Patch 5.0.5 hotfixes for November 20

Anne Stickney

A new batch of hotfixes has hit the servers, and several issues with LFR have been tweaked and adjusted. Several encounters have also been adjusted for difficulty level, which should be a relief to LFR players. In addition, there have been a few tweaks to world bosses, and one mob in particular is no longer able to become an actual mob of creatures.
  • Alliance players, I'm sorry but Teng Applebloom has lost the secrets of cloning technology.
  • In the Heart of Fear, the Raid Finder version of Grand Empress Shek'zeer has been adjusted to be a more appropriate difficulty level. Amber-shaper Un'sok has also been tweaked.
  • The issue that sometimes caused Alani to despawn after being pulled with a Sky Crystal has been fixed.
Read on for the full list of hotfixes.
