WoW Patch 2.3.0 Notes

World of Warcraft Client Patch 2.3.0

The latest patch notes can always be found at http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/patchnotes/

The Gods of Zul'Aman

The stronghold of Zul'Aman has stood for millennia as the Amani trolls' seat of power and bastion of the fearless, cunning warlord Zul'jin.

Zul'jin has spent several years plotting behind Zul'Aman's walls. Furious at the Horde for allowing his hated enemies, the blood elves, to join its ranks, he eagerly embraced a scheme that the witch doctor Malacrass recently proposed: to seal the power of the animal gods within the bodies of the Amani's strongest warriors.

Now Zul'Aman's army grows more powerful by the day, hungry to exact vengeance in the name of its fearless leader, Zul'jin.

Guild Banks Introduced

* The Guild Bank is a shared repository for an entire guild and will be accessible through Guild Vault objects near existing banks. The Guild Bank will allow players with the appropriate permissions to store items and money for use by the rest of the guild. Permissions to withdraw and deposit money and items are controlled by the guild leader through the guild controls menu. The Guild Bank is divided up into separate tabs so that the guild leader may restrict access or group items into distinct categories.

    • Up to 6 purchasable tabs each containing 98 item slots
    • Permissions to view/deposit/withdraw per tab
    • You may use your Guild Bank withdraw limits to pay for item repairs (now enabled on all merchants)
    • Transaction logs of the last 25 actions within each tab, as well as money activity.

Dustwallow Marsh

* Dustwallow Marsh has seen many improvements with the addition of over 50 new quests and a new neutral goblin town called Mudsprocket located in the southern part of the zone. There is also a small quest hub featuring a crashed goblin zeppelin, to the east of Tabetha's hut.

Leveling Improvements

* Many leveling improvements have been made for the old world.
    • The amount of experience needed to gain a level has been decreased between levels 20 and 60. In addition, the amount of experience granted by quests has been increased between levels 30 and 60.
    • Level 1-60 dungeon quests have had their experience and faction rewards increased.
    • Many elite creatures and quests in the level 1-60 experience have been changed to accommodate solo play.

* The latest patch of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade shows a benefit on today's popular multicore processors like the Intel(r) Core(tm)2 Duo processor family. The enhanced patch has demonstrated higher frame rates by spreading the work across both processor cores.
* Zul'Aman is a 10-player, level 70 outdoor instance located in the Ghostlands. Players will be able to confront six new bosses including the Forest Troll Warlord Zul'jin.

* On Kill Effects: Items and abilities that trigger on killing an enemy will no longer trigger on using an ability that kills your pet.

* Flying units can see ground units and vice versa at any altitude.

