Patch 5.4.2 hotfixes for December 17

Anne Stickney

A new set of hotfixes for patch 5.4.2 have been released and posted on the official blog. The list this time around is very short, and simply includes a few adjustments to the Siege of Orgrimmar raid, one fix for discipline priests, and an adjustment to Terrace of Endless Spring.
  • Players looking to completely the Terrace of Endless Spring on Raid Finder difficulty now only requires an ilvl of 470 to be eligible.
  • Those working on the Paragons of the Klaxxi encounter in the Siege of Orgrimmar should find melee damage from the Paragons to be far less likely to spike.
  • In addition, a bug in which Xaril the Poisoned Mind was not properly using Toxic Injection when he joined the fight has been resolved.
Read on for the full list of hotfixes.
