Bug fixes abound in the latest round of WoW hotfixes

It’s all about bug fixes in the latest WoW hotfixes. Tonight’s round addresses a number of annoyances that cropped up after patch 7.1.5 went live, like the unintended nerf to Druid Travel Form which dropped it down to 189% speed. (However, we don’t have an exact statistic on the speed of Travel Form when the Druid is shot out of a cannon.) Also notable — at least for PVPing Rogues — is that Shroud of Concealment is no longer usable in Arenas or Rated Battlegrounds. Goodbye, stealth for all.
