A fresh batch of hotfixes for patch 5.4.2 have just been released and posted to the official blog. Today's list is fairly class-intensive -- many CC abilities involving casting speed reduction have had their affects on player targets gently adjusted. In addition to the list of CC tweaks is one small change to a quest in Northrend that will require a realm restart to be applied.
  • Death Knights, Necrotic Strike now only reduces the casting speed on player targets by 10%.
  • Rogues, Mind-numbing Poison has been similarly adjusted, and now reduces player casting speed by 10%.
  • Players helping out the Winterfin in Northrend will now be able to properly collect Winterfin Clams -- this will take a realm restart.
Read on for the full list of hotfixes.
