“World of Warcraft” remains one of the most popular massively multiplayer online role-playing games, but players still experience bugs from time to time. Luckily, Blizzard developers release hotfixes almost on a weekly basis to ensure players are enjoying the game as much as possible.

World of Warcraft’ hotfix: Bugs in Ny’alotha addressed for smooth gameplay

In this week’s round of “World of Warcraft” hotfix, Blizzard addressed a bug that was causing players to be locked inside the Chamber of Heart in Ny’alotha, the Waking City. The changelog indicates that the issue emerges when Carapace of N'Zoth and N’Zoth the Corruptor are both defeated while other boss enemies are not when playing on Mythic difficulty.

“World of Warcraft” players may have also noticed that Paranoia has been fixated on attacking tanks regardless of the difficulty setting when fighting N’Zoth the Corruptor. This should no longer be an issue once the game is updated to the latest hotfix released on Monday.

A couple of issues have also been addressed in the Keystone dungeon on Mythic difficulty. Tidesage Council’s Blowback and Slicing Blast damages were reduced by 20 percent. Players will also see Blessing of the Tempest more frequently now whenever it is enabled for Galecaller Faye. Heartsbane Triad member will acquire energy from the Focusing Iris slower now.

World of Warcraft’ update: Blizzard heeds players’ request, makes Corrupted Items easier to acquire

One of the most interesting changes this week has been applied to the equipment rewards. When playing the “World of Warcraft” game mode Horrific Visions, players can now expect all rewards to be Corrupted Items.

“We’ve heard from many players that Corrupted Items were not obtainable enough, limiting their ability to play with the system and its inherent tradeoffs,” Blizzard wrote. “This change will substantially increase the number of Corrupted Items reliably earned each week.”

Meanwhile, players cannot apply buffs to Twisted Appendage anymore. The same item, along with Infinite Stars, can only be used once in every 12 seconds in a PvP match. It should be noted that this hotfix applies for “World of Warcraft” players that have the “Battle for Azeroth” expansion’s Season 4 content update that went live last January.
