World of Warcraft hotfixes introduce Battle for Nazjatar improvements, tone epic gems down a notch


Following the launch of World of Warcraft’s major Rise of Azshara content update last week, Blizzard has issued a small series of hotfixes to address an array of bugs as well as a couple of balance issues in the new content. Notably, epic gems that grant a secondary stat will now provide 50 points of that stat rather than the previous 60, as the power differential between rare and epic gems was so great that players would sometimes find it optimal to use a piece of lower item level gear with a gem socket rather than a Titanforged upgrade.

The hotfixes also makes a couple of improvements to the Battle for Nazjatar PvP event, which “should now become active more often, while still ensuring that there are a mix of Horde and Alliance players present.” Moreover, during the Battle for Nazjatar, the faction that controls the most capture points will now earn more victory points, similarly to Arathi Basin and the Battle for Gilneas. And of course, there are a handful of bug fixes for quests, abilities, and the like that should make them more likely to function as intended. You can check out the details of all the hotfixes over in the full announcement on the game’s official site.
