    Patch 4.1 Public Test Realm Notes - March 22

    Patch 4.1 Public Test Realm Notes - March 22
    The Patch 4.1 PTR Notes have been updated once again! My favorite part?


    • All trade goods available for purchase with Honor or Justice Points from the associated commodities vendors have had their prices reduced by 50%.
    • Maelstrom Crystals are now available for purchase with Honor or Justice Points from the associated commodities vendors.

    PvP

    Death Knight (Forums / 3.3.5 Talent Calculator / Cataclysm Talent Calculator / Beta Skills/Talents)
    Unholy
    • Desecration no longer triggers when an applicable strike hits a snare-immune target. This is primarily to avoid unnecessary spell effect clutter during boss encounters.

    Mage (Forums / 3.3.5 Talent Calculator / Cataclysm Talent Calculator / Beta Skills/Talents)

    Frost
    • Fingers of Frost bonus damage applied to Ice Lance has been increased to 25%, up from 15%.

    Paladin (Forums / 3.3.5 Talent Calculator / Cataclysm Talent Calculator / Beta Skills/Talents)
    Holy
    • Illuminated Healing shield duration is now 15 seconds, up from 8 seconds. In addition, Illuminated Healing has been increased to provide 1.5% effect per mastery, up from 1.25%.

    Shaman (Forums / 3.3.5 Talent Calculator / Cataclysm Talent Calculator / Beta Skills/Talents)
    Enhancement
    • Improved Fire Nova has been redesigned and replaced by a talent called Seasoned Winds. When an enemy spell cast is successfully prevented with Wind Shear, the shaman gains magical resistance (in an amount equal to what a protection totem/aura would grant, stacking with such buffs) to the spell school(s) of the interrupted spell (except for Holy spells), lasting 10 seconds.

    Dungeons & Raids
    Dire Maul North

    The Mechanar

    Stratholme
    • Postboxes no longer require keys to open, because really, who locks their postboxes anymore when they're all undead? It's just people sending coupons for brains anyway.
    • The Postmaster now spawns when 3 of any postbox are opened.

    Uldaman
    • The Staff of Prehistoria is no longer required to open the door in the Map Room.
    • Baelog's chest has been given new loot. If it's grey it's good, right?

    Zul'Farrak

    Guilds
    • The amount of guild experience rewarded for rated Battleground guild group wins has been dramatically increased.
    • Players are now rewarded guild experience for Honorable Kills in the field.
    • Players are now rewarded guild experience for Battleground wins in Battleground brackets up to level 80.
    • Arena teams are now awarded guild experience for wins. The entire team must be members of the same guild to earn this experience.

    Items
    • All trade goods available for purchase with Honor or Justice Points from the associated commodities vendors have had their prices reduced by 50%.
    • Maelstrom Crystals are now available for purchase with Honor or Justice Points from the associated commodities vendors.

    PvP
    Arenas
    • The Ring of Valor has returned! It should now be playable again in the Arena map rotation.
    • New starting areas have been added for Ring of Valor. Players will no longer enter the Arena on the elevator. It's been removed. Instead players will start in a room at opposite ends of the Arena.

    Quests & Creatures
    • Loot from the creatures Garr, Julak-Doom, Mobus, and Poseidus has been adjusted to be commensurate to their rarity and invested effort.

    User Interface
    • The Guild Finder has been implemented! While we are continuing to add final polish to this feature, we welcome all focused testers to give it a go. Feedback can be provided here.

    Frostbolt damage has been increased by 10%.
    Good I was worrying about them being to under powered.

    You must not PvP.
    I will not say that I am guilty, for that denotes shame. Nor will I protest innocence, for I claim no such. Let the comedy begin.

    Hurray for expensive crystals becoming pretty worthless. Yet another way Blizz likes to interfere with the economy

    i like the determination to make Holy pallys' mastery worthwhile, it just hasnt even registered as useful at all so far, hopefully buffing it a little at a time will work out ok

    Indeed... I don't think that I will ever understand Blizzard's logic... Seriously...
