      • Fixed an issue with Divine Storm not hitting all nearby enemies if your primary target is affected with Judgment.

Creatures and NPCs

  • Fixed an issue that was causing Observer Yorik to respawn too quickly.

Items and Rewards

  • Temporarily removed the Conquest and Valor cap until the next season begins.
    • Developers’ note: Early in a season, it’s beneficial to pace gear acquisition by adding a maximum amount of Conquest and Valor that can be earned weekly to prevent having a dominant advantage by playing an excessive amount of hours in PvP and Mythic+. As the weeks go by and the cap increases, we reach a point where there’s no longer a dominant advantage in gear acquisition with grinding Conquest and Valor and it’s friendlier to simply remove the cap entirely for those who are catching up or gearing alts until the next season begins. We’ve reached that point and have removed the Conquest and Valor caps for the rest of Season 2. When the next season begins, all Conquest and Valor will be converted into gold and sent to the character’s mail.

Player versus Player

  • Paladin
    • Protection
      • Righteous Might (Necrolord Conduit) damage and healing reduced by 50% in PvP combat.
        • Developers’ note: We initially tuned the Righteous Might conduit for Necrolord Paladins with both PvE and Retribution Paladins in mind, but due to a combination of synergies and Protection-specific multipliers, Protection Paladins were able to near-double the effect of an already-buffed Conduit to create a deadly round-start burst outlier in PvP matches. We’re cutting down its effectiveness in PvP while we keep an eye on the conduit’s impact in PvE to see if follow-up tuning is necessary over the coming days.


  • Players who skipped the Maw intro while in a Timewalking Campaign should no longer be sent back to Stormwind or Orgrimmar when they reach level 50.
  • Covenant Campaigns blocked behind the Callings tutorial quest should now be properly flagged to proceed the next time they visit Oribos or their Sanctum Hall.
  • Fixed an issue where some characters who switched to the Necrolord covenant would not be able to see Emeni during the quest, “Never Had a Friend Like Me.”

User Interface and Accessibility

  • Fixed an issue that caused Mythic+ Rating to display incorrectly in Group Finder.
  • Fixed an issue where the tooltips for some Adventures companions were displaying with a gray background.

Burning Crusade Classic

  • You can now report players from the /who menu.
  • Fixed an issue where an extra confirmation pop-up would appear when entering a War Game.
  • Fixed an issue where keybinds were not correctly loading for the War Game Commentator User Interface.
