Bolded what I think are the important PvP changes. Lots of mana efficiency changes and some good mage loving :)

Source: http://www.worldofwa...patchnotes.html

    General

  • /timetest is a command that can be run to provide information on game performance. /timetest 0 turns the command off. When the command is issued, the next time a player uses a flight master to travel, certain statistics will be measured and displayed at the end of that flight. All weather effects and spawns are shutdown during the test.
  • Quest givers with blue question marks no longer show up on the minimap.
  • NPC's who you have completed a quest for will display a question mark on mouseover rather than an exclamation point.
  • The bank controls for the guildmaster level of a guild is now grayed out. A guildmaster always has full access to a guild bank and this cannot be changed.
  • A "Withdraw-Repair Only" button has been added to the guild bank controls. If this is set for a guild rank, then that rank cannot actually withdraw funds from the guild bank, but they can still use that daily amount of money for repairs.
  • You will now automatically stand up when attacked, even if the attack doesn’t land.
   Hunters

  • Arcane Shot: Ranks 1-5 will once again deal bonus damage based on attack power.
  • Aspect of the Viper effect increased.
  • Freezing Trap is no longer limited to one target at a time. Will this actually change anything? I assume this is just reverting it to the way it was one patch ago.
  • Pet leveling speed has been increased.
  Mages

  • Cold Snap (Frost) cooldown reduced. It is now in the Ice Block position in the talent tree. This ability will no longer reset the cooldown on Fire Ward.
  • Conjure Mana Gem (Rank 6 - Emerald) now restores 1800 to 3000 mana and has three charges.
  • Ice Block (Frost) is now available on the trainer to all mages at level 30.
  • Icy Veins (NEW Frost Talent) decreases casting time of all spells by 20% and increases the chance your chilling effects will freeze the target by 25%. Lasts 20 sec. 3 min cooldown. It is now in the Cold Snap position in the talent tree.
  Paladins

  • Crusader Strike (Retribution) now causes 110% of weapon damage and no longer gains any bonus from spell damage.
  • Righteous Fury: This spell will no longer cost twice the listed mana to cast.
  • Sanctified Judgements (Retribution) now returns 80% of the Seal's mana cost, increased from 50%.
  Rogues

  • Cheat Death: When multiple attacks land simultaenously, all those resolved after the attack which triggered Cheat Death will now have their damage reduced by 90% as intended. However, the combat log will still report them doing full damage.
  • Hemorrhage: Rank 4 of this ability no longer has its charges consumed by non-physical attacks and spells.
  Shaman

  • Earth Shield (Restoration) mana cost reduced.
  • Lightning Shield mana cost reduced.
  • Water Shield now restores mana periodically regardless of how many charges remain. Duration increased to 10 minutes.
  Warlock

  • The health cost taken from the Warlock after using Health Funnel will now remain consistent between uses.
  Warrior

  • Defiance (Protection) weapon expertise will now work in all stances. This was a bug that has been fixed.
  • Warriors no longer lose rage when using a macro to enter a stance they’re already in.
  Professions

  • Cooking
    • Goldthorn Tea was erroneously unlearned by most players who had learned the recipe. The recipe has been re-enabled and can be learned again from Henry Stern in Razorfen Downs at no cost.
  • Enchanting:
    • Enchant Shield - Resilience now requires a Runed Fel Iron Rod instead of a Runed Adamantite Rod.
  • Leatherworking:
    • Increased the range of leatherworking drums to 40 yards.  Drums of Panic remains unchanged at 8 yards.
  Items

