Weekend or not – it’s not a new day without hotfixes in WoW. On Saturday, however, these will be a little less extensive than usual. In addition to death knights and shamans, all players who wear a piece of jewelry from the four “old” Mythic Plus dungeons can look forward to it.
When the developers decided to include four old dungeons in the first Mythic Plus season of WoW: Dragonflight, it was clear that this would mean a lot of work. Not only did an incredible number of mechanics have to be adjusted and entire bosses rebuilt, the developers also had to lend a hand with the loot. The primary aim was to bring the old items up to a power level with the new ones.
All in all, it actually turned out quite well. There are a few items here and there from the old dungeons that are very strong or very weak, but that’s not too bad. However, the developers want to close the gap even further and are now adapting a whole range of old pieces of jewelry.
Wow (buy now ) February 18, 2023 hot fixes
Some trinkets will get a bit more secondary stat to bring them up to par with the new trinkets. Shamans and death knights can also look forward to it. Because some of their cooldowns are now automatically reset when a boss fight ends. This eliminates the hassle of waiting until you can pull the boss again after a wipe.
Here are the official patch notes for the current hot fix:
- Items and Rewards
- Fixed a number of legacy dungeon items in the current Mythic+ pool that had secondary stats that were slightly lower than intended.
- We are adding Fire Elemental Totem, Earth Elemental Totem, and Army of the Dead to the list of cooldowns that are reset when an encounter ends. We feel this is safe now that Naxxramas is not the primary raid.
Unfortunately, the developers did not reveal exactly which pieces of jewelry are provided with a small buff of the secondary values. The amount of the buff is also not communicated. This could certainly be interesting for one or the other player, whose BiS jewel could possibly change with it.
