Patch 4.1 hotfixes for May 11
While everyone's up to their ears in the patch 4.2 PTR testing content, today we've got some hotfixes for the live game here in patch 4.1. Today's hotfix post, courtesy of Zarhym on the official WoW blog, covers a variety of small changes, mostly addressing system errors and bugs.
  • Players using the Mobile Guild Chat app should no longer get error messages stating that they aren't in a guild.
  • Mail that's sent from the auction house should no longer display incorrect information about the transaction; this includes transactions from the Mobile Auction House as well.
  • Players should no longer get stuck or crash while in a battleground or arena queue.
Follow after the break for the full list of hotfixes.
