Patch 3.1.2 is a minor patch dealing with bug fixes and balance changes.


  • Equipment Manager: When enabled from the Interface Options menu, this feature will allow players to store sets of equipment, easily swap between saved sets using hotkeys, and pull items directly from backpacks or bank slots (must be at the bank to equip inventory from the bank).
  • New art textures have been added for Argent Tournament mounts. Any mounts already purchased from the Argent Tournament vendors will be updated automatically. Argent Tournament mounts with the old textures will still be available for purchase from the Argent Tournament vendors for a small Ability paladin artofwar [Champion's Seal] and gold cost (standard faction requirements apply).


  • Vehicle health and damage output in Strand of the Ancients and Lake Wintergrasp now scale with the item level of the operator's gear. Power scaling is now 1% damage and 1% health per average item level.
  • All Lake Wintergrasp daily quests have been changed to a weekly format. The honor and [Stone Keeper's Shards] rewarded for completing these quests have been increased to compensate.
  • The bonus honor for winning the battle in Wintergrasp and controlling/destroying towers has been reduced.


Death knights[]




  • Mirror Images: The images summoned by this spell will now target the creature that most hates the Mage, and should no longer cast Spell fire fireball [Fire Blast] or Spell frost frostbolt02 [Frostbolt] on targets that are affected by crowd control debuffs that break immediately on damage unless they are already casting these spells when crowd control is applied.



  • Spell holy divinehymn [Divine Hymn]: Healing and healing scaling reduced by 30%. Buff on affected players changed from 15% to 10%.
  • Spell holy holyprotection [Renewed Hope]: Effect can no longer be dispelled.
  • Ability priest soulwarding [Soul Warding]: Mana cost reduction is now 15% down from 30%.


  • Spell fire fireball [Conflagrate] updated: Consumes an Immolate or Ability warlock shadowflame [Shadowflame] effect on the enemy target to instantly deal damage equal to 12 seconds of your Immolate, or 8 seconds of your Shadowflame.
  • Ability warlock fireandbrimstone [Fire and Brimstone]: No longer increases the damage of your Spell fire immolation [Immolate] spell, but now increases the bonus damage your Spell fire burnout [Incinerate] deals to targets afflicted by your Immolate by 6/12/18/24/30%.
  • Spell shadow netherprotection [Nether Protection] reduced to 30% damage reduction, down from 60%.
  • Sacrifice (Voidwalker) redesigned: Sacrifices a portion of the Voidwalker's health, giving its master a shield that will absorb X damage for 30 seconds. While the shield holds, spell casting will not be interrupted by damage. 1-minute cooldown.
  • Spell shadow shadowandflame [Shadow and Flame]: Now also includes Spell shadow scourgebuild [Shadowburn].


  • Ability warrior bullrush [Juggernaut]: Critical strike chance bonus reduced to 25%, down from 100%.

Bug fixes[]

Death knights[]

  • Spell shadow antimagicshell [Anti-Magic Shell]: Tooltip error corrected.
  • Spell deathknight bloodboil [Blood Boil]: If no target is available for Blood Boil to hit, the spell will now cast and consume a blood rune but generate no runic power.


  • Ability druid mangle [Maim]: Rank 2 of this ability is properly considered a stun and can be escaped by Spell arcane blink [Blink].



  • Spell holy powerwordbarrier [Divine Sacrifice]: Damage done to the Paladin while this is active will no longer cause the effect to break early, and if it is dispelled or canceled early, the damage counter will reset correctly the next time the spell is cast.


  • Ability rogue shadowdance [Shadow Dance]: Issues with action bars and ability use arising from using Stealth while Shadow Dance is active have been fixed.
  • Ability rogue tricksofthetrade [Tricks of the Trade]: To prevent exploits, this ability can no longer be cast on non-player targets.




Dungeons and raids[]

  • Players can no longer become saved to an instance when they aren't in the instance during a boss kill.
