Blizzard has had a busy few days with the launch of the Sanctum of Domination raid and Season 2 of Shadowlands, Posting lengthy patch notes for July 6th, followed by more today, as we see further bug fixes in the new raid Sanctum of Domination, PvP talent fixes, and an Improvement to Korthia rares.
- Fixed an issue where defeating the bosses on Floor 5 were not providing credit for Touring Torghast.
- Developers note: Unfortunately, this fix is not retroactive and you may have to run the Layer again to receive credit if it is the highest Layer you can complete. However, finishing any higher Layers will also complete the achievement criteria for the Layers below them, so there’s no need to enter the lower Layers again if you choose not to do so.
- Death Knight
- Fixed an issue that could cause Spellwarden (PvP Talent) to stop working after leaving battlegrounds and arenas.
- Arcanosphere (PvP Talent) will no longer cast if the Mage is interrupted while channeling it.
- Bonds of Fel (Destruction PvP Talent) and Shadow Rift (PvP Talent) can no longer be prevented by Spell Reflection or Grounding Totem.
- Night Fae
- Field of Blossoms duration now matches its tooltip.
Creatures and NPCs
- Rift rares will more reliably return to the Rift if they defeat all adventurers.
- The NPCs that help you change covenants have returned in Oribos.
- Escaped Wilderling is much braver now and will no longer abandon you when you fly over the Maw.
- Popo will no longer act as a guard in War Mode and will remain focused on his task of delivering potions to his friends.
- Relic Gatherers and Relic Gorgers will now allow more people to get credit for attacking them. But beware, in War Mode the other faction might just steal your faction’s control of the mob.
- Fixed an issue where Fleshwing would sometimes become stuck in the sky.
- The Assault Supply Carriage should more reliably reset after the event completes.

Dungeons and Raids

- Soulrender Dormazain

Items and Rewards
- The Relic Fragments from the portal spawns leading up to the spawn of the Anima-Starved Devourer or the Mawsworn Exterminator have been reduced. The drops from these big bosses have been increased slightly to compensate.

- Fixed an issue that would prevent the quest to kill Mor'geth to appear.
- Locating and interacting with Huln Highmountain during “Hunting Amid Houses” will now grant quest credit.
- Fixed an issue where Heirmir would be unavailable during the quest "Hooking Over."
Tazavesh, the Veiled Market is now a valid option for scheduled Calendar events.
