  • A new Berserker stance is being added.

    Mages
  • Detect Magic will no longer cause hate.

  • A new Guild Management system. (Finally more designs!!) http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/info/bas ... dtab.shtml

    Mail
  • The mail system was created was to provide
    an option for players to trade items to themselves (i.e. from character to character). http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/info/basics/mail.shtml

    Inns Tired? Need a nap?
  • Players will no longer need to check into an inn in order to rest when visiting one of the six main cities.

    2. Ironforge
    3. Orgrimmar
    4. Stormwind
    5. Thunder Bluff
    6. The Undercity
  • Players will still need to see the innkeeper to bind themselves to the city, or to receive their initial hearthstone.

    Locked Characters?
  • Old characters will be unlocked for the next patch!
  • Skill points have been assigned to each character by the development team.

Alright... Sorry. But this is a direct quote from Kat:
"No more teasers tonight Kitty. While I do realize that the majority of folks enjoy them, there are some that they disappoint and upset so I'd prefer to just leave things be for the remainder of the evening.

I too am disappointed as I was truly excited about running around with my new pet kitty later this evening. There’s always Monday to look forward to and more fun to come!

~Kat :)"

"running around with my new pet kitty" sounds like a hunter?

Confirmed? No, and you'll also notice she talks about every other class being able to get a non combative pet.

Thanks Z for posting this info, as I've been very curious about the guts of the patch. :)

Rogues: hmm. I would think that with cheap shot giving out two combo points that is why no one really uses backstab. Granted, I don't have any of the upper end rogue spells, but imo I'm glad that they're looking at bs. It annoys me that I don't use certain spells and that I've spent money on them to check 'em out. ;) And we get a new finishing move?!! Sweet. :)

Priests' fixes look nice: mana reduction on usage, and does new spell mean that some sort of crowd control is readministered here? I hope so.

tibs out
Tibsdalai UD Priest lvl 60
101/150 Herbalism
75/150 Alchemy

Tibspeace Tauren Druid lvl 30
Tibsnooks Undead Mage lvl 18

I'm wondering when/if "slow" will be given and to which class, I would guess mage but mage already has various slowing spells.
