Another round of hotfixes has gone out for Phase 2 of Season of Discovery following yesterday’s class tuning patch. There were several fixes to the way various class abilities behave as well as a few other changes.

Elite and dungeon quests will now give more experience, making them more worth doing when leveling. That should help players who are just now catching up to level 40, or those who are leveling alts.

There’s also a Zandalarian Emissary at the top of the Durotar zeppelin tower now, the one place that was apparently overlooked as far as locations where you can enter Stranglethorn Vale. This will allow players to opt out of The Blood Moon before they enter the zone.

You can read all of today’s changes below.

WoW Classic: Season of Discovery

  • Elite and Dungeon Quests now grant additional bonus experience.
  • The Dismantle enchant now procs more often for casters and melee.
  • The vendor price of Ez-Thro Radiation Bombs and High-Yield Radiation Bomb has been reduced.
  • Players in the Spirit World can now resurrect at Chained Spirits for up to 30 minutes after a Blood Moon ends.
  • Spirit of Redemption Form will no longer instantly cancel if you attempt to cast spells not allowed in that form. Doing so now returns an error message.
  • A Zandalarian Emissary can now be found atop the Durotar zeppelin tower.
  • Mage
    • Spell Power now benefits the critical strike damage of Spellfrost Bolt.
  • Rogue
    • Preparation now properly resets the cooldowns of Quick Draw, Between the Eyes, and Redirect.
    • Shuriken Toss will no longer sometimes cause loss of combo points when a Rogue is talented into Seal Fate and a bounced Shuriken crits a secondary target.
  • Shaman
    • Offhand Stormstrike hits can now correctly trigger weapon procs, including Windfury Weapon and Flurry.
    • Healing Rain no longer has a variant height for its animation. The Healing Rain cloud now always appears just above player’s heads.
  • Warlock
    • Haunt will now properly increase the damage done by Siphon Life.
    • Developers’ notes: Siphon Life behaves like Drain Life and will only be increased by Haunt if it is cast while Haunt is already active. These abilities do not dynamically update their values when Haunt is applied or falls off.
