Patch 5.1 hotfixes

I believe the servers are being restarted atm. I have no idea if this counts for today or if there's another reason the servers are all down:


Here you'll find a list of hotfixes that address various issues related to the recently released World of Warcraft patch 5.1. Hotfixes are updates we make on our end without requiring you to download a new patch. Some of the hotfixes below went live the moment they were implemented, while others may require your realm to be restarted to go into effect. Please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch update. We will continue to update this list in the days to come as additional hotfixes are applied.

Safeguard will no longer sometimes take effect on allies that are out of line of sight, out of range, or unreachable.

If we lose this freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment, those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening.

For Rogues, by Rogues, to be used at the Rogue drive through when you order a side-order of Rogue.

Your Mind!

The servers were down when you posted. More than likely, the reason the servers are down is what you just posted, considering this sentence: Hotfixes are updates we make on our end without requiring you to download a new patch. Fifteen minutes to patch it in to all servers is feasible.
