Are you also surprised how many bugs have landed in the classic World of Warcraft with the pre-patch of Burning Crusade Classic? From missing NPCs in the Alterac Valley to the absurdly high honor earnings on the first day to suddenly acting unfamiliar Naxx bosses or duplicate world buffs, there were a lot.

The good news is that the developers are still working on getting the client up to speed before the launch of the TBC expansion. Last night there were again a number of hotfixes to get one step closer to this goal. Most importantly, dodge scoring now correctly increases players' dodge chance again. There have also been minor bug fixes for Priests and Rogues, another bug fix for Naxxramas, and you can now learn the recipe for Dark Leather Boots from the Leatherworking trainers again. Oh, and there shouldn't be any problems with the Call to Weapons daily either.

Below you can read the official English patch notes. As soon as Blizzard has released the German patch notes, we'll update this post. 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.
