Blizzard has released a new World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth hotfix for patch 8.1.5 that reduces the difficulty of the Jaina Proudmore encounter in the Battle of Dazar’alor raid.
The latest hotfix reduces Jaina’s health by 5% on all difficulties. On mythic difficulty, the health of her Tide Elemental has also been reduced by 35%, and Jaina’s Chilling Touch Damage has been nerfed by 10%.
In addition to the Jaina encounter nerfs, the hotfix also fixes several visual issues and aims to improve realm performance.
We’ve included the release notes for this new hotfix down below:
