And we now have the very first official hotfixes of the pre-expansion patch! We have a bunch of class fixes for various abilities that were either bugged or incorrectly converted, fixes for legacy content and Tomb of Sargeras bosses, as well as other stat squish issues in the open world, and finally, a whole lot of quest items that can again be looted and other quest fixes.

Legion Assaults now correctly scale down to player level 98. 8.0.1 Patch Notes.
It seems 8.0.1 is one of the more unstable patches launched, as in addition to the significant server problems that plagued the US and OC launches there are also many more issues that still linger. After the known issues posted yesterday we have yet more getting addressed by Blizzard, but this time with some solutions as well.
First off we have several suggestions on how to fix lost Mage Tower artifact appearances, as well as clarifications on the overall artifact transmogging system:
Mage Tower Appearances (source)
Before a hotfix that we made to the game on Tuesday, July 17 at 3:30 p.m. PDT, some players in the Americas, Australia, and New Zealand may have found that the Mage Tower Artifact appearance they thought they earned had gone missing. We have some suggestions for you, if you believe this to be the case.
Check your quest logs.
If you have either the scenario quest completed, or you’re on the final quest to return to Dalaran and talk to the Council of Six, you should be able to go turn it in and obtain the appearance.
Go to The Violet Citadel.
It’s possible that one of the Council of Six has the final mage tower quest available for you. Go to Dalaran, accept the quest, stand in the circle and have your weapon upgraded, and then complete the quest. This should award the appearance.
We apologize for the confusion. Thank you very much!
Artifact transmog (source)
Since the Pre-Patch went live yesterday, we’ve seen some questions and concerns from players on several transmogrification issues. We’d like to elaborate on some details about how the system works:
Transmogging an Artifact to look like a non-Artifact from your weapon appearances collection should work as it did before.
You can now have a transmogrify vendor put an earned Artifact appearance on appropriate non-Artifact weapons belonging to characters who are of the same class and specialization as the character who earned the appearance.
However, if you wish to apply an Artifact appearance to an Artifact, you must visit the Artifact Forge in your Class Hall, and your character is restricted to appearances that were earned on that character.
Artifact appearances that come in pairs (main-hand + off-hand) cannot be separated when you’re using two items. If you apply the appearance of one of these to your main-hand item, your off-hand item will use the appearance of the other, and vice versa.
Artifact appearances that come in pairs *can* be applied to two-hand weapons. A Shadow Priest can now make a staff look like Xal’atath, Blade of the Black Empire.
Some Artifact appearances are so awesome that they can bypass restrictions on some weapon types. However, even though some restrictions have been lifted, other weapon restrictions remain. It is not intended that a melee weapon can be made to look like an Artifact bow or gun. Likewise, you can't make a bow/gun/wand look like an Artifact melee weapon.
When doing transmogrification, you can select a slot to alter in the character pane on the left of the window, and then *right-click* on an appearance in the right pane of the window and use “transmogrify as”. This is especially useful when you visit the transmogrifier as a Feral or Guardian Druid.
Thank you very much. We’ll continue to keep an eye on all of your questions and feedback!
We then also have another list of common issues, some with explanations and solutions:

GAMEPLAY: DIDN'T RECEIVE EXPECTED LOOT IN MYTHIC CACHE Known issue: Due to changes to the Mythic+ system in Battle for Azeroth, players will not receive their normal Mythic Cache loot and keystone this week. As this was unintended, we will be providing 1000 Wakening Essence as well as a Level 2 Keystone in the Mythic Cache for those who qualified for loot in the previous week. Our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience!
ELOTHIR DOESN'T SHOW UP FOR VARIOUS QUESTS Known issue: The Ancient Elothir does not spawn as required for a variety of quests, preventing players from completing the zone. We are looking to fix this issue as soon as possible.
FULLSCREEN MODE UNAVAILABLE Not a bug: For compatibility reasons, the option to play in fullscreen has been removed from the game. Players may choose between playing in either windowed or fullscreen (windowed) mode.
UNABLE TO CLAIM GIFTED BATTLE FOR AZEROTH KEY Under investigation: We have received reports that some players are unable to claim a gifted expansion. An investigation has been launched.
MISSING EXTRA BAG SLOTS Under investigation: Some players that have both the Authenticator and SMS Protect enabled have reported missing the four extra bag slots. We are currently attempting to verify this issue.
Redditor Shaxai and r/wow compiled a list of undocumented changes in the 8.0 pre-patch. Check it out!
The official Patch 8.0.1 Patch Notes can be found here.
Undocumented Changes in Patch 8.0.1
High Warlord Naj'entus in Black Temple received a new model. Many old creature models have been updated, including vultures, and gorillas. The world map screen you see while taking a boat/zeppelin is shown in HD. Some faction leaders have new voicelines. Kael'thas Sunstrider in Tempest Keep is bald (bug) Portals to other continents now appear as blue circles on the map. Share The Love is no longer required for Glory of the Hero. Demon Hunters can now purchase Slayer's Tabard for 100 Gold in their Order Hall. Legion treasures award experience. Blood/Void Elf stealth animations have been updated. Wrynn's Vanguard faction is no longer available with the removal of Ashran. Wrynn's Vanguard Tabard and the title have been removed as well. The tabard can still be purchased if you reached Exalted with the faction before the 8.0 pre-patch. You can fly throughout Ashran. Amani Battle Bear, Amani War Bear & Vicious War Bear received new skins and skeletons. Strand of the Ancients achievements are no longer obtainable. Chromatic Sword drops again. Mountain Horse & Swift Mountain Horse have new models. Daily quests are no longer denoted by a blue exclamation mark, but rather a golden aura. Did you observe any changes not listed here? Post them in the reddit megathread and we'll add them to the list above!
No more Battle Chests or purchasing previous expansions, all you need is an active subscription!
Well, no one has to to buy base WoW anymore, ever! Everything you need to do to play up until the upcoming expansion, Battle for Azeroth, is an active subscription. No more battle chests and individual purchases, just pay that monthly fee and access the entire game as it is at the moment, with nothing missing until August 14th, when you'll have to buy BfA for the new content. Additional digital deluxe items from each expansion are available at the Blizzard shop individually, but it's now easier than ever to jump into the game and just start playing.
