World of Warcraft 5.4.2 patch hits the test realms

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

By on December 6, 2013 at 9:03 am

The latest update to World of Warcraft and its millions of Jack Black-loving occupants has gone live on the Public Test Realms. This patch is a fairly meagre one, all things considered, with only one notable balance change and the rest being more UI changes than anything else.

The patch notes from Battle.net are below:

Warrior

  • Intervene no longer removes movement-impairing effects on use. The talent Safeguard will continue to remove movement-impairing effects.

Raids, Dungeons, and Scenarios

  • Cross-Realm raid browser now has new categories for Mists of Pandaria World Bosses (Celestials and Ordos) and Flexible raid difficulty for Siege of Orgrimmar. The cross-realm raid browser is accessed through the ‘Social Pane’ (bound to the O key by default) and look for the ‘Raid’ tab on the bottom right.
  • From there you can set the character as looking to join a raid or browse players that are forming up for a raid.
  • For more information on this change, please see the thread titled Cross-Realm Raid Browser on the PTR Discussion forum.
  • Players are now able to place raid markers in the world even while dead.

Items

  • Players are now able to mail account-bound items to other characters that reside on a different realm on the same account. To send cross-realm mail: enter the character’s name, followed by a hyphen “-”, followed by the realm name. Note that cross-realm mail can only send account-bound items, not other items or gold.

UI

  • The Customer Support button has moved. Customer support can now be reached in-game by selecting Help option through the Game Menu (Game Menu is bound to the Escape key by default).

So, that’s that then. Intervene works properly for Warriors again and the rest of the world is a little more user-friendly. Not the earth-shattering update WoW fans might have wanted for a Friday, but sometimes you’ve gotta do these things one step at a time.

The second last point is a pretty major step – and a welcome one if you have an alt-heavy account like mine :P.

 

Cant wait for this! Also I hope that some cool addons will be avaible soon for this patch at 99WoWguides website.
