They’re too numerous to detail here, but for the exact specifics you can checkout Blizzard’s blog post here for all the information.

Today’s World of Warcraft balancing patch sets the table for the August 14th release of the game’s newest expansion, Battle for Azeroth. The events leading up to the iconic game’s newest update have ruffled the feathers of many fans.
