World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands Hotfix Targets PvP Gear And Leveling Issues

With a hotfix to World of Warcraft: Shadowlands today, Blizard has fixed an issue that was causing Rated PvP items selected from the weekly great vault to not have a chance at gaining bonus attributes or sockets.

There was also a second bug identified and fixed which caused these PvP items to not be upgradable by socket items from Korthia Research.

Another major bug was renown not being awarded to players who chose to level through the threads of fate by completing Shadowlands dungeons.

This change on top of alt accounts of a main which has level 80 renown can purchase instant 40 renown at level 50 once they choose a covenant and begin earning renown on their way to level 60.
