World of Warcraft slightly nerfs the brutal artifact challenge
A hotfix that went into World of Warcraft yesterday decreased the damage of the new mage tower artifact challenge that has been kicking the heinies of players since Patch 7.2 came out. Players have been attempting to conquer this challenge in order to obtain a new and desirable skin for their artifact weapons.
The nerf decreases key mobs’ health pools by 10 to 20% while also summoning smoldering infernals less frequently (because they keep making messes on the rug and who needs that?). One mob did get a buff, however: Kor’vas Bloodthorn’s health was doubled with the hotfix.
Other tweaks with the small patch include making beacon portals last 10 seconds longer, doubling the drop rate for portal stones, and being able to vendor those Sentinax beacons that have been littering your inventory space.
