World of Warcraft monkeys around with trinket stats


When players next log into World of Warcraft, they may find a pleasant surprise waiting for them: a beefed-up trinket. Oh, and the release of Mythic Nighthold, but that was hardly a surprise.

Blizzard is improving the performance of some of the newer trinkets after determining that they were somewhat underpowered. “We’ve found that our tuning on trinkets which relied on a direct damage or healing effect (as opposed to their raw stats) have come up a bit short this expansion,” the studio said. “Overall, this should make the trinkets in Nighthold more competitive with other trinkets available elsewhere in the expansion.”

The studio also admitted that a bug resulted in recent PvP Season 1 rewards being distributed to some Alliance players based on Horde ladders. Blizzard will be correcting this error by giving affected characters the same or better reward after today’s maintenance.
