Undocumented 2.2 patch notes
It's a familiar cycle with every patch -- some changes get properly documented in the official patch notes while other changes are sadly forgotten. However, industrious inividuals on the forums always band together to collect even the tiniest of changes into a community collection of undocumented patch notes. For 2.2, these are being compiled by Viral of Stormrage -- with the help of many an attentive player. The current list, for those of you who don't have access to the forums, is after the jump, but full details (complete with lots of rumor and debate) you have to go to the source.

  • New music added to Honor Hold as well as the inns of Ironforge and Stormwind
  • Cho Threadstrong has new sayings he shouts at the fruit vendor (poor fruit vendor)
  • Griftah unceremoniously ousted from Shattrath. Now sadly selling his fine wares (at unreasonably cheap prices!) in Terrokar Forest, just outside of the city's south-eastern tunnel at 36, 30 (Thanks, Meadows)
Character Models, Animation, & Spell Effects
  • Orc shoulders and off-hand weapons fixed (possible overcompensation for previous bug?)
  • Male night elf shoulders arc differently (possible bug?)
  • Cyclone graphic changed to, and I quote, "look more awesome." Awesomeness confirmed
  • Evocation's graphic effect updated, seems to be a blue version of the confirmed-awesome cyclone update
  • Windfury finishes the updated cyclone trilogy, now larger and darker; fans are divided!
  • Prayer of Mending received a new animation
  • Hurricane visually seems more selective, targeting victims with bolts of lightening bolts followed by loud booms
  • Nethermine Ravager's rock shell ability received a new spell effect
  • Druid Moonkin form has a new bandaging/crafting/using animation
  • Red Ogre Suit is now fixed; weapons scaled down and now seat properly when sheathed
  • Non-combat pets now have a 1-second cool-down between summoning and unsummoning
  • Aquadynamic Fish Attractors now officially say the duration is 10 minutes as opposed to 5
  • Crashn' Thrashn' Robot now will walk around a small area instead of standing in one spot
  • Merciless Gladiator's Satin Gloves graphic has been changed from slim and tight to look like the bulky Merciless Gladiator's Mooncloth Gloves
  • Fishing: Bobber splash at the end of the timer is adjusted so you don't have to instantly click for fear of missing
  • Fishing: The fishing line now instantly appears when you cast
  • Relic's Emanation daily quest money reward decreased while the Ogri'la faction reward was increased (documented somewhere but apparently not well known so here it is. Huzzah!)
  • Skettis escort quest reward reduced to 9 gold from 11 gold, 99 silver
UI & Game Mechanics
  • Disenchant received a new icon
  • Wide screen UI scales differently
  • UI Scaling in general appears to be a bit funky and requires some tweaking
  • New Auction house alert: "A buyer has been found for your auction of X"
  • Error speech re-enabled by default. You require more vespene gas
  • One hour delay on receiving currency from successful auctions (there seems to be confusion as to where this note was actually posted so for sanity's sake here it is, possibly again)
  • Windowed game begins in the center of the screen instead of the upper-left corner
  • New software reverb audio option
  • Ogri'la reputation now goes to 999/1000 exalted
  • Voidwalker's Suffering spell seems to work immediately when button is selected (what, no more "I can't do that yet?")
  • Blessing of Sacrifice is on a 30 second cooldown, not the 1 minute listed in the patch notes
