Update from 05 August:
The developers of Blizzard have published the German patch notes of the WoW hotfixes from August 04. We have updated the message accordingly.

Original message from 04. August:
Last night, the Blizzard developers have played new hotfixes on the live servers of World of Warcraft (now buy 14,99 € ). So it is now no longer possible to accidentally put Shards of Domination into a socket that is already occupied (causing you to lose the old shard until now). There were also bug fixes for Winter Winds and the spawn behavior of Phantasmic Amalgam in Torghast.

Before we take a look at the official patch notes from Blizzard, we want to remind you that various hotfixes have already been announced in the last few days, which will be activated with today's ID change on August 04:

Items and Rewards

  • Shard of Domination
    • [As part of weekly maintenance in each region] Rev's Shard can now be captured by Sylvanas Windrunner.
    • [As part of weekly maintenance in each region] Blood Link - Damage and healing increased by 20% at all ranks.
    • [As part of weekly maintenance in each region] 'Winter Winds'- Damage and healing saved from the winds have been increased by approximately 45% on all ranks.
      • Developer Comment: The three runewords of Shards of Domination are further apart in performance than we would like. We have found and fixed a bug with Winter Winds that was causing not all damage and healing abilities to count. Winter Winds and Blood Link have been adjusted so that the balance between the runewords is more even.

Below you can now read the official English patch notes from August 04. As soon as Blizzard has published the German patch notes, we will update this message. Hotfixes are updates that are applied server-side without the need to download new data. Some of the changes listed below will take effect as soon as Blizzard implements them, whereas others will only take effect after an announced realm restart. Please note that some issues cannot be fixed without a client-side patch.

WoW Hotfixes as of August 04, 2021 - Patch Notes

Items and Rewards

  • Shard of Domination
    • Shards of Domination can no longer be used in sockets that already contain a Shard.
      • Developer Comment: This change is to prevent accidentally losing a shard when inserting another without extracting it first. Bonesmith Heirmir in Korthia sells the Soulfire Chisel, which allows you to extract inserted shards, for 2,500 Stygia.
    • Fixed a bug where excess critical healing was counting towards the total value of Winter Winds. Only effective healing and damage should count towards this effect.

Torghast, Tower of the Damned

  • Torment
    • Phantasmic Amalgams that appear while Unstable Phantasm is active will no longer appear near party members on lower sticks when party members are on higher sticks.
