Cataclysm Classic Hotfixes - 18 June (2)

Hotfixes

June 18, 2024

Cataclysm Classic

  • Faster than the Speed of Light and Vigorous VanCleef Vindicator are now granted properly after completing the achievement.
  • Archaeology Survey equipment should now appropriately despawn.

June 13, 2024

Cataclysm Classic

  • Race change, faction change, and paid server transfer cooldowns reduced to 3 days (was 30 days).
  • Magmaw will no longer fall backwards during Impale, preventing players from doing damage.
  • Fixed an issue where the Horde team was getting less resource points per tick with three locations captured in the Eye of the Storm, than the Alliance team would in the same situation.
  • Improved combat logging of certain effects.
  • Death Knight
    • Death Coil will no longer critically heal for 300% of the normal value, instead of the intended 200%.
  • Rogue
    • Vendetta no longer persists on the target when the Rogue specs out of the talent.

June 12, 2024

Cataclysm Classic

  • Druid
    • Balance
      • Developer’s note: We noticed that Balance druid gameplay was seeing a trend towards sitting in Solar and trying not to leave it, especially in Multi-DoT situations. Not engaging with a decent chunk of your core rotation to stay in Solar Eclipse is not a playstyle that we nor the original developers had intended, so we released a change last week that was aimed at preventing mastery snapshotting pre-pull by resetting Eclipse when engaging a boss.
        We understand this could be a damage reduction in many scenarios and to address this, Insect Swarm now deals Spellstorm (Arcane/Nature) damage so it can now benefit from Lunar Eclipse. This means that when you end up in Lunar Eclipse, you will still be buffing your two core DoTs. We estimate this change to be about a 15% damage increase to Insect Swarm, which is typically a Balance Druid’s second most damaging ability on non-single target encounters. There may still be situations where staying in Solar Eclipse is ideal, and that’s totally fine, we just don’t think it’s healthy for that to be every situation and on every pull.
      • Starting a boss encounter resets Eclipse energy to 0.
      • Insect Swarm is now considered both an Arcane and a Nature spell, causing it to benefit from both Eclipses. The tooltip will be updated in a future update.

June 11, 2024

Cataclysm Classic

  • Valor Points will now behave like Conquest and the current weekly cap will be replaced with a rolling seasonal cap.
    • Developer’s note: If you’ve missed any Valor Points in previous weeks since Cataclysm Classic launched, you’ll now be able to catch up from those weeks.
  • There is no longer a cap to the number of times you may earn Valor Points from Random Dungeon Finder each week, up to your normal Valor Points cap.
  • The Hood of Malefic wing affect should work once again.
  • Fixed an issue where the Wrack spell during the Sinestra fight could cause your game to freeze and crash.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the Staff of Disintegration from working to help you in the Tempest Keep Kael’Thas encounter.
  • Rotten to the Core is now granted properly after completing the achievement.
  • Darkmoon Faire
    • Starting this weekend, Darkmoon Faire will become available every two weeks, instead of once a month.

Cataclysm Classic

  • Fixed a bug in Conclave of Wind where a player dying could lead to Nezir dropping no loot.
  • Druid
    • Clearcasting will no longer be consumed by Nourish.
      • Developers’ notes: This mirrors a change that was originally made in patch 4.0.3a. Nourish is a low cost heal and is intended to be a filler spell. It simply doesn’t feel good to be casting Nourish and have Clearcasting go off, and then spend it on the incoming Nourish.

Cataclysm Classic

  • Fixed a bug in Conclave of Wind where a player dying could lead to Nezir dropping no loot.
  • Druid
    • Clearcasting will no longer be consumed by Nourish.
      • Developers’ notes: This mirrors a change that was originally made in patch 4.0.3a. Nourish is a low cost heal and is intended to be a filler spell. It simply doesn’t feel good to be casting Nourish and have Clearcasting go off, and then spend it on the incoming Nourish.
  • Paladin
    • Fixed an issue where Paladins could start Arena matches with Inquisition or more than 0 Holy Power.

Cataclysm Classic

  • Druid
    • Balance
      • Developer’s note: We noticed that Balance druid gameplay was seeing a trend towards sitting in Solar and trying not to leave it, especially in Multi-DoT situations. Not engaging with a decent chunk of your core rotation to stay in Solar Eclipse is not a playstyle that we nor the original developers had intended, so we released a change last week that was aimed at preventing mastery snapshotting pre-pull by resetting Eclipse when engaging a boss.
        We understand this could be a damage reduction in many scenarios and to address this, Insect Swarm now deals Spellstorm (Arcane/Nature) damage so it can now benefit from Lunar Eclipse. This means that when you end up in Lunar Eclipse, you will still be buffing your two core DoTs. We estimate this change to be about a 15% damage increase to Insect Swarm, which is typically a Balance Druid’s second most damaging ability on non-single target encounters. There may still be situations where staying in Solar Eclipse is ideal, and that’s totally fine, we just don’t think it’s healthy for that to be every situation and on every pull.
      • Starting a boss encounter resets Eclipse energy to 0.
      • Insect Swarm is now considered both an Arcane and a Nature spell, causing it to benefit from both Eclipses. The tooltip will be updated in a future update.
