01/24/2023 at 10:00 am by Philipp Sattler – No ID without a series of nerfs for the Mythic Plus dungeons in WoW: Dragonflight. The current hotfixes are primarily aimed at the Halls of Valor, but the attack of the Nokhud is also made easier.
The WoW developers never tire of installing new hotfixes almost every day to improve the balancing within the game. Adjustments to the classes alternate with changes to raids and dungeons. The raid in Dragonflight had to endure relatively few changes.
The dungeons, on the other hand, were all the more the target of adjustments. This was mainly due to the catastrophic balancing with which the dungeons started the first season of the expansion. It wasn’t necessarily the difficulty itself that was the problem, but the differences in difficulty. While dungeons like Shadowmoon Burial Grounds or Court of Stars have been several tiers easier than others since release, others have been significantly harder than average.
So the developers had to invest a lot of work and hand out tons of nerfs so that the dungeons are roughly the same difficulty. But you are still not satisfied, because further adjustments have been announced again and some of them have already been implemented.

More dungeon nerfs via hotfix of January 24, 2023
The current round of hotfixes is primarily aimed at the Halls of Valor. Here the bosses and trash mobs get a good chunk of their life points taken away. The aim here should be above all to make the rather tight timer a little easier. But the bosses also have to accept classic nerfs. In addition, the attack of the Nokhud is in focus. There are also some nerfs here. There was also a small adjustment in the Algeth’ar Academy to prevent one of the exploit strategies.
Here are the full hotfixes related to the January 24, 2023 dungeons:
