We have the trifecta of hotfixes in three days, with today's bringing even more class tweaks, the cap for gold transfers upped to 1 million gold, enemy HP significantly reduced in EN, ToV, Nighthold and ToS, as well as the now standard quest, profession and dungeon bug fixes.
July 20 (source)
Monk The Earth and Fire clone from Storm, Earth, and Fire should correctly mimic Rushing Jade Wind, regardless of the player’s target. Paladin Protection Fixed a bug preventing the Light’s Vanguard Battleplate 4-piece bonus from activating and deactivating as intended. Fixed an issue where Consecration occasionally failed to provide its self-buff. Rogue Assassination Fixed a bug where Blindside was not learnable until level 40. Warlock Demonology The Command Demon version of Spell Lock can no longer be cast without a target. Demonic Calling can now correctly be activated by casting Demonbolt.
Characters at level 110 and above may now move up to 1,000,000 gold when performing a Character Transfer.
Creatures and NPCs
Fixed a visual bug that caused some characters to lose the tops of their heads.
Dungeons and Raids
The health and damage of all enemies in Emerald Nightmare, Trial of Valor, The Nighthold, and Tomb of Sargeras has been significantly reduced. The experience awarded on completion of a random dungeon has been increased. Antorus, the Burning Throne Fixed a bug preventing Death’s Advance from functioning correctly in certain encounter situations, such as Aggramar’s Flame Rend. Eye of Azshara Damage dealt by Lightning Strike, Warlord Parjesh’s Crashing Wave, and Quicksand have been significantly reduced. The Nexus Chaotic Energy Bursts from Chaotic Rifts no longer inflict excessive damage. Obsidian Sanctum Sartharion’s Large Satchel of Spoils should again contain loot. Return to Karazhan Mana Confluences’ Ablative Shield should no longer absorb an excessive amount of damage. Utgarde Keep Dragonflayer Runecaster’s Bolthorn's Rune of Flame now deals less damage. Items
Darkmoon Deck: Promises no longer reduces some non-mana resources. Fixed a bug that prevented banners from granting expected honor, experience, and reputation bonuses. Fishing Chair and Nat's Fishing Chair have been temporarily converted into objects that are not chairs, while a bug with their functionality is fixed. They will return to their former function in a future patch.
Player versus Player
Adjusted PvP scaling to reduce the difference in power and damage between players of different item levels at level 110. Fixed a bug preventing some players from obtaining Honorable Medallion while PvP-enabled.
Fishing Fixed a bug that caused the wrong sound when casting.
Fixed a bug with the reputation bonus on completion of "Death to Agogridon". If you previously completed the quest, speak to Karnum Marshweaver in Desolace to receive your reward. The talking quest NPC should no longer appear for players who are nearby, but are not the Hunter on “Never Hunt Alone”. Players should again be able to complete “All Charged Up”. Fixed a bug with the conversation required for “Secrets of Wrymskull Uncovered”, allowing completion of “The Echo of Ymiron”. Low-level players are now able to do appropriate damage to the Devilsaur Queen during "The Ballad of Maximillian”. “Pitching In” can again be completed. World
It is again possible to earn credit toward "Field Photographer" when using the S.E.L.F.I.E. cam anywhere within the Path of Uther. Alliance characters can again complete "Uther's Blessing" by approaching Uther's statue. Previous 8.0.1 hotfixes:
July 19th July 18th
You can reach Exalted with the Gelkis and Magram Centaur Clans in Patch 8.0.1. A bug prevented players that have already completed the questline to get reputation boost. Luckily, this has been fixed by Blizzard in North America and a hotfix will be up soon in Europe as well. The fix requires a server restart.
Both reputations count toward the 100 Exalted Reputations achievement that rewards "the Esteemed" title and a mount (Pureheart Courser). You can find more details about how to start the questline here. If you completed Death to Agogridon before the pre-patch, speak to Karnum Marshweaver in Desolace to receive the reputation boost.

Players continue to discover hidden perks of the 8.0 pre-patch. Redditor fgmenth noticed that it's possible to reach Exalted reputation standing with the Gelkis and Magram Clan Centaurs in Desolace.
Update: A hotfix went live that allows players to directly talk to Marnum Marshweaver in Desolace after having completed Death to Agogridon. Check out this post for more details.
The cool thing is that you only need to complete a couple of quests to get to Exalted and both factions count toward the new 100 Exalted Reputations that rewards "the Esteemed" title and the Pureheart Courser mount.
Maraudine Prisoner Manifest is needed to start the quest chain and the item drops from Maraudine Maulers in Desolace. You need to complete some quests in order for it to drop, more details can be found here. Completing the final quest will give you enough reputation with both factions to instantly reach Exalted.

