Patch 6.2.2 PTR patch notes updated with new flight-based rewards and more

More patch notes hit the PTR in advance of next Tuesday’s launch of patch 6.2.2, which introduces flying to Draenor. In addition to tweaked Horde racial abilities, new toys and Warlock ability nerfs in PVP comes a few features tied to flight.

In the Tanaan Jungle, new elite mobs that can only be accessed from the air will be introduced. New drops from these mobs include new Crashin’ Thrashin’ toys and the Spike-Toed Booterang. In Nagrand, new elite mobs that require flight to be found will drop new Manafiend battle pets.

If you’re into Bonus Events, those are now going to start earlier, on Wednesday, to give you more time to complete them.

Check out the latest updates to the PTR patch notes below.
