Content and Environment
Caverns of Karrundax: Adjusted collision around the environment near the Hand of Magera.
Heroic Encounter Major and Epic scoring for has been updated:
The chance to get an epic item from a Heroic Success has been slightly lowered.
The participation requirement to get the Heroic Success participation level of rewards has been lowered.
Healing and damage taken participation scoring values has been greatly increased.
The overall effect should be that it is easier to qualify and receive the best rewards for all classes, but especially for tanking and healing roles.
Heroic Encounter: Black Ice Domination: Resolved an issue that would cause the golem activation statues to not be usable.
Heroic Encounter: Black Ice Domination: This Heroic Encounter should now always be in sync with the domination portion of this event and not get stuck.

Plague Tower: Fixed statues that rotated around the wrong axis.
Sleeping Dragon Bridge Tutorial: This quest is now completed upon entering Protectors Enclave to prevent rare instances where this quest could previously become impossible to complete.
Sleeping Dragon Bridge: Fixed the siege tower door rotating around the wrong axis.
Kessell's Retreat: Players should no longer be removed from the Kessell's Retreat queue when they die.
Kessell's Retreat: Resolved a floating point accuracy issue with not being able to have exactly 20% Black Ice Resistance to be able to queue for this instance.
Kessell's Retreat: Slightly lowered the drop rate of the Black Ice Beholder Artifact from Kessell.
Classes and Balance
Black Ice Resistance should immediately recalulate without the need to change maps first when gear is changed.
In Level Adjusting Events, such as Call to Arms Events, players level 35 and below have had their damage increased. This increase is very small at level 35, but much larger at lower levels.
Great Weapon Fighter
Destroyer Class Feature: This class feature no long incorrectly applies each stack of its damage bonus multiplicatively. It now correctly adds its damage bonus per stack. This class feature still applies its total damage bonus multiplicatively.

The Fey Blessing enchantment has been updated so that it will generate enchantments from monsters whose level is greater than 60.
Auction House: There is now a spending cap on how much can be spent in the Auction Hall per day on accounts with no level 60 characters. Normative play and purchasing activities should not experience any issues.
Scoreboards: Resolved an issue that could list more participants than have actually participated in the currently displayed instance of that event.
Performance and Stability
Reduced the network load for client and server relating to extraneous loot drop information being sent around. This will also help with loot, enemies and players dropping out as well.
