General

  • The time needed to open chests and pick up quest items from the ground has been significantly reduced.
  • The Blizzard Launcher received a new appearance.
  • The number of Troll Roof Stalkers has been increased.
  • Teleportation effects (at least with regards to outdoor Northrend areas) now cause a loading screen to appear, instead of just instantly moving you to the new location (with accompanying loading lag). This is true for hearthstones, and quest teleports like the K3 teleporter.
  • Weapon skill points can no longer be gained from attacking mobs that are immune to combat.
  • Performing a /kiss command on Mojo will no longer increase your buff size on a mount, but instead will dismount you and transform you into a frog.
  • The racial restrictions was also lifted from the pre-Patch 1.4.0 epic mounts, instead of excluding these. This was likely a blanket approach to all mounts to save time, as including nor excluding the old mounts would change what races have them.

NPCs

Achievements

PvP

Class Changes

Death Knight

  • Glyph changes, see below.
  • Sigil changes, see below.
  • Unholy Death Knights with the talent [Master of Ghouls] will now have their ghoul resurrected free of cost every time they die in a battleground.
  • [Acherus Deathcharger] and  [Winged Steed of the Ebon Blade] have had each other's icons swapped; this is most likely a bug.
  • Contrary to the official patch notes, the cooldown on Howling Blast has not been removed. It has been reduced from 6 seconds to 5 seconds. The tooltip doesn't explain this, but if you try to hit Howling Blast twice in quick succession it will not work.
  • [Necrosis] adds 20% Shadow damage instead of 10% for melee attacks.
  • [Horn of Winter] and [Chains of Ice] have new animations.

Druid

Hunter

Mage

Paladin

Priest

Rogue

  • The graphic effect while walking stealthed has been improved.

Shaman

Warlock

Warrior

Professions

The level requirements for gathering professions that were removed in the last patch have been reinstated, which should prevent abuse of abilities such as Toughness for Mining (all ranks of which now give Stamina rather than hit points).

Alchemy

  •  [Lesser Flask of Resistance] has been added. Resistance to all schools of magic by 50 for 1 hour. Guardian and battle elixir. Persists through death.[2]
  • All Eternal Transmutes cast times have been reduced to 5 seconds (from 25 seconds).[2]
  •  [Transmute: Titanium] cooldown has been lowered from 3.8 days to 20 hours.
