Pre-release patch 9.x for the upcoming World of Warcraft Shadowlands expansion is live, and the next batch of bug fixes and tweaks have been added today in the form of hotfixes.
Below you can read the official patch notes. Hotfixes are updates that are made server-side without the need to download new data. Some of the changes listed below will take effect as soon as Blizzard implements them, while others will only take effect after an announced realm restart. Please note that some issues cannot be fixed without a client-side patch. The full patch notes for Pre-Patch 9.x can be found in this article. Blizzard has published the list of currently known issues here.
