Whether you'll be pleased or disappointed by today's PvP hotfixes -- which Nethaera says are coming soon -- likely depends on which class you play. Balance druids, discipline priests, retribution paladins, enhancement shaman, and warriors are all getting tweaks (or, as some might say, nerfs). The exact changes are below.

Patch 6.0.3 hotfixes for December 10


Citizens of Dalaran! Re-enable your sound and listen! Rhonin has finally lost his yelling voice after the millionth hero saved the world from certain destruction. Cold logic deemed your ears not worth saving. Cold logic, however, does not account for the power of hotfixes!
  • Rhonin, Leader of the Kirin Tor, should now be reciting their spoken lines to characters within a much smaller radius in the streets of the city of Dalaran.
  • Players defeating the final boss that pushes their invasion score to over 1000 should now correctly be able to receive credit for obtaining a gold rating.
  • The world bosses Drov the Ruiner and Tarlna the Ageless in Gorgrond now share a single loot eligibility lockout.
  • Both Drov the Ruiner and Tarlna the Ageless should no longer be available at the same time.
  • Raid buffs to Mastery no longer counts for food that provides a well fed buff to the highest secondary stat.
Check after the break for the rest of today's hotfixes.

Hotfixes for December 3

Another significant round of hotfixes have gone live for Warlords of Draenor. This bunch includes numerous fixes to garrisons, classes, and the newly released Highmaul and world bosses. Some highlights include:
  • Iron Horde Invasion: Made a number of adjustments to make Gold Victory more obtainable.
  • Borrok the Devourer should now drop a Devourer's Gutstone that allows more than one player to loot it.
  • Tarlna the Ageless' Genesis ability now summons a maximum of 15 Giant Lashers and has a increased duration of 12 seconds (up from 6 seconds).
It's worth noting that though there has not been concrete confirmation, there's speculation that Tarlna the Ageless summoning far too many lashers contributed to server instability Tuesday evening.

Patch 6.0.2 Hotfixes for December 2


A new round of hot fixes is out for WoD, including some major changes to key garrison buildings (or at least key as in buildings that are wanted). Highlights include:
  • Menagerie Level 3: Reduced the number of pet battle wins needed for the Draenic Pet Battler achievement from 500 to 150.
  • Conquest Garrison Missions have been disabled temporarily from the pool of available missions for players that are eligible to receive them.

  • Conquest Points have been converted into Honor Points before the start of the season.
  • Level-up items created by professions no longer use reagents that required a daily cooldown to create and are no longer soulbound. To compensate for this change, basic reagent requirements have been increased and vendor buyback price for those items have been reduced now that they're less rare.

Numerous Inscription hotfixes now live

The latest round of Warlords of Draenor hotfixes is directed at solving a number of issues with Inscription. The following glyphs were unable to be crafted and have now been added to vendors: The glyphs are currently unique and soulbound -- you cannot buy them en masse to list on the auction house. Glyph of Frostbrand Weapon does not currently have an associated item and could not be added to vendors. For now, shaman will learn the spell automatically instead. If you're a shaman and have not automatically learned the spell, relogging should fix it. Glyph of Blackout Kick, a glyph monks have been digging to find, is not currently in the game at all -- monks will need to wait until the next minor patch to acquire it.

In addition, ink traders -- which were briefly nonfunctional -- should now be fixed.

Dungeon Hotfixes, Need before Greed now default

When Warlords of Draenor launched, it brought with it a new loot system - the personal loot of Raid Finder was now in place for dungeons. There were advantages and disadvantages to this - one of the advantages was that loot didn't drop that no one wanted, for example. But a lot of players found it a less than compelling system.

And apparently their voices have been heard, because it's back, baby. Rygarius posted a host of dungeon and raid hotfixes, including but not limited to the return of Need before Greed as the default loot system in dungeons. What else is happening?
  • Completing your first Heroic Warlords dungeon nets you a reward of 50 Garrison Resources.
  • The return of the Call to Arms feature for in-demand roles like tanks and healers.
  • You will now once again be able to queue for dungeons from the Ashram cities of Stormshield and Warspear.
What do you think of these changes?
