General
- Voice Chat - The new Voice Chat feature is now available in game.
Players will need to go into the Options menu under Sound & Voice to
activate it. Volume sliders are available for the microphone,
speakers, and game-audio fade (which automatically lowers the game
audio when a voice communication is received), as is a “push-to-talk”
setting. Right-clicking on a player’s name now includes the option to
mute or unmute that player. Muting another player blocks all voice
chat from him or her; the ignore feature now blocks both voice chat
and text chat from that player. For the Voice Chat F.A.Q. visit the
following links:

- Chat Channels- New Chat Channel controls and functionality are now
available under the Chat tab in the Social window of the interface.
The interface will now show the channels players are in or are
available to them, depending on the area of the world they are in,
along with the addition of new private channel controls.
- A new feature for reporting players as being AFK in battlegrounds by
right clicking has been added. When enough reports are registered, a
60 second debuff will begin to count down. Once the timer is up a
new debuff will appear that will prevent the player from gaining any
honor while it is on. This debuff can be negated as soon as the
player engages in PvP combat.
- Haste: Haste has been rebalanced. It has returned to the ratios
from the launch of Burning Crusade. Melee attacks and spell casts
will now benefit at identical rates from haste. This change results
in a reduction in the benefit of haste for melee attacks and an
increase in the benefit for spellcasters.
- Troll Berserk: The spell haste on this ability was incorrectly too
high and has been corrected.
- Resilience Rating: The reduction to the percent chance to get a
critical strike now also reduces the damage dealt by damage over time
effects by the same percentage.
- Daze: Defense skill will no longer reduce the chance players have to
receive the Daze effect when attacked from behind by enemies.
- Area Spells: In some cases guards in neutral areas would not aggro
against pvp attacks from area spells. That is now fixed.
- Corrected the damage modifier calculation for Resilience when the
attacker has bonus critical strike damage.
- Power Regeneration: Any effect which triggers a change in your rate
of power regeneration (Mana, Rage, Energy, Focus) will now cause an
immediate reward of some power at the old rate of increase, and then
begin new “ticks” of power at the new rate approximately 2 seconds
later. This was done to improve functionality of abilities such as
Evocation and Innervate so that they did not have wasted “ticks”.
- Mac Movie Capture: the Mac client can now capture in-game video to
QuickTime movie files using a configurable choice of codec,
resolution, and frame rate. Two new entries have been added to the
Key Bindings dialog for start/stop recording and for cancellation of
a recording. For more detailed configuration options please see the
Mac Options panel in game. Mac OS X 10.4.9 and QuickTime 7.1.6 or
better are required. Not all machines have enough performance to
smoothly capture video at high frame rates; end user experimentation
will be required to find appropriate settings for each system.
- Pets are now affected by Paladin greater blessings.
- Kill Triggered Effects: Effects that trigger from killing your target
will no longer trigger from killing your pet.
- Non-combat pets may not be selected as the target for spells or
abilities.
- Non-combat pets now have the tag “Companion” instead of “Minion”.
- Being attacked by guardians, such as summoned Treants, will no longer
automatically cause neutral guards to attack you.
- Meeting Stones can no longer be used to summon players that do not
meet the level requirements.
- Damage and health leech effects always affect flying players even if
they are immune to the rest of the spell’s affects while in flight.
- Troll Berserk: The spell haste on this ability was incorrectly too
high and has been corrected.

PvP
- Dueling players may not use a Lightwell that they didn’t create themselves.
- Battlegrounds
Eye of the Storm: The points awarded from capturing the flag now
increase based on the number of bases the capturing teams owns.
- Arenas
Arena calculations have been modified. In addition, the penalty for
smaller arena teams (2v2, 3v3) has been slightly reduced.
Items that are indicated as quest items in their tooltips and have a
“use” or “equip” ability will not work in PvP arenas.
Players will no longer be able to change armor once an arena battle
has begun. Changing armor will still be available during the
one-minute prep time prior to the battle. Main hand, off hand and
ranged weapon swapping in combat remains unchanged.

Druids
- Cat Form (Night Elf) melee attack range was too short compared to
Tauren Cat Form and other attack ranges. It has been increased.
- Cyclone: It is no longer possible to Cyclone two targets at
the same time in the outdoor world.
- Cyclone: Paladin Auras, Trueshot Aura, and Aspect of the Pack will
now be automatically reactivated when Cyclone wears off of a victim
who had one of the abilities active.
- Enrage: If this buff is clicked off early, the armor penalty it
causes will now be removed as well.
- Enrage and Furor should no longer initiate combat, though it will
prevent rage decay for the duration.

Entangling Roots on two targets at the same time in the outdoor
world.
- Entangling Roots: It is no longer possible to have more than one rank
of this spell active on a player.

damage coefficients have also been increased.

two different characters are applying Lacerate to a target.

Mangle victim is killed by Mangle.
- Nature's Grasp: This ability can now trigger while the Druid is
sitting.
- Tree of Life: The party aura from this shapeshift now extends the
full 40-yard radius as stated in the tooltip.

Hunters
- Aspect of the Cheetah: This ability will now cause Hunters to become
dazed when struck while sitting.
- Aspect of the Pack: This ability will now cause party members to
become dazed when struck while sitting.
- Aspect of the Viper: This ability has received a slight redesign. The
amount of mana regained will increase as the Hunter’s percentage of
mana remaining decreases. At about 60% mana, it is equivalent to the
previous version of Aspect of the Viper. Below that margin, it is
better (up to twice as much mana as the old version); while above
that margin, it will be less effective. The mana regained never drops
below 10% of intellect every 5 sec. or goes above 50% of intellect
every 5 sec.
- Freezing Trap and Scare Beast duration against PvP targets has been
reduced to 10 seconds.

passive.
- Kill Command no longer affects the Hunter’s current target.

damage coefficients have also been increased. It also correctly
consumes charges of Misdirection.
- Hunter pets
Raptors can now learn Dash.

damage coefficients have also been increased.

effects to go off twice.
- Redoubt: This ability can now trigger while the Paladin is sitting.
- Reckoning: This ability can now trigger while the Paladin is sitting.

properly when the Paladin casting it had just been crowd controlled
by a creature. That is now fixed.
- Sanctified Judgement: This talent will now give the correct amount of
mana when used in conjunction with Seal of Justice.
- Seal of Righteousness: The tooltip for this ability has been
improved. It now displays a different number for one-handed weapons
and two-handed weapons, and adjusts to the speed of your current
weapon. It displays a single number, rather than a range of numbers
for different handedness and speeds.
- Seal of Vengeance: The damage from this ability will now stack
properly when two different characters are applying Seal of Vengeance
effects to a target.

succeeded with no effect.
