World of Warcraft, 12.01.2017

Hotfixes January 11

Another round of Hotfixes made it to the live servers, wiping out those 7.1.5 bugs.


  • Demon Hunter
    • Vengeance Demon Hunter’s Metamorphosis bonus to Armor no longer affects temporary Armor such as Unbending Potion.
  • Druid
    • Fixed a bug where Travel Form was not granting its full intended movement speed.
  • Hunter
    • Fixed a bug where sometimes Stomp would not hit the target.
  • Mage
    • Ray of Frost is now correctly modified by the Frigid Winds talent.
    • Splitting Ice will now cause Ice Lance to damage a secondary target even if the target is more than 40 yards away from the Mage.
    • Winter’s Chill will apply to targets of Flurry even if the caster is facing away from the target at the time.
  • Monk
    • Fixed a bug where Chi Orbit and Crosswinds were doing incorrect damage while Storm, Earth, and Fire was active.
  • Priest
    • Flash Heal will no longer consume 2 charges of Surge of Light if you have Trail of Light talented.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Trial of Valor
    • Helya
      • Resolved an issue that was causing too many Decaying Minions to spawn in phase 3 on Mythic difficulty.

Player versus Player

  • Priest
    • Grace now properly increases the absorption of Power Word: Shield and Clarity of Will while the Priest has Trinity.
  • Rogue
    • Shroud of Concealment cannot be used during Arenas or Rated Battlegrounds.
      • Developers’ Note: We generally do not allow abilities with cooldowns over 5 minutes to be used in rated PvP. As Shroud of Concealment has a 6 minute cooldown, it should not have been usable in Arenas and Rated Battlegrounds.


  • Enchanting
    • Mark of the Trained Soldier now correctly adds 600 Mastery, as its tooltip indicates.
