december 7, 2022 hotfixes

This week’s reset brings a whole new round of hotfixes – many of them aimed at class changes, quests, interface functionality, and weekly events.

Classes that saw hotfixes for this week: Hunter, Monk, Paladin, Priest, Rogue, and Shaman.

Some of the more notable hotfixes are for Enhancement Shamans and Subtlety Rogues. Shaman’s Maelstrom Weapon used to improperly stack with specific talents selected in the spec specific talent tree, but this has been resolved to function properly. Rogues see a fix where Alacrity, a finishing move synergy, is properly triggered by certain finishers. All other notable class hotfixes can be viewed in the original post (linked below).

Numerous changes were made to some of the Dragonflight dungeons, as well as the BFA dungeon Shrine of the Storm. These changes are quite simple ones, but should improve the quality of life for players. It’s promising to see that bugs are being continually addressed, since the M+ release is just over the horizon.

PvP nerfs were made to rings that could be obtained from farming reputation with the Cobalt Assembly. These nerfs should improve the PvP experience for most players as they were already quite powerful outside of PvP when they did trigger.

A number of quest and reputation changes were made that should improve the user-interface experience of players. Among these is the fix for the event map icons, where they will now show correctly for alts that have met rep requirements on their characters.

All these changes should help maintain the sanity of those who feel a bit overwhelmed with all the new content and systems that Dragonflight has brought to the table already.
