Patch 5.0.5 Hotfixes for October 19

Patch 505 Hotfixes for October 19
Everyone loves the hotfix gnome. He signals the arrival of more of the hottest of fixes, and has a fabulously pink beard. He's heated up yet another bunch of hotfixes for us all, and if you missed the last batch, check them out.

Today's hotfixes (that we believe have been active since the 19th, but have just been announce today) include:
  • Hunters can no longer carry battleground flags while stealthed with Camouflage
  • Players that have been defeated by the Headless Horseman can now use the Looking For Dungeon interface to return for another attempt.
  • Digging up a find while practicing Archaeology will now continue to grant skill points past 50.
  • Wyrmhorn Turtles are no longer quite so prolific. Poor things.
Hit the break for all the hotfixes! Wyrmhorn Turtles aren't quite so prolific there either.
