Achievements
  • Bear-ly Made It (new achievement): Save all four prisoners before they are sacrificed in Zul'Aman on Heroic difficulty.

Classes: General
  • Players are once again free to dance in combat (without causing graphic errors). Other animations, such as attacks, will take precedence over dancing. The dance animation will be suppressed until the higher priority animation is complete. Fun has been unnerfed.

Druid (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
Glyphs
  • Glyph of Ferocious Bite has been redesigned. It now causes Ferocious Bite to heal the caster for 1% of maximum health for each 10 energy used.

Paladin (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
Holy
  • Denounce has been redesigned. It still reduces the mana cost of Exorcism. However, it no longer has a chance on Holy Shock of making Exorcism free and instant. Instead, it has a 50/100% chance to prevent the Exorcism target from causing critical effects for the next 6 seconds. This effect can be dispelled.
  • Holy Shock mana cost has been decreased to 7% of base mana, down from 8%.

Protection
  • Holy Shield now increases block chance by 5% while active, instead of increasing the amount of damage blocked by 10%.

Professions
Jewelcrafting
  • The shield block value bonus from Eternal Earthsiege Diamond has been increased to 3%, up from 1%.

Armor Sets - Druid Tier 12
The gloves still look a little weird and the light effects might be a little off (color-wise) but it should be ok now.

    Nice, buff to Eternal Shadowspirit Diamond, and they're making it easier to reach unhittable cap for Palas again. ^^

    Squirrel (Nuts, sounds like one.) pet. I am happy.

    Edit: As someone has said above, 125 and 150 pet rewards are not final... I'm expecting a pet that looks like one of the new rare models.

    Pet biscuits for 125 and 150? What a slap in the face. At that point you actually have to work pretty hard to get some of those pets (farming, cross faction trading, grinding) or drop real world money on pets (TCG, collectors' editions, Blizzard Store). Poor form, Blizzard. Poor form.

    Like someone said already I don´t think they are final as they are exactly the same. I hope they will implement new Pets for these achievements.

    "Holy Shield: Using Shield of the Righteous or Inquisition increases the amount your chance to block melee attacks shield blocks by 5% for 20 sec."

    That's it, i'm done.

    I guess that means dreamcloth won't be used for any new higher-level recipes (if there are even higher-level recipes coming).

    On the flip side, I might finally start working on cranking out 26-slot bags for myself and my alts.

    Well, the new pet is for the 150 pets according to the tooltip, Bibi probably has the texts switched.

    I am happy about that. I wonder if we'll see mention about new mount collector rewards in a future 4.2 PTR update.

    Priest
    Flash Heal: New
    Finally Priests get a new heal: Flash Heal! This means they have 2 heals with the same name. Is this a good change?

    Somebody call an ambulance, we got a PTR datamined news rage!


    In all seriousness, anyone with a set of brains understands these changes are not final. Obviously they wouldnt hand out the same reward twice (Wondering however if the biscuits will be lost upon using them or a one time only biscuit like the ones from the TCG).

    IF, and I dount it, its wasn't a one time biscuit then that would be worth it i think.
