Patch 6.2.2 is the first minor patch after patch 6.2.0.

Flying on Draenor

PvP Mercenary Mode

  • Players are now able to act as a mercenary for the opposite faction in PvP whenever your faction is experiencing a long wait time to get into Ashran or unrated Battlegrounds. Agents of the enemy faction will appear at your base in Ashran (Stormshield for the Alliance, Warspear for the Horde) and allow you to enter Ashran or Battlegrounds disguised as an enemy player, and actually fight as the opposite faction.
  • While competing as a mercenary, players will automatically have their race changed into one appropriate for the opposite faction. Players will still be able to earn all the same rewards as winning or losing as their original faction (with the exception of faction-specific achievements).

Raids and Dungeons

New Timewalking Rewards

  • Players now receive a [Timewarped Badge] when they complete a Timewalking dungeon. These badges can be redeemed at new vendors that appear during a Timewalking bonus event. The new vendors sell new toys, new mounts, in addition to gear that scales up to the character's level at the time of purchase.

Timewalking Loot Changes

  • Timewalking bosses who had unusual drops, such as  [Reins of the Blue Proto-Drake], now have a chance to drop those items when defeated while Timewalking.

Hellfire Citadel

  • Fixed an issue where players are not added back to the threat list after dropping out of combat and accepting a battle resurrection.
  • Fixed an issue where Hellfire Assault: Spoils of the Assault chest could incorrectly appear to be already open.
  • Fixed an issue where Tyrant Velhari could not be clicked on if there is an Ancient Enforcer, Ancient Harbinger, or Ancient Sovereign near her.

Dungeon Finder Changes

  • Completing additional Random Warlords of Draenor Heroic dungeon after the first one now awards 50 [Garrison Resources] (up from 0).

PvP

Ashran

  • Ashran now has a deserter mechanic. Upon entering, players receive a 10-minute buff called Ashran Tour of Duty. If the player leaves an Ashran match before this buff expires, a 15-minute debuff called Recreant will be applied that prevents entry into another Ashran match.
  • The timer on receiving a notification to join Ashran has increased to 2 minutes (from 1 minute)
  •  [Aviana's Feather] can no longer be used in Ashran.

Quests

Legendary Ring Quest Line

  • New weekly quests have been added to help players catch-up in earlier stages of the Legendary Ring Quest Line for Highmaul and Blackrock Foundry.

Events and World Environment

Bonus Events

  • Bonus Events now begin earlier in the week on Wednesday. End date remains the same so there's now more time to complete the bonus event! Check the in-game calendar for new start times of each bonus event.

  • Go beyond the dark portal on a flying mount to find three new rare elite Bleeding Hollow orcs that have a chance of dropping one of three new Crashin’ Thrashin’ toys.
  • Steelsnout should now be correctly immune to being trapped by Deadly Iron Trap.

Nagrand
