WoW: Hotfixes from May 20th 2021 are here and bring Denathrius-Nerf

August 12, 2021

The WoW developers have once again applied new hotfixes to the live servers of Shadowlands. This time it's Lord Denathrius who gets a nerf in the Heroic and Mythic difficulty of Castle Nathria: Players remain protected from his ability Crescendo for a short time after casting Hand of Destruction. The developers also fixed a bug with the Weapon of Malstrom ability on Amplified Shamans, which was causing issues when the ability would cause cast spells to become instant spells and then reset the Melee attack timer.

Below you can read the official English patch notes. As soon as Blizzard releases the German patch notes, we will update this post. Hotfixes are updates made server-side without the need to download new data. Some of the changes listed below will take effect as soon as Blizzard implements them, whereas others will only take effect after an announced realm restart. Please note that some issues cannot be fixed without a client-side patch.
