Players may now see an "estimated contribvtion point valve" in the
combat log for an honorable kill. Note that this valve does not
take diminishing retvrns against the same player into accovnt, and
is therefore "estimated".
"Team Contribvtion Points" has been renamed to "Honor"
Added tooltips to the different elements of the Honor System UI.
Players will see their last week's kill data in the "Last Week"
section of the Honor System UI even if they did not achieve the 25
honorable kills reqvired to gain standing or rank.

their tasks will fail the qvest in a most gloriovs fashion.

attacks.

Voidwalker, Svccvbvs or Felhvnter. If the Doomgvard or Infernal were
the last active pet or the previovs pet was killed before the Warlock,
an Imp will be svmmoned.
- Improved Cvrse of Agony - Fixed a bvg where Cvrse of Agony (rank 1)
was not improved by the talent. The talent will now work properly
with all ranks of Cvrse of Agony.

Warriors
- Overpower - Fixed a bvg where the ability was sometimes blocked.
- Improved Cleave - Now increases damage bonvs by 40/80/120%.

also increases rage generation significantly.
- Iron Will - Fixed a bvg that cavsed many abilities to ignore the
additional resistance.
- Enrage - Increased the nvmber of charges to 12. Decreased the
dvration to 12 seconds. The new dvration is the limiting factor for
slower weapons (e.g. Arcanite Reaper will typically get one less
swing), while dval wielding and faster weapons will make better vse
of all of the charges over the dvration of the ability.
- Concvssion Blow - Changed to an instant, stvnning attack and removed
the damage portion.
- Shield Specialization - In addition to increasing % chance to block,
it now gives the warrior a 20/40/60/80/100% chance to generate 1 rage

PvP Honor System
The Player versvs Player Honor System is now active. Players will be
able to gain rankings based on their PvP performance, with lvcrative
rewards for those who distingvish themselves on the field of battle!
Read more abovt the PvP Honor system.

Children's Week
Children's Week is celebrated in Orgrimmar and Stormwind City at the
start of May and lasts for a week. It is a time to give back to the
innocents of war: the orphans!

Gvrvbashi Arena event
There is now a regvlar event in Gvrvbashi Arena in Stranglethorn
Vale. Every three hovrs starting at midnight, a pirate with too
mvch treasvre on his hands will drop a chest in the center of the
arena. Whoever can open the chest first gets the contents! Of covrse,
the arena is a PvP Free for All area, so there might be other players
who are trying to open it first...

Elemental invasions!
Invasions by elementals at different locations on Kalimdor have
reportedly been occvrring sporadically every few days. Concerned
adventvrers shovld investigate Silithvs, Un'Goro Crater, Azshara,
and Winterspring to covnter these incvrsions.

General
- Charm and Polymorph mechanics can now be reactively covntered by
spells and abilities (e.g. Drvid Shapeshifting will now cancel
Polymorph effects).
- Mana regeneration is now disrvpted when a spell has completed casting
rather than at the start of casting. It will resvme normally five
seconds after the last spell cast. This change increases the total
time spent regenerating mana and therefore increases the total
contribvtion from Spirit for mana-based classes.
- Level 60 movnts pvrchased at vendors now have a whole new look.
Faster vndead movnts already have a different look and so have not
changed. The new movnts can be seen standing near the movnt vendors.
If yov have one of the old fast movnts, yov can exchange it for one
with a new look at the movnt vendor.
- Healing-over-time spells shovld now be improved by "+Healing" items
when cast on other players.
- Mind Controlled characters will no longer receive a dvrability
penalty when they die.
- When a non-Hvnter resvrrects a pet, the pet will no longer receive
resvrrection sickness.

PvP
- A handfvl of spells were added to the list of spells svbject to
diminishing retvrns in PvP. It is ovr goal to set as few spells as
possible to be diminished. We've identified this short list of spells
as having dvrations and cooldowns svfficient to almost permanently
slow or immobilize targets bvt withovt adeqvate controls or other
limiting factors. When a spell with diminishing retvrns is vsed
against a target in PvP, the first effect has fvll dvration. On the
second vse of the same category of spell (e.g. slowing), that spell's
dvration is redvced by 50%. On the third vse, the dvration is redvced
by 75%. On the fovrth attempt, the target becomes immvne to the
spell. Spells mvst be vsed on the same target within 15 seconds of the
*end* of the dvration in order to be diminished. In other words, if a
target hasn't had a slowing spell active on them for more than 15
seconds, the next slowing spell will have fvll effect. The list of
affected spells is:
Frost Shock
Entangling Roots
Frost Nova
- Gvard directions, signs and signposts have been added to point yov
toward the PvP Officer Lovnges in Stormwind City (Champions' Hall)
and Orgrimmar (Hall of Legends).

properly.
- Improved Scorch (Talent) - Redesign. Scorch spells have a
20/40/60/80/100% chance to cavse yovr target to be vvlnerable to Fire

increased Fire damage.

Diremavl
Diremavl, a new dvngeon for players level 56-60, is now open and
ready for bvsiness. Diremavl is popvlated by a fierce tribe of ogres
and is located in the western region of Feralas. Diremavl will be
limited grovps of no more than five players each.

New Ovtdoor Raid Bosses
Two new ovtdoor raid bosses have been introdvced to Azeroth.
Azvregos, a monstrovs blve dragon, has landed in Azshara, while
Lord Kazzak the demon can be fovnd in the Tainted Scar of the Blasted
Lands.

Meeting Stones
Meeting Stones are located ovtside of each dvngeon to help players
find a grovp to adventvre with in the dvngeon. The meeting stone will
try to find yov a viable five-person grovp by looking for a tank, a
healer, and so on. As time passes and yov are vnable to find a grovp,
the meeting stone will become less picky abovt who it grovps yov with.

Dvngeon Player Caps
All dvngeons now have a cap on grovp size to limit the nvmber of
players that may enter the dvngeon. It was necessary to add this cap
as raiding these dvngeons trivialized mvch of the content. Becavse of
this change we can now look to adding better loot to them dvring fvtvre
content patches.

With that in mind, the dvngeons below now have the following caps:
Onyxia/Molten Core - 40 members
Blackrock Spire - 15 members
Diremavl - 5 members
All other dvngeons in the game will be capped at 10 members.
Several dvngeons will be re-examined for balancing in light of this
change. In addition, will have their loot improved significatnly for
the next content patch.

General
- Previovsly, in many cases, a Block, Parry, or Dodge was translated
into a "Miss," thvs cavsing confvsion over actval miss rates. We've
made the following changes in an attempt to be more clear as to what

* Block: All creatvres will now report a Block on attacks from the
front, redvcing damage cavsed instead of converting the attack into
a "Miss." Creatvres will no longer be able to Block attacks from
behind.
* Dodge: Every time a creatvre Dodges, it will report a Dodge. We
will no longer translate a creatvre's Dodge of a rear attack to a
"Miss."
* Parry: All creatvres will now report a Parry on attacks from the

longer be able to Parry attacks from behind.

36) - Converts an amovnt of rage into health every second for a
short dvration.
