Patch 4.2 hotfixes for July 14

Anne Stickney

Another night, another round of hotfixes for patch 4.2. Today's list, posted to the official Warcraft blog, is pretty short -- but it includes some tweaks to heroic encounters in the new Firelands raid. Also included are a welcome fix to those players doing dailies out in the Molten Front and a tweak for those seeking the new legendary weapon.
  • In Firelands, Rhyolith's Concussive Stomp damage has been increased on heroic difficulty.
  • In the heroic Ragnaros encounter, Molten Elemental move speed has been decreased by 15% on heroic difficulty -- but the adjustment will require a realm restart to take effect.
  • Players working on the Peaked Interest quest should no longer experience issues when the Fire Hawk Carry Egg Ping spell is cast.

Follow after the break for the full list of hotfixes.
