Patch 5.2 Hotfixes for April 2


Nobody wanted to release anything yesterday, so along with the Patch 5.3 PTR notes and datamined information, we've also got patch 5.2 hotfixes for you. Patch 5.2 must be getting cooler by the second as the number of hotfixes is ever-dwindling, but there's still some bugs that need ironing out.

Funny enough, one of them has been hotly (ha!) discussed in our WoW Insider work chat this afternoon, and that is the spawn rate of Noblegarden's Brightly Colored Eggs, which, to the relief of the team, now spawn more frequently. However, given that the hotfixes went in today, maybe there needs to be another one to sort this out once and for all! The click-war continues.

Let's check out the hotfixes themselves. They're small, but almost perfectly formed:

April 2

  • Brightly Colored Eggs now spawn more frequently.

  • To the Skies!: Fixed an issue where players would remain on Thunderwing and be unable to progress to Stage 3.

Raids, Dungeons, and Scenarios

Throne of Thunder
  • Assassination Rogues should no longer be receiving non-dagger agility weapons from bonus rolls and Raid Finder.
  • Durumu the Forgotten's Eye Sore and Mind Daggers now deal less damage on Raid Finder difficulty.
  • Vampiric Cave Bat now deals less damage in Raid Finder difficulty.

  • Inscribed Bag of Hydra-Spawn now has an increased chance to activate its shielding effect.
