Blizzard has been hard at work making sure that World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is kept in working order. While a great deal of bugs and glitches still exist, they’re slowly taking care of them in order of magnitude, switching their focus now and again.
Their most recent batch of hotfixes was rolled out yesterday, and takes care of a few quality of life issues as well as some bugs that were causing major headaches. The Covenants especially were given a bit of attention to handle some long-standing issues.
The only tweak for classes is being given to hunters of all specs. Hunters will now be able to feed their pets the meats that drop from animals and beasts in the Shadowlands. Given that feeding your pet provides a quick heal, this is a considerable quality of life achievement.
Night Fae received a tweak to fix a quest through the Queen’s Conservatory, “A Rare and Unusual Spirit.” This quest sends players to the Mists of Tirna Scithe dungeon, but players were finding it incompletable on Mythic+ difficulties, which has now been fixed.
The Kyrian have significantly more fixes, especially in regards to quests. Players should now be able to complete the Path of Ascension: Nuuminuuru and Aerial Reconnaissance quests without as many bugs stopping them from doing so.
Sanguine, Quaking, Fortified are this week’s affixes and the reason it is a push week is pretty simple — there are limited amounts of time losses in dungeons if played well. We go over the best and worst Mythic+ dungeons to complete this week! https://t.co/rQAbnL3IiG pic.twitter.com/CTFlFlUIqK

Blizzard also fixed an issue causing players to not receive their Sundancer mount after finishing the event to obtain it. The Compassion, Blade of Humility quest has been adjusted to have more enemies available to complete it easier as well.
Down towards the Venthyr, the preferences for guests in the Guest List will be displayed properly, even for guests that haven’t yet been discovered. This is expected to make it faster and easier to build an effective guest list for the Ember Court.
Grandmaster Vole and Choofa will no longer appear on the guest list if you haven’t earned the reputation needed to unlock them. However, this does not remove them from existing Guest Lists, though players can revoke their invitations to remove them.
A variety of other fixes have appeared as well, though only one towards dungeons and raids. Margrave Stradama in the Plaguefall dungeon can no longer have her Plague Rot ability interrupted, which might provide a bit more difficulty for players.
As the weeks progress, Blizzard will undoubtedly come out with more and more hotfixes. The weekly reset this Tuesday is bringing a great number of changes to class balance as well, so keep your eyes open for the upcoming changes!
