Throughout the testing process, we will be implementing new changes on patch 4.0.6 test realms and updating the patch notes frequently. Please note that while some changes may be added to the patch notes, they may not be active on the Public Test Realms until a new patch build is made available for testing.

Below you'll find a log to track what is new in the latest version of the patch notes.
