October 12th Hotfixes: Improved Emissary Rewards
2016/10/12 at 10:48 AM
In the latest round of Blizzard hotfixes, items from Emissary rewards will now have an ilvl closer to those from World Quests. Emissary caches tended to have loot in the ilvl 805 range, which didn't feel rewarding after World Quest rewards were scaling up to ilvl 835 before Titanforged procs.

October 3rd Hotfixes: Vantus Runes in Mythic Emerald Nightmare, Mythic Il'gynoth, Keystone Timers
2016/10/03 at 11:04 PM
The latest round of hotfixes features some changes to Emerald Nightmare and Mythic+ Dungeons:
The Keystone timers for several dungeons have been adjusted.
can now be used in Mythic Emerald Nightmare.
On Mythic difficulty,
's health has been increased by 200%, but loses one-third of that value each time the
Eye of Il'gynoth
and Mythic+ guides have been updated with today's hotfixes.
A common strategy for Mythic Il'gynoth involved using raid compositions that focus on maximizing burst damage to complete the encounter in a single phase. This approach removes huge portions of the encounter and can overly favor a specific set of classes and specializations, causing negative social pressures in groups that have yet to reach this encounter. These changes ensure that raid groups must enter Il'gynoth's core twice in order to complete the encounter on Mythic difficulty, but offset that change by speeding up the process of destroying the Eye to shorten the overall length of the encounter.

September 23rd Hotfixes - Major Class Tuning for Emerald Nightmare
2016/09/23 at 9:20 PM
Blizzard has posted a huge round of hotfixes after analyzing the data from the first few days of Emerald Nightmare and Season 1 PvP. As per the Developer Notes:
As we discussed last week, we’ve been gathering a massive amount of data based on how each spec has been performing in this first week of raids and Mythic Keystone dungeons, so that we can make a number of tuning changes with next week’s realm maintenance. The overall goal of these changes is to buff up some underperforming specs while also reining in a couple of over-performers, without dramatically changing anyone’s playstyle or causing them to feel as though the spec they chose to focus on became the “wrong choice.”
All of these class changes will be applied during the next scheduled weekly maintenance period in each region. Note that there are also a number of PvP-specific changes, which are noted separately below.
September 16th Hotfixes - Tank Damage and AoE Nerfs
2016/09/16 at 7:27 PM
The latest round of Legion hotfixes are up! Of particular note:
Most abilities used by Tank specializations have had their damage reduced by 10%.
Havoc and Windwalker burst AoE was proven to be too strong.
Several followers have had the effectiveness of their abilities reduced against players.
Legion foods and drinks should now restore twice as much health and mana.
Fixed an issue where PvP World Quests would occasionally reward items that were more powerful than intended for low Honor rank players.
