– World of Warcraft Client Patch 1.10.0

New High-Level Armor Sets!
Adventurers of Azeroth can now quest to upgrade their previous Rare-
quality Dungeon set to a new, higher-quality set, including epic gear!
These tasks include all-new boss encounters, so prepare your finest
group of dungeon-delvers and prepare for a challenge!

Weather has been introduced in the following areas around Azeroth:
– Elwynn Forest
– Tirisfal Glades
– Dun Morogh
– Darkshore
– Alterac Mountains
– Stranglethorn Vale
– Feralas
– Un”Goro Crater
– Tanaris
– Winterspring
– Ahn”Qiraj
We will be adding more weather to the world as time progresses; this
is simply the beginning!

High-Level Instance Changes
Along with the new Armor Sets, the high-level 5-10 man dungeons have
received some changes regarding loot. Many items have been improved
in quality and use. In addition, several epic items, such as
Headmaster”s Charge and the Runeblade of Baron Rivendare, have had
their drop rates significantly increased. In order to preserve the
challenge of these dungeons, they have had their instance caps
lowered. Stratholme, Scholomance, and Blackrock Depths now allow a
maximum of five players inside, and Blackrock Spire allows a maximum
of ten.

Quest Experience to Gold Conversion at Level 60
Previously, quest experience was wasted if one completed a quest at
level 60. In this patch, any quests done at maximum level will have
their experience reward converted to a healthy amount of gold, thus
adding additional incentive to completing those quests in your log
once you hit 60.

New Final Destination Flight Paths!
If you”re making several jumps to get to your destination, you will
now be able to choose that flight path from your initial Flight
Master. The costs will remain the same, but you no longer need to
manually click on each path. The UI has also been improved

– All spells/abilities that remove existing effects (e.g. Dispel Magic,
Cleanse, Remove Curse etc…) will now verify that there is an effect
that can be removed before casting.
– You will no longer lose your current target when affected by a crowd
control spell (e.g. Fear, Polymorph etc…).
– Various tooltips updated.

caster. This was being abused to land debuffs without getting on the

a small bonus coefficient from spell damage items and effects.

charge. Lasts 10 minutes, mana cost increased.

has been reduced to generate the same amount of healing per cast time
as before the cast time was reduced. Rank 2, 3, and 4, the mana cost

generated. The net effect on all ranks is that the healing per mana
