a hotfix is just any small patch that doesn't go along with/require the server restarts/maintenance. (or simply, during runtime)
it's supposed to be relatively small and unnoticeable.
it can potentially contain fixes/buffs/nerfs/anything
once it's released, restart your PvP.net client to update like normal
