Blizzard is rolling out frequent patches and revisions in the last stage towards the release of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands November 23.
Keeping everything in tune is a difficult task and Snow storm is working with Classic Y Shadowlands. With both upcoming massive releases between the Shadowlands expansion and the classic fall of the Naxxramas raid, the developers are almost overclocked at this point.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has another set of hotfixes on the way, with Blizzard releasing incredibly frequent batches of hotfixes to bring a better balance to the title. There is a lot to analyze, so let’s jump right in!
The Kyrian Pact was hit with a small change in Pelagos’ soul bonding, specifically switching to Letting Go of the Past. The skill now increases Versatility for 6 seconds, but will only stack up to 3%, down from 4%.

The Demon Hunters have enhanced the Kirians’ Elysee Decree Pact ability. The AP modifier has been increased to 3.5, a significant increase over the previous 2.62.
Wizards have had their Arcane Prodigy Conduit changed with a significant upgrade. Each wave of a Clear-Launch Arcane Missile reduces the cooldown of Arcane Power by 0.3 seconds. This cooldown reduction has been doubled across all ranks of the Conduit.
Priests have been hit by the Conduit of Exaltation with a seemingly small nerf, but it might be the only difference needed for players to avoid a certain Conduit. Rapture duration buff reduced from 2.0 to 1.0 seconds.
Shaman has seen an increase in his PvP Control of Lava talent. This talent now increases the damage of Flame Shock by 35% if it is on the Restoration specification and by 30% if it is on Elemental or Enhancement.
It also appears that the Pact of Infernal Intimity Anima Power has been specifically recorded for Warlocks, though it doesn’t seem clear. However, since it grants a buff to summoned demons, there are few other categories that the ability would belong to besides warlock spells.
There are dozens of smaller changes to the patch notes that don’t affect specific classes, or only affect NPCs. Wowhead has 21 registered NPC skill changes and 46 spell changes that don’t belong to any specific category.

This is certainly not the last time we will discuss changes to the title. Blizzard only has about ten days left until the launch of its long-awaited expansion, so players should expect to see almost constant changes in preparation.
