Freshly leaked patch notes...again.
Posted 10 April 2007 - 07:58 PM
It looks like some of the stuff has been taken from some of R&D and PVP forums but some notes look almost legitimate.
For example hunter's entrapment reduced to 4 seconds, I've seen post about this long ago on wow forums and it could be that it was taken from there, but on the other hand Hunter's Mark increases with every ranged attack could work like Winter's Chill - mage talent. Which would be beneficial to hunters.
-Bear Mangle damage increased by +15% but bonus threat has been reduced so threat should be the same
-Omen of Clarity no longer castable in Moonkin or Tree
-Swiftmend will now properly penalize +healing benefits for casting low rank Rejuvs or Regrowths
-Barkskin now reduces all damage taken, duration reduced to 12 second with cooldown reduced to 1 minute, Tooltip changed to say it can be used while frozen, incapacitated, cowering in fear (functionality always present but wasn't in the tooltip)
-Cyclone will no longer work on hunters with "The Beast Within" active or hunter pets wtih "Bestial Wrath" active
-Epic Flight Form quest opened up similar in nature to Paladin/Warlock epic mount quests. Also adds a new boss to Sethikk Halls
-New avoidance ability for pets reducing damage from AOE spells & abilities
-New cobra reflexes ability for pets that increases atk spd but reduces damage
-Entrapment duration reduced to 4 seconds and now subject to diminishing returns in PvP
-Expose weakness changed so triggers with 33/66/100% chance at 1/2/3 talent points
-Hunter's Mark now becomes stronger each time the target is struck by a ranged attack
-Survival Instincts now also increase atk pwr by 2%/4%
-Pet mending changed somehow
-Illumination only gives 50% of the mana cost of crit heals also returns correct mana amount when used with rank 4 or 5 of Holy Shock
-Seal of Righteousness no longer gives additional chances for weapon procs to trigger
-Seal of Blood no longer gives additional chances for weapon procs to trigger
-Stoicism should now properly affect all magic effects cast by a paladin and will no longer apply double its benefit to Blessing of Might and Blessing of Wisdom
-Avenging Wrath and Divine Shield can't be used together anymore (they are fixing how forbearance works for these apparently)
-Binding Heal mana cost has been reduced by 32%
-Circle of Healing effect increased
-Shadow Word: Death cooldown increased to 12 seconds
-Pain Suppression now reduces damage taken by 65% and increase dispel resistance by 65% for the duration
-Windfury Weapon, mixing 2 ranks while dual wielding will no longer increase the number of windfury procs
-Frostbrand Weapon, now properly receives increased effect from spell damage
-Spell Lock duration reduced to 5 seconds (Rank 1) and 6 seconds (Rank 2), cooldown reduced to 24 seconds
-Flurry has had atk spd increases reduced to 5/10/15/20/25% from 10/15/20/25/30
-Death Wish and Enrage no longer stack
-Commanding Shout now increases your max health but your health stays a constant percentage
-All items of Tier 5 and above quality have been upgraded to reflect their intended power
-Armor: All items that spent part of their budget on increased armor have been reevaluated. Some have added armor while others have gained additional bonuses.
-Heroic instances will now always drop epic loot off the end boss and all heroic bosses have a chance for epic gems
-Additional darkmoon cards can now be found on high level outland creatures. They can be turned in to the darkmoon faire to make powerful new darkmoon card trinkets. Look for Lunacy, Storms, Furies and Blessings cards.
-Alcohol Stam buffs no longer stack with stam buffs from other foods
-Trash before Hydross and around Lurker (Blizzard calls them the six pumping stations) have had respawn timer increased from 45 minutes to 2 hours
-Trash no longer respawns if the boss nearby has been killed
-Lady Vashj will no longer use Persuasion
-Tidewalker Lurkers no longer call for help from nearby creatures
-Greyheart Technicians are now easier to kill and deal less damage
-Coilfang Priesttesses may now be polymorphed.

It reads like something actually sent to someone by an insider paraphrasing real changes. If it's a hoax, it's clever.

However there are a few things listed that are real (Druid epic flight form). Question is were these "leaked" notes posted before Blizzard posted their thread on the offical forums?
