Patch 2.3.2 was a minor patch that released on 8 January 2008.


  • /timetest is a command that can be run to provide information on game performance. /timetest 0 turns the command off. When the command is issued, the next time a player uses a flight master to travel, certain statistics will be measured and displayed at the end of that flight. All weather effects and spawns are shutdown during the test.
  • Effects triggered from being critically hit: Many abilities and talents were changed in 2.3.0 to allow them to trigger from critical strikes that occurred while the player benefiting from them was sitting.
  • Quest givers with blue question marks no longer show up on the minimap.
  • NPC's who you have completed a quest for will display a question mark on mouseover rather than an exclamation point.
  • The bank controls for the guildmaster level of a guild is now grayed out. A guildmaster always has full access to a guild bank and this cannot be changed.
  • A "Withdraw-Repair Only" button has been added to the guild bank controls. If this is set for a guild rank, then that rank cannot actually withdraw funds from the guild bank, but they can still use that daily amount of money for repairs.
  • You will now automatically stand up when attacked, even if the attack doesn't land.
  • Reduced network latency by disabling the Nagle algorithm.


  • Inv misc herb felblossom [Lifebloom]: When this ability is refreshed it will take on the strength of the incoming Lifebloom effect, rather than maintain the existing strength.
  • Ravage (All Ranks) - Damage changed from 350% to 385%



  • Spell frost wizardmark [Cold Snap] (Frost) cooldown reduced. It is now in the Spell frost frost [Ice Block] position in the talent tree. This ability will no longer reset the cooldown on Spell fire firearmor [Fire Ward].
  • Inv misc gem sapphire 02 [Conjure Mana Gem] mana restore variance substantially reduced, (Rank 5 - Emerald) now restores 2340 to 2460 mana and has three charges.
  • Spell frost frost [Ice Block] (Frost) is now available on the trainer to all mages at level 30.
  • Spell frost coldhearted [Icy Veins] (NEW Frost Talent) decreases casting time of all spells by 20% and increases the chance your chilling effects will freeze the target by 10%. Lasts 20 sec. 3 min cooldown. It is now in the Cold Snap position in the talent tree.


  • Spell holy crusaderstrike [Crusader Strike] (Retribution) now causes 110% of weapon damage and no longer gains any bonus from spell damage.
  • Spell holy sealoffury [Righteous Fury]: This spell will no longer cost twice the listed mana to cast.
  • Sanctified Judgements (Retribution) now returns 80% of the Seal's mana cost, increased from 50%.


  • Ability rogue ambush [Ambush]: The damage multiplier on this ability has been increased from 250% to 275%.
  • Ability rogue cheatdeath [Cheat Death]: When multiple attacks land simultaneously, all those resolved after the attack which triggered Cheat Death will now have their damage reduced by 90% as intended. However, the combat log will still report them doing full damage.
  • Spell shadow lifedrain [Hemorrhage]: Rank 4 of this ability no longer has its charges consumed by non-physical attacks and spells.
  • Spell shadow lifedrain [Hemorrhage]: Weapon damage reduced from 125% to 110%, but the damage debuff has been increased.
  • Spell shadow lifedrain [Hemorrhage]: This ability now correctly does additional damage when its debuff has already been applied.
  • Spell shadow antishadow [Preparation] now resets the cooldown of Shadowstep and no longer resets the cooldown of Spell shadow shadowworddominate [Adrenaline Rush].
  • Ability rogue shadowstep [Shadowstep] now adds a 3 second, 70% movement speed increase.
  • Ability rogue sinistercalling [Sinister Calling] now also increases the percentage damage bonus of Spell shadow lifedrain [Hemorrhage] and Ability backstab [Backstab] by 2/4/6/8/10%.



  • The health cost taken from the Warlock after using Spell shadow lifedrain [Health Funnel] will now remain consistent between uses.


  • Ability warrior innerrage [Defiance]: The expertise granted by this talent now works properly in all stances.
  • Warriors no longer lose rage when using a macro to enter a stance they're already in.



  • Fixed an issue with Transmute Mastery where the proc rate was lower than intended.
