Blizzard released new hotfix updates to “World of Warcraft” Patch 6.2.2a “Fury of Hellfire” on Monday. This includes fixing a few issues with the Rescue Operation achievement, Hellfire Citadel’s Archimonde and objective bonuses in mercenary mode.

Check out the “World of Warcraft” hotfixes below. Blizzard also mentioned that most of the updates will be made automatically, while some may require a realm restart before they go into effect.

Creatures And NPCs

Tanaan Jungle: Remnant of the Blood Moon: To reduce the number of Drained Blood Crystals needed to start the encounter, the health of the Blood Moon has been reduced to 1000 (down from 10,000).

Raids And Dungeons

Hellfire Citadel: Archimonde: The duration of Nether Corruption has been reduced to 5 seconds so it doesn't persist across multiple portal phases on Raid Finder difficulty.

Mercenary Mode

Players should no longer receive a bonus objective to kill a tower guardian for the wrong faction, Rylai Crestfall (Alliance) or Jeron Emberfall (Horde) while fighting as a mercenary.


Rescue Operation: Fixed an issue where players were unable to free captured prisoners.

Bug Fixes

Fixed an issue that could prevent Monks from being able to use Zen Flight in areas where they were able to use other flying mounts.

Fixed an issue where the Swarming Insects debuff that prevents flight in The Feeding Pits in Townlong Steppes could persist incorrectly after leaving the area. [Requires a realm restart]

Fixed an issue that could cause characters to receive loot for the wrong class in Personal Loot mode on Mythic difficulty.
