Patch 5.2 hotfixes for March 27

Anne Stickney

Another round of hotfixes for patch 5.2 has just been released on the official blog. It's a pretty short list, by and large involving changes for several classes. Before you get too panicked, most of the class changes simply involve tweaks to T15 set bonuses rather than direct class changes. Shaman with a penchant for healing, however, should be pretty happy with this round of fixes.
  • The shaman spells and abilities Chain Heal, Healing Rain, and Earthliving Weapon now all heal for 20% more.
  • T15 Brewmaster monk 2-piece should now correctly increase Stagger by 12%.
  • Oondasta's health has been reduced by 50%. This does not, however, make him any less terrifying or deadly.
Read on for the full list of hotfixes.
