Latest WoW hotfixes improve emissary quest rewards

Today’s list of hotfixes is a short one, but includes an upgrade to emissary quest rewards that everyone will appreciate. Emissary rewards have been buffed to match other World Quest rewards. Hooray for buffs!

Also on the list is a fix for Shadow Priests’ Surrender the Madness in Mythic+ dungeons. Using it was giving groups a 5 second time penalty, and that five seconds can add up over the course of a dungeon — and really hurt your attempts to beat the timer. As Mitch says, thank the Old Gods.
