6.1.4 PvP Patch Notes

Official Blizzard Quote:

Races
Draenei
Gift of the Naaru now actually gives other players a gift. However, as beings of pure light, they probably got you a rainbow, or something? You should make them a list.

Gnome
Gnomes can now equip and wear goggles regardless of class or profession requirements. However, the goggles do nothing.

Human
Every Man for Himself has been redesigned. It now grants Humans a third trinket slot.

Orc
Orcs now receive a state-funded rebate for being more "green."

Walker
Corrected an error where Walkers were able to gain benefits from eating and drinking.

Worgen
All Worgen characters must now wear a collar and carry around little blue baggies.

Classes
Death Knights
Mastery: Blood Shield has been renamed to Mastery: Health Shield, because ew.
Breath of Sindragosa is now minty-fresh.
Bone Shield: now with 50% more calcium!
The Death Knight unique skin colors have been made darker in response to player requests for darker Knights.
Dark Simulacrum is now 37% easier to pronounce.
Mind Freeze now renders the target unconscious and causes them to slowly turn to ice, unless you erase their memory of the incident and spend the rest of your life in seclusion.
Outbreak no longer applies Blood Plague and Frost Fever. Instead, it applies a new, airborne version of a virus first encountered 30 years ago. Enemy players will have to work together to develop a new serum to cure the virus before the military bombs the whole city.

Druids
Balance has been redesigned. The damage you deal is now variable, based on the current number of threads on the forums demanding nerfs or buffs.
Remove Corruption can no longer be cast on the members of your guild's loot council.
Cyclone is now dispellable, but only by other Druids.
Druids in Tree of Life form will now bear fruit.
The Moonkin model has been updated, but it's too adorable to kill, so we aren't going to implement it. It's pretty great, though.
Gift of the Wild has returned. It now causes the casting Druid to leave a freshly-killed bird or rodent on the doorstep of the target player's Town Hall.
New form: Meatsquatch. Transforms the caster into a creature that's half hamburger, half Yeti. Abilities include Devour Meat and Sabotage Cooking. MEATSQUATCH!

Hunters
Seem fine.

Mages
Alter Time will now automatically update for Daylight Savings.
Overpowered has been nerfed for obvious reasons.
Blink's tooltip has been updated to: "Teleports the caster directly into the nearest rock, shrub, or fence." Functionality unchanged.
Due to drought, Conjured Water is now being rationed.
Invisibility can now only be used when no one is looking, including the Mage.
Mage Armor has an even newer, more unique icon.
To better illustrate the difference in effectiveness, Fireball has been renamed "Ball of Fire" and Pyroblast has been renamed "Great Ball of Fire." Goodness gracious!
Despite their many heroic deeds over the years, player Mages are still nowhere near as cool as Jaina or Khadgar.
Seriously, did you see what Khadgar did with the dam in Tanaan Jungle?
All of the elements were like FWOOOM and then he threw them at it like KAPOW and all the water went WOOOOSH.
It was awesome.

Monks
Crackling Jade Lightning still exists.
Serenity now causes the caster to don a brown coat and get really sad about Wash.
Storm, Earth, and Fire has had its powers magnified, and can now be used on a total of 5 targets. Because of this change, it's been renamed to "Earth, Fire, Wind, Water, and Heart."
Monks can now activate a brief montage cutscene that shows their character farming materials for flasks and food, reading up on boss encounters, and practicing their rotations, instead of having to actually do any of those things.
Monks now automatically Roll everywhere instead of running while out of combat.
Energizing Brew has been renamed to Red Ox. The effects remain the same, but it gives the Monk wings when activated.
Abilities without the words "Chi" or "Zen" in their name have been fixed to correctly have one or both. Enjoy Spinning Zen Crane Chi Kick.

Paladins
Empowered Seals no longer causes the user to belt out "Kiss From a Rose" at the top of their lungs.
After several years of deliberations, the Templar has finally reached a Verdict.
Inquisition is back. Isn't that surprising? No one expects Inquisition!
Blinding Light now causes affected players to rev up like a deuce, whatever that means.
Execution Sentence has been commuted and replaced with Life Imprisonment.
In an effort to provide a friendlier image, the Order of the Silver Hand has designated several Raids, Dungeons, and Battlegrounds as "Judgment-Free Zones." While in one of these zones, all Paladins will have their Judgment spells disabled.

Priests
Leap of Faith can no longer be used on players channeling Hearthstone.
Leap of Faith can no longer be used when the Priest is standing next to a cliff.
Leap of Faith can no longer be used on players on or near elevators.
Priests are now 80% less annoying.
Spirit Shell now melts in your mouth, not in your hand.
Spectral Guise no longer summons a bunch of creepy ghost dudes to follow you around. We misread it, sorry.
Angelic Feathers can now be used to tickle sleeping party members.
Instead of granting vision of the surrounding area, Mind Vision now allows the Priest to look into their target's deepest thoughts. Not recommended for use on King Varian. Dude's got issues.

Rogues
After earning enough Combo Points, the Rogue's next finisher will include fries and a drink.
Distract can now be used on people who write patch no... ooh, shiny!
Due to Ravenholdt's increased need for secrecy, all further Rogue updates will be presented using invisible ink.

