The development team for WoW at Blizzard has been busy: various new hotfixes arrived on the live servers today, December 04, 2021. Among other things, the mini-patch fixes a problem with the PvP talent Thorns of the Druids. There are also a few fixes for minor bugs in the Sanctum of Domination and Burning Crusade Classic PvP.

Below you can read the official English patch notes. As soon as Blizzard has published the German patch notes, we will update this message. Hotfixes are updates that are applied server-side without the need to download new data. Some of the changes listed below will take effect as soon as Blizzard implements them, whereas others will only take effect after an announced realm restart. Please note that some issues cannot be fixed without a client-side patch.
