Patch 1.25 for WarCraft 3 was made available on the public test realm last Thursday. Below are the patch details.

Aside from a couple of balance changes, such as the Guard Tower Armor type changed to Fortified and Blade Master's Wind Walk duration reduced, we also see some big "fixes".

It is the Hex spell that have been heavily modified. Hex for example does no longer extend the duration of the Demon Hunter's Metamorphosis, does not disable mana or health regeneration of heroes, nor does it hinder heroes to purchase items from the shop.

Heroes who use a scroll of town portal at the same time as getting Hexed will now have their scroll intact.

The Wisp's Detonate ability does no longer drain mana from Heroes while under the effects of an Invulnerability potion.
