In the night of November 17, 2021, the developers of WoW and WoW Classic put a few hotfixes on the servers that definitely carry weight. We already reported that WoW's Doomwalker in Tanaris now drops the Mount Doom Hawk of the Illidari and the Doomwalker Trophy Socket toy with a 100% probability. So slapping the Doomwalker around once is enough for fancy cosmetics. But the hotfixes have brought even more.

"Nerf" for rogues.

There were two bug fixes with rune carving powers that certainly gave some rogue or another an advantage. First, Deadly Shadows has been problem fixed so that it will no longer remain active once the rogue has discarded the Legendary. Secondly, Invigorating Shadow Dust excessively reduced the cooldown of The Dread Blades. Both bugs are now no longer found in the game, the WoW makers promise.

Necklaces for High Mountain Tauren Ladies

One last bit of good news before we get to the bumbling patch notes: Female High Mountain Tauren can now customize their necklaces at the barber. If this is still not possible when you visit the barber, create a new character to activate the necklace customization. Below are the patch notes (here in the original).
