Patch 4.1 Hotfixes - April 29

Patch 4.1 Hotfixes - April 29

Here you'll find a list of hotfixes that address various issues related to the recently released World of Warcraft: Cataclysm patch 4.1: Rise of the Zandalari. Hotfixes are updates we make on our end without requiring you to download a new patch. Some of the hotfixes below will go live the moment they are implemented, while others may require your realm to be restarted to go into effect. Please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch update. We will continue to update this thread in the days ahead as additional hotfixes are applied.

April 27

  • General
    • Disconnecting immediately after dying no longer causes players to lack a Release Spirit button upon logging back in.
  • Classes

      • Predator's Swiftness being active will no longer prevent Omen of Clarity Clearcasting from being consumed when it should be.
    • Hunters
      • Marked for Death is now applied properly to the target of Arcane Shot or Chimera Shot, allowing for focus macros (i.e. /cast [@focus] Chimera Shot) to apply Marked for Death to the focused target and not the primary target.
      • The Recluse Hatchling can correctly be targeted, attacked, and killed by players and NPCs after being tamed.
      • Serpent Spread was only affecting targets closer than 38 yards to the hunter. It now affects all targets hit by Multi-Shot.

      • Obnoxious Fiends should no longer despawn erratically during the Atramedes encounter. Their behavior is now only appropriately obnoxious.

      • Toxic Link (High Priest Venoxis) now has a 100-yard range, down from infinity.

    • Tol Barad
      • Attempting to use the "Have Group, Will Travel" guild perk while the Battle for Tol Barad is in progress will now provide an error that states "You can't use that here." After a battle concludes, the guild perk works as intended and summons party members to the caster's location.
