Blizzard has released patch notes for World of Warcraft's upcoming 2.4.3 update through its public test realm. While the update is still ironing out the kinks and currently has no official street date, expect to see changes to classes, quests, items, in addition to the usual bug fixes. A general sampling of the notes can be seen below:
* Dispel effects will no longer attempt to remove effects that have 100% dispel resistance. * Parry Rating, Defense Rating, and Block Rating: Low-level players will now convert these ratings into their corresponding defensive stats at the same rate as level 34 players. * Haris Pilton has launched a new line of bags and jewelry. Check her out in the World's End Tavern! * Mounts at 30?! Yes, it's true: Apprentice Riding and mounts are now available at level 30. Training costs 35 gold. * Blood Elf flightmasters outside of Silvermoon City and Tranquillien have traded in their bats for glorious fire-breathing dragonhawks. * Alcohol cooldowns have been rolled into Drinks: All 10-second cooldowns have been removed and replaced with the 1-second Drink cooldown. * Numerous flying non-combat pets have had their flight height modified to no longer skim along the ground: captured firefly, dragonhawk hatchlings, moths, owls, parrots, phoenix hatchling, spirit of summer, sprite darter, and tiny sporebat. * Nether Ray Fry (a non-combat pet) is now available from the Skyguard * Quartermaster. This requires an Exalted reputation with Sha'tari Skyguard. * Equipping an item will now cancel any spell cast currently in progress. * Placing an item in your bank will now cancel any spell cast currently in progress if the spell was cast by that item. * You can no longer move backwards to stop racing rams. * When a stun wears off, the creature that was stunned will prefer the last target with the highest threat, versus the current target.
