- "The reasoning is pretty simple. We had two options. Today, as soon as possible (which happens to be 3PM local time), or some time after the new year. Possibly as late as late January. Our production calendar is pretty full and we have the Holidays to consider (yes, we do sometimes let people leave the building to be with their families).
- What is being fixed are the quests for the new instances. Yesterday we had to disable them and we simply did not want to let this situation stand through out the holidays. So the team put together a fix, we got it approved and we pushed hard to get this out today.
- The amount of downtime required is about the shortest we can accomodate. There is a minimum window of time required just to cycle through the systems and confirm and validate the changes. Two hours is about the smallest window of time to do that.

- "The Hytbold crafting instance is listed as part of the fix (see above).
- No BG locks isn't a bug, it's intentional.
- Visual issues aren't considered hotfix candidates (they don't block content or prevent normal game play)."
