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[sic] exit. This should prevent accidentally leaving the battleground.
  • The chokepoint building leading to the towers in the Horde base in Alterac Valley will no longer dismount players.


  • Spell holy eyeforaneye [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.
  • Spell holy greaterblessingofsanctuary [Greater Blessing of Sanctuary] - Paladins with Spell holy sealoffury [Righteous Fury] will now generate extra threat correctly when this Blessing procs.


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


  • Ability defend [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.