User Interface

* The Auction House UI has been much improved. The useless categories have been removed (Plate-Cloak for instance) and a number of additional sub categories have been added. In addition, many items have had their category changed so that they make more sense.
* The Auction house time periods have been changed. Now items can be put up for sale for 12, 24, or 48 hours. The option to put up items for 8 hours has been removed.
* Sorting of auction house searches has been simplified so you can only sort by one column, and automatic sub-sorts have been created for those columns to be as useful as possible. In addition, sorting is now done on the server so as you page thru results, items will appear to be sorted across the entire results instead of just the page you’re looking at.
* The Battle Map has been renamed to the Zone Map and can be turned on for any zone rather than just PvP objective zones. There is now a drop down in the world map screen that allows you to choose when the zone map should display.
* Items that have cooldowns will now display the base cooldown time in the item tooltip.
* All players now have a tracking bubble on their minimap. From that menu you can select a specific type of vendor or npc to look for or you can select a specific tracking type if your character has tracking. Yes this means that hunters can take all of those tracking buttons off of their action bars.
* Game objects that you can interact with will now sparkle and display their name over the object to make them more obvious.
* Questgiving objects will now display an exclamation point above them when they have a quest for you. Quest completion objects will display a question mark.
* Items with Metagems in them will now display the gems required to activate the metagem and whether those requirements have been met on the item tooltip.
* When you take damage and have a full screen UI up, the edges of the screen will flash red so you know you are under attack.
* Inspect distance has been increased to 30 yards.
* When you inspect another player, you can now see their talent choices as well as their equipment.
* There are now options for displaying health and mana values on your health/mana bars for you/your party/your target and to display that information either as percentages or as numbers.
* When you are possessing a target (Priest Mind Control, Eyes of the Beast, using a Steam Tonk, etc), you now get their action bar as your primary action bar rather than having a mini action bar above your normal action bar.
* The Mind Control and Possession action bar has been revamped.
* You can now send up to 12 items in a single mail message.
* When you have an outgoing mail open, you can right-click on items to attach them to that outgoing mail.
* When you have a trade window open, you can right-click an item to move it to the trade window.
* When you have unopened mail, you can mouse over the recent mail icon and get the name of the people who most recently sent you the mail.
* When you speak with an NPC with a single function (Banker, Flight Master, Etc) and who has no other gossip options or quests you will go straight to their functional pane rather than to the gossip pane. Most importantly this means that clicking on a flight master will bring up the flight path map directly rather than the gossip pane with the option to bring up the flight path map.
* Quests that are much below your level will now have the tag (Low Level) in the gossip pane attached to the quest. This will make it easier to tell which quest to accept when a quest giver has both low and high level quests.
* You can now set the loot threshold (/threshold) with a word as well as the loot threshold number for an instance-
/threshold Epic- also sets the party loot threshold to Epic items or better quality
/threshold Rare-sets the party loot threshold to Rare items or better quality
* Corpses that belong to someone in your party, but that you cannot loot will say in the corpse mouseover who has loot rights on that corpse. This will help skinners who want to know who to talk to in order to skin their corpse, as well as master looters when special loot drops on a normal monster. Everyone will then see that there is a monster that the master looter has loot rights on.
* When an item drops that you cannot loot due to uniqueness or other factor, you will get a chat message letting you know what the item was that you passed rolling on.
* If a player is looting a corpse and there are one or more items on it that player cannot loot, the player will still be able to see those items (although not able to loot them). This only is for green or better quality items. The cases this should affect are for the profession recipes that only a player of that profession can loot or when master looter is on and there is a threshold or better item on the corpse.
* The raid panes that have been pulled out into the gamefield should save their option settings between sessions now.
* When raid bosses send an important message to the center of your screen it will be larger and have an effect that makes it more noticeable.
* The raid warning command now appears in a larger font in the center screen and grows and shrinks slightly when it appears to make it more noticeable.
* NPC's with level appropriate quests will now always appear on your minimap as yellow exclamation points. NPC's that have quests that you have completed will now display as yellow question marks instead of yellow dots. In addition flight masters that you have not yet gotten the flight point for will display on the minimap as a green exclamation point.
* Npc's will display an icon on mouseover that gives a more specific indicator of their function rather than just a gossip bubble. Questgivers will now show an exclamation mark as their in game mouseover. Innkeepers will show a hearthstone as their in game mouseover and so on.
* When an Addon attempts to perform an action that is prohibited in combat, you will get a chat message "Interface action failed because of an AddOn". This only occurs once per login.
* Many interface elements now display players in their class color so you can easily recognize what class a player is. Interface elements affected by this are LFG, Guild, and Who.
* You can now pull the list of players in a channel out of the Chat Channel windows and into the gamefield by clicking and dragging the channel name onto the gamefield. This list will show all the players in the channel sorted by voice chat status.
* Voice chat will now display the nameplate for who is talking when you are in a custom channel. Currently it only displays the nameplate when you are in a party/raid.
* Added a Use Hardware option. This should only be used by advanced users with specific hardware configurations, as it may significantly alter your sound performance.
* When multiple people are talking in a voice chat session, it will show the names of up to four people who are talking at the same time.
* The value of the TargetNearestDistance setting is validated at load time.
* If a non-standard refresh rate is selected in the video options, it will now be saved.
* The Spell Detail slider setting has been reset to the default setting. Prior to 2.3 the default for all systems was the maximum setting which was not appropriate for all hardware.
* Many On Use items now display the cooldown in the item tooltip.
* The tooltip for Block on the character sheet now displays the amount of damage reduced by a successful block.
* New macro commands: /targetlastenemy, /targetlastfriend
* New macro command to target by entire name: /targetexact
* If you get a message "Interface action failed because of an AddOn", this means that an AddOn interfered with the Blizzard UI in some way. To diagnose this, enter the following into chat "/console taintLog 1" and restart the game and try to reproduce it. If you reproduce it, you can quit the game and search through the file Logstaint.log for the word "blocked" and mail the log to the author of the AddOn listed there. Once you have done this you can turn off logging by entering the following into chat "/console taintLog 0”
* For more details on UI macro and scripting changes, see the UI & Macro forum.

