Latest WoW patch 7.2 hotfixes focus on class bugs

It’s no surprise that a new patch comes with plenty of hotfixes as Blizzard works to fix issues that only became obvious when the whole playerbase hit the servers. Chances are, we’ll see a few weeks of frequent hotfixes until the dust around patch 7.2 has settled.

The latest hotfixes speed up Broken Shore progression and fix some raid and dungeon issues, but the focus is on classes. While there are some bug fixes, there are also some balance changes here, so you’ll want to take a look. See the full notes below.
