Video Game Updates & Patch Notes

World of Warcraft Hotfixes for May 28, Thoughtsteal Fixes, New Quests, and Classic Changes

Blizzard has released a new update for World of Warcraft with today’s reset, namely to apply some changes and updates that will improve the experience for everyone.

So let’s start wit the Priests in PvP. Thoughtsteal has always been a bit of a double-edged sword. You get to snag abilities from your foes, but occasionally, it comes at the cost of your own powers. Not anymore! Blizzard has made it so Thoughtsteal can no longer be canceled, and it won’t cause Priests to learn a spell they already know. The target still loses access to the stolen ability, so the utility remains intact.

On the questing front, there’s a small but noteworthy change. Verdisa has realized she was parked in a prime quest spot for “Forget Her Not” and has scooted a few feet over. It’s a minor tweak, but it should make completing that quest a bit smoother. For those diving into the WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria, new quests available.

The full list of changes can be found below:

World of Warcraft May 28, 2024 Changelog

Player versus Player

  • Priest
    • Thoughtsteal can no longer be canceled.
    • Thoughtsteal no longer causes the casting Priest to learn a spell they already know (example: a Shadow Priest stealing Vampiric Touch from another Shadow Priest). The target of the Thoughtsteal still loses access to the stolen ability.
    • Developers’ notes: These changes resolve an issue where Priests could lose access to existing abilities after casting Thoughtsteal.

Quests

  • Verdisa did not realize she was sitting on an important location for the quest “Forget Her Not” and has moved a few feet away.

WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria

  • On Friday, May 24, the following changes were deployed:
    • There are now three new quests that grant Bronze to player-characters upon reaching levels 50, 60, and 70.
    • The new quests are only available to player-characters who did not kill many Gulp Frogs during the first three days of the event.
    • Player-characters who killed many Gulp Frogs during the first days of the event have been modified. The power of their Cloak of Infinite Potential was reduced to an amount that a very engaged player could reasonably achieve.

Cataclysm Classic

  • Fixed an issue that was causing Glubtok to summon adds in Normal Deadmines.
  • Fixed an issue with many guild profession achievements not tracking as expected.
  • The Twin Peaks battleground is temporarily unavailable while some issues are addressed.
  • Death Knight
    • Fixed an issue with Desecration not being removed by Bladestorm.
  • Druid
    • Leader of the Pack’s tooltip now correctly states that the Druid’s melee critical strikes in Cat and Bear for cause them to heal 4% of their total health (incorrectly showed 5%).
  • Hunter
    • Primate Hunter pets now understand that they can’t move while using their Bad Manner ability and will successfully cast the spell without interrupting themselves.
    • Furious Howl will no longer stack with other % Crit chance increases such as Leader of the Pack and Rampage.

Season of Discovery

  • Updated many items that drop in Sunken Temple to be better for casters and more rewarding in general. A number of previously non-Epic items are now Epic quality, and in many cases, stats have been added or increased.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
