Hotfixes: June 6

Here you'll find a list of hotfixes that address various issues related to World of Warcraft: Legion. Some of the hotfixes below take effect the moment they were implemented, while others may require scheduled realm restarts to go into effect. Please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch update. This list will be updated as additional hotfixes are applied.

Additional information about the expansion can be found below.

June 6


Hotfixes

Legionfall Campaign

  • “Blood of a Titan” should now count toward the campaign quest “Championing Our Cause”.
  • “Relieved of Their Valuables” now requires 5 Hidden Wyrmtongue Caches (was 10).

Class Mount Quests

  • Kalec will remain visible in the Mage Class Hall while the player is on or eligible for any of the class mount quests, even if he has been sent on a mission.
  • Fixed a bug with spawning of the Silvermoon and Exodar marks for "Hiding in Plain Sight."

June 2


Hotfixes

Legionfall Campaign

  • “Championing Our Cause” now requires 1 Mission (was 3).
  • Elite Strikes now grant credit toward “Championing Our Cause”.

Player versus Player

  • Southshore vs. Tarren Mill
    • Killing a player or NPC will always reward only 1 point.
    • The score required for victory has been reduced to 150.

May 24


Hotfixes

Artifacts

  • Concordance of the Legionfall
    • Chance to activate slightly increased.
    • Now grants 4,000 Strength, Agility, Intellect, or Versatility at rank 1 (was 2,000).
    • Additional ranks now increase this value by 300 per rank (was 200).
    • Effects are now reduced by 50% in PvP situations.
    • Developers’ Note: While additional ranks of Concordance of Legionfall are intended to have a low impact, the trait was overall weaker than it needed to be. With these changes, it provides a stronger up-front benefit, and very slightly more value for Artifact Power spent past the first rank. These changes also result in an overall nerf in PvP, where we are continuing to monitor its performance.

May 22


Hotfixes

Achievements

  • “Grand Opening” now requires 8 spotlights activated during the Chronomatic Anomaly encounter (was 12).

Classes

  • Monk
    • Ironskin and Fortifying Brew once again grant the correct Stagger percentage.

Class Hall

  • Artifact Knowledge can now be researched to a maximum level of 40 (was 50).
    • Developers’ Notes: We raised the Knowledge cap from 40 to 50 very late in the 7.2 PTR cycle, out of an abundance of caution: We wanted to ensure that players of all playstyles, as well as alt characters, would view the Concordance trait as accessible. However, between the additional Artifact Power gains added in 7.2 and others that were hotfixed in after the patch released, we’re now well ahead of that mark. Knowledge 40 now seems more than sufficient for players to reach Concordance, and the prospect of months’ worth of additional Knowledge still left to research makes some players feel like their efforts in the interim aren’t meaningful. Therefore, we’re rolling the cap back to 40.

Player versus Player

  • Deepwind Dunk is now 15 minutes long, and each player killed during Deepwind Dunk awards 5 points.
  • Paladin
    • Attacking a Judged target will now cause Judge Unworthy to only spread that target's Judgment, instead of all your nearby Judgments.
    • Judge Unworthy can now spread Judgment to targets that are under the effects of crowd-control abilities.

    • Developers’ notes: We want to make sure that Nether Portal Disruptors and the enemies they attract are lucrative and exciting without overshadowing other options so that players feel inclined to focus only on the Nether Disruptor for Broken Shore play.

Hotfixes

Artifacts

  • The requirement "Complete 100 dungeons while using your Hidden Artifact appearance" to unlock Hidden Artifact appearance color variant 2 has been reduced from 100 to 30 dungeon completions.
    • Developers’ notes: The time and effort required for this Hidden Artifact unlock wasn’t consistent with the other two color unlocks. Additionally, now that Challenge Artifact appearances are in the game, requiring you to continue using your Hidden Artifact appearance (which can't be transmogged into the more prestigious Challenge appearance) for 100 dungeons was too much.

Hotfixes

Achievements

  • The "Defender of the Broken Isles" achievement is no longer required as part of the Legion Pathfinder, Part Two meta-achievement.

Developers’ notes: The rotating Legion Assault schedule is designed to have them active at varying times of day over the course of a given week, to accommodate different work schedules and available free time. We're hesitant to have an Assault last for too long, because they stomp on the entire World Quest content of a given zone for the duration, potentially leaving players with nothing to do there once the Assault is complete. But this design doesn't mesh well with an important achievement that requires completion of all four zones - if anything, it causes stress over scheduling and potentially missing specific zones during the cycle. The Defender achievement was never intended to be a major obstacle on the path to flight in the Broken Isles; its inclusion was more for thematic purposes and completeness. As such, we're removing it from the meta-achievement required to unlock flying.

Artifact Challenges

  • Arcane Mages can no longer use an immunity, such as Ice Block, to remove Arcane Biology.
  • Fixed a bug that was preventing some players from being ported back to the mage tower when leaving the scenario.

Assaults

  • While the Assault in Azsuna is active, Prince Farondis should now be visible to eligible players in Farondale.
  • Vile Soulwardens in Val'sharah are no longer hesitant to engage in combat.
  • Spires of Dread can no longer suffer damage from players' AoE abilities, and they no longer turn to face nearby players.
  • Jarod Shadowsong will now appear for players at the base of Black Rook Hold if they leave the terrace before completing "Battle for Val'sharah".
  • Drol'maz will now respawn even if his Dark Ritualists were not killed with him.
  • Destruction of Fel Spreaders will now grant group credit for “Defense of Emerald Bay”.
  • Fixed a bug where players were not receiving quest credit if they were in a raid group during the intro Legion Assault quests.

Broken Shore

  • The Sentinax should no longer advertise that it is finished recharging when it hasn't.

Classes

  • Druid
    • Fixed a bug that caused a Druid to sometimes be disconnected when casting Typhoon.

  • The Nighthold
    • Skorpyron
      • Resolved an issue in which Arcanoslash could place an Arcane Tether on a non-struck tank target.

April 4


Hotfixes

Broken Shore

  • Our Valarjar allies have deployed grapple points in key locations on Broken Shore.
  • Broken Shore Rare Elite icons will now appear on the Broken Shore map even when the player is not currently in the Broken Shore.
  • Creatures other than Rare Elites and Sentinax Lieutenants no longer drop Nethershards for players who are in a raid group.

  • Sentinax Lieutenants now drop many more Nethershards when slain.
  • Sentinax cool-down time lowered to 3 minutes (was 5 minutes).
    • Developers’ notes: These changes are aimed at aligning the pacing of the Sentinax area without significantly changing the rewards. Upgraded portals should feel more special, portal beacons more scarce, and the final boss for each round of Sentinax activity should be a more welcome sight. Since tapping rules and behaviors of large raids of players don’t present a good experience for nearby parties of five or fewer, and especially solo players who might come along, the change to drops for raid groups is intended to allow everyone more opportunities to tap enemies.

Classes

  • Hunter
    • (Hotfix in testing) Feet of Wind should now properly suppress movement speed reduction effects, as intended.
  • Rogue
