Fans of Knives: November 15, 2016

This week has been super quiet. We did get a PvP hotfix:


  • Feint reduces damage taken from player cast area-of-effect spells by 30% (was 50%).
  • (All specs) Stamina has been increased by 5%.

Developers’ Notes: Feint’s AoE damage reduction is intended to protect Rogues during dungeon and raid encounters, but many class abilities that feel like single target spells in PvP are treated as AoE effects (e.g. Lunar Strike, Ice Nova). This makes Rogues unintentionally resistant to those abilities. We’re reducing Feint’s AoE damage reduction in PvP, but increasing Stamina to compensate.


And Keydar of Dark Legacy Comics nails a small issue that so many of us have experienced:
