Bug Fixes

  • Unlocked  [Master Plow] at Sunsong Ranch works properly again.
  • The camera no longer becomes desynced after completing the Icecrown Gunship Battle in Icecrown Citadel.
  • The PlayMusic() API function now works again. (Patch 7.0.3 broke its functionality.[6])
  • All items that are added to the player's Appearances collection, regardless of item quality, are now announced in the player's chat window. (Previously, only items of epic quality were announced.)
  • Blood elf characters now grip fist weapons correctly.
  • The search field in the Profession UI now correctly returns results when using capital letters. (This was broken in Patch 7.0.3.)

  • The icon list window for the Macro and Equipment Manager frames has been expanded.
  • A new option to hide the waist, shirt, and tabard slots have been added via Transmogrification.
  • The loading screen used for the Broken Isles has been changed slightly. The sword in Varian Wrynn's right hand is now orange instead of blue, matching the other sword.[8] This was done to correspond with what is shown in the in-game cinematic.[9]
  • Mythic and Mythic+ dungeon groups are now listed separately in the Group Finder
  • The map for flight paths in the Broken Isles now shows only the path to your destination, how many world quests are up in a zone, as well as showing non-world quests on the map.[10]

  • [Ancient Mana] nodes now appear as blue on the Minimap instead of yellow.
  • The chat window now uses smooth scrolling.

  • Maps:
    • Player icons are now larger.
    • Player icons have a more noticeable black outline.
    • Player positions on the map update more frequently.
