Latest WoW hotfixes address Cathedral of Eternal Night and more

The most recent hotfixes include some mild class fixes, changes for PvP, and some adjustments to dungeons. The big changes were all to Cathedral of Eternal Night, which saw some significant nerfs overall. Agronox saw the most adjustment, and if you’ve been having a hard time in the Cathedral, now seems like a good time to head back in there.

All the changes are below for your perusal.
