World of Warcraft hotfixes for February 26

World of Warcraft hotfixes

A new batch of hotfixes have been released for patch 6.1 today, including a whole host of adjustments for nearly every class, bug fixes, achievements adjustments and much more. Please note that some of the hotfixes do require a realm restart before they take effect — the majority, however, should be implemented already.
