  • Increased the number of crafting materials found in Boxes of Gnomeregan Salvage and slightly increased the drop rate of Grime-Encrusted Salvage throughout Gnomeregan.
  • Druid
    • Berserk now also increases the number of targets struck by Lacerate while it is active.
    • Starsurge bonus damage to Starfire increased to 80% (was 66%). Corrected a bug causing this bonus damage to be lower than intended at level 40.
    • Swipe now scales with attack power, gaining 10% of attack power as damage.
    • Threat caused by Swipe greatly increased.
    • Rip duration increased to 16 seconds (was 12 seconds).
  • Hunter
    • Raptor Strike damage when the Melee Specialist rune is active is now normalized weapon damage.
  • Paladin
    • Fixed an issue where Fiery Weapon enchantment and Seal of Martyrdom were triggering each other. Neither can be triggered by the other any longer.
    • Fixed an issue where Fiery Blaze and Fiery Weapon enchantments could trigger or be triggered by Seal of Martyrdom. Those interactions do not happen anymore.
  • Priest
    • Mind Spike damage increased by 10%.
    • Void Plague damage increased by 10%.
    • Shadow Word: Death base damage before modifiers decreased by 40% and spellpower coefficient adusted to 42.9% (was 64.3%).
    • Developers’ notes: Overall, this should result in a 33-40% damage reduction on Shadow Word: Death, depending on the amount of spellpower the priest has. Shadow Word: Death has been doing a larger percentage of overall priest damage than intended, and we feel like this could begin to put additional pressure on healers in PvE, as spellpower gear improves and the damage that priests inflict on themselves continues to scale upwards. It could also prove to be increasingly oppressive in PvP, as it’s an instant attack that can be used on the move, from range, with very little counterplay.
  • Rogue
    • Shuriken Toss bounce range reduced to 10 yards (was 15 yards).
      • Developers’ notes: This should reduce the chance of it bouncing a little too far and pulling extra packs in dungeons. It now matches the range of other chain spells like Chain Lightning and Avenger's Shield.
  • Shaman
    • Fixed an issue where Fire Nova did not benefit properly from Elemental Mastery.
    • The Dual-Wield Specialization rune now provides 50% bonus damage to your offhand weapon swings.
    • Lava Lash now gains 50% increased damage if Flametongue Weapon is imbued on your offhand.
    • The proc chance of Maelstrom Weapon is now roughly 50% higher when your main hand weapon or your two-hand weapon is imbued with Windfury Weapon.

    Sure thing. Now can you check the updates for your random wow variation somewhere else and leave the mainpage for real MMOs. Thank you.
