New Patch Notes

Now after reading the patch notes I decided that I had to say a few things about some of the notes, because I found them interesting. If you haven't seen the notes you should go take a look at them.

First off there seems to be some random nerfs and such to heroics. I am really wondering if this is needed because of the gear increase. Now I know that for people geared for the current content the heroics are already becoming very simple, plus with the addition of the increased luck of the draw buff this really makes me wonder what the reason is. Are people really still having trouble clearing the heroics? Regardless to the raider I really don't think they will notice a change with these nerfs, because they seem aimed at people that are not very bright.

Account Bound Items
  • Many "Account Bound" heirlooms are now labeled as " Account Bound", meaning that they can also be traded or mailed to characters that are on different World of Warcraft accounts under the same account.
  • Mail sent to characters on the same account now arrives instantaneously, as it does for the same World of Warcraft account.
  • Mailing account-bound items to characters of the opposite faction on the same account will now correctly translate faction-specific items to their appropriate equivalent.
This is an interesting change for people who enjoy alts and have multiple accounts linked to a single account. This still doesn't go as far as to give the altaholics what they want, which is heirlooms being able to be mailed cross server.

Hunters will automatically acquire a new target if the current target dies in the middle of a cast.

Can you imagine how many things will be pulled accidentally?

Wailing Caverns
  • The maze section has been removed, and nearby creatures and bosses have been adjusted to compensate.
This may be the greatest change in the history of the game.

So like I said these are just some of the changes that I think are interesting ones. There are plenty of other changes that are worth taking a look at including an explanation of guild challenges.


  1. go go wailing canverns still hoping we get a heroic in there lol

  2. The Hunter change - that is EXACTLY what I thought. With that, and autoshot while moving (used to be the best way to stop from pulling the pack you accidentally targeted) it's like they're TRYING to make Huntards!! -_-

  3. Novicane would be so proud

  4. Ref to the Hunter change..I seriously hope that is a typo.

    And OMG Hey Bohn!!
