Many M+ Dungeons Got Nerfed

After the holidays, Blizzard are now back in action and been looking at M+ directly. We got 2 days back to back of hotfixes related to Mythic plus dungeons. Here are all the changes that took place on the first week of this year. 

Algeth’ar Academy

    • Overgrown Ancient
      • Increased the amount of time between abilities, particularly in relation to Burst Forth.

        • Developers’ Note: The combination of Germination and Burst Forth is the most dangerous part of the encounter. We hope by giving this moment more space, players will be better able to prepare for and recover from it

Azure Vaults

    • Telash Greywing
      • Fixed an issue where using an immunity on Icy Devastator would cause the next Frost Bomb to happen sooner
    • Azureblade
      • Increased the time it takes for Azureblade to drain their mana.

Brakenhide Hollow

    • Fixed an issue where Gashtooth would cast Marked for Butchery on pets. This should now correctly only target players.

Court of Stars

    • Advisor MelandrusAdvisor Melandrus
      • Fixed an issue that caused the images of Melandrus to inflict more damage than intended with Slicing Maelstrom. The damage of Slicing Maelstrom is now normalized across all enemies in the encounter and has been adjusted to compensate.
        • Increased the unavoidable damage effect of Slicing Maelstrom by 20%.
        • Reduced the additional damage of Slicing Maelstrom to players within 7 yards by 30%.

The Nokhud Offensive

      • Energy Surge damage reduced by 50%.
      • Surge of Power damage reduced by 80%.

        Fixed an issue causing Surge of Power to damage players through immunities on all difficulties.
    • Teera and Maruuk
      • Slightly increased Maruuk’s movement speed.
      • Added a slight delay on Quick Shot after Teera uses Gale Arrow.

Ruby Life Pools
