World of Warcraft, 13.04.2017

Hotfixes April 12 and 13

Some minor fixes have been applied the past two days, including a small Outlaw Rogue buff.

April 13

Broken Shore

  • Sentinax: Bloodstrike is now a debuff.
  • Players should no longer be offered the “Armies of Legionfall” quest before they can accept it.
  • Champion Aquaclease can now be taken down the Path of Suffering during “By Water Be Purged”.


  • Rogue
    • Outlaw
      • Loaded Dice buff duration increased to 45 seconds (was 15 seconds).


  • [Hotfix in testing] Bodyguards now gain significantly more XP from player quests.


  • Prowling Shadowstalkers spawnrates and spawn quantities have been improved for “Get Them Up” and “A Flare in the Dark”.

April 12


  • 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.

Bonus Event

  • Corrected an issue preventing some players from accepting The Arena Calls skirmish event quest.


  • Warlock
    • Wrathguard’s Mortal Cleave should now hit the same arc as the Felguard’s Legion Strike ability.
    • The Observer’s Optical Blast should now share a cooldown with other Silence effects.
    • Flames of Sargeras (Artifact Trait) increases the damage of both Conflagrate and Shadowburn.


  • Kil’jaeden’s Burning Wish now deals damage when equipped by level 101-109 characters.


  • Melandrus’ Star-Touched Bracers now drop in Heroic difficulty during “The Thread of Starlight”.
