  • Shirts and tabards can now be purchased from Larah Treebender at any Infinite Bazaar, Mei Steadypaw outside the Shrine of Two Moons and the Shrine of Seven Stars, and Hanchoon Yi at Paw'don Village, Honeydew Village, Shrine of Two Moons, and Shrine of Seven Stars.
  • Fixed a bug preventing Timerunners with a legendary Infinite Cloak of Potential from accessing Ordon Sanctuary as intended.
  • Fixed an issue with the spawning of Voress'thalik which prevented the completion of "Devastation Below".
  • Fixed an issue preventing players from learning Amber Pterrordax.
  • Fixed a bug causing Gulp Frogs to unintentionally drop Lesser Charms of Good Fortune.
  • Enemy power scaling, particularly in group content, has been adjusted to be less aggressive. This is particularly applicable in the player level 40 - 70 range, before players have been able to power up their cloak, upgrade their gems, and increase their item level.
  • Gear drop-rates have been improved from world rares, rare elites, and quests. This will help players who have had their item levels fall behind as leveling speed increases, especially at higher levels when cloak bonus experience is powered up.
    • Developers’ notes: This will also increase player Bronze and appearance acquisition by increasing the number of items to place into the Unraveling Sands for additional Bronze.
  • The first-time bonus for queueing each LFR wing will grant a Thread of Experience in addition to the existing Lesser Bronze Cache.
    • Developers’ notes: This should improve LFR as a viable choice for leveling main characters and alts, without players feeling like they need to grind the same LFR wing repeatedly.
  • We have added bonus experience to each boss in normal dungeons and scenarios so they are a viable alternative to questing. Bonus experience has also been adding to the last boss of Heroic Scenarios. Heroic dungeon bosses will continue to drop bonus experience.
  • We’ve increased the number of prismatic gems dropped from bosses in normal and heroic scenarios and dungeons.
    • Developers’ notes: The increased stamina offered by Legendary Prismatic gems boosts player survivability considerably.
  • We have increased the Bronze granted from all qualities of Bronze Caches by 25%.
    • Developers’ notes: These caches are available from a wide variety of sources, both solo and group. This includes the Minor Bronze Cache, Lesser Bronze Cache, Bronze Cache, and Greater Bronze Cache.
  • Fixed an issue where Sha-Skin Vestment was marked as Cosmetic instead of Cloth armor.

Cataclysm Classic

  • Players may skip directly to the beginning of Vashj'ir using a portal in their respective cities.
    • “Vashj'ir: Call of Duty” will remain available to players who skipped directly to “Sea Legs”.
  • Hunter
    • Ancient Hysteria from Hunter Core Hound pets has been renamed Primal Rage. The debuff it causes has been renamed from Insanity to Fatigued.
    • Fixed a bug preventing pets from displaying in the Stable as intended.
  • Mage
    • When Combustion gains damage from Ignite, that Ignite damage will not get increased a second time from Fire Mage Mastery Flashburn. It was already increased once by Flashburn when first applied.

    Adding 25% more to Bronze Caches is cute, especially with HC Dungeons and ~400 Bronze for basicly a 25min run with additional 25min queue time.

    While froggers farmed 70k / hour for 2 days and gained the same equivalent of threads to the cloak aswell.

    And this while frog exploiting streamers are shaming the legit players in MOP REMIX, for beeing to late to exploit.
    => Pet-battle XP exploits were banned and dealt with roll-backs in HOURS, why this shitshow is dealt with so little consequences is hard to understand.

    So have the devs just dropped SoD entirely at this point? No class balance changes in weeks, none of the fixes they talked about are in

    lol

    Only change, that is really needed: Garrosh items should drop from LFR, have some other alternative way of obtaining or be completely removed. That's it. After that casual players wouldn't need player power, so other changes wouldn't be needed, like making cloak account-wide and increasing stats gaining.

    Frog was not an exploit, it was working as intended when MOP was relevant. When they added bronze to the loot list and then made it so you could buy rep / etc with lesser charms that's where the problem is. The root cause is lack of testing, no Q&A and no-one at Blizzard aware / remembering this.

    A solution would be to make bosses drop more bronze than they do now, fix the scaling (doubt they can, its never worked right since inception) but i don't think they will. This is the ONLY content they will provide till TWW.

    Reset frog farmer cloaks to highest thread achievement baseline.

    Love how the frog farming wasn't a exploit in MOP, but now in remix it is. What kind of BULLSHIT is that. So the devs f up and now it is a exploit. Let's just blame our F up on the players playing our content.

    How about fixing the Isle of Thunder quest where you gotta jump from bird to bird just RANDOMLY sending you back to base, forcing you to leave the solo scenario and come back?

    Just did this scenario without issue, only press the button when there's an enemy bird to jump to.

    Please never share your ideas of a good time if you think mindless frog farming is "content".
