    • Improved the visibility on Whisper in the Dark’s Umbral Torrent to better match its area of effect.
    • Echo of Neltharion
      • The Normal and Heroic difficulty encounter should no longer respawn if players have previously cleared the encounter and skip defeating Magmorax.
  • Dawn of the Infinite
    • Fixed an issue that could cause some enemies’ damage and heal absorb effects to be much weaker than intended.
      • Developers’ note: An issue was recently introduced that caused certain absorb effects in Dawn of the Infinite to be weaker than expected. This change restores these values to roughly what they were just before the patch. We don’t anticipate any significant issues with dungeon difficulty as a result, but we’ll keep a close eye on it.
