World of Warcraft hotfixes for February 27

A new set of hotfixes have gone out this evening, and a new set of notes have been released. These hotfixes are in addition to the new patch build that was released earlier today, and include several bug fixes and garrison adjustments as well as a few tweaks to old dungeons and a few items. Hunters in particular may want to take note — Focusing Shot now has a facing requirement.
