    Patch 4.0.6 Notes Update, 4.0.6 Hotfixes, Haste Bug

    Haste Issue Causing Ability Errors
    Originally Posted by Bashiok (Blue Tracker)
    An apparent last-minute bug which was not found on the PTR before the patch was finalized has caused the client and server to disagree on the way haste affects resource generation. This bug will manifest itself in the UI showing a player they have enough resources to use an ability, but the server correctly prevents it as they in fact do not. A death knight for example might see a rune light up that isn’t actually available so when they use the ability, it won’t fire. A rogue may think they have enough energy to use Sinister Strike, but they can’t actually afford it so when they push the button, they will get an error. This bug could affect rogues, death knights, hunters and Feral druids, because these characters all gain more resources from haste. It will also affect buffs that affect attack speed, such as Slice and Dice, Windfury, Icy Talons, and Hunting Party, but also attack speed lowering effects like Thunder Clap. We're currently working on a fix.

    Patch 4.0.6 Notes Update
    Blizzard added a couple of notes after the release of the retail patch notes, let's call it the "ahah! I'm in your raid nerfing your bosses!" update.

    Very happy about all the changes to 10-man heroic modes. Warranted and good changes.

    Slowly backing to brainless bushing buttons. Some unnecessary nerfs for bosses ~~

    I could have sworn they made CS generate HoPo on misses on purpose. The raid was pretty jarring tonight having no idea this change would take place.

    Also, for the record, I hereby irrevocably and openly declare bullshit. Verily so.

    Not all are nerfs...
    Council: Nerf AND Buffs
    Cho'gall: 10-men tuning
    Halfus: 10-men tuning and maybe a buff, since now you perhaps have to do more damage at all in the same time (AND smite-priests will be nerfed for this encounter 'cause the core-mechanic for working them so fine was changed)
    Valiona: Nerf and Buff
    Al'akir: Fix
    Conclave: Doesn't matter, since the debuff doesn't do anything important at all
    Magmaw and Maloriak: Nerfs
    Atramedes: Buff
    Omnotron: Buff and Nerf
    Nef: Tuning

    Halfus will be much easier since you will be able kill one drake by one. No more needing for crazy spamming 3-4 tanks

    As you still need some dragon abilities (at least storm rider, welps and time warden) you should free them from the beginning so nothing really changes, except that you now need to kill the dragon to do enough dps on halfus to beat him in time

    Thank god, I hate that stupid haste thing, the ob and frost strike are allways lighted up and half the times I cant even use it. Its so wierd. Atleast they fixing it.

  11. #11
    The raid "Nerfs" are really only for heroic difficulties so it only affects basement dwelling nerds with to much time.

  12. #12
    So Crusader Strike now generates Holy Power half the time. At least there are other ways of doing it, though.*

    (*there isn't.)

  13. #13
    heroic maloriak is just terrible now, increase maloriak hp or something because we need to stop dps for the entire last blue and red phase

  14. #14
    Thank god for the chromatic prototypes shizzle , they were so annoying when you're trying to get out of t3h Lava

    Becouse you are bad in this game doesn't mean that only nerds are doing heroics. Many 3 n 4 day raiding guilds are @ 6/12 hc + (like my guild). Got life, got studies and still have some time to play.

    Go for 5m hc and be happy that u will be able FINALLY finish one (with ur cool buffs). ~~

    This happens to me aswell :S~ What's going on here? My game launcher tells me its up to date, but the ingame patch no. still says 4.0.3 and im prompted to again download the patch.

    Does anyone know a cheapfix to this? Perhaps I can download the patch somewhere and apply it?

    ~ Update: When I restarted WoW it finally looks like it started the proper download.
