  • A new feat of strength with an associated title, "the Camel-Hoarder", has been added for players that have bested Dormus and obtained the Reins of the Grey Riding Camel -- because there must always be a Camel-Hoarder.
Рыцарь смерти
  • Desecration no longer triggers when an applicable strike hits a snare-immune target. This is primarily to avoid unnecessary spell effect clutter during boss encounters.
  • Frostbolt damage has been increased by 10%.
  • Fingers of Frost bonus damage applied to Ice Lance has been increased to 25%, up from 15%.
  • Illuminated Healing shield duration is now 15 seconds, up from 8 seconds. In addition, Illuminated Healing has been increased to provide 1.5% effect per mastery, up from 1.25%.
  • Improved Fire Nova has been redesigned and replaced by a talent called Seasoned Winds. When an enemy spell cast is successfully prevented with Wind Shear, the shaman gains magical resistance (in an amount equal to what a protection totem/aura would grant, stacking with such buffs) to the spell school(s) of the interrupted spell (except for Holy spells), lasting 10 seconds.

The Mechanar

  • Postboxes no longer require keys to open, because really, who locks their postboxes anymore when they''re all undead? It''s just people sending coupons for brains anyway.
  • The Postmaster now spawns when 3 of any postbox are opened.

  • The Staff of Prehistoria is no longer required to open the door in the Map Room.
  • Baelog''s chest has been given new loot. If it''s grey it''s good, right?

  • Players are now rewarded guild experience for Honorable Kills in the field.

  • Maelstrom Crystals are now available for purchase with Honor or Justice Points from the associated commodities vendors.

  • The Ring of Valor has returned! It should now be playable again in the Arena map rotation.
  • New starting areas have been added for Ring of Valor. Players will no longer enter the Arena on the elevator. It''s been removed. Instead players will start in a room at opposite ends of the Arena.

  • Loot from the creatures Garr, Julak-Doom, Mobus, and Poseidus has been adjusted to be commensurate to their rarity and invested effort.

Пользовательский интерфейс
