Shadowlands Season 4 has lastly arrived in World of Warcraft. It isn’t sudden to see a couple of bugs that want ironing out as soon as a serious patch goes reside but it surely appears some courses and specializations aren’t functioning as they need to whereas inside Fated raids. As one of many major options of the brand new season, that is clearly lower than best.
Particular “Fated” affixes are supposed to breathe life again into the older Shadowlands raids, including a enjoyable problem and giving us a cause to revisit the beforehand outdated content material. With scaling to deliver these raids as much as the present energy stage, and higher gear rewards, Fated raids are a departure from the norm of earlier seasons.
Blizzard is conscious of the scenario however has said in a blue post (opens in new tab) that nearer inspection has “revealed a sophisticated drawback that we don’t count on to have the ability to repair shortly”. It isn’t clear whether or not it is the brand new scaling of the older raids or the Fated affixes themselves which have brought about the bug, however Blizzard has said it’s a “high precedence” for them repair.
The courses and specs, together with the spells that are not working accurately whereas inside Fated raids, are listed under (thanks, Wowhead (opens in new tab)):
- Feral Druid: Frenzyband
- Fireplace Mage: Mastery: Ignite
- Arcane Mage: Contact of the Magi, Harmonic Echo
- Beast Mastery Hunter: Beast Cleave
- Monk: Bonedust Brew
- Brewmaster Monk: 4-piece tier set
- Mistweaver Monk: Historical Teachings of the Monastery
- Outlaw Rogue: Blade Flurry
- Subtlety Rogue: Shadow Blades
- Self-discipline Priest: Atonement
It isn’t that the affected spells aren’t working in any respect, however they’re dealing so much much less harm and therapeutic than they need to be. This is not nice in any scenario and it is greater than just a little awkward should you major one of many affected courses or specs.
The severity of the bug impacts the courses in another way too. Self-discipline Priest, for instance, depends on Atonement to passively heal whereas dealing harm in order that’s an enormous drawback in a raid surroundings. Beast Mastery Hunter’s Beast Cleave, then again, is just used for AoE harm, so on single-target boss fights, they will not discover a distinction.
