Hotfixes

AUGUST 9, 2022

Season of Mastery

  • Naxxramas
    • Fixed an issue where bonus loot could not be rewarded when defeating a boss using Runes of Fortune.
      • Developers’ note: Raid groups should always receive an extra Set Piece Token, piece of Gear the boss normally drops, or Splinter of Atiesh per stack of Rune of Fortune the raid has active.

JULY 12, 2022

Season of Mastery

  • The Essence of C’Thun debuff now resets at the beginning of each Temple of Ahn’Qiraj boss encounter.

FEBRUARY 15, 2022

Season of Mastery

  • The Adventure Awaits aura benefitting all Season of Mastery players below level 60 now also grants +100% bonus gold from quest rewards.
    • Developers’ note: This does not apply to repeatable quests, nor does it apply to level 60 players, as they don’t have the aura. This is intended to match the recent increase to +100% XP granted by the aura, so that leveling players do not feel unable to purchase their most important spells.

FEBRUARY 11, 2022

Season of Mastery

  • Blackwing Lair
    • Fixed an issue that prevented the portcullis at the entrance of Blackwing Lair from closing and opening properly when bosses enter and leave combat.
      • Developers’ note: It’s possible that players may still experience this, and if the gate is currently stuck closed for you, it should clear up if all members of your raid group leave the instance for at least 30 minutes.

WoW Classic Era and Season of Mastery

  • Warlock
    • Fixed an issue with the “What Is Love?” questline.

FEBRUARY 10, 2022

WoW Classic Era and Season of Mastery

  • Fixed an issue where Orc Warlocks were unable to speak to Magar during the “Love Hurts” quest.

JANUARY 31, 2022

DECEMBER 13, 2021

WoW Classic Era and Season of Mastery

  • Thrash Blade, Carrot on a Stick, and Rune of the Guard Captain are now Unique-Equipped items.
    • Developers’ note: The ability for players to get another copy of Trash Blade, Carrot on a Stick, or Rune of the Guard Captain was meant to exist only as a means to restore a lost or deleted iconic quest reward without contacting Customer Support. Equipping two copies of the item was unintentional.
      If you had two copies of these items equipped, the second copy should be pushed into your inventory. If you happen to have a full inventory at the time of this change and the item is missing, if you free up an inventory slot and log in and out of the game then the missing item will reappear in the open slot.

WoW Classic
January 20, 2021

    • Kel’thuzad will now reset if any creatures walk past the encounter door.

WoW Classic
December 22, 2020

December 10, 2020

  • Naxxramas
    • Fixed an issue where Instructor Razuvious might attack totems or pets instead of players when engaged.

WoW Classic
December 8, 2020

  • Naxxramas

WoW Classic
December 4, 2020

  • Pets will now automatically attack hostile enemies and players when set to Aggressive stance.
  • Addressed an issue where Damaged Necrotic Shards do not take damage from defeating Shadows of Doom.
  • Entering Naxxramas now places you on the lower platform, while the teleport to Sapphiron’s Lair is triggered on the upper platform, allowing you to zone in and explore the 4 wings.
    • Developers’ note: The behavior of immediately teleporting players to Sapphiron’s Lair upon re-entry to the raid following the defeat of the 4 wing-bosses, IS authentic, but we felt the inability to return and collect Frozen Runes that had been missed was punishing enough to warrant a change here. In keeping with the theme, however, there is still no escape from Frostwyrm Lair short of using your Hearthstone or teleporting. Naxxramas is, among other things, a prison, from which the damned find escape difficult.
