A brand new patch means a brand new list of hotfixes. The first round of hotfixes for patch 4.1 have arrived courtesy of Zaryhm on the official Warcraft blog. These first few hotfixes address a few class bugs, as well as a couple of tweaks to Zul'Gurub and Zul'Aman, including the following:
  • In Zul'Aman, the Plucked debuff applied during the Akil'zon encounter should no longer persist after he's killed.
  • In Zul'Gurub, Zanzil's cauldrons will remain active once he's been defeated, allowing the party to survive the Zanzil's Graveyard Gas phase.
  • Players shouldn't be getting stuck on the retrieving character list or be unable to enter instances when the Optimize Network for Speed option is disabled anymore.
Follow after the break for the full list of hotfixes.
