Heading up today’s hotfixes for Cataclysm Classic is a significant reduction to the cooldown on character services, including race changes, faction changes, and server transfers. Previously you could only use these services once ever 30 days, but this has now been reduced to a mere three days.

Also among the fixes is an adjustment to Magmaw, the first boss in the Blackwing Descent raid. This boss will no longer be out of reach during Impale, ensuring that players will be able to continue dealing damage to him.

It seems there was also an issue with the Eye of the Storm battleground that caused the Horde team to get less resource points per tick while they held three control points, compared to an Alliance team in the same situation. This has now been fixed.

The list also includes improved combat logging and adjustments to two class abilities: Death Coil for Death Knights, which was healing more than intended, and Vendetta for Rogues, which was persisting even when the talent had been dropped.
