Hotfixes for PvP items and the fire bomb of the Mantis


from Karsten Scholz
Last night, the developers at Blizzard played a hotfix trio on the live servers, which is aimed primarily at all PvP players. First, you can now upgrade items from the weekly rated PvP quest with contained contaminants and the Poked Eye of N'Zoth. Second, the tainted gladiator's trinket holds those affected in battle throughout the effect time. Thirdly, a bug in the Mantis' fire bomb was removed, thanks to which the damage to players was incorrectly high.

Last night, the developers at Blizzard played a hotfix trio on the live servers, which is aimed primarily at all PvP players. First, you can now use items from the weekly rated PvP quest contained contaminants and the Punched out eye by N'Zoth improve. Second, the trinket holds Corrupt Gladiator's Resentment Affected during the entire effect time in combat. And third, a bug in the Firebomb of the Mantis removed, thanks to which the damage to players was incorrectly high.

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