Hotfixes

February 8, 2023

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Items and Rewards
    • Updated the Platinum Disks of Swiftness trinket’s on-use effect to no longer be able to be dispelled, bringing it in parity with the other Platinum Disks trinkets.

February 7, 2023

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Fixed an issue where the Glyph of Righteous Defense was not applying the correct glyph in the Glyph UI. It is now working properly again.

February 6, 2023

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Daily quests now reset at 7:00 a.m. realm time, in order to coincide with all other daily resets.
  • Fixed an error when exchanging Emblems with Usuri Brightcoin.
  • Classes
    • Paladin
      • Retribution
        • [With weekly restarts] New glyph recipe added to inscription requiring 390 skill: Glyph of Reckoning. “Your Hand of Reckoning spell no longer taunts the target and can be used on targets immune to taunt effects.” This glyph will appear on inscription trainers.
        • [With weekly restarts] Seal of Vengeance and Seal of Corruption now apply stacks of their debuffs (Holy Vengeance and Blood Corruption respectively) when using melee abilities such as Divine Storm and Crusader Strike.
  • Dungeons and Raids
    • Ulduar
      • Fixed an issue where some players randomly received full resources (i.e. mana) unexpectedly in Ulduar.
  • Items and Rewards
    • Fixed an issue where certain gloves would display a texture on a character’s upper arms.

February 3, 2023

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Achievements
    • Alone in the Darkness should now be rewarded correctly to guilds killing Yogg-Saron on 25 player difficulty.
  • Classes
    • Mage
      • Arcane
        • The Arcane Stability talent should now correctly prevent pushback while channeling Arcane Missiles with the Missile Barrage trigger active.

February 2, 2023

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Classes
    • Death Knight
      • Fixed an issue where creating your first Death Knight would fail on the first attempt.
    • Druid
      • Nightsong Regalia (Tier 8) 4-set bonus heal now correctly triggers on each Rejuvenation.
        • Developers’ note: The once-on-every-other-Rejuvenation cast is true to the behavior in patch 3.3.5. However, the wording of the Tier 8 set bonus does not reflect this, and instead indicates that Rejuvenation should provide an instant-heal on cast. It seemed like the fair thing to do would be to reimplement the once-on-every-Rejuvenation-cast trigger rate.

February 1, 2023

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Items and Rewards
    • Stormjewels are now correctly unique-equippable.
    • The Blood of the Old God trinket now has the correct attack power value trigger in its tooltip.

January 31, 2023

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Classes
    • Druid
      • The Cenarion Raiment Druid set from Molten Core now reduces the cooldown of Tranquility by only 15%, rather than 50%.
  • Dungeons and Raids
    • Ulduar
      • XT-002 Deconstructor
        • Developers note: We want to make XT-002 Hardmode more approachable on both 10 and 25 player difficulties while maintaining the exciting pacing of the original pre-nerf 6 minute berserk timer. This will result in hp values that are technically lower overall than the post-nerf version of XT but the challenge, albeit a more reasonable one, will still exist with a much shorter fight duration.
        • 10 Player Hardmode
          • Total Damage required to defeat XT-002 reduced by 20% during the Heartbreak Phase.
          • Heartbreak Health % Buff is now 40% (was 90%).
          • Heartbreak Buff Health: is now 8,400,000 (was 11,400,000).
          • Life Spark Health is now 100,800.
        • 25 Player Hardmode
          • Heartbreak Health % Buff is now 40% (was 90%).
          • Base Health is now 18,000,000 (was 25,000,000).
          • Heart Health is now 4,410,000 (was 6,125,000).
          • Heartbreak Buff Health is now 25,200,000 (was 47,500,000).
          • Life Spark Health is now 302,400 (was 352,800).
  • Items and Rewards
    • Block value socket bonus tooltips for the following items are now consistent with their in-game effects:
      • Valorous Redemption Legguards
      • Heroes’ Redemption Legguards
      • Greaves of the Shatterer
      • Timewarden’s Leggings
      • Skadi’s Iron Belt
      • Jungle Stompers
      • Topaz-Studded Battlegrips

January 27, 2023

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Classes
    • Death Knight
      • Sigil of the Vengeful Heart now increases Death Coil damage and Frost Strike damage by the correct amounts listed on the item’s tooltip.

January 24, 2023

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • The Transitus Shield will no longer dismount flying players or prevent flying.

January 23, 2023

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Sack of Ulduar Spoils and Large Sack of Ulduar Spoils now drop Emblems of Conquest instead of Emblems of Triumph.
  • Creatures and NPCs
    • Elder Bluewolf of the Lunar Festival has been found, and we’ve relocated them to the Wintergrasp fortress.
  • Dungeons and Raids
    • Weakened the increased healing taken effect generated from Blood of the Loa in Troll Heroic Dungeons with Defense Protocol Alpha active. That buff now has a 4 second duration (was 10 seconds) and cancels when the enemy is no longer affected by Blood of the Loa.
    • Ulduar
      • Iron Council
        • Stormcaller Brundir’s corpse will no longer get stuck midair if killed during his transitions into and out of Lightning Tendrils.
  • Professions
    • Fixed an issue where you could not abandon Leatherworking.

January 19, 2023

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Dungeons and Raids
    • Getting into combat with a Risen Zombie in Heroic Culling of Stratholme will no longer prevent activation of Defense Protocol Alpha.

January 18, 2023

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Auction House
    • Added options to sort by Buyout Price and by Unit Price. These can be selected via a gear icon button to the right of the search sorting headers.
    • Now, when you select an item to purchase, the total buyout price is displayed next to the Buyout button.
    • Searching an item name in quotes will now perform an exact match search for that item name.
    • Shift-clicking an item with the Auction House open will now paste the name of that item in quotes to the Auction House.
  • Creatures and NPCs
    • Class trainers were inadvertently forgetting to charge money for the dual talent specialization, profession respecialization, and other paid options. While we investigate the cause of their inadequate accounting practices, we’ve asked them to stop selling the dual talent specialization ability. Anyone who has already purchased dual talent specialization will be allowed to keep it, and we’ll re-enable it once we’ve fixed the issue. The profession specialization services will continue to be offered, but may spontaneously start charging their intended fee.
  • Dungeons and Raids
    • Defense Protocol Alpha
      • Bounty Satchels from Heroic Daily Dungeons, with Defense Protocol Alpha active, are no longer tradeable to party members.
      • The Frostbite effect from Heroic Utgarde Keep and Heroic Utgarde Pinnacle, while Defense Protocol Alpha is active, now appears as a debuff and cannot be cancelled via the UI.
      • The Bounty Satchel from the Heroic Daily Dungeon, when Defense Protocol Alpha is active, is now multidrop. This was an accidental oversight and was always intended to be multidrop. This means all members of the party can loot the item and receive 3 bonus Emblems of Conquest.
    • Obsidian Sanctum
      • Sartharion
        • Now drops an additional item when 2 or 3 drakes are alive, similar to 3.4.0.
        • 10-Player now drops Reins of the Black Drake (instead of Reins of the Twilight Drake) when 3 drakes are alive.

January 17, 2023

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Azjol-Nerub
    • Krik’thir the Gatewatcher
      • Skittering Swarmers and Skittering Infectors can no longer cause additional web wraps when completing the Heroic version of this encounter with Defense Protocol Alpha active.
