The first hotfixes for the new patch are in! A lot of PvP stuff as well as M+ questing issues, among many smaller fixes.
New patch, new problems that need to be fixed, but Blizz was on the case very quickly as we already have the first hotfixes of 7.1! A lot of fixes, predominately in the PvP area, with the biggest one being Kara attunement and the weekly bonus event being completable in M+ dungeons.
Completing a dungeon on any Mythic Keystone difficulty will now count towards progress on the weekly Bonus Event quest, "Emissary of War". Classes
Luffa Wrappings should once again function correctly for non-Feral Druids. Prowl should once again have the correct stealth effectiveness. Mass Entanglement should now reliably chain to nearby targets. Paladin
(Retribution) Fixed a bug preventing the Sword of Light passive from being fully calculated into baseline damage. Shaman
(Restoration) Lava Burst should correctly deal a critical strike against targets with Flame Shock, at level 20 or higher. Warrior
(Arms) Fixed a bug preventing the Seasoned Soldier passive from being fully calculated into baseline damage. Dungeons and Raids
Quest Items related to Karazhan attunement now drop in Mythic Keystone dungeons in addition to Mythic difficulty dungeons. Game Client
(Work in progress) Sheathing and unsheathing a weapon should no longer cause the game to crash. PvP
Warden Towers temporarily rewarded 150 Honor. They have been convinced to once again reward 300 Honor. Honor rewards from Tol Barad have been reduced by 50%. Class Adjustments Relentless reduces crowd control duration by 20% (was 25%). Developers’ Notes: We feel Relentless is over-represented in a lot of situations, so we’re slightly reducing its effect. Demon Hunter Fixed a bug that was preventing Imprison modified by Detainment from being removed by Divine Shield and Ice Block. Fury of the Illidari no longer causes reduced damage in PvP. Mage (Fire) Stamina reduced by 10% in PvP. (Frost) Stamina reduced by 10% in PvP Developers’ Notes: Fire and Frost Mages have felt a bit too tanky. (Frost) Deep Shatter increases the damage of Frostbolt by 150% (was 200%). Monk (Mistweaver) Surge of Mist now causes Enveloping Mist to incur an 8 second cooldown (was 6 seconds). Developers’ Notes: Mistweavers Monks have often relied on Soothing Mist to do most of their healing. Now, when choosing Surge of Mist, you may have to cast another healing spell during the Enveloping Mists cooldown. (Mistweaver) Counteract magic increases the healing of Renewing Mist by 125% (was 150%). Developers’ Notes: Counteract Magic has felt a bit too strong against damage-over-time compositions. Paladin Avenging Crusader now properly increases the cooldown recovery rate of Judgment and Crusader Strike. Avenging Crusader no longer increases the cooldown recovery rate of Tyr's Deliverance. Priest (Discipline) Searing Light increases the damage of Smite by 15%, down from 30%. Developers’ Notes: The Discipline Priest is intended to be an offensive healer, but we feel they were over-performing in 2v2 Arena. Rogue Agility reduced by 10% in PvP. Stamina reduced by 5% in PvP. Developers’ Notes: Rogues are intended to be strong, yet vulnerable to focused-fire. We feel they have too much survivability while dealing too much damage with both utility and survivability, so we’re toning them down. (Assassination) System Shock duration reduced to 2 seconds (was 4 seconds). (Subtlety) Stamina reduced by 5% in PvP. (Assassination, Outlaw) Stamina reduced by 15% in PvP. Shaman (Enhancement) Agility reduced by 10%. Warlock (Demonology) Doom, Doubled now increases the damage of Doom by 33% in PvP situations. (Demonology) Grimoire of Synergy increases the Warlock's and Pet's damage by 30% in PvP situations. (Demonology) Implosion damage reduced by 20% in PvP situations. Warrior Bladestorm now deals full damage in PvP situations. Developers’ Notes: Bladestorm is intended to be a strong damage cooldown for the Arms Warrior. In Legion Beta testing, Arms Warriors felt too strong, so we reduced the damage Bladestorm did in PvP. We feel we’re back to a place where returning it to full damage makes sense. Execute now deals 15% more damage in PvP situations. Developers’ Notes: Execute is designed to be a signature strength of the Warrior, and should always be the right choice on targets within Execute range in PvP. We’ve found that there are some situations where that wasn’t true, so we’re increasing the damage of Execute to make it always the right choice. Quests
Players should no longer fail to get credit for completing world boss World Quests. Players with a full inventory should now be able to complete “Edict of the God-King” and accept “Unwanted Evidence” after defeating God-King Skovald in Halls of Valor. The quest drops for “Uncovering Orders” should now come from the final boss in each of the three named dungeons, Assault on Violet Hold, Black Rook Hold, and Vault of the Wardens. World
Bloodgazer Falcosaurs should now respawn more quickly. Previous Hotfixes.

See what your friends are up to (and queued for) and join them more easily!
It seems we're getting even more tools to connect to each other! After the recent addition of Blizzard Voice now 7.1 brings with it another way to check out what your friends are doing and join them!
Now, while this is a very handy tool and will certainly make life easier (and more social!) for a lot of people, it seems it only emphasizes the need for an "appear offline" or "private" option in the game, as some players don't feel like sharing absolutely everything with their Battle.net friends. The latest status on that was that the feature is on the backburner, and that was two years ago.
We’re making it even easier to find your friends and join them on their adventures through Azeroth with the addition of a Quick Join option in patch 7.1: Return to Karazahn.
You’ll be able to quickly and easily see friends who have queued for select eligible content within your Social tab (o) in the “Quick Join” tab. You’ll also be able to recommend others by using /invite to join the group even if they aren’t already friends with the group leader. Additionally, friends won’t need to leave their queue to add you and will receive a join request that they can accept or deny for each additional member.
What content queues will you be able to join your friends for?
Dungeon Finder Raid Finder Premade Group Listings (once the friend has joined the group) Non-rated Battlegrounds Non-rated Arenas World PvP such as Ashran So whether it’s your guildmate, your Battle.net friend, or your Real ID friend, you’ll be able to find each other and take part in a variety of game aspects without the need to ask the age old questions of– “What are you doing?” “Any room in your group?” “Can my other friend join?” You’ll just be able to see all of your friends, see what they’re up to, and ask to join with just a couple of clicks. It’s so easy, a drogbar can do it!
