Patch 4.2 hotfixes for July 6

Blizzard's at it again -- or rather, Zarhym is, as another round of patch 4.2 hotfixes goes up this evening over at the official blog. Included with the list are a host of fixes and tweaks to the Firelands raid as well as the dailies surrounding it. For those looking to begin heroic modes, start your engines! For those simply wanting to complete that blasted daily with the Wounded Hyjal Defenders, you may now breathe a sigh of relief.
  • In the Firelands, heroic difficulty has been activated and is accessible in all regions. Let the world firsts begin!
  • Eternal Embers are now epic quality.
  • There are now many more Wounded Hyjal Defenders in the Molten Front. While I'm sure they are flattered by all the attention, you guys can stop fighting over them now.
  • Characters should no longer disconnect or receive movement enforcement errors when certain spells, abilities, or item effects are used while on moving transports. I'm not sure what this means, but if it stops people from disconnecting on Beth'tilac, I'm all for it.
Follow after the break for the full list of hotfixes.


Zarhym

July 6

  • General
    • An issue has been corrected that would cause players to lose their progress towards Veteran of the Horde II, Veteran of the Alliance II, Warbringer of the Horde, or Warbound Veteran of the Alliance if Veteran of the Horde or Veteran of the Alliance were complete.
  • Classes
    • Characters should no longer disconnect or receive movement enforcement errors when certain spells, abilities, or item effects are used while on moving transports.

    • Shaman
      • A Fulmination critical strike for more than 30,000 damage (10-player) or 45,000 damage (25-player) should now properly interrupt Rageface's Face Rage in the Firelands.

  • Dungeons & Raids
    • Firelands
      • Heroic difficulty has been activated and is accessible in all regions.
      • Pet corpses, guardians, and placed items should no longer provoke Engorged Broodlings to a premature detonation.
      • The pack of creatures fighting each other around Flamewaker Beast Handlers will stop fighting each other and attack the raid once provoked.

      • The aggro radius on the third pack of Hells Hounds on the way to Beth'tilac has been reduced.
      • Unstable Pyrelords now have an active stealth detection aura present when the gauntlet is triggered which prevents stealth classes from traversing up the hill undetected.
      • Baleroc
        • Baleroc's health has been increased on 10-player Heroic difficulty.
        • Baleroc's gate now despawns properly when he resets.
        • Shards of Torment despawn when Baleroc resets even if they are spawned after Baleroc has despawned.
      • Lord Rhyolith
        • Lord Rhyolith can now be quickly snapped from left to right, or right to left, if the appropriate amount of damage is dealt to the opposite foot.
        • Lord Rhyolith now prefers to activate volcanoes that are in front of him over volcanoes that are behind him.
        • Lord Rhyolith now spawns slightly further back on his platform, allowing players to stand on the edge of the terrain and not aggro him.
        • Lord Rhyolith no longer despawns when reaching the end of the encounter area, and does not despawn when casting Drink Magma from any of the possible locations.
        • Lord Rhyolith now summons in volcanoes when intended, and it is no longer possible for the first set of volcanoes to be ignored.

        • Majordomo Staghelm has had his health increased by 10% on Heroic difficulty.
      • Ragnaros
        • Living Meteors no longer evade and return to their spawn point when their original target dies or uses a threat drop. They will instead choose a new target.
        • The Sons of Flame can no longer be missed by melee attacks and abilities.
      • Shannox
        • Shannox will now rotate when appropriate instead of moving to get in range of his target while being tanked.
        • Shannox will always use Hurl Spear after a raid wipes, even if Riplimb collapsed just prior to the group wiping.
  • Items
    • Jamus'Vaz and Faldren Tillsdale are once again offering players Conquest Points in exchange for Valor Points.
    • Normal and Heroic versions of Deflecting Star now correctly bind when picked up.
    • Eternal Embers are now epic quality.
    • Normal and Heroic versions of Pauldrons of Roaring Flame now have mastery rating instead of hit rating.
    • Ruthless, Vicious, and Bloodthirsty Gladiator's Clasps of Cruelty have had their Stamina values increased to remain consistent with equivalent belts. Note that the tooltip will require a patch to update.
  • Quests & Creatures
    • Hyjal Regrowth & Molten Front
      • Players are now receiving 6 Marks of the World Tree from Caught Unawares and 10 marks from The Sanctuary Must Not Fall, which now allows players to obtain 20 marks as soon as they finish their first days' worth of daily quests and unlock the Molten Front. The amount of marks offered is properly updated in player Quest Logs as well.
