Here you'll find a list of hotfixes that address various issues related to the recently released World of Warcraft Patch 6.1.2. Hotfixes are updates made on our end without requiring a new client-side patch. Some of the hotfixes below take effect the moment they were implemented, while others may require the realm to be restarted 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.

The latest batch of hotfixes are listed below. Previous hotfixes have been compiled by category to provide a quick summary of all hotfixes that have been applied since the start of World of Warcraft Patch 6.1.2.

Tags may be added to some hotfixes to denote a special condition.

  • [Requires a realm restart] means the hotfix will not take effect until after a scheduled rolling restart or maintenance.
  • [Hotfix in testing] means the hotfix is in early stages of testing and may not be implemented just yet. However, the change is important and is posted to provide as much advanced notice as possible.

Raids and Dungeons

Blackrock Foundry

General

  • The health and damage scaling of aspects of several encounters on Normal and Heroic difficulties have been adjusted to make them less punishing for smaller raid groups, to account for reduced availability of external cooldowns and the larger relative portion of the group that must deal with certain mechanics. Overall, these changes should make the encounters easier for groups with closer to 10 raiders, while having little noticeable effect for groups with closer to 30 players.

The Blast Furnace

  • Phase 1
    • Furnace Engineers should now throw a bomb at players roughly every 6 seconds. Throw Bomb is now instant-cast, but the range is now 40 yards (down from 50 yards). These changes are intended to diminish the relative benefit of having two or more priests, compared to one or none: Mind Control allows for more controlled targeting of the Bombs, but does not speed up the phase as a whole.
    • Reduced the health of Heat Regulators.
  • Phase 2
    • Additional Bellows Operators should no longer incorrectly spawn after the fight has transitioned into Phase 2.
  • Phase 3
    • Fixed an issue where Heart of the Mountain's Tempered debuff could incorrectly persist on a player pet.

Operator Thogar

  • Fixed a number of issues that could cause the Operator Thogar encounter to not start correctly.

The Iron Maidens

  • The Iron Maidens should no longer incorrectly trigger a Dreadnaught phase if they reach 100 Energy and 20% health at around the same time.

Blackhand

  • [Requires a realm restart.] Slag Bombs' explosion now damages players in a 6 yard radius (down from 10 yards) on Normal and Heroic difficulties.
  • Incendiary Shot's damage has been reduced by 25% on Normal, Heroic, and Mythic difficulties.
  • Blackhand's Shattering Smash now deals 25% less damage during Stage Two on Normal, Heroic, and Mythic difficulties.
  • Blackhand's Demolition ability now deals 20% less damage and his Massive Demolition ability now deals 5% less damage on Normal, Heroic, and Mythic difficulties.
  • Blackhand's Marked for Death ability should no longer target players that just got knocked away with Shattering Smash if there are other available targets.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing Blackhand's Slag Bombs to incorrectly explode instantly and the Slagged debuff to incorrectly persist on a character.
  • Blackhand's health has been reduced by 5% on Mythic difficulty.
  • Blackhand's Massive Shattering Smash ability now deals 25% less damage on Mythic difficulty.
  • Iron Soldiers' health has been reduced by 15% on Mythic difficulty.

Legacy

Siege of Orgrimmar

  • Galakras: Fixed an issue where players could not advance to Phase 2 because Anti-Air turrets were not spawning correctly.

Throne of Thunder

  • Durumu the Forgotten: Fixed an issue where the cones of light may incorrectly spawn high above ground during the Light Spectrum phase.

Dragon Soul

  • Warmaster Blackhorn: Fixed an issue that could cause the encounter to not drop loot if Goriona was damaged too quickly during the transition to Stage Two.
     

PvP

Conquest Catch-Up Cap Changes

  • Conquest catch-up cap received a change to how it's calculated that should result in a roughly 50% increase to the catch-up portion of the cap.
  • The formula used to calculate a player’s catch-up cap is now: <Number of weeks passed in the season> × 1500 - <Total amount of Conquest earned this season>
  • Further information on this change could be found in the forum thread titled: Changes to Conquest Catch-Up Cap.

Battlegrounds

  • Fixed an issue where players were receiving more Conquest and Honor than intended for winning a Strands of the Ancients match via Random Battleground.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Isle of Conquest Workshop to not work correctly.
     

Collections

Heirlooms

  • In response to player feedback, we have increased the power of Heirloom for levels 91-100. This change is intended to help Heirlooms be more competitive relative to Draenor dungeon gear.

Items

  • Blood-Soaked Invitations should now convert into the correct Horde equivalent for Alliance characters performing a faction transfer.
  • Checkered Flag's mount speed bonus no longer works while inside of an instance such as dungeons, raids, Arenas, or Battlegrounds.
  • Explorer's Notebook or Garrison Scout Report used by players that already have an Exploration mission available should now be informed that they're not eligible for additional missions of that type and no longer incorrectly consume the item.
  • Primal Gladiator's Medallion of Adaptation should now convert into the correct faction version for characters that had undergone a Paid Faction Change.
