Blizzard Releases Patch 3.0.8 For World of Warcraft
Here comes another update round from the makers of World of Warcraft: the latest patch will take the game forward to version 3.0.8, with lost of goodies packed neatly.
January 21, 2009
Also, Blizzard decided to lift the racial restrictions on mounts, leaving the Tauren to joyfully ride their new raptors, while Night Elves are still busy getting used to the mechanostriders.
The patch changes the mechanics for items with bonus armor (any cloth, leather, mail, or plate items with extra armor, or any other items with any armor). Bonus armor beyond the base armor of an item will no longer be multiplied by any talents or by the bonuses of Bear Form, Dire Bear Form, or Frost Presence.
All Silence spells now have diminishing returns, including: Arcane Torrent, Garrote silence effect, Improved Counterspell effect, Improved Kick effect, Silence, Gag Order, Silencing Shot, Spell Lock, and Strangulate. Dispel Resist talents have changed to protect only beneficial spells and damage over time effects.
The run speed in spirit form has been increased by 50%. Night Elves in Wisp form will now move at 75% speed.
For any complaints and additional uses, a new mailbox is now available at the Crows Tavern in the Dalaran Sewers
