Quote from: Blizzard staff
General
  • Additional Brewfest decorations added.
  • New laugh for worgen human form added.
  • New hairstyles have been added for the following race/gender combinations:
    • Orc Male: Wedge
    • Orc Female: Bangs, Braided Hawk

Achievements
  • [achievement]5853[/achievement] - New achievement added for Winter Veil.
  • [achievement]5794[/achievement] is now worth 10 Achievement Points.
  • [achievement]6006[/achievement] - New achievement added for Lunar Festival.
  • Midsummer Fire Festival achievements added
    • [achievement]6013[/achievement]
    • [achievement]6007[/achievement]
    • [achievement]6009[/achievement]
    • [achievement]6012[/achievement]
  • Feats of Strength added for [achievement]6002[/achievement] and [achievement]6003[/achievement], both of which have already been awarded but did not originally have Feats of Strength associated with them.
  • Feats of Strength added for the Winter's Veil gifts, [achievement]6059[/achievement] and [achievement]6060[/achievement].
  • The Guild Achievement [achievement]5812[/achievement] is now worth 15 guild achievement points again (4.2.0 set its value at 0).

Quests
  • New quests added:
    • [quest]29608[/quest]
    • [quest]29609[/quest]

Classes
  • [class]Hunter[/class]
    • [spell]Bombardment[/spell] changed to match description - it now ends on next [spell]Multi-Shot[/spell], instead of lasting its full duration and halving the cost of all Multi-Shots cast in that period.
  • [class]Mage[/class]
    • [spell]Permafrost[/spell] tooltip changed. It no longer states the percentage by which the target's healing is reduced. As [spell]12294[/spell], [spell]46910[/spell] and  [item]Wound Poison[/item] have all been changed to cause a 25% debuff (back up from 10%) it's possible that this tooltip change reflects a similar change in the healing debuff provided by the talent.
  • [class]Priest[/class]
    • Characters under the effects of [spell]1706[/spell] no longer use their run animation when moving.
    • [spell]83968[/spell] can no longer be cast by priests in [spell]20711[/spell] form.

Items
  • Several items have had their durability increased.
  • All equipable holiday items have been given durability amounts ranging from 16 to 25.
  • [item]12735[/item] is now a poor quality item, and can be sold for 18s 75c.
  • [item]45998[/item] now has a durability.
  • All thrown weapons now have a durability.
  • Stable Masters now sell  [Rope Pet Leash], which was previously only available at Breanni in Dalaran.
  • The companion pets from Winter Veil no longer require a [item]Snowball[/item] to summon. However,
    • [spell]26533[/spell] and [spell]26541[/spell] are very busy and will complain before despawning themselves if summoned outside of the Winter Veil.
    • [spell]26045[/spell] is smaller than usual and will fall over and die after a few seconds of being summoned outside of Winter Veil.
    • [spell]26529[/spell] will not wear any of its holiday decorations outside of Winter Veil
  • The Scourge Haunt from [item]40110[/item] now won't be active at the same time as a normal companion pet. In addition, whenever it is summoned or respawns after disappearing (outrun, zoned, etc) the character will do a /cower animation for a moment. This also affects taxi mounts; they stop every few moments and turn around while the character cowers at the haunt.
  • A non-BoP version of [item]78348[/item] is now sold by [npc]19536[/npc] in [zone]3523[/zone].

Raids & Dungeons
  • In the Dungeon Finder the Cataclysm Heroic Dungeons have been recategorized as follows:
    • Hour of Twilight Heroic consisting of End Time, Hour of Twilight and Well of Eternity

  • [item]18512[/item],  [item]20500[/item],  [item]20498[/item], and  [item]20501[/item] are now grey (vendor trash) quality. The Leatherworking patterns that used these have had their reagent costs adjusted.
  • [item]77101[/item] can now be learned through [spell]61288[/spell].
  • The icons for Enchanting scrolls have changed.
  • Enchant Shield - Lesser Block is now called  [spell]13689[/spell]. Its effect had previously been changed from block to parry.

World Environment
  • [npc]48737[/npc] now has a unique model.
  • Darkmoon Island has been added and will replace the Darkmoon Faire.

  • A slower animation is shown if you acquire new spells, either by buying or as a quest reward (from class quests in starting areas).
  • You can no longer delete characters that have mail or heirlooms in their inventory or void storage.
  • Brazilian Portuguese localization has been added.
  • Report Spam now removes the offending item from the chat window.
  • Auction House now shows more relevant information in the "Lvl" (Level) column for some categories: Containers - "Slots", Gems - "iLvl", Recipes - "Skill" (to learn)
  • Users without the latest expansions now receive an "upgrade" button on the left of the character select screen to upgrade their account.
  • The Raid Browser has been moved to the "Other Raids" section of the new Raid Finder.
  • The Dungeon Finder eye near the Minimap displays how many players are joined in the group, when the number is lower than the maximum.
  • The popup menu of the Dungeon Finder eye is now positioned under it, instead of left from it.
  • The target portrait frame is less translucent (at least the Health, Mana and Energy bars and Combo points).
