Karazhan nerfs and a Warglaive fix in latest WoW hotfixes

Today’s WoW hotfixes bring some nerfs to the rather tough upper Karazhan, but the more interesting part of these patch notes — at least to Demon Hunters — is a tweak to the I’ll Hold These For You Until You Get Out Achievement. This achievement, awarded to anyone who finished the Black Temple Timewalking raid and previously looted both of the Warglaives of Azzinoth, granted a Demon Hunter warglaive transmog option.

That’s awesome news for Demon Hunters who wanted to wield the most iconic warglaives in the Warcraft universe, right? Well… kind of. Pre-hotfix, the transmog glaives had an odd graphic, where the glaives sheathed in the opposite direction of the  actual glaive model. But fortunately for unhappy Demon Hunters, this is now fixed: no one will be able to tell your warglaives from the real thing. (Though of course now players who liked the backwards sheathed glaives are unhappy because the graphic is fixed. There’s no pleasing everyone.)

Check out the full hotfix notes below.
