WoW Patch 3.3.3 Release Patch Notes


  • Dungeons & Raids

    • Caverns of Time: Players in Old Hillsbrad Foothills, The Black Morass, and The Culling of Stratholme can no longer use some costumes and disguises. You're supposed to be blending in here, not calling attention to yourselves! (This prevents some instances where such costumes permanently removed the Human Illusion or caused it to go haywire).
    • Halls of Stone: Fixed a bug that caused Brann Bronzebeard to not properly initiate the Tribunal event after he has died and respawned.
    • Icecrown Citadel

      • Precious and Stinky will now summon players who attempt to cause them to evade.
      • Fixed a bug that caused The Lich King encounter to sometimes not reset when the raid party wiped.
      • Goblin Rocket Pack: Using this item will now remove all the shapeshift forms triggered by Deathbringer's Will and allow use of the item (previously players would have to click off the shapeshift in order to be allowed to use this item).
  • Items

    • Black Bruise: Tooltip clarified to indicate this item triggers only from melee weapon attacks.
    • Darkmoon Card: Berserker!: This trinket is now triggered properly by ranged white attacks.
    • Deathbringer's Will: Players can no longer mount with any of the shapeshifts from this item active.
    • Dislodged Foreign Object: This trinket can no longer be triggered by Power Word: Shield.
    • Eye of the Broodmother: This trinket can now only be triggered by damage and healing spells.
    • Glyphs

      • Death Knights

        • Glyph of Dark Death: The tooltip on this glyph now also mentions it increases the healing effect from Death Coil as well. Functionality was unchanged.
        • Glyph of Disease: When this glyph causes Frost Fever's duration to be refreshed, it now also causes the benefit of Icy Talons to be refreshed.
        • Glyph of Icebound Fortitude: Tooltip corrected to indicate it increases damage reduction to a minimum of 40%.
        • Glyph of Obliterate: Equipping this glyph will no longer cause its own tooltip to show a spuriously increased number.
        • Glyph of Unbreakable Armor: Equipping this glyph will no longer cause its own tooltip to show a spuriously increased number.
      • Priests

        • Glyph of Power Word: Shield: The heal produced from this glyph is now more correctly treated as a heal for purposes of procing effects that are caused by heals, such as Divine Aegis and the weapon Trauma.
        • Glyph of Prayer of Healing: This glyph will now always heal all affected targets by the correct amount.
      • Shamans

        • Glyph of Flametongue Weapon: Now updates the tooltip of Flametongue Weapon when equipped.
      • Warlocks

        • Glyph of Siphon Life: This glyph will now correctly update the combat log and talent tooltips for Siphon Life. Functionality has not changed.
    • Heartpierce: Tooltip clarified to indicate this item triggers only from melee weapon attacks.
    • Last Word: Tooltip clarified to indicate this item triggers only from melee weapon attacks.
    • Mounts: If a player attempts to get on a mount while affected by a shapeshift that cannot mount, they will now get the error message: "You can't mount while affected by that shapeshift," instead of "You can't do that right now."
    • Multi-Passenger Mounts: Players can no longer get on these mounts as a second or third passenger while those players are in combat.
    • Needle-Encrusted Scorpion: Volley and Explosive Shot can now properly trigger this trinket.
    • Nibelung: The tooltip for the Smite spell cast by the Val'kyr Protectors summoned from this item now indicates that the Smite spell also heals the Val'kyr Protectors.
    • Potions: All the buffs from potions that were incorrectly considered magic effects and thus dispellable by Dispel Magic are no longer considered magic.
    • Shadowmourne: Tooltip clarified to indicate this item triggers only from melee weapon attacks.
    • Talisman of Volatile Power: Now triggered correctly by Penance when Penance is used offensively.
    • Totem of Quaking Earth: The Volcanic Fury buff triggered by this item now has a detailed combat log tooltip.
  • PvP

    • Battlegrounds

      • End of Match: Various effects that impaired movement, caused loss of control, rooted, or stunned a player were persisting past the end of the Battleground. They are all now removed on exiting the Battleground.
  • User Interface

    • Combat Log: Activated abilities that appeared in Floating Combat Text (such as Slam!, Art of War, Eclipse, etc.) will now appear properly in the Combat Log, and only appear once in the Floating Combat Text.
    • Players can now roll Disenchant on Unique items they already have in their inventory.
    • When speaking to an NPC for which a player has 2 or more quests and not all of them are complete, the incomplete quests will now correctly show as a gray question marks in the dialog box. In addition, repeatable quests will be properly colored as blue exclamation points or question marks in the dialog box for NPCs with multiple quests available, or for which the player has multiple quests in progress or completed.
    • Minimizing the game client while auto-following another player character will no longer cancel the follow command.
