Last night saw the biggest hotfix package for World of Warcraft since the end of July. For one, the designers added death gates in the Sanctum of Domination to help you traverse the raid instance. Secondly, they had prepared a whole bunch of bug fixes, for various classes, for raid boss Sylvanas Windrunner, for the quest "Prisoner of Morningrock

" and more.

Below you can read the official English patch notes. As soon as Blizzard has released the German patch notes, we will update this post. Hotfixes are updates 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, whereas others will only take effect after an announced realm restart. Please note that some issues cannot be fixed without a client-side patch.
