PTR Patch Notes 3.0.8 Released

The first edition of the PTR notes have been released today. There is a lot of interesting things included.
Achievement: The Loremaster of Kalimdor Achievement has had its quest amount reduced.
This is great because I still have about 150-200 quests on both Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms missing.
Racial restrictions on mounts have now been lifted. Night elves on mechanostrider? Tauren on raptor? You're not seeing things.
Yeah! Grumble's not the only one who can ride a Robochicken!
Tapping: All player spells which cause a creature to become aggressive to you will now also immediately cause the creature to be tapped.
I could see this being bad depending on the situation. If you pull too many mobs out of a camp, the person beside you may not want to help you kill them because they wont get any exp or loot from them.
Aspect of the Wild - This aspect is now raid-wide.
Deterrence: Design changed to grant 100% parry and 100% chance to "deflect" spells coming from the front, but prevents the Hunter from attacking. Lasts 5 sec. 60 sec. cooldown.
Kill Shot – Cooldown reduced to 15 seconds, down from 35 sec.
Steady Shot: Now gains 10% of attack power as damage instead of 20%.
These are pretty much the same as the ones reported the other day.
Viper Sting: Now drains a percentage of maximum mana.
This is a great change. I remember doing ZG and we were told to mana drain the Bat Goddess. There was 4 Hunters back to back Viper Stinging and her mana was hardly going down. Now Viper could be much more useful in PvE.
Slow Fall is now castable on others.
Yeah! I won't die from falling now.
Gifts and Pledges of Adoration for the capital cities are now soulbound.
This means people will not be able to farm Peddlefoot on their alts and mail it to their main. People also will not be able to mail Romantic Picnic Baskets to others.
Reduced the stats on the Savage Cobalt Slicer to match the weapon's level.
Now I dont feel so bad for getting Fang of Truths.
The white Polar Bear mount is now the proper (larger) size.
This is the rare drop bear from the Amazons in Stormpeaks dailies.
