- Players fighting Hexos in the Brawler's Guild should no longer be killed by the maze after successfully defeating Hexos.
- Guards at both Huojin and Tushui Landing on the Timeless Isle are now significantly more deadly.
- Worgen players, Darkflight's speed increase no longer stacks with Burning Rush or Burst of Speed.
I think it was well and proper that raid attunements were immediately mocked, though I was gratified to see the Fel Reaver laid low. Even though it doesn't quite feel right. I mean. The Fel Reaver should always be terrifying, even when we're level 200. Right? Okay, so it was still funny.

The boosting process - potential profession pitfalls
This is relatively straightforward, and as described in the video above. However, there are some notable omissions if you have a level 60 character that you want to boost to gain the professions. We all know about the veteran bonus, that allows you to get maxed out, level 600 professions if you boost a level 60+ character.
But if you have a level 60+ character you're planning to use that hasn't yet learned any professions, you'll need to ensure that you have the professions you want learned before you go through the boost process. Otherwise the system will pick your professions based on the type of armor you wear. Once the boost is complete, if you have the wrong professions you'll have to submit a ticket to get them changed. We're not sure whether GMs are able to do that or not.

Yesterday, Hearthstone community manager Aratil revealed a few changes to the game in advance of its official launch. To start, Tinkmaster Overspark and Nat Pagle are being rebalanced. That's one small part of today's Hearthstone patch, which includes the Hearthsteed mount for Hearthstone-playing World of Warcraft players.
- Tinkmaster Overspark is now a 3/3 (up from 2/2) and now reads: Battlecry: Transform another random minion into a 5/5 Devilsaur or a 1/1 Squirrel. (Old Effect: Battlecry: Transform a minion into a 5/5 Devilsaur or a 1/1 Squirrel at random.)
- Nat Pagle now reads: At the start of your turn, you have a 50% chance to draw an extra card. (Old Effect: At the end of your turn, you have a 50% chance to draw an extra card.)
This is all part of the latest patch to Hearthstone, which also includes matchmaking changes, golden heroes, alternate card backs, and more. You can find the patch notes on the Hearthstone blog and the official explanation for some of these changes below.

He also talks about his gaming history, referring to both WoW and Need for Speed, and tells the interviewer how he's played both games and loved them. He goes on to talk about how he couldn't find the time to be sufficiently reliable to commit time to raiding in WoW, and how he unfortunately no longer plays either. Nonetheless, it's an interesting interview, and perhaps a glimpse into the Warcraft Movie world.

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky (@adamholisky) will be your host today.
Someone in the comments yesterday suggested that I make a headline about Bacon, and here I am! We now have a bacon Queue.
Do you think we'll ever be able to change factions in WoW (without changing race)? Or atleast that some of the old races will become neutral/choose-your-faction like pandas are?
