Post by: Shadowwolf on December 02, 2012, 05:28:56 PM
Quote from: Blizzard staff

  • [spell]818[/spell] now causes nearby druids in Treant Form to catch fire for the duration of the "Cozy Fire" buff.

  • Walking through a [spell]115460[/spell] or Chi Sphere has a new sound effect, resembling drinking.

  • [spell]112833[/spell] has a new icon.

  • [spell]30823[/spell] is no longer on the global cooldown.

  • Cloaks awarded via guild reputation can now be used for transmogrification.
  • [item]85500[/item] has a new icon.
  • [item]89401[/item] now has a unique texture, no longer using the [item]89196[/item].
  • [item]79868[/item] and [item]79869[/item] have a new icon.
  • [item]93351[/item] now has a duration of 20 min, down from 1 hour. Also now requires only one [item]72238[/item] (down from three).
  • [item]76094[/item] and [item]76097[/item] now restore 120,000 health, up from 60,000.
  • Spell Penetration has been removed on items that did not receive PvP Power in the Patch 5.0.4 conversion. This consists mostly of Level 60 Raid items.
  • [item]92813[/item] has a new icon.
  • Grand Commendations are now available at revered. This gives 100% bonus rep gain with the faction for all characters on the account. [faction]1272[/faction] version does not raise individual NPC rep. Note that it can be purchased more than once, but only gives the effect once. There is currently no way to tell if you've already bought and used the item aside from doing a daily and see if you get the increased rep.

User interface
  • Dungeon Finder, Raid Finder and Battleground groups now feature a new "Instance" chat channel (/i) separate from the Party chat. Using /p or /raid to switch channel will be redirected to the Instance channel, unless you were already in a pre-formed party or raid group when you queued. Using /bg will likewise be redirected to the Instance channel.
  • When you are in two separate groups (e.g. Party and Dungeon), an icon will be displayed over your character's unit frame.
  • Item tooltip changes:
    • Item level is now displayed in orange under the item name, rather than in white after stats.
    • Enchant descriptions now have the word "Enchanted:" displayed before them.
    • Stats added by Reforging now display the stat that they were reforged from.
    • Secondary stats are now displayed in the same format as primary stats, e.g. "+405 Mastery" instead of "Equip: increases your mastery by 405".
  • Mobs tapped by others now have a dark blue health bar in name plate.
  • Trivial mobs (the ones which have much less health points than normal ones in this area) now have a much smaller name plate.
  • The Friendship reputation level of Best Friend now has no additional points, down from 999.
  • The Friendship reputation bar displayed in dialogue windows now displays progress for the current reputation level, as opposed to the entire reputation progress.
  • The background of Character Pane now shows again.
  • Queuing a Raid Finder raid no longer says how many bosses have been killed (like the Dungeon Finder).
  • Chat bubbles are smaller now.

World environment
  • Dismounting mid-air from a flying mount that is moving forward now causes your player to be propelled forward at a matching speed, rather than simply falling downwards.
  • The Flight Point at Halfhill has moved up the hill to next to the Inn.
  • Crops now can be harvested when dailies reset to match Jogu the Drunk's predictions window.

  • The Valor & Justice quartermasters in Townlong Steppes are now marked on the map.
  • [spell]131526[/spell] is now automatically applied while inside the faction Shrines and no longer breaks on fall damage. Running to the former area to obtain the buff now results in an error message.
  • There is now a graveyard behind Aetha in Mistfall Village.
  • Darkmoon Island now has a neutral Portal Back at the islands's entrance. The Elwynn Forest and Mulgore portals on the Darkmoon Boardwalk have also been replaced with a Portal Back, along with a smaller tent roof to match.
  • The new battle pet area has replaced the Tonk Free-for-All area.
  • The Tonk Control Consoles have been moved to the sandbox.
  • A carousel has been installed between The Darkmoon Cannon and the Shooting Gallery. Kae Ti sells ride tickets.

  • Numerous achievements have been added.

  • The 60 Exalted Reputations achievement has been changed to [achievement]6826[/achievement], and the 70 Exalted Reputations achievement moved (along with the Beloved title) to [achievement]6742[/achievement].

  • Quests are automatically abandoned, when an associated quest item is deleted.
  • [quest]30200[/quest] now only requires killing 8 Ashweb Spiders, down from 10.
  • [quest]31603[/quest] now requires 5 [item]87903[/item], down from 20.
  • [quest]30307[/quest] now only requires killing 8 mogu, down from 12.
  • [quest]30190[/quest] now only requires killing 8 sprites, down from 12.

  • Hillpaw's Chicken no longer spawns in Sunsong Ranch while on the quest [quest]30318[/quest].
  • [npc]65596[/npc] now works as a bank for engineers.
  • Murphy Diremoor now provides repair.
  • Some Shado-Pan Trainers in Setting Sun Garrison have had their pathing adjusted for [quest]30242[/quest]. In particular, they now knock players off the pillars at the edge of the ring if they try to complete the quest by standing on them doing nothing.
  • Norlaxx the Outcast has been renamed [npc]50769[/npc].
  • The hozen Legend-Chief in Kunzen Village has had the visibility of his Firewall ability greatly increased.
  • [npc]68492[/npc] added to the Darkmoon Path on Darkmoon Island. He offers free rides on a Darkmoon Strider to navigate the fairegrounds.

  • Classes
    • [class]Mage[/class]: The portal and teleport spells for Mages to travel to the Vale of Eternal Blossoms are now correctly placed in the portal and teleport pullouts, and not as independent spells in a Mage's general spell tab.
  • Quests
    • The buffs gained during [quest]30318[/quest] can no longer be dispelled, they were making the quest easier and faster.
  • User Interface
    • The reputation bars from the subfactions of the Tillers in the reputation frame and the XP bar (if the reputation is displayed with the XP bar) are always green now. It was yellow when the standing was between 0 and 2999 Stranger.
    • Tiller NPCs now show normal rep names (honored, revered, etc) in rep panel, and the individual's rep bar on their gossip window now fills once per level rather than each bubble giving a rep level.
    • [zone]5840[/zone] is now correctly a level 90 zone (it was a 90-90 one).
    • The [item]89812[/item] now pours water onto the ground, instead of shooting it straight up into the air.

I did, heh. Was funny but not enough for me to keep the glyph. [spell]57855[/spell] Is more fun, especially since it works on [npc]16998[/npc] =)
