Argus bugs, PVP balancing, and more in latest WoW hotfixes

The latest WoW hotfixes honed in on PVP balancing as well as other odds and ends in the bug department, especially concerning the new chapters in the Argus patch 7.3 story. For PVP, all classes had their chance to dodge and parry increased in PVP situations. Previously it was a reduced chance of 20%, which has been increased to 30%. Also, if anyone found stealth a little wonky in the Dalaran Sewers, stealth effects won’t be removed anymore when Dalaran Sewers starts.

As for Argus, anyone questing around today will have noticed some odd bugs. There was a brief time this morning when some of the quests actually removed Army of the Light reputation. This was fixed within the hour of the initial reports but has been included in the notes for posterity. If you did the Lightforged Warframe quests, you probably got ported back to the base instead of leaving the tower by yourself, which caused many people to have to hoof it back over there to prompt the mini-cinematic. This has also been fixed and will now only port you there after the questline ends.

Other bugs as well as PVP balancing for some classes also made it into the hotfixes. Check out the full notes below.
