Patch 7.1: Easily Missed Notes
In the Dev Chat before the last one, Watcher admitted that the Auction House sucked and he even suggested that you should get an addon (that had to hurt). What is being fixed is how the AH decides what to show first.
Currently if one item is up for 15g and three items are up for a total of 20g, the AH sees that single unit as cheaper. This is why we see rows and rows of singles even if it is a better deal (so to speak) to buy three in a bundle.
I’m looking forward to this one: pay attention!
Posted back in mid-September, from Wowhead.
We can now transmog our belts to not display.
An Up Arrow will show on a piece of gear in your bag if it is an upgrade! Players can now argue how wrong the choice is due to secondary stats. hehe.
You DO know that you can click on the Flight Path map and zoom in? Good, that is already in place. In 7.1, when you mouse over a FP; if a quest is close it will light up. Meaning it will help you choose the right FP to get to the quest you are hunting down. This might be the best improvement in the patch!
There is a very technical article here in the forums.
What will be happening is that we are losing things like arrows in dungeons and raids. Addons that give us /range 8 should not be working anymore. Watcher has stressed that addons like Tom Tom out in the world should still work fine.
No, DBM is not going away.
This will impact healers. My addon has an arrow to point me to players out of range. Finding that dead guy to battle rez in a raid is going to … be much harder now.
