The following hotfixes are scheduled to be live this week.

  • Shadowstrike no longer deals reduced damage in PvP (was a 10% reduction).
  • Eviscerate no longer deals reduced damage in PvP (was a 15% reduction).
  • Mastery: Executioner is now reduced by 20% in PvP (was 33%).

Developers’ notes: We’ve been keeping an eye on Subtlety’s damage during Season 2 and have identified a few prior PvP reductions that we’re going to relax to help with its overall damage throughput. With this improvement to Eviscerate combined with the existing PvP-only reduction to Night’s Vengeance (Azerite Trait) and the removal of Shuriken Combo we feel Subtlety’s potential Eviscerate damage will be brought into an acceptable range for PvP combat. Subtlety will continue to keep its PvP-only reductions to their stackable cooldown strength, but we also felt that it was necessary to increase throughput outside of those windows.
