from the “Hallowed Be Thy Name” achievement.
    • Developers’ notes: We’ve been working on a permanent fix for the underlying issue here, but we want to alleviate the immediate concern for players with Hallow’s End already underway.
