HotfixesDecember 5Classes
  • Priest
    • Shadow
      • Vampiric Touch and Shadow Word: Pain damage reduced by 12%.
      • All other abilities increased by 3%.
  • Rogue
    • Outlaw
      • All damage abilities increased by 4%.
  • Warlock
    • Affliction
      • Corruption and Agony damage reduced 6%
      • Unstable Affliction damage reduced 4%
Dungeons and Raids
  • Antorus, the Burning Throne
    • Coven of Shivarra
      • Corrected an issue that caused the health of Torments to not properly scale with raid size.
    • Eonar the Life-Binder
      • Players who are disconnected during the Eonar encounter will have access to Surge of Life once they reconnect.
    • Argus the Unmaker
      • Cheat Death and similar effects will not reset their cooldowns when you die during the final phase of the Argus the Unmaker encounter.
      • Boss Health increased by 10% on Normal and Heroic difficulties
      • Soulbomb and Soulburst now deal periodic damage more rapidly

  • Convergence of Fates primary stat increased by 13%. Effect reduced to 3 seconds of cooldown reduction (was 4 seconds).
    • Developers’ notes: This change is aimed at changing how Convergence of Fate scales with item level – or rather, how it doesn’t. For some specializations, the cooldown reduction effect is so powerful that the item level of the trinket is all but irrelevant. We’re shifting more of the item’s power to primary stat and less in the base proc to cause the trinket’s scaling with item level to be more similar to other trinkets in Legion.

  • When both Convergence of Fates and Juggernaut Battlegear 4-piece are equipped, the value of the 4-piece set bonus will be reduced.

    All right I've got the numbers in. The OP now reads:


  • Convergence of Fates has been changed when used with Juggernaut Battlegear 4-piece. Now when both are equipped, after Battle Cry is cast, a buff increases the value of the set bonus from 0 to 100% over the span of 45 seconds.Hunter
    Beast Mastery

  • Convergence of Fates now causes the Serpentstalker Guise 4-piece set bonus to be reduced by 50%.
  • Developers' notes: With this trinket and the 4-piece set, instead of receiving 2.5 seconds of reduction per Kill Command, you'll receive 1.25 seconds of cooldown reduction per Kill Command.

    Good morning!

    I'm just confirming that we decided against the Convergence of Fates hotfixes. I've struck them from the OP of this thread.

    And I've replaced the initial post here with the final, full list of hotfixes.

    Thanks again for the feedback here and elsewhere.
