World of Warcraft - August 21st Hotfixes

World of Warcraft - Battle for Azeroth Logo

The World of Warcraft Hotfixes are slowly getting smaller, so there is hope that the worst Battle for Azeroth bugs have been fixed.

Today there were mainly bug fixes for the world quests and the Kronsteigan property. Some players were also affected by a bug where they met all the requirements for unlocking the new races, but were not offered the corresponding quests. This error should now be resolved.

You can find the detailed patch notes below:
