The New Patch: What we’ve seen so far.

The server is shutting down right now, so we thought we would take this opportunity to do a brief overview of what we saw in the short amount of time that we were online.

1. Some talents are screwy. Currently Trap Mastery only reduces resist chance and nothing else. Maybe a bug, but disappointing. And the Stamina -> AP talent keeps resetting itself.

2. I finally picked up a book to learn a higher quality Frostweave Bandage but it is bugged, listing two different required skill levels.

3. Disengage rocks. It’s true. Video uploading as we speak . . err, type I suppose.

4. Lots of new tamable animals for your pet collecting pleasure. Check out Mania for more information.

5. Roar of Sacrifice has been changed or fixed depending on how you look at it. Apparently it was never meant to transfer damage to your pet (or if it was, the current implementation doesn’t suggest that). It now has a 30 second cooldown that provides you with a damage shield equal to 50% of your pet’s total health. Think Power Word: Shield.

6. Serpent Sting is currently showing it as doing 1607 damage.
