Players should now always be able to complete a specific Heroic dungeon once per day regardless of any random dungeons completed.

  • Players now only have to kill two of the four Troll avatars before they may face Hex Lord Malacrass.

Druid (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
  • Swipe (Cat) has been reduced to 340% weapon damage, down from 415%.

Paladin (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
  • Seal of Truth, when Judged, now benefits from a multiplier of 20% per stack of Censure, up from 10%.

  • Sanctified Retribution now increases the critical hit chance of Hammer of Wrath by 2/4/6%, down from 20/40/60%.
  • Two-Handed Weapon Specialization (passive) now increases damage by 25%, up from 20%.

Shaman (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
  • Wind Shear’s base cooldown has been adjusted to 15 seconds, up from 6 seconds.

  • Maelstrom Weapon can now also proc from fully absorbed melee attacks.

User Interface
  • A search field has been added to allow players to search bag, bank, guild bank, and Void Storage inventories for specific items.
  • Added a “promote everyone” checkbox that will automatically make all raid members, Raid assistants. This checkbox can be found in the Raid Frame and the Unit Frame “pull-out” tab.
  • There are now commands for world markers & unit markers.
  • Added new rotation, zoom, and pan controls are now available in all windows with player models in UI frames.
