With the Season 4 of Shadowlands right around the corner, we are getting some adjustments to the first Fated Raid: Castle Nathria. Most of these changes however, will not be affecting the Mythic difficulty, which remains untouched except for a knockback reduction to the shattering blast Shattering Blast ability during the Stone Legion Generals encounter.
