WOW Client Patch Client Patch 1.9.3 E-mail
Wednesday, 08 February 2006
Many thanks again to the very unethical rogue Gaahnfaust of Crusridge for highlighting us that World of Warcraft was just patched with some fixes related to the content introduced in the previous content patch, but also profession updates, item updates and more. The update seems also to contain something in preparation of the St. Valentine Festivities. Read on for the patch notes.
- World of Warcraft Client Patch 1.9.3 (2006-02-07)

Love is in the Air!
  Are you looking for love?  All of Azeroth soon will be!  As winter
  draws to a close the races are starting to seek that special someone.
  Be on the lookout for amorous individuals!  Put on that special
  perfume or cologne, express your love, and receive gifts in return!
  Prepare yourself... love will soon be in the air!

- Added native support for Intel-powered Macs such as the iMac (Core
  Duo) and MacBook Pro. World of Warcraft is now a Universal
  Application.  Be advised that the minimum supported MacOS X version
  has been changed to 10.3.9; World of Warcraft version 1.9.3 and later
  will not launch on older revisions of MacOS X.

- The default graveyards in Alterac Valley for each side were moved
  further up the tunnels away from the battlegroud exit. This should
  prevent accidentally leaving the battleground.

- Eye for an Eye - This talent will now still do damage when the
  paladin is stunned. In addition, if the critical hit kills the
  paladin, damage will still be dealt to the spellcaster.
- Greater Blessing of Sanctuary - Paladins with Righteous Fury will now
  generate extra threat correctly when this Blessing procs.

- Deadly Poison V - The charges were inadvertently not increased with
  the new rank of the ability. Increased from 105 to 120 charges.
- Slice and Dice - This ability should no longer miss.

- Shield Block - This aura will now correctly be removed when the
  charges are all consumed. However, it is still possible when fighting
  multiple opponents to get extra blocks due to technical restrictions.

- Arcanist Gloves were not receiving the intended spell damage bonus;
  this has been corrected.
- The Stamina and Intellect on Kezan's Unstoppable Taint were
  inadvertently flipped; this has been corrected.
- The Enigma's Answer and Stormcaller's Wrath effects now have tooltips.
- The mana regeneration effect from food no longer causes threat.
- Quicksand Waders are now Bind on Pickup.
- The Slime-coated Leggings now have their proper nature resistance.
- Prophetic Aura, Mageblood Potion, Wizard Oils, and the Mana
  Regeneration bracer enchant no longer generate threat for the wearer,
  and should also provide the increased mana regeneration on normal
  ticks instead of every 5 seconds.
- The Ancient Hakkari Manslayer has the proper icon again.

- The Engineering schematic for the Tranquil Mechanical Yeti now
  requires a Cured Rugged Hide rather than Ice Thistle E'ko so that
  both Horde and Alliance Engineers can make the recipe.
- Stormshroud Gloves are now Bind on Equip.

Quests & Reputation
- Grammar fixed for gossip associated with the quest "Trial of the Sea
  Lion" in Moonglade.
- Fixed a bug with the quest "Glyphed Oaken Branch" that was having the
  quest become available sooner than it should have.
- The reputation modifier of Squire Leoren Mal'derath has been reduced.
- Zandalar Tribe reputation rewards for killing mobs in Zul'Gurub have
  been increased.
- Winterfall Spirit Beads and Deadwood Headdress Feathers now stack in
  quantities of 250.

  Molten Core

  * Shades of Jin'do are now considered Undead.
- Slightly increased the movement of Lethon's Spirit Shades.
