  • Alterac Valley [2]
    • The level brackets have been reorganized as such: 51-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80.
    • The level of bosses in lower level brackets has been reduced to compensate for the bracket change.

Class changes

Death Knight

  • Talents
    • Unholy
      • [Bone Shield]: The duration of this ability has been reduced to 1 minute (from 5).



  • The hunter will now visibly throw its pet a given food item when feeding via item-on-portrait or via [Feed Pet]. This does not apply to pure buff items such as Sporeling Snacks or  [Kibler's Bits]. Only food items.

Dungeons & Raids

  • Trial of the Champion (normal and heroic dungeon):
    • There is now an option in the herald's dialogue to skip the introductory scripted scene if everyone in the party has already seen it.
    • When defeated in mounted combat, the faction champions will now become untargetable and run back to the gate, so players can start phase 2 whenever they are ready. This is done to remove the need to run out of the instance to drop aggro from the mounted phase.



Completing the daily dungeon quest from Archmage Timear now gives you the additional option to pick a  [Sons of Hodir Commendation Badge] (500 rep) among the rewards.


  • The achievement  Onyxia's Lair has been converted to a Feat of Strength and removed from the requirements for  Classic Raider.
  • The achievement  BB King for Horde and Alliance to pelt the opposite faction's leaders was added in the Winter Veil category.
  • The achievement  Dead Man's Party was added for Day of the Dead.


Bug Fixes

  • An issue where some characters could only hit things at point blank range with the Complimentary Brewfest Sampler were corrected.
  • Heirloom items now properly give extra experience in battlegrounds. This was bugged in the previous patch. [5]

User Interface

  • CVar shadowinstancing was changed to default to 1 (On) rather than 0 (off), and has been tweaked from the previous version. This should result in better fps for most users, and fix an issue with shadows flickering.
