Latest WoW hotfixes address more PVP tuning changes

A small batch of hotfixes for patch 7.2.5 hit the servers today, mostly implementing more PVP tuning changes for Druids, Monks, Paladins, Priests, and Shaman. In addition, it appears Atonement was increasing damage buffs on pets more than was actually intended — that’s been adjusted. And for players deep into Mythic Tomb of Sargeras, the Fallen Avatar encounter has been tweaked. On Mythic, only five Shadowy Blades will spawn, instead of seven. Please note that the majority of these hotfixes come into play with realm restarts in each region — they aren’t automatically implemented.
