Item Sets

  • The Smoldering Rune buff from the death knight tier-12 2-piece set bonus is now properly cleared off of the character if he/she does not have the set bonus the next time it ticks for runic power.
  • The Spirit buff gained from the 4-piece priest tier-11 set will be lost if the priest casts any spell or uses any ability while not wearing the set.
  • The warrior tier-12 4-piece damage-dealing set bonus is now properly activating, even if a Mortal Strike or Raging Blow attack is fully absorbed.

PvP
Strand of the Ancients
  • Stampeding Roar (druid spell) no longer grants a speed boost to Demolishers.

Quests & Creatures
Hyjal Regrowth & Molten Front
  • Molten Lords should no longer stay tapped by the first player who damages them while on the bombing run for the quest Fire in the Skies.

    It doesnt matter if it only took 15 minutes there are still things out there a lot more important such as shamans farming trash packs in Firelands. They can litterally become wow millionaires with just a few hours of trash farming and all you would have to do to prevent this is change the run speed of the two mobs from 100% to 140%

    First if shamans are becoming MILLIONAIRES farming FL trash, well good for them. They haven't had any love from this game in a long time. Somehow I doubt that's the case.

    Second, you're just whining about something that doesn't matter. They fixed it - so what. I'm sure the decision they faced was not "fix all current content" or "make a tiny almost inconsequential ICC change."

    Honestly I'm pretty sure the next hero class is Whiner and most of the people on here are going to roll several....

The instance is designed for 10 and/or 25 people so if you decide to solo it and want your loot you better make sure you kill those valkyrs.

    Yes it was probably a 'fix' done quickly but it shows that blizzard got their priorities wrong, they could have fixed trash farming in FL by letting mobs run 40% faster so that shamans cant outrun them with ghost wolf form but instead blizzard decided to fix something inside ICC HERP DERP.
    You really need to get outside more.

    In the last 10%, LK doesn't have an aggro table (I don't think). Either that or Terenas has aggro. Either way, nobody is tanking at the end and the valks carried the dk off the platform.

    My uncle works at Blizzard, and he said that because of the Val'kyr fix,work on Patch 4.3 was pushed back several months, and the Pandaren expansion won't be released until 2015, true facts.

    What makes you think that the LK change was made instead of something else?A bug was present, it was fixed. Stop trying to make a huge issue out of nothing.Man, people even complain about bugs being fixed these days

    There's baseless speculation going around that it could be a reward for a 150 mount meta,or a TCG reward,but no one knows for sure.

    Maybe they acknowledge the feat he did and noticed the bug, besideas no point complaing i bet they just did a copy/paste on some code BAM DONE.

    quit your whining i think the fact he solod with valkrs is an achievement enough even if they didnt die and it was self gratitude mionelol did it for not loot so stop having a moan about it and its no like it has any affect on your either hell im enjoing the fact people can farm firelands trash, more epics = lower value = easier on people.

    there was. But blizz puts in a bunch of colorations for a lot of things that never get used, or don't get used till later.

    Loled at the Valk change. And while it currently only affects DKs, there will probably be others soloing it in future patches/expansions. If there is a bug, does it matter when Blizzard fixes it?
