Season of Discovery

  • Players who have completed the quest “Warranty Claim” but have misplaced their Pristine G-7 C.O.R.E. Processor before handing in the quest “Salvaging the Salvagematic” may now speak with the Lost and Found vendor Rix Xizzix in Booty Bay to recover the misplaced quest item.
  • Fixed a Sunken Temple issue where the Atal’ai Defenders encounter would not reset properly.
  • Druid
    • The Natural Weapons talents now increases all damage done by druids in Season of Discovery, instead of just physical damage.
    • The Gale Winds rune now reduces the mana cost of Hurricane by 60%.
    • Swiftmend no longer consumes a Rejuvenation or Regrowth effect on the target when used.
    • Developers’ notes: Please note that it does still require Rejuvenation or Regrowth to be on the target to be used.
  • Hunter
    • Rapid Killing now reduces the cooldown of Rapid Fire by 80% (was a reduction of 2 minutes).
    • Chimera Shot weapon damage percent increased to 135% (was 120%).
    • Explosive Shot base damage before attack power increased by 50%.
    • Sniper Training has an additional new effect: while Sniper Training is at 5 stacks, Aimed Shot is instant.
    • Serpent Spread now causes Multi-shot to apply Serpent Sting to its targets for 12 seconds (was 6 seconds).
    • Steady Shot now deals 100% weapon damage (was 75%).
    • Developers’ notes: There are more adjustments coming for Hunters. In general, we intend to improve the ranged playstyle and diminish the melee playstyle so that the two become more equivalent.
  • Paladin
    • Seal of Righteousness damage can now be critical hits.
    • Sacred Shield’s duration is extended to 60 seconds (was 30 seconds).
    • Crusader Strike has now gained an additional effect: Crusader strike now refreshes all judgement effects active on the target to a 30 second remaining duration.
    • Seal of Martyrdom can now “twist” with other seals, including Seal of Command.
    • Developers’ notes: Seal twisting was an interesting emergent effect that became popular during the original Burning Crusade, that utilized the slower server messaging system used in early versions of WoW to slightly extend the duration of the paladin’s active seal for a short time whenever a second seal was cast. This effectively allowed paladins to momentarily gain the benefit of two seals at once if they timed the application of a new seal to line up perfectly just before their weapon swing. We recreated this playstyle in Burning Crusade Classic and since then it’s been a popular request in other versions of original WoW, including Season of Discovery. As the game matures and we continue to listen to player feedback however, we recognize that for some, this is part of the charm and uniqueness of playing a paladin during those early eras of WoW’s history. We consider this change to be experimental and we will watch the performance and behavior of Retribution closely after this change.
  • Priest
    • Shadowform now increases all shadow damage done by 25% (was 15%).
  • Rogue
    • Saber Slash bleed now stacks up to 5 times.
    • Saber Slash bleed now also increases the impact damage done by Sinister Strike and Saber Slash by 15% per stack for the rogue who applied the bleed.
    • Saber Slash bleed now deals 3% of the rogue’s Attack Power in damage per tick (was 5%).
  • Shaman
    • Mental Dexterity now only triggers from dealing damage with Stormstrike and Lava Lash, and it now lasts 30 seconds (was 10 seconds).
    • Burn now increases Flame Shock Damage by 100% and flame shock DoT duration by 6 seconds, and causes Flame Shock to strike up to 5 targets (was 3 targets).
    • Developers’ notes: We’ve received a lot of feedback about the overall usability of mental dexterity, particularly for Elemental Shamans. This ability was not intended to be used by elemental, so the adjustments we’ve made are to help ensure its usage is a bit more enhancement-centric. To compensate, we’ve increased the output and usability of the Burn rune, with a slight quality-of-life improvement in the form of a Flame Shock duration increase which allows two Lava Burst casts to be used within a single Flame Shock duration.

I’ve removed the following from the updates above:

  • The flasks specifically for Sunken Temple now persist through death.

This was not intended. The Atal’ai Mojo potions are not meant to be flasks nor should they persist through death.

  • The increased armor value of certain mechanical bosses in Gnomeregan has been reduced slightly.

We also checked the Mechanical Managerie, and it is using the correct armor values.
  • Druid
    • Lifebloom mana cost reduced by 50%.
      • Developers’ notes: Lifebloom refunds half its new base mana cost per stack when it expires or is dispelled. This part has always functioned in this way, and we’ve seen a bit of confusion around how the mana return portion of Lifebloom functions.

  • Paladin
    • Crusader Strike now deals Holy damage instead of Physical damage, ignoring armor, and is now affected by Holy damage prevention. Crusader Strike is still considered a melee attack, and not a spell.
    • Seal of Martyrdom can no longer trigger Art of War, and will no longer be triggered by Frost Oil or other weapon procs.
  • Rogue
    • Redirect no longer triggers or is affected by the global cooldown, and its own cooldown has been reduced to 10 seconds.

    • Earth Shield mana cost reduced by 67%, and charges increased from 3 to 9. The base amount healed now properly scales with level and is about 50% higher than previously at level 40.
    • Power Surge tooltip revised to clarify functionality. This rune periodically grants mana every 5 seconds, equal to 15% of the Shaman’s intellect. Some potential timing issues that could have sometimes made it give less mana than intended have been fixed.
    • Ancestral Guidance cooldown reduced to 1 minute (was 2 minutes).
  • Warrior
    • Rallying Cry now correctly benefits the Warrior’s entire raid (was: the Warrior’s party only).

  • Paladin
    • Fixed an issue where Fiery Weapon enchantment and Seal of Martyrdom were triggering each other. Neither can be triggered by the other any longer.
    • Fixed an issue where Fiery Blaze and Fiery Weapon enchantments could trigger or be triggered by Seal of Martyrdom. Those interactions do not happen anymore.
  • Priest
    • Mind Spike damage increased by 10%.
    • Void Plague damage increased by 10%.
    • Shadow Word: Death base damage before modifiers decreased by 40% and spellpower coefficient adusted to 42.9% (was 64.3%).
    • Developers’ notes: Overall, this should result in a 33-40% damage reduction on Shadow Word: Death, depending on the amount of spellpower the priest has. Shadow Word: Death has been doing a larger percentage of overall priest damage than intended, and we feel like this could begin to put additional pressure on healers in PvE, as spellpower gear improves and the damage that priests inflict on themselves continues to scale upwards. It could also prove to be increasingly oppressive in PvP, as it’s an instant attack that can be used on the move, from range, with very little counterplay.
  • Rogue
    • Shuriken Toss bounce range reduced to 10 yards (was 15 yards).
      • Developers’ notes: This should reduce the chance of it bouncing a little too far and pulling extra packs in dungeons. It now matches the range of other chain spells like Chain Lightning and Avenger’s Shield.
  • Shaman
    • Fixed an issue where Fire Nova did not benefit properly from Elemental Mastery.
    • The Dual-Wield Specialization rune now provides 50% bonus damage to your offhand weapon swings.
    • Lava Lash now gains 50% increased damage if Flametongue Weapon is imbued on your offhand.
    • The proc chance of Maelstrom Weapon is now roughly 50% higher when your main hand weapon or your two-hand weapon is imbued with Windfury Weapon.
