Blizzard hotfixed Khor, Hammer of the Guardian to item level 120 yesterday. The mace previously had stats and a higher item level. Players who obtained it found that their primary weapon had been nerfed after the hotfix. Fortunately, Blizzard is reverting the original hotfix and you will find the item restored to its original glory!
I received a 360 mace from a new raid boss: 2 hours after the new raid released.
24 hours later. this was nerfed to item level 130, while i was still wearing it.
it literally takes WEEKS of grinding to get a good weapon on your ridiculous game. then when players finally earn one, disenchant their old gear. The item gets nerfed.
The lack of common sense and respect for players in this situation is appalling to say the least
This was a brand new raid that drops BASE LEVEL 355+ gear.
And they nerfed a weapon down to 130 item level because
“our mistake it should’ve never been there”
ask yourself. with LFR, Normal, heroic, and mythic transmog versions of this weapon. Why would we as players, want a 5th transmog version added to the loot table. at only 1/3 the item level?
The bind on equip greens from this same raid drop at 266 item level,
TWICE the level of this mace.
YES, in legion there were transmog weapons available. BECAUSE there were free ARTIFACT WEAPONS BIS.
There is no such thing here.
This was (and still is) a bug, but our initial response to discovering the issue had unfair consequences for players who had innocently earned and equipped what appeared to be a great weapon. We’re going to revert the change and proceed with a new fix that only lowers the item level of new drops.
Once this fix is live, anyone who had earned the weapon before our original hotfix should find that it has been restored to its original glory. If you’ve since deleted the weapon after it changed, you can restore it via our CS tools or contact CS directly for assistance.