  • Amani Charm of the Witch Doctor: Tooltip typo corrected.
  • Hearthstone: The cast time on this item is no longer affected by spell haste.
  • Icy Chill Enchant: The triggered effect from this enchantment will now cause a melee slow and movement snare as intended.
  • Idol of the Unseen Moon: This item now has a 30 second cooldown on being triggered.
  • Idol of Terror: The triggered agility buff from this item no longer overwrites other agility buffs.
  • The Netherscale Ammo Pouch is no longer a Unique item.
  • The Knothide Quiver is no longer unique.
  Dungeons and Raids
Heroic Coilfang Resevoir- Steamvaults    
    Mekgineer Steamrigger's Main Chambers Access Panel is no longer interactable until Mekgineer Steamrigger has been killed.
  • Tempest Keep- The Eye
    • The number of Blood Elves guarding Prince Kael'Thas' room has been reduced.
  • Zul'Aman
    • The Amani'shi Warrior's Charge ability now has a minimum range.
    • The melee haste provided by Halazzi's Frenzy has been reduced to 100%.
    • Dragonhawks in Zul'Aman can now be skinned.  This doesn't include dragonhawks that do not have loot.
  Quests
  • Blade's Edge Mountains: Players accepting the bombing run quests in Blade's Edge Plateaus will no longer cause other players in the region to stand up.
  User Interface
  • There is now an option to turn off the screen edge damage flash when you have a fullscreen UI up.
  • You can sell stacks by dropping them on the merchant window again.
  • Ready check (/readycheck) will now display a visual display of each party/raid member's status next to their name. This will display in the Party UI, the Raid UI and the Raid pullout UI. A player will get a check mark if they are ready, a question mark if they have not replied and a red X if they are not ready or are afk.
  • You can now see raid members on the minimap as dark blue dots in addition to party members which still display as light blue dots.
  • You can now shift click names while the petition window is open to paste them into the petition.
  • Fixed various problems with /castsequence getting stuck.
  • /cast will toggle spells again unless the name is prefixed with an exclamation mark, e.g. /castsequence Steady Shot, !Auto Shot
  Bug Fixes
  • Fixed “Spell/Ability is not ready yet” message when clicking quickly at the beginning of a cast. Perhaps the fix for the GCD issues people have been having?
  • Fixed a server disconnect when moving the mouse over recipes in the guild bank.
  • Gnomish Universal Remote will now work properly with the Fel Cannon.
  • Disconnecting a USB HeadSet will no longer cause problems with the Voice Chat dropdown menus.
  • Clockwork Rocket Bots will no longer attack each other in Shattrath City.
  • Channel changes will now appear properly in the chat log after zoning in or out of instances.
  • Unplugging headphones/speakers then plugging them back in while in WoW no longer disables all sound in WoW
  • If the original owner of a custom channel gives leadership away their options menu will no longer show that they have moderation privileges.
  • The first custom created guild ranking will now properly show up in the Guild Control pane drop down menu.
  • Control-clicking on inventory items that teach recipes will now properly display you wearing the item made by the recipe in the dressing room UI.

We have given the site a face lift which we feel is a vast improvement over the look and feel of the old site.

We have added a new content section: Macros. As with everything here on Arena Junkies we need your feedback and suggestions to make the best that it can be so if you have macros or feedback on the macros please post them in the new forum Macros. We have more content sections on the way but wanted to start letting everyone use the new site. If you have any suggestions for content you would like to see please post in Site Feedback.

You have also probably noticed a couple more ads.  It is terrific seeing Arena Junkies becoming more and more popular, but unfortunately it comes at the cost of bandwidth and server space, so we have added a few more ads to help cover costs and keep the site up and running smoothly. If you would would like to disable the ads you can now sign up for the new Premium Membership. Along with disabling the ads you will get to preview and discuss features before the general public, access to the premium members forum, and 500 private messages. Premium membership is a way to help us keep the site up and running as well as allow us to spend more time developing new features. In addition, it will allow us to upgrade our servers, do more armory crawling, and hopefully start arena contests for season three. We want to spice up this next season a bit so that there is a reason to play in case Blizzard drops the ball again.

Let us know what you think of the new changes in the Site Feedback forum. Back to Top

Because the season is now coming to a close, we are under the assumption that everyone is on at least one of their regular teams. We believe that now seems like a reasonable time to reevaluate current access as players with access at the end of the season will maintain it for approximately the first three weeks after the season starts.

In the interest of keeping the content in the forums as excellent as possible, we ran our armory update scripts removing access from those who no longer meet requirements. If you believe this to be an error, please PM with any details on why you should not have lost access.

Please do not take this personally as it is just an attempt to help keep the forums functioning in the way they were originally intended. This will be a semi-regular thing until the end of the season, after which we will be testing a new heuristic to help determine forum access.
