World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth Devs Deploy Another Huge Hotfix

The World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth pre-patch went live live last week with tons of new content for fans of the MMORPG to enjoy. Unfortunately, it was nothing short of a complete hot mess. From game-breaking bugs, to balding, the arrival of the upcoming expansion's pre-party was met with a resounding "fail." Luckily, the team at Blizzard quickly began work to rectify this, even hosting a livestream to talk to fans. Good guy Blizzard has since deployed several hot fixed to tackle all of those achievement, quests, and other miscellaneous bugs riddled throughout the online game.

In the most recent forum post from Blizzard, the team gave a brief overview of the huge hotfix now deployed, "Here you'll find a list of hotfixes that address various issues related to World of Warcraft: Battle For Azeroth. Some of the hotfixes below take effect the moment they were implemented, while others may require scheduled realm restarts to go into effect. Please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch update. This list will be updated as additional hotfixes are applied."
