The following hotfixes are scheduled to be live this week.
Developers' notes: We've been keeping an eye on Subtlety's damage during Season 2 and have identified a few prior PvP reductions that we're going to relax to help with its overall damage throughput. With this improvement to 刺骨 combined with the existing PvP-only reduction to 夜之复仇 (Azerite Trait) and the removal of 袖剑连击 we feel Subtlety's potential 刺骨 damage will be brought into an acceptable range for PvP combat. Subtlety will continue to keep its PvP-only reductions to their stackable cooldown strength, but we also felt that it was necessary to increase throughput outside of those windows.
- 暗影打击 no longer deals reduced damage in PvP (was a 10% reduction).
- 刺骨 no longer deals reduced damage in PvP (was a 15% reduction).
- 精通：刽子手 is now reduced by 20% in PvP (was 33%).
