Darkmoon Card: Sandstorm Adjusted, Lootless Bosses Fixed – Season of Discovery

april 10th hotfixes featured image

Just a day after the weekly update, we have received another quick round of hotfixes. This time focusing on fixes, with a few surprises in there for good measure.

Nightmare Incursion Kill Quests will now require 30% fewer enemies, making them feel a little less like a waste of time, especially after the experience nerfs.

Bosses should now always correctly drop loot, which means no more killing Princess Theradras only to be greeted by an enemy corpse.

The two damage-dealing Darkmoon Cards, Decay and Sandstorm have been adjusted to make them more appropriate for their intended use. What that means exactly is currently unclear, but hopefully Sandstorm doesn’t blind the raid anymore.

Screaming Chain Shoulders can now appropriately be learned by Leatherworkers. Sigil of Living Dreams no longer requires an Arcanite Rod to craft, down to a more reasonable Runed Truesilver Rod.

Crits from Consecration enabled by the Wrath Rune should now also trigger Vengeance for Paladins. Prayer of Mending critical heals should now appropriately trigger Divine Aegis for Priest, making that Rune at least somewhat better.

For Warlocks, Lake of Fire will now increase the damage of Immolation Aura. Immolation Aura now has a constant visual, making it more clear when it is active or not. Unfortunately there is no mention of fixing the ability to kill players in guarded zones with Immolation Aura. Finally, Shadow and Flame can now proc from criticals enabled by Pandemic.
