Hotfixes July 17 & 20: Karazhan and Cathedral nerfed

Blizzard has made some tuning changes to Upper Karazhan and the Cathedral of Eternal Night over the past week. Both Dungeons should be significantly easier now.

Especially Moroes gave players a hard time on higher mythic keystone levels – enough for the Devs to cut the damage of Garrote by 90%.
