Patch 4.1 Hotfixes - May 4

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.

    Yay for "joining, leaving, joining, leaving"...sooner or later a pet or mount will be in the bag. Sounds like one of the more stupid ideas by Blizz,,,,
    I think it will just be mentioned that you get the bag (just like it mentions the gold you get, the extra XP and/or tokens), not the actual content of the bag.

    Yes. Believe me...there will be tons of tanks that will join a random heroic, check what's in the bag if they succeed in the heroic...and leave if the right pet or mount isn't in it. Not that damage dealer or healer wouldn't do the same if they had the chance...;-)

    Maybe...although I don't see the sense in that because...well...if you join while the call to arms button is active then you already know that you will get the bag, right? ;-)
    And at the current situation it basicly means that tanks will always get the bag anyway...;-)
    So it wouldn't actually be a noteworthy change in my book.

You ask what we loose if people don't click on the spawn, we loose throughput. While others gain it passively, and in a great deal, ours is totally out of our hands. That said, the 2set shadow is just too good for us anyway. The potential amount of regen we can gain is huge and as we go further into firelands, the bosses will be become longer. We could see 3 shadowfiend uses in some fights. That gives us regen that no other healer has. Couple that with mana tide, we have the ability to seriously pump out HPS on a constant basis.

    The 4pc will be changed. Probably not much or to what would be best, but it will be changed. They won't allow all the healers worth their salt to go with 2/2, its not in their design philosophy. We could also see the shadow 2pc be changed to make sure. Time will tell, but the general response is that it's just not good enough.
    This is a better explanation. I agree, if going 2holy/2shadow is better, they will either make more appealing 4holy or move 2shadow to 4shadow.

    Would be nice if they'd also fix double lightning fields on H Al'akir.

    The 2 piece elemental shaman bonus is either incredibly powerful, or is one I'm going to hate a lot. If the chance is high, we can have the fire elemental up all the time (provided you don't get stuck in fights where it somehow disappears, or simply stops attacking the target you want it to) since its on cool down when you summon it, and with a 2 minute duration, it gives a lot of chances for it to proc. Or if its really low, it forces using it in the beginning of the fight for a chance to do a good chunk more deeps.

    If the proc chance is high enough I would probably use it in restro spec along with the 2 piece restro bonus.

    So much for the "bonuses like some bosses special attacks"... +fire dmg only?

    Guess firelands mobs don't enjoy fire that much hehehe, would be funny if they were immune to fire dmg or took less dmg from it (would be reasonable if they did).

    Holy 2 Pieces - Casting Flash of Light, Holy Light, or Divine Light on your Beacon of Light target has a 40% chance to grant you 2% of your base mana.


    Really? 40% chance, IF you heal your beacon target with a direct casted heal, to gain 2% of your BASE mana? That's terrible in nearly every way imaginable.

    I can see the shaman tier bonus that has a 40% chance of riptide heal to cause us to gain 1% of our base mana to be seen as alittle over powered due to riptide being able to be placed on 3 targets at a time. But i can dig it
    Druids have similar for the lifebloom heals, and while lifebloom (outside of Tree of Life form) only hits one target, it heals every second, where I believe riptide heals every 3? So we're at least looking at the same regen as them.

    You are right, but it won't be free.

    The spriest 4pc looks terrible again. I envy anyone who can build up 3 orbs in 3 seconds to actually make that useful. Im lucky if I can get 1 built up before my fucking 2100 mastery proc wears off.

    2piece - Sort of disease-less Blood model, seems nice.

    Mage:
    4Piece: AM while moving, at last something to make Arcane viable in heavy movement fights
    The DK 2pc wont enable DKs to use the diseaseless rotation because it does not put up the debuffs; which is the main reason blood dks dont go diseaseless (unless there are 2 tanks on the boss).

Not to mention, The summoned treants will probably behave the same way guardians do, and chase me down even while stealthed. Thank god my rogue is not the only class I pvp on.
    Wait you PvP in PvE gear?

    YEEAAHHHH!
    But still, even 2 piece will be hard to obtain. Even now, T11 4p is quite difficult.

    Then don't use 4piece =p Just like a lot of paladins didn't use 4pc this time around.

    Hmm.. anyone finding it weird that our 2 sets does additional Fire Damage?.. Shouldn't be like Frost to do damage to fire targets?.. Should like be Ice sets instead fire because were in Firelands... little odd to me.. Also, I think blizzard became lazy on the Tier Sets and their bonuses.. Again..

    So the screenshot that shows the ability to change the order of your toons on the character selection screen... Yay!

    As for the character names in the screenshot. Weak.
