A new week has begun, and with it, Blizzard has released another round of hotfixes for Cataclysm Classic. This set includes an adjustment to the honor that is rewarded from random and holiday battlegrounds, increasing both by 100%. So if you’re looking specifically for Honor, the best way to get it will be to queue for random battlegrounds or to focus on the current Call to Arms battleground. (Though strangely, there is currently no Call to Arms on the calendar for the coming weekend.)

Also included in this set of hotfixes is a change to the way that Discipline Priest Atonement healing works. Player pets will now be treated as if their health is 50% higher than it is, which will de-prioritize them for Atonement’s healing effect. So you won’t be wasting your limited healing from Atonement healing pets anymore – unless they happen to be the only members of your group who are seriously injured.

You can read the rest of the patch notes in the original post below.
