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.
  • Fixed an issue that was not allowing all charges of a Field Repair Bot to be used.
