Class Tuning Changes & Kil’Jaeden Mythic Nerfs

The latest hotfixes are live and bring a lot of class tuning changes to compensate some bad scaling with the Netherlight Crucible.

Besides those tuning changes, Kil’Jaeden Mythic has been nerfed significantly.


  • Soultender Videx is no longer required for the Commander of Argus achievement.
  • [With restarts in each region] Argus Waystones no longer drop from bosses in Invasion Points. Any Argus Waystones in your possession have been converted to Veiled Argunite.
  • [With restarts in each region] The quests Invasion Point Offensive and Invasion Onslaught no longer require Argus Waystones.
  • [With restarts in each region] The Argussian Reach emissary again requires 4 World Quests completed.


  • Developers’ notes: All of the damage increases below are a combination of buffing specs that don’t benefit from the Netherlight Crucible’s item level increase as much as other specs, as well as tuning the specs relative to each other.
  • Death Knight
    • Frost
      • All damage increased by 4%.
  • Demon Hunter
    • Havoc
      • All damage increased by 3%.
  • Druid
    • Feral
      • All damage increased by 2%.
  • Hunter
    • Beast Mastery
      • All damage increased by 6%.
    • Survival
      • All damage increased by 5%.
  • Monk
    • Windwalker
      • All damage increased by 9%.
  • Rogue
    • Assassination
      • All damage increased by 5%.
    • Outlaw
      • All damage increased by 6%.
    • Subtlety
      • All damage increased by 1.5%.
  • Shaman
    • Enhancement
      • All damage increased by 3%.


  • The yetis of Feralas should once again have facial hair.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Vault of the Wardens
    • Fixed a bug preventing Inquisitor Tormentorum’s associates from automatically engaging players.

Tomb of Sargeras

  • Demonic Inquisition
    • The number of Echoing Anguish debuffs has been reduced to 2 (was 3) on Raid Finder, Normal, and Heroic difficulties.
  • Kil’jaeden
    • Reduced the health of Kil’jaeden, Erupting Reflection, and Shadowsoul by 5% on all difficulties.
    • The maximum distance from the center of the platform that Armageddon can spawn has been reduced on all difficulties.
    • The radius of the explosion from Bursting Dreadflame has been reduced on all difficulties.
    • Chaotic Eruption damage and knockup has been reduced on Mythic difficulty.

Player versus Player

  • All specs that received general damage increases above have been reduced by an equivalent amount in PvP, as the Netherlight Crucible’s item-level increases to the player’s Artifact weapon have very little impact on PvP.
