General
  • An issue was preventing some players from properly mailing account bound items to other characters on the same realm and Battle.net account. If you are still experiencing this issue, we recommend you log into both characters before sending the mail. The characters don’t need to be online at the same time for this to work.
  • Children’s Week quests should no longer be unavailable to players who recently transferred factions.
  • Flying wisp form and flying mounts, both living and dead, can enter bodies of water smoothly.

Classes
  • Spells or talents which provide pushback protection should now be functioning correctly (i.e. Burning Soul for mages or Suppression for warlocks). This time we mean it.

Rogue (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
  • Shadowstep is instantly teleporting players behind their target when the target is in motion.

Dungeons & Raids
  • Call to Arms rewards will now be displayed in the Dungeon Finder UI while a player is in the dungeon so they know what rewards they will get.

Throne of the Four Winds
  • Damage from Ice Storm in phase 1 of Al’Akir is ticking twice per second, which was causing excessive damage on Heroic difficulty. To compensate, the damage per tick has been reduced for Heroic difficulty.

Items
  • Players are now able to get a random Darkmoon card inside of a Sealed Scroll Case, instead of always getting a Darkmoon Card of Destruction.

Quests & Creatures
  • The Innkeeper's Daughter can no longer be targeted for healing or harmful effects.
  • Players now fail The Crucible of Carnage: The Earl of Evisceration when killed by Lord Geoffery Tulvan during the encounter. Players are able to pick up the quest after it is failed and the event starts again without issue.

    Hmm, Hunter set bonuses looks hot.

    2pc - regular proc dmg shot for x% dmg
    4pc - 10% chance to get off an shot without focus cost looks sexy.. means an extra Aimed Shot here and there.

    Should they have played up the Land aspect intstead?

    OT:
    Elemental 2-piece is interesting, could be a major boost or almost worthless, depending on RNG.
    Elemental 4-piece seems like awesome-sauce. ^^

    Resto druid T12 bonuses make me ... disappointed.
  1. penguinsane's Avatar
    I am sooooo excited about both the 2/4 piece bonuses for resto druids and mages. The 4pcs for both look awesome. I can only imagine the raidheals you can put out when Lifeblooming a raid up while popping TOL. omfgg.

    "Arms/Fury 2 Pieces - Your Battle Shout and Commanding Shout abilities also grant you 3 rage every 5 sec for $d1."
    Wtf? Really? Seems like really shit dps bonus. More like dps decrease if you're trying to get that on every cd. Its good for start of the fight. And when moving you can refresh it but from aside from that. Seems pretty useless. Well dk's get same but 4set is proc chance when other plate dps has 100% to do that dmg. So if rng is a **** you could end up not hitting at all.

    I have waited for this for years. I used to be pretty anal about what order my characters came in, even going as far as deleting alts (lots of them) to get them in the order I wanted.

    Smells like TG is coming back in a big way for Fury.

After using the Cauterizing Flame, players cannot benefit from it again for 10 sec.

    LoL, seems to be a LightWell 2.0.
    What does this mean?
    that no priest will take 4 pieces
    me either.....

    Feral 4 Pieces - Your finishing moves have a 20% chance per combo point to extend the duration of Berserk by 2 sec

    2 measly seconds for a 4pc set bonus, u have to be kidding. If it was 2 secs PER combo point, now that would be better.

    sreiously we can move characters up and down what a joke we need more spots on our realms not this crap
  1. Spritely's Avatar
    So definitely tasty set bonuses there! The 4pc for warlocks will certainly kill AffDrain spec also. Elemental Shaman 4pc has been requested as part of the talents for ages now.

    the feral 4pc kitty aspect might be the worse tier bonus in the history of WoW

    That no bad priest will want it.
    Or you could just be a pugger.
    But a good priest is usually in a good guild, where people can click on both cauterizing flame and lightwell.

    I love the changes, its way better than how it was before with just a % increase, this makes set bonuses fun and interesting!
