    World First Glory of the Icecrown Raider (25), 3.3.3 Notes Update

    World First Glory of the Icecrown Raider (25) by Exorsus
    The russian guild Экзорсус (EU-Ревущий фьорд) is back and was the first guild in the world to complete Glory of the Icecrown Raider (25 player) a few hours ago (and before the zone-wide buff was activated in Europe, if you're wondering), they were rewarded with a brand new Icebound Frostbrood Vanquisher. They also got the World First Glory of the Icecrown Raider (10) 2 weeks ago. Congratulations to them!



    Icecrown Citadel Raid Buffs Active
    The zone-wide buff is now official.
    [blizzquote="Zarhym;http://blue.mmo-champion.com/1/23425467230-icecrown-citadel-raid-buffs-active.html] As many of you may have noticed, the Icecrown Citadel raid buffs have been activated. These buffs increase total health, healing done and damage dealt by 5% for all raid members. In addition, the number of attempts on the final bosses of each wing and the Lich King allotted raid groups on Heroic difficulty has been increased to 35. These buffs -- referred to as Strength of Wrynn for the Alliance and Hellscream’s Warsong for the Horde -- can be deactivated by speaking to your faction’s leader at Light’s Hammer. [/blizzquote"]

    Patch 3.3.3 Notes Update
    The Patch 3.3.3 Notes have been updated with a couple of extra class changes and clarifications.

    Druid (Forums / Talent Calculator)
    • Mangle: The debuff from this talent now lasts 60 seconds, up from 12 seconds.

    Mage (Forums / Talent Calculator)
    • Empowered Fire: This talent now also applies to Pyroblast damage.
    • Torment the Weak: This talent now also applies to Pyroblast damage.

    Rogue (Forums / Talent Calculator)
    • Serrated Blades: This talent now allows the rogue to ignore up to 3/6/9% of the target's armor, rather than a fixed amount of armor ignored per level of the rogue.

    Warrior (Forums / Talent Calculator)
    • Improved Revenge: This talent can no longer trigger a stun, and instead causes Revenge to strike an additional target for 50/100% of Revenge's damage.
    Arms
    • Trauma: The debuff from this talent now lasts 60 seconds, up from 15 seconds.

    Glyphs
    Druid
    • Glyph of Mangle: This glyph now provides 10% increased damage done by Mangle instead of increasing the duration of the debuff.

    Items
    • Priest Tier-10 4-Piece Healing Set Bonus: Redesigned. This bonus now increases the effectiveness of the caster's Power Word: Shield and Renew spells by 5%.
    • Shaman Tier-10 4-Piece Elemental set Bonus: This bonus has been slightly adjusted to account for the fact that haste now modifies Flame Shock's periodic damage ticks. The bonus now makes the shaman's Lava Burst cause Flame Shock to tick at least two additional times before expiring.

    Technical
    • Frame Rate: A maximum capacity of 200 frames per second has been added.

    Grats to Exorsus!

    On a side note, the frame rate change seems pretty pointless.

    isn't alot of the stuff blizzard does pointless?
    Unfortunately, until the people at Blizzard take time to quit explaining why they are right and anyone who disagrees is wrong, they are not going to even hear everyone speaking out desperately trying to warn them the ship is sinking.
    the problems driving players from WoW aren't content or the age of the game, the problem is how the game experience and design philosophy are being undermined by Blizzard's hubris and greed.

    Priest Tier-10 4-Piece Healing Set Bonus: Redesigned. This bonus now increases the effectiveness of the caster's Power Word: Shield and Renew spells by 5%.

    yeah, 5%!
    anyway, still an improvement compared to the shitty old bonus

    Grats comrades!

    Sure, redesign Ele and Priest healing set 4pieces and leave the horrible DPS warr bonus untouched. : The weaker version will override the stronger buff of Bloodsurge from what I hear and it's still a pretty bad bonus - 20% of 20% is 4% chance.

    In Soviet Russia achievements complete you... or something. Grats!

    Also, those Pyroblast changes look promising, a decent buff for sure.

    No, that's not a nuke. That's all the feral druids in the world going "YEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS" at the same time.

    it's supposed to fix a lot of lag with the combat logs by getting rid of the reapplying buffs/de buffs on bosses and stuff, not to mention this brings the need for an arms warrior for feral dps MUCH lower.

    I don't like playing as arcane, my lag makes fire much much much more fun
