Tuesday's edition of "I hate Tuesday"

Just occasionally Blizzard surprises us with simple rolling restarts, but most Tuesdays drag on forever as they conduct "regular maintenance". On special Tuesdays--like today for instance--they roll out a new patch that most likely means extended down times that they spring on us when the servers don't come up on time, and laggy in game performance for the following few days.

Oh and this patch holds YET ANOTHER DK NERF!

  • Frost Presence: Armor bonus is now 60% down from 80%.
  • Death Knight PvP Gauntlets: The chance to refresh a Frost Rune when casting Chains of Ice has been removed. When equipped, these gloves now generate 5 additional runic power whenever Chains of Ice is used.

[Update] What a frelling surprise!!!

We have encountered some issues and the maintenance on all realms will be extended by 2 hours. All realms not listed below are expected to be playable by approximately 1:00pm PDT.

The realms listed below that are undergoing extended maintenance are expected to be playable by approximately 2:00pm PDT. Thank you for your patience.
