Blizzard has shared information on pet battles following community feedback for World of Warcraft.
To start, weather like mudslide and blizzard are being updated:
- Now also increases all elemental ability damage by 25%.
- Now also increases all critical damage dealt by 25%.
Toxic fumes are also being updated:
- Increases the duration of all hostile damage over time effects by 1 round.
- All pets are considered Poisoned while Toxic Fumes is active.
Percent damage reduction is also being changed in Visions of N’Zoth,
“Currently, if you’re fighting a pet like Unit 17 in Mechagon (a Boss pet that passively takes 50% less damage), and Unit 17 uses Crouch, Unit 17 becomes immune to damage because the two 50% damage reduction effects are added to each other. In Visions of N’Zoth, the plan is to cap damage reduction at -75%. Using Unit 17 as an example, while Crouch is active, it will take 75% reduced damage instead of 100% reduced damage. This will smooth out the challenge with some enemy bosses.”