Game Director Ion Hazzikostas answered your Battle for Azeroth questions today. Check out our roundup of the latest Live Developer Q&A!
NA servers are briefly down for maintenance. Ion apologizes for 8.0.1, it was not the smoothest of pre-patch launches. "Players deserve better." They're working to bring Communities back. They completely overhauled the squish mechanism this time around so that they can bring down numbers with the press of a button instead of just scaling everything down manually. There are many issues with scaling, leading to mobs one-shotting you and various other bugs. The team's working around the clock to fix bugs and appreciate constructive feedback! When they fix a single bug, it can affect content that's several expansions old. If you earned Mage Tower appearances on one character, you'll be able to equip it on a second character of the same Class. No intent whatsoever to nerf Dungeon experience. The "weekly reward" is a visual bug. Warlock caster / idle animations are still in the works. Legacy Loot System won't apply to Legion raids in Battle for Azeroth at level 120. Personal Loot will be used for that, but if you're soloing Legion raid content, you'll receive loot as if you were in a 10-player group. The system was always intended for content 11+ levels higher. Mythic mounts should be tradable with Personal Loot. Azerite Armor is untradable in Battle for Azeroth. A piece of Azerite shoulders that's being looked at by multiple Classes has a different set of Azerite traits for each of them and they don't want you to give it to the Class that has the best traits on it. There shouldn't be a single best comp for all affixes. Mythic+ Seasons affect end-game rewards, so they want to align them with new raid tiers and PvP Seasons. In Battle for Azeroth, there will be Seasonal affixes activating at Keystone level 10. The first Seasonal affix will retire with the release of a new raid tier when they'll introduce a new one. Do we need a squish in every other expansion? Power progression is important for the game and there are too many tiers of progression and the high item level is what it takes for rewards to feel consistently rewarding. In BfA, players will begin to reach 10K DPS (as in Wrath). They didn't intend to increase the difficulty of Legacy content and old raids. Blizzard standardized camera anchor points for all Classes. When you start scrolling, you'll notice that the camera points to a point just above your head. No more claustrophobic camera snapping for Gnomes and Goblins! No plans to update traits on Underlight Angler for BfA. It's tied to Legion. Artifacts will override what you wear in your off-hand. They want to develop more customization options though. Azerite traits will have more depth throughout BfA. The vast majority of traits we've seen so far include less complex traits on leveling gear and feel lackluster. It's possible that a Mage Tower type of solo content will return in Battle for Azeroth. VoD
Some tier set bonus changes and fixes in today's hotfixes, in addition to a damage reduction for enemies below level 100, a big nerf to Argus the Unmaker, as well as a lot of tweaks for dungeons and raids. We also get a 75% reduction in PvE trinket effectiveness in PvP, a whole bunch of profession bug and stat squish fixes, and the usual quest fixes.

Death Knight Unholy Gravewarden Armaments 4-piece set bonus now reduces the cooldown of Army of the Dead by 2.0 seconds per Rune spent (was 6.0 seconds per Rune spent). Hunter Marksmanship Serpenstalker Guise 2-piece set bonus has been changed to increase all physical damage dealt by 5% (was an incorrect melee attack power increase). The Trick Shots effect will now always correctly apply when Multi-Shot hits three or more targets. Mage Shimmer should not interrupt channeled spells. Displacement functions correctly if you cast Shimmer while casting another spell. Warrior Protection Juggernaut Battlegear 2-piece set bonus has been changed to increase Armor by 5%. Creatures and NPCs

The Arcway Ivanyr Volatile Magic damage reduced on Mythic difficulty. Dire Maul Prince Tortheldrin Whirlwind should no longer deal excessive damage. Heart of Fear Empress Shek’zeer Casting spells within Shek’zeer’s Dissonance Field once again depletes its energy. Neltharion's Lair Dargrul Corrected an issue that caused Dargrul’s energy to refill too rapidly. The Nighthold Gul’dan Soul Siphon no longer heals for an excessive amount. Return to Karazhan Shade of Medivh Piercing Missiles should no longer deal excessive damage. Scarlet Halls Houndmaster Braun Bloody Mess should no longer deal excessive damage. Scarlet Monastery Commander Durand Dashing Strike no longer deals excessive damage. Ulduar Reforged Hammer of Ancient Kings should again reliably drop from Yogg-Saron for "Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings". Player versus Player
The effectiveness of trinkets that are obtained via PvE sources such as Dungeons and Raids have been reduced by 75% in PvP. Arenas and Battlegrounds Corrected the amount of damage dealt by players to creatures and vehicles in Alterac Valley and Isle of Conquest. Fixed a bug that prevented end-of-match rewards from dropping at the end of Battlegrounds and Arenas. War Mode Premade Group Finder groups in the Quest and World Boss categories will now properly filter listing according to the War Mode state of the party leader and potential applicants. Professions
Fixed a bug that prevented several First Aid recipe items from requiring the appropriate Profession. Corrected an issue that could cause Draenor Garrison NPCs to fail to offer work orders. Alchemy Fixed a bug preventing players from discovering new Pandaren Alchemy recipes. Some older-expansion flasks no longer provide more stats than Legion flasks and potions. Cooking The cooking achievement Dinner Impossible no longer requires Strand of the Ancients. Fishing Fixed a bug that prevented some players from gaining Legion fishing ranks when using rare fish. Herbalism Fixed an issue that could cause herb nodes from Outland through Pandaria to yield the wrong herb type. Mining Corrected an issue that could cause players to receive no ore from mining nodes. Quests
The start of the Mage Tower artifact storyline quest no longer requires an impossible-to-meet artifact trait condition. Fixed an issue that could cause Strom’kar to be invisible to certain races during its acquisition. The Slitherblade Naga vehicle's abilities should now deal damage and heal properly on "Wetter Than Wet". The Frightened Miner should now reliably follow his path for "Miner Troubles". The delicious contents of Yak’s Milk Flask again heals “Fallen Sentinels”. Wyrmcult Blackwhelps can now be collected for "Whelps of the Wyrmcult". General Nazgrim is again present for "The Art of War" and "Warchief's Command: Jade Forest!". During “Bringer of the Light” at the Exodar, Fel Annihilator’s Sonic Boom no longer deals excessive damage. Previous 8.0.1 hotfixes:
