from Sara Petzold
The WoW developers have installed another, third hotfix on the live server, which fixes problems with the Shadowlands pre-patch. The hotfix takes care of problems with the barber and individual quest and class bugs, among other things.

Never play on patch day – this wisdom of the WoW community has also proven itself in the case of the Shadowlands pre-patch, which arrived on the live servers with various minor and major problems. The developers at Blizzard are working on appropriate solutions and have now installed the third hotfix on the servers. This small patch fixes problems with the barber as well as individual classes, quests and dungeons:

  • Barber: Textures of character models and skin and eye colors in night elves
  • Classes: Magician portals for all group members, individual quests for magicians, protection warrior talents adapted
  • Fixed bug in dungeons with mythical keystones (affixes, damage)
  • Island of Exiles: Players can no longer duel on the ships of the Horde and Alliance.

The developers have also fixed various minor bugs in individual quests. Incidentally, you have so far only published the full patch notes in English. We will update this news accordingly as soon as the German patch notes are online. Until then you will find them here English-language patch notes:
