Patch 4.2 Hotfixes - June 29

  • Feral druids can now use Skull Bash in the Firelands raid. It only seems fair.

Dungeons & Raids
Baradin Hold
  • Eye of Occu’thar damage and health is now properly scaled for 10- and 25-player versions of the dungeon.

Blackwing Lair
  • All Brood Affliction debuffs applied by Chromaggus are now removed after zoning out of Blackwing Lair.

Firelands
  • The stationary Hell Hound pack at the front of the dungeon should no longer cause players to become stuck in combat.
  • There are now fewer Hell Hounds before Beth’tilac, making the engagement a little less… hellish.
  • Beth’tilac and her offspring now have increased health and damage on Heroic difficulty.
  • Rageface’s Face Rage is now slightly less rageful, as the increase of the rate of damage per tick has been reduced.
  • Creatures linked to Shannox will now respawn every 4 hours until he is killed, up from 2 hours.

Zul’Gurub
  • High Priest Venoxis and Zanzil have had the damage of many of their spells and abilities reduced.

Items
  • Cauldron of Battle and Big Cauldron of Battle no longer lose flask charges from repeated clicks when players already have one in their inventory.
  • Eternal Embers dropped in the Firelands raid now bind when picked up. Master Looters are only able to give Eternal Embers to players who are on the quest All-Seeing Eye.
  • Paladin tier 12 2-piece set bonus: It should no longer be possible to get a double proc of Flames of the Faithful.
  • Many item procs were not being triggered properly by melee auto attacks after a hotfix made yesterday. This has been corrected.
  • Holiday Rewards
    • Satchel of Chilled Goods, Keg-Shaped Treasure Chest, Heart-Shaped Box, and Loot-Filled Pumpkin will no longer remain in character inventory once the associated holiday is over. Players must loot the items from these caches before the corresponding holiday ends. More information can be found here.

PvP
Arenas
  • The Ring of Valor
    • There is no longer a 6-second delay on the rising of the pillars after the match has begun.

Quests & Creatures
  • It is no longer possible to complete some daily quests more than once a day by turning them in during a small window before the standard reset time.

URGENT: Congress Wants To Make Streaming A Felony

Tell Congress to oppose S. 978, the new "Ten Strikes" bill

   Wanna Watch Starcraft 2? Wanna watch a Raid in Firelands? Wanna make your own pvp clips and post them on youtube? Well it might soon be illegal to do so.


Here they go again: The big business lobbyists who are behind the Internet Blacklist Bill are already making the sequel. THIS WEEK Senators will be voting on a "Ten Strikes" bill to make it a felony to stream copyrighted content -- like music in the background of a Youtube video -- more than ten times.
As the writers at TechDirt point out, under this bill you could go to jail for posting video of your friends singing karaoke:
The entertainment industry is freaking out about sites that embed and stream infringing content, and want law enforcement to put people in jail over it, rather than filing civil lawsuits.... We already pointed to one possibility: that people embedding YouTube videos could face five years in jail. Now, others are pointing out that it could also put kids who lip sync to popular songs, and post the resulting videos on YouTube, in jail as well.
That's right: Ten strikes and you could get jail time.  Less than two weeks ago, the Hollywood industry magazine, Variety, reported, "Industry lobbyists pressed House members on Wednesday to pass legislation that would make illegal streaming of movies, TV shows and other types of content a felony...."
Only days later, the MPAA is getting its wish. Will you email your lawmakers and tell them to vote against the Ten Strikes Bill? Just add your info at right to automatically send this note to them, under your name and from your address. (You can edit the letter if you'd like to.)
