In addition, anyone who owns the original World of Warcraft, regardless of when they purchased the game, will automatically be able to access all of the content and features from The Burning Crusade expansion at no additional cost. It’s time to set forth from Azeroth, adventurer -- Outland awaits!

Also, the trial accounts are no longer limited in time and players can spend an unlimited amount of time on them. The level cap (20) and other restrictions still applies.

Dungeons & Raids
Blackwing Descent
  • Atramedes's Sonar Pulses are properly moving toward raid members when spawned underneath him.

Firelands
  • Fiery Blood from Fire Scorpions now only affects other Fire Scorpions and Giant Fire Scorpions.
  • Fire Turtles should no longer keep players in combat after their pack is killed.

Items
  • Alliance and Horde Guild Battle Standards cannot be used inside the Firelands raid.
  • Both Faldren Tillsdale and Jamus'Vaz (Valor Point vendors) now display items grouped together in the following manner: rings, necks, bracers, relics, ranged weapons, thrown weapons, then tier sets.
  • The Severed Visionary Tentacle is no longer infinitely applying to characters.

Quests & Creatures
Elemental Bonds Quest Chain
  • Aggra's bubble is now significantly larger and has a sparkle effect, making it easier for players to locate her when on the quest Elemental Bonds: Desire.
  • Players should be able to see Therazane and turn in the quest Into Constant Earth while at any stage of Deepholm progression without issue.

Avengers of Hyjal Reputation


Earning reputation with the Avengers of Hyjal can by done only by defeating monsters inside the Firelands.

All trash gives reputation up until 5999 Friendly. After that, only larger mobs like Molten Lords give reputation. Thus it's easy for farming groups to get honored with little effort, even if they don't raid.

Since some people have been asking... yes, epics drop from trash (quite a bit actually) and the patterns do as well. All of it is BoE.

Bosses (250) - Total of seven bosses, 250 (275 with guild perk) reputation each, with Ragnaros possibly awarding more.
