Patch 5.2 hotfixes for March 21

Anne Stickney

Just when you thought it was over, another round of hotfixes have been released. Today's list of fixes is pretty short and sweet, with only one small class related bug fix. The rest of the tweaks by and large involve the Isle of Thunder and the Throne of Thunder raid. And for those diligently working on stage 3 daily quests out there on the Isle, one of these changes should be a welcome relief.
  • Statue pieces for the Crumbled Chamberlain now do not despawn when looted, which means the hours of trying to beat other players to those pesky gear icons are officially over. Rejoice!
  • Because everyone loves a laser-slingin' dinosaur, Oondasta now respawns much more frequently.
  • Melee, you can cease fearing the snail. Gastropods in the Throne of Thunder should now favor attackers at range.
