Trinket Hotfixes

General Discussion
1 2 3 15 Next
Hello everyone- There have been several recent hotfixes to the stats on trinkets in Draenor, and we wanted to take some time to provide an update on these.

At launch, we found some issues that led to many Draenor trinkets being incorrectly budgeted (predominantly overbudget, though some were underbudget as well). We quickly applied one hotfix to attempt to resolve this issue, but there are still some issues remaining. That said, despite the overbudget, we won't be nerfing any existing trinkets. So, have no fear of purchasing any of these trinkets and only to have them end up nerfed.

Last night, we applied another hotfix which increased the stats on many epic trinkets in order to reach a balanced budget on these trinkets and ensure a proper trinket progression path through the Raid tier. This change affects world-drop BoE epic trinkets, Inscription-crafted epic trinkets, Highmaul trinkets, and Blackrock Foundry trinkets.

With the opening of Highmaul today we also wanted to wish you good luck!

Update: Scabbard of Kyanos was unintentionally buffed in yesterday's hotfix and we've reverted it to the stats it had yesterday. If you've earned one, fear not! It is still an excellent item and will be useful for quite a while.
can we fix the locks first pls

hey thanks for fixing it on the launch day. i'm very happy that i didn't buy a worthless trinket when it was cheap because it was meaningless, but the ninja-hotfix to make certain trinkets more valued than mythic trinkets is fantastic!

stop. making. changes. before. raids. release.

stop butchering classes that people level with intentions of raiding with to only neuter their spec completely and make them the worst to have, stop nerfing a trinket one day and then fixing it on LAUNCH DAY of the high in demand raid.
Good way to handle this.

go look at the list of hotfixed trinkets on wowhead, all the raid trinkets were buffed not only the crafteds
Why to fix meaningless trinkets when pvp is totally broken come on....
One question. If you can apply hotfixes like this without a restart, what is the point of the 8 hour maintenance? It's a lot of time, and I have no idea what happens...

I hope your GF/BF is okay with this..
Is there any chance you guys can revisit the tooltip wording? Many healing trinkets state that they proc 'on attack' but proc on heals anyway. DPS trinkets with the same exact wording however, do not.

A little clarity would be helpful in figuring out whether I'm supposed to be able to use a certain trinket as a healer or not, without having to check out of game sites for information.

Thanks!
Patch notes please?

Raid comes out today, along with 2 world bosses. The trinket is just a side thing they wanted to mention and I think the real maintenance is because of the raid/world bosses.

They have been ending way early as of late so just keep an eye on it.
Geez, louise....

Does this mean that armory profiles and the in game numbers will be the same? Highly confusing when both are different.
I knew there was something fishy with that 594 stamina trinket when Highmaul's didn't even break 200.
