Bug Fixes

  • Characters who are not of the same race or class are once again able to view each others' professions linked in chat.
  • Fixed an issue in which player and pet nameplates were appearing larger than normal.
  • Thrall's throne has been adjusted back to its proper size and the base replaced. He will no longer need to defy gravity.
  • Fixed an issue with a display error on druid leather helms.
  • Corrected an issue for GeForce2/ATI 7 series card users that would result in critical errors for select actions in game. As a result certain projected textures, like spell effects and targeting circles, will no longer render on some terrain objects.

Dungeons and Raids

    • Fixed an issue with the outside map not appearing correctly.
    • Fixed an issue where an incorrect skin was being applied to certain classes/races when the Human Illusion buff is cast upon them.

    • The mob packs in the XT-002 Deconstructor encounter can now be engaged separately and are no longer linked.
  • The Nexus
    • The Combat Chaotic Rifts can no longer be killed from range before pulling mob groups. Attacking them will aggro the entire group.
