Patch Notes: NW.25.2014081a.4


Classes and Balance

  • Control Wizard
    • Assailing Force: This feat may now be resisted and deflected in PVP.
    • Repel: Adjusted Timings to Repel to prevent it from being cancelled after a foe has been pushed. Foes should no longer randomly resist this power too much.
  • Hunter Ranger
    • Fox Shift: Can now be used without a target again and will properly go on cooldown when used, regardless of whether it hits targets.
    • Rain of Arrows: This power no longer builds AP when cast out of combat.
    • Seismic Shot: Will no longer fire a low resolution humanoid figure when at low video settings.
    • Soul Puppet: Soul Puppets now correctly despawn when their summoner is killed.
  • Scourge Warlock
    • Warlock's Curse: Curse will now correctly clean up when a target dies.

Content and Environment

  • Dread Ring: There is no longer invisible collision on the path leading from the Vanguard Camp to the Ribcage.


  • Resolved a few cases where enemies could not find a path to players ins some rare cases.

Items and Economy

  • Blue Dragon Glyph: Once the Aspect of Lightning buff is active, the damage reflection proc can now only occur once per second.
  • Oghmas Token of Free Movement now has a proper cooldown length at Legendary quality.
  • The Rod of Imperial Restraint artifact has a decreased drop rate for participation less than Great Success in the Venfithar (Rothe Valley) and Vilithrax (Whispering Caverns) Heroic Encounters. Great Success in the Heroic Encounters remains the same.
  • There is now a set bonus for the Scourge Warlock Dread Ring set.
  • Tyranny of Dragons: Faction cloaks are now properly free to transmute as they state they are.
