Latest Legion 7.1 hotfixes address some Helya issues

A new round of Legion hotfixes has been released just before the holiday weekend, with a few targeted fixes to issues with Helya in the Trial of Valor. There are also a few class and PVP tweaks, but let’s talk about the real point of interest here: The Soul Inhaler and Gin-Ji Knife Set toys may no longer be used in raid instances. Come on now, Blizzard — I spent many, many days all the way back in Siege of Orgrimmar merrily dicing my fellow raid team into bits and pieces after a wipe. Why on earth is this suddenly forbidden? It’s a mystery. Check out the full list of hotfixes below.
