Blackrock Foundry: Clarifications/Known Issues
Over the course of Blackrock Foundry’s testing, we’ve made a handful of changes to encounter mechanics that are not currently being communicated in the Dungeon Journal. The Dungeon Journal will be updated with those changes in Patch 6.1, which is currently on the PTR, but we'd like to share those changes to minimize confusion.
Changes to the encounter that are not conveyed in the current Dungeon Journal, but will be in Patch 6.1:
Hans’gar and Franzok’s Crippling Suplex ability no longer deals damage based on maximum health of the tank who was picked up. It deals a flat amount of Physical damage to both tanks who are thrown together.
Gruul will instantly regain 50 Rage if his Inferno Slice fails to hit at least 4 targets on Mythic difficulty.
Blackhand will regain energy after using Massive Shattering Smash if it fails to hit at least 4 targets.
Known issues that will be fixed in Patch 6.1:
When grabbed by Hans’gar or Franzok in advance of Crippling Suplex, tanks are currently unable to use abilities. They will be able to use abilities while grabbed in 6.1.
Flamebender Ka’graz’s Singe debuff currently appears as a dispellable magic debuff on unit frames. It is not intended to be dispellable; this display issue will be fixed in 6.1.

Blackrock Foundry vs Patch 6.1 Clarification
Following some confusion about the addition of profession items with Blackrock Foundry, Community Manager Lore has posted on the forums to clarify just what is coming this week:
Correct. We've been seeing a bunch of confusion about this, so let me try to clarify as best as I can:
The opening of Blackrock Foundry is completely independent of the release of Patch 6.1. At roughly 10AM Pacific time tomorrow, the entrance to Blackrock Foundry will activate, and you'll be able to zone in and start killing stuff. No patch necessary.
Similarly, any of the new changes or features listed in the
Patch 6.1 PTR notes
will not be live until Patch 6.1 actually releases. That includes the Heirlooms collection, stage 4 crafted gear, new follower missions, various talent buffs, and the updated Blood Elf model. Any changes made prior to the release of Patch 6.1 (including balance changes and bugfixes) will be noted in our
Patch 6.0.3 Hotfix Blog
