    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.

    • Player should no longer be unable to open the gates to complete the dungeon due to NPC allies dying during the troll invasion event.
    • The Zul'farrak Zombies and Skeletons of Zum'rah, associated with Witch Doctor Zum'rah, now clean up properly when the encounter is reset or the boss dies.

    Items
    • 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.

    Whether you watch via the free HD live stream or dive into the crowd in person at the Multikino in Warsaw—this schedule is what you want to study to get the ultimate experience out of these two days.



    • On Saturday, watch the contestants’ arduous climb through the double-elimination brackets. We expect skilful manoeuvres, all-engulfing battles, and combatants emerging heroically from this clash of the best.
    • On Sunday you’ll be able to witness one grand final after the other. Steel yourselves for this feast of top-notch eSports entertainment and stay tuned for the celebration of the grand winners.

    See you in Warsaw (or else you’ll see us).

    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)

    I’m sure adding a trigger at 10% HP to despawn a few mobs kept the entire raid development team busy all week.
    I'm in the "I don't have an obnoxiously large signature" club.

    I dont care if it was 1 man hour only, it was 1 man hour too much. They should not change something because some DK finds a smart way of beating LK solo, this was not a fix it was just a change of something that was already perfect. The instance is designed for 10 and/or 25 people so if you decide to solo it and want your loot you better make sure you kill those valkyrs.

    Yes it was probably a 'fix' done quickly but it shows that blizzard got their priorities wrong, they could have fixed trash farming in FL by letting mobs run 40% faster so that shamans cant outrun them with ghost wolf form but instead blizzard decided to fix something inside ICC HERP DERP.
