Patch 22.6.1 Hotfix – Battlegrounds Armor Adjustments, Tad Minion, Mercenaries Fixes

A new hotfix has been rolled out last night, mostly with Battlegrounds Armor changes. By the way, it’s pretty cool that those can be adjusted without an actual patch, it will make minor Battlegrounds balance changes way easier. Anyway, around a dozen of Heroes were moved either up or down in Armor tiers.

Besides that, the newly added Tad minion will now only generate cards that are still available in the minion pool. We also got a few fixes to Mercenaries – bounties and Merc abilities to be more precise.

It’s a server-side hotfix, so you don’t need to download anything. Read more about the changes below:

3/30 Update: We are currently in the process of rolling out a server-side hotfix with the following:

  • Adjusted several Battlegrounds Armor Tiers
    • Cookie the Cook and Nozdormu were moved to Armor Tier 1 (0 Armor)
    • Shudderwock was moved to Armor Tier 3 (3-6 Armor)
    • Elise Starseeker and Onyxia were moved to Armor Tier 4 (4-7 Armor)
    • Bru’kan, Kael’thas Sunstrider, Kurtrus Ashfallen, Rakanishu, and Rokara were moved to Armor Tier 5 (5-8 Armor)
    • Edwin Vancleef, Galewing, Greybough, and The Rat King were moved to Armor Tier 6 (6-9 Armor)
    • Illidan Stormrage and Vanndar Stormpike were moved to Armor Tier 7 (7-10 Armor)
  • Tad will now only be able to generate minions still in the available minion pool.
  • Fixed a bug where completing the Heroic Smolderwing Bounty, but not the normal version of the Bounty, would not progress you to the next Bounty within Onyxia’s Lair.
  • Fixed a bug where Yu’lon’s Jade Gust did not deal bonus damage if the enemy used certain Attack Abilities.
  • Fixed a bug where Nefarian’s Chromatic Infusion gained the wrong amount of Health when stealing more Attack than the target had.