World Environment

* Creature AI has been changed to no longer prioritize attacking unfeared targets over feared targets.
* Gas clouds in Nagrand now produce motes of air.
* Gas clouds in Zangarmarsh now produce motes of water instead of motes of life.
* The gas clouds in Netherstorm are now always visible. Abilities on goggles that previously allowed the player to detect these invisible gas clouds will now show all gas clouds on their minimap instead. This will stack with other tracking types.
* Stranglethorn Vale
o Saltscale Tide-Lords no longer have frost nova
o The fear on Mosh'ogg Lords is reduced
* Lowered the fireball damage of Defias Pillagers

Zul'Aman

Zul'Aman is a 10-player, level 70 outdoor instance located in the Ghostlands. Players will be able to confront six new bosses including the Forest Troll Warlord Zul'jin.

Guild Banks Introduced

The Guild Bank is a shared repository for an entire guild and will be accessible through new NPC's called guild bankers. The Guild Bank will allow players with the appropriate permissions to store items and money for use by the rest of the guild. Permissions to withdraw and deposit money and items are controlled by the guild leader through the guild controls menu. The Guild Bank is divided up into separate tabs so that the guild leader may restrict access or group items into distinct categories.
o Up to 6 purchasable tabs each containing 98 item slots
o Permissions to view/deposit/withdraw per tab
o You may use your Guild Bank withdraw limits to pay for item repairs (now enabled on all merchants)
o Transaction logs of the last 50 actions in the bank viewable on a per tab basis

General

* Experience: The amount of experience needed to gain a level has been decreased between levels 20 and 60. In addition, the amount of experience granted by quests has been increased between levels 30 and 60.
* Expertise: We have added a new stat and associated rating called expertise and expertise rating. Expertise rating converts to expertise at the same rate that weapon skill rating formerly converted at. Each point of expertise reduces the chance for your attacks to be dodged or parried by 0.25%.
* Healing reduction effects will now affect all health drain spells and abilities (e.g. Mortal Strike will reduce health gained from Drain Life).
* Healing: Almost all items and enchantments that provide bonus healing now also provide a smaller number (approximately 1/3) of bonus spell damage. There are a few items and enchantments where this was not possible, such as random-stat items and Zul'Gurub enchantments, but this is now the case on virtually all other items.
* On Kill Effects: Items and abilities that trigger on killing an enemy will no longer trigger on using an ability that kills your pet.
* Weapon Skill: All items and abilities that granted weapon skill have been changed. In most cases, they were converted to expertise or expertise rating. Ranged attacks do not benefit from expertise, so ranged weapon skill has generally been replaced by critical strike bonuses or hit bonuses. In a few cases, talents have been changed to other effects to avoid granting players excessive amounts of expertise.
* A new flight path has been added to the Rebel Camp in northern Stranglethorn Vale.
* Flying units can see ground units and vice versa at any altitude.
* Players no longer gain the moving AOE radius bonus if they are jumping.
* Client spell cast requests are now sent to the server even if your player is already casting another spell. This eliminates the need for /stopcasting in macros to compensate for latency.
* Vendor Discounts: All vendors with an associate faction now give discounts at all levels above neutral.
o Friendly: 5% discount
o Honored: 10% discount
o Revered: 15% discount
o Exalted: 20% discount
o Quest givers who have available daily quests will have a blue exclamation point instead of a yellow one.
* Pets will try to get behind their targets when engaging in melee combat.
* Racial Abilities
o Dwarf: Gun Specialization now increases chance to critically hit with Guns by 1% rather than increasing weapon skill.
o Gnome: Escape Artist cooldown increased to 1 min, 45 sec.
o Troll: Bow and Thrown Specialization now increases chance to critically hit with those weapons by 1% rather than increasing weapon skill.

