Below you will find a list of hotfixes recently applied to the PTR that address various bugs and mechanic tweaks.

These hotfixes should not require you to download a new patch for the PTR. Some of the hotfixes below will go live the moment they are implemented while others may require a restart of the game to go into effect. Please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch.
