Blizzard posted a a list of known Patch 8.1 issues that will be fixed in future hotfixes.
Every patch comes with a bunch of undocumented changes and/or bugs and here is a list of known issues that went live with Tides of Vengeance yesterday:
The war raging across Azeroth between Alliance and Horde has intensified. As the Alliance lays plans to retake Darkshore and regain a foothold in Kalimdor, both factions have redoubled their attacks across the zones of Kul Tiras and Zandalar.
For those just returning or who otherwise need to be caught up we have guides for both new and returning players.

Blizzard updated the folder strucure in Tides of Vengeance and it seems that retail is going to share assets with PTR versions of the game resulting in less download for future updates.
The default installation for World of Warcraft is: C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft Before Patch 8.1, the folder contained familiar subfolders, such as "Interface" where you place your addons or "Screenshots" with all your screenshots. Starting with Patch 8.1, the "Data" folder is now shared between all versions of the game which now have specific subfolders tied to them. _retail_ - contains cache and addons for the live version of the game. _ptr_ - will contain info for the most recent PTR version of the game. If you're using Twitch app to automatically update your addons, you will need to locate the new folder to update them. Before 8.1, addons had the following default installation folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons In Tides of Vengeance, the location changes so keep that in mind if you're updating your addons manually:
C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\_retail_\Interface\Addons

Here come the inaugural hotfixes of Tides of Vengeance! We have the Spirit Mend fix for BM Hunters that was previously tweeted, a big nerf for Synaptic Spark Capacitor Azerite Trait and a whole lot more trait nerfs in PvP. We also get some profession tweaks, with cooking being the focus, stamina food in particular.
December 11 (source)
Hunter Beast Mastery Fixed a bug with Spirit Mend that caused it to heal for less than intended. Dungeons and Raids
Uldir Zul, Reborn Zul's health has been reduced by 5% on Mythic difficulty. Developers’ note: Tides of Vengeance removed the Subtlety Rogue passive Shuriken Combo, which was a core part of many guilds’ strategy on this fight. We’re reducing Zul’s health to avoid the update increasing the difficulty of the fight for guilds that were relying on Shuriken Combo. Items
Heart of Azeroth Synaptic Spark Capacitor damage decreased 32%. Professions
Fixed a bug that allowed some Battle For Azeroth crafted gear to be worn by player characters who no longer had the crafting skill to create it. Cooking Battle for Azeroth flasks and feasts now increase the primary stat for tanks (was Stamina). Cooks can now learn and serve new Stamina foods. Player versus Player
Rogue Snake Eyes (Azerite Trait) is reduced by 30% when engaged in combat with enemy players. Shaman Pack Spirit (Azerite Trait) is reduced by 80% when engaged in combat with enemy players (was a 50% reduction). The following Azerite Traits are reduced to 50% effectiveness when engaged in combat with enemy players: Death Knight - Magus of the Dead Demon Hunter - Revel in Pain Druid - Masterful Instincts , Arcanic Pulsar , Lively Spirit Hunter - Dire Consequences , Surging Shots Mage - Arcane Pummeling , Flash Freeze , Blaster Master , Wildfire Monk - Glory of the Dawn Paladin - Avenger's Might , Light's Decree , Righteous Conviction Priest - Whispers of the Damned Rogue - Nothing Personal Shaman - Lava Shock Warlock - Dreadful Calling , Baleful Invocation Warrior - Intimidating Presence , Crushing Assault , Bastion of Might Quests
Fixed a bug where enemies required for “Black Moon Rising ” weren’t providing quest credit when killed. Patch 8.1 notes.
