Update from 16:56:
Blizzard has published the German patch notes of the January 22 hotfixes. We have updated the message accordingly.

Original message:
You know it: new day, new hotfixes for World of Warcraft (buy now 14,99 € ). This time, the bug fixes from the developers revolve around a handful of instances (including Castle Nathria), the priest, the Shadowlands character boost on the hunter and an achievement"I don't know what I was expecting".

Below you can read the official English patch notes. As soon as Blizzard has published the German patch notes, we will update this message. Hotfixes are updates that are applied server-side without the need to download new data. Some of the changes listed below will take effect as soon as Blizzard implements them, whereas others will only take effect after an announced realm restart. Please note that some issues cannot be fixed without a client-side patch.
