A week has passed since the last round of hotfixes, but a new batch has been released tonight. Tonight's round includes bug fixes, class balance changes, and more. The Garrison Campaign fixes include:
  • A Stolen Heart: Azuka Bladefury should no longer be getting stuck in evade mode for Horde characters.
  • Primal Fury: Completing the quest should now correctly award Thisalee Crow (Alliance) or Choluna (Horde) as a Follower. A fix to award the followers for players that have already completed the quest will be made at a later date.
  • Socrethar's Demise: Resolved an issue that could cause the banner used to challenge Socrethar to not work correctly.
The full list of hotfixes can be found below.
