Blizzard has had a lot on their plate this year, but they aren’t letting it slow them down from implementing needed changes to their existing titles. They’re constantly adding plenty of hotfixes and patches to make sure that their flagship title World of Warcraft stays running smoothly.

Here’s a quick rundown of the handful of changes they’ve added in the latest Hotfix patch:

The Return to Karazhan instance has had a recent bug fixed wherein players weren’t zoning in at the entrance to the instance. Now, players should properly zone into the dungeon.

Azeroth’s Radiance now restores Sanity properly to players under the effects of an Immunity spell on all difficulties, helping to make sure no one wipes their Mythic N’Zoth attempt due to a simple glitch. A minor glitch in Horrific Visions has been fixed as well where more than two Torn Pages of “Fear and Flesh” could drop in a Horrific Vision.

Moving to items and rewards, there’s been a fix to Ashjra’kamas, Shroud of Resolve’s active ability. It now will reset its cooldown when a boss encounter ends. There’s also been a bug fix that stopped Void Ritual from scaling down properly during a Timewalking dungeon. The Heart of Azeroth saw a fix to an issue that prevented the correct visual effects of Worldvein Resonance Rank 4 from displaying.

In the Player vs. Player realm, Blizzard fixed an issue that was allowing characters to remain as a Servant of N’Zoth while not in War Mode. The Alliance-exclusive mount, Vicious White Warsaber, now correctly will change to Vicious White Bonesteed when used by a Horde character.

Those are all of the changes available in this patch of Hotfixes! Another fix worth mentioning is that February 19th saw a single PvP fix as well, which resolved an issue preventing characters from gaining progress towards earning the Season 4 seasonal mount and Vicious Saddles.

In terms of Classic, there are no changes coming in this patch, or the previous hotfix patch. The last patch was three days ago to fix an issue that was popping up with the real Mob Health add-on. It seems that, given that Classic is inherently less complicated than BfA, which has about 15 years more of content in it than Classic, there are fewer issues that need fixing.

Either way, we’ll likely see another handful of hotfix patches before too much longer. Blizzard pushes them out nearly constantly, with each week often giving us multiple patches, so keep your eyes out for the next fix!
