As promised earlier today, Blizzard has made their first round of hotfixes in Season of Discovery Phase 2.

Among other changes, druids have had their Starsurge damage reduced by 35%, and bonus spell damage reduced to 42.9%. To compensate, Starsurge now causes your next Starfire within 15 seconds to deal 66% increased damage.

There are also several changes to The Blood Moon PvP Event, mainly around the Drained of Blood debuff. The debuff duration has been reduced from 60 to 20 seconds, but it will now make you immune to being attacked. You’ll be unable to cast spells or attack, but you’ll be able to mount and move around, and you’ll be invisible to players outside your own party. This debuff also now has a visual effect.

You can read all of the hotfixes below.
