Recent In-Game Fixes – 4/16/09

Blizzard has hotfixed a few issues in Patch 3.1—some which might be considered nerfs by some, and a just action for others. Some could even be considered game breaking such as players killing Argent Tournament Quest NPCs.  This has been fixed.  Pets can now attack Kologarn, trash mobs before XT-002 Deconstructor are easier to kill after the first time (good, good), Blood Boil no longer penetrate Ice Block or Divine Shield (Some people still doing Black Temple?)  Hunter may not like to know now that their mana regeneration will be reduced a tadbit with the hotfix on Aspect of the Hawk. The Glyph of Envenom has been removed from the game. PvP Players … be ready to get disarmed 100% of the time during Psychic Horror.  It can no longer be dodged. There are other hotfixes performed a couple days ago. Check them out.