Shaman
Grounding Totem now causes party members to reflect on their life choices and consider that maybe quitting their job to write that novel wasn’t the best idea.
Capacitor Totem is what makes time travel possible.
Lightning Bolt can now only be cast while moving. Stopping or standing still will interrupt the cast.
Using the /kiss emote on Hexed targets will now cause the effect to end immediately, and you're just going to have to live with that.
New ability: Water Shock. Used by chefs to keep noodles from overcooking.
Ascendance will now properly make the Shaman gradually ascend in the air during its duration.
Tremor Totem now has a chance to summon a giant worm and/or Kevin Bacon.
Bloodlust has been renamed Heroism.
Heroism has been renamed Bloodlust.
Unleash Life, uh... finds a way.

Warlocks
Cataclysm has finally upgraded to Warlords of Draenor.
Due to the events in the Warlords of Draenor opening cinematic, Mannoroth's Fury is significantly less furious.
Warlocks can now find and complete an epic, 47-step quest to earn Chromatic Fire. Finally, you can experience the true essence of the Warlock class: rainbows!
Chaos Bolt can no longer be targeted. Chaos Bolt does what it wants. You're not Chaos Bolt's dad!
Dark Soul has been completely redesigned and made way more difficult to use, but we're not going to tell you how. You're going to have to figure out Dark Soul for yourself.
In addition to no longer generating Burning Embers, Rain of Fire no longer deals damage.
The Destruction passive Backdraft continues to remind you of that weird Kurt Russell movie about firefighters.

Warriors
Hamstring has been removed and replaced with a new ability called Ham Sandwich. Sorry about that, one of our designers got hungry.
Spell Reflection. R, E, F, L, E, C, T, I, O, N. Reflection.
Warriors who use Whirlwind immediately after Bladestorm will get really dizzy.
Gladiator Stance has been made 55% more entertaining.
Due to increased concerns from their coworkers, all Warriors are now required to take Anger Management.

Garrisons
Followers' Followers: Your Followers have gained so much stature that they've started to attract Followers of their own. Followers' Followers will now appear in your Garrison, and your Followers will be able to send their Followers on Missions.
The new Followers' Mission Table will appear behind your town hall. This object is not clickable by you, but your Followers will go to it when you send them on Missions, and soon thereafter, you'll see your Followers' Followers walking out of your Garrison.
Your Followers will receive rewards from the missions your Followers' Followers return from, but we have no idea what they are and they aren't telling us.
The S.E.L.F.I.E. camera mission "Field Photography" is not appearing for all players due to its random nature. We didn't change anything; we just wanted to point out what random means.
In order to comply with a new noise ordinance on Draenor, Garrison Jukeboxes will no longer play after 10 p.m.
Followers can borrow toys from your collection to play with while waiting for new missions. They won't put them back, though. Seriously, there's going to be toys everywhere.
After sending max-level epic Followers on XP missions, you can rush outside to see them leaving your Garrison, and questioning why they continue to put up with you.
New Follower Trait: Binge Watching. Causes the follower to completely disappear from your Garrison for the entire weekend whenever a new season of House of Cards releases, and then never shut up about it once they return.
Players may now freely travel from their Garrison.

Quests
New Quest Hub: Terminus
Sanctuary for all. Community for all. Those who arrive, survive.
To get to Terminus, pick up the quest "You're the Butcher or You're the Cattle" from Grick Rimes in Stormwind or Orgrimmar and follow the tracks. This quest is unavailable to Walkers.
Complete quests and earn reputation with the Terminants to gain access to the Walker’s "Cannibalize" racial ability.
To alleviate confusion between franchises, the quest "Trouble at the Overwatch" has been renamed. It is now called "Trouble at the Hearthstone." Wait, no. "Trouble at the Heroes of the Storm." Argh, this is hard.
The Legendary quest "Draenor’s Secret Power" was incorrectly requiring 4986 Apexis Crystals, and has been corrected down to the intended 4983 Apexis Crystals. We have no idea what Khadgar's been doing with the extra 3...
Senior Historian Evelyna on the Timeless Isle now only asks the Mur'ghoul question.
The quest item Fox Poop should no longer appear for players who don't have that quest. Players who do have that quest should just get it over with, it's not that bad.

PvP
Players now take 10% less damage in PvP.
A number of Crowd Control (CC) changes have been made. Consult your class trainers before using CC.
Only use CC when you need it.
If your CC lasts longer than four hours, seek immediate medical attention.
Killing the enemy faction's leader in Ashran now awards 16 Conquest Points.
All CC effects have had their durations reduced by 33%.
Killing the enemy faction's leader in Ashran no longer awards Conquest Points, and instead awards 150 Artifact Fragments.
Ashran events now begin when you least expect them to.
All CC effects have had their cooldowns reduced by 33%.
Players now deal 10% more damage in PvP.
Tanks no longer take extra damage in PvP, but instead have to play with their hands tied behind their back.
Killing the enemy faction's leader in Ashran no longer awards Artifact Fragments, and instead awards 219 Apexis Crystals.
The Battle for Gilneas has been renamed "The Battle for the Waterworks."
All CC effects have had their effects increased by 33%. For example, Fear is now 33% scarier, and Cyclone is now 33% windier.
Players now act like they take 10% less damage in PvP, but they really don't. They're just kidding around.
Fixed an issue causing some classes and specs to be completely broken in PvP.
A new 1v1 bracket has been added to the game: Rated Ashran.
Killing the enemy faction's leader in Ashran no longer awards anything, because the satisfaction of victory should be its own reward, damn it.
