Patch 4.0.3 on live servers this week
Nothing official, but if everything goes as planned Patch 4.0.3 should be deployed on live servers this week. This is NOT THE PATCH CHANGING THE OLD WORLD, Patch 4.0.3a will do that and the one deployed this week is mostly here to pave the way for the shattering of Azeroth. Patch notes below.

General
  • Much of the data being downloaded in patch 4.0.3 will pave the way for the shattering of Azeroth shortly before the release of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm on December 7.
  • The leader of Wintergrasp raids can no longer kick players from the raid (this change will also apply to Tol Barad in Cataclysm).
  • When in a Looking For Dungeon group, using an instance portal to that instance will now take players to the Looking For Dungeon entrance point instead of the normal destination of that portal. This will make it easier to return to the instance after dying in an LFD group.
  • Honorable Kills are no longer awarded for killing players below level 5.

User Interface
  • Added pets to the new raid unit frames when displayed in party.
  • The default UI Scale has been altered so it will be set at a 1:1 pixel/texel ratio. This will result in a smaller UI appearance for higher resolution monitors.
  • Players may now adjust the local "Lag Tolerance" time for better precision of spell timing. This is an advanced-users-only feature found in the Interface Options (Combat) panel.

Bug Fixes
  • Macros now handle spell variant transitions better. For example, Trap Launcher causes a different version of Frost Trap to be cast. Previously the macro system was not handling this transition properly.
  • Queuing in Looking For Dungeon for a different wing of the instance a player is already in now works properly. For example, a party can now queue for Scarlet Monastery - Library after completing Scarlet Monastery - Graveyard.
  • Killing High Interrogator Gerstahn before killing Emperor Dagran Thaurissan in a Blackrock Depths - Upper City random Looking For Dungeon run will now provide the proper reward. This also applies to Archmage Arugal and the Crown Chemical Company bosses in Shadowfang Keep during the Love is in the Air holiday event.
  • Repeatedly inspecting other players should now function correctly.
  • Area heal-over-time effects should no longer cause players to stand up.
  • Male blood elves have received a crash course in dancing and now know to stop dancing when they run.
  • Drake mounts have gotten bored with gliding and will flap their wings again when flying forward.
  • Druid Flight Form now properly appears in the Spellbook before Expert Riding is learned.
  • Sunfire's damage-over-time effect now deals damage at the same rate as Moonfire's damage- over-time effect.
  • GM Ticket messages should now displace buff icons instead of obscuring them.

Tier 11 Models Preview - All races / Classes / Gender
I've been doing Armor Sets previews for years, and I'm always surprised by how much time I have to spend on it. I know I promised it before the end of last week but ... Monday is close enough, and I'm totally blaming it on the new races/classes conditions!

Most of the screenshots should match the in-game models, except for a few bugs (T11 Priest on female gnomes) but 99% of it is just fine at this point. Races are always screenshoted in the following order: Human, Dwarf, Night Elf, Draenei, Worgen, Gnome, Orc, Troll, Goblin, Undead, Tauren, Blood Elf

    The issue with the cooking awards not updating is intentional. It's supposed to change and start counting the new cata awards instead.

    Can anyone please confirm if Herald of the Titans, The Immortal, etc achievs will be removed in this patch ?

    Would love a blue post about that.

    For some reason I find the look of female worgen wearing warlock t11 helm really amusing.
  1. Melkandor's Avatar
    I have a question. If this patch comes out tomorrow, is this the one that will remove the Herald of the Titans achievement? Or is that 4.0.3a? Thanks in advance!

    My husband is so upset because I literally burst out laughing when I saw how Hunter T11 was gonna look on him. I have a feeling he'll be wearing non-tier for raiding, LOL.

    Eh, I liked the soaring. I thought they didn't soar enough before, I just hope they made it a nice balance between the two, especially if you are just flying in a straight line and not up or down.
