Patch 5.4 hotfixes for October 7

Anne Stickney

Another round of hotfixes for patch 5.4 have been released and posted on the official blog. The list this time is relatively short, with only a few minor class tweaks for both priests and rogues. In addition, a few changes were made to a couple of encounters in the Siege of Orgrimmar raid, as well as one significant change for those farming rare mobs on the Timeless Isle.
  • On the Timeless Isle, Evermaw's spawn is no longer tied to the spawn of Dread Ship Vazuvius.
  • Over at the Darkmoon Faire, Moonfang should now always drop something when he's defeated.
  • In the Spoils of Pandaria encounter on Flexible difficulty, the Sparks of Life should no longer have much more health than intended.
Read on for the full list of hotfixes.
