Patch 5.4.2 hotfixes for January 21

A new round of hotfixes for patch 5.4.2 have been released and posted to the official blog. This round includes a fix for a quest that was working incorrectly and several corrections to class abilities. In addition, the raid changes that were announced last week have now officially made the hotfix list.
  • The quest The Trident of Naz'jan should now see Ragnar Drakkarlund respawning correctly.
  • Restoration druids, you should no longer be incorrectly getting a haste effect from Soul of the Forest from failed attempts to cast Swiftmend on targets that are under a Cenarion Ward's healing effect.
  • Several class abilities were incorrectly calculating damage when used against targets with a greater than 75% reduction to damage from armor -- this has been fixed.
Read on for the full list of hotfixes.
