Warrior (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)

Monk (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)

Priest (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)
Armor Sets

  • Tier-18 4-piece set bonus for Discipline Priests now targets friendly targets to heal with the greatest % of missing health instead of current health. For example, the heal now prioritizes a player with 350k/500k instead of a player with 300k/300k health.

  • Fixed an issue with Maelstrom Weapon that caused Healing Surge combined with the Tier-18 4-piece set bonus to heal for more than the intended amount.

Garrison Campaign

  • High Overlord Saurfang and Muradin Bronzebeard in the player’s Garrisons now have chance to offer the Hellfire Citadel weekly raid quest when eligible.


  • Ruined Construct: Jewelcrafters in a raid group should no longer see an option to insert 1000 Apexis Crystals into the Apexis Gemcutter Construct.

Creatures and NPCs
Tanaan Jungle

  • Fixed an issue that could cause the demon invasion leading to Painmistress Selora appearing to not work correctly.

Raids and Dungeons
Hellfire Citadel

  • Gorefiend should no longer be using other abilities while channeling Feast of Souls.

Fel Lord Zakuun

  • Fixed an issue that could cause Fel Lord Zakuun to cast two Rumbling Fissures in rapid succession after bringing him depending on when he was brought below 30% health.


  • Xhul’horac’s Overwhelming Chaos now increases damage dealt by 15% (down from 20%) per stack on Normal difficulty.
  • Combat rogues should now be able to correctly use Killing Spree again after receiving the Empowered Singularity debuff.

  • Players should no longer be occasionally dropped off the platform when transitioning into the Twisting Nether.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the portal leading to the Archimonde encounter to not reappear in the raid instance after a soft reset.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause Archimonde’s Shadowfel Burst to not be removed correctly when the ability struck multiple targets.


  • Ancient Artifact should now only appear when there are more than 20 players in the battle, and the item now has a respawn timer.
