World of Warcraft patch 2.4.2 notes released

Michael Zenke

WoW Insider is reporting on the notes for the next patch to World of Warcraft. Even with the recent release of the much-awaited Patch 2.4, there are still numerous tweaks that have to be made. It's expected that there will be a number of these smaller patches between now and when the Wrath of the Lich King expansion releases, but no further 'major' patches ala the Sunwell.

Patch 2.4.2 offers up several different changes to the game, including:
  • A major revamp of the way players are rewarded Arena points.
  • Being polymorphed by an NPC no longer causes player characters to heal, a potentially major change.
  • A new tameable pet for Hunters.
  • Tweaks to the Jewelcrafting, Enchanting, Engineering, and Leatherworking professions.
  • The bosses Vexallus and Kael'thas are no longer immune to taunt on Normal difficulty in the Magisters' terrace encounter.
  • A series of minor tweaks to the abilities of almost every class.
The full patch notes are available at WoW Insider.
