PvP hotfixes for December 11th

Whether you'll be pleased or disappointed by today's PvP hotfixes -- which Nethaera says are coming soon -- likely depends on which class you play. Balance druids, discipline priests, retribution paladins, enhancement shaman, and warriors are all getting tweaks (or, as some might say, nerfs). The exact changes are below.

Nethaera
We wanted to take a moment to update everyone on some of the latest PvP related hotfixes that are incoming which will affect the following specs and classes:

Balance Druid
  • Starfall damage against players is now reduced by 33%.
  • PvP set bonus that grants a charge of Starsurge when Entangling Roots breaks now has a 15 second cooldown.
Discipline Priest
  • Silence now has a 2 second duration (Shadow Silence is unaffected).
Retribution Paladin and Enhancement Shaman
  • The PvP 2 set piece bonus now grants 25% reduction in crowd control effects (down from 50%).
Warriors
  • Glyph of Shield Slam now requires defensive stance.

Patch 5.2 hotfixes for April 29th and 30th, nerf to Lei Shen

Throne of Thunder
There were a few hotfixes posted earlier this week, on both Monday and Tuesday. On the 29th, both Glorious Conquest Quartermasters took leave from the game for a while. Daxxarri explains in a forum thread that, because Glorious Conquest gear is changing from ilevel 512 to 496, they wanted to remove the vendors before players purchased gear that would end up being a lower ilevel than they bought it for. The change is too big to be implemented via hotfix, so the vendors will be returning with the next major content patch.

The hotfix for yesterday was a nerf to the Lei Shen encounter in the Throne of Thunder for Raid Finder groups. Lei Shen's overall hit points have been reduced by 10%, and the Static Shock effect from the North Conduit now deals only 300,000 damage at zero energy, down from 650,000. That's a big change, and hopefully will make that encounter a little simpler for struggling Raid Finder groups.
