wow hotfixes december 13th featuredimage

All of today’s changes relate in one way or another to the current Legion Timewalking event.
The Mage Tower is getting further nerfs with the Holy Priest challenge having the Corrupted Risen Soldier damage reduced by 30%, and the Nether Horrors will no longer stop to cast in the Guardian Druid challenge. Additionally, gems from The Burning Crusade Heroic dungeons and Legacy weapon modifications will now scale as intended, both of which were used by players to make the Mage Tower challenges easier.
In Legion Mythic+, the Eye of Azshara and the Vault of the Wardens dungeons received some small nerfs, and several trinkets found in Legion Mythic+ will now have their damage split between all enemies struck.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Timewalking
    • Mage Tower
      • Guardian Druid
        • The change made to the Nether Horror’s ability to cast while moving has been reverted.
          • Developers’ note: When we were looking into Guardian Druid difficulty we thought that by making the Nether Horrors stop to cast their spell we’d make it a little easier by creating some more time to react to them; but it turns out we were wrong and we made it harder. So, we’re reverting that change to back to the way it was (which is once again identical to the way it was in Legion).
      • Holy Priest
        • Corrupted Risen Soldier damage reduced by 30%.
    • Timeworn Mythic+
      • Eye of Azshara
        • Players can now interrupt Binder Ashioi’s Magic Binding spell.
      • Vault of the Wardens
        • Tirathon Saltheril
          • Darkstrikes damage reduced by 25%.

Items and Rewards

  • [With realm restarts] Various trinkets from Legion dungeons now split their damage between all enemies struck, and deal increased damage for each enemy struck, up to 5 enemies. Additionally, their damage has also been increased. Tooltips will be updated in a future patch to reflect the new functionality.
    • The following trinkets damage increased by 50%:
      • Windscar Whetstone
      • Giant Ornamental Pearl
      • Corrupted Starlight
      • Caged Horror
    • The following trinket’s damage increased by 500%:
      • Mark of Dargrul
  • [With realm restarts] Gems found in Burning Crusade Heroic dungeons now scale properly with character level.
  • [With realm restarts] Fixed a scaling issue with several Legacy weapon modifications (sharpening stones, weightstones, and enchantments such as Major Striking) that added flat damage to weapons, causing these modifications to be much more powerful than intended.
