With the release of the latest World of Warcraft Extension Battle for Azeroth unfortunately there were a number of small bugs. A quick hotfix now fixes many of these problems and also changes some classes.

So Frost Death Knights can look forward to 3% more damage to all abilities. There is also 3% more skill damage for animal mastery and marksmanship hunters. Holy priests even get 8% more damage.

There were also a number of adjustments in PvP.

You can find the complete patch notes below:
