World of Warcraft Client Patch 1.8.4 (2005-11-29)


Battles must now last at least ten minutes after the start of the battle in order for the losing team to receive a Mark of Honor.


New quests for the Feast of Winter Veil have been added! See your Smokywood Pastures customer service representative in Ironforge and Orgrimmar for more details!
The level of many of last year's Feast of Winter Veil quests have been adjusted so that reputation rewards are available in their full amount for players of all levels able to do them.
Fixed a bug with both versions of the quest "A Smokywood Pastures' Thank You!" that was sending mail out immediately rather than on the intended delay.
In a startling discovery, Mistletoe sold on last year's vendors is now named "Fake Mistletoe". A Smokywood Pastures spokesman was quoted as saying, "Sorry, no refunds."
Some of the Southsea Dock Workers that were working under the boat should now be much more accessible to players.
Andre Firebeard no longer has a chance of dropping a Wastewander Water Pouch.
All OOX Distress Beacons are now multi-drop; everyone in a group should be able to receive one if it drops.
Fixed a bug with Oglethorpe Obnoticus' gossip where he was being much more familiar with strangers than he should have been.


Various preparations added to the client for Patch 1.9.

That sucks... WSG for 20-29 hardly ever lasts longer than 10-15 minutes. :(

They made that change to battlegrounds because people were going in and not doing anything, just losing on purpose. It's faster to lose a game every 5 minutes then to win every 20-30 minutes.

Is it just me, or did they reduce how far you can zoom out on your character?

Looked the same to me when I checked earlier.

On a side note, alcohol should come with a new warning on the label.

"May make you spend dkp on items you don't need" :(

For the zoom thing, there's a slider on one of the option pages (probably Video or Interface) that lets you set how far you want your camera to be able to zoom back. Check to make sure it wasn't reset.

Good call, I'll check when i get home.

I like to zoom out as far as I can.
