Note that while the term "hotfix" is used this doesn't mean it's a live hotfix visible in 7.1--it means that updates are being made to the PTR outside of formal builds with datamining.

7.1.5 PTR: Compilation of All Class Changes From All Builds - Sun, 18 Dec 2016 18:45:12 -0600 The 7.1.5 PTR has been active for many weeks now, and a popular request we've gotten at Wowhead is to present an overview of the class changes from Patch 7.1 to 7.1.5, aka "unofficial patch notes." Every week Wowhead posts a list of the datamined changes from each 7.1.5 PTR update, but some players would also like to see the changes from the past few months to get an overall sense of how the classes evolve.
