General
  • Transmogrified items should always lose their transmogrification when mailed.

    • Fall of Deathwing is now available via Raid Finder once you have completed Siege of Wyrmrest.
    • Players who have killed the final boss in one of the wings of Dragon soul via Raid Finder will be more likely to enter fresh instances on subsequent Raid Finder instances that week. This should make it easier to kill earlier bosses that they might have missed.
