Patches and hotfixes

Developers' note: We fixed a bug that incorrectly allowed Honor rewarded from quests and mercenary mode bonuses to contribute toward the "Battlefield Brawler" and "Battlefield Tactician" achievements required to unlock these Essences. To account for [this change], we have reduced the Honor amount necessary to earn these Essences. Rank 4 for these Essences will remain unchanged.
  • Battle for Azeroth Hotfix (2019-07-18): Resolved an issue that prevented Sphere of Suppression's movement speed reduction from being removed by effects such as [Blessing of Freedom].
  • Battle for Azeroth Patch 8.2.0 (2019-06-25): Added.
