WoW: January 16 hotfixes for patch 8.3 - Patch Notes

The content patch 8.3 for the current expansion World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth is live, and the next bug fixes and adjustments will be delivered in the form of hotfixes.

Below you can read the English patch notes until the release of the German
