We have now made a several posts in various forums documenting some of the changes that are planned for 2.3.

Here we'll list the other changes that don't fit into any other category:

  • Auction House will now sort server side. If multiple pages exist you will be able to sort across all pages.
  • Auction House post times have been changed to 12, 24, and 48 hours. Deposit prices remain the same for each time increment.
  • You will now be able to ctrl-click a recipe to preview the item the recipe will create in the dressing room.
  • Ogri'la Faction Vendor: This vendor now sells potions useable anywhere for a large number of Apexis Shards. 50 shards, as good as super mana/heal pots.
  • We plan to make a new flying mount purchasable in 2.3. It will require Cenarion Expedition exalted reputation and cost around 2000g.
  • Healing Reduction effects now affect all Drain spells and abilities (e.g. Mortal Strike vs Drain Life)

  • Adding +damage to +healing gear. It should be noted that you shouldn't get it and sacrifice the +healing for it unless you are getting into crit dependent fights such as some mob fights or PvP.
  • Leveling curve adjustments are planned for the next major content patch, which should ease the levelling process while playing the Pre Burning Crusade content. More information on this will be released soonâ„¢
  • Mailbox: Sent mail will now have up to 12 slots for sending items.
  • New Auction House API(QueryAuctionItems([getAll])) allows you to scan the whole Auction House. This can only be used once every 15 minutes.
  • Escape Artist (Gnome Racial) cooldown increased to 1 min, 45 sec.
