General
  • Balloon pets can no longer be sold to vendors.
  • Flight points in Outlands should correctly display for characters created after the release of patch 4.2.

Classes
  • Melee auto-attacks should properly trigger trinkets.

Druid (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
  • Primal Fury is correctly triggered when Rake gets a critical hit, and is putting an extra combo point on the target.
  • Starfall should no longer strike targets with which the druid is not in combat.

Hunter (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
  • Burning Adrenaline is properly removing the focus cost of Arcane Shot.

Rogue (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
  • Mutilate should now properly trigger trinkets.

Warrior (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
  • Deep Wounds should no longer incorrectly apply double damage when certain buffs are present on the warrior.

Dungeons & Raids
Blackrock Spire
  • The Scarshield Quartermaster is properly flagged as a quest NPC and not a rare spawn.

Firelands
  • Burning Orb attack range has been increased for the Majordomo Staghelm encounter.
  • The criteria for the achievement Do a Barrel Roll! reset properly after a failed attempt on Alysrazor.
  • Smoldering Essences are now properly applied to Firelands bosses and can be syphoned, even if the only raid member that is on step 13 of the legendary quest line dies during the encounter.
  • Players should never get Rage of Ragnaros on Heroic difficulty. Rage of Ragnaros will only be given on normal difficulty if someone on the legendary quest line has 250 shards. Heart of Flame should always be given on Heroic difficulty, even if a player doesn’t have Rage of Ragnaros, but does have 250 shards.

Icecrown Citadel

Zul’Farrak

  • The weapon speed of the Masterwork Elementium Deathblade has been reduced to 3.5, down from 3.8.
  • Ricket's Magnetic Fireball now shares a burst cooldown with other on-use trinkets.
  • Unheeded Warning now grants 1926 attack power, instead of 680 weapon damage.

Item Sets
  • The Burning Treant and Fiery Imp pets summoned by the Balance druid and warlock tier-12 sets now have reduced damage taken from area-of-effect spells, consistent with other combat pets.
  • 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.

    Now I dunno what Blizz is thinking doing this in Poland but this means I can watch a WoW tournament at some normal time instead of having the entire weekend fucked up due to not sleeping at night. So hell yea! Also the LK change is strange because to my knowledge Raegwynn said that if you taunt DK after ress then you're tank once again and they won't grab you.

    My guess is that the hotfix was already applied in when Raegwyn did it. If you watch my video, you'll see that I *do* taunt the LK, but it doesn't matter I get thrown away regardless
    On his vid, he gets grabbed, but the Val'kyrs release him instantly.

    Blizzard usually doesn't list hotfixes exactly when they go live (espcially for minor hotfixes such as this one), and they can have a few days of difference, so that wouldn't be too surprising.

    Its sad that the mount uses the proto-drake mount skelaton, Blizzard could have made a unique skelaton for the mount but nonetheless its still awesome looking & grats to Ascendance on their world's first

    They grab you after you get resurrected since there is no longer an aggro table. So you have to sit there and wait ten minutes while Fordring hits LK for ticks of damage at a time, then release after LK gets killed, run back, and get the loot.

    Am I the only one who thinks this is a disgrace? Blizzard actually spend time and resources on fixing something that only affects DKs soloing LK (a boss that was never meant to be soloed)
    Yup, you probably are.

    im sorta disappointed over the fact that it is purple i had expected a green one:< however it still looks cool and grats to ascendance!
  1. lordzed83's Avatar
    Gz ascen. Still in shape i see
  1. LordSothe's Avatar
    Still disappointed they used the Proto Drake skeleton, it clips horribly. Even if they couldn't be bothered to make a unique one, there are still others that would have looked better...
  1. tilgare's Avatar
    Oh, it's purple. That is very confusing. The purple and green hawks are okay, it's the real Firehawk I want. xD

    Grats on world first, enjoy your beautiful birds. =D

    Any particular reason why 2H users are being shit on? Everyone else can get craftables/BoE items of much higher standard
