Latest hotfixes introduce Argus Waystone changes and more

A new batch of hotfixes has been released right on time for the arrival of the Netherlight Crucible and the last part of the Argus campaign. Speaking of the Crucible, these hotfixes include the class tuning changes that were announced earlier this week. In addition, the Argus Waystone changes have been implemented, removing the Waystones as currency and increasing the cap on Veiled Argunite. And if your guild is still working on Tomb of Sargeras, there are some hotfixes in testing that will affect various encounters.

Additionally, the yetis of Feralas should once again have facial hair. Look, I’m just as mystified as you guys about that one. Read on for the full list of hotfixes.

Player versus Player
