Blizzard has been quietly hotfixing class abilities in Season of Discovery. For Hunters, Scorpid Poison was adjusted just last night, and today some of those changes are now being reverted. According to Senior Game Producer Josh Greenfield, there were some unintended side effects. You can read his entire Twitter thread at the bottom of this post. Essentially, they’ll have to find another way to fix the ability that won’t interfere with pet scaling.

Rogues have also seen some adjustments to their Saber Slash, Deadly Brew, and Envenom runes. The debuffs tied to these abilities can now stack, so multiple rogues can benefit from them on the same enemy. That means that groups can now bring multiple rogues who are using the same runes with no issues. The inverse of this is also seen, as multiple Druids will no longer be able to stack Mangle on the same target.

Seal of Martyrdom and Shamanistic Rage will also no longer grant mana to players outside of their party and/or raid groups.

Season of Discovery

  • Seal of Martyrdom will no longer grant mana to nearby allies who are not in the Paladin’s party or raid.
  • Shamanistic Rage will no longer grant mana to nearby players who are not in the Shaman’s party or raid.
  • It is no longer possible to have two copies of the Mangle debuff active on a target.
  • Multiple Rogues can now have the Saber Slash bleed active on a target. If the Rogues have the Deadly Brew rune, they can each have a Deadly Poison periodic damage effect active on the target.
  • Pattern: Phoenix Bindings temporarily removed from the merchant faction vendor while we work to resolve an issue with the recipe.
