Hotfixes February 7: Aluriel And Etraeus Nerfs

The first bunch of nerfs for The Nighthold are here!

Dungeons and Raids

  • The Nighthold
    • Spellblade Aluriel
      • (Mythic difficulty) Lowered the damage done by Mark of Frost by 20%.
      • (Mythic difficulty) Lowered the damage done by Detonate: Arcane Orb by 10%.
    • Star Augur Etraeus
      • (Mythic difficulty) Increased the initial damage inflicted by Icy and Fel Ejection by roughly 40%, and their periodic damage by 100%.
      • (Mythic difficulty) Reduced the health of Star Augur Etraeus by 5%, and the health of Things That Should Not Be by 45%.
        • Developers’ Note: These changes are aimed at shifting some of the role-specific requirements of the encounter away from damage output in favor of healing, while slightly reducing the overall difficulty of the encounter on Mythic difficulty.

Holiday

  • Players should be able to place Love Fools in battlegrounds, as intended.

Items

  • Legion Legendary items can no longer be destroyed.
    • Developers’ notes: There was a rumor that deleting a Legendary item would increase your chances of receiving a different one. It’s completely false.
  • Priest
    • Unequipping the Blessed Dawnlight Medallion now resets your Insanity to 0.
    • Binding Heal will now properly reduce the cooldown of Holy Word: Serenity while Al’maiesh, the Cord of Hope is equipped.

Player versus Player

  • Warlock
    • Entrenched in Flame will now properly function with Shadowburn.
