We have the long-awaited upgrade of the quest log cap in today’s hotfixes, as well as Cobalt Assembly tuning, gnolls getting less aggro-happy, class, quest, profession fixes, dungeon improvements and more.

December 9 (Source)


Fixed an issue where The Best at What I Do would lose or reset progress. Unfortunately, current achievement progress will reset for this fix.



Fixed an issue where Energized Barriers was removing auras instead of just the associated snare effect.



Fixed an issue that caused Accumulating Mist to not apply its buff if Soothing Mist was channeled on targets other than the Monk.



Fixed an issue preventing Catharsis from triggering Atonement healing.



Fixed an issue where Static Accumulation did not always properly work for the entirety of the duration of Ascendance.

Fixed an issue where Hailstorm’s maximum stacks could improperly be refreshed to a lower number when talented into Overflowing Maelstrom.


Soulburn now lasts 20 seconds and can no longer be canceled.

Spells affected by Soulburn are now correctly highlighted.

Creatures and NPCs

Fixed an issue where Brackenhide Gnolls in the Azure Span could pursue players over a much greater distance than intended.


Fixed the target of the parachute when using ride-along. The passenger will now correctly get the parachute, not the driver.

Dungeons and Raids

Brakenhide Hollow

Sentiu now shows up to help players out of the dungeon after they defeat Decatriarch Wratheye.

Hackclaw’s War-Band

Reduced damage for Rira Hackclaw’s Savage Charge on Normal and Heroic, allowing players a better chance to survive if things go wrong. The damage is not changed on Mythic.

Halls of Infusion

Gulp Swog Toxin no longer kills creatures and can only affect players.

Improved the visual for the Primalist Galesinger’s Thunderstorm so it is easier to see when placed in the water.

Nokhud Offensive

The Raging Tempest

Fixed a bug where Orb of Power does not grant players Surge of Power if the Stormsurge Totem is destroyed.

Return to Karazhan

Opera Hall: Westfall Story

Corrected an issue where Thunder Ritual and Wash Away were doing an incorrectly high amount of damage in Mythic (but non-Keystone) difficulty.

Ruby Life Pools

Lord Stormsong

Fixed an issue that was causing Ancient Mindbender to require too much damage to break.

Items and Rewards

Fixed an issue where Furious Ragefeather was not triggering from various damaging spells.

Fixed an issue where Infurious Legwraps of Possibility was providing the incorrect amount of Haste when triggered.

Fixed an issue where some Dragonflight toys were not getting added to the collection.



With the increase in fishing activity in the Dragon Isles, the Tuskarr at the watering holes are now looking for 20 fish (was 10) to restock their best fishing holes. They will be granting the following rewards:

200 Iskaara Tuskarr reputation for the first turn-in of Islefin Dorado.

100 Iskaara Tuskarr reputation for the first turn-in of each type of common fish.

5 Iskaara Tuskarr reputation for subsequent turn-ins of all fish.

The rare summoned lunkers are already immune to death grip, but the Elite lunkers are not which can make them trivial to defeat. The Elite lunkers (the ones summoned at fishing holes with Ominous Conchs) are now immune to Death Grip.

Developers’ Note: Normal lunkers randomly found while Tuskarr are fishing (and those available in world quests) are still susceptible to Death Grip.


The maximum number of quests that a player-character may have has been increased to 35 (was 25).

Developers’ notes: We’ve seen feedback about the quest log cap for a long time, and we agree. It’s time to increase it. Have fun taking on (up to) 10 additional adventures!

Fixed an issue where players were unable to see PvP World Quests while in Valdrakken.

Ohn’ahran Plains

Fixed an issue that occasionally caused multiple Grand Hunts to run at the same time in the Ohn’ahran Plains.


Fixed an issue where credit was not being shared among party members during “Flying Rocs.”

Fixed the interact range for objectives on “Time-Locked Timewalkers.”

World Quests

Updated tooltip to include Digging Spot on “Forgotten Grotto Relics.”

The Waking Shores

Fixed an issue where Djaradin in the Burning Ascent were not correctly giving credit for the quest objective in “Make a Statement.”

Fixed an issue where multiple instances of NPCs would remain after turning in “The Shadow of His Wings.”


Cobalt Assembly

Arcane Health will no longer be offered beyond 5 stacks.

Arcane Consumption will no longer be offered when in War Mode.
