Trinket Hotfixes

Quote from: Blizzard
Hello everyone- There have been several recent hotfixes to the stats on trinkets in Draenor, and we wanted to take some time to provide an update on these.

At launch, we found some issues that led to many Draenor trinkets being incorrectly budgeted (predominantly overbudget, though some were underbudget as well). We quickly applied one hotfix to attempt to resolve this issue, but there are still some issues remaining. That said, despite the overbudget, we won’t be nerfing any existing trinkets. So, have no fear of purchasing any of these trinkets and only to have them end up nerfed.

Last night, we applied another hotfix which increased the stats on many epic trinkets in order to reach a balanced budget on these trinkets and ensure a proper trinket progression path through the Raid tier. This change affects world-drop BoE epic trinkets, Inscription-crafted epic trinkets, Highmaul trinkets, and Blackrock Foundry trinkets.

With the opening of Highmaul today we also wanted to wish you good luck!

Highmaul Raid Schedule

Quote from: Blizzard
As with raids in Mists of Pandaria, we’re staggering the unlock of difficulties for the first raid in the expansion. As with those prior staggered unlocks, our goal here is to let you have fun playing, leveling, and to have time to explore and prepare yourself and your raid group before jumping into this first raid. We’ll share information on the unlock schedule for Blackrock Foundry in the future, but are currently expecting it to unlock approximately 8 weeks after Highmaul.
