General Class Bug Fixes
  • Players should no longer incorrectly receive a message stating they interrupted a spell cast when they did not.
  • Actions bars will no longer briefly disappear when characters that have a stance bar enter a vehicle.

Currency
Conquest & Honor Points
  • All existing Conquest Points in the Currency tab have been converted to Honor Points. Any points above the Honor Point cap must be spent within the next week before Season 10 starts. Once Season 10 begins, all Honor Points exceeding the 4,000 point cap will be converted into gold at a rate of 35 silver per point and mailed to characters.

Dungeon & Raids
The Bastion of Twilight
  • Bound Deluge's Frost Whirl ability now deals 50% less damage.
  • Arion
    • Chain Lightning damage and chain distance has been reduced.

Dungeon & Raid Bug Fixes
  • Bosses are now immune to the shrinking effect from Gnomish Shrink Ray.
  • The achievement Aberrant Behavior should no longer incorrectly reset its kill tracking during the Maloriak encounter in Blackwing Descent.
  • Anshal's Soothing Breeze should no longer cause combat pets to behave erratically in Throne of the Four Winds.
  • Raid Marker icons are now visible in all phases of boss encounters.

Items
  • Applicable tier 11 items now cost Justice Points.

PvP Items & Rewards
  • Applicable Season 9 items now cost Honor Points.

Quests & Creatures
  • Creatures will now display smooth energy regeneration for players.

User Interface
  • The Interface Options screens have changed size to match the Video and Audio screens. This allows for a larger Compact Unit Frames Profiles panel.

Technical
  • The Blizzard Launcher now utilizes Universal Plug and Play for port configuration. If your router supports UPnP it will automatically open the ports that it requires and your downloads will be unrestricted.

Still a lot, but would love to see the numbers next April when Guild Wars 2 and SWTOR are launched.
    Theyll go down about 20% for a month, then back up to where they were once everyone realises the newcomers arent "wow killers" after all

    Apart from the information you've seen posted here on MMO b4?

    Or u just saying that because you are excited that we are getting closer??
    Probably the fact that as time goes by, we get closer to the patch release date, hence, we are getting closer. In 2 more days, we'll be 2 more days closr to the patch release date, and then they'll be even more excited.

    Assuming the "applicable" parts are in reference to Blizzard's previous announcements that a lot of the season 9 stuff with ratings won't be going to honor and with T11 the pieces that need a token will still need one so no helm or shoulders.

    Because everyone has English as their mother tongue right? They should make these patchnotes in German and French.

    "Applicable"?

    Apparently UPnP crashes my router so I was instructed to disable it! ^^

    Something i'd like to know...
    Does the Currency think Conquest to Honor mean that
    Valor points will NOT be converted to Justice points on 4.2?
    Cause thats what i used to think was the case until now...

    Here's what it looks like:
    VP will be converting to JP on 4.2. Any excess of 4k will be converted to cash immediately.
    CP will be converting to HP on 4.2. Any excess of 4k will be converted to cash when the next arena season starts (1 week later, i.e. 6/28), so you have a week to buy down below the cap.

    Can justice points still be converted to honor in 4.2?

    I've heard no indication that they can't. But just to be sure, I'll be making sure my HP is capped with converted JP next Monday.

    I see, so there's no way to farm VP so i can get all available 4.2 VP items on launch?
    Damnit...
    Yay for more VP farming... >_>

    No. The reason for this is because there is only a weekly cap for VP and CP, not a total cap. If VP and CP did not transfer over, players "late" to the season/tier would have an advantage over others who've been grinding and gearing up throughout (or someone could actually spend an entire season doing low MMR arena accumulating points and start off the next season with a full set of Conquest gear).

    Not only uPnP, even to sort you own chars/toon took Blizz devs 5/6 years to make.

    ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO REMOVE THAT IS FUN?
    Cataclysm is all about removing (all the) fun from the game.

    Wait, according to most forum posts, I thought BC, WotLK, and Cataclysm removed all the fun, since Vanilla was the best ever...?
