World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Hotfixes For July 14th

Blizzard has announced Hotfixes for July 14th, with a focus on class issues, and updates to the Sanctum of Domination raid.

Blizzard also introduced an item that reduces the loss of Stygia upon death in the Maw. Players can purchase Treatise: Bonds of Stygia in Mortals from Ve'nari, upon reaching tier 4 with the Archivists' Codex.

This will greatly improve the 9.1 experience, especially when it comes to dealing with the new world boss located in the Maw.
