Patch 4.2 Hotfixes

Patch 4.2 Hotfixes

Here you'll find a list of hotfixes that address various issues related to the recently released World of Warcraft: Cataclysm patch 4.2: Rage of the Firelands. 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.

Patch Information

June 29

  • Classes
    • Druids
      • Feral druids can now use Skull Bash in the Firelands raid. It only seems fair.
  • Dungeons & Raids
    • Baradin Hold
      • Eye of Occu’thar damage and health is now properly scaled for 10- and 25-player versions of the dungeon.
    • Blackwing Lair
      • All Brood Affliction debuffs applied by Chromaggus are now removed after zoning out of Blackwing Lair.
    • Firelands
      • The stationary Hell Hound pack at the front of the dungeon should no longer cause players to become stuck in combat.
      • There are now fewer Hell Hounds before Beth’tilac, making the engagement a little less… hellish.
      • Beth’tilac and her offspring now have increased health and damage on Heroic difficulty.
      • Rageface’s Face Rage is now slightly less rageful, as the increase of the rate of damage per tick has been reduced.
      • Creatures linked to Shannox will now respawn every 4 hours until he is killed, up from 2 hours.
    • Zul’Gurub
      • High Priest Venoxis and Zanzil have had the damage of many of their spells and abilities reduced.
  • Items
    • Cauldron of Battle and Big Cauldron of Battle no longer lose flask charges from repeated clicks when players already have one in their inventory.
    • Eternal Embers dropped in the Firelands raid now bind when picked up. Master Looters are only able to give Eternal Embers to players who are on the quest All-Seeing Eye.
    • Paladin tier 12 2-piece set bonus: It should no longer be possible to get a double proc of Flames of the Faithful.
    • Many item procs were not being triggered properly by melee auto attacks after a hotfix made yesterday. This has been corrected.
    • Holiday Rewards
      • Satchel of Chilled Goods, Keg-Shaped Treasure Chest, Heart-Shaped Box, and Loot-Filled Pumpkin will no longer remain in character inventory once the associated holiday is over. Players must loot the items from these caches before the corresponding holiday ends. More information can be found here.

      • The Ring of Valor
        • There is no longer a 6-second delay on the rising of the pillars after the match has begun.

    • Both Faldren Tillsdale and Jamus'Vaz (Valor Point vendors) now display items grouped together in the following manner: rings, necks, bracers, relics, ranged weapons, thrown weapons, then tier sets.
    • The Severed Visionary Tentacle is no longer infinitely applying to characters.
  • Quests & Creatures
    • Elemental Bonds Quest Chain
