  • New crafted sets have been added that require reagents found only in Zul'Gurub or through the reputation gained from adventuring therein.
  • Only spells and abilities that target enemy units will cancel the World Enlarger effect.
  • Black Lotus is no longer soulbound.
  • Blackfury and Black Amnesty now bind when equipped.
  • Catseye Goggles have had their stealth detection increased somewhat.
  • The Mooncloth Robe pattern changed so it displays as white quality instead of blue since it is vendor purchased.
  • The Effects of Flasks will now persist through death.
  • Free Action potions can now be dispelled.
  • Wildvine potions have been improved.
  • Dreamless Sleep potions now take full effect in 12 seconds instead of 15.
  • There is now a Horde cooking recipe that uses Tender Crocolisk Meat found at Brackenwall Village.
  • Dark Iron Boots have been added as Blacksmithing plans that require Exalted reputation with the Thorium Brotherhood.
  • Timbermaw Reputation Recipes are no longer sold in limited quanities with a restock time. If you have the reputation, you will always be able to buy the recipe.
  • Significantly more Stranglekelp has started washing ashore to the beaches of the world.
  • Dark Iron mineral nodes will now sometimes appear in the Burning Steppes and Searing Gorge.
  • Enchanting an item with an enchantment that will cause the item to become soulbound will now prompt the enchanter with a warning message before the enchantment is cast.
  • The Gnomish Death Ray now only can be cast if the target is within 20 yards. Previously you could cast this on players outside that range, even though the spell immediately failed.
  • Cured Rugged hides now stack to 10 instead of 5.
  • A great number of quests and events added to Zul'Gurub.
  • A level 50 class quest has been added for the Rogue (Lord Ravenholdt in Ravenholdt Manor), Priest (Greta Mosshoof in Felwood), Mage (Archmage Xylem in Azshara), and Hunter (Ogtinc in Azshara).
  • Reputation gains given to a player on the Alliance, Horde, or Steamwheedle Cartel factions directly will now cascade down to member factions through the middle of the Exalted reputation level.
  • The summoning crystals of Andorhal have been removed; as a result, Araj the Summoner will behave like a normal spawn. The respawn time on Araj once he is slain is 10-15 minutes. It should be noted that the spawns surrounding where he holds dominion have been maintained; players seeking to defeat him should not be shy about bringing friends with them.
  • Araj the Summoner now has increased hit points and does increased melee damage.
  • Araj the Summoner no longer drops a Corruptor's Scourgestone 100% of the time when killed.
  • The text for the Horde and Alliance versions of "Araj's Scarab" now reflect the changes done to the Araj encounter.
  • The text for the Horde and Alliance versions of "Alas, Andorhal" now reflect the changes done to the Araj encounter.
  • The Argent Dawn quest "The Active Agent" now offers a choice of rewards: Seal of the Dawn and Rune of the Dawn. Both may be used just like an Argent Dawn Commission.
  • Players seeking to replace their Seal of the Dawn (or get a Rune of the Dawn instead) once they've finished "The Active Agent" quest should speak with Betina Bigglezink in Eastern Plaguelands.
  • The Seal of the Dawn is now unique, no longer has any cash value, and is no longer disenchantable.
  • The level 5 quests had the ranged weapon removed from their reward options. This was done to make sure hunters upgrade their melee damage in the levels before obtaining a pet.
  • Added text to the Test of Endurance quest to indicate you might need to bring some friends along.
  • The amount of XP and Stormwind reputation has been increased for completing "Hilary's Necklace" quest.
  • Torek in Ashenvale (the questgiver for Torek's Assault) is now PvP enabling.
  • Important Blackrock Documents for the Horde quest, "Warlord's Command," no longer despawn. They can still randomly spawn at one of four locations.
  • Two new quests have been added to Thorium Point in the Searing Gorge for Thorium Brotherhood reputation turnin for players with neutral faction. You will now be able to turn in Iron and Heavy Leather to increase your reputation with the Brotherhood.
  • "The Darkreaver Menace" quest has had its reward improved; any Shaman who has already completed the quest should speak to Sagorne Creststrider in Orgrimmar to get their new reward.
  • The Boulderslide Ravine quest in Stonetalon Mountains now more clearly points players to the Boulderslide Ravine.
  • The original Hakkar quest (the one that involved killing Hakkar's Avatar in the Sunken Temple) has been extended, and now offers a reward.
  • Completing the initial Magram or Gelkis quest in Desolace now gives appropriate positive and negative reputation gains.
  • The completion dialogue for the "A Rogue's Deal" quest has been clarified.
  • All 8 versions of the "A Donation of Runecloth" quest have had their quest text clarified.
  • Certain mobs and NPCs that erroneously had plus or minus reputation gains on kills for Horde or Alliance have been corrected.
  • Various quest typos fixed.
Raids and Dungeons
  • Characters will now receive an error when attempting to enter a raid dungeon if the reason they cannot enter is because they are not in a raid group.
  • Fixed a bug that was preventing Rallying Cry of the Dragon Slayer to fire when Onyxia's head was turned in (assuming a head was not already up).
  • You can now no longer avoid Onyxia's confuse effect by jumping or moving erratically.
  • Death Knight Darkreaver in Scholomance shouldn't be so noisy anymore.
  • The Ogre Tannin Basket in Dire Maul should stick around longer if someone opens it and does not initially loot the tannin from it.
  • A few Molten Core bosses now drop Fiery or Lava Cores.
