    • Soulbinds
      • Venthyr
        • Nimble Steps (Nadjia the Mistblade) will no longer cause excessive Immunity messages when the target is immune to its movement reduction effect.

    Dungeons and Raids
    • Sanctum of Domination
      • Remnant of Ner’zhul
        • Orbs of Torment should no longer be able to sneak in a melee attack.
      • Painsmith Raznal
        • [With regional restarts] Floor spikes created by Instruments of Pain now inflict their damage more closely aligned with the visual effect of the spikes on all difficulties.
      • Guardian of the First Ones
        • [With regional restarts] The Physical damage portion of Obliterate is now correctly increased by Obliterate’s vulnerability effect, and Obliterate’s vulnerability effect has been increased to 5000% on Heroic and Mythic difficulties.
          • Developers' note: On Heroic and Mythic difficulties, the Guardian's Sunder and Obliterate combo is meant to be shared between two tanks. Prior to this change, stringing together multiple immunity effects could allow a single tank to survive the entire encounter; this should no longer be possible. Our goal is to avoid a scenario where the optimal strategy for the encounter involves having only a single tank, unlike all other encounters in Sanctum of Domination.
      • Kel'Thuzad
        • [With regional restarts] Soul Shards will no longer despawn if the target of Soul Fracture is defeated prematurely.
      • Sylvanas Windrunner
        • Fixed an issue that could cause Sylvanas to cast a non-intermission Domination Chains prior to casting the intermission Domination Chains if pushed over the health threshold very close to the cooldown of Domination Chains.
        • Fixed an issue that allowed Thrall to affect Dark Sentinels with a knockback.
        • Bolvar should now more reliably cast Winds of Icecrown on Mythic difficulty.
        • Fixed an issue that would prevent Mawforged and Mawsworn enemies from granting on-kill procs.
        • Fixed an issue where Merciless could spawn an unreliable number of zones.
        • Fixed an issue that could cause players to teleport to the wrong location at the start of Stage 3.
        • Sylvanas should now move defeated players between platforms after casting Raze.
        • Fixed an issue that could cause Veil of Darkness to be applied to targets but do no damage.
    • Mythic+
      • Tormented Affix
        • Oros Coldheart's Frost Lance should no longer damage or knock back pets.
    • Tazavesh, the Veiled Market
      • Mailroom Mayhem
        • Fixed an issue where entering The P.O.S.T. while mounted could prevent players from picking up Unstable Goods during the encounter.
