    Patch 4.0.3 on live servers this week

    Patch 4.0.3 on live servers this week
    Nothing official, but if everything goes as planned Patch 4.0.3 should be deployed on live servers this week. This is NOT THE PATCH CHANGING THE OLD WORLD, Patch 4.0.3a will do that and the one deployed this week is mostly here to pave the way for the shattering of Azeroth. Patch notes below.

    Deathy - Blizzcon Pet Animations
    Deathy was shipped without his animations and a lot of people are wondering how awesome their new friend is, hopefully you will find the answer in this short video.

    General
    • Much of the data being downloaded in patch 4.0.3 will pave the way for the shattering of Azeroth shortly before the release of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm on December 7.
    • The leader of Wintergrasp raids can no longer kick players from the raid (this change will also apply to Tol Barad in Cataclysm).
    • When in a Looking For Dungeon group, using an instance portal to that instance will now take players to the Looking For Dungeon entrance point instead of the normal destination of that portal. This will make it easier to return to the instance after dying in an LFD group.
    • Honorable Kills are no longer awarded for killing players below level 5.

    User Interface
    • Added pets to the new raid unit frames when displayed in party.
    • The default UI Scale has been altered so it will be set at a 1:1 pixel/texel ratio. This will result in a smaller UI appearance for higher resolution monitors.
    • Players may now adjust the local "Lag Tolerance" time for better precision of spell timing. This is an advanced-users-only feature found in the Interface Options (Combat) panel.

    Bug Fixes
    • Macros now handle spell variant transitions better. For example, Trap Launcher causes a different version of Frost Trap to be cast. Previously the macro system was not handling this transition properly.
    • Queuing in Looking For Dungeon for a different wing of the instance a player is already in now works properly. For example, a party can now queue for Scarlet Monastery - Library after completing Scarlet Monastery - Graveyard.
    • Killing High Interrogator Gerstahn before killing Emperor Dagran Thaurissan in a Blackrock Depths - Upper City random Looking For Dungeon run will now provide the proper reward. This also applies to Archmage Arugal and the Crown Chemical Company bosses in Shadowfang Keep during the Love is in the Air holiday event.
    • Repeatedly inspecting other players should now function correctly.
    • Area heal-over-time effects should no longer cause players to stand up.
    • Male blood elves have received a crash course in dancing and now know to stop dancing when they run.
    • Drake mounts have gotten bored with gliding and will flap their wings again when flying forward.
    • Druid Flight Form now properly appears in the Spellbook before Expert Riding is learned.
    • Sunfire's damage-over-time effect now deals damage at the same rate as Moonfire's damage- over-time effect.
    • GM Ticket messages should now displace buff icons instead of obscuring them.

    Nice with the bluepost thingy.

    That sounds like a terrible idea deleting all the post and stickies and compilations and guides people have posted? Why can't they at least partially migrate it to the new forums?

    I wonder if the fixes also include the SpiritGryphon Flight speed when you die. I hate to fly slower than running speed when I am progressing through an instance.

    If only they would fix a couple of things like:
    - Normal mount speed when dead
    - Not ressing with 1 HP after you released
    - Druid HoTs or Starfall not giving u 10 stacks on Sindra

    Shouldn't be to hard.

    This is great news for MMO-champion and its forums. They will be crazy busy now, mods have their work cut out!

    Because that requires work.

    What they could do is keep it a read-only indefinitely in its current design, and archive it.

    Uhh, they are only taking down the OLD forums, the new forums are up and running and that's what they want people to migrate to.

    That's what we all said six years ago about tab-targetting being fixed, maybe the next expansion after Cataclysm will fix it. =P
