Dragonflight Hotfix Roundup: Firelands Timewalking Trinkets and Smelly Title

dragonflight hotfixes firelands timewalking trinkets

There’s been another round of hotfixes for Dragonflight, including some nerfs to several trinkets from the Firelands Timewalking raid: The Hungerer, Matrix Restabilizer, Necromantic Focus, and Vessel of Acceleration. A few other items were also nerfed for use in PVP: Ashkandur, Fall of the Brotherhood, Bile-Stained Crawg Tusks, and Forgestorm.

There were some fixes for paladins’ Blessing of Dusk, which apparently was not updating some cooldowns correctly. Hunters were also adjusted to reset their Sentinel stacks at the start of an arena or battleground.

Last but not least, the Smelly title has now been made account-wide, so if you’ve earned it on one of your characters, you can show off your stinkiness on your alts!
