Patch 505 hotfixes for October 4
Another round of hotfixes descended this evening, posted by Daxxarri on the official website. This time we've got another round of class tweaks, some adjustments to the two world bosses, a few battlegrounds changes, and a smattering of bug fixes as well.
  • The Sha of Anger is now going to be making appearances more frequently, but far less predictably.
  • Low level players rejoice! The cost of battle pet training has been reduced to 10 gold. Now go catch them all.
  • The yak wash will now make all but the filthiest of yaks sparkle and shine.
  • The time limit for Warsong Gulch has been reduced -- it's now 20 minutes, instead of 25.
Read on for the full and fairly lengthy list of hotfixes.
