Patch 5.4.2 Hotfixes for February 10

Another small round of hotfixes has been applied to patch 5.4.2 following the last set on February 5. The couple of changes we're seeing relate to some terrain changes in Battle for Gilneas, making hills lower to reduce sight lines. There's also a change to Siegecrafter Blackfuse on all difficulty levels, indicative of the targeted Siege of Orgrimmar nerfs Lead Encounter Designer Ion Hazzikostas has described in the past.
Rygarius
February 10 Quests
  • The Battle for Gilneas City: Reduced Sylvanas and Gorerot's hitpoints. Rapier of the Gilnean Patriots no longer heals enemies.
Raids, Dungeons, and Scenarios
  • Siege of Orgrimmar
    • Siegecrafter Blackfuse: Significantly reduced the damage of Blackfuse Sellsword's Envenomed Shadowstep on all difficulty modes.

Patch 5.4.2 hotfixes for February 5

A small set of hotfixes for patch 5.4.2 were released yesterday and posted to the official blog.

Rygarius
February 5

Creatures
  • Huolon's spawn point has been moved to the ground.
  • [Requires a realm restart.] Ordos can no longer get stuck channeling Eternal Agony indefinitely.

Patch 5.4.2 hotfixes for February 4

A new, short batch of hotfixes for patch 5.4.2 were released and posted to the official blog yesterday. As far as hotfixes go, these are pretty minimal -- just addressing a couple bugs in the Siege of Orgrimmar, and one fix that should be nice news to those headed back to Icecrown Citadel for fun.

Rygarius
February 4

Raids, Dungeons, and Scenarios
  • Siege of Orgrimmar
    • Galakras
      • Resolved an issue where players that perform a soft-reset on the raid instance after defeating Galakras would incorrectly zone into the raid at Norushen.
    • Kor'kron Dark Shaman
      • Resolved an issue where Earthbreaker Haromm and Wavebinder Kardris could potentially path underneath the world.
  • Icecrown Citadel: Fixed an issue where defeating The Lich King too quickly could prevent players from receiving loot.

Patch 5.4.2 Hotfixes for January 29

The pink-haired hotfix gnomes have been at it again, with a very tiny round of new hotfixes following the most recent ones on January 28. While small, they're perfectly formed, and solve what must have been an extremely frustrating issue with Ordos. He will no longer tolerate your evasive actions. Or his own.
Rygarius
Creatures
  • Resolved an issue that could cause Ordos to be stuck in evade. For targets that Ordos cannot reach, he will now summon them to him.
Quests
  • Family Tree: Resolved an issue where Pandaren characters were unable to see their ancestors after lighting the Incense Bundle.

Patch 5.4.2 hotfixes for January 24

Another set of hotfixes has been posted to the official forums following the most recent ones on January 21. These focus on several tuning changes to General Nazgrim, and I'm sure many raiders will be happy to note that the Dark Shaman have had their recent decorating decisions overruled by Garrosh!
Lunar Festival
  • Elune's Blessing no longer increases Stamina and no longer stacks with similar player-cast buffs.

Raids, Dungeons, and Scenarios

  • Siege of Orgrimmar
    • Kor'kron Dark Shaman
      • Removed Lunar Festival decorations from the Valley of Strength. Garrosh has decided that his Horde has no need for such things.
    • General Nazgrim
      • General Nazgrim's Kor'kron Banner now has less health on Raid Finder difficulty.
      • General Nazgrim's Ravager no longer generates Rage when it strikes a player and deals 50% less damage on Raid Finder difficulty.

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.

Patch 5.4.2 hotfixes for January 10

A fresh batch of hotfixes for patch 5.4.2 have just been released and posted to the official blog. Today's list is fairly class-intensive -- many CC abilities involving casting speed reduction have had their affects on player targets gently adjusted. In addition to the list of CC tweaks is one small change to a quest in Northrend that will require a realm restart to be applied.
  • Death Knights, Necrotic Strike now only reduces the casting speed on player targets by 10%.
  • Rogues, Mind-numbing Poison has been similarly adjusted, and now reduces player casting speed by 10%.
  • Players helping out the Winterfin in Northrend will now be able to properly collect Winterfin Clams -- this will take a realm restart.

