Update from 15:32:
The German patch notes for the WoW hotfixes from January 06 are online. We have updated the message accordingly.

Original message:
The expansion World of Warcraft Shadowlands is live, and the next bug fixes and adjustments were delivered 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 version 9.0.2 patch notes for Shadowlands can be found in this article. Blizzard has published the list of currently known issues here.
