Patch 5.3 is officially live on servers -- and of course, with a new patch, we've got a new round of hotfixes. While there are some class tweaks for druids, monks, paladins and shaman, most of the changes involve new content. Or in the case of one change, an adjustment to older content that ought to make pet collectors and Karazhan farmers very happy.
- In the Chess Event over in Karazhan, the delay between moves for enemy chess pieces has been increased.
- Out in the Battlefield: Barrens, map markers for caravans that have been destroyed ought to be properly removed from the world map. In addition, overturned caravans should now despawn properly.
- In scenarios, the issue causing shape-shifted players to not shape-shift back into the correct race has been fixed.
