There were several situations on transports or moving objects where players were receiving Movement Enforcement Error messaging, which should now be corrected.
Players using Mobile Guild Chat should no longer sometimes receive error messages incorrectly stating they are not in a guild.

News Roundup: Dragonwrath Legendary Staff Clarifications, 4.2 Firelands Preview Updated
2011/05/10 at 7:05 PM
Just a small handful of Blizzard posts today, as it's the start of the week and we haven't been completely flooded with new info from the Blues (though there have been many welcome additions in the latest PTR patches, as I'm sure you guys have noticed)! As expected, most of the forum discussion has focused around since it has finally been datamined (with its datamined stats). I'd like to take this moment to remind you guys that (as always)
that has been datamined from the PTR files is subject to change. All of it. Even the things Blizzard says themselves in their patch notes is subject to change. Remember that the Public Test Realms are just that -
realms - and that you may not be seeing the final version of some of these awesome items which are planned to go live. :)

of the 4.2 PTR has revealed quite a few new quests, including Hyjal daily quests and (most importantly) new quests related to the
Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest
questline! We've put together a guide to the quest chain (as it currently exists) detailing the challenge players will have to undertake in order to complete this truly legendary adventure! There aren't very many details on the sources for the various quest items that will drop in , though Blizzard has stated that the quests will be challenging for the entire guild involved (which is why they'll all get that cute )! It may be similar to creation of the

Not very many details have been revealed about the staff item itself, though Blizzard has confirmed that the stats and bonuses will favor offensive casters (DPS). They have also confirmed that the staff will feature the incredible effect of changing your character into a dragon. No details yet on how exactly

Things have been a little quiet lately in the wake of the massive amount of 4.2 details Blizzard has shared with us lately, but today we've got confirmation from Zarhym that the 4.2 Public Test Realms will come up "soon" (most likely sooner than we think!), including all of the changes documented in the recently published

In addition, there's a few blue posts regarding dungeon difficulty (seems all anyone can talk about lately) and some clarification on the justification of the 4.2 change to crowd control. Personally, I think this change is awesome and I'm all for it - I've always hated the messiness of coordination and execution of crowd control (involving both friends
strangers) and this change is a welcome convenience. Of course, many players don't agree with the change and are making their opinions heard. Let's see what Blizzard has to say on the matter - and tell us what
