WoW Hotfixes: Mage tower nerfs for Kruul, Xylem and Corrupted Risen

The time-walking version of the Mage Tower, which has now opened in WoW Patch 9.1.5, presents such a crunchy challenge - which some WoW players fail to pass. Some people find this good, others meh. That's why the WoW developers have now intervened with a first wave of nerf hotfixes on the WoW servers. In the night of December 11, 2021, a few very specific adjustments were made to the realms, which should make fights against Kruul, Xylem and Corrupted Risen a bit more feasible. You can find the details below.

A note: Either to keep you busy over the holidays or to give you more time to master the Mage Tower challenges already, the WoW devs have extended the duration of the Mage Tower time hike. The Mage Tower in its current version will now close with the first January maintenance, so (most likely) on January 5, 2022. Here are the patch notes for you now!
