Patch 4.0.6 hotfixes for Feb. 25

A new round of hotfixes to patch 4.0.6 were just released over at the official WoW blog. The changes are primarily fixes or nerfs to the heroic Valiona and Theralion encounter in the Bastion of Twilight. A few of the nerfs appear to balance the fight for the heroic 10-man version, while others are all-around nerfs to the damage in the fight.

Another change fixes the ressurrection of players in the Twin Peaks and Battle for Gilneas battlegrounds.
