Today's Cataclysm hotfixes have just been posted! Notable changes include:
will no longer receive twice the benefit from the Feral druid Mastery
Mastery: Razor Claws
's mana regeneration component has been increased from 1.5/2/2.5 to 2/4/6%.
's mana regeneration component has been increased from 10/20% to 20/40%.
) Troll druids in particular, when shapeshifting into Cat/Bear form, were dealing an extra 5% damage to themselves via Beast Slaying when afflicted by
's Asphyxiate. This caused them to die instead of being taken down to 1 health. This has been corrected and Asphyxiate now properly ignores damage modifiers.
) The quest requirements for the achievement To Hellfire and Back have been lowered for both Horde and Alliance characters. Horde characters need to complete 86 quests and Alliance characters need to complete 76.
Obsidum Ore now spawns slightly less frequently in Mount Hyjal.

Latest Cataclysm Hotfixes Now Live!

Another day, another batch of hotfixes! Blizzard is clearly working around the clock to correct issues players are experiencing since Cataclysm, and I must commend 'em for it, even though they
been stealth nerfing things here and there.
Some noteable changes/fixes include:
Players should always be properly granted credit for completing the "Defending the Rift" quest event. (Vashj'ir)
Guild experience caps were being hit faster than expected. As a result, guild experience gained through questing has been reduced. (
See our blog
The droprates on all Bind-on-Equip items in Cataclysm dungeons have been reduced.
Disenchanted green items are now giving more materials as the item levels increase. This change also ensures armor items give dust more often than essence, and that weapons give more essence than dust.
and most importantly
Sheep packs no longer instantly respawn. (Uldum)
That's right, no more straight cheesing
