World of Warcraft Hotfixes – September 18, 2023
Player versus Player [with scheduled weekly maintenance]
- Disintegrate damage amplified by 33% in PvP combat (previously 20%).
- Developers’ notes: Devastation’s killing power outside of cooldowns is lower than we’d prefer, so we’re further increasing Disintegrate damage to assist Devastation in PvP. In upcoming patches, we aim to expand on this effort and redistribute damage from Dragonrage to other areas.
- Penance healing is enhanced by 35% in PvP combat (previously 15%).
- Volcanic Surge now boosts the damage of Lava Burst by 45% (previously 55%) and Lightning Bolt / Chain Lightning by 50% (previously 35%).
- Riptide healing is now increased by 25% in PvP Combat (previously 10%).
- Healing Stream Totem healing is now increased by 30% in PvP Combat (previously 20%).
- Unstable Affliction’s backlash damage amplified by 35%.
