    • Bonuses from Embrace of the Shale Spider and Blessing of Forgotten Kings can no longer stack.
    • Completing Archaeology projects will once again contribute to the guild achievement Making History once the player relogs.
    • The Orgrimmar portal to Mount Hyjal should now appear for players who flew directly into Hyjal to start questing, rather than take the Moonglade portal.
    • The old and busted Winter's Veil decorations in Brill have been disabled.
  • Classes

      • Glyph of Seal of Insight now correctly increases healing done by Word of Glory and Light of Dawn while Seal of Insight is active.
    • Shaman
      • The Mana Tide Totem hotfix from yesterday has been reverted. The Mana Tide buff no longer stacks, as this had a major impact on encounter design.
    • Warlocks
      • It is no longer possible to waste a Soulstone by attempting to use it on a dead target. The player will receive an Invalid Target error message at the completion of their channel. In a future patch, we intend this functionality to work correctly, allowing a Soulstone to be used to instantly resurrect a dead target.
