Patches and hotfixes

  • Legion Patch 7.2.5 (2017-06-13): Nightblade now increases your damage dealt to the target by 15%, with damage over time component reduced by 35%.
Developers' notes: Further pushes Subtlety away from maintaining Nightblade on all secondary targets and instead into focusing their damage into 1 target. Additionally, gives Nightblade a mechanical interaction with the rest of the core rotation that fulfills the "setup" feel of Subtlety.
  • Hotfix (2017-01-31): "Nightblade/Night Terrors now reduce the movement of targets by 50% (was 30%). The reduction remains at 30% in PvP situations."
  • Legion Patch 7.1.5 (2017-01-10): Night Terrors now reduces movement speed by 30% (was 50%).
  • Hotfix (2016-09-23): "
    • Nightblade damage increased by 15%.
    • Nightblade now deals 15% less damage in PvP."
  • Legion Patch 7.0.3 (2016-07-19): Added.
