Update from November 12:
The developers at Blizzard have published the German patch notes for the WoW hotfixes from November 11. We have updated the message accordingly.

Original message from November 11:
The pre-patch 9.x for the upcoming expansion World of Warcraft Shadowlands is live, and the next bug fixes and adjustments were added today in the form of hotfixes.

Below you can read the official patch notes. Hotfixes are updates that are applied server-side without the need to download new data. Some of the changes listed below will take effect as soon as Blizzard implements them, while others will only take effect after an announced realm restart. Please note that some issues cannot be fixed without a client-side patch. The full patch notes for Pre-Patch 9.x can be found in this article. Blizzard has published the list of currently known issues here.

WoW: Shadowlands Pre-Patch 9.x Hotfixes as of November 11, 2020


  • The Battle Pet quests "Varzok" and "Marlene Trichdie" now no longer incorrectly grant an abnormally high gold reward.
  • During the quest "The Power of the Shield Guards" in Feralas, the fight against Cho'gall no longer takes a disproportionately long time.

World Events

  • Sharding is now active on role-playing (RP) servers in the Icecrown zone for the duration of the Tide of Death event.
  • Characters who defeated Nathanos but did not receive a reward can now re-complete the world quest to earn the corresponding reward.
  • Fixed a bug where a video sequence would not play for dead characters in the quest "Nathanos Pestrufer" after Nathanos Pestrufer was defeated.
