World of Warcraft - Hotfix from 17.8.

World of Warcraft - Battle for Azeroth Logo

The newest World of Warcraft Update reduces the requirements for the Heart of Azeroth and fixes bugs with flight points.

Especially the flight route problems were annoying, sometimes flight points unlocked by quest could not be selected. So the poor World of Warcraft heroes sometimes had an arduous walk to get to their next quest destination.

The PvP players among you who are waiting for the opening of the first Battle for Azeroth season will at least get honor for the PvP world quests.

You can find the complete German patch notes for the hotfix below:
