Below are the official hotfix patch notes from the official site:

Blizzard LogoHotfix Notes


  • Heroic Leap, Grappling Hook, Infernal Strike, and Metamorphosis will now work more consistently, especially going up hills.
  • Fixed a bug that caused movements such as Roll or Fel Rush to sometimes stop before reaching their intended distance.

Demon Hunter

  • Darkness is now only available to Havoc Demon Hunters.
  • Demon Hunters are now able to gain reputation with Netherwing, The Tillers, Order of the Cloud Serpent, Shado-Pan Assault, and Emperor Shaohao.
  • Demon Hunters can now see and purchase PvP mounts from vendors and can get mount drops in Pandaria.
  • The Ashran Portal in Stormwind and Orgimmar will now allow Demon Hunters to go directly to Stormshield or Warspear, regardless of whether or not they have completed the Tanaan Jungle intro quests.


  • Dire Beast is a bit less noisy.


  • Paladins can now use Divine Steed while carrying a flag in battlegrounds.
  • [Retribution] Shield of Vengeance is no longer on the global cooldown.
  • [Retribution] Hand of Hindrance’s mana cost is reduced to 13% of base mana (was 27%).
  • [Retribution] Fist of Justice now reduces the cooldown of Hammer of Justice by 8 seconds when Word of Glory is cast.


  • Shadowstrike range has been reduced to 15 yards (was 25 yards).

Dungeons and Raids

  • Players are no longer immediately instance locked when logging into an instance. A warning prompt now occurs when logging back in, offering the option of saving to or leaving the instance.


  • Invasions should now provide XP on stage completion to characters under max level.
  • While an invasion zone is active, the Spirit Healers near major towns will offer resurrections at timed intervals.
  • Restoration Druids, Balance Druids, and Mistweaver Monks should now be able to receive the Felshroud Vest from Legion Invasion Crates.
  • Barracks leaders and their command crystals should now also drop Nethershards.


  • When set to assist, players’ pets will now attack all targets that have been damaged by the player, rather than only the player’s current target.

Sadly, Fel Rush still stops for me before reaching my intended distance =\

It might be worth be reporting this as a bug still, maybe they haven't fixed every instance of it

      We have another interesting interview with Principal Exterior Level Designer Gary Platner and In-game Cinematic Project Director Terran Gregory by VG247. Check out the highlights!
      Check out the full interview over at VG247.
      Interview Highlights
      Alex Afrasiabi designed Battle for Azeroth like it would be the last expansion; they didn't hold back, went for the mega, and seized the day on design. Terran is really sad that gnomes didn't make an appearance in the cinematics, but CGI has its limitations to how many characters can be created. Siege of Lordaeron included more characters than any other Blizzard CGI film before. It's Blizzard's mission to tell the most compelling and emotional story that they can. Making everyone enjoy the story in the same way is an impossible goal. With the release of Warbringers: Sylvanas, Horde players started to show their discontent. There's even been one extreme case of targeted harassment aimed at Christie Golden. Creating a story that revolves around an all-out war required bold decisions. They knew the reactions to the burning of Teldrassil would be passionate, but they did exceed their expectations. Storytelling is about highs and lows. Old Soldier would not have resonated so well without Warbringers: Sylvanas. WoW is a living, breathing game. The team's always looking for ways to improve it. They'll support WoW for as long as the players continue to give them support. From a story perspective, they wondered how great an end WoW would need to have. It's an evergreen franchise that they've maintained like a "carefully-tended bonsai tree."

      We have the inaugural hotfixes of Battle for Azeroth! We have a whole lot of quest fixes, including the inability to start second or third War Campaign Footholds, as well as mounts and dungeons getting a look.
      August 14 (source)
      Temple of Sethraliss Fixed a bug that caused Avatar of Sethraliss to sometimes become inactive. Mounts
      Captured Dune Scavenger is now usable by both Horde and Alliance characters. Chewed-On Reins of the Terrified Pack Mule is now learnable and usable by Alliance characters. Quests
      The Nazmir quest "Poisoning the Brood" will now share credit to party members. The Targets for "A Wall of Iron" will now respawn more frequently. Players that were in the vicinity of, but did not get credit for killing Vilank'dor, will once again be able to complete the quest "To Sacrifice a Loa". Fixed an issue where too many enemies were participating in "Mojambo". Players should now be able to advance and complete "Devour Humanoid". “Adapting Our Tactics” can now be abandoned and re-accepted after selecting an upgrade to pursue Players who disconnect during “Rodrigo's Revenge” can now continue the quest. “The Last Witch Doctor of Krag'wa” will no longer talk to nearby players who are not on the quest. Crawgs in "Great Brewfest Kodo" will now respawn more frequently. Adjusted the range of the Seaforium Smoke Grenade on “Boom goes the Bomb” so that it can better go boom. Interacting with the Mysterious Brew during "Enforcing Fate" should now reliably grant credit. Fixed an issue that could cause players to be unable to select their second or third War Campaign Footholds. Players who had previously been stuck in this state may now interact with the scouting map near Halford or Nathanos to choose a Foothold. Previous Patch 8.0.1 Hotfixes

      We don't know at this time how to unlock Kul Tirans, but based on requirements of previous Allied Races, it's safe to assume that it's going to be related to new content, Kul Tourist, maybe?
      Playable Classes  
      Only Druids have been confirmed as a playable race so far and Kul Tiran Humans have really cool Druid forms!

      No official racial mount has been announced just yet, but Kul Tiran Druid forms revolve around the "wicker" theme, so the racial mount may very well be a wickerbeast?
