World of Warcraft last Lich beta patch notes:

- The continent of Northrend is now available! To travel there, visit one of four transportation masters in either Orgrimmar, Undercity, Theramore,or Menethil Harbor.
- The floating magical city of Dalaran is now available!
- The Barber Shop has been implemented and you can now visit one of the Barber Shops in the major cities to change your appearance.
- The all new Achievement System has been implemented.
- Transportation between Howling Fjord and Borean Tundra can be found at the Tuskarr villages in those zones.
- The level cap is currently set to 77.
- Hit Rating, Critical Strike Rating, and Haste Rating now modify both melee attacks and spells.
- Spell casting and spell channeling pushback has been changed to the following:
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 bonuses to spell damage and spell healing are being consolidated into a single stat, Spellpower. This stat will appear with the same values found on items which grant "increased spell damage and healing" such as on typical Mage and Warlock itemization.
For classes which do not heal, they should see no change in the character sheet other than new tooltip wording. Healing characters will see their bonus healing numbers on the character sheet decrease, however, all healing spells have been modified to receive more benefit from spellpower than they received from bonus healing, with a net effect of no change to the amount healed by their spells. Some talents have had to be rebalanced to
accommodate this change, but the amount healed will remain roughly the same. In addition, some talents will provide only healing spell power.

Undercity to Vengeance Landing (Howling Fjord)
