The 5 day streak ended and we got a whole 3 days of rest between hotfixes and now they're back. In addition to the class tuning arriving tomorrow/Wednesday we have some more class changes today, with mostly DK tweaks and then also Rogues, Warlocks and Warriors getting some treatment. We also got some resilience tweaking on lower level items, Velen's DPS has been nerfed, Rogues can once again finish their class hall campaign and a very... interesting fix for hot buttered popcorn.

      Two Sides to Every Tale is a new achievement that rewards two interesting mounts in Patch 8.1.5. Alliance players will unlock a Wolf mount, whereas the Horde can get a Horse mount. You can earn them by completing the Tides of Vengeance War Campaign and the A Nation United / Zandalar Forever! achievements on both factions.
