With next week's scheduled weekly maintenance in each region, several Shadowlands dungeon trinkets will be adjusted:
Bladedancer's Armor Kit
- Soulletting Ruby critical strike rating granted reduced by 15%.
Developers note: Phial of Putrefaction, Soulletting Ruby, and Blood-Spattered Scale were part of a trifectra of dungeon trinkets that were overbudgeted enough that each new tier of item level scaling ensured they'd be among the best, if not the best trinket for classes that used them without question. Our intention here isn't to kill their viability, but give more wiggle room for situational competitors and introduce some more variance into player's gearing choices across Eternity's End.
armor and damage increased by 25%.
- Developers’ note: Bladedancer's Armor Kit wasn't providing the defensive value it promised tanks even in situations you'd expect it to be good, so we're taking a crack at it alongside Pulsating Stoneheart to try and make it less of a negative experience when these 2 drop for you, and more into a place where you'd consider them depending on your situation and class.
armor, health regeneration, and self-slow duration reduced to 6 seconds (was 12 seconds).Pulsating Stoneheart
armor increased by 35%, and health regeneration lowered slightly per-tick, but now ticks On-Use for a total of 7 (was 6) over the duration.
- Developers’ note - Pulsating Stoneheart wasn't appropriately tuned against the large downside of snaring oneself for a long period of time, so we've compressed the effect to mitigate the downside and make it a much stronger burst of defensive value in situations where you need it.
Fixed an issue where the Haste granted from First Class Healing Distributor
was scaling incorrectly with item level.
