August Celestials hotfixed to accomodate smaller groups

Just one hotfix was released last night, but it was a doozy for those looking to complete their legendary cloaks. All four Celestials on the Timeless Isle have had their health reduced to 25% of their original giant-raid-worthy health pool. If more than 10 players from the same faction engage with a Celestial, its health will scale up to compensate. The scaling will stop at 100% of their original health once 40 players are engaged in the encounter.

The last step of Wrathion's expansion-long chain to obtain legendary cloaks was easy enough when patch 5.4 went live, but these days fewer players are killing the Celestials each week. I know my server usually sees a lot of Celestial kills on Tuesday, but that number drops rapidly as the week wanes on, making it far more difficult for players that are trying to catch up and get their cloak. This change should hopefully make it a little more feasible for players to complete the quest.

While it's nice to see this change applied to the Celestials, I wish we'd see the same technology applied to the rest of Pandaria's world raid bosses as well. The Sha of Fear, Galleon, Oondasta, and Nalak all drop mounts, but it's difficult to find a raid group to take these bosses on so late in the expansion. As the expansion's end draws near, it would be nice to see that technology put in place for older content as well as the new. What do you guys think?

Patch 5.4 hotfixes for November 25

A new batch of patch 5.4 hotfixes have been released and posted the official blog. While the list is pretty short, there are a couple of class tweaks for both death knights and druids in there. In addition, Siegecrafter Blackfuse has been given several adjustments in the Siege of Orgrimmar.
  • Blackfuse's Magnetic Lasso will now also pull character corpses from the conveyor belt to the main platform of the encounter.
  • That pesky issue in which players dropping onto the conveyor belt immediately died from fall damage has been resolved.
  • Soul Reaper's additional damage effect should now trigger correctly even if the death knight is dead.
Read on for the full, if brief, list of hotfixes.

Patch 5.4 hotfixes for November 18

A small round of hotfixes for patch 5.4 have been released and posted to the official blog. Before you get too excited, several of these hotfixes require realm restarts to properly complete. However, today's list includes a few tweaks for shaman, one fix for Paragons of the Klaxxi, and a ... unique problem with a Battle Pet that has now been addressed.
  • Zao, Calfling of Niuzao, has been quietly convinced that he is not, in fact, the Headless Horseman, and will now make the correct noises when using his Charge ability. This will take a realm restart.
  • Shaman, Stone Bulwark Totem's damage absorption shield should now be properly affected by both Battle Fatigue and Dampening.
  • Xaril the Posioned Mind should no longer be taking credit in combat logs for attacks cast by players that were under the effects of Canned Heat. This will take a realm restart.

Patch 5.4 hotfixes for November 12

Hotfixes for November 12
Just because Blizzcon happened, doesn't mean the Blizzard hotfix gnomes weren't working busily on doing what they do best, fixing up those little bugs in the game that get in the way of everyone's fun.

Of course, you can hit the break for the full hotfix list, but most notable is the return of Armsmaster Holinka and Roo Desvin, the Quartermasters that sell Conquest gear for Honor, as long as you have the 27,000 conquest earned per season achievement. These guys were pulled due to some early calculation errors, but are well and truly back in business.

What's more, it now seems that, if you're afflicted by Garrosh Hellscream's Malice, even death won't save you! And, most importantly of all, Elder Lin and Sage Whiteheart have learned not to be all up in each other's business in the Shrine!

Hit the break for the full list.

Patch 5.4 hotfixes for October 31

Patch 54 hotfixes for October 31
A new, very short set of hotfixes for patch 5.4 were released and posted on the official blog. Four small hotfixes were made this time around, two for the Siege of Orgrimmar, and two welcome changes to Arenas for PvP enthusiasts. Check out the full, if brief, list below.

Rygarius
October 31

Raids, Dungeons, and Scenarios
  • Siege of Orgrimmar
    • Iron Juggernaut
      • Resolved an issue where the Iron Juggernaut had more health than intended on Heroic difficulty.
    • Siegecrafter Blackfuse
      • Resolved an issue where the deactivated weapons on the conveyor belt had more health than intended on Normal and Heroic difficulties.

Battlegrounds and Arenas

  • Arenas
    • For Arena matches that lasts for 20 minutes, the team with the most players left standing will now be awarded a victory. If both teams have an equal number of players alive, the match will still end in a draw.
    • Resolved an issue that caused the Dampening debuff icon to appear early, before the debuff is active.

  • Blood spec death knights, Death Strike's healing has been reduced by 50% in Arenas.
  • Several changes were made to various parts of the Garrosh Hellscream encounter on Raid Finder difficulty. These changes will need a realm restart to take effect.

Patch 5.4 hotfixes for October 21

Patch 54 hotfixes for October 21
A new round of hotfixes for patch 5.4 has been released and posted to the official blog. Once again, the list is fairly short, with only one minor class change, a fix for druids. However, this round does include some major changes for PvP that players have been waiting for, as well as some welcome changes to loot rolls for paladin tanks.
  • The Crowd Chose You has now been removed and replaced with Dampening, as mentioned a few weeks ago. This will require realm restarts to take effect.
  • Protection paladins -- you're now eligible for more pieces of loot from loot rolls in the Siege of Orgrimmar in both Raid Finder and Flexible difficulty. In addition, there are also more items for you on Ordos -- follow on after the break for the full list of items.
  • In the Galakras portion of the Siege of Orgrimmar, the portal leading back to the Vault of Y'Shaarj can no longer be used while in combat.

  • Noodle Cart chefs will now get a well-fed buff while serving other players bowls of noodle soup.
  • The eastern mine cart in the Silvershard Mines now should not spawn in until after the gates are down -- this will take a realm restart to take effect.
