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.

    I'm quite excited about the two mage set bonuses.

    Some of these set bonuses seem a little over powered (including my own class!), and expect these to be nerfed. I'd prefer they get nerfed before they go live, but you never know.

    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.
    Seeing as how the DK bonus is essentially the same idea and lasts for 2 minutes, I would probably guess that the warrior bonus would last just as long

    Making the tier bonus essentially up all the time for just keeping your buff up

    somehow i have a feeling it will up ur dps more than mage 4-set ups arcane dps^^ that said its next to nothing for you too, so i feel ur pain if this is coming to the live

    On a side note, some of these sound way too powerful to make it to live servers. I believe Blizzard has stated in the past that they worry about players not wanting to upgrade to newer tiers if previous set bonuses are too powerful.

    On the other hand, they could nerf the bonuses when 4.3 is released instead.

    I wonder how long it will take for people to QQ over being able to move their chars. Even though it seems like a great change, you know there will be a few people that will find fault in it.

    Wow additional fire dmg for melee but additional pet proc for caster? I hope those procs are better than ebon imp proc from BoD...still love the whole proc concept anyway

    Enhancement looks good for both bonuses, but the resto 2-pc is meh and its 4-pc is plain stupid. Don't know enough about elemental to comment on it since I don't play that spec, but I've got my fingers crossed for you guys.

    Hah yeah, I was going to mention that. I have no idea how well these new "pet" 2 set bonuses are, but our 4 set is amazing!
  1. Caylis's Avatar
    The resto druid 2 and 4 peice are cool (or should I say HOT).. I feel the 4 peice may be slightly OP when used with tree of life..Hot everyone up with a lifebloom and then wait for everyone to double heal each other.. I hope it doesnt get nerfed but i seriously recon this will.

    Rereading the 2 peice.. 40% proc seems high but 1% of base mana is a miniscule amount. Not sure its even gonna return the cost of single spell over the duration of a lifebloom. We'll see though. Nice to see its not just 540 spirit on blah blah blah.. like pretty much every single healing t11 4 peice was.
