Patch 4.1 Hotfixes - May 4

  • An issue was preventing some players from properly mailing account bound items to other characters on the same realm and account. If you are still experiencing this issue, we recommend you log into both characters before sending the mail. The characters don’t need to be online at the same time for this to work.
  • Children’s Week quests should no longer be unavailable to players who recently transferred factions.
  • Flying wisp form and flying mounts, both living and dead, can enter bodies of water smoothly.

  • Spells or talents which provide pushback protection should now be functioning correctly (i.e. Burning Soul for mages or Suppression for warlocks). This time we mean it.

Rogue (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
  • Shadowstep is instantly teleporting players behind their target when the target is in motion.

Dungeons & Raids
  • Call to Arms rewards will now be displayed in the Dungeon Finder UI while a player is in the dungeon so they know what rewards they will get.

Throne of the Four Winds
  • Damage from Ice Storm in phase 1 of Al’Akir is ticking twice per second, which was causing excessive damage on Heroic difficulty. To compensate, the damage per tick has been reduced for Heroic difficulty.

  • Players are now able to get a random Darkmoon card inside of a Sealed Scroll Case, instead of always getting a Darkmoon Card of Destruction.

Quests & Creatures
  • The Innkeeper's Daughter can no longer be targeted for healing or harmful effects.
  • Players now fail The Crucible of Carnage: The Earl of Evisceration when killed by Lord Geoffery Tulvan during the encounter. Players are able to pick up the quest after it is failed and the event starts again without issue.

    Shadow priest:
    2piece - Now it gets more obvious why they nerfed shadowfiend damage at first place, but 75 sec seems too much and if we add MF reduce this gonna make SF "spammable" don't think this gonna last since it's gonna be a huge DPS gain
    4piece - Hmm this gonna be theorycrafted to death and it's a big single-target DPS boost that we kinda need at the moment, a ~1.15 cast MB with 3sec CD, holy shit

    Death Knight
    2piece - Sort of disease-less Blood model, seems nice.

    4Piece: AM while moving, at last something to make Arcane viable in heavy movement fights

    I´d rather have 1-2 more char slots, bank-toons are handy.

    Mage 4 set seems kinda meh.
  1. Clockwork Pinkie's Avatar
    Changing the order is nice. Whichever toon ends up being last now sure will be pissed at me . I have a feeling we're getting closer to more than 10 toons per server.

    Pretty neat tier bonuses, except for uhm *cough* erm, a lot of fire procs. Fire, fire, everywhere. It's still neat and I enjoy some of the creativity they put out, just saying they are really playing up the fire aspect of firelands.

    Lovely :]

    I can see the shaman tier bonus that has a 40% chance of riptide heal to cause us to gain 1% of our base mana to be seen as alittle over powered due to riptide being able to be placed on 3 targets at a time. But i can dig it
  1. Uuker's Avatar
    Omg awesome DK bonuses
  1. Ohforfsake's Avatar
    Feral 2pc - ok, 4pc - wtf?
    Balance 2pc - no idea, 4pc - zomg.

    Casterclysm continues the same tune - screw melee, buff casters.

    I have fucking suggested the bloody Arcane Missiles being castable while moving in at least two threads on this forum. Oh well, it's good to see that it came into the game.

    * Rogue 4 Pieces - Your Tricks of the Trade ability also causes you to gain a 25% increase to one of your combat ratings at random for 30 sec.

    Random? I hope they'll fix it to mastery for assa and haste for combat/sub. Don't want to get a 25% crit rating increase (too much useless). Anyway a free boost is always accepted
