Few big changes in there.
I really like the player skeleton idea. No shields at all for rogues though? Nice to see the pvp tweaks.
Holy Crap, this aint right. Me drooling over the patch notes of a beta I am not even in.
Hehehehe...that's ok Wix, I keep playing the Dwarves Can't Dance video to anyone who walks by my desk, just dreaming about playing :)
The no more shield thing really blows bubble gum. Shield/dagger was far superior to dual wield IMO. :angry
Bah. Guess I should try it out before I bitch too much though. I just know I died a lot more using dual wield. Marathon patch when I get home. :p
New quests added in The Barrens.
More quests in The Barrens? Jeez, I'm gonna be there forever.

talents are **awesome**.
Okay, they made dual weild a bit more lucrative as it hits a bit harder and more often. The shield loss wasn't as bad as I had assumed.
However, ability misfires are insane. This was probably as they originally intended, but damn I got used to a certain combat style. Now I have to rethink my tactics. :p
I hear the talents are pretty sweet, hope they do the rogues right. I'm still discovering the usefulness of half of my abilities. New talents are going to overload my feeble brain.

This last patch really seemed to change the rogue class in a negative fashion - some on purpose, some by accident. It seems like Blizzard has taken rogues for quite a ride through the Beta.
They changed up how death looks. When you die, the world goes greyscale or black and white. It really looks amazing all washed out like that. When you resurrect, the color sweeps across the terrain, it's very well done.

I'd just like to add that the cool death stuff doesn't happen if you use an older video card. Instead, things just look more.... foggish. I've seen it on my brother's PC (who runs a Radeon 9600 pro while I run a radeon 7500) and it looks very cool.
I wish they would incorporate off-hand damage into the DPS shown on the charecter sheet, though.
Here's two shots of the Ruins of Lordaeron to showcase the new death.

All it needs now is 'OooOOOoOoooOOoooOOoo' as speech for dead players. :D
Don't forget it also needs a human warlock standing about 30 feet from the living Tauren saying "Cor por" and then again standing next to the dead Tauren with a little speech bubble, saying "u sux looser". But somehow I think except for the cor por part we'll get that extra detail future screenshots once the game is released. ;)
