Hotfixes

July 7

Player Versus Player

  • Priest
    • Holy
      • Ray of Hope will now increase healing done by the intended 50%, and can no longer be used while silenced.

Classes

  • Monk
    • Brewmaster
      • Exploding Keg now reduces enemy autoattack damage by 99% for 3 seconds, instead of causing all melee attacks to miss.
      • Developers’ Note: Exploding Keg had some unintended interactions with raid bosses which allowed it to trivialize some mechanics. Rather than making bosses immune to it, we’re redesigning the debuff slightly, in order to retain the spirit of the effect. A followup hotfix will restore the original functionality in PvP, and the tooltip will be updated in Patch 7.3.
  • Priest
    • Holy
      • Binding Heal will now always correctly heal the target, caster, and one additional target.