PvP

* Battlegrounds
o Daily quests have been added targeting a random battleground for that day. Look for Alliance Brigadier Generals and Horde Warbringers near your faction's battlemasters in all major capitals.
o Dropping the Flag in a battleground will now result in a debuff that will not allow you to pick up the flag again for 3 seconds.
o Druids who are shapeshifted when they receive the Restoration buff from battlegrounds will now correctly regenerate mana.
o Players will now be able to cast spells for free in the Battleground before it begins.
o Players will now be able to cast spells for free for a few seconds after being resurrected by a Spirit Guide in the Battleground.
o Alterac Valley
+ Additional Warmasters no longer report for duty upon destroying an enemy tower. However, destroying an enemy tower still eliminates the associated opposing Warmaster.
+ All Warmasters are linked to each other and their respective Generals and can no longer be pulled individually.
+ Honor from capturing towers has been increased.
+ All Commanders and Lieutenants have left Alterac Valley in search for other battle opportunities.
+ Players will no longer be sent to their starting tunnels on death unless that team controls no graveyards in the battleground.
+ Many NPCs in Stormpike and Frostwolf holds are no longer elite
+ Bonus Honor in Alterac Valley is now only awarded during the battle for destroying enemy towers and slaying the enemy Captain. Upon conclusion of the battle, bonus honor is also awarded for intact towers, a surviving Captain, and for victory in the battle. The total bonus honor awarded should be similar to the previous total.
+ The Horde and Alliance now have a limited number of reinforcements available in the battle for Alterac Valley. The number of reinforcements available is reduced upon player death, loss of towers, and death of Captain Galvangar or Balinda Stonehearth. In addition, all available reinforcements are lost upon the death of General Drek'Thar or Vanndar Stormpike. If a team is reduced to zero reinforcements, the opposing team wins the battle.
+ Towers and Graveyards in Alterac Valley are now captured in 4 minutes (down from 5).
o Eye of the Storm
+ The points awarded from capturing the flag in Eye of the Storm is now increase based on the number of bases the capturing team owns.
o Warsong Gulch, Arathi Basin, Eye of the Storm
+ Additional bonus honor is now awarded upon conclusion of the battle.

Druids

* Barkskin: It is no longer possible to cast this spell while Cycloned.
* Cure Poison and Abolish Poison are now usable in Tree of Life Form.
* Cure Poison, Abolish Poison and Remove Curse range increased to 40 yards.
* Entangling Roots: It is no longer possible for multiple Druids to have Entangling Roots on the same target. In addition, it will now always be removed correctly if multiple Druids overwrite each other's Entangling Roots.
* Feral Attack Power: Items that granted bonus attack power in Cat, Bear, Dire Bear, and Moonkin forms have been re-evaluated. In almost all cases, the attack power on the item has been increased.

WoW Patch 2.2.0

World of Warcraft Client Patch 2.2.0 (09/25/2007)

The latest patch notes can always be found at http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/patchnotes/

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: http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=942815291&sid=1http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=1272012664&sid=1
  • 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.
  • Auction House generated emails for successful auction sales will now have a one-hour delay and is no longer instantaneous.
  • 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.
  • 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. New keybindings have been added to the Key Bindings dialog. 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".

WoW PTR Patch 2.2.0

World of Warcraft PTR Patch 2.2.0

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.
  • 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, depending on the area of the world they are in, along with 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 30 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 combat.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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".
