  • Demon Hunter
    • Resolved an issue that caused Blood Moon (PvP Talent) to dispel two Magic effects from the initial target.
  • Druid
    • Fixed an issue where Lone Empowerment (Kyrian Ability) was not granting additional Mastery via Kindred Affinity (Runecarving Effect).
  • Monk
    • Resolved an issue that allowed Monks to activate Transcendence: Transfer while crowd-controlled by certain types of effects.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Timewalking
    • Increased experience earned from Timewalking dungeon completion by 50%.
      • Developers’ note: There was a bug introduced in 9.1 that caused Timewalking to give much more completion experience than the UI advertised, ramping up more the lower-level the base expansion was, which is why this wasn’t noticed with Warlords of Draenor Timewalking a few weeks ago. The intent is for all Timewalking weeks to give comparable experience – we put in a quick fix last night and have deployed the proper fix today. We also took the opportunity to recalibrate Timewalking experience and increase it.

Items and Rewards

  • Shards of Domination
    • The tooltip for Shards of Domination bonuses have been updated to more clearly indicate that the Rune Words are only active in the Maw or related areas. This is a tooltip change only.

Burning Crusade Classic

  • The Midsummer Fire Festival has been configured to run for 16 days, in order to give players a little extra time to complete its many quests. This means that Burning Blossoms, which expire after being held for 14 days, may disappear if they were collected in the first two days of the event and then never spent.
