Another day of World Firsts and Hotfixes:
Blizzard is pulling out all the stops to fix the myriad of bugs with the "Love is in the Air" festival. It seems like we get a patch per day fixing this or that involving this world event.
Those familiar with the Sindragosa encounter will remember that Unchained Magic is the debuff cast by Sindragosa that causes spell casting to stack a 'bomb' effect on the player. It is unknown as of yet exactly how this change will manifest, but the wording indicates that perhaps the debuff will be applied on a more strict timer than it is now.
Paragon continued their hot streak, taking down the third Icecrown Citadel wing boss, Professor Putricide, on 25 Heroic.
Now only the Lich King remains to be conquered. But that may be no easy feat. According to a Russian guild that had been attempting the Lich King earlier in the week, Blizzard implemented a stealth buff to the Lich King's hitpoints, boosting them from around 22 million to 29 million on 10 player heroic difficulty.
Heroic Lich King on 25 player difficulty now has an incredible 103 million hit points, ensuring that this will go down as one of the most epic fights in World of Warcraft history.
