August 20th Hotfixes

Published by Proximity on

Blizzard has posted hotfixes for today which includes Darkmoon Deck tuning: the Caster and Tank decks were buffed, while the Agility/Strength deck was nerfed.

Also of note, Legion Assaults have returned and the pesky Enforcers from Freehold no longer drop threat of the tank!

Here you’ll find a list of hotfixes that address various issues related to World of Warcraft: Battle For Azeroth. Some of the hotfixes below take effect the moment they were implemented, while others may require scheduled realm restarts to go into effect. Please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch update. This list will be updated as additional hotfixes are applied.Hotfixes
