More and more stuff for 2.1:

http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=94959528&sid=1

With the approach of the next content patch, we thought we would share a few more new additions with you.

Trinkets: New Darkmoon cards

You will now have the chance to find additional Darkmoon cards (Lunacy, Storms, Furies and Blessings) on high level creatures in Outlands, which you can turn in to the Darkmoon Faire to make powerful new Darkmoon card trinkets.

New Graveyards

Two new graveyards have been added to Blade's Edge Mountains.

New Flypaths

New flight points:

Felwood, Emerald Sanctuary (Both)

Ashenvale, Forest Song (Alliance)

New flight paths:

Stormwind <-> Thorium Point

Grom'gol Base Camp <-> Flame Crest

Ratchet <-> Gadgetzan, Astranaar, Brackenwall Village

Brackenwall Village <-> Ratchet, Camp Taurajo, Freewind Post

Thunderbluff <-> Zoram'gar Outpost

Evergrove <-> Toshley's Station

Honor Hold <-> Shattrath

In addition, many flight paths have been adjusted to be shorter, faster flights.

Those new decks are straight out of those leaked patch notes from a few days ago, interesting. The Blade's Edge graveyards, too.

I wonder if they'll just be upgraded versions of the existing Darkmoon decks or what?

-Shadow Word: Death cooldown increased to 12 seconds

Very cool, thanks for passing it along. I've been hoping for Darkmoon upgrades; I'm glad to see that someone was "listening" :)

Those notes are probably real after seeing a lot of these recently announced 2.1 changes/additions. It wouldn't surprise me either; if you read the FoH forums there's a lot of disregard for respecting privacy between developers and players that they communicate with.

Nice notes, I am glad their are new Darkmoon Trinkets, trinkets in general are lacking in general so it is nice to have other options. Plus it gives the causal player something else to do in between the new quest zones.

Decreasing flight path time is always something I wanted put in, that is great, especially with the auto-unstuck fix.

That nerf would be extremly stupid, all it would do is make us chain mana potions (like everyone else). It would do nothing about our healing ability, it would just drive us to consumables.

I don't even get it - why NOW? Now that our crit rating is actually down to <25% unbuffed - and that's with insane gear

When 2.0 came out and Nax paladins sported 45% HL crit with the new it would have made more sense.

There was obviously a problem with Paladin Healing in relation to Holy/Disc Priests. Is this the correct answer? I dunno, my highest pally alt is 24. But I think Holy/Disc Priests should be the better straight up healer whereas pallies would bring more utility and stuff.

There's definitely a high chance those are legit but I'm pretty sure they are extremely incomplete. Anyway if that's ALL the priest changes then holy priests are dead forever. Here's hoping.

So three Warrior nerfs inc. All of them probably based on the Arena. How long do you think the MS debuff is going to last in its current state? Why are there not separate rulesets again?

Once again, Blizzard chooses to nerf a class instead of fixing another. The Illumination nerf isn't necessary, but a serious look at the Priest class is.

I still don't see anyone dropping Divine Spirit for Circle of Healing. They really need to make that trainable, or drop it bring it up a level so that you can get both.

And I'm ecstatic about the Darkmoon Faire stuff. I loved it before and I'm glad it continues! They really seem interested in maintaining a high level of 5 man content and solo play :D

You guys have jumped to some massive conclusions here. So because there are some new Darkmoon Cards, suddenely everything else in some possible fake patch notes are real?

How about waiting until real Patch Notes come out, then start complaint mode.

*IF* those heaped notes are correct - the change to commanding shout is clearly on the "bugfix" side of things. I wonder if the DW/Enrage change just means that if both are active, you only receive the benefit of the stronger effect? Not a big deal to me, personally, but it is interesting since this is the first instance I recall where a buff and a debuff don't stack.

They won't nerf MS, as if they did you'd lose any and all reason to bring a Warrior to the arenas if you did.

I think that sums it up rather well. I figure they've got a long list they're working on, and as they get the code working properly (hopefully) they're letting us know what will be in the next patch. At least I certainly hope that's what is happening, I for one am tired of having a thread discussing the patch notes, and a thread discussing the 20 hidden changes they didn't bother telling us about.

OMFG, they're going to put those flight paths in now after I just leveled the last characters I'll ever level through those zones. Super time saver for anyone else who will level if there is such a thing this late in the game. I wish I understood the priority they put for evaluating travel times and why this wasn't dealt with earlier.

EDIT: can someone post a link to these spoofed patch notes everbody is referring to, I feel out of the loop.

Shadow priests and Vampiric Touch.

The total mana regen available to a Holy paladin is bordering silly. "lol, I don't run out of mana anymore"

This mana regen comes from other classes (VT, VE + SA), consumables, and talents/abilities. Consumables are being nerfed/changed in 2.1; S-Priests were slightly nerfed a few patches ago (slightly reduced coefficients and VE, I think), but I think Blizzard seems mostly happy with where S-Priests are in utility/power. That leaves talents/abilities.

IF the change happens, it doesn't affect your healing power, just your endurance. It makes other healing spec'd classes relatively more desirable (maybe), and might change the tendency of raids to stack Holy paladins as healers. (which is kinda ironic, considering paladin complaints in WoW 1.0 and various changes made to the class then)

Nite Moogle's edit was definitely in place when you posted this so....look up.

Agree with you, its a bugfix but its also a nerf. Its been live for 3 months.

Honestly the first point of Flurry being 10% (while the next four are just 5%) makes no sense either but why nerf Warrior Flurry and not Shaman Flurry? Oversight?

The Enrage/Deathwish thing though, thats a big nerf any way you slice it. I imagine that, yes, the new intended function will be that if you have Enrage and DW active you do 25% more damage not 25+20.

Illumination thing would be pretty stupid, paladins are fine, priests need to be looked at.

As for paladin utlity, well the only utility I bring is my blessing. With 20 points in prot I'd need a whole other set of gear to even attempt to tank anything when I'm still working on my healing gear. DPS = lol. Healing is pretty much the only thing I can do and at that I have very few tools compared to other classes. The TBC stigma is you don't have "this is the best, no questions asked," if they nerf paladin healing to where we are on par with priests for single target healing priests will be the best healers no questions asked and I'll just be along for the ride on raids. Oh, and ofcourse, how could I forget my blessing /sarcasm

Regardles, it's pointless to discuss until it's in the real patchnotes and even then who knows how much of it will make live.

% buffs always stacked multiplicatively [sp] so enrage and deathwish was 1.25*1.2~1.49 or about 49%. makes you wonder how will the zerker buff and AP for example would stack now.

Not only that, but most of the +healing plate is itemized with spell crit instead of MP5. Changing illumination to restore 50% mana leaves most paladins with crap healing gear. Are they going to go back and fix all those items if they go through with this? Not bloody likely.

If they move enrage into the pvp (arms) tree I'm fine with having it not stack with deathwish. It's godawful if your goal is pve dps although it's lovely for farming (which we do amazingly anyways).

They can take my flurry over my cold dead body though. It really is the defining talent of the fury (flurry) tree.

Truthfully, enrage + aoe packs + victory rush feels pretty unintended (see illhoof imps).

We'll see what we shall see when the notes go up. I have the feeling we were due for ptr this week (since the skywall bonechewer cluster went to hell on monday) but something came up.