Patch 5.4.3 hotfixes for January 8

Another short and sweet round of hotfixes for patch 5.4.2 have been released and posted to the official blog. This time, balance druids and shadow priests are on the receiving end of some buff love. In addition to the buffs, one pesky bug from the Dragon Soul raid has also been addressed.

    • Balance
      • Astral Communion is now immune to interrupts. The ability still cannot be cast while Silenced, this will be corrected in a future patch.

Patch 5.4.2 hotfixes for January 6

January 6 is apparently buff day. A new round of hotfixes for patch 5.4.2 have been released and posted on the official blog. No bug fixes or adjustments to raid encounters this time around. Instead, the short list is simply a welcome set of buffs for both frost and unholy death knights, as well as hunters and elemental shaman.
  • Death knights playing in frost specialization -- Icy talons now increases melee attack speed by 45% instead of 30%.
  • Hunters, Aspect of the Hawk now increases ranged attack power by 35%, up from 25%.

Patch 5.4.2 hotfixes for January 3

Blizzard is back in the office, and a new set of hotfixes have been released on the official blog. While the adjustments made to the Siege of Orgrimmar raid are to be expected, the other change is a little different. Trade Prince Donais is now quite a bit tougher than he used to be -- players looking to easily farm Donais may want to turn their attentions elsewhere.

January 3

Creatures
  • Trade Prince Donais now has stats befitting of his position in the Bilgewater Cartel.
Raids, Dungeons, and Scenarios
  • Siege of Orgrimmar
    • Kor'Kron Barracks/Underhold Nexus
      • Kor'kron Iron Sentinel, Kor'kron Shredder, and Kor'kron Skullsplitter now deal less damage on Raid Finder difficulty.

Patch 5.4.2 hotfixes for December 19 & 20

The end of the year is upon us, which means we won't be seeing any hotfixes for a couple of weeks. However, before everyone heads out to celebrate the holidays, Blizzard has released a small set of patch 5.4.2 hotfixes to send us on our way. While the raid adjustments may not be particularly exciting, the information regarding the newest pet addition to Winter Veil should be enough to make anyone happy.

Rygarius
December 19

Raids, Dungeons, and Scenarios
  • Siege of Orgrimmar
    • Paragons of the Klaxxi
      • Ka'roz the Locust's Hurl Amber ability will now form a pool of Caustic Amber at the target's feet 3 seconds after targeting them. The timing was less predictable previously and varied based on the targeted player's distance from Ka'roz.
      • [Requires a realm restart.] Effects transforming a player's appearance should no longer prevent them from being able to interact with a defeated Paragon.
December 20

Items
  • Rotten Helper Box's drop rate has increased slightly.

Patch 5.4.2 hotfixes for December 17

A new set of hotfixes for patch 5.4.2 have been released and posted on the official blog. The list this time around is very short, and simply includes a few adjustments to the Siege of Orgrimmar raid, one fix for discipline priests, and an adjustment to Terrace of Endless Spring.
  • Players looking to completely the Terrace of Endless Spring on Raid Finder difficulty now only requires an ilvl of 470 to be eligible.
  • Those working on the Paragons of the Klaxxi encounter in the Siege of Orgrimmar should find melee damage from the Paragons to be far less likely to spike.
  • In addition, a bug in which Xaril the Poisoned Mind was not properly using Toxic Injection when he joined the fight has been resolved.

Patch 5.4.2 hotfixes for December 16

Another new round of hotfixes for patch 5.4.2 were released and posted to the official blog yesterday. While there were a few bug fixes, the biggest news comes in the form of the weighted randomization for abilities in Flexible raids. In addition, new item level requirements have been added for Flexible raids while using the Cross-Realm raid browser.
  • On the Timeless Isle, rocks from a cave-in blocking the entrance to the Mysterious Den should now be solid as ... well, rocks.
  • Dragonmaw and Wildhammer NPCs in the Twilight Highlands should be able to be attacked again -- however, this will take a realm restart.
  • Legendary metagem effects should no longer have a chance to activate while in an arena, battleground, or rated battleground.
