Patch 3.0.2 Highlights

(new login screen)

Things that I noticed in the patch notes:

*The Barber Shop- Finally my druid gets some redemption.

*Spell casting and spell channeling pushback has been changed
When casting a spell: The first and second hit will add .5 secs each to the cast time. All hits after the second will have no effect.

When channeling a spell: The first and second hit reduces current duration by 25% of total duration each. All hits after the second will have no effect.

Spellpower: All items and effects which grant bonus to spell damage and spell healing are being consolidated into a single stat, Spellpower. This state will appear with the same values found on items which grant "increased spell damage and healing" such as on typical Mage and Warlock itemization

Entangling roots can now be used indoors!
Feral Charge can now be used in cat form.
Hurricane no longer has a cooldown.
Tree of Life form, can now cast all healing spell and decurse in form

*Mage: Conjured mana gems no longer disappear from your backpack after being logged out for more than 15 minutes. Higher ranks of Conjure Mana Gem will recharge an existing mana gem to maximum charges.

*Lame! Blessing of Salvation renamed Hand of Salvation, now reduces total threat on the target by 2% per second for 10 seconds while also reducing all damage and healing done by 10%.

*The Sunwell Plateau, Black Temple, and Serpentshrine Cavern Raid Dungeons have all had their mobs and bosses adjusted and now have less health points.

*New Calendar feature

*New Vanity Pet and Mount changes! wohoo. I have bag space again!!!

*Macros and keybinding are now saved server-side. AH yeah. no more copying over my WTF folder everywhere I go!

*Nothing said about nurfing the ZA Bear Mount reward!
