Patch 5.1 hotfixes for December 3, Valor drop amount increased

Another round of patch 5.1 hotfixes hit the ... Streets ... tonight. The amount of valor points dropped from raid bosses will increase from the current 25 points to 40 points. Noteworthy in this increase is a specific tweet from Ghostcrawler, clarifying earlier remarks:


This means that when the raids reset tomorrow (Tuesday), everyone will get the enjoy the higher valor drop rate. The changes are not taking place today, because as Ghostcrawler puts it: "There was some concern of causing ill will among people who had already finished raiding for the week."

As far as why the change happened, Ghostcrawler says:


Warlocks, paladins, and monks also received minor changes. The full notes after the break.
