Fans of Knives: Our Weekly News Roundup for June 30th, 2015

Class Updates: Unsurprisingly, there has been a slew of hotfixes this week. Those that affect us:



Bleeding Hollow Toxin Vessel had its effect increased by 28% for Combat Rogues, and had its effect increased by 40% for Subtlety Rogues.

Combat: Killing Spree should now correctly only provide immunity to roots, snares, and knockback effects.

Armor Sets: Tier-18 2-piece set bonus for Subtlety Rogues should now work correctly with Anticipation.

Fixed an issue where Rogue Tier-18 Normal armor set was incorrectly using the appearance of the Mythic armor set.
