World of Warcraft Recent HotFix Updates For Portal Disruptors

Wow, Blizzard, World Of Warcraft, Legion

New HotFix balances out a few problems making the Nether Portal Disruptors not so demanding of attention

As of April 17th, Wow’s new hotfixes implemented some changes for Portal Disruptors. While some hotfixes may be implemented immediately, some will have scheduled realm restarts. On Broken Shore, enemies near the by Nether Portal Disruptors have been changed. Enemies will now drop a more significant amount of Legionfall War Supplies and Dauntless tokens, but they will no longer drop Netherchunks or Tier 1 Sentinax beacons. The patch notes state give the reason behind the change.

We want to make sure that Nether Portal Disruptors and the enemies they attract are lucrative and exciting without overshadowing other options so that players feel inclined to focus only on the Nether Disruptor for Broken Shore play. This should now be a solid extra to add to your activities when it’s available, rather than something to wait around for.
