Patch 5.4 hotfixes for September 13

Patch 54 hotfixes for September 13
A new round of hotfixes for patch 5.4 have been released on the official blog. This particular round of hotfixes seems to mainly concern encounters within in the Siege of Orgrimmar raid. However, there are a few class tweaks, as well as a few new adjustments to the Timeless Isle as well.
  • On the Timeless Isle, the Fire-Watcher achievement now only requires players to obtain 2,000 Bloody Coins, rather than 10,000.
  • Lor'themar Theron and Varian Wrynn will no longer taunt Galakras in that encounter. Meat shields, they are not.

Patch 54 hotfixes for September 12
Another round of patch 5.4 hotfixes were released yesterday on the official blog.

  • On the Timeless Isle, Highwind Albatross already carrying players will no longer be interrrupted when attacked by other players. It will, however, still drop when attacked by the person hitching a ride in its beak.
  • Worgen and Alliance pandaren players should no longer be mistaken for Horde by Lorewalker Cho when completing the quest A Pandaren Legend.
  • The Flame-Scarred Cache of Offerings rewarded for killing Ordos now has a chance to award Flex Raid quality items, rather than LFR quality.

Patch 5.3 Hotfixes for July 26

Patch 53 Hotfixes for July 26
A very tiny batch of hotfixes were pushed over the weekend, and since good things come in small packages, we thought we would share them with you. Nothing hugely exciting unless these happen to apply directly to you, but nonetheless, here they are:
Blizzard

Creatures

Spirit of Warlord Teng should now properly give credit towards the It Was Worth Every Ritual Stone achievement when defeated.

Isle of Thunder

Additional fixes for situations where players using incantations to summon bosses are receiving the error message "You can't do that right now."

Patch 5.3 hotfixes for July 23 and July 19

hotfix gnome
Hotfixes for this week are very short indeed, but should be welcome for a few frustrated Brawler's Guild players. The occasional client crash that affected some when Ahoo'ru used Divine Circle should now be fixed, so you can't use that as an excuse anymore! Last Friday's hotfixes were a little more comprehensive, and set right a few issues with shaman abilities, quests, raids, and the Battlefield Barrens activities.

Patch 5.3 hotfixes for July 9

Patch 53 hotfixes for July 9
A new round of hotfixes for patch 5.3 has been added to the official blog. The list this time around is incredibly short, and just deals with a few bugs and errors for holy paladins and a couple of quest mobs that weren't quite behaving as they should.

Rygarius
July 9

Classes
  • Paladin
    • Holy
      • Mastery: Illuminated Healing's damage absorption shield should now properly interact with Battle Fatigue on both the initial application and when refreshed. Previously, Battle Fatigue was being incorrectly applied to the damage absorption shield a second time on refresh.

Quests
  • Last Rites: Thassarian should now allow players to speak with them, allowing the quest to be completed.
  • The Darkness Within: Captain Doren should no longer get stuck in evade mode if the player dies when he has less than 3000 health.

    • Talents
      • Fixed an issue where certain situations could cause Mages to not receive the Invoker's Energy buff after successfully completing an Evocation.

      • Fixed an issue where Protection Warriors are unable to receive bonus loot upon defeating Ra-den.
  • Scenarios
    • Blood in the Snow: General chat has been temporarily removed from the scenario to fix an issue affecting General chat in Dun Morogh. A proper fix for this is in the works in an upcoming patch.

Patch 5.3 hotfixes for June 14

Patch 53 hotfixes for June 14
New hotfixes for patch 5.3 have just been updated to the official blog. Today's round is short, sweet, and includes one change that should make raiders in LFR breath a small sigh of relief.

Rygarius
Creatures
  • Kor'kron Commanders are now immune to charms.
Raids, Dungeons and Scenarios
  • Throne of Thunder
    • Lei Shen
      • Bouncing Bolts that do not impact with a player will no longer cause Unharnessed Power to spawn on Raid Finder difficulty.
Pet Battles
  • PvP Pet Battles are now required to last at least a minute before the match is eligible for experience to be awarded
Items
  • Meta and blue gem sockets have been added to helmets awarded from Heroic Scenarios. Bonuses on the helmets have been reduced slightly to offset the addition of those sockets.
Brawler's Guild
  • Razorgrin should no longer slowly regenerate health.


That's a pretty big nerf to Lei Shen, even if it is for LFR only. Do you think the nerf was warranted? Do you think other bosses should be adjusted as well?

Patch 5.3 hotfixes for June 10

Patch 5.3 Hotfixes for June 4

Patch 53 Hotfixes for June 4
The latest batch of hotfixes aren't the hugest or most earth-shattering, but they don't make diamonds as big as bricks. There are several class changes, including some more fixes to the ever-entertaining druid Treants. There are also some fixes to quest bugs, and a small change that makes one particular PvP columnist here at WoW Insider a very happy bunny indeed. No more traveling to Mogushan just to duel!
  • Sun-Lute of the Phoenix King and Retinal Armors should no longer be scaling incorrectly for the level 85-89 bracket for Battlegrounds.
  • Path of the Last Emperor: Fixed an issue where rope anchors were incorrectly despawning for players that moved too far away from Seer Hao Pham Roo.

Hit the break for the full list.

Patch 5.3: Hotfixes for May 22

Patch 53 Hotfixes for May 22
Another day, another set of hotfixes. Patch 5.3 has not been without its hiccups, with a reasonable list of known issues appearing from Blizzard earlier today. But the developers are fixing the issues as quickly as they appear, with changes already in place to work out the problems encountered in the seat of knowledge, where the lack of a graveyard meant that players were unable to retrieve their corpses. A hotfix has been made which allows players who have died in the Seat of Knowledge to fly back to their bodies with a Spectral Gryphon (Wisp for Night Elves) or a Spectral Wyvern.

Is this the first step towards Blizzard allowing corpse flying in Pandaria? Check out all the hotfixes after the break.
