    Ninja changes

    It's that time again!

    What changes have you noticed that did not make it into the patch notes? I found two so far:

    - When flying into a no-fly indoor area, the momentum from dismounting now propels you forward instead of just dropping you.
    - In LFR, you no longer see 0/6 bosses. (Overdue in my opinion)

    EDIT: Full list on wowpedia - http://www.wowpedia.org/Patch_5.1.0_...ented_changes)

    I just noticed the flying one as well. I hope it's not a bug, it's super convenient on my monk to travel somewhere high in the sky then dismount into Zen Flight just before I hit the ground!

    Biggest one I've noticed: the Cyclonic Inspiration buff appears automatically whenever you enter your faction's respective Shrine instead of you needing to pass by the NPC in the main lobby first.

    Blingtron now also has a dialog option that turns you into a rather nice costume.

    And this next one is obvious, but Halfhill flight master has moved!

    The Spirit of Harmony exchange vendor now only gives you two Golden Lotus per Spirit instead of three.

    The bot near the engineering only auctioneer now works as a bank; and the engineering supply vendor near them now provides repair.

    They still didn't fix the bug that dismounts players from randomly falling off mounts flying over redridge mountains :S

    /p is now for chatting with your party (regardless of instance)
    /i is now for chatting with your instance group (regardless of party)

    so for example, if you group with 2 other guildies the three of you can use /p to chat even when you are in a 5-man with 2 cross-realm random pugs.
    or you can use /i and all 5 members of the instance group will be able to read the chat.

    i think.

    this was datamined, but not in the patch notes as far as i can tell.

    Yeah, my UI screamed "You are not in a raid" at me repeatedly 15x in a row at a time yesterday when I was in LFR. I was wondering what was going on there, but I was too busy fretting over the fact that my chi tracking addons were not working and I had no clue how much of my resource I actually had to heal with. This was, apparently, because "Chi" was renamed (or wasn't it named back in early beta?) "Light Force" and addons had no way to recognize it anymore.

    That and one of my healing spells was completely ninja nerfed even though it wasn't in patch notes.

    -Companion pets no longer spawn when you are in combat.

    I didn't notice the flying one, but I did notice the LFR one. I guess people complained enough about having groups that would take forever to fill because no one wanted an in-progress LFR.

    There are new graphics for tiller farming on plants to make it easier to notice that you have not tended to that plant. Now smothered and runty plants give off 3 pulsing yellow lines to visually let you know that one needs to be tended. I have in the past overlooked a runty one several times but I've never missed a smothered plant. Its a nice fix.

    I've also heard something about being able to harvest more times during the day but I've yet to confirm this in-game.

    I'm the opposite, I am more than happy to yank that 90 valor for the final boss, reque up while doing dailies and then kill the first 2 bosses and if the party is rolling over the bosses pretty well I will stick around for another 45 valor for an additional 5-7 mins of work. If I get 7 dailies between each que I pull in 205 valor in an hour.

    All the new pets still all despawn after you take off on a flying mount though... even the flying ones. You can resummon them again in the air, but when you land and take off again they despawn again.
    Likewise they still seem to cancel any action you dismount with when they're summoned (very annoying as a Rogue, when I dismount by using stealth, then instantly unstealth again as a pet appears)

    Not really. People have a right to know where they join at.
    Anyway, there's a fix for it.

    So now I know why the warrior in my group couldnt hear me but my guildies could.

    For the sake of long term conditioning /p should of stayed as the whole party chat and another /letter being the only queue group channel.

    I know ill be doing /p for months.

    I would love to see companion pets banned from Dungeons, BGs, and raids. Nothing more annoying than being deep in a fight and getting startled by someone's moth floating into my screen. If it is a proc from a trink like Ghost Iron Dragonling, fine. But to have your Pokemons running around during actual fighting is ridiculous. The ONLY exception should be Argent Squire, and Guild Page/Herald as they are bankers / vendors and serve a purpose.
