  • Pet Defensive stance will no longer cause the pet to assist the player while a vanity pet is active.

Druid (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
  • Rake should again be able to trigger Primal Fury.

Dungeons & Raids
Firelands
  • Characters who make for a good Dinner Time should no longer be ported to Ancient Core Hounds they are not in combat with when the ability’s effects end.
  • Fire Scorpion and Flamewaker corpses no longer provide loot or reputation when they’re eaten by Hell Hounds and Fire Turtles.
  • Unstable Magmas are now gaining energy properly from the Flamewaker Animators.
  • Alysrazor
    • Voracious Hatchlings will now Imprint on a new target if their current target dies.
  • Majordomo Fandral Staghelm
    • Flame Scythe now properly hits pets.
    • Fandral can now cast Searing Seeds and Burning Orbs while moving.
  • Ragnaros
    • Several locations which could be used to avoid damage from Engulfing Flames have been adjusted so they’re no longer safe spots.
    • Combustible will always be reapplied to Living Meteors, even if the attacking character dies as a Meteor Impact occurs.
    • Living Meteors will now become frozen by Cenarius under all conditions when transitioning into phase 4 on Heroic difficulty.
    • If a Living Meteor is frozen in the lava pool during the transition into phase 4 on Heroic difficulty, it will teleport on a player after the stun ends, but will no longer explode immediately. Players now have a 2-second window to escape the meteor’s melee range.
    • Living Meteors will gain the Living Meteor Transform buff once frozen in the Breadth of Frost trap, even if a meteor is knocked into it.
    • If a Living Meteor's fixated target drops aggro via Feign Death, the meteor will target the pet, and then select a new non-pet target upon which to fixate.
    • Ragnaros now enrages after 18 minutes in all raid difficulties and sizes, up from 15 minutes.

Quests & Creatures
Hyjal Regrowth & Molten Front
  • Wounded Hyjal Defenders should no longer sometimes spawn in with full health and in a standing position when players are on the quest Burn Victims.
  • Molten Lords no longer become tapped by the first player who attacks them with any of the Trained Fire Hawk's abilities while on the quest Fire in the Skies, allowing for any player who dealt damage to the Molten Lord to gain quest credit upon its death.
  • Windcallers now respawn within 1 minute on average for the quest Into the Fire when both are rendered inactive. Additionally, players will only experience a maximum of approximately 75 seconds of a delay before they are able to initiate the escort event.

    • Flame Scythe now properly hits pets.
    Oh man. Now those top guilds will actually have to kill it instead of have their Beast Mastery Turtle pet solo tank the entire fight and never leave Scorpion phase.

    Looks like they fixed Ragnaros Phase 4 bugs so we should finally see a kill.

    Ragnaros isn't "nerfed". He's had his bugs fixed, and is actually killable at all.

    Enrage time was never a bug.

    It was nerfed.

    And you have a clue that enrage timer is a reason that he didn't have been killed yet or your guild fail so much that you hit enrage timer on normal?

    Proof? Look, he still melees his main aggro target, be it a prot warrior or a turtle. Do you know how hard a turtle gets hit? Cleave damage aside, that turtle is going to get one shot unless you chain cooldowns, and I mean like 6 Disc Priest worth of cooldowns.

    Until somebody shows video proof of a turtle tanking Fandral for more than like ~20 seconds I'm not believing it; even though I doubt many guilds did this.

    +20% time to kill Ragnaros... Now that could be helpful in heroic I guess

    The enrage timer doesn't mean anything, I don't think the fight lasts 15 min...

    Em what? First time i heared that turtles can eat scorpions. Only thing eaten i have seen was a flamewalker with 7 dogs on him.
