Latest revision as of 22:50, May 12, 2010

This article lists all of Patch 3.0.8's undocumented changes.

See the main article for the official list of documented changes.

GeneralEdit

  • The time needed to open chests and pick up quest items from the ground has been significantly reduced.
  • The Blizzard Launcher has 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.

AchievementsEdit

PvPEdit

Lake WintergraspEdit

  • Tenacity effect has been lowered. Now improving your health, healing, and health regen by 18% (down from 25%) and increasing your damage dealt by 14% (down from 18%).
  • Restricted Flight Area duration increased from 8 to 9 seconds.
  • Rewards added for Inv jewelry ring 66 [Wintergrasp Mark of Honor]: [2]
  • Money achievement Destruction Derby has been fixed, as a consequence all players will need to re-earn it.
  • Essence of Wintergrasp icon has been changed.
  • Zone-wide buff, Tower Control, added when controlling the southern tower, increasing damage by 5%.

Class ChangesEdit

Death KnightEdit

  • 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.
  • Spell deathknight summondeathcharger Acherus Deathcharger and Ability mount dreadsteed 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.

DruidEdit

HunterEdit

MageEdit

PaladinEdit

PriestEdit

RogueEdit

  • Ambush now generates two combo points, but is no longer affected by Lethality (again).
  • The graphic effect while walking stealthed has been improved.

ShamanEdit

WarlockEdit

  • Backdraft now also reduces the global cooldown of your next three Destruction spells by 10/20/30%.
  • Chaos Bolt damage has been increased (from 1036-1314 to 1243-1577 for Rank 4).
  • Demonic Empathy now affects all spells for 15 seconds (instead of next 3 spells).
  • Rain of Fire has a new animation.

WarriorEdit

ProfessionsEdit

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).

AlchemyEdit

  • [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.

BlacksmithingEdit
