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.

    As a shaman healer, I'd much rather have the 540 spirit than the proposed "chain heal hit 1 more target" for T12 4-pc bonus. :|

    Uh... What?

    However I've been hoping to be able to move characters around the selection screen for a long time now, so this is good news to me.

    Meh.. lackluster bear tank set bonuses.. yet again.
  1. hairbearbunch's Avatar
    It's nice to see the 4set for rogue's actually seeming quite good - really depends on how much it procs. Still, it's great they realise tott was a successful set bonus during ICC and decided to do something new with it. I love it!

    I hope everyone has their particle settings on ultra!

    Hunter 4 set seems very meh, i hope they change it to just the main shots, I really dont want to waste it on an arcane shot.

    I really like these set bonuses compare to the previous tier set bonuses where you get like 5% chance to crit with a certain spell. WotLK set bonuses were mostly like that for 2 piece. Now these tier pieces are pretty unique.

    Same. Since I am mainly healing 10mans I find myself snipehealing 90% of the time and Chain Heal spam is very rare for me. If this 4pc bonus is going to be useful at all in 10mans they better remove the range limit on the spell, period.

    Awesome update, the set bonuses look sick! Can't wait to have a fire DoT as a Prot Warrior.

    Also arranging characters is going to feed my OCD

    Is it just me or has everyone overlooked the CTA change?
    In my interpretation, it means tanks will leave if the satchel wont have what they want

    Fun how most of the set bonuses are:
    - passive dmg/aggro increase
    - better mitigation CDs
    - free mana regen
    - free aoe healing

    and, while we don't know numbers, PEOPLE IS ALREADY COMPLAINING ON HOW BAD THE SET BONUSES ARE.

    Guys you make me rofl more very day
  1. Heimia's Avatar
    If you never cast the spell that gets affected by the bonus, then the complain is kind of obvious. Then numbers doesn't matter for crap.
  1. Kendeura's Avatar
    Arcane got a massive buff lol.

    Worried about what happen with T13 though...

    Do NOT want another mini-lightwell as a 4pc. It's cool, but won't be used to maximum efficiency.

    It's even worse than lightwell because it'll just pop up unexpectedly and randomly. "REMEMBER TO CLICK MY LIGHTWELL, AND MY CAUTERIZING FLAME THAT MIGHT SPAWN"

    Why won't people need to click the blooming flower on the ground to receive the extra lifebloom proc? Why must only priests suffer?

    Because Arcane is totally not a MM main nuke, totally.

    And here it says next shot, not next arcane shot.

    So Blizzard agreed with you. What's with all the cursing about it? /confused.

    The 4p priest bonus is kind of asking for a Sony fiasco to bestow upon Blizzard.

    It gives more rng to spec which is suffering from it already, also you don't know how much %to proc bonus it will give. They may slap a 1% on it and call it a day.
